Tacloban's spider cab

The spider cab is one of the means of transportation in Tacloban City. Unlike the traditional Motorcab for Hire (MCH) or popularly known as tricycle which follows a particular route, the spider cab can take you anywhere in the city.

You don't have to worry about the fare because this taxi is not metered like the ones in big urban areas. Like the jeepneys and tricycles, they follow a special fare metric issued by the LTFRB.

You can take spider from the airport and ask the driver to bring to your hotel.

A cup of coffee, a newspaper and my notebook

A cup of coffee at my favorite coffee shops. A copy of the latest newspaper or magazine. My notebook with Windows Live Writer. These are my tools in blogging. Without these things, no blog entry will be published.

I have been blogging for more than two years now. I manage five successful blogs with different niches. I owe it to a cup of coffee, a newspaper and my notebook.


Tacloban seminar features US veteran photographer

A Digital Photography and Photoshop Seminar is scheduled to be conducted at the Asian Convention Center along Real St. Corner Avenida Veteranos in Tacloban City on January 26 - 27, 2009.

Mr. Orlando Uy, immediate past president of the Leyte Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that this is a very rare opportunity as it is not often that such a seminar is offered in Tacloban City.

Moreso, Mr. Uy said that the participants will have the chance to learn from an expert as the resource speaker, Mr. Dave Fowler, is a veteran photographer from the United States holding degrees in Master of Photography and Master Craftsman.

In this seminar, Mr. Dave Fowler will share his favorite digital photography and Photoshop techniques. For each image he shows, he will offer a tip or a technique. The techniques the participants will learn will be worth more than the cost of the entire program.

Mr. Fowler has been in the photography business for over 30 years. He entered his first print competition in 1991 and earned his Master of Photography Degree in 1997 and his Master Craftsman Degree in 2001. With the exception of two "scenic" images, all of his print merits came from customer files. Fowler has had two Loan Prints, one EPCOT Center print and one of only 36 images accepted for display at the 1997 International Photokina Exhibit in Cologne, Germany.

Mr. Fowler started working with digital in 1997 scanning proofs and doing special effects for seniors. Since that time he has graduated to being a full digital studio. The studio does an average of 150 seniors per year …all digital.

The seminar will cover basic and advanced photography on Day 1. A workshop on Outdoor shoot will be conducted towards the end of the day, Mr. Uy said.

On the second day, the participants will learn how to use Adobe Photoshop for photo editing, Mr. Uy further said.

Every participant is required to pay the registration fee of P3,000.00 inclusive of lunch during the duration of the seminar.

The participants are also required to bring digital camera and jacket or raincoat for the photo shoot.(PIA 8)

This is one of my favorite chillers of Gloria Jean's Coffees. I never miss to order for a cup of this one during hot seasons. Try it for yourself!

Every Filipino has a role to play in making aspirations for the country come true

Every Filipino share the same wish for the country to surmount the threats of global economic crunch and continue to tread the path to economic prosperity so that every Filipino family will be able to experience a better and peaceful life.

As the year 2009 is still new and New Year's resolutions are supposed to be made by every one, it is hope that each and every Filipino will write as one of their resolutions that of doing their part in the fulfillment of the common goal for the Philippines.

For the country to ward of the global economic threats and really continue its economic development, it is prayed that the detractors will include as one of their resolutions that of uniting with the Administration in matters affecting common good.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has always wished, and this is also the wish of every Filipino, for the economic reforms to redound to the economic upliftment of every Filipino – more food in every Filipino family's table, better access to quality education, more opportunities to good paying jobs, easier access to basic social services.

The President is wishing not only economic prosperity for each and every Filipino. She is entrusting the country under the care of the loving hands of God. She is hoping to give dignity to every peace-loving and patriotic Filipino.

It is only in unity that the country will be able to triumphantly ward off the global economic crunch that is threatening to affect the country in 2009.

It is only in unity that the government will be able to make good the programs and projects aimed at cushioning the impact of economic crisis and make people really feel the fruits of the economic growth that never before was made possible.

It is also in unity that the elusive peace the country and its people have been wishing for will be achieved.

This wish will only turn into reality if and when each and every Filipino will do his or her share in making this dream for the country come true.(PIA 8)
