Fair point well made, Mr. Grey.


Just in case you haven't seen my blog post about Book I, here it is. That blog post did give me a lot of blog hits by the way, as of now 589 hits since I posted it. Wow Mr. Grey. The effect you have on people. :)

If you haven't heard of the trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, you must be out of this world. I mean it's everywhere! I've seen it everywhere and the curious that I am, I had to check it out to know why people are fussing so much about it.

I finished the first book in my iPod though since I don't have the books that time yet. It took me a week to finish it and my inner goddess was so satisfied. Had no single stain of regrets of reading it. It was so different from all the books I used to read.

After the first book, I started reading the second book, Fifty Shades Darker, a week after since I was so busy then. I got to read a good 6 chapters maybe then I had to stop. It was during the habagat when I stopped because current was out and I couldn't use my dead batt iPod. Right after the habagat incident, Thursday of the same week to be exact, I bought the set. And my inner goddess is clapping her hands while jumping up and down.

It took me almost a month to finish the book since I had my prelims a week ago, I was so busy with all the demands in my online shop plus the LET self-review I have to cope up with, I hardly had the time to sit with the book for a good couple of hours. But then last night I was so determined to finish it. Fortunately I was able to finish it even before I hit the time I set for myself to sleep.

So, Fifty Shades Darker, it was better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Well, there was less erotic scenes and more love scenes. It was all about feelings. No more sex-for-the-contract thingy but there was sex-for-the-sake-of-love.

The book was so romantic! Christian Grey was all over Ana Steele, in a loving way. He's doing everything to prove to her that he really loves her. The problem with him is he's so jealous with anything Ana wants. Sometimes it's just to much for Ana but what the heck, he's Christian Grey for god's sake. He is so dreamy. He's like the man every girl could dream of. Every word, every phrase and every sentence he say to Ana like, "You were everything me," "I am yours and you are all mine," and the like, he's such the perfect guy, for me I suppose. One megalomaniac and hot Mr. Grey please.

Ana here, just can't live with Christian's past. What is her problem! I mean she's everything what Christian Grey wants, the Mr. Christian Grey himself! What more could she ask for?!!! There were a lot of parts in the book where I get irritated and annoyed with Ana. Why can't she just forget about Christian's past, or his "lifestyle" and just focus on his future, which is she, and them together. But I love how she handled herself in the end of the book against Elena. Strong girl, Ms. Steele.

What to find in this book:
  • No more Red Room of Pain erotic scenes
  • More sex scenes from all over the place like billiard table, grand piano, elevator and more
  • Get to know more about the Grey's
  • Deeper knowledge about Christian's past
  • Ana Steele's new job
  • Christian and Ana's romantic encounters
  • Christian's ex's revenge
  • Near-death experience
And a whole lot more! Like I said, it is better than the first book.

Here's the catch, the ending is quite a mystery though. At first I thought it was Elena but it keeps on saying "he" so I though it could be Jack. And maybe it was really him. And maybe he has something to do with Christian's Charlie Tango incident. Hmmmm. Quite fascinating and hanging too!

This only proves that the heart sees what the mind can't see. The heart feels what the mind can't feel. It was nothing like compared to what Christian had ever felt before. With Ana, it was a whole new life.

I would like to post a separate blog post about my Fifty Shades Darker photoblog. That will be soon but as for the meantime, I shall just post the photos related to this from my instagram. :)

What a lovely it has been with Christian and Ana. I'll start reading Book III, Fifty Shades Freed prolly this Friday or this weekend for I will be very busy with school this remaining weekdays. Can't wait! :)

My thoughts only: If you are reading the Fifty Shades trilogy and this is your first time to ever really read a book, does that mean anything about you? People these days. Do you really love to read or you just love the thrill Fifty Shades is giving you. Don't judge, I'm just saying.

Marry me, Christian?

Arm Candies

Current fashion trend together with the aztec/tribal print, ombre and neon colors, is the arm candies!

I remember when I was still in grade school, I make beaded bracelets and sell it on my grandma's dry goods' store in Centro. As young as I was back then, the materials I used where plain and simple, just beads and an elastic string. No more, no less. It was just a matter of how creative I can get to mix the beads I had.

