The new iPhone came out last month. With that, of course, came excited Apple cult followers, Apple bashers, wanna be tech analysts, social climbers who started scraping the bottom of their bank accounts, and indifferent people who are already happy with their mid-range Samsung or the low-end but super durable Nokia.

If you kinda love it and you feel like you want to jump on the bandwagon, let me remind you, the price tag that came with this “it” phone is a hefty one for the regular working Filipino. Here are the numbers: P33,600 for the 16GB, P38,780 for the 64GB and P43,950 for the 128GB iPhone 6. Pretty hefty, huh? Continue reading »

Davao Events: Young Davao Writers Host Spoken Word Poetry Event


There is no doubt that a diverse art culture is thriving in this lively city. Davao is home to different voices and mediums of creative ideas; literature, graphic arts, music, film, and other artistic initiatives.


This coming August 30, 2014, the Young Davao Writers, the youth wing of the Davao Writers Guild, will be hosting the 5th yearly poetry event, LitOrgy, as litVrgy. The 5th year, depicted as the V in litVrgy (in Roman Numeral), is a brand new experience as this is the first mass-advertised spoken word event. LitOrgy was coined from “Literary” and “Orgy”, which depicts poetry as a fluid and a kinetic experience rather that just some words on a page.

Last week was a tough week for hardcore partygoers. As you know, a party organizer was revoked of her license. But that’s not the end, of course. There are still parties lined up for the party-hyper Dabawenyos and truly, our mayor was right, there’s no stopping the kids from partying.

When you’re in your 20s, it’s normal to feel invincible. You think you can never get sick, you think you’ll easily get out of debt, you’ll think you’re ready to live alone, quit your day job, dye your hair pink, et cetera. This is why we make a lot of flippant decisions and forgive ourselves easily. However, when you talk about money, it’s usually a different story.

Money, in our 20s, can be easily mishandled. And that’s okay. From a mere P150 a day when we were still studying, we jump to at least P300 a day when we start working. If you graduated top of your class, have a few awards or go straight to a call center company, most likely, you’ll even start with a 5-digit income. Of course, that is more than enough. That is why you will have no excuse not to save and invest. Continue reading »

I know how to make the good old spaghetti, a few whip-up desserts, some fried breakfast meals, and a couple of Pinoy viands. But I never thought this day would come this soon. The day I’d gamble my dignity trying to cook rice without a rice cooker. (And afterwards telling the blogosphere about it.) Continue reading »
