Tech Updates via Ovi

When I want instant access to tech news, I find myself typing and hopping over to Yugatech for Philippine technology news and reviews. A fellow Atenean, Abe Olandres has been officially "Yuga" since 2005, albeit starting 5 years back.

So Yugatech it is. And his updates can be yes-no-meh but it's still new news, hence, the update :) But no doubt, his is one opinion across the web that Pinoy techies adhere to.

Ready for 2011?

If you're like me, planner-hunting starts the last few months of the year so appointments and plans can already be written down for January next year. If you've tried the planner from a popular coffeeplace, they've allotted spaces for December of the current year and January of the year following next, very convenient.

Sometimes, we find that the planner we want is not available, may be too expensive, not in the color we like, the paper is so so, or maybe, we're just in the lookout for something more after our own heart. Do check out this planner featured by Dash over at Pieces of A Wunderkind's Mind. She's even giving out one, and two more cutesy items, to make sure you're ready as a bee come 2011!

The Kikay in Me

Each day breaks at 4:30, a morning in darkness. I hurry for breakfast and pack for lunch. Oops, it's 5:15! Have to dress for work NOW and make do with crackers and caffeine again. Sigh.

In my white overalls, I'm on the road at 6am. I have to be earlier than my preceptor. By 6:30, I've clocked in. Inside the complex at 6:45. At the dressing room is Peachy, my O.R. alter-ego.

Me, myself and I.
By 7am my suite must be clean, with complete equipment and supplies, and ready. Darn, I'm missing my cautery machine. I have to dash and find one!

Solo honors Larry Alcala's Slice of Life

*thanks to Roy for the correction*

Does Slice of Life ring a bell? For me, it does. 

It reminds me of Sunday afternoons lazing away with a newsprint magazine on hand and poring over cartoons looking for a face I've never seen in real life. Yes, you guessed it - Larry Alcala!

Solo, a brand known for hip vintage merchandise, gives tribute to Larry Alcala, the legendary editorial cartoonist and illustrator, and his much-loved works via the Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia collection.

To view the entire Men's collection, click here.

Win a GE X5 from Yugatech!

Seriously, I want to win a GE X5! Really!
"Bless me, Father, so I can win an X5.
We'll take better pictures in the afterlife."
Circa 1979 Baptism at the old San Pedro Cathedral

The GE X5 from General Electric is an affordable and capable point-and-shoot camera with manual controls. It has a range finder, is encased in a hard plastic body and looks like a mini DSLR with large extending lens. It has a built-in flip top flash. The focal length of the lens is from 27mm to 405mm (35mm equivalent) and extends to twice its width. It has an internal storage of 18mb but can use an SD of up to 16gb. This baby uses 4 x AA batteries and will dip your bank account by php10,995.

Win a Nokia 3720 from Manila Fitness!

A cellphone that you can handle without care? This line caught me from a review and I thought this cellphone would be perfect for people who are always on the go or exposed to the elements or in constant activity. I was not wrong.

Hail the Nokia 3720 - the ultimate tough phone. Manila Fitness, the sports buff and yoga rat counterpart of the Manila Blogs Family, is celebrating with the other 4 blogs (Manila Reviews, Manila Blogs, Manila Shopaholic and Manila Mommy) in their 5th year on the web by giving away one!

Win a Nokia C3 from Manila Blogs!

Manila Blogs, a member of the Manila Blogs Family dedicated to newbie or aspiring bloggers, is celebrating with Manila Reviews and is giving away a Nokia phone too!

A few easy steps while you're online and logged in to your Facebook account, and you're in the running to one new Nokia C3 from Manila Blogs.

More about the Nokia C5

Manila Shopaholic, from the Manila Blogs Family, is celebrating with Manila Reviews by giving away a Nokia C5, right?

If you're like me, you can't help but ooh and aah at the beauty of this prized catch. The Nokia C5 will definitely take your breath away. Just look at this eye candy of a phone...

Win a Nokia C5 from Manila Shopaholic!

Manila Shopaholic, from the Manila Blogs Family, is also celebrating with Manila Reviews by giving away a Nokia C5! Woot!

This phone is perfect for the kikay shoppingera. The style factor of the Nokia C5 won't let you down.

Win a Nokia 5230 from Manila Reviews!

The Nokia 5230 seems to be a gadget after my own heart. Its touchscreen features will allow me to scroll without fidgeting with buttons (needs some getting used to though, as my old Treo's screen is quite small but very responsive). I can be a music, camera and game whore at times. The 3.5mm audio jack would lend connectivity with my headphones. Extra storage of up to 16gb of microSDs would be perfect to store music and pictures! This baby is Symbian 60 so apps and games are bound to be stored here too. *evil laugh* And for posterity's sake, 2megapixel of fun with 1600x1200 pixels and VGA video is more than decent considering you're on the go without the need for another device.
