Hot news of the month!

What's that metallic object in my food?

metal<---- ano ito?

It happened last month when a friend treated to me a dinner and I'm excited to try this new restaurant owned by a celebrity and a sister company with another restaurant located in a popular mall in Mandaluyong City. The restaurant we dined in is located to this new mall, and I ordered my favorite meal right away to save more time for me and my friend to have a chat after ordering, then after some minutes the food came infront of our table, the waiters are very friendly and they prepared our food and fixed the table for us neatly and fast.

I got excited to eat my meal and I started munching the rice and beef and drink my ice tea and talk with my friend and enjoy it sobra, then 2 of my blogger friends arrived to meet us and we'll going to check out something in this new mall and go up together, I told them I'll finish my dinner and then we will proceed in our plans. I was shocked after hearing that news about these celebrity couple got in trouble during in a private bout and was rushed to a hospital, which started the rumor there and now it reaches our dinner table. I was busy listening to all the chats of my friends and then suddenly my teeth just chewed this hard thing along with the food inside my mouth, at first I think of it as a small bone of the beef or could be a small stone that comes along with the rice.

My mind registered and said that their rice is not properly clean and then my tongue tries to find the hard object and I avoided not to throw it out of my mouth to my plate infront of my friends, dyahe kasi sa kasama ko. So I tried to feel it again and my teeth caught it, and felt that it is not a bone or a stone, its a long metal thing.... (photo above is a scaled size version, reference only and not the real object that I got)

I got scared and then I throw it up out of my mouth and held it in my hand, and I saw a small and long metallic object that looks like a tip of a ballpen, but when I checked, it doesn't look like a head tip of a pen, its like a part of another object or that mechanical thing of a toy. I called on the waiter and my friends didn't know what's going on, and then I told them to get the manager and explain to me why there's a metal object in my meal, the waiter was shocked and told me to hang on and they will ask the chef and then I handed them the metal object to check where it came from or maybe a part of their interiors that falls off.

The waiter told me that the chef or cook got no idea where it came from, then I told them to check their food and inspect it carefully because this metal thing is dangerous if their customer swallowed it, I got lucky that I chewed my food first and this thing didn't end up in my stomach and it could bring me to a fatal intestinal wound. The waiter offered lots of things that night, and I lost my appetite to eat again and they offered to replace my meal, but my mood is gone and the waiter said that the food I ordered will not be included in our bill, they offered ice cream and lots of stuff, but I declined their offer.

I got an idea to sue them for it, but I decided not to, and told them to inspect their food supplier, because the metal thing might came from their rice supplier. The waiter agrees and I accepted their apology. I hope it will never happen again, but I will eat again there and enjoy my favorite meal on another day.

Same incident years ago, theres an unwanted object in my rice when we cooked it at home, it's a "watusi" sitting in the middle of the cooked rice (watusi = firecrackers) , it got cooked with it and we didn't know, until I complained of a watusi-like smell coming from the rice, I search for the cause and I just noticed the "watusi" bleeds with the rice and it smokes a foul smell. We got dizzy after wards and we drank milk in order to counter attack the poison in our body.

Project Igloo production note 5

I'm happy to post here that project igloo is going so smooth, and it took me almost a week to go back to my own self and after conceptualizing and doing new productive gimiks to energize my creative juices, it was hard to think of new promotional stuff. I'm running out of fresh ideas, and I really need to go out of the box or maybe do something more different. Project igloo has been umasked yesterday morning and the working title of the project was revealed in Facebook, and now the coming week will have more hard hitting promotion and an event to look out for next month.

I haven't heard from the Vice President of the company about his reviews of project igloo, but he's the one who makes my brain work well and do the deadline on time. I'm going to research and conceptualize more, because this is just the beginning and more exciting announcements will pop out here in my blog :)

De Niro, Norton Up for Acting Rematch in "Stone"

2010_stone_017
Overture Films' gripping dark drama "Stone," may not be an easy story for some audiences , but the nuanced tale was a draw for acting heavyweights Robert De Niro and Edward Norton.

