Scenes from the 2016 BDJ Fair

Last weekend, after doing my weekend chores, I headed down to the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall where the 2016 BDJ Fair was being held. I was surprised that the place was packed with people and the entire area was brimming with activites. There was a storm that weekend and despite the gloomy weather, the turnout was pretty good. Upon registering, visitors were greeted by this selling booth. This is also where eager bellas can see the lineup of 2017 planners from the Belle de Jour team.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge

Just when you thought that we have seen the last of Captain Jack Sparrow, here he comes again in the upcoming movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge. This is the exclusive title released for the film when it opens in theaters here in the Philippines on May 24th of next year. It is alternatively called Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in the US.


Meet the Characters in Doctor Strange

Here’s a little more to satiate your excitement for the upcoming Marvel film, Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Let’s get to know the other characters in the movie. First up of course is Doctor Stephen Strange himself. He is a brilliant doctor with exceptional skills and an outstanding career. He is quite arrogant and when he got involved in a tragic accident, it cost him his entire career. It is through this yearning to redeem himself that he crosses paths with The Ancient One, who will teach him the ways of the Mystic Arts.

15-Minute Dose of Doctor Strange

Last week, we got to experience 15-minutes of movie footage from the upcoming and much-awaited movie, Doctor Strange. The visual journey offered a sneak peek of what we can look forward to when the movie officially opens in theaters on October 26th. The experience left me tingling with excitement and eagerness for the opening day to finally arrive.

Three Ways to Access Google Keep

One of the note-taking apps that I frequently use is Google Keep. It’s a simple note-taking app that lets you create simple color-coded notes and lists on  your device and sync it via the power of the cloud. Google Keep lets you also share these notes and lists to friends and collaborators so that you can edit notes simultaneously. Just recently, these notes can be made friendlier and more searchable through the use of categories and tags.

Upcoming Movie: Keeping Up with the Joneses

Seeing the trailer for Keeping Up with the Joneses had me laughing so hard. It had been too long since I’ve seen Zach Galifianakis on the the big screen and oh boy I’m glad he’s back. Starring alongside him in this film dubbed as “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” meet “Date Night”, are Isla Fisher, Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm.

New Trailer: Rogue One

Star Wars fans have much to be happy about come the end of the year with the release of the standalone film, Rogue One. Fresh from the studios of Lucasfilm, we get to see an all new epic adventure that is set in the Star Wars universe. I guess this is a timely move to amp up the anticipation for the next chapter in the Star Wars Saga.

I’m very excited to announce that the much awaited BDJ Fair is set to happen this weekend on October 16 at the SM MOA, Music Hall. Aside from raising funds to help advocacies, the BDJ Fair is also the event where the next year’s set of Belle de Jour (BDJ) Power Planners are unveiled and made available to very lucky fair attendees at a discounted price. The planners to be launched are the BDJ Power Planners, NAVI, Everything is Possible, Focus Journal and all the other new BDJ Paper products.

Movie Trailer: Allied

Ever wonder about the movie that brought about the rumors of a Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard affair? Well, here it is. They’ve just released the new trailer for Allied and I must tell you that it reminded me so much of Mr. and Mrs. Smith albeit in a more serious way. The movie’s plot appears to be heavy and will test any perceived notions you have of love, trust and marriage.
