Reading blogs via mobile is fun


I love reading blogs on my mobile phone and thanks to this Snaptu app on my Nokia C3, I imported all blogs that I follow in my Google Reader. I read around 70 plus blogs on my phone for the 2nd time and I always do that whenever I’m not busy or just killing some time. I surfed around for almost 2 hours reading some blogs while waiting for the time of my meeting, I got bored and then decided to surf and read blogs for 2 hours and Its like rediscovering the blogs that I’m follow and found out that other blogs are no longer updating or transferred to a new blog url and host, I should have updated my Google Reader and import new blogs. Its fun, now I’m wondering what will be my activity if ever I have my own tablet , I think the use of it will not be just for playing games but also reading blogs.

I’m going to update my blog list and then add more blogs here in my mobile phone.

September 2011 is a good month to start collecting DC Comics

I’m going back to collect comics and maybe I’ll follow on selected titles only, been absent in the world of comics lately and I think it’s a good start to buy, collect and read new stories coming up for this month of September, because if you don’t know yet, all 52 titles of DC comics will be rebooted to issue 1, why did they do that after all these years? Maybe because its their marketing and brand move for the coming century for DC comics. All titles will be back to issue number 1 and I experienced it before the hype and great comic madness after buying and collecting issue 1 when JLA was published last 1997, it moves me back to comic collecting and trigger my feet to troop down to Comic Quest and Filbars every Saturday to hunt the latest issue of JLA.

Sony invites you to use augmented reality "TV Size Guide" before you buy TV

This is a cool gimmick from Sony, you can now test and see virtually what will be the look of your living room, bed room or even your viewing room by using their augmented reality to test what is the best TV for your home or office. All you need to do is take a photo of your wall or your TV desk table and then print out that augmented reality paper base and then stick it in to the space were you want to see your TV, and then upload the photo you took to a website and see a virtual view of your room with a virtual TV.

How it works
The prospective TV buyer simply goes to the TV Size Guide website and follows four easy steps:
1. Download and print out a marker – this is a simple shape printed onto an A4 piece of paper that the app will recognise and transfer into your selected TV
2. Place this marker where you want your TV to go, either on a flat horizontal surface or mounted on a wall, and take a photograph of it.
3. Upload the image to Sony’s online tool and it will automatically pick up the marker, working out the appropriate scale and position for your TV. Choose different size TVs which will appear on top of the marker to find the best one for you.
4. Save your images to create a gallery of choices to compare and contrast.

(source: Sony Europe PR Team)
Sony launches this online tool to help people find the right size of their TV for their home and help them get a strategic view of what it will look like with a real tv virtually.

2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila production note 2

I did this error calculation yesterday and now it left me a sore back, bones and muscles. I didn't calculated the weight of these goodies that I picked up yesterday, and its so heavy and even put it in super big bag so that I can carry it easily, but it was all a miscalculation problem. Its so heavy and I carried the package all the way around the city for one hour and then going back home.

I should have brought that bag stroller, and now I'm nursing myself with this lots of back, muscles and bones pain, and also headaches. Last night got a fever after arriving home, because I got tired and burned out. I'm glad that I'm still alive and I'm excited to give these goodies away to all participants of the blogger fiesta.

I'm glad that these musicians gave a relaxing feeling when I attended a Samsung event in Ansons in Makati. I didn't got the group's name, their performance is awesome!

right now, my assignments are:
1. finalize that yohgurt set up
2. mail blast all particpants
3. update the blog post of the event
4. email all guest speakers
5. email event team
6. create my presentation for tomorrow
7. create a back up plan if ever internet is wonky inside the mall
8. attend a bloggers meeting with World Food Program in Makati
9. Sendnowna meet up in Pasig City
10. finalize and claim that iPod touch and bags raffle giveaway for tomorrow.

2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila production note 1

Before I start my production note for the Blogger Fiesta, I like to comment that why is that this Chowking Chinese style fried chicken tastes like Jollibee's chicken joy, even the gravy are the same with Jollibee. I thought that their Chinese style fried chicken will go on to level with the yummy taste of Bon Chon and Chicken Charlie (but my wife's fried chicken-ala ChonCharlie tastes the best), but after tasting it, I can say that their chicken is a complete failure, I'm starting to hate their chicken now and will just eat in Jollibee if ever I want to eat a fried chicken. Their tv commercial is fake and all their actors on the tvc. Sorry, I'm so disappointed. Have you tried their chicken ?

After a long day of meeting and traveling the other day, my agenda is to meet the marketing officer of SM North EDSA and my team (Kath and Futomi of Anime Alliance PH) to have a meeting and lay down the final plans for the upcoming Blogger Fiesta this Aug 20. It was a long travel for me that I came from the South and going to the middle part of the North, I'm glad that there's MRT and buses available on that day, I ate at McDo and then Chowing after my meeting and long journey going back home.

But even that the Chowking meal is a complete fail, I'm still happy that the Blogger Fiesta event is going smooth and thanks to all bloggers who signed up and showed interest that they are willing to learn more about blogging and get tips from our guest speakers.

Sponsors and donors are coming at last, I now receive lots of emails, phone calls and FB messages from some people and companies that they are giving support for this event, and thanks to them for supporting us, because this is event is produced without any funds and budget, and thanks to all people around me for helping and also big thanks to SM Cyberzone and SM North EDSA for hosting a venue for us.

It will be an awesome event this Saturday. Our topics for the panel talks are so interesting, I know everyone are excited and preparing for another big bloggers gathering for this Saturday, I promise that you will enjoy and learning about blogging and social media here is FREE!

so kita kits sa Saturday.

Az video blog 2011 - interview: Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo for Junior Masterchef Pinoy edition

Junior Master Chef Pinoy Edition will start on August 27 in ABS CBN.

read my story here at

The reign of the Pinoy Junior Masterchef is coming in ABS CBN this Aug 27

I remember that everyone talked about the Australian version of the Junior Masterchef that was aired in our local tv, it was a buzz that reached in the circle of social media individuals to make the show do a little viral, I’m not aware of that show and when I switch on the tv and jump into that local channel, I saw that these kids are super and master chefs already for me, because they cook like the real deal and their presentation of food are very professional. Its like the Masterchef show, but here for the kids version, the bashing and straight to the point comment of the masterchef judge is very mild and with lots of advice given to the kids if their food is not good or lack some tastes.

For the upcoming Junior Masterchef Pinoy Edition that will air in ABS CBN on August 27, 2011, the Philippine tv scene and trend will change and cooking will reign, just like the trend of badminton, running, football, Beyblade and the popularity of Azkals team, the show will bring cooking and inspiration to people who want to be chefs and kids will be expose at an early age to try the art of cooking and introduce people to appreciate food and be a master foodie.
