Internet Video Calling the HD way!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.


After my relatives and friends went out of the country, I started using Skype to keep in touch with them since Skype has it all. But now that technology is evolving, I started looking for better options, particularly video calls, I know we already have HD cameras sold out in the market and I actually got one myself. We have the Microsoft cinema and Logitech Pro 9000. They look promising, but somehow fell short every time I use it. They are good when I use them locally, but every time I try to use it for internet video calls, I can’t seem to get the good quality of an HD camera that I am supposed to get.
I went online and started looking for better option for a real HD quality video call.
That is when I came across faceVsion. FV touchcam N1 is the first Internet streaming true HD webcam for Skype video calls. The FV touchcam N1 is capable of delivering full screen 720p streaming video call over the internet. Being a technology geek myself, the H.264 hardware encoder built in Touchcam N1 is the factor that sets it apart from its competitor. Having the chipset in the Touchcam N1 is how I can accomplish true HD quality video calls over the internet.
Since FV touchcam is available through and other value added partners, getting one for myself and even recommending it to my friends and relatives and that will surely take them away from all the hassles of finding a true HD camera. I personally like the FV ExpressCombo
To top that, is running a back to school promotion with $10 off any purchase, using the promo code of FVTBTS2 while checkout. The promo ends on 09/30/’10. I already send this promo code to my relatives and friends and I’m sure they going to grab this opportunity, so what don’t you the same thing? I tell you, it is already a big saving. So go and check out the  faceVision on line store
Here is a quick product information to get even more interested.
The faceVsion TouchCam N1 is the world’s first Skype- certified webcam capable of delivering full screen 720p streaming video over the Internet. The TouchCam N1 features embedded hardware H.264 encoding, a chip that takes the 720p video and using high-quality encoding technology, squeezes the video into a stream small enough to be sent over a typical Internet connection. The N1 also features a best-in-class 78 degree super wide angle lens with fast auto-focus, so several people can comfortably get into the picture. The N1 attaches easily to most notebook computers or flat-panel displays and can also sit on a desktop. Easy plug- and-play installation via hi-speed USB 2.0.

'The Expendables' Trailer in HD

Every boy grows up loving action movies, wanting to be that superhero, wanting to save the world. I, for one had my own share of action stars and superheroes. From the good old and still great Sylvester Stallone movies, to high flying fast moving Jet Li movies, to the car chase and adrenaline rush Jason Statham movies, and the hard to die movies of Bruce Willis. Along with rest of the good old action stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, and Mickey Rourke and the more modern action stars like Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin. Most of their movies were great, some were good and some, well, let us just say they are better left on tape and not on the big screen.

But just recently I was surprised, that all the names I mentioned are now in one big movie! “The Expendables”! Getting to see the older action stars do an action movie is already something to look forward to, but see them along with newer action stars in one movie is totally something else! I watched the HD Trailer of “The Expendables” and it already looks promising. Watch and enjoyed as I did myself. And for those who are not yet that familiar with the new movie “The Expendables”, here is a little synopsis for all of you.

A team of highly-trained, dangerous mercenaries are sent on a mission to a South American country, with the objective to overthrow a cold-blooded dictator. As the mission begins, the mercenaries discover that the situation is not as it appears. The men find themselves trapped in a deadly game of deception.
“The Expendables” is about a team of mercenaries led by Barney Ross (Stallone) head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator.

