Asia’s Next Top Model 2nd Cycle -phase 1 search for Filipina model to represent the Philippines

image001
Aug 9, 2013 – I have my own favorite of models whenever I attend and cover fashion events, I start to look for my top fave female models, and also male models, Its weird that I like male models too, but that’s for fashion ramp photography for my blog and I’m just amazed that some models are fit into the right style when it comes to their physical and natural features. The Filipino models are top notch and there are a lot of proof already that Pinoy and Pinay models stand out whenever they go head to head with other foreign models, thanks to these reality tv series and contest like the America’s Next Top Model show that inspires many people on how to fulfill their dreams to be a model up to a top notch model. I sometimes watch this reality show whenever I caught this airing in cable tv, and it’s a good educational material for models and also photographers to learn on how things work behind the curtain in the modeling industry.

Million March in Luneta to Scrap Pork  photos by Azrael Coladilla
August 26, 2013 - After I attended my morning meeting in Makati, I took a cab and then went to Luneta Park to join the Million People March against corruption, abolition of pork barrel, and shout out to our government to investigate those who are involved in pocketing the people's fund. This peaceful picnic protest started in a Facebook event page that attract thousands of Facebook users, the attendance grew more after it was highlighted by our local media.

The event happened at the same day that our nation is celebrating “National Heroes Day”, and for this day, we commemorate our national heroes for defending our country and us living Filipinos to fight corruption till the end.

Coverage: Rappler and Google forum - #ThinkPH: the internet, big data and you

P8226812
I joined Enzo of www.juanmanilaexpress.com here in New World Hotel for the Rappler and Google event, “#ThinkPH: the internet, big data and you” , it’s gathering of all online media, journalist, bloggers and netizens. We arrived at around 3pm and here we caught Narciso Reyes,the country manager for Google Philippines. He showed to us the Google Trends website, a new Google site product that detects and show to you the trending topics available online. This can be used to study the behavior of people and what topic they talk about.

Then we got in time for the start of their final topic which is about “Big Data Case Study: Philippine Elections” . Most topics discussed here are about the recent Philippine election, what went wrong, what we need to improve and what actions should we do in the next election. Most people here in the room talk about the upcoming 2016 Presidential election, and this is a good move that we need to prepare early before 2016.

Burger King Chicken Crisp Fillet Sandwich–the FILLET-vorful” chicken sandwich in the market

Burger King Chicken Crips Fillet Burger
August 17, 2013 – After a long land travel that day, I decided to drop by to Burger King’s launch event of their “Chicken Crisp Fillet Sandwich”, dubbed as the FILLET-vorful” chicken sandwich in the market.

I’m curious about the specialty of this crispy chicken sandwich and why is it a big deal to have a big launching event, there are so many chicken sandwich offered by other fast food chains, but for Burger King, its not just a regular chicken sandwich. Okay there’s a catch, but the most important detail here is that the sandwich is priced at Php 55 only for the sandwich, or priced at Php 85 to come in with a regular fries and a Coke, or priced at Php 100 for coming with a regular fries plus Coke with float.

Thanks goodness that this is affordable, but why is it so special ?
hmmm..

Fishman restaurant in BGC
Aug. 9, 2013 – The new resto in BGC opened last Dec 2012 and I missed its grand opening event and also its media event around January 2013. I’m hearing good reviews about the fish resto there in BGC bec. the resto’s main specialty is to serve fish in different pinoy cooking and fusion style. It took me 7 months to visit this resto, I even stumbled the resto when I went to Picadilly bldg few months ago, and I even pin pointed the resto to my wife like a kid shouting…hey! hey! I finally found Fishman restaurant.

P8166747
Aug. 18, 2013 - After an awesome night sleep in one of the rooms here in Holiday Inn Hotel, the most exciting part is to dine in a breakfast buffet next morning.

First we thought that the breakfast buffet is at Rodizio restaurant, then we learned that breakfast will be here at Mequeni restaurant.

Then I learned that the two blogger friends with me haven’t tried Xin Wang Hong Kong Café before, I told them its affordable and the food is great. They said Ok! let's go!

