The Echo - A Movie Review
Finally, I was able to watch a movie in a movie theater in a long while. I was able to sneak this in after an event in Makati (Thanks to Az).
The Echo, of course, is a remake of Sigaw, a Pinoy thriller featuring Richard Gutierrez and Angel Locsin. Yam Laranas directed both versions. Iza Calzado played the same role in both versions.
The sound quality is interesting because the key in the story is the sound, which places a tingle on your spine with the scare factor. For a guy who feels he might die from heart problems, this is scary.
Support the movie, it will scare you. Bring a friend. So that you can have someone to hold on to.
My First Fro-Yo ever.
That was at the Greenbelt branch of Red Mango. I wish that place had wi-fi. They had plugs which was conducive for laptop users.

The Texas Roadhouse Experience
Texas Roadhouse Grill opened their first branch last March 2007 @ Bonifacio High Street. Their El Pueblo branch opened in November that same year. I have always been intrigued by them every time i pass by the area and i finally got my chance to dine there.
I was able to partake of the following dishes when I was there:
This soup has a Piknik added and it is yummy. Considering the cool weather we have been experiencing, it is a nice complement.
Jesse James Sampler: Yummy succulent flavor with the added sauces.
Baby Back Ribs: The meat was well done and delicious. I love eating corn and the fries were a nice touch.
Rib-Eye: Whoa. Succulent. Delicious. Beware those with heart issues. LOL. I mean, it is really a delicious dish. You would really savor the flavor of the steak. Veggies and mashed potato accentuate the meat.
Shrimp and Salmon Skewer: Those who like seafood can partake of this sweet dish. There is a lemon sauce that gives flavor to the seafood.
Mighty Oreo Mud Pie: You look at the dessert. It is HUGE. Best shared with a friend, or a date. Uber sweet.
Just as a footnote, it is neat that the grilling area is visible, so you can see how your food is being made to order as you prefer.
Wi-fi is enabled in the area, and if you drink, there is a bar. A smoking area is present as well. The also have TV's set up so you can watch whatever is on. The people there are wonderful and great. Cowboy up!
Texas Roadhouse Grill is open daily from 11 am to 12 mn Sundays to Thursdays and from 11 am until 2 am Fridays and Saturdays (tel. nos 635-6715 to 16). Its branch in the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig is located at Bldg 1, Bonifacio High Street and is open daily from 11am to 12mn Sunday to Thursday and until 2am Fridays and Saturdays (tel.

ramblings over nothing
i have been a bit active lately with blog events over the past week, from food extravaganzas to techie new stuff. expect those stuff to trickle in slowly. hopefully (at least) one per day. it is admittedly hard to balance that with my work schedule. i have been busy as well with my other blog, keeping it updated as well. i think i am really engrossed with it. after all, i love sports.
again, don't forget to register. last day is 6 weeks away.
once i settle my finances, time to purchase cd's. i really miss that.

Get up stand up
what was on? just a simple stand-up session with mike unson and his cartel. i, unfortunately, missed out on paul and nina's performance, but i still enjoyed the night overall.
we are scratching the surface with stand-up. and i am not talking about the gay ones that are very prevalent everywhere. i am referring to the likes of mike, tim tayag, stanley chi, etc. we can be funny without the excess that gay comics provide. there is a reason why i haven't really been comfortable with those kinds of comics.
i personally know a couple of really funny people, so there is something good with this kind of entertainment.
anyway, speaking of stand up, someone just made a move for good pr by sliding down and having the sacrifice. now, will noynoy be able to fully decide as to whether he ought to be running. among ed and grace padaca have already taken themselves out for him. with 2010 being 3 months away, the intensity approaches.
RIP Ka Erdy, but Monday being declared a holiday for you smacks political in nature.
