Singing for iBlog6: The 6th Philippine Blogging Summit - see you there!

Promote this event badgeWhen I found out that iBlog6 was going to be held at the University of the Philippines Diliman - College of Law, an idea struck me - it would be really easy to get one of the many excellent UP performing groups to do an intermission number for this blogging convention. Why not?

I've been to numerous corporate conventions and private events and they always had some sort of entertainment for the guests - so why not here? Hehe. I'm sure it will be good diversion from the series of speeches to hear some good music...

What Earth Hour means to me

Tonight, at 8:30PM, we turned off all the lights in the house as participation to Earth Hour 2010.  For 1 full hour, the house was dark save for a couple of candles, we had our dinner by candle light.

I have heard and read a lot of dissenting opinions about Earth Hour, how it doesn't really do anything and all that. I noted, as we turned off our own lights, some of our neighbors did not, the street lamps we not turned off, and most of the other appliances in our own house was still running as well - refrigerators, air conditions, laptops and whatever else. So why the heck did we still do it?

To me it is simple...

Bloggers Invade Velocity Bar Marriott Hotel Manila!

I have not been to a party like this in a while, and so it was a welcome diversion to go to Manila on a weekday for some good music, free food and drinks, games and great company - it was Bloggers' Night at the Velocity Bar, Marriott Hotel Manila.

When my girlfriend Liz and I arrived, the party was already well under way, drinks were being served and a very appetizing cocktail spread greeted us. Our host, Michelle Garcia, Marketing Communications Manager at Marriott Hotel Manila, had prepared a few games and some freebies, and even set up a Wii console to provide for some R and R for the bloggers in attendance...
