Review Of Susan Boyle's Album

Susan Boyle

Watch out Madonna. Susan Boyle's version of You'll See is way better than yours. She has put more soul to it, especially in this part: "You think that I can never laugh again, you'll see." I'm sure Susan is laughing her way after her album I Dreamed A Dream has been considered one of the fastest-selling albums of the decade.

If you listen to Susan Boyle's I Dreamed A Dream, you will never think that she's a 40-something lady.

But do not try to play Susan Boyle's I Dreamed A Dream while driving as it encourages sleep.

Songs in this album include:

Wild Horses
I Dreamed A Dream
Cry Me A River
How Great Thou Art
You'll See
Daydream Believer
Up To The Mountain
Amazing Grace
Who Was I Born To Be
The End Of The World Silent Night

Review Of Windows 7: Advantages And Disadvantages Of Windows 7 According To Me

Windows 7 Desktop

I bade farewell to Windows Vista last week and welcomed Windows 7. Because of the annoying blue screen of death, I decided to wipe out Vista from my system.

According to some of the actual users of Windows 7 here in the Philippines, my current operating system exhibits fewer blue screen compared with a machine running Windows Vista. Unfortunately, a few minutes after Windows 7 was completely installed, blue screen of death appeared… not just once but thrice.

Nevertheless, I like the graphical user interface of my new OS. It looks like… Vista but more colorful, I would say. I just do not like the gadget (sidebar for Vista). The “always on top” option of Windows 7 is different because I could not make it look like a taskbar. I just installed Google Desktop so that I can always see my analog clock.

They say that Windows 7 is more efficient than Vista in using hardware resources. By that it means the former is faster. But based on my experience, I think they are the same. J

In addition to that, many users think that Windows 7 is more stable than Windows Vista. In other words, there are fewer crashes on Windows 7. But I’m not sure about this because, as I mentioned earlier, BOD appeared after installation of 7.

Start menu is still the same as that of Vista, even though they say that 7 has improved.

The only difference (I think) is that of the taskbar because it shows you a thumbnail preview of a minimized program.

Another thing I like about 7 is that .avi files can be played through Windows Media Player.

I think I’m going to give Windows 7 a month before I can truly say that 7 is better than Vista.

Cheapest Airfare To Cebu City

Philippine Taoist Temple Cebu City

"Airfare to Cebu that time was PHP 56," said my former colleague. So, I accessed Cebu Pacific's official website but couldn't find such airfare promo of Cebu Pacific. If there was indeed an airfare promo of PHP 56, then that would be the cheapest airfare one could have in going to the Queen of the South—Cebu City—from the Land of Promise—Davao City.

Nikon D700: Photos Using Nikon D700

My friend, Christian, came to visit Davao last week. He agreed to take photos (for free) of the available products at JDLCN Micro-Devices and Electronics Supply using his Nikon D700.

Here are some of the shots:

Sunglasses with Bluetooth 2Gb MP3 Player —with this gadget, you can listen to your favorite tunes without those cords.

Spy camera watch—the watch that you need when you want a spy tool that will not draw attention wherever you go.

As you can see, photos taken using DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras, like Nikon D700, are different than merely using point and shoot digital cameras. The shots are fantastic. Nikon D700 can truly transform the not-so-lovely subjects into breathtaking photos.

Thanks Tianx for spending a few hours of your time to take these photos using your Nikon D700.

Lake Sebu This November

Since our Cebu escapade is cancelled because of unavoidable circumstance, we are now planning to visit another "Cebu" this November.

Lake Sebu is one of the tourist spots in South Cotabato, Philippines. December to January are said to be the best months to visit Lake Sebu.

Lake Sebu is seated 3,000 feet above sea level. Boating around the lake is what I want to try, besides eating grilled tilapia (yum yum).

I'm also excited to take photos of Seven Waterfalls located away from Lake Sebu. A hiking trail is available that would lead up to the mountain. But I doubt if we could still go hiking because of limited time.

So far, I only hear good things about Lake Sebu.
