I have never been so enthralled to sit among scientists from CERN. Likewise I have never seen Powerpoint slides that discussed matters of importance, turning all other worldly man-made events into trivial things. The Powerpoint presentation I witnessed was showing the history of the universe, the concept of the time-space continuum, and folding space. It … Continue reading The Best Press Conference I Have Ever Attended
Above, another video I made of my latest underwater sojourn. We were extremely lucky as we saw so many things: several octopus, white and black tip sharks, eels, flamboyant cuttlefish, crabs, a puffed up blowfish and lots of nudibranchs.

The “view” of Vue … Continue reading Vue Bar: Displacing Makati into the South

Based on studies, Globe claims to be the fastest but everyone else says it isn’t so. SMART fluctuates as well. SUN is the “fastest” and also the “slowest.” … Continue reading Speedtests should not be the measure of mobile broadband

Earlier, I met up with Karlo for a business meeting in Bonifacio High Street. I wasn’t there when the explosion echoed, but from what my cousin tells me, it was blaring. They saw the body of the poor soul being moved out of the car. I had my camera yet I thought twice if I … Continue reading Pray for his soul
Last week, Scrivs and the gang were shooting ideas for our year end series for ForeverGeek. I think it was Franky who suggested we do a “10 Years of…” series. So, in the advent of the pending apocalypse, I wrote a four part series titled “A Decade of Zombies.” This series doesn’t aim to list … Continue reading A Decade of Zombies in Four Parts
