I was about to step out of the house until I heard the sad news in Channel NewsAsia — Lee Kuan Yew passed away. At first I couldn’t believe it so I snuck a peep into Google over my laptop. It was true.
One of Asia’s greatest leaders has gone, beaten by pneumonia.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Lee.
By the time I got to the office, I did some Google searching and noticed a small black ribbon for the Singapore based search engine. Google is quite known to be quirky in their branding for special events.
No surprise there then I thought of checking out the rest.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Dumaguete and don’t mind taking an extra tricycle ride to the place of 15 – 30 minutes, I would recommend Bolmon Guest House.
Bolmon Guest House is a small lodging located close to Siliman Farm and Siliman Beach. The guest house from afar looks like a set of town houses but when you visit inside it’s quite furnished enough for those free and easy groups. The guest house has a lobby (sala) and a multi function room to boot. So group gatherings can be done. The two-storey house also have different room sizes so singles, couples and a family or two can easily stay in.
Though Bolmon does have a feel of home, they do provide room cleaning and have clean sheets and bathroom. In fairness, the bathroom’s size is just enough. They do provide towels, shampoo and soap. Sorry, no toothbrushes. But they do have a cable TV inside. Air conditioning is definitely a yes.
Koji: Where are you? I was at the parking and you never replied.
Me: Dude, I was stuck 30 minutes delayed from flight, 30 minutes waiting for a parking space for the plane and a frigging hour for our luggage.
Koji: LOL. Good thing I didn’t go up.
Me: Why? You finally delivering your funeral invitation?
Koji: No. Christmas present.
Me: Ooooh! Let me guess? Cheap?
Me: That’s what I get for being 3 actual friends rolled into 1 for you don’t I?
Koji: Yes. Rule of economics. You’re the bundle plan.
I first discovered Avocado a couple of years back. I always wanted to test it out seeing the app was green and had a decent sounding name. Unfortunately, since Avocado was an app for couples and during that time I wasn’t really involved with anyone, I couldn’t test it. Really, Avocado, you should add a dummy boyfriend with the app for geeky people like me who wants to try it out. Luckily, I decided what the heck I’ll grab a friend who gladly played boyfriend for the time being.
This is the sad reality. Though people say that they miss you, there will always be that fine line that is unspoken. Yeah, gloomy start for the week but it does not hurt to remember from time to time because you don’t want to be hurt and you don’t to hurt anyone.
So here’s the idea. You order pizza and it comes with this sticker that says Hot.
Think of other ways where you can use the sticker…. Go!
I can only think of two ways:
Stick it to a plug. When plugs are “overworked” they tend to heat up. This is a good indication that it’s about time to replace your plug or appliance.
Stick it to the kettle. Especially if you have the basic one. No need to pat it. If you’re living with other people and tend to sterilize your drinking water, this becomes a handy visual sign that it’s ready for your hot drink or up for transferring into the pitcher for the fridge. Yes, we do it at home.
A few months ago, I blogged about gallstones. It still surprises me how parents used french fries as their kids’ pacifier.
This clip surely puts in that image. It surely shows how years of bad diet can affect you in the future. I got to admit the presentation of the video is simple, straight forward, and first person view. From adult to baby.
