11 minutes to tie the knot

azlace2010
I just realized that it took only 11 minutes of our time to finish this and tie the knot. I remember Paulo Coelho's 2003 novel "11minutes" that the character Maria's life revolves only in 11 minutes in making love. If you read that book, you know what I mean, but here in our story, 11 minutes is very different.

next year it will be a more bongga celebration. pramis.

I'm ready for the TIMBALAND Shock Value II Manila Tour concert

P3254621
I got my VIP tickets already, and one lucky Justin Timberlake fan will join with me at the VIP area tomorrow night (just like what we did in the Paramore concert).

I also received a phone call that I'm invited to interview Jojo tomorrow, I hope that Justin will be there too to join with us 8 hours before the main event.

thanks to Blog Bank for sponsoring my ticket and also to our tickets promo giveaway here in my blog.

Chris Tiu and Lexi Shulze take the lead in the collective call to _Help Fight HPV._ pix2
According to US data, HPV or human papillomavirus is the most common sexually transmitted infection. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 50% of sexually active males and females will be infected with HPV at some point in their lives. While most infections clear on their own, depending on the virus type, some infections can cause HPV-related cancers while other types cause genital warts. Many people with HPV do not show signs or symptoms and they pass on the virus unknowingly.

The final Alice in Wonderland pocket watch goes to our last blog contest winner

Pocket Watch - lo-res
photo lifted from my blog post contest

The last Alice in Wonderland pocket watch goes to Ria Tirazona aka yapatoots.blogspot.com

her winning entry:
my favorite part of the movie was towards the end when Alice told her suitor and her sisters cheating husband to, in kinder words, shove it :-) not only did she turn down his proposal, she made me smile when she turned back as she was walking away and danced the jig that the mad hatter did before she left the underland.

i like how she broke away from societal expectations and showed that it is okay for women to be strong and empowered. i like too how she got up on that ship and sailed away as a partner of her fathers former business associate. these scenes reminded me that it is important to stand up for what you believe in despite and in spite the rules that limit, bind and constrict you. As long as you are doing what is right, go believe in the impossible, right? :-)

thanks so much everyone for joining in our contest, we will have more contest and giveaway of limited edition movie merchandises and props in the future. It was hard to judge and select the finalist, and thanks to our movie PR for helping me get an official winner. Entries were selected and judged it, and not revealing the names of the contest participants.

Ben Cabrera paintings - lost and missing by Fed Ex

This is a shocking news and very depressing to know that 2 paintings by Ben Cab was missing or maybe stolen while it was picked up and secured bty Fed Ex. Arvin our art/culture blogger reported this in his blog via a post from Lopez Museum. The paintings was about to ship from L.A. to Singapore. If you know anything about the paintings that is being sold elsewhere, pls report it.

here's a snippet of the letter from the art gallery

-------------------------
March 8, 2010

Dear Ben,
 
I cannot even start to tell you how genuinely sorry and mortified I am to be writing you this letter.

After two weeks of back and forth, I finally received notification from Fed Ex, instructing AndrewShire Gallery to formally proceed with a claim against the company, since they had failed to locate the two paintings that were shipped via Fed Ex from the Gallery in Los Angeles, to Singapore.

The irony of course is that Fed Ex picked up the paintings, carefully wrapped and package-sealed in a tube, at the Gallery in Los Angeles on February 26, and delivered an empty tube to me in Singapore on March 8, with the cover having been carefully sawn off, but with my address and details clearly stamped on the tube.

 
I have already filed a police report in Singapore, and it is my earnest hope that their investigation will reveal the details that Fed Ex is withholding from me –

March 27 Talk at Lopez Museum

Beneath the Image: A Technical Analysis of Sample Works of Fernando Amorsolo by Ricky Francisco
March 27, 2010, Saturday, 2-4 pm
Fee: Php120.00
Contact Person: Fanny San Pedro/Jane Pagkalinawan
Contact Details: 6312417/admin@lopez-museum.org/pezseum@skyinet.net

Contrary to the belief that science and art are on opposite poles, both fields do come together to generate new knowledge. In the context of a museum such as the Lopez Memorial Museum, the coming together of science and art is in the work of conservation. Another is in technical analysis of artworks. On March 27, Saturday, 2-4 pm, a lecture on a preliminary technical analysis of the works of Fernando Amorsolo will be given by Ricky Francisco, collections management consultant of the Lopez Memorial Museum. The lecture will go into the process of technical analysis and the findings. There is a fee of Php120.00 to attend this lecture.

