We went to Makati to meet our friends in a nearby bar at around lunch time, after the meet up my wife Lace told me that we should eat our lunch first before we go to Bicutan, it’s a long drive going there and we’re not yet familiar with the roads especially at the west service road.

After the meet up, we went to Commune restaurant to eat our lunch, it will be our 2nd time to dine here, my last time was in a dinner with several digital marketers few months ago, I tried the adobo rice meal because it was mentioned to me that it is good, and yes their adobo rice meal is one of the best.

wechat moments

Its not just a simple hello or how are you, our online conversation is not just a simple message, in social media and with a use of social media apps, our conversation online is added with some entertainment value. I’m not sure if everyone will agree about this, but I’m sure some of you will give a nod and say that they are belong to this part of a group that enjoyed talking online with their friends and followers in a fun and informative way, I think that’s the reason why we are so hooked online.

The topics posted below are about pinoys internet culture, and we found out that university students and young professionals are the most active users of internet. Ages of 16-24 are heavy users of internet and social media apps like WeChat, the users are now the influencers of their own network taking the next level of online chat and conversation with additional amusement flavor to their readers.

Toy spotting in Toy Kingdom before Holy Week


IMG_6989
Toy Spotting: My new hobby for toy market watch that I’ve been doing since late 90’s when I started to collect action figures and toys. In toy spotting, I just visit a toy store, look for some interesting toy for sale especially the discounted toy items, I usually don’t buy a toy when I do toy spotting, but there are times that I buy toys if ever I like the toy and the price is discounted. Back in the days, we call it toy hunting, we hunt for toys and buy the rare ones that are sold for a cheap price. I usually visit the mainstream toy stores and provincial malls that have their own toy section, there are times that they have awesome vintage toys sold inside that are now collecting dust.

Events today for STAR WARS DAY 2014 in the Philippines (May the 4th be with you)

If you are a Star Wars fan and want to celebrate the "May the 4th be with you" or Star Wars day, then I suggest you check out these 2 events and things you can do to commemorate the joys of being a jedi, sith, bounty hunter, clone, jawas, or a droid, or being a Star Wars fan.

May the 4th be with you celebration is an event created by Star Wars fans to celebrate the film franchise, the original play date of the 1st Star Wars films was on May 25, 1977, but fans from all over the world wants to celebrate it on May 4th, because the "4th" sounds like "force", like in the movies when Obi Wan Kenobi sent a good luck message to Luke Skywalker in the 1st film saying "May the force be with you".

so here are the two events we have for this month, too bad that I won't make it on both starwoidy events

Many people went to the beach during the national holiday of Labor Day last May 1, 2014, I know some of you just stayed home and others went the beach to party and enjoy the great outdoors. I like to show you our beautiful Philippine beaches during the nation wide #Laborday 2014, not just the #LaBoracay for May 1, but there are so many awesome beach spots around our country to spend relaxation and splash with the salty sea and catch all the UV rays.

I did some Instagram stalking and I found these photos posted by users taken from different beaches around the islands of Philippines.

For the next labor day, you will know now where to drop by next.
