IMG_1919

I was able to attend the Tatt Awards last Friday and was actually very curious to know who will win the Indie Rocker category (which is I am more interested in). I waited long for this and then Up Dharma Down was already onstage while they were announcing the finalists for this category then finally, they mentioned the winner, Up Dharma Down.

Blogging Live from SM Megamall WiFi Testing

Speedtest of SM Megamall’s Wifi

I am currently at SM Megamall for the WiFi testing. Apparently it’s not that fast basing it on the speedtest minutes ago. Websites I accessed during the test were just the basics – Plurk.com, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, NU 107.5 live streaming and Tweetdeck.The connection becomes intermittent once in a while. Uploading pictures here in WordPress is also struggling to be completed. I also tried to play Restaurant City in Facebook but unfortunately, it’s a fail.

Acer Aspire Timeline Is Part of My Wish List

Acer Aspire Timeline 3

I think it was 3 weeks ago when I was invited to the launch of Acer Aspire Timeline with a dinner cruise in Manila Bay. I was actually curious of what this new laptop of Acer is all about, so read the student laptop reviews about it first, of course. I have been an Acer user for quite some time and I am satisfied on the performance of my Acer Aspire desktop which I bought in Abenson’s last December 2008.

What’s interesting about this new line of laptops from Acer is that it has a long battery life. I always bring my laptop charger because my laptop’s battery can only last until 2 hours. For the Timeline, they boast that it can go up to 8 hours. This is good news for me because it will make me confident not to bring my charger anymore. There are two reason why their batteries last long: Intel’s Core™ 2 Duo ultra low voltage processors combined with Acer’s PowerSmart button and the Laminar Wall Jet. It’s a literal LAPtop because it doesn’t heat that easily. Continue reading “Acer Aspire Timeline Is Part of My Wish List”

Eraserheads on Sandbox TV Commercial

Eraserheads Sandbox TV Commercial

While I was at the Sandbox media launch event last June 11th, I didn’t realize that it was already being shown at the screen behind me. It was Karla who told me that it has been playing there since we got inside The Bureau. I was surprised to see that I saw the Eheads together in a TV commercial. I remember the TV commercials they had before such as Pepsi Megadrive, San Miguel Homeboys, 2 Chippy commercials and some others. I think the last commercial they had was the Bogchi Chippy.

Why Do You Want to Blog?

This is my commentary about Prof. Danny Arao’s blog post: Huwag Kang Magblog Kung…

Prof. Danny Arao’s blogpost about bloggers who become “sell outs” in the blogosphere is indeed thought provoking. I have been blogging for a long time but it was only until now that I get to meet some other bloggers in “real life” through the the different blogger or media events organized by different marketing or pr agencies. It’s only now I realize that there are some perks by becoming a blogger. I must admit it was fun since I get to experience things I have not done before ( especially the food that I have not tasted before). In exchange of letting me experience those perks of course I should return the favor by writing about their product or event etc. That’s ‘social exchange theory’ in real life, but it’s not being forced. Even though they feed me with all the food they want, nothing can control me on what I will say. I will still write a bad review if I didn’t like the taste of the food or if the service is bad. I make sure that it’s being done constructively and not because I am being too personal about it. Continue reading “Why Do You Want to Blog?”
