TRON Night: An IMAX Experience


Last Thursday, October 28, I was able to secure myself an invite to TRON Night, a sneak preview of the upcoming Tron Legacy movie this December 17, shown at IMAX theaters nationwide. The event was held by Walt Disney Studios Philippines and it was a superb IMAX experience once again.


Tron Night preview shows a 20-minute screening from the movie Tron Legacy. Presenting the important scenes that comprises the movie, Sam's discovery of TRON, the fight scenes (or disc wars as they defined) and search for his long lost father.

Defining the movie in IMAX was superb because when their vehicles zoom on the IMAX screen, you can almost feel that you're part of the show. The disc wars' effects was so inviting that you would wanna play one too.


Thanks to Peanut Butter Co. too for the sumptuous food. I never loved peanut butter but this one definitely tickled my taste buds. Also a performance from the New System Dancers, who wore caps with blinking lights and glow sticks capped the program.


Catch Tron Legacy on December 17 on IMAX theaters near you and discover the legacy that will take you great heights and action packed scenes that is definitely interactive and cutting edge.

Love DELICIOUS? Love DKNY's Be Delicious!


I've always loved DKNY's Be Delicious scents. When I first got hold of DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom (Limited Edition), I swear I couldn't leave home without it. The bottle is an eye-candy for me. Even my friends loved the scent and the design.

When I found out that I could design my own DKNY bottle, I couldn't help but make one myself. I made a base of pink because its my favorite color, put up a "DIVA" sign, because singing is one of my passions, designed it with cupcakes and cream pies because sweets are the most delicious thing on Earth. My design suits with my personality --Bubbly, Sweet, Girly and most of all, Fabulously Delicious! And just so you know, any DKNY girl can attest to these traits.

Supermodel Lara Stone and Be Delicious are both seductive and approachable, sweet and sophisticated

WHY APPLES?

Five years ago, DKNY took the design of apple for their bottles as the universal symbol of seduction, as well as the icon of the famous New York City and bottled it with love, just like hearts. And as apples have the juiciest and irresistible scent, DKNY Be Delicious decided to take its fragrance as their signature line and was loved by the public immediately. Soon after, the Be Delicious were perfected not just for women, but also for men who loves its delectable scent.

Be Delicious Apple Bottle

Just this month, Be Delicious Eau De Toilette Spray was introduced-- a lighter, brighter and more refreshing juicy American apple note surrounded by the crisp green wetness of grapefruit and magnolia. At the heart lies tuberose, white muget, rose and shining violet, finished with smooth sandalwood, blond woods and white amber.

As DKNY Be Delicious turned FIVE YEARS OLD, it is now considered as New York City's "State of Mind", a way of life and a promise of what could be. Made especially for the MODERN EVE, DKNY Be Delicious is for the spirited, spontaneous and naturally sexy. And most of all, it is for the SIMPLY DELICIOUS.

DELICIOUS CORE CLUB


DKNY Fragrances specifically made a new-on-the-pulse digital social community for the DKNY Fan -- THE DELICIOUS CORE CLUB. It is an interactive page where you can enter to connect and talk with the fellow DELICIOUS fans. By entering the Delicious Core Club, you can also design your own Be Delicious Bottle, whatever suits your fancy and input your personal style. The Delicious Core Club will also launch the "Find Your Style Profile", Core Gal Interviews, Fragrance Notes Lookbook, etc. You can join the club by liking http://www.facebook.com/dkny

DKNY is ripe for love, life and adventure. And just like the modern eve's persona, its a no-holds- barred, SIMPLY DELICIOUS scent that you will forever love.

Do You Have the FUNK? Try Funky Bowling at SM Supermalls!

You Got (Bowling) Balls?

I'm a first time bowler. Well at a real bowling lane, to be exact. And when the bloggers were invited for a "Funky Bowling", I just had to try it, no questions asked!

Let's Get Ready to Bowl the Night Away!

SM Bowling Centers offers world-class service in terms of its facilities and they accommodate the players well by having fully automated lanes, colorful pin indication graphics, compact console, dual overhead monitors and complete bowling necessities.

When I thought I'm at expert in bowling, (due to countless Wii Bowling games at the office) SM Supermalls' FUNKY BOWLING is an exceptional when it comes to the sport. It doesnt really train you to be the next Paeng Nepomuceno, but it will give you and your friends a laugh and a half and makes you challenge yourself if you're willing to don crazy positions in front of everyone.

Here's the Funky Ways of Playing

Funky Bowling consists of 4 players per team. One team is given ten challenges for them to complete and compete with the other teams. I was assigned to Team E with Earth, Jayson and Alex and took the first turn. My challenges were to bowl backwards between my knees where I scored after the second turn and to bowl while sitting indian style, where I find very difficult so it made the gutters everytime I try. Team F won as the Funky Team and special awards were handed to the Most Funky Bowler, MVP, Gutter Award. An Epson Printer was also raffled off as it is one of the sponsors for the Funky Bowling Bloggers' Night.

