K-Pop Stuff in CNA at Malate, Manila

It was a Christmas day and my niece had not yet received her present. We wanted to surprise her by bringing her to a shop that sold K-Pop merchandise here in Manila. Fortunately, I was able to come across CNA's well-updated Facebook page after Googling the term "K-Pop stuff".

Aside from the Korean Pop merchandise and products CNA is selling, they also  have tons and tons of cutesy stuff such as fancy rings, earrings, bracelets, clips and scrunchies.
I didn't have as many pictures to show since I was prohibited in taking them so please bear with these. Of course, that would've been probably my fault because I didn't mention how I wanted to post about them in this blog. And it's not exactly a blog when I hardly take care of it, anyway.

My niece's reaction was priceless. She was in disbelief... but we weren't able to capture it because picture taking was prohibited.
Which brings me to my next concern. Yes, I understand that the owner is just cautious to not let anyone take pictures of his products, but for bloggers it's perfectly fine. Nonetheless, it's possible that someone could come in their store, pose herself/himself as a blogger, take pictures and actually copy their marketing strategy. And besides, one simply needs to visit their Facebook page (or any blogger's page that features them) to take a look at what they're selling.

See what I mean about the sucky pictures? Of course, a true k-pop fan would probably be able to identify the faces on those notebooks/sticky notes
And another thing, since normal people cannot take pictures in the store, CNA also misses out on the opportunity of Facebook micro-advertising through tagging, don't you think?

Just another one of my sucky camera pictures. But it is evident that  CNA has a lot of  K-pop stuff to choose from. They even had phone straps for couples starring Psy.
One more concern, my sister mentioned that there was this really really "scary" young sales lady who watched her like a hawk (which is perfectly understandable) sporting a not-so-friendly face and "radiating" bad vibes (I couldn't help but laugh when she mentioned the latter). My sister talked to her and gave her a nice smile and she didn't budge at all!

Feel free to click on the photo to view its original size.
Total damage... 3000+ php.
Lastly, the time we went there, they were offering free gift wrapping for purchases above 200 php. So my sister asked whether it were alright to have the three K-Pop albums (EXO, BAP and TVXQ- U-Know + Max) costing 630, 700, 990 respectively wrapped separately. At first, the cashier lady objected but my sister told her that if that were the case, she could pay for them separately since they were worth more than 200 php anyway. She eventually agreed to the request.

Fancy earrings from CNA located in Malate, Manila, Philippines
Bottom line: There's no question that CNA sells some of the best K-Pop merchandise here in the Philippines. They have the latest K-Pop albums, K-Pop merchandise, and K-Pop poster and stickers freebies available. The prices are also reasonably cheap and affordable (equivalent to online prices based in other countries). 

In addition to their K-Pop stuff, they also have a wide range of cute women accessories (fancy earrings, rings, necklaces, wigs, clamps, scrunchies and more)  that it's quite a surprise to find out that the owner is a young Korean businessman. Heck, we were lucky that they were open in the 24th and 25th of December.

However, I couldn't help share my experience with them. Somehow, I am also bothered by the way bloggers and normal customers are treated differently.

Drop by C.N.A. at the G/F Unit D University Tower, Malate, 1004 Manila, Philippines. They also have a branch at Farmers, Cubao.

Angry Birds Themed Birthday Party

So I decided to post this Angry Bird Themed Birthday Party which was held last June (or was it early July???). I helped my sister in preparing it for her son's 7th birthday. Let's start with the content of the Angry Bird gift bags which were distributed in the party.

Planning an Angry Birds Themed Party
  • Angry Birds Message Bracelet costing 10 php ea.
  • Angry Birds Snap Wrap which cost us about 50 php per 20 pcs.
  • Angry Birds "LED" finger rings with projector-like function at 20 php/pack. We placed each one in small plastic bags and made use of it as part of the "pabitin" prizes.
  • Angry Birds Keychain that were 50% discounted costing us 7.50 php/piece instead of its original 15 php price.
  • Lastly, Angry Birds Capsule Ballpen which cost 20 php ea.

As for the game prizes... these were the emcee's picks. The ones inside the carton bags are probably Angry Birds mugs.

