My First tour at Lingayen–Province of Pangasinan

I already blogged about Pangasinan Digital ICT Congress at Phil IT Org website to support our President, Bam Amor and shutout to the everybody  that Phil IT Org’s head was invited to be a resource speaker for mobile development overview.  Pangasinan Digital also invited our Board member – Henry Hutalle to discuss  cloud computing. Aside from the two resource speaker, John Remir Cueto our Public Relations Manager and Mac Vasquez our Board Member were also joined the Pangasinan Digital ICT Congress to cover the event and support Bam and Henry’s talk.

Pangasinan Digital ICT Congress was a week-long event and started from November 21 to 25. The two Phil IT Org Officers were scheduled their talk on Thursday but they leave Manila on Wednesday early morning because Pangasinan Digital Organizers provided  transportation from Manila to Lingayen, Pangasinan.

This was my story on how I abled to went in Lingayen, Pangasinan. I want to join Phil IT Org’s team going to Lingayen but on that same day (Wednesday), the other half of the Phil IT Org team (where I was assigned) will also joining Adamson’s Technology affairs. Before that, Bam, John Remir, Mac and yours truly were attended an IBM technology workshop in Makati City. John Remir and Mac leaved the earlier the workshop to prepare their things going to Lingayen. Bam and I, stayed until the end of first day of the workshop. We stayed for a while at Burger King at Glorietta and waiting for Mac. Per Bam, the shuttle will be at McDonald’s Panay Avenue in Quezon City to pick-up them. Mac already meet us at Burger King and they went ahead to Quezon City. I was accompany with Mac and Bam going to Quezon City because my way going work was same where the go. We ride in MRT (Metro Train) at Ayala station.

While in the train, Bam and Mac invited to join them in Pangasinan, but I said, no guys because the fare going to Pangasinan is to expensive and yet yours truly have to go at Adamson University to represent our Organization. Bam answers, no there is a bus provided to us going to Pangasinan. Ok, if the organizers allow me to join you guys so lets go as I said to Bam. Bam contacted Marlon De Guzman of Solid Hosting (one of Pangasinan Digital speaker and sponsor ) and told that I joining Phil IT Org team going to Pangasinan. No problem with that as feedback by Marlon to Bam. Ok so let’s go to Pangasinan. “Naipit lang ako sa MRT ayan tuloy nakasama ako sa Pangasinan”

We stayed first at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and Eton Centris in Quezon City to have some coffee and check our emails and Facebook. then around 11pm we moved at McDonald’s at Panay Avenue and wait for the service provided by the organizer. We met Jinkee Umali, Creative Director of Live Life Fullest and Calamba Online, she also a resource speaker for website design, tips and tricks. We talk and got bonding for a while, around 1am in the morning of Wednesday the shuttle service already arrive. But we still waiting for two invited resource speakers Azrael Coladilla and Coy Coballes- Head, Globe Telecom Social Media. Around 15 minutes later, the two speakers already at the pick-up point.  We leave Manila around 1:30 am, we take rest for a while at the shuttle while on the road trip. around 5:30am in the morning, we arrive at Lingayen, Pangasinan and we stayed at El Puerto Marina Beach Resort and Spa near Capitol of Pangasinan.

This the part 1 of my travel adventures in Lingayen Pangasinan.  Thank you to all Organizers of Pangasinan Digital ICT Congress and to Honorable Governor Amado Espino, Jr. for accommodations provided to us.

BUM holds fashion show wit COSPLAY as THEME

Local clothing brand BUM brings the Cosplay trend to the fore with a one-of-a-kind fashion show at the SM Mall of Asia.

If you have a story to tell, don’t keep it to yourself. Flaunt and let the world know through fashion.

adslide

This has been the youth’s battle-cry these days. Not only are they daring, wearing their colors on their sleeves proudly, they are pushing the envelope when it comes to dressing up, as well.

