Going back to history, Pac-man is an arcade game developed by Namco. It was released in Japan on May 22, 1980. It has been universally considered as one of the classic and the most famous game of all time.
Going back to basics, the player controls Pac-man, that yellow smiley like thing through the maze while eating pac-dots, after eating all of them, Pac-man will be taken to the next stage. There are four monsters in the maze, Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde. Follow through the picture below:
They would roam to catch Pac-man and if a monster touches pac-man, a life is lost. However, those monsters also has weakness, they turn blue when Pac-man eats power pellets and during this time, Pac-man has the ability to eat those monsters. They turn white first before going back to their normal states. The game is pretty simple it is just a matter of controlling the cursor or the joysticks. This is a simple game yet an exciting one. As for me, I would always scream when those monsters are already running after Pac-man when I play. This is the most enjoyable part because it has thrills on it.
Happy 30th Anniversary Pac-man!
Just to mention, if I could still remember, my wave mates were Kevin Pulvera, the first one to resign the very first night we took calls for the main reason that his customers were much more knowledgeable than him. I could not remember who were the next to resign or to go on AWOL but we had Nikolai, forgot his last name, I believe he is still studying today, we had EJ, Houer Baduel, this guy is really unique, I could not forget his line when he asked the customer "Sir, can I hold you?" instead of "Can I place you on hold, Sir?", good thing that was just when we were doing our rehearsal with a teammate and not with an actual customer. Next was Voj De Guzman, this was the sleepy head of the group, this is primarily because he was still going to school at STI in the morning and works at night, one instant where in I could not forget him was when he was documenting his call and suddenly, I just noticed there was a continuous beep by a keyboard, looking back since I was just seating beside his station, I found out he was actually sleeping. His document page was already full o letter 'A'. We also had the fashionista gal, Tina. I could not forget her star tattoos around her waist. She is sexy and the reason she resigned was because of family problems. Next was Jeansen Dianne Torre, a Boholana like me, she went on absent without leave, she was sick that time and was not able to call in for two days, she was then shy to go back to work and just let it be that way. We had Louella Jane as well, we call her Lae. She was so fond of this Korean guy named Heartbreaker, I am not sure but it sounded like that. I just love his shoes anyway, hehe. She was the one who gives us updates about the group of Sandara, the 21 girls. Next was Aya, a very outrageous lad, I believe she was the most experienced wave mate I knew. She had worked in Convergys, in a callcenter in manila and one in IT Park as well. She was also a Prodigal daughter and just like me, she was a daddy's girl. I believe she is now in Manila working as a callcenter agent still. We also had Mark from Tellecare, he was a bisexual and was a kind of a "mahangin". Well, I just let him be like that when we were seatmates and I thank him, I really learned many things about the job. We had John as well, a registered nurse from Cebu Doctors' University. He also had worked in Convergys before and he need to resign because his granny was ill and he needed to attend her. On facebook, I had found out that he was a music lover, cool side of him. We had Dyreen, Ilongga, she was so cute that you will be surprised when you ask her her age. The first time we met, I thought she was 17 or 18 but found out she was already 26 and is married. Shocking really, it looked like I am older than her. The special thing about her was that she has been into a relationship for five or seven years, I guess but ended up breaking with that guy and then got married with another guy whom she has been for seven months only. Super!! I would not forget Mercy as well, also a Boholana. She was the Miss Friendship of the group because she had earned a lot of friends on the floor. She had a great crush on this guy named Alberto and we would always tease her about him. Well, she had a bad experience though and was the reason why she had to leave the account. But, as I can see, she is happy and contented with her work today. We had Bern Angulo as well, the small but terrible licensed engineer of the team. We get along so well with this man, he has a girlfriend who is also a Boholana so we talk much about her and Bohol. He was a cool guy, he had been a top agent and was good in taking calls for me. The reason why he resigned was because of the financial side. Well, as of now, he is with Convergys already and supporting Windows 7 account.
So those were the teammates who went on their ways, so the persons left are, yours truly, Tanya Mae Pinili, Daryl Gapor, Reggy Sultan, Kyle Magallano, Malvin Kim Diaz, Evan Marie Penzon and Loreto Gaerlan. Happy Anniversary guys! Way to go... Looking forward to more years together!!!
As promised, I will be updating you with the things that we have done during the second day of our team building at El Paradiso Resort Alcoy, Cebu.
As for the second day, we started it with a good breakfast and we had fun with our games. We played "Pinoy Henyo" which was taken from the noontime show of GMA 7, Eat Bulaga. It was a funny game actually and we also played Charades which is really common to outings like this. Team Michelle won the two games, supposedly, there were prizes given but we already ate them before arriving at the resort, so we ended up swimming though. The sea was alluring but the itchy thing is still there. We went to a deeper part where the ramp was located, the boys had fun jumping over and diving to the sea. I was able to get there by swimming but most of the girls were not, as a solution, they rented the paddle boat which cost them Php 100 an hour. They were able to reached the ramp part but they did not get out of the paddle boat, instead they returned to the shallow portion. I also rode on the boat, in fact, we tried going to the much deeper part but the boat was so slow that in which I had thought it was better to swim by yourself, haha.
