I super love Christmas! because all toy stores are on sale and bagsakan lahat ng price yung ibang toys.. It was a tough decision for me to buy this, but for a super sale price of P200 each, its hard to resist. eehehhee. Sorry Power Combiners, I'll comeback for you after Christmas. The long wait is that, hope they can change the price tag of that Mighty Muggs Shockwave.

Here's my panorama view inside and outside the new store of Toy Kingdom in SM Megamall. Located now at the basement level of Mega A, near the event center and at the former place of the bowling center. I think this TK branch is the biggest toy store in the Philippines. Let's see how will Toys R US reacts after they pops more branches like in Shangri La Mall and Glorietta.

Spider-man stage musical accident


I just saw the news earlier on TV and its a very sad news.. I'm glad that the stunt double actor is okay and now recovering in the hospital. Its a scary freak accident, when the actor's rope snapped and he fell from a 30 foot high platform.
NEW YORK – Actors in Broadway's troubled "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" were back in rehearsal Wednesday afternoon, an indication that the show will likely go on despite a stunt double's serious injury from a 30-foot plunge into a stage pit.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2010 encore performance in Velvet Channel

I missed this show and will note myself by blogging this awesome show here in my blog.



The angels are back...the Victoria's Secret angels, that is, as they take to the runway in the latest incarnation of the much-awaited "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show." Uber-hot supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima lead the angels this year, as they strut their stuff on the famed V-shaped stage to the music of hot musical acts Akon and Katy Perry. Manila gets to witness the sexiest show of the year again with its encore performances on December 25 (Saturday) at 5 p.m., December 31 (Friday) at 11:00 p.m. and January 1 (Saturday) at 5:00p.m.  when it premieres on Saturday, December 18 at 10:00pm, exclusively on Velvet (Sky Cable channel 53).

While Heidi Klum may have retired her angel's wings, a new crop of beautiful models don the three sexy collections - Tough Love, Heavenly Bodies and Wild Things - from the popular lingerie brand. Rounding up the fit and fabulous list, along with Lima and Ambrosio, this year are models Behati Prinsloo, Chanel Iman, Lily Aldridge, Candice SwanePoel, Erin Heatherton and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (who is set to appear in the third Transformers film coming out next year).

Jollibee Kids Meal toys - Tom & Jerry and Lizzie McGuire

Brace yourselves as we welcome the New Year with the biggest bang as Avant Artists and Driven Manila combine to bring you the most exciting “First Big Party” of 2011.

Performing for the first time in Manila is Grammy-nominated producer and DJ Bob Sinclar, the musical genius behind groundbreaking tracks such as Love Generation, World, Hold On, Lala Song, and his new chart-topping hit, Tik Tok featuring Sean Paul.

Sinclar (born Christophe Le Friant) first started in 1986 when he was 17 years old, specializing in funk and hip-hop music as a DJ. His first club hit was Gym Tonic, which was co-produced by Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk.

In 2005, he scored with the hit single Love Generation that became one of the official anthems for the 2006 World Cup. His follow-up hit, World, Hold On, featured Steve Edwards and topped Billboard Magazine as the Number One Hot Dance Club Play Single.

The “First Big Party” headlined by Bob Sinclar is slated on January 15, 2011 at the World Trade Center. This electrifying event is made possible by Avant Artists and Driven Manila, joining forces to bring you the country’s most premiere dance parties.

As the first of an annual event, the “First Big Party” aims to set the record as the biggest exclusive dance party to be held in the country with trendsetting, state-of-the-art elements designed to raise your party experience to new heights. Avant Artists and Driven Manila invite you to be part of history as they transform the country into Asia’s new nightlife capital.

“First Big Party.” Because the first always matters.

Tickets are available at TicketNet and TicketWorld. A portion of the proceeds will help safeguard the Filipino child’s right to be a child in partnership with KIDS Foundation, Inc.

