KATNISS WINS IN HUNGER GAMES third-best opening weekend ever with $155 mil

KATNISS WINS not only in the Hunger Games but also in the box-office results!
The Hunger Games opened stronger than all four Twilight films.

It’s the third-biggest opening weekend ever, behind only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 ($169.2 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.4 million).

It’s also the best debut ever for a non-sequel, crushing 2010′s Alice in Wonderland ($116.1 million), and it represents the top opening weekend for any picture outside the summer movie season.

CHICKEN DELISH

Upon the invitation of a fellow blogger, we visited the Best Food Forward fair this March 2012. It was raining cats and dogs when we arrived at the event being held at the NBC Tent, Bonifacio Global City. It was a good thing that we have an umbrella with us in the car or else we will be soaking wet.

After we showed our tickets (courtesy of Richard Co of Tales from the Tummy; thank you so much Richard and Irene!), the receptionist asked us to fill up a survey form which they said will be included in the raffle. Then off we went inside the tent and began our food exploration.

 

Inside, Chicken Delish is one of the stalls that caught my attention. It has an attractive poster that is not only eye catching but also very colorful. Chicken Delish sells fried chicken twice fried and coated in tasty sauces that enhance the taste of the fried chicken.

Annalyn Jusay Zoglmann and her husband own Chicken Delish. Manning the booth of Chicken Delish is Annalyn Jusay Zoglmann’s better half. He said Chicken Delish started with their passion for eating. 
 I was given 4 yummy sauce choices by Annalyn’s husband. I got to taste four sauce varieties:
  • Korean
  • Pinoy Bbq
  • Sriracha
  • Soy and Garlic flavor
I used different dip sticks to taste each of the 4 sauce flavors. And boy, I was bowled over by the delicious sauces!
The Korean Barbecue sauce is my favorite. So I chose Korean Barbecue Sauce for my chicken. The cost is P90 for Four-piece chicken wings while P120 for two-piece drumsticks. Imagine? You are certainly getting more than what you paid for!
 
These are the Korean Barbecue flavored chicken pieces served by Annalyn’s husband. He personally deep-fried again the fried chicken pieces until they turned golden brown. He then coated the Fried Chickens with Korean Barbecue sauce and sprinkled sesame seeds on top of each chicken piece as a final touch. This is very delicious! I super like this. I wonder how he cooked the chicken pieces into near perfection. You see, he fried the chicken pieces into flaky and crunchy crusts that don’t sag when the sauce were applied.

 You could buy the sauce in this special bottle for only Php 150.00

Verdict: Chicken Delish Korean Barbecue Flavored Chicken is a must try! It is absolutely delicious. I love good finger food! 
This restaurant is waiting to be discovered! You’ll definitely love Chicken Delish. I am sure you’ll enjoy its fantastic tasting chicken dishes as much as I did. So what are you waiting for?

According to the owners, whether you want to dine-in or take-out, you could drop by there location at their stand alone store location @ Caltex Gas Station, Dona Soledad Avenue, Better Living Subdivision, Paranaque City.

 

BULLYING IS UNCOOL

 
BULLYING IS UNCOOL
 
BULLYING other people whether you are in preschool or at work or with a group is uncool.  A lot of people had experience bullying one time or another.  And bullying is never ever right. So if someone bullied you don’t just sit there and cry, report it to proper authorities like your teacher or the principal and to your parents. ( But if they too, is uncool then that’s a problem).
This guidebook was illustrated by Angel Villanueva. I never met her personally though, so I really don’t know the story behind the book. The book is so precise and concise and I believe the illustration conveys to the reader how important it is for parents and teachers to act before it is too late. I don’t know if this is for sale or just part of the exhibit at the 5th floor of Shangri-La Mall in Edsa, Quezon City that opened last Saturday, March 24, 2012. If this is for sale I think parents ought to buy this for their kids.
The book will be worth every penny! This can help your kids act accordingly if they were being bullied by their classmates or peers. Rather than buying trash books why don’t you look for this one?
 If all else fails, there is karma! And it is very powerful. Happy Reading!

Yes, folks! The buzz around town is true. Katrina Halili has finally admitted that she is Three (3) months pregnant. The popular villainess of various GMA7 television show is a far cry from her dark screen persona as she discussed her pregnancy with “Startalk” host Ricky Lo on Saturday, March 24, 2012.
“Three months po. Last February ko po nalaman,” she told Ricky.

She also admitted  it took a day before the fact that she’s an expectant mother sunk in. Katrina said  she thought of her career and her future in showbiz.

“Ready na ba akong may ibang taong iisipin? Masaya ako. Blessing ito,” she expressed.

The pregnancy, she added, came at a time when hers and Kris Lawrence’s (the father of her unborn child) mom expressed their wish to have a grandchild.

“Blessing ka and mamahalin kita and gagawin ko ang lahat para maging maganda ang future mo,” was Katrina’s message to her baby.

NAILS.GLOW AT DON ANTONIO’S NORTHGATE IS NOW OPEN TO SERVE YOU

Hello beautiful people of Don Antonio Heights in Quezon City! Are you aware of the new hand and foot Spa in the neighborhood?

If you don’t know it yet, then celebrate because the affordable Nails.Glow Manicure and Pedicure is now available at Don Antonio Heights in Quezon City. Yes, it’s good news indeed for everyone in the neighborhood.

They invited several bloggers to try their services for free. I arrived at around seven in the evening. They asked me to list down the services that I wanted to avail. I wanted to have facial, candle ear wax and body massage but they gave me free Hand and Foot Paraffin treatment instead.

It was my first ever Hand Paraffin treatment. But during my PT session at the hospital late last year, I often see other patients availed of this in the hospital for Php 50 to 75.00. It looks like this:

I think they have the same price at Nails.Glow.  They melted a candle wax then dip my hands on the hot liquid then wrapped a plastic and gloves on both of my hands.
 
  It was virtually the same procedure with the Foot Paraffin.

 
I enjoyed the hand and foot paraffin and will surely try that again another time. 


At around 11 p.m. they finally gave me a body massage. Here is the massage room.

“Enjoy the STAY, experience the GLOW” only at NAILS.Glow, your neighborhood hand and foot spa located at 18 Don Jose St., Don Antonio Heights, Quezon City, owned by the very amiable owner Tiffanie Cheng.

Imagine, at fraction of the cost, you get better service and better value for your hard-earned money.
Check them out @ the Northgate of Don Antonio Village where NAILS.Glow seeks to provide only the best in all its services, housed in a modern zen haven, promising a very relaxing and satisfying stay, all at very affordable and “pang-masa” rates!
If you will be commuting, just alight by the pedestrian overpass near Ever Gotesco, then cross via the pedestrian overpass and walk your way to the northgate of Don Antonio Villa. Voila! You’ll see that signage at your right side.
