Nokia 808 PureView

Nokia just launched its feature phone, the Nokia 808  PureView at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona.  I think this is a very good move by Nokia trying to win back old fans like myself.  The most obvious of those features is the massive 41 megapixel sensor and Carl Zeiss lens and then turn it into a detailed 5 megapixel photo and just imagine one of your favorite iOS apps oh well, let's say Instgram - your Instagram stream will never be the same.  It also runs on the latest Symbian OS, Belle.

Tagbilaran Rooftop

Sometimes we forget how beautiful home is and for the past ten days, I looked at Bohol with fresh new eyes.  Often times it takes visitors and guests to remind of you what is simple and yet beautiful at the same time.  Simple is not always beautiful and beautiful is not always simple yet when these two aspects converge they bring a force that will take your breath away.

Yesterday I get the chance to take a couple of friends a tour in the nearby towns of Dauis and Baclayon and man was I fascinated.  Warning, photo overload after the jump.

A Walk To Remember

I could not seem to recall when was the last time I visited the K of C drive.  The K of C drive is a place for friends, lovers, broken hearts, sunset lovers and some more.  The place used to free, now they are taxing two pesos per head upon entrance.  Vehicles are not allowed anymore inside (except for vendors) and there's a cottage rental at 100Php.  As I approached the gate and asked the lady when did they start asking for fees, she replied 3 years ago.  Has it been that long?  I could still remember we go down and take a dip in its waters when we were bored during a hot summer afternoon.  I could still remember running in the midst of the street and shout, "the hills are alive..." even though there were no hills around us.  I could still remember us cousins playing a "seesaw" in the water using a "salbabida".  Ours were made from patched up old truck tires.  I could remember our eldest cousin as he swam further and further into the horizon and wished I had the same courage to brave the waves, the current, the seaweeds and to whatever that lurks below these waters.
