Butuan City, Youth Camp and A Lot of Other Stuff

It’s the last day of April and I am excited to what’s in store for next month. For one, I’m going for the first time in 7 years back to the National Youth Camp, only this time, as a kuya. 

Butuan City, according to wikipedia:

Butuan (pronounced /bˈtwɑːn/), officially the City of Butuan (ButuanonDakbayan hong ButuanCebuanoDakbayan sa ButuanTagalogLungsod ng Butuan) and often referred to as Butuan City, is a highly urbanized city in the Philippines and the regional center of Caraga. It is located at the northeastern part of the Agusan Valley, Mindanao, sprawling across the Agusan River. It is bounded to the north, west and south by Agusan del Norte, to the east by Agusan del Sur and to the northwest by Butuan Bay. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 337,063 people.[4]

I believe God is doing something in the city and we are all excited what He will reveal through this season. 

Please pray also for our youth group of twenty something as we travel from Negros Oriental to Cebu by bus and barge and by boat overnight all the way to Nasipit. 

Also,since it will be on a weekday, I’ll be out of the office for the entire week and my boss approved of it. Wohoo!

And oh, I’m also helping with some church stuff with NIHOP’s Negros Youth Convergence 2017:

So,it is going to be a hectic month on top of work so please pray for the following:

  • Provision for travel, the activities and for my family as well
  • Protection in all the travels, promotional stints for the events
  • Good health as I do stuff because you know how I become workaholic

I appreciate your reading and send me a comment if you agree with me in prayer! Salamat!

Things To Come (For Me) this 2011

2011 has finally arrived and to many of us, this is definitely a good year after everything that happened the previous year. I’ve been browsing through the pinoy blogosphere lately and noticed the emerging trend of posting about 2011 and the no. 11 respectively.

Most of the posts revolved around their New Year’s resolution(s), predictions, and expectations and among others for 2011. And after a couple of hours reading all about them, I finally decided to join in the fun by making NOT just one but three blog posts with the same topic.

You’re probably asking  why I’m posting 3 separate entries to one particular topic. I wanted to write a lot of things about this year. After some thought though, I realized that I need to focus on topics related to:

What I want to have

(gadgets, investments and necessities)

What I want to do

(travel, leisure and fun)

What I want to accomplish


(related to work, family life and personal goals)

Why create one NOW?

There comes a time in your life that you realize you’re growing older and you want to accomplish a lot of things (that includes getting the things you want) before you turn 30.

Since the last 5 years of my life has always been about work and I’ve been intoxicated with it ever since, the next few years will be focused on things that is entirely different from what I’ve done before.

Honestly speaking, I’ve entirely forgot that life does not revolve with work alone but should include enjoyment and have fun along the way to balance everything. With that realization comes the idea on focusing my energy to things I love to do, I want to have and I need to accomplish.

I hope this makes sense to you and please expect more posts from me this 2011!

2010: The Preview

I’ve been very busy lately doing so many stuff that I forgot to update this blog for the entire Christmas break. I had the time to visit places, reconnect with former team mates and have fun celebrating the holidays with my close friends and relatives. It was indeed a Christmas like no other.

Don’t worry, I was not on “hiatus” stage (yet) since I have a few blog posts in my draft section but just didn’t have the time to update it or think it over with.

I really enjoyed my long break from December 23 to January 2, 2011. It was a perfect time to be a “bum” for almost two weeks. I had a lot of time in my hands without thinking of work or anything that requires too much effort after a year of so many changes.

Come to think of it, 2010 was truly the year of “change” and the “first of many” which was definitely unexpected earlier last year. And I have to say anything about my 2010 is that it was really a good year and a lot of learning experiences for 12 months.

Happy New Year Everyone!

My Bad Experience with Globe

Globe’s Facebook Unli Browsing

One way to enjoy my past time is to browse through Facebook using my mobile phone. I’ve been doing this for quite some time now and I enjoy every minute of it. It’s also nice to use the site while traveling anywhere since its dependent is just globe’s signal.

Minus the exciting opportunity to chat with friends online, we can browse through profiles and update our status using the mobile site.

Globe’s Bad Internet Browsing Issues

Sad to say, Globe’s Facebook’s mobile browsing seems to be catching up in their new campaign in giving good customer service for many of us. Another challenge will be the timeline from your registration to the time the actual browsing starts. Globe has this habit of deducting the browsing amount and activating your subscription an hour after.

Globe’s Bad Customer Service

Forgive me for ranting but this happened not just once or twice but a couple of times already with Globe’s “inadequacy”. Now, I don’t have any attempt to boycott Globe or even ask anything but I just want to vent out over a few issues I’ve encountered in my last few attempts.

I’ve let it pass by the first time around but when I encountered the same error on my second registration, I went to Globe’s local customer service to inquire about the issue. Unfortunately, they were not able to help me out and advised me to check it again by tomorrow if I still encounter the same issue.

Again, I experienced the same error yesterday and I called their customer service earlier and was cut-off due to bad signal. I tried calling again only to find out that their “technical” specialists only asked me to observe if I will still experience the same dilemma after 24 hours.

Please take note that they give the same solutions which is not really helping. Forgive me for crying out loud, but what’s the purpose of having technical specialists wherein they can’t even handle little issues like these?

Personal Thought’s on what Globe needs to do

I think Globe needs to revamp their customer service tactics to ensure that real and good customer service is being given to all customers especially during these holiday season.

It just shows how they cater to their customer needs by making you “wait and see” instead of fixing the issue the soonest possible time. Sad to say, Globe’s customer service were not able to give concrete solution to something that a user like me is deprived of after deducting P 50.00 from my load.

I’m not sure if Globe is really listening and if not, I think they need to listen now before this goes out of hand.

The “Pacute” Effect for a camera

I went to SM City yesterday and tried looking for a top to pair with my white jeans but unfortunately didn’t find any that fits me.

After being tired of going around the mall, I finally decided to pass by Picture City and inquire about the Canon S220 that I was supposed to buy. The camera was out of stock and my reservation is still pending since it will only be available by Thursday of next week. 😦

They said it was out of stock but I came home with one.

I didn’t want to go home without trying to get a new camera for tonight so I decided to try my luck convincing them to find one. After much “pacute” effect for 5 minutes, the supervisor finally decided to offer his reserved camera of the same brand. And take note, of an additional discounted price of P 3,600.00.

I think luck is on my side and I’m crossing my fingers for those PSP tonight. 😉
