Just got an e-mail from GoDaddy saying that Godaddy can now be read in Filipino!
I've been a loyal customer of Godaddy for over 15 years and I've been used to using Godaddy in English (and currency in US Dollars). I was curious to check out the Filipino version of the site and it's not just the text that's in Filipino, but they also provide local phone numbers for customer service. And there's a mobile number too!
So what are you waiting for? Puna na kay Tatay!

141 and Beyond.
I never thought that I would see
A tweet longer than 140.
RT then send a DM to me,
So you can say more in intimacy.
What am I talking about? This.

Rowdy he is, Piper he be- Tribute to WWE's Hall of Famer Roddy Piper.
He's the wrestler everyone wants to see
Checkered kilt he dress
Hot Rod's always ready to mess
Thank you for all the years of being your best.
Rest in Peace.

U.S. President Barack Obama finally gets his own Twitter account, and that's @POTUS. What does that stand for? President Of The United States!
The account though is not new as the handle Twitter handle @POTUS was created in June 2013, almost 2 years before it ever got used.President Obama. In the Oval Office. Tweeting. #WelcomeToTwitter, @POTUS! http://t.co/SzWXltjNK0 pic.twitter.com/ce4DurwYXj— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 18, 2015
In less than 24 hours, around 1.6 Million people started following @POTUS. His 1st tweet also received over 226K retweets and 301K favorites.
With the astonishing number of engagements and followers in the hundreds of thousands, it would be surprising to see people mentioning @POTUS. But who's the very 1st person @POTUS replies to? Unexpectedly, it was to @BillClinton who asked if the @POTUS Twitter handle gets handed down to the next U.S. President. From a social media standpoint, this tweet is a brillant way of the Clintons' capitalizing from the surge of @POTUS social media traffic and making their presence known.
While @BillClinton does pose a legitimate question since Preisdent Obama's presidency is soon to end, it does so in a very wittingly way especially using the hashtag #askingforafriend as a subtle (and clever) way for referring to @HillaryClinton.@POTUS replies and tries to be witty too asking if anyone is interested in the @FLOTUS account which stands for First Lady of the United States.

|The entrance. Seats are one floor below with door leading to the garden facing Taal.|
|While you're in line, this is what you'll see.|
One thing that impressed me is even the barista's view while mixing drinks is a specatcular photo-like panoramic view of Taal. This surely would add to the barista's concocting inspiration.
Eventually, when other establishments here would open, the back side with the view would also be shared. But for now, Starbucks customers enjoy a very long stretch of a garden to roam around and find several Instagram-worthy locations.
