PUMA SOCIAL puts the spotlight on After Hours Social Athletes

I wanted to thank my friends from Puma for introducing me to this event and introducing me to the new social concept of “Social Athletes” or “After-Hours Athletes”.” Curious as to what that is…. well read on…


‘PUMA® SOCIAL’ puts the spotlight on

‘After-Hours Athletes’

Boracay-Rum-Puma-PFA-Etc 062Boracay-Rum-Puma-PFA-Etc 063

Believing that life itself is a sport and that everyone should be its champions, PUMA unveiled its new campaign at Manila’s happening club Republiq recently. Dubbed PUMA Social, the event paid tribute to Manila’s ‘after-hours athletes’, personalities who are top scorers in table tennis, foosball, darts, asking for a girl’s number, or any other social challenge that can be played with a beer in one hand.

Made glittery by local celebrities who are after-hours athletes themselves, the event celebrated social sports that regale groups of friends who know how to have fun and be competitive in the arena of life. Prefer taking 5AM cab rides than 5AM runs? Going for marathons that end at 6AM? These after-hours athletes who represent PUMA Social do too, and the event brought them together for a legendary league.


Fueling the burning passion of after-hours athletes, PUMA Social inspires with its line of iconic styles that are functional and stylish such as the PUMA Suede, Dallas and the T7 Track Jacket. With such comfortable and stylish gear, social events become matches easily won.

“PUMA Social is a global campaign that celebrates the after-hours athlete – those unsung heroes of the night who, after work or any undertaking takes time to relax, grab a pingpong paddle, dart pin or bowling ball while a drink on the other; those who take life not too seriously,” said Teresa Liwanag, PUMA Philippines marketing head.


Puma Social continues until May with Social Games featuring pingpong and foosball matches at Encore Superclub at the Fort starting April 12 then off Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod and Davao.

For more information and updates on Puma Social in the Philippines and around the world, visit www.puma.com/social, www.facebook.com/Puma and follow us on Twitter @PUMA or www.twitter.com/PUMA.

PUMA is one of the world’s leading ‘sportlifestyle’ companies that design and develop footwear, apparel and accessories. PUMA starts in sports and ends in fashion. Its sport performance and lifestyle labels cover ‘sportlifestyle’ categories such as football, running, motorsports, golf, sailing—and social sports.

Breasts implants can also save you from death

Big breasts miraculously saved an Israeli woman from death at the hands of a Lebanese paramilitary organization. The incident occurred during a Hezbollah rocket attack. The victim got a boob job two years ago. During the war, she was wounded in the chest by shrapnel but survived because of her implants. While the patient is fine, the implant, unfortunately, did not survive.

Fact or Fiction

You cannot open the door of a sinking car.

FICTION…. sorta

When a sinking car isn’t yet completely flooded, the water pressure differential between the inside and outside of the cabin prevents the door from being opened. Only once the sinking sedan is filled to the brim — and the pressure difference stabilized — will the door latch release.

Reason to party today – coz it’s happy hour somewhere in the world.

Professional Speakers Day

Space Milestone: First Picture of Earth from Space / “Cam Whore Day”

PageRank Explained (What is PR?)


If you get caught between a geeked out crossfire of tech words, or a blogger gathering of epic proportions, then you may have heard the geekish holy grail known as a high “PageRank.” Being a new web citizen or new blogger, you’ve probably heard this term get thrown out by your internet consultant who continually brags about how his PageRank 5 (PR5) site had gotten a link from some other famous PR7 site… This of course, means as much to you as the meows your cat gives you as he stares at you from his little kitty corner known as your sink.

So to break down the importance and meaning of a “Google PageRank” let’s start off by imagining you have a website that sells cellphones. Now, as you may or may not know, there are a hundred thousand kazillion other sites that sells cellphones online. Which is where our problem arises. Either way, YOU set up an online cellphone store which we will now call “CellPhone Store X

Cell-Phone-CellPhone-PageRank-Page-Rank-Google-ExplainedNow imagine that I’m a consumer, willing and ready to buy a cellphone online. Problem is, I have no clue where to go online to buy a cellphone. So I do what any other average consumer does, I search for it, and as most people do, I would probably use Google as my search engine. Now I type in something like “buy cellphone online” and I will probably get millions (27,300,000 to be exact) of web pages back from good ol’ Google.

Question is, where does YOUR “CellPhone Store X” fall in with the other 27,300,000 sites? Well probably somewhere between 12,563,905 and who-gives-a- f$#%*.

Since you didn’t really do much Search Engine Optimization (SEO) then your webpage just comes out somewhere lost in the kazillions of other pages. On the other hand, those people who did optimize their websites most likely are on the top of this Google search query. Meaning they are the first sites listed after you search for the words “buycellphone online.”

Google-Page-Rank-Thermometer-RankingHow much more money do you think these people at the top of the search page is making than your site lost in the millions? Well, A LOT MORE.

Thus lies the importance of Google’s PageRank. It is a page ranking system that rates how important your page is. A web page can be ranked from 1 -10 with 10 being the highest. The higher your rank = a higher position when people search for terms related to your content.

