Lenovo Bundle from Globe

Went to Globe today, wanting to get plan 499 with the Cloudfone+Cloudpad package. It turns out it's sold out everywhere... o_o

A quick search on the internet yields no good review about the Cloudfone+Cloudpad package though, so I guess it wasn't really a loss. >_>

I didn't really care much whether the Bundle was available or not however, because I wasn't planning on using the devices myself. :P I had promised my elementary-aged nephew that I will get him a tablet for his birthday. What better way to get it than free? Yes. I'm a cheapskate. Hoho. ^^ Anyway, Plan 499 was being offered but they had no devices available to I got the next, higher plan instead (that's Plan 999)... And I got some pretty decent devices if I might say! :)

The process went really smooth and I got my devices within the hour. That's really amusing as I was applying for ANOTHER line and my current line is just Plan 299. o3o I got approved without any fuss for Plan 999. Not bad, Globe. Looks like I'll be sticking with you for another two years.



My nephew won't be getting this tab, though. My mom, who went with me, wanted the tab for herself and she said she'll buy my nephew a cheap one. Haha. Poor guy. XD

Edit:
The tab is really great except for the fact that it doesn't have a back camera. That's not a deal-breaker for me though, because I personally think it's stupid taking pictures with such big devices (I'd rather use my phone, or better yet, my camera). I kinda want it for myself now, but I doubt my mom will give it up. Haha.

I'll be giving my dad the Dual-Sim Lenovo phone for his birthday on November 2 as well... So I won't be keeping any device huh... Just paying every month. Waa! Haha.

Edit: The Dual-Phone sim accepted a Sun prepaid sim and a Smart prepaid sim. It's not sim-locked! That's great because it would be so useless to get a dual-sim phone if you will use the same network. Hehe. :P

Well, that's it for now. See you soon!

P.S.
If you want me to do reviews of the devices, let me know! ^^

Splash Mountain Resort

This year, sadly, I wasn't able to go to the beach for my birthday. :( It's sad for me because it has been some kind of tradition. And I LOVE spending my birthdays on the beach.

However, this year also became special because I got to meet my old friends, Pauline and Joy. I haven't seen joy for seven years!

It all started as an impulsive thought. In the beginning of October, I didn't even have any plans for my birthday, I didn't intend to go anywhere. Then, Pauline messaged me about wanting to meet up for my birthday, and I suddenly suggested an outing. Since my birthday is in two weeks, we didn't really have a lot of money to spare, let alone, holidays to spend. It was impromptu! Joy was able to secure a couple of days leave, luckily! My other high school friends, however, were not able to. :( Ah well... There's always next time! ^^

I really, really wanted to go to Puerto Galera, but due to money constraints, we settled for Laguna.

Excuse me for looking like shit. lol

Splash Mountain Hotel Entrance. I think my caption is unnecessary. lol

Lunch that day, was, well, not really special. Haha. We went to SM Calamba for lunch since the hotel's food were pretty darn expensive and we were all broke. lol

But you know... Anything can look special in the right angle. *wink*






Doesn't look so bad now, huh? Hahaha 

Of course we had ice cream! *wince*

Then we saw a Havaianas activity and tried it out, because we are little kids. :P
Pauline was very busy. lol
  
Joy was even busier. lol

Can you spot my name? Haha

Now we will go back to the hotel and photospam you. Sorry. Here we go!

This here is the Clover Pool. We actually have 3 circular pools here that form a clover. Each of the pool are variations of 3 feet high. Does that sentence make sense? lol

This pool is a little deeper at around 4-4.5 feet.

My friends enjoying the pool!

During high season, aka summer, they have this bar open. Isn't it cool? They have a bar on the pool! They also have giant waterslides and a lazy pool, but they aren't open when we went there. It was in another area of the resort too. :(

A few other people came by afternoon to swim as well... But it's as good as deserted because there are several pools. lol

Because there isn't any sand, I wrote our names by wetting the stones with pool water. I'm that creative. lol

A view from the resort, you can see some houses on a hill/mountain!

Just playing with the camera here. Notice all the empty umbrella tables. This will cost you Php400 a day. There are other options too. A gazebo is about Php 2500 I think.

The room was not up to my standards, it was worn out and dull... There were no free toiletries except for two little bars of soap. But at least we had an inner pool. ^^
They will turn on the jets for you at Php350 an hour. I think that's terrible. Shouldn't it be for free? :|


We did decide to take advantage of it during the night though. lol My shiny forehead.

The rest of the night was spent playing cards and talking about high school. Ah, the nostalgia.^^

It was a pretty short trip because we all had to go home the next day. ; 3 ; Before leaving though, I decided to take a bit more snaps.


This is the Splash Hotel. There are two other more expensive hotels in the resort.

And then, it was time for goodbye. :( It was such a short, short trip! I hope next time we can spend a longer time with each other! I enjoyed my friends company more than the resort though, to be honest. The Hotel won Best Resort in Laguna 5 or 6 years ago... Nothing more recent. I can see why!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to enjoying this year and having lots more fun! ^^

See you next time!

Divisoria

Many people are curious about what Divisoria is like--the shopping haven for students, teenagers, moms, dads, your yaya, your dog, YES EVERYBODY. However, it's hard to know what it's like if you haven't been there. The internet is not so useful either because well, I don't think a lot of people brave to take out their phones/cameras out while in there.

BUT I DID!

Just for you! lol

Here are some snaps:

I'm sure cat lovers would want this. ^^

Hello Kitty everywhere!

Mini-vanity for all you girly-girls out there.

So many stalls and people shopping! It wasn't so crowded when we visited because it was a weekday and we got there early. ^^

Christmas starts quite early in the Ph. lol

Koji-san asked me to take this picture. lol
He's an accessories vendor we met on the streets. ^^

I'm just going to leave this picture of ice cream cake bars here.

Total yums. Gotta try it! We found it at 168 Mall food court. Not expensive either! I think it was about 39 pesos?

Cute accessories. ; 3 ;

I wasn't able to take lots of pictures because shop attendants kept telling me I'm not allowed to do it. Maybe only if I shop with them will they allow me. Haha. ; 3 ; I did manage to take more than just snaps though. I also made a mini Divi video for you guys to enjoy. Here you go!



Sorry it's super shaky and short. lol I will try harder next time! XD

Have you guys ever been to Divisoria? What did you guys buy? <3

Thanks for reading my blog, as always.

P.S.
Oooh. I just noticed I reached 20k views! Thank you guys!<3
