VA Bootcamp is shutting down

As I was leisurely scrolling through my Facebook this weekend, my eyes caught a question in our VA Bootcamp students group if the above news is legit.

I was shocked and had to scroll more to confirm.

Indeed, they had announced it through email and coach Jason also held an FB live to confirm that it is true.

GFiber Unli Plan 50% Off - Switcher Exclusive Part 2

 So continuing with our GFiber application, it got approved on Oct 12, Wednesday, by notifying us via email and text message.

Then the following day, they informed us via text message that the installer would be coming.

The installer called my aunt (as her number is the primary contact) to say they are on their way and that we would have to prepare a payment of Php 849.50.

Medyo nagduda ako nung ni-relay sa amin ni auntie ito because we were expecting to pay Php 1,049.50 (50% of the 2099 plan which we have to pay on installation).

The installer arrived at 10 am and did their installation thing, and at the end, he told us the internet connection’s speed would be up to 150 Mbps.

I was shocked. 😳

I told them we applied for the 2099 plan, which promises up to 300 Mbps speed, but he showed us the job order they got which was for a 1699 plan only.

Fast forward from the talking, he contacted CBS, which I believe is the same CBS escalation team from Viber, and he said he submitted the report and would take around 30 mins to 1 hr to get a resolution so he would just return by then.

He returned after lunch, I think, and he told us that we would need a new job order to fix our issue and it might take around a week.

We told them we’ll wait for the new job order and would decline the newly installed 1699 plan because that is not what we applied for.

So yeah, we didn’t pay the Php 849.50 and they just left the modem, etc as is.

Come next day, we got a text message again that an installer would come by.

It was the same person as yesterday.

I don’t know what he told my hubby, but he just did his thing outside our house and told us afterward to test the internet.

I tested the 5g connection via Ookla which exceeded 300 Mbps, then the 2.4g which was around 50-60 Mbps.

Sorry, I forgot to screenshot it.

I asked the installer up to what speed the 2.4g and he said up to 60-70 Mbps (if my memory serves me right).

Same from PLDT, 2.4g is slower but has a wider range, while 5g is much faster but with a limited range.

We paid Php 1,049.50 and he left.

Here are the results of the Speedtest by Ookla tonight.

These are the test results while I was downstairs where the modems were (plan 2099 for Globe, plan 1899 for PLDT).

And these are the result while I was upstairs. 

Let me know what you think.



My aunt got a message from PLDT right after the installation of Globe, offering some freebies like a mesh, etc. if we will renew our subscription with them, which would mean we would get locked up for another 24 months with them.

Huwaw, nakakaramdam na ba sa mga subscribers nila?

At lumakas din bigla ang internet connection namin at biglang bumaba ang ping?

Napagastos ako sa 9.9 Lazada Sale 😆

I only bought four (4) items during the sale, but I paid a total of almost Php 4,000. 😆

But these items have been sitting in my cart or wishlist for a long time na. 

Binabalik balikan ko yung list ko from time to time and pinapakiramdaman ko yung sarili ko kung gusto ko pa ring bilhin, and I remove the items na I don't think that I still want/need. 

The fact na these 4 stayed there for a long time means I still want to purchase it. 

Kaso you know that feeling na may pagdadalawang isip ka pa kung ichicheckout mo na o huwag pa. 

But last Friday's 9.9 sale was the deal for me that made me checkout these items for real.

I Turned 30 (Enchanted Kingdom and Summit Ridge Tagaytay)

Soooo yeah.

As straightforward as it can be, I just turned 30.

For the younger generation, I may be old for them.

For the older ones, I may still be a baby.

For me, I actually don’t know where I stand.

Have I matured enough to be called an adult?

Or still a childish, spoiled brat?

I. Wedding Planning and Requirements Experience

We are a couple who are not fond of planning.

Not that we don’t plan at all, but we usually do things spontaneously.

That is why it took us a year after we got officially engaged to get hitched.

Samsung - Ayala Malls Marikina Has a Lot of FREEBIES 🤩

As I was drafting my supposed-to-be post for today, I changed my mind in the last minute as I am ecstatic to share my experience with the Samsung store - Ayala Malls Marikina branch.

My phone for more than 2 years got broken when we were doing some ocular during our wedding planning.

I slipped down the unrefined stairs while holding my phone at yun ang tumama sa semento.

Ayun, nabasag ang screen.

A Quick Wedding Recap

Our wedding was yet another that was beyond the norm.

No flower girls, no ring bearer, no maid of honor, no best man, etc.

We only had our principal sponsors and secondary sponsors (who also had been our bridesmaids and groomsmen).

Talking about practicality and time saver, huh?

We confirmed this first with the church and they said it was fine.

Even with our reception program, only the essentials were included, and activities that would include everyone's participation, so that no one will be left out and that it would conclude at the earliest time possible to enable everyone to rest (majority of the guests were coming from far places).

Even the sitting arrangement was not the usual.

So people who are traditional and idealistic won't really appreciate all these.

GCash | Unable to Relink and Cash-in from PayPal

So I had this problem of cashing in from PayPal, again.

But this time, I have my younger brother, Poy, with me in this. Haha

This has already happened to me years ago and what worked for me back then was to relink my PayPal to GCash.

You can check it out here.

Vacation | Puerto Galera [Tamaraw Beach Resort and White Beach]

Akalain niyo yun, nakapag-swimming ulit ang lola niyo. 😂

Usually parang once every 'summer' aka dry season lang ako nakakapag-swimming.

Yun bang kapag nakapag-outing na ng isang beses, okay na, next year na ulit ang susunod.

But look at this 'bakasyonista', nakaulit pa. Haha
