We must’ve seen a lot of great smartphones lately. And each time one brand launches its mobile model, we’d always get the same reaction: Some “ooohs” and “aaahs” here and there. And Starmobile Knight Spectra is one smartphone that truly sends such reaction. Why is that so? Well, it’s got such awesome features that’ll definitely make you want to have them. Let me give you five reason why Starmobile Knight Spectra is a top smartphone choice:
The Starmobile Knight Spectra has LTE capability that allows high-speed internet wherever LTE is available.
· With its 5.5 inch full HD AMOLED screen display and it’s slim and sleek making it simple yet elegant in style.
· It has a built-in digital TV tuner
· It has 64-bit Octacore with 3 GB RAM
· And best of all, it has an innovative way of taking pictures with its dual rear camera. One camera has 2MP while the other has 13MP. Starmobile Knight Spectra is the only mobile phone to date that has 2 rear cameras with DSLR capabilities.

Many great smartphones were released this year. Among them is the new Lenovo Vibe P1. Here are the four top reasons why we think the Lenovo Vibe P1 should be part of your Christmas shopping list:
- Lenovo Vibe P1 was designed to look at its best in class design and build quality. It is slim and sleek with a simple yet elegant look. The large 5.5-inch display fills the front panel. Watching video becomes more enjoyable because of the high-definition screen. The VIBE P1 is available in Platinum and Graphite Grey.
. The P1 is equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery. This is a rating bigger than most power banks, which usually have less than 4,000 mAh of battery juice. Having a powerbank-level battery doesn’t just mean you can enjoy hours and hours of gaming enjoyment, YouTube viewing and online productivity, it also means you can charge other devices/phones. You can have more than power for your own use and even get to share it with others. On the left side of the Vibe P1 is a manual power saver switch. Upon turning this switch position, you will immediately see the number of hours you have left on the phone. Charging the Vibe P1 is a breeze because of its rocket charge feature. It has a 24-watt charging capability so that an hour’s charge will get you through the day and four hours of charging will get you through 2 days to a week (depending on usage) of brownout episodes. Of particular interest to me, as a user, is OTG or on-the-go charging. OTG or on-the-go technology has been around since 2001. It simply means OTG allows you to connect your phone to other phones, printers and other peripherals (such as a mobile phone to a keyboard and mouse) without the need for a PC. OTG technology was developed by engineers because of the growing trend of business and productivity tools beginning to move away from the PC. The Vibe P1 allows you to charge your other devices, such as bluetooth headsets and even other phones using a special adapter, included in the box when you purchase the Vibe P1.

When you’ve been traveling for quite some time now, you develop a certain skeptical attitude towards hotels and other destinations—because let’s admit it, too often they may not look as good as they are in the pictures or brochures. But surprisingly, that’s not the case with View Park Hotel in Tagaytay. In fact, it’s but only fitting that I give a review of the said chic hotel because they had actually exceeded beyond my expectations both in service and with the look of the hotel.
Located on Calamba Road, Sungay East in Tagaytay City, any weary traveler won’t miss its green sign because it is strategically located just right across one of Tagaytay’s favorite family destinations, The Picnic Grove. It’s also a few blocks away from Our Lady of Manaoag Church and The Development Association of the Philippines. Finding View Park gives the weary traveler a home away from home. What made me say so? Well, you are being greeted with a warm smile by any of their staff each time they meet you while you’re in the hotel vicinity. And mind you, the staff is genuinely nice and not some put on unlike other hotel staff I’ve previously met before whose smiles quickly disappear and makes you feel like those smiles are like shovels left in the rain.

Based on a research conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), children around the world miss an estimated 443 million school days each year because of diseases caused by poor sanitation and hygiene practices, including using unsanitary toilets. The said figure only meant that it is tantamount to all grade school and high school classrooms in the country with an empty stomach for a month. This truth prevents the children to learn significantly and reduce their quality of life.
Illnesses due to poor toilet sanitation include diarrhoeal disease and parasitic worm infections which can lead to nutritional deficiencies, physical and mental stunting, and death. Every day, millions of children in rural communities and urban households nationwide are exposed to these health problems by using dirty toilets populated by disease-carrying germs.

After the earphone I had been using for quite sometime now was literally shelled from its apple green colored cords due to my nephew’s mishandling and improper use, I had been looking for a good quality earphone.

I’ve got myself a pink Urbanista Oslo earphones and in this product review, let’s see if it can be any good and would they be okay as potential replacement or alternative to my beloved ear buds that needed retirement.

KIX, the ultimate destination for action-entertainment recently concluded R U Tough Enough competition which was about finding the toughest Pinoy who is not just physically tough, but mentally and emotionally tough as well. It is doubtful that anyone could have predicted that the actual winner Reyn “The Daring Dreamer” Talosig, would embody that concept of toughness so completely and perfectly.
