4DX Theatre at Bonifacio High Street Central Square

Yesterday, our new company treated all the employees to movie and watched Jurassic World at Bonifacio High Street Central Square.

4DX allows a motion picture presentation to be augmented with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights, and scents along with the standard video and audio. As such, theaters must be specially designed for and equipped with 4DX technology.

Ayalaland claims that its the Philippines' first 4DX Theatre that opens at Bonifacio High Street Central Square. But as far as I know, Enchanted Kingdom Rialto in Laguna offers 4DX Theater earlier than BGC Central Square.

Anyway, I already watched this movie last week so I already know the story.

Jurassic World Story
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitors' interest, which backfires horribly.

Even though I already watched the movie, it was still a fun experience with my colleagues.

Tacsiyapo release your anger!

Are you angry? Hurt? Or just want to release your anger?

Then the Tacsiyapo wall of Isdaan located in Tarlac Philippines is the perfect place to release all that anger! We went there again on our way to Baguio to eat breakfast before we head out to our up north road trip. I first visited Tacsiyapo at Isdaan Restaurant way back 2008. Now other parts of the restaurant have also been developed like the angry birds and this elephant.

“Tacsiyapo” means is a local cuss word which means “P_tang Ina” in Tagalog and “Son of a B_tch” in English. Tacsiapo is a special area in Isdaan Restaurant where you can buy mug, plates and other things like radio and TV and trow it to Tacsiyapo Wall. The wall was specially built for individuals who want to release their anger by throwing those things to the wall.

Instead of actually uttering a vulgar word at your enemy, you can just throw any ceramic item at the wall and use your imagination that you are smashing those items to your enemy! The items that you can throw on the wall are NOT free. Price range of the items starts at around 15 Pesos for a mug or a saucer, 18 Pesos for a bowl, 35 pesos for a big plate, 150 pesos for a pitcher, and the most expensive is the T.V. which costs around 2 thousand pesos!

The Tacsiyapo wall is well labeled with people’s description such as well-hated “mother/father in Law”, “ex-wife/husband”, “ex-girlfriend/boyfriend”, “alcohol, and other bad habits”, “casino”, “high-blood, arthritis”, “creditor/debtor”, “magnanakaw (thief)” and even your annoying officemates or your boss and many more. There’s even a special wall for the Isdaan restaurant employees to release their stress from annoying customers and from the looks of the wall it seems that they haven’t used it at all.

If you are really carrying that much anger inside you then you may even get tempted to buy the Television to smash it on the wall. Talking about anger management!
