EPIC FAIL FOR SMART BRO

I've been using Smartbro for more than 3 years already and I haven't had any serious problems until now. I had this problem before the typhoon Pedring and I troubleshot my gadgets, isolated that it's the connection that's the problem. I opened up a ticket with Smartbro last week, Thursday. They advised me to "monitor" the connection because the base station is down. Next day, same problem. Opened another ticket and I was promised a tech dispatch anytime soon. I waited for a WEEK. So the week that I was waiting, the connection was very VERY VERY slow. Worst than dial-up. Imagine that. Gmail sign-in page would come up but once I log-in, it'll take some time and then display a "Try re-loading again". Is that what I paid for? Then came the Php999 bill. Do you think I would have the mood to pay for it?

I called Smartbro tech line again yesterday because AGAIN, the connection is DOWN. I would get a valid IP address from the bass station but the page would just not load. They gave me a ticket again promising that they'd forward this to the technical team for a possible dispatch. WTF. So meaning, I was promised a dispatch last week but the agent did not actually endorsed it. Worst part is that line kept on DISCONNECTING. I had to call them again three times.

On my third call, I've disconnected the router and went straight to the modem from the laptop. Same shit. Valid IP but no Internet. We assigned a static IP and rebooted the laptop. Guess what? Same shit. NO INTERNET CONNECTION. Guess what they'd told me.... "Monitor the connection while we endorse this to the technical department." Wow. What a script. So I would 'monitor' until I get a connection? That's bullshit. How will I monitor the connection when they assign an static IP on my computer when their connection is running on DHCP. Now I have 4 tickets opened and 2 pending dispatch. Nice.

Before this shit happened, I called SUN two days ago and inquired about the pocket-wifi. They got back to me that same day and told me that my application for the SUN broadband was approved. I just need to pass some xerox copy docs and the unit will be delivered to my doorstep on Monday. No cash out. Bills will be reflect on the next statement.

Difference with the SUN pocket wifi is that I can't use my router anymore, but I can connect 5 users to it, PLUS I can bring it anywhere. I don't think I have 5 laptops with me so it seems fair. PLUS PLUS, it's cheaper. Php649 a month. I can't wait til Monday so I can have a decent connection. Hope this new service will do me good.

Worst part is almost over. Later I will go to Smart Wireless Center and have the Smart bro disconnected permanently. They might have me pay for the remaining bill that I did NOT use. I hope they don't, or else.... I would probably burst my frustration to the sales rep and make a scene. Of course, I don't want that to happen. Wah poise eh.

Epic fail for Smartbro.

Cookies for Christmas

It's that of the year again! And I'm thinking of what to give to my friends as early as now. This year, I want to give something that they can use or eat. Two years ago, I gave away tokens and last year, I gave away brownies and crinkles. But since I don't have the proper equipment and training for that, I was thinking of buying and send a cookie basket for each one of my closest friends. My sister's friend recently opened an online store on the Internet (FB) and she just announced that her slots have been fully occupied. That's mean, she's not taking orders till December. Fully booked! Wow! It means her small business is growing better. And for that, I may need to order from someone else, or make a batch again myself. Let's see.

Train horn it is

My brother-in-law's brother really loves cars. I remember when we went to their house few months ago, I was shocked to see mags installed on his car. I don't know anything about mags you see but the ones he has on his car is one kick-ass monster. Then we had a family dinner last weekend and I was surprised to see same car. My sister said, BIL approved they'd use it that night. Then I was blow-away when I learned that same car has the cool train horn installed. It was really loud. Perfect for troublesome bus drivers here in the city. Well, you'll know what I mean if you're living here. I remember my husband once told me that he wants to install train horns on his motorcycle because of the same bus drivers. I guess he really needs one right.

MISSING THE GUYS... on a lazy family weekend.

This is what I call the "Family Lazy Weekend" because we're all here at my parent's house doing all the lazy stuff... watching TV, browsing, eating, sleeping...

Woke up with that favorite smell of tuyo, fried rice, tomatoes, spam, cheese dogs and coffee. Mamsie really knows what to cook when we're all here. I love family lazy weekends!

I hurried to do all my work on the web. I even sorted the links, tabs and chat box here, imagine that. Now my site looks presentable again.

Tell me crazy but my finger automatically chose to play Marry Me Amy's draft playlist on the iTouch, then upon hearing them, it sends me back from the time we were arranging them. From the time when we would jam three times a week. Five hours straight non-stop jamming. Then eat snack/dinner before I go to work. Common likes, stories that we shared and laughs that we had. Such great feeling. Now I'm missing the band MORE. I don't why but it's like there's a BIG chunk of my heart that belongs to these guys...



~ Para Para : Marry Me AMY ~



~ Because Of You : Marry Me AMY ~

I'm proud to say that I'm not only a member of this band, but I'm also a fan. Miss these guys, soo bad.

