One of the final roles to be cast was Harrison Ford’s character as Woodrow Dolarhydein Cowboys and Aliens, a absolution’s cattle-rancher benefactor…and the only man keeping the decaying town and its inhabitants from financial ruin.

Unionbank and Gcash Makes Banking Easier with eMoney XCHANGE!

Image
Banking is one of the thing I don't  like to do, there is a lot of hassle of falling in line and also finding the right bank to make deposits and savings. Since I also have a paypal account, there are rarely a lot of banks that support linking the paypal account. Luckily there is Unionbank with their Visa EON Card which many paypal users in the Philippines use to link their accounts.

Things also get better as Unionbank Eon account can now transfer amounts to your Gcash and vice versa. This would be a great help to people who work, buy, and sell online as it becomes banking becomes more convenient and secure.

Captain America is My Motivational Teacher

Image
Though he can't fly or have laser vision, Captain America is one of my most favorite characters in the Avengers as he  proves that you don't need super special powers to deliver justice. As a symbol of national pride and freedom, it would motivate me to do better in what I do right now. Even though I'm not an American, he does not look down on any race or culture. The pure intentions to serve his nation and it citizens was also one of my inspirations to be either a soldier or public servant someday.

Philippine National Railway Manila-Biñan
You think the MRT or LRT is the densest place on Earth but they would not come close to the non electric train by the Philippine National Railway. Used to be feared by many as the most unwanted transportation system in the country because of the decayed cabins and the tracks that used to be inches away from houses which are vulnerable to be run over by the train if not careful has now evolved into its real purpose as a functioning train system minus the side tenants.

Blogs Overhaul!

Image
I'm bringing my blogs into a whole new level. More features, better graphics and more stories to share  for the three major blogs under the MTL group of blog companies (LOL).  Like TV and radio stations that change their station IDs every now and then. I like to do the same for my blogs to give them a fresh look. However, I am avoilding any major changes in the logo and other contents that would confuse the readers. Last Month, I started with MTL's lighter look. Now with the revival of my comic strip at Krisis Komix (www.krisiskomix.blogspot.com), and also the rise of the food events at FudFyt (www.fudfyt.blogspot.com).  It will be a very busy week for me to make all of these changes. but I hope you would like them as I am doing it for all of you(Aww...). And by the way don't forget to like their facebook fan pages!

Blah Blah Blog RAINY DAYS: To Zoo or Not To Zoo?

Image
TO ZOO OR NOT TO ZOO... That is the question.
Another trendsetter this week was the Infamous condition of the Manila Zoo posted in a post by Propinoy.net. The post showed the very poor condition of the animals with their nutrition and also their health and also untreated wounds. It is really a sad to see the animals at this conditions, especially it was my first zoo experience in my life. And I have been to several other zoos like Avilon and Malabon which takes good care of the animals. Though I prefer seeing animals in the wild but zoos can be a source of a sanctuary for animals that needs special care and not primarily for entertainment.

Peactech: Paving the Road to Unity Starts Now!

Image
We are in a world where people don't have that sense of trust because of stereotypes and discrimination that leads to conflict and even war. The Nation is still divided more than the number of the islands of the archipelago. Peace seems today like a fantasy that is far from what we have today. However, imagine if we could give people from different backgrounds the opportunity to speak with one another, live, on giant screens! Just maybe it would reduce ignorance, promote understanding and ultimately, lessen conflict!
