<3 The 74TH Annual Hunger Games! :) <3



Yeah right! It’s already the 74th year of the annual Hunger Games held in the country of Panem.

Were each and every year they need to pick 2 representatives between the ages of 12-18 in every districts of Panem, this process of picking 2 tributes in every district is called “THE REAPING”.

There are 13 districts but, district 13 had already vanished during the Dark Days of Panem, that’s why it is now turned into 12 districts, which means there are 24 tributes to compete for the Hunger Games inside an arena for 2 weeks fighting for their lives to live, to have something to eat and drink and shelter them during those cold nights in the arena, and most especially to kill one another until one will stand still and remain and be crown as the Victor of the annual Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games is a trilogy novel which was written by Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games trilogy includes the book:

  •       Hunger Games
  •       Catching Fire
  •       Mocking Jay


And this year, 2012, marks the year were the 1st installment of the trilogy will be shown in motion picture produced by Lions Gate, a production and motion picture company in the United States.

After the auditions for the cast who will portray for each role in the said novel the casting has finally done.

In the 1st book the significant characters are:

  •       Katniss Everdeen
  •       Peeta Mellark
  •       Gale Hawthorne
  •       Primrose Everdeen
  •       Effie Trinket
  •       Haymitch Habernathy
  •       Cinna
  •       Rue
  •       Cato


The role of the major characters was auditioned and get by the young and admirable actors of their generation.

  •       Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen – A 16 year-old young lady who volunteered herself at The Reaping of the 74th Hunger Games, for her younger  sister, Primrose Everdeen, played by Willow Shields.
  •       Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark – the boy tribute who’s been picked by Effie Trinket during The Reaping of the 74th Hunger Games, also called as the “Boy with the Bread” by Katniss Everdeen.
  •       Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne – A 18 year-old boy, who’s fallen in love with her hunting partner and best friend Katniss Everdeen.
  •       Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Habernathy – the mentor of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark in the 74th Hunger Games. He is also the 1st Victor from district 12.
  •       Alexander Ludwig as Cato – the career-tribute from district 2. And the last tribute that had a battle for survival with Katniss EVerdeen and Peeta Mellark at the 74th Hunger Games.
  •        Willow Shields as Primrose Everdeen – A 12 year-old girl, and the sister of Katniss Everdeen and the name that Effie Trinket picked during The Reaping of the 74th Hunger Games.
  •        Amandla Stenberg as Rue – the girl tribute from district 11 who became ally with Katniss Everdeen during the 74th Hunger Games and was speared in her stomach that causes her death during the game.

When I’ve watched the movie it was really great! Especially the part where the 24 tributes had their parade in their chariots in the circle of the Capitol in Panem. It was really grandioso and also every tributes costume is all grandioso, avant-garde, and beautiful which has the details of the district they representing of. But of course the part that I love is the entrance of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark of district 12 were they wear an all tight black suit and a fire on their back while holding each other’s hands, Designed by the assigned designer for district 12 and also a new designer in the Hunger Games, Cinna, whom also became a close friend and a confidant for Katniss Everdeen during her preparation, training, and interview for the upcoming Hunger Games. And of course! I love the part when they are all in the arena making their way to fight for their lives, to fight and kill each other. But the twist and highlight of the story is during the night of the interview before the exact Hunger Games begin, Peeta Mellark admits and confessed his love for Katniss Everdeen, that’s the reason why they’re being called as the “STAR-CROSSED LOVERS” from district 12.( And of course! I also love that part!) But the biggest twist of the movie is when Claudius Templesmith announced that there can be 2 victors, but they need to come from one district, Katniss Everdeen start finding Peeta Mellark for them to become allies during the Hunger Games, so that they can win and both of them will be victors and go to their home in district 12 alive. And the most heart-breaking part of the story is when Rue the 12 year-old girl from district 11 who became ally with Katniss Everdeen dies. And it also even made me cry.

I really love this movie! And it’s a highly recommended movie to watch! For those who haven’t watch and seen it yet. It’s a must see movie!And even I read in a news paper article that it is THE MOST ANTICIPATED MOVIE OF THE YEAR! And it really has been proved! That even the Harry Potter series and Twilighters or The Twilight Saga fans had been watched the movie! And in an internet article I’ve read that The Hunger Games even surpass the combined powers and income of the 4 Twilight Saga movies, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 and part 2! And it’s the first and only Lions Gate’s movie that got the highest grosser film in all time in the history! That was such a really, really, very, very, big, big hit! For this movie! That’s why after the filming has been finished, the author of the novel Suzanne Collins watch it, she even cried a lot, tears rushes down her cheeks, because of the happiness and satisfaction that she doesn’t ever imagine that the novel that she made was really a very, very, big, big hit! and can be filmed and turned into a beautiful, wonderful, incredible, and grandioso motion picture!

