This is actually a dream come true!
Last July, I opened a new domain on wordpress to give space to my much awaiting comics, which is The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. It’s a bunch of Filipino (Tagalog) comic strips that focuses on the friendship of the characters Milk and Coffee and friends.
The story line came out of no where, when I kept on wearing my weird shades and I started drawing my mini me. That’s explain why ‘Coffee’ had this bug-eye/heart-shaped shades. While the other characters are based on people I encounter and some friends.
The comics is in Tagalog, so sorry for the English-speaking fellas who are following me. It’s actually a risk because I don’t have an idea how it will go since I’m never familiar with the local SEO and how the new site’s Google ranking will climb up. Plus the fact that it’ll be composed of mostly images, I think it will be a great challenge for me.
But anyway, to my Filipino friends here, please support The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. I’d appreciate it if you will follow and like our posts both on blogs and Facebook.
Just kindly go to these link and hit like:
Thank you so much!
This blog will never close, by the way. I have plenty of poems to share to you, so please, please stay tuned!
A couple of weeks ago, I was also back in my beloved game Granado Espada. And it was a dream come true because as some of you know I love this game more than World of Warcraft, cucumber on ice and any hot cow burgers in the world, and this is where I found true love in a MMORPG. Although I’ve been busy with a million and one things in my daily life, I could feel that I’ll be hooked again in this game. Thank you to my brand new laptop that can accommodate such high definition game and I’ll be rocking again world, err, I forgot what it is called; so no more dead air during weekends and free time. But anyways, many things have changed and been added in-game. There are the settings, notifications and, well, there so many of them I don’t what the game call it. I think it will take time for me to know more about it again. I just feel great because on my first day of the come back I quickly learned some few in-game new stuffs. First thing, I recognize is already a reward system where they give away extra experience points every time you come back in-game. And add to that the freebies when you answer surveys. With that, I recently got 3 pair of wings (expires in 15 days) for free, some free costumes (with expiration that I don’t remember how long) and the usual buff items.
The funny thing about the come back, though, is that I don’t know the game controls anymore. I was like a reborn kid looking for tutorials just to get my memories of the good old days back in the stitches of my cerebral capacity. It is actually the same feeling like I know everything but I just forgot everything about it (huh?) — in other words, amnesia. But I think I will get there and will welcome a couple of eye bags soon because I’m really, really going to re-study everything.
I also missed my Viki (Count Francis) a lot deeper, especially our summoning and the puny enemy-squashing sessions, which I did right after I chew and digest the nostalgic control navigation self-refresher course. I remember each giants I want to use every time there are mobs, and while writing this I wanted to visit the forgotten territories for more mobs to kill. I noticed that there are new “Stance” which features new summons. I just need to level up in order for me to start the quest to get it. But before that, I remembered how I needed to farm more summoning items in some selected areas of the world so I can enjoy the forgotten territories. Hopefully, I won’t messed up with the other game items, in which I’m still trying to relearn their use from scratch.
On the other hand, my unfinished quests are quite hard to track back in spite of the feature that tells me what to do next. I guess I will leave some in an incubator and just let time flies until I’m all ready to complete it. I think it will never be too late to finish those.
The only thing that’s not back in-game is the noisy chatroom. It’s full of cobwebs just right at this point. Most of them are not longer active, although I see some of the fellas on Facebook. I guess I have to show them that I’m playing and blogging again, so they’d get motivated to come back as well.
Anyways, stay tune for more updates about the my life in and outside the game. I wish you keep reading this blog full of random things in my head.
I welcomed the 2013 New Year with flu (Yey!) but that won’t stop me from checking the coolest app that you must have this new year.
To be honest, I’m already attached to my Samsung Galaxy S3, and even now that the iPhone5 and iPad mini were already launched in the market, I haven’t gotten a second thought of replacing my mobile phone and my Galaxy tab 8.9.
