It’s been a good while since I last set foot on Boracay Island. Give or take about 4 years, I think. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the beauty of the place, because I really do. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that I’ve been busy traveling and exploring other places that I never really thought of going back sooner.
But the call of paradise is constantly heard and is eventually heeded.
So, after a long time of being away, with family in tow, I finally returned to the island where crystal clear blue waters crash the shore with powdery white sands.
Taking an early morning AirAsia flight from Terminal 4 of NAIA, my family and I safely landed at Kalibo airport with excitement and delightful anticipation.
Whether your idea of having fun is getting wet or chilling out, there’s seems to be no shortage of attractions at the Water Park and Snow Park at OneMount.
This incredibly huge and immensely entertaining facility is perfect for kids and adults alike.
During my recent trip to South Korea, the Water Park and Snow Park at OneMount which is located in Goyang City in the Gyeonggi-do province of South Korea were one of the very first stops right after arriving at the airport. Talk about shifting our Korean adventure into full gear right from the get-go, eh!
Basically, OneMount is a new concept of cultural complex space which combines a water park, snow park, a shopping mall and sports club. It is the world’s first sports theme park with global retail brands and trendy shops which fashionistas love visiting. Its shopping mall features numerous shows and cultural events and boasts of a 365-day coexistence with summer and winter.
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 against the leading telco in the country in hopes of probably luring old and new subscribers away from Globe.
I happened to chance upon a couple of sites just like this one, who have noticed the same thing. That’s why I decided to throw in my two cents on this issue.
Sun Cellular, which everyone knows is also owned by Smart, seems to be more busy criticizing and being critical of Globe’s own promos and upcoming events rather than just focusing on improving their own offerings.
Such has been the method of attack of both sister companies, it seems.
They say that you can experience a lot and learn one’s culture by trying out the distinct flavors of a country’s own food.
I absolutely agree. During my various travels in and out of the country, I make it a point to really try out the traditional dishes of any particular place. It is part of my immersion process.
That’s the very reason why when you chance upon a restaurant that serves flavorful authentic cuisine it somehow feels like you’re transported to that particular place.
There are a good number of these places in and around the metro. You just have to know where to find them. One of these restaurants happen to be Wee Nam Kee and their wonderful new dishes during their limited time offer called the United Flavors of Singapore.
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 photos and videos naturally get bigger. There’s no problem with that. By all means, anything better is always welcome. The dilemma lies in our device’s storage space. Storage has to keep up with the pace of how fast our hardware is improving.
Expandable memories such as Micro SD Cards are great but they slow down the performance of devices to a certain degree which is somewhat of a bummer. This is one of the reasons why a good number of smartphone and tablet manufacturers (like Apple) opt to take the built-in storage route instead.
If you’re one who enjoys photography, listening to offline music and dabbles in a lot of videography, storage limitation could prove to be a huge problem. Backing up and transferring media files can be quite a headache. It’s tedious and very tiring.
If you find yourself nodding and agreeing to some of the things I’m talking about right now, then what I’m about to introduce to you may well be considered a lifesaver.

Everybody knows Mario’s. It is one of the very few restaurants in the country that have stood the test of time and perhaps one of the more prominent establishments frequented by people, young and old, who know good food. I was recently at the Tomas Morato branch of Mario’s and had the opportunity to enjoy their […]
Last night, during the “Thor: The Dark World” movie screening by Nuffnang & Globe Telecom at Resorts World, my family and I went to Stackers Burger Cafe to have a quick dinner. Naturally, since they had a photo-heavy menu, our orders were based on the images of the food shown on it. Friends and family […]
UPDATE: Check out my rare opportunity to be with Ms. Patti Austin during her band practice (interview and rehearsal) here in Manila the night before her concert. Pics and video. Click here. If you spent most of your childhood years in the late ’70s and early ’80s like me, it would be impossible for you […]
You’re probably familiar with Conway’s Bar inside Makati Shangrila. Well, they’re saying “farewell” after a good 20 years of music and memories. Together with a few good friends from Nuffnang, we dropped by to have some fun and say “so long”. T’was a good run, Conway’s! Cheers!
