Benny’s here.

WordPress Version 4.0 is here, otherwise known as “Benny” honoring the jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman. This version, while not exactly major but feature-wise of course welcome, is focused on making it easy for you to write and manage your blog, the embed content preview being my favorite. Check out the video below for more details on Benny.

Trying out Hyperlapse from Instagram

Instagram’s Hyperlapse app is currently iOS only, download it here. I have to agree that this time lapse video app is for the rest of us shaky snapshooters, it did stabilize what would normally require a tripod setup or steady hand. Video of EDSA/Guadalupe snapped while in my car’s passenger seat, edited with PicPlayPost to add Swedish House Mafia’s In My Mind (Axwell Mix) intro, applied with Instagram’s Moon filter.

Marital status of the confused


Like most interviewers’ routine, every time I get to talk to aspiring agents for our telesales and special projects campaigns, I’d ask straightforward questions that are meant to bring out the honest details that are sometimes missing, or excluded (intentionally or otherwise) in the submitted resume or filled-up application form.

But recently, of all the applicant details I’d focus on, it’s the civil status that I’d ask more about, that’s because most applicants won’t reveal their marital status unless you ask. Strange that this is not unique to female applicants, yet “single” seems to be the common response among applicants with live-in partners, even those already with kids.

Curious, I’d ask why and applicants will be quick to explain that there’s really no space or option for “with live-in partner” in our application form. And some would reason out that it’s easy to get passed the initial screening when you’re single, and a few said there’s an added pressure when having to explain their complicated relationships during job interviews. The rest just say as long as they haven’t signed a marriage contract or had a church wedding, their best bet is the single status.

IGersManila x Certified Calm

Last Saturday 02-August-2014, IGersManila, along with select Instagram’ers, was invited to a mini-photoshoot by Certified Calm, a yoga-centric store at Two Parkade, BGC, where you’ll find premium fitness gear from trusted brands such as Manduka, Lorna Jane, ToeSox, Easyoga, Onzie, Yogitoes, including Klean Kanteen–the original stainless steel BPA-free water bottles–our main subjects for the day’s event.

Thanks to fellow Instagram’er @kenncolubio for introducing us to Yovi Valenzuela, Brand Marketing Manager for Certified Calm, who took charge of welcoming our community to the store and orient us about its products perfect for those with active lifestyle.


Located at the seemingly quiet corner of 30th and 7th streets in Bonifacio Global City, Certified Calm is a hub for yogis and yoginis not only for its popular brands on offer, what with half the store area easily converted to a yoga studio when the wheeled stalls are rolled away and display shelves are covered with mirror dividers, but also for its wide range of fitness products under one roof, from mats and towels to active clothing and footwear, as well as workout essentials such as bags and drinking bottles.

Kurt’s SONA assignment

Our printer at home’s busted and my son Kurt messaged me if I can have his assignment printed, which I did, but I can’t help but read his piece on the recent SONA (playfully wordy yet point well taken), and asked his permission to post here:

The State of the Nation

The OS X Yosemite public beta 1 is now available for download

That is, if you’re one of the first one million users who signed up to the OS X Beta Program, as Apple’s been sending out notification via email this morning.

When Apple announced OS X Yosemite–the new version of its operating system that powers every Mac–slated to succeed OS X Mavericks this coming October, the OS X Beta Program was also introduced, giving customers early access to Yosemite to try out the release and contribute to its development by submitting feedback. So as soon as the preview registration was open last June, I signed up.

Game of Thrones S1-4 recap in 3 minutes

I haven’t even finished reading the first book and I only got the chance to watch the TV adaptation over the weekend (up to the last episode of Season 2), but as if I’m not already hooked, I found this fan-made video recap of Game of Thrones, that mishmashes the highlights of the series in about three minutes, mixed perfectly to Lorde’s rendition of a TFF classic – “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” – now I’m excited and is looking forward to another sleepless marathon this coming weekend.

Gadget-shopping for good vibes

On the lookout for premium powerbanks, protective cases, stylish bags, and gadget-whatnots? Fulfill your gadget lust and wake up to good vibes.


If you’re itching to go gadget-shopping, then head on over to a Digital Walker nearest you (my favorite store for the latest mobile devices and accessories) and spend at least PHP 5,000.00 (or you can accumulate your receipts until August 15) to get this cute, yellow-bright, limited edition Digital Walker Espresso speaker.

Now that’s the perfect accessory for your easy morning serenades while on a coffee or tea brewing session.
