Design Your Dell Inspiron R Switch Lid Contest


When I learned about this contest currently running in Facebook, I immediately opened my Adobe Photoshop and started designing.

This would only take at most five minutes to do actually. Here are the things you need to do:

Palm 8 Goes Magical

To eight years and more! 


One of our account managers had mentioned this last night during our account's eight anniversary party which was amazing because it's Fairytale Cosplay them. The party was held at Fort San Pedro and to feel the magic, most of the agents went to the party with their own wonderfully made costumes. There were fairies, Walt Disney fairy tale characters like Jasmine and Cinderella, movie characters like Pirates of the Caribbean's Jack Sparrow and Wonder woman herself as well,Japanese anime Sakura of Card Captor Sakura and even more.

The event started at almost seven, it was a special celebration since one of our clients made it to the party, there were couple of Webos Phones given to the agents which was one of the awaited parts. Thre were lots of food varieties unfortunately, I didn't like them much. They were just so-so. I didn't even finish what was in my plate. Good thing the deserts were there to fill up my stomach, specially the mango crepe though it was not that good compared to SM's Rock n' Roll Crepes.

How to Get PhilHealth ID Card

I went to PhilHealth office the same day right after I finished changing my incorrect SSS member data.

I was hesitant to go to the Philhealth office since I didn't know its location; all I knew was that it is just in front of the old SSS office. So from the SSS office, I rode a PUJ with route code 14D, I reached Golden Peak Hotel where the Philhealth office is situated.

The Cebu office is just a small space compared to SSS', there were a number of people inside already though it was still 8:20 in the morning. I immediately approached the front desk and ask what to do about getting a PhilHealth card. The gentleman gave me a priority number and a request slip for PhilHealth Identification card where one needs to write down his or her surname, given name, middle name PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) which I don't know what and your signature over printed name.

How To Update Incorrect SSS Name

Cebu City SSS office

This Monday has been a busy and long day for me, I woke up as early as 1 o'clock in the morning. I watched a movie and as promised, prepared to go to SSS (Social Security Service) office. Tanya and I agreed to meet at the site at 5am.

Tanya arrived earlier so she had reserved a spot for me in the line which raised the other people's eyebrows, teehee. I was late with our agreed time, I reached the office at 6:10. Gladly, I didn't have to wait for a long time since the guards had already opened the office at 6:30 anyway, we had a little chat about how the Breaking Dawn movie came out.

Since I came to update my SSS records, we have to separate and fall in different lines. I actually have an incorrect middle name, thanks to our municipal registrar who had typed it incorrectly but it was already been updated and NSO authenticated, click here to know how I changed it.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn First Part


The Twilight Saga has been a hit in the cinemas for over years and so the final chapter started with a first part last November 18, 2011. I am not too into twilight as much as I am with Vampire Diaries because of many reasons, one is because Damon Salvatore is just better than Edward Cullen, IMHO though. But I still watch the saga series since the first chapter and I also purchase its collectible stuffs just like the Limited Twilight Tumblers from Jollibee

And so yesterday, November 19, 2011 Philippine time, James and I together with my colleagues finally watched the said movie. Thanks to Ayala Cinema's sureseats, we never have to wait for that long lines to get our tickets. Cathy had already requested it online conveniently thru their website, sureseats.com and all we did at the Ayala Cinemas was to wait for 6:35pm. Since ASAP Rocks also had a show before the movie, we attempted to take a look but we were just so unfortunate that we reach Ayala Terraces with thousands of ASAP fans all over the area. We only saw Marky Strome, the G-Force and Bugoy Drillon from a far. Worse was when we were on out way to the cinema, we almost experience stampede. Anyway, we were still lucky we came out of the crowd safe.

Missing Government IDs

While my colleagues are chatting on gbuzz about our twilight saga The breaking Dawn part 1 movie schedule today we had gone to the ID topic without knowing how. I soon realized that I don't have any government ID at all, I can't really consider my driver's license as one because of I-can't-tell reasons. 

One of my colleagues told me that those identification cards are really important most specially if you are traveling and that was my turning point. I then thought of why I don't have any IDs at all except for my company ID. I didn't bother securing those IDs since after all I can't really get out of the country due to my DOST scholarship. I realized I was actually wrong, I should have exerted effort getting those but then I thought, I actually had tried once.

I recalled that time when I was going through the process of correcting my middle name, I was required to provide supporting documents and one of the few was voter's id. I don't have one so I immediately went to our town's Commission on Elections' office and I won't forget what the personnel told me, he said that only a few voters are given those cards, unfortunately I am not one of them. This is unacceptable but what can I do? I asked for reasons, they said that's how it really works, wow! I was surprised! Is it because the Philippine Government has been really poor that it can't provide cards for every voter? I felt discriminated of course. In the end, I went home with the certified-true-copy application for registration instead.

Singapore Souvenirs

Aside from being an amazingly clean and beautiful country, Singapore has become a hub for the call center agents I had known from my recent company. Every agent or colleague that I had come to talk with dream to go and work in this country. If not work, it has become the top most want-to-visit place and indeed they would certainly do what it takes to get there. Thanks to some airline seat sales, traveling to the neighboring countries isn't too hard now adays. 

A number of my colleagues went on a three-day vacation last week to Singapore. They had the best time of their lives and funny how I didn't feel jealous. Okay I admit, I was slightly jealous. I want to travel as well but I don't have any budget for it yet. But then, I am happy that my colleague-slash-insurance agent friend went too! And because of that, I was able to receive not just one but two Singapore key chains! Hurray! Well, the other one is actually for James. I love it and I am super thankful to Mermer for the pasalubong.

