Air Asia Philippines Diaries Day 2

March 4. Day 2 of the Air Asia Philippines Media Tour.

I woke up very early after sensing that Blue Palawan resort hotel actually has one of the finest views Of the Palawan sunrise. The break of dawn is an amazing sight, complemented by the sound of the chirping birds.

A little bit later breakfast was served. Prior to checkin i opted to have chorizo recado with no rice for breakfast. But the chorizo really screams for carbs. So i gave in. I ordered. A cup of fried rice.

It’s undeniable. Di na talaga matatakasan.

Summer is (almost) here!

In just a few days from now people from the metro would start the exodus to the beaches in Puerto Galera, Batangas and Boracay and filling up hotel rooms for the weekend staycation.

As early as January, I was already firming up my summer 2015 plans. And among the cities i considered for the holiday break is the paradise known as El Nido.

LG G3 Field Test

LG one of the leading Korean phone manufacturers has launched its flagship phone model theLG G3. And just before Christmas I was lucky enough to got hold of the phone to do a review and test its capabilities.

The new LG G3 has sleek thin body, slightly curved to fit in the palm of your hands.

Performance-wise i have no qualms in using this phone. In fact i brought the phone with me during my recent travels especially in Tangub City and during the Lakbay Norte Media Tour.

REVIEW: Philips A5PRO

headphnes are an essential part of me. i always put it on every time I need to listen to music or watch videos or simply, wanted to zone out. and just recently I got the chance to review the Philips A5PRO headphones just a few days before the year ended.

one of the features that i love is the quality f the sound. hnds down, it’s really good. I can really feel the music blasting through my ears. the soft whispers from the movies were like love note note gently blown in the air. sweet.

another thing I love about this headphone is its coiled wire. i can easily extend its length without much worrying that it might break or snap. (I know it’s never gonna happen!) and another thing that I like bout this headphone is its ease of transferring its cable from the left earpiece to the right, depedng on your preference.

Oh wait, did I mention that you can easily fold its sides? this means it saves a lot of storage and can fit well in a smll pouch. neat!
