Satisfaction

I’m a tourist guide and I’ve been at it for more than two years. I have sacrificed a lot because I believe that it is worth it. It’s not a dream job because if it is a dream job, it wouldn’t be “real” right? 🙂 It’s all real to me. The possibilities of doing a…

Make mine Friday

From Rappler: Jimenez acknowledges that using social media as the primary medium for the campaign gives the DOT less control – and gives more to the people.  But that is exactly what he wants.  The campaign appeals to Filipinos to promote the Philippines themselves, to interpret the campaign’s logo and official line however they see…

Philippine history as news on Twitter

I enjoy Facebook but I also have a Twitter account because of my wife and some of my close friends back in college. I have yet to enjoy posting on it because it has the 140-character limit, which I sometimes dislike. I write long stuff 🙂 What I do like about it is that I…

Pre-2012 in review

A rock in my throat

My other job is to write content for telcos. While doing my research on Christmas carols, I stumbled upon this song composed by National Artist Felipe Mendoza de Leon and written by Brigido Batungbakal and Eduardo de Leon: The lyrics and their translation that I got from the clip in parenthesis: Payapang Daigdig Ang gabi’y payapa…