And what's a party without a cake...

If my memory serves me right, my sister paid the caterer 7,000 php for this Angry Birds Cake.

As mentioned above, each gift bag contained an Angry Bird snap wrap and message bracelet. It also had candies selected by the party favors provider.

Booksale in SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City, Philppines

I love buying dog books. Every time I come across a Booksale shop, I would go in, check out the dog book section (if ever there was one) and find something to add in my collection. A month ago, I was able to visit SM Mall of Asia's Booksale.

Inside Booksale located in SM MOA at Pasay City, Manila Philippines
One thing's for sure, the Mall of Asia Booksale has one of the largest selection of manga books for sale. I am still scouring the city for the rest of my personal collection.

SM Mall of Asia's Booksale is a little overwhelming in size... compared to most of its branches that is.
Once, I was able to buy a Boxer for Dummies book for 5 php. ^___________^

Nokinok in Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Food, you say? Aside from getting more for less, Palawan's specialty would definitely be the crocodile meat. I had to try it when I got to Kinabuchs.

Anyway if you're a little tight on the budget, you can always go to Nokinok in the middle of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

Total cost? 247 php. There should be another Iced Tea in the corner and something else which  I totally forgot now.

I am still unsure whether they were serving it with unlimited rice, but I can definitely assure you that their food is good and they won't skimp you on servings.

Corazon Tourist Inn: Palawan's Best Hotel in the Heart of the City

Okay, so I have to admit that after scouting 3 hotels, Corazon Tourist Inn was one of the best hotels I could find. Their rooms are cozy and their staff provided excellent service.

I was searching for a room that had reliable Wi-Fi access and this is the only hotel/inn that had it while still being in my price range (the single room I stayed in for 3 days cost 1,100 php/day since I didn't avail the breakfast package). 

As you could see, all the sockets and light switches are conveniently located on the bed's headrest.

Location played a major role in making me decide to book this room in Corazon Tourist Inn. It was in the heart of the city and Nokinok as well as the drugstores, eateries and cafe (at the bottom of the hotel) were nearby.

For more details on my experience with this hotel/inn, feel free to read it at 8 Ways to Enjoy Your Business Trip to Palawan.

Baker's Hill in Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Here's another one of those Palawan posts. This is the famous Baker's Hill. I'm not really sure what their specialty is so I just decided to pick out one of everything and bring it as "pasalubong" when I went home.

What I love about Baker's Hill are the beautiful and artistic landscapes when you get into the center of it.

Baker's Hill Entrance at sunset. My camera doesn't do much to accentuate its beauty but it was quite wonderful inside.

I got to taste their Bandung tea (which cost about 55 php).

Just a picture of the many areas you can have your picture taken with the name Baker's Hill on it.

Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center

You have to check out the crocodiles in Palawan. Two of them are really huge. One in particular is named Valentino. ^^

We arrived at the Palawan Crocodile Farm a little over 5 PM. The guests were about to go home but we were luck enough to have one of their personnel give us a quick tour before they all close the cages and entrances.

The Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center is more famously known as the Palawan Crocodile Farm.

The Crocodile Farm is located along the road going to Baker's Hill and Mitra's Ranch.

Mitra's Ranch in Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Two weeks ago, I was at Palawan for an official business trip. I was in a time crunch so not a lot of sight seeing took place. Anyway, here's a picture of the beautiful Mitra's Ranch. It's a great place to go to when you only have a couple of hours to explore Palawan.

This ranch also goes by the name Rancho Sta. Monica or Sta. Monica Ranch.

Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in Pasay, Manila

My sister brought us to the DFA to have her children's passports renewed. It's no surprised that the Department of Foreign Affairs located in  2330 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City, Philippines is much more organized than the one in smaller cities. 

Department of Foreign Affairs located in Pasay City, Philippines
Before you can process your passport,  you have to have an appointment- unless you or your spouse is a government employee. Minors or children of government employees who are below the age of 18 are also allowed to apply without an appointment.

The Department of Foreign Affairs Passport Processing Area 2 is located in the 2nd floor.
Before entering the Passport Processing Area, it's always best to drop by the receptionist to receive further instructions. 
Fortunately, during the time we went to get their passports processed, there weren't a lot of people which made everything a lot quicker to finish.

