Free WoW Cheats: Cataclysm and the Rise of the Zandalari

Blizzard released the first major patch for the World of Warcraft Cataclysm expansion early this month. Dubbed as the Rise of the Zandalari the patch version is 4.1 and the main story is that Zandalari tribe have risen to the ranks and the Amani trolls and the Gurubashi trolls have allied themselves with the Zandalari. The Darkspear tribe (a playable race in WoW) led by Voljin remains loyal to the Horde.

The patch features a lot of new features including reiterations of familiar dungeons (Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman) to be level-85 5-player heroic versions, new Guild Finder, new Dungeon Finder (Call to Arms), new WoW mounts and pets, new powerful gems and a lot more.

Quoting Blizzard official site:

In years past, the Zandalar tribe, encompassing the wise and scholarly progenitors of the trolls, heroically assisted the Horde and the Alliance with thwarting the nefarious activities of their brethren in Zul’Gurub and Zul’Drak. Yet the chaos unleashed by the recent Cataclysm has reshaped the Zandalari’s philosophy about the world and the dwindling remnants of their race. Led by a mysterious prophet known only as Zul, the Zandalari have issued a call to Azeroth’s embattled troll populations: unite into a single mighty empire and save their race from extinction.

Below is the official Rise of the Zandalari video

Its cool to see Trolls cheering wildly during the celebrations 🙂

My favorite Rise of the Zandalari dialog will be the exchange of Voljin and Zul:

Zul: “Vol’jin of the Darkspear, you would turn your back on your own people?”
Vol’jin: “Da Horde is my people. If it be war you bring den I stand against you!”
Zul: “So be it Darkspear… but against the powers we shall soon unleash, none shall stand… for long!!!”

Voljin‘s loyalty to the Horde (and I guess to Thrall) is really admirable. For the Horde!!!

I don’t know if I will be joining the fracas in the Stranglethorn Vale soon. I am too busy with a lot of official stuff lately (and honestly its a challenge to update this blog often) but I’m hoping for the best.

Hope you like my WoW Cataclysm: Rise of Zandalari update.

Happy Mother’s Day 2011

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mama in Quezon and to my Nanay in Laguna. Special Mother’s Day greets also goes to my Ates in Quezon, Manila, Glasgow and Toronto.

As I mentioned in my 2010 and 2009 Mother’s day posts, I’m not a poetic but I am good in googling the net (so that I can be poetic sometimes 😀 ) so here is my mothers day quotes for 2011

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts

-Washington Irving
(American Writer. Best known for the short stories The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle)

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, mommies, mummies, nanays, and inays out there! Special Mommy Day greetings also to my godmothers, my aunties, my cousin-moms, my barkada-moms, and all the moms-friends I know online and IRL.

Pacquiao vs. Mosley via Ilemi TV, Sopcast, and Justin TV

Update: Pacquiao won by on a unanimous decision.

This is my good luck and best wishes shout out post to Pacman and Team Pacquiao!

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will be battling “Sugar” Shane Mosley on on May 7, 2011 (May 8, 2011 in Manila).

They will fight for the WBO Welterweight Championship at MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Reports say that it will be broadcast via CBS-Showtime instead of the usual HBO PPV. I have read that in the weigh-in Pacquiao came in at 145 lbs while Mosley at 147 lbs.

But just like the Pacquiao-Cotto and Pacquiao Margarito bouts, I will be in the Manila. I don’t want to go to restaurants or malls just to watch the fight, so its Internet boxing time for us again for Pacquiao Mosley via PLDT watchpad, Sopcast, Ilemi TV or Justin.tv.

Pacquiao Mosley via PLDT watchpad
I heard Nuffnang have some contest for pldt watchpad and Pacquiao vs. Mosley fight. I will check it later and post it here.

Disclaimer: I do not guarantee if the channels below will work. Some of them worked in the Pacquiao Margarito, Pacquiao-Cotto and Pacquiao-Clottey bouts.

Pacquiao Mosley Sopcast
The issue we got last time is that Sopcast seems to be heavily policed, my known channels returns cannot access error when I tried it now so I will check other sources soon.

Pacquiao Mosley Ilemi TV (Ilemi.com)
Ilemi TV is a live streaming site. This is another option for Pacquiao vs. Mosley live stream seekers out there. Just go to ilemi.com and ilemi.me and look for Pacquiao Mosley related channels.

Pacquiao vs. Mosley via Justin.TV
Justin.TV is another live streaming site. But it is heavily monitored and policed for the last four fights of Pacman so I will rule this out but you can try it also in case you have no luck with ilemi and sopcast.

Or if you live near Camp Crame, go there because there will be free viewing for Pacquiao vs. Mosley in Camp Crame sponsored by PNP.

Good luck to all of us 🙂

On TrendLabs, Security and Social Media


I did some internal presentation for TrendLabs folks this afternoon on security and social media stuff. I cannot share details yet as not all sessions are done (still got 3 2 to go), but to give you a hint it’s related to my previous post here and in Malware Blog.

At the end of the presentation I mentioned that I also blog here at Menardconnect.com and since some of them might check the internet for this site, hence this post.

Yup TrendLabs dudes and dudettes, welcome to my blog. It’s not ALL tech, antivirus and security blog posts here, as I also blog about games, food and other random *woot* things. Kindly read my about page if you are still in doubt (if this is my blog) 🙂

Thank you to those who attended the first session and second sessions. I have to admit I still got some preso jitters (for the first session). Not sure if I’m just nervous or excited or maybe both 🙂

I plan update this post after each session, and will do another follow up post after all the sessions are done.

To my other readers (especially non-Trenders) sorry but the presentation is for internal TrendLabs folks for now.

Presentation for external? I’m not making any promises (my idea here is like the song lyrics “…I’m not making plans for tomorrow, For tomorrow never comes“).

But who knows?

Update 2011.05.04
2nd session done. This session was more relaxed 🙂 maybe there is no additional “external” pressure 🙂 Thanks guys n gals for attending.

Poreotics in Manila Part 2

America’s Best Dance Crew Season 5 Winners Poreotics will be in Manila this month.

Three of the members of this amazing dance crew are Filipinos (Lawrence Devera, Justin Valles and Chad Mayate) while the other three (Matt Nguyen, Can Nguyen and Charles Nguyen) are Vietnamese.

According to some reliable sources, a member (Chad) is already in the Philippines (Bicol(?)) while the rest are now stranded in Honolulu, Hawaii because of some airline delays (haha I’m only guessing what airline that might be 🙂 ) and they will go to Boracay afterwards.

They will have the Poreotics Mall Hop Tour on the following dates and locations:

  • May 6, 2011 – SM Megamall
  • May 7, 2011 – SM North Edsa
  • May 8, 2011 – SM Mall of Asia

And of course on May 10, 2011 they will be the front act for Justin Bieber.
