and now on its 9th yr  of operation and of service to Bgy. 81 Caloocan Monumento Community.



ber months is the start of more christmas related events because christmas is just a few more sundays ahead
so get ready for more events.

its BER months which means Christmas is almost here! We celebrate the longest Christmas in the world starting form September to March of the following year. christmas commercialism.


 DEN-R internet will have its 9th christmas this yr.
and guess what, radio stations started playing Xmas tunes two or three weeks ago. well, Christmas carols could be heard airing on mainstream as early as September! I always look forward to the first Christmas song I will hear for each year.


If you are so rich ... with family and friends, be warned that a very long list can cause a serious holiday bankruptcy,  So you may want to limit your list to those whom you really care about.
every year. I spend around 30-35k in holiday gifts, in Brgy 81 alone, there would be around 19 pedicab friends, 32 families from all corners of my barangay, and around 300+ customers, kids, teens, and adults, come for their chistmas presents from December 2nd wk til the day itself] usually in the form of cash. not counting my 30 Godchildren "inaanaks "

Every Christmas for 30 yrs, I havent received any gifts from people I know, but what am I complaining about? Christmas is not for gift giving alone. 

hey why am I talking about Christmas now and its not yet even  haloween?

the future of INTERNET CAFE


In 2 wks time from now, Sept 5 will be DEN-R internet's 9th yr in the business of giving quality service to neighbors of Bgry 81 Caloocan City.

Much have chaged through the years, a Total of 7 shops has challenged DEN-R, namely LOOKUP, VIRTUAL EXCHANGE, FREEZING POINT, SEARCH AND FIND, SINGULARITY INTERNET, THENET.COM & CASALS.

competitor Virtual Exchange Closed down March 2012


DEN-R has acquired Look-up internet in Nov 2009 and Virtual Exchange Internet in Mar 2012, the only competition now is THENET.COM the rest has been closed down.


LOOKUP has been acquired for 120k and has been renamed RUDENDER INTERNET 1
then 3 yrs after I acquired Virtual Exchange March 2012 and renamed it to RUDENDER 2 internet
then profit has been pretty good with 3 shops in my control.





In 2013  the local cafeteria style restaurant, - BJ Hipolito Eatery has opened up and challenged DEN-R with a 14 seats pisonet internet cafe, and this has proved my theory that if I dont go with what IN, then my sales will decline, and it has! for the past 8 yrs, DENR has never shut down, and for the first time, it did shut down its doors for a month and I have no choice, but to convert and innovate.
DENR has been converted to DENR 1peso-internet cafe.

Its  been quite a while [cant believe its been 7 yrs] since I last posted something, life in the internet  cafe industry has changed a lot over the span of 2 decades since the counter strike boom. IN games like Ragnarok, MU, RAN has already come and go[ for PH servers], the trend now is Dota style MMORG games like [dota 2, Heroes of Newerth , Leaque of Legends, and heroes of the storm] gone are the days where levelup [now bought by Asiasoft] is King, now, AsiaSoft Rules.[they bought companies like e-games and level-up] and if GameClub doesnt watch their back, and take care of Crossfire Philippines, then they will be "merged" by the  bigger company.


To wrap up? the future of internet cafe here in the Philippines, is DIM. PLD{c} [DC for-disconected] has an aggresive marketing plan to put all houeholds with internet at an affordable price. Notebooks and desktopPC prices cost less than ur average android phone, and every corner has a pisonet.

What I'm trying to point out here is, if we don't go with the trend, and the Whats IN, then we will be swallowed and "merged" by a company much innovative than we are.