It's pulpy, healthy and orange

Minute Maid
I first encounter Minute Maid during a video blog contest few years ago and I won 1st place in that video blog contest and took home a big Toshiba LCD TV worth 45k , it was the 1st LCD tv in my life and then I saw this big rack on the side of the event hall a stack of small bottles of Minute Maid drink, it says on the label that the drink has real pulpy orange, I grabbed one and kept a bottle in my bag, and then suddenly everyone grabbed all bottles and then Iwent home with one bottle. Then the next morning, I open one ice cold bottle of Minute Maid, fresh from the fridge, and it's my first time to taste it and my eyes went big and my throat become comfy and my taste buds loves the taste and the pulpy-soft-moist of orange bits, Then I told my girlfriend to taste it and then we went to the grocery on the next day and bought the biggest bottle and added Minute Maid in our monthly supply of drinks.

check my story last summer 2009 about how to Beat the heat

Then I discovered that Minute Maid Pulpy Orange has no preservatives and its a perfect juice drink for people who wants to stay healthy and needs more real fruits in their body. I always drink every morning and during my snack time in the afternoon. The pulp bits gives a relaxing feeling for me and I drink it because I want to be healthy, with the busy sched in my life, I sometimes don't have the time to eat fruits, so whenever I'm on the go, I always grab a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy Orange and hit the road, then drink a fruit juice on hand without any hassle. I super enjoyed it and I make sure I have stocks of it at home.

Watch here for announcement of an upcoming contest that you can win some cash

my lunar eclipse photos featured on TV and online

a a PC228398
My photos of the Dec. 21, 2010 partial lunar eclipse was featured on TV awhile ago in QTV's News on Q. They contacted me on my phone earlier and informed me that my photos will be included in their lunar eclipse photo feature in the news. I gave them a go signal to use my photos and saw the airing of the news hours ago on QTV.

here's the video | yun nga lang they posted a wrong spelling of my name

My photos are also featured at SpaceWeather.com and Erika Valdueza's The Sky Above blog
It is also featured in the front website of Phlippine Astronomical Society

btw, the photo of the moon above was taken at around 8pm today December 22, 2010. I used my Olympus E520 dslr with 150mm zoom lens

check my photo coverage: Partial Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010 (Philippines)

My set up taking photos of the partial lunar eclipse

Nokiac30380
Here's my set up awhile ago during my partial lunar eclipse observation. Its my first time to place a set up in the terrace of another house (we will be moving here soon), and I love the view here and I can see the skyline and also the flow of the wind is nice. I think this spot will be my observation venue for any astronomical events. I sometimes shoot here for clouds and stars. hmm placing a couch and a coffee maker nearby will be great.

On photo: my Acer Aspire 4741Z laptop and Olympus E520 with 150mm zoom lens mounted on a cheap CDR King tripod.I took this photo using my Nokia C3.

siguro mas ok if I purchase a telescope na.
hmmm.

photo coverage: Partial Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010 (Philippines)

a PC218051
Its hard to observe the partial lunar eclipse today and it's cloudy here in my location in Cavite, Philippines and been waiting till the sky clears and let the strong winds move the big clouds, I was waiting for the moon to show up during our sunset, I started to loose hope in seeing the moon and then after the sun's ray goes out of the sky, a big orange moon showed up from nowhere and the appearance of the moon is a split seconds. I took this first photo at around 5:40pm and I'm already late for the start of the partial lunar eclipse. At first I'm not sure if that's a cloud or the shadow of the Earth, then I researched and saw some photos of our local astronomers, they too got the same photo and observation.

Get ready for another Partial Lunar Eclipse on December 21, 2010 (Philippines)

I got reminded of this global natural event with blogger Earth posted a plurk last week about a Lunar Eclipse that will happen on December 21, 2010. And then I remember it again and searched for some info about this eclipse event online. Then I read some news at http://www.buzzstation.net/2010/12/total-lunar-eclipse-december-21-2010.html

that the event will happen on December 21 here in the Philippines as a partial lunar eclipse. The shadow of the Earth will be visible covering a small portion of the moon, it is also similar to this event that I covered last 2009 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse ( February 9, 2009) ( Manila, Philippines)

I checked the moon last night and started to calibrate my camera and also prepare my gears

a PC207955
this is the photo from last night at 6:30pm

a PC218036
but I checked the skyline at 4pm today December 21 and saw a cloudy skies, Im hoping that the clouds will be gone before the start of the eclipse at around P5:16pm. The event will end at around P6:15pm. That's only an hour lunar eclipse.

Let's watch the skies today and see the shadow of our Earth in the face of the moon.

accdg. to John Nassr, a Baguio based astronomer and member of Phil. Astro Society - "The moon will be 50% eclipsed when it rises in the NE tomorrow evening, Dec 21."

update:
5:30pm - its cloudy and the moon is not visible,but try here to watch the live stream of the lunar eclipse, from coca cola space sci center - http://www.ccssc.org/webcast.html

you can also watch an animated presentation on how the lunar eclipse will appear today , check - http://www.shadowandsubstance.com/
