Cinemalaya 8: Full Force

Just got home from Cinemalaya 2012. Even with the weather, I managed to survive my loooooooooooooong tiiiiiiiiiiiiring day.


12:45 – watched The Animals by Gino M. Santos
I guess you can say that this film promotes awareness regarding this generation’s young adults. Keywords: Vices, Fraternity, School… :p
You can prolly guess why the title is legit for this movie and because Gino is a Party Animal. (lol)

12/14/11 – Mall Of Asia’s Ferris Wheel

So as to my previous blog about MOA’s New attraction being similar with the other tourist attractions like the London eye, etc.

Today, we went back to MOA for a shoot, and voila ! the Ferris Wheel is done!

My sources say that it operates by December 16th; 4pm.

This ride has two kinds, the Regular, and (drum roll please) V.I.P.

Regular are priced 100+ but probably not higher than 200php (hopefully)

V.I.P – would probably be 200+ and the only different between the Regular and VIP is the seat and the tinted ‘privacy’ windows.

So there, trust that I shall return to MOA and tell you more about this shindig. 😀


the Wheel of the Future

Mall Of Asia, builds its own Carnival by the bay.

with the feel of Santa Monica Ferris Wheel, The Singapore Flyer, and the London Eye.

So, last night me and my friend went to Mall of Asia to watch the movie ‘Immortals’. Then after, we went to the sea side and went for a little walk. It was already midnight, and there’s still tons of people wandering around.

A lot of attractions were added by the bay, tons of kiddy rides.

Then to my surprise, I saw a big white snow flake like infrastructure. Its still unfinished but I got a hinch that it would be MOA’s own, Ferris Wheel.

I bet the construction of this building will finish before the end of the year.

Thinking about it further, I bet Henry Sy will have extra income with MOA’s new ‘Storyland’. Warning though, where MOA is standing, its a reclamation area, a piece of the ocean waiting to be returned. And with the unpredictable weather, you dunno where the money goes after a serious weather malfunction.
