The Original Trailer for "The Exorcist" is Way Freaky!

Hello ghouls and ghoulettes!

I was randomly surfing online when I stumbled upon the original theatrical trailer for the movie The Exorcist. According to online info, this trailer was banned by several theaters for being too scary.

Your Blogger Image Looks Weird? Google+ Auto-Enhance Might be the Culprit

When I was uploading an image for my last post, I realized that the resulting picture looked different than the one I uploaded. The resulting image looked sharper and with higher contrast.

Upon researching online, I found out that other people had had similar issues and some folks had seen more drastic differences. The culprit? Google+ Auto Enhance.

Milk Rebond, Detox Treatment, Shine Wax, and Hair Color at Orange Blush Salon

Last July, I redeemed my voucher for a hair rebond at Orange Blush Salon in Mother Ignacia St., Quezon City. The salon is located within Mother Ignacia Place, right across the ELJ Building of ABS-CBN.

When I texted Orange Blush to set an appointment, the staff replied courteously and within two minutes. I was pleased with the instant response and expected good service on my visit the following day.

Highly Disappointing Ramen at Tokyo Ramen King

We were at Lucky Chinatown Mall last night, checking out the weekend street food market. Bf the ramen lover was tempted to try the piping hot ramen being sold by Tokyo Ramen King. After placing his order, we had to wait a long while. I urged bf to go back to the stall just to check if Tokyo Ramen King forgot about our order. They didn't. I'm not really sure why it took so long, because the staff did not look busy preparing other orders. The waiting time was even longer than in restaurants, but we were eating food from other stalls so we did not feel impatient.

When the ramen finally arrived, bf stood up to buy from another vendor. I sipped the ramen's broth while he was gone. I thought the soup tasted horrible but I did not want to influence bf's satisfaction so I did not say anything. When he was halfway through the ramen, I asked him what he thought of it. He told me that he did not like it -- he was just eating it because it was hot and because he paid P150 for it.

The man escapes execution to become a gladiator in the House of Batiatus and is given the name Spartacus. There, he meets other gladiators, including the doctore Oenomaus, Agron and his brother, the shrewd Ashur, and the champion Crixus who is in love with Naevia, the trusted slave of Batiatus' wife.
