Waiting in a long line


This is one of the things that I hate the most. Waiting in a line and  kicking my bacpack bag using my toes a few inches forward everytime I  take a step closer to  the counter  to check in. It is like waiting for that booty call in the middle of the night but suddenly realizes it is not  worth. it Pardon the comparison. But yeah these does  not happen everyday so let's savor the moment!

Working at Co.lab Manila!

Me and Sarah Photo courtesy of Colab Manila 
I've always been curious about coworking spaces since one of the blogs I read almost everyday which sometimes I open more frequent than my own blog talks about this a lot. Now please allow me not to divulge what blog is it as the author might be flattered too much. But I was glad I met this author sometime last year. An entrepreneur in his own right,running his own online business, started pretty young & surviving in a foreign country! 

Co.lab Manila has 2 office spaces one in Pasig another is in Makati. During their January  #Jellyweek where they are open for a day or two for anyone who wants to check them out and offer their workspace for free, I took the opportunity to see it myself. Well the place is pretty amazing. No presence of stagnant looking and boring cubicles and workstations. Only couches, tables and lounge chairs. The ambiance is very relaxing like there is no presence of a dreaded boss! Well there is hardly a boss there because people who might be interested working there are mostly freelancers, part-timers and stuff. It is really amazing. It is an office that lacks the bad reputation of boredom and repetitiveness.I had fun talking with other guests who checked out Co.lab Manila as well. Most of them are graphic designers, layout artists and students. Check our  video  here


Photo grabbed from Wanderrgirl.com. Link is here
One familiar face was Sarah Meier, former MTV VJ who is a coworker at Co.lab Manila. What makes me interested the most is the idea of working in a place where somebody sitting just a few chairs away or next door is an app designer or a software engineer! You may be at some point get to chat with these people sharing some random or opposing  ideas. I work in the same company of seven years where I sit with my fellow officemates whom I've known for so long. While having them as friends is not bad at all you know it comes to a point where you chat the same stories over and over again. 

Coworking spaces give the people working in it a feeling of less-stressed workplace. One very interesting question we were all asked is "Dead or alive, who would you wanna collaborate it?" Don't even bother what my answer is... I still can't figure out and does not remember what I said that time! And I got so lucky that time I won in the raffle of the Unscripted book of Sarah Meier and Vicky Herrera. So guys check these cool coworking space out!

Binondo, Manila is the Oldest Chinatown in the World



Don't be surprised if you see lots of big red Chinese laterns in the malls and in the streets because this is in connection with the Chinese New Year this Jan. 22nd. Because of this let us go back to our boring errr... history class! Don't sleep this will not take an hour just a few minutes!

Our Chinatown in Binondo, Manila is the oldest Chinatown in the world, formally established in 1594. Of course that means a Chinatown outside China! It was a given as a permanent settlement for the Chinese people called "sangleys" to be distinguished with the Spaniards living from the walled city of Intramuros. Binondo used to be the centre of banking and financial community. As a matter of fact, Asia's one of the oldest stock market - Manila Stock Exchange was conceptualized along the Escolta Street. The country's first ever elevator was installed at Regina building which is still very "alive" today.

So there you go I invite you to drop by at Binondo.  See its dirt and beauty .

Back then when we used to be Provencianas!


Was surprised to bump shoulders with an old buddy along Aya Ave. She is Riz who like me came here in Manila more than 4 years ago for a greener pasture and we used to be a provenciana - newbie in the city, that is curious of a metropolitan life and does not know much of people. So young and naive that we took the liberty of exploring Manila and that includes errr... night life. She also stands 5 foot flat like me but you know, when the clock strikes 12mn on weekends we become 5' 3" or  5' 4"  depending on how high the heels we wore paired with some girly dresses and you would see us twirling in the dance floor and holding a light beer. 

One incident we can't forget was these 2 jerks who would not let us go. So afraid of what is gonna happen next we had no choice but to pass through the Fire Exit door, took off our high heels (we're back to five foot flat again!) and run as fast as we could to the nearest street not minding we are not passing in the designated pedestrian lane.

These jerks, we never heard of them after. But the way they introduced themselves and the way they look they have promising carreers - from educational to professional background and are serious hobbyists. Like it won't take a minute for them to get a girl. Except us.. we are good runners. 

We joked of going to that bar again for fun but just that our time won't match and one more thing... we're not  provencianas anymore.

