Of Zeroes And Infinities

As zero represents having nothing as a beginning, infinity connotes something that lasts forever.

But on this day of zeroes and infinities - 080808 - I would have to bade goodbye. This is not a sad goodbye though, as I am simply starting anew with zero, albeit in another blog.

As businesses would say -- "We have moved to a better location, please visit us." In the same way, I am encouraging you, my readers and visitors to visit my blog in a new and better home -

This is the same travel blog, but I have merged it with my foodblog as they are closely related. In Let's Go Sago, I am introducing a blog character named...oops, I'm not saying it. It's for you to find out HERE. Click away! Paalam!

Cebu Pacific Moves All Flights to NAIA-3

Starting the 1st of August 2008, Cebu Pacific will transfer all its domestic and international flights to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3.

The move of
the country's largest domestic airline will mean a more spacious check in area with 28 new counters from the 22 old ones in the Domestic Terminal. Boarding gates will also more than double from four to nine. But don't get all excited just yet, especially if you're traveling on the first week of August. I can just imagine the adjustment nightmare and confusion that comes together with physical transfers (even for CEB staff & crew). So be prepared. I hope they would be able to iron up the frizzles by then just in time for my first international flight on the 8th of August (hehe). =)

By the way, they're celebrating this move with a system wide seat sale. P888 & P699 for one-way international and domestic routes, respectively. Check it out here.

A 3D Journey

It's a night launch party but wear your sunglasses - 3D movie glasses, that is. SM Cinemas formally introduced their Cinema 1 at The Block as D-Cinema, the first true digital cinema in the Philippines as it uses digital technologies from production, post-prod, distribution, up to projection. The featured movie was Journey to the Center of the Earth starring Brendan Fraser - an action-and-CGI-effects-packed movie really fit for 3D projection.
D-Cinema vs IMAX
My fellow watchers said that IMAX's Screen is bigger vertically and more involving. D-Cinema is more like your regular cinemas plus the 3D and great surround sounds. The eyewear is not the red & blue film child-like toy.=) It's a plastic sunglass with a darker-shaded left lens. The 3D experience was great, together with the movie's engaging journey. It ended with a hint of a sequel. =)

The Block is part of SM City North Edsa. Regular showing of the mentioned movie starts July 10. They also had a previous soft launching with the movie Beowulf last November 14, 2007.
