Serving double wifi with cheese


Last night is a eat out and surfing at Burger King in SM Mall of Asia, all branches of Burger King is now offering free Wifi access, last time they require you to dine in and they will give you the password for the access of the wireless internet connection, but then after months of the free service they no longer require the password and you can just connect and surf while you eat your favorite burger. Also they have a free cellphone charging docks in the wall area and also a free DVD screening of you favorite movie, last night is an action movie starring Mark Wahlberg, I don't know what's the title but I enjoy it while I munched my double cheese burger while Lace is on high with her chicken torpedo like sandwich.

After the meal, its internet time for us, I brought Lace's Asus EEEpc, its effective for her but not for me, I got this big fingers and Im having a hard time using it and typing the web urls.

the wifi speed in SM MOA is great, compare to the busy branches in Glorietta. Also they provide electric plug under your seat.

3 days ago, I went to Robinsons Manila, Midtown Wing and did a short market watch, here are some stuff that I might be getting next month when I come back.


there's this Gorilla-Pod look a like that I saw in one of the tech-gadget store, it cost at around P545, and they have 3 kinds of Gorilla Pod look a like, I think the tripod for camera are not the official item that we saw on the net, but it looks useful and I'm getting one. Other gorilla pod cost at around 1ooo up.


On the same store, I saw this Fujifilm XD memory card, at last in 1 GB, its too difficult to find these high memory cards especially XD, because only few of them are being used and it is made for our Olympus digital camera, well its a good item rather than I buy those unbranded sucky memory cards sold in other malls, (I'm mad because they don't have a China made XD card ). This 1 GB XD card cost at around P1700.


there's a Toys R US store in Midtown Wing, and I'm a late boomer for gashapon capsule toys, all you have to do is purchase a P50 token and you can insert it in the Yujin branded capsule dispenser and then a capsule will fall down containing a toy, I just bought a Transformers movie capsule toy few months ago and it looks cute!, then I saw a Neon Genesis Evangelion capsule toys featuring the human characters and the EVA robots, I might try and buy one later if the toy is available in Megamall, hope to get a lingerie ver of Asuka Langley and Rei Ayanami hahahah.



Batman Lego are back in our toy store's shelves and I was surprised that this toy is very pricey, I'm now dreaming to have one and also the Star Wars Lego toys, they are cute and I don't think how will I assemble them, Its around pricey than Transformers and Zoids, been planning to go back to Zoids again because one big Zoids will cost at only P1k, while Batman and Star Wars Lego will go at around P1k plus up to P6k, depends on the toy line and series of Lego.

Saw this Laptop Pillow or cushion, forgot what it is called, at a price of hmm I'll take a guess P2k? just correct me if I'm wrong on the price, I'm still thinking if I need this item at home, well its a perfect gift item to someone you know who uses laptop, but hmmmm.. I'm just wondering on how will they prevent the laptop overheating under it.

http://www.trustedreviews.com/images/article/inline/4262-02.jpg
I forgot the price of this bag for your laptop convertible into a laptop sleeve. Looks cute and very useful, but I'm afraid that I have this were will I put my plug and mouse?, and my other stuff. Well this bag only good for one laptop it will be a good storage for your laptop at home whenever you left it and prevent it to have dust.

that's all for our blog post for today, just write some about it here because I'm waiting for our domain provider's website to be back again and it left me in a big space at home waiting, I need to upload new files for our comic artists web pages.

My review : Star Wars according to a 3 year old



she's so cute! as a Star Wars fan I'l be blogging this youtube video and since that I'm avoiding to view it weeks ago, didn't know that it was very amusing hahahahaa.

Didn't realized that Luke Skywalker practice his light saber with a Pokemon ball hahahah.

Obi Wan? hmm sometimes he disappear? yeah, got encountered this kind of reaction.

Definitely cute and adorable. I'm starting to see her as a future geeky Paris-Lohan person
minus the video scandal and DUI.

That's only episode 4, are we seeing other future episodes ??
any one can do a Lord of The Rings according to a 40 year old ?

