Flat Tire

Last 2 weeks ago, we had a small gig at my hometown. The gig was fun. We were about to go home after the show but my car’s frontwheel got flat. Well the car isn’t actually mine but it’s my wife’s. The left front wheel was punctured by some kinda sharp pointed thing. I was parked along the highway where vulcanizing shops are abundant around the area.

I didn’t catch the cilprits but I was drawn to the conclusion that the ones who did it were from around the area where I parked. Damn this people. Karma will hit them soon.

It was a good thing that some
of my friends decided to help me fix it up.

I’ve learned a lesson – don’t park around vulcanizing shops. They’re gonna get your tires hoping you’d bring it to them for a fix.


2009 Hot Air Balloon Festival

Yesterday we headed towards Clark, Pampanga to see things that can fly. I never saw Superman though. I took some pictures and you can check it out on my flickr account.

Bluetooth Saves

I was on my way home last Tuesday night. The bus had only four passengers, 3 guys (including me) and a girl. I was seated on the front row seat of the bus beside the window. On the opposite side was this pretty girl. She was like 4 feet away from me. I was glancing at her pretty face and I think she caught me looking at her. I wanted to get her name but I was a little bit shy. I didn’t know how to get to know her so I thought of some way to get her name. Then I saw a phone in her hands. I was sure her phone is bluetooth-enabled. So I took my phone out of my pocket, activated my bluetooth and started searching for her device if it was bluetooth-active. To my surprise, it was but when i saw her device name, that was when I stopped hoping. Guess what name appeard on the list of active bluetooth devices, No_bf_no_problem. I was sure it was hers.

I laughed my ass off to myself that night. The lesson is, learn to take advantage of the technology today. Or better yet, take a nap when you’re in a bus and stop glancing at pretty chicks you big loser.

BAd Congress

Tomorrow I’ll be going to the Ad Congress at Subic. I don’t know what the hell I’ll be doing there. Maybe I’ll just sit there and watch the people talk or should I be learning something new? Well I really have no idea.

The Ad Congress started on Wednesday and I know I missed the fun already. But what the hell, going there is not part of my plan anyway. I’m going there because my bosses told me so. I’m going there because I don’t want to stay at the office for work. I know I’m not gonna have some fun but what the heck, I’ll be bringing my PSP with me to keep me company.

I’m wondering if there will be any congressmans there. See ya.


I was already late for work yesterday so I decided to ride a taxi to go to work. When I arrived at the building, the taxi driver is asking me for a tip. These damn taxi drivers. Ang kakapal ng mukha.

I have another unfinished vector art on the works and this time it’s my office buddy.  He’s a php programmer and I won’t mention his name. This vector is still on it’s alpha stage which means it’s still 20% done. Well enjoy.

All Work and No Play

no play

I wish the summer is over. It’s burning out there and in here. I’m living in a tropical country and it’s near the equator. No wonder why it’s so hot. Or is this global warming?

For the past few days I’ve been very busy at work and I need to relax a bit. Last night I went home from work and I’ve got a severe headache and the cure for it was sleep. The problem with that is I don’t normally go to sleep early but because of my headache that I got from work, I slept early. Damn! I haven’t touched my Playstation Portable last night and it’s all because of that damn headache. I’ve got a lot of projects to do at night and I skipped it last night. What was I supposed to do?

Well, I feel ok now. Above is a graphic I made with Illustrator. And yeah, please submit your CSS powered /designed sites at CSS Pinoy. And check my other blog, stylemo.
