I Got Published on Thought Catalog!

Hi guys! Two weeks ago, I received a very pleasant e-mail from one of the Thought Catalog writers/producers named Nicole Tarkoff saying my article, which I will be posting below, is live on the site and that she enjoyed reading it. As an amateur writer myself, I’ve felt as though I was on cloud nine at that very moment because I never thought I’d reach this height ever in my life. I sobbed and jumped uncontrollably around the kitchen whilst trying to absorb the fact that it really happened. I’m so happy because guess what, I can finally cross this off my bucket list!

YEAR-END WRAP-UP: Bookshelf, Book haul, & Booksigning Events

2016 is the year I started to hoard, read, and sniff books again so before this year ends, I’m going to share with you some photos of my first bookshelf, the titles I have bought/received and read as well as the list of the book-related events I participated in within this 12-month period. I’m not going to include reviews of each book and the account of my bookish experiences because I don’t have much time and I don’t want this post to be too long. But don’t worry, those will be out soon! 🙂 Continue Reading…

My Fallen Movie Red Carpet Premiere Experience

The month of November has treated me best this year. Last November 8, 2016, I had the great good fortune to go to the red carpet premiere of the Fallen movie at SM Megamall. What made this event very special is that the author Lauren Kate and the Fallen stars, Harrison Gilbertson (Cam Briel) and Addison Timlin (Lucinda Price) were present to watch the movie with us too.

Lauren Kate in Ph

So, #LaurenKateinPH happened. On my birthday. Amazing.

I was browsing through my Twitter timeline when a friend of mine tweeted that Lauren Kate, the author of the Fallen series, will be going to the Philippines again for a book signing event. I thought it was a just a lame joke because National bookstore usually announces an event at least a month before (and they announced 2-3 days before this time) until I saw the said bookstore’s official announcement via Twitter. I knew then that I really couldn’t go because I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my family plus I didn’t have enough money and energy to use. I logged out of Twitter to distract myself but I couldn’t stop thinking about it! I decided I wouldn’t go. I would not because I could not, for some reason, and that’s final… I thought! Lol. Who was I fooling? Continue Reading…
