Coca-Cola Ambassadors: Joseph Marco, Kathryn Bernardo, Julia Montes and Enchong Dee
Last August 17, 2013, Coca-Cola offered HAPPINESS to all Davaweños in line with the celebration of Kadayawan Festival 2013 in Davao City. The show started at exactly 3:00 PM at the activity center in Abreeza Mall.

There were limited seats fronting the stage intended for VIPs and Guests. Those who win in the contest got the VIP seat and the other 400 seats were on "first come, first serve" basis. We arrived in the venue 3 hours earlier and lined up, trying our best luck to get at least the Guest's seat. With our confidence to get in as there were just few people lined up that time, we even managed to make friends with the couple in front of us... played games and chatting to kill time.

"Though diverse in cultures, traditions and beliefs, these tribes are very much connected by a common origin that binds them together as one and the same…an origin that traces to the very core of the history of Davao City." source:

Rooftop Prince Review:

It's very rare for me to make reviews with Korean Dramas. I usually watched them in television but since lately I seldom did (because of pressures from work), I only had chance to watch them online if I had spare time.

Honestly speaking, I would never had the interest to watch it if not of my sister. She said that this drama was so hilarious that I "must" watch it, haha. It's more like a command than recommendation though. It flickered interest in me, and just last night I decided to watch it.

I'm way too far halfway but the first few episodes are more than enough to set my mind to watch it all the way no matter how long it will take☺. And I never, even a bit, did regret watching it despite the fact that I got horrible eye bags in my face. I also yawned always, almost every hour at my work. Nonetheless, it was nothing to me. What's more important is I have to finish watching it.

«Movie Review» Chinese Zodiac: Jackie Chan's Last Action Movie

Due to my reckless decision together with a friend of mine, we ended up watching Chinese Zodiac (CZ12) of Jackie Chan on its first day of showing. Reportedly, it turned out to be his last major action-adventure movie. Chinese Zodiac was written, directed, produced and starred by Jacke Chan himself.

Chinese Zodiac 2012 by Jackie Chan

Chinese Zodiac was shown here in Philippines yesterday, January 30, 2013 and fortunately, we were able to witnessed Jackie Chan's last grandest action film he has ever made. It was shot in 8 countries and 5 continents around the world! Whoah! If that is something more to be proud of.

“I want to let the audience know that this is my last big action movie. I don’t like to die on the set. I want to continue filming,” said Jackie. “Maybe on my next movie, I don’t have to roll over, jump over the building, or jump off the car. I want to try drama or be casted in a love story” source:
So to clear things up, this is not gonna be his final casting in the movie. That's right! Glad to hear that! He should maim himself away from action movies as he is really getting older. He must have some self-pity for his body. Poor rich guy☺

«Movie Review» Life of Pi: A Journey of a Lifetime

life of pi indian movie review

I saw the trailer of Life of Pi last year when I watched a movie back then. I was held captive by the excellent visual effects shown in the trailer and got quite excited when I discovered that he'll trail an audacious epic journey amidst the ocean with a — tiger? How dangerous and exciting it can be! Right there and then, I made a promise to myself that I'll definitely watch it for sure. It was supposed to be shown last year but was delayed due to some reasons I don't know. And finally, last night was the realization of that promise. 

Together with my friends, we took the Last Full Show of Life of Pi in 3D. There were quite plenty of people watching the movie.

SushiDito Davao: A Taste of Japanese Cuisine

Before 2012 ended, I never thought I would get a chance to eat in a Japanese Restaurant that time. Well, I adored Japanese cuisines especially on how they presented them but didn't have any idea on how it all tasted like.

Mango Avocado Maki (Mango, Tamago, Avocado) - Php 140 for 8pcs
Due to some pressures and hassles in work, our Boss decided to treat us in the nearby restaurant to relieve us from stress and randomly picked SushiDito Davao

SushiDito Davao (Sushi "Here" Davao) serves a variety of delightful and pleasantly made Japanese food cuisines. Their main specialties are Dragons, Makis, Nigiris, Rice Bowls, Ramen Bowls and some other Japanese recipes. The area isn't that big and there's only limited space for parking area but don't fret because you can order online through their website and they deliver right in front of your doorstep for FREE! Great, isn't it? 
These were some of our orders. Had I known 8pcs would be more than enough (because they looked really small) then I should have ordered 4pcs, haha.

Adding Star Ratings in Blogger using Graddit

Many people might be wondering if adding star ratings in their blogs could be possible. Well, the answer is simply "yes". Then the next question "How?" will follow. For those HTML adept individuals, this question may be too easy to implement within a minute but, for those who don't have enough skills and knowledge, this could be certainly difficult to handle.

Blogger, unlike WordPress, is way too complicated to handle and integrate features. No plug-ins with very limited widgets yet, one of the simpliest and easy-to-manage blogging platforms. Plus, it's owned by Google.
Back to where we are, why do we need this so called "Ratings"? Well, it's not that much important but this will definitely adds flavor to your website/blog. This will also determine how your readers likely enjoy your posts.

Below are the steps to add 5-star ratings to your posts:

1. First, you need to grab the code from Choose from the different styles that will suit your taste. In the Platform Tab, choose Blogger.

2. Then, go to Blogger and change the template's code. But before that, you have to back-up your template first before editing any code lines. To do so, go to Blogger » Template » Back-up/Restore » Download Full Template. After that, go to Edit HTML » Click Expand Widget Templates.