Ace Water Spa

I definitely recommend Ace Water Spa to everybody who really wants to relax. It's our first time to experience Ace Water Spa this afternoon and it's all worth it. Php550 entrance for adults, Php250 for kids below 4feet and Php393 for senior citizens. Maximum of 4 hours use of all the facilities. The locker area was awesome. Everything you need--it's all there! The kids had a very nice time. I super love the sauna bath and the herbal pool. It's very relaxing and took all my body pains away. We're definitely gonna go back. Oh btw, we went to the new branch in Pasig. Thumbs up! Anyway, get ready for an awesome experience at Ace Water Spa and definitely an empty stomach after hahaha. And here's more on the after feeling---sleepy! Everybody is snoring here haha. Goodnight! Zzzzz...

*No, this is not a paid advertisement.

Excited!

It's all set! Tanduay Rhum Rockfest here we come! Then Ace Water Spa tomorrow. Wow watta weekend.

Internet still no good here. I already reported this the other day. What's frustrating about this is that I can't even sign-on to fb here on the iTouch when it was suppose to be a breeze. Now I'm seeing another bill that I need to pay but their service sucks. Okay I'll stop. I don't want to spoil my Friday anyway.

I smell something savory. The neighbor's must have been cooking something good. I love cooking. I love to eat =)

Anyway, there's so many things I wanna say about life but every time I try to put it on words, it just disappears! Words please don't go...

Hope we don't get any rain later because I want to enjoy the rockfest tonight. Oh my I'm excited again.

Thank God it's pay day Friday!

Gotta have Faith

I started jogging last week because the weather was good, until yesterday due to my period. I promised myself that I'd loose weight before December and I panicked because it's already October tsk tsk! I know I can do it so please don't rain.

Work was stressful as always. Although I had enough sleep yesterday, I'm still dozing off especially during wee hours.

Thank GOD for the iTouch! The lappy is impossible to use and I feel baf about it. I borrowed Windows 7 already. It's been awhile since I install my last OS. I hope I can do justice with the lappy.

3 days to go! Yeah! Coz I'm on vacation leave on Friday. Happiness I know. We'll be watching Tanduay Rhum Rockfest @ MOA. I'm so looking forward to Hungry Young Poets' performance! It's actually their reunion gig so I wouldn't miss it for the world. Haaayyy.... I miss playing.... I miss my band ;(

I'm still keeping my hopes up. Yes, I have faith.

Great... Great weekend.

I can't believe I did it but yes, went to work for 8 days last week. Middle of the week, met with some friends and went to the wake of a friend's dad. I was crushed to see my friend and her family like that. But all I can do is pray. Weekend came like a breeze. Stayed at home whole day last Saturday and finally went home in Bulacan yesterday. We had a small despedida lunch for hubby's cousin because she will go to Australia on Wednesday for work. Lucky I know. Good thing we went hear mass late afternoon, then had a nice family dinner at Mann Hann at SM North. I love weekend rest day. Wish I could have 'em like all year round.

Monday. Sun is shinning outside. Hope everybody's feeling great today. Well, everybody deserves to be. Yes, I talking to you....

Workout

I was completely jealous when I saw the Marshall headphones my dad got from his 60th Birthday. I really want one. Badly. Then I thought, I can never really use it especially now I'll be working out a lot. I'll be needing one of those ipod nano headphones, so I can sync my iTouch and record all the workouts I'll be doing every week. Yeah, speaking of workout, I've read somewhere on the Internet that if I really want to slim down, I really really need to work for it. Goodluck!

Design

I just from my mom this morning that she already send the papers to my sister in Dubai. It's their marriage contract. We need them to sign it and send it back to us. Maybe by week next, we'll get the papers. I suggest they scan the document from document imaging, just in case, we loose it. But of course, we don't want that to happen right. Anyway, it's only 3 months before my sister's wedding and the invitations are already in progress, and for the gown designs--I really need to pick what design I would wear. It's hard you know especially with all those cool design on the web.

Damn slow!

Damn Internet is so slow at home. I already cleaned up the laptop and it's still crawling. I know for sure it's the connection because I'm getting the same slowness on the iTouch too. I've been thinking on changing our provider to SUN broadband so we can bring it anywhere but the wireless router will be useless.

So here's what I did:
1) Connect the laptop directly to the modem.
--Tried this already but the laptop is not responsive. Yeah, it's so damn slow.
2) Rebooted/Power cycled.
--Tried several times already!
3) Brought the laptop to another wireless network.
--I actually tried the laptop at my sister's workplace (WET CENTRUM) and it's working fine.
--And the iTouch too. Dang! So there...

And here's what I need to:
1) Call the smartbro people and have the connection checked.
--Maybe they need to adjust antenna to a different direction or something.
2) Reload the OS on the laptop.
--The laptop's already what--2 years old? and Vista it's just plain crap.
--A co-worker was so nice to lend me his Windows 7 installer but there's two more borrowers ahead of me. Perfect!
3) Change ISP.
--Switching to another ISP means a bond fee of 12 months with the new service.
--This is the last option (I think).

Did I miss anything?

I know I need to do something right away because sneaking post at work is not healthy. Besides, I can't do my usual Internet browsing and the hubby's complaining big time. Now what?
