Kinidnap sina Ces Drilon

Kinidnap ang nawawalang ABS-CBN newscaster na si Ces Drilon at ang kanyang mga kasama, ayon sa opisyal na pahayag ng network: “ABS-CBN News journalists Ces Drilon, Jimmy Encarnacion, and Angelo Valderama have been kidnapped for ransom.”

Ginagawa na raw ng ABS-CBN News ang lahat upang matulungan ang mga pamilya ng mga mamamahayag na nakidnap. Pero, susundin daw ng ABS-CBN News ang policy nito na hindi pagbabayad ng ransom upang di na lalong lumakas ang loob ng mga kidnapper na mangidnap ng iba pang mga mamamahayag.

Ang Pinoy, kapag nabastos…

Kilala tayong mga Pinoy dahil sa pagiging maasikaso sa mga bisitang dayuhan. Pero paano kapag ang dayuhan ang iba ang trato sa atin sa mismong bayan natin? Siyempre nakakapikon. Ganyan ang reaction ng mga taga-PinoyExchange sa kuwento ng isang PExer ang nagrereklamong sinungitan daw ng isang Italyanong restaurant owner sa Boracay.

Kung gusto ninyong basahin, narito ang discussion thread sa PinoyExchange. Salamat kay aajao, na nagbahagi ng link.

Blogger na rin si Among Ed

Blogger na rin si Father Ed Panlilio, ang gobernador ng Pampanga. Mababasa ninyo siya sa www.amonged.org/blog.

Kahapon, kasama kami ni Mhay sa lakad ng Bloggers’ Kapihan at mga kapwa bloggers sa Pampanga para sa paglulunsad ng blog ni Among Ed. Nagagalak ako’t nakita at nakausap namin siya nang personal. Natutuwa rin ako’t nakakuwentuhan namin nina Mhay at Jon ang ilang mga kabataang lider at estudyante ng Pampanga.

Sa susunod na update ay isasama ko ang mga larawang kuha noong blog launch.

SEAOIL fixes gas price at P53.50 a liter through prepaid card

This is a paid advertisement.

SEAOIL Philippines Inc., the largest independent retailer of petroleum products in the country, has introduced an industry-first prepaid card that pegs a customer’s gasoline purchase at P53.50 per liter.

Company officials explained that the Price Lock Prepaid Fuel Card can be used to buy 20 liters of gasoline (G5 X-treme and Unleaded) from any SEAOIL participating stations. The selling period is from June 10-22, 2008. Each card costs P1,070 and is valid for 10 weeks (June 10 up to August 22, 2008).

Since the price has been fixed, cardholders will have an easier time budgeting their fuel expenses as they will be insulated from further spikes in gasoline costs during the promo period.

In the less likely event of a price rollback also during the period, i.e. the price goes down to less than P53.50 a liter, SEAOIL will refund unused (unscratched) fuel prepaid cards.

Makapigil-hininga

Nahihirapan na naman akong huminga nitong mga nakalipas na araw. Parang mababaw ang hinga ko — di nakakarating sa baga o puso ang hangin — kaya’t kailangang hugutin maya’t maya.

Nang huling magkaganito ako nang medyo matindi, sumugod kami ni Mhay sa St. Luke’s at nilagyan pa ako ng oxygen tank, pero matapos ma-check up ay nakauwi rin agad. Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease ang sabi, o baka yung condition that could lead to GERD naman.

Bayan DSL's free speed upgrade

I was on my way to the bank this morning when I saw BayanDSL’s banner saying something like “1,286 kbps for as low as 899”. This got me curious because my plan, which costs P1,200 (899 for the DSL and 300 for the phone line), only gives me a maximum of 700+ kbps even with the speed-on-demand promo. I called their sales hotline in the afternoon and asked if the offer is only for new customers. I was told it’s also available for existing subscribers and I must call their customer service. The CS rep just verified my details and told me he’ll upgrade my account, and the changes would take effect within 24 hours.

Here are the readings I got when I checked my Internet speed as soon as I got home tonight:

8-7000 Jollibee delivery

April 28 ,2009 update: Nagpapa-deliver na ulit kami sa Jollibee. Ilang buwan matapos kong isulat ang entry na ito, umayos na ang services nila. Mas ok na ang phone line, at kadalasan ay on-time na ang delivery. Nang minsang magka-problema ako sa delayed delivery, naging mahusay ang pag-aasikaso ng mga taga-National Bookstore/Quezon Ave branch sa akin. Nung nagkamali ako ng address na ibinigay, matiyaga nilang hinanap ang sa amin, kahit nagpabalik-balik ang rider. Bati na kami ni Jollibee, at nai-enjoy ko na ulit ang Jollibee Regular Yum with Cheese na may hot sauce. 🙂

Hiniram mula sa official Jollibee websiteHindi na muna ako magpapa-deliver sa 8-7000 Jollibee delivery.

Ito’y kahit

Noong Biyernes, hindi ako nakasali sa Yahoo Messenger conference ng Bloggers’ Kapihan dahil nagkaproblema — gaya nang dati — ang delivery ng inorder kong pagkain sa Jollibee.