<3 Mikee’s Debut! :) ^_^ <3

September 16, 2011,

according to my diary,

eto yung time na umattend ako ng debut.. at nag sleep over o overnight sa bahay ng classmate ko ng 1st year college..

sobrang saya pala umattend ng debut at mag overnight sa ibang bahay.. lalo na ang sarap din ng mga handa at kahit hindi ako masyadong kumaen nung gabi ng debut.. nabawi ko naman yun pag gising kinaumagahan.. dahil nga sa dun na kami nag overnight ay dun na din kami nag almusal at masasabi ko talaga na solve na solve at sulit na sulit ang pag sstay at pag tulog namen dun..

nakasama ko sa pag oovernight kina mikee ang mga kaibigan at classmate ko nung 2nd year college ako..

sina Alyana Navin “ANDA” Arriola, Nicole Ann Bustamante, Deanne Lindsey Ledonio at Danica Luminta..

at pagkatapos namen pumunta at kumaen ng almusal kina mikee.. ay dumiretso naman kami upang puntahan ang bahay ng aking bestfriend na si John Mark Silvestre sa Maysan, Valenzuela.. (pero hindi pa talaga kami ganun ka close at mag bestfriend nun haha! sadyang charotera at chosera lang ako ng mga panahon na yun.. haha!) at dun naman kami nakigulo at nakikain ng tanghalian..

masasabi ko lang nung araw na yun ay sulit na sulit.. kahit na napamahal man kami sa pamasahe.. ay sulit na sulit at tiba-tiba naman kami sa pagkain at busog na busog kami..


JULY 9, 2011!

according to my diary..,

itong araw na to ginawa ang first ever CCMIT ACQUAINTANCE PARTY! Grabeh! super saya ng gabi na to! ang saya-saya talaga! dahil nag kakita-kita at nag kasama-sama ulit kami ng mga former 1st year college classmaes ko na BSIT 1-3! parang nag karoon na din tuloy kami ng isang MINI REUNION NG 1-3! at lalong-lalo na ang FRIENDSHIPZ (JAM.SAN.NIE!) kaya lang malungkot pa din.. dahil hindi na kumpleto ang friendships dahil wala ang ONE AND ONLY GUY samen! na si mhel! pero at least nag kakita-kita at nag kasama-sama ulit kami! kahit sa loob lamang ng 3hours ay okay na din yun! dahil sa 3hours na yun parang na kumpleto na din ang araw ko! 🙂 ^_^

FRIDAY THE 13TH?! :/ :\

JULY 8, 2011!

according to my diary,

Grabeh talaga tong araw ng JULY 8, 2011 na to! FRIDAY! pero di naman FRIDAY THE 13th! super minalas talaga ako! o dahil na din sa what we so called na “KARMA?!” Ang super bad ko kasi that day. dahil sa ako ang kauna-unahang dumating sa room namen sa 6th floor! Grabeh! 6th floor pa talaga! ang taas no?!, dahil may klase kami every friday ng 7:30-10:30 sa 6th floor.

Inaabangan ko yung mga friends ko (anda, nicole, sey, at jm) na dumating sa room. dahil sa wala pa nga akong kasama at makausap. kaya iniintay ko sila sa may corridor. dahil nga nasa 6th floor kami.. ang advantage ko nun ay makikita mo lahat ng mga naglalakad sa baba. as in! kita talaga! lahat talaga! kaya nung nakita ko ng dumating si anda nun, ay tinawanan ko talaga siya ng sobra-sobra dahil sa siya ay tumatakbo! at talagang todo-todo na sa pagmamadali! dahil ang akala niya ay late na siya! ayun! kaya sa kakatawa ko the whole morning..

Pagdating ng hapon..

2:30 ay may klase na ulit kami at yun ang PROGRAMMING III (COBOL PROGRAMMING) pinapasa ni maam fabregas ang assignment namen sa prog at nag pa seatwork siya about dun sa recent topic namen sa prog na “STRUCTURED FLOWCHART” at pagkatapos nun ay sinagutan na namen yung seatwork na yun.

At unexpectedly! as what they usually says, “EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!” nag simula ng mag tawag si maam ng mag rerecite para sagutan yung problem flowchart.

