back in manila

We arrived a few hours ago from Subic, after a brief Clark stopover to buy some stuff at the PureGold duty-free shop.

Sam's sure happy with her loot, hehe.

Gerry's Grill Subic is ideally located -- Sam never fails to fall asleep when we have lunch there due to the soothing breeze. And that's not a bad view of the sea, either. Posted by Hello

delete

Just one of those days.

Jolted in the wee hours of the morning by that 6.2 quake earlier this morning. Nokia charger damaged and replaced. Power outages at the coffee shop that's a wi-fi hotspot. Problem with wireless networking configuration. And a toddler who's harassing me and her mom -- mostly her mom right now since I'm working. That's what happens when you're both working while you're out of town and you don't have a yaya in tow.

Gotta end this. What a day.

small world

If you haven't yet, visit the Pinoy Tech Scene blog of Migs Paraz. This site aggregates feeds from a number of tech-related Filipino blogs.

Proving that everyone is really connected by six degrees of separation or less, Migs' girlfriend is a friend I've known for years -- except I lost touch with her and only found her again thanks to the magic of the Internet.

Apart from covering the tech scene, Migs also has his own blog, so check it out. And thanks, Migs, for citing my "Surviving the Zeroes" essay and blog there.

got game?

We just started a new YOU Technogear section called GameTime, which features Filipino gamers and game developers.

I'm proud to say that Gabby Dizon is our first GT victim, er, guest, hehe. Prior to making history as one of the designers of the first Philippine computer game, Anito: Defend a Land Enraged, Gabby was part of our tech team as a web developer for INQ7.net.

Read the GT article and find out how you could be the next gamer or game developer featured in Technogear. Then, go out and buy an original edition of Anito, which now sells for 495 pesos.

I know, I know, the pirated copy is still cheaper, but hey, let's support our Filipino game developers, OK?

blog fever

Whew, talk about blog fever! Thanks to all of you who've been dropping a line after reading my YOU Technogear article "I blog, you blog, a-they blog."

Keep sharing your blogging experience -- I promise to visit your blog and contact you in case we decide to feature you as Technogear's Blog Addict of the week. And on that note, congratulations to Ateneo sophomore Mark Calida for being our first Blog Addict. Check out "Mark wants to rule the world" and find out how you can be featured next.

Oh, and sorry Mark because Ateneo lost to La Salle. I'm from UP, so laging heartbroken sa UAAP, hehe -- pinaasa na naman kami! Still, that was a pretty amazing run in Round 2, so let's hear it for the hardfighting Maroons.

Don't have Gmail yet? Want to enjoy one gigabyte of free storage with Google's e-mail service? Then go to YOU Technogear, read this article, and find out how one lucky reader can get a Gmail account -- and be published online in Technogear.

Better hurry, though. The deadline is Friday, September 24, 5 p.m. (Manila time).

subic redux

We're off to Subic again in a few hours, so here I am trying to get some work done before we leave.

Yeah, right -- that, and the need to update this blog.

I'm an addict -- aargh!

tomasino high

Neil Tan (of 421-B, like me), one of my good friends from way back when I was still a young (and thin, dammit, hehehe -- well, at least a lot thinner than I am now) 11-year-old freshman at the University of Santo Tomas High School, is running a website and forum for members of USTHS Batch 87.

Neil and Tricia Parino (412-G) are doing a great job as moderators. Of course, sometimes it's hard to track down people and invite them, so if you're a member of USTHS Batch 87, go to the website and join the forum and Yahoo! e-group.

Now, if only someone could get me in touch with my English teacher, Ms Natalie Nebit...

And where in the world is John Ulysses Abu?
