Free Android App Review: Pixlr Express

One of the best photography apps that I’ve tried is Pixlr-o-matic from Autodesk. I loved it because it has numerous lomo-like filters. So when I saw that they’ve released a new app, I couldn’t wait to try it out. Here’s my first run-through with the app.

 

pixlr-express
Despite the word “express” in Pixlr Express, there’s nothing express in the initial use of it. Upon launching the app, I immediately got a notice that I wasn’t online or connected to the internet. That immediately made me frown because I want to be able to use the app without having to have my phone connect to the net. Then I found out that since it’s my first use, the filters and effects have not been pre-downloaded into the app itself.  Initial use requires for you to download each first.

Owls, Owls and more Owls. Woot!

Friday, November 30, 2012 , 0 Comments

I’m crazy about anything that has an owl design on it. I have cocktail owl rings in my collection, as well as pendants. If I see a post-it or a notebook with an owl design, I’ll immediately buy it. I’ve been growing my owl collection steadily for the past months. Yesterday Tita Noemi gave me so much more to add to my collection. I can’t wait to use them! Look, I have an owl car air freshener, a planner, hand sanitizer, earrings, key holder and even a lip gloss. Hooray! I’m one happy owl collector. :)

The Art of Yulia Brodskaya

Friday, November 30, 2012 0 Comments

When I wrote about some artists with paper as their medium for creating fantastic works of art, I didn’t know that Yulia Brodskaya will become big. She’s deserving of all the success because although many other artists have tried to copy her work, hers is still the original and the best. Looking at her site proves just how much she’s improving with her art. Many big brands have commissioned her to do some really great pieces of advertising. She has a masterful command of color and her conceptual vision is just incredible.

Creative Light bulb Packaging

Here’s a unique twist for the boring boxes that light bulbs usually come in. These look great huh? Who would have thought that these contain light bulbs in the first place. The animal packaging can also double up as great décor pieces afterwards.

Syoss Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Monday, November 26, 2012 , 0 Comments

These are the next products that I tried out from my first BDJ Box. I'm very particular when it comes to hair products and there's a precious few that I've come to trust. So you might say that I have very high standards. Syoss is not a known brand here in the Philippines but even so I was pretty excited to try this out.
syoss-antidandruff-shampoo-conditioner

The bottle design is a bit too masculine for me but I however like its shape. I think the manufacturers were going for a unisex look but if I were a consumer going down the shampoo aisle of a grocery store, due to the minimalistic design, I will tend not to notice it among racks of other brands with bottles having brighter colors.

WhatFont: Discover the Font on a Webpage

Monday, November 26, 2012 , , 0 Comments

If you’re a graphic artist or a designer like me, then you’re always on the lookout for fonts for a graphic project or typography design. It has happened more than once when I came across a website with a nice font that I don’t know the name of. So what do I do to find out what type of font they used? I would go through dozens of font galleries no matter how tedious, hoping to find the exact font or at least find a similar one. If the search is fruitless, I would go to this LJ site that I found to ask some graphic artists if they recognized the font type.

It’s a good thing that Chengyin Lui thought of creating WhatFont to help us. Mr. Lui is just currently an undergraduate Computer Science major and from the looks of it, he’s looking to have a bright future. WhatFont is just one of the projects that he’s working on. WhatFont can be installed to a browser as an extension for Chrome and Safari and a bookmarklet for Firefox, Safari, IE and Opera. Since I’m using Chrome as my browser, I got to try it a few moments ago. First you need to install the extension through the Chrome Webstore. [LINK]

It’s pretty easy to use too. Upon loading the webpage in which you find the font that you like, just click on the WhatFont extension button on the browser. Then point the mouse cursor to the font that you like.