my second mid sized sedan- the galant 7G

The Mitsubishi Galant is an automobile manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors between 1969 and 2012. The name was derived from the French word galant, meaning "chivalrous".source -wikipedia.  There have been nine distinct generations, and cumulative sales now exceed five million.[excluding the second hand market]  It began as a  sedan, [in the 70s] but over the course of its life has evolved into a larger mid-sized car, as big as the nissan cefiro , the honda accord.
Seventh generation (E52, E53, E54, E57, E64, E72, E77, E84, E88)
A new Galant debuted in 1992 (model year 1994 in America), available as a four-door sedan and five-door liftback (sedan only in America). A Japan-only hardtop derivative called the Jdm name Emeraude , a french word for emerald was also launched in 1992.
This generation marked a substantial change in suspension design. The front switched from struts to a multi-link structure featuring two lower arms and one upper arm. The rear switched from a beam axle to a newly designed multi-link system. 
this 7th Gen galant is available here in the Philippines when I was studying in AMACC during my college days, the popular being the galant vr6 with 6a12 engine [v6 24v] manual tranny, and a much conservative 4g63A with automatic transmission.
other rare models are the viento, the original vr4 167 hp (125 kW) naturally aspirated 2.5 L 24-valve DOHC engine, which was mounted with four-wheel drive, 5-speed manual transmission and four-wheel-steering. Body styles were 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback. Rear differential was not available with limited-slip. In option were sunroof, A/C, cruise control, power windows, central locking, electrical heated seats and electrical side-mirrors. a much rarer version is the seventh generation VR-4 chaning the old four-cylinder engine [of the supersaloon and PHDM vr4 ] in favour of a smoother two litre V6 twin turbo. 2.0 L V6 twin turbo 6A12 177kw . The four wheel drive transmission was retained. 

rare models like the original vr4 (not sold here in PH) have 4wd sunroof, racing seats, 200hp stock for 7G body trims and almost 300hp stock for 8G body trims.

video of some nice JDM galant on the net


I got my Galant on August 15, 2014 from a friend I met on the internet. its an early model grey 1994 7G supersaloon with 132k on the odometer, and a 2.0 4g63a 'fuel efficient' sohc motor, its already road worthy, cold aircon runs fine,  I know there are some minor repairs to be made to make it stand out.
HERE ARE THE LIST OF MINOR REPAIRS THATS NEEDED TO BE ATTEND TO:
1. radiator cleaning
2. tune up change spark plugs and o-rings
3. power window and door locks, [rear pasenger] striker [driver side]
4. full window detailing
5. rain gutter
6. rear wiper
7. headlight tailight [Emeraude version]
8. interior makeovr[ leather uphostery, ceiling handles, dome lights, aircon vents]
9. tires
10. paintjob an estimate of 40k budget will be allotted for this make over.
I promise you, you wont recognize this again after a month
the paint is fresh on pic, but I know this unit needed a major make over to make it stand out.


engine bay is fairly clean, but needs a waterless detail I noticed that the right turn signal light is not properly alligned and no foglamps were present. I need to change the whole headlight assembly if I found one,

interior is fresh, needed to upgrade the seats to match the VIP setup
the interior is fine with me, just needs to get the old odor out, reuphoster the momo steering wheel and put a 2din headunit
 THE NEXT DAY, I went to my friend Architect David and Marlon of Trapik Audio for some help in the following first upgrades for the first week.
1. HID foglamps, and HID white headlights.
2.electrical, repair of modules, for power window, door locks
3. radiator cleaning and tune up. removed thermostat

We were there as early as 730am, then we went to Max  to meet some more friends, the tour started
a few minutes afterwards,

my friend Lawrence Chan,  [Renz] conducted the free tour. I call him the chinese walking encyclopedia, he  knows the different plant species including their scientific name better than my terror science professor  back in HS!. he explained to us the different types of orchid, and the properway to identify them. am a newbie at this but in time, I know I will learn.





I enjoyed the free guided tour, specially am new into this hobby. there were only a few attendees present during the guided tour and it has its advantages, ill let you know why. we were guided by rence inside the different gardens  and exhibit area, He know the plants better than most of the people in the garden to the amazement of senior hobbyist and a media personel.

as we walked, we met King John, soon to join the plant market business. hes very generous to us because there were just a few of us.  and we all get a little token , a remembrance from the owner.  Ill get to buy some of my favorites from him soon.
the generous farm manager  of KING LOUIS,     
 Mr. Efren  Gener





we all got a flowering plant  from King Louis

and then comes the best part, we were bought to the Quezon Heritage house, and experienced another personal guided tour from Lawrence, and a cute lil lady [didnt get to ask her name]
and after the tour, by afternoon, we were all smiles.








After the Quezon Heritage house tour, I attended a free orchid lecture by then Cory Aquino - Secretary attorney Nanni Perez . I learned a lot. and I also got a price from the raffle. thanks Attorney.
