OPPO F1S : Capturing Philippines

0 comments
Share
Traveling the beautiful spots in the Philippines is a therapeutic activity for me in many ways. With the busy and crazy schedules we have at work, we all need to recharge and have a bit of downtime to make sure we have enough energy and vigor to face another work-week. That's why if my schedule will allow it, I make sure to drive the stress away by a quick trip either to Batangas or Tagaytay during weekends.
The most recent trip I made was last weekend (Dec 31, 2016 - Jan 1, 2017) wherein my New Year was spent at Club Balai Isabel Talisay,  Batangas along with my closest friends. It was really a refreshing vacation; where I was able to relax, connect and be surrounded by lush green vegetation and clean air. It all boils down to these experience; making the road trip all really worth it! I'm a city boy, thus, I always look forward to traveling to our beautiful provincial areas to escape the busy humdrum of city life. Don't get me wrong! I love Manila life. I've lived most of my adult life in it - I love breathing it's not-so-fresh-air and road traffic anywhere you go. It's all part of the experience, really. I simply cannot say I love my country without accepting these realities.




Batangas Lake
I know the Philippines has several pristine beaches of a various sand colors – white, brownish, pink, gray, even black tone. It is easy to book a flight and board a plane, boat or drive to your favorite beach destination. However, if you're looking for an alternative to beach trips, there are several other destinations to discover and explore for your weekend escapade. Batangas area is one of them!
Here are some photos of nature I took last week during my trip to Batangas.

If you noticed, I love taking photos of sceneries and design structures from places I visit. This is because I simply get an awe staring at the majestic beauty of nature may it be daytime or nighttime. One can only claim that, we really live in a very beautiful world! 

And what way to capture these beautiful moments by having a snapshot of its elicit grandeur. Nowadays, it is a MUST to have you smartphone with you. Not only for communication reasons, but likewise for camera functions. Most of my blog photos were taken using my smart phone. I need it handy and functional. That's why my number one requirements when travelling to nearby country areas is to have a dependable smartphone with sharp, crisps feature when it comes to taking photos.

This leads me to my agenda in 2017; which is to upgrade my smartphone. I've been scouting for a new smartphone for a while now and I am really eyeing to have OPPO F1s Selfie Expert. Based on the online research, OPPO F1s comes with a 13MP rear camera. It also has a 1/3.06 sensor that allows user to maximize light sensitivity. This is ideal for capturing night events during my travel. Also, since I am a professional blogger who is always on the go, the 3GB RAM and octa-core 64 bit processor makes it seamless to change from one app to the other. This can also support the gamer in me (that's our little secret)! That's why it would be ideal to travel the beautiful country side of the Philippines with an OPPO F1s Selfie Expert unit in my pocket. I'll soon blog about this.

Have a great week to all!

That's why for my first every blog in 2017, I am revealing the latest blog banner of Fierce Blogs!

This is How Bad the Service of Globe Telecom is…

2 comments
Share
I had my fair share of bad experiences in the past when it comes to customer service; but the experience I had today at Globe Telecom, SM Bicutan branch I should say is the worst! At first, I wanted to ignore the poor service and look the other way (so not me!). However, the experience will really test your patience and draw the last drop of hope you have in local customer service.

Here’s the painful Globe Telecom story…
I was unable to connect to the net and use my data plan with Globe and I was notified last night (8:35 PM of Dec 28, 2016) that I have reached my surfing limit (check out the actual message I got from Globe).
Globe Message
At first, I tried to troubleshoot the issue myself to avoid the expected hassle of going to Globe Hub. But after hours and hours of trying to correct the issue with no resolution, I decided to visit the nearest Globe office – SM Bicutan brach.
It was 1:02 PM when I arrived the next day at Globe SM Bicutan branch (Dec 29, 2016). I was full of hope because there were very few customers waiting to be served. In fact, I was the 3rd customer in queue. So, I mused to myself, this should be a quick one. Boy, I was so damn wrong!
My number was 4025 and currently nos 4021 and 4022 were being served. At exactly 1:05 PM, I was already patiently waiting for my turn to be served. I settled calmly to the nearest chair, next to the door way. As I move my way to the vacant space, I immediately noticed how irate-looking ALL the people are inside Globe hub. The best way to describe them is – They all turned into a green eyed monster fuming with anger! This really struck me and I was so curious what’s happening. Out of nowhere, the lady next to me suddenly talked to me, “Sir. Good luck sa inyo. 1 hour na kami dito wala pa rin nangyayari.”
I only smiled a bit to show some concern and friendly nature. But I was really not in the mood to do small talk – not with somebody who appeared angry as Incredible Hulk.

