A contest of epic proportions. The geekiest bags and the geekiest blog. Crumpler and A Bugged Life. Next week. Stay tuned.
Photo: Taking Marlon Rivera “off the hook” in post-event cocktails I do my best to try something new every year, even if it’s just a one-off or a thing that eventually turns into a hobby. Well, I’d say this year I found myself in another comfortable position wearing the hat of an events host. The … Continue reading So I hosted two events for Samsung in Manila and Cebu. T’was loads of fun.
It really seemed like the contest was rigged for Old Spice Guy to pull a fast one over Fabio.

Thanks to Joanne Ignacio of WWF Philippines for sending me the raw file on Facebook. Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu, Batangas is one of the areas heavily tended by WWF Philippines for conservation projects.

Dear readers, I leave tomorrow night for Barcelona, Spain to attend Mobile World Congress 2011. For the unfamiliar and non-geeks, let’s just say that if the fashion industry has Fashion Week, us nerds have Mobile World Congress (formerly known as GSM Conference). In the same way that fashion week is a gathering of designers and … Continue reading Off to Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2011

My idea on how to boost tourism

I thought long and hard to see how I could celebrate this milestone and decided that there are really … Continue reading And now, a special message from the author of this blog
