Sun Cellular, The Good Choice in Postpaid

Its amusing to see how technology is affecting the lives of each of us, even changing our definitions of "necessity". Gone are the times when computers, and cellphones were mere expressions of luxury. Nowadays, if you wanted to keep up with the modern pace, you needed to be just a phone call away.

Even cellphone use had its own evolution, do you remember the time when SIM cards cost one thousand effin pesos? hahah. Now they peddle it on streets like peanuts. Calls used to cost us a fortune but now telecom companies are competing to have the best unlimited package in the market.

Papa Ray has been a loyal Sun Cellular postpaid subscriber since 2007, and for the budget conscious, Sun  has been consistent key player in providing affordable quality service. In fact, the Sun offers are really attractive that I was convinced to get a prepaid account. My favorite service is the Sun Powertext where you get Unlimited text, 4 hours of calls, and 500 texts to other networks for only p200 a month. I swear super sulit.

For postpaid users, they provide a wide range of combo's for all types of communication needs, whether you're a hardcore texter, someone who makes lots of calls, or does alot of mobile browsing. The plan 699 is best for the average consumer, while plan 999 is a great deal for those who are looking for unlimited mobile data, added with unlimited texting to Sun subscribers. For each plan, you get to choose the type of usage scheme, either go for unlimited call or text, or go for a fully consumable plan.

PLAN 699
Call & Text Unlimited
  • Unlimited Calls & Texts*
  • P250 Consumable** (except International/Domestic Operator-assisted calls)

  • Sun - to - Sun MMS
  • SMS2Email

PLAN 999
Text Unlimited

  • Unlimited Mobile Internet

They also offer the free handsets. Not only do they have great talk and text service offers, they also throw in really cool gadgets in the pack. Featured right now are the latest releases from Alcatel, with specsheets matching the high end phones of today.

Most of our relatives in Cebu use Sun Cellular, so we get to make the most out of all the unlimited services. Ray is even able to hold conference calls with relatives, with up to 6 people at a time, for family discussions, and still the call quality is superb. Now that's what you call bang for the buck!

We think it's really cool how telecom companies come up with great deals to outshine each other and the happiest of them all are us consumers. For those who are seeking to have a great postpaid deal, check out Sun Cellular roster of services at www.suncellular.com.ph

"Your Life, Your Call"

While not exactly a summer song, this is a chill-good-vibes track from a band called Junip. Perfect for long drives.

"Put yourself together, draw the line..."

I find it very fitting for the thought that has been playing in my head the whole weekend:
"Be yourself. The people who matter don't mind and the people who mind don't matter."

It can be easy to get carried away by peer pressure. I say FTW. :p

And when things get too irritating, i just remember the message from one of my favorite paintings from the Bencab museum:
bencab painting
"Wag mo damdamin ang mga bagay dahil ang mga bagay ay walang damdamin"

In a nutshell: Don't take anything too personally. And it's easier said than done. If this was so easy none of us would be so stressed at the end of the day. Bwehehe.

I still abide by my mantra: Live and let live. People are their own selves. Walang basagan ng trip.

Enjoying my first summer-weekend so far. An avalanche of need-to-dos are flooding my head. Excited. :D

Silence is Detoxfying

I'm here at the Engineering library to work on a term paper. Students may stick their tongue at me but there's something so refreshing about working in the library for one whole day. I think it's the SILENCE.

For someone working at a manufacturing plant, working means alternating between staying in an office area of 300+ people all buzzing around like bees, and standing in the midst of 500+ machines all wire-bonding nonstop round the clock. You get used to noise. You get used to the fact that you need to think while someone is shouting, and you consider machines as mere white noise. You master the art of willing these sounds to fade into the background. You don't really have personal space aside from the 30 square inches of your office cube. Some don't even have that luxury.

In contrast -  a library. Ahhh. It's Saturday now and there are very few students. I'm hearing nothing but the low hum of the airconditioner. In front of me is a view of trees behind the building. I'm alone in a desk surrounded by books, books, and more books. My mind feels like flying into a vast space of thought and imagination. And hence, this blog.

The library feels very detoxifying.

I need to catch my head though before I get too far, I got a paper to write. And I'm still trying to find the coefficient of thermal expansion of abaca fiber. Bleh.

It's my last requirement for the last lecture subject of my masters degree. Dang it feels surreal.
I still have my thesis to work on, but yuhoo, thank God for helping me get this far. Konti nalang. :)

Have a good day!

What The Blind Man Sees

We only needed to walk a couple of meters to get into the house. It was a simple bungalow with a mini sari-sari store by the entrance. The sala welcomed us with a charcoal portrait of the charming king and queen of the Segismar clan.

Lola welcomed us with a warm tight hug, just like she did last year. They have been waiting for us since early afternoon however a couple of unexpected events prevented us from getting there as early as we would've wanted. But we were there, and I've been eager to meet the man whom I've heard a lot from. I didn't know what to expect but I looked forward to it.

Lolo is 83 and could no longer walk around like Lola does. He sat at one corner of the receiving room. I approached him and gave him a hug as Ray introduced us. He held my hand as his eyes looked straight ahead for he could no longer see. He lamented that he could no longer see my face, so I joked that at least my voice was beautiful enough.

From then on he did not let go of my hand. He started with "kanus-a mo mag-minyo?" (When will you get married?), followed by nervous laughter from me and Ray. He then sat up straight and reached his other arm to his grandson and said "Ang importante sa tanan, magka-sinabot mo" (Most important of all, is that you understand each other).
