Go Crumpler shopping this January

The holidays are over and you must have bought or been gifted with a brand new phone, a shiny tablet or a sleek notebook computer, and now you’re looking for a matching bag that will let you carry all these gadgetry with you, in style. You of course don’t want...

It’s a feast at Fez!

Our waistlines seem to be the benchmark for setting New Year’s resolutions, having failed to resist gluttony, what with the many colorfully-delicious and mouth-watering dishes you only get to see and taste during the holidays, leaving you a happy tummy but feeling guilty plate after plate.

Thank you!

If there’s one thing I’ll never ever forget from last year’s #IGnitePH (IGersManila’s 13th Philippine Instameet and Yearender Special) it’s having been presented with this surprise tribute video and watching it for the very first time (with each moderator getting a special plaque) – it’s like the culmination of everything...

Offline from Instagram’ing

Yesterday, we went offline with IGersManila, for the very first time. While we’re overwhelmed with the support we’re getting from around the world, we all know more help is needed to make sure relief efforts are directed to those affected by super typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan. We have been doing the #9pmhabit daily...

At the Mobile Festival 2013

I’m usually 7:00am pronto at the office every Monday, that’s because I chose a car plate number banned until 7:00pm in Makati City every first day of the workweek, the same reason that pushes me to be early at work and avoid missing the almost always busy Mondays. But yesterday...

Instagram’ing soon on a Windows Phone

Sorry BlackBerry, but it looks like Nokia beat you to the queue, as Instagram is officially releasing “in the coming weeks” a version of the hugely popular photo-sharing app for the Windows Phone mobile platform.
