Filipino Yogis and Yoginis to Follow on Instagram

Ever since I delved into yoga, I had been looking into a lot of inspiring yogis and yogini on instagram. I came across spectacular yogis like Dylan Werner, Kino Yoga, Patrick Beach and Jacob Manning to name a few. Yes, I’m quite impressed with their feat and just seeing what they can do just strives me to be better at my practice. It also made me wonder. Are there any Filipino personalities practicing yoga on instagram? The search wasn’t that hard as seasoned Filipino yogi friends gave their share of answers. It wasn’t also hard to find Filipino yogis using the hashtag #yogaph or #yogaphilippines on the instagram search. Here are some Filipino Yogis and Yoginis I had been following for a while. I think they share the same quality of inspiration as their international counterparts.

PacSafe's first flagship store

The World’s First Pacsafe Flagship Store Opens in Glorietta 5

I have been an avid PacSafe user ever since 2008. I have gone through a number of PacSafe products from the CarrySafe pouch, two generations of PacSafe Wallets (up to the RFID versions), Camera bags like the CamSafe Venture V12 Sling Bag and V16 Sling Pack and the handy CarrySafe 100 camera strap. It’s amazing to see how their Anti-Theft products has evolved in terms of functionality and design. Now I’m glad they are expanding and is more accessible by finally having their own flagship store at the ground floor of Glorietta 5 in Makati. A first also on the global scale for the brand.

Field Test | Manfrotto MKC3-P01 Compact Photo Kit Review

If you like shooting landscapes, night skies or even architecture, a tripod is an essential tool for these kind of photography. For beginners in photography, I always stress how important good quality tripods when buying one. Think about it, you have a really costly camera on top of it, would you risk your thousands-of-pesos investment on a flimsy tripod? There are already several trusted brands already and one of them is Manfrotto. For the past few months I have been using the Manfrotto MKC3-P01 Compact Photo Kit. It’s a model that’s been out for quite a while and is leaned as a good starter tripod but still sturdy enough for rugged use.

The Fuse Chicken Titan Loop

Gear | Fuse Chicken Titan Loop: Toughest USB Cable on Earth

Let’s admit it. Apple makes great products from Macbooks to iPhones and iPads but they suck at making cables for device connectivity and charging. Ask any user and they’ll sing the same tune – their cables doesn’t last that long. That’s why numerous option from third-party manufacturers seek to address this concern. Fuse Chicken is one of them with their Titan line of nearly indestructible cables. I had the pleasure of trying the Titan Loop, a 9-inch long cable that can be looped as a keychain.
