RC helicopter on top of the mango tree

I was practicing to play and maneuver this PicoZ Uranus RC Helicopter here at home and then I went outside to have a bigger space to fly the RC heli and then suddenly I got the wrong move to press the flight button on max level and it send the RC heli way up until it reaches the top of our house, then there's a limit that the RC heli can loss its signal from the RC controller and it will automatically shut off. It landed now in top of our mango tree and I'm having a hard time looking for it..arghh

I tried climbing the mango tree and I got scared because there are bee hives on top of the branches and my muscles can't take it any longer, so I quit in climbing that tree. I'll just let the wind blew it off and wait till it lands on the ground. I have also a chance of using the RC heli's flashlight, but the battery of it can last up to 20 minutes only and its hard to look for it on a day time.

coverage: Ave Maria: a tribute to the Blessed Virgin (Marian Exhibit)

P9208673
I spotted this traveling exhibit on my way home last Sunday, a tribute exhibit for the Blessed Virgin was held at the activity center of SM Bacoor, the exhibit caught my attention from the other side of the mall after I hear some prayer songs and chants and smell of the flowers and candles. Most of the displayed images are replicas that are from different churches in the Philippines.

video: Fergie and Apl.de.ap's concert inviite message for the BEP concert



Black Eyed Peas to unite for grand concert on October 25!

Most sections full! Tickets selling like pancakes! This is the latest update from Futuretainment and Music Management International, producers behind successful and most enjoyed concerts such as Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Miley Cyrus and Thirty Seconds to Mars. The Black Eyed Peas dance and all-hits concert happening next month on October 25, 2011 at the Mall of Asia open concert grounds is deemed to be one of the grandest concert experiences to grace Filipinos and Asians this year!

Over 10,000 fans of Black Eyed Peas from Beijing, Brunei, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Singapore, Shanghai and Taipei are going to work their bodies, dance all night and party like never before with the BEP in Manila! With the help of Philippines’ largest airline, Cebu Pacific, Filipino fans not only in Legazpi, Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Bacolod and Zamboanga but citizens and Pea-ple fans in our neighboring countries got the chance to meet the BEP halfway with 50% off their flight fare!

The multi-Grammy Award winning and hottest selling group composed of rappers will.i.am (William Adams), Filipino apl.de.ap (Allan Pineda), Taboo (Jaime Gomez) and recently wed songstress Fergie (Stacy Ann Ferguson) are also equally excited to be back in the Philippines to perform some of the world’s favourite songs. The crowd are expected to jump with them with “Boom Boom Pow,” “The Time-Dirty Bit,” “Let’s Get It Started,” “Imma Be Rocking That Body,” and “Don’t Stop The Party.”

Futuretainment head and actor Marvin Agustin believes the BEP is one of the greatest music groups of our generation. “People from all walks of life can easily relate to their songs, they get inspired from their songs lyrics and lately, their songs move the crowd! Their concert is something special, something beyond entertainment. Good music and message! Definitely an experience only The Black Eyed can offer,” says Marvin. He also has good words for BEP member apl.de.ap or Allan Pineda. “Allan has steadily been an inspiration to us and having an awesome and powerful group such as the BEP to perform in the Philippines is such a great honor and privilege to the Philippines,” added Marvin.

Everyone is waiting for the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet


the old Amazon Kindle

I remember that I almost bought a Kindle via online before the iPad was released, but then I heard the news about the Apple iPad and saw its features I forced myself not to buy and wait, and then I waited again for more time to research before I buy that tablet and then here comes other brands making their own tablet, then Android game in. Okay I got confused and I have to wait for more time to see the best tablet with a good price.

I saw some news on the net yesterday that Amazon will be bringing back their Kindle to compete with the iPad and other tablet , it has their own Kindle OS and powered by Andoid, then the name was given - Kindle Fire. News came in on Bloomberg and they mentioned that the new tablet will have subscription to ebooks and also movies online. I read on some tech sites and blogs that this Kindle Fire is a 7 inch tablet with no camera and not a type of tablet with lots of storage space, high speed processor and no Android market... ohh what?!  But the price has been revealed and it will be sold online over at Amazon for a $250. It can surf via wifi and it will let you do some online activities like reading email, surf sites and blog and then read ebooks and watch movies.

They say that this could be the iPad killer, but with its spec, it can only compete with other 7 inch tablet, and I heard that a 10 inch Kindle Fire will be released next year, so far iPad will come out with their own 3rd version,but it can compete on a price value and have its own unique function for users.

A big unveiling will be today, as they say.... and let's wait for the announcement at Amazon.com , my fingers are ready and might hit the buy now button if all details impresses me.

