DC Comics next animated movie is - "Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox" for July 30, 2013

Looks like the animated movie-verse will embrace the New 52 world soon!

here's the story line of the upcoming animated movie

"When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for The Flash and his family, the ripples of the event prove disastrous as a fractured, alternate reality now exists where a Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Teaming with a grittier, more violent Dark Knight and Cyborg, Flash races to restore the continuity of his original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans. With breath taking action and an all-star voice cast, it's a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe."

My digital artwork made from my sleep, snore and bed movements (via Ibisa Sleep Art iOS app )


Here's my first ever digital artwork created by my sleep, snore, bed movements, and breathing while I sleep for 7 hours. This was created via an iOS app called Ibisa Sleep Art. The iPhone captures via microphone your breathing, snoring and then its motion sensors captures your bed movements.

So the artwork shows that I snore a lot and I roll in bed too much hahahah

Try the iOs app, its fun and you create original art during your sleep.

GI JOE: Retaliation movie under the heat of the sun


So I paid Php 300 for the 3D movie and waited for a year for this, its kinda rare for me to pay a load of Php300 just to watch a movie, but thanks to the heat of the sun that drained my energy and got this crazy idea to watch a movie, slurp a biggie ice tea and watch GI JOE: Retaliation movie.

I'm satisfied with this kind of relaxation and I'm now refreshed and ready for my next meeting hahahha.

I like the movie, with lots of action, weird techno gadgets and a watching all those GI JOE characters come to life and I day dream while watching the movie, remembering my youngling times when I was so crazy about the GI JOE cartoons and also the toys.

I'm excited for the next movie...I hope they make it more better...usually... 2nd movie rocks...but this one almost suck...but I still like it.  thanks to the hotness of Andrea Palicki.. I think they should put more sexy girls on the 3rd movie.

For fans of GI JOE.... this movie still wants your blessing..go out and watch it!

Gambino "modern Italian cuisine" restaurant in Forbestown Burgos Circle

Gambino restaurant opens in Burgos Circle
In the middle of the night, I got the chance to try and take a peek of this new restaurant in Forbestown Burgos Circle, its one of the food hubs in BGC that stand around the middle of greeny rotonda, when you're in Burgos Circle, you'll discover lots of restos and lifestyle centers.

Here I tried the Gambino restaurant, its a new resto that gave a modern take to Italian cuisine, all authentic and treated some menu with a twist. The name comes from a mafia boss.

"Gambino is inspired by the regime of Carlo Gambino, one of the phenomenal "five families" for their Mafia's (Cosa Nostra) nationwide activity in Italy and in New York City in the US, During his regime, it became one of the "most powerful boses" in New York City."

The menu is prepared with traditional techniques by Chef Giorgio Bucciarelli, Chef Christine Nicole Nicolas, Chef Elaine Sanchez, and actor turned entrepreneur Marvin Agustin. 

I just got a chat with the Italian Chef Giorgio before in one of the resto with the same cuisine, and I can say that I'm starting to be a fan of his food creations.

This is just my preview and feature of Gambino, I'll re-visit this again and check out the food and drinks next time. (check out some photos from the launch event here)

Gambino restaurant opens in Burgos Circle
Here's my inside the 2nd floor of Gambino, the ambiance is cozy and quiet, but during its soft launch at night, it was in dim mood and the place is perfect for dates and dinner with the family. Sitting by the window will give you a nice light up view of the scene of the greeny Burgos Circle.

Also, Gambino now attracts celebs like John Lloyd Cruz, who dined there few days ago.

I-Suites: a modern Japanese Inspired Hotel in Quezon City

Looking for a romantic get away with a Japanese inspired ambiance? No need to travel a thousand miles away from your hectic life style because you can find what you are looking for just right at the heart of Metro Manila.

iSuites Hotel located at the middle of the bustling city of Quezon City, in the busy streets of Cubao, is where you can find a very relaxing Japanese-inspired hotel and – at a very reasonable price. 

More than a week ago, I received a midnight call from a friend who was then checking in at iSuites Hotel. She was inviting me to come over to her hotel suite to have breakfast with her. Excited to see her again after quite some time, and thought that it’s a perfect time to catch up with each other’s personal lives, I said yes. Thereafter, I just found myself browsing through the internet, looking for the hotel’s pictures, what it looks like, where it is located and how to get there.

In no time, I was able to found photos of it and several customers’ reviews as well. In fact, I was surprised upon seeing the said hotel was mostly rated by customers with three to five stars.

Apparently, they really have a good point. Photos of the hotel revealed elegant-looking hotel rooms that are indeed Japanese-themed, from the Japanese dolls, wall decors, interior decors including the Japanese-restaurant at the ground floor. Upon arriving at the hotel the next morning, we were gladly accommodated by the hotel staffs. One hotel crew in fact, guided us through the elevator and tells us how we can get to the Mikado room. Yes, even the hotel suites’ names are Japanese-inspired.

