Erin, Vanie, Mabel, Dada

Day 1:
9:40 flight to Coron
11+ Arrived at Apartelle Gabrielle
Lunch at Centro Coron – Adobo kambing, grilled liempo and tuna steak – all must try
3:30 town tour
Park – Reclaimed area near market
Municipal Hall
Town church
Mt. Tapias – 750 steps. 30 mins climb. Scenic and perfect view for sunset
Maquinit Resort – hot spring that flows to open sea.
Kasuy Factory for best kasuy pasalubong
Santino’s Grill for dinner, nothing special
9:30pm back at gabrielle

Mt. Tapias sunset view followed by a dip in hot spring resort – Maquinit. I was surprised that it was a salt water hot spring but nonetheless it didnt stop us to enjoy and take a relaxing stretches after the climb.
Kasy factory offers a slightly higher price for their products. They are known around travelers, thats why. If budget restricted, kasuy are also available in the market for lower price.

Day 3: Wet most of the time.
6:30 Breakfast
7:30 left Coron and started our boat ride to Malcapuya. 1.5 hrs away.
First stop at Bulog Island, Banana island – because of their a lot of coconut tree according to a bully tricycle driver, Malcapuya Island.
Banana Island has the best snorkeling spot while Malcapuya has the best accomodation. Bulog island on the other hand is a good place to stay away and be alone.
12:00 lunch by the boat. We opted to have our lunch while traveling back to camalian group of islands instead of staying in Malcapuya. Time is precious for us since all destinations for 2 day tour is compressed to just 1 day.
Atwayan beach and skeleton wreck is next on the list. Skeleton wreck is a good spot for snorkeling as well.
Twin Peak and Kayangan Lake is a must see beauty as well. Kayangan Lake is within the protected areas of Tagbanua, tribesmen here in Palawan. A quick painful, stressful climb must be conquered before reaching this hidden paradise. So peaceful and calm. Fresh water to wash all salt water from the whole day tour is a refreshing experience.
5:00 back at the hotel
8:00 dinner at kawayanan grill. Exotic crocodile must try. Garlic pasta as well.

Day 4: Sun Kissed
9:00 marinated danggit for the last time
11:00 ATM hunting since we are already running out of cash and most ATMs are offline
12:00 Back at Centro Coron to try more kambing dishes but I chose pansit instead.
1:00 Landbank saves the day. Withdrawal at last!
2:00 Enroute to Francisco Airport in Busunga.
Played with kids to pass time.

QA work-week-day-out

Posted in outing, Uncategorized, weekends with tags , , , , , , on February 17, 2013 by abetgonzales

Feb. 6, 2013

With Netsuite’s best QA’s, we went trekking at Taal.

Assembly time is around 4:30 – 5:00 am so we can be at the crater at around 8, when the sun is not too hot yet for walking our way up. But with all good fortune, I woke up 15 minutes before 5. I have to prepare my things, take a bath and walk/ride to RCBC. I arrived 2 minutes before 5. Late comers will have to buy coffee for everyone, 22 cups!

We took a boat from Talisay to Taal. It was a smooth sail. Then we arrived at the shores of the volcano. To our surprise, we are at an island not too far from what we believed as Taal Volcano. Thanks to misleading books and post cards.

Going up to the crater is really a deadly challenge. With burning heat of the sun and not enough water. I remembered trekking to Anawangin. It was actually a nice experience. sweating it all. But what I hated is my passing out when I reached the top. I should really work on my cardio and boost my stamina. All in all, I really enjoyed the view up there. I never thought there can be such spectacular place near home. It feels like I am a total stranger at the lake where I actually grew up. I love the view, fresh air, calm breeze, steady clash of waves at the shore. I am at home 🙂

Going down, I rode a horse for 2 reasons. One, experience because I never rode one before and its a perfect timing because of the second reason, I passed out going up. Thus, rode it to be sure I would be able to enjoy the rest of our day-out.

On the boat going back, best waves for adventure seekers but not for the faint-hearted. The waves ridiculously crashed into the boat because we are directly heading opposite the wind.

Then we traveled back up to Tagaytay and headed to Taal Vista for lunch. So much for working out and tiring ourselves trekking, we ate  until we are all full. It was a buffet so I actually can’t tell how much I ate. After eating, we go out for a walk and the club actually has a good spot for over-looking at Taal.

After taking a lot of pictures at Taal Vista, we go out of way just to be able to buy some pasalubong at Sonya’s Garden. I thought it was overrated. They actually served good cookies and pastries but I think I wouldn’t go out of way again just to be at Sonya’s. Unless maybe if I’m coming from Nasugbu and it is actually on the way.

After Sonya’s, plan was to go to Nuvali but it changed when we stopped over Rowena’s for more pasalubong. They thought about going to MOA for dinner and having KTV after. But all changed again when we were stuck in traffic and we all felt tired and exhausted.

We just headed back to RCBC, part ways and call it a day.

*thanks to Pao and Gelo for the pics!

All my bags are packed

Im ready to go

Im standing here outside your door

I hate to wake you up to say goodbye.

I was definitely not a week that anybody would hope for. I was a week packed with so much stress. Stress coming from pressure and expectations. – And other stuff that might be very political and definitely something not to be disregarded but negligible enough to care less about at this moment. At this point in time.

You wouldn’t experience the best in life if you wouldn’t go through all pain and sufferings.

I couldn’t agree more but it’s just so much to take all in one instant.

I need a break after all this. Who wouldn’t want it?

I need an outlet at least.

Nine-year-old writes iPhone code

Lim Ding Wen

Lim Ding Wen started using a computer when he was aged two

A nine-year-old Malaysian boy in Singapore has written a painting application for the Apple iPhone.

Lim Ding Wen created the finger painting program, known as Doodle Kids, for his two younger sisters aged three and five.

The program allows iPhone owners to draw images on the handset’s touch screen using just their fingers.

The program has been downloaded more than 4,000 times from Apple’s iTunes store in less than two weeks.

While most children of his age are painting or drawing with crayons, Lim Ding Wen has been programming.

Lim, who is now fluent in six programming languages, first started using a computer when he was two-years-old, discovered programming aged seven, and has since completed more than 20 programming projects.

His latest application, Doodle Kids, allows users to draw pictures using their fingers and then clear the screen by shaking the iPhone.

“I wrote the program for my younger sisters, who like to draw,” said Lim. “But I am happy that people like it.”

Lim wrote the original application on his computer but has now adapted it for use on an iPhone.

He told The Electric New Paper in Singapore that he wrote the application in just a few days in Pascal.

Go on my son

Writing on his website, Lim’s father – Lim Thye Chean – a chief technology officer at a local hi-tech firm, who also writes iPhone applications, was modest about his son’s achievements.

“Ding Wen is an above average boy with an interest in computers, especially Apple IIGS and Macs, likes to do programming, and that’s it.

“Doodle Kids is an extremely simple program that can be done by anybody. Everybody can program – if Ding Wen can, so can you,” he wrote.

Lim Ding Wen is now working on a sci-fi game for the iPhone called Invader Wars and plans to join his school’s robotics club.

how would you react on this one?

ako? ewan, napatigil lang ako for some minutes then: “frustrating!”..
