Gigs of the New Normal: Linggo ng Musikang Pilipino

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Hey there, Bingers! I bet you do miss attending concerts, events, and gigs as much as I do. To be honest, I REALLY DO!!! Before the whole COVID thing happened, I frequent a bar in Cubao every weekend, the now closed TodayXFuture. Also, it has been a hobby of my friends and I to have a pre-game either in Cubao X or Katipunan. There is something about watching live gigs and enjoying the artistry of local artists and musicians. So, now that we are on the sixth month of staying at home, I bet we all have been craving for the experience again. Well, worry no more because Linggo ng Musikang Pilipino is here to give our fill.

The Thing About Keto and Why I Stopped It | The Little Binger

The Thing About Keto and Why I Stopped It

Reading Time: 3 minutes

We all want to lose weight for different reasons – for our health, to achieve the norms of the society, or  to feel better. Personally, I lost weight for both health purposes and to feel good about myself. Growing up, I was a fat kid. My heaviest was at over 100 kg! As a fat kid, I was teased, bullied, and skipped on opportunities. It helped that I had the brains and I was always on top of class but other than that, being fat was bad for me overall. So, when I reached the age of 20, I became more self-conscious thus the drive to lose weight. In doing so, I tried different approaches: working out, health supplements, keto diet, and now Intermittent Fasting. Let’s talk about the keto diet. When I did it in 2017-2018, I saw RESULTS! But I stopped after almost a year despite being satisfied with it and here are why:

It's Okay Not To Be Okay. And Other Pandemic Moods.

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Do you still remember how you were before this whole COVID pandemic happened? It has only been over 100 days since Metro Manila (and eventually the whole country) was put on lockdown but to me it already feels like a whole damn year! As someone who lives a fast-paced and multi-faceted life, the abrupt pause on my life is so impactful! This, I am sure, is not an “only me” thing. My friends complained the same thing over our Zoom e-numans and we agreed on one thing: It’s okay not to be okay. Bingers, let’s sit down for a few minutes, look back at how the pandemic has affected us, and accept the present and what the future holds for us.  Read more about It’s Okay Not To Be Okay.

REVIEW: Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 - Tablet on A Budget | The Little Binger

REVIEW: Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 - Tablet on A Budget

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The world is now hit by the pandemic and it is not easy for everyone. Among the hardest hit is everybody’s budget. However, that does not mean that we have to cut ourselves from occasional treat or reward. In fact, we should love ourselves more. Well, at least, that’s what I told myself when I purchased a new device- Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0. Many are saying that tablets are now not as necessary as they were before with powerful phones hitting the market now. But I have some activities that are better done on tablets than on phone. So to be practical, I recently bought this budget tablet from Samsung! Its specs are perfect for the price and so far, I am satisfied. Here’s my review:
