If I were to summarize the Anilao experience into one dive site, it would have to be an area called Batok, a rich reef located right behind Sombrero Island. Huge barrel sponges seascapes with the divine hand, flat table corals lined with hovering juveniles and fry and fan corals that pipe the currents like wind.

Surprise! I’ve been using Spotify Premium since February!
Before April 8, going to the Spotify website would give you a “Spotify is not available in your country” message (unless you’re using a proxy of course). Well, not anymore! Spotify officially launches in the Philippines today, at 11:00 AM with Premium Access for PHP 129.00 a month payable via credit card or PayPal. The soft launch done by Coca Cola Philippines gives you access to the desktop versions of Spotify. Today, you can now download the Spotify app from the local iTunes store and the Google Play Store.
A good camera bag is like the best pair of jeans you can own: comfy, rustic and beat up. You know you’re in love with photography when your camera bag has absorbed the dust and flavors of the sojourn, much like how a cast-iron skillet cooks with the spices of the last hundred meals.
That being said, the Cobram Outpost is part of my lifestyle regimen to make the logistics of underwater photography more bearable. This 2014, I’ve been shooting exclusively with Sony’s RX-100 Mk II and I still can’t stop hankering as to how I’m enjoying myself a lot more with the upgrade in technology and the downgrade in size. Lugging around more than 5 lbs of equipment that was not SCUBA gear can be a huge impediment so the move to a compact camera was a welcome one.
There are so many new electronic gadgets on the market every year that, if you love to keep up with technology, you can end up spending a lot of money. It was anticipated that consumers in the United States would spend $555 per person on new electronic devices in 2012, which was a nine percent increase from the previous year, according to NPD. That’s a big chunk of money and, if you are on a budget, it can be impossible to get all the electronics you want or need without overspending. But that doesn’t mean that you have to go without electronics in order to stay within your budget.
When it comes to running a successful business, no one has a crystal ball that predicts the future of the industry.

The key is to know which information to use and how to use it in order to make the forecast you need for your respective industry. Below are five ways to find and use data to predict where your industry is heading.
Did two dives at the famed USAT Liberty Wreck in Bali, Indonesia last month. I’m a little jealous of the fact that the locals have easy access to one of the most beautiful wreck dives in modern history. A shore entry from the resort and a few meters down leads you to this humongous America cargo vessel that was sunk by a torpedo during WWII. There were no casualties as the ship was already parked. Years of current drifted this wreck to the nearby shore.

Business meetings for any company are a time to discuss anything from new ideas, to new opportunities, or any number of things. There are also many different mediums to have business communications. One medium in particular that has been proven effective for progressive meetings is the face to face meeting. The reason is because having a face to face conversation not only allows you to hear what the other person is saying, but see how they are saying it; meaning non-verbal body language indicators. As a matter a fact, statistics show that only 7% of communication is spoken, the other 93% consists of the tone of voice and the body language. This makes it easier for there to be a mis-communication unless both parties are able to see each other. It’s important to understand this point because internal business meetings are a crucial time to make sure the company is on track. For example, meetings can be a time:
Mediocre reviews towards the reboot of the Thief franchise can be credited to how the stealth genre has changed in the past decade. In a sense, stealth has been “perfected” in may different ways: Mark of the Ninja on one end of the spectrum turning sneaking into an arcade platform jumper while Splinter Cell, Deus Ex: HR and Hitman have carved their own niches into to action-stealth genre. And then there’s Dishonored, which in my opinion is Thief’s spiritual successor.

This review has been sitting on draft for quite some time. For one, I’m reviewing a camera that was released during the latter part of 2013 so by all means it isn’t new. Secondly, it’s hard to write this review without removing my fanboy cap. This is seriously the best point and shoot camera available in Sony’s stable of imaging devices. I’d even go as far as to say that this is the best point and shoot camera in its class, especially when you’re looking at devices in the PHP 30,000 range. So yeah, let’s fanboy away.

Given the past few weeks’ worth of news spreading throughout social media one of the more welcome ones would be scenes of friends posting photos of themselves over the backdrop of Wicked. Whether it be photos of the huge signboards with pen marks at the CCP lobby, the mechanical smoke-spewing dragon atop the stage, or the standing ovation for the cast after every show, it’s safe to say that Wicked is definitely a hit.
