And now for something lighter. When Gail asked me for help on how to encourage her husband to post more, I could not resist but give my “no post no love” business model for blogging. To Marc, hey bro, dude, really sorry about this. But your wife really asked for a creative way on how … Continue reading Never ask a blogger to be a love consultant
There have been two things that I’ve found to be recently disturbing. The first was the seeming misinterpretation of my post about PWIT and Pinoy Tech Blog – as if there really was some controversy going on. My intent was to help promote PWIT as the cast and crew involves people whom I have worked … Continue reading When blog posts get counterproductive
Have you ever stumbled upon a website that you thought should win something? It never really crosses your mind at first – in the same way how you glance upon a hottie walking down the opposite side of the road. I mean, your first reaction wouldn’t be “hey I bet that lady could win a … Continue reading And the nominees are …
Back in high school, our physics teacher taught us that falling from a certain height, anything can be used as a deadly weapon. Such was the case with the falling cow that was thought to be a military weapon back in the old days – legend says that a cow had been airlifted to be … Continue reading The Art of Falling
Almost three years ago I had my first encounter with a Crumpler Bag. It was called the McBain’s Lovechild – a slightly smaller version of McBain, which fit my 12 inch iBook like a charm. Ever since then the Crumpler brand has had a cult following – whose majority of members were obviously from that … Continue reading The Crumpler Store: Now Open for (Geeky) Business!
Very similar to “if you only had one more day to live, what would you do with it?” So kids, what would it be? If you knew that you only had one day to live, would you even bother posting one last entry onto your blog? When we refer to “blog” I’d assume this would … Continue reading If you only had one more blog post before you died…?
I learned something new yesterday, having had time to drop by the Inquirer.net office for a quick meeting. To reference Inquirer.net‘s EIC, he always wanted a quotable quote about how bloggers can learn something from media folk. I don’t remember the exact wording but it goes something like: Bloggers can learn a lot from news … Continue reading Lessons from JV Rufino on Blogging
We walked and walked and walked and walked. tirelessly we trudged along what was the distance from Ayala Avenue to Guadalupe taking photos and dancing to the rhythm of each group of presentors. This was the first time I’ve ever done guerilla shooting. Pretending we were media and crossing the roads, trying to catch those … Continue reading Sinulog 2007 Pictures
Well not really. Considering it was a blogger party so obviously there was just too much booze, sex and several acts of frivolities going round. Just kidding. The nature of a party for bloggers means that everyone blogs about it after, so no secrets here, really! You can view the pictures I took here. It … Continue reading What Happened at the Blog Party 2007 Stays at the Blog Party 2007
Over at the blog parteeh, b5media CEO Jeremy Wright says hello. b5media is one of the bigger sponsors for the event having shelled out an equivalent of P12,500.00 for goodies. If your browser refreshed and you’re seeing this post, then you probably missed the parteh!
You know I would really like to thank all my photographer friends who have been encouraging me to shoot more and more – and thus invest a little bit more into this hobby. To mind come friends like Elber, Anton, Jed and Markku. And so yesterday I got myself a Canon Speedlite 580EX from Mayer … Continue reading Just Bought: Canon Speedlite 580EX
Shooting for a food and beverage magazine has its perks. Aside from being able to binge after (hurriedly) shooting food, you get to meet a lot of interesting foodies and chefs who can teach you a lot about the F&B industry. So with slight hesitation to stray from my blog’s main niche (although I did … Continue reading How to Make House Blend Iced Tea
This may come as a surprise for most of you considering that the Blog Parteeh is already tomorrow. A recent turn of events has led me to take a temporary blog leave for an indefinite period of time. These series of events has left me with little choice but to heed other priorities that may … Continue reading On Indefinite Blog Leave
One of the biggest impediments to deal with when coming back from a vacation is the piled up paperwork. In the old days, this was usually piled onto your desk’s “in tray” but because of the digital revolution, everything – all 300+ emails are now piled into my email server. And it sucks too because … Continue reading When Paperwork Gets Piled Up
One of the best perks about the publishing industry is when you’re sent off to cover items that your magazine features. It just so happens that I’m shooting for a food magazine tomorrow till Wednesday or Thursday – and this usually means a gastronomic delight after every shoot! If you’re doing the a magazine on … Continue reading Food and Beverage Destination: Pampanga, Philippines
