The hunter is still hunting

http://photos-173.friendster.com/e1/photos/37/13/313173/1_478242150l.jpg

The hunt is back again, and it means that I'm on a job hunting, yes! thats correct and the job searching just starting hours ago and for the first time in 8 years, I just updated my resume and happy to put in there that I'm a college graduate, yeah I graduated last 2007 and been stuck on freelance stuff since 2001 and haven't got a stable job. I might quit a little in organizing events, but might target only the bigger events, You might know what I'm referring to. I can still put some time on fixing marketing stuff and web jobs for the event.

So here I am, just sent my 1st hot and fresh resume to a company in Ortigas and Makati. Hopefully I can get a reply from them and I'm very excited to embrace the world of this so called full time day job haahaha.

the photo above is me roleplaying a Coca Cola endorser model ahahhaa. ( photo credits to pinayads.com)

Friday coffee madness with Spot.ph members at Starbucks Rockwell drive



Spot.ph invited us members for a coffee appreciation and workshop at Starbucks Coffee in Rockwell drive, and me and Lace just arrived late and missed the intro and new coffee drinks that was prepared to all of us. The event is also a community meet up of Spot.ph members and glad that they included me in their list and here I am with Lace enjoying new cakes and coffee drinks at Starbucks.

The people of Starbucks just taught us on how to appreciate and drink a good coffee by just smelling it, also they introduced to us these new single origins that will be availalbe in all branches, just tasted coffee with beans of Sumatra, Colombia and Estima. And since Im a big coffee fan, I always never mind the taste of any kinds of coffee and I'm more on the drinking pleasure of it only, but I learned the importance of knowing the kinds of beans and how to brew it properly. I just read this hand out in how to prepare a good coffee using a coffee press, and glad that Lace's mom own a coffee press here at home, because I'm wondering that I should try grinding and brewing my own coffee and maybe I can have my own recipe. ( more below)



Starbucks introduced to us these cakes Creme Caramel Cheesecake, Honey Oat and Apple Loaf, and Chocolate Hazelnut Chantilly. These cakes were paired to a matching coffee and it taste more yummier than you expected. And I enjoy the taste of a cheesecake and Colombian coffee, take a sip of a coffee and eat a slice of cheesecake, you'll experience a heavenly taste after it. And coffee and cheesecake never fails me because I love it and best match for coffee. But over all, I like the Colombian coffee, it gives me the taste of a regular and bitter taste, which I need it for my taste buds. For the Sumatra coffee, its kinda tasteless for me, but others say that it is more tastier than other coffee origins, but at first I was thinking of "salabat" ahhaha, but I was wrong.

During the intro of coffees and cake, Zara of Rustans coffee corp. , who spearheaded the seminar with us, conducted 2 trivia game contest, and because that I'm very confused in answering their questions about guessing the coffee origin but determining its aroma, I failed to answer all of it and just copied Lace's answer ahhahaa.


It was a great night and we just survived a massive traffic jam on the way to Rockwell, but I'm glad that we have a great coffee night during the Friday madness. thanks to Spot.ph and Starbucks Coffee for inviting us. And oh..we took home also goodies.. and its really great to have my own Starbucks crystal mug at home, and the feeling of using it every morning with my coffee makes my morning really weird and my coffee tastes better hahahahaha.

http://images.popazrael.multiply.com/image/2/photos/708/500x500/11/P1250061.jpg?et=DLCLm1cOaYF62ZvnKSWrIg&nmid=186424819

I was watching the sky of Jan. 25th and I was waiting for the dramatic sunset, so minutes before the Sunset, I just saw this bright star above, I immediately take a pic of it and keep it in my archives.

then I didn't realized that it was the planet Venus.

last night Jan. 29th. our crescent moon and Venus has a conjuction
and I saw it last night while me and Lace were walking in the long road of Salcedo Village in Makati, I'm staring and it looks like that smiling figure last time, but today we have only one star above the crescent moon.

i forgot to check it out again if venus and moon are still in conjunction.
but will try my luck on the coming night time and will take a photo of it.

coverage : Komiks Presents- Flash Bomba press con @ Dolphy Theater

http://images.popazrael.multiply.com/image/4/photos/705/500x500/286/P1270326.jpg?et=qAujMkQVyBme2piYSXZTeg&nmid=183475925

I was at the press conference of ABS CBN's new mini tv series of Komiks Presents : Flash Bomba, and believe me that I experienced a big goosebumps because all the origin and powers of Flash Bomba really adapted from the komiks done by Mars Ravelo and Nestor Maglapo. It was a great sight to see the Luis Manzano as Flash Bomba in costume and enjoyed listening to him while he answered all questions from the press and media. (Read more below)

Funny to hear that Flash Bomba is now being dubbed as the Superhero for all season, and because that Luis's mom is Vilma Santos as the Star for all season, Luis Manzano fit for the role and considered as part of a royal super hero family, because in the past movies, Vilma Santos as Darna and Luis's dad Edu Manzano play as Captain Barbell, all I can say is that they are Mars Ravelo babies. I just heard that the Flash Bomba series will be the last installment of the Komiks Present on TV, and heard in the future that they are now launching a original and 1st super hero team that we can label as the Justice League or Avengers of the Philippines, and they are called Sanlakas team. ( that's Lastikman, Kapitan Boom, Tiny Tony, Dragonna, Varga and Flash Bomba in one super team).