Globe Poor Service

Globe SM Bicutan - Poor Service

Globe SM Bicutan

Time check… It’s 1:44 PM and customers 4021 and 4022 are still being served.

To cut to long story and waiting, yes, I waited for hours and hours! To be exact, I waited for 2 hours and 30 minutes. I was attended to 3:35 PM by the lady below. She tried troubleshooting the issue of my Iphone 7 Plus for another 30 minutes but failed to correct it. I tried to maneuver my phone and tried some steps to connect to the net…. And bingo! I have resolved my own issue! But the sad part is, Globe can never bring back the wasted time they took away from me.

What I think really happened t today hat brought about the poor service of Globe, SM Bicutan branch:

1.       The Customer Service personnel who were scheduled today were not really trained well. They appear to be lost and unable to handle most customer concerns. They look like headless chicken finding solutions to problems they are unaware of.

2.       Technicians are also not focused to single customer they are attending to. They entertain side questions from other customers that lead to delays and impacts the other waiting customers. This is a form of “singit” in my opinion.

3.       Globe personnel chats so much with each other and they do not immediately attend to customer concerns. They walk around too much with no business.

4.       What is also sickening to the stomach is – I even witnessed a customer giving a lady a dollar bill (not sure of the denomination). This is just too wrong to see in a private company. The customer even commented, “Pang Tagaytay mo iha”. The photo below is the recipient of the dollar bill.  
The Globe Lady who received a dollar bill

In my opinion, only 1 person is to be blamed for the poor service and bad customer service skill of Globe Telecom, SM Bicutan branch. This is the responsibility of the manager on duty and he should be sensitive enough to monitor the moods customers visiting their hub. Sadly, with all the chaos happening inside, there was no manager to own the issue and pacify the customers.

Well, I've been stressed today setting up my Fitbit Alta Fitness Wristband (LOL). Actually, I am not kidding! Pretty much, my whole afternoon was spent trying to setup my Alta Fitbit. Never expected that it's this complicated just make the time appear on the wristband.
 
Finally, after 3 hours of painstaking experience trying to figure out how it works, I was able to successfully set up my Fitbit Alta. Congratulations! Now the time is appearing (LOL).
 
Check out the photo...

Don't worry! You are still tuned in to Fierce Blogs and didn't click on the wrong URL (haha). I also have not converted myself into a tech blogger.
 
Our blog for today however is focused on its style and secondary to that would be its function. Almost a week ago, I was tossing and turning and having difficulty sleeping that's why I decided to open my Lazada app. That's when I stumbled upon SeanSean Smart Phone. It comes in vibrant red that's why it really caught my attention.
 
SeanSean Smart Phone
What I love about Lazada's SeanSean Smart Phone:
  • Watch is very stylish and design is very trendy
  • Easy to set-up (even non-tecky folks can manage)
  • Very light and easy to wear around
  • Function is also fab! You can connect your iphone (using BT) and all functions are already available in your smart watch i.e texting, music streaming etc.
  • Battery life is also good. It can last for 2 - 3 days depending on how much you use it
Lazada SeanSean Smart Phone is only PHP1,100.00.

Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush Review

0 comments
Share
I'm finally back to blogging! Being away from blogging for months made me realize that I really miss doing it and I also miss interacting with my readers. I guess over the years of blogging and reviewing products, I somewhat forgot my purpose and the reason why I started blogging in the first place. I needed to be away from it for a while to reassess and regain my blogging purpose (hahaha).
 
On with the blog tonight...
 
Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

I've had the Skinvigorate of Mary Kay for 2 weeks now and I have used it for 4 times. So far here's my experience using Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush.
 
