Who’s been following the NBA Finals lately? I know, I have!
I’ve been an avid NBA fan as far back as I can remember. And the game of basketball has pretty much been my life when I was a kid. I’d join league competitions and pickup games every single day along with my friends. That’s why watching NBA games is one of my favorite forms of relaxation and serves as a great stress reliever for me.
This year’s NBA Finals is particularly more exciting because of a couple of reasons:
- This is the 3rd consecutive season that my team, the Golden State Warriors (Go, Dubs!), and the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing off in the Finals. A first in the NBA!
- The Golden State Warriors have cruised through the Western Conference playoffs, straight to the Finals with absolutely NO LOSS! That’s right. After winning Game 2 of the NBA Finals yesterday, they are already 14-0 in the playoffs. Also, another record in the league! Insane!
And while it seems that the Golden State Warriors are every bit the juggernaut everyone expected them to be after signing NBA superstar and former MVP, Kevin Durant, many fans are still hopeful that the Cavs will bounce back from 0-2 deficit and win the series. While that may seem like a daunting task, it is not impossible. If you remember, during last season’s Finals, Lebron and the Cavs were also in a similar situation against the Warriors. They were down 1-3 in the series and yet they rallied to force a game 7 and ultimately win the championship.
I’m really hoping the Golden State Warriors maintain their winning streak and become the first team ever in the NBA to complete the playoffs undefeated.

It’s really amazing how the internet has revolutionized our way of life in every way possible, wouldn’t you agree?
Apart from the ways our connected world has changed the way we work, play, learn and socialize, it has even incredibly altered our viewing habits.
I remember back when I was a kid, we only had 5 television channels (2, 4, 7, 9 and 13). 24-hour programming, let alone cable television were remotely even figments of one’s imagination. Apart from that, cartoon programs were only shown every 4PM in the afternoon and during Saturday mornings. Bummer, right?
Today, not only has 24-hour cable programming become common even to the regular joe, it is actually slowly losing its market all thanks to the way high-speed broadband internet connections have changed the way we consume entertainment content.
In our household, our family hardly watches regular television programs on cable television anymore. We don’t find ourselves rushing home, trying to catch the start of a particular show anymore. That’s because everyone in our house has gone the way of STREAMING content — all thanks to our recently installed Globe at Home high-speed broadband internet connection.
I recently got my hands on a nifty (but not uncommon) device that many people use nowadays — a Bluetooth headset. But this one isn’t the kind of headset used for listening to music or drowning out external noise. It’s the kind one wears for phone calls mostly.
And it’s not just any kind of Bluetooth headset… this particular unit is made by one of the most reputable brands in the industry. Plantronics.
This, my friends, is the Plantronics Voyager 5200. It’s a handsome little earpiece that you wear on either ear and comfortably sits there, ready to assist you during phone calls.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to drive the Ford Ranger to Victoria, Tarlac, to check out Bambike and the positive force for change they have become for the Gawad Kalinga community. It was one amazing day trip that was equally enjoyable as it was eye-opening.
Just recently, I had the pleasure of taking the beautifully engineered Ford Explorer out for a spin. During this time, I drove my family up to Baguio City for some much needed rest and recreation.
From the moment, I first sat inside the driver’s seat of this handsome baby, I immediately knew that the Ford Explorer was going to be a joy to experience. Boy, was I right! Not only that… it actually exceeded my expectations in terms of performance, features, and delightful surprises.
Who doesn’t love protective cases? Apart from a case’s main purpose of keeping your device unharmed from nicks and bumps, it also gives your phone some much needed character. A case’s design is a statement. It also tells a lot about you and your individuality. And hey, admit it… we are all about standing out […]
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 […]
I’m pretty sure a good number of you guys scrambled for the new iPhone 6 (or 6 Plus) during the Christmas season. Whether you got it as a gift or you got it as a present to yourself, every iPhone owner knows what comes after setting up your awesome device… It’s time to go shopping […]

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 […]

Feed your inner geek by checking out the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story mural which was recently unveiled at the Sky Dome of SM North Edsa! It’s awesome!
We Filipinos complain about a lot of things. Common Pinoy folk would bicker and rant about how bad the state of our lives are and how tired we all are about the sad and seemingly hopeless predicament majority of us are in. As much as we are all entitled to express our feelings and frustrations, […]
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. He was visiting the country as part of an extended tour he was having which included a few more countries nearby. Given that I’ve been a hardcore WordPress user for many years now and also […]
Resorts are a dime a dozen nowadays. So many know of beaches and popular relaxation destinations in places like Kalibo, Bohol, and Palawan. It’s so difficult to decide where to go. But did you know that a paradise-like location can practically be found just beside Metro Manila? A wonderful breathtaking getaway which is just a comfortable […]

This digital age we now live in is really amazing. Imagine… it has changed the way we live, in virtually every way. Wouldn’t you agree? It has changed the way we shop, the way we eat, and most especially, the way we travel. When you go abroad, every single moment is precious — and the […]

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 […]
