Coloring Your World

Sublevel

The world is often a constant place for open communication. When I found sublevel a few weeks back, I thought I would never like the openness of the product. I was wrong.

If I were to describe sublevel, I would say that it’d be the twitter that never was. Conversations and discussions between users are very engaging and unrestrictive. I’ve been lurking and toying around with sublevel for awhile now, and I can actually say that the discussions here are keeping me hooked to the site. It’s fun to read opinions and commentaries that you wouldn’t normally see in 140 characters.

It may not support images and videos, but it’s been proven that these strategies drive more discussions rather than images. I seriously hope that sublevel will grow over time, and see a very active community.

I’m on sublevel! Register and discuss with me tech stuff and everything under the sun by registering and following me (@carl) 🙂

Drive

It was fun covering this event last Monday at Makati. Got myself in a mini-shame attack though. I wore the wrong dress code in what was a very classy event (denim shorts, polo shirt, sneakers). Oh well, another lesson learned.

Ford recently launched two new cars: The Explorer Sport and the Escape, both really looking cool from a first person’s eye of view. Am really amazed with all the buttons that makes everything automated at the Explorer Sport, and the glossy interiors of the Escape. Check out our articles on Yugatech! We’ve got some really awesome shots there for you.

Man I wish to have these cool wheels someday, but I gotta learn to drive first. haha read here.

A week of travels in Metro Manila

I was able to travel to Most of Metro Manila this week, thanks to some events that I attended and errands that my mom asked me to do you can try these out.

Here are some shots taken from my current mobile phone, a MyPhone A888. I’m still very reluctant to bring my DSLR outside because of security and weight. Nonetheless, my phone takes great shots and is a great everyday companion.

Some 20 facts about me

I’m backreading all the chain posts I’ve been tagged with and I decided to do some of them. Here’s the first one, tagged by a friend in instagram. Too lazy to open the app so I thought it’s best to do it here.

  1. Nung bata ako, I was very hyperactive. Ngayon wala na, di nako ganun so ganito nako hahaha
  2. Waspart of my Grade School’s first Special/Advanced English Course during Gr.4-6
  3. In my last year of HS, the school waived my tuition fees in exchange for my services. I was one of the first student assistants in my alma mater.
  4. Art wasn’t my first choice: I wanted to take up IT or Commerce when I applied to top universities. I passed my UPCAT, but failed to enter because of quota restrictions.
  5. After high school, I worked part-time at my Alma Mater as an office aide. That’s where my passion for design flourished, and decided to take up the Graphic Design course at ciitphilippines.
  6. I’m a huge fan of East Asian culture, particularly the music. There’s something in them that makes me want to listen more.
  7. Currently, I’m a fan of Japanese idol group Morning Musume, and a ton of other idols and Japanese artists.
  8. I’m finally gradauting Spring 2015! Yay!

  11. I only started drinking alcoholic drinks when I actually turned 18. I’ve had one bottle of San Miguel beer at age four, but that doesn’t count. lol
  12. I watch Eurovision every year since 2011. It’s the only show which I highly commend because of the aesthetics, stage and production values. It’s really grand when compared to local shows, which is very disappointing at the very least.
  13. I have x-degree relatives back in Spain, all of which I’ve never met 🙁 it’s hard to trace back ancestry without parents’ help lol

HS Feels

Guuzen To Iu Na No Hitsuzen. Heard this video first on DrumMania at the local arcade. Fell in love with the song. It’s the first time I’m actually listening to it in years.

This was sung by ROAD OF MAJOR, a Japanese rock band that was debuted in early 2000s. They had a taste of achievement during their establishment, such as a #2 single, and one of the first indie bands to achieve a #1 record album on Japanese charts.

A decline in popularity followed, and the band decided to part ways in 2007 after years of unsuccessful attempts to reestablish their place in the J-Rock scene. Nonetheless, some of their music can be found on all sorts of media, such as arcade games.

It’s fun to rekindle with songs that made up your teenage years. Oh, how I wish I can being those back.

Liquid

It’s been over three weeks now since I had this Acer Liquid E700 with me, and this is one phone I’ll never forget. The three sim card slots and that huge battery capacity, along with its beefy specs, sure does wonders to create a rock solid phone. The full review is up on the website. Makes me want to buy it real soon 🙂

I personally enjoyed my time with my first review as part of this new company I’m doing my internship with. Looking forward to more gizmos to personally review.

Speaking of gizmos: Catch us this weekend at the Trendsetter’s Bazaar #GadgetDistrict! The sale starts today and ends Sunday, and you get as much as 85% off on great selections! Really cool, isn’t it?

A quick note: I put journal entries in relation my work to keep tabs on what I’ll be writing for my internship summary, which is coming up in a few weeks. So far, this whole time with YugaTech has been one hell of a blast for me. It pays to be motivated when you know you’re doing and working with things you’re really passionate about.
