I just came home from dinner in one of the newly opened fine dining restaurants at The Fort. I didn’t get to eat a lot because I’ve given up meat for Lent. I had a few pieces of bread with butter, a tiny portion of fish, and an ice-cold glass of Coke. What I was really dying for were truffle fries—actually any kind of fries—which they didn’t have.
I didn’t have a bad experience, in fact I thought about giving up meat for good because it makes me eat less.
I totally forgot about this short film I saw earlier this morning.
Filipino filmmaker Lance Katigbak, 18, won the People’s Choice award at the recent Manhattan International Film Festival in New York. His short film, Fine Dining, bested 14 entries from the United States, United Kingdom, India, Belgium, Rwanda, among other countries.
When I first saw it, I thought it would be a typical, sad Filipino poverty film. Turns out it has an unexpected twist, but I still don’t know if I should laugh or cry. And you?
Anyone who’s been inside my room knows it’s like an episode of Hoarders with mountains of swag and press releases. Lucky for me, sometimes I find something in there that I actually need.
Last Christmas someone gave me a MiLi gadget charger, which got lost in a pile.
Don’t you just hate it when your battery dies inconveniently (read: nowhere to charge)? I hate it so much I actually carry an extra BlackBerry battery. But even that can get stressful as changing batteries means I have to restart my phone, which takes time. So I looked in my box of swag and found this Mili power crystal.
It’s a tiny gadget you charge at home. Stick it in your bag with the attachments you need—you can charge your BlackBerry, iPhone, iPods and more. Every time I use it, people ask me about it, so I decided to blog it and share.
Unlike other mobile chargers I’ve tried, this one really works and costs much less. While it won’t charge your battery fully, it will give you enough power until you can go home and recharge (within the day of course).
I still don’t know who gave it to me, so may I say thank you to that wonderful person.
After doing some Googling I found the local supplier of MiLi saw some other cute gadgets worth checking out.
See for yourself!
