[EVENT + Video of the Day] Digital Lifestyle Expo

I can’t think of one day that I wouldn’t even tinker with my phone. For me, this mobile and digital lifestyle has given me access to information, not to mention a job! This digital revolution has turned everyone into a digital humankind, tinkering with gadgets one callous thumb at a time (now that I’ve thought of it, it sounds scary haha)

The habit is – Twitter, email, Viber, and then check some Yummly for dinner or if I’m tired or I just want to go out — Zomato it is. Of course, Spotify all day and maybe Flipboard for the latest or Pocket for some easy reads. The list doesn’t end there as I have over 50 apps on my phone! You see, it’s like 50% of my life is now app-and-phone-dependent (no kidding).

And it just never ends.

So if you’re like me who lives the digital life (you know you do), then let’s go to the Digital Lifestyle Expo at the Mega Fashion Hall (omg I live so near!) Lots of emerging technologies – gadgets, apps, and a whole lot more. Find more details after the jump!

In times of emergency

weather-com-ph

Earlier this day, we heard of the news that a new low pressure area is near the Philippines. It’s like the 3rd one (I’m not keeping tabs) to hit the country in one month. And even if the news tells that it’s just Habagat — we all know what it did the last time it hit us. Climate change is real and all we can do is to prepare for the worst.

I was just at El Nido just after Glenda and pre-Henry when I experienced first hand how coastal areas are in these times of big ass tandem of waves and winds. I can’t help but to worry if the place I was staying at will be torn apart. Everything just went wild! So be prepared — and it starts with having these numbers at hand. Store them on your phones, laptops, and even on a notebook. You just don’t know when your gadgets will die on you.

TANDAAN …and remember these, too!

Let’s all be prepared for the storms ahead!

Spotify x Globe

I’ve been crazy gaga over Spotify the last few months! It has kept me company, productive, and most of all up-to-date with my favorite artists and up and coming acts. It has all the playlists I can ever think of — from working, walking, or even lull time music. No wonder, I subscribed to premium — which lets you download music on your Spotify so you can play it offline. That’s just so convenient!

Here’s a sample of what I’m currently loving:

Blog feels

I remembered when I first ventured out of Multiply and found a new space in the web five years ago. I can also remember that I was searching for something easy on the eyes and noob-friendly. WordPress seemed so clean and streamlined and I had no qualms with anything. I’m difficult to please then, I swear. But I was really satisfied with my little space in the internet.

Blogging was a new thing here in the Philippines then, or more appropriately – just gaining traction. I had no idea what to post or blab about, all I know is that I just needed an outlet – for minor, major life things, and sometimes what I am obsessed about. Because of my blog, I met a lot of people – friends and foes alike. Blogging suddenly became something I breathe as time came by. It became my personal AND public space where I express my thoughts and people read and sometimes comment. I learned a lot as well, as reading other blogs is something worthwhile to do when you know where to find the good ones. It was a community in this interesting space called the internet.

One of the entities I want to thank is WordPress! No bull, really. I couldn’t find any other platform that I’d possibly be qualm-free. I believe that WordPress is the best out there. And when I heard from our folks at Globe that the WordPress father is here, I hated that I work the night shift and couldn’t come (huhuhu.) Oh but they sent this picture of Matt Mullenweg and who ever knew he’s kinda hot?

Matt Mullenweg visits PH

Seriously though! I would’ve loved to meet Matt and have a chat. I’d like to ask him how does he feel that he was able to build a community of netizens globally – isn’t that quite a feat? Not only that he helped build a community – he launched many careers as some of us (ehem) here have their career entirely grounded online. It was such a bummer I couldn’t come and say hi.

I hope I see you somewhere else, Mr. Mullenweg!

#GlobeDigitalNatives

We are living in a digital generation. You and me are digital natives. We breathe digital – everywhere we go.

But as the offline, the online space can be a dangerous place too. How do we keep it safe for them?

The Globe Store in Boracay

This for y’all who crave for a summer adventure this holy week!

Globe Telecom is launching The 2014 Globe Adventure in Boracay Island, an exciting race-like activity open to all on April 17-20, 2014 from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM, where participants can secure stamps from finishing tasks in each of the stations around the island and even take home Globe freebies upon completion of the activities.

Bike to the Cordillera and back!

Cordi launch

The Cordillera mountain is a majestic range of nature in Northern Luzon and is one of the most admired sceneries in all of the Philippines. It is home to the rice terraces – a man-made wonder dating back at least a thousand years ago, serving as evidence as to how engineering advanced in the tribal days. Truly the eighth wonder of the world! (Jeez, I need to go there!)

It is also home to a couple of the interesting tribal cultures here in the Philippines! The Ifugao has made the mountains their residence and home, their workplace. Their everything! It is no wonder why a lot of organizations are seeking (one of them is UNESCO, with Batad village being a UNESCO heritage site) to protect the mountain range, and the culture that comes with it.

So one thing to figure out for me though — need to learn how to bike! Any volunteers to teach me? Heh.
