Lost your Smartphone? Selling your Smartphone?

September 13, 2013

Stutus is a mobile app that lets you claim ownership of your smartphone through our community. This will secure your smartphone since it is now registered as yours and you can easily let your friends know if it gets lost or stolen. On the other hand, the app can make it easy for people to return it to you.

Selling your smartphone & buying a new one this Christmas? You can also showcase your smartphones or offer it for sale. If you sell your smartphone to another Stutus user, you can also transfer the ownership to the buyer for a transparent ownership history.

Stutus is still on public alpha testing.

Almost a week has passed since August 29, 2013, but even in the land of the rising sun, it’s better late than never (I graduated on time. I am talking about this delayed blog post.)

After a strenuous year both inside and outside the classroom, I have successfully completed my MBA degree from Japan’s #1 business school, GLOBIS University. Thank God for time management.

Once again, thank you for all the support especially from my family, friends, and new found GLOBIS family. Thank you to GOD for the chance to prove myself time and time again.

Anyhoo, here’s to another great chapter in my life.

Abenomics and the Generic Threat

Here’s my new article for the school portal:

Japan is known to have one of the most efficient Universal Healthcare Systems in the world in terms of monetary spending. But behind this admirable system is a burgeoning debt which could break this picture-perfect scenario. In fact, there are now cracks all over, and having been given the opportunity to work with a multinational pharmaceutical company as part of GLOBIS’ internship program, I was able to learn more not just about Japan’s healthcare but as well as that of the entire world. One of the popular buzzwords foreshadowing the future of Japan’s healthcare is the mystery called “Abenomics.” The current Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s bold economic reforms supposedly have three arrows, the third of which is a pledge to deregulate important foundations of the economy such as the pharmaceutical industry.

Independence Day Celebration at Tokyo, Japan Embassy #Kalayaan2013

June 24, 2013

Dirty ice cream, anyone? Hehe.

Last Saturday, I joined the celebration of the 115th Philippine Independence Day at our embassy in Roppongi Hills. It’s my first time to be there so I allocated ample time. Seriously, I was quite excited, because not only was this gonna be surely fun and entertaining, it’s my first time ever to be invited to what is technically a state occasion. After all, unlike the ones you see on Hollywood films about American state dinners or something (what a benchmark, huh?), Philippine events such as this one are surely gonna be festive and noisy, which makes me miss home even more. Anyway, the atmosphere during the event felt like a Pinoy Christmas party. Everyone was wearing their suits or our national outfits, but everyone was simply having fun.

There were a lot of food, beer, beer, beer, and “sidewalk barbecue.” It was a good thing that the event was not a very pretentious one. Something I badly needed as I count n-70 days until I graduate and safely return to the Philippines.

A big discussion during the celebration is the recent stellar economic performance of the Philippines, which is why everybody was very ecstatic and proud to be a Filipino. But then again, as what the mass celebratant (it’s a predominantly Catholic nation, after all) mentioned in his homily, “with much powers comes great responsibility.

More Funds In The Philippines: Why PH Government Should Focus on Manufacturing, Education, Science & Technology

June 8, 2013

Just doing my part to entice investors or, at the very least, push for a better outlook from foreigners regarding the Philippines. I wrote this article with the target reader in mind: 1.) Foreigners who may have no idea where the Philippines is; 2.) Those who have heard about the Philippines, but is unaware that we have just been dubbed “the fastest growing economy in Asia;” Or worse, 3.) Those who see the  Philippines as the gates of hell.

Thus, please bear with me if I wrote the article this way. Not too long, not too short. And, for most Filipinos and Filipinos-at-heart, why the article sounds like a “dummy’s guide on why the Philippine economic system (kinda) works for our favor (for now.)”

Hello everyone. Just had my career consultation with the GLOBIS MBA Career Office earlier. I would appreciate any referrals for job opportunities in Manila (or wherever in the Philippines, really) focusing on marketing, business development, or strategy. I will be completing my studies here by August. Thanks! #TogaTime #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines

Technically Unemployed:

Unemployment (or joblessness) occurs when people are without work and actively seeking work.

Best Ramen in Tokyo? My Mensoubou Mutekiya Experience! Mensoubou 無敵屋

May 7, 2013

2013-05-05 19.33.07

I first heard of Mensoubou Mutekiya when my grade school classmate and her family (who is also the current “political first family” of my hometown, Tagum City) visited Tokyo last year. We (meaning them, with myself) had a dinner somewhere in Shibuya  and the Filipino community here in Tokyo, who were originally from Davao. At that time, after going home back to their hotel somewhere in Ikebukuro, they informed all of us who were still there that time before we finally parted ways that the hotel they were staying in suggested they try the so-called “best ramen in Japan” (or should I say, “Best Ramen in Ikebukuro?”) during their stay.

Given my past culinary experience in Japan during the 1990s and my Filipinized Japanese cuisine exposure to Toki, I wasn’t really that very interested because for some reason, my taste buds are not really that picky. But one thing I always found to be very interesting is that regardless of what day or what time I would pass by the area since the place first registered in my consciousness, I would really see a lot of people queuing just to have their lunch or dinner or late night munch in this very quaint dining spot while the other nearby restaurants are either half empty or half full, depending on how you look at it.
