Manny Pacquiao vs Brandon Rios in Macau

Image
This is one of the most exciting event this year after Yolanda tragedy. Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao dedicated this fight for his fellow Filipinos and victims of the said killer typhoon. Few days ago, I saw a 'news confrontation' of the boxers' coaches, and tension rises...

[caption id="attachment_8514" align="aligncenter" width="448"] I don't have a photo with Manny but here's a collectible :)[/caption]

According to Freddie Roach, Manny trained so well and his intensity to fight is really high. I've read that this is his first major international fight to be held in Macau (Sand's Venetian) which is one of the most famous gambling destination in Asia.

Since the venue is very near in the Philippines, I guess many celebrities and personalities are now in Macau to watch this exciting Pacman bout even former England soccer star David Beckman (saw it in the news yesterday) is present to support Manny!

The need of a mobile device charger

Image
We love to accessorize our gadgets with new cases, screen protectors and pouches but let's not forget that we should also carry a mobile device charger like a powerbank or any external battery that you can charge with a usb cable and get a power source from it (and recharge the battery to your laptop).

Why you need one? It's a must for traveling people (like me), students and anyone who needs extra battery power in case of emergency. These mobile power banks can be your savior, as it charges your phone anywhere you go. Also it charges digital cameras, MP4 players, and a lot more. So you will not spend a lot of money to buy separate batteries for each devices.

These items are categorized according to any kind of device. Simply scroll down for additional option and search according to its type, size, power and battery capacity.

Conquering my fear of heights at Willis (Sears) Tower in Chicago

Image
Acrophobia according to Wikipedia is an extreme or irrational fear of heights. Yes, I am fear of space and motion that's why I hate going up from a high place or looking down. I get easily tripped when getting down long stairs that's why I hate riding MRTs or taking the stairs. The last time I joined this tree planting project in Antipolo (Philippines), my knees were shaking while we walked through the side mountains.