Badguy virus-worm in my inbox

[bad+guy+spammer.JPG]

[bad+guy+spammer+2.JPG]

[bad+guy+spammer+3.JPG]

There's this virus or worm repeatedly sending attachments of WMV video files in my inbox and I keep on deleting them and filtering them out of my inbox, but too bad that Gmail has no delete forever or block feature to kick these email virus in sending malicious files to me.

It sends over and over again and it looks like that it wants to be opened.

the email sender is from no.1badguy, using a yahoo! email and I researched on its profile that the email is created last 2006, I'm very scared of this virus, and it might flood my email capacity.

if there's anyone here got the same experience, post a comment below and i need complete removal or any information about this virus.

beware and be cautious in opening file attachments or email from people you don't know.
I'm glad that i didn't open it. and perhaps someone is trying to hack my gmail address again.

so as of now,im deleting it in my trash manually, even if the filter feature has a move to trash auto delete.

I think the virus - worm is similar to what this website talks about
http://www.spynomore.com/trojan-worm-backdoor-badguy-265.htm

Trojan/Worm/Backdoor/Badguy.265

Alias: Bad Guy, Badguy.265, Bad Guy1, Milan.Badguy virus, Milan.265.A,

Description: Trojan/Worm/Backdoor/Badguy.265 is trojan. A Trojans or Trojan Horse is any programs that installs itself secretly, quite often with sinister intent. Once installed, the trojan author (hacker) can gain complete control of the infected PC. Trojans are usually designed to steal sensitive information and/or destroy the system. Trojans can be distributed as unsolicited email attachments, or bundled with freeware and shareware programs.


edit 1:
the virus stops sending the same message at 1pm. I encountered this at around 11:45am.
According to my sister, that virus might came from a friend of mine who accidentally opened this virus and auto send it self to all of the contacts located in the yahoo mail address book.
its the same behaviour on how email worms duplicate it self and send to all contacts automatically. and my email address is stored in my friend's address book, thats why I received it and keeps on bouncing back to me.

for an estimate of 200 email I received on that time frame of 11:45-1pm.

part 2: The Joker action figure for the Dark Knight movie



This is the look needed for a Heath Ledger version of the Joker for the Dark Knight movie, as you can see that the figure's detail on the face is good than the other figure we saw last time in my other blog post for the Joker action figure, I think they worked on a new sculpt or a new toyline. Probably they made this new figure line for collectors and adults, and it looks like that your kid won't love this toy, because it is scary and disturbing.

also the images below are figures that I saw in the Dark Knight group Facebook, I've seen them before in the Toy Fair 2008 and also at the Lego trade show here in Manila, but the most interesting to see is the action figure above with the Heath detail on it.



first figure is for the new anime-nated movie Gotham Knights, you can check out the youtube for a 10 minute preview of it, Batman in Anime style, and it says on the net that the new animatedmovie will launch in DVD on July 2008. Second photo is from the Lego toy line 'Batman" pretty comic features and very cute, the Joker is included in the Tumbler car Lego set and the funny man has his own vehicle to fight with Batman, the Last photo is a Joker playing card replica that was used in Batman Begins, the card might be included in the Joker figure line, I just don't know which toyline because all of these are from the Toy Fair 2008.

the buzz is that, the toys might be available on May or June 2008.

Btw, theres a new trailer for the Dark Knight, and it will be on March 7, according to some movie sites and it will be launched together with the 10,000 B.C. movie, wow! I love to see 10k BC but the Dark knight movie still excites me more than watching 10k BC. check your local theaters for the schedule of the release of the movie 10,000 B.C.

