Our Valentine's Day celebration at home + a video blog

Valentine's Day at home photo by Azrael Coladilla
We did our own celebration of Valentine's Day here at home, its no longer a surprise for my wife, because she's always waiting for it and reminds me of that surprise, but instead of making another gimmick, we decided to stay home and she cook lasagna for dinner. I went to SM Bacoor that day and bought flowers, cakes and brownies,  I also bought a non alcoholic wine, but then I didn't know that  Lace's sister also bought the same wine hahahaha.

Here's our set up at home, just a simple celebration, this way, we can show to our son Ashton, about the day of loving. We're adding this celebration every year in our family. In my life, I don't usually celebrate or join in any Valentine's day celebration.

Gadget makes you smile this Valentines Day, let's spread love!

We know that gadgets and electronic majigajig are already important to our life, from laptop to smartphones, tablets and those tablet cases with weird designs. We learn already on how to adapt with technology and every now and then, the tech upgrades so fast and it makes our life much more convenient. Its weird that everyone wants to receive gadgets as gift every Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or just a thank you gift, others reward themselves with a nice quad core Android tablet, while others give the latest iPad with the highest HD size to their loved ones. I'm sure you are already dreaming the next gadget you want to have, if ever I got the budget, I'll buy one tablet for my wife, heading to the nearest SM Cyberzone your  makes me not worry, because everything is in there and all my gadget needs are housed in one location.

I'm now starting my own project, I need to award my wife a nice tablet or smartphone, she needs it in surfing the net, reading those ebooks, watching videos and also for communication. If ever Valentines Day is next month, I'll give it a shot, but for me.. everyday is Valentines Day.

Happy Valentines Day...let's stay connected this Valentines Day

Cyberzone your tech connection!

Olympus EPL 5 now available here in the Philippines

  
Its a big distraction to me and I stopped working for a minute when I got an info that Olympus EPL5 is already available here in the Philippines, and online seller in Multiply is the 1st to carry it, I'm not sure if this was released already in our local market, like in the Photoworld event were Olympus have a booth, I didn't got the time to visit it, but I'm sure they showed it there. I visit SM Appliance store and some camera stores and still we haven't found the Olympus EPL5 micro four third camera, this version have the same sensor of the Olympus OMD EM5, it works the same, minus the weight and also weather sealed body. I now target to buy this and it resembles the good Olympus EPL2 with a grip holder and a faster sensor and focusing.

DBgadgets is now selling this online for Php 28,200 with 14-42mm lens and then Php 32,000 dual lens 14-42mm lens and 40-150mm lens

Its my first time here in Murray’s New Orleans Burboun Street Steaks and Oyster restaurant and I didn’t expected that I’ll enjoy their drinks, food and entertainment. I tried their old branches years ago and I love the steaks and other food that they serve, but few nights ago, I got re-introduced to their new gimmick and also a new menu for us to enjoy.


Megarita nights at New Orleans restaurant photo by Azrael Coladilla of Azrael's Merryland Blog
When I learned that they already have a branch in SM MOA, I started to list this as one of my must hang out place at night, especially when I need to relax and enjoy great food and entertainment, this will be a perfect venue for leisure and relaxation, I know that spa and massage satisfy me already, but my tummy needs more loving and I need to stuffed it with food and booze from Murray’s New Orleans Burboun Street Steaks and Oyster restaurant.

It’s a long title for a restaurant baring the real deal city - New Orleans, Louisiana, in which were the restaurateur Murray Hertz came from and founded this resto since 1985. The restaurant we have here is a tie up with award winning restaurateur Raymund Magdaluyo, Celebrity Chef Peter Payson and NEw Orleans' original consultant Murray Hertz. The trio help together to put up "Murray's New Orleans BOurbons Street Steaks and Oysters.

The restaurant serves Cajun and Creole inspired dishes,its a bit exotic and tasty dishes and it is now enjoyed not only by foreigners but also by pinoys.

Our night started off with this Php299 giant margarita drink, they call it the MEGARITA


Megarita nights at New Orleans restaurant photo by Azrael Coladilla of Azrael's Merryland Blog
I’m not a fan of this drink, but I started to love it after trying this drink. The salt around the rim erases the after taste if you are a power drinker and eater. After the salt, you’ll want more drinks and food.


Megarita nights at New Orleans restaurant photo by Azrael Coladilla of Azrael's Merryland Blog
Its big and its like a margarita drink on a fish bowl, I’m sure the ladies will love this.


Megarita nights at New Orleans restaurant photo by Azrael Coladilla of Azrael's Merryland Blog
They also have many flavors that you can choose.


Megarita nights at New Orleans restaurant photo by Azrael Coladilla of Azrael's Merryland Blog
Php 299 only and if you buy two Megarita, you can pay only Php500.

Bar tender prepares our Megarita. I suggest you order this right away, because its like ordering a drink from Starbucks, the mix and blending takes too long if many people ordered it.

Murray’s New Orleans also brings a Mardi Gras inspired entertainment, there’s dancing, singing and even dancing waitress, more pics and story below.

It’s more fun to drink a Megarita with your friends, its too big for me and after drinking all those liquid, the icy margarita melted and then turned into liquid, making my Megarita a bottomless drink.


And here are the food from Murray’s New Orleans

The night is still young and our drinks are not yet done. We were told to stay in our seats and enjoy the show, because we’re going to watch the MARDIGRETTES.

Sounds like Marionettes, but this one is different. Murray’s New Orleans added some entertainment for their customers and they invited their waitress, staff and bar helper to be part of this girl group produced by Murray’s New Orleans. The girls went to a 6 month training and scholarship at FTX Gym and trained by Ed Aniel of Pole Academy Philippines. The hard work and training results to an artsy and sexy performance. Not the bastos dancing, but its more wow and entertaining dance moves by the Mardigrettes.

featuring: Mara the receptionist,, Jona the bar maid,Gella the cashier, and Jersey the server.
The Maridgrettes can be seen live three times a week here in Murray’s New Orleans.

If you are at SM MOA during Fridays, drop by there at night to see them live!
Or in Newport during Tues night, Rob Magnolia during Thurs night.

There’s also this bar tender doing a flame flair exhibition, they light up the bar with flame and then the barista will juggle those bottle with flames. I call it molotov flairing haha.

It’s a scary exhibition and I suggest you stay away from the bar during this performance

I ended my night at around 11pm and decided to go home, it’s a long way home and my belly might exploded for drinking too much, I haven’t finished my Megarita because the ice melted and its still tasty.