Finally, when we reached the hotel room where my girl friend was staying, we first checked out her room from every single detail to its every corner including its comfort room. It was so clean, so relaxing and comfortable. It has a complete amenities, flat screen TV, speakers, mini ref, safety vault, coffee table, everything seems to be perfect for such a spacious room. It is an ideal for couple who want to find tranquility or for those who want to get rid of the stress of every day living.

After some chat, we decided to eat breakfast first before we get deeply attached into our girls talk. We headed to the Japanese Restaurant at the opposite side of the hotel lobby. We were greeted by a lady receptionist, little but elegant dining facility. She also personally asked us whether we want tea or coffee for our breakfast and then asked for our order. The food was plated well and served in to us in no time. During our meal, my friend mentioned that the hotel accommodation provides free breakfast meal for two at the restaurant.

That is why I was really surprised. Since then, I started recommending the iSuites Hotel to everyone I know who are looking for a peaceful place within the city at a very practical rate. It really deserves to be classified as a three-star hotel.

Lonsdale clothing in the Philippines - not just for sports but also for casual clothing

Lonsdale clothing in the Philippines - photos by Azrael Coladilla
I'm pictured here at Sofitel Manila and proud to wear this Lonsdale kickboxing t-shirt.  I feel like a super macho guy who knows kick boxing and a member of a fight club, but all I know is street fighting and a couple of Jackie Chan moves that I imitate from his movies.

Lonsdale is a brand known for sports equipment for boxing and also shirt  and shorts for boxers. When I tried to challenge my wife and mentioned to her if she knows the Lonsdale brand, then she told me that its a boxing merch and equipment brand, she uses the gloves and punching bags, then I forgot that she was trained in boxing years ago. Okay, poor me. But from the other side, I know Lonsdale only from boxing, seeing those letters and logo from the punching bag and also gloves of boxers or even sports reporter interviewing some athletes inside their locker room.

Lonsdale Philippines gave this shirt to me, to try out and review it.

Lonsdale sports clothing is already here in the Philippines and they are available in Toby's Sport, Urban Athlete and also at Zalora. Lonsdale is not just a sports clothing, but also you can wear this as your ordinary clothes or just mix and match with your casual clothes. For me, Lonsdale is perfect for my summer outfit, because the shirt is made of cotton and its perfect for the summer because our skin can breathe more while we are enjoying the outdoor field.

When we dip in a pool at Sofitel Manila, I wore this Lonsdale shirt as my beach and summer outfit.
and it blends with no worries!

I tried doing the Sumo wrestling thing with the Lonsdale shirt and because of its soft and cotton fabric, I can easily defeat some embarrassment in me ahahaha.

Oh well... here's me doing the Street Fighter thing..ala Ken Masters, oh that flying kick burned a lot of fat. The Lonsdale shirt also gives inspiration to the wearer and also motivation to do real sports thing.

Here's my Lonsdale shirt - Kickboxing Fight Club

I'm wearing the XL size shirt and here you can see a 3 color design, it looks cool for me because with heavy printed design will make the shirt more heavy.

Lonsdale clothing in the Philippines - photos by Azrael Coladilla Lonsdale clothing in the Philippines - photos by Azrael Coladilla
This shirt is priced at Php795
Its a bit pricey, but thats okay, this is imported and coming all the way from London.  Its for the sports aficionado and also sports athlete who are very loyal to their sports and also want to own original brand for their sports activity.

I went to Toby's Sports in Robinsons Galeria and did some investigation on what they can offer to a Lonsdale shirt hunter like me. I want more designs and also want to check out their sneakers line.

Upon entering the store, I spotted the boxing equipment line of Lonsdale, I saw the gloves, punching bags and also that punching ball, and also headgear for boxing.

at the Lonsdale section at Toby's, its just a small section and a kiosk type were you can see the different clothing line for men and ladies, they also have the sneakers line which is for casual and fashion, the sneakers of Lonsdale are not for sports, its for athletes who are loyal to brand and want to wear a sports brand even if they are not in a sports training.

The shirt above is cool.

Lonsdale clothing in the Philippines - photos by Azrael Coladilla Lonsdale clothing in the Philippines - photos by Azrael Coladilla
They have shorts and sandos for men and ladies.  The bags are big and it can fit your gear and other clothes for your training.

I like this brand because its a strong brand that reflects a sports like boxing and mixed martial arts, its a sports for men that competes to know who is the strongest and tough. Although that I'm not into sports and not an athlete, I like the brand that embraces also the ordinary lifestyle and breaking in to fashionable clothing. As I said on my blog post title, its not just for sport but also for casual clothing.
