Watching Transformers 3D: Dark of the Moon

Last week premiers the third installation of the Transformers 3D: Dark of the Moon. I was wondering how the story would go now that Megan Fox was removed from the cast. It was almost 5PM and the line to the ticket booth is really long. When we got to the booth all the ticket for the 6PM screening was sold out so we had no choice but to get the late screening which only had a couple of seats available. The screening starts at 10:30PM so we had a lot of time to move around the mall and did some window shopping. My excitement to watch the movie in a big 3D screen boiled down.

It was almost a 5 hour wait and we were getting tired, I can’t even feel my feet. We decided to go home and had our dinner. We bought some ice cream but we never had a chance to savor it because we had to go back to the movie house. As usual, the line was really long and we were among the last people in the line. Finding our seats was no trouble, good thing the movie house have ushers to help us find it.

So here’s the summary of what I’ve seen. Well if there’s something I missed, I might have fallen asleep.

* * * * * *

The film opened with the war, in 1961, and "the Ark", a Cybertronian spacecraft carrying a device competent of ending the war between the Autobots and Decepticons, hurtled on the far side of the moon. Noticed by NASA from Earth, the president John F. Kennedy approved to send Apollo 11 to search it. And everything was kept in oblivion.

At the present day, Autobots worked hand in hand with the US military forces to prevent any divergence around the world. At a mission to Chernobyl, Optimus Prime found a fuel cell from the Ark. They were then attacked by Shockwave who successfully escaped. After they learned about the 1961 space mission, the Autobots travelled to the moon and explored the Ark. To their surprise they discover Sentinel Prime comatose, a former Autobot leader with his creation- The Pillars which can create a Space Bridge between two points and teleport. They went back to Earth and with the use of the Matrix of Leadership, Optimus revived Sentinel Prime.

On the other hand, Sam Witwicky is ill-fated to find a job and don’t even have the consent to see the Autobots. But he has a new girlfriend Carly Spencer which has a close relationship with her boss Dylan Gould. After he was offered a job, Sam was given information by a co-worker named Jerry Wang about the Ark and was later assassinated by Laserbeak, the condor-like Decepticon. Sam contacted Seymour Simmons and they found out that Megatron and the other Decepticons were murdering people that are connected to the American and Russian space missions to the Ark. To find out more about this movement, they both locate two Russian cosmonauts who reveal satellite photos of hundreds of Pillars on the moon. Sam apprehended that the Decipticons searched the Ark before the Autobots and purposely left Sentinel and five Pillars to entice the Autobots in a catch. The Autobots rush to return Sentinel to their base for safety but he deceived them and kills Ironhide, he then confesses that he made a deal with the Decepticons to ensure the survival of the Cybertronians.

Sentinel escaped and used the Pillars to convey hundreds of Decepticons from the moon to Earth and Sam’s girlfriend, Carly was captured by Gould who was serving Decepticons all along. To protect Earth, the Autobots were exiled as stipulated by the Decepticons. As their ship leaves, Starscream blow the ship and thought he killed the Autobots in it. Megatron and Sentinel take hold of Chicago and the Pillars were allocated around the world. Gould told Carly that the Decepticon will transport Cybertron to the Milky Way and use the resources and enslave humans to reconstruct their world. Sam accompanied with Robert Epps went to Chicago to save Carly and was almost killed by Decepticon forces when the Autobots interfered.

The Autobots and US forces was able to rescue Carly and annihilate Soundwave, Barricade, Shockwave and Starscream. Optimus discharge the Control Pillar and immobilize the Space Bridge. Sam meets head-on Gould who reactivates the Control Pillar, and was later knocked out and got electrocuted. Ratchet with Bumblebee destroyed the Control Pillar and immobilized the Bridge completely. Optimus and Sentinel were in a middle of a fight when Carly persuaded Megatron that he will be replaced by Sentinel as the leader of the Decepticons. Sentinel was about to kill Optimus when Megatron appeared and debilitate him. Optimus then assaulted Megatron and killed him. Sentinel begged for his life but Optimus killed him still. The Decepticons were finally defeated, the Autobots understands that Cybertron is gone forever and Sam is together with Carly.

The movie was fine, not the whole production I was expecting. What I noticed with “Carly” was at the end she still looked neat. She went to falling buildings, some smoking cars and her face and clothes looked so clean. Geez, she was not that convincing.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

No More Online Job For Me

Claiming my independence was really tough. Well, I’m pretty sure a lot of you would agree, it’s like starting to learn to crawl. Though I was able to get a fine job, it seems like the pay was not satisfying my basic needs. I might not have tightened my belt pretty well to make both ends meet, and I need to find a way out from this dilemma real fast.

Online jobs is selling like pan cakes and the pay was really good. Enticing for someone like me who’s stuck in a bad financial system. I started browsing for an opening at and was lucky to find an employer.

