Back in the day, if you wanted calling cards you had to go to some little print shop to order them.
Then the high-tech printers were invented and we made them at home—but they looked homemade. If you wanted professional, you had to know a graphic designer who knows where the good printers are.
At my age, I no longer have the patience to do any of that. I just want simple cards with great print and quality.
Then I found Moo cards online and have been ordering cards and stickers straight from my laptop.
Today my second batch of Moo cards and stickers arrived from the post office!
The mini stickers come in a little matchbook
and the calling cards come in a nifty box
Moo cards are easy to order and come in several sizes and ranges. You can even print a variety of pictures in one order without any extra charge. The possibilities are endless.
Lots more ideas on the website. Are you ready to order? Click HERE!

Esquire Philippines’ August issue delves into the non-conformists of men’s fashion, the 25th anniversary of BENCH, the screening of The Bourne Legacy which was shot in the country, and more. BENCH founder Ben Chan graces the cover of the Wealth Issue as his business reaches 25 years of cultivating a lifestyle brand for Filipinos.
His success comes from providing a wide range of affordable, basic clothing, and also extends to fragrance, watches, accessories, snacks, and even a Bench MasterCard.
Ben says, “Anything that I do has the Filipino in mind. Anything that I do is always Filipino.”
Also featured is CEO Felipe Gozon as he talks about the TV5-GMA merger that shook the nation.
Mr. Gozon says, “You should not be surprised bakit gustong bilhin ang Channel 7. Parang tinatanong mo bakit ba nililigawan yung pagkaganda-gandang dalagang yun?”
Dude, I missed the screening of this, pare. (Sorry, I’m kidding.)
Seriously, I feel really bad I wasn’t able to watch the screening of Give Up Tomorrow last July 27 and 29 at Cinemalaya.
July 27th, I had already planned that trip to Tagaytay, and July 29th, a Sunday, was my rest day. Give Up Tomorrow is a multi-awarded documentary by producer Marty Syjuco and director Michael Collins, who chronicle the story of Paco Larrañaga, a 19-year-old student who was accused (along with six others) of kidnapping, raping and murdering sisters Marijoy and Jacqueline Chiong in Cebu on July 16, 1997.
Even as 40 witnesses (including Larrañaga’s teachers and classmates at the Center for Culinary Arts in Quezon City) testified under oath that he was hundreds of miles from the crime scene, Paco and his co-accused were sentenced to death by lethal injection in February 2004.
On June 24, 2006, capital punishment was abolished in the Philippines, and in October 2009, Paco, a Spanish citizen, was transferred to the Madrid Central Penitentiary in Soto del Real, Spain, where he is due to serve his life sentence until 2038. By then he will be 61.
Then and now: Paco in a Manila jail (above) and recently in Spain (below) where he was allowed to watch the screening of the movie with his family.
Give Up Tomorrow hopes to prove the innocence of Paco Larrañaga, while exposing “a Kafkaesque extravaganza populated by flamboyantly corrupt public officials, cops on the take, and a frenzied legal and media circus. It is also an intimate family drama focused on the near mythic struggle of two angry and sorrowful mothers who have dedicated more than a decade to executing or saving one young man.” (Source)
I’m really hoping they will screen this again in Manila as two screenings at the CCP are really not enough.
If there’s anyone who knows of any future screenings in Metro Manila, please let us know.
