I’m so excited! One of my most awaited shows on Netflix is finally out — Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events! As soon as the this new series was teased online, I immediately added it to my personal list on my Netflix account so I could get notified as soon as the show is available for watching.
Netflix is just incredible! It’s pretty much all I ever spend my free late night evenings doing because this service has already established itself as a purveyor of quality shows. Through the years, the global internet television network has produced award-winning TV series and favorites such as House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things, and The Crown.
Philippines AirAsia has officially appointed Captain Dexter Comendador as president and chief executive officer effective 10 January 2017.
I’ve had the pleasure of being with Captain Dexter Comendador — or “Captain Dex”, as we fondly call him — on a good number of trips. The most recent of these trips was during the launch of the MNL-TPE direct flights in Taipei just back in November of last year. I first met him during the welcome ceremony of the AirAsia Airbus A320neo in Malaysia.
Always a fun guy to be with, Captain Dex is consistently ready with interesting stories which he would happily share with everyone over coffee and a good meal.
People are always caught up in the never ending search for convenience — the endless pursuit of making our lives easier and less tiresome. That’s why we now enjoy some of the most incredible innovations such as online shopping, instant messaging, smartphones and, yes… even convenience stores.
Now, if you’re one of the countless Filipinos who regularly brave the daily commute, finding ways to make traveling from point A to point B less of a hassle is most certainly a welcome thing.
And since we’re on the topic of convenience, you’ve probably already heard of this little thing called the BEEP CARD.
Optimism is a wonderful thing. Just like us Filipinos, it is also an intrinsic American value. It is a spirit open to anyone and everyone willing to try. What characterizes America’s past and how it looks to the future is the unshakable belief that anything is possible.
Beringer, for its part, is an iconic American brand — not just a name on a bottle. It is much more than just a winery. It is an authentic brand filled with the spirit of American optimism, of hope and dedication. Confidence and perseverance. It is consistent, trusted and respected, both forward looking and extremely proud of its evolving legacy.
I love to travel. It’s just one of those things that I truly look forward to, whether the journey is near or far.
The past few years have been especially good to me in terms of travel and adventure. I’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to see new places far and wide — and I continue to enjoy these wonderful escapes which I happily share and recount to all my readers through my blog.
One thing that sometimes becomes a difficulty when going on a trip, which I’m sure frequent travelers would agree to, is carrying a ton of items and clothes. But it only becomes a burden when one chooses the wrong kind of bag to use.
I love bags that can carry a whole lot of stuff yet can be brought along with ease and comfort. Normally, I’d go for a backpack since it frees up both my hands to do other things. But during trips that require me to be away longer, a regular backpack wouldn’t suffice. During these instances, I normally depend on a trolley or a duffel bag. But, trolleys, especially the bigger ones, usually need checking-in, while duffel bags are a strain on the shoulders and hands after long periods of carrying.
Thankfully, I found the answer not too long ago.
It’s called the Venque Duffel Pack 1.0.
It’s a common problem for most travelers and perhaps a concern also for some individuals and families who own a ton of smart devices at home… the lack of available electrical outlets to simultaneously charge your tablet and smartphones. I’ve experienced this dilemma countless times during hotel staycations and out of town getaways. Just imagine… each […]

Let me be the first to say it in case you felt the same way, Airdrop sucks balls every so often. It’s faulty and it isn’t reliable. It’s great when it works but it’s such a pain when it doesn’t. And boy does it falter quite often. I sometimes take countless minutes trying to detect […]

Seriously… can we please stop saying that “The Filipino Spirit is Waterproof”? Do you really want to keep saying that over and over again as a kind of coping mechanism for our suffering due to government’s incompetence and lack of infrastructure preparedness because of corruption? Yes, our spirit is waterproof just as it is […]
Last Tuesday (June 10, 2014), I had the awesome opportunity of meeting and having coffee/breakfast with WordPress/Automattic founder, Matt Mullenweg.

Oh man! The video below reminds me so much of my internet provider! It will most likely remind you of yours as well (especially if you’re using “cable internet”). Watch the video below… Hilarious, right?! Perhaps because almost all of us can actually relate to it… (which is kinda sad, too). *sigh!*
This is one fuuuunnny video by College Humor entitled, “Look At This Instagram”… what adds to its hilariousness is the actual truth the parody depicts. Every frickin’ Instragram user can relate to it! The video isn’t very new. Nevertheless, I’m posting it here for those who haven’t seen it yet and for those who want […]
