The time has arrived! Finally, the second franchise movie of Avengers is now showing on the cinemas. The excitement we had was unmeasurable. I am surely a marvel fan. This post might have some spoilers so I am warning you. Haha

First of all, who is Ultron? According to my research and theory, (let us say once upon a time I got curious and got addicted on searching about Marvel characters. Tee hee!) he was built by Ant-man the first avengers ever. I think that's reason why they will make it to a movie because to connect the dots. Moreover, Ultron is a program, an Artificial Intelligence patterned to Hank Pym's (also known as Ant-man) brain. Unfortunately, ant-man has a dual personality. Ultron got that part also, the lunatic side of Hank Pym. Because he has the mind of his own, he wants to evolve the earth. He wants peace but on a different level. He wants the extinction of human beings.

On the movie, they introduce new avenger’s member like Vision, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. They have extra ordinary powers. Then again, there is Hawk Eye. Mortal. Haha I love the part when he was talking with Scarlet Witch about being an Avenger. He said that he was fighting robots with his bow and arrows. No one cares where he is. For me, it was a little unfair for him because everyone has an extra ordinary ability. I thought he will be killed at the end but thanks to Quicksilver, he was saved. However, Quicksilver died. Scarlet Witch got furious with Ultron so she killed him. 

Did you know? The twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksliver are the son and daughter of Magnito from X-men. How amazing the the crossover of the characters. I am really impressed with the world of Marvels. How could Stan Lee and the gang thought of every darn thing! Brilliant imagination to the extreme.

By the way, the surprise hero to the movie was Vision. He should be the new body of Ultron but the downloading of the program was not finished so when Iron Man and Hulk got the capsule they reprogram it. Then, it was the result of the new hero called Vision. Everyone got stunned when they saw him holding the hammer of Thor. So it means, he is a good guy. Only the deserving person can hold Thor’s hammer and can also rule his kingdom, Asgard.

This movie was superb. No dull moment for sure. The stunts were amazing. Everyone has their own spotlight on the movie. I am really looking forward for the new Marvel movies soon! Next will be Ant-man and Fantastic Four for 2015. I can’t wait.

How about you? What are your thoughts for this movie? Share it below! I am excited to read it.

It's been so long since I posted my last #OOTD. Let me make it up for my blog. Due to public demand, lel. Kidding. Wala talaga nagdemand, I insisted it to myself to post this. Hahaha Excuse my chubbiness again, the 10lbs. I lost before which I gained it again due to too much eating and a little stress and also change of environment. Yes! it is back! Fats are back! =)) Anyway, enough of my excuses. Because it is already hot in our country, I suddenly missed the cold weather in UK. 

Good thing I search the internet on what to wear and the temperature of the place during winter. I really prepared for it because I am easily get cold at times and scared that I might got high fever, if I can't handle the cold weather. Haha My auntie's advice was to buy a thermal clothes and layering of clothes is the key. Because we will be spending our time mostly outside the streets of London, I have 4 layers of clothes. Haha  I don't regret it.

Black coat from Zara | Bag from Aldo

Turtle neck and kitty sweater from Terranova | Checkered leggings from Forever21 | Ankle boots from River Island | Leather gloves from Uniqlo

Where's my missing earring pose. Hahaha My first layer will be the thermal longsleeve and thermal leggings. Then, gray turtle neck and sweater. Lastly, leggings and coat plus leather gloves. 

Vandalism on the walls of Abbey House hahaha making the mark like a boss! Lol

Posing beside my house. Haha 

Guest what? For the whole 2 weeks, I am just wearing the same coat. Who cares?! Hehehe I don't want to splurge on it because the odds on wearing here on a tropical country will be none. Haha Sulit yun bili ko! It feels like I just roam around UK with one outfit because of my coat. I can't remove my coat and pose. The coldness was too much. Hindi kaya magtiis ganda. I'll die. HAHA

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my #OOTD! Till next time! 

I am back with the part 2 of our tour on Warner Bros. Studio. If you haven't seen the PART 1, click here!!! One post is not enough! I have a lot to share. Hoorrrey! More Harry Potter photos. 

The Marble Staircase that moves and change in the certain time. You might get lost if it suddenly change on your way to your dormitory. Mostly likely shown on the 1st and 2nd movie.

Nimbus 2000. Oh quidditch! How I wish it was true. I want to ride a flying broomstick and play as a seeker. 

