Angry Birds shirts and boxers in SM Department Store


I spotted these Angry Birds shirts and boxer shorts in SM Department Store in SM Makati, and it says on the label of the shirt that they are officially licensed to our local Ellison Enterprises Corp. to distribute officially in our local stores. I'm glad that we have this and it will keep me away from buying those fake Angry Bird shirts in some tiangges, For a price of P350 pesos, pwede na sya! They are displayed at the teens section of the dept. store. I think they are the same company the prints the Plants vs. Zombies shirts. I wonder if Rovio Entertainment really knows about this, what do you think ?

There are different designs to choose from, they also have spoof characters into Angry Birds, like the Justice League, Sponge Bob and Sesame Street spoof, all of them are in characters of Angry Birds. I also spotted some naughty shirts like - "my Bird is so angry! " and then arrow points down.

Nivea For Men (for your face and body) is here!

me P9177945 Multi 8 (Small)
pwede na di ba?

I'm very lazy to give a time for myself whenever it is all about skin care for men or other kikay stuff that a guy's need. I think my last serious skin care habit is around high school when I regularly visit a skin care clinic and buy those stuff that can make my skin smooth and clean, but I got tired and lazy to take care of my skin after 4 years and I stopped visiting and do those skin application every morning and night. After more than 20 years, I noticed that my face becomes oily and rough, I think its a part of growing up and becoming old. I'm glad that I have tried this Nivea for Men skin care, a collection of different kinds of skin care stuff that reminds me to have a better skin and have the time to kikay myself again and never look oily and ugly. I tried some of the Nivea for Men and I'm very satisfied and will continue to use it. (MORE BELOW)

Toshiba's 3D glasses free and gaming Qosmio laptops

Its hard to describe and feature this Toshiba Qosmio laptops, because you need to see it yourself and experience how the 3D glass free laptop works and how big are the screens and with clear sound quality. Three kinds of Qosmio laptops were introduced to us last August 2011 and they are in its high performance with a very impressive specs. The Toshiba new line of laptops will be called Qosmio and not Toshiba, because you'll notice that Toshiba logo is no longer used in the back of the screen's cover, this time you'll see only the Qosmio logo when you see it. The gaming laptops are the Qosmio F750 2D, Qosmio F750 the one with 3D glasses free, and the Qosmio X770 the one with a 17 inches HD screen. (MORE BELOW)

Scary figures, masks and monsters in Toy Kingdom

It Halloween time again! I just saw these disturbing and gory figures in the toy deck of Toy Kingdom, I just can't believe that the merchandise for halloween are becoming so scary and freaky. Kids who visit the store are horrified whenever they see the figures and scary images inside the store. Its a halloween for 2 months in Toy Kingdom, if you don't want your kids to have a trauma, or you might be scared of it also, then don't visit Toy Kingdom. But if you have a nephew who is makulit and malikot, then do a prank and take him to Toy Kingdom haahaaha.

Animax Presents Winter Sonata Anime Series

Blog Report by : Marnell Delos Reyes

If you're a fan of Winter Sonata, the korean series that makes a lot of Asian people cry and also gave a launch here in the Philippines as "Endless Love 2", it will be on Animax but what makes the series special, it's already an anime. Winter Sonata will be launching on September 20, 6:50 pm on your favorite anime channel Animax and I'm so excited to review this one. To be honest, I'm a fan of the live series which I've bought the original live series of winter Sonata (that's with english sub of course) and of course this is a big deal to me and I guess the biggest question with the anime version is, Can we feel the same feeling as the live series did to the Asian people?

As an initial review that I will be basing on what I've seen on the trailer, I can safely say that they've done a great job on the anime version. I can feel the same feeling that may compare to the live scene. On the OST part, well they've put the original opening OST which I've been played and sang before. I'm really curious if they will include the "My Memory of Him" and "My Memory of Her" on the anime series?

As an ending remarks, a great story will be the key to grab the attention of the anime audience and I will bet with this one that it will be a hit. :)

Review : Hisense Mini HB200M headset

I was introduced to this China brand called Hisense from their launching event last March 2011, and it is also my first ever Bluetooth headset for my mobile phone. At first I didn’t got the idea why people love to wear those little gadgets on their ears while they work, eat, walk or even sit on long trip inside the jeep or bus. My mom also showed me her own Bluetooth headset and I asked her are if she’s using it? And then she told me that she uses it whenever there’s an incoming and for outgoing calls, but here in the Philippines only few people uses Bluetooth headsets, they might be the working people and using their phones in lots of conferences, but when  I got my own Hisense Mini HB200M headset, I finally understand the meaning of handsfree and how awesome it is to wear it on my ear.

