I did another game jam this past weekend and made a (very short) game featuring a manananggal. You can try it if you like: https://hungryroy.itch.io/manananggal (if you have an https://itch.io/ account you can also give it a rating for the game jam!)

@Westraid what is that triangle thing in front of the couch? You can put your legs up on it?

Ah, excellent. Kahit yung 1 and 3 lang siguro. I’ll DM you my email address. Thanks!

Posted on r/Philippines: I’m looking for an old Pugad Baboy strip

Baka merong may copy. In the strip, Patrolman Durugas has stopped Mang Dagul for a traffic violation, tapos pinilisopo sya ni Dagul, so binigyan sya ng ticket, nakasulat “violation: pilosopo”

I would guess it’s from the early books, kasi I remember medyo raw pa yung art style. Probably somewhere in books 1-3, kasi I have book 4 here, parang mas polished na yung art.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

(Bakit walang flair na “Question”? Sige na nga, “Culture” na lang)

Wait, what? Including the Philippines? What are our regulations here that would prevent this privacy-protecting feature?

Quoted peard33's tweet:
Apple said a new “private relay” feature designed to obscure users’ web browsing behavior from internet service providers and advertisers will not be available in China for regulatory reasons. Same in Belarus, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the Philippines & more. via @StephenNellis

For Your Eyes Only (1981): Bond film no. 12. After the sci-fi fantasy of Moonraker, this one is more grounded and down-to-Earth, a callback to early Connery adventures. No megamalomaniacs to defeat, just foreign agents and mercs. The opening sequence pays homage to the earlier pre-Moore films, acknowledging the death of Tracy Bond and killing off a villain that looks suspiciously like arch-nemesis Blofeld. The opening song is pretty good. The rest of the film was ok, if a bit forgettable. I liked the rock climbing scene, but the ski chase and car chases felt like things we’ve seen before. Also, Moore is starting to show his age.

Melina Havelock (portrayed by Carole Bouquet) reminded me a lot of DC’s Huntress - a crossbow-wielding woman out for revenge

Putting these nine photographs together illustrates the impact of the new security law enacted last June on Hong Kong’s former freedoms. https://twitter.com/jerometaylor/status/1400791730685845511

Binged thru S5 of Kim’s Convenience yesterday. Still so easy to background-watch. Too bad it’s the final season, they still had a few open threads to resolve.