The 200 Pesos sacrifice



I just learned a lesson today and I just sacrificed a P200 to the black market of money changer. I just didn't know at first that they are very strict in changing US dollars that dated 1996. And I didn't know that my money is dated 1996. I only encountered this kind of situation once, and it is my first time to have a transaction outside the mall's money changer service or bank, and since that I'm stuck here in Robinson's Manila and had used my money into something important for a postal service. I was shocked to know that the money changer here in the mall has no Philippine cash for the day, at first I waited 30 min, because the cashier told me to wait for 30 min. because they are still waiting for the cash, then after 30min. they pulled out a sign that says "no cash today Feb 26", after reading that I was pissed and mad, hope they told me about it after my inquiry.

then I told the guard if they know somewhere a reliable money changer, but the guard said that there is no other changer in the mall, I should try outside the mall in Padre Faura wing, there I know it is a black market for money changing, but I don't have a choice but to go there even if it is raining.

I tried the first money changer and it seems a little rusty, after entering its doors and handed them my money,the old lady told me that the 100 US dollar I'm handling is dated 1996, and the exchange rate for that is P38. I was mad and told them why do they do that, and they didn't explained why and told me that even in the malls don't accept 1996 dated money. I just went out after it and told them (using my Professor X telepathy) that they can't fool me, SM money changing services are a lot more better than them.

then on the 2nd money changer, a younger lady explained to me clearly that their US dollar buyer don't accept 1996 thats why the exchange rate for 1996 or maybe 2000 below is P38 per 1 dollar. So the rain started to fall heavily and then I decided to let go my 100 US dollar to them and sacrifice P200 to their buyer. Well its a lot good than getting a taxi and travel my way to SM MOA.

the exchange rate in the mall today is 40.60, while in the black market is 40.50....or i think it was 40.15, if i heard it correctly.

my lesson for today is.....

don't ever pick up a stray P200 on the floor of Shangri-La Mall, even if the owner is nowhere to be found. or if it is not yours, just leave it there and let someone picked it up and carry a bad karma.




by the way, I'm in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. inside Robinsons Manila mall, Midtown Wing.
The Midtown wing is very nice, I feel that I'm in Podium, SM MOA or rockwell hahahaah.
the Toy's R US here is big!

Edit 1:
here's a plain explanation from my multiply contacts

"Sir, I think I may have an explanation why the 1996 and older dollar bills are not exchanged at the same rates: it was only in 1996 that the U.S. treasury started to incorporate state-of-the-art anti-counterfeiting features into their currency (source). Maybe the inconvenience of having to verify if the old bills are genuine is the reason why it is not as accepted by moneychangers as newer money."

Star Wars mini cakes


more photos here The Star Wars Gang's Here!!!

you can order custom designed cakes and choose your preferred comic or movie character, I saw this in my multiply network where they made one and gave it to Star Wars fan birthday guy.

you can visit http://gelcolet.multiply.com/ for more info and other photo of cake portfolios.

This is something you can't encounter everyday in the mall or in some restos. Custom cakes are the best! cool, cute and yummy.

As a Starwoid, I think it will be hard for me to eat these custom Star Wars cakes, I just want to keep it and store it with my collections hehehee.

Fight USB Keylogger Viruses

I just read a blog post about this Keylogger Virus in some blog, and It is so horrifying that this malicious virus not only infects your pc but it deletes all emails in your Yahoo! mail after you logged in to your Yahoo! Messenger. it is really scary!

I encountered already this virus and I'm glad that all of us are aware of the USB viruses spreading around and we immediately deleted it.

Here are some tips if you don't have any updated antivirus software
also I already given this tip in my previous blog posts and everyone is doing the same routine.

1. never double click a usb drive if you are not sure
2. right click on it and explore the files
3. click the menu of that folder, click tools, and folder options
4. enable view all hidden files and other system files
5. if you spotted some hidden files being exposed, some of them are in .vbf file, and an executable file like SVCIHOST.EXE, thats one of the culprit. all you have to do is delete it.
6.sometimes this virus spreads all in your USB root folder, so if you dont have any virus scanners, you will be going to delete it manually, one by one.
7. then after doing it and everything is clean, try checking it again by unplugging it.
8. restart your pc and check your root directory C:\ drive if it is infected too.
9. next time, download and get a anti virus software to block this pest viruses.

