"2048" says goodbye to Flappy Bird!!!

After the developer of the frustrating and popular mobile application Flappy Bird decided to remove the app from the App store (and now Flappy Bird is having its comeback full news here), a newer and more difficult game is now the center of everyone’s rage.

Introducing the equally and notoriously addictive game "2048".

Developed by Gabrielle Cirulli the game aims to come up with the "2048" tile by moving the tiles inside a 4x4 grid. Whenever two tiles bearing the same number touch they merge into one and form a new tile with the sum of both combined tiles.

According to the "2048" website the game was based on 1024 by Veewo Studio and is conceptually similar to Threes created by Asher Vollmer. Thanks to the geniuses behind these popular games from which "2048" has drawn inspiration and now is readily open for public consumption.

In order to come up with the highest possible tile (because it’s just so difficult) you must need proper focus and logic. You also need to maneuver the tiles with precise manner because additional tiles will keep on popping once you made a move. And without proper technique the tiles would soon pile up and fill up all the spaces making it impossible for you to win (which is very true).

The game can be played on Gabrielle Cirulli’s website. It can also be accessed using your phone.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
