Hey guys, back to reality! This post is long delayed. Sorry about that. If you want more real time updates, I’m almost always online on Twitter (@jayvee) and Instagram (@jayveef).
Anyway, we’ve been working on a huge event — it’s basically Year II of SNUPS, the biggest underwater photo competition in the Philippines. Now, you don’t need to be a professional photographer to join. There are categories suited for beginners as long as you can bring a camera down 2 feet with tupperware (you’ll be amazed with the things you can find — after all it’s the Philippines!).
In this case, we took the iPhone 4s down. Have a look at the video and share it with friends who may be interested! =)
Three months ago, there were reports of millions of sardines mysteriously appearing along the reef of Pescador Island in Moalboal, Cebu. There were mixed reports — some had said the sardines had been there for years while others say that this is a “now” phenomenon. Net of it all: recently, divers from all over the country made the journey to Moalboal to experience millions of sardines dancing and shimmering amidst the blue backdrop of the ocean.
Last year, I partied at two of Winston Damarillo’s events. The first was a geek cocktail night at M Cafe and the second was the grand launch of Mor.PH, his umpteenth project. I honestly stopped counting – in the same way that I stopped counting the shots served during his latest 08.08.08 (at 8:08 PM) launch.
Winston says that engineering is a creative process. I wholeheartedly agree. I enjoy listening to Winston demystify the stereotype engineer as Jonathan Coulton’s Code Monkey.
Simply put, after you work here:
You can hang out here:
The geek bar or tech bar concept is a social project – a functioning bar with Nintendo Wii’s (I also peeked at a few devs playing Rock Band), projectors, dedicated 10MB connection, drinks and seats. It ultimately serves the purpose for engineering downtime to reinvigorate the creative process as well as a full functioning venue for geeky events – they can stream live to Cebu, and can ultimately be the new cool place for satellite product launches. They are opening it up for events.
This is the second tech bar in operation. The first is located in Cebu.
The Tech Bar venue is located at:
5th Floor Orient Square Building,