Blushing Cupcakes Cafe

Monday, November 26, 2012 0 Comments

Last weekend, we made a quaint discovery at the Ortigas Home Depot when we found out that Starbucks was too full to accommodate two more patrons. The Blushing Cupcakes Café can be found at the side of Starbucks and what makes it a delightful find was that not only was it a cupcake store but it also serves affordable meals and a great cup of coffee.
blushing-cupcakes-cafe

The interiors of the blushing cupcakes café is small and cozy but I love how colorful it is inside. The main focal point of the space is the serving counter which was adorned with striped accents. Although it's small, there are three seating types available.

New Images from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Sunday, November 25, 2012 , 0 Comments

Before we bid farewell to the year 2012, we have one more epic movie to look forward to. Come December 13th, we’ll get to see Middle Earth once again and relive the story of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. If you’ve seen the previous Lord of the Rings movie trilogy then you’d understand why there’s so much hype behind this movie. For me personally, I can’t wait to behold the fantastical sets, the wonderful costumes and the characters I’ve only read about in the book.

Sunday, November 25, 2012 0 Comments

While waiting for lunch to be served in a few minutes, I happened to browse this online shop. What a find it is. Priceless Beauty offers so many beautiful accessories that are just wonderfully affordable. Who says that to be fashionable you need to spend so much precious money? I strongly believe that if you have enough fashion sense and creativity, you can pull off any look that you want without breaking the bank. It is with the help of little gems like this online store that we can achieve this.

Paranormal Activity 4 Movie Review

Sunday, November 25, 2012 , 0 Comments

movie-reviewIf you've been an avid reader of this blog, then you'd notice how few horror movies I have reviewed since I started blogging. As much as I resolve to try to, I've never really been fond of them. I don't block them off entirely though, I do get to watch one once in a while. So a little short from the festivities of Halloween, there I was watching Paranormal Activity 4 during the press screening.

paranormal-activity-4-movie-review
PLOT The timeline for this movie is five years after Katie abducted Hunter from his home. In a suburban neighborhood, strange things began to happen when Alex (Kathryn Newton) started noticing a strange kid in her backyard. Wanting to feel more secure in her home, Alex secretly started to record what's been going on in her house.

Hit Play

Sunday, November 25, 2012 , , 0 Comments

Despite the hectic schedule that I have for each week, I make sure that I still get to relax during the weekends. One of the ways that I get to do so is to play video games for several hours during the day. Since along with sleep, I consider getting to play a luxury, I'm very choosy about which games I play. They have to be really good and worth my time.

video-games
When I do get to play, I do get engrossed in the game for a while especially when it's really good. It's also an added plus to be able to see additional art, lore and webisodes available for a particular game. These actually make me appreciate the game more. Right now I'm in the middle of playing Borderlands 2. I'm halfway through to the level cap. I'm also about to start playing Telltale's The Walking Dead. I've heard so many good things about it and I'm crazy about the TV series as well.

Last night, a minute after midnight I was being serenaded by a birthday song. This is why I love birthdays, they never fail to put a smile on one’s face and to be reminded that yes, you are special. I’m optimistic about the day ahead and I woke up to a number of birthday greetings from my friends and family. I have several birthday wishes this year and we’ll see if they’ll come true. :)

O’sonho Portuguese Fusion Restobar

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 0 Comments

Jupiter St. in Makati is a haven of restaurants if you’re looking for somewhere to have dinner within the Makati Central Business District while waiting out the rush hour traffic or just to have somewhere to treat yourself to after a stressful day at work. Last Friday, the restaurant of choice was O’sonho Portuguese Fusion Restobar and I realized as I walked into the small restaurant that I haven’t had Portuguese food before. O’sonho shares parking with 3 other establishments and it can get filled up pretty quickly however, you can also opt for street parking at night.

With the rising trend in various yoga and dance studios nowadays, looks like Nike has come up with a new baby. Their new product is the Nike Studio Wrap which is specifically designed for women doing workouts of yoga, Pilates or dance. While they recognize that it had been a long practice to do these workouts using exercise mats, it doesn’t mean that there can be no room for innovation.

