Some things you just discover while you’re relaxing, coasting along one of Manila’s busy highways.
Make no mistake: It is appreciated that Pasig City has introduced “pop-up” bike lanes along Ortigas Avenue. However, you can’t help but wonder why it would sometimes look like this:
I can only shake my head in disbelief while pedaling home.
As part of my New Year “Green Goals“, I have recently started looking at composting at home last January. I must admit, I had to do a lot of reading and researching because I have never done this before. Continue reading
Since November, I had gotten two Cherry Mobile Ace (powered by Firefox OS) devices for me and my mom at home. Basically, the two Aces function as my secondary phone and as our landline phone unit at home. Being a developer though, I was also interested in using my Ace to test against HTML5 apps that I’ve made.
Prior to the Ace, I already had a ZTE Open Firefox OS device back in 2013. This Ace is a new device, and courtesy of Sir Bob Reyes of Mozilla Philippines, I was able to know how to connect to the Ace on my PC. Continue reading

Lagpas ka man sa aking hawak
Hanggang tanaw lang ng aking mga mata
