I have recently "re-discovered" the value of reading people's blogs.
They get to show you the wonders of them Internetz.
Take for example, this one. This basically covers a whole swath of topics needed for everyday Manila life. From insightful market reports to tips and tricks on how to survive the commute home, it's a refreshing take on things.
Another example, from the same author, is the Track Beauty of the Week posts.
Blogs like the examples above show how varied the interests of a person are, and how infinitely interesting people can get. So read up and meet up would be my take away for this one.
