Back to Subic

I was back at Subic to attend a work-related event. I took this chance to take a photo at the Subic Bay, which we were unable to do on our last visit due to a stormy weather .

Retro Gaming Weekend

To those of you who grew up with the Family Computer, you might want to visit the RetroGamersPH. It is one of the very few shops in the Philippines that specializes in retro gaming consoles. Parking is very limited so make sure to give them a heads up before dropping by.

I purchased a few game cartridges to complete my retro gaming console.

The Lighthouse at Subic

We’ve visited the Lighthouse in Subic, Zambales. We wanted to try out some water sports but it was a stormy weekend. We went visiting malls and duty-free shops instead, which sharpened our skill in converting dollar to peso ;) As we drive around Subic, we became more familiar with the first to stop, first to go traffic scheme.

Late Night Parking at S Maison

We’ve observed what appears to be an almost empty basement parking space at S Maison (at Conrad Manila) after a late night movie on June 12, 2019 (a nationwide holiday). I’m sure had we looked around, we’ll likely find other cars parked.

A visit at a Philippine Naval Base

In June 2019, I had a chance to visit the Philippine Naval Base Pascual Ledesma in Cavite. I was invited to demonstrate to members and officers of the Philippine Navy how to bounce a signal off a satellite to greatly improve a radio’s range, far enough to reach nearby countries such as China, Malaysia, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and Japan.

Use the Engine Bay to Re-heat a Frozen Pizza

We did not wish to eat a pizza frozen, so while waiting for my fiancée to buy some stuff, I placed the pizza on the engine bay in an attempt to warm it up. It worked and we enjoyed the pizza afterwards.

Re-heating a pizza by placing it on the engine bay is not exactly something that I would recommend, so please do not try this yourself. Eat the pizza cold ;)

Zambales Roadtrip

In May 2019, I went on a trip to Iba, Zambales. From Cavite, the trip took around 6 hours, via NLEX and SCTEX, passing through Subic, and eventually, through the Olongapo-Bogallon road. I had a flat tire due to a ‘key’ left on the road, which pierced a tire some 30 km before reaching Iba proper.

On the way home, I stopped by a long bridge traversing a very wide river, where the lahar from Pinatubo discharges directly to the sea. The amount of lahar deposited in that river is massive!
