Netflix bug: Updating payment method
Posted: 28 Jul 2022, 20:27pm - Thursday

I registered my Netflix in New Zealand. So, credit card and mobile number will be NZ. Now, I moved to Australia. I need to update the information. So, I updated my mobile number to Australia. But then, when I update my credit card, it's asking for confirmation code but the form is in NZ! Then keep saying "Something went wrong!" Of course because your form is wrong. Because your form is using NZ form for the mobile confirmation. So dumb!

Don't get me wrong! Both countries have confusing flags. But I do know the difference between the flags. :) Back to the topic. Now, how can update my credit card?

So I contacted Live Chat and their recommendation, deactivate my account! Nice!

Now I have to wait until 27 August 2022 so I can update my credit card. Great! Best system!

FaceApp, TikTok & COVID19 Vaccine
Posted: 13 Aug 2020, 4:48am - Thursday

Why is it western countries always try to nail down China and Russia?

When FaceApp become popular, Western countries then said its security concern. Russian government will steal your information etc.

When TikTok become popular, Western countries then said its security concern. The Chinese government will steal your information etc.

Yet google, facebook, instagram, twitter have all the information and CIA been mining the data for their own gain and nobody complains.

Now Russia have the COVID19 first vaccine, been all over the news that's it's not safe and so on. Why don't other countries help Russia instead?

Why can't we help each other? Is power and money always control us or our civilation?

Railway Hotel in Palmerston North, New Zeleand
Posted: 2 Feb 2013, 2:08am - Saturday

It's been two weeks now in Palmerston North. There's two accommodation that I choose, the Railway and @theHub. At the end, I chose to stay at Railway Hotel at 275 Main street. It is owned by Garry Young, a very good landlord... He always ask my comfort staying at his hotel/hostel/backpackers lodge. The room is excellent and I am satisfied what Garry offered me. He also include the WiFi internet for free of charge and with free car park. Unlike @theHub, their internet will cost you 27$ per week and the car park for 20$ per week. I will just share my experience looking for a place to stay with in Palmerston North. Monday, first prospect was @theHub introduced by my sister's friend and I booked the studio type 200$/week from their website. I visit the next @thHub to confirm if I could transfer on Saturday and they said, they will check the vacancy and the assigned staff that day showed me the room (rm 707 I think) and I saw the size, included furniture, bathroom, bed etc and the staff said its just 200$/week and 4 weeks bond which will cost $800 when I move in. So I came back again to @theHub after two days, they said their computer network is down, they cannot look up my bookings. So I came back again the next day, this droopy eyes staff said all he could offer is the 250$/week and 4 weeks bond (which will cost me 1000$ to move in) then I said if could I check the room. So this other big guy show me the room (703) and when I saw the room, its exactly the same the last room that I saw last few days ago and they said its 250$/week. Back in the reception area, I told them that if they could hold it for me because I'm contacting someone for my finances in my stay in Palmy which I've been contacting my sister if its okay to rent a studio type with a price of 250$/week. But my sister didn't reply and its Friday which I need to move on Saturday. A week before, my sister said they will visit me in Palmy to move me to a better place which I was currently staying at Pepper Tree backpackers. So Saturday morning, I told my sister that she will try to talk the receptionist without me if she can book and move as walk-in. Because I have this feeling this droopy eyes idiot staff @theHub is only good to females. So my sister and her friend talk to the receptionist, and guess what at the end of their negotiation, they offer to my sister that they could find a way that my sister and her friend could transfer or move right away to @theHub with a price of 200$/week! Fuck the @theHub accommodation staff and management! I said to my sister, this staff are shit! And I think they are racist too! So if you're a male Asian and attempt to book @theHub, don't bother to do it. You'll waste your time. They are morons! My verdict for @theHub, Female MANIAC! Next suspected accommodation is the Palmy 31. All I can say, its hard to book or talk to their staff. Their office hours is only 4PM to 5PM and if you are working from 8:30Am to 5AM, you can't catch this staff. When you called them, they will say to book online. And when you visit their website, there's a form but you cannot submit electronically. How dumb that website? They have to fill you up the form then print it and then fax it to them. That's their instruction! What kind of system was that? How hassle that could be for the people trying to book and visit the site. My verdict for this Palmy 31, dumb system! Lastly, Railway Hotel. I just visit the place and meet Garry, talk to him and show me the room, the laundry area, kitchen area and boom! He said, I could transfer right away and the transfer fee is only 2 weeks, the room is 195$/week with bathroom, and 6 weeks minimum stay which I will be staying in Palmy Nth for 3 months and its a good deal. The room includes; large LED HD TV, fridge, microwave, heater and furniture. So I took the room and staying in Railway Hotel comfortably. I am also walking distance to the Warehouse, New World, Asian store, fish & chips store and most of all, near enough to my work place. :) Railway Hotel website: http://www.railwayhotel.co.nz Contact Garry for your accommodation needs in Palmerston North.