CNN.com is an example of a very important site that Google ranked with a 1o. My sites, VinceGolangco.com and WhenInManila.com each have a PageRank of 3. Which is decently good.

To check your PageRank, you can check out this PageRank checker site.

Most people will never see a pagerank of 1. In fact, just getting to a PageRank of 1 is pretty impressive since it already entails lots of work and time invested.


How do you get your ranking higher include multiple facets but most importantly are LINKS and KEYWORDS.

Google ranks pages higher if lots of other pages LINK to it. Obviously, a site like CNN.com has countless other sites referencing and linking to it. While KEYWORDS are the number of times the searched terms are mentioned within your site. Be careful with this though as there is an overkill where using the words too much actually hurts your PageRank score.

Anyway, that’s pretty much the importance of PageRank in a nutshell. Will get more into details of how to raise your PageRank in future articles.

Top Filipino / Pinoy Twitters to Follow on Twitter

OK, so if you’re living in the Philippines and hanging out in the Twittersphere, then you know that Twitter was the number 11 overall site that Filipinos were hanging out at for 2009. Personally, I get so much news, cool links, funny videos and just plain awesome tweets from here, all condensed into 140 nifty characters.

Though, I must admit, it took a while for me to find out which Filipinos / Pinoys from the Philippines are cool or fun to follow. So here’s my favorite Filipino Tweeple that you definitely need to be following on Twitter!

funny-twitter-birds-philippines-top-tweets-people-follow@mistygirlph – I already talked about Misty on my previous post, but really quick, if you aren’t already one of the 18,000 people following her, then you need to start. She’s one of the co-founders of the “2009 Best New Blog” award recipient BitRebels.com that boasts viewers from 189 different countries and authors from all over the world as well. She’s a techie, a graphic artist, a “twitterholic” and just an overall nice person.  (Oh and you should follow @bitrebels too)

@ninaterol – Nina is the author of the blog ChangeMakersPhilippines.com. I know…!!! Don’t you hate people who want positive change and empowerment of the powerless through social entrepreneurship and affirmative action! So yeah…. anyway, when this change maker isn’t doing all that change making, she’s tweeting about advocating causes, evangelizing ideas, working with civic groups, or blogging and social networking.

@jimparedes – one of the members of the legendary Philippine music trio – “The Apo Hiking Society,” Jim is one of the most fun and creative Tweeple to follow on Twitter. He’s a singer, songwriter, author, photographer, teacher, writer and more. Best of all, you can sense all his creativity and talents within his 140 character Tweets. You need to follow this creative guru!

@jasonqua Jason is one of the founders of Fantastik!Manila, an integrated marketing communications agency. He’s a genius at helping clients properly communicate with their audiences to ensure a direct link between the brand and its consumers. His experience with events marketing and internet / social network marketing is highlighted in his tweets. He’s very selective with his Twitter links as well and only tweets the most informative, insightful and/or funniest links. He’s a future marketing and social network superstar. Start following him now.

@flaircandy – FlairCandy, or Hannah as some non-netizens may call her,  is one of the top bloggers in the Philippines and Asia with her blog FlairCandy.com. She’s got a good following from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and a lot of other countries other than the Philippines. Though a self proclaimed geek and Certified Public Accountant, she often manipulates time and space to fit in crazy escapades like surfing, skating, cheerleading, karting and eating cow testicles. With so many new experiences and discoveries, it’s no wonder people love following her candy sweet Tweets.

Twitter-Logo-top-people-to-follow-on-twitter-filipinos-pinoy-philippines@cocoy – not really sure where Cocoy is from or what exactly he does, but one thing I do know is that when he Tweets, he’s right on the money! He’ll usually tweet links to the best articles available for the top trending issue at hand in the Philippines or even around the world. Many times, the article will be one he wrote himself. Furthermore, these articles he writes always leave me impressed and wanting to read more. He contributes to filipinovoices.com, which is sorta like a justice league of Filipino writers, and blogwatch.ph which is comprised of the top Filipino bloggers banding together to blog and watch the 2010 Philippine elections in hopes of keeping it clean, fair and legal.

@momblogger – the editor-in-cheif for that said BlogWatch.ph site, momblogger is also one of the top bloggers in the Philippines who was dubbed a “Tribal Elder” because of her knowledge with social media and her undying support to the many beginners at blogging and online media. Momblogger, or Noemi, is often sought after for advice from the blogosphere all the way to top politicians.

There are many more AWESOME Tweeple out there in the Twittersphere, these are some of the top Tweeters and some of my personal favorites. I’m sure I missed out on many more but will definitely write more about that on part 2 of this list of Top Filipino / Pinoy Twitters you need to follow on Twitter!

Oh and if you want to follow me, I’m @VinceGolangco or I also manage the @WhenInManila Twitter account. I usually tweet about the funniest stuff I find online as well as useful links for social media, marketing, writing, trends and life-in-general. Happy Tweeting!