Virtual dating and a flirty avatar

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

Every once in a while I come across a virtual dating website, but nothing surpasses the experience I had with Smingle.Com. When I came across Smingle.Com, I got curious so I gave it a shot. I mean whats to lose right? So I created a profile for myself and of course to make my profile look more attractive, I uploaded my picture. To my surprise, I got 3 months for free! So, much more interested now, I went ahead and browse some more and tried to learn more interesting things about Smingle.Com and found out they have an interesting way of how you can get to know your person of interest through an exciting game they call “Love Match” plus they have a very intuitive way of chatting. Now the 3D avatar they have is sooo cool! Not only will you be able to customize how your avatar looks like, your lifelike avatar can flirt as well! And with whatever you type, your avatar responds naturally! It really is a lot of fun a very exciting way to meet people. virtual dating is really addictive, that I can tell you. I already have lots of friends in Smingle.Com and the virtual dating experience is really amazing.
According to THS Investigates, virtual dating helps curb the dangers of online dating by allowing people to get to know each other better before meeting in person * "The virtual dating experience ... is surprisingly intimate, which helps explain the relative success of virtual dating compared with the major dating sites." That I can say is true. I already had a successful virtual date!
So if you are looking for that someone who can spice up your life and rock your world, try virtual dating, try Smingle.Com, I bet you won’t have regrets.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is officially out. The best strategy game there is. I was a big fan of the first Starcraft game. I literally grew up with it. Sleepless nights spent playing the game at home and at a computer shop. Countless hours spent battling it out with my friends playing against each other  in multiplayer mode. And proud as I am, I reached the semi finals of a computer shops Starcraft competition game. I was good then. But then they became better. I was already in college then I had to rethink my priorities since I was starting to fail in my exams.  So I guess that means lesser time with Starcraft and more time with school stuff.  But that did not stop me from loving the game. I never grew tired of game even up to now, I still have the game installed in my desktop. I love it and will always do, and it will always be part of my unforgettable college life.  And now that the second installment is out, I am pretty sure I am going to love the game just the same.  For those not really familiar with Starcraft II, here a little overview of what the game is all about.

StarCraft II is split into three parts: the base game with the subtitle Wings of Liberty, and two expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void. Set in the 26th century in a distant part of the Milky Way galaxy, the game is built around three species: the Terrans, human exiles from Earth; the Zerg, a race of insectoid genetic assimilators; and the Protoss, a species with vast psionic power. Wings of Liberty focuses on the Terrans specifically, while the expansions Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void will focus on the Zerg and Protoss, respectively. The game is set four years after the events of Starcraft: Brood War, and follow the exploits of Jim Raynor as he leads an insurgent group against the autocratic Terran Dominion. The game includes old and new characters and locations from the original game.

The family goes Supaswapin'

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of SupaSwap Corporation. All opinions are 100% mine.


My niece’s 12th birthday is coming up and since I am on a tight budget, I was browsing for a website that offers new or second hand items at a cheaper price. As I was browsing, I came across a website that really got my attention, Supaswap.
Here are some features of the Supaswap that really outshined the other competitors
The first feature of Supaswap that got my attention is the strict parent control. Two thumbs up for that one!
The second feature that I liked is where the parents need to register their children, something that supports the first feature that I like. No cheating for the kids there.
The third feature is the zoning system.
• Game zone: No need to register just visit our Game Zone and enjoy the many Free Games we have for you. They are updated regularly so you will never get bored.
• Parent Zone: For parents, who wish to swap, bid, buy and sell items with other parents. Parents can also supervise their children with their own trading.
• Teen Zone: For young people aged from 13-18 years, who wish to swap, bid, buy and sell items with other teenagers.
• Junior Zone: For children aged from 8-12 years, who wish to swap, bid buy and sell items in a safe environment supervised by their parent or guardian.
The fourth and the one feature I rarely find in other competitors, is the swap option, something that I will be recommending to all my parent friends.

Now my niece was the girly type, she spends most of her free time playing PS3 with me. We call that our bonding moments. So now that I found that swap feature on Supaswap, I’ll go ahead and swap an old game with something we both didn’t play yet. Something for both of us to look forward to, on her birthday!