"I always liked the script," De Niro said of "Stone," which deals with hypocrisy and guilt, and is set in the rapidly decaying environs of post-recession Detroit. "I thought the whole thing had an interesting tone and feel about it," the Oscar winner explained.

De Niro plays Jack Mabry, a prison parole officer just days from retirement who has to deal with the manipulative Gerald "Stone" Creeson as one of his final assignments.

"Easy A" -- A Funny Morality Tale for the Teen Crowd

Easy_A_Intl_DF-03188
On the heels of a little white lie about losing her virginity, clean-cut high schooler Olive finds that her new-found bad-girl rap has an upside: she is finally getting noticed. Olive decides to exploit her "easy" reputation and use the school rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing. But life starts to spin hilariously out of control, in Columbia Pictures' teen comedy “Easy A.”

The film stars Emma Stone (recently cast as Gwen Stacy in the “Spider-Man” 2012 reboot) as Olive, Penn Badgley (TV’s “Gossip Girl”), Amanda Bynes (“What a Girl Wants”), Cam Gigandet (“Twilight”) and Aly Michalka (TV’s “Hellcats”).

My photos of Manny Pacquaio in The Biography Channel Asia on Oct 27

P8110416
I got an email few weeks ago from Singapore and they are asking for permission to use some of my photos of Manny Pacquaio that I took in meeting him and coverage while in events, and I gave them a go signal to download and use some of it. They are filming and producing a 1 hour biography documentary on Manny Pacquaio that will be aired on October 27, 2010 on The Biography Channel Asia.

I was suppose to contribute some video footages and more photos but I didn't got the time to dig to my data bank and went busy for weeks, I'm glad that they selected some pics and it will be used for their film. But they emailed back and selected 3 photos in my flickr.

Last week, I just saw an episode of The Biography Channel when I was in Thunderbird Resorts Rizal, I watched a bio docu about Gwyneth Paltrow, there I saw that they use lots of photos of the person while they narrate the story and also interview some people. I'm really excited to see the photos I took on cable tv, hope someone can record it hehehe.

Action maestro Tony Scott presents his fifth film with Denzel Washington in the runaway train thriller “Unstoppable,” inspired by true events. Denzel describes the director as the hardest working person on set, while his co-star Chris Pine calls him “the magic movie elf”, a tightly wound ball of appropriately unstoppable energy.

Here, the British auteur explains the method behind his madness, and how his work was inspired by his mother.

WWF Asks Netizens to Save Lives with a Click

WWF Picture 5
A click of the mouse is all it takes - never has there been an easier way to save the Philippine marine environment, its creatures, and the food source that comes with it.

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF - Philippines) launched the “I Click, I Save” campaign last September 28. The campaign enables people with internet access – from anywhere in the world – to contribute in protecting our country’s marine biodiversity.

WWF – Philippines has marine conservation programs all over the country – from Tawi-Tawi in the south to Hamilo Coast and Donsol further up north. The project sites focus on environmental sustainability as a means to providing for local communities. To cite, WWF’s community-based ecotourism transformed Donsol’s economy, becoming a 1st class municipality by the end of 2009 from a 5th class municipality in 1998. TIME magazine named Donsol as one of Asia’s “Best Animal Encounters”. With this, job opportunities opened up, providing a sustainable source of income to locals like blast fishermen turned Butanding Interaction Officer (BIO) Guilbert “Embet” Guadamor.

Talented actress Eva Mendes (Hitch, Ghost Rider) joins the cast of Columbia Pictures' outrageous action comedy The Other Guys as Sheila, the wife of Will Ferrell’s bookish cop, Allen.

It was a great collaboration.”

Timberlake, a Conniving Friend in Facebook Movie "The Social Network"

SocialNetwork_JTimberlake_JEisenberg
Grammy-winner Justin Timberlake makes a breakthrough performance as an actor in Columbia Pictures' critically acclaimed drama The Social Network, the controversial film about the beginnings of social media megasite Facebook.

