Photohunt: Morning

One Sunday morning, we had our ‘almost brunch’ at  a coffee house called The Sweet Spot.  It is such a cozy place located at Maginhawa St., Sikatuna Village, perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.  It has a nook with books, too!  That part is what I love about the place.

Hello to all Photohunters at Photohunt! I am back again. :D

Not a Karaoke Sound

I think those DJs in parties where the sound outputs are that good get one of those audio interfaces in reliable music stores.  The sound outputs of DJs or musical directors must have audio interfaces that upgrade these outputs.  What is an audio interface by the way?  I always hear them from people who are in charge of the music productions in events.

Browsing through the net, Sweetwater defines it as the one that bridges the gap between analog to digital while Turntable specifically defines it as the one that upgrades the sound output of the computer.  They are a necessity because those installed outputs in computers are not meant for higher sound resolution.

This is one info bit that is truly helpful.  It might not be a concern for me because I am not a DJ but it answers my question on why sound bits from the karaoke singing by the neighbors are not good to the ears.

Daryl’s Birthday Extension at Peking Garden

We woke up early.  It’s a day Daryl intended to celebrate his birthday.  It’s the most awaited day.  We were going to eat at Peking Garden where the famous Peking duck was said to be the best among the best of Peking duck dishes in the metro.

I prayed before we left that all will be alright because we were destined to go to Glorietta at Ayala where Peking Garden is. It is far from where we were.  The one at Trinoma already closed down (unfortunately) when Daryl decided to check and taste the goodness of the renowned dish.

Anyway, as I continue, the preachy ones will probably tell that God didn’t hear my prayer because on our way to Ayala, the car overheated and we had to stop by at a gasoline station.  But this is another story.

Unfriend vs. Unfollow – What’s your Facebook choice?

I remember a FB (Facebook) friend, who was a colleague in one of those workplaces I had been to, who told me to just set my privacy settings so that I will not be ‘unfriending’ or ‘rejecting the request of’ the person but instead click the privacy buttons in order not to see any of the person’s posts.  It was said to that effect, not able to remember exactly his words. His concern must be that I would offend somebody knowing him to be that kind and friendly.

I did not heed the advice.  There were instances where I had accepted people in Facebook who were not really my friends in the truest sense of the word, and some of them are not even acquaintances but strangers.  (Well, a big part of those in my ‘FB friends’ list are actually strangers because I have not met them in person but in all its fairness to the concept of ‘FB friend’ I had gotten to know some of them through some friends, and through blogging and other forms of media, plus theirs posts or statuses).  If a FB friend’s post becomes unintelligible and/or offensive, or could be something I will be undesirably involved, I decide to ‘unfriend’.    Lately, I only ‘unfollow ‘ remembering that friend’s concern of offending somebody’s feelings; then decide finally, after a few days or weeks depending on circumstances, to ‘unfriend’.  I am usually quiet or reticent about this decision not to cause any mess.
