JRS Express, Forum Robinsons, Mandaluyong

Recently, we needed to send an important “document” (a plastic ATM card) to Malaysia and we chose to use JRS Express, a courier service company operating inside Forum Robinsons, the mall just across the road from our condominium here in Manila.

JRS Express in Forum Robinsons, is open everyday until 9:00 pm normally.

Mey Lin, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong

When we went to SM Megamall yesterday, all we wanted to do was buy an oven, not to have a nice meal.

But when we got hungry and started looking at fast-food outlets just to have a quick bite, we stumbled upon this Chinese restaurant hidden in one far corner of this humongous mall.

As we walked in, we convinced ourselves that we were just going to have a quick meal. Perhaps just share a plate of fried noodles…

Backup WordPress UPLOADS folder

I develop my web sites from more than 1 computer typically. So, in the case of all my web sites developed with WordPress, I need to have a local copy of the wp-content/plugins and wp-content/uploads folders on each development machine if I want to test anything for my web site locally — on my laptop, for instance — before pushing it back out to the web server.

FYI: Computers, laptops and servers I use are all powered by Linux.

Google Pixel 3a

When Rexcel’s cousin told us that the Google Pixel 3a was on sale in Germany, and asked if I would like her to buy me one, I knew it was an opportunity I could not pass up!

After all, she was returning to Manila in just a few days time and I would not have to wait very long for the phone.

Plus, the Google Pixel 3a, with 64GB of storage, was on sale in Germany for only €329, including tax.

After saying yes, I just had to wait a couple of days, and by yesterday, January 5, I held in my hand my very first Google Pixel phone. 🙂

HE Laundry Detergent in Manila

Recently, we bought a washing machine from LG Philippines and it is a High-Efficiency (HE) front-loading washer-dryer combination machine.

Because it is a HE washer, my partner reminded me that we are not able to use any ol’ laundry detergent with this machine.
