Taken from one of my favorite Peter Jackson movies, Dead / Alive (1992). If you watched King Kong, he makes a number of references to this B horror flick.
MacBooks are getting cheaper and cheaper. This is the most affordable MacBook in recent history. Although I’m a big fan of the aluminum finish, I figure that Apple really needed to distinguish the MacBook line with the Pro series as they were both starting to look alike. So the 13 inch MacBook is back to … Continue reading New MacBooks at PHP 54,990
Photo merging on Windows 7 is too easy!
So my Tuesday was particularly interesting. Gabe Mercado (@gabemercado) called the day previous inviting me to sample a new Magsaysay Group product offering for Tantin, our common friend from PhilMUG. Corregidor is an underrated wonder, being stereotyped as an “old” tourist spot that brings back the memories of MacArthur’s folly. I remember experiencing the gun … Continue reading Corregidor, The Remake
Jan: Everybody gear up! Wowie: Wait lang, let me set my playlist. My dive buddy Wowie brought an H2O Audio casing for his iPod to our latest weekend dive in Puerto Galera.

I Do or I Die!

It’s been a while since I’ve done an audiobook recommendation. I recently purchased The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi, which was released last month. The book is read by Jonathan Davis, and author Paolo Bacigalupi. Paperback costs USD $25 but with an audio subscription you can get it for USD $10.00. Anderson Lake is a … Continue reading Audiobook Recommendation: The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
I’ve been drooling over the delight of making my own espresso for more than 8 months. Today I gave in. This buy, thought seemingly impulse, was well calculated. Am I making sense? Must be the caffeine. P.S. Lori — I found my beans. Unless I can get more of that Benguet coffee, I’ve stuck with … Continue reading My First Pump Espresso Machine: Krups XP 4050
Perhaps the only “bad” thing I can say about this dive computer is it’s apparent awkwardness if worn casually. But that’s the price of P20,000.00 for an Aladin Tec 2G, acquired several weeks ago. This purchase completes my dive gear. It also saves lives.
