june 2005 – june 2010

The 41st National Marketing Conference 2010, spearheaded by the Philippine Marketing Association, is a great head start of insights on how to accelerate the changes the research and development projects of the academe can made to the nation. Unfortunately, most of the thesis projects of the university remain at the shelves of the library or at the indexes of online catalogs for references because researchers, developers and authors of such projects tend to forget thinking beyond producing of the service or product. The potential of these researches and studies to forge the Philippines as a nation of innovations are highlighted in the conference like the National Marketing Conference of PMA. Marketing brings the Filipino ideas from paper to production.

The topics of the event, which are to be addressed by top caliber executives of known marketing agencies and corporations with best marketing strategies, are all relevant and can hit common intersections of Marketing and Research & Development. I am very excited to be informed of the visions and how their missions have been accomplished. The roster of speakers are very impressive.

I’m looking forward for this congress, which is to be held on June 24 and 25 at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza. The University of the Philippines Diliman College of the Engineering will also benefit from this event since it is holding its own Marketing Congress for Research & Development and I’m ready to share what I would learn from the 41st National Marketing Conference 2010.

This event is proudly sponsored by Search Profile Index.

  • There are two types of Facebook spam applications. The first one is the app that posts spam to your own wall like smiles, help, horoscope readings, quiz results and pillows. The other annoying type is the app that notifies you on the footer when someone has viewed your profile, has posted something on your wall or has commented on your posts.

    This is how to block such annoying apps.

  • Ok, I’m throwing my first 365 project in the trash bin. It’s the Dream thingy. I can’t rely to my subconscious and unconscious to pull something to blog lately. Because I’m too preoccupied lately.

    But I’ll replace it with another project, this time, a weekly fun. Ambigram making is not something new to me but I haven’t brought the creative juice out for it for a long time.

    Random fact: There was a time that I wanted to make money out of ambigrams. However, this ambigram generator killed it.

    Since Mark Palmer’s own ambigram generator cannot solve some input and cannot output any other type of ambigram such as ring, chain and mirror, I take this as an opportunity. So if you’ve seen an ambigram posted here, you are assured that it’s original. :)

  • Dream 010/365

    Ooops. I haven’t blogged the dream right away. It was my mistake. I’m still recalling right now the images but it seems the dream is not vivid. I remember survival. I remember hospital. Though I wonder if those were the images how come I couldn’t narrate the entire story. It should be one of the action-packed dreams I had.

    Well, later is another dream. Let’s see.

  • I just fulfilled one of my dreams.

    I didn’t dream even I have slept for more than 10 hours. Nice sleep actually.

  • I was not able to take note of my dream that night. Maybe because I only slept for four hours and it occurred 4AM to 8AM. So my hypothesis is that I am so tired or at that rate, processing time is busy. No output yet.

    But the moment I wake up, it’s time to fulfill one of my dreams. :)

  • Ok. It’s late. But I can still recall my dream. I scribbled keywords so I won’t forget.

    It’s about the Pinoy Big Brother, the next regular season actually. The not-so-nice about this particular scene is that once again, I am still part of the audience and not as a housemate. I think it’s the Big Night for PBB 4 and the setting is outside Big Brother’s House. The event was held in an open ground.

    They’re introducing the final four. However, the twist of this season is that one of the final four housemates is the accomplice of Kuya in the entire season. Based on the images, he appeared that he and another housemate became so emotionally attached to each other. The lady actually won as the season’s Big Winner. She looked like Gaby dela Merced and DJ Dela Mar combined.

    Then, after witnessing the event, I went to a place. Though consciously I was not sure where I am heading to but I just let my subconscious go wherever he wants to go. Then I came across with a construction of the major street. It looks like they’re building another sky train or highway. The foundations are so massive and so tall. The street is not passable by vehicles.

    And there I went to Mini-stop.

    Well, dreaming of PBB is dreaming of PBB. Self-explanatory.

    Construction signifies growth and ambition and renewed confidence. It also suggests the need to work on myself which happens to be true. The next days after January 7 proved it.

  • Oh this is my first dream of the year that is no coherent storyline. The images are so random that I can’t find a connection among them.

    Here are some images that I remember:

    1. Plurk timeline – It was zoomed out that I can’t recognize a single username
    2. Military/ROTC training – An officer commanding three cadets. But when one of the latter can’t do what is asked, I was pulled from the bench and filed in to be an example.
    3. Event – There’s an event being handled by the corp and we’re looking for a familiar female orgmate. Why? Because the guests of this event are (dirty) old men and they’re arriving

    To dream the Internet signifies my need to connect and communicate with a larger network of people. Plurk is the clue. Yes, I’ve been plurking everyday and maybe the significant action that I’ve done last night was to unfollow some people. (ninja)

    Military suggests rigid authority and emotional repression. Woah.

    I still don’t get it.

  • So it’s really ‘back-to-school’ mode again.

    I was running from one building to this building, probably a modern x-storey residence hall or a building-of-tambayans. That time, I was expecting a lot of bags occupying the room. So it means that a group, preferably an organization, is renting the space so we can leave our stuff as we go to other buildings. But when I came at that room, the door was unlocked and the lights are off. Almost everyone has gotten their things except me and one or two orgmate.

    I went outside and looked for the one who’s holding the key. It was Ma’m Riza. Her husband and my friend, Jordan is already at the room. So my conscious guessed that they owned the space. I thanked them before I left.

    Apparently, the setting is not inside the UP campus. I was heading now to one of the De La Salle’s hall. Not really sure if that building really exists in real world. I remembered a time where I took a stairway. It was a long and high climb. There’s a lot of students blocking parts of it.

    Then I was searching for some documents and I knew where it was located. The maze-like building seems like being renovated when suddenly I felt the entire building popped out and flew up to the skies. Very weird. District 9 thing. And I heard that the building is to be relocated at the main campus. And yeah, now I knew, I was in Greenhills and we’re now heading to Taft. What a technology this school has.

    Just right after we landed, I’ve seen an adult at a parking lot complaining about what happened because his car got busted due to the debris of the moving building. LOL. I went to a lecture room of the another building of the university. I was not sure if it’s Ninoy’s. Inside the lecture room are my classmates and Resly, my high school best buddy and I asked him to hand me his homework. It was an essay-type assignment and I just needed to know what the question is. When everyone has written their answers at sheets of yellow paper, I’ve jotted mine at a grade school paper.

    And now for the meanings and interpretations.

    Maybe it’s school time once again that’s why I’ve dreamed of campuses. Sometimes or most of the times, I came late at my class. That’s why I’ve seen myself at my dream running against time. But why De La Salle? I haven’t met a friend there for the past month.

    Dreaming that I run alone suggests that I will advance to a higher position and surpass your friends in the race for wealth. Woot! So, does it mean that the three familiar faces from this dream are the key persons to that success? Nice. But I haven’t talked to them for some time but have poked them at Facebook, though.

    Paper signifies the need to express myself through writing or art. Oh…. It also suggests that I need to work on being more communicative.

    More communicative??? Hmmm… with someone? Hehe.

  • The truth is I don’t have a dream. I haven’t been asleep.

    Though what I’ve been doing and the dreams themselves are kinda connected with Avatar 3D, the movie I watched earlier.
