I Miss Blogging

It's been a month since my unannounced HIATUS and I shall give you an update before anything else..

 Let's see when I look back, August and September felt like its a curse at the same time a blessing since its the start of me entering to the real world AKA working person/jobless person XD.

Im happy that even I'm a newly grad I already got a job though its one of the reason why my schedule is so hectic and I dont have the time to blog and socializing since I'm so lazy to move when weekend comes. hahaha 

AND another thing that I dont like in my schedule is I can't go to church since my schedule is conflict with the church schedule also I cant attend our Victory Group and one 2 one, this is my most top 1 hate reason currently in my life right now. And since I'm so lazy most of the time, my mind is not open in OT. (overtime) I love to spend my weekends chilling thank you very much!! 
I hate changes... but.. people always said that..

"Nothing is permanent except CHANGE."

All Time Low Concert here in MANILA

The boys are set to return to Manila for what is expected to be a massively successful show that will definitely get you off your feet and moving to the beat of their hits like, “Somewhere in Neverland,” “Dear Maria, Count Me In,” and “I Feel Like Dancin.” This is the first time the band is coming back to our shores after their very well-received appearance in Bazooka Rocks II in 2013.

    All Time Low was formed by high school friends Alex Gaskarth (vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards), Jack Barakat (lead guitar), Zack Merrick (bass), and Rian Dawson (drums) in 2003. They released their debut studio album The Party Scene in 2005. In 2006, the same year they graduated from high school, the guys dropped the EP Put Up or Shut Up under Hopeless Records and began touring. Their second full-length release So Wrong, It’s Right was released in 2007 and peaked at No. 6 on the US Independent Albums chart and the second single from the album “Dear Maria, Count Me In” was certified Gold despite never being played on the radio.

    Their most successful album to date is 2009’s Nothing Personal which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. Their subsequent releases, 2011’s Dirty Work and 2012’s Don’t Panic,were almost equally as successful with both peaking at No. 6 on the same chart.

Minions - Official Trailer

Minions is an upcoming American 3D computer-animated comedy film and a prequel/spin-off to Despicable Me (2010) and Despicable Me 2 (2013).

Produced by Illumination Entertainment for Universal Pictures. Written by Brian Lynch, it will be directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.

Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve history's most despicable masters. After accidentally destroying all their masters, including a T. Rex, Genghis Khan, Napoleon and Dracula, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. By 1968, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so Kevin comes up with a plan to find a new one.


Bob has "Heterochromia iridum." His eyes are two different colors.

This is planned to be the longest Despicable Me film to date.

Unfriended (Revenge comes online.)


Unfolds over a teenager's computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier.
While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it's a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends' darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something from beyong this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl's computer desktop, Cybernatural redefines "found footage" for a new generation of teens.


The film is being considered as both controversial and 'insensitive' as the film is based around cyber-bullying, a major problem is today's society.

May Powers ka to be #SUPEREPIC

May Powers Ka To Be #SuperEpic

Published by OMF Literature September 2014 
Genres: Inspirational Book
Pages: 105


May mga “powers” tayo bilang kabataan. Nag-uumapaw tayo sa idealism at sa desire na makatulong sa ibang tao. We want to “change the world.” We want to create #SuperEpic impact to our world.

Ang problema, madalas, hindi natin alam kung saan mag-uumpisa. Kaya hintay lang tayo ng hintay for the right time.

Ito ang good news, hindi naman natin kailangang hintayin na magkaroon tayo ng mahiwagang bato o barbel. Optional din ang pagsusuot ng makulay na costume.

Yan ang purpose ko sa librong “#SuperEpic.” You will read lessons for youth leadership from the lives of superheroes from the Marvel at DC universe.

Maraming pwedeng matutunan sa kanila—mula sa pagte-train sa sarili for action, sa pagdiscover ng iyong passion at vision, pati na rin ang pag-assemble ng team. Kasama rin siempre ang conflict management, at ang pag-iwas sa mga bagay na maaaring magpabagsak sa iyo.

It’s an exciting time to be a young person: May Powers Ka to be #SuperEpic!

