My Dream Camerassssssssssss – CANON!

I got a chance to attend the media launch of Canon last day at the Blue Leaf Pavillion in McKinley Hill. First, I’m so eager to attend this gathering because I’m looking for camera. I’m on a budget but I’m looking for good camera that will help me enhance my blogging activities. And according to some friends, Canon is the best choice for this budgeted hobby.

As I enter the hall, I was amazed by the nice design of the said gathering –Japanese style. And then it dawns upon me why the event was titled “Risshun”, the Japanese word for the start of Spring. It was so refreshing, so wonderful, a nice cliché to what this event was for.

As the season of Spring starts, Canon introduces their new President and CEO, Mr. Alan Chng. A former vice president for business imaging solutions of Canon Singapore and now the newly appointed president and CEO of Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc, Mr. Chng is married to a Filipino, so I think he knows what Filipino likes, most especially when it comes to photography.

Canon Philippines also introduces their new head office. To better serve its customers and partners, Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. (CMPI) has relocated to a new office at the seventh floor of Commerce and Industry Plaza, Campus corner Park Avenues, McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. 

I’ve been to their old office, and I can say that this is a big leap for the company, just right to upgrade the image since Canon is the leading camera brand in the country now.

And now, my most favourite part of this gathering, the launching of their new models. Again, I’m on a budget, I need a camera that will somehow suffice my need for picture taking, but when I saw their new models…. Oh, GOD! Santa Clause, please hear my wishes now!

Here are my favourites:
The Canon Powershot SS210 IS – Price: Coming Soon

14.1 megapixels, 14x optical zoom, 3.0” wide purecolor LCD 11 G, Digic 4 image processor, smart auto for stills and movies, smart flash exposure and stereo sound compatible HD movies.
Canon Digital IXUS 130 IS – Price: Php24, 950.00

14.1 megapixels, 28mm wide-angle lens, ultra-slim at just 17.8mm, smart auto + smart exposure, HD movies _ HDMI connector, low light mode, smart shutter and with new effects like fish-eye mode and miniature effect. I LOVE THIS ONE SUPER!

And lastly, if I even I win in a lottery I’ll buy this one.

Canon EOS 550D – Price: Coming Soon

High image quality with 18 megapixel CMOS sensor, Digic 4 imaging processor, normal ISO speed of 100-6400 (Canon’s first entry model with normal ISO speed of 6400), high speed, high precision, 9-pint AF, 3.7 FPS, continous shooting, Canon’s first entry model with 63-zone metering, live view shooting in all shooting modes, including full auto mode, enhanced (full HD EOS movie recording and playback function (Full HD: 30/25/24 FPS, HD/SD: 60/50 FPS), EOS movie crop function, wide (3:2) 3.0-inch LCD monitor with (1.04 million dots), lens peripheral illumination correction, compatible with next generation SD and SDXC, EOS integrated cleaning system. I’m no pro with cameras, especially DSLR, but with these a lot of specs, I must that this is great. :-)

How I really wish that Santa hears me out, I badly needed a camera. Hehehe.

Canon also presented their new line of printers that I finds so styling and quite affordable. 


PIXMA iP2770


The Canon PIXMA printers MP258, MX347 and iP2770 will be available in stores starting March 2010.

And as part of the tradition, Cannon raffled off some prices to their media friends, including bloggers like us, and here are the winners:


And here are my fellow bloggers who also bagged some prizes.

Now, I'm in love with Canon.
Canon really delighted me.
And hopefully, soon, I’ll have my first Canon camera.

Thank, Canon!

Feel free to leave your name, url and email address in the comment box
so I can add it to the guest list that I will send to the The Bar peeps.


And see you soon!

Uncle Cheffy in the House!

I’m so excited when I got an invite to attend a bloggers affair in Eastwood, and what excites me more was when they told us that we’re going to visit their new mall and have a dinner to one of the most visited and authentic classy Pinoy restaurant – Uncle Cheffy.

Located at the second floor, far end of the of the Eastwood Mall, this place was, believe it or not, was the most visited resto in the area. And that’s not something I have doubt because when I dined and experienced their brick-oven panizza, one word, PERFECTO!

Panizza is a pan style pizza with garnishes that will make your pizza eating more fun and exciting.

