UPDATE: For those of you who have read my dad’s column on the Ashitaba Leaf, you can easily propagate the shrub ocne you procure it from them.

It’s a beautiful day! Go out, have a delicious meal and walk your dog! 🙂

During the holidays I had wanted to pick up a copy of Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers on Audible after a tease read from Fully Booked, High Street. I swear, I can go all out with bookstores, having finished books while waiting for people. As it turned out, a good friend from high school read my mind … Continue reading Audible Recommendation: A Short History of Nearly Everything
So so geeky! Thus, this restaurant deserves a post. 😀 There’s also a Plurk thread discussing reactions. ——- So Anton Diaz asked me out on a date. Don’t worry — it wasn’t a HOT date. It was actually pretty cold. More than 100 degrees below zero cold. We were both a little early for a … Continue reading Nitrogen Ice Cream at Zenses
At 3% alcohol, the P60.00 per scoop ice cream is the only one of its kind that comes with a warning label: 18 years and above only. I wrote about Elfav a couple of days ago, being happy that we finally have a decent malt shop in the south. Elfav is short for El Favorito, … Continue reading Believe it or not: BEER Ice Cream from Elfav (!!!)
EDIT: There is a discussion on my PLURK page where Fritz discusses the LED quality and lifespan. Check it out! Though it looks like a cellphone, it certainly isn’t one. The 3M Micro Professional Projector (MPro 110) is by far the smallest handheld LED projector I’ve ever encountered, even smaller than Toshiba’s FF1 Ultralight, which … Continue reading Every mobile warrior’s dream: 3M Micro Professional Projector at P24,000
When you stare down at the precipice of uncertainty, it sometimes means that you’re looking from the wrong direction. And it is the same with predictions and musings of every writer that “this year will be this..” or “this year won’t be more of that from last year…” But I’ve noticed though — and thank … Continue reading Ah, The Good Times.
Yeah. Even if I knew, from the back of my mind that Windows 7 will NOT install under CrossOver (CrossOver installs apps, not OS’s!), it was still worth a try. I guess I must do this the hard way. This afternoon, a rediscovered friend by the name of Johnny Benitez gave me a short run … Continue reading Windows 7 demo over Starbucks
Happy Tuesday everyone! This is another speed talking video series. Thanks to Abby for sending the link in the comments section!
Hi folks. You probably read my first hands on with the Nokia 5800 last year. My first impressions still are basically the same, now that I finally have the unit with me and I’d like to supplemement that review with this post. I’ve been pondering how to go about reviewing this phone and opted out … Continue reading Nokia 5800 XpressMusic as a touch screen device
Addition: Just found out from the owner that “Elfav” is the flagship store of the El Favorito brand of local ice cream. Apart from Yakult, they also have Wasabi, Turrones, Fruit Cake (!!!) flavored ice cream. One of the reasons why I’m not a food blogger in the professional sense is because I retreat to … Continue reading Elfav serves Yakult Ice Cream
So the secret is out: It is apparent that nagging moms do need to graduate from some sort of training to express themselves, and this medium is called “Improvised Speed Talking.” The geek in me shall try running the video side by side a voice to text translation app. But I’m already postulating it won’t … Continue reading Gazelle Canlas and Abby Asistio do Speed Talking
And here’s a short black and white silent film directed by Thomas Tan, whom I’ve known since we were kids in PAREF Southridge. The film was shot with zero budget, as a promotional vid for Elfsar Comics. References to Supergirl and Batman in this short thriller. On a side note, I love working with people … Continue reading Supergirl of My Dreams by Thomas Tan