Bayan ko walang pag-asa...
Posted: 21 Apr 2010, 21:55pm - Wednesday

Yesterday, I watch TV and shocked about the decision of the Judge (DOJ) that they release Ampatuan who brutally killed 57 people. Does the word "Justice" really work in our country? Well I guess this country is not an ideal one. I am tired of the political issues in this country. The word CORRUPT is all over the country. There's no such news that no corrupted city. Such president, GMA, cover everything up. She's smart, yet too obvious. So far so good, she made the freedom fighters sent to prison. In addition, such scheduled brown-outs. They say there's no water because El Niño. Do you really think its El Niño? If there's water, how can the water district supply water to us? As I remember, my last El Niño experience, even water supplies are scheduled for no water supply. Straight to the point, scheduled brown-outs are for messing the incoming 2010 election since we are using electronic voting system. And messing our electric bill so that the politicians behind the power supplies need money from the people. Such sudden increase of electric bill price is an obvious move. Well, there's nothing I can do about this country. This is how they make the Philippines go round. All I need is pray for my migration somewhere else and finally rest in peace. One thing, here at my birth city, its starting to create a bad crowd. You know what I mean... :) Whew! God help me go through that surrounds me... Please help me migrate away from this country. I believe, this country would be next to Haiti neither of these countries; Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Kiribati, Laos, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Niger, Rwanda, Samoa, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Sudan, East Timor, Togo, Tuvalu, Uganda, Tanzania, Vanuatu, Yemen, Zambia...

No hay palabra de honor
Posted: 23 Jan 2010, 9:05am - Saturday

When I watched TV last December 2009 (which I watch TV rarely), I saw the advertisement of the promised politician, Manny Villar. (which also I got irritated with his ads) And I said, *puff!* He really got a guts running for President after his controversial C5. Not to mention what he promised to me and my colleagues way back year 2005, under Mindanao Business and Management Youth Congress program. (see picture below) And until now his ads still air on ABS-CBN. And thinking that every ads in ABS-CBN cost hundreds of thousands. Yet he can afford to air his ads. Then I realized the C5 controversial, and said to myself... Now I get it why he got enough funds for his campaign. [caption id="attachment_337" align="aligncenter" width="540" caption="Manny Villar with MBMYC Staff"]Manny Villar with MBMYC Staff[/caption] The picture was a meeting with Manny Villar and the MBMYC Staff. Villar promised that he will finance a livelihood program and helping the poor in the remote areas in Cagayan de Oro City. He made a lot of promises that day. Yet he accomplished nothing. After the meeting, no funds has been sent to us. After that, I concluded that this politicians will do nothing for our country! Election 2010, I won't vote any president! They are all the same! Dick, Binay, Noynoy and Villar... Same feathers! And they flock together! Filipinos will always be hopeless with these kind of people! In addition, I was tagged in the facebook and laugh hard about it... And I think its true! Bwuahahahaha!

