Hey, everyone! I can’t wait to share with you these new gadget accessories I’ve been using with increasing frequency the past few months.
If you’ve been following me on my blog and on social media, you probably already noticed that I’ve been putting out more and more videos recently. In fact, I started going heavy on vlogging as well (You can check out my videos on YouTube and on my Facebook Page).
What I normally do is shoot my footage using the Nikon D5600 DSLR and Nikon KeyMission 170 action camera, then work on them on my laptop. But, as much as I love editing my videos on my laptop, a 17″ portable workstation isn’t something you can always bring along anywhere you go. That’s why I sometimes find myself having to wirelessly transfer video files from my DSLR and action camera onto my iPhone especially when I want to put out videos on Instagram and Facebook.
But transfering videos files via bluetooth or even through a wifi connection isn’t really the ideal way to go. Can you imagine how big these video files are? It would take an eternity waiting for wireless transfers to complete. Not only that, long transfers eat up a ton of battery power, too.
But boy am I glad that all these woes are now a thing of the past — all thanks to my PhotoFast iOS Card Readers. Particularly, the PhotoFast CR-8710 (for the regular sized SD Cards) and the CR-8800 (for Micro-SD Cards). These lifesavers are designed to work seamlessly and effortlessly with iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.
You probably already know just how obsessed I am with streaming media at home. I spend a good chunk of my downtime kicking back in bed while enjoying a number of shows on my UHD (4K) TV using my smartphone and Google Chromecast.
Google Chromecast has always been my “go to” device when it comes to streaming entertainment content. So much so that every TV at home is equipped with its very own Google Chromecast.
But it seems that there is a new device that is slowly taking Chromecast’s place in my heart. This, my dear readers, is the Xiaomi Mi Box Android TV.

I recently took my family on a quick road trip to Nueva Ecija to check out the recently opened branch of Isdaan Floating Restaurant.
Isdaan Floating Restaurant has long been a popular destination and stopover spot for locals and tourists alike. They serve great food and offer up some fun and novelty attractions.
If you’ve already been to their original branch in Tarlac and fell in love with its unique ambiance, you’re surely gonna enjoy Isdaan in Nueva Ecija. It retains the same atmosphere and ambiance that we have come to know.

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.

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 […]
