Hello. Just a quick update. I’m blogging. Again! It’s been a long, long road since 8List back in 2012. Just this week, the team at Manila Bulletin soft-lunched MBLife, which is essentially our own agile experiment at our millennial marketing efforts.
From the lighter side of Manila Bulletin, we welcome you to MB LIFE, our latest lifestyle portal among our ever-growing portfolio of new products. Yes, there are articles. But more than that, we choose to be a bit more self-aware by welcoming you into our home, namely to our curated collection of “very nice things.” On one hand, there are toys. Lots of them. Absent of pretense, we open our ever-growing toy collection to the public eye through our TOY SHELF section. Then there’s the nostalgia. Being in the most unique position of having chronicled news in the Philippines for the past 116 years, we open our doors to the prized archives of historical front pages, photography, and vintage ads through NOSTALGIA MANILA. These, together with our bite-sized web documentaries, tutorials and slice of life (the agonies and the ecstasies) op-eds comprise our daily dispatches for the everyday millennial.
Check us out!
Krizette Chu of Manila Bulletin’s Panorama asked me to do an opinion piece on how I thought technology changes the way we deal with people. Being a young parent, I wrote about iPad parenting (it’s benefits!) and building resilience. This is an excerpt of the piece. The full article can be found online.
This piece originally appears in full in the Lifestyle Section of The Manila Bulletin.
There was nothing but excitement as the escalator took me up to the floor of Arrozeria at the Century Mall. Known for its paella and other dishes focused on rice, the venue of choice piqued my (blooming) sensitivities to expand my palate. This was the lunch venue of Cheryl Tiu’s “Cross Cultures” food tour, a movement to experience the food we don’t often see (or taste) very often. For lunch, we had Rachaleve’s Kenyan Cuisine behind the counter. Her full name is Rachaleve Kamau, born in Nairobi and like many foreigners with similar origins stories of landing in the Philippines, fell in love with Manila in 2009. She lives here part time, sharing Kenyan cuisine in dappled regularity at bazaars and catering.
Dentists know that expanding a practice is hard work, but with a little creativity, there are easy things that can be done to help maximize a dental business.

Unfortunately, not everybody is able to turn an audio production or audio engineering career into a success. A lot of people are simply amateurs who experiment as a thing to do as a hobby or for simple fun, and they then start to see themselves as professionals. It is also for this reason that you can find plenty of online courses, many of which are free, in this field. However, these courses are often pretty much worthless for someone who truly wants to start a career. If you want to become an audio producer or audio engineer, you will need to go to a serious audio engineering school. This is where you will truly learn everything about how sound works, how to take it apart, how to use computers to manipulate audio data and more. You can choose to do this one step at a time, by taking free online tutorials, but if you really want to make it in this field, you will need to go to proper school.
A lot of companies organize large scale events, such as seminars or office parties, and forget to focus on audio visual equipment and lighting. This is mainly because they don’t know how much planning is actually involved in this. The technical side is something that most people have little understanding of, after all. According to a prominent audio visual company, a number of problems are most common.
There is a huge rise in demand for loans for people with poor credit ratings. This is mainly because everyday people are still suffering from the recent economic collapse. Additionally, prices continue to rise. People with bad credit often feel as if there is no way out for them if they need money in a hurry. If you find yourself in that situation, the following tips may be of benefit for you.
Everybody dreams of owning their own home. However, when they first approach a bank to find out if they can get a loan, they suddenly find out there is a lot more to it than simply making an application. This is why it may be useful to have a checklist at hand to make sure you do everything you need to do, and to do it right as well.

It’s not a lost battle as yet: switch to the phone tracker today that is worth your money!
‘Not Another Run-of-the-Mill iOS spy!’

Libon, which is short for “Life is Better On” is made by French’s Orange but is available worldwide to anybody, as an “Over-the-Top” app.
