Steve Jobs Passed Away Today

steve jobs death

” Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

The founder of Apple company,  Steve Jobs passed away today according to their website and from the press release of the Apple board of directors, he was known to be battling from pancreatic cancer. He was just 56 years old, survived by his wife, Laurene, and four children.

I truly admire his humble beginnings that today made the personal computer and animation to it’s best quality. Apple products are really different from the rest, simple design yet the quality is impressive. Also when he created Pixar animations it make CGI to it’s best and made story telling everyone wants to see.

This would serve as my remembrance about Steve Jobs and  may he rest in peace. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories, and condolences, please email

Surrender Any of Your Old Jeans and Get 25% OFF on Your New Pair of Jeans

Just Delivered Jeans

Last week I’ve thought on how to get rid some of my old jeans that don’t want to fit in my waistline anymore. I got a size of 28 before but am getting bigger now so it’s 31, yeah! I can’t believe it either. first thing came to my mind is to give it to my “labandera” or sell it. my hesitation to give it to her is that if the jeans would not fit to her son, selling it is just plain unrealistic for me to take all my time shouting or whatever.

One booth in SM Calamba catch my attention with the poster design, a dark and grunge theme that tell me to surrender any old jeans and get a 25% off on the new pair of jeans. then I asked the lonely booth attendant for the mechanics, she’s a girl by the way. I’m the first one to ask I guess, when i saw the empty metal cage like those used as shark cage.

The inquiry begins and I find it the the best solution to get rid of my old jeans that it would be given to the less fortunate through the SM Foundation and handed over to DSWD for distribution where I know a lot of people can benefit. One of the booth attendant took photos of me as the first to avail the promo. I gave my email and still waiting for the photos anyways here are some terms of the mechanics.

  • only 3 pair of jeans of any brand surrendered a day that starts on Fridays until Sundays.
  • purchase any day within the promo period.
  • the 25% discount only applies to regular price and should not be used with other promotions.
  • only one coupon for every pair of jeans
  • purchase must be made inside  the SM department store of  the participating brands.
  • women’s jeans can be surrendered but only denim jeans for men can be purchased.

Just Delivered Jeans Coupons

The next day I returned to SM Calamba and  surrendered 3 pair of my old jeans but bought only 2 pairs of new Rough Rider Jeans (RRJ) Today I surrendered again 3 pair so I got 4 unused coupons. Again I noticed I’m  the first one to avail the promo as the ladies in counter told me, they’re calling their supervisor for the  clearance code of the items. I left them for a while to get the replacement of my temporary SM advantage card, for the reward points.The long wait is worth it when I returned  to the counter, it’s cleared for approval. If you want to buy some new jeans I’m giving away this coupons, you can contact me on how you can get it.

Back To School Again

Back To School Totes!
I been busy this months or whatever you call it, I say its interruption that keep me sane. It’s been a while that I got NO blog post for this reasons. The school year started last June and I got a teaching load in college about desktop publishing using Adobe InDesign CS5. Also I’m back again in the Graduate School to finish it having 3 subjects left. Sundays are probably a rest day but it’s not I guess with other things to do that pops out.

It’s a balance of work and life, I think theres a Work-Life Balance for Dummies
about that which I have to read again and again. I’m enjoying everything but the greatest enemy here is “time”, yah! time to do everything I want with speed. I’ll try to read a book that can help me overcome it.

So thats it for now, I havent posted yet the photos I took last Sunday, it’s on my flickr page anyway. See yah!

May 21, 2011: Another Impending Apocalypse

Apocalypse, originally uploaded by kirainet.

Will May 21, 2011 be the end of the world? Exactly 8 days from this month’s Friday the 13th, Harold Camping, the leader of a loosely organized Christian radio broadcasts and websites; and of a group independent of the Church confined by their understanding of the Bible. The organizer himself never fails to warn his listeners about the Judgment day. He believes that it is his and everyone else’s sole duty to warn the people.

The prophet is a retired civil engineer who used a mathematical formula based on his own interpretations of what he believed were hidden prophecies in the Bible. Predictions such as this aren’t new. He is also the same man who made the same predictions almost a decade ago that should have happened on April 6, 1994, and maybe with a corrected lines of miscalculations along with a different set of mathematical statements, he is hoping to send everyone the message to make them ready for that day.

Many would have thought of him as a psycho or just another wrongly religious. It’s hard to ignore such notice when they’re too serious in spreading the word, monetarily funding the movement from their own pockets to set up billboards, pin messages at bus stops and travelling crusades of volunteers giving out pamphlets on the streets. They have even formed a group to spread the news even beyond the borders of American soil.

People in Arkansas cannot just ignore what the man has been saying since animals there mysteriously dies of idiopathic cause. We haven’t even reached half of the year’s calendar but a lot of Camping’s believers say that we are already on our final stretch. Latest news on natural calamities was such harbingers of an impending doom as a result of man’s changed ways of living.

They refer to that happening as the Rapture. The believers hope to go straight up to heaven while the non-believers will suffer until the dawn of time. They say that if after the 21st of May and they’re still here, it didn’t mean that the event didn’t push through; it just means that they didn’t make it. And it’s just too safe for them to play that way.
The Church still maintains its silence on the matter when asked to the date of when Christ will return to bring an end once more to Christian’s rich history. As for me, I’d rather see another of Camping’s disappointed faces than not to be able to see anything at all and know that Apocalypse wasn’t kind enough to spare my good soul.
