forgot to post my coverage of our viewing party of the season 13 premiere of
American Idol in Prive, a viewing party organized by Star World. I arrived at
the Prive club so early because I joined a carpool with my wife while on the way
home. But its okay to be early and tummy full because I need a lot of energy for
the viewing party and expect that there will be a lot of booze for everyone. As
expected, I spotted two-three media who arrived early too, and also the PR team
of Star World, it was so funny that we can’t go inside the club because they are
so strict and told us that the gate will open at 6pm. So we decided to sat down
outside the club and chat about their awesome giveaway to all present media
guest. Okay, I didn’t believe in the first place that they will give us an
Android tablet as token of appreciation of our attendance for the viewing party.
After some minutes, before the clock strikes to 6pm, the club manager
went outside and told us that we can go inside.
Tomorrow will be a good day to learn about blogging, thanks to Bob Reyes and his group - the Mozilla Philippine Community for inviting us to give a talk and share our expertise in blogging. I heard that most of the audience for tomorrow are composed of students, professionals from the tech community and also bloggers.

Grand Dame's chandeliers were lit red and gold to welcome the Lunar New Year
last January 31st.
The morning was greeted by the animated performers of the famous Lion and
Dragon dance as they dance to the vibrant beats of drums and cymbals. It is said
to sweep away bad luck and attracts good fortune to all people who watch it
dance. The Lion and Dragon dance were accompanied by a masked monk and fireworks
as per tradition.
The momentous tradition were held at the lobby to accommodate the guests and
public viewer for the Blessing of Hong Kong Based, Feng Shui Master Vittorio
another time of the year for Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo 2014,the party event
was held in SM Aura’s Samsung Hall last January 24, 2014, and as usual, the
place is packed with lots of party people, musicians, and also bottles of
The mixing of music and also mixing of Hennessy with your
selected flavored drink happened again in one venue, the event was supposed to
be last November 2013, but the organizers postponed the party event to lend a
hand for the relief effort of #YolandaPH.
I went there with my blogger
friends and for me, this is the best Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo event ever!
friends at BPI marketing team invited us for a meeting over coffee and snacks in
their BPI office, I’m a bit clueless on what’s the meeting all about, but I
suspect in the first place that they might be sharing some new info about their
BPI bank here in the Philippines.
latest IMAX Theater that we have here in the Philippines is now in SM Megamall.
A lot of SM Megamall fans are so happy when I posted an Instagram about the
launch of IMAX Theater in SM Megamall, so there’s no more plan in going to SM
MOA and SM North EDSA, because the mid city of Manila got its own IMAX
didn’t expected that SM Bowling Center will have new revamp too, just like the
SM Ice Skating Rink in SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall, both leisure activity
center for bowling and ice skating is located at the new building, but the SM
Bowling Center is located at the 4th level of the Mega Fashion Hall.
old bowling center which is located at the basement of Bldg A resides next to SM
Megamall’s admin office, but I think it was removed too during the year 2009
together with the SM Ice Skating to expand the Toy Kingdom store and also
accommodate more space for the event center at the basement of SM Megamall.
SM Ice Skating Rink is back to its original home in SM Megamall, today its
located at the 5th floor of SM Megamall’s new building – Mega Fashion Hall also
known as Mega Bldg D. Back in 1992 we tasted the first ever winter wonderland
inside the ground floor of SM Megamall, the ice skating back then was our first
ever and then followed by two more branches in other SM Supermalls.
The 1st trailer for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction was supposed to aired during the presentation of a new TV with Michael Bay as one of the presenter at CES 2014 event, but it didn’t happen because of that wonky teleprompter that left director Michael Bay clueless and then he walked out just to save himself from embarrassment, now I know what I would do if ever my powerpoint goes wonky during my presentation hahaha.
The trailer was shown today via Youtube by Paramount Pictures and it was a great breakfast moment for me because it gave me a big WOW and OMG reaction while I sip my hot coffee and watch the trailer online. That's one awesome Geekgasm moment after a month watching the The Hobbit 2.
I'm excited super!!! and this movie will air this mid 2014 in all theaters, my big guess is on June 2014.
We also saw some Transformers bots in the trailer, some are familiar and others are new…okay, I’m not a TF expert but I did a quick research and I finally identified the names of the Transformers Autobot and Decepticon bots who teased us a little action for this 4th installment.
was invited to attend the press conference for the Dream K-Pop Fantasy
Concert 2 at the Crowne Plaza Manila yesterday where up and coming
Korean boybands A-Jax and Block-B geared up
for a short interview.
It was obvious both bands were nervous but excited to perform along with
Super Junior M, A-Prince.
BtoB, and BAP at the Smart Araneta
Coliseum later tonight. It will be, after all, their first time
performing in the country and for quite a large crowd.
Fans from all over the country, and other countries as well, are reported to
be attending tonight’s concert.