The 7th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention production note 2



episode 2 of our production note, its a road to ToyCon year 7 and I'm happy to announce that LEGO will be part of the ToyCon family this June 14-15, 2008.

I was with the Philippines' Bricksters an all Pinoy community for Lego fans, lovers, collectors and hobbyist during the trade show presentation on the new upcoming lines for LEGO. I'm still in shock to see new designs and variation of LEGO for kids, teens and adults, and also I just saw the Dark Knight Lego, Indiana Jones Lego, Speed Racer Lego and other new look and design.

I'm still working on the production program and also the list of contest that we will be having. I like to remove other contest to give way new contest for this year, but it seems that everyone is still expecting that we will organize it again for this year. The event is getting big, and because that we are still on the production mode, everything that we are planning is not yet FINAL.

During the pre-production we are working as one man machine, having my own home it support, answering all inquiries regarding about the ToyCon and contests, I reply them all and I make sure that everyone gets a reply :)

Also on March will be the full scale move for ToyCon year 7. so updates will be running fast and hope we finalize everything. Now get ready for the 2nd teaser poster coming up.

now I'm going back to my day job, see you on the 3rd production note.

Knight Rider, the fast and the furious KITT

The image “http://tvmedia.ign.com/tv/image/article/852/852370/knight-rider-2008-20080214012945535_640w.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
image from IGN

For me, they should done this tv series into a movie. Well' I just over reacted too much on too much car scenes hahhaha. I do have little nostalgia of the old tv series of Knight Rider, but didn't grew up too much from it, but I only remember is that talking car KITT and the driver- the Hoff.

But this 2008 Knight Rider is not a remake, but it is a part of the original Knight Rider tv series and it was mentioned in the new tv series that this is the 2nd generation of the KITT car, the black Mustang car for the KITT 2008 is one big weapon, if I'm going to get a PC or a toy, the KITT 2008 is the best toy there is. Well I just hope that this is real.

The story revolves around in a 2 hour car chase and introduction of the new KITT and the characters. Funny to see also they mentioned Michael Knight and the new driver for the KITT car, I guess the Knight Rider line do flow in the blood. A cameo appearance of Michael Knight appeared on the last scene. At first I speculated early that the enemy in the tv series might be Michael Knight, but then I just guess that he will be appearing soon in some episodes and might be bringing up the 1st KITT.

I didn't researched on what happened to the 1st KITT. but I just love to see it return and do a contest with the new one.

for me. the 2nd gen KITT is much stronger than the 1st gen KITT. it looks like a merge KITT and VIPER car, yeah I watch the tv series VIPER, with lots of cool gadgets and abilities, I just dont remember if it talks ahhahahaa.

If you didn't grew up with Knight Rider, you should try this. just don't mind the actors and poor acting on the pilot episode. Just focus your attention to the car.. yeah! the car speaks! and the main character of this tv series.

I want to see KITT fights with robots and other super cars in the future episodes

The Assassination of Jesse James premeire night out


above is my short video blog while we wait for the cinema to open in Rockwel Powerplant Mall


Last night was the premiere night for the movie promo and organized by MAXXX. The movie is "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford". I just already a review of the movie on tv and was surprised that theres already a DVD out in the market in the US. But we got late again here in Manila to air the movie, but its okay! it is better to be late than never.

I was confused on the name Coward Robert Ford, at first I thought he was a writer or a director of the movie, and I'm familiar only by the name Jesse James and didn't know that the Coward Robert Ford is one of the characters in the movie and was dubbed as the coward murderer because he shot Jesse James in the head and great to see an effect of his death with vertical blinds and other realistic props thats like in the west.

The image “http://us.movies1.yimg.com/movies.yahoo.com/images/hv/photo/movie_pix/warner_brothers/the_assassination_of_jesse_james_by_the_coward_robert_ford/_group_photos/brad_pitt15.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
It was a great history movie for me, Brad Pitt as Jesse James and Casey Affleck as Robert Ford aka Bob. Funny thing on Casey is that I can't remove Ben Affleck's face on the screen hahahaha. While Brad's performance is great! he is a bad ass and fit to one of those wild west bad characters.

