Midway Minkay Beach Resort

Wife and I went to Midway Minkay beach resort as part of my birthday celebration. We agreed to go out more often while we don't have kids yet. 

The resort is located in the Municipality of Initao, around a 45-minute bus ride from Iligan city where we live. We took a Rural bus transit with a fare of P85 each person.

The resort staff were friendly and polite. Area was clean and we enjoyed the white sands. We rented a room for two for P1,799 a night with complimentary breakfast. The food was great and there were a lot of amenities that you can enjoy such as renting banana boat, zip line and jet skis. 

Overall, we had an awesome time. I highly recommend the place.

Here is a video I created about the resort. Contact numbers and rates are found in the video.

July Google Adsense Payment Report

Gikan pakog laba medyo kapuy pa. :)

But it was a great day yesterday. I received another payment from Google Adsense with a significant increase compared to the month of June.



Month of June - 387.53 USD
Month of July - 529.15 USD (I received 24,159.71 Php)

A difference of 141.62 is great at least for me. This inspires me to keep going.

Traffic: The overall number of Sessions in my sites for the month of July is 39,027. June had the overall traffic of 28,666.

I am happy with my earnings so far and currently looking into affiliate marketing to add to it.

Unta musaka pa next month.

Wide VS Macro VS Fish Eye VS Normal IPhone Lens

As part of my goal to learn mobile photography and videography, I bought a 3 in 1 mobile phone lens from Lazada. In this post, I will give example of images and videos using the lenses.

All the images and videos below were taken using the Iphone 6s plus back camera.

I really liked the wide angle and macro lenses. I will be using wide angle for videos and macro for photos.

Here are some shots I took with the Macro lens.

Google Adsense Achievement: 1 Million Impressions


My Adsense account was approved on the year 2011. I earned money with it from 2011 to 2012 through niche sites getting traffic from search engines. The year 2012 was also the year of the first penguin update. The update affected all of my sites and suddenly put a halt to my earnings. 

Since 2012, I had not used Adsense in making money online until this year. So from 2011 to 2012 and 2016, my Adsense account lifetime ad impressions hit 1 million.

Google was kind enough to remind me of this small milestone. Thanks G!
