If you are a mountain climber and wanted to reach the summit of Mount Everest, you’ll see a lot of things while you’re on your way to the summit, including the bodies of those climbers who died at the Mount Everest. But you couldn’t share those what you’ve seen to your family or perhaps to the world until you’ll reach the base.
But now, with the eight 3G base stations along the route to the base camp of the Mount Everest set by the Nepalese telecommunication company, Ncell, you can not text or call anyone in the world to tell your stories and messages. And not only that, you can even surf the internet, check emails, update your blog or even chat with someone using your favorite Messenger software, or make a video call via Skype while you are at the summit of the mountain.
The coverage of the network includes the Everest’s summit through the Ncell base station located near the Everest base camp at 5,200 meters.
Other than that, climbers can now:
get weather updates
get safety information
send SOS messages whenever they encounter problems while on their way to the summit and back
and if you’re dying, since getting your body down the mountain is impossible, you can now tell your loveones your last message.

As of writing this post, my son CJ is already 1-year and 5-month old.
At the age of 11-month old he could walk properly without our aid and could even run. And that was also the time when he started disturbing me while doing my blogging and Facebooking activities.
There were times that I hit him. I did it not because I was angered by what he’d done but because I just wanted to tell him that what he did wasn’t right anymore. And I tried not to hit him while I was still in the state of anger because I know that during that time, I couldn’t control my self in hitting him and I might killed him with that. And besides, disciplining a child while you are in the state of anger is not effective and might cause trauma to your child.

Facebook and Farmville In Maasin City
This afternoon, I roamed around the city, checking every internet cafe here to see if internet users use Facebook or are playing Farmville.
So far, I found out that only three internet users in two internet cafe playing Farmville while there were lots of users who were using Facebook. In Omnibus Internet Cafe, almost all users at the time that I came in were using Facebook but none was playing Farmville or any games in Facebook.
I just don’t know if those internet users here in Maasin City who have their own internet connection at their homes were playing games especially Farmville.

During the interview made by Fanhouse boxing writer, Freddie Roach, one of the famous boxing trainer, said that Manny Pacquiao broke the nose of a certain boxer Tuesday.
Right now, we’re using Rashaad Holloway, we have David Rodela, Ray Beltran, and, there was this one other kid from Detroit, but I forget his name right now. But Manny broke his nose yesterday, so he’s out.
I don’t know if it’s a proof that Manny Pacquiao really is strong. But in the other side, it only tells us that his sparmate is not that really good.
Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito’s show down will be on November 13. Both boxers are still preparing for the fight. However, Margarito’s team told reporters that Margarito is already ready even if the fight will be today.

I am planning to buy a reconditioned Suzuki Minivan with 3 cylinder 12 valves 660cc engine and air-conditioning unit. My question is, is it good to buy it or not?
Buying a newly reconditioned suzuki minivan with 3 cylinder 12 valves 660cc engine and air-conditioning unit is just fine. But the price of it if you’ll buy it from the dealers are too high already which ranges from PhP185,000 to PhP220,000 depending on its features and accessories.
I visited earlier today a display center here in Maasin City, and I found this info:
A Suzuki Minivan with the following features:
12 valve / 3 cylinder / 660 cc engine
Manual Transmission in 2WD/4WD and 5 Speed
Brand new upholstery which includes matting, sidings, ceilings seat covers
With air spoiler, rain gutter, am radio, tinted, hubcap, spare tire, jack, tire wrench
mag wheels and roof accessory
The price of it is PhP216,000 with free TPL insurance and LTO Registration changed to buyer’s name.
The Negative side
But the problem with it is that the engine is quite smaller to drive the carry minivan especially when the air-conditioning unit is on. In other words, the engine will be overloaded when everything plugged are running.
