Bring it on!

So I thought of something hip-hop to post today! Well, "Step Up" crossed my mind that's why. First of all, I love to dance. Humbly speaking, dancing is one of the many talents that I have. I guess I am born artist! So blessed to be talented that is--thanks to my parents' genes. Let's talk about dancing anyway, aside from photography which I am so into, this too is an art that I love doing. An expression of sort wherein feelings or emotions or thoughts maybe are channeled and seen through body movements. With it, ones' culture and tradition is also being pictured out. It can be of beneficial to ones health as well for dancing is an exercise apparently. Well, those are the things I can say 'bout it. I'm a nurse in profession but as a dancer since my feet aren't both left, I fell in love when the said movie was shown in the screen. Yes, I fell in love with the movie! And it made me want to jump-off to where I'm sitting and dance. I mean, the cast are good with what they do especially in dancing. And most of all the love story is very nice that it can amend a broken-heart. I just love the pairing....

As you have notice, I always include my blogs for my looks in lookbook and talks about movies here most of the time. Well, I just want to have one blogspot for my stuff that's why and I love movies.... And if you were a keen observer, I write whatever it is that comes to my mind. And that's what I like for in here I can speak my mind....I just go blah blah blah but still has sense....But I should say that whatever it is that I'm going to write I am making it sure that it has something to do with my post. LOL just being defensive guys!  

Back to our topic, have you seen the movie "Bring it on"? It's about cheer dance, teamwork obviously, love and friendship. I entitled today's post as such because it's kindda "In" when it comes to things that has something to do with dancing or hip-hop....And talking about hip-hop, my latest look by the way says about that. But it's kindda athletic one too because I'm wearing a jogging pants and a sweat shirt. Yet, the pants too baggy that it falls under the category....anyways, as you can see at the left is my look so you could agree with me here.

Oh, I just love my baseball cap! Both the baggy trousers and the sneakers are converse brands by the way. And the athletic apparel sweater is Bossini....

Hope you like it guys. Ciao!

The Vampire Rock star Lestat rocks!

As others impersonated superheroes or the like, and I mean created by human minds or exist/existed in real life, I am so fascinated by vampires. Yes, the blood-sucking creature believed to be feared by the people if it did really exist…. Well, it did in movies and stories. Even though my fascination is kind of not same as others and that maybe one will think that of all things I can fancy of…”vampires? Are you serious?” That’s the reaction that’s apt to be expected from people who have heard ‘bout this. Seriously, if they do exist I want to be like this creature. It’s not madness. I’m not out of my mind either. I am hundred percent sane, please. There’s nothing wrong with it if I’m to be asked. I’m saying that not because I’m into it or what. Nor trying to defend myself whatever…. Really, it’s just like believing on a wishing star and wishes something as it passes by the glittering dark sky of the night. And hoping and keeping the faith that the wish will one day come true. I am so allured by the idea of living young forever. Yes! Immortality is already in the package I may say. Moreover, they live a classy and luxurious life even though they live in shadows. But they still are seen if they wanted to. And they do have a choice. So, if I am one I choose to drink animal’s blood or criminals maybe that have no love for humanity and respect for life? Well, if that would be of help….Not, I opt not to. I rather have a sip from a deer’s neck. Now, I sound like the CullensYou know, the movie Twilight, get it? 

But I wanting to be such did not start when Kristen Stewart  (as Bella Swan) and Robert Pattinson (as Edward Cullen)  popularized the said movie. It all began when I saw the star-studded 1994 movie "Interview with the vampire" . After watching it, I had the thought of how cool it is to be a vampire. You now, you will be young and beautiful for the rest of your life. Or live forever savouring the life of a wealthy man. How wonderful life would be if I will be like that. Again, I prefer to drink the life of the animals. Stop the thought of the usual thing. I’m different? LOL….It’s like this, if there are omnivores there are also herbivores….I’m like a vegetarian in a supernatural way. LOL…. Then, here came the movie “Queen of the Damn”. If Lestat (the vampire) was not that nice in the 2nd movie mentioned, here he rocks! He’s the good guy. He is very cool and was the coolest rock star created in movies. Forget count Dracula! He’s evil. I am a good guy. I am with the light? LOL was just writing and fooling around guys.  Anyway, what I’m trying to point here is if I would have fangs, I am the coolest and good blood-sucking creature there is. Since that will only happen in dreams or in my imagination then I can be one with cosplay. I know Halloween is too far but animes costume play is being done whenever people feel doing it. Anime convention is done once or twice a year maybe. I mean, what is the difference…. Hence, in my latest look in lookbook I thought of playing the character Lestat. Yes, I am him. The costume was a bit of a challenge though for I’m not in Egypt where accessories of the imagined look are apt to be found. So I looked at whatever is available in the market, combined them, and being creative using my imagination of course to create something Egyptian and ancient….Apparently, I was able to make it. And it turned out stylish, classy, and fantastic.
Lestat inspired look

