Globe Telecom Service

My Goodness!

Globe Telecom does it again! In Gensan yesterday Globe cannot send, call or receive calls from other Globe subscribers. It can however send sms to Sun and Smart and vice versa. This started sometime in the afternoon. I wonder how many people were annoyed by this. I know I was. Full service was restored at 6 pm on my watch. With this type of service, it’s no wonder why a lot of my peers, friends and people I know have also started subscribing to Sun Cellular. With Suns wider coverage now, even I have already have a Sun sim. Oh well, that’s the beauty of competition. More players in the market, more choices.

I was in Davao City

I was in Davao City since Sunday. Last Sunday after blogging about the extreme weather in Gensan, I waited until around 5 pm and then drove all the way to Davao. I just went directly home. My mom prepared dinner for me. We just talked and talked and watched TV. ( House MD at AXN )

Monday the whole day it was work work work. Well not really the shoveling stones and rocks type of work but it was just a meeting. The morning was spent with my colleagues and my boss in the conference room of our company’s depot. There are just six of us under one supervisor and we are all male. Four are assigned in Davao, one in Zamboanga and one in Gensan (me). We then fetched our Field Training Officer at the airport around lunch time and had a very scrumptious meal at Marina Tuna Restaurant. Anybody who had eaten there would agree that the sea foods being served are really delicious. Marina Restaurant is going to the north of Davao. It’s actually far from the city proper. It’s along the national highway in Sasa, Davao City. If you are from the Davao Airport then it’s just a few minutes away. I don’t know if they have a branch somewhere else in the city. I hope they do. Continue reading

Weather in Gensan

Good Morning Sunshine!

My Goodness!


It’s very hot outside! I mean really really hot. The sun is shining like there would be no tomorrow. I would not be caught outside of my room at this temperature.

Just so you can imagine how hot this city can get, ill tell you some incident mostly inside my car. I have no garage for the company car so it stays most of the time outside the gate because my other car (the one I own) has the priority over the garage. Sometimes I move it so that it would be under my small Longgan tree (Money tree as some call it). The tree is so small it would only partially cover the car. I usually leave a window slightly open so it would not get so hot inside. One time, I was not able to park the car under a shade for a whole day. The following day, the cd jewel or cd case as you may call it which was left on top of the dashboard warped like it was from the microwave oven. Just imagine how hot it must have been inside the car to warp a cd case like that. Continue reading

Here I Go Again

Well, here I go again, starting a new blog.  I had a blog before (around 3 years ago) at I have a blog at my Friendster and also in Multiply and in Virtual Tourist. I never really wrote that much though. I hope with this one, I can write as often as I could.
