Compatible Phones for Pokemon Go

Looks like this is a lot of fun! How to play it?

Get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns where you live—and even around the globe—to capture as many Pokémon as you can. As you walk through the real world, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you’re near a Pokémon. Once you’ve encountered a Pokémon, take aim on your smartphone’s touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. Be careful when you try to catch it, or it might run away!

Like the (real) fictional Pokémon Trainers, every player’s goal is to collect all of the available Pokémon species which can be found in the real-world locations.  Ang cool! You’re like travelling between real and virtual world. Can’t wait to play it but!!! It is not available yet in my country (The Philippines!) but it’s coming very soon! So be sure your phone is ready when Pokemon Go is rolled out.

Pokemon Go supported devices, compatible phones:

ANDROID

  • Android 4.4 to Android 6.0.1 (Android N will not be supported until the official Android release)
  • Preferred resolution of 720×1280 pixels (Not optimized for tablet)
  • Strong internet connection (Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G)
  • GPS and Location Services
  • Intel CPUs are not supported. ARM chipset only.

iOS

  • iPhone 5+
  • iOS 8+
  • Strong internet connection (Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G)

I recently switched to a low maintenance handphone and have no plans in upgrading it any time soon. By low maintenance I mean call and text type of phone only with special participation of FM stations lol! PAANO TO? I wanna play this so bad!

It All Makes Sense Now

Now I know why I’m here long before anyone has told me to go through this path. Took me a long time to realize. But hey, it’s not too late yet. I am ready to embrace your plans for me, God. Let’s do this!

I used to say a lot that I WANT TO GET OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE and it did happen. May power talaga ang words…so I am now being very careful with every words that I say.

Traffic in Metro Manila is unbelievable! My everyday calvary. Grabe! Let’s decongest Metro Manila and start building office hubs in Bulacan, Batangas and Laguna, kahit as far as Bataan pa. Subic is nice!

Very happy that Duterte won! I wrote about him in 2009 when we went to Davao.  He really exudes power and authority.

There’s many things going on in my head right lately…one thing I am sure is that I AM HAPPIER NOW. I lack a lot of things, but then I lack nothing. Ang saya to be able to finally say this: IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW! Para akong naka-buo ng 100,000 pieces of jigsaw puzzle na abstract!

Favorite Youtuber: Kaye Cal

One of those few artists who, I believe, is underrated. She’s seriously good, she should be a regular on ASAP! Kaye Cal became popular after joining Pilipinas Got Talent (former lead vocalist of Ezra Band). Really like her soulful voice, so unique and it’s too deep for a girl! Take a listen:

And she plays the guitar so well! Wish I could learn a song on a guitar too. Maybe I should start investing on my own guitar so I could start learning, don’t you think? Time to browse web site guitarcenter.com for something that’s light, suitable for my frame and budget friendly.

Check out her covers on her Youtube channel. She has a few and they’re all good!

Fika Manila, Cozy Cafe Restaurant in Quezon City

Why hasn’t anyone told me about Capitol Greenstreet? Seriously. It’s such a fineee place for late afternoon coffee, very quiet while you get to enjoy the beautiful sunset, array of fire trees and beautiful landscape. The place is not well marketed and I like it that way! I lived and worked in Quezon City but never heard of Capitol Greenstreet until 2-3 weeks ago when I had the chance to eat at Fika Manila.

nullThis adobo is unexpectedly good. Ohmaaay! The best sauce in the world! I need its recipe! Hindi kami maka-get over!

Fika Manila Best Seller AdoboYummy barbecue! Akala ko sawa na ko sa barbecue, hindi pa pala. Huge serving! Not a fan of their sauce though.

Fika Manila Chopsuey Chopsuey! Sakto lang. I like that the veggies are crunchy.

Matcha smoothie with heavy whipped cream!

They also have cakes, brownies, cupcakes and coffee.

More than the food, what I really love most about this cafe is its quietness, coziness and relaxing ambiance. They play the most relaxing Filipino instrumental music ever! Good food + good music + overlooking view = awesome experience!

Fikå Manila
Ground Floor, Capitol Green Street
Capitol Hills Drive, Old Balara, Quezon City Philippines

How To Make a Viral Video?

