We were on our way to have dinner at California Pizza Kitchen in the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell when a pair of shoes called my attention. At first I thought these were the Oakley Bottlecap but in close inspection they were an earlier model - the Oakley Muzzle. Actually, the two are closely related.... Continue Reading →
I was up early today for no apparent reason. I was up 15 minutes before six in the morning to pee. I couldn't go back to sleep after that. But instead of feeling tired and groggy, I feel good, surprisingly. A li'l bit sleepy, though. As with almost every waking day, I turned on the... Continue Reading →
The Juggling Act
With everything happening all at the same time, how I wish I have Hiro Nakamura's ability to suspend time. I've been juggling a lot of projects that, in the end, hardly each one moves. I don't want it to be this way. I actually hate it -- that I'm the bottleneck, that I'm hardly in... Continue Reading →
My New Toy: SwitchEasy’s Runaway
I went to Singapore a couple of weeks ago for some R&R. There was really no itinerary for me for the trip except to try out the xiao long bao from Din Tai Fung and the chicken rice from Wee Nam Kee. Shopping wasn't really on top of the list even with all their malls... Continue Reading →
Back to Batangas Again
It felt great to visit Batangas again after a long time. I didn't know how much I actually missed the place until I was there. As we drove the extended section of the STAR tollway, I was in awe as to how much the province has changed over the years. We went to Laiya in... Continue Reading →
Getting Giddy with the Singapore Trip
I can't believe that I'm still excited to go to Singapore despite this being being my fourth time. Now with TripAdvisor and Google Maps and Street View, I feel so empowered in choosing the places to stay, go and eat. All these information posted on the web is just so awesome. For this trip, I...

Office Email Rant
I really hate this 150MB email capacity that we have in the office. My thumbdrive has a bigger capacity than that! Heck, even my cellphone's internal memory is bigger! We're supposed to be heading the digital initiatives of this company and yet this policy still dates back to last decade. If their IT cannot handle that,... Continue Reading →
Starting things right
I'm starting things right this year. Well, make that starting one thing right, and that is I bought and set-up the domain for my bike blog, Bisikleta.ph. Actually, I bought it last year but I just didn't have the time to figure out how to set-up those DNS entries until half an hour ago. Now,... Continue Reading →

Reflections on Making My DVD Player Region-Free
Hacked that Samsung DVD player to make it region-free and now it won't play your region's discs? That's been my problem for many months now until I discovered that the solution was just under my nose.
Condo rules suck
It's my first time to live in a condo, and in these few weeks that I've been here, all I can say is it sucks. In our old place, you can have stuff delivered and assembled any time we want. Here, you can't just do that. You got to get a gate pass from the... Continue Reading →

Pacquiao’s Fight: The Best and Worst of the Filipino
Yesterday saw the best and worst of the Filipino. It was a glorious moment as Manny "the Pacman" Pacquiao defeated Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico. The fight lasted for 12 rounds, and in each of those rounds, everyone watching was glued to the screen. As he takes his seventh World Championship title, he uplifts the... Continue Reading →
That’s Not Right
You know something's fishy when your Admin Officer is sporting LCD monitors while your creatives are using three year-old CRTs. While the latter is trying his best to use Photoshop in a 17" screen, the former is loving the full glory of Mafia Wars in full digital display. Fail.
