The Fault in our Stars

It started out quite normally - the Uber Pool ride. I was first to get on the car and I offered the expected pleasantries.

"Good evening po," I said. "Good evening sir," he greeted back. 

It's in the good human being code - to be nice and polite to everyone and to not be a burden to anyone. But if you're an Uber rider, you go the extra mile for the stars. Five stars, no less. A couple of fours would drag your rating down, and some threes could easily relegate you to the circle of the riders from hell who deserve being ignored, rejected or cancelled.

Voltes V is now on iflix!

Kids of the eighties rejoice! Well, the series ran during the nineties too (Disclaimer: I watched this in the nineties not the eighties), and there were more recent airings of the show on GMA-7. So why don't we all just rejoice, regardless of generation?

Voltes V is back, and now we don't have to be at the mercy of its assigned timeslot. Remember wasting precious morning sunlight because it was on? Or waking up really earning just to catch it? Or just being annoyed because the TV Guide didn't get the schedule right? None of that matters now because it is now available on demand via iflix!

Flying Home

Over the Chinese New Year weekend, I had the chance to do a quick home visit. While quick home visits are something I do all the time, it is my first time to do so on a plane!

I documented the flight and the result is the video above. Pardon the iMovie stock music haha. I realized that it is also my first time flying northward from Manila. So the usual seas and islands I see during flights to Visayas and Mindanao were replaced by mountain ranges and vast farm lands.

Rewatching Miss Universe 2015 (Part 3)

It's my third night watching this thing and oh my what a long Miss Universe show this is.

It's time for another Pia sighting, this time she's channeling all of us at awkward dinners when people go talk to each other and we cannot fake interest anymore so we just focus on the food.
