[1: 1,012 of 10,000] Awwww – I Want That Too

In Review on May 7, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Iron Man 3 Movie Poster

Tony Stark: [to Pepper] I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.

It’s nice to have someone who will protect you even if you don’t need protecting or at least you don’t show that you needed someone.

I watched Iron Man 3 on May 3, no I am not a fan, I’m kidding of course I am. I love it most especially because of Robert Downey Jr., he is such a good actor who is absolutely suave without doubt.

For any Marvel experienced moviegoers know that they got to stick at the end after the amazing credits filled with names and roles because the last scene no matter how brief would complete the whole excitement experience. I am not putting any spoiler alert here because I am not spilling anything.

I am not disappointed about the movie. Loved it! I know the villain is quite unrealistic but for the sake of entertainment I am letting it slide but it was quite annoying that the villain was actually so bad ass that it cannot be defeated. There are corny moments but forgivable, well charge it to the fan reason! This is a bias review, all I can say is if you loved 1 & 2, there will be a pretty good point that you should see 3.

[1: 896 of 10,000] Handy Camera – Sony DSC-HX20V

In Review on January 12, 2013 at 10:23 AM

Thanks to my shopaholic sissy, she insisted that we get ourselves a new digital camera for the last family trip and the one that suits our budget is a Sony DSC-HX20V. It has 18.2 mega pixels (love that!) and loaded with different effects. We are pretty comfortable with the brand too, we trust Sony! Even if our last Sony camera doesn’t work anymore, we blame dropping it several times and it’s probably due to old age – about 2 years.

Photography Blog has a complete review with the gadget if you are interested with the technical stuffs and everything else.

We are far from being a professional photographer but having a handy camera that could give vibrant photos surely made the after trip feeling amazing especially when we go back to all the photos, which is pretty impressive with such less blurry takes. The photo below is one of my favorites because I love the colors gray and red, which was taken from Kempinski Aqaba Hotel’s lobby. It was the day that we are flying out from Jordan and back to Dubai.

[1: 837 of 10,000] Coca-Cola Cherry Review

In Review on November 17, 2012 at 1:21 PM

I am a Coca-Cola baby, I am particularly a fan of Coke Light, so when I saw Cherry and up for a new taste and surprise I tried it. It tasted like Cherry so that’s good but the overall impact wasn’t as mind-blowing as Coke Light. It tasted a lot healthier because it seemed less sweet than what I am used to and the carbonated effect doesn’t burst in my taste buds.

I am not drinking it again.

In Review on October 6, 2012 at 11:59 PM

iHop is not a new Apple product but it’s a new restaurant that I have to try for dinner. Breakfast for Dinner! After the heavy breakfast at moon time, I hit the grocery for 2 hours for indirect exercise and then headed home.

The food at IHOP (International House of Pancakes) Restaurant at Mall of the Emirates wasn’t SUPER memorable, it was OK; but if there’s one thing quite commendable is the service. People are quirky friendly and perky.

  • I regret ordering the Cinnamon French Toast 😦
  • They’ve got the best tasting Mozzarella Stick from their Starter Sampler 🙂
  • The crispy steak was good 🙂
  • Mashed potato was well seasoned 🙂
  • Hashed brown looked good but has a bit of bitter taste 😦
  • Pancake was subtly salty 🙂 with an amazing array of 4 syrups to pour – Maple, Blueberry, Strawberry and Pecan 😉
  • Loved the sunny side up eggs 🙂
  • Nothing really spectacular about the Broccoli but at least it was perfectly cooked but taste wise nothing worth exaggerating 😀

 

[1: 735 of 10,000] I’m a Dr. House Fan But the Final Episode Was Not Amazing At All

In Review on August 24, 2012 at 9:47 PM

8 years is a long time. I loved the 1st season, then the 2nd, then the 3rd, 4th, and then along the way I lost interest. When I heard Season 8 would be the last stretch, I tuned in.

