An unexpected blessing, I never thought the digital camera I bought has a free sun glasses… I saw a stub when I was looking for a manual to familiarize my self with canon. I was hesitant seeing “claim your free CK shades this promo is good only for September.”
Before doing something stupid, I called up Canon
Joy said that Canon is in Obrero, (ala eh dina-daanan ko yun sinasabi niya pero wala talaga akong nakitang Canon doon)
When I called up Canon in our office, Ryan answered the phone, my first question was “is it true that you are giving away free CK shades?” he replied “yes ma’am drop by in our service center along with your Canon box, warranty stub and invoice”
I asked “where kayo dito sa Obrero?” he replied “nako ma’am lumipat na kami, nan dito kami sa Bajada sa may Water District”
I was hesitatnt I said “open kayo during Saturday” he said “no ma’am bakit?” I replied “ah ok sige nalang kasi office hours ko 8am-5pm I’m sure close narin kayo” he answered “if you are really coming over pwede kitang hintayin upto 7:00pm”
He gave me his cellphone number he said to text him earlier before 5:00pm kung pupunta na ako para hintayin niya ako… and he asked for my cell phone number… binigay ko eh! (^_^) it’s just a number.
Oh my gosh! I was very surprise ang galing naman ng service nila ha (^_^)
Yesterday I text him I will surely drop by but before hand he already text me first the night before “na sana maka-punta ako kagad kasi paubos na ang mga shades”
Kaya yesterday around 3:00pm I text him na pupunta talaga ako to please wait for me… he quickly replied and said “yes I will wait for you” (^_^)
I asked my good friend Eric pano mag punta ng Water District… sinagot bah naman ako ng “magbayad ka bill Aice? Sarado nayan by the time maka-punta ka doon, sakay ka lang ng Sasa, Panacan or Lanang” so told him my reason bakit ako punta doon. Ana siya “ayos kayo!” mag-pasama sana ako sa kanya kaya lang parang wag nalang.
Dali-dali akong umalis ng office kahapon 4:30pm pa lang naka handa na ako and I was waiting for the time to strike 5:00pm… 5:05pm log-out… alis kagad. Zoom!!!
I know its going to be a long journey imagine from “KM 4 Matina MacArthur Highway” (GSIS banda) going to Bajada Water District banda sa may under construction na Robinson harap noon ang Canon Service Center Davao waaa double ride with all the traffic.
Na flat pa talaga yung jeep sinakyan ko it was Sasa R.Castillo waaa!!!
Stranded between Convenience Store JP Laurel and Gaisano Mall...
Ang hirap pumara ng jeep sa alanganin nasa gitna ng walang yellow box!
High way siya eh!
But anyway it was good traffic, I have manage to ride another jeep (^_^)
Ayan nakarating narin ako sa whew!
I wipe my face and fix my hair a little bit
Canon Service Center Here I am!!!
When I entered, they were all males and only one lady, all the guys were staring at me, everyone was speechless they were just staring!
So I smiled and said “uhmm I’m Aice the one who will claim a CK shades?”
then a guy said “oh yes right yes!” I quickly recognize his voice so I replied “ikaw si Ryan?” and he said “yeah yes yes ako si Ryan” and he was staring at me, so I sat down and look at him he was still staring!
I said “uhmm ano dapat ko gawain?” sabi niya “ah yeah do you have the invoice, box and warranty stub? …”
So I gave it to all to him, and the other guy at the counter asked me “USeP ka noh?”
wow I was very surprise only a USeP can recognize me!
So I answered “USeP pud diay ka?” he laugh a bit and smiled “familiar man gud ka ai recognize ka nako”
I just smiled back and he continued “si Ryan USeP pud na siya, madami man dito tiga USeP” so ayon kwento gamay kay mga USeP man…
And so I thought “hmmm…kaya pala nakatitig sila parang nakakita ng multo na surprise sila pagkita sa akin???”
After a few mins… Ryan handled me a long Box with all the shades… hmmm…. yan nag sige na ako pili… Calvin Klein shades that fits on my face was worth P4,490 (Php Pesos).
Now I really don’t know if it’s genuine or fake but the shades has a hologram sticker that said BLi Authorize Dealer, Seal of Authenticity .
(I’m surprise is this really the reality? may CK Shades na ako?!(^_^)
There were only about less than 10 actually, and most design big and extravagant, well CK eh! What can I say?
I wanted a simple design that goes along with all kinds of clothes for everyday wear.
Mabuti nalang meron kaisa-isang natira. (^_^) yipppeeeiii!!! Meron na akong bagong shades.
God’s my witness ang tagal ko nangarap makabili ng bagong shades but there was so many reasons not to because of the price the ones that I like are usually 2k up… sabi ko mag-ipon muna ako… my current sun glasses, college pa ako nito it’s AXN medyo may sira na pero it is still very good. Kaya I said sige lang pwede pa man eto.
Anyway about Ryan, hinatid niya ako palabas then he asked “samahan ko nalang kayo magtawid?” I smiled and said “ok”
Well we talked a bit, he asked some questions, he gave me his calling card, he shared some information waaa parang nagkwentohan na kami ganon?!
Gosh! Hmmm… haba na ng post ko ha! CK shades lang dapat ‘kong e-kwento eh!
So to end this article…
Tama nga sabi nila kung may tough times mayron din blessings (^_^) weeeiii!
This CK Sun Glasses is truly worth remembering.
