Personal Finance on the Web

Managing my finances or investing in stocks are things that I haven't had the time or guts to delve into. Now that I think about it, now might be a good time for me to explore that idea. It's been well, years, since I seriously touched a calculator. ...

Business Card for the Food Enthusiast in Me

This afternoon, I was thinking of a cool way to compose a business card suited for the up and coming Davao Food Appreciation Tour. How do I connect it to food without looking desperate? Add some "bite" to it, that's what! With some folder cardboard stock, a ...

The Joys of Dial-Up

It's probably karma. The Wifi pirate that I am, it's inevitable that this should happen. Once again, my ever-unreliable PLDT MyDSL decided not to cooperate anymore. My whole neighborhood's affected, and PLDT doesn't know when it'll be back up. This happened two days ago too.

Bryanboy, Tsk tsk tsk.

I'm not a practicing Catholic. I don't go to church except when I'm forced to or when it's Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. So really, there's no place for me to give a righteous reaction to the current media/Internet circus surrounding Bryanboy. He's getting exactly what ...

Manila Update

Yep, I'm in Manila again. I wrote about WiFi here not being free in most places here and that is still the case. However, just like back in Davao City, I am blogging through someone else's WiFi. Thanks, whoever you are. Yes, you can call me ...
