The Perks of Being a Wallflower Moviegreat book, I’m excited to see it being made into a movie. The movie is being directed by Stephen Chbosky, no other than the author of the book itself so I’m hoping that it will be done right. The movie is spearheaded by Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. They represent the three core characters of the book – Charlie, Sam and Patrick. The heartfelt story is the story of growing up experiencing high school in all its humiliation, cruelty and joys.

Of Fantasy Weddings and such
I remember one conversation I had with her the other day about how costly the wedding was getting. It is indeed just that one day in their lives where the wedding is also a celebration with the family. I distinctly remember Monica from one episode of Friends going through the same thing and despite it being expensive and Chandler thinks it was a waste of money, he eventually gave in. My friend was complaining at how expensive the rent for the reception hall will be. I joked around at how she could just find a nice wide open garden where she can put up a white canvas tarp and have the reception held there.

Delightful Italian food at the Burgos Circle in Tuscano Italian Restaurant
Here’s a bit of a background about Tuscano. It takes its name from Tuscany, a region in Italy. Tuscano serves Italian cuisine but boasts of cooking in the traditional Italian way. They make use of fresh ingredients and they make pasta and pizza dough fresh each day too.
My Lazy Sunday

The Mark of Athena Chapter Preview
Friday, June 22, 2012 Books 0 Comments
The book that I’ve been waiting to be released is Mark of Athena, book three of the Heroes of Olympus trilogy. It’s promising to be jam-packed with action, mythology and finally the fulfillment of the Prophecy of Seven. If you’ve already read the first two books, then you must share in the anticipation. To quell it for a bit, Disney has offered a free read of a chapter from the book. (click on the picture to be taken to the site link)
The Mark of Athena
by Rick Riordan
In The Son of Neptune, Percy, Hazel, and Frank met in Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Camp Halfblood, and traveled to the land beyond the gods to complete a dangerous quest. The third book in the Heroes of Olympus series will unite them with Jason, Piper, and Leo. But they number only six--who will complete the Prophecy of Seven?
The Greek and Roman demigods will have to cooperate in order to defeat the giants released by the Earth Mother, Gaea. Then they will have to sail together to the ancient land to find the Doors of Death. What exactly are the Doors of Death? Much of the prophesy remains a mystery. . . . With old friends and new friends joining forces, a marvelous ship, fearsome foes, and an exotic setting, The Mark of Athena promises to be another unforgettable adventure by master storyteller Rick Riordan.
Production Stills from Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2
What I’m eager to see is how Bella will cope with being a newborn vampire while being a mother at the same time. How will Jacob’s relationship with the Cullens be, now that he has marked Bella’s daughter? Among the stills, you see Dakota Fanning making an appearance. Finally, will we see just how terrible a foe she can be?

Maleficent Starts FilmingLana Parrilla as Regina Mills/Evil Queen in Once Upon a Time, Angeline Jolie is now set to thrill us in the new Disney movie Maleficent which has just started filming. Maleficent will be the witch’s untold story and what events led to her to curse the baby Aurora. The film’s plot reminds me of Wicked, based from the story of the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz. The film will be directed by Robert Stromberg, the production designer of Avatar and Alice in Wonderland. This will be his directorial debut. Here’s a first look at Angelina Jolie as Maleficent.
Draw Something gets Revamped
Would you put Nail Polish on your Dog?
However, I don't think I would go as far as putting nail polish on my dogs. For one, they hate the smell and two, I'm scared that they would start to lick it and get tummy aches. I don't really see the point too. It looks ridiculous on them. Oh and I also dislike those little shoes that people sometimes put on toy dogs. Come on people, they need the pads of their paws to walk. Those shoes just strain their little legs more.

Cloudstone Facebook Game: First Impressions
The game is not hard to kickstart and I mostly breezed through the tutorial and just skimming through the instructions. If you're adept with RPG then you can do without those. There are 3 classes to choose from as of now - Warrior, Wizard and Monk. I chose the Monk. I don't know I'm just particularly fond of monks. Even in Diablo III my character IS a monk too. You can customize your character through the various options available but you won't get to do so until you've done quite a number of quests.

