#Y Gala night

So I went to the Gala night of #Y. I’ve watched the film for the second time. And I just can’t help but be proud of Elmo. I’ve been a fan of Elmo since when he officially entered showbiz, in his almost 4 years of being an artist, I’ve seen a lot of improvements from him; from his voice, his moves and his acting. I’ve seen him act on his Maynila episodes, pilyang kerubin, bantatay, his musical act called “A wazak love story”, his comedy sitcoms: Kaya ng powers and Tweets for my sweet, Tween Academy, Just One Summer, Together Forever, Villa Quintana and on his first indie film which is #Y.

He is really accelerating in his acting skills! I loved how he interpreted a teen guy who’s like confused of living in this world. He has a good life, good family, nice friends but everything seems to be worthless for him and wanted to end his life.

My fave part of the movie is his make out scene with Lia (Sophie Albert) which is mejo bitin coz he only showed more of his back (hahaha charot!)

 
Pero seriously my fave part is his 2nd phone convo with Abby (Chynna Ortaleza) when he’s going hysterical and wanting to kill himself again. Wala lang I just find his acting very real and emotional I was mejo teary eyed coz he made me feel I was in his situation through his acting though I haven’t felt that way pa naman.
 
 
I wish he’ll have more indie films..
 
 
So here’s some of the photos I took from the Gala last night:

And here’s Direk Gino!!! He’s super cute! I was in the middle of the crowd when someone touched my back and when I saw it’s him, I immediately approached him, took a pic together and congratulate him.

I’ve been wanting to watch a Cinemalaya films since last 2 years but didn’t had the chance, too bad I heard there were a lot of good films then.

Starring: Elmo Magalona as Miles, Coleen Garcia as Janna, Sophie Albert as Lia, Kit Thompson as Ping, Slater Young as Mark and Chynna Ortaleza as Abby.

CinamalayaX is from August 1-10.

Didn’t saw Lauren’s tweet bout this, that she will watch the screening at Shang. Unexpectedly, we planned to watch Puti at Shangri-La. Didn’t expect that I will see the main cast there, although I expected that they will watch it in Shang but didn’t totally expected that I will see them. Ang gulo ko no, haha! Anyway, I loved the film, it was strange at first but in the end, you will understand the story and I love how Lauren acts and how she express her emotions, great film! 😀

 

Last screening of Catnip x Lunch at Yellow Halo

Watched the last screening of Catnip with Sarah and Aly at Rob Galle. Last screening was 12nn but I came late so I missed half of the movie, ang naabutan ko lang ay yung Skype scene ni Lauren and Moe. Lauren was also late, almost 30 mins na lang yung natitirang scenes. Then after the movie we met Lauren, it was so flattering that she approached me first.. Natandaan pala nya ko, kasi she tweeted bout the last screening of Catnip then I tweeted her that I wanna watched again and asked her if she’s gonna go then she tweeted me twice saying “yes! See you tomorrow” and “Go!! Yes!!” so yeah. And the rest of the convo goes like this:
Lauren: Jacqui!!
Me: Hi lo papicture
Lo: ya sure
..
Lo: lasalle ka?
(coz of my shirt)
Me: ya pero sa dasma..
Lo: oh..
Me: may class ka after?
Lo: wala kong pasok ngayon 😀
Me: ah finals nyo? Good luck sa finals 🙂

After watching the movie we decided to try Elmo and Maxene’s co-owned resto–Yellow Halo, located at Strata 100 bldg, 22nd floor.

Just One Summer Set Visit (041212)

Went all the way from Cavite just to visit Elmo and ask for his confirmation for JulieNation’s Block Screening with Julie and Elmo which is happening NOW (August 18, at Trinoma). Yes you’ve read that right, “NOW”. Didn’t make it today at the Block Screening for some reasons 😦 But it’s ok at least I’ve made it at the Premiere Night 🙂

Are you familiar with this house? It’s where Nyel stayed the whole Summer 🙂

“blue shirts and tents”

With dear Sarah – my best fan-girling buddy ever :))

Just One Summer Premiere Night

The much awaited movie of the year!

We couldn’t make it here without the help of Ms. Pia Magalona, thanks so much to her for the tickets and for all the love and kindness she’s showing to us.

Mommy P with Elmo’s admins 🙂

I’m happy that, at last, she finally met the people behind Elmo’s fanpages and blog


Love gift for Elmo and Mommy P 🙂

She’s so pretty!! My peg/girl crush

If you guys are wondering why I don’t have a picture with Moe..sad to say I didn’t get a chance to take a pic with him. But I greeted him twice! (Actually I waved my hands on his face) I guess that’s enough! Haha

But here’s a tweet back from him.. Haaaay *kilig*
