CAT B15Q smartphone–the rugged phone perfect for the handyman and outdoor person (unbox and review)

DSC_0031

When you mean rugged, it means that it is waterproof and dustproof, plus it can withstand a lot of beating or drop. That’s the main feature of this smartphone from CAT. We know CAT or Caterpillar as a manufacturer and distributor of construction machineries and not only that, they also bring the best tools and gears for construction. But for 2014, we encountered this new mobile device with the CAT label, it’s the first smartphone from CAT that is designed and modeled perfect for construction people, handyman or for outdoor adventurous person.

Just like the CAT B15Q, this version is a bit different, The CAT B100 is not a touch screen phone but it got the same feature of the CAT B15Q – its impact resistant, dust proof and also water proof, according to CAT that this phone can survive for 30 minutes under water. Its not a touch screen (again) but another awesome feature is that the big buttons on the phone, you can still use this to type even when you are wearing gloves.

Having a clean toilet is like a celebration ‪#‎1MCleanToilets‬ (pledge now with Domex for Unicef sanitation program)

DSC_0024

I agree that people jump for a celebration when they see a clean toilet,  when I travel around the country or in another country, I always check if the toilets are clean. If ever they are clean, I map it in my mind that these establishments are a real comfort room.

TMNT toys in McDonalds Happy Meal (Nov 2014)

IMG_2635

I spotted that McDonalds Happy Meal is distributing the new TMNT toys, this comes in a bundle with a set of a Happy Meal. The TMNT turtles are riding their own snowboard…or maybe it’s a hover board. There are no articulations or any special features of the toys, but it’s a good toy for small kids who loves to play gravity slide race at home.

Jollibee Kids Meal toy - Pokemon Pocket Power Pals (Nov 2014)

jkm_pokemon

Here’s another toy exclusive from Jollibee Kids Meal. When I saw this toy and learned about its feature, it reminded me of that Pocket Power toy back in the early 90’s. The Pokemon Pocket Power Pals is just like that. The toy can fit inside your pocket and you can carry it and then play with it where ever you go.

Cue Modern Barbeque - my food crawl adventure in Bonifacio High Street, BGC part 3

Cue Modern Barbecue restaurant Bonifacio High Street BGC Food Crawl Adventure (2)

Its my first time here in Cue Modern BBQ, from the title of this restaurant, you can tell that they serve heavy meat, pork and lots of grilled goodies. The term cue or BBQ will ring a bell for heavy meat eaters’ ear because the food concept here is inspired from Southern American cuisine. It can be spicy, chili, or meaty, that’s one of the iconic flavors of a Latin and Southern American style. I was thinking of a Cajun style, but Southern is always the best!

DSC_0148

Before we went to Tagaytay last semester weekend, this item were delivered to our home , it’s a box containing a crying doll and a package set of Huggies dry pants.

Unboxing the stylish, sexy, slim and sleek KATA i3s 1.3ghz quad core smartphone with 5.0 inches HD display (SRP: PHP6,499)

DSC_0052

Kata Digital Philippines might be the silent type of smartphone brands here in the country, but I observed that they are the most sought after smartphone brands by teens and young adults, I think the design and its size are very attractive to the eyes of mobile users who love a bigger screen, HD display and a customizable usability within the Android OS, but many wanted more features, power and also design that’s why the maker of this devices never stops in upgrading.
