Pisonet Mania

Yes, since I am indeed from the Philippines, then, I must say that It's More Fun in the Philippines! Why, imagine nowadays that anywhere in the slum areas of Metro Manila, you can find what is called cheap internet machine - the Pisonet.

From the name itself, Pisonet is literally a computer mounted and assembled in a wooden safe box where a timer is the one that determines how long a player sitting in the seat in front of the machine will be using it. As per observation, I saw that Pisonet is a 4-minute use for your 1 peso meaning, if you rent a 15 pesos, you will be given 1 hour of use of the machine.

Floyd Mayweather won and lost

Yes, it was all over the internet and news websites. Floyd Mayweather won over Victor Ortiz, the champ. Another belt to the collection of the undefeated chicken when talking about Manny Pacquiao fight. Yes, my title says it, Mayweather won and lost.

He won the belt but lost the respect as a sportsman in the middle of the ring. He might even have lost a slot to fight the true down-to-earth champion and best pound for pound fighter, Manny Pacquiao who despite the many boastful blurbs of Floyd (Gayweather according to neighbors and Pacquiao bettors) remained humble in his words.

Pet Shop Hopping at Cartimar

Pet Hamster
I've always loved having pets around and I've experienced getting myself in to taking care of a hamster (small rodent rat with very luscious fur). I have also taken cared of an orphaned stray cat back in 1979 when I was in elementary school in B.O.E.S. I've tried having a monkey as a pet too and I've failed taking care of a snake because mom won't let me. Today, I am on my way to shop and hunt for pet shops here in the Philippines, particularly in Cartimar, Libertad, Pasay City.

At first I didn't know how to get there but when I learned from a college friend that it is pretty easy to get there especially if you just take a ride at the Lgith Rail Transit (LRT) and embark on a trip to Cartimar station in Libertad, then you won't have to have problems with how to get there. I live in Caloocan City and the LRT station here is just 5 minutes with a trike and 10 to 12 minutes by walk so I have no problems.