At di ko alam kung ano ba dapat na term ang gagamitin ko. kung “LUCKILY” o “BADLY” ba? dahil unang sabak ng tawag ni maam ay AKO! OO! AKO! AKO NGA! kaagad ang natawag ni maam! kaya nagulat at nagulantang talaga ako! dahil yung part na pinapasagutan niya saken ay di ko pa talaga na sasagutan! kaya yung mga time na yun di ko talaga alam ang gagawin ko! kaya para talaga akong ewan na napatunganga at natulala na lang!

Siguro yan na ang karama saken during that day! dahil sa dami-dami ng mga kasamaan na pinag gagawa ko nun eh! karma ko na talaga yun! kahit na hindi talaga siya FRIDAY THE 13th! pero parang FRIDAY THE 13th pa din ang FRIDAY na yun para saken! dahil nga sa nangyari na yun!

And, that the reason why I called this post as “FRIDAY THE 13th?!”

First Day of School! (Sophomore Year) : ^_^

JUNE 14, 2011!

This was my first day of school in my 2nd year (sophomore year) in College of Computer Management in Information Technology (CCMIT) at Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) and my 1st year being a night shift student! because in our college we have the policy so called “RE-SHUFFLE DAW EH!” that’s why my section changed! from being BSIT 1-3 now changed to BSIT 2-2N! see! “2-2N!” meaning NIGHT SHIFT! section 2 NIGHT!

I was too early to arrived at the school, because i was too nervous! again?! and at the same time so excited to meet, greet, hugged, chat and talk with my former classmates, the same feeling that i felt during my 1st year (freshman year) in college.. It was too nerve cracking! that i really don’t know what to do 1st! but luckily, I immediately saw my former classmates and have a chat with them. I hugged them very tightly! because I missed them so much! because for me 2 months is too long for us without seeing, chatting, and talking with one another.

And then it’s already time for us to say goodbye after a short talk and chat with them because we are going to have our first class PROGRAMMING III (COBOL PROGRAMMING!) and as before, I was too nervous again! It was really nerve cracking,! and my hands are already shaking! because programming is our first subject! and for me, during our 1st year (freshman year) PROGRAMMING IS THE MOST DIFFICULT OR THE HARDEST SUBJECT FOR ME! that’s why I’m really too nervous.

I DIDN’T EXPECT FOR IT! :) ^_^ :’)


One of my friend in FRIENDSHIPS (JAM.SAN.NIE.MHEL)

“NIE” most known as Nicole Ann Delos Santos Bustamante but people call her simply as “NICOLE” 🙂 ^_^

Gave me this very touching and heart warming friendship letter..

I hope it’s not going to be the last letter that she will ever gave to me..

the letter in it says that:

“Dear Berna,
First of all, I would like to say thank you for being
a nice friend. Grabe, hindi na ko masyadong sanay magsulat
ng mga letter eh, kaya wala ko masyado masabi. Lagi naman
tayong magkakasama eh. Tsaka college na rin naman tayo kaya
siguro ganito ang feeling na parang we’re very open na sa isa’t
isa kaya di na need ng letter. But still gumawa pa rin ako
ng letter to show how much I treasure our friendship. Through
the coming years we’re not sure if magiging classmate pa
rin tayo. So, in this little thing, I hope you will appreciate
it, because this is the sign that “I will never forget you”.
Girl, you will always be a part of my life that I love
to treasure. Thanks for everything and sorry sa mga bagay na
nagawa ko, maybe it nis just a character of mine that you
accept at the same time you meet me, so I’m really grateful
to have you in my life. Take care always!!! Love yah . . .

love lots,

Everyday I’m always reading this letter.. *SWEAR and PROMISE that’s TRUE! I’M TELLING THE TRUTH!*

Every time that i read this letter it always makes me cry..

Because i really appreciate not only the letter, but also the person who wrote this letter and that’s NICOLE..

I also appreciate that she value our friendship so much..



Hope to see you again..

Take care!

It all began on..

JUNE 19, 2010! *FRIENDSHIP MONTHSARY or more likely as our FRIENDSARY!

Every time i see this photos..

I always remember a lot of things..


A lot of what you call “FIRSTS!”

This day is the first time that i bond with the FRIENDSHIPS..

We went on our school to buy our book requirement for our Assignment in Filipino I

But.., there are no stocks available,

So we just hang out around the school campus..

And then.., after that..,

We went to the computer shop!

It’s my first time to go to a computer shop!

Because ever since i was a child..

I’m afraid to go inside a computer shop,

Because of it’s ambiance and surroundings,

And it’s too dark inside a computer shop..

But during this what we call “FIRST TIME!”,

My first impression about a computer shop change..

And almost everything change..

And most importantly and most especially..

This is..
