Me and my friend love 'Banana Split,' so during August we can't wait to have another Banana Split day at the Nestle Creamery. Too bad that the ice cream parlor where I used to go closed officially and transfer to its new location.

It was a fun filled afternoon with good ambiance of delicious foods.

Ad campaign for Taiwan’s No. 1 ice cream showcases Bohol’s attractions

Image
The pristine white-sand beaches of Bohol, Philippines captivated the makers of DuRoyal, the No. 1 ice cream brand in Taiwan, to be its featured location for their latest TV ad.

The pristine white beaches, crystal-clear waters, and historical landmarks, are only among the attractions of Bohol that captivated the makers of DuRoyal, the number one ice cream brand in Taiwan, which led them to make it the location for their ad campaign shoot for 2009.

Every year, DuRoyal spearheads a unique promotional drive for their summer months, and this year they chose Bohol, Philippines, for their main location. The campaign also includes a raffle that would entitle one hundred lucky winners to a dream trip to the country.

According to Secretary Ace Durano of the Department of Tourism (DOT), whose team hosted the crew for the duration of their shoot, “The country’s exposure in an international commercial for a successful ice cream brand reaffirms our country’s position as a best-selling summer destinati…

Let's have some fun - Lady Gaga Live in Manila

Image
image source: Magic 89.9 Facebook
The lady behind the song Paparazzi and Pokerface, yes, she performed last night -- That's LADY GAGA.

Oh, how i love her music. Not to mention, I love her style. Yesterday's performance was a blast. I was so excited seeing her onstage. The opening song, Paparazzi was my most favorite. Why? Because I love the lyrics:

Am your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me

Papa-Paparazzi

The ambiance of Araneta Coliseum was so bright, lively and cheerful. All fans were screaming and singing some of her songs. Lady Gaga even said she love the Filipinos. She also revealed that her best friend is a Filipino. They've been friends since she was 4 (thats according to TV patrol).

The show was too short. Yet, all of us enjoyed each time she performed. Her piano version of Pokerface was the BEST. Well applauded and as well as her witty dialogues.

She thanked all Filipinos who watched her concert on her Twitter.

She's now in Singapore.

Now, here are some o…

Lady Gaga, on Asia tour, shows off souvenir tattoo and says blond look is
SEOUL, South Korea —Lady Gaga may sport an ever-changing series of risque outfits, but the pop singer says two things are permanent: her tattoos and her bow tie ‘do.The 23-year-old star, her real name Stefani Germanotta, showed off her newest body art Sunday night before performing the hit songs “Poker Face,” ”Just Dance” and “Paparazzi” at Seoul’s Olympic Hall during the Asian leg of her “Fame Ball” tour.The curling script on her left arm is a souvenir from a midnight session at a tattoo parlor in Osaka, Japan.“It says ‘In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that you would die if you were forbidden to write.

Megatrade Hall 1 and 2, AUgust 8 and 9, 2009

My comments
I went on the 2nd day/last day of the event. The venue is much more like of the TOYCON
(the most famous toy-hobby-etc convention, why etc? they have everything! hahaha)

Upon entering the venue saw the stage on the right side and Nexxus band is performing. Then I took several shots of the exhibits including the booths and stroll around freely --- not much people when i went, i don't know maybe because am a little bit late? not that sure because it's 6pm and I don't think that its a good excuse... Cosplayers scattered outside, whats new? and few booths were there selling toys. I saw the comics booth area far from the side.

I don't know what happened on day 1, but rest assured

--- the event (which am present) was boring.

It's my OPINION.
and who cares?

hahahaha.

I better went to Greenbelt for Ron English's live painting session and autograph signing.
