My Eraserheads Live Custom Photo Book

After waiting for so long, it finally arrived!!! 😀 I created my own custom photo book using blurb.com because I like the way how I can customize the layouts of the pages and also the ability to add text. 😀 Continue reading “My Eraserheads Live! The Final Set Custom Photo Book Arrived!”

Ako Mismo!

UPDATE: Maxene Magalona posted her statement on Facebook regarding Ako Mismo Campaign. Please read it on her note. Thanks to Jim Ayson for the tip.

While I was watching the delayed telecast of Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton’s fight, I saw the Ako Mismo ad on TV. It was actually surprising to see Ely Buendia there in the ad itself. I remember Gang Badoy of RockEd Philippines once wrote in an article that Ely Buendia has this certain charisma that every politician wished for. Continue reading “Ako Mismo!”

Bye Lola

Sunset experiment

It has been a week since Lola Pining passed away. I remember when we were still kids, Lola was our guardian every time Dad went out of town for work. It has been always like that until we became older. Lola would usually pour her cup of coffee on her rice during breakfast which I think some may find weird like when I dipped pandesal into my glass of Coca-Cola. Continue reading “Bye Lola”

Russ Swift: One Really Good Driver

Just last Thursday, I had a chance to watch Russ Swift (Guiness World Record holder) at the Manila International Auto Show that’s currently being held at the World Trade Center. He’s such an awesome precision driver. I can’t think of getting myself to drive to parallel park just the way he did it. Continue reading “Russ Swift: One Really Good Driver”

Ipanema and Haribon Walkathon: I Walked the Green Mile

People who know me well would get startled that I participated in a walkathon event because my main physical activities (the ones that I do on a daily basis) are: getting up from bed, walking towards the fridge and some computer-related stuff like typing, moving the mouse and so on. Before the walkathon, I was quite nervous how long are we supposed to walk. However, such thought didn’t discourage me from joining the walkathon. I joined because I want to be one of those building awareness on the destruction of Philippine rainforests. Continue reading “Ipanema and Haribon Walkathon: I Walked the Green Mile”

Meeting BB Gandanghari

BB Gandanghari

Rustom Padilla is dead spread all over the internet via blogs, YouTube, social networking sites and microblogging sites. With the death of Rustom, Bebe Gandanghari was born. During the blogger’s meet-up hosted by The POC at mag:net Bonifacio High Street, me and Sha did live-blogging there. Sha was in-charge of the text, while I took photos. 😀 Continue reading “Meeting BB Gandanghari”

Eraserheads Live: The Final Set Experience (Part 2)

Ely and Raimund -1

This is the 2nd part of my Eraserheads Live! The Final Set Experience. You can check out part 1 here. The first song was Magasin. It was one of those songs that they weren’t able to play during the first reunion concert. It was like the biggest videoke party that one would experience the moment Magasin was played. Continue reading “Eraserheads Live: The Final Set Experience (Part 2)”

Eraserheads Live: The Final Set Experience (Part 1)

Almost a group hug

Being in front of them playing again after the first Eraserheads Reunion Concert is surreal. Just like the first one, I felt nervous before the show started. I was thinking how will the entrance be or what are the songs that they’re going to perform. Also, this is the first and the last time that I will be taking their photos as Eraserheads, some thing that I wished I was able to do back then but I cannot since I was younger and live far from Quezon City where their gigs are usually held. However, I was able to watch their concert in my alma mater during High School. And when I was able to watch gigs already, they were still called Eraserheads but Ely already left the band. Continue reading “Eraserheads Live: The Final Set Experience (Part 1)”

Francis Magalona: R.I.P., March 6, 2009

Minutes ago, I just read Sarah Cada‘s plurk about the death of Francis Magalona. Someone posted the link to GMA.TV’s story about it confirming that Francis M. has indeed died from cancer at the age of 44. The news was confirmed by Vic Sotto in Eat Bulaga which I missed by the way since my brother on sick leave was having a phone conversation in our living room. Continue reading “Francis Magalona: R.I.P., March 6, 2009”

IveBeenHere got featured in Inquirer.net

IveBeenHere, is a Facebook app that I’ve worked on with Melvin Vivas. The app aims to promote Philippine tourism. It is an interactive Facebook app that utilizes Facebook features such as the publishing a feed story to a user’s profile every time an app user tags a place that he/she has been to or a place that he/she wants to go to, and other activities such as sharing photos from a Facebook album to a particular place, comments/reviews you made on a place and seeing the activity feed of your friends who have added the app on the home page of the app. Continue reading “IveBeenHere got featured in Inquirer.net”