Timberlake plays Sean Parker, the smooth-talking Napster founder-turned-Facebook president who pulls Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg into his venture-capital-rich world while persuading the young upstart to bury his biggest investor, and friend, Eduardo Saverin.

Facebook Movie "The Social Network" Defines Our Time

DF-08229
Every age has its visionaries who leave, in the wake of their genius, a changed world – but rarely without a battle over exactly what happened and who was there at the moment of creation.

In Columbia Pictures’ The Social Network, director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin explore the moment at which Facebook, the most revolutionary social phenomenon of the new century, was invented -- through the warring perspectives of the super-smart young men who each claimed to be there at its inception.

One drunken night in October of 2003, having just broken up with his girlfriend, Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg hacks into the university’s computers to create a site that forms a database of all the women on campus, then lines up two pictures next to each other and asks the user to choose which is “hotter.” He calls the site Facemash, and it instantly goes viral, crashing the entire Harvard system and generating campus-wide controversy over the site’s purported misogyny, and charges that Mark, in creating Facemash, intentionally breached security, violated copyrights and violated individual privacy.

"The Social Network" Traces Controversial Origins of Facebook

DF-07284r
Columbia Pictures brings to the screen The Social Network, the controversial and acclaimed film detailing the Harvard dorm room origins of social media megasite Facebook -- the most revolutionary social phenomenon of the new century -- which is valued today at a staggering $16 billion.

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history. But for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.

Here's my entry for the 10-10-10 World Wide Moment, this is my 2nd time to join the World Wide Moment photo activity, last year's 9-9-9 entrt is very simple, but today's entry is very challenging because I'm outside and its hard to do a good concept for the 10-10-10 entry, But I stayed and do a touch move scenario when I took a photo of Lace inside a taxi when we are on the road to Greenbelt 3 to eat our dinner, It was a great concept for me, taking a photo of Lace and include the night light of Makati as the highlight background of the photo.

you can see the actual entry here at Photographs from 2010's Moment
we have our fellow pinoys joining the activity, see the Manila tag here and check out their entries

I took this photo at around 6:10pm, inline with the GMT time of 10:10am worldwide.

3422 (4) (Large)
(Wednesdays 8pm)
29 years old, overweight, and with an unfashionable name, Kim Sam-soon spots her boyfriend going into a hotel with another woman on Christmas Eve. Instead of dumping him there and then, Sam-soon begs him not to leave her, but to no avail. Not only had she lost her boyfriend, she had lost her job earlier in the day. Utterly distraught, Sam-soon runs into a restroom – the men's room – where she encounters Jin-heon who thinks she is a pervert. They part company on the worst of terms, not knowing their paths will cross again.

(premieres 15 October 2010, airs Fridays 8pm)
As the director of her father's advertising company, Ma Yu Hee (Han Ga In, Super Rookie) is known as a witch for being stern, ruthless, and no-nonsense. After a string of failed attempts to hire a housekeeper, she literally runs into Chae Moo Ryong (Jae Hee, Delightful Girl Choon Hyang), an ex-medical student-turned-aspiring chef. As a way to work off his debt for crashing into Yu Hee’s car, Moo Ryong agrees to become her housekeeper and personal relationships coach for a month. Gladly, he gives Yu Hee a makeover that turns her into the new-found love interest of her old friend Johnny Kruger (Dennis Oh, East of Eden) and her first love Joon Ha (Kim Jeong Hoon, Princess Hours). And despite being in a relationship with his girlfriend Seung Mi (Jun Hye Bin, The King and I), Moo Ryong eventually finds himself falling for Yu Hee as well...

My 10-10-10 moment is looking at my baby boy Ashton this morning when he wakes up, he's so jolly and got lots of energy to smile and play around, I wonder how babies get the energy to smile after they wake up in the morning?.. looking at my baby boy in the morning transfers that jolly moment at me, I just smile back, so cute!
