Aboard the Spaceship Avalon in the Passengers Movie

Friday, December 30, 2016 , 0 Comments

What if you’ve been given a chance to have a do-over of your life, a completely clean slate to start out as you live the rest of your life but it will be on another planet and all your friends and loved ones will be long dead and gone? Will you take it? Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) had that chance and he took it, along with 5,000 other people who wanted a fresh start. Aboard the spaceship, Avalon, they were enroute to a new relocation planet called Homestead II. It was a planet similar to Earth minus the overpopulation, the pollution and the decay that was already killing the natural resources.

The Great Wall Starring Matt Damon

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 , , , 0 Comments

Even though the film, The Great Wall was met with negativity and backlash when it was first announced, nothing stopped production and come next year (that’s just in a few days), we’ll be able to watch this Matt Damon film. I’ve always been able to filter out negative publicity and critics, I want to see for myself how he’ll fit into this Asian-themed film. After all, I enjoyed Keanu Reeve’s performance in 47 Ronin.

Not a Tim Ho Wan Newbie Anymore

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 0 Comments

Okay before you shake your head in disbelief, yes it was just a few weeks ago when I had my first taste of the dishes offered at Tim Ho Wan. I remember when it first opened at SM Megamall Fashion Hall and people were so eager to line up outside the restaurant for hours. I heard about it but I didn’t join the bandwagon. So one day when I finally got the chance to, I finally saw and tasted for myself what the fuss was about.

What’s your Comfort Food?

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 , 0 Comments

Whoever formed the concept of comfort food probably just wanted an excuse to be able to indulge in high caloric food. That was what I was thinking while having lunch all by my lonesome after completing our Christmas gift list. I was feeling mighty stressed from my art project commissions and I was feeling a bit bad that I was doing all the shopping on my own and without my significant other. So I headed to Tenya and ordered my favorite comfort food. Take a guess.

Planners Filled Out

Tuesday, December 27, 2016 , 0 Comments

My Christmas weekend didn’t turn out as planned, no thanks no Super Typhoon Nock-Ten and its fateful decision to visit the country on Christmas day itself. It sure didn’t bring any gifts. So I just ended up having a quiet day with my mom and our dogs at home. I also excited filled out my BDJ Planners while the weather shifted from gloomy to a bit sunny outside.

Brought to us by the studio who made Despicable Me, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and the Minions, the next animation in this line-up presents a world much like ours but is inhabited by animals. Leading the cast is Buster (Matthew McConaughey) as he creates a singing competition in order to save his theater that has fallen on hard times.

Collateral Beauty Stirs Emotions Next Month

Tuesday, December 27, 2016 , , , 0 Comments

One of the movies that I’ve been hearing so much about lately is Collateral Beauty and since there’s is still a local film fest going on, we’ll be able to see this film as one of the movies welcoming the New Year. Collateral Beauty stars Will Smith who plays the character of Howard. Howard was a successful executive and heads his own company but the death of his six-year-old daughter puts him into an emotional seclusion. He withdraws from human contact and only writes letters to Love, Time and Death.

Bookmarking for Instagram

Wednesday, December 21, 2016 0 Comments

One of the apps that I frequently use everyday is Instagram. Although I don’t get to post as much now as I used to because of my heavy work schedule, I still enjoy browsing through my feed during work breaks. One feature that I’ve been wishing for Instagram to have is to have the ability to save liked photos. I guess there are some image rights and such that prevented them from including this feature in the original app so what happens is that most people just resort to saving screenshots of the posts that they like.

Check out this Cool Vulpix Plushie

Tuesday, December 20, 2016 , 0 Comments

Given the recent Christmas update for Pokemon Go, I'm sure some of you have started to play the game again. Although the game has lost majority of its popularity in the past months, there are still some hardcore gamers out there. I've also played the game once in a while but unfortunately, my old Zen Fone 2 has a bug where I can't launch the game immediately on date. I'd have to use wifi first then switch to data for me to be able to play the game farther than my wifi router source. Told the devs and even the ASUS support about this but still didn't get a good work around for the issue. Anyway, I play whenever I can and I really really want to be able to catch a Vulpix. It's one of my favorite Pokemons and up until now, it's still elusive to me.

Good news to all who love the color green. Pantone has recently announced its Color of the Year for 2017 and it’s Pantone 15-0343 Greenery. The color green has always symbolized freshness and hope.

Experiencing Rogue One

Monday, December 19, 2016 , 0 Comments

Disclaimer: This post narrates my reaction to the current movie reigning at the cinemas and how an Imprerial Droid probably stole the hearts of Star Wars fans.
Last week, we braved the crazy traffic due to the holiday rush and made a beeline to go to SM Megamall (one of the go-to shopping destinations of most Christmas shoppers in Manila) just to attend the press premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I knew that it would be the last major movie premiere of the year before the Manila Film Festival and I surely didn’t want to miss it. Plus it’s a Star Wars movie for crying out loud.

Life Saver Watch: Helping Cancer Patients

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 , 0 Comments

For my birthday last month, one of the gifts that my sister and her boyfriend gave to me was a Life Saver watch that she bought from the Love Hope Faith Giftshop. I was surprised to be receiving a watch from my little sis and when I read the product description that came along with the watch, I understood.

Check Out the IMAX Posters for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Thursday, December 08, 2016 , , 0 Comments

I can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic at these newly released IMAX Posters for the upcoming film – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The style is reminiscent of the old Star Wars movie posters with a bit of modern touch. The movie will open in theaters on December 15th and has now been re-mastered into the image and sound quality of an IMAX 3D Experience.

Hello December

It’s already seven days into the new month and I know I’m only just now posting to say hello. It’s been busy busy for me. Don’t worry though, it’s the good kind of busy. There are so many calligraphy orders and illustration projects on my plate aside from my day job and that’s been keeping my calendar and to-do list constantly full these days. Oh and for your art fix, I’ve re-launched my art blog into its new home. Head on over to Cher’s Creative Space and give me a follow. I’m excited to be filling that up with great art posts.
