I had been planning to buy a digital watch for some time, something metal like the A158WA-1 or the A159WGEA-1EF. I really wanted to get an A159WGEA-4AEF but all I kept seeing in the stores were A159WGEA-9AEF.
But when I saw this Casio F-91W Gold, I bought it immediately. The black resin strap is quite thin, and with regular use, I expect it to last only a few years. From the back you can see that the body is made of metallic beige plastic and it seems that the front has a thin piece of gold-colored metal covering it. It seems that this model is also available with the metal colored silver.
Some time ago, Seiko had an advertising campaign that stated “You can tell more about a person by the watch they wear than anything else” and “It’s your watch that tells most about who you are.” This F-91W gold is simple and special, just like me.
This afternoon, I saw what seemed to be altocumulus clouds near my residence.
For some of the pictures, I intentionally included elements such as house roofs and street lights to provide some idea of scale and location.
All these pictures were taken from around the same location and at around the same time, but with the camera aimed at different regions of the sky.
Whenever I pass by Toy Kingdom Express at SM City Naga, I usually buy 0, 1, or 2 Hot Wheels because I seldom see something I like and don’t already have. When I passed by yesterday, I saw the same old models. But a salesperson saw me and said that he had a new box of Hot Wheels that he would like to show me. When he came back with it, I had to get a shopping basket to hold all the models that interested me. In the end, my wife and I ended up picking the models shown below. I’ll blog about some of them in the future.
When the Bicol Science, Technology & Engineering Conference 2017 was cancelled, one of the plenary speakers, Aurelio Asug De Los Reyes V, agreed to still give his talk but to a smaller audience: the faculty, staff, and students of Ateneo de Naga University. The talk on mathematical modeling of physiological processes is being organized by ADNU’s Department of Mathematics, Department of Natural Sciences, and Graduate School on January 25, 2017 from 2 pm to 4 pm at the CCMF Amphitheater. Admission is free.
I was able to get only 10 hats for Stack Exchange Winter Bash 2016. (The storm that hit Naga City last December 25, 2016 resulted in the city having no electric power for most of the holidays. My residence still does not have electric power as I write this post.)
I was looking for some Hot Wheels to buy as Christmas gifts for my nephews when I saw this ’70 Dodge Charger (not to be confused with the ’70 Dodge Charger R/T) from the movie Furious 7. It’s a good thing my nephews seem to prefer modern supercars; this one goes to the collection that I and my wife have.
This Hot Wheels Fangula looks really nice in matte black. I’m not really into pinstripes, but the design on the side (with the circle flame logo in red) looks nice.
