Alaxan Viewing party coverage–Gilas Pilipinas vs. Croatia–FIBA games

Alaxan hosted a viewing party for the 1st FIBA game of our Gilas Pilipinas team vs. Croatia, the viewing party was held at Skinny Mike’s Sports Bar in BGC. I went there after the Globe Slipstream event with my blogger friends.

I’ve met the Gilas Pilipinas team during the press con for the PBA All Star game in MOA Arena, they are so comfy and not nervous about the upcoming FIBA Game, I just told myself that these big guys can beat any players of a foreign land, but I cringe to death when I saw the actual game aired via Cignal TV.

#GlobeSlipStream coverage in BGC–high speed motoring event for everyone by Globe and Lotus F1 Team

edit P1011667
A high speed motoring event for celebrating Globe’s milestone as a leading telecommunications company to have 100 percent 3G network coverage nationwide, and also an early celebration for the completion of their 4G HSPA+ network nationwide to 100 percent at the end of the third quarter. This celebration is a treat for all speed fans and motoring aficionados, Globe combined the power of tech and lifestyle into one grand event, Globe managed to convert the streets of BGC into a race track and collaborated with Lotus F1 junior Marlon Stockinger and the Lotus F1 Team for the motoring event. There’s a motoring event at day time, then there’s a rock music party at night. The entire BGC is a big stage not just for Globe users,but for everyone.

F1 cars, race demo, fun booths and concert at Globe Slipstream event at BGC this Aug 30 1pm-6pm onwards

Slipstream Driving Exhibition_2
The Globe Slipstream will be this Aug 30 at the BGC grounds. Access to the event is FREE.
for details visit http://www.globeslipstream.ph/

I have a big feeling that Globe will launch something at the Globe Slipstream event, according to the write up in all their collaterals – “witness how speed changes everything and powers today’s dynamic lifestyle”, I’m not talking about fast cars, but I’m talking about internet speed. I have a big feeling that it might be involved with fast cars and fast internet. Remember in the past that they launched a broadband usb with label of a fast car. If they will launch a better one, so then I want to see it and try it.

My visit at Globe Digital Lifestyle Expo in SM Megamall (coverage)

The expo is a first from Globe, its all about the latest apps, mobile devices, mobile services, advocacy, event promotion and also the new service for Android app lovers. Its been a year since I attended an event from Globe, I gave another go signal to myself to attend this “Globe Digital Lifestyle Expo”, it attracted me when I first heard it because it’s a first ever digital expo featuring the apps, tech and mobile devices that makes our life more easier.

KL Tower Serviced Residences in Makati City–a perfect extended staycation in the city

If you are looking for a spacious room with complete stuff that you need for a 3-4 days of stay in Makati City, then you have to check out my new recommendation here in my blog, because KL Tower Serviced Residences can match the level of those luxury hotels in the middle of the city. KL Tower Serviced Residences, owned by Kalaw-Ledesma family, is a new residential building in Legazpi Village, Makati, they opened last January 2014 and the building is not your ordinary residential or condo type structure, because KL Tower Serviced Residences can be your home for an overnight or even long stay, its like a condo hotel with a complete furnish set up, plus with swimming pool, play area, restaurant, gym, sauna and function room. The most surprising part here is that the rates are not that expensive.

Chicago Comic Con 2014 Wizard World Convention

When you see people walking down the streets wearing costumes, you probably think that there is Superheroes party in Rosemont! Actually, it's the Annual Comic Convention held in Chicago (the longest running convention in the city!). Most of them are easily be recognized because they are dressed up based from the comics or movie inspired characters. And many of them are dressed up as Batman, Joker, Star Wars casts, Anime cosplayers, game characters and Walking Dead or characters from Dr Who.

Exhibit halls are jampacked with a-must-haves comic books, rare collectibles, souvenir shirts and FunKo - yup, these vinyl toys from POP! are really in demand. You can see them in each corners of the exhibit hall. As I check what's in store in each aisle, I saw artists' booth and their creations; huge space for comic enthusiasts, and frenzy shirts or costume accessories that will complete your impersonation.

More excitement inside if you have plenty of $$$ and purchased the VIP badge (which gives you access to all opportunities like reserve seat on programs and entrance to all days of the event) or meet and greet or photo op session with your favorite stars (that's ranging from $300 above each artists -crazy!!!).

As I read on the program schedule guide, good thing that "Gotham" is having an exclusive screening courtesy of Fox 32 Chicago (airing its first episode). I am a great fan of Batman, so I would love to watch this show. Funny thing on that day you will see all Batman fanatics (including me) are in one room. Some are on their Batman and Joker costumes (seating together) which are awesome to see!

The casts of Gotham arrived and introduced themselves. Taking photos inside the venue or video recording is strictly prohibited and I only managed to take a wall screen shot before the screening.

casts of Gotham

I won't give any spoilers, see it for yourself. Gotham is a story of different people who live on that place.

Another good opportunity I had that day is when I waited for the casts of "The Guardians of the Galaxy" to arrive on the program room (Dave "Batista" Bautista & Michael Rooker) and they have answered some Questions from the audience.

I only attended the Saturday event because of work schedules. Maybe next year, I'll save $$$ to experience a photo op or meet and greet :) My day is not complete without buying something from the convention. This shirt is really awesome. I am Superhero, yes, I am!

Toy Kingdom Toy Expo 2014 this Aug 29-31 in SMX (free entrance)

Toy Kingdom will have the 2nd Toy Expo Philippines event this Aug 29-31 in SMX Convention Center in SM MOA Complex, the event took for another 2 years for its 2nd Toy Expo. At first I thought that it will be an annual event, but I guess that it will happen in every 2 years. But that’s okay, I have a big feeling that the Toy Expo 2014 will be much more better than their first Toy Expo.

Kessaku– Japanese restaurant for the Southerners (in Commerce Center Alabang)

I did a Google search and I learned that the meaning of Kessaku is “best work” and “masterpiece”, I didn’t asked the restaurant owner for the meaning but I’m sure they are using the right term to name their restaurant. I totally agree that their food is served in its best form, although its not yet the best for me or perfect taste, but I can say that they didn’t disappoint me and my expectations were met, because I learned before hand that this restaurant is connected to that Japanese restaurant – Jozu Kin in Burgos Circle, and I know for sure that they shared the same recipe, kitchen style and maybe their chefs, I got a confirmation after I visited the resto and talked to the resto manager.

First zero gravity commercial flights to launch in Asia and here in the Philippines this January 2015

An event that I want to cover for next year! This coming January 2015, the first ever zero gravity commercial flight will take place first in Japan and then followed by in the Philippines for February 2015. I think it’s a dream come true now for everyone to feel the zero gravity and weightlessness experience even without an astronaut licensed, because the zero-g flight will require you to pass a medical check up and a pay at least a PHP166,000+ or €2,000 for the party room package to join the zero-g flight.
