For many (if not all) Pinoys, Christmas is all about giving. We look forward to buying gifts for family members and loved ones. It’s a long held Filipino tradition that we are truly proud of. And no matter how different this year’s celebrations may be from what we are used to because of the ongoing pandemic, the spirit of giving will always be alive in all of us.
Yearly, Globe myBusiness supports SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) with the #GiftLocal campaign that aims to encourage Filipino consumers to purchase their gifts to family and friends from local small businesses.
For some reason, as I was looking for something productive and interesting to watch online earlier today, I happened to chance upon one of Inquirer.net’s live webinars on Facebook. The topic of this particular session was about mental health, a subject of discussion that I know is very present and relevant in this day and age, but something that needs to be brought more to the forefront.
And since I was able to catch the webinar right before it actually started, I decided to stay and listen to the many notable speakers who were scheduled to discuss about the challenges of mental health and the possible ways to help people going through these difficulties, especially now that the pandemic and lockdown has triggered more anxiety and depression in many of our fellow Filipinos.
Good news, guys! Cubao peeps, rejoice! Globe’s GoWiFi service is finally at The Araneta Center! Imagine that! It’s been a looooong time coming but the wait of many Araneta Center patrons have finally ended!
I was at the grand launch of Globe and Araneta Center’s milestone partnership earlier today at the activity center of Gateway Mall. During this event, both companies formally announced that the GoWiFi service has arrived in one of the metro’s biggest lifestyle complexes.
The Optical Media Board (OMB) expressed recently its full support to the #PlayItRight anti-piracy advocacy of Globe Telecom by helping educate the general public against malware, cyber security threats and access to illegal digital content and torrent sites.
This is most certainly welcome news to all of us. With the OMB throwing their full support, this will definitely improve the efforts of Globe as they continue to keep up the good fight against piracy.
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.
Who’s excited to watch Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3?! I know I am! It’s one of the most anticipated animated films of the year. And being a father to two teens who love watching animated movies, Cars 3 is most definitely on our must-watch list.
The latest installment of Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3 follows the adventures of champion race car Lightning McQueen. If you haven’t seen the previous two Cars films (But, why?!), there’s still time to catch up! Haha!
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.
There’s just something about Disney movies that bring out the child within us. The way their stories enchant us, matched with the kind of musical masterpieces and cinematography that effortlessly takes our breath away and fills us with wonder.
That’s why it’s no wonder that from the moment Disney released a teaser of a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, it has immediately become one of the most anticipated movies of 2017.
Many, if not all of us, grew up watching Disney animated features. And seeing them finally transform these childhood favorites into live-action adaptations is like a dream come true.
