Time pass and seasons change
But my love will stay the same
with only cupid to blame

Acobay

Friday, January 30, 2009

I found a very interesting networking site, its acobay.com, this isn't your typical networking site since it actually allows you to share your stuff but this is not a review site, It shows the stuff that you use everyday. Another point that I like is that this site offers registration without using your email address, pretty neat. Its a new way to experience social networking, and at the same time, a sharing site that is very useful when it comes to what you need.

Items are sorted by category making browsing for stuff easier, and with a lot of stuff to choose from you will certainly see the things you need, even things you still havn't thought about. The site also is very simple and easy to use, from registration to the actual posting of your stuff, it wont take a sweat.

The sharing site allows you to show your stuff and see people with the same stuff as well, this creates opportunities to meet people similar to yourself and learn from them as well. You can click here to see and experience the sharing site.


Syringe Pen

Wednesday, January 28, 2009


Now here is a nice way to write for those in the medical field. My sister is a nurse and she usually takes a medical syringe and places an ink tube inside to be a pen. Patients like this type of pen specially children. Now my sister found an item similar to what she does, and its kinda neat.


It comes in various colors I choose blue, which can be sinister looking, some can be red, green, yellow, white. The pen writes nicely with a good grip. you can also close the tip to be sure that no one gets hurt...

Sudoku

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

My girl friend just gave me a nice way to do something while waiting and its a Sudoku calendar, for some just a preview of Sudoku would be a turn off but the truth is, its not so bad. In my calender, aside from showing the day, it also offers a new Sudoku challenge everday. That's pretty neat, because I get to practice my brain cells a bit.


Even if there are numbers involved there is very little math, there is logic though. Just fill all the box from 1 to 9 horizontally and vertically without repeating. But to those who really cant catch up, worry not, coz this baby got all the answers at the back side of each page.


But why peep, when you can solve it, yeah...

Quotes from The curious case of Benjamin Button

Monday, January 26, 2009


I'm supposed to include these on my other post, but I think, these lines deserve a separate post. You can check my blog on The curious case of Benjamin Button movie here.

Now, here are some of the lines I find interesting on the movie:


"Along the way you bump into people who make a dent on your life. Some people get struck by lightning. Some are born to sit by a river. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim the English Channel. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people can dance." -Benjamin

"Your life is defined by its opportunities... even the ones you miss." -Benjamin

"It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you." -Benjamin

"For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again." -Benjamin

"Benjamin, we're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?" -Ms. Maple

"It's funny how sometimes the people we remember the least make the greatest impression on us." -Benjamin

"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could wear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go." -Capt. Mike

The curious case of Benjamin Button

I rarely enjoy movies which do not belong to action, fantasy or science-fiction, and this movie is one of them. I liked the story because I find it interesting and different, the movie showed audiences what its like to live your life backwards, being to old to do things and too young to know almost everything.


video

The story begins when a dying woman made a request to her daughter to read a diary she kept, and so begins the life of Benjamin. Benjamin had a rare illness, he would live his life backwards, born with signs of old age but as time passes by he body gets younger. Abandoned by his father while her mother died during labor he was left to a Queenie, a care giver.

Queenie loved him like his own son, and Benjamin loved him back, and as he seemed to be on the right place, being with old people and all, he experiences life as if he was old enough to understand yet in his heart he was just as young as his child neighbors.

Benjamin met Daisy from her grandmother at the home care, and as time goes by they went their separate lives. Benjamin now a sailor who soon enters World War II on a tug boat and Daisy who became a ballerina, but soon had an accident. Both experienced a lot of new things, specially Benjamin, time went on and despite their misunderstandings they soon lived together bearing a child. Benjamin realized Daisy could not raise both of them, now that he is getting much younger and decides to leave them. Daisy found a suitable father, and Benjamin starts to be a child in form, but looses memory. Daisy now old,took care of young Benjamin,until he looked like he was just a new born. Soon Benjamin looked at Daisy for the last time then slowly closed his eyes and died.

