Hi! My name is John Philip Habaradas, friends call me Jaypee or JP. I’m 100% Filipino and proud to be one. I’m in my early thirties, born and raised in the Philippines currently residing in Southern California with my wife and kid. I am the only child.
I am half Tagalog and half Ilonggo. I speak both Tagalog and Hiligaynon dialects fluently. I can understand and speak a little Cebuano and now, I’ve added Bahasa Indonesia to the list thanks to my wife who’s Indonesian.
I finished my bachelors degree from the University of St. La Salle, Bacolod with a degree in Management Information Systems. I was fortunate enough to be able to continue my studies and take my masters degree in Business Administration which I finished in 2006. My emphasis was also in Management Information Systems.
I love my family, blogging, basketball, chocolate, Mexican & Italian dishes, the color blue, ketchup and dogs.
My Visual DNA:
This is basically my personal blog where I talk about events and stuff about me. But I also get to talk about things that interest me like new gadgets, sports, WordPress, Firefox, tips and tricks, interesting stuff from the Internet, etc.
I’m shifting from a personal blog into a focused, niche specific blog. From now on, I’ll be posting mostly about blogging news, WordPress theme and plugin reviews, technology, gadgets and the internet. You’ll find my personal posts on my Sideblog located in the right sidebar of the home page and is fuled under the Asides Category.

I’ve been using the name JaypeeOnline for about 6 years now. I first learned about HTML while trying to customize my AsianAvenue page. Then I started out my first webpage with Geocities and then to other free webhosts. I officially started blogging on June 2002 when I created an account in Blogger.com. I created my own template using Macromedia Dreamweaver and Adobe Photoshop and embedded the blog into my personal webpage. I had it hosted with a free webhost and used the domain Jaypeeonline.tk. Then I discovered WordPress, got the best free webhost IGB.net and finally got my own domain, JaypeeOnline.net from GoDaddy last June of 2006. JaypeeOnline was previously hosted at DreamHost, then MediaTemple and now with TechHive.
Why the name? Yeah I know it’s so simple. I couldn’t think of anything back then. I was trying to think of something that would represent Jaypee on the world wide web. Jaypee on the Web was too long and what came to mind was JaypeeOnline. I’ve thought of changing it and coming up with a unique name but people already associate me and my blog with this name so I decided to keep it.
