Keep Calm...

Not another one of those silly "Keep calm" posters!!! Sorry guys, I just can't pass up on these two posters. On any given day, I am sure I will find at least one instance either applies. Maybe even both at the same time. After all, Wonder Woman does get hungry, I am sure. Have an awesome weekend, and tell them to shove it if they keep stressing you out by telling you to keep calm!

Is Metrodeal Selling Fake Longchamp Bags?

[UPDATE: November 26, 2013] I have been informed by Google that Metrodeal is going to take matters to court because of this post being a copy and paste of a case study they had in June 2012. I have republished this post because I can say with 100% certitude that this post is all mine and was written in May 2013 after I had bought a Longchamp Le Pliage bag from Metrodeal. I'll be updating this post as things progress. [UPDATE] This post has been taken down due to a DMCA request, the exact nature of which is yet unknown. I have filed a counter complaint, with the hopes that I will be able to reinstate the original content as I am 100% sure that it is all my creation, with no copyright infringement having been made. Please bear with me as I wait for Google to sort things out. In the meantime, comments and feedback are still welcome![UPDATE] ===== Some women have this thing for shoes. While I don't get that - give me my trusty Ipanemas any day - I do understand the concept

Of Nags and Hard Hats

I'm not a nag, really. I'm more of a hands off person, which can be good most of the time, but lately, I am learning that sometimes, you have to take on the qualities of a nag. (This is not to say that I don't have control freak tendencies; it's just that I don't always act on my thoughts.) Anyhow, in several aspects of my life, I am learning a lot of things, some of them in a not-so-easy way. I don't want to be a nag. I don't want to keep telling people whom I see as equals what to do, when to do it. I don't want to feel like I have to have a stash of construction hard hats just so I can feel safe - I don't know if you know, but nags are prone to things being thrown at them. Seriously, though, I am also learning - on the job, so to speak - how to approach things from many angles. Often at the same time. Is that even possible? It looks like it. I either have to put on that hard hat - maybe literally and figuratively, depending on the specifi

Boho Sarapsody Bistro - For a Laid Back Night Out

I used to be a going out person, although I never really thought of myself that way. Thanks to old blog posts and Facebook status updates and photos, it seems that I had (have?) that outgoing side. No doubt I still like going out now and then, but it's more about a relaxing, quiet evening than a rowdy, drunken one. I have to admit that the no alcohol part is more health-enforced than voluntary, but all's good. So last night, I went to this "new" place called Boho Sarapsody Bar. It's on Ermin Garcia St. in Cubao - a place I had never heard of before.

How to Be Alone

In many societies, being alone is looked down upon, and the person who is alone is sometimes pitied. It is thus understandable why there are people who are averse to being alone. Then there are those who seek solitude amidst the crowds. Some crave it simply because that's how they are. Others run to it because of circumstances that make aloneness preferable to the alternatives. Wherever you stand in that wide spectrum of aloneness-companionship, this video by film maker Andrea Dorfman and poet/singer/songwriter Tanya Davis might be what you need to help you embrace that complex yet simple thing called aloneness. A commenter on the YouTube video wrote, 'We are all alone, but living with people make us forget that. We come to this world alone and so will we die. Never pursue people to fill the emptiness, but fill it from inside. You are never really alone if you find yourself!' Lovely, although I prefer to think that it's more a matter of creating yourself than f
