21NovMega Man E-Tank Sports Drink

Mega Man E-tank Sports Drink

Anyone who’s ever played a Mega Man game will be surprised to see Mega Man E-tanks turned into sports drinks. An E-tank, by the way, is Mega Man’s power up item that restores his energy in the game.

Megaman X AvatarJust found out that Capcom released a Mega Man E-Tank Sports Drink last August in celebration of the September launch of Mega Man 9. E-tank drinks cost 137 Yen or $1.25 USD each and is available only in Japan.

18JulA rock from the beach

Rock from a beachI’ve been keeping this rock in my room since college. All I can remember is that I got it from a beach somewhere. But I can’t remember from what beach, who am I with that time, and what special event happened, that I still cared to bring it home with me considering that it is so heavy. This rock must really be special. I really wanted to find out. I tried closing the lights in my room hoping that it would glow in the dark. But it did not.

Heart HandWhile I was looking at it, I thought of Jason Mraz again! His latest video, I’m Yours reminded me of my college days when we used to go to beaches, lakes, waterfalls (unplanned). It maybe tiring at times especially when we walk on slimy wet rocks, but its all worth it. It made me miss my old friends. I haven’t been going out lately because I’ve been concentrating on my personal geeky projects that consume my time and money. Plus, I have dayjob too! Continue reading ‘A rock from the beach’

18MarFinally got my birth certificate

At last, I finally got an authenticated copy of my birth certificate. It wasn’t easy because my birth certificate has no first name. It is only on the affidavit that I was named “Carol”. So to sum it up, here is what I did:

  1. Day 1. I went to the Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO), where my birth was registered, to apply for a Supplemental Report. I gave them my old birth certificate, together with the affidavit. They made me a new affidavit and had it notarized. They asked me to go back after a week. (Time spent: 2 hours, VL)
  2. Day 2. I went back to LCRO. They gave me a copy of my birth certificate with the corrected first name. To have it authenticated, I need to submit these to National Statistics Office (NSO). But when I went to NSO, I saw long lines of people so I decided to go back another day. I didn’t file VL for this. (Time spent: 1 hour)
  3. Day 3. More details in Birth Certificate Step 3. (Time spent: 3-4 hours, VL)
  4. Day 4: I went back to NSO and got my birth certificate! (Time spent: 10 minutes)

26FebMath Problem

Nothing really interesting here. I was just thinking of the numbers 1 and 7 and the word reciprocate and math. Don’t ask why, I won’t tell. Hehe. I don’t know how to connect the word reciprocate to 1, 7, and math. Good thing there’s such a term as reciprocal. So I challenged myself to come up with a math problem using those numbers and the result should be somewhat related to secret. Try to solve the math problem I created to understand what I mean.

Reciprocal of 7, multiplied by 1000, round off to the nearest one (1).

I love math!

07FebBirth Certificate Step 3

I went to National Statistics Office (NSO) earlier this afternoon to continue with the processing of my birth certificate (filed VL for this). I was already on the 3rd step of the entire process. I waited in line for 3 hours to submit the documents and pay the cashier. They gave me a small piece of paper containing the date when the Certified True Copy (CTC) of my birth certificate will be released. This means, I still have to go back to NSO.
