Cable TV and Cans of Milk

We just had our cable TV installed today. So right now we have more than 5 channels. Isn’t that exciting? (not)

I just realized a while ago when I was surfing the channels that it’s all the same. I mean the situation is all the same. The scenario is still the same. When we had only 5 channels on TV, I was complaining because there’s nothing good to watch. Now that we’ve got 70+ channels I’m still complaining because I don’t what the hell to watch. The solution – my computer. So I just went to my home office and sat in front of the PC to work on my projects.

Another thing is, I think there’s a scarcity of NAN HA-2 baby milk here in Pampanga. We looked everywhere – every supermarket and drugstore. We can’t find a can of NAN HA-2 for my baby. Where are the cans of milk, Nestle?!!!

Meanwhile, in the world of blogging, my Una WordPress theme is now widget ready. So for those of you looking for a clean looking professional theme, grab Una now. You can see the demo of Una theme on my website.

Make way for Pinoy Rock Lyrics!

I’ve just launched the super beta version of one of my personal projects. This one is called Pinoy Rock Lyrics.

This personal project was developed using WordPress as CMS. I designed the whole site in Fireworks for layout and Photoshop for image editing. As usual I converted the whole design into XHTML format using my favorite code editor, Notepad ++. After converting to XHTML, I ported it into WordPress. So in short, I developed the whole site by myself. Of course I’ve got help from Robert and the gang for the content.

Well, enough of the bragging. I want you guys to take a look at it and tell me how does it look and feel like. Please click the image below to go the Pinoy Rock Lyrics.

My Online Portfolio: Coming Soon

Killing Time with Online Messenger Games

It’s exactly 1:25 AM on my computer clock and I don’t know why I’m still awake. I’m supposed to be doing my web projects but unfortunately laziness has got into me again. I’m lying on my cozy sofa bed while i’m thinking of words to write here. Well, here you go. Please read if you are interested and I know you will be because this is interesting.

I was playing pool with an old friend, Patrick a.k.a Macmac, awhile ago on Yahoo Messenger. I lost the first two games but I managed to win on the third one. We got tired of pool so we tried the word hunt game. Well, I won. Then there was Pearl, another game from Yahoo Messenger. it works like Minesweeper but only it has better graphics. We didn’t finish the damn game because it was so fuckin’ boring i almost fell asleep. So we closed the game and we got disconnected.

I logged into Twitter and posted what I was doing. After that I opened Adobe Illustrator and created a new header for this blog. You may have noticed it already. Well yeah, I really like the color of it. It’s cool and nice to the eyes. How bout you what do you think about it?

I’m kinda sleepy. I should wrap this up with a thought for everybody- The new guy is a great guy.

Maybe you noticed the new look of this blog

Is it your first time here? If not, I’m sure you’ve noticed the new cool look of my blog. yeah I changed the layout and added a custom header. I’ve been doing vectors lately and yeah, I made the whole header thing on Adobe Illustrator CS2. I’ve been vectorizing faces since last week and a lot of people, mostly my friends at Yahoo. They want a vectorized face and they’re like demanding it like it was so easy to do. Well it ain’t easy like you think. It’s not like a filter in Photoshop. It’s more complicated.

If you want a vectorized face just contact me and I’ll do it for you for free but don’t be so demanding coz it’s free already.

Here are samples. Enjoy the Scanner Darkly Effect brought to you by Stylemo. That’s me!

CSS Pinoy to be launched on March 23, 2007

It’s been a hell of long time since my last post. So what’s keeping me busy? I’m cooking up something that I think Filipino CSS based designers would love.

CSS Pinoy ScreenshotI’m inviting everyone out there, bloggers or designers who truly embrace the age of new designs. CSS Pinoy is a showcase for CSS based websites crafted by the finest Filipino designers from around the globe. This is my first community project so I hope this goes well.

I’m asking for help to spread the word, first by adding a link to CSS Pinoy from your site or by simply word of mouth.

CSS Pinoy has already been featured in CSSMania, Screeanalicious and Most Inspired and to be featured in other CSS Showcase sites in the future.

Thank you and see you on the site launch!