Introduction: Huwag nang Hintayin ang Mahiwagang Bato o Barbel

1. Great Power equals Great Responsibility
2. Train for Action
3. Flame On, Pero Huwag Ma-Burnout
4. Aim, then Fire
5. Assemble Your Team
6. Smash the Problem, not the People
7. Iwasan ang Kryptonite

Be #SuperEpic! Let's Make a Difference

Front Cover

Back Cover

Is a fun, informative and an easy-read book perfect for young people, Generally, the discussions in the book are about superheroes stories connected to we encounter in the present and in the near future, its also about the value of vision and leadership.

I learn and love all the topic but my favorite part would be the chapter 4 & 5: Aim, then Fire & Assemble your team, especially my life now it chance my perspective because I admit I'm kinda pessimist in life and reading this guide me and give me strength that whatever happened in life you could conquer it with God by your side and right management in your life.

It worth reading and its taglish so its easier to be understood especially by youth.

What others are saying about May Powers ka to be #SUPEREPIC:

Manipis lang ang librong ito at madaling basahin lalo na’t naka-Taglish at madaling makaka-relate dito ang mga mambabasang mga batang 90s, sumusubaybay sa mga kwentong superheroes at mga taong feeling hopeless na para magamit pa ang buhay upang makagawa ng pagbabago dito sa mundo at di pa nadi-discover ang sariling abilities at powers inside!

Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron"

Plot Summary

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. 

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.  Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. 

Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”(


* Scarlett Johansson was pregnant during filming of this movie so her scenes had to be shot first before she began to show.

* To help hide Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy, three stunt doubles were hired. This caused a lot of confusion among the other actors since, according to them, all of the stunt women looked very similar to Johansson. Chris Evans stated that it got to the point where he would say hello and start a conversation with one of them, only to realize mid way that the person he was talking to wasn't Johansson.

 Lip Gloss

Lip gloss & Lipstick on my lips Iced Candy

BYS means Be Yourself. by the way. Cute tagline right?

I’m such a late bloomer when it comes to makeup. I just started using lipstick in my Senior year in collage 1st semester and I was forced to wear make-up because of my OJT. I was designate in Human Resource department and the rules are to wear makeup! And that’s how I learned wearing lipstick and I also getting used to applying face powder.

When I was a child I heard alot of rumors that using lipstick your lips will get darker and of course who would want to turn your pink lips into blueberry horror right? (I like my lips just fine, thak you very much!) or mistake you for using cigarettes and once I an article that lipstick contains fishscales! hahaha, Thats why I stay away from cosmetics until now. But I love watching or reading how to apply make-up it’s so fascinating and I kept telling myself "someday" hahaha

Anyway onto the review 

The Iced Candy is like a Lipstick from Barbie. It’s a vibrant pastel color of pink, and when you have a pinkish lip it would look pale on you or it doesn't have any effect just makes your lip shine but no color.

What I like about it:

1. The lipstick side is creamy and pigmented.
2. The lipgloss has a very nice scent
3. The gloss side is creamy, smooth and non-sticky.
4. Glides easily when applied on the lips
5. Both sides can be worn on its own or worn together!
6. Lightly scented.
7. Widely available in Manila
8. Affordable price
9. 2-in-1 lip product.  You get a lipstick and gloss for the price of 1!

What I don't like about it:

1. Staying power is bad (more or less 1 hr without eating)
2. I feel like the cover of the lipstick will crack and break anytime soon
3. The packing might be a turn off to some as it's long

I probably won't repurchase this product because I like Covergirl even its quiet pricey and I'm not satisfied with the staying power. But if you don't mind retouching, then this product will work for you!

Where to purchase and how much?

BYS cosmetics are available in major SM Department stores and Watson's Beauty Outlets nationwide. BYS Lip Gloss and Lipstick Duo costs Php299.00

Cinderella (Disney's Cinderella)


The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella, whose merchant father remarries after the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods.

 Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming "Kit". Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as her fairy godmother, disguised as a kindly beggar woman, steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever.

Cinderella is an upcoming 2015 American live-action fantasy film directed by Kenneth Branagh, and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is inspired by the fairy tale "Cinderella" by Charles Perrault, and the 1950 animated film of the same name. It stars Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine and Lily James as Cinderella, respectively.


* The lead role was offered to Emma Watson but she declined.

* When approaching the project with a deep understanding of the fairy tale's history, Kenneth Branagh said, "It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we've all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker."
