Reviews on BayanTel DSL Plan 1099 2Mbps

I started using BayanTel this year August 29 and paid 1,000 for installation fee.

Everything seem to be OK for 30-days ... But on Oct. 12, my Internet was gone for more than 2 hours in the afternoon... Oct.12, 2015 Reference# 490639 They said that they are in process of System Upgrade...

Then on Oct. 25 I experience cut off and Intermittent connection, my Reference number: 813059, = They replied me that they are having system upgrade...
And, will be back before 9pm on the same date... The Internet did went back around 9pm...

But, still I'm experiencing cut offs every now and then specially in the afternoon and night!

Now, on Oct. 31, 2015 (Reference# 1118369) the cut off was more longer as in whole afternoon of Saturday no Internet! - The technician went to our house Monday afternoon and said that they are merging the Globe and Bayantel = that is causing the Internet cut off but it will be better again very soon!

But since Thursday 3pm November 5, 2015 up to now as in NO INTERNET! The modem lights are all off except for continuous green light on Power, WLAN, and LAN, the rest as in DSL and INTERNET have no lights = totally gone!

I reported so many times via calling them over the Phone, Email and even texting the Agent who did the transaction to our house, up to now I DO NOT HAVE ANY FEEDBACK WHAT IS HAPPENING!?

They only said that a Technician will drop by in our house within 24-hours.
Huh? Where is that Technician? It's been more than 72-hours now NO TECHNICIAN AND STILL NO INTERNET!

Really it's getting to my nerves! Because I need to Do work... and I have to spend additional 50pesos per 24 hours of Internet connection in my SmartBro PrePaid Internet.

So for you out there PLEASE BE AWARE!

AND BEWARE OF THIS (KIND OF SCENARIO) from BayanTel.

Happiness and Perseverance

I remember this poem was given to me by Sr. Gilda Penafiel, RVM... She was my good friend ever since I stopped school in elementary, I was 11-y/o that time... And, we have constant communication by writing letters as in snail-mail... Internet that time was not common.

That poem was The definition of happiness... I memorize it by heart cause I posted this on my bedroom wall...

Now I'm creating it as a picture...
As this poem helps me, gave me perseverance to self-study in order to pass the acceleration test (PEPT - Philippine Examination Placement Test) from being elementary (grade 5) to be eligible for college (in any Public or Private University).

Also, gave me discipline to pursue whatever endeavour comes my way...
My boss once told me, that he sees himself in me being self reliant in studying and improving my knowledge in any new updates...

First Time To See Bangkerohan Bridge at Night

Today I had fun spending time at the Snyder's house... the main purpose I went there is to deliver my guitar because I sold it to them... yeah it's sad but I just need it to...

I'm thankful that it is on their hands, that Fender Guitar is very well taken cared:



So those pics are my remembrance on that guitar...

First Time Free Diving - Salaman Camp and Sea


First Time Always Last!

That statement above is kinda double meaning... but it will be explained in the photo that I made and posted here.

[WARNING: Do not read this very LONG post! You will not find any worth reading for your life, as this is just my recorded first time experiences, nothing interesting nor educational about this article. So GO ON and get busy with your life ok! (^_^)]

I never imagine that today will happen the most awaited moment I have been dreaming of, to swim in more than 10-ft deep, and to do "free diving". I also didn't know that our good friend Davey (husband of Phoebe a midwife from Mercy Clinic, she is from the UK, we met at the church) is like a dolphin (excellent swimmer)...

At first, Davey ask me to swim alone where I can still touch my feet at the bottom of the sea... since the swimming stroke I am confident with is freestyle so that is what I performed. He said that not all Filipinos he met while he was here in Philippines knows freestyle. Swimming lessons really helps! (^_^)

Davey taught me how to use the snorkel tube and learned to get used to it while swimming in less than 10mins. (I'm only using google (without nose cover), nose clip and that tube for snorkelling)...
And, he suggested that I can make it to that deeper part in the sea cause I'm a floater...
yeah! I actually want to experience swimming that far, but I'm afraid to swim that far now, cause it's has been a long time since I last swam 25-meters continuous freestyle...
Phoebe suggested well you don't need to really swim with an effort I think Davey can take you there just hold on to his back... and right away Davey agreed!

This was so exciting for me, so we are both kicking but both of my hands were holding on to Davey's back, I help with the kicking, then less than 1-min. we were in 20-ft. high and I saw a big black and white fish with fins like lion fish, man! that was awesome!!! it's my first time to really see something like that LIVE swimming below us, and we also saw that species Davey said that eats the corals, color orange with white polka dots and look like a huge snail without a shell, then all of the sudden I saw a yellow big fin! it was so huge and I was surprise it wasn't a fish but it was Ptr. Edging swimming in front of us (LOL) it was his flippers!

We talked a bit, Ptr. went back to shoreline and me and Davey decided to go much deeper, around 30-ft... I feel like flying now cause the corals are huge like mountains and with all the black school of fishes swimming along whew! COOL...

Then after awhile, Davey asked me to slowly let go, He is confident I can swim alone, at first I was quite afraid, and I remember what my swimming instructor told me "never entertain fear and stay relaxed as possible so you will stay floating above the water, streamline in water level, remember the first lesson, STREAMLINE FLOAT ABOVE THE WATER, neck straight looking downward, relax.." then little by little I didn't realize I was actually letting go of Davey, and he signed to me if I'm ok, I gave him two thumbs signal to reply "I'm ok!" and this time, I am actually swimming on my own, it was like flying seeing all those corals and fishes, and so relaxing.

After lunch, Davey showed me the much wonderful part of Salaman sea area, this time, he let me use a google from a snorkel (with the nose covered) and the tube with valve... He gave me an orientation for that snorkel, when I blow the water it went out down on that valve instead on top.

