7th High Bonifacio Global City Taguig


| Posted in , , , , , , , | Posted on 12/19/2010 09:19:00 AM

My friend bugged me to accompany him yesterday to a new place somewhere in The Fort area. I was hesitant at first since it was a Saturday night and I know how heavy the traffic would be along EDSA, but still decided to go. He told me that he was included in a guest list of 7th High, a new club in B3, Quadrant 4, Bonifacio Global City and that there will be an open bar from 10PM to 12 midnight.

New Year, new kicks. I’m looking forward for the January Release of Nike SB. The most loved Stefan Janoski in Obsidian/White Metro Grey will be a definite must cop for me. God! I love the gum outsole.

Wondering how to make that amazing look on other Facebook users’ profile? Here’s a tutorial on how to play around and give your Profile Page a new look.

What are the Numbers in Facebook Status About?


| Posted in , , , | Posted on 12/12/2010 08:40:00 AM

After the change your profile picture into a cartoon went viral a week ago, there’s a new Facebook Status game that is gaining popularity. So, you’re probably wondering what’s up with the numbers on the Facebook status all about, it’s explained in The Number Game Facebook page  “Facebook users can ask their friends what they think about them by supplying them with a number. The friend then gives the answer, and attaches the number to their answer for identification purposes." 
What do you think about these Facebook trends? Do you participate in them?

Dear Santa,

I’ve been good all year long and Christmas is near once again. I know it’s been a long time since the last time I ask for a gift and I’m a bit of a grown up now, but I really want this one bad. You always know that I’m a big fan of Nokia phones, specially their high end units. From analog phones to the birth of SMS enabled phones up to the touch screen, WiFi and GPS equipped units; it’s Nokia that I always trust. So, for this Christmas, I wish to have a Nokia C7.

Santa, you’re probably thinking that I don’t need a Nokia C7 since I still have my year old dependable Nokia N97. But please keep in mind that the Nokia C7 is more elegant and slimmer compared to the bulgy and heavier N97. The Symbian^3 Operating System will be a perfect new experience for me. The capacitive touch screen will be an upgrade to the resistive touch screen my unit has. And of course, the 8MP camera (with face detection) is perfect to capture happy and memorable moments in my life. 

Below are the photos taken with my 5 Megapixel Nokia N97. I guess an additional 3 Megapixel will be better.

More pictures in this link.

The Nokia C7 will be a perfect gift for me since there are a lot of things I can do with it. The integrated GPS and Ovi Maps still amazed me (read my blog on How to use Ovi Maps in the Philippines). The FM transmitter is great for sharing my favourite MP3s on any FM radio. WiFi connection for browsing and a superb browser with Flash support is something I love to have with me when I need to check my emails, networking sites and blog when I’m on the go. I could go on and on for more use of the powerful Nokia C7, and if ever I can’t think of one anymore, I’ll just look for a new game or application in the Ovi Store.

Please Santa, listen to my wish. You’ll make me happier with a Nokia C7 this Christmas. I promise not to be naughty even until the next year.:)

Justin Bieber Concert in Manila (Mall of Asia)


| Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 12/08/2010 10:22:00 AM

Again, I am not a fan of Justin Bieber. In fact, a get annoyed by that kid’s looks and voice. But good news for JB’s fans, he will be having a concert on May 10, 2011 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. Smart is producing the concert and they are the one who announced the big news.

It’s going to be a big Bieber Fever next year... Baby, baby, baby oh! Surprisingly, I found myself singing to the tune of Justin’s song from time to time.  That’s how powerful JB is, coz no matter how you dislike the kid, your subconscious pick up the tune and lyrics of his songs.

Hotline number to report an abusive Taxi Driver


| Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 12/06/2010 08:04:00 AM

Riding a taxi cab can be a nightmare here in Metro Manila. Almost everyone who rides a cab have some story to tell about abusive drivers. Choosing passengers/destination, not using the meter and asking more than the right fare are just some of the examples. Other situations are even worse. I was also a victim of some of their modus operandi. The only thing I did was list the plate numbers but never get to complain about it at the LTFRB.

