Gadget: Quik Pod – Every Picture Should Never Be Without Me

 Are you a victim of the ‘missing photographer’ syndrome?  Isn’t it frustrating to be the one ALWAYS NOT in the picture because you are the designated photographer?  Isn’t it annoying that you spent so much money on that SLR just to end up taking a back seat at those picture perfect moments? 

Fret not, for the Quik Pod is the answer to all your photographing woes!

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie (Literally)

Another shot taken from Tubod, my mom’s hometown. This is a picture of a neighbor’s sleeping dog.

Let sleeping dogs lie

From afar, I thought this was a sleeping person

Several questions come to mind after seeing this with my four eyes:

  1. How did the dog balance himself there?
  2. Is this a common scene in the province?
  3. Is this really a dog?
  4. Does anyone else find this oddly amazing?

When you tell someone to ‘let sleeping dogs lie’ it means you want that person to not interfere or disturb the situation to avoid complications, as how we shouldn’t wake up a sleeping dog lest we want to be bitten or growled at.


Retro Blog Entry: Trash Bin Murder

Warning: Not for the faint of heart, blog entry circa 2005


I witnessed a horrible crime last night… You would always think that bad things only happened to other people, but never to yourself. You would think that it would just be the stuff that you would hear about over the radio or watch on prime-time news, but never something that you would actually live through.

I can’t keep it in anymore! I need to share what happened… I really need to let this out. Keeping it would only make me even more restless than I already am. My friends told me to keep my mouth shut… Oh God, you know I tried to forget about it. For the sake of my friends, I’ve tried to shut out what happened… but it keeps haunting me… I’m driving myself mad… ARGH!!!

I’M SORRY GUYS… I HAVE TO CONFESS… I hope they’ll forgive me… for this betrayal that I am about to commit…

Through My Four Eyes

We interrupt our regular programming to bring you this not so important announcement…

After a long absence in the blogging scene, I have finally come back to wreak havoc once more on unsuspecting blog readers!

Err… who are you? Uhm… I used to blog at theSpoke under the name achiabs.

So, why are you here? Well, when theSpoke transferred to a new server, I was not able to register and move my entries into the new one in time, thus all my entries were deleted 😦

How long has that been? It has been approximately two years since.

Now, what made you come back? I recently started another blog, The Scrumptious Anime Blog, with my friend absolute0 and I’ve been bitten by the blog bug once again.

Who are you again? Oh, I’m Seleria and yes, that is not my real name.

Through your four eyes? Uhm… I wear glasses >.>

So, what now? We now return to our regular programming of Rare Ugly Sharks