That's my latest look in lookbook guys. If I were a rock star I would probably wear the Lestat look on stage. It's cool to look at and the more if one will wear it--the look. Yeah, "Lestat" look rocks!!! To the people who still don't have the idea of what or who I am talking about...below is a photo of the vampire rock star Lestat in the third mentioned movie.
Lestat and Akasha
The Accessories completes it all....

I just combined them all to make something ancient and same as that of the Egyptian pharaoh. Just used my imagination and creativity....

I just love the pharoah's necklace (as what I want to call it) around my neck. The gold bracelet is just great for the look. And the ring with black stone is just perfect!

The arm bracelet is a compulsory accessory for Egyptian pharaoh wore them in ancient times. As you can see the necklace give beauty to both the front and back as well....The tattoo is somehow cool for this look--preferably something Egyptian. Mine is a Pharaoh with a dog's head. 

The black silk cloth was also used to have the desired look. And what's cool is that it has a dragon print in it that when worn gives the back view an outstanding look....
I just wore my Lee jeans and my W.Brown leather shoes to get a grip with the modern times. One can also wear a black leather trousers and boots for this look.

So that's it guys, my Lestat inspired look. Hope you like it! Have a nice day and keep rockin' guys. Ciao! :)

The Holidays

I never thought our family would end up like this but what can I say the unexpected things came to happen. T’was a mess apparently but things are okay now compared to those days when it all started…. Same as the others whose fate ended up broken yet ended up fine ironically speaking, we have peace and respect for one another and that’s what matters. Well, here we are now…my mom, my sis and me--only the 3 of us spending the holidays together. My father is with his 2nd family and the rest are having their individual lives. But the thought of having an extended family did not ruined or stop us from having a joyful meaningful holiday season. Since there are only the three of us celebrating, we decided to cook enough delicacies that our stomach can handle. Well, we estimated it as well for we also anticipated visitors to come. It was just enough but we had the great times together same as before. From the preparation to the eating session…we had a blast!

Last December 25, Christmas Eve, we had home-cooked spaghetti and fried chicken cooked by a wonderful chef and that’s me. No kidding, I know how to cook too. My mom trained me-- sort of-- every time there’s a special occasion. And I was an avid fan of my mom when it comes to kitchen stuff so I observed and watched her every time she cooks. So much for history, let’s get back to what this is all about.  My sibling on the other hand, prepared her delicacy the refrigerator cake. It’s a dessert were the layers are divided by graham biscuits and for every layers fruit cocktails were stuffed in it. Not only we had that, we also had  "suman" (local term for rice cake) thanks to my mother’s lady friend. Paella, a Spanish recipe (a recipe composed of rice, meat and other ingredients you can think of to make it pallatable), which at first was claimed by my sister as chowpan (a Chinese recipe) but I told her that what she did was not what she believed it was for she already put boiled eggs on it. Turned out that I’m right and I’m a cook wiz? Haha! Now I’m kidding! We also decided to have ice cream on the table just in case we craved for it. We just love ice cream….
We also had fruits displayed on the table and if you feel like eating you just grab one and have one. We have Coca-Cola for our beverage and red wines--Carlo Rossi and Fortunella. What can I say the celebration isn’t complete without red wine. Cheers guys! 

The celebration continued..... 

New Years Eve came! 2013, the year of the water snake. As usual, we only cooked that is enough for 3 people and for some expected visitors to come....Still, fried chicken, spaghetti, and refrigerator cake was in the table--and the rice cake too. Aside from that, we had pork adobo (cooked by my mom), fruit salad, and pudding too. We had fruits and candies displayed on the table preferably circle in shape fruits for it is believed that anything circle-- same notion is applied to wearing polka-dots clothing and putting coins in your pocket-- will bring money and fortune this new year. It is also believed that negative forces/energy will be driven off when you make loud noises a you welcome the year. That's why we had this fireworks and other noise-creating stuff "blast" our ear drums out as part of the celebration....Some jump high hoping that there will be an increase in height. Crazy belief right? But we do had faith on these things and hope that what we wish for will be acquired this year. 

What can I say, a celebration is not complete without wines. Red wine....anyone? Cheers y'all! We had coca-cola also if you like....

from my family to yours....HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!

xoxo to all my friends and family! :)
