Macro shot I took with a Prosumer level Canon Powershot Pro1: Macro shot I took with a consumer (point and shoot) Olympus D 540 Zoom: The difference is that the former costs about P35,000.00 more. Some people are willing to pay that much more to deliver great photos. If I had the money, then why … Continue reading points of view
One thing about being with the media is that it’s very hard to keep secrets. The past several weeks has been very hard for me to keep my mouth shut and only a few industry leaders know about a new product that will be launched come January of 2006 (hopefully!). This product has been very … Continue reading the talk of the _____ industry
Google was playing sleight of mind a while ago. But my hands were faster. I took a screenshot: Only a few days up and I have a Page Rank of 6. I refreshed the page and it was gone. It’s that green bar on the lower right, supposed to say 6/10 when you highlight it. … Continue reading a PR of 6
It’s unbelievable how much of a push the Philippines got a few hours ago. We just launched what will be known as the Philippine podcasting network. A total of 25 local podcasts will be uploaded into the iTunes Music Store in the next few days. The venue was fitting too – Red Box in Greenbelt … Continue reading the m|PH podcast
After six days of waiting, Google Analytics is finally showing some signs of life on my blog. Interesting results from the executive summary. Seems like apart from direct links as well as the link from my old blog, the top referrer to A Bugged Life is from Denise’s blog. Hey Den, you should start charging … Continue reading 144 hours later, it’s alive!!
Here’s a picture walkthrough of our Monday at HIP. Take the stairs (or the elevator) to the third floor and once up the floor’s lobby, take the small door on the left. And you’re greeted with an old pair of stairs that looks like something straight from a Neil Gaiman fantasy novel. Except that you’re … Continue reading Monday in pictures
What this generation needs is someone they can look up to. Someone who embodies the concepts of justice, mercy, and service. So it’s time to roll down the red cape once again. SUPERMAN, Coming 2006. Watch the teaser here.
It’s been five days since I started a new character in World of Warcraft. I decided to make a Mage because I’ve seen how useful they can be in instances. I decided to be Alliance because I wanted to see what it was like on the “other side.” I also rolled female because … well … Continue reading what it feels like for a girl
Dropped by Tiendesitas near Valle 5 more out of curiosity than the willingness to buy stuff. But I ended up buying the highly recommended In Diet supplement for Hondo. I got it for a discounted P600.00. Thank you Adel for recommending this for the longest time. Tiendesitas is the perfect Sunday shopping getaway. It’s the … Continue reading Tiendesitas without pics
The scary thing about not being in the Cebu ad congress is that your face is on an AVP that’s supposed to be viewed by the most influential corporations in the country. Those of us back at the office are curious as to how HIP was received. When you’re the magazine arm of the country’s … Continue reading the HIP video
I just installed Google Analytics onto A Bugged Life. It only started tracking stats after 7 hours. And now its compiling stats, which will take another 12 hours. Not bad actually, considering what others have… to… say. Of course I could be wrong about the 19 hour wait. So I’ll just count the chickens later. … Continue reading Google Analytics
What a week! And its only Wednesday. I missed out on two trips this week – the first for Australia for Nokia and the second for Singapore for the WCG 2005. And thus I’ve learned my lesson (1) to renew my passport when it expires and (2) renew my passport when it expires. Almost forgot, … Continue reading Alternatives to flying
It’s out! This is a very memorable issue for most of us at HIP. First of all, we’ve racked our brains deciding on what color the cover would take and we just decided to go psychidelic (sp?) because of the Austin Powers-esque retro theme. Second, it is the first issue of m|PH under the new … Continue reading m|PH October-November is out!

DO send me a message if you’re having problems viewing the site and tell me what browser you’re using so I can adjust. … Continue reading Site browser problems?
My family had undergone a dramatic change when this little boy came under our roof almost three months ago. The heavy mood that draped the house turned over almost immediately, painting a brighter picture of what it was like when I was 6. We were a dog family – when we could afford to maintain … Continue reading The dog that changed my family
