One of the most anticipated superhero films is finally upon us! Doctor Strange!
From the time Marvel made the official announcement that they would be making a Doctor Strange movie and that Benedict Cumberbatch would be cast as the Sorcerer Supreme, I eagerly waited for this day to come. During the long wait, month after month I made do with whatever behind-the-scene photos and teasers I would chance upon and find on the internet.
I had the awesome opportunity to attend the advanced screening of Doctor Strange just a couple of days ago at the IMAX Theatre at SM Mall of Asia. My joy and excitement couldn’t be contained as I counted down the days.
I’ve always been a comic geek. I grew up collecting comic books, reading them over and over again and escaping into my own fantasy. This is probably the reason why I’m part of the demographic that’s sincerely hoping for a close-to-faithful retelling of Doctor Strange’s origin story. Thankfully, Marvel did not disappoint.
Never underestimate the wonderful experience a perfect pairing of wine and food can make. The way each wine selection heightens the flavor of its partnered fare is just a joy to one’s senses.
I was recently treated to an unforgettable dining experience a couple of weeks ago when I attended a Dourthe Bordeaux wine pairing dinner at Atelier Vivanda in BGC.
Well, it’s that time of the year again when you can feel that undeniable excitement in the air.
No, I’m not talking about Christmas which also happens to be just ’round the corner. I’m talking about that most anticipated time of the year when the newest model of the best phone (in my opinion) on the planet makes its way over to our side of the planet.
I’m talking about the Apple iPhone 7.
