Man of Steel (And a Date in the New SM Aura)

Today is a Monday, the first day of the week after a long weekend. You see, we were on leave last Friday in anticipation to the contest result, which by the way, I did not won (Haha!). Anyway, like any Mondays, mejo nakakatamad pa talaga and my system is being forced to work because first day of the week means reports day. I still have a lot of items in my to do list. But, I have to get this post out of my system, before I forget about our “firsts” during the weekend. Let me start with one of our “firsts”.

SM Aura recently opened, and since we were really intrigued about the feedback about it, we decided to come and visit. We went on commute, as we still have to have our Leni checked. Leni is our car, BTW.

From Cainta, we rode a commuter FX bound to Ayala and got off Buting. From Buting, we crossed the street and rode a jeepney bound to C5 (I think). Fare is Php 8, and it is only a short distance from the terminal jump off of Market Market. We got off at the service area/parking area of SM. I am not sure if development is still in the works, but, we got there just fine. It’s not the most welcoming atmosphere kasi parang tambayan pa sya ng employees and workers, likod kasi yung lugar, and front entrance of the mall is somewhere in Serendra.

When we got inside, we were greeted by friendly guards who gave us directions. We entered the Supermarket side, thus the directions going to the actual mall area was welcoming. There were a lot of stores that have yet to open, with the inclusions of some fast food joints and stores such as Bench, however, I can clearly say that this mall is designed to cater consumers from the higher ends of society. There is also the usual SM cinema, I just did not check how many. One of those is the Imax theater (where we chose to watch Man of Steel). The supermarket was also a sight to behold. There seems to be a lot of variety of both local and international finds. Again, just like the mall itself, mas lamang pa din yung high end brands and products. Still, I am looking forward to do my grocery shopping there.

What about the movie? It was also our first time to try the Imax experience and  Babe and I loved it! There was action scenes from start to finish. Babe mentioned that there were some parts that he considered a bit confusing due to some flashbacks from Clark/Kal-El’s childhood. I did not read the comic book nor the articles from wikipedia, but I still loved the outcome. BTW, I won’t be doing a full review. Just my thoughts on how the movie was executed and my favorite parts. I loved the way Henry Cavill portrayed the role. So mature and responsible, even when Kal-El was young. I liked it that he made sacrifices then and now for what he and his parents thought were beneficial to all. Basta. This may be the reason why I cannot be a critic or a reviewer of some sort. Hindi ako magaling mag describe (Haha!) If anyone should read this, take the word of a very ordinary person like me. The movie is surely worth every centavo of the Php420 price of an Imax 3D movie. It was a good thing that we have waited for this movie, and to be able to watch it in 3D nonetheless.

In summary, we are both glad that we opted to wait for this particular movie to watch in Imax 3D.  In addition, we are also happy that we watched it in the new SM. The experience was refreshing as it was something new for us.

P.S. The “S” in the Superman logo stands for Hope. This was something that I did not expect, but I do am glad that it was that prominent in the movie, It made it more meaningful.

Transform Yourself With Schick

If you had the powers of MAN OF STEEL for one (1) week, how would you use it?

Considering that this is Superman we are talking of, I can only think of a few things. Some out of the  most selfish reasons only because I am a mom. However, if I am to steal a line from Spiderman, “with great power comes great responsibility”, thus, here are my thoughts on how I would use the Man of Steel’s power if I had it for a week:

  1. Use my flying powers to travel everywhere I want. This way, I’d get to experience other country’s culture and taste any food in my liking, especially those featured in Adam Richman’s Man vs. Food.
  2. Use my superhuman strength to scale mountains in the Philippines and eventually those abroad (IMHO, this might not be fun as it seems kasi effortless na if ever).
  3. Using my heat vision, I would carve my son’s face on the surface of the earth using my heat vision. It’s going to be so large that google maps would see it, with a quote, “Geoff was here” (tipong Mount Rushmore lang ang peg).
  4. Speed in order to get things done, like errands and houseworks that takes too much time. More quality time with my boys.
  5. Super hearing abilities, to really know who are true to me and those who aren’t (haha!)

Those are just some of what I can think of. On a more serious note, I have also asked some people as to what they think about the question. One unselfish answer caught my attention, and I think, it is worthy to be copied (with his permission, of course). He said, “ Ako wala ako gagawin. dahil magiging imbalanced ang mundo kung meron ako gawin sa 1 week na iyon.” True, no?

Anyway, since I do not have the power, and I am a woman (naks), I’d rather have my very own superman. And what man can be superman if you have a hairy face (no offense!)? Good thing, hubby regularly shaves and is clean looking all the time. Wanna know what he uses? it’s Schick!

Sure, I have been attracted to guys with goatees before, but I wouldn’t trade Babe’s smooth face with anyone anytime. Would not want to wish for more, as I have my own Superman.