Good thing is that the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) activated a hotline and text number to receive complaints from commuters. Passengers can either call 7890 or text 0918-8848484. This is a good timing since the Holiday season is near.

How to Activate the New Facebook Profile Page Design


| Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 12/05/2010 04:32:00 PM

The number 1 social networking site got a new look. Users can now activate and experience the new profile page starting today. The gradual update will be early next year but users can opt to activate it today. 

Basic information will appear below your name making it easier for friends to pinpoint where you live, your birthday, school you graduate from etc. Under that is an array of pictures you are tag to. Photo page appears a little different also, you can view all your albums in a single page. For more information and to activate the new Facebook Profile page, go to this link.

What do you think of the new FB Profile look? Will you activate it now or just wait for the site to change for everyone?

Free SMS Text Messaging Using Facebook (uLink)


| Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 12/03/2010 02:27:00 AM

Filipinos love sending tons of text messages every day. And what Filipinos love more? Sending their SMS free of charge! There’s a new way of sending message to all your friends and love ones without busting your mobile phone network provider. And the fun part of it is you can enjoy the service without installing anything on your computer, you just need your Facebook account and you’re all set to go.

uLink is a Facebook application that allows you to send SMS text message to all networks in the Philippines. Whether it is Globe, Sun Cellular, Smart, TM, Talk and Text or Red Mobile, you can enjoy unlimited text messaging anytime, in any place of the Philippines. I have still to try the service if it can send to a roaming number overseas.

I know that it is no way to completely abandon your mobile phones, but it can help save a great amount of money. I recommend uLink to those who have unlimited Internet. The downside is SMS length is limited only to 130 characters. uLink is also ad supported, so don’t be surprised if you’re directed to a new web page after sending the SMS message. Visit uLink Facebook application or their website.

Why are people changing their Facebook Profile Picture to Cartoons?


| Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 12/01/2010 12:05:00 PM

Maybe you are wondering why people suddenly changed their primary profile image.  If you’re still clueless and want to know the answer, here’s my clue: it got something to do with childhood memories.

I just recently changed mine to Mighty Mouse, a Superman like mouse possessing super powers. First appeared in 1942 in a theatrical animated short titled The Mouse of Tomorrow. Not that I grew up around 1940’s or somewhere near that time line, I like Mighty Mouse because he’s what I grew up with in Philippine Television around early 90’s. My cartoon childhood memories are Bozo the Clown, Super Book, Flying House, Yogi Bear etc. Those are the days of not so complicated life.

Back to Facebook, I received a message that says “Change your Facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. There should be no human faces on Facebook but an invasion of memories to raise awareness for Violence Against Children”. So, the social networking site is being put into good use by promoting social awareness and preventing violence against children.   Change your Facebook primary photo now.

Nike Club 5KM Run Manila


| Posted in , , , , | Posted on 11/22/2010 08:16:00 PM

Nike Philippines will be organizing a running event for December 5 2010. Yes, that’s the same date with QCIM2. Well, the target participants for the Nike Club Run Manila are students, so it’ll be no problem for them to be getting some participants (registration for students is only 100 PhP). Sad to say, obviously there’s no singlet for this race.

Another run that is going to take place on December 5 2010 is the 1st Nurse’s Fun Run, a 3.5KM buddy system run. Although the prize money for this run is high and I’m a nurse, I registered for the 21K category of Quezon City International Marathon for some reasons.

Team Facebook or Team Google?


| Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 11/21/2010 03:56:00 PM

It’s apparent that Facebook is going all the way for total web domination. It is not settling for 2nd, so what the option is? Compete head to head with the number 1, Google. It is not a surprise that FB is removing Gmail in its 3rd party email providers. 