If there is one thing that I admired from the very beginning, it is the TRUE FRIENDSHIP between Gregory and Wilson. It was undeniable that there is true love there. It didn’t fail on that part up to the very end.

But as some of the episodes no longer excite and interest me to even watch it, it’s excruciating to say I was also disappointed about the ending. How could they bring everyone but Cuddy? They guested the cut-throat bitch but never Cuddy? It’s not just about the pissed Cuddy that I am missing, the story lost its luster. Ending it with repeatedly believing the ‘puzzle’ was the most important wasn’t strong and believable enough. I was so bored I actually did household chore while watching the final episode because it was dry and absolutely boring.

I feel sad that it left the air without a bang. It has so many fans but to end it poorly is like a waste of all the great works that was finely established. The writers ran out with amazing ideas and the art to make a delicate and beautiful riddle unfolds slowly as the story comes to an end.

Oh well, it’s done, it’s forgettable, and would I even care years from now, I may remember the good parts but I can’t forget the part that I wasn’t satisfied. It’s like a famous brand with a poor customer service; the downfall at this point is there is no way to fire anyone and change the person dealing customer service because the brand is inexistent.

No standing ovation, really it doesn’t deserve it even when begged. Again, it is sad.

[1: 708 of 10,000] To Kill A Mocking Bird Book Review

In Review on August 6, 2012 at 6:51 PM

I’m a bit faster in reading this time. On and off I finished Harper Lee‘s To Kill A Mocking Bird in about 2 months, which was written in 1960, I wasn’t even born then. I got a very old book; the edition I got a hold was the 1989.

It’s a great story narrated by a young girl nicknamed as Scout. She has an adventurous big brother Jem and a very righteous lawyer father Atticus Finch.

It was interesting to read a world as seen by a bright child with a clearer understanding about what should be right. It was fun to read the games of children in a quiet simple town. It was heart wrenching to read the injustice people incur to others all because of the notion that they are superior.

When did people start counting themselves as better from another race? Generality is never right.

The suspense about Boo Radley was gripping and I adored how Scout finally met him face to face. A child’s imagination could really run wild and adults should never stopped being playful and imaginative.

It was a simple story with so much truth. No wonder it received the Pulitzer Prize award and over 30 million copies were sold.

 

[1: 622 of 10,000] The Best Mini Pao In Dubai

In Review on April 20, 2012 at 6:54 PM

We (family most especially for my Mum) finally found where to buy the best mini pao in Dubai. The Noodle Room is a winner for serving the best Bao (China), a classic, the filled steamed bun.

The bun is pretty soft and delicious. The filling is forgettable but it doesn’t matter because the king is the well made dough.

The restaurant was not very refined but I would still go back to that restaurant for the bun. Definitely!

[1: 611 of 10,000] Authentic Filipino Bakery in Dubai – Pan De Manila

In Review on April 10, 2012 at 11:03 AM

My family is very happy that we have found an authentic Filipino bakery here in Dubai and it’s close from home. It used to have the Hundred Islands name but now it’s called PAN DE MANILA Bakery & Refreshment.

It is located in Karama and the store is facing the side of the Pyramid Building beside the former Ministry of Health and Pizza Hut, if you get lost try to contact me not that I am getting paid here to promote them. As per their signage, they are open from 6AM until Midnight.

Brazo de Mercedes

What we (my family and I) like about their bread is it’s hot hopefully because it is truly freshly baked, the texture is soft, it’s tasty, it taste like how I knew they taste like back home, and they got the Filipino varieties of pastries from Pandesal, Ensaymada, Hopia, Pianono, Empanada, Egg Pie, Chocolate Crinkles, my sibling’s favorite Brazo de Mercedes, etc. The goodies are reasonably priced.

Other Filipinos in Dubai may have found them delicious because the place might be small but it is usually filled with customers so it’s a validation that they are baking something good.

This must be the most fashionable bathroom tile I’ve ever touched in cream. Read the rest of this entry »
