Eastwood Cinema in 3D!

Eastwood Mall now opens its cinema with 3D last May 19, 2010. With all the other cinemas going digital, Eastwood made it special using the Christie Solaria CP2230 Digital Cinema Projector, the brightest digital cinema projector in the Christie Solaria series. It was indeed so bright even with the 3D glasses! The cinema holds 215 seating and tickets can be bought at P350.00 (comes with popcorn and drink)

The launching of the Eastwood 3D cinema was made more awesome as Shrek Forever After was shown among the many first in the world.

The invited guests enjoyed the cocktails before the movie and the movie itself, Shrek Forever After. There was even a free photo meet and greet with Shrek outside the cinema.

SM Cinema's BIG SHOT

SM Cinema's search for the best independent film makers in the country, “Big Shot”, was launched last May 5, and is set to revolutionize the Philippine film industry. The launch was simultaneous with the special screening of Bakal Boys, an indie film about children metal divers, supported by Apogee Productions, San Beda College, and the Aquino Foundation.

The screening was graced by the presence of respectable personalities like Fr. Aloysius Maranan, San Beda College Rector; Apogee Production's Mr. Albert Almendralejo; and Mr. Rapa Lopa of the Aquino Foundation. During his speech, Mr. Lopa emphasized the role of the cinemas as innovative venues for social awareness.

As everyone appreciated the well-applauded execution of Bakal Boys, Mr. Allan Florendo, SM Cinema's Sales and Marketing Head, went on to encourage the guests to join “Big Shot” and be a part of Philippine movie history.

Big Shot is open to all aspiring student film makers from any reputable college or university. From June 15 to August 15, participants may submit their best works which can be a short film or a full-length movie. SM Cinema will then choose the top three (3) movies, and will award P500,000 each to the top three film makers. These film makers, with the help of renowned mentors, will each produce a full-length movie about “modern day heroism”. SM Cinema will show these movies during its Indie Film Festival on January 2011, right after the Manila Film Festival.

Sykes HR, best team ever!

We celebrated our HR Team Building at MMLDC together with Legacy ICT HR team. It was the first team building with the two teams together. We were not able to push thru with our team building last year because the date that was set for out EK team building was the day Ondoy was made known.

The day started with breakfast at the Areva Pavillion, then derecho sa Orientation headed by Bea and JV. It didn't turn out to be a simple day for us. It was an action packed day for someone who is just sitting all day face to face with a computer or a pile of papers and is cuddled by the air-conditioned office. Haha!

The games were cool! Some were easy and fun, and others were just hard to strategize.

Soar and Dive - There will be a puzzle to be complated, 6 members will get 1pc when they go up the tower and will dive in the zip line to meet the other members of the team.
Goal: must complete the puzzle with the shortest time.
Game Level: EASY.

Group Picture - Team members will have 3 poses to reflect the theme FUN... US ONE, and will choose one best picture to represent the team.
Game Level: not that EASY

Though it All - 9 team members will go thru only one hole in the web the shortest possible time. Game Level: EASY
Puzzle Crawlers - 3 members will find the puzzle pieces hidden in the sand, 3 members will transport the puzzle piece to the 3 members who will form and finish the puzzle.
Game Level: HARD (no one finished the game)

Walk The Talk - 6 members will walk blindfolded inside the swamped mazed guided by the leader.
Game Level: EASY

The last game was FLIP SIDE, 10 members will be stepping on a carpet and slowly they will have to flip the other side of the carpet while they are on it.
Game Level: HARD!

Processing: The games were EASY, Medium and HARD! But we were all able to make it, enjoyed playing it and had FUN! All the teams enjoyed the game because they had fun while playing it and the there was no diversion even though it was the first time for some to meet. They listened to each other and cooperated with one another. At the end of the day, it was really FUN... US ONE!

Adidas Originals Street Party

Adidas Originals celebrated Indviduality through its Street Party held at Venice Piazza Mall Open Park in Mckinley Hill last May 7, 2010.

The Street Party campaign is a call to action, an invitation to reclaim the street in celebration of the raw spirit of creativity and Originality. It celebrated the roots of authenticity and Originality at its core - the street, the very place where Originality comes to life as artists, athletes, musicians, and creative innovators are inspired to create.

The program was hosted by Mia, Slick Rick and Sam YG.

The Adidas 2010 Sports Collection that herald the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The Japanese streetwear deisgn in the OT-Tech range, Iconic collaborations with French Grafitti artist fafi and cinema Icon Star Wars fashion collection.

It was a night filled with almost everything you will see on the streets - foods such as barbecues, hotdogs, and fishball; dancers, beaboxers, painters, skate boarders and foosball players, even street magician! Attenders of the Street party were not only treated with free food but also with free drinks! Free stuff includes Hena Tatto, face Paint and personalized Adidas shoes (for those who brought their own pair)

This sense of play continues in the adidas Originals theme throughout 2010 as adidas highlights collections that reflect what makes adidas Orginals truly unique: a diverse mix of styles and stories, collaborations and creativity.

Best Street Party! Thanks Khit!

Vote and DOugh your part - Krispy Kreme

Tomorrow is the highly anticipated ELECTION DAY. The streets are already filled with campaign posters and commercial of candidates have been in constant since the national campaign period started. The limelight has been on who to vote tomorrow, May 10, 2010. But what about HOW TO VOTE?

For the first time in the country, an automated voting system will be used by registered voters for the upcoming elections. A mock election conducted by COMELEC showed that some voters did not know where and how to cast their ballots. Efforts from various sectors like on-air commercials are being made to be able to reach out to the voters in introducing it - and KRISPY KREME is one of them.

KRISPY KREME devised a way to help spread awareness on how to vote on May 10, 2010. When you go to any of their stores you will be handed a sample ballot as their order sheets, so when you order you just shade the oval of the doughnut and drink of your choice and viola you're done! "This will help them prepare for the real, automated voting system." Mark Gamboa, Marketing Manager of Krispy Kreme said. So when you vote on May 10, its just like ordering doughnuts, but instead of food you'll see candidates names.

Other than sharing the knowledge, the mock ballot Krispy Kreme that was created will also encourage people to actually exercise their right to vote. Krispy Kreme also produced limited edition Krispy Kreme VOTE 2010 doughtnuts that will be available from May 8-10.

You may visit any of the following Krispy Kreme Branches: Bonifacio High Street, Greenhills Shopping Center Drive-Thru, SM Mall of Asia, Trinoma Cinema Level, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia Drive-Thru, Ayala Avenue, Robinsons Galleria, Gateway Mall, Glorietta 4, SM City Annex (North EDSA), Annex 2 SM Fairvew, Eastwood, Marquee Mall Pampanga, SM San Lazaro & SM Manila or call 0917-8053000. Also, be sure to log on to www.krispykreme.com.ph and be a Friend of Krispy Kreme to get updates.

The Iron Man 2 Movie Review

I always thought that book/comic based movie is an epic fail of the book itself. But there are some movies that proved my study wrong. Iron Man, though based on the Marvel comics character of the same name, is great action packed movie that's one of the exception of my synthesis. The first Iron Man movie was released last 2008 and the sequel this year. The movie is more that awesome and is highly recommended to watch. There, 'nuff said.

The Bounty Hunter Movie Review

The Bounty Hunter is a light and feel good movie. After watching the movie, it actually got me into thinking that even though two people have grown apart and if they are meant to be together, there will always be ways and situation that would draw them closer to each other.
