My 10 note review of Deathly Hallows part 1 movie

2010_hp7_i_041
yup, you know what will happen here....

1. Movie length is around 2 1/2 hours
2. Harry Potter takes off his shirt many times, now you know.
3. Much better to watch it in IMAX than in 3D digital
4. Voldemort hunts Harry, while Harry hunts the Horcruxes
5. Lots of drama, more story development on the way
6. Don't sleep, you might miss something, or else, read the novel
7. More magic and spells
8. I saw Voldemort two times only in this movie, but Harry strips for the 2nd time
9. Dont watch this if you haven't seen or read "Half-blood prince
10. more Hermione!

my movie rating : 4 for the excitement of Deathly Hallows
3 for the lovers quarrel
and 4/5 for part 1 ending

Seattle's Best Coffee barista knows our name

PB189755
Here's another addition to my barista story, we ordered some food and drinks at Seattle's Best Coffee in Tektike bldg, we took a coffee break there after our busy day in hospital and dentist hopping. Lace ordered a java chip drink for me, and then after some minutes the barista calls Lace's name and then I discovered that my drinking cup has no name written on it. Amazing!
next time, I'll try my own name.

5th Toys and Collectibles Christmas Fair 2010 production note 2

Nokiac30277
I can't believe that this is my 2nd production note for the event, Im so busy the past month and weeks and here I am in my 2nd meeting for the event. I missed so many meetings and because that I was out of town always, but I'm glad that I hear that we are nearly closing our booths for the toycon, but we still have some space for mommy booths that will be organized by Mommy Mundo. I think we have around 100 booth exhibitors for this event, and while I finished the event poster, I learned that our official title is - The 5th Christmas Toy Fair and Mom's Holiday Finds. Its a fusion of two different fair for the holidays.

There will be booth sales, auction, story telling, magic show, donation drive, cosplay, live movie viewing and many more. And for now, I will revise the poster that I designed and will prepare it before the main deadline on Sunday.

my coverage: Department of Tourism "Pilipinas Kay Ganda" launching

PB159427
Here's my coverage of the Pilipinas Kay Ganda launching. The event was held in Oceana, San Miguel by the bay, SM Mall of Asia complex. The event was attended by city officials, tourism organizations, media, press, bloggers and our Vice President Binay. This is to launch the new slogan and brand of our Philippines that will be use in marketing it to other countries by our Department of Tourism. Let's bid farewell to "Wow Philippines" and let's welcome "Pilipinas Kay Ganda!"

PB159362 PB159378
I got a short talk with our DOT secretary Alberto Lim and his Usec. Vicente R. Romano III after the big unveiling, Sec. Lim asked me if I like the idea and if it is beautiful, I replied that we will support it and we are here to support it. Honestly, I didnt like it in the first place as the slogan was released via the internet but then after hearing sec. Lim's speech and Usec. Vicente R. Romano III , I finally understand what they want to deliver and show, I know its hard to market it, but I know it will work due to their study, research and survey, and as other countries used their own native tongue in describing their own land.

"This new brand addresses the two topmost considerations of tourists all over the world intheir choices of destination - the beautiful scenery and the warmth of the people" - Romano

"That's why I'd like to invite all of you to join hands and rally behind the brand we are about to reveal. Together, let's make the brand not only believable, but also real. After all, no one can argue that our motherland is beautiful, And its the only one we have" - Lim

I met yesterday some people from Yahoo! and they told us about the upcoming release of the new Yahoo! Mail beta and Yahoo! Messenger beta, It was a long wait for a new upgrade and it is the right time to release a new version of Yahoo! Mail and Messenger. And from the opening talk, I just learned that social networking just embraced our beloved Yahoo! Mail and Messenger, not only social networking but also games. The first thing they showed us is that Yahoo! Mail beta is 2x faster than any web mail providers and this is the new version, much more advance and upgraded. But let me list down the new features and useful tools of Yahoo! Mail and Messenger beta, which was released today as a beta. (more story below)

MOVIES: Matt Dillon as a multi tasking cop in Takers

2010_takers_025
His searing performance as a racist officer in the Oscar-winning “Crash” earned Matt Dillon an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. In Columbia Pictures' new action-thriller “Takers,” Dillon plays another cop but of an entirely different mold.

“No, he’s not like the guy in `Crash' at all. Although if you are going to play a cop, I would prefer to play one who is messed up!,” he laughs. “What I mean is, I prefer to play a character who is human, with flaws. Mostly in movies, criminals are more interesting than cops but in the case of `Takers,' the character is as interesting as the bad guys. He’s got flaws and I like that. He’s divorced, he’s got a daughter, and he’s an adrenaline junkie who is very caught up in his work.”
“There’s a sequence in the film where he’s taking his daughter to a museum on his day off but then he gets some information about a guy that they’ve been looking for and he ends up going on a stakeout with his daughter. He ends up chasing this guy down the street with his daughter sitting in the car, with her colouring book, next to him.
