A visit in Yahoo! Philippines office

P8111398
I visited the local office of Yahoo! Philippines in Global City. Its my first time to be there and I didn't know that their office is located near Burgos Circle. I was there with some media and bloggers for the 2011 Net Index Study by Yahoo! and Nielsen. Its about the growing trend and behavior of internet users in the Philippines.

I just learned here that home internet is fast growing due to bundle plans and also affordability of subscriptions, there's a new trend coming in and that's all about the deal aggregations of group buying sites, and theres an interesting news about the state of e-commerce in the Philippines. I'm going to post here this week about that Net Index for 2011, and its more than just about social networking and searches.

I love to see that DeLorean car from the Back to the Future movie hopping in to the world of Cars for this 2nd movie, but then its just one of the dream cars that Owen Wilson, voice actor for Lightning McQueen, wants to own if he will have 5 cars, but for me, I'll add that DeLorean car and then a lifesize and running Lightning McQueen car so that I can drive it with my son and bring him to school and everyone will go wow. I'm excited to see this film on August 24 in IMAX and its one of the most awaited movie for me and my kid Ashton, but we might see this movie on a regular screen with my family, Ashton is too young to watch it in IMAX and (ahermmm in the big screen).

Smurftastic Movie - Smurfs the Movie in 3D

by: Daomisyel of www.glamourmoments.net

Blast from the past. It was in the early 80s when we were watching Smurfs cartoon on our televisions. And the feeling is very nostalgic seeing its 3D animation movie created by Peyo. Directed by Raja Gosnell for Columbia Pictures, this is the first film CGI live action hybrid that is produced by the film outfit. I really missed Smurfs, it was one of our favorite cartoons to watch. The movie started showing the Smurfs Village and their preparations for the upcoming Blue Moon Festival.

Are you ready for the 2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila this Aug 20 ?

Blogger Fest 2011
Are you ready for the 2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila this Aug 20?

This is not the part 2 of the Bloggers Fest that was held in Thunderbird Resorts Rizal last April 2011, but its the 2nd year of the global event celebration for Blogger.com 's birthday every end of August and that event was titled "Bloggers Fiesta".

We have organized one event for Manila, Philippine last year and it was also celebrated by our fellow blogger groups in Cebu and Davao, all events happened at the same time and day, but in different venues. I got a confirmation from my contact in Google that there will be no global celebration for this year but there will be something big coming for Blogger.com birthday, so let us watch that out.

Because of that many are waiting for this event, I decided to continue and organize another Blogger Fiesta Manila and it will be held in a bigger venue and I think can accommodate at around 500 bloggers.

Are you ready?
Are you game ?

let us spread the word!
