Hog Convention


The 18th Hog Convention and Trade exhibits was held last April 23-25, 2009 at the World Trade Center - Manila in Pasay City. It is an annual affair attended by more than 48 hog raisers association all over the Philippines where the different companies that cater to the industry showcase their latest products and services.

Each company spends a sizable amount each year just to make their exhibit more attractive. This is common practice in trade show exhibits where advertising companies make a killing. Well it is an investment of course. At least if you let the advertisers conceptualize and make the presentation, the exhibitor no longer has to worry what table covers to use at the booth. They would just need to approve that their table top display conveys the right message.

But this year, although the Hog convention went well in general, the booth presentations were not as extravagant as before. Some companies did not even put up a booth. Maybe because of the financial situation we are all in. The good thing is that people still strive to make the connection no matter how life can be. Besides at the end of the day, its the value of what a company can deliver on a day to day basis that counts rather than a yearly exhibit that is all for a show.

A New Lens to Connect

Canon 450D

As a hobbyist, my wife & I have both enjoyed the digital pictures we've taken using our Canon EOS 450D(In the US, it is equivalent to the Canon EOS Rebel XSi) that we bought as a kit(lens included: Canon EF-S 18-55mm). Then, just a few weeks ago we upgraded the lens to Canon EF-S 18-200 mm F3.5-5.6IS. The satisfaction was really invigorating. Its a testimonial that I've posted in my Acobay account.

Speaking of Acobay, its a new social network site where you can share your stuffs and get connected with other people who share the same interest. Its still in the beta release as of now and the circle is growing bigger.

In life, it pays to know that you are connected. Whether it be a network of pet lovers or even book network, the common treads and experience will make you feel related.

Now for the camera enthusiast like me and my wife, lets share and live the passion.

Earth Day 2009


Last April 22, in commemoration for the Earth Day, our company held a short program and planted trees around our plant. We envisioned a continuance of our 2008 Earth Day goals and build up on the momentum that it has created. That for our company, we share the movement in 100 locations, 30 countries worldwide.

In spite of all the economic turmoil that we are facing today, one thing is certain. If each one of us contribute in any small way for preserving our planet earth, the glimmer of hope will not die.

We can create our future. Let us start by preserving Mother Earth.
