An evening at Mugshotz Sports Bar Resto

We came here for a taping for a feature in an internet tv show. Our team told us about a new sports bar in town and we will try it tonight.

When we arrived, we were surprised to be met by amiable owners mom and daughters Rose, Ren and Rhia Ang. They were very accomodating.

Mugshotz’ concept is very unique. The interior theme is interestingly sporty and the corners all point to one sport or game.

We have witnessed how bargoers did the beerpong where a glass half filled with beer is lined up in a table. When a player shoots a pingpong ball inside the glass, his opponent will drink a glass of beer. The first to finish the beer loses and pays. Nice game.

And then there’s hockey, billiards and my favorite-dart.

They served us great food. I like their potato fries, and their boneless pork leg ham. Its tasty and its not the usual recipe.

Mugshotz offer big servings to their customers so those with big appetites are surely going to enjoy.

We had a great time listening to the band, too. It was a grea…

Wikimedia Open Web Day goes to Pangasinan

Wikimedia Philippines officers went out to Pangasinan for an outreach project dubbed as Open Web Day.

It is a partnership project between the Provincial Government led by Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. And Wikimedia Philippines (WMPH).

Meeting with Google’s Janet Yoon

We have been contemplating for quite sometime on how to introduce Google Apps for Edu for Pangasinan schools.

The Provincial Government thru Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. wanted to help in upgrading the quality of education in the province, helping students and educators learn and teach with technology and so an exploratory meeting is being set up with the Pangasinan Digital team and Google Inc.’s champion for Google Apps for Edu, Janet Yoon.

During the meeting we asked her how do we start with the project, what do we need to do, what are we going to prepare?

We also asked her if they could train our team to be able to effectively pitch it to our partners. And she affirmed that indeed, they could help us.

We are excited about this project and we hope to execute this soon for the benefit of our pupils, students and the academe.

Right now, we are mapping 47 towns/cities in the Province and we are using Google Mapmaker to edit places, points of interest, schools, barangay halls and other stru…

Dazzling Dasol

Dasol is a town in Western Pangasinan, just right after Mabini and Burgos. It boasts of beautiful and Boracay-like beaches, salt farms and marine bounties such as lobsters, squid, crabs and prawns.

Dasol is also known for its Duhat and Bignay wine.

They also have a new and elegant municipal building where government transactions and services are being rendered.
