Finally, we got a response from Hello Kitty.
"HK loves Charlize"
from Sanrio Facebook
Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson).

[Final Product] Make Me Over as Rosalie Hale

On my previous last week, Make Me Over as Rosalie Hale I tried my very best to 'copy' Rosalie Hale's style.

Good thing I had a simple black dress and a gray cardigan.

So, as a promise here it is:
My first attempt to copy a movie character's style, minus the blondie hair (hehe)

Charlize Theron versus Hello Kitty

Image
What's wrong if I wear Hello Kitty shirt or accessories? Well, Charlize Theron seemed disturbed seeing women of my same age freely stuffed themselves with Hello Kitty.

as reported from US Weekly,

"I'm pretty amazed by Hello Kitty. I see so many women in their 30s walking around in Hello Kitty s--- and nobody is concerned for them," she said. "It's the one iconic teenage symbol that seems okay for women in their 30s? The world seems to not have an issue with it."


As a big fan of Hello Kitty, its unstoppable who cares!

Goodbye Snaptu!

It was reported that Snaptu (a Facebook app for feature phones) is closing down effectively on December 26.

As written on the Snaptu Blog, it said:
On Dec 26th we will be closing the Snaptu service.
We’ve put a lot of hard work and exercised great focus in order to build Snaptu. To do something really well one has to focus, and now that we’re part of Facebook we are doing just that – we are focusing on Facebook for Every Phone.

Facebook for Every Phone is still in its early stages and there’s much more to do. Our goal is to build an amazing app, one that doesn’t require a fancy phone, but will still provide millions of people around the world with great new ways to connect and interact with their friends.

We hope that you enjoyed Snaptu and we thank you again for your support.
Just last month, Snaptu also discontined support for Twitter, Crcinfo and LinkedIn

Aside from Levi's he is also the spokesperson for Coca Cola in three regions and Canon cameras in Malaysia.

Make Me Over as Rosalie Hale

Image
"Would you like to hear my story, Bella? It doesn't have a happy ending - but which of ours does? If we had happy endings, we'd all be under gravestones now."    ―Rosalie to Bella Swan
Rosalie was transformed into a vampire by Carlisle Cullen. And became an integral member of the Cullen family and fights eagerly against those who threaten them. So what is Rosalie Hale doing in my blog? Because I attended a Christmas get together wherein we have to impersonate movie characters.

I chose Rosalie because her costume is too simple. A black dress and gray cardigan. That's very basic that we can found it on our closets.

For the make up, the shades were too light and perfectly match with the outfit. Too bad that I couldn't find a replica necklace, but its okay I have to wear black nail polish (hahaha). I didn't dye my hair but I bought a washable hair color. And that was awesome.

That was my first time to attend a costume party celebration, and it was really fun seei…

Christmas Party Hangover: What to do?

Sample #3 - Taro Pudding - I didn't noticed it was pudding. I am concentrating on how Taro tasted. Somehow, I like it. I'm a big Taro fan.

Sample #4 - We were debating if this one is a lemonade or strawberry, until we found out its a…

It is a dream come true for me to meet the real-reel life husband and wife Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos at the Bloggers Conference for the movie, My Househusband: Ikaw Na which is the official entry of Octo Arts for 2011 MMFF.

Judy Ann is Mia who is married to Rod (Ryan), a family story of balancing their careers and raising their kids. As well as keeping the priorities in life and challenges to face when Rod loses his job and be the 'househusband.' Also starring in this film is Eugene Domingo (which we all know also starred in different MMFF entries), Aida (Eugene) plays Rod and Mia's neighbor and a mistress who lives next door and eventuall end up as Rod's BFF. According to Eugene, it finds very refreshing to portray such kind of role that will bring the film neither over the top nor subdued but 'just right.'
'Ibang-iba ang point of view dahil dun and since I have very few straight male friends in real life, playing Aid was refreshing and challenging,…
