ELLO: The Trendy New Social Network Start Up

A brand new social networking went viral last Thursday, 25 of September.  And it was marked as the "anti-FACEBOOK" because it's ads FREE!

ELLO was created as a "PRIVATE" social network and was recently opened its door on an invitational basis only.


Many are curious that ELLO becomes most talked about topic today from USA and now here in the PHILIPPINES.


I too was curious, so I take the chance to get information from ELLO. And was caught with their statement:

ELLO doesn't sell ads. Nor do we sell data about you to third party.

A bit curious about the no ad-policy! WHY?  read more HERE >>> WHY NO ADS.


YOU ARE NOT A PRODUCT.  Yes! We are not a product indeed that is why I like this new concept/platform from ELLO and I want to be part of this new and trending social networking site.

Thanks to PAUL BUDNITZ, BERGER & FOHR and MODE SETS for this creative collaboration, for this we can socialize, make friends and be part of a viral site that will not lead us to sell and collecting our personal data, representing our social links/connections for profit, indeed that is too creepy and thus unethical!

According to ELLO, if we join the site they will just collect information related to our per visits, this way they can get information that can help understand how people interact and to make ELLO a better site

To join ELLO, you need to have a friend or someone that is already in the network. Or you can REQUEST an invitation by visiting ELLO.


Hope they can fulfill their promises, to make ELLO purely a social networking site and not a mere advertising and promotional platform propaganda.

Brother DCP-J100 Multifunction Printer (BLACK) - Review

In the early 2010 I bought my first Canon PIXMA MP250 printer specifically because it has a 3 in 1 spec and I just love it. The problem with my old unit was that when I convert it to a CISS(Continuous Ink Supply System)in order to enjoy immense savings on printer ink many problems arise just like it cannot print properly(paper jam), color print quality is just disappointing, very bad performance, etc. I payed a lot for it still the same problem occurred, wasted much of my time and money for its repair and maintenance alone.

I decide to purchase a new printer, my first choice is to buy EPSON L110.  A printer that is already converted into a CISS, so it yields superb savings for only PHp4,995. But I have doubts with this product when I saw it personally.  Yes, the unit is a space saver, the problem is that (1) It cannot print different type of papers. (2) It is a single function printer, and I am looking for the same function I have with my previous unit. And lastly, (3) It only has a 1 year warranty. 

Another EPSON brand that has a 3 in 1 spec printer, EPSON L210. So like it, it has also a space saver design, an all-in-one printer, already converted to CISS and it has a 1 year warranty. Only problem is that it is too expensive for me, the price rate is PHp7,795. 

I've budgeted my money, I need to buy lower than PHp7K+.

So I look for another brand that can perfectly satisfy me. Bought it at MicroValley-Gaisano South Mall Branch, a bit bulky but with printer, scanner and copier this brand is seem indestructible for only PHp4,950 and take note it has a 2 YEAR WARRANTY. Isn't it great?

BROTHER DCP-J100 InkBenefit

A printer for all in one use(copier, scanner and ink jet printer), this can be a quality and value for a budget mother like me.

BROTHER DCP-J100 is very affordable. It has a low ink cost and deliver a super high page-yield InkBenefit cartridges, this is like your printer is already converted into a CISS.

It has a Reduce Ink wastage with an individual ink cartridge system that allows you to replace only the empty cartridge.

Refillable ink cost only PHp390 each.

It can print:

BLACK - 2400* pages
COLORED - 1300* pages

Approximately the cartridge yield is declared in accordance with ISO/IEC 24711.

DIMENSION: 435 (W) x 374 (D) x 161 (H) mm
WEIGHT : 7.1 Kg

Just to see personally the sample print of this product, I myself tried and print a colored picture using an ordinary type of a paper and this is the result.

Not bad and as of now I am very satisfied with the printer I bought.

Inside the box it has an installer CD guide, a manual and all supplies and accessories for the printer.

In my case regarding the installation process. I have a defective CD/ROM in my computer so I have to look for a link that will permit me to download the DCP-J100 Installer

And thanks so much to BROTHER for helping me out during the installations.

By the way, Brother Printer support SAVE Mother Earth advocacy called the BROTHER EARTH. When you see ENERGY STAR® means that this is to work together to take care our planet by helping conserve energy and reduce our electricity bills at home and work environment by having a SLEEP MODE Function it automatically reduces our energy/power consumption, that only powers up when you need to print.

A special thanks to MicroValley for giving me a PHp500 Discount coupon + a gift. Meaning I only pay PHp4,450.  Great savings indeed!

If you need an all in one printer right this minute, either for work or for home that is affordable and includes cost and time saving features choose BROTHER DCP-J100 Multifunction Printer.

Happy Place in Davao City

I am a Dabawenya and I am very proud to call my self a native from Davao City.

Here in Davao City we have 182 Barangays arranged into 3 Legislative Districts and 11 administrative districts.

SOURCE: Tax Mapping Division

For 38 years living here, I can say that I haven't known my City well. There are some places that I haven't visited like PAQUIBATO(2)and MARILOG(3) District.

Yes! I belong to 1st District that is why places I've mentioned above are nowhere near me. I am curious to know what is happening in these places and how to go there. It is SAFE or do we need a guide to travel here?

PAQUIBATO DISTRICT 2 compose of 13 Barangays:

Paquibato Proper
Paradise Embak

I heard so much about this place, but most of the news I get are all negative. When the Military decided to establish a camp here the livelihood of the people of Paquibato were affected. But I was wrong, when I saw the pictures from their FACEBOOK PAGE the place was so peaceful and harmonious. Nice place to live. More photos here: ENTER DAVAO

MARILOG DISTRICT 3 compose of 12 Barangays:

Datu Salumay
Marilog Proper

Eager to visit this place again except for BUDA. I've been to BUDA not once but thrice
and I really enjoyed the place. So refreshing! 

Wanted to experience other places like Suawan and Tamugan wherein my parents used to teach the tribes of Davao City. More or less 60 kilometers away from the busiest street of Davao City. Pollution free, noise-free and stress-free!

Suawan River, Davao City

Not so well visited places here in Davao City but soon to be part of your itinerary once you travel to my town. If you decide to visit Davao, visit Davao City Tourism for your guide they will definitely help and assist you in providing assistance and advice on how to visit this places. 

And I will conclude that this will become a HAPPY PLACE in Davao if given a proper promotion.