I'm surprised that someone is selling a custom made Manny Pacquiao masks, a perfect mask companion for your halloween 2011 costume. I remember that a Michael Jackson mask was sold in Japan after the death of our King of Pop and it was selling like pancakes. I already emailed the seller and inquired on how much and how to order this mask. I'm going to check out what kind of material they used for the Pacquiao mask. This will be added to my small Pacquiao collection.

Thanks to z3LL for sharing this in his plurk timeline.

update:

saw a post here about the material used for the mask

and here's another post from the seller

and rumor that a Margarito beaten up mask will be the next production

Castlevania The Dracula X Chronicles PSP


I'm a super Castlevania fan and also a late bloomer when it comes to video games, I spotted this game in a mall with a price tag of Php 600. I research it via Youtube for the trailer and its graphics, and wow! I'm very impressed that the game graphics is awesome on PSP, now this game will haunt me for the whole night and will accept its challenge tomorrow. This might be my new game after 5 months that I purchased that Rock Band PSP game for a Php 350 only.

Star Wars: Clone Wars Season 3 in Cartoon Network (Join the contest and win Star Wars Shirt)

Star Wars (1)
I didn't realized that the episode of Star Wars: Clone Wars that I saw in Cartoon Network channel 2 weeks ago are already a part of its Season 3, It was a very serious episode about politics and corruption, and I got glued to it when they aired it and got my mood of watching cartoons again after I caught that Avengers 1st episode at CN, I'm sure kids today really understood what's going on in real life and the events happening at the universe of Star Wars. Season 3 already hit the cable tv and Cartoon Network airs it every Sunday at 9pm.

I have also an ongoing contest and hope you can join and take a quiz all about Star Wars.

Camera test shot of #Smartnetphone

photo taken using Smart Netphone

I'm heavily using my Smart Netphone as my mobile companion in surfing the web, posting status updates and take photos with its 3.2 megapixel AF camera. I did a series of test using the plain phone camera and I tested it using 2 installs android apps for photography - Retrocam and Snaptastic.

The 3.2 megapixel with AF function is fine and It's a good tool for me already in taking quick cam photos whenever I'm outside, in a mall, restaurant, at home, I use it to sneak in a fast photo shoot, because camera phones of the Smart Netphone is small and easy to use, I' okay with its photo quality, but the effects are much more beautiful when I use those apps like the Retrocam.

Angry Birds shirts and boxers in SM Department Store

IMG_20110921_191604

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)

Three kinds of Qosmio laptops were introduced to us last August 2011 and they are in its high performance with a very impressive specs.

Scary figures, masks and monsters in Toy Kingdom

IMG_20110920_182913
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.

Filipinos are into fashion. They always bring new trends to the public. A trend setter that keeps the blood of real fashionista in their own way. Here in our country, we recognize, invent or create, blending or mixing everything that we tend to build in our fashion community. That’s why, many of us are trendy and keep on the updates of new style of outfits. 

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

  P9055419
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

PC187354
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.

Review
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 Blogger.com, 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.

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.

Solo in a beach

P9167667
I'm back now here in Manila and it was a rough road trip going back home, I didnt realized that there's an Oktoberfest party happening in Pasay City and that cluttered most of the parts of EDSA, but its okay, I just got a great time with my friends and hang out in a beach with no people around, yeah we three people are present only in the beach, more wacky photo shots taken there and its a great relaxation for us listening to the sounds of the quiet breeze of the wind and ocean. Thanks Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point.

Now I'm back..it means....back to work :)
see you later my blogger friends....blogapalooozzaaaaa!!

photo coverage:Condotel launch at Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point

P9157326
Here's my photo coverage of the launch of the condotel in Thunderbirds Resorts Poro Point. Condotel is a 51 units condo like hotel that will be built infront of the resort and below the hill and near the boardwalk. Price of each unit is P5.5 million. They also opened a business opportunity to all their unit owners to do tie up with the resort by allowing their units to be rented by their patrons. I'll post more details here in my blog as soon as I arrive back in Manila.

Big bike tricycle in La Union

P9157080
We rode this tricycle in La Union, the driver brought us to our destination, Ma Cho Temple to Halo Halo de Iloko. The sound of vroom of this bike caught my attention when I sat inside the trike coaster and then blogger friend Alex rode at the back seat and behind the driver. I checked the brand and its a Motorstar motorcycle, I double check if it is a big bike or a converted one, but I only see one big bike in the product list of Motorstar. Really cool to ride with the big bike trike, the driver might be the owner and a former big bike biker.

But what if we have a tricycle combined with a Gunbus 410 big bike?