After the sea adventure, we also went to the pool, this time, we opted to just stay in the kiddie pool since the bigger one was like sort of dirty. Good thing though was the gentleman who maintains the pool cleaned it and also increased the water in the kiddie pool, it was like jacuzzi that time. Daryl also massaged some of us, he was good with that actually, we also exchanged conversations until it reached the topic of "waxing the private parts." Funny it seems but there are really people out there who do that. Well, going back we got out of the pool when the time was already one in the afternoon and we need to eat our lunch. As usual, our food was really good. There were fried fish, grilled beef and fish, there was calamaris, my all time favorite and also chicken curie.
Unfortunately, we were only allowed to stay up to 2:00 in the afternoon. So after lunch, we packed our things and bid goodbye. We had picture taking of course before we left. There was a funny stuff when we went out, there was a lettering at the wall of the resort, here it is:
So much about that... Well, if you want to view our team building pictures, just visit my windowslive skydrive here: http://cid-1a84b61dc951543c.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/El%20Paradiso
If you want to visit the place, here are some of their information:
May 8, 2010 - Team Building day, each of us was really excited for the beach. I already told you that instead of going to Bantayan, we changed it to Alcoy, Cebu.
At exactly six in the morning, everyone was already out of the office, there were assigned committees and each had corresponding responsibilities with the said event. We were 14 as a team but there were outsiders who came, so we were all in all 23. We had agreed to meet at the South Bus Terminal at 9:30 in the morning. James and I were the first to come at the terminal, followed by Loreto and Reggy who brought the big box which contained our drinks. And the others also arrived a couple of minutes then. Unfortunately, we were not able to percieve the weight of the people who were also going home in the province, knowing Election day is on monday. Well, anyway, we were able to ride on the Ceres Bus at 11:00 in the morning, imagine that? We were at the bus terminal for three hours waiting for an available bus. It was not the only frustrating thing that happened, when we went out of the terminal, the bus routed to their garage to get more fuel and it took almost 30 minutes for us to get out of the place.
We were able to arrive first at the Tingko Resort at 2:00 in the afternoon. The resort was kinda not that beautiful and the facilities were not so appealing. The beach had a lot of dead seaweeds in the shore, I don't know why they didn't clean that out. Well, in fairness, there were a couple of people there ahead of us. We looked for some other resorts in the neighborhood since all of us did not like that resort. So we moved to El Paradiso, a walking distance from the Tinko resort and we ate our lunch there.
We had a very yummy dinner, we had shrimps, squid, lechon kawali and grilled fish. That was a tasty dinner really. Thanks to the cook committee. Then most of us went to sleep then, including me. As you can see, I wrote this in the morning of May 9. I will be updating you tomorrow then for the other activities and other more photos.
Three days before the team building, the location was changed due to some safety problems. Instead of spending it in Bantayan Island, ( :'-( huhu Bantayan ohh bantayan!) we decided to spend it in Alcoy, Cebu. The problem with Bantayan is there are rumors that the place is not safe since election is coming up and the NPAs are active right now, they said the place has been listed as a danger zone in times of election. Well, we will not be risking ourselves of course just because the place is nice.
I am recently having problems with paypal. I could not withdraw money from it and it is because Paypal says my account is limited. They need me to send out billing statements which I am afraid I can't give because I am only renting here and my billing address for Smartbro has not yet been changed. Now, I am searching for other people's experiences, I have read soo many negative things about paypal. I am afraid my money will be stucked with paypal now. I could never imagine that.
This is the exact message I get when I signed in with my account:
Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):
Our system requires further account verification.
(Your case ID for this reason is PP-000-946-880-189.)
The things I can only do for this type of account are:
- receive payments
- place logos into your auction listings or on your website
- update your account information
Only! Those are the only things that I can do with my account as of this time, I can't send or withdraw money. I can't even delete the cards associated with my account.
Reading back with paypal's requirements in order to resolved the limitations, I need to confirm my credit card and submit proof of address. And to confirm my address, I need to send them a copy of a bill that shows my name and address. Helpful documents include a utility bill, a cell phone bill, an insurance bill, or a tuition bill. As of this time, the only bill that I can secure is my smartbro billing statement, however, I recently moved to another location and my billing address has not been changed yet. So what should I do?
Dead air - I could not think of anyway to get rid of this limitation. I tried clicking on the resolve button for the limitation appeal, I have found out that there are actually two other alternative ways to provide info. They are to confirm my bank account and to confirm location. And to get the first alternative option done, I must reenter another bank account which I guess I can't do anymore. When I selected the other alternative option which is to confirm location, they would prompt me with a system unavailable error and I need to try again. I can't anymore count how many times I have appealed to try again but I am still getting that same error message. So I will just quit and try tomorrow.
I am so frustrated now that I think am gonna burst, I need the money in few weeks time. If ever you have experienced the same situation, I would greatly appreciate it if you would spend time and leave a comment here and help me with this problem. Thanks in advance!
