Mulat "Awaken" Film Review

| 29 October 2016
We love to read reviews on indie films nowadays. It's a refreshing way to appreciate creativity in the film industry. For all of you, I would like to share a short review of the film, Mulat "Awaken" which is top-billed by Jake Cuenca, Loren Burgos and Ryan Eigenmann. Obviously, it attracted many viewers during the gala premiere of the movie.

Mulat "Awaken" is a perfect example of a remarkable movie that will entertain you from the initial scenes up to the ending. Every detail is essential to understand the narrative and answer questions about life itself. Thankfully, each scene is amazing that it's not boring to follow the story until the most-awaited part of realization is visible. The character of Sam, played by Loren Burgos, made me realize that there are things in life that I need to re-consider such as marriage and family relationships.

Everyone who watched the film loved it and I'm really grateful that I took the opportunity to attend the gala night. So I'll invite you to watch the Mulat "Awaken" film on November 2, 2016. Now, I'll end this short film review with a question: How much choice do we have in shaping our destinies?

My Seafood Island Dining Experience at Market! Market!

| 16 October 2016
The way I see it, freshly-cooked seafood is still my number one favorite dish nowadays. I may have professed my love for grilled pork and chicken lately, but I still stayed true to seafood dishes. No wonder I chose Seafood Island to celebrate my seven years of blogging. I know it's been a long and I haven't plunge to the mainstream yet, but I'm getting there. I promise.

Seafood Island has a branch at Market! Market! and it's my favorite place when I wanted to eat boodle style. It's more of a relaxed way to enjoy food and eat as much as I can finish this time. I know I'm a slow diner because I chew my food carefully, but this time, I really made it clear to be the winner. I finished almost three-fourth of our order, which is very affordable. For less than Php700.00, we had assorted seafood and the mix was cooked a very delicious way.

The rice platter topped with seafood mix made me think of the days when we visit the beach to enjoy swimming. Our packed lunch is just the same - delectable, fresh and easy-to-prepare. This seafood mix is something really yummy since the taste is just perfect for a seafood lover like me.

Attainable High Street Lifestyle

| 10 October 2016
I know that I haven't written for a long time here. I was busy preparing for my book to be launched next year. Since I transferred here at Taguig, I'm really busy with meaningful tasks that will also inspire you.

My lifestyle has changed since I live near Bonifacio Global City. I'm exposed to more shopping havens than before. SM Aura is just arms away from our place. With Market! Market!'s close proximity at home, I'm really inspired to spend more time with learning to unleash my creativity by visiting these places.

My husband suggested I transferred here since it's near the office. It would be easy for me to attend events, too. My photos are usually taken at BGC, High Street. I love visiting Fullybooked, especially when I want to read self-help books.

Anyway, thanks for dropping by. I'm still going to write interesting articles here. Have a great time!

We know the vintage pieces are hard to find nowadays. If you have no time to visit museums and vintage stores, you'll never see your favorite retro pieces.

As for me, I don't have the luxury of time to visit places that display vintage items. Luckily, I was able to attend the mini blogger conference for Let Gravity at Limbaga 77 Restaurant Cafe in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. The casual dining place has a display of fabulous vintage items for its guests.

During the time I had an afternoon stroll at BGC High Street, I saw a lot of old typewriters displayed in one of the stores there. At that time, I was thinking of finding a vintage television set. I was fortunate to see one at Limbaga 77 Restaurant Cafe.

Every person who loves vintage pieces wants to look for inspiring items everywhere. There's no time to waste here, knowing that vintage items are rarely seen in our favorite stores. For now, let me share with you some ideas to fill your living rooms with the right vintage pieces.

1. Choose simple pieces to harmonize a vibrant place.

It's really inspiring to decorate a room that's full of vibrancy since the colors are awesome. All you have to do is create a subtle balance. For example, you can choose a part of your living room where you put a darker color such as fuchsia pink, dark blue and blazing red. Then, choose vintage pieces to break the monotony. For a simple look, a small center table is a good choice. Obviously, this design is perfect for wooden floor design.

The Beauty of Wearing Houndstooth Clothing Pieces

We know that style stays forever. That sounds true to all fashion lovers who wear houndstooth clothing pieces. Even if the trend was very popular last year, many stylish ladies still wear houndstooth pieces nowadays.

The beauty of wearing houndstooth clothing items is simple: texture and style combined provides semi-edgy style that doesn't just fade through the years. All you have to do is experiment and pair it with different pieces to maximize the look.

Image: Demi Lovato 

Personally, I prefer wearing houndstooth skirts and jackets to add texture to a delicate top or blouse. Earlier this month, I had picture-taking at SM Aura grounds since I was wearing a pink houndstooth A-line skirt, white long-sleeve blouse and Forever 21 strappy sandals. I really like the color combination of the attire and here, I've posted my favorite photo from the said activity.

Image: Fashion Complete

My inspiration for the photo shoot was Demi Lovato since she wore a houndstooth mini skirt last year at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Choice Awards. She finished off the look with a pair of heeled shoes and a white long-sleeve top. I'm also inspired with a post by Complete Fashion about the trend.

Are you a fan of this trend? Let's talk about it in the comments below. Cheers!

Descendants of the Sun

Two months ago, I heard about a very popular Korean television series entitled, Descendants of the Sun. At that time, I just finished watching Someone Like You on YouTube. When I watched the first few episodes of the series, I started to follow its story. The television project was remarkable.

Currently, Descendants of the Sun continue to shine across the globe. Many leading television networks from around the world bought rights to air the show in their respective countries. Obviously, fans of the famed Korean drama continue to support it, even up to now.

Many bloggers posted their own review of the show. I really liked the post of Rolala about this on her blog. I also found an amazing feature at Yes Style for your reference. My own review was posted on my official blog, Karence Lopez.

Personally, I have a lot of favorite scenes of the show. My favorite was the time when Captain Yoo helped Doctor Kang Mo-Yeon to tie her shoelaces. It was an emotional and romantic scene that depicts the amazing bond of the two leading characters. If we think about it in a deeper way, it's like telling us that love exist even in the most depressing circumstances. No one shouldn't give up on true love. I think a lot of people like the television series a lot because Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo was able to portray their characters in a natural way. The chemistry between the two lead stars were obvious even at the start of the story.

Recently, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo won the Most Popular Male and Female in TV Awards at 52nd Baeksang Art Awards and Descendants of the Sun got Grand Prize in TV Award.

If you're a fan of Descendants of the Sun and you want to share your thoughts about the show, let's talk about in the comments below. Cheers!
