Though blogging has already made a significant mark here in Cebu, there are still some niches that Cebuano bloggers haven’t explored yet.  One of this niches is political blogging.

Who among us haven’t heard of Climate Change or Global Warming?  I think most of us are aware of this issue but, not surprisingly, a lot don’t really care that much.  This, is because most of us don’t see this problem as a direct threat that should be acted upon immediately.  And with this kind […]

World Bloggers’ Day 2010

At first glance, the thought of initiating a worldwide event is like a vagary.  People are raising their eyebrows, some are pessimistic, and some don’t even give a deal.  The main point here is that, we successfully initiated something which would result to a global impact later on.  We don’t need to expect a lot […]

Katrina Halili, Hayden Kho and Maricar Reyes Video Scandal

The Katrina Halili and Hayden Kho Video Scandal Before anything else, I wanted to express that I really got nothing against these celebrities.  It’s their actions, not their individuality that I will be criticizing.    It just happened that they are caught up in a sex scandal that spreads like a wildfire.  And, for a […]

That left hook on Hatton’s right jaw…

Obama’s Assassination

I’ve been hearing people talking about this for a long time.  I and my father even had a long debate about this because I’m always in the skeptical side when it comes to this prediction thingy.  Everyone knows how famous Nostradamus’ predictions are, and some people tend to take it seriously, which I find very […]

This, also shows how narrow-minded most of us when it comes to […]
