Mikey Bustos, Bogart and Jamich video blogs now playing inside provincial bus

Its fun to see original video content that are a fruit of YouTube are now playing offline and now plays inside a provincial bus, I think the contractor or provider of this TV inside the bus generate some profit from advertisers, I’m surprised to see 4 tv sets inside the ErJohn bus liner, I hop on it during my Cavite-Manila travel and I went in agony when Jamich videos are playing (sorry guys, I’m not a fan of their romantic tandem), I think it was a 30 minute video presentation of the history of Jamich or some kind of short film with never ending smooching.

Bird photography at home

P3162304 crop_Snapseed
I have some bird photo collection in my archives, these are birds that I took photos while they are in the wild. I didn’t got a chance to publish some photos here in my blog, but let me start a new set and show here some photos of birds that regularly visit our tree here in Cavite. Every summer these birds are very active and noisy in the morning. I discovered their bird activity when our pet cat caught a small bird youngling, I’m glad that the bird didn’t died from the bite of our pet cat, I took the bird away from my cat’s mouth and kept it in a small cage for the bird’s recovery, there are no wounds but the legs and wings are weak. I let the bird recover and release it after some days. I went online and did some search and I learned that its a fan tail bird that usually found in South East Asia.

Frozen bootleg toys found in local street market

1601266_10152430851744276_7113437074930011614_n
Let it go… Let it go… I’m sure you are reading this with a tune of Let it go song from the movie Frozen, for others I’m sure they will let this go because it’s a bootleg toy version of Disney’s Frozen. I found this in a local street market and they sell like pancakes to young girls. I haven’t seen yet the original version of this toy in our toy stores, the only thing that I saw are the mini figs and the Disney Infinity toy line. I saw the original version only via Youtube, there are some Disney collectors who posted already their review online about the original and licensed version of Frozen.

I’m excited for this weekend because I’ll be in my home town province in Sampaloc, Quezon province for the annual fiesta, now dubbed as “Bulihan Festival” , formerly known as Sampalukin Festival or normally, Fiesta ng Sampaloc, Quezon. I’ve been going to the annual fiesta for many times during my youngling years, me and my entire family go here in Sampaloc, Quezon every year for the fiesta and clan reunions, but then when the time I aged to be an adult, being busy as a student and then busy as a freelancer, I stated to drift away from my hometown and just stayed here in Manila for work and projects.This year, I'm super excited to go back again, I will be there to attend the fiesta and also cover it for a travel magazine, and also cover it for my blog to help push some tourism promotion to our home town.

Metrobank prepaid card– use it to shop online, withdraw cash or just swipe it to pay your grocery

IMG_6853
A new card has been introduced to me few weeks ago, I’ve already seen this card before and I’m a bit surprised that Metrobank now offers a prepaid card, its like a debit card, you can load it with some cash and you can use it to pay for your shopping online or just swipe it at the cashier counter. The version of Metrobank is the best for today’s prepaid card, because you can also withdraw money from the ATM machine. You can bring this whenever you travel or want to shop around and do cashless payments over the counter or thru online shopping.

My interview about original toys vs.bootleg toys (fake or knocked off toys)

P6133974
Here’s an email interview from a student back in 2009, the interview is for his thesis about the art of toy collecting and also about original toys and buying bootleg toys. I can’t remember the student’s name, I accidentally found my old word documents stored in my 2009 folder, I’m publishing this now in my blog in order to shed more light about fake toys and its harmful effects to humans.

Article summary: This will be a list of tips for telling original toys apart from their China-made imitations. Since toy geeks and hardcore collectors will obviously know these things already, the article will cater more to non-collectors, such as mothers or girlfriends buying toys for Christmas presents.