P8146461
Aug. 14, 2013 – When I heard that Creative Labs will have a tech event here in Q Bistro, I replied with a double yes, because I love both brands, the tech brand and also the resto Q Bistro.

IMG_6816
July 28, 2013 – My eyes are totally locked to a view of a bibingka, I super love bibingka and it started when I tasted the yummy Bibingka sold here in the village during Christmas, I’m not a fan before of this baked bread like muffin with cheese and salted egg, but thanks to Bibingkinitan! kiosk in SM Hypermarket Pasig, were I first tasted their bibingka, my world suddenly changed and I started to love bibingka in its diffferent form and taste.

Basta ba bibingka..panalo na sa akin!

Miso-Ten set meals for your excellent cravings for tempura, gyoza and tori kaage

P8136086
Aug. 13, 2013 – There are times that I crave for ramens, tempura and even the smell of a miso soup. But the cravings will never stop unless you fulfill your food desires by visiting your favorite resto. Here in Miso-Ten Ramen and Tempura restaurant, they are now offering a one of kind set meals for your excellent cravings.

Usually, when we order food in a Japanese restaurant, there are times that we still want more food and we always order for an additional food. I noticed that from my wife who orders multiple Japanese food in our table. I’m glad that Japanese food are so heavy in our stomach, that’s why it didn’t get the same joke in America like that Chinese food always makes them hungry after eating it.

P8146456
August 14, 2013 – I will never forget this date, bec. the event of Shakey’s were cancelled and I wasn’t informed about it. Imagine travelling from the South province side and going to the busy street of QC for hours, and you’ll know that no one’s coming bec. the event is cancelled. Just to take away that stress I walked out of that resto and decided to check out that Kowloon House in West Ave. QC.

A visit to the haunted hospital in Clark Air Base

P8156635
I’m posting a separate blog featuring the haunted Clark Air Base Hospital, we went there last week for the a press screening of “I Wouldn’t Go in There”, a new series from National Geographic Channel Asia, this new series is available only in Asia, and it will premiere tomorrow night Aug 23, 2013 at 9pm in Natgeo channel, you can read my blog post about the series here at http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/2013/08/haunted-clark-air-base-hospital-i.html

You can also read there some of the weird experienced we had when we stayed there for almost 1 1/2 hours.

Haunted Clark Air Base Hospital– I really wouldn’t go in there! (Natgeo blog post)

P8156694
Haunted Clark Air Base Hospital feat. in Natgeo’s new series “I Wouldn’t Go in There” this Aug 23, 2013 at 9pm

I joined the press screening for the new series of National Geographic Channel titled “I Wouldn’t Go in There”, the location of our press screening is inside the haunted Clark Air Base Hospital, located in Angeles City, Pampanga. Can you imagine, that we watched a scary series of Natgeo inside a haunted place, and the 1st episode for the new series is the haunted hospital. After that experience, I can say that “I really wouldn’t go in there…ever again” why ? because its haunted by ghost and we experienced lots of eerie things, from ghostly whispers, pssstt calls, shadow figure, and some tech difficulties we felt that gave us a lot of scare. And I can say that this press screening is a lot more spookier than watching a premiere night of a movie of The Conjuring.

New cemented sidewalks and some improvements–Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience 5

New cemented sidewalks and some improvements–Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience 5
August 16. 2013 – I guess this might be my last post for the series about the Southweste Integrated Transport Terminal. But I will blog more if ever I see more improvements and also bad experiences there at the SITT Terminal.

I’m happy for the new developments there at SITT terminal, and after 6 days of my rant about the muddy passenger’s walkway, they now started to repair the sidewalk and brought up a cemented walkway for us commuters. More pogi points to you MMDA!

Trying the city bus terminal for the 1st time - Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience part 4

Trying the city bus terminal for the 1st time - Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience part 4
August 10, 2013 - Last Aug 10, I experienced riding the city bus at the new Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal in Coastal mall, I already tried riding the bus here going home in Cavite and also drop by here via the bus and took a cab at the other side of the road.

