Presidential Candidate invades… GOOGLE ADS!!

by on Jan.07, 2010, under Others

while composing an email from my gmail account i notice this rather out of place advertisement…

it says Get to Know… so I was curious as to who it is… It was… alam mo na!

I wouldn’t write his name here because it will generate him traffic hahah

Kung hindi ka ba naman nagsasawa sa TV advertisement nya na lumalabas sa every 10 minutes makikita mo pa rin siya sa GOOGLE ADS!!

Some advertisements are cool. Some propaganda are cool. But man when it is time for Philippine election my home country is the last place I wanna be at. O.o

It’s not that I don’t wanna do something about the country. It’s just that I don’t wanna see them do what they do to my country!!

I will be a Hero this 2010

by on Jan.05, 2010, under Others

2010 marks the beginning of a new decade.

Though every years is a start of something new, 2010 comes only once so we must make history.

This will be my post for Be a Hero in 2010 Contest. It’s my new year’s resolution for the country.

1. I will not depend my life on the government. I will cultivate the society on my own. Ako mismo ba.

2. I will be an advocate to people who helps other before themselves.

3. I will vote wisely.

—-

I’m tired of hearing those people who always blames the government for their mishaps. Please! Grow-up! Kung gusto nyong magkatrabaho magsikap kayong matanggap! Hindi na lang sinisisi ang gobyerno kung bakit wala silang trabaho. Try to be qualified for the work, for God’s sake! TESDA has been promoting their work for scholarship program! They also give livelihood trainings, for FREE! You won’t lose from gaining something.

Help other help others. Tulungan ang mga taong tumutulong.

Vote those candidates not for their cheesy TV ads but for their track records. Most of those candidates have had ample time to make their “visions” to reality while sitting at their positions, chairmans, senators, and all.

Sky Cable customer service LOL

by on Sep.22, 2009, under Others

Hahahaha eto na naman ako~ :-p

Kasi mistakenly napanggatong ng katulong namin yung statement of account ng sky cable namin…

So ok, it will be less convenient to pay kasi using that statement of account madali lang kasi mag bayad sa 7-11..

Anyway… i did what i like to do… call customer support.. nyahahaha

[DIAL]
(you know the drill)
And instead of pressing 3.. I pressed 1 for Postpaid subscriber…
Then sabi Press 1 for billing ek and other concerns.. So press 1 ako..
Rang 3 times..
Ayan na siya…
CA: Hello this is *****, how may I help you? (Di ko naintindihan name nya) [pasalamat siya hindi siya na special mention]
ME: Saan/pwede ko bang madownload yung billing statement ko kasi nawala yung nawala yung statement of account ko eh… (same things different names)
CA: Can I have the name and account number, po sir?
ME: (binigay ko yung name)… di ko memorize yung account number eh…
CA: Address na lang po..
ME: (bigay address)…
CA: Sir, ang outstanding balance nyo po ay P1,2**.71 (may butal LOL)
ME: Ah ok… So, saan pwede ma download yung billing statement?
CA: Kung nawawala po yung bill nyo pwede naman po kayong magbayad sa accredited banks…
ME: Ok sana kung madownload ko yung para sa i-clip out (yung statement) at magbayad sa 7-11. It’s inconvenient kasi for me to pay sa bank kung katabi ko lang naman yung 7-11 di ba? (kumuha na ng gunting at naggugupit na sa hangin…)
CA: Kung gusto nyo sir i-cross check ko po kayo para maibigay ko sa inyo yung account number nyo at makapag bayad kayo sa banks.
ME: So hindi ko nga madodownload yung billing statement ko?
CA: Hindi po.
ME: Sige salamat.. ba-bay… (sa salamat pa lang binababa ko na yung phone)

AMP naman hindi ba pwedeng isang tanong isang sagot na lang? Sayang sa oras eh… Makakarami pa siya ng calls… tataas pa ratings nya…. 8-}

Reasons to not want Sky Broadband

by on Sep.20, 2009, under Others

Coming from PLDT Business line for 4 years.. I got what we want from PLDT. Download anything and everything… Continuous connection.. etc.. but all that has its caveats… And I’ll just talk about it some other time.

This is about Sky Broadband service…

We were excited about the new ISP (Internet Service Provider) because it promises to be fast. And it is.. but it has its down falls.. and they are good reasons to not subscribe.

  1. Epic reason: You cannot download from Rapidshare, Mega upload, etc.. (those file sharing service that tracks your IP address) and other sites like 4chan. It will always tell you that you have exceeded their download limit.. please wait for # minutes to download again… etc.. even if it’s your first time visiting the site.
  2. Connection cuts off sporadically.. but not always… [bad if you’re downloading a big file without the use of download managers]
  3. If the connection is slow.. its REALLY slow…
  4. It’s not “user friendly” to share [you have to be technically inclined to tweak advanced settings]
  5. Customer service.

I think you’ve read about me blabbing about concerns 1 – 4 on my comments on my brother’s multiply. But now I’m really pissed at that customer rep that I just talked a while ago.

I usually get what I want when talking to a call center agent. Like the first time I inquired as to why I cannot download from Rapid Share. The agent told me what to do, what needs to be done. And it worked..

ME: di ako makagamit ng rapidshare. [simpleng impormasyon di ba?]
CA: sir regarding sa rapidshare kailangan nyo pong gumamit ng proxy dyan. bigay ko po sa inyo yung IP… [edi binigay nya]
ME: ok sige thanks.

So I did what he told me and boom.. It worked.. So I’m happy.

And now… Di na gumagana yung sinabi nung CA na iyon kasi matagal na yun at nag “upgrade” na ng system yung Sky…

So I had to ask for another proxy setting. Kasi mag dodownload kami ng bagong map ng DoTA.

[in fairness mabilis silang sumagot ngayon ah.. 4 na ring lang]

(DIAL sky cs number)
AM: (answering machine) if you’re a postpaid cable subscriber press one…
ME: (antay)
AM: if you’re a prepaid cable subscriber press two..
ME: …
AM: if you’re a sky broadband subscriber press three…
ME: (pindot three)
AM: (ring… ring… ring… ring…)
CA: Thank you for calling Sky Broadband this is Jon-jon speaking how may I help you? (Oo, maliwanag ang pagkakasabi nya ng intro nya to the point na naaalala ko pa ito.. [Hindi ko kasi inaalala pangalan nila eh])
ME: May bago ba kayong proxy? Kasi hindi ako makapag download sa rapidshare.. (straight to the point di ba)
CA: Sir, hindi po kami gumagamit ng proxy eh… Wala pong available na proxy… [ano daw? hindi gumagamit pero walang available/ O.o]
ME: So, hindi ako makakapag download sa rapidshare ngayon? [mainit na ulo ko]
CA: Opo.
ME: (baba agad ng telepono) [hindi ko na pinakinggan iba pa nyang sasabihin kasi straight na naman sagot nya eh]

Ay oo nga… wala ngang proxy.. kaya pala may proxy06.skybroadband.com.ph

Oo, wala talaga akong patawad sa mga call center agent.. sila na nga lang mahihingan mo ng tulong sila pa yung kung anu-ano sinasabi…

Talagang pagkatapos nitong lock-down period babalik PLDT DSL na ako.. or maybe bayan dsl..