We almost had it!

The verdict? Funky Bowling is FUN, FUN, FUN when you want to try it with your family and friends. It isn't exactly Olympic worthy, but it will win you more friends and lots of giggles while playing.

Wanna try FUNKY BOWLING? SM Supermalls invites everyone to join the FUNKY HALLOWEEN BOWL which happens on October 30 at SM Mall of Asia and SM City Fairview and on October 31 at SM North EDSA and SM City Cebu. Get ready for an extreme excitement with good music and activities that will spook your socks off, bowlers style.

Baguio, The 2010 Edition

When I was younger, my family and I would always go to Baguio every year. But everytime I go there, I would always experience different things. Like when my childhood friends Joy, Anne, Stephanie and Shasha went there with our Moms and our siblings, it ice-like water rained from the sky. I also played my first game of UNO cards (care of Jayson), and we friends had heart to heart talks about our lives.

Now that were older, we don’t tag along with our Moms anymore. So I dragged my boyfriend and my friends Mench and Alvin for a weekend trip to Baguio. And despite the storm Megi (Juan) coming with us to the Northern part of the Philippines, we still went. Rain or no rain.

Yep, its uber sunny in Baguio

Jeff fetched me at around 4AM. After picking me up, we went to Ortigas to get Mench. But we were there a little early so we decided to roam around Emerald Avenue first to see the craze about Banchetto. Mench and Shang would always insist I join them but I haven't had time to do so. But nothing tickled my boyfriend's fancy so we just parked in front of her condominium and waited for her. At 5:15, we were cruising along EDSA. By 11AM, a sunny but chilly Baguio City was waiting for us.

And because the four of us were already starving, and we didn't go to any stopovers (except when someone has to go to the rest room), we had our lunch at SM Baguio, the only SM where air-conditioning is not necessary and much colder outside the premises.

Nice right?

We stayed at North Pine Transient House located at 117 Scout Barrio, Baguio City, just passing by a few minutes to Camp John Hay. At first, we had a little trouble locating it but I guess being lost was worth it.

Our room has a view of the pine trees

For Php550/night/2 persons, it was quite a deal for me. The room was spacious enough for me to move, they have their own CR in each room, you can also use the refrigerator and when you look outside the veranda, hundreds of pine trees will feast into your eyes. The neighborhood was quiet and intimate. And just what I was looking for because I needed a rest. And much-awaited one at that. :D

After mass, because we got there safe and sound

After settling down, we decided to rest first because we all had a sleepless night. I'm not sure if its because of excitement, or were just used to sleeping late. At 4PM, we decided to go down the city. Because we had a safe drive, I insisted we go to Baguio Cathedral to pray. Good thing, an anticipated mass was ongoing, so we didn't have to go to church the next day anymore.

Mongolian Love

By dinnertime, By suggested we eat at this quaint Mongolian restaurant near Burnham Park named O' Mai Khan. I remember when we went to Baguio during Panagbenga last year, Jenny told me about the eat-all-you can Mongolian resto. I found out that By and her are talking about the same thing.

Fresh from Baguio City!

While Mench and Alvin ate ala carte dishes served by the restaurant, By and I tried the Mongolian-All-You-Can, where you would put all your desired toppings in a bowl and they would fry it for you. And it only costs Php195! Unlike the Mongolian resto downstairs our office. Well we have to consider that Baguio vegetables costs less than in Manila.

After dinner, we roamed around hoping to catch Ukay Ukay vendors but sadly, the rain poured mildly so we just headed home to rest.

Day 2: Tiring it up the whole day

Thanks for the wonderful six months By! :D

After breakfast, we went downtown again so we could buy thingies that our families made us buy. I didn't buy strawberries at the market anymore because I know we'd go to Strawberry Farm anyway. We all decided to meet at McDonald's at 11AM so we could concentrate on the things we needed to buy. Then after a few minutes, he gave me the prettiest bouquet of roses I've ever received. :)

Pink Horse!

After all's been set, we all went to Mines View Park, one of Baguio's hot spots. Saw a pink horse, where I specifically asked to take a picture with, for Php10 per shot. Alvin and Mench took theirs with the two St. Bernard dogs which are fluffy and friendly. Their looked like stuffed toys.

Overlooking the mountains

Finally! Strawberry taho. :D

Then of course, we just had to take a shot at the picturesque mountain view. The mountains are so green and lovely. They are so soothing to look at. When we went outside the park, a vendor of Strawberry Taho called us. Baby insisted I buy one since I was craving for it since day one. For Php20, I was quite satisfied.

The First Couple? LOL

Great Jumpshot By!

After Mines View, we went to The Mansion and Wright Park. Too bad, going inside the place was off limits. So we just took pictures at the lawn. Mench even wanted to take a picture near "THE MANSION" name but we told her that she should keep off the grass. What a riot!


Styrofoam Packed Strawberries, FTW!