With the recent announcement of the new Facebook Messaging service and @facebook.com email address to be assigned to FB users still fresh, the social network giant is now suggesting to users to make it as its homepage. Doing so will boost a traffic and ranking of Facebook a great way. Notice that most Internet users don’t bother to change their home page (mine is actually still Google because it’s the default homepage for Firefox).

Do you guys think the social network king can overthrow the search engine king? Will you use the @facebook.com email ad when it’s made available? What is your current homepage?  Hit the comments section below.

My 15K Run Experience at Run United 2 (Unilab)


| Posted in , , , , | Posted on 11/21/2010 07:34:00 AM

I finished a 15K run this morning at the Run United 2 event. After 1 hour and 45 minutes, I managed to cross the finish line in one piece and free from injury (except for the bruise under my armpits due to excessive friction). I may not be as fast as the other competitive runners, but I enjoyed the whole race.

The event was great. No problems encountered and the water stations are sufficient. I appreciate the sponges of cold water since it really helped a lot in cooling down. The race started as scheduled and the post event amenities, freebies are awesome. One complaint though is our singlets are not yet delivered. But I guess no race is perfect. Never mind the singlet, the event itself is more important than that. I still like Run Rio as race event organizer. Although I and my running buddy don’t bother to line up for some freebies because of the long queue, we did gain something more important than those material things. We get free pointers from a good running coach. 

Coach PJ

I’m happy with my first 15K experience. I enjoyed being able to finish without worrying about cramps and side stitches. In fact, I feel like I could go on another 5 kilometers more. I guess, knowing one's limits and following the Galloway method helped a lot.

Facebook Email? Meh!


| Posted in , | Posted on 11/16/2010 07:58:00 AM


Why? There’s too much personal information attached to it. I will never use one on a resume or bank transactions, etc.  So, I’ll pass on an @facebook.com email ad.

Download and Install Swype for Nokia


| Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 11/15/2010 07:33:00 AM

Swype is now available for download via Ovi Store! But the final version is only available for Nokia N8. Other touch screen phones can also try this new way of typing by downloading and installing the Beta version via Nokia Beta Labs.

Devices that are currently supported are Nokia N8, N97, N97mini, 5800, 5230, Nokia X6 and C6-00. I installed it on my Nokia N97 by copying the file to my phone memory (the 32GB internal memory) and the installation was quick and easy. 

Swiper no swiping!

I still have to familiarize myself using Swype and maybe I’ll do a follow up review after. First impression is I have difficulty using my big fingers Swyping, so I used the stylus dongle for my phone. I think Swype is fun but nothing beats the old comfortable QWERTY for fast and accurate typing. I guess the saying “Once you go QWERTY, you never go back” defeats the “Why Swype when you can type”.

Google Maps Best Navigation Directions

2. Go to "Get Directions".
3. Type Taiwan as the start location.
4. Type China as the end location.
5. Read STEP 24 of the directions.

Watch The Walking Dead on Skycable

I watched the premiere of The Walking Dead and it was awesome. I always love zombie apocalypse movies. The series premiered on 4 cable channels, Channel V, Star World, Fox and FX. The first episode, “Days Gone By” showed officer Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma only to find a world overrun by Zombies. 

My First Half Marathon: QCIM 2010


| Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 11/05/2010 05:46:00 AM

I registered for 2 running events for November and December, 15K at the Unilab Run and 21K for the much anticipated Quezon City International Marathon.

I paid 600 PhP for the 21K since we registered late for the event. The race kits will be given on November 27-28th at UP Diliman Bahay ng Alumni. The QCIM 2 will take place on December 5 2010 at the Quezon City Circle. Registration is only up to November 7th.

| Posted in , , , , , , , | Posted on 11/03/2010 05:06:00 AM

I and my sister will be running at the Unilab Run, the 3rd leg of the Runrio Trilogy. Our last run was at the Adidas KOTR 10K and decided to try the 15K this time. We registered at the New Balance outlet at the 5th floor of Shangri-la Plaza Mall. 

