I remember back in the day when I was a kid… I’d have to wake up early to catch the Saturday morning marathon of cartoon shows on TV. It was called the Sarurday Fun Machine on RPN-9. Back then there were no 24-hour cartoon channels.
Kids and kids at heart (like me!) have it easy nowadays with cable television. And they have it great!
But it seems things are only going to get better because our favorite cartoon shows and characters can now easily and conveniently fit inside our pockets with the amazing partnership forged by Globe and Turner!
Yes! It’s true! Globe and Turner has brought their wonderful partnership to life with the launch of the Cartoon Network Watch & Play App!
I’ve long been a fan of Julie’s Biscuits products. From biscuits, cookies, crackers to even their delectable wafer rolls. My wife and I usually buy them in the grocery for our kids and stock a couple more for ourselves.
Here’s the catch, though… for the longest time, I thought that the Julie’s Biscuits brand which makes these delicious treats and our local Julie’s bakeshop were one and the same.
I even remember visiting a grocery in Penang, Malaysia just a couple of months ago and found myself surprised to see Julie’s Biscuits being sold there. I even thought to myself, “Oh, look! Julie’s is now being sold abroad?”
Boy, was I wrong.

Every now and then I’d like to surprise myself by using a variety of smartphones which I consider to be standouts in the market. It’s a great way to gauge the development of technology and the beauty of competition. One particular standout that I have recently started playing with up until now and couldn’t get […]
Storage, storage, storage. It’s one thing that we gadget geeks can never get enough of. Well, that and battery power of course. Here’s the thing folks… as our devices get better and better and as the cameras of our smartphones are constantly upgraded with better sensors and higher megapixel capabilities, the file sizes of our […]

Destressing normally needs a good amount of distraction to take your mind away from the usual concerns of everyday life. Now, how one destresses really varies from person to person. My usual and preferred way of relaxation is hitting the gym to lift a few weights and do a couple of laps on the treadmill […]
Just because men, by nature, are physically stronger than women, doesn’t immediately make them any better. Don’t you find it wonderful to see independent and empowered women who know how to be beautiful and dainty, yet (for lack of a better word) “badass” at the same time? Folks, meet Cassie and Mina. Don’t be easily fooled by […]

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I couldn’t help but recall this saying as I quietly observe the latest developments on the ongoing (and never ending) telco war. As of late, I just noticed that Sun Cellular has been quite forward on its attacks against Globe Telecom. They seem to have been making not-so-subtle snipes […]
I recently had a short but very sweet staycation down south at Acacia Hotel Manila. It was my first time to experience this fairly established fixture right smack at the heart of Alabang, Muntinlupa City. And since staycations always make me feel like a kid again, this particular occasion was no different. I was just as […]
There is a reason why “Shelter” is one of the three basic (and important) human needs with “food” and “clothing” being the other two. Apart from the obvious reason of providing protection from the weather, shelter gives tangibility to a person’s notion of a home – a physical manifestation, so to speak. It is a […]

I’m a huge fan of Grab. Whether it’s GrabCar, GrabTaxi, GrabExpress, GrabBike or GrabHeli. There really is no downside to any of Grab’s services and I’m sure those who have also experienced its convenience will easily agree with me. In case you’re one of those who still take the cab more often than GrabTaxi, allow […]