I have never tried riding the city bus going to Manila, or going to Pasay MRT, I heard that there are bus now going to Fairview area, taking the Manila road passing Quirino and Lawton, that’s good news to us,but I’m not sure how many bus that are available bound to Fairview area that takes Manila road as their route. Most bus that I saw at the city bus terminal are ordinary bus or bus with no aircon, and most bus there are taking Leveriza-Ayala area going to the North, or buses that takes EDSA as their launch pad to scrap the pavement going to the North.

Under the Tropical Storm Maring in Cavite–flood areas and shopping for supplies in SM

typhoon maring
August 20, 2013 - Every tropical storm and typhoon we are always prepared for the things to come when a massive rain and flood hit our area in Cavite, but this tropical storm Maring is so different and we just learned that the rain he gave for 2 1/2 days are equal to a massive amount of rain for one month and we just experienced that here only in Cavite. You can check out the news report of the rain fall here --

“During the habagat deluge in 2012, rainfall at Sangley Point reached 354.2 mm in the 24 hours ending 8 a.m. on August 7, 2012, according to PAGASA weather division head Robert Sawi.
In contrast, rainfall at the same location for the same period on August 20, 2013, reached 475.4 mm. This is even more than the average expected rainfall for the entire month, or 457.4 mm.” – GMA News

With big rains coming in the city of Cavite for almost 3 days, our nearby towns are super flooded and we in the middle are stranded and there’s no way out of the city if you plan to go to Manila and if you go to Manila you’ll get a welcome greeting from big floods and also traffic jams.

The walking fruit store

IMG_6963
We were walking here in the village going to the bakery when I spotted this fruit vendor in a side car bicycle, I saw that he sell lots of avocado and rambutan fruits. I got attracted and bought 1/2 a kilo of the two fruits.

I’m not good in picking the best fruits, but I remember that I need it for my body. That’s why I bought and will try these fruits if they are good. The vendor told me that the avocados are already ripe and ready to eat it.

Swensen’s the ultimate sundae experience in SM MOA

P8025462
Its my third time here in Swensen’s SM MOA and after our viist in WOFEX 2013, I brought my wife here to have a little break and also try their awesome sundaes. It’s her first time here at Swensen’s and I always tell her that the sundaes here are good! and after a year of curiosity, we are finally here!

Aling Tonya’s Seafood Paluto in Baclaran

P8025283
I heard of the seaside mini restos in coastal road when I was young, my parents always go there for a side trip and eat during midnight times and then they will bring home lobsters cooked in Szechuan style, my mom told me that they bought it in a paluto resto in seaside, and its located near the sea in coastal road, right after Baclaran. Manila Bay is not that polluted those years ( late 80’s and early 90’s), but then I heard that the paluto in seaside transferred to a new area, which is located in Baclaran, they moved there because Manila Bay started to stink and its not healthy already eating a good food with a foul smell coming from the sea, that’s the time when Manila Bay started to die, thanks to garbage pollution.

My RC Cola story - long travel and cola thirst

P8146570
Anyone heard of RC Cola, I’m sure this brand of cola is already been encountered by many people already, whenever brand X is out then we can shift to brand Y, its not the usual 2nd choice but for other people its their first choice of cola. It’s a bit weird that I thought that RC Cola is a local brand that is surviving for many years beating brand X and other cola brands with alphanumeric initials and funny titles, but I noticed that RC Cola is still here, and everywhere. I also noticed that they printed on their label that the cola is established since 1905 in Columbus, Georgia, USA. Okay that explains that it is an imported brand bottled here in the Philippines.

World Food Expo 2013–my photo coverage


P8025440
Aug 2, 2013 – We got a time to visit the the 13th World Food Expo 2013 in SMX last Aug 2, it was the 3rd day of the food expo and the only schedule we have is Saturday, and that’s a day before the last day of the food expo. I went there to cover it for the 1st time and I’m with my blog partner-my wife, we got lucky that we scored some complimentary pass and an all access ID of the WOFEX 2013, the event is taking place in two kinds of venue - in SMX and also in World Trade Center. Our plan that day is to visit both venues, but we got tired after strolling around the booth area and talks to some franchising experts at WOFEX 2013.

Our main agenda is to check out the food business trends and also consult for a franchise business.