Pretty tragic, but very deep, I liked the story, the plot, the way it was directed, and the characters as well,I think this movie should be a classic.

Aplaya : Laguna's Bay Walk

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Ever since I moved to Laguna, I got very little time exploring what this wonderful province has to offer. I must admit that I'm not that excited but it did made me curious when my mom said, why don't we go to Aplaya, Laguna's version of baywalk. The Christmas season had just passed and we didn't expect to see much. But when I got there the place wasn't that bad at all.


The place reminded me on how vast Laguna lake was, we could see I think Rizal province, the mountains around the lake, I even thought I saw the tower at tagaytay, Los BaƱos was also in sight.

The place wasn't in its best place to be honest,a lot of lake debris was all around, there were still a couple of vendors. It was really cold during that day and very very windy, and the best way to enjoy it is a pack of chicharon with vinegar....plus the coffee of course.

The wind was so strong that it created waves that could reach the break waters and we could not go near the water since we didn't bring extra clothes.


I was amazed to see a small island,they said it was a resort and you would need to take a ferry to get there, i'll bet its pretty expensive. I wished I brought a jacket that day its freakin' cold and wet,but still it isn't everyday you experience that cold weather here in the Philippines so better enjoy it.

After being wet, we decided to make a sideline to our national hero's house in Calamba, we've been here countless times, but we still came back, why?... the entrance is free...hehehehe

A crucial decision for the future

Saturday, January 3, 2009

I believe there will always come a time (metaphorically speaking) when a man has to decide on what foundations his house would be built, I just never realized how close or early it would be for me to make such a decision. At my present age, a lot of opportunities still lurks in the corners of the corporate and industrial world but they seem elusive even though at times I feel I can clearly and with all certainty can grab that torch with both hands.

A decision needs to be made, will my only reason for happiness beyond the cradle be left in exchange for uncertainty but with an increased number of torches ready for the picking? A question that might haunt me for years, months, even days to come. Happiness, man's ultimate goal, what decision would bring me to this goal, will it be worth it, or just like the great generals of the past, it would only take a good strategy to win not just the battle but the war for Happiness.

Nobody really can understand me better than myself, does that mean no one can possibly make a better decision than myself? Or would it be better to hear an outside voice, a voice that is impartial and innocent to my clouded thoughts.

Better to think of the present than the future, the only problem is, the future in time will be your present.

Samsung SC-MX10 Digital Camcoder


It's so nice to have a new gadget around and this little critter is just perfect for gadget lovers and even for those who just want to keep a record of the good ol' holidays. This device maybe small but packs a couple of nice features.

aside from the camcoder itself the package includes battery charger, battery (not shown), cleaning cloth (not shown), software installer via cd (not shown) usb cable, usb to video-audio jack and pouch bag.

This small device is pretty nice since it provides both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios - 4:3 and 16:9 which ensures that recorded media can be played on wide-format HDTV screen and olderTV sets. It also has a 34x optical/1200x digitalzoom and 680,000 pixel CCD with electronic image stabilization providing clear pictures with matching 2.7 LCD display for your recording pleasure.

The Camera records all your precious moments using a standard SD or MMC card, I got a free 512 MB SD card but you can also use memory cards with higher memory say 8GB perhaps, the 512 MB gives me around 15 minutes of recording time, so 8GB would probably give you an estimated 4 hours of recording time the only catch is that according to its manual the battery can only give you two hours of juice, so i suggest you plug it if you consider recording higher than 4GB.


To wrap things up here's my personal experience: The device is small cute and easy to carry, perfect for those who is always on the go, for two hours or less that is, since this baby can only give you roughly two hours of recording time, otherwise you'll need to plug it. The software wasn't that great since it just like your standard movie maker nothing too special. The quality of the recorded video is nice, and recording on a memory card is very convenient since I can swap out fresh card if my memory runs out. I hate the fact that it doesn't have a viewing lens, to save battery life, since you'll be recording on your LCD all the time. All in all, its a great device but Samsung could have done better...