Our RunRio card from the Rexona Run is not accepted so we registered again using the iPad and was given new cards for future registrations.

Here’s the photo of the Race kit and some freebies from Unilab.

Shaq Dressed as Beyonce for Halloween

Celebrating Halloween is when people get a chance to dress up whatever they want. But the 7” 1’ giant Shaquille O’Neal chose to be funny (or weird) looking drag queen as he dressed as Beyonce and lip sync “Sweet Dreams” by the same singer.

22 years old Alexandra Tobias, may be getting a life sentence after pleading guilty to a Farmville related murder of her 3 months old baby. She said she got angry and shook her baby when baby Dylan started crying, causing an injury to the head.

I’m not a big fan of Facebook games and applications. I have to admit that I used to play Texas Hold Em and Mafia Wars and is now currently into Backyard Monsters. But I don’t let these interfere with my activities of daily life. Gaming is supposed to be fun, right? I know others who have been into some sort of addiction to gaming and all I can see is the bad effects of it to their life. A complete waste of time, effort and money.

Sun Broadband Pocket WiFi


| Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 10/25/2010 03:11:00 PM

Now that Globe has MyFi and Smart Bro has Pocket WiFi, is there a possibility of having a portable pocket sized WiFi for Sun Cellular? There’s no such thing yet as of date, but I think it’ll not be long before it will be available.

Out of the 3 networks, I am using Sun Broadband as my Internet provider because of stability issues. I already did a pocket WiFi version for Sun Broadband a long time ago. And I even did it inside a car while driving around Makati. Connected were a friend’s netbook and an iTouch at the same time and both experienced good connections with only having to reconnect for only twice in span of more than 2 hours. What you need is a Sun Broadband sim card, a WiFi enabled phone and a 3rd party software WiFi sharing application like JoikuSpot.

A Letter to Backyard Monsters


| Posted in , , | Posted on 10/22/2010 11:45:00 AM

Dear Backyard Monsters, 

I never played a Facebook apps/game in my life seriously until I met you. You’re a big distraction in my life. I used to laugh at people who are too hooked in playing Farmville, Mafia Wars or any game in Facebook. I regard them as lame and a waste of time. But now, I have to check if anyone attacked my base camp, or if a new monster is ready for use. I have to log in just to harvest the resources used to building up my defences and buildings and see if there’s a weakling that I can attack and loot resources from. I waited impatiently as my monster workers upgrades my buildings, sniper towers, canon, lasers and tesla towers. 

BM, you’re the first Tower Defence game in Facebook that is worth playing. Because of you, I can take revenge on my ex boss by destroying his camp to ashes every single day. I miss you when you’re down, although you have Attack of the Pokeys to cheer me up. I understand that you’re just trying to improve the game and get rid of the bugs.

Oh, all my Monster Housing is full of monsters again. Bye for now BM! I have to attack my ex boss’ camp again.

Yours truly,

Try Backyard Monsters, a Facebook application by clicking here.

Video Demonstration of New CPR Guidelines by American Heart Association (2010)


| Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 10/20/2010 05:24:00 PM

Here’s a link to the video demonstration by American Heart Association (AHA) on how to do the updated Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.

So, the standard Airway, Breathing and Circulation (ABC) will now be Circulation, Airway and Breathing for adults and children. The ABC should still be followed for infants. Key factors that must be remembered by lay persons and health providers are to compress hard and fast, about a 100 compressions per minute. Lay persons now don’t have to worry about the “yuck” factor associated with mouth to mouth resuscitation. AHA hopes that with this new guideline, even bystanders will not hesitate to render early compression to a victim. But for experienced health providers, it is still expected to do 2 mouth to mouth breaths after 30 compressions.
For more information visit the official website of AHA.