Travel: Naga City


Because I won Simple Yet Rock's Level Up Giveaway Anniversary, I had the opportunity to visit Naga City where I would be claiming the Php 1000 prize. Naga City is just 30 minutes away from Cebu City if via mini bus but will take you more than an hour if via a jeep. I am not new to the city since I have been passing it every time James and I need to go to Oslob however, I haven't been able to visit the place. I am happy that I had the chance to visit it last weekend. Thanks to the changes made with my new work schedule and I am now able to enjoy my weekends.

At three o'clock, James and I rode on a mini bus going to Naga City which ran pretty fast and surprised when we stepped out because the old sports complex building is now the new Metro Market. Curious about how it looked inside, we went in and ate some snacks inside. The building is more of a grocery store but they also have some food stands inside, like most Metro Gaisano grocery stores.

We met Roxanne from Simple Yet Rock and claimed my prize as well. We had a little chat and since she is also on her way to SM, we bid our goodbyes and parted ways. We then took our time to enjoy the place. We didn't go any farther, we just focused on the main city itself. Here are the shots we took while roaming the area.

Manila Ocean Park Souvenir




Souvenir from my colleague Rhea when she and her family visited Manila last week during the All Souls day vacation. She had given each of us our first ever Manila Ocean Park souvenir item. It's actually a key-chain however, there were different kinds of designs. I owned the luminous orange fish which has Ocean Park's Logo engraved on it. I didn't choose it actually, Rhea herself selected the design and color for each of us. I am happily contented with what I got, thanks a lot to Rhea.

Me Hearts Korean Drama: Coffee Prince

Synopsis from wiki.d-addicts:
The life of Go Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye) is not easy; she works many jobs to pay off debts and even gave up her feminine image. Choi Han Kyul (Gong Yoo) is the heir of a big food company, but his grandmother wants him to settle down, so she arranged many dates for him. After Eun Chan bumped into Han Kyul and was mistaken for a boy, Han Kyul decided to hire Eun Chan to be his gay lover in order to avoid the arranged dates. Desperately in need of money, Eun Chan had no choice but to accept. Han Kyul's grandmother also made Han Kyul in charge of a filthy coffee shop in danger of being bankrupt. Eun Chan begged to work at the coffee shop, and not long after, feelings start to spark, except, how would Han Kyul accept his "homosexuality"?
I would say I had enjoyed this drama because of the characters and the story itself. Though the boy to boy situation was still common, the story had it's own uniqueness due to the environment and the cast who portrayed the characters. I like how they all had different personalities and how had complimented to it. Most specially the main cast, Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo.

Limited Breaking Dawn Tumblers Only in Jollibee

Twilight Saga fever is on again with the upcoming premiere of the movie "Breaking Dawn: Part 1", this will be the last part of the Twilight series and that they had cut it to two parts. I suppose the second part will be next year and in line with this, Twilight fan stuffs are already out again in the market.

Last year, I was able to buy a Twilight Eclipse tumbler in Jollibee and since the next movie is just around the corner, I was already expecting for another set of tumblers from the same fast food chain. 

Just last week together with my colleagues went to a Jollibee branch next to our office and viola, look what they got for us?


Simply purchase Jollibee Burger or Jolly Hotdog meals and one can get this tumbler for Php 25 only from November 3 to December 3, 2011 for dine-in, take-out, and drive-thru transactions only.

There are actually two irresistible designs, one with Edward and Bella and another design with the three of them including Jacob. All of us selected the second design.

Lie: Cebu Pacific's Php11 Christmas Fare To All?

If you are a traveler, you must have followed CebuPacificAir on their respective social media sites like Facebook or Twitter for new updates like seat sales.

Balut So Good!

How do you find the above photo? Is it looking good?

Most Filipinos are fond of eating this Asian cuisine called "balut" most specially during drinking sessions. I haven't eaten one for a long time already. When James and I were in Tagbilaran City last month and were taking photos at the port, a young man of age 12-13 came over while singing out loud "baluuuuut, baluuuut". I had no plans of eating one then but James was determined. That balut up there is just 16 days old from birth, notice the nerves and the black feathers? I can't consume this type of balut.

Actually, there are different kinds of commercial balut. It varies from 14 days old, 16 days old and18 days old as far as I know. I only eat the first kind because the head and it's feather's aren't developed yet compared to the rest. I couldn't remember when and where was the last time I ate one. The only thing I remember is that it costs Php 11 at that time. Amazingly, the price had risen up to Php 16.

For me, the soup inside the egg gives its flavor and it is my favorite part. Whenever I eat one, I would surely consume the soup first. It is most tasty when you add special vinegar (made by the vendor) and salt.

Me Hearts Korean Drama: Lie To Me


Not too long ago, I talked about the K-drama Lady Castle or much commonly known as My Fair Lady here in the Philippines. I was happy with how the drama went to so I looked up on some other series that Yoon Eun Hye had appeared too. Aside from Princess Hours and Coffee Prince (I never was able to finish it), I just realized that she had actually appeared in Lee Min Ho's Personal Taste as well. Anyway, I got intrigued with this drama titled Lie To Me where Eun-Hye was the main character and this is her latest drama so last Saturday night, no it was already Sunday dawn, without hesitation I started watching it and boy, how I loved the series. Want to ask me why, check the synopsis first from asianmediawiki.com:
