Skype is Down

When I tried to login to skype, all I could get was a loading page.

My workmates said there having same problem too. So I went ahead and search the net about this problem.

Here's what I found:
This is according to Skype:
Earlier today, we noticed that the number of people online on Skype was falling, which wasn’t typical or expected, so we began to investigate. Skype isn’t a network like a conventional phone or IM network – instead, it relies on millions of individual connections between computers and phones to keep things up and running. Some of these computers are what we call ‘supernodes’ – they act a bit like phone directories for Skype. If you want to talk to someone, and your Skype app can’t find them immediately (for example, because they’re connecting from a different location or from a different device) your computer or phone will first try to find a supernode to figure out how to reach them.
Under normal circumstances, there are a large number of supernodes available. Unfortunately, today, many of them were taken offline by a problem affecting some versions of Skype. As Skype relies on being able to maintain contact with supernodes, it may appear offline for some of you.
What are we doing to help? Our engineers are creating new ‘mega-supernodes’ as fast as they can, which should gradually return things to normal. This may take a few hours, and we sincerely apologise for the disruption to your conversations. Some features, like group video calling, may take longer to return to normal.
Stay tuned to @skype on Twitter for the latest updates on the situation – and many thanks for your continued patience in the meantime.

Honda Beat Scooter Review

After using my Honda Beat scooter for a year, I decided to make this review for the benefit of those who are  planning to buy this scooter. I'm not gonna lie, the points you will read below contain more positive statements about this motorcycle simply because I loved it and still loving it. I will try my best to sound unbiased.

Climbing Osmena Peak Traverse to Kawasan Falls in Cebu

At 1,013 meters above sea level, we reached the summit of Osmena Peak in Dalaguete, Cebu. It is considered to be the highest in the island. We were welcomed by a beautiful sunset view created by the sun hiding from the slopes of the mountains of Negros.

Trekking from Budlaan to Sirao Peak in Cebu

The Babag trekking group did another adventurous trekking. This time from Budlaan to Sirao; to conquer Sirao Peak.

We trekked thru the Kabang River in Budlaan then climb Sirao Peak which is approximately 750 Meters above sea level.

How we went there:

We met at sunny hills in Talamban then rode a habal-habal (25 Pesos each) going to Budlaan. Then from Budlaan, we went down to Kabang river and started trekking. We passed by 4 wonderful waterfalls then we   trekked to Sirao Peak. This whole trek started from 9 AM and ended at 5PM(where we reached the summit).

From Sirao, we rode habal2 again down to JY square. Fare is 50 pesos each.
























Green Pasture at the Green Lagoon Park in Compostela Cebu

Everytime I get to have a holiday break, I always see to it that I spend it with the things I love. One of these things is going to the beaches.

Unforgettable Overnight Stay at Karancho Beach Resort in Mactan Cebu

I had the chance to go back to Karancho beach resort in Mactan island of Cebu. This was the place where I had my first try of kayaking. That was 3 years ago and a lot have changed.

Our group went on an overnight stay just to enjoy a holiday break. We arrived at the resort at around 6 in the evening. Just the right time for the overnight rates to kick in.

The entrance fee was P60 each person and the cottage was P800. This is just good for 6PM to 6AM use. The cottage was just ok in terms of the size and there was only one outlet and only good for the lights. I had to say one outlet because we had a problem with it. We brought a laptop, a modem and a set of speakers. Too bad we were not able to use any one of them.

Anyway, time to prepare our dishes for the night. We brought along fish and pork to grill. We had to pay P50 for using the grill area. Of course we had other food like seaweeds (guso) and bam-i. We bought rice from outside. Good thing there is no drinks and and food corkage.
