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!


PS. You may test more com­bos over here.

Seems there’s a bet­ter promo if you are look­ing to spend about P500, GoUnli500. The promo bun­dle includes the following:

  • Viber, FBMsg, Kakaotalk,WhatsApp, WeChat, Line
  • Text to All networks
  • Calls to Globe and TM
  • Free Face­book up to 10MB
  • Chat
  • Valid­ity: 30 days

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.

Feet First

This is where it all began. Brighton beach, England.

Feet First” travel pho­tog­ra­phy by Tom Robinson:

While sit­ting on Brighton beach (UK) back in 2005 with my new girl­friend Ver­ity I thought the view of our feet point­ing out to sea would make a nice photo. Ever since then we’ve con­tin­ued to doc­u­ment our trav­els in this way, result­ing in a col­lec­tion of over 100 pho­tos. In 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – our daugh­ter Matilda. You can already see her lit­tle feet get­ting big­ger and bigger.
