  (Previously on The Fangurl Diaries: Invites to the Ian Somerhalder Press Con were available as soon as 3 top Penshoppe branches opened on May 19, 10 am. They were out before 11 am.  I practically lost my chance to see Damon in the flesh.)But as I have said, I was not raised to give […]

  So far there have been 3 juicy diaries left on this couch for the past 4 years: there’s The Nanny Diaries, The Bolinao Diaries and The Mothersmother Diaries – not to mention loads of other confessions that will practically get a lot of space should I later on – in my twilight years – […]

love flicks

Hey, it’s February again. I know, I know… all these Valentine’s day stuff have become really overrated, becoming more like another ploy of retail giants and even relatively smaller commercial establishments to entice (still) hopeless romantics out there to celebrate v-day.

the boy who lived

The last Harry Potter movie I watched on the big screen was the third instalment, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It was quite dark for my taste. I was only able to watch subsequent HP films on DVD, including my favorite one (even on print), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Now […]

thirst

I can no longer recall when my fascination with these bloodsucking creatures began. It was not exactly just Twilight, although frankly that heightened most (young) people’s interest in them. I have a vague recollection of going to the movies and watching Bram Stoker’s Dracula starring Keanu Reeves back in college, with the dazzling Gary Oldman […]
