I myself didn’t know why we have Leap Years, all I know was that every 4 years February gets an extra day. The video below explains this in detail. You just have to keep up with the fast talking narrator…
In 1986, an event transpired that most most of us have come to know as “People Power”. Some believed that this would bring about betterment in the lives and well-being for all Filipinos after the 21-year rule of former President Ferdinand Marcos. But did it?
26 years later, nothing changed, or should I say even changed for the worse. The Philippines is now in a much sorrier state than before, further left behind by it’s neighbors and the economy now relying heavily on OFW’s remittances.
If you haven’t heard about Jeremy Lin, you probably was not on earth this past few weeks. The New York Knicks Pointguard was the recent talk of the town as he lead his NBA team to 5 straight victories after starting in a game against the Utah Jazz.

Below is an infographic (or should I say “Linfographic”) about Jeremy Lin’s journey to success from Infographic World.
Project iPhoneography is my latest attempt for a photoblog (yes, I had numerous attempts in the past…). I always had a passion for photography. I love taking pictures, capturing priceless moments as they happen and browsing through pictures with amazing effects.

For us overseas, we often crave for our favorite signature Filipino food. One of the most missed is Jollibee. Who would not long for that crispy and juicy Chickenjoy and its very tasty gravy; the Palabok Fiesta and Jolly Spaghetti that all of us have grown to love? Whenever someone goes for a vacation back to the Philippines, more often than not, we ask them to bring us back some of these Jollibee goodies.
Here in Singapore, one small fast food joint somewhat gives us a taste of that: Happy V Fried Chicken.
Yes co-Star Wars fanatics, you read it right, he is alive! Darth Maul, the Sith apprentice who we saw was cut into two by Obi Wan Kenobi at the end of the Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, apparently survived. Not in a new movie though but in a continuing saga in Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars according to EW.com.
Common sense is like deodorant, the people who need it most never use it.
