A government vehicle with a plate number starting with "SFX" suddenly becomes "SEX" by placing the red plate sticker just at the spot where F will look like an E. A work of a genius and a very creative government employee. I can almost associate his work to Da Vinci's, really a work of art...... Continue Reading →
About the Picture Styles…!
Most of the DSLRs we have today have preset picture styles. For example, Canon has 6 preset styles that you can use in your photo shooting and 3 user defined styles using the preset picture styles as the base where you can modify the preset's Sharpness, Contrast, Saturation, and Color Tone. But wait... There's more!... Continue Reading →
Would you drink what he will serve to you…?
I don't mind having a half-naked person serving me a coconut "juice drink" who pays taxes and works hard for everything he earns under the searing heat of a mid-day sun amidst the smoke belching buses and dyipnis. Compared to those people doing nothing (and yet, have almost everything) wearing expensive "Barong Tagalogs" sitting in... Continue Reading →
2016: Year of the Red Monkey
According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the year of the Red Monkey will start on Feb. 4, 2016, though the Chinese new year is on Feb. 8, 2016. Why is the monkey red for 2016? Don't ask me, I'm not an expert in Chinese zodiac... 🙂 But no offense to those who rely on Chinese... Continue Reading →
“If a criminal is “allegedly manhandled” by the police, CHR calls Poseidon to raise tidal waves and Zeus to throw bolts of lightning. If the criminal is a woman, Gabriela prays to Medusa to turn every policemen (and policewomen for that matter) into stones.”
I’m unsure of what to say about the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) and Gabriela, a group that is defending the women’s rights.
If a criminal is “allegedly manhandled” by the police, CHR calls Poseidon to raise tidal waves and Zeus to throw bolts of lightning. If the criminal is a woman, Gabriela prays to Medusa to turn every policemen (and policewomen for that matter) into stones.
But if it was a police officer who was mistreated… I hear nothing but the silence of the lambs! I’ve been reading the current news and it appears both are very “hush-hush” on a recent event where a police woman has been unceremoniously painted in a rally!
I know why… But I don’t want to make a conclusion!
Manila’s Finest On-Road Laundry Service!
What else can I say... Some Filipinos really don't care about traffic rules and regulations! They even made the center aisle of our roads a place where they can dry their laundry!
The Mountain with the Burning Bushes!
Why do brains sometimes interpret a symbol differently from its original meaning? Believe it or not, what I see is a mountain with a burning bush on both sides of its slopes. Was it the way the symbol was drawn or the way I just focused on the symbol disregarding the other cues around it... Continue Reading →
The Colors of Manila Streets…!
Manila is always swarming with ambulant vendors but this vendor of pillows and towels along a road in Manila caught my attention...! In a day's work, the vendor may just probably earn about US$3 which is enough to buy her family a meal consisting of a bowl of rice and a handful of noodles mixed... Continue Reading →
The Sound of Music in Donuts!
Why do we call it a "donut"? Why not call it... ... A REnut? ... A MInut? ... A FAnut ... A SOLnut? ... A LAnut? ... A TInut? Better yet, let's call it DO-RE-MI-FA-SOL-LA-TI-DOnut!