Made in Candy Philippines - new candy store and attraction in SM Megamall

Made in Candy SM Megamall
I call it a new attraction because its fun to watch how the candy makers of Made in Candy make those sweet candy sticks from plain candy mold to colorful candies. The Made in Candy store in SM Megamall now attracts lots of candy fans and also new candy eaters. I tried it..not too sweet..but the flavor is very yummy. I heard that the watermelon is one of the best seller.

Internet is back #globe

IMG_7550
It's payback time!  time to kill some backlogs and finish all those deadlines. Internet is brought back to life again by Globe, their tech guys visited us yesterday here at home and they fixed our two internet lines (yup,we have two accounts). They also changed the modem of our 1st connection, while the 2nd connection was fixed too. I'm not sure what happened, they said that they are enhancing the system but it looks like that they sabotage their own system and instead of improving it.

Just imagine, that many people will be affected when they do a slackish job, tech guys are 2 days late and we missed lots of deadlines already.I know they are doing their best, but I hope next time, when they say they will arrive...they must arrive here, or they can just inform us right away if there's more problem encountered. The problem with Globe is that....they are not transparent to their customers who are waiting for an answer for hours or days or maybe weeks.

No internet at home for two days bec. Globe haven't fixed yet their line problems. We are here in @officialstarbucksph cavite doing mobile office :)

Its our 3rd day here at home for having no internet, I'm already behind schedule and missing lots of deadlines already and most of the blog posting are already out of date, and my coverage of Kobe Bryant in Manila is already 1 day expired. Yesterday me and my wife decided to work for some hours in Starbucks here in Cavite, and at home we try to survive by connecting a shared network to my Smart Rocket Wifi, its hard to get a good signal here in our area, so we work full time once we get a nice "HSPA" connection.

Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience part 3

Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience 3
Aug 9 – Yesterday, I went to the new terminal again, it was holiday and I expect that there might be few commuters in there, but I saw that there’s a long line in every station. After my appointment in BGC again, I rode the taxi going to SM MOA, because I want to ride the shuttle there and try to avoid the new terminal bec. I don’t want to walk again inside the haunted mall.

It was traffic in Pasay Edsa, and I suspect that the Victory Liner there are causing the massive traffic that starts to build up all the way to Magallanes, so I told the taxi driver to just take me to the new terminal and instead of wasting our time in crawling traffic in Pasay EDSA.

Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience part 2

Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal experience 2
Aug 8 – Last Thursday, I went to BGC for another event coverage and this time I dropped off at the new Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal in Coastal mall in Paranaque City. I have no choice but to take the new bus scheme. There’s some jeepneys that travels to Baclaran, but I’m not very comfortable in taking the jeep during day time.

my adventure starts here when I rode the bus coming from Cavite and all buses will stop at the end of the Coastal road.

Ramen!!! in Tokyo Tokyo restaurants


I just saw this in an Instagram post by earthlngorgeous and went0t   I discovered from their gram post that there's ramen already in Tokyo Tokyo, or maybe I just didn't noticed it in the past that they have ramen.

Braised Pork, Spicy Chicken and Tempura Miso Ramen according to @wentot 
and then Earth said that each ramen is priced at Php150.

I hope its available here in SM Bacoor, because of this.. we will go there now to eat this ramen!
omg..if meron ramen dito,bibili na ko lagi

Trying out the new Provincial bus scheme in Coastal via Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal


993358_620377924649292_791299022_n
I tried taking the bus yesterday on the way to BGC, I prayed for some good luck that I won't be stuck in traffic in Baclaran, you know that yesterday was Wednesday, it means its Baclaran church day - there's traffic infront of the church and also lots of private vehicles blocking the other side of the road, that prevents the bus and public transport to drop off the passengers there, so instead, they drop off the passengers along the highway - that gives big traffic for a bit of 20-30 minutes depends on the flow of vehicles in Baclaran-Roxas Blvd. Also one big problem that I tried to face is the new provincial bus scheme that was launched last Tuesday, all provincial bus coming from Cavite and Batangas will have their last stop only at the end of the Coastal road highway, this opened up a new terminal in Coastal mall, the new terminal is called - "Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal" (SITT).
