An Eye for An Eye

leave a comment »

An eye for an eye leaves the world blind. A famous saying by Gandhi. I received an email from one of my mail groups today. It was about an article written by a Chinese in Hong Kong. And in the article he belittled the Filipinos. And called us “servants”. I know we are in a Third World Country (even that phrase sounds demeaning to me), but surely he should not have said the things he did. He was talking about Spratly Islands, and how the Philippines is also claiming some part of.

I read the article, and replied to our mail group. I regret some words that I said there. I also made a racist remark towards the Chinese and those selling their flesh in particular.

I should not have said what I said, but unfornately I did.

Search Engine Optimization

leave a comment »

Last week I had a good chat with my friend Gino who is now working in Singapore. He used to do Search Engine Optimization from a company we both worked for in Cebu. I think he is pretty good at what he is doing, so I asked him for some advice.

I have been doing Search Engine Optimization for 3 years now (or even more), yet I never wrote down what I have learned. I only have a general idea that, Content is King.

Keywords, Metatags, Title, all that adds up.

I think SEO (for Google) is pretty basic. You just have to do the dirty work. And it is painfully slow. But it will pay off.

I will someday write down some of the stuff that I have learned. But not now. Im too lazy for that. I mean busy.

We Joined Earth Hour

leave a comment »

MY girlfriend and I rode a bus home, from 7:30 or maybe a little past that, and we arrived home at around 8:35 because the stop is a good 10 minutes walk from our apartment.

When we opened our door we saw it was all dark, and we were greeted by the kid on the other door, saying “It’s Earth Hour”.

And so we remembered. I totally forgot about it. Even though Coldplay was playing a few miles from US. And Coldplay’s concert was supposedly powered by Wind Turbines. How ‘cool’ is that! 🙂

I registered for the Earth Hour as well. My macbook pro was already turned off, so we just hurried to her macbook. Lit some candles, unplugged our electronics, turned off our A/C and opened our windows. We’re glad it is not summer yet. The MidEast summer.

We are glad to be part of the event, though it looks as if most people in our area either did not know about it or did not care. Cos when we opened our windows, other people’s apartments are well lit. Well.

It was a bit sad. We are just 5 people there. But looking at there advert reassured us, that even if it was just 5 of us doing our share, across the globe, little number added up to thousands of people, maybe even millions. 🙂

They had nice adverts too, which you can find in youtube.

Oh it is work day again. Are you going on a vacation? Looking for a holiday?
