THG-CF-Limited-Edition-2-Di

It’s definitely a dystopian-themed week with the Divergent worldwide premiere, The Giver’s first-look trailer, and now The Hunger Games: Catching Fire DVD release. The Limited Edition 2-Disc DVD has over two hours of bonus features such as a behind-the-scenes documentary, audio commentary, and deleted scenes.

Choose your adventure: the two-disc DVD I just mentioned (P795), the Blu-Ray version (P1,395), or the two-movie set DVD (P995)—that’s The Hunger Games AND Catching Fire in one! Pre-order any version at Astroplus and Astrovision, and you’ll get extra treats from the Capitol: a bag tag plus posters of Katniss, Peeta, and Finnick. Add a hundred bucks and they’ll thrown in a shirt.

So, see you in Panem this weekend? Tip: Pick up a copy of Candy’s Catching Fire fan mag—promise it’ll help you deal with your feels after watching the movies!

That’s the dream, isn’t it? A never-ending summer of hanging out with your friends, sipping citrusy smoothies, and having all the time in the world to do nothing. Well here’s the next best thing: Closeup Forever Summer, the country’s first crowd-sourced festival. YOU chose the theme (beach party), the place (outdoors), and the music (EDM). Happening on April 5 at the Circuit Event Grounds, Closeup Forever Summer stars DJs Alesso, Helena, Deniz Koyu, Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Martin Pulgar, and Marc Naval. Bonus: attend the festival and you might just bump into these super cool people!

Sharpies from Macy’s calligraphy birthday party, kawaii toy borrowed from Sam for a shoot, H&M rings from Hong Kong, feelings hour with Jean and Pau, and the LG Pocket Photo printer to document everything. The printer is handy, easy to use, and on sale until the end of February at 1,332 pesos for six months for cardholders. Pretty sweet deal, yes?

From Hong Kong With Love

For my mom’s 50th birthday, which was coincidentally also Chinese New Year, we went on a family trip to Hong Kong. Going to HK during Chinese New Year seemed like a good idea at first, but most of the nice restaurants were closed that weekend. Thank goodness the theme parks were open so at least we still got to grant my mom’s birthday wish: to spend her 50th at Disneyland. Some highlights from our trip:

 

How cool are the Mickey windows on the train going to Disneyland?

After the spectacular fireworks that had me in tears. I can show you the world… I still get chills thinking about it.

At a Christmas party last year, I received a bunch of super cute cards from my Secret Santa. Perfect because I’d been looking for a way to spruce up my new-ish place with minimal effort. (In short: tamad. Haha!) I put them everywhere.

What do you decorate your room with? I’ve been meaning to do something with washi tape, but as I said, tamad. :P
