Thanks for always being there. You never failed me. You listened when I ranted over from the trivial things to the most exigent global concern. You celebrated when I spell success. You inspired me to earn online. On my highs and on my lows you were there. You are simply amazing! Love you...

Lilium philippinense

7 comments

Saturday, October 31, 2009

It was a tiring day for me today. I had to run errands. I have to buy flowers for my dad who is on vacation in heaven right now. I was haggling the price of flowers at the Freedom Flower Park near our school. This has been my 5th year on a row of buying flowers for my dad. It was a great market. Lots of flowers were available. One flower got my attention its the "Lilium philippinense" or just Lilium it was for 200 pesos one branch of 3 flowers.


But whats interesting about this beautiful flower is its scent. It smells like a perfume. Its scent is very peculiar and lingering. I wonder if there are perfumes or colognes made out of its extracts. This flower is found in the Philippines only. It grows in Baguio.

Happy Halloween!

When LaagCebu was suspended

2 comments

Thursday, October 29, 2009

I was almost in tears last week when at around 1:00 AM in the morning I learned that my other blog - LaagCebu was suspended by kinohost, my service provider. I was given no explanation at all as why my site got suspended. To make matters worst, I already paid them for the whole year hosting for that site. We tried to contact the owner but to no avail. Could this be another scam? How many kinohost customers are victimized like me? 10? Probably 100 or 200? If you will multiply that to the whole year payment that would result to P100,000.00 to P200.000.00 or roughly 2,ooo to 4,000 US dollars. That a big amount.

Finally I decided to move on. I was scouting for new host when I found this great site about web hosting. Webhostinggeeks or http://webhostinggeeks.com offers information one will check upon availing of web hosts for one's website. It reviews and rates hosting services. Visitors will surely have the information they have to know prior pursuing with the hosting services. The site also contain an impartial list of top ten (10) performing web hosts for the year enough for customers to validate the reputation of their web hosting service providers.

You may visit the site to affirm the credibility of your web host provider.

By the way, my LaagCebu site is already back. Please visit and leave a message.

New Cars in the Cebu Airport

6 comments

Thursday, September 03, 2009


Apparently, the Mactan International Airport Authority had already started the implementation for the operation of yellow cabs - airport taxi within the City and neighbouring municipalities. Although metered, these airport taxis have different rates than the regular white taxi. Its flag down rate is P70.00 and 4 pesos for the succeeding number of meters. Its relatively double compared to the regular white taxis. These new cars on the road promises to be of convenience for the visitors and locals alike. But with the price conscious Cebuanos on mind, I doubt if this business will be able to sustain.

Now, it gets me to wonder. When should I buy my new car? Maybe its about time to visit some car dealership.

Hectic

Monday, August 24, 2009

It has been a constant battle with time for me these days. I've been involved in a lot of organizations on top of my regular lawyering job and part time teaching loads. Last week, I was just inducted as an auditor for a 2-year term in the Josenian Engineer Alumni Inc., a position I gladly accepted. Also, I am very dedicated and active with Cebu Bloggers Society since I see a very big potential for the organization and I believe that we can do great things as a group. The organization is starting right, alhough much is yet to be done and achieved . The organization is able to maintain its goals and direction despite the rough roads it has encountered in time.

Just a few hours ago, I was also with a group of very enthusiastic young people who dedicated a portion of their time for charity works. Their dedication and selflessness surprises me. The iLearners Inc. is a non profit non stock corporation which is dedicated to supporting, enriching and enhancing the learning experience of all students in the rural areas, where illiteracy is of a great number,investing its resources in education and youth, eliminating iliiteracy one at a time.

Juggling my time for my professional life and these organizations remains to be a challenge to me. To take this challenge is a big decision. Time Management is a must. The first step towards good time management is to invest on good time pieces. I have an old watch but I think I need to update my fashion sense with respect to watches. Its about time to visit the shops or online sites for an update. I wonder what' is in store at www.bestoftime.com. Please feel free to suggest.

Cebu Bloggers Heritage Tour Day 1

2 comments

Saturday, August 22, 2009


Thank God it was sunny just like in SFP Arizona when we the Cebu Bloggers Society had a little tour of the City during the holiday (Ninoy Aquino Day). It was very hot but we remained cool. It was tiring but exciting too.


Along the tour was a supposed challenge to tour the city with just a hundred pesos (P100.00 = $2.00). The participant with the least expense is supposed to win a refund of his/her expenses multiplied by 2 and a relaxing foot massage courtesy of LaagCebu.com. But in an unpredicted turn of events, we ended up spending nothing. Lunch was on Winston and Vanjohnn, dessert - a cake was on Kai and Beejing. The ice cream is on me. These and all were for our dear friend Bryan. He is now 20 years old.. yehey... and still a virgin? hmmm Anyhow, I hope we were able to surprise him and make him happy at least for that day.

We continued the tour after lunch and it was very promising. I sure that this work would soon dominate the online world (hehehe) and the airwaves. There is really nothing wrong in hoping.


I wonder, is there a place in a world where weather is perfect all the time. Where people go out without fear of a sudden change of weather? Weather Bulletins have now become a news report rather than a forecasting. Why not try Arizona? They brag of their weather there.

Web Hosting for Cebu City Lawyers

2 comments

Monday, August 17, 2009

Let me officially announce it here that I am now accepting web hosting quotations for a wordpress website with forums. Should you be interested please email your quotations on the mail provided in my profile. Quotation emails are expected before August 2009 ends.

For several days already I had been searching for the perfect web host for the proposed website of IBP Cebu City. I read and searched in the internet for a possible list of credible companies offering web site hosting. I stumbled upon this very helpful website (http://webhostingrating.com/) that completely lists all the available hosting services and rate them according to their performance and customer’s satisfaction. It is indeed a good source of information in profiling your partner hosting company to ensure the continuity of your business. One of the big factors for online success is your site’s minimal if not lack of downtime and bandwidth capacity. This website also comes with a bunch of helpful articles discussing further about hosting and things you should know before having one.

I am really looking forward of setting up this new website. Should this proposal be approved I shall invite bloggers to the launching of this new site. Cebu City Lawyers are pretty much excited about this too. This would also mean a better communication tool for lawyers on the news and updates within our organization.
