Trip to Singapore: It’s Over

By AJ Martin | January 23, 2018 | 1

I’m gonna have to split this up into several articles, otherwise, a single article will be too unorganized and long. With that out of the way, let’s get to it. I think I mentioned it in my previous article, but I’ll put it here as well. This trip was kinda impulsively planned by me and a friend. I met her through a video game and we got close ever since I came back to the…

PayMaya Continues to Rise

By AJ Martin | January 16, 2018 | 1

I’ve made a few articles on PayMaya and I noted that PayMaya is becoming popular now because of the abundance of cell phones and the convenience of not having to use cash. They need some more work in my opinion, but they are definitely on the right track. The convenience actually saved me a trip home a few days ago. I went to the dentist and after a quick check, they said I needed to get…

Trip to Singapore

By AJ Martin | January 9, 2018 | 8

Replacing these with newer, better jeepneys will be a huge improvement. Some of the ideas they were throwing around sounded really good…

Things we Used to do: Some Fads back in School

By AJ Martin | December 26, 2017 | 2

I wrote an article some time ago about a common activity we used to do in school, spider fighting. I’m pretty sure I intended for it to a series of articles about activities and games we played back then, but I don’t think I ever did write anything past the spider fights. A lot of the other stuff we did were way tamer than spider fighting. Each year seemed to bring a new hobby that…

Cryptocurrencies and their rise

By AJ Martin | December 20, 2017 | 8

Over the past few months, cryptocurrencies, most prominently Bitcoin, has exploded in popularity. A lot of people are starting to invest, mine and really consider getting into Bitcoin. For those unaware, cryptocurrencies are virtual currencies that aren’t regulated or connected to any country/bank. This makes them fairly unstable and potentially unsecured, but they are also very useful and convenient. A lot of OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) are actually using Bitcoin to send the money they…
