Dont Use Globe Post Paid ! ! !

Around March 2013 I called the hotline of globe and requested to turn off my data service since even if I turn it off manually thru my phone Im getting data charges if Im connected with my WIFI, and before I end the call I ask the female agent if she already turn it off and she told me that “Yes Sir it was off so even if your using your wifi you will not be charge of data service”. I was confident that after that call my only charges will be my personal use of call and text.

Came June, I was shock to discover that my bill was 10K and when I saw my bill there were charges for data service. So I immediately report this to the customer service of globe. from June till August the problem was not solve and they offer 50% reversal of the said charges.

As a consumer this is not my negligence for them to offer me only 50% waiver and not only that how would you feel as a consumer that a company is charging you internet service when infact your using other companies internet service. Worst part of this is when I ask globe to trace the phone call last March they just promise to look into that and till now no feedback on it. So it only means to say that all phone calls of customers are not recorded?

Im totally disgusted with Globe service so if your planning to sign up for post paid plan with globe I will suggest not to continue and better switch to other companies.

Mga Nakakainis Na Moment sa PUJ

1. Mga taong walang galang. Ni hindi man lang marunong magsabi nang “Makisuyo” “Makikiabot” o “Mah bayad po, Mah bayad Ho” at wala man lang “Thank You o Salamat”. Sasabihin lang BAYAD OH… FYI wala kang utusan!

2. Yung ayaw mag abot ng bayad. Bingi bingihan. Busy busyhan. Tulog Tulugan..

3. Yung mga babaeng feel na feel ang pag hangin ng buhok nila papunta sa mukha ng mga katabi nila. Mga walang pakialam sa mundo feeling nasa commercial ng shampoo. Nako pag ako nakadala ng gunting gugupitin ko talaga yang buhok na tumatama sa akin!
4. Yung mga lalakeng kung maka bukaka habang nakaupo eh akala mo 4 ang betlog. Hindi naman dala ang binayad nya at kung makabukaka wagas.

5. Yung mga feeling nasa sala lang ng bahay nila at kung maka upo eh napa comportable at nakasideview pa… ate/kuya hindi po dalawa binayad nyo hiya naman tayo ng kunti ha!

6. Tulog moment! yung tipong maka sandal sayo close… ok lang sana kung type kita why not sandal ka lang eh pano pa kung chaka at tulo laway at mabigat?
7. Mga chismosang nakatingin sa cellphone mo at binabasa ang message mo or tinatype mo sa cellphone
8. yung mga kitikiti na katabi. Akala mo walang katabi kung makakilos daiig pa ang bulateng nilagyan ng asin. pakundangan naman sa katabi mo!

The 99 Club

This story reminds me of where true happiness comes from –

Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious lifestyle, was neither happy nor content. One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he, the Supreme Ruler of the Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy. The King asked the servant, “Why are you so happy?” The man replied, “Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my family and I don’t need too much – just a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies.”

The king was not satisfied with that reply. Later in the day, he sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the King’s woes and the servant’s story, the advisor said, “Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club.” “The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?” the King inquired. The advisor replied, “Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is, place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant’s doorstep.”
When the servant saw the bag, he took it into his house. When he opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy… So many gold coins!

He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, “What could’ve happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins!” He looked everywhere he could, but that final coin was elusive. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete his collection. From that day, the servant’s life was changed. He was overworked, horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for not helping him make that 100th gold coin. He stopped singing while he worked.

Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. When he sought his advisor’s help, the advisor said, “Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club.”
He continued, “The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never content, because they’re always yearning and striving for that extra 1 telling to themselves: “Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life.”

We can be happy, even with very little in our lives, but the minute we’re given something bigger and better, we want even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, we hurt the people around us; all these as a price for our growing needs and desires. That’s what joining The 99 Club is all about.

Story About Love by Swami Vivekananda

I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me.
Once when we were sitting at the edge of a swimming pool, she filled the palm of her hand with some water and held it before me, and said this: “You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes Love.”

This was how I saw it: As long as you keep your hand caringly open and allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you attempt to close your fingers round it and try to posses it, it will spill through the first cracks it finds.

