For the injured foot

just blogging 3 hours before leaving Manila for a mountain trip, will be there for a family gathering and xmas party. at last! party! hahahaa, been wishing for a xmas party and here that I will have a 5 hour travel. Just injured again my right foot, it seems that my foot injury years ago aches again and this injury happened 4 years ago when I accidentally fell on the stairs of the stage at the ToyCon. thats why we no longer use a higher stage every event because it nearly loose my foot. and you know what happened next? it left me crawling all the way home. its funny to think of it but its not that easy going down 5 floors and climbing Mcdonalds at St. Francis Square just to eat my dinner. and left me 2 weeks to recover and force myself to go out just to watch Spider-man 2.

now my foot just accidentally suffered a minor strain while ago at the Science and Discovery in Mall of Asia, I just twisted my ankle when I lined up for the digital theater show. At first didn't felt the pain, but after the 30 minute film feature at the theater, I started to have difficulty in walking and after some walkathon in the mall, play video game with Lace's family and after our dinner in La Mesa Grill, my right foot started to swell while inside my shoe.

I was supposed to leave going back to Pasig with my sis, but the terrible pain in my foot prevents me from going out and make a short rest. I just applied a Katinko ointment and massage it myself, while Lace gave a big support for me in dealing with the pain. I still have problems in walking and I can still feel the pain of my foot.

this blog entry seems to start a foot story, but im so scared that it will continue to ache in my travel moments. I'll just bring more ointment and have a big attention in my walks.

Science and Discovery at the SM Mall of Asia

we been planning for going in there and for a cost of P300, a kid will surely enjoy everything inside. Playing Grossology gave me a big hit and Im so embarrass that I got only 14% points, didnt answered all trivia questions, just realized that Im not that good if I join Game ka na ba show. hahhahaha.

The Flight simulator is nice, for a kid they will enjoy. its just a simulator and its like that your playing a classic pc game, i just hope that they upgrade that and install Afterburner flight simulation, yeah that will be cool, better also if there is a score and a GAME OVER.

Just saw a Segway transport and also a Darth Maul look a like bike, soooo cool ! i just want to see them moving and when I tried the Segway, it is really hard to stand up and balance it while it is moving, and no the Segway is not functional, but standing up on it is very difficult.

virtual sports is fun! me and Anya with her dad played the volleyball and basketball, although look funny when you play it. the video motion capture will capture your body and movements and it can interact with the ball and you can shoot it or hit it. its like having an action script or a behaviour command when you program a flash file design or video game, well i just heard it in my back of my head on how it works.

the 2nd level is full of robots!, they got a T-100 terminator lifesize, the lost in space robot, Astroboy and some toys like zoids, that dancing android, and R2D2 voice command toy. Too bad that they didn't included Transformers, if MC is reading this, I'm commanding you to donate one Ultimate Bumble Bee for them hahahahaha.

Lego Mindstorm learning center is inside and Im so interested in learning on how to run those droids made of Lego, the problem is that the kit cost at P30k as I heard it from the tour guide and for the learning center, you can take home some knowledge in building a robot and a certificate. The learning center is not yet operational but the staff said that you can just visit again and inquire if they are accepting new students.

there's this Earthquake simulation, its nice but it takes too long for your turn due to the long line. its just a simulation, you stand up and the floor shakes.

there's a talking fish inside the artificial-virtual sea aquarium. Anya was bugged by a talking fish looked like a clown fish. And it interacts with people, ask for the time ( i guess the voice actor wants to know his breaktime hahaha) and also talk to kids. so cute and scary hahhaha.

then the highlight attraction of the venue is the digital 360 degree theater, it is so huge!!!!!
i thought at first it was like a IMAX thing, but not that IMAX, but its 360 screen over your face.
the show we just watched titled "The mystery of the Christmas Star". the feature was great, the effects are wow! but i was expecting for a scifi-ish theme like space exploration or about the heavenly bodies, but the show was great and it is about the star of Bethlehem. I just learned that the star is a 3 part conjunction of 2 planets - Jupiter and Saturn.

now back to my foot, it still aches after we left the venue.

--

my videos ??!
wow! i just received another proposal from an indie film maker in the USA. it seems that my youtube files are attracting lots of offers. but this one film project is gratis, so what they offer is a credit for my contribution. its okay and i just dont want to earn money from a dancing grocery baggers at SM.

also i haven't shot my tv feature spot for another TV show in NYC. Its 2 months late and I haven't done it. I just got one shoot last month from an artist and it was a great segment, i just got word from the producer that I should upload it in high res format.
wow.. 5 min aint hurt that bad.

but my foot hurts!

New Filipino comics TV series in GMA 7 for 2008



thanks to Raffy for informing us this great news!, Now I’m excited to see a cross over series of Darna and Captain Barbell.
I’m still thinking who will be the actors for Darna and Capt. Barbell. Also check out Robin Padilla as the Joaquin Buradado, the prison guy who turns his tattoo into living animals. its a big wow for 2008! another Pinoy comic classic on TV. Also Gilda Olvidado’s Babangon ako at Dudurugin kita turns now into a TV series along with other Mars Ravelo’s superhero comic Darna and Capt. Barbell. and lastly Carlo J. Caparas’ Joaquin Burdado.