And, on that beautiful sea area the current was more stronger than where we explored in the morning, and the huge stones, lets me think of sea urchins! (they love the stones) I remembered when I was young, my grandparents house were near Pacific Ocean, me and my cousins will go out there for a swim and I often see red sea urchins ok that's another story so read it on that link (^_^)

To continue with free diving, yes we did saw a huge black sea urchins with very long spines, I can't believe my eyes, that was really tremendous! First time to see that kind of sea urchins!

We swam to up to more than 50 ft. deep, on that area I felt kinda lost actually, but I wasn't afraid, although there was a moment where I tried to explore swimming alone, and couldn't see Davey at all, and expecting to see a big fish! then again I wasn't scared as God is always with us.

I was mesmerize by the view, deep blue, mountain of corals, I can't view much of the sea bed anymore, there were all like mountains of corals below me, and all you can hear is the sound of the wave of the deep sea and my breathing at the snorkel, and I was relax...

Then I felt something, like my instinct is telling me something is coming up, I sense my jaw is hurting, I do want to dive deeper, but something is stopping me, I don't sense the peace, that still small voice is telling me to go back at the shoreline "always trust instinct!".

I still kept myself relax but my jaw was aching and the valve is gargling and I can't breath well in the tube, still I'm keeping it cool cause I trust God will keep my body floating, I tried to blow it out, but still the gargle was there, and when I inhale in my mouth I feel the water is inside the tube, I gave signal to Davey, he help me to keep my head up, (I can't still do the threading) he asked me what's wrong... I quickly removed my mouth piece to remove the water, then got it in again, suddenly my jaw felt cramps (that was the first time I experience that too! LOL)

Pain and numb feeling both sides of my jaw... so I went to hold Davey at his back and told him let's go home... I remove my mouth piece but I realize I can't do the swimming breathe (inhale at mouth, exhale at nose) without using the snorkel tube, because I was using a google with my nose covered (LOLz) and we are like in 60-ft. part of the sea... Now that gave me the shiver!
My heart was beating fast this time... I kept myself relax, so it won't feel like Davey is dragging me... And, I remember the meditation exercise of keeping yourself calm in order not to put pressure in the muscles (muscle pressure can remove the buoyancy of our body and sink us).

I did have my swimming google (without nose covered) around my neck but, somehow my instinct is telling me it will be more difficult to do the swimming breathes than using the snorkel... So I decided not to tell anything to Davey and to use the snorkel tube...

Again, I felt the presence of God telling me to relax so that my body will be much buoyant in floating and Davey will not have a hard time swimming too, I calmly just close my eyes and breathe through the tube even though it is still gargling, and just kick my legs for support to help us both with the strong current of the sea.

Anyway, I'm thankful for all these wonderful first time experiences, well this was one of the reason why I enrolled myself in swimming lessons, I never expected or even imagine that it will happen anytime soon.

God sent an angels to make one of my dream come true!
I haven't bought any snorkel set yet, but God is truly amazing He provides!

It's totally unexpected, and definitely NOT expecting at all that it will be Davey!
I thought before I might be able to go with Kuya Dick, cause I am aware he likes free diving... I didn't know that Davey loves it too.

Thank you Lord God for again making one of my dreams come true! You are always full of surprises (^_^)

Funny Videos That Are True In Christian Life

Ever since I feel its kinda awkward to take selfie and putting a Bible verse, then posting it on any social networking sites... I don't know why but somehow I just don't agree with that kind of idea... Now, fortunately here is the video that talks about it too in Top Christian Cliches (^_^) very funny!

Desiderata -Desired Things

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Analyzing Google Analytics

It is almost a month now that I'm studying Google Analytics, the NEW Google Analytics have evolved from (being just) tracking and analyzing websites to now tracking almost all kinds of digital devices - from websites to mobiles, tablets to kiosks... called UNIVERSAL ANALYTICS!

I'm done with the Google Tag Manager certification. And, still in the process of learning the E-commerce Analytics... and other courses.

After I familiarized the Digital Analytics Fundamentals, I thought that someday in the future the world war will no longer be tanks and guns with super nuclear bomb, it can be the war in the Internet... where IT people will be called as soldiers, those web developers and SEO Analyst can be called as special agents (soldiers) and maybe those who have worked with Google can be called as generals or in high ranks... (hmmm I said that to one of our chruchmates when we were inside the Taxi way back July 6th of this year)

These studies I am now going through are amazing... to learn how to analyze all those data that Google have gathered, and to predict "how people" will be attracted in your sites products, objectives and goals.

Now what is the connection on that picture I posted above?
Someone told me about this AI (Artificial Intelligence) movie titled "Ex Machina"...

Every Day is A New Beginning

Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)

22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.


"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I should be reminded of this...
not to hang-on to yesterday...

let go and move-on just like a snap!
and all the hurt disappeared when we clap!

Time heals,
and as time flies so fast,
so are the pain and wounds -> outcast!

Quotes Gathered From Internet

Here are some quotes that I have gathered on the Internet hopefully it will remind me over and over again (^_^)

Stop thinking, and end your problems. What difference between yes and no? What difference between success and failure? Must you value what others value, avoid what others avoid? How ridiculous! ~ Lao Tzu

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. ~ Peace Pilgrim

Forgiveness means that you fill yourself with love and you radiate that love outward and refuse to hang onto the venom or hatred that was engendered by the behaviors that caused the wounds. ~ Wayne Dyer

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things. ~ Albert Einstein

The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge. ~Einstein

If you look into my eyes
will you see my love for you?
If you look at my lips
will you know it's meant for you?

Everything happens for reasons...
Every moment has its own seasons...

The right time will come,
we will be together for eternity,
The right moment will come
our bond shall be filled with God's Blessings and Security.
