New Gadget

When Kindle came out, I was extremely ecstatic. I have never been so excited about a product like this before. Especially for someone who likes to read a lot. When Apple came out with an iPad, all hell broke loose. It’s just too sexy and yummy of a gadget.

All the books and maybe our daily newspaper all handy at any time of the day and accessible through the iPad.
I found an iPad in Amazon website. I hope someone snatch this little baby really soon. Here’s to wishful thinking that it’s going to be me.

OutliersBy Malcolm Gladwell

“Success follows a predictable course. It is not the brightest who succeed. Nor is success simply the sum of the decisions and efforts we make on our own behalf. It is, rather, a gift.”

“Outliers are those who have been given opportunities- and who have had the strength and presence of mind to seize them, to escape the constraints of their cultural legacy.” [Read more…]

Got Connected At Mr. Coffee

Tried out a new place. I know a friend suggested this place. I find the foods on the menu to be expensive. I can do without the huge slices of sandwich (I ordered tuna sandwich and, surprisingly very small, iced coffee). I was told have to spend Php150 to use their wifi service. The connection is good enough and the place is not as crowded. You can charge your laptop for free. There’s couches and tables. You can eat outside the cafe if you want. I was just confused why there is a photo copy/printer machine inside. I guess some customer’s come here and want to have some documents printed. They are open from 8:00 AM – 2:00 AM the next day. Mr. Coffee at Mango. [Read more…]


I was at the gym all week and one of the female member who was friendly talked to me. She started out asking if I’m from Cebu. I was wearing a t-shirt with my company’s name printed. The question startled me. It was not the first time I was asked if I am from Cebu. I don’t know how to answer the question. But I did and I replied,” No.” and smiled at her. She then asked some more if I am a guest of the hotel. I again said no and added” I just work here.” The last question she asked was how much the rate is in the gym per month with and without a trainer. I only know the monthly rate and I gave her the information. She gave me a confused look and smiled at me. That was the end of the conversation.
On her first question. I never really know how to answer every time someone asked if I am from Cebu. Does it show in my face that I am not from around here? Okay, maybe in the way I talk and the words I use. But we did not really talk before that nor even heard me talk to anyone in the gym. I have been in Cebu for 5 years and yet I ask,” Does that make me a Cebuana?” This question always make me feel displaced like I am not from around here. I have always been proud that I am from Mindanao and from Iligan City. Regardless of what people might think. That must be also why I don’t know how to answer the question. Now it would be different if I would be joining Miss Cebu. LOL. Will never happen.
Moving on to my response on her second question. After much deliberation on how I interpret her confused look, I thought she should be. I don’t know how much the membership cost with a personal trainer. My response after all was that “I work here.” Me, so tiny and standing 5″1″ and in the most unfit body of someone who works here “the gym”. She might think I work in the back room office cleaning stuff. LOL! Ironic that I was wearing my company’s t-shirt. LOL!

The Week So Far

Bo’s Coffee Club Ramos

Every time I come here I get very disappointed. The connection here is sooooo bad! I don’t even know why I come here. There are days when I think all other coffee-wifi places I go too seems so far away or may be too filled up and noisy that I think about coming here. Every time I come, I get so irritated, frustrated and annoyed. It’s these kinds of feelings that always ruin my day. I don’t know why I never learn. Not even the smiles of the so-called cute barita’s don’t cut it. Because, think about it. The place is called “Bo’s Coffee Club”. And they can’t afford a good connection and router? I don’t think they realize. Their pinoy customer’s only come here to use their wifi service and a place for group study for students. It’s only their foreign customers that enjoy the coffee here. I don’t want to spend my money here knowing that the connection is soo bad. Seriously! I am paying for P105.00 for a Cafe Latte that’s not even worth it.