insult to Filipinos from Mr. Art Bell
Posted: 17 Apr 2008, 21:44pm - Thursday

Subject: HATE LETTER This is a very disturbing open E-mail letter  to all Filipinos around the world; specially here in North America !, from a man who has the power to reach million of people. (he's a radio talk host) Please read on.............. This is an open letter email by Art Bell, a radio talk show host in Nevada (more info in the email itself). Here is yet another person who has taken advantage of his power and priv ilege to use hateful words and racial stereotypes that breed further ignorance and intolerance in our society. Art Bell is a talk radio host who has two shows that he broadcasts from his home in Nevada , that is rebroadcast by 400 stations across the country. He's written 2 books. He lived in Okinawa , Japan for some years and had a radio program on the English station here. And, though it's hard to believe after reading the following letter from him, he actually has been to the Philippines (he's traveled fairly extensively around the world). Check out his website listed at the end to get a who's spreading this hateful ignorance. And letter is so degrading, I think it's really important that everybody read this and not attack him, but respond to him in a civilized manner because otherwise his thoughts will be reaffirmed. Understand that not everyone has a viewpoint like we do, and that this is an opinion of someone who hopefully can be changed only by civil actions. - May Munoz ............................................... Filipinos.....*make me puke* (Art Bell) As we've all come to notice, in the past few decades, Filipinos have begun to infest the United States like some sort of disease. Their extensive involvement in the U.S. Armed Forces is proof of the trashy kind of qualities all Filipinos tend to exhibit on a regular basis. You can see this clearly by studying the attitudes and cultural Icons of most Filipino Americans. Origins of Pinoys/Pinays: Are they really Asian? Well we've come to accept the fact the Filipinos come from a part of the world known as South East Asia . But the term ' Asia ' is used in the wrong way. You may notice that contemporary Filipino Americans try very hard to associ ate themselves with groups that we know as Asian. I cannot count the number of times I have seen a ' Third World ' Filipino try to connect themselves to the Chinese or Japanese people. There is no connection and here's why. The Philippines is a Third World country. Nothing respectable has EVER been created by Filipino people during our entire human history. Young Filipino men in America have become obsessed with 'import racing'. They have an enormously perverted affection for Japanese cars. It's a common phenomenon. In their minds, these Filipinos somehow believe that they are Asian and that it somehow connects them to Japanese people and Japanese cars. They often take credit for the ingenuity of Japanese people and say how it's an 'Asian thing'. This term...'Asian thing' derived directly from African American slang 'blackthang'. 'It's a black thang.' 'It's an asian thang.' You can see the connection. It's even funnier that, in Japan , Filipinos are heavily discriminated against. The only filipinos that can live successfully in Japan are the filipino prostitutes. But that's the case for most Filipino people no matter where they live in the world. Now we've come down to this fact...and it is a fact. Nothing in Filipino Culture can be seen as Asian. They have no architectural, artistic, or cultural influence which is in ANY way, asian. Thinking of the great countries in Asia such as Japan , Korea , and China there is no way you can possibly connect the Philippine Islands. This assault by filipino americans to connect themselves with the great peoples of North East Asia is foul and disgusting. Try visiting a young filipino's web site too. You'll see something called the 'Asian IRC Ring'. It has to do with the chatrooms. The most horrible thing about this is that these TRASHY people are trying to associate themselves with Asia again!! People in Asia don't act like, this at all. What we are seeing here is the natural Filipino in it's element with full access to technology and this is how they act! You will consistently see this behavior over and over again. Another interesting thing is that these 'thirdworld' people also frequent RC chatrooms such as #chinese #japan and #asian. They must believe that they are some how related racially or culturally to North Asians. But it's completely WRONG! There might have  been some distant contact With China and even less with Japan during World War II, butthese people are actually more closely related to african americans and Mexican americans. Do the parents of these young filipinos know what's going on? Would they accept this? I believe that they would and do. This is the natural 'Trash' element in filipinos manifesting itself. Nothing good has ever come from Philippines and I don't believe anything good ever will. Recognizing your Roots (A Message to Filipinos) To all filipino people: Please recognize your ROOTS! You come from the Third World ! You country is a disgusting and filthy place. Most people there live in poverty! Your culture has MUCH MORE SPANISH influence than chinese, and absolutely no JAPANESE influence whatsoever. People in Japan and China , do not act like you. They do not constantly talk about sex and they have a MUCH HIGHER level of RESPECT for each other. There is NO WAY that you can connect yourself to Asia other than location. Your culture and technological advancement does not even come CLOSE to What Chinese, people have done in the past and what Japanese and Korean people are doing now! Everything you do is distinctly filipino. You cannot take credit for Japanese cars, video games, or Hentai! It's not an 'asian thing' it's, an 'American thing'. You have no concept of culture...no concept of asian ideas or asian philosophy! Can you demonstrate how you use Confucianism or Taoism in you everyday life?? You can't. And you will NEVER be able to. I understand that you are trying to create an identity for yourselves as young people... but it is NOT related to Asia . Your Identity is Filipino. That's all you are. Just Filipino. Think about what that means.... Sincerely, Art ------------------------------------------ I find this funny, he is right in some ways where we, as Filipinos dont actually have an 'Identity'. I think this is due to the confusion of our mixed races from Hispanic, Chinese, American and Malay origins. I see it in malls, imagine young generations wearing ski caps and ski goggles in a tropical country, baggy low rise pants like that of African Americans living in th e Bronx of New York, not to mention endless whitening products being sold at department stores and drug stores. But his ignorance also blinds him from the other truth. That while we may glorify Anime shows and Japanese Internet gaming, he is not aware that a nameless Filipino may be responsible for some technical aspects of some Japanese software. He is not aware of our contribution to the the society in general .Technological advancements that may have aided post war navigations and landing on the moon. That the antibiotic Erythromycin was discovered by Dr. Abelardo Aguilar from Iloilo creating the brand 'Ilosone'. Thomas Edison may have discovered the electric light bulb and the fluorescent lighting was thought up by Nikola Tesla. But the fluorescent lamp we use today was invented by Agapito Flores (a Cebuano named Benigno Flores of Bantayan Island , according to the Philippine Daily inquirer), a Filipino scientist. Americans helped then-Philippine leader Ramon Magsaysay to develo p it for worldwide commerce.

