Twilight Soundtrack Launch party - Dec 6, 2008 | Glorietta 3 park tent

Where will you be at twilight? If you are busy hiding from the sun and sulking until you meet your very own Bella (or vice versa), how about you consider joining us as Warner Music Philippines, in cooperation with Fudge magazine, holds a special Twilight Soundtrack Launch part for all you Twilight-ers!

Be in your cool, laid back vampire best—or for the ladies, on your best Bella behavior—and join us at the Glorietta 3 park tent on December 6, rom 3pm to 7pm. EB with other Twi-hards or enlist with the Twilight coven Philippines and share your thoughts about the movie, the book and the music with other fans.

To get in and participate, you have to buy either a Twilight OST or the latest issue of Fudge magazine at the reception (with Wolfgang on the cover). This comes with a hot freebie: a special limited edition free Twilight poster that you can hang in your lair (or your room, whichever you have)! It’s not available for sale so you’ll only get it here. For those who already have the CD but want to be on the guest list, please check in at for details. However, Twilight OST holders will only get the special poster if you buy a copy of Fudge magazine at the venue.

Entrance to the Twilight Soundtrack Launch party also comes with a free drink (One Iced Tea) and snacks from Yoshinoya, while you are kept occupied by our Twilight OST listening booth courtesy of JB/Sennheiser. Bands like Faintlight, Nyctinasty and the great Urbandub will be playing.

Come in dressed as your favorite Cullen vampire (or as James, if you dare) or as Bella and have your picture taken at our Olympus photo wall. You may get your photo souvenirs printed with our HP printers. The best dressed Edward and Bella will win special prizes from our sponsors.

Meanwhile, show your love for all things Twilight and join the gathering that begins before the sun sets.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine - new 8 photos

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

This is a slight delay of reaction after seeing the new promo photo of X-men Origins : Wolverine
and after taking a look of it from my friend's updates via YM and Multiply, I just noticed that this promo photo of Wolverine is very clean and sort of flashy. I just don't know..maybe I want that grungy and dirty of look of Wolvie during the 1st X-men movie. Wearing jacket, cigar and jeans.

more photos below and my commentary after the jump
or you can check out my blog updates of all Wolverine movie here at

Empire Magazine January 2009 issue, glad that someone uploads a scan of it, this magazine costs Php 900 here in the Philippines and it sucks that it is very pricey and I haven't got my own Empire magazine yet hahaha. Wolverine stands for the cover, with that clean look, hope that they put a savage version of ol' canuckle head.

Girls screamed after seeing a cameo appearance of Gambit in the promo trailer months ago, and Taylor Kitsch is now really Gambit for the live action version. For the 1st time ever having a snap shot look on what will be its role in the movie. Yeah. he gambles and play poker!

Wolverine vs. Sabretooth. The best ever fight in the comics universe. I'm just wandering if they will adapt on some revelations from the comics to the movies. I just missed a lot of Wolverine Origins in comics, but for the movie...maybe they will add some info and story directly from the comics. That's the point why they created those origin comics, so that you can have your own movie for movie fans.

Another clean look, I just hope that Wolverine will have a different outfit.
I will hate this movie if he wears that white sando for 2 hours of the film.

Weapon X in the making.. This is it ! adamantium at its best.

Carlo Pagulayan wishes for a Captain America cameo, but I guess it won't happen..
or can happen. I wish for that too.

Everyone is ready to fire!, except for that guy in the far right. I think he is reading some script lines on the ground ahaahaha. This scenes shows that Logan aka Wolverine and Creed aka Sabretooth arguing that they should rip those soldiers out of their uniform, massacre them and leave the island.. um.. I'm not doing any fan fiction line hehhe, its just a short blurb for this blog.

Okay.. that's another round of Wolverine, hope we can see the real action next week
as we will see the theatrical trailer of the film with the movie of The Day The Earth Stood Stills.

The Dark Oscar Awards Knight viral

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

I just noticed this vandalized Oscar Awards poster, and it looks like the Joker tainted some funny laughs and joke on it. Many people think that this gimik is cool, while others got sick of seeing a vandalized poster. I just saw other e-posters of The Dark Knight movie, and got creepy on seeing the Joker again, with its cameo look and feel before I watched the movie months ago.

I just did a little research and found out that some of the posters are officially made by Warner Bros. while others are made by fans, I think... including the poster above

Check out more photos below, and tell me what you think

I don't mind of Heath Ledger get the awards for the Best Supporting Actor, but most people doesn't want him to have the award. But I like to ask for a consideration too, that Heath should get the Oscars, you can hit me.. but I love this freaking film..and it freaked me out before and after watching it.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

I'm not sure for the Best Picture, but as a comic and Bat-fan, my vote will be for this film,
But I know there are other great films and I'm curious to see on what will be the list of nominees for the Best Picture category. But Best Actor for Christian Bale? hmm. The vocal cords and voice acting already ruined his performance. But hey! disguising your self as a caped crusader needs to disguise your voice too, for me its a brilliant idea to be realistic, but for some people who are not comics fans... they will sure laught it ahahaha. ( oppps)

Best Picture!, I just hope..everytime I look on the word "haunting", the horror and being freaky of the film comes back to me. Good luck The Dark Knight.

