StopOver: Aloha Bar and Grill

07/22/2017 11:55:32 PM


In the outskirts of San Antonio, Makati near the PNR line and just in front of a police station, the words “The Collective” would always ring a bell, but the infamous B-Side would topple them the most. Unless you are a frequent visitor of PADRE, Wingman, and the now-closed Ukulele Philippines.

But apart from the mentioned, there are lot of stalls that comprised The Collective, and one of them is named as if there's Hawaiian vibe that exists in this archipelago.

Make no mistake about it: Aloha Bar and Grill may have installed that sunny-like atmosphere and be relatively small just like those known music bars. But they are one of the underrated nightout spots in the Metro, located at the farthest (and hottest) corner of TC.

Snappy Rebuttals to Stupid Taxi Driver's Excuses

Since time immemorial na lang yata naglipana ang isa sa mga pinakamalalalng problema sa larangan ng transportasyon sa lipunan – ang tahasang pagtanggi ng mga taxi. Siguro karamihan naman sa atin ay minsan nang nagkaroon ng engkwentro na ganito. 

Nah, ako nga tinanggihan ng halos 20 taxi nung may isang araw na kailangan kong pumunta sa BGC para mag-cover nun sa isang event bilang blogger. At hindi lang ito nangyari sa iisang lugar. Sa dalawa pa nga eh.

Yung iba, nuknukan ng pagiging arogante pa kung tumanggina as if isa na siyang demigod at deity ng katrapikan sa Metro Manila. Yung ilan napakabayolente. Yung iba naman, dinaan na lang sa bait para hindi halata ang pagdi-diva nila.

Sa sobrang kakupalan ng ganitong aktibidades, sarap tuloy gawin ulit yung biglang baba ka na lang ng taxi – at hindi mo isasara ang mga pinto nito. (Oo, 'ulit' kasi nagawa na namin yun dati at walang halong pagsisisi yun. Tangina niya eh.)

Ito lang ha? Pare-pareho lang naman tayo nagkukumahog na kumita sa araw-araw. Pero kailangan mo ba talagang manlamang ng kapwa mo at hihirit ka pa ng “keso ano naman gawin ko? Magnakaw?!” (sabay labas ng crowbar o katana). Mga tsong, hindi dahilan yan. 

At please lang, kung gusto niyo na pagkatiwalaan kayo ng publiko sa halip na patulan namin ang mga TNVS, huwag na huwag kayong tumanggi ng pasahero, at baka mabara lang namin kayo sa alinmang isasambit ng mga gaya nito:

Ride No More?!

07/17/2017 09:35:22 PM

Isa sa mga pinakamahalagang bagay sa isang bansa ay ang pagkakaroon ng isang sistema para sa transportasyon ng tao. As in mass transportation ba.

At para sa mga nag-aaral/nagtatrabaho/naggagala sa Kalakhang Maynila, malinaw na isa ito sa  mga pinakamalalang problema na may karugtong pa na sakit na ulo – ang trapiko. Imagine mo no? Mahirap na ngang sumakay, naiipit ka pa sa lugar na iyong kinatatayuan.

At dahil lagi na lang puno ang mga jeepney, bus, at ultimo mga tren – sinamahan mo pa ng maraming maaarte na taxi driver, talaga nga namang ang mag gaya ng carpool at TNVS na lanmang ang nakikitang solusyon rito. Kaya nariyan ang mga gaya ng Uber, Grab, at ultimo ang Angkas.

PlayBack: Stereodeal - New Jersey

07/07/2017 06:15:58 PM

Mid-June turned out to be the very first time I encounter the stompboxer's band called Stereodeal and it was just in time for the launch of the music video of a song that is so emotional in the part of the singer-songwriter-guitarist.

A lot of gamers would obviously know what this band really offers. Vic Viper,  known for covering lots of game sounds and scores, was in the country late last year. And they hit PADRE inside the Collective on the rainy night in December as part of their Philippine leg tour.

PlayBack: Banna Harbera - Sorrys & Goodbyes (music video)

07/07/2017 05:38:52 PM

It's a rainy day on a raining soul like yours, and probably the playlist will go on pouring like the water from up there and the ones from your eyes and glands. Just when you thought that music can be deceiving by making sad lyrics danceable like pop, some soulful blends will make you cry and remind of how demise of a relationship can be so bad that you have to look at the brighter side. 

Just like this music video that may look partly-colorless and too slow-paced for most of the time. However, they are just showing the exact figurative displays on their emotions.

SAWFT?!

07/07/2017 02:21:54 AM

It's been two weeks since this happened on WWE's flagship program Monday Night RAW. And this might sound like a double cross candidate since the SHIELD in the 2014. But somehow, there's something beneath the lack of execution and its aftermath.



However, this made me think for a second: Big Cass and Enzo split up? This might look not well in the overall picture. Did this happen too early or too soon?
