Before anything else, I’d like to say special thanks to Sir Karlo for giving us this opportunity to travel to Virac which is his hometown.
At first I teasingly suggested a trip to Virac last year and I was excited when Sir Karl accepted my proposal and began planning. Honestly, we were hoping for a summer trip to a different place away from town and there were a lot of suggestions just going to the low-lands and visit nearby provinces. Nearby provinces although cheaper were a bit overrated and easier to reach due to the distance needed to travel there so we all decided that we should go somewhere different and someplace with a different view. And then finally, Virac it is!
The time has finally arrived when we must go to Virac!
All I could say was WOW, the place was great and will leave you in awe! There are certainly other places domestic like Boracay or Palawan but you are sure to find yourself in a place crowded with people. Virac however wasn’t crowded and it had so much room for exploration. We went island hopping and trekking, we even hired a van to aide us in our travels.
Sir Karl, who was kind enough to lend us his loft in Virac, Monte Karlo. We stayed here for a few days before we departed for Legazpi, a neighboring city which can be visited by traversing the sea from Virac.
If you’ve seen the gallery then I hope you were able to have a sneak peak of all the places we have visited. If you’re asking for advise, all I could say is, make sure you book one for you and for your friends to Virac!
There are times when CRON doesn’t simply fill in the necessary requirements needed for a recurring task. Here’s the problem, let’s say I have a script that should run immediately after it has completed. In other words, a routine. For instance, I’d like to keep the script running without it overlapping with itself. My issue with CRON is that it runs the script again even if the previous execution is still in progress and this is not a good thing as there may be implications to the data due to integrity failure.
I decided to use a bash script to instead run the script. Here’s how I did it:
Though this approach works, I am still unaware of the implications that may occur. As of now, this solves my problem.

We’re all into music and there’s no denying it. Most of the time we get bored and look for ways to be entertained and eject ourselves from boredom. The closest one we could think about is Music. Music has been there even before we were born and it still is trending up til now.
Anyways, what I want to talk about right now is the meaning of music. As far as I remember, I really enjoy music. But for the sake of recall, I could re-visit myself sitting down on a couch or the sofa listening to good music. That was way back a decade ago. I’ve been fond of music since as there have been some bands and some artists that titillate the follicles in my ear. However, the only thing I’ve been attracted to was the sound and the melody. It didn’t matter what lyrics it contained as long as it could give me a good reason to sit back and relax, feeling serene.
A few months ago, close to a year, somehow, things changed. I kinda spent more time analyzing lyrics instead of the notes used to produce the vibrant sound. Come to think of it, touche. That was the same time I began feeling melancholic. I never appreciated rap music, if it wasn’t Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park until now. I could say to myself, some rap music have really deep meaning. Take Eminem’s pieces for example, they all make sense and they all talk about life.
I could now classify myself more than an audiophile now. Its no longer the sound that counts, it needs meaning for it to reach your soul. Or, maybe perhaps, I’m just getting old. /sigh
