sold out havs + imax + mangojito

YUP, im all out now. my limited stock of Havaianas Dragon edition is sold out (finally), the last piece, was carlo’s pair. Well, instead of sending the havs to carlo using air21, i ended up meeting with him. its been a boring week so i decided to go. besides, its payday time for carlo, as usual, he’d be dishing out some of his money again hehehe… and he did emoticon (thats what he always do, i know)

Lap 1

first stop was at gerry’s grill. we ordered pork sinigang (it was good, yet so maasim! haha conio), spicy garlic chicken and bagoong rice. it was a heavy meal (for me i guess), i ordered another plain rice. the bill isnt that bad even with the tax. not like the one we had last tech tour at the stars and stripes – talk about gourmet meal at 400.xx just for me.

Lap 2

It wasnt in the plan, to watch superman imax emoticon, We just went in to inqure, i remember 2 weeks ago that there is no chance of seeing superman return in imax with the usual walk-in basis, u have to have a reservation first.

Luckily, now u can. As long as u can dish out more bucks than the usual 80-120 peso ticket. Php 350 that is. We got the 8:00 spot.

Lap 3
Export Bank, (west services), no pics sorry hehe…
Carlo has some business with his friend keysi (keysinunez.com). We were suppose to go to team manila’s store at ecoville after that but it was too late for us so we just went back to mall of asia again, for our first IMAX Experience 😛

Lap 4

That was a shot at the IMAX Coca Cola Chill lounge. 7:45pm.


We picked the seats F22 and F23… the middle part. That was me trying off the 3d Glass. as u can see, carlo’s amused with the 8 storey  white screen hehe…

Well for the movie, it was a good one. i encourage you to watch superman returns, be it imax experience or not. i wont say much about the movie dont worry, just get ur butts up and watch it. i like what he (superman) uttered at the end part… he sounded like me 😛 – "I am always around"

Oh and for the experience ? (dont blame me if i spoil what u are suppose to experience soon when u try imax)
a) just before u enter the cinema, theyll hand u a pair of 3d Glasses.
b) there are ushers around, twiced we got assisted – "what seat sir?" F23! F22!
c) a very nice lady voice will speak saying "please wear your 3d glass during the trailer, ud experience a unique blah blah blah…" and u will. i really like the default demo of imax. ull see as if a big ring (like the one saturn have) is just passing by – in-your-face.

oh the trailer, i like the T-REX one. the dinasaur – again is like in front of you.. yeah for real hehehe…

i almost forgot, superman isnt  full-length-3d-experience.  the lady voice said that actually. only 4 segments has 3d experience. ull know when to wear the glasses coz theres this green icon flashing at the big screen. it means wear ur glass. a red "remove-it-u-dumb-ass" icon flashes when u have to remove it hehe…

Again, my first IMAX experience was worth it. OH YEAH! dont forget the i-forgot-how-many-watts sound experience too! (guys ull feel it on ur seats!)


thats my pair of 3d glass just before i return it.

Lap 5
We just had a couple of taco snacks at Wendy’s then brought it to Mojito bay.

that was before the big shower! hahaha… it did rain hard… really hard! we got stranded  and we had to move INSIDE the bar that is – 2% BUILT! yeah!  Mojito Bay is still under rigid construction. We were treated with care, as always 😛 Our friend hazel wasnt around, but the new girl was nice. joanne was her name 😉

Lap 6. Finally.

Starbucks Bluewave. Stayed for a while as we really are being held stranded by the rain.

i took a cab from bluewave to sm bacoor. paid Php 150 (for your future reference). got home at 3 and started blogging this hehe… i hope u learned something! (what the hell are u gonna get with this anyway ? ) oh yeah… here : "Life is short, do what makes you happy!"

birthday girl *gn

it was GN and Vanessa’s birthday last sunday (july 16)… happy birthday guys emoticon

bubbly sunday.

it was fiesta. for ramsey hehehe.

pareng ramsey txted me while i was eating lunch that he wanted to go out. i assumed na sumuweldo cia hehehe … and yes he did. so un, sabi ko meet kami moa, i have to discuss some important agenda regarding our projects, and some line up of tech

activities to happen this week :

7/19 wednesday
– an OOP concept / c#.net seminar on microsoft, 6750 bldg, ayala avenue, makati. 5-7 pm
7/20 thursday
– NETGEAR Product Launching, SM Cinema 4, Mall of Asia, Cocktail starts at 5:30
7/21 friday
– JPCS Techtour, di ko alam ung mga pupuntahan 😐 worldtrade lang alam ko. assembly at 7am?