Of all the Fast and the Furious movies released, I really enjoyed the reunion of the cast and the addition of Dwayne Johnson in Fast Five. Just when we thought that it will be the last one, then comes the announcement for a 6th one. Vin Diesel has personally released these images in his Facebook page.

We haven’t seen Brad Pitt on the big screen for a while and his much anticipated movie World War Z has been plagued with delays. It’s good to see that the trailer has been released though. In the meantime, we’ll get to see Brad Pitt first in a movie called Killing Them Softly which will be shown exclusively in Ayala Cinemas starting December 5.

The film also stars Richard Jenkins (“The Cabin in the Woods”), James Gandolfini (“The Taking of Pelham 123”), Ray Liotta (“Narc”), Scoot McNairy (“Argo”) and Ben Mendelsohn (“The Dark Knight Rises”). The basic plot for the film involves Pitt playing the character of a police enforcer who was hired to track down three guys who pulled a heist at a mob-protected card game.

Jeedjard Chewy Tamarind Candy

As I’m writing this post, I’m wishing that I have a plastic tub of Jeedjard Tamarind with Spicy Plum to snack on. As it turns out, my supply had already run out. When I first tasted Jeedjard chewy tamarind candy, I excitedly tweeted about how good it was. Jeedjard chewy tamarind candies are bite-sized seedless candies made from fresh tamarinds grown in Petchaboon in Thailand. It is delightfully addicting, fat-free, contains calcium and has Vitamins A,B and C.

Robot Family Decals

Friday, November 16, 2012 0 Comments

I’ve spent countless hours on the road and in traffic and believe me I’ve seen so many family decals on cars. You know those stick figures at the backs of cars which show the members of the family that owns it? I’ve always joked that IF I ever got one, my whole window would be full of stick figures of the dogs that we owned. Here’s a nicer version of family car decals though and a great idea too. Check out the Robot Family Car Decals.

Add more Fiber to your Daily Diet with Megafiber

Thursday, November 15, 2012 0 Comments

I’m sure you’ve all heard that dietary fiber is important to your everyday diet. We can readily get it from vegetables and food rich in fiber or through supplements. Fiber IS important, but do you really know how important it is? Not only is fiber important for people suffering from constipation but it also lowers the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Of the fibers that we can readily ingest, there are two kinds – soluble and insoluble.

Benefits of a High Fiber Diet

  • normalizes your bowl movement
  • helps maintain bowl integrity and health
  • lowers your blood cholesterol levels
  • helps control blood sugar levels
  • aids in weight loss

One of the best sources of soluble fibers in the market is Megafiber. It is rich in Psyllium fiber which was proven by experts to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and a healthy heart. One teaspoon of Megafiber is equal to 14 tablespoons of oat bran.

Cute Dog Bowls from Ore Originals

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 , 0 Comments

Here are some cute doggie bowls that you can give as a gift to your pets this holiday season. Who says they can’t celebrate the holidays too? The bowls that I chose have matching mats that are just too adorable to resist. Take note though that these are ceramic bowls, if you have a dog who has a tendency to scrape and turn over his bowl, then these might not be recommended and you might have to opt for the metal bowls instead. For behaved dogs though, they’re in for a treat.

Hedgehog Phone Holder

Right now what I have on my desk that holds my phone up is a phone holder that looks like a pink high heeled shoe. It was given to me by a friend who went to Singapore and who knew that I loved anything girly. Then I realized how nifty it is. Now my phone just stays in one place and I don’t have to keep looking at it to check if I had missed any messages. It’s sitting upright so I can immediately see it light up even when I’m engrossed in my work.

