I was checking my gears (e-ticket, camera, url/irl kodigo’s, and map direction). Hmmm what else? I think that’s about it. But wait! I don’t know anyone there…What will I suppose to say to them,?

“Hi I’m yours” este “Hi I’m Geri pala of” My intro to one of the lady blogger at the venue. 😀

11am, I was preparing to go to the BLOGPARTEEH07, I was checking my gears (e-ticket, camera, url/irl kodigo’s, and map direction). Hmmm what else? I think that’s about it. But wait! I don’t know anyone there…What will I suppose to say to them,?”Hi I’m yours” este “Hi I’m Geri pala of” My intro to one of the lady blogger at the venue. 😀


Not knowing anybody, I’ve walk around the place, everybody’s quite busy. Bloggers are now piling up at the registration, gotta find a seat now and be comfy. Found a nice table (the lucky table) at the corner with a nice view of Buendia Avenue. Have my seat and wait for bloggers to fill-up the place and for the program to starts.

Several hours later, were already 7 on the table, Liz and Shari,then Joni, then came Eugene , from out-of-nowhere came Ganns

and lastly to seat with us is Mae a.k.a. Kim Chiu lol.

After myself won the Bingo and Eugene won the raffle, I told the other guys/gals on the table. “Hey! I think this is a Lucky Table! I’m predicting that everyone of us will win tonight!”

And yes, you’ve guessed it right! My prediction happens! We all won prizes that night. I’ve won not just once or twice but thrice hehehe. (Bingo, e-ticket, raffle). I think some of my table mates also won twice. Unfortunately none of us take home the major prizes, but what the heck, it was a swell party indeed, everyone is having a shibbytastic time, yummy foods, nice musik, lively crowds and of course lots of freebies too. (Not to mention I gulped 4 San Mig lights 😀 )

But sadly all of us went home without a Krispy Kreme Donuts 🙁

(yun ang di ko na-predict, hehehe)

My Lady Luck continues even when I went home, because I’ve had the chance to rubbed elbows with a cute chick in front of the FX that I rode.

(babaw ko noh!!! pero I swear, crush ko siya, grabe!!!) 😆

Nice catching you guys/gals. Thanks also to the organizers/sponsors/donors who made the BlogParteeh07! Hope we do this more often – Summer Beach Party07 perhaps 😆

Abe – Nice meeting you sir, and tnx 4d mug



Yes it’s really FREE. Not just 1 but 10! Ten (BRAND NEW) desktop computers and computer peripherals to each of the 1,100 public high school beneficiaries throughout the country (Philippines), which remain to have no access to computer education. (more story here…)

Electricity is one of the basic requirement for a school to be a beneficiary of this donation from the Government of Japan. It means even if the school is on top of the mountain or on an island as long as there’s electricity.

I was one of the fortunate persons to be involved in this humongous project. We were sent to inspect the computers, see to if it have the right specs, and if it’s functioning well.

And yes! we were assigned to go to Tuna-Balibago National High School. (A school in Talim Island, Cardona, Rizal) Whoaaa!!! I hate big bodies of water!!! Wahhhh!!!

We board a 20 footer motorboat at Pritil,Binangonan,Rizal. Glad that it was a sunny weather that day. The boat by the way also served as an ambulance for the island community. We were cruising much faster than other boats, and the lake is not that wavy except for the portion where they called Navotas yikesss!! were in between two big mountains, the water is much rougher and deeper there.

After more than an hour of travel, seeing different sizes of fishpens, we finally reached our destination. The quiet and clean community of Balibago, we then walk towards the school, we seldom see townfolks roaming around except for some carpenters working nearby.

We are happily welcome by the Principal, teachers and some students. They’re eager to see the PC running and are excited to have their “hands-on” the units. After eating a delicious snack they served to us. We start assembling the units, checking, and putting stickers to each PC.

After lunch, all the PC’s were up and running.You could see the teachers delight in testing the computers. They will also be trained in using it and also some basic
troubleshooting. We share them some tips. Do some signing on the papers. And after that we bid them goodbye. Hoping that this technology will bring development and prosperity to each and every one at Tuna-Balibago National High School.

All the PC’s have Pre-Installed Softwares:
Fedora Core OS (hope the kids are ready for these…also the teachers 😀 )
Open Office Ver.2,
AVG 7 Anti-Virus
Wikipedia/Britannica Encyclopedias


Dispose a motherboard?
Nahhh! WASH THE MOTHERBOARD!!! Yeah you read it right! Wash it with soap and water!

This is what a cool dude does to his dead motherboard after having lots of hopeless opinions from some technicians that his motherboard is already broken, dead and beyond repair.

He got himself a JOY dishwashing soap, a toothbrush, and together with his motherboard he goes to their sink and starts to bathe and scrub the broken, dead motherboard with soap and water.

After that he hangs it for two days to dry, and then he also blow-dries it to ensure that all parts of the clean motherboard are dry. Put it back to his computer casing, attached all the cables back, power it on and VOILA!!! THE MOTHERBOARD WORKS!!!

note: it only works on dirty mobos, water-cleaning is technically contact cleaning… mobos with defective chipsets, bloated caps, scratched surfaces and major physical defects cannot be remedied by this procedure…