How To Take Good Photos with a Mobile Phone


| Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 10/20/2010 12:17:00 PM

Everyone loves DSLRs. Most of my friends own one and some dreams or plan of having one. In every hang out place you’ll see someone holding a DSLR. Yeah, it gets annoying sometimes. A month ago, there were 4 dudes with their Canons and Nikons strapped on their neck while in a drinking session. Is it even comfortable? As for me, the closest thing I get to taking a decent picture is my Canon Powershot digital cam and my 5MP Carl Zeiss dual LED with autofocus Nokia N97. Not that I don’t want to have a DSLR, but I think it’s not practical to have your cameras with you all the time. Sometimes it spoils the fun you’re supposed to be having because you’re busy trying to take perfect pictures.

I bring my point and shoot camera with me whenever there’s an occasion, but when there’s a scene worth taking a picture of during ordinary days, I make use of my mobile phone. Yes, you can capture decent photos with a camera phone. Just make sure you have proper lighting, subject is properly focused and choose the right angle. Major problem with a cell phone camera is lighting. Poor light creates noise and blurring in pictures. That’s why I prefer taking pictures with my mobile phone during daytime. Many users are not aware of how to properly use the autofocus of their camera phone. In most case, you have to half press first to get a focus on the subject before clicking all the way to take a picture. Also, make use of the setting like the macro shot for very near objects, configure the white balance, ISO, etc. until you get the best setting for a picture.

What You’re Missing in Facebook Live Feeds


| Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 10/18/2010 01:05:00 PM

I have this suspicion long ago that I’m not getting all the live feeds from all of my friends in Facebook. It turned out my suspicion is right. I read updates when I’m using my mobile phone that I don’t see on my PC. So I did a little research and guess what I found out, Facebook controls from whom you get updates, what posts appeared on your wall, and everything. 


Because of this, I missed out on some events, birthdays and updates of some friends. Facebook limits and choose what to appear on your Top News and Most Recent Feeds.  So, how do you fix this? The answer is you just have to configure something on your wall. Scroll down your Home Page/ News Feed Page and you can see Older Posts and Edit Options on the bottom. Click on Edit Options, you should see Show More, Hide and Number of Friends. Now, on the Number of Friends you can see a default number 250. Turns out the more number of friends you have, the lesser updates you’ll see on some people. All you have to do is change that number to a higher number. I changed mine to 5000 and that did the trick.

Almost everyone now has a Facebook account, but the thing is we are not fully aware of some settings. Now, please do a favor of posting this to your Facebook Wall to let your friends know what they’re missing. Any additional tips and tricks you can share? Just write it down on the comments area. Happy Social Networking!

Nokia C5-03, A Cheap Wi-Fi Touch Screen Phone


| Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 10/14/2010 10:30:00 AM

Is Nokia starting to name their mobile phones with the names of some road (Circumferential Road 5, C-5 Road) here in the Philippines? I hope they go back to the one letter, 2 digits number naming system of their mobile phones. 

The Nokia C5-03 is a Symbian S60 touch phone. It has Wi-Fi, GPS and a fixed focus 5MP camera. Plus, it is really light weight too (93 grams). It has a 3.2” resistive touch screen, which is a disappointment since many prefer a capacitive touch screen. It has no secondary camera for video call and comes with a 2GB microSD card.

I Ran (Not Walk) at the 10.10.10 Run for Pasig River


| Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 10/11/2010 11:39:00 AM

We got stuck in traffic minutes before the gun start of the 10.10.10 Run for Pasig River. We continued on foot and did some running (warm up) up to the starting point. Luckily, we made it just on time before the start. A rush of thousands of runner rushed frantically towards us since we are in front of the starting line, so we waited for a bit before me and my friends joined the rest of the runners.

I ran nonstop starting from the Starting Line in Star City up to the 3K mark; I did some walking because I started to felt a stitch on my right side. But I was able to pace with the men of Army and Police up to the finish line with a Gun time of 31 minutes.

Authentication of Documents in DFA


| Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 10/11/2010 10:46:00 AM

Finally, I’m done with all the papers that needed to be authenticated for my application as a nurse overseas. The TOR and Diploma from my school, the Board Rating, License and Certificate of Registration as a Nurse from PRC and my Certificate of Employment (COE) from previous work, all finished after 2-3 weeks of processing.

