I was excited when I heard New Era would finally have a collab with Dragonball. Though a bit disappointed that the turtle school and four star designs were not available in the PH (hopefully they would be released in the coming weeks) the only ones available were Son Family (Blue), Kami (Black), Picollo Daimao in purple, and the New Era script in DBZ typeface. Grabbed the next best thing which was the Daimao cap. Here’s to hoping they release the turtle school, crane school and capsule corp logos in the future.

Beast of Possibility

The Beast of Possibility

"Humanity alone possesses a God. The power to transcend the now... the inner God called Possibility.'"
I finally managed to finish a Gunpla kit display for the first time in a decade. The last one was for an entry back in the 2007 BAKUC. (Later renamed as what is now known as GBWC). Placed the unicorn on the ms cage base from another kit and placed the laplace box as a base.

The Geek's Guide to Dating

Geek Dating

There comes a time where geeks grow out from their larvae of pop culture, action figures, video games and comic books to a different reality that includes a world totally foreign to them, the world of dating. Enter Eric Smith's entertaining 208 page guide as he shows the geeks how to gain more confidence and be more comfortable with the opposite gender.

The book is filled with a ton of pop culture references to better "adapt" through certain situations how tough or akward it may be. Definitely a fun read whether you're single, in a relationship or married. Because there is always a geek in all of us!

Milo Marathon


The Milo Marathon was one of the races I initially tried to avoid in my early running years due to the strict cutoff times/ time limit, participant volume (starting line queue counting against the time limit) and road closures (traffic going to venue). But those are just manifestations on how prestigious the event really is. Everyone is out to prove his or herself to the point that they are risking their lives (hence medical certificates / clearances are now a requirement for registration). But then again it is every filipino runner's dream to go and participate in this event. I went to the 10k category where there is a friendlier cutoff time. But the tension was still there as participants are lobbying for nearer starting positions and cramping at the starting area (the collected body heat makes you dehydrated even from the start). The thought of cutoff gives additional anxiety and pressure to push further even though you already know that you were on pace to make it. A lot of runners are serious and not taking selfies on the road. In the end I made it through the cutoff with a lot of time to spare and was so happy to finally join the most prestigious running event in the country. It was a 10k run that felt like a 21k run and I treated it as such (preparation, pacing and even soreness wise).
