Laptop drama again

Untitled
My laptop is now resting in SSL Laptop repair service in SM Cyberzone-SM City Bacoor. The repair person told me that my laptop will stay there for 3-5 days for them to check the problem of it. Recently, I'm complaining that my laptop shuts down without warning in the 1st 15 minutes of using it in the morning. Then I suspect that the laptop's fan is no longer working, the laptop shutsdown itself to prevent the motherboard get toasted.

So I closed my eyes and say good bye for the moment for my partner in the digital world.

Hahha finally win xp
Right now I'm using my wife's old Acer laptop, I revived it by installing Win XP, and geez.. its a pain and time consuming in installing Win XP.

Right now, I'll try to compose original content here in my blog, but for now, enjoy reading press releases and announcement from our PR supporters.

Daily Essential to a Healthy Body


Keeping your body fit is a lifetime commitment and a year-round activity. But it doesn't get as much attention as it does during the summer months, when our bodies are displayed in full glory – showing how much we have cared for, or neglected, the daily essentials to keep fit and healthy.

Let's start with your head. A sound mind is the first step to a healthy body, and this is the one part we most often neglect. Think positive and surround yourself with people and things that reinforce your strengths and correct your weaknesses.

Next, have a happy heart. We don't just mean the one beating and keeping you alive, although this is important too. Find inspiration in simple things to keep you going – when you are inspired, you will perspire for whatever it is you aspire to.

Involve your entire body. Now that you have your head and heart covered, it's time to turn yourself outward. Eat well, exercise, and get your body moving. You may not see the effects of an unhealthy lifestyle now, but it will catch up with you sooner or later.

Tying them all together – is keeping everything clean. From having a clear mind to reach for your goals, a clear heart free of worry, and a clean body fit for every challenge. Do this with a daily routine to clear and clean all three – free up some time for yourself, connect with others, and drink only water that keeps you inspired to reach for your goals.

Keeping yourself hydrated is important in naturally replenishing the required fluids to keep your body, mind, and heart clear. Not only does it help circulate blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout your system, it also helps your body quickly and easily metabolize, detoxify, and function.

Summit Natural Drinking Water is your partner in your quest for a healthy body, mind, and heart, helping you reach your goals by keeping you healthy and hydrated. Reach for it and scale the summit of a healthier, better you.

Outbreak Manila this April 13 - Run for Your Lives and from Flesh-Eating Zombies


Zombies are everywhere. From films to television show to video games, these flesh-consuming corpses have invaded just about everything, including pop culture. In fact, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has its own page category dedicated to zombies.
Dr. Ali Khan, Director for Public Health Preparedness and Response Office of CDC, says, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack." Makes sense right?

Here are some survival tips, should a zombie outbreak hit the country:
1.    Pack the essentials. Water, food, and first-aid kit – anything that will ensure your survival. 
2.    Choose your weapon. Admit it. Zombies are not the most logical creatures. They will do anything – anything – to get a bite out of your flesh and brains. No matter how anti-violence we might be, sometimes, a trusty bat to swing away the undead is not so horrible.
3.    A family that runs away from zombies together, stays together. Like any other calamity, it is better to set a meeting place with your family, in case you are separated.
4.    Stay elevated. Because higher ground gives you a better advantage.
5.    Avoid contact with zombies. AT. ALL. COSTS. 
6.    If all else fails, run –  and run until you cannot run anymore.

Although you might find this absurd, zombies are now preparing to attack the metro, because the zombies of Outbreak Manila are at it again.
Now on its 2nd year, this zombie-infested marathon has redefined the fun in fun runs since its first inception in April last year. Driven by the goal to stand out among the rest of the running events out there, Outbreak Manila brings a twist – and a very thrilling one as well, to the usual marathons. Not only will you run against time and the other participants, you will most definitely run against flesh-hungry creatures.
Mark your calendars red on April 13, march your way to Bonifacio Global City and prepare yourselves for an outbreak like never before. For its 4th installment, Outbreak Manila promises 5 kilometers of exhilarating experience, more exciting obstacles and of course, hungrier living dead.
And as tiring as running for your lives might sound like, not to worry, because Outbreak Manila is also brought to you by 100Plus, so no need to fuss. 100Plus is an isotonic drink formulated with 5 essential minerals to quench your thirst after running away from the living dead.  100Plus is available in 3 refreshing variants: Original, Orange, and Lemon Lime.

