can’t wait ’til tonight

let’s just say i have been longing for a couple of beers. it’s been a while since i had last finished a bottle.

and it was like, a month ago.

come tonight and i will be at San Miguel Avenue for San Miguel Oktoberfest 120! beer-guzzling galore. and Third Eye Blind will be in there, playing live!

and i will be going there for FREE. hooray for that!

the but the catch is, i was only given a General Admission ticket, which costs around P120. according to here, the Gen Ad ticket would not be much. i won’t even see the 3EB. major bummer. see more details here.

but most of my old friends will be going. my best pal Mamer and his girlfriend Angelie will be going. and my orgmate, Charlie, will be going too. as well as some of my barkada.

i will be going with some of my officemates and their kids. haha. cool. by the way, their kids are about my age.

i hope i won’t go home drunk. but my tolerance to alcohol has improved much since i was in college. i will see tonight if i could still tip over 15 bottles. [i am dreaming]

i was surfing the net about alcohol and i found this. haha. so, this is the reason why Asians turn red after finishing a few bottles. wow, the ‘red flush’ was an Asian thing. for the longest time, i thought it was because of being mestizo or being Caucasian.

for all i know, we Filipinos are hardy drinkers. we have Red Horse! but it turns out, we are not the best beer drinkers in the world.

on another note, i also can’t wait til tomorrow ~ WORDCAMP Day!

can’t wait…

until September 6!

because on that fateful day me and some of my friends will be joining WordCamp Philippines, a blogging conference for WordPress bloggers.

i’ve blogged about this here. and i’m really excited. haha.

oh, by the way, it looks like WordCamp Philippines has been grabbing attention for the number of sponsors have gone up. a great big kudos to all the organizers.

WordCamp Philippines 2008

just learned of the WordCamp 2008 through my friend Stox’s blog.

hooray, hooray!

who would think that a conference on WordPress would be here! man. this WordCamp would be the first conference here in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia.

unlike my friend Stox, who by the way is an internet star in her own right, i am a complete numbskull when it comes to blogging. i have tried several blog platforms before and these did not appeal to me much because, either these were to complicated and tiresome or the blogging experience they had to offer was too limited.

back in 2006, Stox and i were working for a BPO company that specialized on online marketing, I came across WordPress. i was handling a blog that used the WordPress format and i said to myself that this was the platform for me. since then, i have been an avid WordPress user.

i have been blogging for more than four years now. but still, i’m still a noob when it comes to blog technicalities. i’m surely joining this conference so that i could maximize my WordPress experience and perhaps, be an internet star myself.

all you WordPress users out there, join up and see you on September 6 at College of St. Benilde, in Taft Avenue. i would definitely be there.

a big kudos to the people, Mindanao Bloggers, who have brought this event here. bringing the WordCamp is more than a good job, it’s a miracle. many thanks to all of you.

here are also the links of WordCamp 2008’s other sponsors. please do give their sites a visit.

until then, i will be waiting. and i will blog more than ever.