This is the greatest mistake that people do when they meet love…they try to posses it, they demand, they expect… and just like the water spilling out of your hand, love will retrieve from you .

For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there are people you love, allow them to be free beings.

“Give and don’t expect.
Advise, but don’t order.
Ask, but never demand.”

It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly practice. It is the secret to true love. To truly practice it, you must sincerely feel no expectations from those who you love, and yet an unconditional caring.”

Passing thought… Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take; but by the moments that take our breath away…..

Life is beautiful!!! Live it !!!

If Love is Blind

Here is another touching story from my collection of old chain mail

The passengers on the bus watched sympathetically as the attractive
young woman with the white cane made her way carefully up the
steps. She paid the driver and, using her hands to feel the
location of the seats, walked down the aisle and found the seat
he’d told her was empty. Then she’s settled in, placed her
briefcase on her lap and rested her cane against her leg.

It had been a year since Susan became blind. Due to a medical
misdiagnosis she had been rendered sightless, and she was suddenly
thrown into a world of darkness, anger, frustration and self-pity.
‘How could this have happened to me?’ she would plead, her heart
knotted with anger. But no matter how much she cried or ranted or
prayed, she knew the painful truth, her sight was never going to
return. A cloud of depression hung over Susan’s once optimistic
spirit. All she had to cling to was her husband Mark.

Mark was an Air Force officer and he loved Susan with all his
heart. When she first lost her sight, he watched her sink into
despair and was determined to help his wife gain the strength she
needed to become independent again.

Finally, Susan felt ready to return to her job, but how would she
get there? She used to take the bus, but was now too frightened to
get around the city by herself. Mark volunteered to drive her to
work each day, even though they worked at opposite ends of the
city. At first, this comforted Susan and fulfilled Mark’s need to
protect his sightless wife who was so insecure about performing the
slightest task. Soon, however Mark realized that this arrangement
wasn’t working – it was hectic, and costly.

Susan is going to have to start taking the bus again, he admitted
to himself. But just the thought of mentioning it to her made him
cringe. She was still so fragile, so angry. How would she react?
Just as Mark predicted, Susan was horrified at the idea of taking
the bus again. “I’m blind!” she responded bitterly. “How am I
supposed to know where I’m going? I feel like you’re abandoning
me.”

Mark’s heart broke but he knew what had to be done. He promised
Susan that each day he would ride the bus with her until she got
the hang of it.

And that is exactly what happened. For two solid weeks, Mark,
military uniform and all, accompanied Susan to and from work each
day. He taught her how to rely on her other senses to determine
where she was and how to adapt to her new environment. He helped
her befriend the bus drivers who could watch out for her, and save
her a seat. Each morning they made the journey together, and Mark
would take a cab back to his office.

Although this routine was even more costly and exhausting than the
previous one, Mark knew it was only a matter of time before Susan
would be able to ride the bus on her own. Finally, Susan decided
that she was ready to try the trip on her own. Monday morning
arrived, and before she left, she threw her arms around Mark, her
temporary bus riding companion, her husband, and her best friend.
Her eyes filled with tears of gratitude for his loyalty, his
patience, his love. She said good-bye, and for the first time, they
went their separate ways. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday….
Each day on her own went perfectly, and Susan had never felt
better.

On Friday morning, Susan took the bus to work as usual. As she was
paying for her fare to exit the bus, the driver said, “Boy, I sure
envy you.” Susan wasn’t sure if the driver was speaking to her or
not. After all, who on earth would ever envy a blind woman who had
struggled just to find the courage to live for the past year? “Why
do you envy me?”

The driver responded, “It must feel so good to be taken care of and
protected like you are.” Susan had no idea what the driver was
talking about, “What do you mean?” The driver said, “You know,
every morning for the past week, a fine looking gentleman in a
military uniform has been standing across the corner watching you
when you get off the bus. He makes sure you cross the street safely
and he watches you until you enter your office building. Then he
blows you a kiss, gives you a little salute and walks away. You are
one lucky lady.”

