The MOA Eye

The MOA Eye
      I am scared of heights. Terribly scared. However, some fears need to be conquered. Most especially if you are planning to take on the Philippine's tallest Ferris Wheel, and I mean none other than the gigantic MOA EYE (Mall Of Asia EYE).

Coffee Art and More in A Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

Cafe Latte @ A Bag of Beans
     I have been a coffee drinker (and lover!) for as long as I can remember. Back in the days when coffee means just being black, I was already a supporter and a fan. I love coffee so much that I'm certainly not going to last a day without a warm cup of it to start my day. And so I do understand why some people need  to drive (and travel) that extra mile for their favorite blend. Well, as for me, the gang and I went straight to Tagaytay City, specifically to A Bag of Beans for our warm, rich and delicious coffee. Just perfect for Tagaytay's cool breeze. In A Bag of Beans, they don't just serve coffee, but every warm cup is a work of art...

Android Apps Free - For Camera and Photo Effects

       Do you have an Android phone?   I have been  in a relationship with my Android phone for a year now, and I must say that the partnership is just getting better and better hehehe... I used to joke about how I am married to  my laptop, and that we have two kids; my Kindle reader, and my Samsung Galaxy Tab, which is, by the way, an Android phone.  Anyway, what are your favorite free Android applications for your camera and photo needs? I am listing here some of the apps I like best, and if you want to try them out, you may download them from your Play Store.  Presenting you with my short list:

Captcha, gotcha!

      Is it just me or Captcha is actually for aliens? Before I start, please allow me to define what I cannot read (hehehe!).  The term CAPTCHA (for Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart) was coined in 2000 by Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, Nicholas Hopper and John Langford of Carnegie Mellon University ). A Captcha is a program that can generate and grade tests that  humans  can pass but current computer programs cannot (  When browsing or surfing the internet, you typically find a Captcha whenever a certain site wants to verify that you are indeed human by asking you to correctly identify a combination of letters and/or numbers that are garbled. And I dont mean simply garbled. The characters are actually garbled big time!

I wonder. Are you human enough to type the two words correctly? :D

How about this? I need your help, please :D

      Captcha's definition specifically tells us that humans, and not computer programs can pass  the test for validation. I wonder. Of course I am human, but why is it that I cannot pass Captcha's validation? Could I be lacking in the required intelligence or are they simply doubting that I am flesh and blood?   Hmmm..  Maybe I am just slow in the head. Oh, but I was able to sign up for this blog with Captcha allowing me to get through.  Yeah, right.  I am officially an alien;  part human (sometimes) and part computer program (oftentimes). :D

Fifty Shades of Grey

      Fifty Shades of Grey, the first book of a trilogy by E L James, is a New York Times Bestseller and is intended for mature audiences. There. Having said that, if you are under the age of maturity, this book (and this post) is not for you. Hehe!  But how old does one have to be in order to qualify and to be labelled as mature?  You tell me! hehehe!  The book is heavy on the errotic/sexual side of things and if that is not your cup of tea, then i have again presented a good reason for you to discontinue reading this. Ha!  Anyway, before i totally drive you away, here is my brief account of the novel:

Happy Father's Day!

      I've always been a Daddy's girl. And I'm not complaining. Being the only daughter (the youngest child having 5 brothers), I guess my father didn't have any other choice hehe...When I was younger, I would often hear my mom say "You should look for a guy who is like your dad; kind, understanding, humble, soft-spoken, etc.." Now,  do I blame my mother because I am still single for I haven't found that special guy who is like my father? hehe!

     Anyway, I've collected some of the nicest Father's Day quotes and placed them here for your reading. And before I close this very short post, allow me to greet all you fathers out there a very Happy Father's Day!

               I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection ~Sigmund Freud

Dad, you're someone to look up to no matter how tall I've grown. ~Unknown

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. ~Johann Schiller

Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad. ~Unknown
A king, realizing his incompetence, can either delegate or abdicate his duties.  A father can do neither.  If only sons could see the paradox, they would understand the dilemma. ~Marlene Dietrich

By the time a man realized that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.  ~Charles Wadsworth
