Here's a video that I took while on the way out of Glorietta 4. Please be patient while it loads. There's not much to see, but hearing the screams still brings chills to my spine.
I was walking near Jollibee Glorietta 4 when it happened. My back was turned to Glorietta 2, when I saw the window glass of Jollibee ripple and felt a shockwave pass through my chest. I thought one of the streamers in the Activity Center fell down or something, so I turned around. It was so surreal. I surveyed the Activity Center and everything was okay. People were walking around as if nothing happened... and then panic ensued. It was like I was in a movie set and the director suddenly yelled 'Action!'. A cloud of smoke seeped from Glorietta 2. People running away from the scene. Screaming. I knew something bad happened but my survival instinct wouldn't kick in. I knew I had to go out of the mall, but curiosity got the better of me. I was even actually contemplating about moving towards Glorietta 2 for a closer look. Better judgement kicked in, so I walked back towards the Glorietta 4 exit.
I couldn't resist not knowing what happened, so I walked outside Glorietta 4 towards Glorietta 2. They already cordoned off the road between Glorietta and Landmark, and I saw that EMT guys were trying to revive a man in a tattered gray shirt. I had to go around Landmark to get to Glorietta 2, and when I got there I knew that a bomb exploded. They were saying it was an LPG explosion, but it was too strong. Plus, the blast happened in the lobby of Glorietta 2 and there were no restaurants nearby.
The scary part is that I was at the blast site 10 minutes before the explosion. I came from Netopia in Park Square 1 where I printed something from my email.

Check it out! It's the Nike Free 7.0 v2 MiRU Edition!
Exactly one year after the highly successful release of the first shoe, the Nike Free 5.0 MiRU Edition, comes this much anticipated release.
Decked in the traditional MiRU livery of University Blue and Safety Orange, the 7.0 is the evolution of the original 5.0.
Too bad I didn't have money when they had a moving out sale last year. They're currently located at Jupiter Ave. My sister knows someone from Team Manila and she was bugging me to go to their Ecoville Office 'coz the prices were so low it was almost like they were giving it away.
It's too bad that the shirts are so expensive... 500 bucks a pop. Happy Days shirts sell for half that!
Visit the Team Manila website, here are my favorites:
- Urban Rail System
- Manila Style
- Ate Ging Shirt
- Soul Manila
- Familia Numero Uno
- Pier Electronica
- Jack & Poy Olympics
- Turo Turo Araw Araw
- Rocking The Third World
- Tandang Sora
- Dirty Ice Cream

Me & Dags
Just trying out blogging with my mobile phone. It takes about 15 minutes or more for the blog to be posted. I'm sending this via MMS through Globe, and I'm using my trusty Nokia 6680, which I've had for over two years now. I was one of the first to get this phone, and there were more than a few snickers from the techie elite, because the primary feature of this phone was the dual cam for video calling. At the time I got the phone, 3G was just a distant dream in the mobile aficionados head. It seems like I had good foresight, because 3G became a reality a few months after I got this phone. I have no plans of replacing this phone. Despite the crappy camera, crappy loudspeakers, and slowness, I love this phone. I don't think I'll find another phone that I'm as comfortable with as my 6680.
Well, maybe an N70, which is basically an upgraded 6680. There's not much of an upgrade, except for the camera, which is upped from 1.3 megapixels to 2 MP. I'd really like to get a Sony Walkman or Cybershot phone, because they sound great and take great pics, but I'm afraid I might not enjoy the phone because of the interface. I had a bad experience with the T610.

I've started and abandoned more blogs than I care to count. Hopefully, I'll keep this one. Actually, scratch that. I'll make it my birthday resolution to keep this blog.
