Catching Fire Advance Screening with Hunger Games Philippines

As I have mentioned before, Catching Fire is my favorite book in The Hunger Games trilogy. So I made sure that I will be one of the first to see it on the big screen. When I found out that Astroplus, MCA Music, and Hunger Games Philippines were to organize an advance screening, I literally jumped for excitement and spent out some moolah for the tickets! 

Last November 20, fans head off to SM Megamall Cinema 12 for the most anticipated movie of the year! Sorry I don't have photos guys, our cameras and cellphones were confiscated for the moment. (T_T) So just take my word for it. (^_^) But I do have a few photos of the things I got which I took at home. 

The deal was to buy a Deluxe Edition Catching Fire Original Soundtrack and you get a ticket for free! That was a steal. 

The ticket and the Catching Fire OST 
I arrived at the venue at around 6:00 PM, but the queue was way too long for comfort already. I didn't expect to see a lot of fans an hour before the screening. So all of us stood and waited for a long long time. 

While on queue, I saw familiar faces from previews events. The fans of The Hunger Games are intelligent, fashionable, and well-mannered. That is how much influence a politically and socially relevant book can have. I'm proud to be a Tribute (LOL!). I also saw the people behind Hunger Games Philippines but I was too shy to approach them. Heehee~ 

At 6:45, they started to let people in the cinema. Each of us were given free coffee at the gates. Just the thing we need, coffee for a nighttime screening. Yay!

Yay free coffee! 
There was a short program before the movie started. Angel from Hunger Games Philippines gave us all a warm welcome. She hosted the games and raffle, too. Unfortunately, my ticket number didn't win. I guess the odds were not in my favor. LOL! Prizes from Urban Ears was up for grabs. Oohhh..... It was all so pretty and colorful (Sorry guys, no pictures).

Come 8:00 PM, the lights were dimmed for the movie, but not after a series of trailers which heightened the anticipation and excitement of the audience for Catching Fire. And when it started, screams and shouts filled the cinema! On screen was Katniss Everdeen, then everyone fell silent. 

It was fun to watch with fellow Tributes, we got emotional altogether. We laughed, screamed, cried, all of our reactions were the same. Ah~ So this is how it feels to be seeing a movie with a fandom where you belong. I absolutely love it and would like to have some more! 

At the end of the movie, we clapped and shouted our loudest yet.The director, Francis Lawrence, really pulled out all the stops to breathe life into the pages of story. Watch out for my movie review of it next week, guys! 

Phew... it's been so long since I wrote a lengthy post with few pictures. But I really need to share this. I had a wonderful time with fans and Hunger Games Philippines. Thanks a lot, HGP, for all the hard work you do for The Hunger Games trilogy. See you again in future events!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
