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!

An August Sunday, East of the Barrio

Blessed with a blue sky and fluffy clouds after weeks of rain, I fig­ure I take the GoPro for anoth­er spin and a time-lapse of the Bar­rio. I faced this one towards the east, over­look­ing Pasig Prop­er (Down­town) and part of C5. This has a total of 217 pho­tos, each tak­en at a 30-sec­ond inter­val. So that’s a total of about 1:48:30 of real-time footage of the area.

Enjoy!