Don't expect that the movie is like other wild west films, make it a little different approach, try thinking Wild West meets drama and books. Its like reading a book and know more about what happened to Jesse James and the gang of robbers and what ended to them after committing a big crime of the 1800's.

Shoot and Kill!, sometimes the gun shot made my butt fly in the air, gun tooters fires out of nowhere and bunch of flesh rips out of it, it is so realistic and thats the way how a gun fires and bullets hit human flesh.


with my sister in Coffee Bean, cool to see that the mall offers free wifi access. All you have to do is install the WiGo toolbar, register and then you can access the internet for free.


if you like the wild west and some part of history. This movie is a good choice for you. Just to remind that the movie is all talkies and you need to pay attention not only to Jesse James but also with other characters revoling around. Character development didn't take too long, a narrator of the movie will help you out identify who's who in the film.

check out Wikipedia also for the history of Jesse James, it will be better to check out the info and later on check the movie trailer.

The Joker action figure for the Dark Knight movie



I just saw this Joker action figure posted in the Darkn Knight group Facebook and I was wondering if this will be their final touch for the Joker figure, it seems that the face of the Joker here looks too happy and not too creepy. It doesn't look more like Heath Ledger and why am I thinking too much of Robin Williams in this figure haahahaah, maybe this is an effect of too much jokerishism in my life.




Below are some of the images that I downloaded and also a short look on whats the blister pack packaging layout. Many people commented after seeing the cover of Action Figure magazine, Indiana Jones figure looks more a bad ass than the figure of Joker.

Also my sister shared to me a news that a Heath Ledger doll will be for sale soon.

An action figure depicting Heath Ledger in the role of The Joker is to go on sale.

The 28-year-old had just finished shooting Batman movie The Dark Knight when he died of an overdose of prescription drugs on January 22. Read more new here


I just hope that this doll will be more look like Heath Joker :)

The 7th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention production note 1



At last!!!!
this is the 1st and official production note blog for the 7th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2008, dubbed as ToyCon year 7, and sometimes tag as the Philippine version of the Comic Con San Diego, well sometimes I tag it as the grand daddy of all convention in the Philippines hehehehe.

We just had our 2nd meeting last friday and it was the very official meeting of our organizing team Collectibles Unlimited Assoc., we just laid out our plans and finalize everything we wanted for the ToyCon year 7, I will call it ToyCon year 7 because our convention is already 7 years old! and yes! the convention is getting bigger and bigger every year and I can't imagine already that we reached our 7th year this 2008.

the main venue will be in Megatrade Hall 1-2 in SM Megamall, thats the biggest venue for us compare from last year, and it will double once again the incoming crowd and we will post many attractions of comics, toys, movies, games to everyone. I'm still dreaming of having a 3 hall event for ToyCon, but we will just see if we can surpass the event last year.

Our first meeting was 2 weeks ago and we got a meeting with our partners, sponsors and other entities that will be added to the ToyCon family. I already posted some news in other toy groups but I'll just give a big suspense for everyone hehehhe.

I'm now reformatting the contests and also other attractions, I'm trying not to post the full details for now because I'm avoiding other events that might copy our concept. I'm so afraid if that happen. There will be a lot changes for the contest, I'm trying to organize all the prizes details and also will get new marshals and production people for the event, ( hey if you're reading this and you're interested to join the team, you know where to reach me :)

also the cosplay contest will be removed this year, we will not just removed it but we will do a lot of changes for the ToyCon year 7 and this year will not focus more on the toy, comics, movies, games only. But we will be focusing more on the Pinoy's greatest contribution for the world of this hobby, pop culture and fandom. And don't forget Mr. billionaire by day and dark knight by night will be the main theme for this year.

and might have a cough! cough!*exclusives * cough..t-0- zzzz.zzz

my first production note for ToyCon year 7 ends here and will update more and give you the latest of the goodie ol' stuff we will bring this year.
