And the Award Goes To...

As a closing event to my last college semester, we recently held an Awards Night last 19th of March, 2016 at the Manila Hotel. But since my blog is following a schedule, I opted to release this post today instead.

It has been at least 2 years since I last attended any of these formal gatherings, so forgive me if I've gone a little rusty when it comes to posting in the "Fashion Statements" section. Moving on, here is the gown I wore:

... and Back

 And I think this would seem familiar to my past readers, but I decided to again use my silver accessories:

They seem to be more comfortable this time around...

Gotta love those earrings...

Forgive my feet...

Look at my hands instead...

Also, due to lack of time, I had my hair and makeup done at Petra & Pepita (Encarnacion Group of Salon) located at G/F Regina Garden II Building, Reina Regente Street, City of Manila, Metro Manila.

I do love the makeup used for my eyes! It wasn't irritating!

Love the curls...

Now with that said:


What do you think?

I'd also like to thank Sir Ben Verdeblanco for my beautiful gown, his store is located at Stall 2J-3 11/88 Shopping Mall 2nd Floor, Reina Regente St., Binondo Manila. Also my purse and dangling earrings are from SM Carriedo, a.k.a SM Quiapo. My shoes, from Isetann Carriedo. With my toes & nails being done at "Perfectly Polished", which is located at the 5/F of SM Manila.

Taking Gaming To Another Experience

With the recent conclusion of a trilogy in my "Game Reviews" section, I decided to take it up a notch with a whole new blog experience! In my immersion, I'm here to introduce Roc On Sky's 9D VR Experience!

New Exhibit!

It's now open here at the 3rd Floor of Lucky Chinatown Mall, and take note, they have an ongoing promo! I don't know till when they'll be here, so you gotta check it out as soon as you can!

If the price is right...

As for me, I've already tried 8 of the 9D experience so far, and they range from 2-10 minutes depending on the specific "game" you choose. Some were downright boring, others cool, and only a couple were really awesome.

Personally reviewing my 8 VR experiences, I'd say the Eagle Simulation was the best! It made you really feel like you were flying around this snowy landscape! I think I got it on video here alongside the Dark Roller Coaster one which comes second best.

It wasn't really that "dark" though...

The third best would be Evil Abyss a.k.a. The House from Hell, though I don't think it was really all that scary but kudos to the storyline.

Not much "jumpscares" here...

Fourth would be the Racing game since I've got a soft spot for those kinds of genres, plus it was futuristic and really immersive! 

Got a lot to choose from!

With that said, I guess the Pyramid of the Abyss comes fifth since it was close to that kind of type too.

Mind the spikes!

The sixth one would be this Vampire game which would have had potential had it been in 1st person, but it ended up like some kind of short animation.

The last two was like your ordinary amusement park ride with the Dinosaur Roller Coaster being a disappointment for me, since I personally think the Universal Studios' Jurassic Rapids provided more entertainment than this. And don't get me started on the 360 Ride! It just gave me a headache!

No words can express...

But in the end, let's face it, the whole experience was new and fun for me so I guess the day wasn't all gloom and doom. Maybe you should give the 9D VR Experience a try too!

The "Dark" Games Continues...

With all that's been happening in my life recently, I can't help but look for distractions in my life, just to escape reality or better to prevent insanity.

Aside from books, I've recently discovered games. And these aren't the free trial versions anymore too, because I have serendipitously discovered the world of torrent downloads. Whoo!

By continuing the Game Reviews part of my blog, I'll therefore be concluding a game series that I've initially started on in the past years. If you've been following my past blogs then you have probably heard of "Twisted Lands". Now we're in the 3rd part of the game titled, "Twisted Lands: Origin".

Don't mind the ghost...

Compared to the first two games that were released in this series, this had more of a backgrounder on how "Twisted Lands" became what it is.

Basically, the timeline takes place before the events of the first two games. So if you've tried to play them, you'll see some familiar hidden object scenes that have more of a "new" feel to it since it does take place years before the first game.

To wrap this post up, "Twisted Lands: Origin" does end up tying all the loose ends and unanswered questions from the start of the game series. By playing this conclusion, you'll get to find out how the "epidemic" in the island did take place.

All in all, it was one hell of a series! Maybe in the future I'll get to blog another adventure-filled hidden object game series, but for now I'm wishing for more time from reality to be able to feed this gaming addiction!

Life As We (Don't) Know It...

It has been at least 6 months since my last blog post and life is as constant as change. I'll be graduating in at least a month's time and I'm still at a crossroads on what to do with my life. 

It's a big world out there... O.O

I'm actually just posting this blog in a daze; for lack of a proper output of my scattered thoughts... 

On a recent note, I'm typing this post a few days in advance and hopefully I've made it home safely from my school's International Tour to Singapore! 

Though we were originally planning on an earlier, due to tardiness and maybe lack of proper time management, it all seemed crammed into whatever schedule they could fit us in. 

In the end, you can't stop change. It's the only thing that's constant in life. Though someone should have warned me about how erratic that change can be.

P.S. It's as erratic as it comes.

Now that I'm feeling philosophical, maybe I should try posting more blogs in advance? Or maybe once I get my head out of the clouds, I'll be able to post more "tangible" blogs? One can only ponder, while my mind is still fleeting from whatever thoughts I've been dwelling on. 

For now, addio ai miei lettori...