Looking for a Virtual Assistant


Is SERIOUSLY thinking of hiring a virtual assistant to do most of my boring and repetitive tasks so I can focus on my more significant roles in life like doing my laundry, cleaning my closet and most of all find my missing eyeglasses! This task would need to have access to my Facebook, Twitter, my blog and its Facebook Fan Page and etc. Yay! It is like I am letting a stranger stay in my room while I am out! Well the task is pretty simple like copy-pasting links and comments, liking other Fan Pages and following new Twitter accounts, uploading pictures etc. This is however a short-time project only after I am able to fix my schedule and go out and make out.. that is make the most out of. So yeah! I am scouring directory of VA's where can I get one whom I can trust as these accounts are so dear to me. Wanna also knnw how much is the reasonable fee for them.

Come With Me to Laoag and Vigan! Jan. 23 - 26


Me and Annie from Canada I met in Couchsurfing in Intramuros
Vigan is one of the few Hispanic towns in the Philippines well-known for its cobblestone streets and a World Heritage site. So having said that and me being an "old-fashioned" or I rather call it as classic (para sosyal!) and loves seeing capiz window shells and heritage and stuff I decided to backpack to Vigan.  "You sure you are going there? There is no night life there. And I'm sure there is no chance of meeting hunks with flashy abs there. " says my friends. "That is why I wanna go there to get out of Manila's noise and pollution for a while!"   It is a pity that I haven't explored my own country before and I was inspired by strangers I met in Couchsurfing: Annie & Nathan - Canada, Jose - Spain, Mike - Switzerland, Mike - US, couples Carsten - Germany & Zorah - Taiwan, Andreas and his girlfriend - Denmark and locals too many to mention  but they've been to a lot so might as well start to scour and promote my own "neighborhood" through this blog and then after go out Asia then see the world. One trip at a time...

So here is the itinerary of my travel with the help of my friend Lyn and Couchsurfers Nathan  and certain TURTLETUNNEL.

Changes, Plans and Advocacy of this Blog 2012


“Shut this blog down Rona! You’re not gonna make more money out of it. Not many people are interested about this. Make another one and pursue your other interests like social media, internet marketing, and selling online blah, blah!”  says a fellow blogger. Two years of blogging which I rather call as posting-something-uniquely-fun-online is not a joke. I would be hypocrite if I was not quite bedazzled upon hearing the “make-more-money” stuff but then again I started this out of spur-of-the-moment passion. I cobblestone streets, capiz window shells and always intrigued about those Manila galleons that lurked hundred years ago! Yeah call me old fashioned, I won’t disagree ever!

So this 2012 I decided to make specific goals for this blog like a sailing ship in order to keep going should have a map to follow and a Captain clever enough to decide where to go to the spots that have lesser waves and when not to go too near the shore  or else… Here is my rough draft. Not really hoping by the end of this year all will be done but at least there is  something done!

1.       Trips to Historical Places
Though this blog is not really a Travel website but there is really a thin line between Travel and Heritage. Will scour Manila for some boooring errr historical places to post to remind our young generation that this decaying-slash-ugly-slash-not-given-attention-slash-again-slash-decaying-stuff is historical! Need to focus more within Manila as this author has a very tight as in spell tight work schedule.  Have some trips lined up:
                               
                                Vigan & Laoag = January
                                Cebu     = February
                                Bicol      = March

2.       Remember those boooring educational-slash-historical museums you are required to see in your school tours? You guessed it right! Will feature it because not so much of them are documented online.

3.       Local Climate Change issues  and advocacy against plastic bag use.  Nothing much to talk about it but will be soon.

4.       Random thoughts of the Author.
Noticed a good amount of positive responses and likes and comments and flattering words I receive whenever I post in my social media accounts  (I am a social media addict ssshhh!) a short anecdote, trivias, personal experiences (only the nicest ones of course)  so I will also add it here.

Ate, Pwede Pa-picture?



 Remembered this girl walking in a park while I was taking photos of the place I  did not really notice she was standing close enough behind me saying "Ate, pwede pa-picture?"  Me:  "Oo naman, Asan Mama mo?Then she points  her mom busy selling some kakanin from a distance.  I showed her the  photo, she become very happy after seeing her face ithe camera screen. When I got home looking at a few dozen of  nonsense photos I took, this one is an exception.

New Year Resolution 2012



While most of  our New Year Resolutions are like food diets  that only last for a month, I still think we should make one. Idoesn't matter if not all happened but at least once a year we were able to  assess our own worth, weigh consequences and dream again. It is like having a feeling of may-silbi-pa-pala-ako-kahi-papaano  and kung-kaya-nila-eh-di-kaya-ko-in moments. So guys keep on  writing and dreaming!

Come what may this year! I am up to  anything good of course. Life is only once to nottry anything you may wish just because you are  so scared  to make a mistake.