The Kitten inside the taxi cab

My story started after I took off from a bus ride from Cavite to the other side of Coastal Mall, After stepping on the ground, I saw some taxi cab parked on the side of the road infront of Bayview, A taxi driver approaches me and he told me that I can ride on his taxi, and then I noticed that he's holding something on his hands and at first I thought it was a cleaning rug, after I sat infront near the driver's seat, I saw that the driver let go of this kitten and placed it over the taxi's dashboard and I was shocked to see that it is a live kitten infront of me.

Bon Chon Chicken Manila - spicy, crunchy, healthy, more food and branches

Bon Chon Chicken is the new craze that started here in Manila last December 2010, I just remembered during my 1st encounter with a Bon Chon Chicken a few weeks after they opened, I started to crave more and can’t sleep because of its new taste in my mouth and a spice that can’t be replicated by other fried chicken meal, its purely original and Bon Chon gave me an impressive feeling to go back again. They opened lots of branches in the US, Bangkok and Dubai and was tagged as the “best chicken in America” according to a top print – New York Times, Esquire, and GQ Magazine, and to add more spice to your tastebuds, try Bon Chon now in Ayala Triangle, SM Megamall, Robinsons Galeria and Greenbelt 1.

Finally! got my Justice League #1 copy

Reward of the day comes after a very tiring week, I'm so excited to read this today and write my review about it I'm a little bit late for this but I'm glad that Comic Odyssey saved a copy for me. I spotted from their list that more DCnU comics will be delivered this Sept 21, my target to grab is Wonder Woman 1 and Batman 1. Now my hunt for Green Lantern 1 and Detective Comics 1 just started today.

I'm also thinking to get a copy of Green Lantern Corps 1 and Green Arrow 1, but it will be my 2nd choice if ever the priority titles under my list is still out of stock.

oh yeah! comics!

test blog post using #smartnetphone with multiple photos

just a test post using the blogger droid app and camera phone
Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.4

The post above is published from my Smart Netphone, and I'm just writing a review on its performance, I used the Blogger droid app that I found in the Android Market Place and its a free app that can help you post a blog at, I posted earlier a blog post with one photo and it publishes quickly with a photo setting of 400pixels only. I tried posting a blog post with 4 photos and then I always encounter some problems posting it, so I removed the one photo and continue to post it with 3 photos only, and it publishes smoothly. I'm not sure if it allows 3 photos only for the Blogger droid app, but I'm already okay with it since it post successfully.

get ready for more mobile blog post using my Smart Netphone

The Wild Swans Fly High (live in Cebu and Manila)

Journeying through the 80s and into today’s music, The Wild Swans still remains as one of music’s most fascinating bands and Paul Simpson still continues to be an elusive superstar in the heavens.

The 80s discovered them as a New Romantic band coupled with Simpson’s dactylic lyrics that resembled a modern sonnet from “Revolutionary Spirit” to the rise of “Bringing Home The Ashes”, “Young Manhood” and “Bible Dreams.” These were songs in prose and poetry combined yet speaking from an idyllic heart of what it is and what would be.

Care saw Simpson weave and grief with songs such as “My Boyish Days”, “Whatever Possessed You” and “The Worst Year of My Life.”

Paul Simpson’s Skyray project tried to illuminate the dark skies in the 90s but stumbling forward 20 years to the present, Simpson once more reverberates with the same passion as the 80s has discovered him with a completely meaner and rock melodic sound stripping the 80s illusion of jingly - jangly guitars yet without losing his vision of those rhapsodic lyrics with the album, “The Coldest Winter For A Hundred Years” with with it’s carrier single “English Electric Lightning” and the retrospective “Liquid Mercury” which sung about his happiness and frustrations about the long lost members of The Wild Swans. “In Secret” was obvious but the sound and melody grips you with the lines, “They don’t see what I see...they don’t know what I know...some people they never come back...” or “some days I wake I up and I wonder if we went mad...but we know better than that...we just took it to the edge” and that is where The Wild Swans is taking us right now as they continue to be trailblazers in music yet very distinct and refined with their eloquence of words.

At last, finding their courage to fly, Paul Simpson thrusts forward full throttle with a new line up with Ricky Rene Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre/The Triffids/Steve Kilbey of The Church), Les Pattinson (Echo and The Bunnymen), Mike Mooney, Stuart Mann and Richard Turvey.

They will engage in a two - night concert starting on September 30, 2011 at The Waterfront Hotel in Lahug, Cebu City and finally, Manila will get to see and hear them on October 1, 2011, at 1 Esplanade, MOA, Pasay City.

This exceptional event is brought to you by Jesse Gonzales under DMC Philippines, who was also fondly remembered as the former station manager of DWXB 102, the first and only alternative station that heralded the rise of New Wave music and it’s sub genres in the Philippines.

People can now buy their tickets at The Waterfront Hotel and all SM ticket outlets and Ticketworld outlets.
