Seeing Casinos in a Different Light

How gaming establishments are helping make the world a better place?

Upon hearing the word “casino,” several people immediately attach negative connotations to it. Some deem it as an immoral place where people just waste their time and money, while others quickly judge it as a place that offers nothing more than a otherworldly environment. While it’s true that casinos are avenues for people who pay good money to spend hours playing slot machines and table games, not a lot of people know that these gaming establishments are about more than just the stereotypical labels that people have attached to them. In fact, today’s modern casinos can be considered unsung heroes of our society.

Choosing a Christmas Present for Her

Her message, “Christmas gift for me, bro!” And she was referring to a book entitled, “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” by Mitch Albom.


I was expecting her to ask something written by Tom Clancy, or maybe a classic one by the English poet and playwright, William Shakespeare or maybe the book written by Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani school pupil and education activist from the town of Mingora of Pakistan. Continue reading

My Personal Lazada Shopping Experience

It’s been a long time that I’ve been considering to own a portable powerbank for my devices. I wanted to have a reliable and yet affordable power bank. I settled with Lazada Philippines, now a fast online shopping store, for my portable power bank.

Even after comparing it with other online shopping sites, I felt it more comfortable buying from Lazada Philippines. It’s one of many ways in helping our local online retail companies boost our economy.

Just in five business days (November 30), I received my powerbank, paid it by Cash-on-delivery basis, the SSK 1100 mah Power Bank thru one of Lazada’s delivery services.  Continue reading

Travel for Leisure Ends

From my previous blog entries, you might be wondering of what the heck I’m doing here in Hong Kong. It’s neither a travel for leisure nor pleasure nor a summer vacation! You may say, “You’ve been here and there,” But honestly, I have been here and there! Cheung Chua Island? Lantau Island? Hong Kong side? Mainland? and Many other places! All are my first time!  Continue reading

Hong Kong: More Than Just A Good Place for Exposure

You may think that my educational exposure will be confined inside the school campuses only where I am supposed to stay. That’s what I thought at first, too! But indeed, there are other good places you can find worthy to visit while staying in Hong Kong.

This entry is all about my two-day adventure, an opportunity given to me by the generous people here at Saint Francis Xavier’s College in Kowloon. Thanks to Mr. Iu (Yo), the Vice Principal of the school, the Superior of the community and of course, the two SFXC boys who accompanied me for two days: Henry Yan and Steven Wong. Although I had my other exposures together with a Brother few days ago, this one is different. Continue reading

How to Get Lost in Kowloon

Simple. Don’t bring a map, don’t ask anyone and never mind where you are heading to. I got lost literally in coming back here at the community.

It was just fine going to Cheung Chau Island and coming back together with a companion. I trusted the guide since he’s been here for  quite a long time. I’m sure we never get lost. Besides, I brought with me the map which a brother had given me when I arrived. Since then I kept glancing at the map, studying each turn and landmark. But still not too easy to memorize some Chinese characters; abstract things to me. Continue reading

Drinking Bahalina is Good

Do you drink Bahalina? If you do, try to discover its good effect.

You might be wondering what is Bahalina and why am I talking Bahalina on this entry, LOL! Bahalina is a processed coconut wine, fermented and added with eggyolk and Pepsi Cola. I’m not promoting Pepsi Cola here, except that this is the kind of soft drink being added to it to make it bahalina. It’s still a coconut wine but a little bit sweeter than the usual. This makes you tipsy or drunk! But what’s the goodness in it then. Continue reading
