Mail Call: Strapya World (nth time)
You know, I’m kinda wondering why I haven’t had my picture uploaded in Strapya World’s website with the title “Best Customer” underneath it. Because when I’m bored, happy, sad or just itching to buy something, it’s usually their store I end up at. Like today, when this arrived: Awww, thanks for making my day better, Strapya! I didn’t buy that much this time. Just these: ...
The Papertrail Pen
I hit Papertrail today after a slightly hellish day at pullouts to look for presents for some friends celebrating their birthdays. I love Papertrail. It’s a tiny shop for stationery addicts like me (and probably you). I was proud of myself for having only bought a folder and pen for myself and stuck to my list. My usual shopping for gifts usually ends up with myself as the happiest...
The Human Kangaroo
On our way to post-movie dinner last Sunday from the mall, I asked Jolo, who was in the backseat with my bag, to fish out my little owl pouch where I had put enough change for parking. Jolo rummaged in my bag for a bit and handed me my Hello Kitty as a nerd pouch. “Is this it?” “No, the owl one, please.” more rummaging “This?” (my Artwine felt pouch with a panda —> tsk, guys, hello!...
Online Shipping (The Virgin's Guide)
As promised in my earlier entry about online shopping, here is the companion guide to shipping your goodies to you. I figured now was the best time as any since the Internet is a mine of online shopping deals up to Tuesday, it being Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. (Here’s a Cyber Monday story I wrote for PDI Super for more info.) This is the best time for you to get your feet wet with...
I’m praying I won’t find anything I want to buy —or discover that my recent Mac purchase is now half off (I highly doubt it, but you never know).
Globe Update: (Not as long, but just as bad)
(avatar via MakeMe —> thanks to Pammy for the reco!) So, two weeks ago, I posted a complaint letter to Globe Telecom regarding my “phantom” mobile Internet charges as fellow complainant Shiloah calls them. Not only did they not respond (AT ALL) to my e-mail, my bugging them on Twitter was useless as well —they replied a couple of times and even sent a direct message...
Love is in the Air
I was already having a great Sunday doing work that didn’t feel like work when I received a text from Dan, aka my favorite person of the month. Why? I’ll tell you why. Because he totally made my Sunday. Because of this: I had been waiting for this for what seemed like forever — especially to someone who has the patience of a puppy. Well, forever was twenty-five days,...
Mail Call: Pimpin' gadgets, @Gelaskins style
A few bored nights ago (in reality, Jill was online shopping and I got envious), I ended up ordering customized skins from my favorite gadget-skinning site, Gelaskins. I was glad I managed to rein myself in and ordered only two, because they arrived today. (Courtesy of Johnny Air. I think I’ll brave the local postal system for my next Gelaskins order since it arrives packaged in an...
The Globe Telecom 24-hour challenge
My Globe line got cut today because of my unpaid mobile Internet charges which is still under investigation. I’m seriously fucking tired of going to the business center — especially since nothing seems to get resolved anyway. I’m trying out their email helpline, let’s see how fast response is. I’m seriously not expecting anything anymore (yes, it’s come to...
