our doll house

actually, it’s the house across ours. i’m not posting ours because it’s still quite a mess! i’m only going to post pictures of it when it looks like fit for some Lifestyle magazine which is like never going to happen! =) 


most of the houses in briza looks the same. so this’s exactly how our house looks like except that our gate is pink (don’t ask. it’s mark’s idea.) and imagine some boxes and stuffs on the mini front yard. i don’t think our neighbor would mind that i post their house pic because nobody actually lives there.

am i in hate?!?

i don’t know where to begin but, not really hate, i’m more of tired dealing with globe/globelines/innove (whatever you call them).

first, i requested for line transfer way back in august but i specifically put sept 3, 2007 in the date of transfer. but 3 days after, we no longer have internet/phone connection back at our old place. the internet is like our source of bread/butter/milk so it’s not really funny losing connection. so i called their helpline and was informed that our line was already transferred but it’s still august. so i had to go to their office personally to ask them to cancel the transfer. the csr explained to me that they process request within 48 hours! wow, quite efficient! so what’s the purpose of asking for date of transfer in their form, and nobody explained to me about their 48-hours thingy. and, they’re a communications company, can they at least give a call first for confirmation before cutting our lines. what’s the purpose of asking my phone number, my celphone number, and whatever number?!? duh duh duh!

thankness, i had my internet connection back. but i lost it again first day of september. remember, i already cancelled my request, and they told me to just submit another request when we would be transferring already. i did not submit any request again but still they transfer my connection again. they’re really are efficient!!! i no longer complain this time because i do not want to deal with them again because it’ll be frustrating so i just let it go.

second, fast forward, finally we moved and was glad to find our internet connection waiting. but the thing is we’re having a very slow upload speed – it’s like 128 kbps or worse lower than that. that speed cannot support my voip, and also the torrent! =) it’s like dial-up. we do not have this problem before. so i went to their business office to upgrade my account thinking that it might solve the problem. but still nothing happens to my upload speed. i called their helpdesk, and gi pasa2x jud ko from tech support to customer support. all i get is they have some system restoration here in cebu. according to mark, our problem has nothing to do with the restoration. in the end, i just accepted their reason. today, i went to their business office to report my problem, i’m thinking talking to a support staff face to face is much better. but then all she gave me was that they do not guarantee providing us the speed rate indicated in the packages they offer but they can guarantee for dsl packages that the upload speed will not be lower than 60kbps. whhaattt? so what’s the purpose of the different packages they offer when after all, you’d only be getting a guaranty of 60 kbps! so those globe ads you see, sos, burit ra na!

(anyway, from my own assumption, i think what really happen is that there are places that globe connection is good, and there are places that just have bad connection. so goodluck to to you if you landed in the bad area.)

hay, this is getting nowhere! talking to their support staff is useless, scripted kaayo! it hurts to see/hear them rephrasing and rephrasing their scripts. i should know, i’m a csr too! i really have not much choice. i don’t think pldt has something better to offer (which we also don’t have in the area). so my only hope now is our smart wifi/bro which, unfortunately, is left at our old place alone and lonely!

i’ll just wait for that system restoration they kept telling me to end, and if ever nothing happens to my upload speed. mao na’y giingon nga joey de venecia can i have your broadband deal!

and, our server is broken. i really do not know what the server is for but somehow it sounds important.

(last) friday night

last friday was fun… it was godo’s (now dr. gwendolyn donan) thanksgiving party, and margie just came from taiwan so i got to see my highschool friends. =) we had dinner at godo’s.

godo, the girl in brown tops.


then after that we went around cebu city to give margie a tour of what she might have miss for two years. then, we stayed at the new sykes buidling to see more friends. i saw nina — great to see her before she will fly to some paradise.

margie, the sexy girl beside me. kaon na sad bisan gikan pag party.


then, we went to paseo because we thought it’s the new thing that margie should see. it was also my first time to be there.

nisayaw jud ko sa paseo kay first and last na to nako. ug ako ra jud ang nisayaw nila while they were laughing at me! baylihan gud to so dapat lang mobayli ta!


then, we bumped to another highschool friend, junrey, who just got married. and, nakalibre jud sya namo while he ranted about his 80t+ wedding photo coverage! =)


went home around 430am which is saturday na… =) =) =)

55 boxes

from pep.ph:
‘Samantala, ibinalita ni KC na magkakaroon ulit siya ng Artists Garage Sale kapag dumating na ang 55 boxes ng gamit niya na ipina-ship niya sa Pilipinas from Paris. Iniuwi raw niya lahat ng mga gamit niya sa Paris sa loob ng apat na taong pamamalagi niya roon.’

wowwww, 55 boxes!!!! we only have like 10 or 12 boxes when we moved out, and to think it’s like from the whole family!

unsa may sulod sa iya 55 boxes??? if they’re all dresses, how did she get to wear all of them?

this is so unfair! i’m so gonna be gretchen barretto!

hayyy, and she has lino cayetano pa jud. =)
