Got my first Google AdSense payout from Western Union!

Back in February, I have posted about how my Google AdSense got finally approved. Fast forward to the end of September, I finally reached the $100 threshold. However, I still have to wait for the 21st of the following month to receive another message from Google.

My first Google AdSense payout!

My first Google AdSense payout!

First of all, this amount was from February until September — a paltry amount compared to other serious people for ad revenues. However, I have also noticed that September was actually good because I had about $30 for a single month. For October, I have also surprisingly reached $50. Let’s hope that this monthly average becomes the norm, so I at least have a $100 every 2 months. Not much but enough to pay for the domain and hosting fees.LOL

Movie Review: ‘Bad Genius’ is Mad Genius

Movie Review - Bad Genius is Mad Genius - BRYOLOGUE

Yet I’m back with another movie review! When a film experience is that good and my mind is full to the brim with ideas, it surely reels me back to write here.

It has been a year since my half-a-month sojourn in Thailand. What better way to commemorate this than with a Thai movie? While I have seen a couple of internationally-known Thai movies in years, I haven’t watched a single one inside the cinema.

While lazily browsing through Facebook videos, I came across the trailer for Nattawut Poonpiriya’s ‘Bad Genius’ on 9GAG. I have wondered if it would be shown here in the Philippines because the trailer got me hooked. And then, I was surprised to see it on Sureseats! While we originally planned to watch ‘Happy Death Day’, I thought the latter could wait.

First of all,  I was delighted to see that the cinema was almost packed with viewers. I have not seen a single promotion of this film on TV. But as a good word-of-mouth is a foolproof way of promoting a movie (case in point: ‘Kita Kita‘), I should not have been surprised, non?

*MAJOR SPOILER WARNING*

The movie revolves around a group of students with varying degrees of intellectual capability and economic resources. You have the geniuses Lynn (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying) and Bank (Chanon Santinatornkul), the ditzy but good-natured Grace (Eisaya Hosuwan) and rich-boy Pat (Teeradon Supapunpinyo).

Decision fatigue and uniform dressing: I wore the same shirt for 5 days

Contrary to what you have initially thought, I was not pertaining to just one shirt.

As what I have previously expressed before June ended, it’s getting cumbersome deciding every morning. But the no-fuss, solid dark shirt for the day would have been liberating.

So last Sunday, on our routine night in SM, I took the plunge. I was looking forward to a carefree week and I could start it with a perfect black. round-neck shirt. Likewise, my ceiling price was less than Php 150.

The perfect black shirt. I’ll get five in one color!
