Regency Lagoon Resort, Boracay

Check out my photos during our weekend stay @ Regency Lagoon Resort in Boracay from August 20 - 23, 2011. It was my first time to visit Boracay together with my girlfriend's family and we're happy that we spent our stay at Regency. I must say that the resort was totally luxurious even though most of the occupants are koreans, pffftt! 

Resort's crew services and food, High Class!

What I like most about the resort is the bar at the middle of the pool. Isn't cool? The pool is just 4 to 5 feet, you can beer or whatever drinks you want while enjoying the pool.

Our stay in Regency Lagoon Resort was totally worth it! 5 Star Rating for me.

What does a Hero truly need?

What does a Hero truly need? That is for you to decide. For me, I need Speed beyond measure! hahaha! Traxex! Check out Dota 2 Gamescom trailer and more information about the coming tournament below.

The $1 million Dota 2 tournament has started at Gamescom. You can follow all the action live right this very minute on the Dota 2 site. It’s clear within a few minutes of watching that Valve aren’t just rolling out a new game, they’re trying to create the best e-sports spectator experience in the world.

Let’s start with the tournament page itself. There are commentary streams for every nationality that you can switch between at will. The team lineups are below. This provides easily accessible information on each hero. Spectators new to the game can quickly see the stats, strengths and weaknesses of each character and gain an understand of what’s happening, even if they’ve never played Dota before.

The most impressive addition is the live scoreboard. It’s a pop up that streams real time game information straight to a web page. You can see how much gold each character has, their level, whether they’ve gained their ultimate ability and their current kill/death scores. When they use their ultimate, you can even see the cooldown timer counting the seconds until it can be used again. These stats are updated instantaneously. When level 18 Pugma saunters up to a level 16 Lich you’ll know who has the advantage, and why. via pcgamer

Ang Babae sa Septic Tank

I just saw "Ang Babae sa Septic Tank" (The Woman in a Septic Tank) together with my girlfriend (actually, I just dragged into seeing the movie), yesterday. As expected, it was funny and worth the penny. I was like watching a movie and play at the same time. The story line was simple yet full of ingredients. It's about this three passionate filmmakers who dreamed of making an award winning independent film.

See it now guys! I assure you, it's worth the penny.


Ang Babae sa Septic Tank chronicles a day in the life of three ambitious, passionate but misguided filmmakers as they set out to do a quick pre-prod at Starbucks, a courtesy call to their lead actress, Eugene Domingo, and an ocular inspection of their film’s major location, the Payatas dumpsite. Director Rainier, Producer Bingbong and Production Assistant Jocelyn are well-to-do, well-educated film school graduates who are dead set on making an Oscar worthy film. They believe they have a winning script, the energy and the drive to make their dreams come true. Like most filmmakers they know, they have devised a screenplay that will show the real essence of our culture: poverty.

In the course of one day, they brainstorm and exhaust all possible treatment of their project: the story of Mila (Eugene Domingo), a mother from the slums, who out of desperation to survive, has sold her child to a pedophile. As they discuss the possible executions of the story, the movie-within-a-movie gets reborn in Jocelyn’s imagination several times. As a gritty no frills neo-realist film, as a glossy musical, as an over-the-top melodrama and as a docu drama using non-actors. 

For their last task of the day, they visit the dumpsite for the first time. As filmmakers gunning for authenticity, they get excited with the ”beauty” of the squalor around them. Soon enough, they are faced with reality as they come face to face with the real effects of their chosen subject. Babae sa Septic Tank is a comedy about misguided ambitions, the art of making art and the romanticization of poverty. via: cinemalaya

Another year older and I would have to say that I'm grateful of where I'am and to whom I'm with. I'm thanking God for giving me this year a happy and fruitful one and I wish to have more of it in the future. 

I was thinking of buying something for myself - maybe a new phone (Sony Ericsson Experia Arc) or a lens (Nikkor 18-200 mm) for my slr pero gusto ko din ng iPad ung 3g + Wifi 64 gb! hahahaha! Anyhoe, I also want to thank my friends who greeted me because even though we barely see each other they still remember my day. 

By the way, I made an experiment on facebook, I intentionally hid my birthday and see if who can still remember it, in that way you can figure out the people who truly value you.  Try it too guys! It's Cool!
