"Awesome" BayanTel's Customer Service and Support, long gone?

I have been a subscriber of BayanTel since 2003, at that time I only got their landline subscription until 2008 I decided to avail their DSL bundle. Everything was promising, I had an awesome speed connection which catered my entertainment needs in terms of gaming, movie and music downloads.

But like any dream, I was visited by a terrible nightmare which came to life that a customer would like to be awakened of - BayanTel's service and support sucks. Last year, a week doesn't pass by without calling their technical support and all with the same problems - no internet and/or intermittent connection, no dial tone. They replaced my ZTE modem with an older looking version. It looks really old but it worked so it was fine with me so the BayanTel agents were spared by my rants and I got spared from their spiels and customized templates.

Until today, I had the same effin problem AGAIN. Before, whenever I had issues, a day won't pass by and my issue is quickly resolved. The technician will contact me for confirmation that he passed by the house and fixed it and this genuine awesome customer service is long gone.

CashCashPinoy Payments via 7-11 and Valentine's Deals

Group discount sites are a craze nowadays since it gives more value to your money. I personally have made several purchases via Metrodeal and Pakyaw, so far my experiences with them are positive. In my quest of discovering more awesome groupon sites, I finally gave CashCashPinoy a chance. I've seen several banners in 7-11 stores near our office advertising that CashCashPinoy payments can be done at their establishment. So, I asked my good friend (who I can say is expert in terms of group discount sites, you can check out her blog heresome feedback and so far they have only pissed her off once.

Most of the groupon sites have 2-3 payment methods: Paypal, Credit Card, and bank deposit. I believe having the users pay over the counter via 7-11 which is available 24/7 makes CashCashPinoy stand out from its competitors. So, I gave CashCashPinoy a chance and made a purchase and chose payment via 7-11. Once you chose this payment, you have 2 days to make the payment to close the deal.

Geeky Earrings: Piranha Plants

I love earrings specially dangling and those geeky earrings that has a game theme. One awesome lady created Piranha Plant earrings made of polymer clay. If you're an avid fan of Super Mario, the Piranha plants are familiar to you for sure. They may look like they are chomping on your ear lobes but there's a metal post hidden in their mouths.

Central BBQ Boy Grill: All that Nom Nom Nom Part 2

After our adventure at Zark's Burger, we went to Central BBQ Boy Grill at Malugay St to meet our other friends. If you plan to go there, it's behind Cash & Carry (Filmore St.). I've been to Central Boy a couple of times and for me their cocktails are good as well as the place. Their Malugay branch is bigger compared to their branch in Mayapis, which can also be found at Makati. The crowd is merely composed of yuppies who are in the mood of good and clean fun. Like any typical bars, Central Boy have bouncers so no messing around, folks.

Central at 8:30pm - The party has not started yet
Once you get hold of their menu, first thing you'd notice is the humor they added when they named their food and drinks (check out the bottom of the post for details). Since we were still full, I decided to get their combo (Php 699) - 3 cocktails + 2 pulutan (a choice of Nachos + Hotdog or Flaming Tuna + Barbeque). So let me start showing you their Pulutans :D

Flaming Tuna ni Boy will surely get your attention. Tuna chunks in a sizzling plate which will be served to you while it's still flaming. The tuna is well cooked and there's no malansa after taste. You can even pair this with rice if you're up for it.

Flame on!

Zark's Burger: All that Nom Nom Nom! Part 1

It's been a long time since I had dinner with my good old friends Bully, Rizza, Dennis, Dianne. Since I promised them that we will meet up after my birthday, we decided to do it before Valentine's. So last Saturday, we decided to hit Zark's Burger at 2F Archer’s Nook, Taft Ave. It's just in front of La Salle and if you see Yellow Cab and Army Navy in the establishment then you're in the right place.

Since it will be long night of munching and fun, I decided to have Jawbreaker (Php 250). This beauty is composed of triple cheeseburger with Spam, bacon itsy bitsy of lettuce and tomato. I just wished that the bacon was crispy but nonetheless, it's a good choice for bacon and spam lovers out there. Finish this in 5 minutes and it's free. They will be having an ongoing promo this Feb. 6 and 11th. The Jawbreaker will be Php 150 from Php 250.

Spam and Bacon - What more can you ask for?
