Special Movie Screening of Disney's Maleficent By Nuffnang Philippines and Globe Prepaid

I got an email alert from Nuffnang Philippines that they have a special movie screening of Disney's Maleficent courtesy of Globe Prepaid.Im so excited because I'd won to their blogger contest last year for the special movie screening of Thor 2.In order for me to win, I just have to create an entry titled 20 Ways You Can Be Best Friend Ever ) . I thought I only have a small chance to make it to the Top 100 slots but fortunately, I made it when I got an email from Nuffnang Philippines.

My real name is Raymond Lustado.Did you find me???

Since the promo is about our BFF so bring my friend, Therese to the movie screening.She's the reason I'm so active on joining the contest and discovering my luck in this kind of contest.But Therese is very much active than me.You can check out her blog for some of her entries that she submitted (

We really enjoyed the movie.Actually we thought that the movie will finish at 11:50 since it was started at 9:50 pm but the movie done at 11:30 pm.Therese has a shift at 12:00 midnight.

I'm really expect a giveaway from Globe Prepaid because last year, I got a coffee tumbler but now they level up: they gave me a 4GB Flash Drive.It's so cute because I thought it's a simple key chain but Therese told me it's a flash drive.

Print Social is part of the event. I so love them because you just have to post a picture on Instagram with a hashtag #GlobeGoUnli20 and after the movie, the printed picture is ready to pick it up.

Here's some little spoiler to you guys if you're still undecided to watch this.

1. First Angelina Jolie so incredible as Maleficent
2. Elle Fanning looks so good and sweet as Aurora
3. The 3 Pixie Fairies are so funny and adorable just like 3 Stooges
4. Watch out for her wings...It has its own like so watch out how...
5. The True Love Kiss is not the Prince.I so love the twist.

There are three lessons that I've learn from this movie:

1. Be careful what you wish for because you might get it and the worst, you might cant reverse it. ( This is somehow a spoiler, hehehe )
2. Don't say or make a decision while at your peak of your emotion ( Maleficent was so hurt in the movie, :(   ) 
3. There's always an understandable reason to someone's cruelty, ugly personality and/or acts.

As per soundtrack , I so love that Disney selected Lana Del Rey to sing the OST title Once Upon a Dream.the track is very haunting, timeless and gives you a mysterious vibe.
Again, I really want to thank Globe Prepaid and Nuffnang Philippines for coming up with this movie screening contest.

Paisley Button Down Shirt + Beach Graphic Shorts

Summer is about to finish here in the Philippines so I need to post this look.

The short is such a great find because I bought it from SM Department Store and they were having a 3-day sale.It's already on sale for 50% off from plus SM Store was having an early bird promo for SM Advantage Card holder where we can get an additional 10% off on top of the discounted price.The Early Bird Promo is valid on the 1st day of the 3-day sale period from 10am to 12noon.But for this kind of sale, expect a long line of customer.You know what, its my first time to experience to stay in the line for more than an hour.So before you avail this early bird promo, make sure you bought everything that you need to get more discount so that tiring long line is very worth it.

Paisley Floral Printed Button Down - Thrifted
Beach Graphic Shorts - Coco Republic by SM Store
Flipflops - Banana Peel
The flip flops is also a great finds from the clearance sale of Banana Peel.From the original price of 440pesos, I only got it for only 220pesos.

Oversized Camouflage Shirt

I know, camouflage printed shirt is somehow in a transition of fading to the fashion scene but I just want to feature my camouflage shirt that I spotted in the thrift shop for only 50pesos.It's somehow big and loose for me but I noticed that huge shirt is now apparent to some recent men's fashion week.I'll post it soon on how to pull off this shirt without rolling it up.

Camouflage Shirt - Thrifted
Leather Bracelet, Tortoise Sunnies and Dog Tag - SM Accessories
Watch - Swap Watch by Tomato
Skinny Jeans - Bench
Suede Shoes - Thrifted

Blue Vintage Button Down

Printed short-sleeved button down shirt is so trending right now but I want to be different compare to the usual print that I spotted in some some store like floral, coconut trees and pineapple.I spotted this button down in the thrift shop for only 10pesos.I so love the fabric because is so soft so perfect for summer.I decided to bring it to my favorite alteration shop near us and have it re-size to my fave button down that I have which is perfectly fit to me.I so love how it turn out.

DIY Studded Plaid Vest

DIY Studded Plaid Vest - It used to be a long sleeved button down shirt when I got it from the thrift shop around 2008.But time goes by so I gained some weights so this one become too small for me so I decided to cut the whole sleeve.I'll update this blog once I take a detailed shot of this vest.This is perfect for summer season since the vest is very light to top it with a shirt or a tank top to add some cool, street style flair.And btw, the ripped jeans is also diy-ed.

20 Ways You Can Be The Best Friend Ever

I guess all of us have their own BFF ( Best-Friend-Forever) unless you're such a LONER...hahaha...Just kidding.But others don't know how to keep their friends so I come up with my own list on how you can be a BEST FRIEND EVER...

1. Learn How To Respect Yourself.
- If you don't do this then you can't respect others, right???

2. Don't Be Afraid To Be Vulnerable

3. Don't be afraid to point out his/her faults but in a nice way.
- We don't want to look like their parents or teachers.Remember, we're their best friend s say it in a nice way or probably say like throwing a joke.

4. Be Yourself
- Its tiring to be someone that is totally not us, right???. And other's don't like pretentious peeps so avoid it.

5.Don't Hold Things Up
- Talk about it if you have hard feelings towards your BFF.

6.Trust Is a Must
- Show to your BFF that you can trust them even their darkest secret that you'll definitely keep it to your grave. :)))

9.Never Leave The Problem Alone
- Fix it as soon as possible and don't let it last overnight.By doing this, it wont pop-up again later.

10.Respect Their Time To Be Themselves
- It's not healthy that you always there for them.There are times that they need to be independent

11.Spend Time Together
-Make an effort to do some catch-up moments at least once a week.

12.Share Laughs

15. Respect The Privacy.
Yeah, you are his/her BFF but there are some things that they're not comfortable to share to anybody.Give them time or just don't just bug them at all.Probably in the future they'll share it to you.

16. Get To Know Their Family.
- By doing this you'll show that you appreciate where they come from and knowing the people who are valuable to their life.

17. Avoid Expectation.
You're not their Guardian Angel who is always there.You also have your own life.At least try to make an effort that you're there in their side the BEST THAT YOU CAN.
