First Bike Ride

This week past weekend was my first ride with my new bike,and it was a hell of experience. I bought my bike at Cycle Shack SM Megamall(due to credit card terms and big discount). So I tried to tale it home by standing in line at the taxi bay. An hour passed by and no taxi came. So I decided to try my luck at the fx terminal. The dispatcher agreed that I can put my bike at the back of the fx provided I play for the other seats. 2 hours passed and no fx insight. Turns out, EDSA became a huge parking lot. Luckily, a van came that was bound for Monumento. I took the chance and rode it. I arrived at SM Northed later and tried to take a taxi, but they don't want to. They say that my bike can scratch their interior. I had no choice but to use my new bike to ride home while wearing a huge backpack, a duffle bag and a body bag. I forgot how I managed to do that but I arrived home safely. But wait there's more! As I secure my bike, I noticed a huge dog poo at my front wheel! What a night!

Review: Wreck-It Ralph

Remember Toy Story? A lot of toys from our childhood made a cameo appearance on that trilogy and it made millions. Here comes another movie from Disney and this time, characters from our video game childhood are gracing the big screen. Since I first saw the trailer, I told myself that I will watch this film no matter what. And when it finally shown here, I rushed to the nearest movie house and watched it. Is it worth the hype? or Is this a disappointment to all the  gamers out there? Find out after the jump

Review: The Avengers

Characters like the Iron Man, Thor and Captain America sold millions in their respective movies. What if you place them under one movie, add a mean green raging monster, a sultry assassin, and a well, an archer. Will it sell? or will it try to outshine each other and create a catastrophe?

New Year, New Blog Content?

So it's 2012 already? I haven't posted here since October 31, 2011 and it sure was a very long time ago (insert last year joke here) Anyway, to all my old time followers (are there any?) You may notice that my site has undergone a facelift. Yep, the old design was not not allowed by the Blogger team so I managed to get a template and edit some points of it so that my blog don't look like sh*t.

I think most of my followers got tired already because no decent update was made here for a while. I guess I owe it to my laziness and recent indulgence to photography. So as part of my "New Year's resolution" I'll be updating this site at least once or twice a week.

So what would be the topic for today's blog post?

Well..I'll just have a recap of what I've acheived last year and what would be my goal this year. Sounds boring right? Just bear with me here. This is my first post for 2012 anyway.