As collections management consultant and during his internship at the NHB in Singapore, Mr Francisco undertook this using data found in Philippine art history books, and detailed visual examination of the works using the naked eye and equipment such as stereomicroscope, UV and Infrared Photography, of the measurable properties of sample works. By these means, he was able to gain a better understanding of the artist and his techniques.

The Lopez Memorial Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8am-5pm, except holidays. For more information, call 6312417 or email admin@lopez-museum.org or pezseum@skyinet.net. You may also go to the museum's website www.lopez-museum.org and its blog www.pezseum.blogpost.com for information.

Winners - Week 1 and 2 of Nokia OVI Must Try Discoveries Contest

The winners are:
Week 1 - Must-try food/dining
Winner : Lowell Aguirre "Z crepe at Zaibatsu Cafe"

It's time for you to give the Z crepe a try...it's not nearly as expensive and boring as they think a crepe is! And to make your first time more memorable, be sure to try Zaibatsu Cafe's Zai Crepes!
It's a dessert that delights the eye, and tastes delicious too. A blend of whole cherries accented with chocolates and other sweets, folded into a light crepe, covered with whipped creme, for a lush creation that you'll sure to love.   Zaibatsu Cafe chose their name, as they felt it embraced the vision they had for their own lives, ... bursting with energy, always moving, full of life and life giving (love their fantabulous ceiling!). They have tons of mouth-watering appetizers but my own personal favorite is the Zai Crepes!

Here's a tip from them,
If you want to get lucky in the next year, try this simple plan, cook up a crepe in your frying pan (oh they won't give you their secret recipe). Hold a coin in your left hand, and then, flip the crepe up into the air with your right. If it lands safely back in the pan - the money will come pouring in throughout the rest of the year. Try this! :D



Week 2 - Must-visit travel destination
Winner: Jeremiah T. Carlos "Coron, Palawan"
 Coron, Palawan! This place offers the ideal island get-away! White, sandy beaches, freshwater lakes, hidden coves, breathtaking scenery and abundant marine life. What more can you ask for?

Congratulations to our winners!

me with my funny boy scout hair cut inside Abenson, Shangri La mall, trying out that LG 3D TV

It's Sunday today and this should be my rest day, but it turns out that my work day will invade my regular rest weekend. I have lots of backlogs of coverages, video blogs, blog post and promotional stuff for my blog and will update and post it one by one later and have it set to scheduled post. I want to rest more and maybe visit a spa, watch movie, eat in a nice restaurant, and sleep.

I'm still figuring out these freebies in my room and will give it in an upcoming contest, remember that we still have that Nokia OVI contest running and we have 3 weeks of contest, the Alice in Wonderland pocket watch is still hot and the contest is ongoing, free tickets to Timbaland concert is up for grabs if you also join my blog contest, more more blog activities coming and I'm excited for another transformation of this blog. I'm still having a big hang over of that Neil Gaiman visit in Manila year 3.

Events invites are coming from left to right, and you can see that I'm trying my very best to attend all of it, but my body always fails to wake up early in the morning and I realized that my body should rest for awhile. I love going back to the beach, I'm waiting for future invitation of beach resort events or maybe a nice trip away from our technology hehhe.

Kasal, Sakali, saklolo, omg. the coming week will be another turn of events in my life. I'm looking forward for another over night stay in a nice hotel with pool.

Hanging out with online friends is great! hope to organize a meet up with everyone soon that involves resting, eating, laughing and bonding without the need to blog it eheehe. (i can't force myself but will blog it too)

more fun this coming week! promise!
do check out our ongoing promos and hey! SM Marikina has their last day of sale today, and SM Taytay will have their own 3 day sale, do check out their blog site and Facebook.
