Once upon a time, there exists “reality” - a time synced to being offline for several hours a day. A time to step outside and feel the wind, smell the flowers, hear the birds chip, taste the delicious eggs made by mom for breakfast and see the green, luscious fields. There were no online social networking, no necessary gadgets to “fit in” to society, and no 24/7 internet connection. It’s purely life disconnected from the addicting virtual atmosphere of the world wide web. That was then. Continue reading
Talk about the Dinagyang Festival with all the street dancing and city-wide partying, I guess this human body could not take the squirming microorganisms flying through the air in a jam-packed, obviously crowded event. Just as the winners of the festival was announced, there I was on my bed with a thick blanket and a pile of tissue paper to nurse my running nose. Quite a creative exchange of fun and health, I must say! Boo!
So, a glimpse of my “reality” – Dinagyang Festival dancers (not including me) Continue reading
So I checked my domain name registration and what do you know – my personal domain and portfolio got expired and vanished into thin air. That site served as my online business card and when I inquired about me taking it back because I failed to check the expiration date, *poof* they flashed me with a bill of $300… WHAT?!
Wow. Good thing the wordpress.com folks did not erase this tiny little domain while I was away. By “away” I meant writing in another site and focusing on income-generating projects. Thank God for passwords and manual account deactivation! LOL With that being said… I’m totally back to blogging here in The Ilongga! You know, I can’t just leave and disappear at an instant – that’s because this site has been with me since it’s birth (June 10, 2010) and I just couldn’t let it go. Sentimental-ish, really.
So, how was the last seven months, you ask?
It was incredible!!! *enough said*
I thought Dr. Pepper was not sold here in the Philippines. Now I know where to get it. Simple pleasures, I suppose. haha. Gotta scratch this one from my Bucket List.

Beaches, boats, bats and caves - for an experience like no other, put the Puerto Princesa Underground River on your bucket list! The Underground River, as it is also known, or shortened even more to PPUR, was recently officially named one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Where else can you combine tropical white sand and waves, outriggers and canoes, stalagmites and stalactites, monkeys and monitor lizards all in one experience?
8am of this day: 36 hours of no sleep, stressed about the “port:21″ issue of my website database, tired, sunken eyes, and simply put, “look like crap.” This is me. Duh? haha. I went out of my room to get a hot cup of milk to help me sleep then I heard the “hard” hit of thick rain outside. I opened the front door, removed my jacket, and stepped out – felt the cool raindrops falling on my face. Surreal moment. 8)
I sure wish I look like this when I did my “rain bath” today LOL Continue reading
It has been a month-long hiatus. Phew – as if I did anything out of the usual, right? Nope, still the same – work, eat, obsess about losing weight, work, work, and work while traveling. Hahaha! You get the picture. After establishing two websites, I came to the conclusion that “Oh my, I still need a place to dump all of my BRAIN PUKES and not be too serious all the time.” Continue reading