Aquaria leisure resort spells summer fun in Calatagan, Batangas

Summer in Calatagan, Batangas has never been as fun as it is nowadays with Aquaria, the new leisure resort development by Landco. Aquaria is a 1.2- hectare world-class leisure property designed for families and friends to enjoy an exciting holiday.

Aquaria is a world-class lifestyle resort with a white beach and resort amenities that is just two and a half to three hours away from Metro Manila—a perfect alternative to going to Boracay and other far away beach destinations.

Landco recently invited a select group of guests to experience the Aquaria resort lifestyle during a special launch event.  As much as all the guests couldn't wait to try out the water park and the white beach, they first opted to enjoy the morning snacks and especially lunch, which consisted of the perfect summer seaside fare: lobsters, prawns, squid, chicken legs, beef kebab, and pork belly—all ready for delicious grilling.

Summer thirst quenchers were readily available, including Aquaria's signature lemon grass tea, plus freshly-squeezed fruit juices, and liquor from the bar, which is right beside the Sands restaurant near the beach front.

After getting rested and fed, guests gamely participated in the different activities for the day:  games of soccer, volleyball and Frisbee, as well as water sports like kayaking and wind surfing. Some went boating and jet skiing, while others took a tutorial on stand- up paddle (SUP) boards.

Everyone enjoyed Aquaria's amenities and features, of which the highlight is the three-storey giant pool slide—Aquaria's central and distinctive feature at the water park. Other amenities include a welcome center, a kiddie pool, cove pools, cabanas, a sunken pool bar, a food and beverage area, and separate shower and locker facilities for men and women. There are sun loungers equipped with huge umbrellas, as well as hammocks, for those who wish to enjoy the sea breezes and beach views.

Aquaria is part of Landco's 12-hectare Playa Calatagan Leisure Tourism Estate, which houses its various innovative resort lifestyle concepts. All of these are meant to cater to local and foreign tourists, families, and corporate guests.

Aquaria is part of a series of projects meant to fulfill Landco's goal of turning Playa Calatagan and the rest of Calatagan into a premier tourism and lifestyle destination in the Philippines. Soon, Landco will be putting up a world-class seaside condominium near Aquaria, just a few steps away from the beach.

Aquaria welcomes guests at P400 per head for adults and P200 per head for children, which is already an all-day access. Those who want to avail of cabanas can do so at rates of P1, 000 for the smaller ones, and P1,500 for the bigger ones (good for ten people) for the whole day.

For reservations and more information about Aquaria, call Landco Pacific Corp. at 836-5000. Landco is the developer behind other leisure resort destinations include Peninsula de Punta Fuego, Leisure Farms, Hacienda Escudero and the Playa Series—Playa Calatagan, Play Laiya in Batangas and Playa Azalea in Samal Island, Davao.

Landco Pacific Corporation is the developer of high-end leisure communities, resort-inspired condominiums and luxury home communities. For more than 20 years, the company has made its mark in Philippine real estate, and is widely acknowledged as one of the leading leisure developers.

One Fighting Championship presents One FC: Rise to power live on May 31 in MOA Arena


10 April 2013 – Manila: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC), in association with Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC), returns to the fight capital of Asia on Friday, 31 May, with the highly anticipated first title defense of hometown hero ONE FC Featherweight World Champion Honorio "The Rock" Banario. Banario will put it all on the line when he takes on Japanese submission specialist Koji Oishi. Plus, pound-for-pound king Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes returns to the famed ONE FC cage when he squares off against Japanese MMA sensation Koetsu Okazaki for the ONE FC Bantamweight Interim Title.  All the action will take place at the 20,000-seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in what is expected to be the greatest fight card ever compiled in ONE FC history. After selling out arenas throughout Asia it is finally time for ONE FC to return to the Philippines.

CEO of ONE Fighting Championship™ Victor Cui stated, "ONE FC will be back in the fight capital of Asia on 31 May with a stacked fight card that is sure to get the adrenaline pumping for the passionate Filipino fight fans.  This event could possibly be the largest in ONE FC's history and features the top names in MMA, headlined by ONE FC Featherweight World Champion Honorio Banario. Of course, having one of the greatest fighters on earth fighting on this card in Manila is sure to be a special night for MMA. Bibiano Fernandes always brings his best when he steps into the cage. Close to 20,000 fans will pack out the SM Mall of Asia Arena to witness the greatest sporting spectacle in the world."

