IMAX @ SM Lanang is believing

Image
I was one of the official DavaoBloggers invited to attend the Blessing and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony of SM Cinema Lanang and experience how fun it is to watch IMAX Lanang. Upon entering the theatre, I received a set of popcorn and a choice of softdrink or orange juice and also my pair of 3D eyeglasses. The theater can cater 466 seats and the screen are so large it extends beyond your peripheral vision, making me feel at the center of the action. They are several times larger compared to the screens in conventional theaters. 

Some IMAX screens, like the one at IMAX Mall of Asia, stands eight stories high-allowing it to display larger that life 2D and 3D images. On top of the very large image-display, the images are also of crystal-clear quality.

3D Glasses 3d glasses are wide and big enough for my face. I keep on adjusting the glasses because it keeps on sliding on my nose.

Social Media & the internet as tools for boosting Tourism

Image
Word of mouth is considered the oldest yet most effective form of marketing mix. In fact, Social media is boosting word of mouth to the next level, the biggest shift of the century. It could make or break a budding tourism industry because people rely more on recommendations from friends talking and blogging about their recent escapades and vacations by sharing through Facebook and Twitter, checking in Foursquare to know more of tips and information of must see places to visit and food to taste, upload funny videos to Youtube of individual experiences, sharing memorable photos, and events through Instagram, and reading personal reviews, blogs and  get comments and replies at blog sites.