Inside the Department of Foreign Affair's Passport Processing Area 2
The bad news was that my sister was still required to have a photocopy of her passport before we could submit the children's passports for processing. I and the kids waited for an hour before she came back with a printed copy of her passport. Good thing the printer at home also had a scanner.

Food for Thought: JD Roadhouse in Iloilo City, Philippines

JD Roadhouse is pretty much the food haven of students, yuppies and families alike. The food is cheap and reasonably good. The first time I have gone to JD was in high school. Back then, their famed Baked Mac cost 16 php. I would pair it up with an iced tea which was about 11 php (or somewhere between the lines).

JD Roadhouse is located near the University of San Agustin.
After more than a decade of continued patronage, JD is still one of my favorite places to dine in Iloilo.

JD Roadhouse has a variety of bread selections.
Their manager has always had the customer's best interest at heart. Once, I had requested for additional white sauce in my Fettuccine Alfredo and the manager had it replaced. There wasn't anything wrong with my order, I just wanted more sauce because this particular one didn't have as much as I was accustomed to. The manager saw it and told the waitress to serve us a new one- even though I've already taken a bite at it.

Cakes, confectioneries and bread snacks are all spotlighted in their glass displays.
JD Roadhouse is my favorite JD branch because it was the first one to introduce the Rice Square Meals. A side note though, those who miss the old taste of Baked Mac would be better off at JD Lapaz near the entrance of Iloilo Mission Hospital.

And my all time favorite is their Mixed Beef Rice Square.
It does not matter if you're just hanging out with friends or eating out with your family, in JD Roadhouse you'll always get a great meal for your hard-earned money.

Coco Fresco at SM Marikina

Thirsty? Need a refreshing, cold drink at an affordable price? Are you at SM Marikina? Drop by Coco Fresco and enjoy their Plain Buko Shake (Coco Shake) at 55 php.

The Coco Fresco logo is found in all their drinks.

No, this isn't a sponsored ad. But I sure hope it was. On Weekends and Fridays, don't be surprised if their little kiosk is teeming with customers. Their Coco Shake is delicious (and did I say cheap already?) and well worth the 55 php it costs.

Gaisano City's Newly Renovated Bowling Center

Gaisano's been renovating the place so as to attract more customers. It's definitely about time.

The Bowling Center's Entrance in Gaisano City, Iloilo City
The newly renovated Bowling Center is clean and inviting. It is located in the back most portion of Gaisano City's cinema area.

Enjoy a 10-pin computerized bowling game at 60 php in Gaisano City's Bowling Center
What's so awesome about this bowling center is it's computerized. So if you have no idea how to score... or how to bowl for that matter, this is definitely the place to start learning. They are currently charging 60 php per game and 20 php for the shoe rental (or it might have been 40 php).

Grandpa's on a roll!
Here's an interesting old man bowling his way to 4 consecutive strikes while we were surveying the place.

Breakfast at Jollibee Gaisano City,Iloilo

Why am I posting about Jollibee? That's because I had one of the nicest breakfast there. I was waiting for my sister's photos so I decided to grab the opportunity of eating my favorite Jollibee breakfast- their pancakes. Paired with my new favorite Jollibee drink, the coffee float, I felt...privileged.

Jollibee at Gaisano City located in Luna St. Lapaz, Iloilo City
I arrived by the counter at 11 am which meant the unavailability of my beloved pancakes. Determined to get those artificial pillows of digestible heaven, I pleaded hoping she would reconsider. Lo and behold, two more pancakes available! I thanked Gerly for her kind consideration and paid for my order.

Jollibee Pancake Meal costing 51 php with Coffee Float Upgrade. Total breakfast cost... 76 php
I will admit that there's a little too much ice on my coffee float. Other than that, I am quite happy for their service.

Jollibee is located at Gaisano City, Luna St., Lapaz, Iloilo City.

Jailbreaking iPhone 3GS 5.1.1 for Newbies (No Network, No Service, Searching...)