But now that I am older, not really old but older than I was back then, haha the materials I'm using now improved and are more. And my bracelets, currently trended as arm candies, have more art in it!

Without further ado, here are some of my arm candies. I only made them by myself. Yaay! Here are some of my favorites. :)

You can have all these at my friendly online shop Green Berries!

I swear to you, we sell the cheapest arm candies in town. You won't regret it.

Arm candies, once you had a taste of it, you'll love it even more!

You're my Wonderwall dear One Direction

Have you listened to One Direction's cover of Oasis' Wonderwall already? If yes, you are blessed, but if you haven't yet then I feel sorry for you cause you're missing out one of the finest music in the music industry.

It was shot during the set of the What Makes You Beautiful music video in Malibu California. The WMYB music video was filmed last July 2011, so that's a year ago! And obviously the One Direction version of Wonderwall is in their storage for more than a year already!

Why release it only now? It is music at its finest! Just 5 boys and a guitar all I can hear is perfection! Pure music right there. Their voices plus the guitar, so lovely.

Plus! Just look how hot they look! They just sit there and sing but still looking good. Effortless!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you my boys from One Direction singing Wonderwall by Oasis!

I love how it shows Niall's guitar skills. I love the part where Harry drummed the drums part after the chorus. I love how Zayn proves to everyone that he is the master of echo. I love how serious Liam looks when he sings. And of course, I love how comfortable Louis sits in his blanket plus he's barefoot.

I love these boys so much! Look how comfortable they are with each other. Just 5 boys doing what they love to do. <3 Not just 5 boys though, but 5 good-looking boys. :)

This song is special to me though. I might consider doing a cover of it myself. Haha. But please don't expect too much because I don't sing well. I can play the guitar, fair enough, but trust me I don't sing. Hahaha. :))

What's not to love about One Direction?

Ohlaloove Share Your Blessings Giveaway

No I'm not doing another giveaway here. Haha. Not sooner than later maybe I could but not on this post. =p

So basically, I won a blog giveaway by Ohlaloove. Yaaay! I forgot how I ended up on their blog. I just tried joining and guess what I still won!

One day I was checking my email and then I got an email from Ms. Monique Galang and she told me that I won her blog giveaway. I was so overwhelmed because it ain't easy to win blog giveaway's you know. Small or huge blog giveaway, still, it is still a giveaway. I'm very grateful that I won, though unexpectedly.

Got the package last Tuesday lunch. I was so giddy to open it when I first glanced it. Haha. Excited much I know! Here are the stuff that I won. Posted it in my instagram.

Just look at those cute arm candies, now added to my collection. That lovely choker and earrings goes well together! I'm currently using that cellphone holder, just right for my BlackBerry. Might use those pink straps on my digi-cam. Hair oil too, to keep my hair steady and the Jergens lotion for my skin. (commercial ad lang ang peg. haha)

It went with a not too. Cute!

Loved them! Thank you so much Ohlaloove! And more blessings to you! :)

Step Up Revolution

The biggest dance movie is back with its fourth installment! The first time I saw its trailer I know I shouldn't miss it in the world. I've always been an avid fan of the Step Up movies, ever since Channing Tatum made me fall in love with his dance moves. It was the first time I fell in love with him! <3

There came the second installment where Adam Sevani or famously known as Moose showed up in the movie. And since then, I'd love him to death. He's so cute admit it! His locks are so precious!

So last Friday, August 10, the "habagat week", I went to Gateway with my siblings and my Mom to see the movie Step Up 4 Revolution. After the movie we had a snack at Taco Bell then went home.

Everyone is so stoke about seeing Moose on the 4th installment, but unfortunately it was a whole different story. Though he was surprisingly there at the end of the movie. But his appearance was so bitin! Haha.

Like I said, it was a whole different kind of movie. Unlike the first 3 Step Up movies where they have their own crews and they battle to win in a dance battle, Step Up Revolution isn't like that. Yes they have their own crew but they didn't go to battles, they dance to win in a YouTube contest. It's more like in a modern kind of setting like how the technology revolves around us now.