Komiks Presents : Flash Bomba will start on February 7, Luis Manzano is added in the roster of the Komiks Presents super heroes as the deformed superhero "Flash Bomba"

After starring in one of ABS-CBN’s top-rating shows, Dyosa, as Kulas, Luis Manzano will soon breathe life to an over the top superhero on Komiks Presents Mars Ravelo’s Flash Bomba soon to air on ABS-CBN.

Luis Manzano earned positive feedbacks in his portrayal of Kulas in Dyosa. As he topbills Komiks Presents, Luis is very much ready for the demands of his newest series.

“This is my first time to play lead role. Medyo pressured ng onti but it really helps when people around you are very supportive,” Luis shared.

Tagged as the “Superhero for all Seasons”, Flash Bomba stars Luis Manzano as the famed crime fighter who loves the spotlight, hence the Superhero for all seasons tag (plus the fact that Luis is the son of the Star for all Seasons Ms. Vilma Santos-Recto). Flash Bomba is the last of the Ravelo superheroes which also completes the much-anticipated Isang Lakas super team.

Under the direction of Dondon Santos, Luis breathes life to the character of Roldan Legazpi, a rich guy who thinks that he can do anything as long as he puts his mind into it. Despite his physical disability which he got when he encountered an accident while he was in a hunting trip, he managed to study martial arts and made time for body building to strengthen his upper body. And because of the physical training he underwent, he eventually learns to walk with his hands.

Other members of the cast include Roxanne Guinoo, Sid Lucero, Lito Pimentel, Nanette Inventor, Alan Paule, Empoy and Ms. Rio Locsin.

Flash Bomba has large hands and large feet, and you know what they say about men with large hands and feet...So play up your imagination because after the fiery Dragonna, comes Flash Bomba, soon on ABS-CBN.

Chocolate Appreciation 101 at Heavenly Chocolates

http://images.popazrael.multiply.com/image/2/photos/703/500x500/45/P1240068.jpg?et=dC%2BDHxfcI%2C7%2B0riUfC8d0g&nmid=180518021

Heavenly Chocolates in Roces Ave, Q.C. just recently conducted a chocolate appreciation 101 and workshop to everyone, and its a free workshop about chocolates, know the wonders and the process of making chocolates, understand the types and the so called single origin chocolates. All of these are discussed and was shared by Benjamin Pedro of Heavenly Chocolates.

The workshop is conducted every month, and its a free workshop and chocolate tasting inside the choco cafe of Heavenly Chocolates. I remember that during my elementary days, we have this tree in our province behind the pig pen, and I didn't have the idea that it was a cacao tree, and the cacao tree produces this free, and the seeds is the main origin of our chocolates.(read more below)

http://images.popazrael.multiply.com/image/2/photos/703/500x500/13/P1240035.jpg?et=MQRJqnqGXo8%2B84Md60g%2CIA&nmid=180518021
There are process in making chocolates, and some choco manufacturers sometimes forgot or skip one important step that makes the chocolate more tastier and original. The fermentation of the cacao seed is one of the most important part of the process, but to others they just skip it and proceed into the pre-refining process.

In the tasting section of the workshop, I tried the Peru origin of chocolate and it tastes okay, but I love more on the Madagascar origin chocolate and it tastes like our Cadburry chocolate, the Ganash and Nama chocolate is one of the best seller in flavors of bitter sweet, strawberry, with champagne and rhum, and needs to be refrigerated properly, but when you swallow it, the chocolate will disentegrates immediately inside your mouth and you'll get an after taste that makes it very heavenly.

Chocolates are good anti-oxidants to body, others some say that the chocolates are aphrodisiacs, but for me its just a psychological effect that every time we eat choco., we will kinda feel a little hm....hot. hahaha. Chocolates has less sugar, and its perfect for those who are into diet.

And did you know that in early times, during the Mayans, they used chocolates as their currency, or it is some kind of their money in their years. So after the Spaniards came to their land, they traded stuff and chocolates, and this made history that chocolates spread through out the time and history of man.

i love chocolates! wow!

there will be upcoming workshops in the coming months.
so I suggest you guys visit the store and try their menu. Im now planning to visit the store next week and try this famous Chocolate Pasta.