Last month, I barely downloaded apps for my gadgets, but I chose the ones that made me feel the thrill, cuteness and knowledge. But even the year ends, I still believe that these Apps should welcome the new year with you!
1. Dead Trigger
If you’re a fan of the latest zombie movies and series, you must be enjoying Dead Trigger already. If not, you got to download this! And although Samsung Galaxy S3 has higher definition when it comes to graphics and screen color, the best experience is still in my Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 when I play this game. You know, the larger the screen, the better the view, and the more you see the zombie fast approaching.
Everything in the game is cool, bloody and heart-stopping, except the control is kind of difficult because you’re hands has to be good in navigating touch screen buttons without looking. (You will get used to it if you often play the game, though.) And for those who get easily dizzy with first-person game, you can always adjust the movement sensitivity in the options, just like what everyone is doing in the counter strike. It affects somehow your in-game speed in turning and moving around, but it adds thrill.
Moreover, the fun part here is you can use weapon other than guns to kill zombies, like chainsaw, crossbow, brain grinder and more. Some are available when you buy credits via site or when you save in-game cash.
Just a reminder: when you start this game, get ready to be addicted.
If you don’t want zombie games but want a cool and cute shooting game that will enhance your anti-terrorist skill, well, this one is for you!
Cute — yes — because you’ll be shooting these bubble head, little terrorists. The game is either you do survival mode or campaign mode or the mini games. And same as the Dead Trigger, more thrill awaits in-game. You can upgrade your weapon and buy health and special items by purchasing using in-game cash. Well, you can also shoot birds and other special characters, other than the terrorists, to gain special items — just keep your eyes open for them.
Controls are also the same, but I don’t why I am able to shoot better here in than in shooting the zombies in Dead Trigger. Perhaps, here, you don’t have to move around. All you have to do is to aim and aim — which is sensitivity-friendly — without the after-game dizzy feeling.
Adorable, cute and lovable unknown creature. I feel like they revived the NeoPets or Tamagochi with Pou. He or she is totally costumizable every time he reaches a certain level. You can feed him, play the mini games, make him sleep, cure him when he’s sick and give him a bath. Best app that you can check from time to time.
What I like about this app is that it has a global ranking. That means you will be able to see what other Pou fans are up to on their own pets. You can view who leads the mini games and tops the rank of the best looking Pou, and your friend’s Pou (if you know their Pou’s name). It is really fun and it doesn’t waste too much of your phone/tabs battery.
4. (Andwhatdoyahknow!!!) There’s Hangaroo 2!
If you miss this Kangaroo and looking for more sensible game that will challenge you in general knowledge, sports, popular quotes, history, etc; well, he’s back with same interface with lots of new categories, fun and learning! Never did this game disappoint me when I’m so bored in the house.
Same as ever game mechanics, you just have to guess the word(s) to free the Kangaroo. 4 mistakes and he’ll see him hanged, but don’t worry no real animal is harmed in this game…So, please enjoy!
5. Lastly, Easy Touch
Here’s another reason why iPhone has to sue Android. Just kidding. Well, this application, of course, is iPhone-inspired but design perfectly for Android phones.
This app will enable you to navigate the home and other phone features without pressing the home button. As you know, the numero uno problem of most smartphones are the damaged home screen button. This app will help you reduce your phone’s chances of experiencing same trouble.
Some people said it was hard to uninstall to Android phones but no need to worry, I believe the app has already been updated and you’ll see the app instruction how to navigate, uninstall and even change the button design.
I find it helpful because I’m worried of getting damaged home and lock keys; but it works perfectly fine with my Samsung Galaxy S3 because it covers all the functions I need instead of pressing the home key.
More Apps to be reviewed this January, so keep on reading! Happy New Year!
Count me in to the number of gamers who got addicted to the fun world of Sims. I enjoyed the game a lot especially when it was released in Nintendo DS. I just stopped playing Sims when I became a busy player of Granado Espada and Flyff, both MMORPG’s. However, still, Sims took most of my time because it was irresistably addicting. I even skipped a few meals and my favorite tv series for it.
