no room for sadness

Celebrated on of my good friend's birthday yesterday. She's going through a tough time since she just broke up with her boyfriend and... well, you know how that goes. :)

greetings from the purple room!

After 23 years of living in my grandparent's house, we finally have our own house! The rooms are bigger and plus, more closet space! :)

Here's a sneak peek at my room. We moved last Sunday but we're still in the process. So many things to fix and put in boxes. Moving is tiring work!

Groupon: FabuloCity (Be Fabulous in the City)

Last night I was able to attend the launch party Groupon had for the people of Cebu, announcing to us their boisterous arrival in the Philippines and in every major city! 
Although it was raining cats and dogs the whole day, me and 2 of my friends braved the rain to attend this event. About a month or two ago I already heard about Groupon and I've purchased from them about 3 times already but my information about them was only limited. Being there and listening to what the CEO, managers and other officers had to say about Groupon gave me some more insight behind the company that I was buying from.


Here's a little something you guys should know about Groupon!

Meet The Fastest Growing Company Ever
Christopher Steiner, 08.30.10, 12:00 AM ET

At least Mark Zuckerberg wrote a few lines of computer code at Harvard before he left to launch Facebook. Now Andrew Mason, a relaxed and lanky 29-year-old music major from Northwestern, has managed to build the fastest-growing company in Web history. Groupon represents what the dot-com boom was supposed to be all about: huge sales, easy profits and solid connection between bricks-and-mortar retailers and online consumers.

Groupon, a name that blends "group" and "coupon," presents an online audience with deep discounts on a product or service. Act now, says the pitch: You have only so many hours before this offer expires. That's a familiar come-on, but it's coupled with a novel element: You get the deal only if a certain number of fellow citizens buy the same thing on the same day. It's a cents-off coupon married to a Friday-after-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy.

What's in it for the vendor--which might be a museum, a yoga studio or an ice cream shop? Exposure. Since the resulting revenue is not only discounted but shared (typically, 50/50) with Groupon, the vendor may scarcely break even on the incremental sales. But it now has customers who might never have thought of patronizing the business. Groupon gets its offers in front of eyeballs by buying ad space through Google and Facebook and via the word of mouth of its 13 million subscribers.
Unlike so many dot-com rockets, Groupon is a real business. Occupying 85,000 square feet inside a rehabbed eight-story former Montgomery Ward warehouse in Chicago's River North neighborhood, the company is on track to pass $500 million in revenue this year, according to a report Morgan Stanley put together to win some underwriting business. No technology stalwart--including Ebay,, Yahoo, AOL and Google--grew that big that fast. At just 17 months old this April Groupon boasted a $1.35 billion valuation when it raised $135 million, the biggest chunk of it from Digital Sky Technologies, the curious Moscow investment fund behind Facebook and Zynga. (Mason will not disclose his stake, which he says is less than 50%.) The only company to reach a $1 billion valuation faster was YouTube (now part of Google), founded in 2005 and still waiting to turn its first profit. Groupon broke into the black just seven months after inception.

it's here! it's out!

iPhone 4S

Siri. Your wish is its command.

Siri on iPhone 4S lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it.

Dual-core A5 chip.
The most powerful iPhone processor ever.

Two cores in the A5 chip deliver up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics.2 And you’ll feel the effects. Fast. iPhone 4S is quick and responsive, which makes all the difference when you’re launching apps, browsing the web, gaming, and doing just about everything. And no matter what you're doing, you can keep on doing it. Because the A5 chip is so power-efficient, iPhone 4S has outstanding battery life.

The you-can’t-believe-it’s-on-a-phone camera.

This just might be the best camera ever on a phone. And with all-new optics, it just might be the only camera you need. Because behind every shot, you’ve got 8-megapixel resolution and a custom lens with a larger f/2.4 aperture. Not to mention an improved backside illumination sensor, excellent auto white balance, advanced color accuracy, face detection, and reduced motion blur. It all means that no matter how many people, how much light, and how much action you capture, everything looks exactly as it should. And just wait until you see the photos.

iCloud. Your content. On all your devices.

iCloud is the easiest way to manage all your stuff, because it manages it all for you. iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more. And wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. It’s automatic, effortless, and seamless. And it just works.

AND SO MUCH MORE!! Can't wait to get my hands on one of these babies!! :)

aaahhh, birthdays!

Seems like these days, with everyone busy and all, we only get to see each other when there are birthday celebrations. And even then, we're still incomplete. 

Camille celebrated her very late birthday last Saturday at Blue Elephant - sort of thai meets filipino cuisine.

I remember this drink from Beijing, it tasted so good then! But when I got to try this one (a different variety) I started to doubt the beer in itself. I don't drink beer but Hoegaarden is the one thing I can stand (but still not finish).

She had to do 3 consecutive shots!
