Breaking Dawn I

Few minutes back, I got to download one of the most awaited movies this 2011, Breaking Dawn Part 1. I read the book so I was more of engrossed how the story from the book will be shown in the big screen.

I’m not sure I was mesmerized but I wasn’t frustrated either. I guess the movie didn’t amaze me that much.

Of all the Twilight movies so far, I’ve been viewing headlong to Breaking Dawn the most. As this is where we’ll see Edward Cullen and Bella Swan marry, Bella malformed into a vampire and their fusion baby coming out.

The wedding was tremendous! I really couldn’t stop looking out Bella’s dress, it was gorgeous! She was wearing a backless dress, I wonder who made her dress. I perceived that it was made by designer Carolina Herrera. So stunning, really.

While I liked the wedding ceremony and the bride’s dress, I somehow didn’t like the horrible dream that Bella had before the wedding. It was kinda’ odd. Red petals, blood, blood, blood and full of human corpses, uhmmm.. I don’t know, I felt they could have made it much better. Instead of being scared by that scene, I ended up feeling “really?”.

Jacob Black’s heart breaking acts were a bit exaggerated. Still, I speculate in real life, we do tend to overreact too, particularly when we feel strongly about someone. Unrequited love is super painful. I feel for Jacob. Can I have him instead? ;)

The honeymoon scenes, on the other hand, were well-made. Wow! I never thought they could make honeymoon scenes so kid-friendly! Thriving, we don’t presume the typical bosom scenes as it was amongst a human and a vampire. I won’t explicate any more as I’d like to let you see it for yourself.

The utmost thrilling part of Twilight: Breaking Dawn for me was the whole pregnancy story. How Bella struggled for her unborn baby, the way Jacob protected her and the Cullen family, the way Edward tried to save his wife and child, how Bella changed from being a human into a vampire and how the Cullen family substantiated what the word, “family” really meant.

Generally, I liked the first part of the final chapter of the Twilight Saga. Breaking Dawn has shown the story clearly. Nevertheless, it was a bit too cheesy. There was a scene that I cannot get out of my head. It was too hilarious. Bella said when they were talking about baby names, “Let’s name our baby EJ if it’s a boy (EJ = Edward Jacob)”. OMG, I giggled so hard that I forgot my hubby and my two little angels are sleeping Description: :)

My friend told me that she misses my writing. And I realized I actually missed it too. I miss the freedom it gives me every time I get the opportunity to express myself. I missed that and reading. I guess I was just too preoccupied by my work and with life that I forgot to pander myself with the frills I used to have – that is reading and writing.


One day when the dust relaxes, I’d take it to the road again. To do that very thing I’ve been looking in my mind since I can barely remember. To feel the power of being in control yet knowing not where it will lead and still feel at peace. The wind will blow my hair to wherever, yet I will not even care. The sun will burn my skin but that will be the reminder of my journey. To travel the world with eyes full of wonder, that’s what the movie in my mind has always been playing, ever since I could remember.


Now I see peaceful mornings bathing in bright rooms and sipping coffee in lazy afternoons. Watching it doze off while I pretend to sleep just to stare of that peculiar and yet serene exquisiteness that only sleep can make.
Ever since, I’ve been looking different sights, of laughter amidst the rain and enjoying simple pleasures of doing nothing.


But then again, one day, I will certainly travel. And so in the imminent I know I will not only watch movies in my head nevertheless genuine memories, at that non-familiar road, walking with my hand still, while admiring the sites my eyes could see.
I will lark at the crankiness of things and get my skin burned for moping in too much rays under the wind-blown cottage, where I will gaze the beauty while I pretend to be sleeping

Welcome 2011 :)

Yeah, at last I managed to grasp in some time to update my dusty blog.

Nevertheless, about a week ago, on 31st of December 2010 at Simsuangco Residence almost all of us excited kids? ;), gathered for a new years eve. On the day itself, I remembered last minute dress hunting (mama and papa) and last minute showering and make up.

The party was great, an eight course meal, I believe, and I especially love the dessert. Walddorf Salad, which tasted so good! Thanks to Stara J Nothing much happened that day, not so much drama whatsoever, but it was fun enjoying the games and gifts after a very tiring year for me. :)

at the moment, enough of chit chatting. Here are the not so awesome pics! :p

Unconditional Love

My mother-in-law will be celebrating her birthday tomorrow.

I can’t just let this birthday slip without doing something a little superfluous. I’ve spent hours trying to form out the best way I can show my mother in law HOW MUCH I appreciate her. Conversely, all I can come up with is this letter.

I have no scheme why it was so difficult to write this letter to her. Maybe it’s because I couldn’t find the right words? I wasn’t able to excavate the words that are big enough or good enough to describe and express what she means to me …. to us. I spent hours trying to write this letter to her and I think it still falls terribly short of my intentions. Nonetheless, here it is…

Happy birthday Mama!!!

As I stare you, I see just like my mother. I perceive an incredibly smart, funny, talented, loving, courageous, beautiful woman who is beyond dedicated to her family and most especially to Papa Bogart. You are an exceptional role model, which has made your sons' endeavor to be a better person.

Thanks for your unconditional love to my two angels (Portia and Maxie)

I don’t think I will ever be able to thank you enough for all that you do, have done, and will certainly continue to do.