What I love about Skinvigorate:
  • Skinvigorate cleanses my skin well and removes make-up properly
  • Massages my face and neck area
  • My skin feels healthy, supple and smooth after using Skinvigorate
  • After 2 weeks of using it every night, I feel my skin is tighter\
  • Unit is waterproof
Downside:
  • Operated by 2 AA batteries which can be hard to maintain sometimes, I wish unit is rechargeable instead
  • Only comes in 1 color
Skinvigorate is available at Mary Kay catalogue and priced at PHP2,390.00.
 
Overall, the product does wonder to my skin and the price is all worth it! Skinvigorate is a good skincare investment to have in your bathroom.

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Radiant White and Hydrating Foam Cleanser Review

0 comments
Share
Last July I posted a sneak peek of Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv products that I was testing. To be particular, I was testing Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Radiant White and Hydrating Foam Cleanser. For 3 complete months I tested both products following the routine below:
 
 
  • Hydrating Foam Cleanser - 2x a day, morning and night time
  • Radiant White - once a day, after taking a bath

Tonight, I am ready to share with you my experience and recommendation about Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv products.
 
  • Really cleanses my face without making my skin dry and scaly
  • Makes skin supple and soft
  • No greasy feeling after usage
  • Also exfoliates skin during usage
  • No harsh feeling or strong chemical scent
  • You only need a small pea size to clean your entire face and neck
  • Priced at PHP2,900 for 4.2 oz - money's worth!
 
  1. Works as a moisturizer once applied at night.
  2. You'll noticed that skin is lighter after 7 days of application.
  3. No greasy or itchy effect after application.
  4. No harsh feeling or strong chemical scent.
  5. Waking up in the morning, you'll notice skin is softer and feels well-rested.
  6. Priced at PHP4,500 at 200 ml (Suggested Retail Price)

Estee Lauder

Both products are the best skincare I have tried so far. Try them yourself and see the big difference I am trying to explain here :)
 
Good night!

Sunday Hits and Jersey Boys

0 comments
Share
For a Sunday, today was extra busy and fun at the same time. I was up as early as 4:00 AM on a Sunday morning for some personal matters to arrange.  From there, my Sunday basically kicked in and span off to a busier afternoon in preparation to watch the brand new staging of Jersey Boys at the Meralco Theater. In fact, I just arrived from a dinner after enjoying The Story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons along with my cousin. The show is superb! In fact, I am still trying to figure out if I will post a blog review about Jersey Boys.
 
Jersey Boys
 
Watch out for that this coming week (or may be not!).
 
If you have not seen Jersey Boys, please find time to do so. It's really a good show.
 
By the way, I also tested some make-up products today which I will share to you the coming week.
 
Have a safe and productive week to all!

It's been a while since I last posted a blog about the look I wore. So, today, I decided to feature and post the look I had last week during my out of town trip with friends. Of course, the look has something to do with layering (my eternal favorite).
 
Layering can be sometime tricky. But my favorite is to layer from thin clothing underneath to covering it with a thicker patterned clothing. Something, You can layer using colors and even prints. I'll soon post a look similar to this. But for today, here's the look I will share...

I am very particular with the shampoo I use daily. For the longest time I have been using Brown Rice Moisture Shampoo. It's not harsh and it's organic. But lately, it's getting harder and harder to find this from the store. So, I am hunting for that next great shampoo and conditioner combo to fill my life.
 
Until I came across Ke'fen Shampoo 3 weeks ago while browsing Intagram. I got intrigued an gave it a try. I got myself 1 bottle of shampoo and condition. For the last 3 weeks, I used it every morning and night time to clean and condition my hair.
 
Kafen Shampoo

Here's the result and my experience:
  • Shampoo and conditioner are both light and do not make my scalp dry
  • I have very sensitive scalp but with Ka'fen I did not develop dandruff or itchy scalp
  • Hair feels very clean and moisturized
  • Does not leave any greasy effect on hair once dry
  • Scent is addicting but not overpowering.
  • Hair feels soft and really moisturized
  •  Hair is not oily even after 8 hours of application
Kafen
Overall, I am very happy with Ka'fen Shampoo and Conditioner. Looks like we have another mainstay in my bathroom for a long, long time!
