Vivo to bring the house down this March with newest flagship

Top global phone manufacturer Vivo is set to send the mobile phone industry in frenzy with the release of yet another stunner in their smartphone series. Set to be unveiled March, Vivo’s latest offering promises consumers bigger and better offerings in their mobile phone experience.

Following the success of the V7 plus and the V7 release, word is out that consumers can expect that the new offering will retain all of the V7 phones’ impressive, thumbprint features albeit enhanced and updated with specs that are centered on delivering flawless selfie shots made even by state-of-the-art artificial intelligence beautifying tools. Because it is still dedicated in delivering perfect photos, it should also be expected that the camera will rock a souped up HDR mode.

Moreover, a buzz on this newest Vivo flagship includes a bigger display complemented by a full HD resolution. As the V7’s successor, the Game Mode feature is expected to still be onboard in the list of specifications along with the futuristic Face ID and fingerprint unlock component.

The mobile phone industry awaits with bated breath as Vivo’s freshest charmer is out on the market. Although the specs are merely founded on speculations, one thing that is certain is Vivo will never disappoint.

Instant Staycation

Almost a week after my Singapore and Kuala Lumpur adventure, I flew again to Manila for my two-week staycation este training. I went home a week after for a short weekend. Anyway, I'll be back to work tomorrow for 24 hours (huhu) but hey, the silver lining is I get extra moolah for my travels. Speaking of traveling, I'll be flying again in two and a half weeks to Sydney and Melbourne and I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED RIGHT NOW. Can't wait to be back in my favorite country.

But for now, I shall finish reading my pending book list.

Debt Bed

I tried the Grab premium service of Singapore just for the heck of it. So, they gave me a Toyota Vellfire. Everything's automated, and it also has a sunroof. The driver was quite talkative, and it came to a point that we were talking about the Singaporean way of life. The convo went something like this:

Driver: So this car costs SGD 260k lah.

Me: Wow, that's like 10 million pesos! I can already buy a 2 bedroom condominium in that amount.

Driver: Oh, really? The average price of the condo here in Singapore is SGD 2.5 million!

Me: (gikapoy na ko mag compute kay for sure daghan zeroes involved). Whoa! But I think the payment scheme here is easier. You'll pay your condo for a hundred years. Even if you're dead, you still have to pay before you go to heaven. Death by debt!

Driver: HAHAHAHA you're crazy!

Me: I know, right?

Just a quick update

Okay, so I'm currently in the lounge, waiting for my flight to Manila. Here's what happened: My flight was originally scheduled to depart from Davao at 5.30 PM. Upon checking in, the flight was overbooked due to equipment change. The ground staff was looking for volunteers to give up their seats in exchange for a free round-trip ticket to any domestic destinations (except Busuanga, Caticlan, and Basco). To cut the long story short, I got transferred to the 11.10 PM flight to Manila, but I got what I want. LOL! This is my third time to experience this. Ang swerte ko naman!

Anyway, I am flying to Kuala Lumpur via Singapore Changi tomorrow afternoon. I am so thrilled since it is going to be my first time flying with Singapore Airlines. I have heard a lot of good reviews about that airline, so yeah. Can't wait to vlog my very first airline review. Hahaha, yep I'm doing an airline review on my vlog since I am a frequent traveler.

RF20 and some other things

Roger Federer won. And it's his 20th major win during the recently concluded Australian Open 2018 held in Melbourne, Australia. While it was already a no-brainer he'd win, his opponent was rather a tough one. Cilic Marin from Croatia beat world's number 1, Rafael Nadal during the quarterfinals. I was rooting for Rafa because hello, he's a lefty like me plus he's from España, one of the countries that I've been dying to visit. But no, Nadal is only good on the clay surface. He was struggling during the 4th set. Fuck, he can't even run! Okay, here's what you might not know: I am a lowkey tennis fan. I've started playing tennis on Nintendo when I was young, so I am very much familiar with its rules, scoring, and all. During the college, I played Virtua Tennis on PSP, and I would always choose either Nadal or Federer. Going back to #AusOpen2018, it was a great finish for Federer. Cilic was a tough opponent. I was also rooting for Hyeon Chung. He's the first Asian to ever reach the semi-finals on the Australian Open. Too bad, he retired early during his match with Federer. If I were there watching the game live, I'd be totally disappointed, but hey, that's how the game goes.

Mount Mayon Eruption and its Effects to PH Aviation

Right: Photo by Ezra Acayan

Mount Mayon, one of the active volcanoes in the Philippines had some series of eruption for the past two weeks. PHILVOCS issued an alert level 3 warning to the province of Albay. Forced evac was implemented by the local government to those who are living within the permanent danger zone areas of the volcano.

Two nights ago, it spewed ash, blanketing neighboring towns of the province. It doesn't just put the livelihood of its people in danger, but also to aircraft flying along the airways near the volcano.

Happy 1 Year of Vlogging!

Exactly a year ago, I went to South Korea and filmed my first ever vlog. Vlogging wasn't really my cup of tea because (i) it's a tedious task to edit videos; and (ii) I am really uncomfortable filming myself. Weeks before this trip, a lot of people (mostly from #DBSTheBest) convinced me to film a vlog during this trip. It was fun and awkward doing it, but I thought I need to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. After releasing this video online, I received positive remarks, some of them asking to create more videos like this one. It defo means a lot to me.

 I know I am still far behind to some leading travel YouTubers out there (see also: Sam Kolder, Erwan Heussaff, Ollie Ritchie, Benn Tkalcevic, and etc), but I'm trying to master this craft. It's hard, yes, but once you publish your final output, everything's worth it.

Vlogging is now part of my creative outlet aside from music and writing. This year, I promise to shoot more videos on my travels. I want everyone to show how beautiful the world is, at least in my own little way.
