Cherry Mobile Urban Runs on Android Kitkat Priced at P4699

Cherry Mobile Urban runs on android KitKat out of the box. If you would look at the list of phones in Cherry Mobile Festival 2014 you would notice that there is only one phone that is running in android 4.4 KitKat, which is the Urban. This phone would probably the first coming from a local smartphone distributor to run the latest android operating system. The pricing of this unit is very competitive, considering it is priced equal if not lower compared to other smartphone having same specs and running on Jelly Bean.

DOTA (Nakakabaliw) The Movie, Official Trailer, and Poster

Dota (Nakakabaliw) The Movie Now showing in Philippine Cinemas. Who would have thought that someone in the film industry would think about producing a movie, which was themed after the popular multiplayer online game DOTA (Defence of the Ancient)?

dota the movie

Judging from the three minute trailer and the background RAP song, the movie tells about a student (Butch) who used to be dedicated with his studies but when he start playing dota, he eventually became a junkie. He now spends most of his time playing the game and no longer goes to school. Apparently, his parents are not aware about it as they are also busy with their own vices and business.

Butch became so attached to dota resulting him to join competition involving money. Unfortunately, it leads to something very unacceptable. I assume because of the online game they got involved in street fight costing the life of his brother, which eventually turned into zombie (yay!!!). Also, Butch loses his head and has to go to rehabilitation.

Anyway, for the rest of the story I would suggest you watch the trailer below:

What can you say about the trailer, or may be about the poster? For me, I really don’t like the fight scene (the guy holding a keyboard), and that Butch’s brother who awakens and became zombie is very unrealistic. Also, Dota should be played with 5 members how come Butch’s team only have 4 members (scene prior to the guy throwing CPU outside the computer shop). The poster should also be improved as it is not appealing.

DOTA (Nakakabaliw) features Joyce Ching, Joana Elle, James Matthew, and Jaypee Adalem. Starring Roldan Aquino, Danny Labra, Marivic Cuyugan, and Whitney Tyzon.

My Love at First Bite Story with Twelve Cupcakes

Here’s a very short story on how I fall in love at first bite with Twelve Cupcakes – particularly the Red Velvet. I don’t like to eat cupcakes as I prefer to eat one big slice. For me cupcake is not enough for my big appetite and also for reasons I don’t know, I really don’t like to eat cupcakes.

But then, it seems that something inevitable is bound to happen (yay!!!). I booked a flight for the whole family for our Manila – Singapore trip with Jetstar. Since there is nothing much to do with the three and half hour travel, my wife and I browse the JetStar Cafe, the Red Velvet made by Twelve Cupcakes caught our attention so we purchased just one piece for S$4. We both have our first bite and I immediately decided to buy another piece. It looks like I fell in love with its perfect (not so sweet) taste.
