    Meeting Online People in Person aka Plurkfiesta

    Photo from @saber_kite This meet-up happened last November 9 but I forgot to write about it. I know, I suck. Okay, so from left to right we have Tin, Bogs, Kat, Keysi, Shabby, Sara, Lemuel, Rina, Ade, Marcus (in glasses), Larry (head on the table), me and Mia. Yay! Apart from Lem and Rina, this was the first time I’ve met every one else in person. It was supposed to be a file share meet-up so I brought my external hard drive and MBP just in case anyone wanted to copy off from me. I didn’t really need to copy anything from anyone but I wanted to share what I…

    Chicharron ni Mang Juan

    Mikey Bustos is one of the people I subscribe to in YouTube ever since I saw his Filipino English Tutorial. He posts a video each day, which I admire because it’s kind of hard to come up with a topic to talk about in front of the camera and YT people usually post about 2-3 times a week at most. Aside from his Filipino tutorials, he also sings, does skits about his family, and reactions videos. Recently, he came here in the Philippines and made a commercial with Jack ‘n Jill’s Chicharron ni Mang Juan. The commercial is similar with his YouTube videos and also features his version of his…

    Dinner at Conti’s

    After shoe shopping and dropping by mom’s former colleague’s house, I mentioned that I was hungry and mom said “Let’s order chicken empanada from Conti’s.” I pulled over and she said “Would you like to dine in instead?” Of course I said yes! Any opportunity to try something new is always a good idea. [I want to be adventurous with dining/eating out and not just eat fast food all the time]. So Conti’s it is!I looked at the menu and chose Mango Royale Salad for starters. It’s made up of iceberg lettuce with fresh mango cubes tossed with special house dressing. It can be ordered for sharing which costs 160,…

    MichelAngelo Shoes

    Mom and I were on our way to her former colleague’s house in BF homes when we passed by MichelAngelo Shoes because she needed new working shoes. MichelAngelo was recommended by another one of mom’s colleague and apparently it’s where their other colleagues buy their work shoes.Their shoes are quite pricey for my taste but they have really good quality, style, and design, and are totally worth it. Their sizes are different from the ones we usually get from the malls, which is perfect for us because mom and I have big feet. They didn’t have stock for the size of the shoes my mom wanted so she ordered them…

    Halloween 2011 in pictures!

    Last Sunday after going to church, I went over to Mia‘s place for a day of trick or treating. It was supposed to be a morning event but I came over late and we planned on just hanging out, taking pictures, because mom got me a new point and shoot camera. Then her mom said there were kids outside and that her kids should dress up and go trick or treating. Mica was dressed as a black fairy and Mia looked like Miley Cyrus in Party in the USA. 😉 First house we went to was still in their street. We saw a lot of kids there so I told…

    All About Dora [Sept-Oct ’11]

    I don’t recall if I blogged about Dora’s health condition but I have been posting in Twitter updates about her struggle. Dora was born stretching. Dora is the fourth [2nd female] puppy born of Kylie. She had a white “glove” on her left front paw, just like Cyndi’s. She was named after Dora the Explorer because we came home one day and heard her crying out for help, she was stuck behind a big box under the stairs. We assumed she was able to jump out of the dog bed [or was accidentally pushed out of it], walked in the direction of the stairs [we noticed all our dogs always…
