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!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
