Fifty Shades of Grey is Not Porn

Before my friends and I watch the movie, we were really excited about it (just like everybody else). We didn’t know how the movie will interpret the book. Everyone is talking about it. The social media is just flooding with praises and ofcourse, bashes of the movie. It was very controversial in terms of its sexual appeal and liberated theme. The fans of the book even died (well, almost dying) to know the actors that will be given the role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, which apparently landed on Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. Everyone has their own fantasies. Some people who have read the book maybe disappointed. I was. When I finished the first book, I was like “What the hell? Is this serious? Is the book all about sex and nothing else?” I thought it was very idealistic and a fantasy. Since I was left hanging from the ending of the first book, I continued reading the second book entitled Fifty Shades Darker. I started to like it because it made sense and became more interesting. I even fell inlove with it (maybe with Christian Grey only). There is already a spice in it other than sex.

It is about how a person changes the other or how both of them change in becoming this inseparable couple.

Then, I finished the last book Fifty Shades Freed. There was more than just sex, there was romance – real feelings. The movie is indeed not bad at all!!! People somewhat overreacted on how sexual it’s gonna be. Well it is, for underaged but I don’t see it that way. There are some scenes maybe a bit sexually brutal. Well, in the first part of the movie me and my friends were laughing at Ana Steele (in a good way) because of her being so naive and funny. And I think every girl would dream for a Christian Grey in their lives – rich, handsome, and maybe they would also consider a control freak. Some maybe disappointed upon watching the movie. They just don’t get it. Most people see it as trash just like some say about book. I can’t imagine how a person like E.L. James has a huge imagination and wide vocabulary to write the Fifty Shades trilogy. As a fan, the movie didn’t disappoint me at all. I was happily satisfied. Jamie and Dakota gave justice in portraying the characters, and I salute them for being so bold (brave not nude, or maybe both) about it. The essence of the book is evident. I can’t wait for the sequel! πŸ™‚

My Date on Valentine’s Day

You don’t need a love letter, flowers or a chocolate
Nor a boyfriend or girlfriend to be your valentine’s date
All you need is someone special like family or a close friend
Or maybe just stay at home and do what you usually do on a weekend
It’s okay if you have never been in love
Because Someone is already madly in love with you in the heavens above…
(Spontaneous Poem)

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

The Vamps Live in Manila (Our Awesome Experience)

Last February 2, 2015, the indie band called ‘The Vamps’ had their concert here in Manila, Philippines. It was held at MOA (Mall of Asia) Arena.

My sister and I attended the concert and it was so much FUN πŸ™‚ She has been the best concert buddy – ofcourse, because we are sister and she is the only person that I’ve ever been with to concerts (Justin Bieber & American Idol Season 11). Oh and my Dad, too when we attended AI concert.

The Vamps are just new comers in the music industry, and not to mention, British cuties πŸ™‚ The first song I have ever heard of them was Somebody to you ft. Demi Lovato. I just thought their music was cute. I didn’t think I would fall inlove with them because I was liking 5 Seconds of Summer that time. Well, their different from 5SOS. They play Indie songs while 5SOS plays pop/rock songs. That’s why I love them both.

I believe that this was the band’s first concert tour. They are just beginners but I admire them so much for the kind of music they make. The boys are just so cute. They are all perfect for the whole thing. Before, the concert date, I watched videos of them about themselves and the band. I discovered that the band was not something like they had ever since High School or something. They really intended to make this band – to create one. James McVey and Bradley Simpson teamed up to start one, but they are really not friends. They got Tristan Evans on the drums. Then, saw Connor Ball on YouTube doing song covers. So, that’s how they started. The name ‘The Vamps’ is not meaningful as I though it was (because they are all white that they think they look like vampires, I guessed). They said they named it that because James was a big fan of the Twilight movies and the series The Vampire Diaries. But still cute though πŸ™‚

I love all of the members of the band. But who me and my sister really love is Connor Ball ❀ πŸ™‚ I thought he is the mysterious type, kind of a bad boy look but you know chilling type. And he also has these light blue eyes. Then, we found out that he is the sweetest of all. He’s kind and he always smiles πŸ˜€ than the others do.

Because we loved the experience, I kind of tried to made a video blog out of it. Check it out!

A Story of Three Friends

Me and my two other best buds namely Ben & Kevin were on a road trip and then we got bored so we decided to write a short story on my notepad…

May tatlong magkakaibigan, dalawang babae at isang lalaki.
Nakasakay sila sa isang jeep, naglalakbay sa kawalan – gawain ng mga taong walang magawa.
Biglang may lumabas na tao sa inodorong puno ng dumi.
Ganda’y di inakala na ako’y nabigla at muling naniwala sa pag-ibig.
Ako’y lumapit at tinanong ang kanyang pangalan.
Yun pala ubod ng baho ang hininga kaya’t sinampal ko at tinadyakan ko siya.
Ayon, bungal!
Biglang napulot ang natanggal na ngipin,
Nilunok at sumigaw ng “Darna!”
Ayun patay!
Patay ‘di ngipin nalunok, bubog pala.

– Acenas, Galvez & Manlangit (2015)
