Philippines’ Globe Mobile Network Promos

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!

Get On… Pagudpud

A day in the region of Pagud­pud. Ilo­cos Norte, Philip­pines. This place usu­ally has awe­some weather but we hap­pen to just catch a storm. Oh well, it wasn’t too bad head­ing out and doing some hikes and explo­ration by flip-flop. We went to only visit the North-side as we needed to get back down to Laoag later on that day. (Feb 2013)

All shot on the GoPro HERO2 HD. Edited on FCP X. My first time using it; sucks that you can’t trim the rejected partial-clips like in iMovie ’11. I might have to do the trim­ming before­hand, as unwanted file-space is adding up.

Surfin’ Fish — Day Trip Zambales

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!

Good times!