In the future, I hope they can turn some of the Ramon Revilla’s classic movies into TV Series, thats one of my wishlist and yes I’ll be happy to watch those and collect it.

Just saw this event coverage and item photos from the World Hobby Festival 17, that's in Japan.
this event is one of my inspiration for the toy show and also the toycon here in the Philippines, I just missed this event, and no! Im not going to Japan, but the updates and also the latest buzz about this event just missed my time to browse it. thanks to Danny Choo for the coverage.


My friend Patrick is in Japan today and he is so excited for the 2nd event of the Comiket, its a 2 day event for comics, manga and doujinshi, and its a haven for all anime merchandise. the event will on the end of this month and Im suspecting that the crowed will be double. More weird merchandise might released this weekend, I'll just wait for Patrick's report on the Comiket via internet.

natodas na ko! Topak Comics sold out ?!!

The image “http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/3900/topak106c818nv7.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Time to write an original content here in Komiks News Now. A day before Christmas, thats December 24. I went for a last minute shopping for my love ones here in Cavite and after buying all stuff for them I decided to visit the bookstore and magazine stands in the mall. I just saw some new comics and magazine published by our local publishers and also new adult content magazine who just surfaced without my knowledge.

Once I was inside the store I was looking for this new adult magazine, (not that porn, but its a FHM-ish style magazine) then when I was about to ask the bookstore clerk, a young kid with her mom went inside and inquired something. The kid inquired if they have a copy of Topak Comics. and that’s issue 2. My mind became active and thought of buying the same comics, because I already forgot to grab a copy of it last month after it was released and me featuring it here.

The mom of the kid suddenly burst into anger and told the kid what the hell is Topak comics? is it a comics for idiot people?
then the clerk pulled out a Topak Comics issue 2 out from the cabinet and the mom saw it, and said “ahhh its a comics. you buy these stuff and you make a lot of mess in your room and you will just misplaced it in your room” then the kid said, “im reading this comics! I want it!” then the mom paid for the comics after knowing it was only priced at lower than P100.

then it was my turn to buy at the same hype as the kid I want a Topak comics too. then the clerk look around and

Resiklo movie review

the movie is now up and an early review is shared and posted in my comments board at my multiply page. I'm excited already to get amazed and also disappointed in seeing this movie, thats why i save a lot of my expectation for the film.

you can share your reviews and post it here at my multiply resiklo vs. mech warrior blog page

here are some of the review posted there.

But this Resiklo, i felt Ill on my sit & i want to walk out if i just don't have someone with me who might call me "KJ" so i still watched half my eye open. pretending to be watching. i really felt the pain of paying 130PHP for this movie and i just hope i waited a while to watch it in Youtube for free because i will not continue watching it at all.Oh, no!!! i think i should say they should have paid me for watching this disgusting movie on the first place. However, this review i think is enough to announce to people not to patronize IMUS PRODUCTIONS produced movies or the 2nd RESIKLO if there may. now i understand why people want Pirated DVDs/VCDs its because its really not worth the money. and Oh!!! in case i just knew resiklo has been this devastating, i wouldn't even bother Buying a Pirated Copy of this!!! -posted by aseneta, source : www.critiko.blogspot.com

There is not much to like about Resiklo, yes. I admit that. It could be better. But you have to admire Imus Productions for daring to take a risk and take a step forward in Philippine Cinema. It may have been quite a fumbly step, but at least they took it and showed everyone that it is possible for Pinoys to make a decent effects movie, even at a Hollywood substandard budget.Unlike the other production outfits who just play it safe, churning out only sequels to their money-makers like "Mano Po 255" or "Enteng Kabisote 306: The Legend Never Ends". - posted by BJ

Stick it fast

time to blog more and while im resting its fun to be here at home and enjoy the long vacation. well, i dont have an office, so i dont have my own long vacation ahahaha, but for the people here at home it will be the perfect get away for them.

just spent the day with my sis and Lace's family here in cavite and its fun to eat all day, play with her niece, surf the net, transfer all data to my external hard drive and also eat again. I just dont know what will be my plans for tomorrow since everyone are still having their xmas break and having a big hang over after the big feast.

Last night at the Xmas eve mass just remind me back of my high school days, yes. because i studied in a private catholic school and i just remember the way they told me about attending mass every sunday, but today in my age and life, i think i have attended a mass for only 5 times a year. hmmm, thats one from the Quiapo feast, my graduation, ash wednesday, in school, and xmas mass.

i just got mad at those people outside the church who pop out some firecrackers and baby rockets after the mass, i just shouted at them and already lost my xmas spirit on that time.
got mad because i warned them that they should fire that away from the people and the church.
the flares and the smoke and it exploded near our area where a baby was carried and i got pissed because it nearly hit us. hay...

anyway, we are now preparing to sleep and i guess I'll be having a mini marthon.
just got these MaskMan dvd from CSCENTRAL and they are in english sub, created by CSCENTRAL too. astig di ba. now i can watch the final episodes of Maskman.

then tomorrow il watch the season 2 ender of HEROES. it just made me crazy after i watched the episode 9-10.

whew! ok more to blog tomorrow.
a hot chick who cuts hair byherself is calling me to bed
