The First DigitalFilipino E-Commerce Summit in Cebu

When I found out that Janette Toral, the owner of DigitalFilipino, is bringing another event here in Cebu, I got very excited because I know she is the real deal. The last event that I attended to was the Digital Influencers Marketing Summit in which she also spearheaded.

This time, the event is called E-Commerce Summit. It will be the first here in Cebu. The main intention of this summit is apparently to promote e-commerce here in the Philippines. 

Ms. Toral will be joined by prominent e-commerce players and industry practitioners. To name a few, speakers are the following:
  • Jack Madrid, Country Manager, Philippines with the topic of State of E-Commerce and Digital Marketing in the Philippines
  • Atty. JJ Disini, Professor at UP College of Law who will be talking about E-Commerce and Data Privacy: What Every Merchant Needs to Know
  • Dr. Nick Fontanilla, Market Analytics Specialist will be taking up Developing an E-Commerce Measurement Framework
  • Mannix Pabalan, Digital Strategist, Hashtag Digital, Inc. will be speaking about the different Lessons in E-Commerce Marketing: What will work in 2013?
  • Mark Joseph Panganiban, E-Commerce Specialist, with the topic of Lessons Learned in Running an Online Store
  • Chris Ducker, Digital Entrepreneur, who will share about Freelancers Thriving: Online Jobs Growth
  • Orville Tadle – Philippines country representative of who will be talking about Freelancers Thriving: Online Jobs Growth – eLance Experience
  • Randolph Novino, Founder of will be speaking about Using Community, Content and Conversation to Drive E-Commerce Sales
Of course the list will not be complete without Janette Toral who will be tackling about E-Commerce Movers and Shakers, Business, Search, and Social Models for 2013. 

There is really a lot to look forward to in this event and I particularly want to know more about how much  freelancing and online jobs have grown since I personally started having freelance jobs in 2010. I can't wait to hear Chris Ducker's talk about this.

I encourage you to be a part of this awesome event. Here are the details:

DATE: March 23, 2013
VENUE: Diamond Suites & Residences, 8 Apitong corner Escario Street, Cebu City

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.

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.

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…

[Fixed] Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() Error

I operate a couple of job portals that accept online applications. The applications are sent directly to the employer's email. One day, all of the sites cannot send any applications. I was receiving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() in /home3/boyiboyi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gmail-smtp/google-api-php-client/vendor/guzzlehttp/guzzle/src/Handler/CurlFactory.php on line 78

I am using a 3rd party SMTP management plugin called Gmail SMTP Plugin so I contacted them. They checked the error and said everything was fine on their side. They suggested updating my PHP version.


So, I went to the CPanel dashboard in my Hostgator hosting and updated the PHP version from 5.4 to 5.6.

It fixed the error for all of my sites.

How to update the PHP version in Hostgator:

1. Login to your customer portal.
2. Go to Hosting and click on Hosting dashboard
3. Click on manage databases and click Home on the newly opened tab. The class…