Even the term “costume play” or “cosplay”, which is the act of dressing up as a fictional character inspired from an anime TV series, or a character they idolized, has found its way into the youth’s wardrobe. Cosplay is no longer a style but it has become a “trend” that is normally seen and worn on the streets.

To underscore this “daring” and “experimental” style philosophy, BUM is putting together a fashion show on November 25 at the Music Hall of the Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

Called Reveal Your Darkside, this fashion celebration is the culminating event of an ongoing nationwide contest. Since August 8, BUM has been receiving through its website (http://www.bumequipment.com.ph) countless entries from young stylistas who want to share the world their passion for the brand and the cosplay trend.

Interestingly, the fashion show will also showcase BUM’s new collection for the Holidays. So cosplay and BUM fanatics can expect a one-of-a-kind fashion event that would inspire them to express their angst, passion, and identity more freely through BUM Collections. Mall goers will enjoy BUM’s treats as early as 1pm with live games on screen. Shoppers can play live video games at the Music Hall venue and win fabulous prizes courtesy of our sponsors Netopia Internet Café and Ideal Vision. Register as early as 1pm and get a chance to win prizes in our event raffle such as NOKIA C1 cellphones, five (5) pieces of P500 GLOBE prepaid loads and BUM gift packs. Raffle draw will be held at exactly 6:30pm. BUM products are available at BUM Boutiques and leading Department Stores nationwide.

HTC Sensation XE and HTC Sensation XL Launching

Got an invitation for Ardent Communications for HTC product launching  in the Metro on November 11, 2011 at awesome Party House in Pasay City.


But before the launching I want to know more about this two HTC phones, So I did a research for this two HTC models.

The HTC Sensation is a smartphone designed and manufactured by HTC Corporation that runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread software stack. Officially announced by HTC on April 12, 2011, the HTC Sensation was launched by Vodafone in key European markets including the UK on May 19, 2011 and by T-Mobile in the United States on June 12, 2011 (marketed as the HTC Sensation 4G). It was the first official HTC phone to sport the HTC Sense 3.0 user interface. The Sensation was code named Pyramid during development.

SoftwareThe device shipped with Android 2.3.3 and includes HTC Sense 3.0 UI.
The device is a part of a new generation of HTC phones that have a signed bootloader. As a consequence, the phones have not been rootable, thus denying users administrative rights to their own phones.The HTC Sensation was initially released with a locked bootloader. Since announcing on July 10, 2011, all HTC Sensation and Sensation 4G have had its bootloader unlocked due to the overwhelming customer feedback since the device's initial release.

On July 29, 2011, a tool named Revolutionary was released by AlphaRevX and unrevoked which can enable S-OFF, and subsequently, allow permanent root. Since August 2011 HTC officially allows to unlock HTC Sensation bootloaders at HTCdev.com website.


HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio
On September 14, 2011, HTC released the Extreme Edition (XE) of the HTC Sensation in Europe under the name HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio. The Sensation XE provides the following performance improvements: Dual core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz (up from 1.2GHz on the stock Sensation), a 1730 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) OS with HTC Sense 3.0. The Sensation XE features Beats Audio support, and can be easily recognized from its red speaker, buttons, and rear camera, and the Beats logo. Located inside the box is also YourBeats earphones, a renamed and redesigned iBeats headphone.[13] While the HTC Sensation is often compared to the Samsung Galaxy S II, one of the competitors of the HTC Sensation XE is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE.




HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio
On October 6, 2011, another special edition has been released with Beats Audio, called HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio (XL stands for extralarge). This version features a 1.5 GHz single-core processor—different from the original Sensation and Sensation XE, and has slightly different specifications, including a larger screen (4.7") although the resolution has been reduced. Two editions of the HTC Sensation XL are released, the only difference in which the limited edition is shipped with Beats Solo HD's while the normal edition is shipped with the in-ear earphones of those on the Sensation XE.
