A little infomercial from this blog’s sponsor, multi-awarded 2012 Best Telco of the year Globe Telecom, on how are calls mad, connected, and eventually ended. I find it really thoughtful of Globe to educate us on how they do their job. Click that play button and inform yourself more about the one thing you most probably can’t live without.
Remember what they always say, and apparently their Twitter account too — Always enjoy Globe!
Public speaking has never been one of my strengths. I’ve always mumbled and stuttered in front of a group. But that doesn’t mean I would pass up the opportunity to inspire a group of students. Blogging has done a lot for me, all the more I want to share to these kids how it really helps one’s career
I was invited by a class to talk about social media. This is my second time already, and though I was still the same dorky guy with a mic, and feeling completely nonsense, I really am thankful for the chance to meet and inspire these hopefuls from a small college in Pampanga.
I see myself in these young hopefuls — I was in my senior year in college when I started blogging, and quite frankly I wasn’t happy with my course so I resorted to distract myself every once in a while to keep me sane. This eventually proved to me the power of a blog. I got to know a lot of people, some became good friends, and some became good bosses and mentors. And it does come with perks! Lots of them. It kept me sane and it gave me a job — good enough reason to share what blogging can do to your career.
I really hope my inability to speak effectively in public didn’t hinder these students to learn from me! I hope they get me again though! I’d love to see them again.
And maybe, I’ll take a John Robert Powers class to kill this stage fright. Haha!

I’m starting this new series about my not-so-recent trip to Singapore for Laneway Festival! It’s the first time I went here not on any business, but to enjoy the music festival and all the city-state can offer me!
Watch out for more posts! I’ll be featuring Matchbox, that beautiful, pretty, quaint, *insert more fancy adjectives here* hostel I stayed at; a lil’ bit about Laneway Festival and my favorite band who I actually heard play — Of Monsters and Men; my mini temple-run, and the little sidetrips along the way!
Keep tuned in! Excited to share all of these. And to actually remember all my experiences is an experience in itself 🙂
Wow, it feels surreal to make a first post on a new blog. It’s like opening the first page of a book, or rather taking the first bite of an 11-course or maybe 15-course meal. Okay, that made me hungry.
Anyway, I’m just glad I finally got to launch this new platform I’ve been tweaking. I won’t be discussing about this blog, as you may read it from my About pages. Read them please please please.
Hahaha, okay I’m losing focus here.
So here goes. Welcome to my new blog! I hope you come back for more of my little mis/adventures in and out of the crazy city we will call Manila. I am based here, but gawd, all I think of is going away and discovering the world. Hopefully, I get to share to you all of these in the coming days, months, and I really hope – years! *insert cross fingers here*
So I hope you keep tuned in! I’ve prepared quite a number of series to keep you peeled, page after page. Who knows what I will be blogging about next, eh?
After all, it’s anything actually 🙂
