Experience the magazine in an entirely new way as Preview magazine introduces the newest technical innovation in its December issue—Augmented Reality.Bloggers were invited for a special meeting with editors to introduce this new innovation. It was a pity that I wasn't able to go but my friends were there and I had a proxy. Haha.
“Augmented reality is the technology or process of combining a real-world scene with computer imagery. This often requires a camera, a screen, and a trigger that starts the AR experience,” says Edna Belleza, senior vice president and chief information officer of GMA New Media, Inc., the company that developed the Augmented Reality technology for Preview Magazine.
The print marker found on the lower left side of the front cover is your key to seeing Survivor Philippines castaway Solenn Heussaff, dressed in Tory Burch’s 2011 Resort Collection, as she talks and walks her way around a virtual computer-generated world.
To experience this Augmented Reality technology, log on to www.stylebible.ph/preview_augmented_reality, and select the link that turns on the webcam. Tilt the magazine in different directions and see Solenn jetset across four different and fabulous places.
Also starting this December, you can share your comments and reactions about the pages of this month’s Preview magazine through your mobile phone. Preview will also be available via Zinio starting January 2011. With this technology, you can have your copy of Preview in your desktops, laptops, phones or tablets, allowing you to read the magazine anytime and anywhere using your gadgets.
The concept behind the store is to instill in the consumer a deeper appreciation of the nuances in choosing the right fragrance that suits them best.
Art of Scent takes its inspiration from the industry-standard fragrance wheel composed of 4 major sections: fresh, woody, floral, oriental. As such, the store itself has 4 sections displaying fragrance brands based on which fragrance family it belongs to. The brands and references in these 4 sections will be rotated on a monthly basis in order to refresh the fragrance consumer’s visual and olfactory palettes.
Along with this, the store also has a main section for the top 10 selling men’s and top 10 selling women’s fragrance references based on national sales. This section serves as the store’s anchor, so called because this section will be a permanent fixture of the store.
The Art of Scent flagship store is located in the ground floor of Resorts World in Newport City, Philippines. For more details, you may contact the store through phone number 8467447 or Email them at email@example.com.
Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In from KBS 2TV’s “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” have been nominated for the ‘Best Couple Award’ at the 2010 KBS Drama Awards.The two played the roles of ‘Yeorim’ and ‘Geol Oh’, which received massive support from fans of the drama as the representative ‘male couple.’ One scene in particular even created a ‘gay scandal’ between the two. Yeorim, who observed Geol Oh putting his life on the line in order to find the person who wrote the fake handbill, tearfully made the following outburst:”What does that make me, the person by your side? Fine, live as you want and get out of my sight.”Although both actors and producers clarified the scene to be an expression of their deep friendship, it seems as if viewers took it differently, landing the two a nomination for the awards show.A representative of KBS’s variety team revealed, “Due to the aggressive recommendations and support the press corps have shown, we were able to confidently put the ‘Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In’ couple as nominations for the ‘Best Couple Award’. We predict that they will receive just as many user votes as the other hetero couples in the viewers votes.”

The year is about to end and I am thankful for everything. So many things happened and I’m just overwhelmed with it all. Haha. Make sure you get the January issue of Monday magazine next year! So happy.
Anyway, I finally got that Japanjapan shirt from Mental.
For some reason I’m enjoying Hey Say Jump! so much. I have this unhealthy obsession with Chinen. I’ll stop here nalang before I type something totally inappropriate.
