An Eco-Trail Dedicated to IAS

Remember my post about our tree-planting activity in Lio, in Palawan? It’s been more than a year since then and I’m curious to see the progress made of that effort.

I am happy to learn that the management of El Nido Resorts has dedicated a rest stop in the Lio Eco Trail to IASA (International Aviation Services Asia, Inc.), or IAS, my employer.

Aside from the actual growth of the forest itself, this recognition is another tangible proof of the effort put forth by the staff and management of IASA to give back to nature and to do our share in creating a more sustainable world. Efforts like this prove indispensible especially in this time of climate crisis – an effort which ought to be emulated and replicated everywhere.

The job is far from over but this is indeed a step towards the right direction. This recognition only bolsters our determination to press on and create impact. Kudos to IAS!

Taking my Samsung Galaxy A51 for a Test Ride

I don’t consider myself super knowledgeable with gadgets, but can I just say how uh-mazeeeng! my recently bought Samsung phone is? The Samsung Galaxy A51.

It was totally unintentional. All I wanted initially was a model that is NFC-enabled so I can use for my loading business. So like “whatever”, as long as it serves its purpose. But I guess you can say I got more than what I bargained for. Not that it’s a bargain. It’s not cheap. But it does have all the features I would want for a camera which I intend to buy separately. So now I’m actually thinking twice if I should.

I’ve been experimenting with different shots using my Samsung phone and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

I especially love the exposure feature as well as the time lapse in videos. I know it’s not necessarily the most up to date of breakthroughs in technology but it still elicited excitement especially to the geek in me.

Photos are crisp and vibrant.

I think my Samsung Galaxy A51 and I are gonna have a long-lasting relationship.

Check out some of its other features here and all of the other exciting products from Samsung.