ok back with my story yesterday; we ate a 14" manhattan pizza at yellow cab. then we headed to SM appliances to canvass some portable media players and replacement headset for my muvo. the piece that comes with the player is such a pain in the ear. i scored a white panasonic RP-HE520, its white. smaller and more comfortable.

went to look for the voodoo dolls at the 2nd level. it was expensive pala 😐

went to a.f.f… no more dragons emoticon

JulyPics(016).jpg
stayed at seattles best to discuss the projects and events. ramsey ordered a tall classic espresso, and i got the iced cold something something that i didnt know has some shot of wine or whatever it is. i feel tipsy every sip.

JulyPics(019).jpg
then lastly, went to mojito bay back at the 2nd level. it was a nice spot to unwind, overlooking the crowd. first we ordered a round of san mig lights while listening to the bands. it was a lucky day for us. MTV Pilipinas mall tour was at the mall. spongecola, sugarfree, itchyworms & pupil was there… its as if im listening to my mp3 tracks live. each goup played 3 tracks. i know 5 bands un, nakalimutan ko ung isa.

JulyPics(018).jpg
i love the "beer" song of Itchyworms. sobrang nakakarelate. talk about im really drinking one while listening emoticon

anyway madami ding tao. mga wierd na rakista haha.. i use to see them on tv’s only. kahapon live hehe.. harap harapan.. nag sslaman sila.. wala namang gulo.. sobrang enjoy kahit tapos na. kahit wala na ung band.

naabutan pa namin ung laser show. i remember 2 themes, superman and pink panther…

i cant tell the time. amfps! my fone got batt empty. i was txting rizza when the fone went off.

btw, ramsey was such as shit , the service crew that was pampering us every round of beer has a nice name – hazel. ramsey keeps pissing me off. as if affected naman ako… heller ?! anyway the girl was nice, they invited us to come back at thier official opening this august. and hazel thought i was only 20.
emoticon

it was pretty fun, beer, spicy chicharon. our topics wasnt that serious all the way. i remember we were talking about da vinci, gospel of judas, marriage ?, poste ng dsl, 1.5" ? digitel? corruption of minor… haha almost everything

anyway, we STILL had a long serious talk during the drinking session (kahit bubbly na kami). i finally got it out my system. i have been bothered with some issues, and i was able to let it out with ramsey.. finally.

well basically thats it, we went home early. there was still fx/vans bound for imus. dun kami sumakay. sa sm bacoor kami tumagal sa paghihintay ng bus bound for cavite city.

got home at 12. i got around 9 texts. alexa was bad hehe.

what happened next is: i dont know. im not yet ready to butt it out. really dont know. whatever. 

its as if i was ctrl + alt + delete’d emoticon

well burix is my alexa’s higschool buddies. i was left hanging with them when yeyek left for san diego so i am like one of them. beside, i still am a teen inside 😛
Serious aside, I dont personally know who Frederik Hererra is but i am sure he needs someone else’s help. He’s from Dalahican, Cavite City.
Right now, I only have a couple of hundred bucks here and rest assured, half of what i have i might give in to frederick.
My point sharing this has something to do with my havs hehe…
Here goes, I am suppose to place those Limited Edition "Dragon" Havaianas for bidding at ebay.ph early August. Higher or even double the price of course since no single outlet would be selling that design. Thats how Havaianas work at ebay. If you’d notice, havaianas have been the top-notcher as the most searched item.

I wont be waiting for that August to come so im placing (early now) all these limited edition Havaianas I have for sale. Gusto ko na cia mabenta. Im no longer after the profit or what, but for the sake of sparing what i have to somebody who needs it. These Havs are all brand new, in box and with tags. Php 1,000 Each. I still have 4 pieces available.


havaianas dragon metallic gold/brown

1pc 41-42 (usa 9)
1pc 37-38 (usa 6)

havaianas dragon metallic silver/black
1pc 39-40 (usa 7/8) sold to caloy (carloroxas.net)
1pc 41-42 (usa 9)sold to augusto ferma III

If you are interested, just message me thru this thread or keep in touch with my mobile at 915.318.4782.
I dont know who am I reaching out with this blog but for those who could spare a piece of what you have be it prayers, spare money, preferrably groceries, please do. thru this, we are showing how people support – each other 😛

I know helping doesnt need not to be compensated or what but for those people whod be helping us out, id be giving out a 50mb hosting in return, sponsored by technoville of course.
