Blogging Again

It's been a while since I have been here. I remember the times when I squeezed out my brain or let my heart out for some poetry and posted stuff here. I guess I kinda stopped as time passed by.

Blogging is a good stress reliever. Let everything out: Your joys, your sorrows, frustrations highs and lows. And after writing all of the stuff, suddenly you'll feel good.

Blogging isn't just for getting money from ads, or to let people know what's on your mind. Simply putting into words your thoughts and feelings into a blog is enough :)

I may be posting more stuff soon as I would visit this more often

Wireless Broadband Internet...

While I was at Somerset Olympia I tried connecting to the net via Wireless broadband as free Wi-fi only is at the lobby and the cost to have it enabled in your room is impractical. Since I was at the heart of Makati's Commercial Business District I was sure that I could get a strong signal regardless of the building network traffic due to the new year.

I started with Smart Bro.... It was a complete failure. I wasn't even able to connect to the server. Well I was able to get a signal and was able to connect earlier, but could not connect to any site nor log on to basic messenger services

Then due to my frustration I used Globe Tattoo with Prepaid Sim inserted.

It was good the first few minutes as I got a modest transmit/receive speed

And then...

I decided to borrow my Sister's Sun Wireless Broadband Prepaid and Got the Best Results :)

Well my sister was about to use it as well so what I did ultimately was to Use Globe Tattoo with my Postpaid Sim

Sometimes, It's best to go Postpaid (hehe)