Mad-eye Moody's Trunk. It was the place where the real moody was kept.  

The Secret Door. 

The Burrow. The house of Weasleys. It was so cozy.

There was a tutorial for using wands and spells.

The Dark Eaters.

Some parts of the Ministry of Magic. Mostly shown on the 5th movie.

The Butterbeer. I thought it was a real beer. I was really questioning the people serving butterbeer because they were serving it to the kids. But I am certainly wrong.hahaha It was like a sweet soda drink with soft ice cream on it. Yummy! £4 with the souvenir cup.

After the cafe (which I forgot to take of photos on it), outside you can find the Privet Drive, night bus, Hogwart's bridge and other cool stuff.

Privet Drive. The place where harry stays on the muggle world.

The Hogwarts Bridge. Up close.

The life size chess pieces were shown the first movie.

The Dementor. Remember the spell for the dementors? It's expecto patronum!!!! Haha That's my favorite spell! (wala lang. share ko lang. pabibo lang hahaha) I have another one! Obliviate! The spell Hermione used to erase the memories of her parents.

Creature Shop. Amazing how they make the prosthetic makeup.

Animating and graphics.

The Marauder's Map. 

Paper model for Hogwarts.

Hogwarts. It is not a real castle though. :( But the details were brilliant. 

Inside Ollivander's Wand Shop

The last part of the tour. The merchandise. I went really cray cray and I don't know which to item to pick.

Well, my goal was to buy a Griffindor scarf. Then, other things was randomly picked like the harry potter glasses, fudge flies and a Warner Bros. Studio cap for my bae. Hahaha The photo above was the last day to wore my Griffindor scarf. Push ko talaga na masuot eh. Sinulit ko, one week ko suot yan. Hahahaha hangang paguwi ko ng pinas mahilo hilo na ako sa init, sige lang. Ginusto ko yan eh hahaha I know the fact that here in our country the possibility to wear the scarf is really really low. Winter is not known here the tropical country of the Philippines. That's the main reason of wearing it non-stop in UK. hihi I am such a geek, right? Wearing the scarf on the streets of London or elsewhere. haha 

That's for now! I will find more things to post about my trip. Thank you for hanging around with me. *wink *wink

The Making of Harry Potter on Warner Bros. Studio is located at Leavesden. It was a dream come true. From Waterloo Train station, we change to underground line - London Euston then another train station overground to Watford Junction. Outside the station, there will be a shuttle bus to Warner Bros. Studios for only £2 roundtrip. There will be shuttle every 30 minutes until 6:30pm. It was almost 2 hours travel time from Waterloo Station to Watford Junction because of the waiting and being lost at the moment kind of time. haha

Ta-da! We are here!!! The joy I have when we arrived was unexplainable. Hahaha Imagine a Potterhead on Warner Bros. Studio. I went gaga! Haha I was like "Can you take a photo using my phone? In my instax? In my SLR?" Hahaha too much camera! This place was on of my priority list. If you want to visit the place, it is best to check out there site and buy the tickets in advance. Most of the time they have sold out tickets for a certain day. Many fans were visiting the place. Incredible! Let me give you a sneak peek on our studio tour. Ready? Here we go!!!

Before the tour starts, this will be the first item you will see. Harry Potter's room in muggle world. 

Once the line was full, everybody will enter a room with 8 small screens. People behind Harry Potter were talking about how they started the movie. 

Then, another room will be like a movie house. Once the cast of Harry Potter started to enter a large gate and welcomed everybody. The screen will go up and this gate will arise!!!!! Unexpected! Everyone was with ooohs and aaahss. It gave me the chills.

The golden gate will be the entrance to all the props and secrets of the movie. This is the Great Hall of Hogwarts.

Professor Minerva McGonagall, Professor Albus Dumbledore, Professor Severus Snape costumes

Producers and Directors corner

The truth on the floating candles on the Great Hall. 

The Great Chocolate Feast. Not real chocolates. :(

The Yule Ball - it was like the Hogwarts version of prom.

Hair and Make up - I can believed that Malfoy's hair was just a wig. haha 

Selfie time. That's me!

The memorable items. Find the golden snitch.

The Golden Egg from Goblet of Fire (4th book).

Dumbledor's Office. Very detailed.

Remember the frames that moves. Well this is it. The secret for the painting were just plain backgrounds.