Tears of happiness poured down Susan’s cheeks. For although she
couldn’t see him, she had always felt Mark’s presence. She was
blessed, so blessed, for he had given her a gift more powerful than
sight, a gift she didn’t need to see to believe – the gift of love
that can bring light where there had been darkness.So if you love someone be faithful to that person.

Touching Father and Son Story

SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?”
SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?”
SON: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “If you must know, I make $100 an hour.”
SON: “Oh! (With his head down).
SON: “Daddy, may I please borrow $50?”
The father was furious.
DAD: “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?
After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think:
Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $ 50 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

DAD: “Are you asleep, son?”

SON: “No daddy, I’m awake”.
DAD: “I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the $50 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.
SON: “Oh, thank you daddy!”
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

DAD: “Why do you want more money if you already have some?”

SON: “Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do.

“Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.”
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness. It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $100 worth of your time with someone you love? If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family and friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

Some things are more important.

Promise I will Try to Practice Kurot Principle

 

saving_money_by_naolito-d46ay6i.jpg

 

Sabi nila meron daw 3 prinsipyo ito ung Kurot, Dakot at Utang na principle.

Kurot Principle, Ito ung tipong gusto mo bumili ng bagong Sapatos na tag 5000 tapos meron kang saving na 500000 sa banko. pag bumili ka ng sapatos gamit ang iyong savings parang kurot lang ang mangyayari sa saving mo at meron ka pa matitira kung sakaling kinakailangan mo ulit.

Dukot Principle, ang pinag kaibahan naman nito sa Kurot eh tipong ubos ubos biyaya. gusto mo bumili ng sapatos na 5000 pero ang laman ng savings mo ay 5000 lang din at binili mo yung sapatos wala na matitira sayo. Masaya ka dahil my bago kang sapatos pero wala naman natira sayo 🙁

and the last principle is Utang Principle. ito ung tipong wala ka nang saving pero gustong gusto mo bilhin ung sapatos na 5000 so ang gagawin mo ay uutang ka sa friends mo para lang mabili ang luho mo.

Ikaw ano ba mas gusto mo? Me? Im planning this year to save money as much as I can kaya Kurot principle ang gagamitin ko ung tipong my gusto akong isang bagay at hindi ko kaya ng pero ko bumili ng sampung ganun hindi ko iyon bibilhin sa ganun mapipigilan ko sarili ko magover spend this year.

How Inconvenient Gcash is?

 

nbi.jpg

 

One of the main requirement in philippines is NBI clearance may it be for job, getting passport ETC. Knowing how tedious it is to get NBI Clearance, you need to line up for several hours fill up some forms and so on. NBI came up with NBI Online Clearance Application. Sounds convenient right? think again…. For online application you need to pay thru Gcash or Pinoy Pera Padala. Since I’m a globe user I used Gcash in paying, after a sec or two I received my reference no. then I log on to NBI to setup my account and schedule. but for some reason I received this error “Please make sure you have not mistyped your reference number and payment date/birthdate.” I did double check everything and everything is correct.

 

I called the Gcash hotline to report they even verify my reference number, and indeed it was correct so they promise to resolve the issue within 24hrs. Error happened last Sunday and reported after and now its Tuesday and still not yet resolve how inconvenient it is to transact with Gcash. I do made followup call thru gcash hotline several times but all they answer was no reply from concern department and I will just followup.

 

what pissed me off is the agent told me upfront that there was no reply from the concern department and she will just email and followup again! for crying out loud! 3 days was already passed by and no reply? if they are waiting for the email it will take years. They have the means to call since they have the information of the that department. I previously  worked in a call center and urgent matters that need to escalate we have direct no. to expedite the process. So I suggested to the girl to call the department ASAP and she reply that they don’t have means to call them! Inday call center ka nagtratrabaho madaming telephone dyan na pwede gamitin ung sa supervisor or managers phone actually have access to outside call.

 

So I decided to cancel the transaction and request for a refund since they cannot solve the problem and they just replied “ay sorry we cannot guarantee na ma refund?”  Honestley Gcash is not convenient at all. and even agents in gcash hotline was not helpful at all.