I am making this post because it took me two days to fully jailbreak an iPhone 3GS my friend asked me to. Normally,, a click of the button labeled "Jailbreak" should do the trick. However, this one in particular was already jailbroken but some of things normally enjoyed by JB users weren't there.

So here are the reasons you may have decided to use this post:

1. The newly Jailbroken Task Manager isn't working as it should be.
2. You're experiencing the "Sim is not Valid" screen.
3. You can't further activate your iPhone 3GS (just like in number 2)
4. You've updated to 5.1.1 from 3.1.3 and don't know how to deal with it.
5. You have the "No Service" signal
6. You are stuck with "Searching..."

Before we go to the nitty gritty part of Jailbreaking iPhone 3GS running on 5.1.1. You'll have to determine when your iPhone 3GS was manufactured. The Serial Number can be found in two places.

1. One is in the About section of your iPhone. That would be on Settings> General> About.
2. Two would be on your Sim Tray (this is when you are unable to go to the About page). So pop out that Sim Tray and check for your Serial Number.

How to determine iPhone's Serial Number?

You will need to determine the date/week of the iPhone's manufacture date. Disregard the first two serial numbers. The next three are the crucial ones.

Say for example your SN is  86022******

Disregard 86
022 means it was created during the 22nd week of 2010 (where 0 in 022 is the year and 22 is the week)

Why redsn0w?

First, I tried Absinthe 2.0.4 and Snowbreeze. 

Snowbreeze (with the help of iTunes) was able to successfully customize the firmware but unfortunately, I encountered the "No Service" and "Searching" problem.

Absinthe 2.0.4 will not re-Jailbreak an already Jailbroken device. It was a Rocky Racoon jailbreak issue.

Now, we need to prepare the following:

Redsn0w_win_0.9.14b1 or later version

Now What?!?

NOTE: If you've Jailbroken your phone already, don't forget to back up your data and restore your phone to a regular, non-customized firmware. Before we start anything else, don't forget to attach your phone to the cable.

ANOTHER NOTE: For Windows XP users, you'll need to right-click the redsn0w application and Run as Administrator.

1. Open redsn0w
2. Go to Extras
3. Click Select IPSW
4. Select the Firmware of your iPhone 3GS ( iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore)

5. The firmware should be successfully identified (Bottom Picture Labeled 1)
6. You will be prompted whether your bootrom is New or Fixed (Bottom Picture Labeled 2). Make sure you've read this prompt (especially the one highlighted in RED)!

7. Now, you can select Back and click on Jailbreak. After "Preparing jailbreak data" is done. Place a check on "Install Cydia" and "Install iPad baseband".

IMPORTANT NOTE: A prompt will appear again saying that you might brick your phone if you've ticked this and your phone was manufactured later than the 34th week of 2011 (e.g. SN **134******)

The bottom picture should be pop out after clicking on Next.

If your iPhone is connected, there should be the words "Connected: iPhone 3GS (.....).

8. You can now either follow the prompt by clicking on "Next" to provide you the process of doing DFU mode or you can download iREB in the link to teach you how.

9. In DFU Mode, a new message will pop out in Redsnow saying "Fetching iPad Baseband files (please be patient)."

NOTE: This took approximately 5 minutes in my machine. Then there will be more messages such as 

Exploiting limera1n
Uploading first stage
Uploading second stage
Uploading ram disk
Then, we wait while your iPhone does its magic. Complete the iPhone prompts and insert your sim to see if you get a signal. If not... here are the next steps to follow.

10. Open Cydia
11. Press on Manage> Sources> Edit> Add
12. Type in and press on Add Source
13. Wait for the "black" screen to be done.
14. Go to search and type in Ultrasnow Fixer.
15. Install that and look for Ultrasnow. Install this as well.

In a minute, your phone should have found your network. If not, reboot your iPhone. Time to install Installous. The latest as of this post's creation is Installous 5. Follow these steps:

16. Follow steps 10-12.
17. Type in and press on Add Source.
18. Wait for the "black" screen and press "Restart Springboard".

Viola...PHEW! I hope this helps.
Some of these steps were taken from the following references:

Hungry Ninja, Iloilo

I know I've been putting this post off. I can't help but procrastinate in updating this blog especially since I've been a bit busy with the other one. 