Okay, to start sharing to you guys this wonderful experience; we first had the mouth-watering Grilled Prawns and Pomelo Salad.

Grilled Prawns and Pomelo Salad – Php295.00/Php495.00

The crispy veggies and the grilled prawns were tossed perfectly to its dressing making it the best salad ever!

Then, we were also presented with Uncle Cheffy Salad.

Uncle Cheffy Salad – Php230.00/Php495.00

What I love about this next salad was the crispy pork belly, it adds a little crunchiness to the dish making this whole piece really yummy.

For our main course, first, we had this special rice.

Special Rice – Php95.00
This special rice was similar to Kuse’s  Dulong Rice. It has fried dulong fishes in it adding a little crunch and saltiness to this delicious rice dish.

We also had a pasta dish that night, the Alejandro Spaghetti.

Spaghetti Alejandro - Php350.00

This is a Spanish inspires pasta that’s a little sweet and kinda cheesy. Kids will love this one because it wasn’t that sour and the ingredients were kinda like your favourite spaghetti pasta from your favourite fast-food restaurant.

And the following foodies you are about to see are the best dishes from Uncle Cheffy that will surely crave you for more.

Memphis Barbeque U.S Beef Rib Finger – Php595.00

This dish is good for four to five persons, and with its price, I found it really affordable considering the finger-licking taste of this dish. I highly recommend that you try this one.

Garlic Studded Pork Belly Lechon – Php95.00 per 100 grams

This dish was quite similar to our traditional Lechon Kawali. The only difference, I think, was this dish; especially the pork skin remained crunchy even after exposed to the air for more than an hour. The nice combination of sweet potato balls and the sauce compliments to taste of this all-time favourite dish.

Thai Styled Fried Pla Pla – Php295.00

This next dish was simply amazing for me. I love eating fish, and this one was really good. The yummy tender fish meat was flavoured and glamoured really well with its Thai style of cooking.

Oh, as I said we had a wonderful dinner that night, and the dinner didn’t stop here. Here are the dishes that made Uncle Cheffy really popular and lover.

Presenting the Panizza!

All Meat Barbequed Panizza – Php450.00

East Meets West Panizza – Php495.00

Seafood Lover’s Panizza – Php425.00

Uncle Cheffy Favourites Panizza – Php395.00

And my verdict – DELICIOUS AND FUN!
Though, I believe that this is not an original dish, I still enjoyed eating them. You can eat it without garnishes or enjoy it more with a sprinkle of every garnish. It’s like playing “Bahay-Bahayan” and “Luto-Lutuan”. Wee! My most favourite was the All Meat barbequed Panizza because the sweet taste of the meat blended really well with the fresh garnishes.

After savouring all of these wonderful dishes for main course, I let it settle down in my stomach with the help of Ripe Mango Shake.

Ripe Mango Shake – Php110.00

Then, we’re ready for dessert! Lols.

For our dessert, since we are all full, we just ordered these dishes:

Chocolate Roulade – Php135.00

It was like eating a fruit salad which was injected to this chocolate roll cake. It’s really tasty and sweet.

Chocolate Parfait – Php95.00

It was a delicious chocolate parfait wrapped in very tasty pandan crepe. I really love how the crepe tasted, the pandan flavour was blended nicely to the pancake ingredients. And to me, this was presented beautifully.

Sweet Potato Crème Brulee – Php95.00

This one was also delicious, but I find the sweet potato kinda bland, I dunno, maybe because I’ve had a lot, but the crème brulee part was perfectly presented and delectable. maybe the sweet potato was intentionally made it taste like that to balanced the whole flavor of this dish.

Panacotta with Ube Vichyssoise – Php110.00

I can have this all day. The panacotta was really delicious. I love the sweet and sour blend of the cream, milk and sugar on this one. I really, really, liked it. The ube vichyssoise made the panacotta more flavourful making the best dessert for me that night.

Oh, this has been a night I wouldn’t forget. This whole dining experience was two thumbs up for me. From the location of the Uncle Cheffy, to the interior of the restaurants, to the staff and how they served us, to the wonderful and fun dishes presented to us.

Now, I must say that I’m a fan of Uncle Cheffy. I love you, Uncle Cheffy!
