Gear up for another coverage, about emoney and online stores
I’m gearing up my camera and gadgets for I will attend a media briefing about Union Bank and Gcash partnership. Its a good news for all but I don’t know yet what will they offer to us, could benefit Paypal users to remit the emoney to a real cash, we know that Union Bank gave us that Eon card were we can transfer our Paypal emoney to our Union Bank account. This might be another service were we can transfer our emoney to Gcash mobile or their atm card. I have that Gcash atm card, but I haven’t used it and stored money, but I always bring it with me and will use it in case of emergency, especially if ever I needed a cash or someone will pay gcash to gcash, good thing is that I have a gcash account.

I’m setting up an online store in , I’ll be resurrecting that old online store for toys and comics, some of my personal collections that I’ll sell online through, I like their new service in adding that Market Place for sellers and buyers and a payment system that can protect the buyers and sellers from scams. Two online stores or maybe 3-4 online store project that I’m going to handle, I’m going to help a friend who have this toy store in Eton Cyberpod and together we’re going to create an active and aggressive online store for toys and collectibles.

Okay, my camera batteries are charged up, I’ll post the coverage later here in my blog.

The spammy

So what did I do today? I have lots of back logs and also unpublished blog post for the past weeks but I’m starting to manage everything and post everything at once before the hype of each topic dies out, I even forgot to post my review of the Harry Potter movie and other movies that I watched recently with my wife. Right now we’re starting to be a movie buff and staying in our room watching some movies on cable tv or movies we have onhand. I’m researching for some comedy films for 2009 and 2010 and looks like that we are already on the half of the list, I’m kinda annoyed that my wife doesn’t want to watch Big Momma’s movie with me, so I cancelled out my order of that video and looked for other movies. Can you recommend a title?

Avengers movie - teaser trailer (bootleg and leaked ver)

Here’s the leaked teaser trailer for Avengers movie that will come out on 2012, this trailer activates all 2012 summer movies and now they are circulating on the web, and now being discussed online about how awesome this movie can be. Avengers movie just did a successful tie in and cross over to different Marvel movies - Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America. According to, this is the Marvel cinematic universe.

I saw the trailer and noticed that the setting is similar to the comic book and animated movie - Ultimate Avengers, I think that is their basis because at 1st they will get rid of the menace of the Hulk and then later on encounter some alien invasion situation, but according to rumors the main villain for Avengers movie is Loki, I did take a peak on the 1st season ender of the animated series Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Hero, the final villain there is Loki and then the start of the 2nd season will start on that assassination of Captain America and activates the Secret Invasion.

The Dark Knight Rises - movie teaser trailer


Everyone are talking about the released of this leaked teaser trailer for the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises movie on summer of 2012. I know many are excited for this movie,but then you got one year to read more about the story in the comics about Bane and Batman’s mega series - Knightfall, but then I find more enjoyable to listen on that radio drama version that are now floating in YouTube. After reading or listening to Knightfall, then grab a copy of Batman:Vengeance, that is a story of Bane’s origin, personally that’s my favorite story and added him as one of my favorite character.