Anyway, this is just a series of pictures I've taken from my visit at Hungry Ninja. Their food is good with prices affordable to students and yuppies alike. 

While waiting for your food, you can read the Hungry Ninja's story.
One of the things that makes Hungry Ninja stand out is their wall design. It's a story about a ninja who visited different countries to perfect a number of Asian recipes. Its vibrant colors and comical appeal can definitely catch one's attention.

If you're done with the story and the food still isn't there, then at least you've spent some of your waiting time productively.
I've been tinkering with Photoshop so kindly bear with it. The pictures weren't in superb form so I had to dabble with editing it to make them presentable.

Order #24 down the drain. Prices are on the receipt at the bottom.
And I was supposed to document my visit... I couldn't help it. I was too hungry to mind. Worry not, I definitely took a picture of my second serving.

Order #26. The Banana Fritters were good but my personal favorite is the Mango Float.
Here were the orders I've made. Feel free to check the prices and the corresponding pictures above..

Marymart Mall Iloilo

I have no idea what to say about Marymart Mall. It's been there ever since I've known how to surf the web. I recall the days when Concept was one of the sole providers of prepaid internet. I used to spend hours and hours staring at the CRT monitor using mIRC and surfing the web for 40php an hour (or as it 60php back then).

Marymart Mall Second Floor. This is where the newer Light Tops and Concept are located.
One of the places I kept coming back to was the food court. I recall the noon time band that used to play almost everyday. I still love eating at Merto's. Their leche flan and chocolate cake are one my favorite treats.

Ever wondered where the cellphone repair kiosks and shops went? Here they are clustered in the third floor, directly above Handyman.
I'm guessing the management had them transferred because it looked better when they stayed in a single area. This also meant that the garments being sold at the 3rd floor have a higher probability of being sold since more people are going there.

It's not the best camera but it will do in the mean time.

Book Latte: Books and Coffee in a Cozy Little Nook

It had been months since I've first eyed this tiny nook in the corner of Robinsons Mall, Iloilo. It's not located inside the mall but rather outside where the bustling streets of the city are apparent. It's the type of shop people will barely notice.

Finally, I was able to find some time to visit Book Latte. It's a coffee shop with shelf after shelf of books- the ones avid readers love to talk about it book clubs. It was pretty obvious that this shop was created purposely out of love rather than profit.

Today's Special is conveniently situated on top of our comfy chairs. Their contact number and location is also written in the blackboard. Oh, did I forget to mention the UNLIMITED COFFEE at 65?
After scorching ourselves in the sun's blazing rays, it was refreshing to come into the air-conditioned establishment. The counter is up front which makes ordering a whole lot easier.

Kindly bear with my photos. They are the best I can come up with using the Samsung Galaxy Y.
I asked for their best-seller frappe. The person in front of the counter recommended Caramel Macchiato.

Served in a tall glass, Book Latte's Caramel Macchiato looked visually enticing. As for the price, I would've preferred it a tad cheaper than 95 php. Taste-wise, I have no concerns there. It was pretty good.
In case you decide to become a member of Book Latte, you'll be entitled to a 10% discount on their coffee and beverages.

Their annual membership rates are as follows:

STUDENTS: P180 / year

NON-STUDENTS: P220 / year

For their menu, we sampled their Hungarian Sausage with Hash Brown and Eggs Breakfast at 148 php.

Hungarian Sausage with Hash Brown and Eggs for breakfast, anyone?
So this wraps up my Book Latte experience. On a positive side, I've seen some Christopher Pike books that I haven't read yet which would probably be a good reason for me to visit them again. Their selection of books aren't as wide as a library but it could definitely be considered a nice hang out place in the city. 

For more information about Book Latte, kindly click this photo. They are open from Monday to Saturday at 9 am to 8 pm. You may contact Book Latte at 333-25-74.
As of now, I still do not find the need to be a member. However, I do think this shop is special as it is a first in Iloilo and should be visited by people who love books and coffee.

Please bear with these photos. I do not have a scanner at the moment and this was the best my camera could do.