I just found the game for free when I visited the Google Play Store. The game was released by the same game publisher, Electronic Arts Nederland BV.
Actually, there’s nothing too much to expect from the game, except for the mobile phone experience. It features same cool stuffs like pets, toddlers, jobs, relationship with other Sims and the “Wohoo”. And, new features are only limited to the dress-up closet, children store, dog items and wedding wear.
It is really fun! It requires internet connection, though, to get things running. You may also need more than 1GB storage to fit in the 826MB size of this app.
But I think it’s worth it to download this game app. I haven’t encountered any lag or force close problem on my Galaxy Tab 8.9 so far. You should try it on your device.
After the reformat, my Galaxy Tab 8.9 still performs well. Well, actually, much even better than before. It gets faster (perhaps because of the upgraded version) and it gets additional feature like the fit-to-screen button for every application.
Recently, I got bored. This leads me to downloading 4 not-so-new apps that are more addicting and helpful for me, which I would like share with you, guys.
First is the 1945 iFighter.

I’m a super fan of this game. My best friend Ryan and I have spent lots of time and money for this game when we were still addicted to Arcade games. Yeah, we love this more than the Street Fighter. And if you guys have Arcade game hang-over, this is the best game for you.
Game control is not a problem. You can choose from joystick, touch and motion controls. It’s up to you where you’re more comfortable. I’m on Mission 8 of hard level so far, and I’m not sure about how many Mission it has.
Cool thing about this game is that it has two jets that you can unlock when you finish the mission.

I’m beginning to look for more fun, free games and apps at Android Market as well as at the Samsung App market. Recently, they just added NFS, Temple Run and, the famous camera app for iPhones, the Instagram. Of course, I have them all now in my list, plus I downloaded some writing and music stuff for additional entertainment.
Need For Speed Shift, from EA, gives you great racing experience that allows you to drive and drift cars by stirring your device. Graphic is close to perfect. But if you’re easy to get sick with lots of motions, this is not adviceable for you.
Personally, I’m a bit senstive when it comes to movement but this one is jusy fine for me. I spend almost two hours for it everyday but I never got dizzy. I saw this on app on James Younghusband’s tweet. I just went curious when I found this on Samsung App store. Besides, Andrei loves racing games that’s why he plays it more than I do.
While Temple Run gives me a rush of adrenaline. It reminds me of the Playstation game called Pepsiman. This game requires your alertness to perform jumps, turns and slides in order to dodge obstacles and escape from the monkeys. I recommend this to those who want exciting rush.
On the other hand, Instagram. I was expecting a lot from this app. I thought it would replace the camera360 on my Galaxy Tab 8.9 but I was wrong. All it does is too edit your photos into limited effects and share it to different social networks including the the instagrams’ website.

I didn’t know Drei is already very good at Dungeon Defender. Although he has a characterr of his own in my account, I just couldn’t believe that he’ll finish a round with flying colours using my character. Just a couple of nights ago, he played with my charater and defeated a new boss – Goblin Mech. Well, I was the one who set up the towers, but I paused the game for a while and went to “the John”. When I came back, I saw him playing it. Good thing, he knew that I’m blogging such game scenarios, therfore, he took a lot of SS (screenshot). Thanks, Hubb!
According to him, it was a close range monster. Big damage when he caught you with his double sword arms. He didn’t notice the machine’s weakness or his game strategies, all he knew is that he kept on shooting it until it died.
I tried to redo the game with a higher difficulty but, unfortunately, I died a couple of times. Yeah, he was right — blasting damage when he caught you cornered. But I found out that you have to hit on the goblin who controls the monster machine to give him a larger damage. I guess, I just need to increase my level a bit to kill this monster in insane mode.
By the way, off topic, someone mentioned to me that tomorrow Apple will be releasing or presenting the iPad 3. I’m excited to see it, I just hope this isn’t a super advance April fool’s day news.
That’s all folks.
