[Events] Tokyo Tokyo Opening..

Yesterday was the opening of one of the new dining place here in Davao. Tokyo Tokyo is a Japanese fast-food restaurant that has existed for 30 years. The country’s #1 Japanese fast food chain finally arrives in the VisMin Region – serving their signature dishes to Davaoeños first. As they open their first branch outside Luzon, they wanted to provide the Davaoeños a new Japanese food experience in terms of their affordable price and quality food, not to mention that they serve Unlimited Rice!  I was excited to try their meals since I don’t usually get to eat at this Japanese fast food in Manila. I would say, I like their Tempura, Beef Misono & California Maki.

[Events] Samsung launches its NEW Wireless Audio Dock

Samsung has invited a few bloggers to their newest addition of products, which is the Wireless Audio Dock. A first-class Wireless Audio with Dock, the DA-E750 is the world’s first dual-docking system for the premium audiophile that supports both Samsung GALAXY devices and Apple iOS devices—via both docked and wireless connectivity.

“The DA-E750 is a world-class audio system that underscores Samsung’s commitment to extend its strong leadership in the premium market,” said Amby Navarro-Molina, SEPCO Product Marketing Head . “As audio is an integral part of the overall home entertainment experience, we’re proud to provide consumers around the world with superior sound quality that can be enjoyed in the home.”

Allowing audio enthusiasts to enjoy music the way it was meant to be heard, Samsung’s new vacuum tube amplifier technology provides a warmer, more natural sound compared to conventional audio systems that use transistors. By also combining the vacuum tube with a digital amplifier, the DA-E750 reduces unnecessary, harsh sound distortions—while its 2.1-channel woven glass fiber speakers and powerful built-in subwoofer produce 100 watts of crystal-clear sound with enhanced bass for a quality music experience.

Delivering a total wireless solution, the DA-E750 provides superior convenience, supporting wireless audio file playback via AllShare for Samsung GALAXY devices and AirPlay for Apple devices, or via Bluetooth® 3.0 for additional devices. The DA-E750 also features an analog (composite) input and a USB port to play audio files directly from a thumb drive, music player or portable hard drive—supporting MP3, WMA and WAV file formats.

The elegant design of the DA-E750 exudes the highest level of sophistication by combining classic design elements with a touch of luxury. The sleek high gloss wood finish is available in either mahogany color

which is accentuated by the warm glow from the vacuum tubes inside the docks when in operation.

With the DAE750 launch, Samsung also released an online commercial video showcasing the spectacular “Flavor of Sound” the wireless Audio with Dock delivers. The video stars George Craig, lead singer of the British indie rock band One Night Only.

Other Wireless Audio Dock models are also available such as the DA-E550, DA-E570, and DA-E650.

SM Cinema Brings the IMAX Experience to Davao!!

SM Cinema, the country’s leading film exhibitor, continues its quest to elevate this country’s cinematic experience by bringing in state-of-the-art theater technology. Introducing the IMAX Experience to the Filipinos is one of SM Cinema’s ways of delivering world-class quality entertainment.
One of the highlights in the opening of SM Lanang Premier is the opening of the IMAX Theatre. IMAX Lanang opens with 467 seats and a digital projection system that can support both 2D and 3D films.
IMAX is the world’s leading film entertainment technology. It utilizes laser-aligned digital audio feed in addition to a revolutionary projection system that enhances image quality and display, delivering unparalleled and realistic sound and visuals.

IMAX is more than a technology; it is an experience. The IMAX Theatre is designed to fill your field of vision and engulf you in sound so powerful that it is almost tangible. IMAX screen is several times larger than the screen of the standard theater, delivering an image so large that it fills your entire field of view. The screen is slightly curved and the seats are angled to allow audience to have an unobstructed view of what they are watching. The IMAX image is several times larger than any other cinema format, offering far greater resolution than the 35mm film. All these contribute to bringing images to life like no other—making you feel you are part of the movie and not just a mere spectator.
The immersive movie-viewing experience that IMAX brings is made possible by IMAX Digital Media Remastering (DMR), the transformative process used to enhance and optimize the image and sound of Hollywood feature films for the IMAX format. During this process, IMAX spends hours, weeks and months working directly with the filmmakers and technical teams of each film on dozens of ways to enhance the movie, including adjusting the saturation, contrast, brightness, re-mixing the soundtrack, and a bunch of other variables in virtually every frame.
The result delivers an unparalleled image and sound quality that is designed specifically for IMAX theatres. Watching a film in an IMAX Theatre gives you a unique experience; it allows you to lose yourself in the scenes unfolding before you. With IMAX, you are absorbed by the movie.
Through SM Cinema, Filipinos are able to enjoy the IMAX Experience–an experience that takes you beyond the edge of your seats to a world you have never imagined.

[Events] Greenwich Crispy Glazed Chicken

I’ve always been a chicken lover, whenever we eat out either with family or friends, I always order anything chicken. Most of the time, I would end up ordering either fried chicken or barbque chicken.

Greenwich invited us bloggers for a pizza blowout that was held at Greenwich SM Davao branch.

They introduced their new product  the Crispy Glazed Chicken. Its similar to fried chicken, but dipped in this sweet n tangy sauce. Since Korean twice fried chicken is popular in the market, Greenwich also has their version. I love how the chicken was juicy inside n very crispy outside. They are served  in a meal with rice or on a barkada bucket.

“We are very delighted to serve the Greenwich Crispy Glazed Chicken as the latest addition to our growing menu,” declares Joanne Ingalla, Greenwich Brand Manager. “We are definite that more and more Greenwich customers will have an extraordinary time enjoying this equally extraordinary meal.”The new Greenwich Crispy Glazed Chicken is set to satisfy any craving with an extraordinary fried chicken packed with extraordinary goodness. A special marinade seeps through each extra large piece, which is then cooked to an inviting crispiness. The result is an extraordinary fried chicken that is extra juicy and bursting with flavor at every bite. And as an enticing finish, the extraordinary chicken is wrapped in a lip-smacking sweet and mildly spicy glaze that lingers on the taste buds. It is served with steaming cup of rice to complete a filling meal.

The best part of it all is that the Greenwich Crispy Glazed Chicken meal is available at an affordable P79.