We then headed to La Trinidad to visit the Strawberry Farm. Unfortunately, they just planted strawberries so we couldn't pick fresh ones from the ground. The vendors are also selling the remaining harvested strawberries for fear that the typhoon might come already. The boys went out trying the wines and bought whatever suits their taste.

We are still kids at heart

After Strawberry Farm, we went to By's Dad's school at LNBC. The kids went playing even if the rain started to fall. When we got tired, we settled on having our early dinner at Jack's Restaurant.

Jack's Beef Broccoli is to die for!

Jack's Restaurant is a staple at Benguet. Because their meals are sumptuous and their servings are big enough, visitors come and go. I believe people loves taking their lunch there on weekends. I guess were just lucky that few diners were there that time. They have rice meals that costs Php70 and up. I had my fill of Beef Broccoli, while the three had Jack's Rice, a serving of chicken, pork and vegetables. I went out of the restaurant full and happy. :)

At 6PM, we went to the house again to rest. By and I played dominoes and UNO cards while Mench and Alvin retired for the day. And because boyfriend and I aren't that tired yet, we drove around Baguio City at night. We went to SM Baguio first and thought of watching a movie. But it was boring and it was so hot inside, so we decided to just walk along Session Road.

We went to Burnham Park but it was so dark and the rain started to fall lightly. So we took the car from SM and drove around again. In the dark. Went to Teacher's Camp, Lourdes Grotto, Camp John Hay and other places that almost got us lost. But I told him that anywhere we go to, we'll just end up to one place, SM BAGUIO. :P

Day 3: Typhoon Juan is Coming

By and I woke up before 7AM and the wind is starting to sweep the pine trees again. He asked us if we should leave immediately before the typhoon starts coming to Baguio. Good thing were all packed up in case we needed to leave already because our folks at home are worried about us.

Thank God we left Baguio in time before Juan hits the North

Leaving quickly, we said goodbye to our beloved Baguio at 8AM. We are cruising Pangasinan by 10AM. Then the typhoon went havoc by the afternoon.

And you know what, it was indeed a lucky, lucky trip. :) God never intended to make us feel harmed. And that, we all have to be thankful of.

Can't wait for another road trip with By again. Thanks for your patience and for the trip itself. It was the best monthsary I ever had. :)

Now where to go next? So many places to discover! :D

Filipinize The World: Remembering Francis M and his Works


One Love, FMCC

Francis Magalona is one of the Philippines' unforgettable icon. His music, movies, and even photography was admired by many. But his last endeavor before he left this lifetime, the FRANCIS MAGALONA CLOTHING COMPANY will continue to flourish, even if he already joined his Creator.

Francis M's movies

Awards and memorabilia

Clothes during his stint

Last October 4, also FM's birthday, marked the 4th Anniversary of the birth of Urban Patriotism themed, "Filipinize the Whole World", that ran until the 8th of the month. Held at the Outerspace Gallery at The Collective, Malugay St., Makati City, an exhibit of Francis M's artifacts, films, photography and awards were shown to the public.

More awards all throughout the years

His humongous toy collection

Who wouldn't envy his comic collection? Which some are signed copies

Francis M's Photography

On the last day of the event, I was able to attend and see the exhibit through Orange Magazine TV. Not only did I got more acquainted with Francis M's works, but we seem to look into his personal life, his hobbies, and even the people he loves the most. I even got the chance to see his kids, Maxene, Elmo and Saab, and his wife Pia Magalona, who were all present during the special night. Gloc 9 and Dice & K9 also joined the affair.

Mitch and I with Maxene :)

Bloggers with Elmo Magalona

The girls and Geri with Gloc 9

The night was capped off with a gig at B-Side with performances from Gloc 9, Pin Ups, DJ Rye, J-Rad, MC Dash with Elmo Magalona and The Mags.

The night has been a celebration of Francis M's success and telling the Filipinos that his legacy still lives.

Scoring for the Perfect Shoes? PAY LESS!


When I doubt for dress sizes, the best way to glam up is by wearing the perfect shoes!


Last week, I went to SM Megamall and saw the most fabulous store ever (well, aside from Forever 21 where I plan to splurge once bonus season comes), I walked across a nifty shop where “awesome” is the only word that came out of my mouth.



Payless Shoesource came from the far, faraway land of United States of America. And now I’m so thankful that they brought it here for us. Especially for the ladies who know their footsies. Located at the second floor of Mega A. Prices of the shoes range 1000up for adults and 600up for kids.



What I love about the shop is how they made it look like a giant stockroom, that way, you won’t have to throw fits to salespersons if they follow you all around the store. Every aisle also specifies the shoe size. They have flats, which I adore, by the way. And they also have flip flops for 300plus.



Christmas is really around the corner. I can’t wait to go there again to buy flats as a treat for myself during happiest season of the year. Shoes are definitely a girl’s best friend, and Payless Shoesource happens to be a greatest place to find one.