Now that's what i call swapping the Supaswap way!

and then i started to read

I can finally say to me myself that I finally finished reading a book that I actually understood.
Well, I was never the bookish type. I mean, I tried. But I can only last 10 to 15 minutes. Next thing you know, my eyes are starting to doze off.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I know, I know. It’s a kid’s book. But hey, at least it served me well.
I found the eagerness to read the book right after I did my Harry Potter marathon. After watching Book 6, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, It just had me craving to watch the next book. Too bad the movie isn’t out until November. So, left with no choice and curiosity of finding out what’s going to happen next, I grabbed a copy of Book 7, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows immediately. At first I thought this was going to be one of those good-at-the-start things that I usually do. To my surprise, I got hooked with the book. I didn’t get to finish reading the book that fast, but who’s racing, right? I finished reading the book a week after.
Now done that I am done with book, all I have to wait is November and wait for the first book I read come to life.

I craved for burger. ampm gave me the answer!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of AMPM. All opinions are 100% mine.

It was a lazy Tuesday afternoon, nothing unusual happening other than I was hungry that time and was craving a burger. While browsing through facebook doing the usual stuff I do, who would have thought I would come across an amazing burger Facebook page, ampm.
The Tower of Torta of ampm caught my attention right there and then. The size, the meat, almost everything about the burger made me want to grab it right away! And then I saw ampm's Towering Inferno. 3 burgers, Spicy Cheetos, Chili, Nacho cheese, it’s got everything that I wanted in a burger! Not everyday do you see a burger with everything that you want in it. It is totally amazing! All this i found on their facebook page, the ampm’s secret menu tab .
Now you have got to check out ampm's facebook page and check the secret menu tab. Check out ampm's items and leave a comment of your favorite item and tell them why. I know that’s what I did. I just couldn’t leave the page without saying that I’m going to grab that Towering Inferno the moment I get off my laptop! Oh, and did I tell you that ampm's have New Yums coming out on 7/26, 8/2, 8/16, and 8/30? They already got me craving for the Towering Inferno, I can’t believe they still have a surprise coming! I can't wait to check out the secret menu tab on those dates!
And here’s my favorite part, on August 2nd, i can create my own ampm secret menu concoctions right on their facebook page! Now I can’t wait to try that! Hmnn. I wonder how Chili, Chili, Chili would taste, maybe Spicy Cheetos and double chili? Man I’m hungrier than ever!
I’m heading out now ready to grab that Towering Inferno. I suggest you do the same!

Fuente OsmeƱa

It all happened one Saturday. I was doing my usual daily web browsing, visiting my favorite websites when I came across an invite for a night shoot. I confused myself with date at first thinking that it was going that same night thinking there might have been a typo error with the post. After a few confirmations, it was in fact going to happen that same night. Prior to checking the night shoot invite, I already had plans for the afternoon, to shoot at the Volks Wagen Car show in one the malls in our locale. But since invites such as night shoot only come every once in a while, I had to make do of the little time I had.

So after the car shoots, went ahead to meet up with the rest of the gang also looking forward for the night shot. No one was there yet when my girlfriend and I arrived so we took the liberty to get ourselves something to eat.
After the meal and finally completing the gang, we had out to our night shoot escapade. We took pictures of the bridge, some shanty and finally headed back to the city and took some shots of the famous Fuente Circle.
And here it is my share of that night escapade.

Sunrise at Bantayan Beach Bay

I woke up early and made sure not to miss the sunrise. As I walk through the sands down to the beach, I patiently wait for the sun the show me a glimpse of its light. And here it is, the lovely sunrise taken at the bay of the lovely beach of Bantayan Islands, Santa Fe, in the province of Cebu.

Though this was a quick and fast visit to the islands, I felt like there was still something missing or something that I have not yet done. Something tells me that I have not made the most of my visit to the island. Or maybe, someone to share the sights with. I guess that means that I will be back again someday. But for now, I wanted to do my travels alone. Just me, myself and I. A little selfish I know, but sometimes, we all need to find ourselves within our self every once in a while.

It's been a while since I last posted something on my blog. I have been pre-occupied with a lot of stuff for the past few months. But none the less, it was quite an adventure. Hopefully, as I sit in front of my monitor, typing away on my keyboard, this will start my blogging again. I love photography and what better way to show it than through my own blogsite.
