Every Plucked String is a Melody - A Harpist in Cebu

One of the least played stringed instruments in the Philippines is the harp. Finding a harpist is like finding a pearl in the ocean. And, I was able to find that kind of pearl a couple of days back.

I was at Parkmall in Cebu looking for something to buy. As I was walking down the center aisle of the place, I heard a sweet smooth sound coming from a harp.

I never thought twice to capture every melody.


Sorry about the audio. It was captured using a cellphone. :)

As soon as the harpist ended his set, I approached him and asked for his name. He is Ronnie Custaños. He is not a schooled musician and learned every note from his father. He has been playing the instrument for over 18 years.

I was very glad to have met with such brilliant talent.

  2. Even the Greek gods are drawn to the melodic power of harps. Jason used it to distract the dragon when he stole the Golden Fleece and fucked all of Europe.

Claim Your Google Adsense Earnings Through Unionbank of the Philippines Wire Transfer

I have been receiving Google Adsense earnings through Western Union every month for the past couple of years. This month, days before my scheduled payout, I got a notification from Google to change my payment method from Western Union to a wire transfer. Over the years, I only use my wife's Unionbank account in all my online transaction so I am not sure if I can use it for Google Adsense. I can only try to add it so I did.

I use the form below to add the new payment method. I only filled up the name on the bank account, bank name, SWIFT BIC, and account number.


Unionbank SWIFT BIC UBPHPHMMXXX.
On the date of payout, I received an email from Google that they sent the money already. I was anxious because I am not sure if that would go through the bank. The bank did not notify my wife or anything. 
Usually, with Western Union, I can get the money once they sent the email with the MTCN code. But with the wire transfer, the only thing I can do is wait. One full day after I received the…
