I'm glad to report that my de-stressing technique still works: mapping waterways on #OpenStreetMap , with headphones on, with Coldplay playing. 😅
30 bucks of happiness at "Starbucks" Painitan in #Dumaguete. Rice cake (the local "puto") and two servings of rich, hot chocolate. One of the few places with a real, native coffee culture left.
I think they extended pride month here. 😅

Earlier today, map-py volunteers spent most of their Sunday working with the Lupang Arenda community, to assist their #OpenStreeetMap editing initiatives related to land tenureship, and disaster preparedness. Soon, they'll have high resolution aerial imagery on #openaerialmap , supplemented with street-level imagery on #mapillary , and the technical support of the local map-py advocates. I'm very glad about how positive this turned out to be.
The Kontur Map is another visualization of #OpenStreetMap objects with the #HighResolutionSettlementLayer from #Facebook . It can show areas where mapping work may be prioritized during an emergency mapping response, versus OSM objects and population data. It should be helpful for regular, non-emergency mapping initiatives, too.
Tomorrow, BPI will start charging for EFTs made to unenrolled accounts. Tho I'm keeping my BPI accounts, I recommend ING's mobile bank app to other people, where transfer to ANY bank account is FREE, and wallet balance actually earns interest. https://ing.com.ph/
Fund transfers from ING to ING are instantaneous. Check deposits can take up to two days, but could be quick as a few hours - all transactions via the app, so no need to go to the bank. And now they're on InstaPay, too
Drivers follow Google Maps - ends up getting stuck in mud.

The local ride-sharing market is ripe for a decent competition. If #owto truly wants to go against #grab , they really need to level up their game. The app's user interface is not convenient nor cohesive. If you're trying to find inspiration , try #Uber's. Heck! Even India's #Ola app for tuktuks didn't suck as much as this.

This unusual bearded pixie king (?) sitting atop an elephant is an unusual roadside ornament I found in #Mandaluyong, the city next to where I live. I always enjoy finding unusual sights, or gustatory delights when I #rompWithTanuki. The first person to guess its location by 2019-06-30 gets a gift from me. I'll try to get a close-up photo next time.
Sa ating pag-gunita ng Araw ng Kalayaan, ay muli kong naalala si Nathaniel Branden: "Freedom is still the most radical idea of all."
Kung kayo'y interesado rin sa libre at malayang datos, software, at pag-mamapa nais namin kayong imbitahan sa isang komperensya nitong Agosta, Pista ng Mapa, sa Dumaguete, na binuo ng mga lokal na tagataguyod ng #OpenStreetMap at #FOSS4G