Never Seconds Banned and UnbannedNever Seconds when I saw it on my Huffington Post feed. It was of a nine year old blogger who was revolutionizing the way food is served in school cafeterias. Martha goes by the name of Veg in her blog. Veg stands for (no not vegetarian) Veritas Ex Gusto which is Latin for Truth from Tasting.
She writes about what she had for lunch, takes a picture of them and then gives them ratings. Her site received a very positive response. She has raised awareness about the importance of nutrition in schools, she has encouraged other kids to submit their lunch pictures and she posts them on Never Seconds and she has helped to raise funds for building a kitchen through Mary’s Meal in Malawi. I had put this topic down on my blogging notebook but due to the extremely hectic schedule for work I had the past weeks, I wasn’t able to write about it until I saw Neil Gaiman’s tweet the other day.
Guilty Wives Book Review
by James Patterson and David Ellis
Four best friends on a decadent vacation.
NO HUSBANDS ALLOWED
Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, highstakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.
WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?
In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime - for survival.

Rock of Ages Movie Review
Don't need nothin' but a good time
How can I resist
Ain't lookin' for nothin' but a good time
And it don't get better than this
-Nothin’ but a good time by Poison
That was the song I kept singing while driving home the other night from watching at the premiere of Rock of Ages. It had been a long day for me and watching the movie was a great way to end my day. Although I haven’t seen the musical where the movie Rock of Ages was adapted from, I was already counting on the soundtrack for this movie to be really good. Other than that, the other reason why I wanted to see it was Tom Cruise. Throughout his long career and for all the movies of his that I have already seen, the only time that I saw him sing was at one scene in Jerry Maguire. Most of the trailers released for Rock of Ages only had glimpses of him on the stage so I got really curious if he really had a singing voice to pull that off.
Win P20,000 by Joining the Kotex Contest
Thursday, June 14, 2012 Beauty Fashion and Health 0 Comments
I wouldn’t compromise my personal style just to conform.My personal style is what makes me “ME” and it’s these subtle details that I add to what I wear, how I write, how I design interiors, how I interact with my personal belongings and how I treat the events of my life that define my personality. Kotex’ new campaign encourages women not to be ruled by inhibitions and fear. Their stand is that modern Filipina women (the modern Maria Clara) of today should not compromise their passions. Likewise, think about that one thing that you would never compromise too and combine it with something that you think you can do fearlessly or been wanting to do for some time but has never dared yourself to do. That winning idea can grant you the chance to win Php 20,000. All you have to do is grab that video camera and capture it all on film. Are you the modern Maria Clara they’re looking for?
At the Kotex Launch, A Modern Maria Clara doesn’t CompromiseKotex a few days ago. I was really attracted to the marketing campaign tagline - The Modern Maria Clara doesn’t compromise. I’m very supportive of any campaign that empowers women especially one that promotes how Filipina women of today doesn’t let their periods and inhibitions get in the way of doing what they love and what they dare themselves to do.
Island Hopping at the Hundred Islands
Sunday, June 10, 2012 Travel 0 Comments
There are currently 124 islands recorded at the Hundred Islands National Park. Yes, for those of you not in the know, it has been declared a National Park. Traveling to Pangasinan takes about five hours so prepare yourself for a long travel time. It’s ideal that you set to leave in the wee hours of the morning to reach Pangasinan by mid-morning. The Hundred Islands are actually a cluster of coral beds that are 2 million years old. During that time, it was submerged in water. The water has since receded and now we’re left with these island clusters.

John Krasinski as Adam in Big Miracle
In the movie Big Miracle, John Krasinski takes on the role of Adam Carlson, a local news reporter in Anchorage who covered the true story of stranded whales. To prepare for his role, he read the book from which the movie is based from and he looked through the actual news footages that were aired during that time. Ken Kwapis swears by the acting prowess of John Krasinski wherein he can actually connect to audiences emotionally. Perfectly enough, there are emotional scenes in the movie which John flawlessly executed.
Big Miracle is coming soon in theaters worldwide.
Disney Releases New Trailer for Brave
In this new trailer, you’ll notice more of the things Merida did when she ventured out of her father’s realm in search of changing her fate and there were also shots of her facing perils and monsters. It’s looking to be one very big adventure for a great looking Disney/Pixar movie and I just can’t wait for August to come rolling around.
Are you Afraid of the Dark?
It got me thinking too, just what is it about the darkness that makes it particularly frightening?Add to that, when did it become so when our ancestors didn't have electricity at night and had only the stars as night lights. Well for me, I remember why I'm not such a fan of horror movies. It's one thing to be able to read them in book and for the monsters just to be imagined in my mind and another thing to see them on-screen in all their monstrosity.
