[Game Review] Blood Bound (Choices)

I have always been a story devourer. From books to Netflix, I eat ‘em all. One of my current obsessions is the mobile game Choices. I started playing this about a year ago. Choices is about choosing your response to the story, and the events will proceed depending on your decision. 

The books need keys to open a chapter. The ingame currency that you would need to unlock specific scenes are called Diamonds. You can wait for free keys, which refreshes every two hours. Free Diamonds are given for every chapter finished or you can watch an ad. If you have extra moolah, you can always buy keys and diamonds via credit card.

The first Choices book that I finished was The Freshman, a heartwarming tale of a girl entering college and her crazy adventures. But that’s a story for another time. For now, I’ll talk about Blood Bound, a vampire-romance story. And don't worry, it's spoiler-free! 


Cover art is awesome!


I know, I know... it’s kinda cliché. But I’m amazed at how the writers at Choices reimagined the legend of vampires. Set in New York city, it is a mix of both the modern and old times. It’s a new concept of clans and vampire evolution. And here’s the thing, thank God there are no werewolves!

Rating: 4/5 stars 


Characters: 

My main character is a young adult girl discovering the big city. Another feature that I like is the customization of your digital self. I chose to be a long-haired girl, a look perfect for the corporate world.

My main character's name is derived from mine.

There are a lot of love interests, depending on your preference. I chose the handsome CEO. Hihihi~ So my own kind of story is Twilight and Fifty Shades mash up. *wink wink*

The CEO, Adrian Raines. Handsome. :)

The supporting characters and villains can’t be customised, however. But you’ll love them all the same. 

It's girl power with Kamilah!

Oh! The dresses and hairstyles are beautiful! It was very tempting to buy. But yeah... expensive. 

Nice dress but expensive. :(

Plot:

The world building was good. It explained the existence of vampires per episode. So there’s mystery all throughout as you go into the story. That, and the suspenseful plot leaves you wanting for more. It’s so thrilling and action-packed! I want to talk more but there will be spoilers. So *zips mouth*. 

The romantic scenes are so kilig! Even the free ones which come with the book itself. However, if you want to build a strong romantic relationship and some steamy scenes, you have to buy it with diamonds. Awwww~



Writing, Art Style, and Music:

The narrations and character lines are written like a script. Some are serious and others are funny. But one thing’s for sure. The writers did an amazing job of getting me to cry or fear for my character’s life. It’s like I’m really into the book and living the story myself. 

The art and music are something I always look forward to. Choices is a book with visuals. Like, literally! The settings, the character expressions... they’re all in tune with the mood. The music, too, is the one best factor of Choices. And together, they all work together in giving an immersive story for you to enjoy. 


Conclusion: 

Blood Bound made me swoon over vampires again. It is a well-written story with a balance of action and romance. But the downside is it's expensive. However beautiful the dresses, bonus chapters, and romantic scenes... buying them with Diamonds can be costly. The game can be more expensive than real books. So if ever you buy Diamonds (like me), make sure you spend it wisely.

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