Tickets for ONE FC: RISE TO POWER will launch in Casino Filipino branches across the Philippines starting on 19 April 2013. 

Fans from around the world can witness the action online via live streaming at www.onefc.livesport.tv.

The first two undercard fights are available for viewing free-of-charge and the main card fights will be available for purchase at just US$9.99.

ONE FC Featherweight Champion Honorio "The Rock" Banario is one of the top Mixed Martial Artists in the world today. He is a member of the legendary Team Lakay where he trains alongside fellow ONE FC fighters Eduard Folayang and Kevin Belingon under head coach Mark Sangiao. Banario comes from a Wushu background, an ancient Chinese martial art whose practitioners are recognizable by a diverse range of striking techniques. Despite his striking credentials, five of Banario's eight wins were by submission, proving how versatile he really is. Banario captured the ONE FC crown when he defied all odds by defeating his fellow countryman Eric Kelly at ONE FC: RETURN OF WARRIORS via TKO. Banario will be looking to hold onto his title when he battles the ever so tough submission specialist from Japan, Koji Oishi.

Koji Oishi is a 35 year-old Japanese mixed martial arts veteran and former Lightweight King of Pancrase. He comes from a wrestling and karate background and is renowned for leaving everything on the line in brawls against some of the best in the business, including Chris Lytle, Carlos Condit and both of the Diaz brothers.

ONE FC Bantamweight World Champion Soo Chul Kim is currently undergoing shoulder surgery and will be out of action for an indefinite period of time. Therefore, ONE FC officials have decided that an interim ONE FC Bantamweight World Championship title will be introduced until Kim is ready to make a comeback.

Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes is undeniably one of the best fighters in the world today. His never-ending gas tank, explosive take-downs and lighting fast strikes have garnered him a huge fan base amongst Asian and international fans alike. Fernandes made his ONE FC debut in August 2012 at ONE FC: PRIDE OF A NATION where he defeated journeyman Gustavo Falciroli via unanimous decision. A veteran who has fought countless Japanese fighters, Fernandes will have his toughest test yet when he battles Japanese sensation Koetsu Okazaki.

Okazaki is the latest top Japanese fighter to sign for ONE FC and is one of the most experienced fighters in the entire bantamweight division. He is a tenacious competitor known to never back down from any opponent. Okazaki specializes in submissions but he is not afraid to go toe-to-toe with anyone if that is what it takes to get the win. Okazaki knows that a win over Fernandes will get him the global recognition that he deserves and the ONE FC Bantamweight Interim Title wrapped around his waist.

Piazzolla Brings Music, Dance, and Passion in a Magical Night last April 5-6 in Manila

Makati, Philippines (April 10, 2013) – Last April 5 and 6, the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of the RCBC Plaza was brought to life with music and dance as it held the "¡PIAZZOLLA! Not Only Tango" Concert in honor of the works and pieces of Argentinean composer and father of Nuevo Tango, Astor Piazzolla, almost 20 years after his passing.

After many sold-out shows held in Singapore and Armenia, ArtistVenture finally brought the concert to the Philippines, introducing the Filipino nation to the breathtakingly beautiful Argentinean culture, music, and dance of Nuevo Tango.

Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) and his "Nuevo Tango" music, a twist on the traditional tango style of music, was played throughout the night by various international artists including Pantastico on classical guitar, the Philippines' own addition to the roster of world-renowned artists. Creative choreography complementing the music was performed by Zie of Singapore, founder of Tango Theater in Singapore, and Asmik Akopyan of Russia, finalist in the London Ceroc Dance Competition. Both dancers brought to life Piazzolla's astounding masterpieces, accompanying and interpreting pieces such as Libertango, Ave Maria, La Paloma among others.

Capturing Makati City in daytime, dusk time and night time with Olympus E-PL1


makati at day afternoon night
This is my first attempt in merging 3 kinds of photo taken in one day with three kinds of lighting. One is the day time, then the next is the dusk time and then night time.

I spotted a perfect view of the other side of Makati City, I took this photo using my Olympus E-PL1 and 12-41 m.zuiko lens, I know its just a simple snapshot,but the most difficult is capturing the night time in slow shutter speed without using a tripod.

here's the whole photo of the merged photo set
