I started writing this blog entry as I watched the replay telecast of the Philippines-Malaysia Friendly Match that was held last February 29, 2012. As a true Philippine Azkals fan, of course I was there to watch the game live. The game ended with a 1-1 draw. Both teams played well, but our National Team deserves to be commended as they showed significant improvement in their style of play, tactics and teamwork. The biggest boost for last game’s line-up was the presence of our priced goal keeper, Neil Etheridge. The team seemed more comfortable having him manning the goal. And he played very well last game, making a lot of precious saves from Malaysia’s attacks. For me, he was the Man of the Match.

I had the opportunity to meet this fine young man last Monday, February 27, 2012 at the Makati Shangri-la. I was invited by my friend Kathย to attend a bloggers event and shadow for her as she can’t attend because of work. It was the Powerade ION4 Press and Bloggers Meet with Neil Etheridge. Neil is the newest brand ambassador for the sports drink.

Everyone must probably have their own collection. Mine grew as I traveled around during the past 3 years. I chose to collect Starbucks City Tumblers because they were usable, at the same time they can be good souvenirs. So, everyone, meet my growing tumbler collection… ๐Ÿ™‚

So looking back at 2011, I was able to list down the top 11 grateful moments that stood out and made last year memorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was able to try this new service of Cebu Pacific Air when I flew to Hong Kong last weekend. Because our flight was so early, at 5:25am, I opted to try this web check-in thing to buy some time, instead of going to the airport 2-3 hours early. So what is it about this new feature that made me try it? Here are some info and FAQs:

The tag line:

Check-in online, to avoid the line!

About the service:ย 

Check-in online and avoid the airport counter line! With Cebu Pacificโ€™s web check-in service, you can go the web and check-in for your flight 48 hours up to 4 hours before your departure time. This service is currently available for all airbus flights.
