At the JolliTV Launch and the opening of Krispy Kreme Ayala

I was at the JolliTV Launch and I haven’t had my picture taken with Jollibee and the other mascots that had a costume make-over. It’s sad that Champ (the boxer with an oversized head) was not there. Yum was there though and he has a geeky and a techie personality. Continue reading “At the JolliTV Launch and the opening of Krispy Kreme Ayala”

MixWit Trial

[Update] – MixWit is Dead.

Heard of MixWit? I just heard of it in this TechCrunch blog post. MixWit allows you to create custom music playlists by searching for an artist or a title of a song (search is powered by SeeqPod) and then you drag the songs to an area. What’s good about it is that it determines if the audio you dragged is not available anymore. 😀 Aside from the built-in music search, you could simply add tracks by adding the URL of the mp3 file. 🙂 Continue reading “MixWit Trial”

San Juan, Batangas

House on a hill

Last Wednesday afternoon was really an adventure for me, Sha, Vien, Jhomz, Precious and LG. We went to San Juan, Batangas for an overnight stay. We spent the night at the house of Vien’s grandmother which is located on a hill. 😀 The lot in front of the house was where the film Spirits was shot and the lot beside the house was the location shoot of a certain Alma Moreno movie that I cannot recall.

Banda.PH is my photo blog dedicated to Philippine bands. I used the Hemingway theme for it and customize it a bit so that it would only show one blog post. Originally, the theme was designed to have two posts that are placed side-by-side. Then, instead of choosing the WordPress tags to appear on the footer, I placed it on a page by customizing the theme. The pages and the posts were indexed easily by Google. Thanks to Google’s Webmaster Tools. 🙂
