Not Feeling Well....

Geez! I'm not feeling well today maybe because of the summer's heat. The heat of the sun is totally burning since the month of April started. My head is like heavy as a coconut fruit and I'm perspiring like a fountain, is it too exxagerating? hahahaha! I'm just saying because I'm not used to getting sick. Well, to prevent me from getting it worst, I already took my med and watch the latest trailer of Transformers: Dark of the Moon as my cure.

Check it out guys! It's totally a bad ass trailer so far!

The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft on the Moon and must race against the Decepticons to find it and learn its secrets, which could turn the tide in the Transformers' final battle.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the 3rd and final film in the Transformers film series, from the direction by Michael Bay and being produced by Steven Spielberg. It is the sequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and is scheduled for release on June 29 in selected locations and July 1, 2011 in the US. The film will be presented in regular 2D, Real D 3D and IMAX, featuring Dolby Surround 7.1 sound.

X-Men: First Class Latest Trailer

Yeah! Check this out guys! As Fox released the latest trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. I will surely won't miss this because I've been a fan of it, from the animated series to the big screen. The latest trailer shows a relationship between Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and a more darker tone to the  between Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as opposed to previous trailers which seemed to position Magneto more as a tragic figure.

Opens June 3, 2011!!

What can you say about it guys?  I hope that it can satisfy my/our expectation. Woohoo! Can't wait!

Official Synopsis:

X-MEN FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

Holy Week, Vacation Over :)

Vacation is over guys and I'm pretty sure most of us are still lazy to start again for work on a monday but we need to do a lot of stuff for work, right? Did you enjoy your vacation? Where? Usually, some of us celebrated their holy week  in famous beaches from around the country like boracay, puerto galera etc.  I did enjoy my vacation because I went back home in the province to be with my friends, family and special someone. I had fun with good friday at a nice resort (24/7 Inn and Resort) with my friends and the next day with my family.

Happy Summer, Banapple 4 Ever :)

Craving for pies and cakes? Here's a great place to satisfy your sweet tooth. "Happy Summer, Banapple 4 Ever:)". Yep, you're right guys, it's Banapple Pies and Cheesecakes tag line for summer. Banapple is a friendly bakery cafe that serves freshly-baked pies and cheesecakes and desserts, as well as good food and coffee. Actually we've been planning to visit bannaple for months because one of our friend recommended that they serve the best pies and cheesecakes which is their specialty obviously. 

Finally, we had our chance to visit bannaple last sunday at 2nd floor IL Terrazo, Tomas Morato, QC. Banapple's place at IL Terrazo is not that big, I just saw a few tables, I think it's 5 tables inside and if I'm not mistaken it's 7 tables outside (a table for 4 person) other than that place is cool. Usually if it's your first time in a cafe or restaurant, you'll ask for their best seller, right? We did ask for their best seller which is the 

Banana Starry-Berry Custard Cheesecake for 110/slice; 

Banapple's homemade Iced Tea;

Trio of Sausages Fettuccine for 170;

protein-packed pasta of crumbled chorizo, garlic longganisa and hungarian sausage, tossed in garlic, parmesan cheese and a very light cream sauce.

Lasagna Roll Ups for 170;

herbed cream and parmesan cheeses fill al dente lasagna wide strips are rolled up abd smothered with classic tomato meat sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Baked Creamy Cheesy Penne for 175;

a well-loved dish luscious white cheese sauce and meaty tomato sauce with al dente penne pasta and sauteed hungarian sausage served with pesto bread.

We are surprised when the food was being served because the servings was about for 2 people! and taste of the food was totally delicious, you'll never regret eating at banapple. 

Enjoy your visit @ Banapple guys!

