The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Cast INVADES COMIC CON '12!


Agree with me? *I can picture you out nodding your head with me*

For several years already, Twilight fans [Twi-Hards, TwiFans, Twilighters or any other name you want to call them] had already built the habit of attending Comic Con once it is announced that The Twilight Saga cast will do a fan panel. *Yes. We have very dedicated members of the Twilight fandom/family. If only I have the means to go there, I will surely be one of those people lining up and waiting for the panel to start*

This year was quite different from the others [not talking about the HYPE over here], a fan *Gisella G* met an accident and died just a day before the fan panel. The whole Twilight family were saddened when this news broke. Even the stars paid respect for our fellow Twilight fan. Again, RIPTwiFanG

Speaking of HYPE, after years of The Twilight Saga ...the hype hasn't died down instead it gotten bigger over the years. *NODS HEAD, right?* 

On this year's panel, many of the cast members were in attendance. And for the very first time Mackenzie Foy who portrays the role of Renesmee (Edward and Bella's daughter) joins the rest of the cast in this one crazy fan event. 

Phew. Every single moment of that Twilight Comic Con event will surely be treasured by the fans considering that it was the last one. Yep. LAST. 

So here are some of the pictures of the cast from the event:

International Books: TRANSLATED to FILIPINO!

Precious Pages Corporation (PPC), the company behind the very successful Precious Hearts Romances (PHR) is very known in the Philippine Market for its thousands of published Tagalog romance pocketbooks.

Martha Cecilia, Rose Tan, Vanessa, Heart Yngrid, Sonia Francesca, Angel Bautista, Laurice del Rio and Amanda are just some of the known authors of PHR pocketbooks. These paperbacks that they usually write are about 128 pages (minimum) and can be bought in the market for P37 (cheapest price in the market). Some of these stories where even made into TV shows in ABS-CBN (I'm sure you remember Precious Hearts Romances  presents: Bud Brothers.)  

TWILIGHT copies on my table. Finally, it will be out in the market
next week May 23, 2012. 
Visit any Precious Pages stores and 
 grab a copy of this limited premium Filipino version of TWILIGHT.
But shifting gears, last May 18 while I was surfing the internet a certain picture on my news feed caught my attention. 

Precious Hearts Romances translating Twilight in Tagalog. With that, making the title as TAKIPSILIM. [Which brings back all the memories from '09, wherein rumors were circulating that a certain Philippine TV station will be doing a Philippine version of Twilight] 

I was really shocked on what I saw (for I am a Twilight Saga fan, myself) and I don't know what to expect from this. I was really worrying over on what they could have possibly done to my favorite novel. Making it a TRENDING TOPIC among us Twilight fans in our Facebook groups. 

Fans were having MIXED EMOTIONS. 

But as PHR posted on their Facebook page, they just wanted to give the readers a choice , a variation on how they want to read the bestselling books out on the market - English (original language of the books) or in Filipino (translated). CHOICE is the keyword there.

Well, I guess Twilight (Takipsilim) did well in terms of their sales and the readers dig it. Why? For they are now venturing in doing a Filipino translation of ... The Hunger Games Trilogy and Fifty Shades Trilogy. 

What can you say about this TRIBUTES and Fifty Shades of Grey lovers
