Jenny Han: Manila Book Signing Event

image

I got super delayed to blog this because of many suff I’ve been doing all along. But here I am still typing to let you guys know that I went Jenny Han’s book signing event!

It was my first book signing by the way. I’ve let so many chances especially when Mitch Albom went here or even the day where Veronica Rossi, Tarehe Mafi and  did a book signing last summer. Too bad, I was in Bicol at that time. *Le cries a river*

But on the brighter side, I didn’t miss to go to Jenny Han’s book signing!! So I was supposed to go with my co-fan girls at that day but they had other plans so I just went with little sister, Danize.We got at the venue around 9:30 am and the registration is at 10 am. The line was too long and we were actually hesitating whether we should go or not. But we still did. (FOR JENNY HAN)

Here’s the reasons why:

1. Because I really wanted to get some snippet of her next book called P.S. I still love you. It’s the second book of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I’ve read it recently this summer and I really love the book so much!! [SPOILER ALERT] Anyway, she told us that there’s another boy who would be going to Lara Jean’s life. Me and my sisters were actually guessed there would be another guy before Jenny Han told us that. But I’m a pure PETER KRAVINSKY fan. So if they weren’t together by the end of the story I’d probably die (just kidding I wasn’t serious). 

2. I wasn’t really a fan of Jenny Han until I’ve read To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I did read I Summer I turned Pretty and half-way of the second book of the series. But I didn’t like it much tho. It was too cliche and predictable. I honestly got bored reading it (sorry not sorry to fans of it).  But when I read To All Boys—, I could relate of every situation Lara Jean is facing such as her relationship with her family or how she keep her letters to herself. Back then, I wrote love letters to some of my crushes and failed to gave it to them so I decided to just throw it away together with my feelings. I just don’t have to confidence to tell them how I truly feel. #hugothits

And oh before I forget, she also told us that she was inspired writing the book because she do write letters to her crushes when she was little. But she never gave it to them too. She regret she didn’t bring one of it to the Philippines because she was planning to read it to us!

3. Idk………. I just really want to see her! We really didn’t regret meeting her and I think it was fun meeting her. I also realise how fluffy and cute she was! I wish I had a sister like her. 

These early bird got their advance copy of Ashes to Ashes.

Blogger’s United 7 

image

Manila’s most exciting bazaar, Blogger’s United (BU), is here again for the 7th time! And this summer, Blogger’s United is partnered with no other than Sunsilk. I’ve been attending BU for the past few years and I’d say it has becoming more bigger every time they celebrate it. BU7 is held last May 10, 2014 in Metrotent, Ortigas. I swear I never been to Metrotent so it’s my first time to go there with my co-blogger, Clarisse Provido

What’s BU? BU usually happens twice a year, one during the summer and another on December.  It’s basically a bazaar participated by of our country’s favorite bloggers. It’s where most of the bloggers sell their pre-loved items in an affordable price. I always loved to shop to BU because they also sell branded items for a very cheap price. There are activities to enjoy with so why would you miss the fun?

My BU7 experience wouldn’t complete without meeting my favorite bloggers! I’ve seen and met some of them from the previous BU events. But my undying love and support to each one of them will be the same. Till the next BU! (Hoping to meet them more)

Summertime of Our Lives

In less than two weeks, I’d be attending college and it’s sad to hear that my summer would be going to be over. But there’s still two week right? I’m going to make the most out of it.

image

Before the DiD2014, we were asked if we want to surf in Bagasbas Beach and I rejected the offer. I actually planned to do an outfit post at the beach. (Tbh, I’ve never had the courage to do photoshoots in public beaches haha).

And it went well I guess (?) Cause it turns out like I’m having fun.