Conquering Tacloban City, Leyte

Guys, let me share you my adventure last March 25 - 27, 2011 in Tacloban City, Leyte. Actually, I was able to get there because my brother can't get back home from the US to attend his son's graduation so he requested  me and my mom to attend my nephew's high school graduation at Saint Mary's Palo, Leyte and I totally said yes because he'll pay for the airfare.

hahahaha! Don't laugh at me guys! It's my first time to ride a plane through Zestair and it was fun.Well, enough of the talk, let me share you the pictures I took alone. Check out the attractions in Tacloban City that can make you say WoW.


First Stop: Sto. Niño Shrine and Heritage Museum

The Santo Niño Shrine is one of the 29 presidential rest houses that the late President Ferdinand Marcos had built. It was built for his wife Imelda Marcos, who was born in Tacloban. It is considered the number 1 tourist spot in Tacloban because of its association with Imelda.

A chapel dominates the ground floor with the image of Sto. Niño as focal point. Elevated by 2-3 steps on the peripheral are 13 guest rooms, each with varied motifs representing the different regions of the country. On the second floor is a very spacious ballroom as well as the bed chambers of the former First Family.

Inside the mansion you can find some collections of paintings of historical events in Leyte. The shrine was also a palace during the Marcos regime, with Olympic-size swimming pool, state dining rooms, about 13 guest rooms and private bedrooms for Imelda, Ferdinand and their children. Imelda's bathroom was luxurious and larger than many Filipino homes. The place is filled with antique ceramics, pottery and collectibles. Imelda stayed there only once.

The guest rooms are each in a different theme; a little touch that I really like was that each room had a signed picture of Ferdinand, and a diorama showing Imelda performing some beneficial act or another.

The whole house was furninshed with a multitude of antiques from around the world, you can find Austrian mirrors in almost every room of the mansion.  It also became a repository of the Marcos' collections - chandeliers from Czech Republic, mirrors from Austria, tiles from Italy, jars from China, floor carpets from Argentina, among others.

Second Stop:Philipppine-Japan Peace Commemorative Monument and Park

A multi-tiered park built to honor the paramilitary personnel and soldiers who served and died during World War II.

Third Stop: Madonna Peace of Shrine

A statue made of a rare miyagi stone created by a famous Japanese sculptor. 

Fourth Stop: MacArthur Park (Leyte Landing Memorial, located at the Red Beach, Palo, Leyte)

Unfortunately, I was not able to visit the Price Mansion and the famous San Juanico Bridge (bridge connecting Samar and Leyte) maybe when I get back that will be first thing that'll do.

Movie: DC Comics Green Lantern

Guys! Are you excited to see DC's Green Lantern? Well, check out the latest trailer of the upcoming super hero flick "Green Lantern"  at the 2011 Wondercon. The film will star Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, with Martin Campbell directing a script by Greg Berlanti and comic book writers Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, which was subsequently rewritten by Michael Goldenberg. Green Lantern is scheduled to be released on June 17, 2011 in 3D.

Official Synopsis:

    "In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

    Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all."

April Fools! Do Me! Do Me!

I've been addicted to this tv series for the past few days called  "The Modern Family"  and there's this one episode that I totally like. The episode when Dylan (Haley's boyfriend) stands up to talk about how different their family is from his, with the hot foreigners and gay dudes and nutty people.

He is somehow able to stop the argument and prevent another incident by playing his own song for the arguing family members, the song is call  "In the Moonlight". Actually he wrote it for Haley. The next morning the whole family end up singing the song, hahahaha! that was so hilarious! specially when cameron is trying to blend his voice to mitchel in the bathroom.

Check out the video and lyrics below. (Beware, you might end up singing the song the whole day). Enjoy!

The stars are falling from the sky
And you’re the reason why
The moon is shining on your face
And I finally found its place
Cuz maybe baby
I just wanna do you, do you
Do you wanna do me, do me?
Underneath the moonlight, moonlight
And now we’re hiding in my car
I let you see my scars
Escape the dark for just one night
Your heart makes me explode with light
Baby maybe
Maybe I will steal you, steal you
Just so I can feel u, feel u
Maybe that will heal you, heal you
On the inside
Underneath the willow tree
Wearing nothing else but me
