WD TV Live Review

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I bought a new Media Player/Streamer. Here's a little backstory why I bought a new one.

Two years ago, I bought a media player. The Verbatim MediaStudio HD DVR. It was a great media player and it still works perfectly up to this day. It did have one problem though, a problem that I didn't realize when I bought it. The damn thing can't play MP4 and MKV files which have become the standard format for compressed videos.

Birthday Splurge

Since it's my birth month and I just turned a quarter of a century old, I bought myself a few things during my birthday. A few weeks ago, I got my annual increase at work so I had extra money to spend/ use to pay for my card haha.

First was the Galaxy Note 2 which I bought 2 weeks before my birthday.

Then on the day of my birthday, I was at Megamall waiting for Gregory. He was at work and I was bored so I bought a few things I needed/wanted. I bought 2 books, Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger and Inferno by Dan Brown. I am a Dan Brown fan and I loved the Devil Wears Prada (book and movie) so I wanna read these books.

Birthday Gift: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Back in October, I posted about getting the Samsung Galaxy S3 through a plan upgrade on my phone line.

Well, goodbye S3, hello Note 2.

Birthday 2013

So I'm finally 25 years old. Medyo tumatanders na. Like I do every year, I threw a party with my close friends and officemates.

Disneyland Hong Kong

One of the reasons why I convinced my mom to go to Hong Kong was because I wanted to go to Disneyland again. I swear, if they opened a Disneyland here in the Philippines (hopefully somewhere near like Clark), I would be there 5-6 times a year. 

It is the happiest place on Earth after all.

Madame Tussauds Hong Kong

During our HK trip, Mudra and I went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Last time we were here, we weren't able to visit this place. I don't know why. I'm not even sure if this place was open by that time. It was my first time inside a wax museum and the wax figures looked disturbingly real. 

All the pictures are in my Facebook account, I'll just post a few here kasi ayokong mang-flood ng images

Hong Kong

So my mom and I went on vacation during the first week of May but since it takes me forever to update my blog, it's only now that I get to post about it.

Since January, my mom and I have been talking about where we'll go for vacation. Initially, she wanted to go on this cruise around several Asian countries. The thing is, the schedule of the trip conflicted with my work schedule because my boss was going to Canada for vacation the same time as the cruise and since one of us has to stay put, I told my mom I can't go.

I convinced my mom to go to Hong Kong instead because there were more things to do there and I missed Disneyland.

She booked a 5-day trip for the first week of May. Our flight was at 7AM at Clark airport. We arrived in Hong Kong at around 9AM.

I just love the Hong Kong International Airport. It's so sosyal. It's leaps and bounds ahead of our own airport.
