First thing’s first: NOT WHAT I’VE EXPECTED.

=========
Storyline: 6.0
Post Production: 4.5
Script Cont: 3:0
Casting: 9.5 ( I just dont like Andi at all)
=========

I was really not expecting that the movie will be that bad that I’m not even excited to finish the movie.
Compared to Kimmydora, which is a perfect 10, Mamarazzi is an epic fail.
Sad to say, i dont think it’ll even reach half of what Kimmydora earned.

All the press and promotions for mamarazzi were just plain public relations.
The only good thing about the movie were the hot men on it.
Who wouldn’t agree?
Diether Ocampo? Aaron Villaflor? Xian Lim? Carlo Guevarra?
Gawd. It’s like watching gay porn on cinema.

The pacing of the movie is really fast. It jumps from one scene to another. Sometimes, the next scene is not even connected with the previous. And what bugs me the most is the ice-skating scene when they did a song and dance number. Akala ko nanonood ako ng pelikula na ginawa noong 90’s. Uso yun noon diba? Yung out of nowhere biglang kakanta at sasayaw yung mga tao sa paligid kasama yung bida? I just dont like it. I just dont.

There’s even a deus ex machina on the end. I just dont wanna spill the beans for those who are still planning to watch it.

My suggestion: Watch it then decide for yourself. Or better yet, DONT WATCH IT AT ALL.

OVER-ALL RATING: 4.0

XOXO.

TAGALOG NA ANG BLOG KO! =)

After one hundred years of thinking, napagdesisyunan ko na magsulat sa Filipino.

Matagal ko na din namang pinagiisipan kung dapat bang magsulat nalang talaga ako sa Tagalog para mas ma-express ko pa ang mga bagay na kailangang ma-express ng Major Major.

Salamat kay Venus Raj at sa suggestion ni 1969 Ms. Universe Gloria Diaz.

This is an intervention.

Kailangan ko daw kasing mas magsulat sa Filipino or else..

MAGIGING BEAUCONERA AKO.

ayaw ko nun.

VENUS RAJ =)

Ask me anything

THE MS UNIVERSE POST

I cant seem to move on with Miss Universe 2010.

I am satisfied with the results, Im just quite frustrated, to say the least.
Well, if you are actually watching the live show and you’re a Filipino, everytime you hear Venus Raj’s name, I know you’ll go loco.
I actually watched it with my friends (Tet, Beyonca, Miko and Miko’s Gf and Mom). Imagine how loud we can get. Hahaha
From 83 beautiful ladies, they were trimmed down to 15. And yes, Venus was one of the top though she was called last.
She was called last so imagine our faces while the first 14 were called.
Among those who were included in the Top 15 were (on the position that they were called)

Puerto Rico (who has sleepy eyes)
Mariana Vicente

Ukraine
Ann Poslavska

Mexico (super beautiful)
Jimena Navarrete

Belgium
Cilou Annys

Ireland
Rozanna Purcell

South Africa (who looks like Leighton Meester)
Nicole Flint

France (which has an ironic national costume)
Malika Menard

Australia (there’s just something wrong with how she look)
Jesinta Campbell

Jamaica (who is my bet besides Venus)
Yendi Phillipps

Russia (who is an unexpected entry)
Irina Antonenko

Albania (who has super pouty lips)
Angela Martini

Colombia (an early crowd favorite)
Natalia Navarro

Guatemala (did you see her eyebrows during the entire show?)
Jessica Scheel

Czech Republic (who has eyes to die for)
Jitka Valkova

and the last called was the Philippines (WOOOOOAAAAHHH!)
Venus Raj

After the swimsuit competition, they were trimmed down to 10 where Russia, France, Czech Republic, Belgium and early favorite, Colombia were removed.

So the Top 10 that were left (Based on their swim wear scores) were:

Jamaica (9.426)

Mexico (9.265)

Philippines (8.957)

Ireland (8.784)

Australia (8.543)

Puerto Rico (8.443)

Ukraine (8.333)

Albania (Tied with South Africa at 8.229)

South Africa (Tied with Albania at 8.229)

Guatemala (8.071)

As expected, I know that Venus will rock this part, she ranked third after Mexico and Jamaica.

