Bare necessities. If you are ever in Manila/PHL and looking to get a Prepaid mobile line for emergency and/or to just communicate around the islands, this might get you on the right track.
I did some research with Globe and their “GoSakto” make-your-own combos; ~P500/month for some calls and unlimited texting ain’t bad (P300 only if 1,000 of text). I’ll be able to afford more cronuts now!
I was fortunate enough to attend the first-ever “Platform Talks” with jeffstaple1 here in Manila. For those that couldn’t attend, here’s a quickstrike of highlights throughout this “ordinary” Tuesday, October 30th afternoon…
Time-lapse on a beautiful September day, on the shores of Crystal Beach in San Narciso, Zambales (Philippines). Each shot we’re 10-seconds apart with a total of 104 exposures; ~17 minutes total real-time.
Our road trip from Saturday, September 1, 2012. Passed Subic from some lunch at Meat Plus Cafe, then headed north to Zambales to get some surf, sand, and fun in the Sun.
We rolled to San Narciso’s Crystal Beach Resort. The people were friendly and so welcoming. It also happens to be a Quicksilver learning school. So that was awesome. Thanks to @SurfinFish + @Tdlc35Cruz + @BLKC24 + @MargauxSue + Chef May + Tess for a dope Saturday!
I see this “Anti-Discrimination Bill” being talked about earlier in the news here in the PI, I say cool. At the same time, question: “It’s 2012? Is this just another act of politicking? Etc.”
I wondered why this isn’t already inclusive; as part of the PI’s Bill of Rights (Article 3)? A quick research of the Philippine’s Constitution (been a while since I’ve seen this as you may know), ain’t these enough common sense to abide by?
Article 3, Section 1
Article 3, Section 5
Preamble, “under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace…”
You would also think for a population that is dominantly Christian (90%+), a religion that holds “Love” as the greatest commandment (all religions and belief systems do), wouldn’t this be instilled from the start of one’s upbringing and social interactions. But I guess, that’s just part of the struggle.
We live to be our best self one day at a time. We’re just human.
