Where I’ve Been

Monday, December 29, 2014 0 Comments

We’re down to the last 3 days of the year. Can you believe it? Oh and today is officially the last work day of 2014. I think no one is in a working mode though. I bet, most will be clock watching until it’s time to go home again. I relish the thought of enjoy a 6-day holiday break once more. Woot! Oh and looking at the date stamp of my last blog post, it’s the longest I’ve gone without posting anything here. My apologies for that. I’m also taking a look at my post counter at the sidebar and by far, 2014 chronicles the fewest blog posts I’ve published. It hasn’t been a good year for me. I’m only too ready to say goodbye to it. So what have I been up to?

Printable Doll Ornaments

For days now, we have been feeling extreme traffic in the Metro (even on off-peak hours). The daily torment of bad traffic has now more than doubled the travel time to and fro. Sometimes, I would just prefer to go straight home from work rather than suffer through wasted time crawling through congested streets. The Christmas Rush is definitely here. Everyone is just out and about.

The Walk Thrills in this Teaser Trailer

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 , , , 0 Comments

I've always admired Joseph Gordon-Levitt for his capability to choose roles that are not only physically challenging but memorable as well. This is especially true in his latest upcoming film, The Walk. The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis and is based from French high wire artist Philippe Petit's book, "To Reach the Clouds".

Deadly Puzzles: Toymaker

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 , , 0 Comments

I don't usually scour the Google Play Store for hidden-object kind of games except for the times when my mom needs new games on her tablet. This is more her kind of game than mine but when I saw Deadly Puzzles: Toymaker and read the game description, I couldn't help but be interested in trying it out. The game promised to be more than just a hidden-object game but also a kind of adventure game with psychological and crime thrills splashed in. True enough, when I first loaded the game, I was greeted by this loading screen. Already, those dolls freaked me out and all the more did I expect for the game to be worth my time.

The Epic Conclusion to The Hobbit Trilogy

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 , , 0 Comments

Probably the most awaited film this December is the third and final film for The Hobbit Trilogy. Finally, Bilbo’s journey is about to come to an end and what a spectacular end it’s shaping up to be. The last film with the title, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies is set to be released in cinemas on December 12th. As early as now, I’ve seen several cinemas already selling tickets to the movie.

Christmas comes to Springfield and Quahog

Tuesday, December 09, 2014 , , 0 Comments

The only two games that I’ve been regularly playing in my tablet for the longest time are Simpsons: Tapped Out and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. Both games are free from the Google Play Store. For each holiday, you can expect a game update which gives you additional games and holiday exclusive characters to unlock in each game. This Christmas it’s no different. Both games are now very festive and very much emanating the Holiday Spirit.

Christmas in Springfield
The holiday update for Simpsons: Tapped Out involves a lot of Christmas Elves. They’ve practically invaded and Santa has selected residents working hard for him at the Toy Factory.

Guess who will be the Sorcerer Supreme

Monday, December 08, 2014 , , 0 Comments

One of the movies coming out during Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Doctor Strange. When talk of this movie came out months back, I wasn’t at all excited that Joaquin Phoenix was being tapped for the role. I didn’t think that he looked the part and that he was right for the role. So guess what? It’s now official, Benedict Cumberbatch will be the Sorcerer Supreme! He is now the latest actor to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe which I’m sure will thrill his fans worldwide.

Things you can do at Island Cove Hotel & Leisure Park

Thursday, December 04, 2014 , , , 0 Comments

If you've been wanting a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and you don't even have time to make travel plans or let alone pack for a long trip, here's somewhere you can go to that doesn't require a very long drive. I know you must be thinking Tagaytay or Laguna but nope, this place I will recommend is just in Cavite.

You may have already heard of Island Cove and have probably visited it at one point in the past but I think it's a great time to visit it again now. To give you an idea of just how near it is, it's just 15 minutes from the Mall of Asia. Yet, the place can already give your a temporary refugee from stress. It is with this thought that had Druce and me driving away from the Metro traffic and into a nice weekend getaway.

Things you can do at Island Cove

This is a list of the things I got to do while I was at Island Cove, there are a few more activities that I didn't get to try and could be a few more reasons why I should go back.

1 Wildlife Sanctuary
This is the best thing that I like about Island Cove, is that it provides a home for animals that have been otherwise confiscated or unwanted by their owners. Take not that this is not a zoo but a wildlife habitat. What did I do here? Let me tell you in photos.

Say Hello to More Productivity with the 2015 BDJ Power Planner

Tuesday, December 02, 2014 , , 0 Comments

I had been an avid user of the Belle de Jour Power Planners ever since it came out. It had been my constant companion through the years in planning my days, keeping me organized and helping me to visualize my goals. I had loved the design then and I'm loving the dedication and effort they've been putting into it each year. It was also the first planner to ever offer lots and lots of discount coupons from partnered merchants. In short, it's a planner too good to pass up. Now, I'm more than happy to get my hands on the 2015 BDJ Power Planner that is much improved and more geared to productivity than ever.
