Mixtape Mondays, Vol 1

Sometimes, when the summer heat is unbearable, I'd pray for a rain, or at least an overcast weather. I love rainy days, but not to the point wherein mandatory evacuation is necessary. A cup of hot tea or coffee on a rainy day is already nice, but it would be better if it's accompanied by good music.

For the first volume of the Mixtape Mondays blog series, allow me to share Hues & Blues - my snuggle weather playlist. However, you can't download the whole playlist because it's illegal. Good thing, there's Spotify.
  1. The Scientist - Coldplay
  2. Lost At Sea - Dave Thomas Junior
  3. Illgresi - Sigur Rós
  4. O (Ghost Stories) - Coldplay
  5. Time Forgets - Yiruma
  6. England - The National
  7. Coffee - Copeland
  8. Vienna - The Fray
  9. Collide - Howie Day
  10. Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
  11. I'm Not Talking - A.C. Newman

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 1

This personal blog will turn 9 this October. Time flies so fast! I created this blog last 2006 to document my not-so-awesome high school life. I used to have a journal but I thought of publishing my thoughts online. And besides, those were the days when only a few people know what a BLOG is. Years after, this blog became stagnant. I focused on updating my travel blog since 2011.

This year, I am going to update this more often. I've been promising this to myself since 2012, but due to my busy schedule, I wasn't able to fulfill it. And now, I'm going to publish more personal posts this year by starting this blog series, The Sunday Currently. I first encountered this after reading Camie and Chester's blog. 

Alright, here goes nothing.

How to Become an Air Traffic Controller in the Philippines

Lately, I have been receiving emails regarding on how to become an ATC (Air Traffic Controller) in the Philippines. Well, let me tell you something about the nature of the job of an air traffic controller. You see, they are the guiding voices of the sky. They instruct pilots when and where to descend, climb, commence a left or right turn, and other specific instructions. They are responsible for handling air traffic in a safe, orderly, and in an expeditious way.

Here in the Philippines, Air Traffic Controllers work under the Philippine government, specifically at the Air Traffic Service of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines or CAAP.

Here are the steps on how to become one:
