Six Important Must-haves for Every Batman and Superman Babies.

7:26 AM 0 Comments A+ a-

I am pretty sure that you batman and superman babies out there are raring to head down to the nearest cinema on Black Saturday for the showing of  Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

The superhero movie directed by Zack Snyder, an American filmmaker known for starting the DC Extended Universe film series, will be the first ever live-action film to feature both DC Comic characters, Batman and Superman. The film is a follow up to Superman: Man of Steel and inspired by the Batman limited series The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller.

No wonder fans have been going wild, with advanced ticket sales worldwide slowly pacing ahead Marvel superhero box office hits, Deadpool and Avengers. In anticipation of the release, and in true DC Comic fan spirit, we’ll let you in on six important things every Batman and Superman fan should buy online.

1.  Superhero Graphic Novels (takatack.ph)


If you’re going to do be a fan, you cannot possibly live without owning at least a couple of essential superhero graphic novels.

For Superman fans, your must read is Superman Earth One, which includes that iconic moment when Clark finally becomes Superman. Batman: Earth One is the counterpart for Batman fans, but the crossroads for these two heroes is really The Dark Knight Returns. Most people have a misconception that it’s just about Batman, but no other comic book comes close to actually defining the character of Superman than Frank Miller’s holy grail. You’ll have to buy it and read it to find out why. You can order a copy from the Takatack store of Galleon PH  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/TakatackBVSPR" here. 


2.   Supermovies

 As a Batman or Superman fan, having watched any previous films about the two characters is pretty much a given. Although if you’re just beginning to get into the fandom, and you can’t read the graphic novels, at least watch the live adaptations of the two characters so you can fully appreciate why the battle of Batman V Superman makes a compelling story.

You want to fully understand and choose, whose explicit code of morality is superior? Who is more admirable? Which one makes a better model in defining today’s culture and society? Who is more self-sacrificing? The best way to get your fix is to  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/NetflixBVSPR" get a subscription on Netflix and supermarathon all the Batman and Superman films there.

3.    Super Kitchenwear

Getting super abs is as easy as putting on an apron. This one is for all the cooks out there who want to feel like heroes in their own kitchen, saving the hungry, one dish at a time.  These Batman and Superman gems are available on  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/1o0YNbm" Takatack.ph.





4.  The Superhero Look (zalora.ph + sephora.ph) 

There is no other more iconic accessory for Superman than his horn-rimmed glasses which were used to hide his alien identity, projecting instead the intelligent and mild-mannered Clark Kent. These are readily available at  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/1UIUfDx" ZALORA.

 On the other hand, while most men can’t keep up with billionaire Mr. Wayne’s bespoke Armani suits, most guys can look the part by just getting their hair done well. We don’t have a photo of Ben Affleck sporting the Bruce Wayne look yet because of the limited footage, hence Christian Bale, but over the years in film or comics, Bruce Wayne has always had his hair on point. Pomade or wax is key, and guys will want something with good hold to hold their hair’s shape, but not rock hard so that they can’t run their fingers through their hair. Sephora has a good variety of styling products which you can check out  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/SPHRBVSPR" here.


5.   Supershirts

So who is the “better” superhero? Let's wear our VOTE! It’s likely many people will show up at the cinemas wearing some sign of support for their favorite superhero. Wear  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/AMZNBVSPR" a classic Batman or Superman shirt officially licensed by DC Comics and join the many others showing their support for #TeamBatman or #TeamSuperman



6.   A Superadvanced ticket to the showing

Everyone knows how big this movie is going to be, and how hard it’s going to be to score tickets. The lines will be endless, and the wait will be painful if you ever get to the front desk after hours only to be told there aren’t any seats available for the day.

Reserve your movie tickets online instead.
 HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/1UeW6S1" SM Cinemas and  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/RBCBVSPR" Robinson’s Movieworld are two online cinema platforms that let you buy your tickets and choose your seats online.

Buying these things online may require you to have a credit card. If you don’t have one, the best way to go about is to pay with PayMaya instead. PayMaya is a free online payment app on  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/GooglePlayBVSPR" Google Play Store and  HYPERLINK "http://bit.ly/AppStoreBVSPR" App Store that lets you buy online without a credit card.

Care for Kare-kare? Make it Native Chicken Karekare from FONTI CAFE!

8:40 PM 0 Comments A+ a-




Kare-Kare is always on my list of  favorite dishes. I love it with its thick peanutty-sauce and al dente cuts of pechay, puso ng saging and string beans. Very recently, my good friend Cathy, introduced us to Fonti Cafe's Native Chicken Kare-kare. Yup, its chicken we're having the kare-kare with! We were assured a good tasting one and they definitely did not fail to deliver as promised!

Fonti Cafe's Kare-kare is made the old -fashioned way with pieces of native chicken cut-ups sauteed in corn oil, red onion, garlic and tanglad (lemongrass) then patiently boiled to tenderness. What makes their kare-kare more special is that they use only the finest ingredients and they make its thick peanut sauce from scratch! Nothing instant, really! Their signature golden-yellow peanut sauce is made from achuete seeds, toasted brown rice and coconut milk for that added creaminess, perfected by  their homestyle peanut butter. The sauce alone will make you want to order for an extra rice or lick your plate clean!

Fonti Cafe serves organic and halal dishes which makes this place a good choice for our Muslim brothers and non-pork eating friends. Aside from their savory kare-kare, Fonti's also serves other Native Chicken dishes which are equally sumptuous! You have to try their Arroz Caldo! It's probably the best tasting "chicken-and-rice-on-a-ginger-flavored broth" dish in Gensan!

Fonti Cafe also takes pride in serving beverages from freshly squeezed dalandan and other fruits in season. You have to try their thirst-quenching Dalandan-Mint Juice. It's perfect for the weather condition in hot GenSUN! Have you heard of UBE Shake? It's a must -try. And have I told you I've found a new love here? Go order a cup of their hot Matcha Green Tea with Dalandan and Honey and tell me how it tastes.

Fonti Cafe is located at the East Asia Royale Arcade 1 along the National Highway, General Santos City. It's a good place to get together with friends for a good chat, away from the usual  mall raucous, or bury yourself in a book over a cup of good coffee and tasty pastries.
