Real World Road Testing | Mazda SKYACTIV Engine Technology

I love driving, it’s one of the things a man can and should do once he is old and competent enough to. Sure, being chauffeured around may be ideal given the traffic and parking situation oftentimes but there is still nothing else like the sound of the throttle and that initial rush when you hit 60 after rapid heartbeats. Imagine my delight when Mazda invited myself along with my Geeky Nights crew to test out the new SkyActiv engines on their new Mazda 6s and CX5s! The newly redesigned engines on the vehicles our group tested allows the driver to …

Play Ice Hockey Now! | Manila Ice Hockey League

 Ice hockey is definitely my favourite sport, not only because it was predominantly the only sport that I’ve played since I was 12 years old (see photo above, the one on the left!) but because of the skill, practice, dedication, wits, and speed needed to excel at it. I mean, first you have to know how to skate, handle a puck, avoid getting knocked down by an opposing team, and then when the rare chance opens up when you can shoot the puck, you have to then defeat a goalie who takes up more than half of the net! Those …

A Pleasant Surprise | Converse

Earlier today, right after having lunch I noticed a box arrived for me. As I wasn’t expecting anything to be delivered, I inspected the package closer and saw that it came from Shanghai! Hey, this must be the package from my new buddy Jason! So I opened it up… Figured it was Converse sneakers (of course) and guessed they would be Chuck Taylor All-Stars just by gut feel. The weight was a little heavier than expected, I then thought ah, baka Jack Purcells…. Then upon closer inspection…

Nokia Lumia 1020 | Leave The Hulking DSLR At Home

The Nokia Lumia 1020, at first you look at the phone and it’s like one of those phones you’re not quite sure of. First of all it’s yellow, yes yellow! Which.. is kind of… let’s just put it this way who in their right mind would choose a phone that’s yellow? But honestly after how many days of use, the color starts to grow on you. Maybe it’s just refreshing after having black or metallic phones. Let’s skip the outward appearances for now as well as the other phone features because through the lens is where the magic really happens. …

Casually Sunny | Rushing To Lunch

  After a night of merrymaking, I completely forgot I reserved for lunch at Balesin’s “Fish Fun” (it’s a seafood restaurant on stilts where kids/kids at heart can also try their fisherman skills and have their catch prepared as their meal) So I haphazardly put these clothes on and was off to make it to my reservation, and shot a few of these photos while on the way!   The 9Five shades go well with the shirt, right, right? I also donned the shorts so I could easily pop into the pool when the temperature rises. Guess Shirt | bright …

Music Video Anyway | Why Monday?

//player.vimeo.com/video/82133075 The Glitch Mob – Can’t Kill Us from the glitch mob on Vimeo. Glitch Mob (three piece electronic group) is the type of music that makes you tap your feet, then slowly nodding your head to the beat, then when the song nears the minute mark it’s all over! Some might recognize their work from the famous GoPro commercials which used the tracks “We Can Make The World Stop” and "Drive It Like You Stole It". I’m not exactly sure what their genre is, but it’s what I can listen to repeatedly in the morning to get going, as a powersong when pushing …