My first Sony experience is with my Sony Walkman

It just give me some chills and goosebumps after I googled an image of my 1st Sony experience item and this Sony Walkman is my ever first item in my entire life, I just remembered that I used to play my favorite cassette tapes like Sesame Street and recorded music from the radio. During my youngling years I love to listen to music and thanks to my uncle and aunt for giving this great item during their early balikbayan times. Read more below.

I carry the Sony Walkman in school and then during my boy scout days, I never leave home with it, because its the only gadget that I have and I love listening to music and also the radio. There was a time that this Walkman reached my High School days and I felt sad when it got broken and because of it was old and being used almost everyday, I said good bye to it and waited for another Sony Walkman to be replaced by my aunt and uncle a year after, but love the new features and also its style with a color black design, perfect for the early 90's.

My dad is a big Sony fan, all our TV sets are branded Sony, we also have our 1st CD player, which gave me my first weirdness to see a CD audio and a big Sony CD and cassette player. My mom bought this Mariah Carey MTV Unplugged CD and she played it over and over again, because of that CDs are very rare that time its the only CD audio we have at home after they bought it, then dad told me to choose my first CD audio ahahah, oh yeah, Black Sabbath CD is still the shiznit! and I love it.

My family is big Sony user and I'm happy to learn from my dad that all of us should buy great branded items like Sony. aww I'm starting to miss my dad and family because of this blog post.

The early Sony Walkman definitely gave significance in my life just like the Sony’s World’s First RGB LED Backlight LCD TV: Bravia X450, that simply amazes me whenever it comes from 1st base technology, we just got a new Sony Bravia LCD TV T-series weeks ago, and I'm very impressed on its style and intelligent features. Best for enjoying watching TV and also home movies.

On my next post will be the top interesting items that is perfect for gifts and for your Christmas hauls.

December 5 –16, 2008
World Trade Center Metro Manila

We are visiting this bazaar every year, and I think we visit it 2-3 times in a week, just to grab the good items and also catching up the closing sale of all stalls. Best to visit this is at around weekday and in the opening and closing date of the bazaar. Great items to choose with wide selection of never before seen items, I always check out some cool t-shirts and also some toys.
Also great to see some celebrities selling some of their items at the stall.


8th Noel Discovery Bazaar and Christmas Shopping Expo

World Trade Center Metro Manila
info here

Another bazaar festival event that we don't miss, I remember that we bought and almost completed the Care Bears stuff toy and bought it in one of the stalls that we saw every year. This is one of the bazaars that is crowded same as the bazaar listed above. Best visit is still on the weekdays if you don't like too much people in the area, but be there early because the car parking is a pain and bring lots of plastic bags or call your driver to pick up the items from you, so that you won't carry too much of your shopping hauls.

Bloggers enjoyed the Super Bowl of China’s New Dishes for December

30 Bloggers join the food event at Super Bowl of China, TriNoma mall.

Super Bowl of China gave us tasty and healthy dishes for this month, and Bloggers were invited to check out the master chef's skills in cooking and also for us to design our own decorated art bowl. organized the event with Super Bowl of China at the TriNoma branch, lots of bloggers and photographers participated and we enjoy the event as we got lots of hot table discussions with my seat mate.

We saw how the chinese master chef cooked this Tao Sa Pao, its a sweet treat of fried siopao dough with black bean cream filling. They boiled the oil on a 109 degrees hot frying pan, under that is the super hot jet flame stove. Its kinda scary inside, but the master chefs is the expert here and they guide us on how to check if the oil is in correct heat and how to cook Tao Sa Pao. They used a strainer and pour the hot oil in the dough and continue the process until it turns brown. ( read more below)

After the tour, we just finished designing our bowl, its funny that I always ruined my own design and I just can't avoid touching the wet paint of my bowl during my process of coloring the other side, It was supposed to be a funny face in the bowl, but the coloring thing made it look ugly ahhhaa. You can see my entry in the top side of this photo.
We also tasted the Crispy Mandarin Chicken, , made of boneless chicken fillets fried to a golden brown crisp, drenched in a light and mildly spiced Chinese Sauce, and served with Taiwan petchay on the side. It made my day, because it tasted good and first I thought it was a duck or a pigeon. There is also a Lechon Macau, which Marcelle really waited to tasted and we say hello to our fellow heart and arteries, we didn't wasted time and ate the Lechon Macau, its a deep-fried crispy pork belly cutlets seasoned with select Chinese spices and served with Hoisin sauce on the side, the winner part of the Lechon Macau is the Hoisin sauce, it has a sweet taste and it kills the "suya" feel under your tongue, also RG enjoyed eating his vegetable with the sauce.

I love sea foods and vegetables, this Seafood Chopsuey that is cooked with assorted garden fresh vegetables with black and mixed mushrooms sautéed with fish fillet, shrimp, and other seafood, is the best meal of the day for me, and I love the way they cooked it and tasted not too salty, but more healthy to my heart :)