When the ladies went out to show their evening gown, I know Venus will be hanging by a thread because compared to the other girl’s gowns (besides Australia’s of course), her gown is mediocre. From the big ribbon to the color that didn’t match her skin, a perfect combination for a total-outta-Ms-universe-already. But hey, she made it to top 5. In fact, she is fifth place in the evening gown (good riddance).

So the top 5 that were left (order based on their evening gown score)

Mexico (8.913)

Jamaica (8.884)

Australia (8.841)

Ukraine (8.743)

Philippines (8.714)

I think she’s not expecting to be part of the 5 so when she was called last (again), I felt her nerves. Her movements on the stage showed her nervousness. Oh well, who wouldn’t be? From 83 to 5?

Mexico and Ukraine has translators which means they have time to think about their answers while their interpreter translates. This is where the unexpected happens. When Venus was asked by Judge #2, William Baldwin the question: What was the one big mistake that you did in your life? And what did you do to make it right? She answered will full confidence: “In my 22 years of existence there is nothing major major problem I’ve done because I’m confident in myself and my family. Thank you for being here…. …Thank you , Thank you very much..”

Well that was one Big Mistake she made. Many people are quite disappointed by what happened but hey, who wouldn’t? She’s nervous and all, and besides, being on top 5 is already a big thing. I just felt that she could’ve answered the question better, but she did not. Well, she could’ve brought up her dethroning issue but she did not. Again, major frustration. But hey, this event is 11 years in the making. The last time we’re on this spot was 11 years ago when Miriam Quiambao bagged the 1st place. It’s a MAJOR achievement specially for our dethroned beauty, Venus. You just missed a chance but don’t worry, whatever people say, you’re still a Runner-up and you’re still beautiful.


XOXO,

Hi Hun,

Earlier today, I decided to have my hair colored grey. I was so excited because this is really different from my usual style. Quite deviant from normal.

So there I was, after taking a bath, went to Bench Fix at Glorietta 4. Waited for a minute or so then I was accomodated. Hair color for short hair is Php 1,400. Expensive eh? For my really short hair, I think it is. Well, I just wanna try so whatever, I still continued.

I was informed by Amy, the hairstylist that they need to bleach my hair first so that we can “ACHIEVE” (the term he used) the color we want to have. I trusted him, well, he’s the expert anyways. After experiencing the staggering 25 minutes of heat under the steamer (not to mention the bleach that burns my scalp), my hair was rinsed. To my dismay, I was informed that they still need to do another round of bleaching. In short, another round of suffering. I am already sweating like a pig during the second round. But the hell, I dont care, I want this.

After another 25 minutes, I looked like a newborn chick. With yellow hair and all that.

Well, not exactly like him, but the hair has resemblance. Hahaha

After that, they rinsed my hair again and then applied the grey solution. This time, I felt my body shaking. My scalp burned like hell. Like hell. I severed that for another 20 minutes. My mindset is that I am like one of the ANTM contestants on a make-over, but I cant take out the fact that my scalp is still BURNING SH*T.

After 2-hours-and-so-minute, here is the finished product:

(with Revo)

UPDATE: Since I feel that my hair is not colored properly, I had it fixed @ Ystilo Salon in Pasong Tamo. Deym did they rocked my do up! Salute to you Juris! You’re the best hair stylist! EVER!

I HATE THE WAYS

I hate the way you smile at me like you were always free.

I hate it when you used to tell me you are there to stay.

I hate to think of the times we’re together

Coz every memory makes me linger; makes me bitter, hurt, then it all made me suffer.

I hate to see that we’re through and I just keep on falling.

I also hate to see that you’re sad, and yet, you’re with another.

What I can do before, I tried to stay for you

But nothing worthwhile is happening so I just need to move on too.

And what you did, I tried to learn from them so I wont hurt myself for the same reasons.

But all kinds of pain, you did to me, so I don’t know if there’s more to learn.

I hate it when I think I love you,

But I think this is the perfect time to let you go.
