11 Years Ago… Where It All Began

Armed with basic HTML/JavaScript and PHP, I launched my very first blog back in college (June 29, 2005). I had zero MySQL knowledge at the time so I had to be creative — comments were stored in local TXT files. And as they say, the rest was history. My blog was originally called “Konsento’s Dimension” […]

Fight Night

I’m not a very huge fan of Pacquiao but I didn’t miss his retirement fight last evening. But for me and my friends, it has been pretty much a tradition that we organize a small get-together each time he has a match and take advantage of the opportunity to catch up with each other. He […]

Upgrade Time

Three years ago (the day before I celebrated my very first birthday in Canada), I signed up for a phone plan. For my subscription I was issued an Xperia Arc phone, downgrading my Nokia N8’s status to a backup phone. It was quite a looker back then – not to mention a perfect birthday present! […]

School Journal: Week 5 + Throwback!

School is getting busier as usual… workload is increasing and is directly proportional and I’m loving it! Photoshop 1 Retouching Day! I am already familiar with the basic retouching and all that; I’ve mainly used the Healing Brush Tool, Red Eye and (believe it or not) the Color Dodge Tool! Little did I know that […]

So Fetch: It’s Mean Girls’ 10th Anniversary!

That moment when you realized that one of your favourite movies is already celebrating its tenth birthday. Back in 2004 when I was a college freshman (and still had a crush on Lindsay Lohan), Mean Girls premiered on the theatres and my classmates and I decided to check it out during one of our 4-hour […]

Enumerations

Does the picture remind you of your high school or college exams where you’re asked to enumerate a set of answers? I’ve always had a love-and-hate relationships with these types of exams… however I do find them challenging, even more than those math problems. I was talking to a high school friend earlier today and […]

No-Facebook Challenge

Another challenge completed – and I broke my previous record. 🙂 For the entire month of February, I dared myself to surpass my previous accomplishment of not going on Facebook for an entire week (seven days) last year. I just decided from out of the blue to go on a “cyber-detox” and pushed through with […]

20, November

The 20th of November is something that I have always “observed” as a special day. It’s not an anniversary of some sort, but if you have guessed it right – 20, November is a song in the game Dance Dance Revolution (DDR). I still don’t know where Konami got the title of the song, but […]

Meteor Garden

I’m having another nostalgia fit again. I was chatting with a friend in Facebook who was my classmate back in the university yesterday, and we were recalling our funny college days until we ended talking about Meteor Garden. During those years, Filipinos have come to love watching imported Spanish telenovelas which are dubbed in Tagalog […]

Graduation Chronicles

Today I was invited to attend a friend’s college graduation. It’s the first time I’ve attended a graduation ceremony here in Winnipeg. There’s not much difference, except for the colour of the graduation gowns that the graduates wear. It’s blue instead of black. Other than that, the feeling and ambience are similar. It was a […]