The Transcript of Record and Diploma from my school is easy to process. I just requested from our Registrar to have the documents to be authenticated, I paid the certain amount needed including the fees for mailing the papers to CHED and was told to come back for the stub for release at DFA Manila. I paid additional fees at DFA Manila when my docs was scheduled for release, waited some time and was able to get hold of my papers from school with a red ribbon and seal from DFA.

Justin Bieber is an Old Man in Disguise


| Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 10/05/2010 11:30:00 AM

I saw this video from YouTube saying that Justin Bieber is really a 53 year old man in disguise and is a pedophile. The video is a parody from the famous Onion Network, known for entertainment newspaper and a website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news.

The news seem believable or true to those who is unaware of the Onion News Network, this is evident by the hilarious comments by fans and other people in the comments portion of the YouTube video. See the video below and go to the YouTube page and laugh your heart out reading the comments.

I'm not a Justin Bieber fan. What do you think about the video?

Trail Run in Singapore


| Posted in , , , , , , , | Posted on 10/03/2010 08:46:00 AM

We did a lot of things during our 1 week vacation in Singapore. We visited places, eat good and weird stuffs, shop, took lot of pictures, try different types of transportation including the Singapore Cable Car, and joined a running event. It was just a 3K mini marathon (since the 10.5K marathon registration fee is a little expensive for us), but it is not one ordinary run. It was a trail Run.

Tour de Trail took place at MacRitchie Reservoir last September 26th. I and my 2 sisters participated in the 3K run. Other categories were 10.5 individual and a relay. It was our first time to said place so we did not expect what the path would be. We started in the assembly area inside the Reservoir, then to the highway and into a passage going back to the reservoir. The passage is narrow and surrounded by trees. The ground is wet, muddy and some gravels, rocks, branches and twigs in some places. The path goes uphill and downhill. The view is great as if you’re inside a jungle and we even passed by a small lake. It was sure a long path that seems to never end. The trail goes back to the concrete part of the reservoir and into a straight line towards the finish/start line. Check out the photos I and my sisters took.

Traveling JetStar Airways to Singapore


| Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 10/01/2010 11:40:00 AM

My mom, sis and niece had a week vacation a week ago to Singapore. It was my mom who booked the flight via JetStar Airways. She was choosing between Tiger Airways and Jetstar but chose the latter because of convenience. My mom registered online and avail of the promotional discounted round trip fees to Singapore and back to Manila.

We board the plane in Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1. Although the fare was cheap, it does not reflect in the service given by the in cabin crew. They even offered to have one of our carry on to be checked in for free. The take off was on time. Boarding was organized. There’s enough room for our hand carry luggage. The flight both ways was comfortable with just enough room. The toilets are clean and well maintained. Since it was a short trip, we did not bother tasting the food in their menu. The take off and landing was smooth.

I recommend JetStar Airways for those who are traveling in tight budget. You can pay via credit card and chose your seat online. Just show your print out when you board. For more information and booking go to this link.

The Best Fried Chicken Goes to Bigg’s Diner

We have different tastes for fried chicken. Some like it spicy, some preferred it with gravy. But for me, the best fried chicken is something you can enjoy without needing to put anything to it. I found my best fried chicken for me at Bigg’s Diner in Naga City.

We had a trip a couple of week ago to Camarines Sur, a place where I lived 24 years of my life. The time we were traveling going there I know I have to visit my favorite places to eat and instantly think of Biggs Diner’s comfy place and retro look. Among my top choices are their fried chicken, tenderloin tips, cordon bleu, hamburger and barbecue. They have a different taste that stands out among other restaurants. The chicken is crispy yet juicy inside making it enough to satisfy your taste buds without the help of any condiments. Or if you want to make a sauce that is just perfect for it, try mixing the hot sauce and seasoning for a taste that resembles barbecue sauce.