It really went out well and the pay was really good. To start off I was earning about $175 on the first month to complete 50 blog comments per day and submit a report in an Excel document. On the second month, my employer was paying me $200 with an additional task to complete email confirmation. The third month was fabulous, aside from the monthly pay, I was given an extra. At the same time, I’m juggling this with my job as a Mototrbo radio specialist. It was really fun and time management was a must.

It was short lived though, after enjoying the extra income for three months, my online job employer decided to stop the project for some time. I was thinking I’m back to my dilemma but I was wrong. Things are a lot better now and I was able to adjust to the kind of life I have now. I guess I’ve mastered the “crawling” part and I’m ready to start a new lesson.

District 9 part 2?!

Hold your horses, there’s no part 2 yet. I was just finish watching District 9 with my girlfriend and I can’t get over few thoughts.

First, the alien who escaped and promised to come back to Earth after 3 year, would that mean the second part of the movie is due on 2013? “I was just wondering…”

Second, the pickup truck used by the MNU looks robust and pretty tough. It’s like a combination of the Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara. I wish I can have one. “What? I was just wishing…”

Third, how in the world did the “Prawns” have such advancement in technology with the way they live? And they should be more decent and prim with the knowledge and tech they have not scavengers. “Well, I just don’t get it…”

Can’t wait what will happen next.

The Underpaid Licensed Electronics Engineer

I just got my pay check but looking at the figures makes me wonder if I’ll be happy or sad. No matter what, it’s still a blessing. It’s the fruit of my own blood and sweat.

Working as a Cadet Engineer, I handle both IP CCTV’s and the MotoTrbo radio support specialist. Though the pay is just in range for the minimum bracket, it’s a good experience if I really want to go abroad for a greener pasture. But for now, it’s not my priority yet. I’m aiming to become a millionaire at the age of 35 by just staying here in the country. And I know this is quite ambitious of me, but it’s possible if you really come to think of it. This may not be expected by saving alone, as what my mentor said, “You need to invest".

Investing is the only possible way to climb the ladder of success and be part of Forbes list. That’s what I’m thinking right now and that means saving at least 25000php to be able to trade in the Philippine Stock Exchange(PSE). Another thing, I'm in trouble picking the right stock since I'm no analyst. I just hope 20 years from now my favorite pick will grew not just by 100% but 2000%.

Well, so much of my salary and long term goals in life. I just hope my boss would see and appreciate all my work and increase the pay. I almost forgot today is payday so it’s “pamper-myself-day”. I need to take a break, eat well and get some rest.

Anyways, I gained weight for the last 3 months and this is awful news for me. Since I’ve been back with the blogging business please continue to read my posts. Thank you!

How far can the iPhone get you

I saw this datagram awhile ago which explains how you can get attractive in buying an iPhone

I know the iPhone cost you more money to buy one. In the Philippines its around 45-50k for a brand new iPhone. In any case, maybe its time some us reconsidered on choosing an iPhone over a Nokia cellphone.Yes i said that Nokia is popular here in the Philippines. Mine is just a low profile phone its cherry mobile d15 which has 2 sim cards in one phone.

ntldr missing

Here's How: 1. Enter Windows XP Recovery Console.
2. When you reach the command prompt , type the following two commands, pressing Enter after each one:

copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\

copy d:\i386\ c:\

In the command listed above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\ represents the root folder of the partition that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.

3.If you're prompted to overwrite either of the two files, press Y.
4.Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.

Assuming that missing or corrupt versions of the NTLDR and/or files were your only issues, Windows XP should now start normally.

Sony - Handycam DVD Camcorder Model: DCR-DVD610

A digital camera recorder that captures realistic videos and images that automatically stores in your dvd disc

This camera works really great for capturing all kinds of memories. The software is relatively easy to use, and the videos are very clear and good in quality. Optical Zoom is at 40x, which is most important, since digital zoom tends to distort the picture some. For most of us, 40x is plenty. This camera is easy to use and easy to make the movies straight-to-DVD. Just record, finish the disc, and pop it in your DVD player.
It's tuff and the video quality is great though the regular camera is only 1.3 MP. I highly recommend.

Logitech - QuickCam

Looking for a good web cam,here you go. Thats about all it is, basic.

Pros: Excellent picture and good sounding audio
Cons: Gets blurry when on Yahoo Messenger when you move around too fast, but i think it's the software on yahoo which lags a bit.

The privacy shutter is a nice feature and it is easy to set up and use. Bad points would be that the wrong software comes with it so you have to go to Logitech's site to get cam programs. You would be much happier for this camera for the money. It is a great camera for the price at only $54.00. The camera itself is pretty much plug and play. Good news to mac users because this webcam works well with iMac computers.If you are looking for a great web cam with nice features and at a good price , I highly recommend this one.

I prefer it doesnt much need for upgrading because i think it'll last for about a couple of years.