It was more of a crew who do surprise flash mobs and they upload on YoutTube hoping to get that 10,000,000 hits. Well, in order to get that number of hits, their crew called The Mob, did a lot of unique surprise flash mobs everywhere. They were amazingly very good! Each setting and routine were very different and very catchy.

The plot was really good. At first I was thinking about the antagonist in the movie like, who is against them. There weren't really, just them themselves.

Basta! You just have to watch it to understand it more. Don't worry cause even if you're not really a fan of dancing, you'll still love it. :)

Here's the trailer if you wanna see a sneak peak of it.

The guy bida is so hot. Just look at those arms and abs. To die for! Hahaha. The girl bida is so pretty. She sometimes resembles Katy Perry.

I love The Mob! Do you love The Mob?

UST-DLSU Round 1

This post was in draft for more than 4 days already. Haha! Sorry bout that. :))

I have always been a UAAP fan. I remember season 69 when UST grabbed the gold for the men's basketball senior division. It was epic! I was in 3rd year high school back then. It was a thursday, kasi umabot ng game 3 yung championship between UST and Ateneo. Si Jojo Duncil pa star player ng UST nun and it was Coach Pido Jarencio's first coaching year sa UST. Bongga ng pilot year! So bale, we have afternoon classes nun and I have a friend na taga-update ng game. May katext siya na nanunuod ng game. Every once in a while updated kami sa score. Umabot pa ng overtime yung game! And UST won by 2! It was really epic! Naabutan ko pa yung OT sa bahay eh. Haha. The famous missed free throws ni Japs Cuan na sana more than 2 ang lamang ng UST. Okay, nagkwento na ako? :))

Fast forward to the present, last Saturday, Jaja, Jamie and I watched the UST-DLSU match live at MOA Arena. It's my first time watching this season but I have watched a few back in my college years.

We had a hard time getting to MOA because it was raining hard. From UST we had to take a cab but there were some people who were looking for cab besides us. So maraming karibal. Fortunately, by 1:10 we got a cab and went directly to the venue. Good thing the traffic was a bit light though thinking we couldn't make it to the 2pm game.

When we arrived the arena, there were very long lines waiting to get in the venue for the game. But we were just in time when we got in. The first five players were being called when we found our seats. Just in time!

It looks like an Abdul-Andrada match up here.

Our very cute and friendly Yellow Jackets.

Now it's Afuang and DLSU's number 9 guy match up.

Our very own Tata Bautista!

The two Jeric's of UST.

This huge face poster of Coach Pido totally nailed it.

I've witnessed this UST-DLSU halftime break before already. I was expecting to see it again in this match and guess what, they didn't let me down. It's so good to see UST and DLSU being friends after all this time. :)

Yellow and green looks so good together!

Yellow being my school's color and green being my favorite color. I'm so into this!

Sea of yellow crowd.

Good job guys!

Abdul-Ramos! It's Ramos right? :))

O! Depensa!

Eeeeh! Ooohhh!

Clash of the Ti-Tengs. Kuya Jeric vs Baby Jeron!

Final score!

Good finish boys.

Next game, ADMU-UE. 

Jaja and Jamie :)

Us three.

Me and Mom :)

And look what I found in TomasinoWeb's facebook, it's us on the yellow crowd during the game! I just came across this on facebook and instantly spotted us. Haha. Plus it's on a Jeric Fortuna shot pa. Weee. <3 Haha.

I want to share to you guys pa naman sana a lot of stuff about this match pero nawala nang lahat ng yun because of the days lost dahil sa habagat na yan. Haaay. I'd make bawi next time on my next UAAP blog post. :)

Next match is on Sunday vs the UE Red Warriors, 4pm at the Araneta Coliseum. I'll be watching on tv land coz I just want to stay home for the rest of the day tomorrow.

There's a replay of this UST-DLSU match tomorrow at Studio23 around 9:30 in the evening. I'd definitely see it! I wanna see how it was on tv while I was busy shouting in the arena. And I wanna see the loud yellow crowd. :)

Go loud and proud, Go USTe!
