After 14 Years, Ragnarok Online Still Has a Lot to Offer

When pRO closed in March 2015, Ragnarok Online was at Episode 14 El Dicastes. I was able to migrate my characters in the International Ragnarok Online (iRO) server but I only started playing there in November 2016. I was on hiatus for almost 2 years.

iRO Doram

I was updated with RO contents while playing at pRO. My AB was at max level at that time (150) and was able to finished the required quests to obtain the accessory to instantly teleport to El Dicastes.

When I started playing at iRO, I was a bit shocked at how the game progress in 2 years. The major one being the level cap -- it increased from 150 ato 175. That's a lot of grinding.

Episode 15 Phantasmagorica was also launched along with the Crimson Items. These items are for level 70 and up, so it's for my low level characters. Crimson Items is similar to elemental weapons but it has slots for cards i.e. Crimson Mace, which could either be Neutral, Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, Holy or Dark.

Some of the other things that I need to learn right now are the following (which proves that there are still a lot to learn/experience in RO):

1. Enchanting weapons
2. Desocketing and Slotting gears and weapons
3. New Maps -- Verus City, Mora Town
4. Instances -- Nightmare Toy Factory, Old Glast Heim, Jitterbug
5. Biolabs 4 Entrance Quest
6. Overseas Care Package (OCP) Items
7. Vicious Items
8. Episode 16 Banquet for Heroes
9. New Map: Rock Ridge (coming this June 2017)
10. New Cards

“Make brushing more fun with Minions!”

I’m actually single and I can’t imagine how difficult probably it is for dads to have their kids brush their teeth. I believe it’s not something that a kid looks forward to (like going to the dentist).

But if ever I have the task of teaching my inaanak (godchild) the habit of regularly brushing his teeth, I have to make sure that I brush my own teeth with zest, gusto, and happiness. I have to make it appear that brushing my teeth is one of the best activities that we can have.


Here are the things I can do to make brushing more fun for the family.

  1. I’ll let him watch a cartoon show about brushing his teeth on his tablet. A good story about fighting cavities seems like a good idea.
  2. We’ll brush together – with a catchy nursery rhyme or something playing in the smartphone, about brushing our teeth. I will teach him the basics of squeeze, brush, rinse!
  3. I will complement my inaanak on how beautiful his teeth are after brushing. I will also have a calendar wherein he can encircle the date 3 times in a day corresponding on how often he brush his teeth. Then I’ll reward him at the end of the month for not skipping a day without brushing.
  4. Lastly, I’ll give him a smaller version of my toothbrush – with same color and design! Since Minions are very popular these days, I will definitely give him the Colgate Minions Oral Care Pack – complete with the Colgate Minions toothbrush and Minions toothpaste!

My inaanak Yuri and my kumare. He just celebrated his 9th birthday recently.

Domino’s Pizza Opening Soon in Kapasigan, Pasig

Domino's Pizza logo

The area besides the Lumang Palengke in Kapasigan, Pasig City is now being developed. There’s a new commercial center being built there now and Domino’s Pizza is one of the future occupants.

With McDonald’s transferring to Caruncho Avenue in Pasig-Palengke, only KFC will remain the competitor of Domino’s Pizza in this part of Downtown Pasig. I’m looking forward to try their pizza and hopefully they’ll open before the year ends.

It’s nice to see that a lot of well-known fast food chains are opening up in Pasig City lately, particularly in A. Mabini Avenue in Kapasigan and Caruncho Avenue in the Palengke area.
