Globe WiMax Product Review

This post is so out of place here. This blog is about the things that I love to do. I really want to keep it at a positive aura. But not today. All thanks to our epic fail ISP: Globe WiMax. Now, I guess I would be in a hiatus here in my blog. Internet connection is so bad. Very bad!

As of this moment, I’m writing this in an internet cafĂ© because we don’t have internet connection at home for more three weeks and counting! Gosh! I am about to burst out my wits to madness! How will I keep this blog up and running?

So let me tell you the story of how we got Globe WiMax. My family and I really regret the decision we made seven months ago.

A Globe salesman offered us the product at a certain discount and free installation. Of course, since it was cheaper than our previous ISP, we accepted the offer. And then all hell started! The installation was free, but we had to wait for five weeks for the technician to come to our house and wire it. During those five weeks we had to constantly follow up Globe sales but all they tell us is it is already being processed.

So once we had this fail ISP installed, I was happy that I could finally surf and be updated online. But crap! The 1 mbps promise was just lip service! Internet is so slow! Turtle speed even! Oh! I’m sorry I didn’t read it correctly! Globe said “UP TO 1 mbps”. What a safe statement, but please, at least give us 80% to 90% of what you have promised!

Even technicians confirm that the signal here in our area is weak! You know this got me thinking, for sure Globe knows which areas have good or bad signal. What frustrates me more is that their salesmen still continue to sell the product in areas where bad signal is located. Where is the common sense of these people? Don’t offer the product if it does not work, got it? Don’t fool people just to make a sale! 

The service is intermittent and changes in the weather affect the signal so badly. Yeah I know all about the technicalities of that now. A lot of technicians have come to fix the antenna every after rainy days or windy days. This problem is always happening during the past seven months.  With the unfortunate twist of fate, the southwest monsoon brought bad weather for the past few weeks, so Globe Wi-Max does not give us internet connection for three weeks and counting!

We call in a lot of times but the call center agents always say the same scripts: Globe is currently fixing the cell site/ Globe is continually improving its services/ Yadaa yadaa… Different agents answer the call but they say the same thing.

I have observed how fancy their advertisements are. Don’t buy globe! Even if you like their endorsers such as Georgina Wilson, Danica Magpantay, Alodia Gosiengfiao, Sarah Geronimo, Vice Ganda, or any other celebrity. If only Globe is wise enough to use the money for their endorsers to fund for a better service!

Greatness does not start with Globe!

The only thing worth resisting here is subscribing to Globe! 

My way? I just want to terminate Globe! But they won't allow it!
My message is clear:  DO NOT BELIEVE ANY CRAP GLOBE TELLS YOU!)

And the worst part is… Globe won't give in to our request of terminating the service because we are still in the lock-in period.  The termination fee is PhP7,000. That means six more excruciating months with Globe!  Geez… how dare these Globe people steal money from our pockets in exchange for crappy service!  Argh! I hate Globe so much I want to change my number! I guess it won’t be long now. I don’t want any Globe products in my house!

Globe is a total waste of money! I repeat: DON'T BUY IT! You will just regret it. Globe Wi-Max: This is one product I would LOVE to HATE!

DSL connection is the best and more stable. We have pldtmydsl (wired), so I bought a router to get wifi around the house. A bit pricey unlike globe but it's stable and rarely has connection problems. Been using it for 5 years.

Hi The Chosen One! Yup, I've learned that the hard way. When it comes to home connections, wired ones are the best choice. We switched to a different ISP now. Still more pricey than globe but it's better. Thanks for dropping by :)

Hi there! I think it will all depend on the area talaga. Thank you for the suggestion. As of now, I'm still on the hunt for the best ISP here in my area :)

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
