Cars and Manny Pacquiao
I usually politely decline whenever PR companies and brand managers invite me to events about products unrelated to Project Vanity's niche. But last week, I made an exception for two events hosted by PLDT MyDSL! You see, Marco is crazy and I mean crazy about cars right now. Most of his free time is spent tinkering with his race car, watching car films, and reading car websites. It's quite irritating (to put it mildly).
In his favorite talyer (auto garage) in Fairview. Fairview! The things I do for love.
He watched the last four films of The Fast and the Furious franchise because, while he thought the story sucked, the fast cars alone are enough to make up for it. So when PLDT myDSL invited me to the exclusive movie premier of Fast Five last week, I knew he'd love to come! I do like seeing him happy.
Fast Five follows Brian O'Conner (Walker), Dom Toretto (Diesel) and Mia Toretto (Brewster) as they plan a heist to steal $100 million from corrupt businessman Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) while being pursued for arrest by U.S. DSS agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson).
Fast Five was mindless yet fun entertainment. It stars an ensemble cast who delivered incredibly corny one-liners with a straight face! Haha. But I liked it nonetheless. Not all movies need to be all deep and intellectual, you know.
I enjoyed the creative car chases, the light moments between the cast (which shows that they're not taking themselves too seriously), and the sizzling atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro.
Of course, Marco was eyeballing all the cars! Overall, it was a nice date over cheese popcorn and hot dogs in MOA.
Aside from cars, Marco's other great love is Manny Pacquiao. I sent him to myDSL's live streaming event last Sunday so he can get first dibs on the fight. He tried testing the PLDT Watchpad app, but unfortunately, it doesn't work for MacBooks. :( Otherwise, we'd definitely use it at home since we don't have a TV. A lot of people may complain about PLDT DSL, but we have always found it fast and reliable in our area. It's what I use to blog everyday.
As you already know, Pacquiao won! Whoop! Thanks to PLDT myDSL for inviting us. :D
Soo...what are the things your other half loves that you just don't get but support anyway?
