Due to the recent typhoon that hit the Philippines and Hong Kong, Internet connection provided by PLDT and ICT Solutions will have an affected service in the next several weeks because of several damaged undersea cables that connect customers to service providers for internet connection.
Globe Telecoms on the other hand is not affected for they were able to reroute their services through other submarine cables and assets spread throughout the country.
According to news reports ICT Solutions said that the repair will take about 4 to 6 weeks depending on the success and efficiency of their plans and keep their customers connected.
Jeepney Driver’s will ask you an additional 50 cents for your regular Jeep fare tomorrow because the government agency in charge of regulating our public utility vehicles has approved the jeepney drivers’ petition on Friday, 30th June to increase the fare by that much for the first four kilometers. Here’s what will change:
The Transport hike, which was approved on May 30th, is in effect in the following regions:
National Capital Region (Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Manila, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, Pateros, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, and Valenzuela); Region 3 (Provinces of Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac, and Zambales), and Region 4A & 4B (Provinces of Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Lucena, Quezon, and Rizal; Marinduque, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Palawan, Puerto Princesa, and Romblon)
Note: To take effect, Jeepney Drivers must display Fare Matrix inside their jeep. No Fare Matrix, no right to ask fare increase (photocopy of fare matrix is allowed).
Consumers can report their complaints with the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) online or calling their numbers in these offices:
Finally! Epson made the Black Color 73N Ink Cartridges available for TX110 printer owners like me. We know how most printers work and they won’t produce any output if you lack one cartridge. The black printer cassettes were delivered last Saturday (June 7th) but my friends at Silicon Valley at the Forum Robinsons Mall said only 20 were delivered. So after that, no word if it was going to be replenished. I bought two.
Those should last me about three months of four but as my observations tell me, it won’t last that long because these vials aren’t made like they used to. According to my observations, these ink containers used to last four months of printing black documents but now you’d be lucky to get two months out of these.
If you’re like me and would like to bring this issue up with Epson Philippines, you can contact them here.
This example is not like what I experienced because this video is not Toy Kingdom, however, having seen this post on Facebook proves what sales representatives are doing nowadays to make that sale no matter what — even to the detriment of the customer — they will continue doing it and it should stop.
This is my story and it happened in Toy Kingdom.
It was Wednesday, 28th May when I ventured in SM Megamall’s Toy Kingdom in Building A or the one that is right across the Fastfood Area at the basement level.
Holding a PhP300 toy train for my eldest son, a salesman for a competing brand came up to me and blurted out, “Sir! Pangit yan.” referring to the toy I was holding. “Wala yan sir. Walang kuwenta yan.” (That toy has no value, sir. It doesn’t amount to any thing.)
The toy I’m holding has no value and the impression he gave me is that I don’t — in effect — value my son’s happiness because of a 300 peso toy train. What a father am I huh?
I obliged to see what wants to show me and showed this colorful toy train that is structured like a roller coaster. Nice indeed but it’s not within my budget but now how can I go back to the train I still want to give my son that he already labeled, “Walang kuwenta!” I’m almost embarrassed to move or to even pick up the box I want.
I ended up leaving the store without the toy for my kid.
Toy Kingdom Megamall is beautiful but the sales tactics of representatives who want to make a sale…boy, that’s UGLY! Change that please.
I don’t mean to single out Toy Kingdom because you can see from the video that this kind of up-selling strategy is demeaning and provocative that will not bring out the value of what they’re selling.
