98°, our favorite soulful boyband and the songs we want them to play in their upcoming Ph tour

98° was one of the boy bands that breakthrough during the mid-late 90s. But as a 90s boyband, they were a bit different from the rest. They didn’t dance; they mostly relied on their vocal abilities to serenade their fans. The members are also more masculine and “big” compared to other boy bands’ members. Most notably, they formed the group themselves, wrote their own songs, … Continue reading 98°, our favorite soulful boyband and the songs we want them to play in their upcoming Ph tour

My boyfriend asked me to play Ragnarok: Eternal Love, and here’s what happened…

I’m not ashamed of it. I’m playing Ragnarok Mobile: Eternal love because of LOVE–at least during the first month.

The only reason why we should vote (from a cynic’s point of view)

Unrealized expectations. Broken promises. Cheating. Trusting and un-trusting politicians is like realizing you have come to your senses and have come from a bad place–only to have returned again and again. I know that we shouldn’t believe anything on the internet, but at this point in time, especially in the free media, the one making us alive are not just the readers, but most importantly, … Continue reading The only reason why we should vote (from a cynic’s point of view)

To be honest, I have not followed Catriona … Continue reading Hola, Catriona, my new bias and my thoughts to her winning answer

The Philippines’ decaying agriculture industry

I’m guilty. I’m blind. I’m unaware. I do not care. Barraged by my own adversities, vanities, fanaticism, goals, I forget about the bigger picture. Like the great dread of our plastic-impeded, corruption-riddled nation, a sector of our production is almost nearing its outmode, and that is Agriculture. In the 90s, Agriculture has contributed up to 44% of our country’s GDP, but today, it only accounts … Continue reading The Philippines’ decaying agriculture industry

Cheers to Humanity! Here’s a blockchain app that empowers IPs and farmers

I used to count more negative ways on how Technology has impacted our lives. I’ve always been critical of technology and its effects on humanity. Aside from the fact that it may be a bit detrimental to our health, productivity, abilities, and overall well-being, Technology has somehow led us to chaos and lack of self-awareness.
