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.
Guys, let’s have a little talk about something that’s hopefully just as important to you as it is to me. It is one of the most important aspects of one’s lifestyle and should be everyone’s priority beyond merely dressing well or looking fit.
It’s called, HYGIENE.
Hygiene basically is the condition or practice conducive to maintaining health and preventing disease, especially through cleanliness.
Brushing your teeth, taking regular baths, cutting your nails, changing your clothes… these are just some of the many ways of maintaining good personal hygiene. Staying clean and healthy by being constantly conscious of one’s cleanliness is a sure fire way of keeping harmful germs and bacteria at bay.
Boracay is one of the most visited islands in the Philippines. It is pretty much the go-to destination for locals and tourists alike not just for summer but all year round. And with good reason.
Just recently, Boracay has once again been named Conde Nast’s, “World’s Best Island”, which isn’t really any surprise to anyone who’s been to this breathtaking paradise. That’s why it’s no wonder that many of Boracay’s visitors come to its beautiful beaches to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and to de-stress.
But, let’s face it. With all the available accommodation options on the island, it really is quite difficult choosing which place to stay at. We all want to stretch our budget whenever we’re away on travel, right? But not to the point of compromising quality service, naturally. If you’re the type of person who is looking for the perfect balance of comfort and affordability, I’ve got just the right place for you.
This wonderful hotel which you can call your “home away from home” during your getaway is called, Azalea Boracay.
Very rarely does one chance upon an external speaker that sounds just as amazingly good as it looks. The Marshall Stanmore is, no doubt, one of those coveted devices. Its gorgeous classic looks invoke a sense of Rock ‘n’ Roll nostalgia that just begs to be brought home the moment you lay your eyes on it. […]
The NudeAudio Move L is regarded as the BIG DADDY of the entire Move line. If you aren’t familiar with NudeAudio’s Move line, this entire family of speakers deliberately have a simple look… and with good reason. NudeAudio has allocated majority of their funds for the Move series to research and development instead of superficial […]
Just a quick review of another external power bank that I am currently using (Yes, I love external power banks… isn’t it obvious? LOL!). This new power bank I am currently using, among others, is called the “ibattz VOGUE BATTSTATION”. Don’t be fooled by it’s small size. This little baby carries 5600mAh of charging power. […]

Being a person who loves staying active and always on the go, staying healthy is of utmost importance. Yes, exercise is vital, but fueling your body to endure the demands of a physical lifestyle and occasional stress is equally needed. I’ve been in show business since I was a child. Given the kind of load […]
Acne. One of my most dreaded problems when I was a kid. I guess most (if not all) adolescents go though this somewhat “rite of passage” in their lives, one time or another. Anyone who has gone through this frustrating and sometimes embarrassing phase in their lives would know the pains one would go through […]
I’ve always been an advocate of good health. Whenever there’s an opportunity to share valuable health tips with my readers, I jump on it. I am very careful when it comes to supplements and the kind of vitamins I put inside my body. Hey, you only have yourself to blame in the long run if […]

Max, our little teacup Pomeranian, always loves waking me up for a little “cuddle time” in the morning. He won’t stop bugging me until I’ve really opened my eyes and looked at him. He loves playing with my hair and ears. When he’s sure that he’s gotten my attention, he starts to cuddle up beside […]
So… I just finished doing an entire 30 minute cardio routine – AT THE CARWASH! How crazy is that?! LOL! The guy cleaning the car was probably wondering what I was doing running around and doing twists and jumps for an entire 30 minutes in the corner of their shop. But hey… hitting two birds […]
Some people wonder how I can have a foodie wife and yet stay physically fit. Quite a number of individuals have already asked me how I manage to hop from one resto to the other with my wife (at times even everyday), eating all sorts of dishes, yet not letting most of the calories show […]
Dear Mr. Bengero… I have made this open letter to you to address all the accusations you have raised against me directly and indirectly through conversations with common friends and acquaintances. As much as I would rather keep quiet and put all this to rest, I am compelled to write this to clear my name. […]
Summer is upon us! And what better way to enjoy the heat of the sun than by heading off to one of the best islands in the world — Boracay! You’d be glad to know that our favorite (and world’s best) low cost airline — AirAsia — will allow guests traveling to Boracay this summer […]
The more the merrier, wouldn’t you agree? This saying also holds true for travelers especially when it comes to more affordable flights and new destinations. So, get ready and pack your bags because our travel plans just got a whole lot merrier because of AirAsia!
True to AirAsia’s promise to their customers of better things ahead, they have once again proven this by providing another service that offers unparalleled convenience. Now, you can enjoy the comfort of checking-in and boarding flights using your smartphones with AirAsia’s E-Boarding Pass now available on all domestic flights in the Philippines.
Last Monday, I was able to hone my paparazzi skills during lunch at “The Old Spaghetti House” in Robinson’s Galleria. A couple arrived and took a table not even an arm’s length from us. Before they even sat down, it was obvious they were already overpowered by their raging libidos. Rawr! Seriously! Hugging-squeezing-kissing-rubbing-groping and all […]
