The Rainbow Warrior

The Rainbow Warrior at Gensan port

Yesterday my kids and I together with the Sox Bloggers went on board Greenpeace’s ship called the Rainbow Warrior. Sir Avel , the leader of the group arranged the field trip with people at Greenpeace. According to Miss Leah Guerrero, Greenpeace’s Regional Communications Manager in Southeast Asia, this is their first ever open boat day in Mindanao. We were very lucky indeed to be invited on board the ship. Leah personally took care of us, the Soccsksargen bloggers. She fetched us from our meeting point, provided the transportation going to the port and back and she even bought us snacks. She was our tour guide on board the ship with the help of Amrit, an Indian national who happens to be a blogger. Continue reading

Mobile Tethering

I have a lot of gadgets with wifi. When I am at home, I have no problem connecting them to the internet. My house has been a hotspot since 2005 even before hotspots were easily available. Although hotspots are very common nowadays, there are times that you need access to the internet and cannot find a wifi area. What to do? You now have more choices to connect to the internet. The most common choice that have been around for some time are the plug-in internet. Continue reading

My Bag

This post is inspired by a magazine that features the content of a celebrity’s bag. I’m not a celebrity but hey, whose to stop me from feeling as one. . Hahaha

I use this particular bag because everything fits in it. It’s actually a give away gimmick from my counterpart. It’s supposed to be a doctor’s bag but I have been using as my “Man Bag” for years now. I tried to replaced this bag a couple of times. I even bought a Samsonite clutch bag but I always go back to using this one. You can already see a tear near the zipper because of the heavy load that it bears. Continue reading

My Pocket’s Best Friend

What thing do I always bring with me wherever I go? Well, aside from the obvious bare essentials like my wallets and cellphones, this thing is the 3rd most important thing that I always bring with me. Unless I board an airplane, it stays in my pocket or sometimes in its holster. It is my Swiss Pocket Knife. Today I bought a new one. It took me a few months to find the right model that I needed. It’s the Victorinox Swiss Army Explorer Pocket Knife. Continue reading

3rd Gensan Car Show

My son who is 12 years old is into cars lately. Well, toy cars for the moment. He has a lot of Ferrari from the Shell promo. He has more than one complete set of the collection. He had this interest in cars from playing his video game Need for Speed. He can identify a Porsche from a Ferrari, a Mercedes from a BMW and even knows the racing accessories for cars like spoilers and body kits. I bought him a few magazines about cars and I always entertain his questions when he is asking what kind of car this or that is. To add to his enthusiasm for cars, I thought what better way to expose him to his interest than to bring him to a car show. Well, I was in luck because a friend of mine sent me a sms that there is a car show at the Gaisano Mall Gensan. Continue reading

That sequence of date will never return in our lifetime. So where will you be on 10-10-10 at 10:10 AM or PM? Well, heres something that caught my attention. Its One Day in Earth. You can read the full details here.

This is just like what You Tube did on July 24, 2010. Watch it here.

I wanted to participate in the You Tube event on that saturday but as usual, I was as lazy as a sloth. This time around, i’ll think more positively and with proper mind conditioning, I think I can do this. I have already signed up on their website. Im thinking of my concepts and where will I shoot my videos or photos. I hope I can solicit the help of friends or family to participate in this event.
