Been writing elsewhere…

July 22nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, well, the short answer is I’ve been writing at Filipinovoices.com: Reciprocity My wife, a travel agent, got fuming mad at a “friend” last weekend.

I went to the Coke event with a tripod, not a digicam

June 29th, 2008 · 13 Comments

I had fun at last Friday’s Buhay Coke ng Blogger’s event at Taste Asia in SM Mall of Asia. It was too bad that I wasn’t able to bring a digicam to the event. Ironically, I was lugging a tripod I had bought earlier that night. I had fun hanging out with Tess, her friend […]

May 1st, 2008 · 3 Comments

Cross-posted from .NET @ Kape ni LaTtEX When Microsoft came up with its Heroes Happen {Here} campaign as part of Launch {2008}, I found the campaign name cheesy. “Hero” is something you reserve for people who do truly great things, and hardly fits into the portrait of a software developer — someone like me.
