Movie Review: Tower Heist

Tower Heist Cast

An action-comedy movie top-billed by Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy, the Tower Heist is about a robbery at a billionaire’s penthouse located at the most luxurious condominium in Central Park where the most-advanced security system is installed. The crime is perpetuated by the building’s General Manager, Josh Kovacs (Stiller). The intention was to reclaim what was stolen from them. Alan Alda plays the billionaire and Wall Street bigwig Arthur Shaw who owns the penthouse. He manages huge portfolio investments and was accused of defrauding his investors, including all the staff at the tower whose retirement money Shaw was entrusted to manage. Kovacs successfully convinced an evicted condominium resident, the concierge, the elevator boy and the maid to help him with the plan. But to make this $20-Million robbery a sealed deal, he recruits small-time thief Slide (Murphy) to do the dirty work. What happens next for these amateur criminals is ...

Suzuki Philippines Launches Compact Car Alto K10

Suzuki Philippines Launches Compact Car Alto K10

Back in 2008, I was very much interested in buying a car. I started saving and researching for the best car to purchase. I explored my options — sedan, SUV, compact, brand new or pre-owned cars. I also asked around and for most of my friends who own a car already, they were recommending compact cars. The reason — fuel consumption. I had interesting discussions and I took notes. Certain turn of events in 2009 prompted me to throw the plan to the back burner. Then I saw Suzuki Alto K10. I was at the Blue Leaf Events Pavilion last October 27th where Suzuki Philippines introduced the newest version of its most popular and fast-selling compact car — the Suzuki Alto K10. The executives of the Japanese car and motorcycle manufacturer were there, headed by Mr. Satoshi Uchida, Suzuki Philippines, Inc. President, who came to the country in 2008. In ...

Lenovo Mobile Enters the Philippine Market

Lenovo's Fashion Phone in the flesh

The 3rd biggest PC manufacturer in the world has made a mark as the biggest mobile phone brand in China. Now Lenovo Mobile has entered the Philippine market to conquer the hearts of every cellphone-toting Filipino. I attended the exclusive blogger dinner at Chateau 1771, Greenbelt 5 last October 27th where we were introduced to the product line now available in the market. My initial impression — WOW! This invitation came at a very timely manner. I have been thinking of purchasing a new mobile phone with price as the primary consideration. But of course I’m also looking at the features. As an online retailer and a blogger, I need to be online most of the time. Hence, the need to be always connected to the Internet is a major requirement. I wanted to be able to access my email, get on the web, send a tweet or set a ...

Puss in Boots – A Movie Review

Cute and Lovable Puss in Boots

Yesterday, I had the chance to be invited at the red carpet premiere of DreamWorks’ latest animation flick Puss In Boots at the IMAX Theatre of SM City North Edsa. I was so excited but was not expecting anything more than a regular screening. I had a chance to watch Real Steel at the same venue, but it was not in 3D. This time it’s different! The 3D glasses were handed to us as we enter the cinema. Oh boy was I thrilled! The story is actually set prior to Puss in Boots meeting Shrek and Donkey. This was the time when he is full of good moral character who protected the innocent — a hero. This is not the story I grew up with, having remembered the fairy tale story I read in my childhood. I would have wanted to see how the original story was portrayed on screen. ...

Close To Heaven – My First Angel’s Pizza Experience

Angel's Pizza - Chicken Aloha

I love pizza! It will always satisfy my tummy with all those toppings. But not all pizzas are made equal. It comes in different shapes, sizes and flavors and as pizza parlors grow, it’s hard to choose which one’s for you. It’s normal to stick to your favorites, but it doesn’t hurt to look the other way. You’ll never know what you’re gonna get. That’s exactly what I did when I had my pizza delivered last night courtesy of Angel’s Pizza — my first ever experience. It was supposed to be a food-tasting event at the City Golf Plaza in Pasig, but then I was told that they’ll have it delivered to my place instead. Who am I to decline? So at 6PM, just as they said, the pizza delivery boy arrived. My cousin hurried at the gate to meet the guy as I was on the phone with a ...

Iron Your Fashion – Philips Launches Iron GC2900

Philips PowerLife GC2900 Fashion Show - Female

Ironing clothes is the most challenging household chore for me. I can cook, wash the dishes, do the laundry, clean the house. But I can never iron clothes that well, especially those long-sleeved shirts. After working my way through the entire clothes, i end up doing it again when I still see the creases as I hung them to my closet. I thought I’ve given things up until I attended an event where appliance manufacturer Philips launched the PowerLife Iron GC2900. I was at the The Establishment to attend the launch Thursday night, October 20th. To be honest, I couldn’t comprehend why Philips had to bring a household product at a posh night spot just to say that they have a new iron in the market. As the program rolled out, we were treated to a mini-fashion show where models sashayed with beautiful creations by the Fashion Institute of the ...

Ferrero Rocher Chocolates – What a Treat from Proactiv!

Ferrero Rocher Chocolates

Trick or Treat! It’s Halloween Season once again and commercial establishments are coming up with gimmicks. Unfortunately, most of these target the kids. But don’t fret! Proactiv Solution is giving treats to grown ups — FREE Ferrero Rocher Chocolates! Yep, you read it right. That delicious chocolates. What a treat from Proactiv! This is such an “in-your-face” declaration from the skin care company. I mean, we all have heard how chocolates causes pimples. Heck, when I was in my younger years, I totally avoided chocolates of any form whenever I have breakouts for fear of looking like a moon. I’m a keloid former and I fear that if an acne would get worse it can form into a keloid. I totally don’t want that to happen so I listen to what the oldies said. Unfortunately, the link between chocolates and acne is considered a myth. I was fooled and I ...