At home though, it’s another story. I use my phone as an alarm clock and well, I just keep it near my pillow. There are times that I’ve missed hearing the alarm because the phone has slid under my pillow or worse it also ends up entangled in the blankets with me. Sometimes browsing through Neatorama gives me a glimpse of really cute stuff out there. Take this hedgehog phone holder for instance, overloaded with cuteness right? Well, I’d love to have this or something similar on the shelf beside my bed. Then maybe my phone won’t end up under me anymore. Smile with tongue out

Awesome Dragon Cake

Tuesday, November 13, 2012 , 0 Comments

We’re almost halfway through November and what I’m looking forward to next month is seeing the first part of the movie The Hobbit. I’d love to be transported back into Middle Earth again. I’ve also done a marathon of all the three Lord of the Rings movies last month. The Hobbit gets me thinking about Smaug which I think we’ll only get to see during the last installment of the movie. On the subject of dragons though, wouldn’t it be awesome to have a dragon cake?

white-dragon-cake
This White Dragon Cake for instance was just too elegant and too pretty to eat. Kudos to the baker and cake artist who did this. What a fine job! Sadly though, I couldn’t trace anymore who to give it credit to. So if you have information where and who baked this awesome cake, do let me know.

Meet the Cute Racers from Sugar Rush in Wreck-It Ralph

Monday, November 12, 2012 , 0 Comments

Wreck-It Ralph (read my movie review here) is one of the best movies I’ve seen this year and while it’s still showing in theaters, I strongly urge you guys to see it. One of the games featured in the movie is Sugar Rush and you’ll just fall in-love with this candyland because of all its bright colors and candy-inspired terrain. I won’t be at all surprised if you get a nasty craving for something sugary sweet after seeing the movie or even reading this post.

I like to share with you the designs they did for the race carts and characters from Sugar Rush. I’m willing to bet that even the artists had serious fun creating these designs. They’re incredibly creative!

  • Taffyta Muttonfudge – best feature is the racing helmet and the pink hard candy wheels of her cart.

Character Banners from Gangster Squad

Monday, November 12, 2012 , 0 Comments

Warner Bros has just released the character banners for the upcoming movie Gangster Squad directed by Ruben Fleisher. The banners feature the foremost characters in the film played by Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Although it’s still quite some time before we see this film in the theaters, it’s shaping up as a good movie to watch out for next year. It’s slated to be released in Philippine theaters on January 23, 2013.

Gangster Squad tells the story of how a secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling) set out to destroy the gangster empire of the Brooklyn mob king Mickey Cohen (Penn).  The character banners can be seen below. As always, you can click on the images for a larger view.

Cut Book Art

Sunday, November 11, 2012 0 Comments

Being the nerd that I was (and I still am), I used to spend a lot of time at the library whenever I had a free period during my grade school and high school days. I loved looking at old hardbound books that had illustrations in them. They ranged from fairytale books to dated encyclopedias. I remember admiring illustrations within the books and then wishing that I could draw like that too.

Alexander Korzer Robinson had a different appreciation for these type of books though, through an enormous amount of creativity, he’s giving old encyclopedias new life by cutting out several pictures from the inside of the book to create a unique diorama with a unified theme. Just take a look at these creations.

Wreck-It Ralph Movie Review

Sunday, November 11, 2012 , 0 Comments

When I'm playing a video game, I've never really given any thought about the bad guys, only that I have to beat them to get to the next level but Wreck-It Ralph gave me an interesting look (albeit imaginary) at how bad guys in video games live like. Wreck-It Ralph has just given Disney another hit under its belt. Although it's been said that Wreck-It Ralph is a movie made for gamers, it will be enjoyed by everyone else too. However, it's more amusing if you recognize the characters in the movie from the video games.

wreck-it-ralph-movie-review
PLOT
After realizing that he wants more than just being the bad guy in a video game, Wreck-It Ralph sets off to prove that he can be a hero. What does it take to be a hero? Getting a gold medal according to the citizens in the Fix-It Felix video game. So crossing over to Hero's duty, Ralph (John C. Reilly) acquires the much needed medal but at a price. He unknowingly led a Cy-bug into Sugar Rush land. In Sugar Rush land, Ralph's golden medal was stolen by Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), a glitch. Sharing similar goals, Ralph and Vanellope worked together to prove themselves worthy of being crowned heroes while a hoard of cy-bugs threatened to overrun the land of Sugar Rush.