Help! We are currently working on a project, the goal is to make it viral (we hope), rewarding and high-yielding. We’re looking at different options:

  • Music video type of thing, shot at a resort/pool area – similar to Justin Bieber’s Beauty and the Beat MV.
  • MV of a local artist singing acoustic songs.
  • Short and funny skit ala infomercial.

I a more leaning towards the second option since we only need to prepare a few things – improvised stage or recording room, acoustic guitar and a cool telefunken mic (suitable for voice on both stage and in the studio).


It requires fewer manpower too and it’s a lot less complicated to shoot and edit! My only concern is that it may look boring and may never get as viral as I hope it will be. God please let the creative juices flowing! Deadline of the storyboard is Friday already!

I Am a Success Now!

I AM WOMAN, I'M A SUCCESS.
Independent lang hindi bitter, ok? At medyo may pagka-defensive din hahaha!!!

Seriously, this is my declaration, from today onwards, I am a success!!!! Claiming the victory! I can and I will! No one can stop me from reaching my goals! POWER! ENERGY! COURAGE!

Random thoughts on:

HUMANITY: Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you #seenzoned. Di ako maka get over eh. It hurts. Kaya hindi ko na gagawin sa iba.

TIME MANAGEMENT: I haven’t blogged in ages! I hope to have more time in my hands to do things that I love – beading, cooking, travel, writing, etc.

LIFE: I badly need an automatic washing machine to live! And a machine that can fold my laundry.

TECHNOLOGY: To get a Globe postpaid or not? I’m not a heavy mobile user so I’m okay with prepaid but it is becoming too inconvenient.

MONEY: Overflowing streams of blessings. Walang makakapigil sa success ko!

FRIENDS: Thank you for liking my new profile photo LOL.

FAMILY: Always first! ALWAYS.

Last but not the least,

LOVELIFE: Kahit konting liwanag lang, please?

I cannot wait for the good things coming my way! Thank you God for igniting my passion again. I am alive, I have a lot to live for and I am a success!

I Am Php10,600 Poorer Than I was Yesterday

I was really hesitant to go on a trip to Bora because of many many reasons. For one, I think it’s overrated. Second, not budget-friendly eh. Third, I’d rather sleep. Fourth, eversince that dreadful day in Pug-os beach (Cabugao Ilocos), where I almost drown myself to death, I haven’t really enjoyed going to the beach anymore. Fifth, I am very busy. Sixth, budget talaga. Ninth, budget pa din. Tenth, budgeeet! It’s one very expensive island! Well honestly, kahit saan ka naman mag-travel, it’s gonna cost you a lot money. Even my everyday travel to work is expensive — Php254 (that’s 5,334/month). Ughhh!

Anyway, I’m half glad, half sad that I said yes to Boracay. It was a fun experience and if I can, I’m definitely going back. Kaso lang when I look back and review my expenses…whaaaahhhh I WISH I STAYED AT HOME TO WATCH/SLEEP/EAT INSTEAD. Haaaay now I am Php10,600 poorer than I was yesterday!!!

Mas Matibay Ang Dalawang Sinulid Kaysa Sa Isa

Oo nga naman. Muntik ko nang makalimutan. Mas mahirap maputol ang dalawang sinulid, at mas matibay ang tahi kung dalawang beses tatahiin. Yun nga lang, higit na mas mahirap i-shoot sa karayom ang dalawang sinulid. Nasubukan nyo na?

Parang electric fan lang din, mas malakas kapag nasa number 3.

My 2015 So Far

A so-so year so far, so what??!! Regardless, I am thankful for a lot of things. For one, I AM STILL ALIVE!

Funny how I met and lost and found and lost you again.

Love and hate relationship. Ginusto ko naman ‘to so yun na nga, embracing it.

I am 100 miles away from my comfort zone!

Undoubtedly, DU30 is my president. Miriam coming in at second. Who’s yours?

Met a lot of new friends for keeps.

Traveling solo soon! Sana out of the country, at sana lang kayanin ko. Although for the most part of the day, I am very independent, I am also very very clingy. Charot.

And yes, just like everyone else, I also watch KalyeSerye. Jose Manalo is super funny!

Lastly, I AM BACK! Ang busy ko kaya, hopefully, it wont take another 8mos before I can blog again.
