“PLDT myDSL’s Internet to Sawa TRANSFORMS my Internet experience from EXHAUSTING to INEXHAUSTIBLE!”

I'm big on Internet speed. My whole day depends on it. Cut my Internet connection and you would unleash the beast in me. Ask my service provider and they would know.:)

As soon as I wake up in the morning, I would reach for my laptop and begin my day. Sometimes, even before  brushing my teeth.:) And I don't know why, but I have this silly habit of going to just to check if I was getting the connection speed I was paying for. A little bit on the OC side, I must admit.

I have a love/hate relationship with my current Internet connection. I write my blog posts in the morning but the speed of my Internet was so slow, it's making me crazy! It's hard to do an article when you couldn't  browse the web properly. At night, we reconcile when the speed was a lot faster. But who wants a rocky relationship? It can get really exhausting and things would have to go south at some point.

It's a good thing, I have a new prospect. I know it sounds like something a two-timing person would say. But it's hard to stay loyal when you're not getting what you deserve, right?

When I went to my friend's house to watch a Manny Pacquiao fight through their PLDT WatchPad, I also asked to connect to their Wi-Fi. And whoa! I was completely blown away. Their PLDT myDSL's speed was 3Mbps and mine was not even 2Mbps. I never wanted to leave. I had to drag myself out of that house because I knew the kind of Internet connection I was going home to.

Something's gotta give. Particularly, after reading about PLDT myDSL's offer of upgrading their Plan 3000 subscribers from 3Mbps to an unlimited 5Mbps for free. It would also be really cool to have my very own PLDT WatchPad. No need to barge into someone else's home just to see my favorite boxer in action. And the one year of free PLDT to PLDT NDD calls would be a very nice cherry on top of the cake.

It's time for a change. Especially now that I'm not anymore just another blogger. I recently became a certified Nuffnanger. In fact, I just attended their exclusive film screening of "X-MEN: First Class" with my hubby. It does feel good to be a Glitterati, but it would feel even better if this Glitterati was writing her blog posts effortlessly with the inexhaustible Internet connection and speedtastic offer made possible only by PLDT myDSL. I'm definitely making the transformation. Are you?

MassKara Festival, A Celebration of Life

I have always been fascinated with masks since I was a child. I am especially fond of masquerade masks, just like the ones they wore in "The Phantom of the Opera". In fact, I used to beg my mom to buy me one every single Halloween. But she would refuse because my other sisters were afraid of it.

Here's a picture of me at a Venetian masks souvenir shop in Las Vegas, 2009.

It's no wonder I immediately got excited when I first heard about the MassKara Festival of Bacolod. This festival sounds like fun. With all the dancing and intricate costumes, this could well be the most colorful fiesta in the country.

I had a lot of friends who hailed from Bacolod. My mom herself was an Ilongga from the nearby province of Antique. According to my mom, the smiling masks worn by the streetdancers were a symbol of the locals' happy spirit. Their ability to smile in the face of poverty, brought about by periodic instability in the sugar industry. Which is by the way, the town's main source of livelihood.

Bacolod is definitely going right on the top of my list of places to see. I want to witness the colorfully-masked dancers and be a part of the MassKara Festival. I want a taste of the native Ilonggo cuisine at the food festival. I want to explore the history and culture of the area. I want to connect with the place by getting to know the locals.

The MassKara Festival is for everyone anyway. A celebration of our triumph over trials, of abundance over poverty, of victory over tragedy.  After all, life itself is one big celebration.