Seeing this movie is very timely as I've just watched Armageddon for the nth time during the long weekend. We're all so used to seeing movies where the lead characters save the world from the asteroid but Seeking a Friend for the End of the World makes us look at what would happen if the plan failed and the asteroid hurtled to us anyway.

Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub Review

Sunday, November 04, 2012 , 0 Comments

It's very timely that I ran out of a facial scrub right when I received one inside my BDJ Box. I've been using Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub for a week now and I'm pretty happy with it. Let me share to you some of my initial observations for this product.

facial-scrub-review
The facial scrub is packaged in a tube with colors of white, red and blue. I'm not too crazy about the design though and could use some more femininity. However, if this was intended to be unisex then I guess it is okay. Upon opening the cap you'll immediately notice that the scrub smells good and very pleasant which is something that's really nice as opposed to unscented facial scrubs.

What I like about the Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub is that you only need a pea-sized amount on your palm to put on your face. Even with just a pea-sized dollop, the scrub still developed a thick lather when you apply the product on your face.

After washing my face with the scrub, my skin felt very smooth and supple. The other good thing is that I didn't breakout and unlike other scrubs, this one didn't make me oily during the middle of the day. Even my sister likes it so much.
So will I continue to use this product? You bet.
Verdict: 4.0 of 5

Sunday, November 04, 2012 , 0 Comments

The first time that I saw this movie, I fell in-love with it. After that, I have watched it over and over and have never grown tired of it. The good news is that come December 5, Finding Nemo will be seen for the first time in Digital 3d. The film has been remastered so that the ocean environments will be amazing to watch. Even Bruce the White Shark’s teeth will be frightening to behold on the big screen.

A Peek at the Wicked Witch from Oz the Great and Powerful

Walt Disney Pictures reveals the first part of a movie poster triptych which depicts the Wicked Witch. Oz the Great and Powerful is the latest project from Sam Raimi which stars James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis. Far from the Oz story that we’ve come to know of, this is a look into the past and the humble beginnings of Oscar Diggs (Franco) before he became the most powerful wizard.

Free Android Games: Coin Dozer vs Coin Machine

Friday, November 02, 2012 , 0 Comments

I’ve figured it out, what makes coin games so addictive to play is the rhythmic up and down motion of the slider, kinda like a hypnotizing pendulum. I’m going to be comparing Coin Dozer and Coin Machine which are both available for free in the Play Store. Both games have similar gameplays. It’s pretty simple actually, you just have to coax as many coins as possible into the collecting bin by feeding coins into the tray. The slider then pushes the coins as they collect in the tray towards the collecting bin. When you’ve collected enough, you’ll be able to trigger bonuses, level ups and prize coins.

Coin Dozer

If you look at the Play Store, you’ll see that of the two games that I’m comparing here, Coin Dozer have many more users than Coin Machine. I’ve played it for a bit and it’s more challenging because of the limited amount of coin fill-up. This also takes a bit more time.

Skyfall Movie Review

Thursday, November 01, 2012 , 0 Comments

While writing this post, the Bond movie theme is playing in my head. Some say that Daniel Craig is the best James Bond so far and there’s still one more Bond film that we can expect to see him in. I guess what makes Daniel Craig’s James Bond so different is that he added a rougher and more masculine feel to the character. It’s a fresher look on a classic character that’s been loved for many generations over.

PLOT
When MI6 falls under attack under an unknown threat that seems to be targeting M, James Bond must step out of the shadows and into the line of fire to find out who’s behind it and to eliminate the threat. What follows will make Bond re-think his loyalties and challenge what makes him good as an agent.
