Book with Agoda, so you’re not ‘pagoda’ LOL


The pros of getting married in the province outweigh the cons. Perhaps the biggest challenge from my wedding last year was helping book 120++ people to different hotels around Bacolod City. That was when I discovered a service called Agoda c/o my wife. “Cheaper rates,” she said. Compared to other services, Agoda is mainly Asia-based and boasts the most number of hotels within Asia, which is its main point of focus.

Contest: Giving away a 1TB WD External Drive from our friends at Jollibee!


Hey readers! It’s contest time again! Who wants to win a 1TB WD external hard drive?! As you know, summer can be a bad month for your gadgets because of the extreme heat that bakes your already hot computers. So what better way to “sun block” your data than to back up with a nice fat (or NTFS haha!) storage solution?


An hour with the Samsung Note 8

abuggedlife samsung note 8 (Custom)

The Samsung Note 8 retails at PHP 23,990.00 for the 3G version. The LTE version is not available in the Philippines. If you are looking for a deal, the Note 8 is available for free on PLAN 1699 on SUN Cellular and it comes with a FREE Samsung Galaxy S3 mini smartphone!

I got to sit down at a quaint dinner as the reps from Samsung ran me through their new baby, the Samsung Note 8. It’s quite obvious where Samsung gets their inspiration (having been an Apple OEM) and as a market leader and Android poster boy in the smartphone and tablet segment, competition with Apple is stiff. The Samsung Note 8 borrows much from two predecessors — the love child between the Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Note producing an offspring that’s wee-in between the size of both devices and retaining the S-pen. In a nutshell, the Note 8 is an enlarged Note II (or a smaller Tab 10.1).


Zombie Friendster is back to play your games

So Friendster is back from the dead and they’re here to make you play online games.

Truth is, this is old news as the pioneering social network announced their shift from social networking into social gaming as late as last year. It’s only this 2012 that they’re making a huge marketing push bringing things like the “biggest gaming event” to SM North EDSA. I have some friends from the Level-Up eGames merger who will emotionally contest this claim.
