Charlie Chaplin Time Traveler Video - True or Viral?

An 82-year old film clip from a Charlie Chaplin movie premiere appeared a woman passing through and talking to someone on a mobile phone? This is now an online sensation and have gone viral.
A film organizer from Belfast, George Clarked claims to have discovered this puzzling visions, Take note that this flick was shot in 1928.

Whether this black and white film is a form of viral or still, many have thought that this device is a 'hearing aid'

or

A Time Traveller, who really knows?

In reality the picture appears to be of a hearing aid which in the 1920s had the same general shape of cellular phone today, something you held up to your ear rather than the innocuous inserts that elderly people use today. Siemens invented hearing aid devices in the early 20th century. The photo below is their 1910 model which is a storied part of their history. The clumsy hearing aid went through several early revisions including the popular 1920 model.

World-Class talent, International publicist - Joyce A. Ramirez

Now, you'll never be left behind when it comes to your favorite international tv programs like Lost, Entourage, Hawaii Five-O and many more.
Why? Because, our very own Ms Joyce A. Ramirez is now making waves as an international publicist. You won't believe if I'm going to reveal that she was selected as one of Seattle Best Coffee's 10 Best Customers and included in "A-List: 100 Filipino Luminaries," showcasing the best and brightest Filipino public figures that garnered international achievements.

Currently, she's been helpful to promote The Amazing Race Asia Season 4. I've been told that she's soon hosting her own travel show. Wow, why not?

“I am hesitant because I am vain and not sure if I am telegenic enough to pass my own personal screen test,” she laughs. “There are women who are stick thin in person but looks fat on TV plus I am used to working behind the scenes so the change is quite nerve wracking! So let’s wait and see.”

A Drink Called "Bad Trip"

Image
Overcrowded. This is the best description of the venue. They have several branches in Metro Manila. The prices of the drinks were cheaper compared to any bars. But what I observed was the lack of ventilation (even the portion is open air) and crews were too busy even they forgot you until you'll call another crew to follow up your order.

For the first time, I've tasted this kind of cocktail drink called "badtrip," oh hindi ka naman maba-badtrip afterall, it tastes so good.

Its a mix of vodka, white rhum, gin and juice. I've researched online and its a bestseller!

They also have Mojito, Squeeze me and Bad Girl (feminine version, lighter drink version of Bad trip)

I haven't tried their foods, maybe on my next visit :)

"The Social Network is to Facebook, PLDT myDSL modem+wifi is to unlimited mobile internet service"



"Dominance of Social Network"

Facebook has largely dominated the internet. It is the most dominant funnel to news and information sites. This is why most search engine are creating and continuously developing their own news pages.

It is not all because of the socialization, relaxation or pastime that it gives to its users. There are a lot of ways that Facebook is useful for internet people. For website owners and e-commerce, the social networking site is a powerful traffic source.

Now, Facebook is now stuffed with innumerable information, making it a primary source of anything. Anything that you want to know is found on Facebook. It is now the fourth-largsest of traffic for media, competing against Google, Yahoo and MSN. Whether we admit it or not, it seems that they are buying the top position, to be named as the ultimate media source. And it is not impossible.

At first, I didn't know the exact location. But through browsing the map and thorough understanding of the landmarks, fortunately, I was able to search the place with no worries. Honestly, I am really good in following directions but always I get lost when the place am heading to is MAKATI.
The exhibit was full of memories. Tons of photos, album record awards, even toys and comics collectibles were displayed. I was very lucky enough to volunteer to cover the last day of the exhibit. Later in the night, people came in and I was surprised to witness this gathering because it was really different. There were group of young people who were able to perform street dancing, that's awesome! I was able to capture their moves, I'll post the videos separately.

Pre-Christmas Shopping Experience at SM Cubao

Image
Cubao, is one of the busiest area in Quezon City. It is considered as one of the most important commercial area in Araneta Center along EDSA and Aurora Boulevard (Wikipedia). I remembered during my childhood days that Cubao was considered the most famous shopping center in Metro Manila.

I was surprised upon entering the Cyberzone area, whew! It was totally different from the last time I visited SM Cubao (which was years ago! The basement area was used to be a foodcourt and arcade zone).

Well, I also thought of this is the FIRST DAY OF OCTOBER and I missed the Beer Celebration!  (SHOPPING is the first thing that comes to my mind today, Sorry Friends, Till next beer time!)

I was about to go home when I decided to drop by at SM Cubao to check on  the Sale.
Luckily, I was given an opportunity to shop because it's pay day!


We rushed at the ground floor and checked the sale on digital gadgets.
Cool, prices were dropped until I decided to choose this -