That the personal physician of former U.S. Pres. Bill Clinton is Eleanor 'Connie' Concepcion Mariano, a Filipina doctor who was the youngest captain in the US Navy. A Filipino writer Jose Rizal could read and write at age 2, and grew up to speak more than 20 languages, including Latin,Greek, German, French and Chinese. Or that a Filipino genius was responsible for the near hiatus in the PENTAGON and White HOuse nearly infiltrating their closely guarded secrets with the 'ILOVEYOU' bug. Nuisance maybe, but still one heck of a 'beautiful mind'...not to be underestimated.The list goes on and on, but who cares right? Certainly not Mr. Art Bell...Boy, I'm not surprised. Perhaps Art Bell does not know that although we consider ourselves ASIAN because we are strategically located in the Southeast asian region of which our nearest neighbors are Malays, ASIA does not mean only Chinese and Japanese race of people. Then maybe it is his connotation that 'Asia' meant only our economically successful, paler brothers and he considers Malays such as Thais, Malaysians, Indonesians, and ourselves as a ' Third World ' race. Then it is 'his' ignonimity that would make a civilized person of whatever race puke. Imagine literally connecting Chinese, Koreans and Japanese to the Philippine Islands which is archipelagos away from the countries he has mentioned. I also wonder where he got the impression that we aspire to be Japanese(???) Hispanics maybe but not the Japanese. But even Hispanics today do not mind sharing their 'surnames' to their Asian brothers who they have colonized for 3 centuries. Another sad reality that although most Filipinos working overseas are domestic helpers and prostitutes, who does he think educates the toddlers of Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Tokyo? Parents of these countries rarely have time spent with their children, leaving them to their Filipino nannies. And with regards to prostitution. Filipinos are not the only ones working as one. I HARDLY SEE FILIPINOS STARRING IN PORN MOVIES. THERE MIGHT BE A FEW FILIPINOS WE HAVEN'T SEEN , BUT MOST ARE FROM MR. ART BELL'S RACE. He also mentioned that we have no concept of culture..no concept of asian ideas or asian philosophy. How can we demonstrate Confucianism or Taoism in a Christian nation? IS HE INFORMED THAT THE PHILIPPINES IS THE ONLY PREDOMINANTLY CHRISTIAN/CATHOLIC NATION IN ASIA ?! YOU HAVE TO USE COMMON SENSE IN A LOT OF THINGS SOMETIMES... We do not need to create an identity for ourselves. We are who we are. Our identity stems from the anonymity we live in this world. How we contribute silent ly towards the progress of the world and not just one country. Although the Filipino blood may be tainted with malice, corruption, poverty and prostitution, it is not a perfect race... But so are the others. Maybe Mr. Art Bell needs to think about this. WE MAY NOT BE PERFECT MR. BELL BUT AT LEAST WE STILL HAVE VALUES. FOR ONE THING WE DONT PUT OUR AGING PARENTS IN NURSING HOMES BECAUSE 'THEY'RE SIMPLY OLD AND WORTHLESS'. WE DONT HAVE AS MUCH NUMBERS OF SINGLE MOTHERS WHO GET PREGNANT IN THEIR VERY EARLY TEENS AND EVENTUALLY BECOME PARASITES OF THE GOVERNMENT FOR YEARS AND YEARS. YES...WE CAME TO YOUR COUNTRY TO WORK, TO EARN DECENT MONEY (HALF OF WHICH BY THE WAY GOES TO TAXES BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY SOCIAL PARASITES FROM YOUR RACE).AND BY THE WAY, MOST EDUCATED PEOPLE THAT I WORK WITH DONT COME FROM YOUR RACE... THEY'RE ACTUALLY IMMIGRANTS TOO. AND THOSE EDUCATED ONES DO NOT ACT LIKE YOU DO, PERHAPS BECAUSE THEY'VE REALLY BEEN WELL EDUCATED..AFTER ALL THAT'S SAID... WHO IS THE IGNORANT ONCE AGAIN?! - May Munoz

Corruption in the Philippines: How to eliminate!
Posted: 11 Aug 2021, 22:57pm - Wednesday

John shared this video to me:

YouTube

This is one of the reason I left from the Philippines. I would say, ALL government officials are corrupt. The future is so dark to become first world country category. Marcos did it but then the corrupt senators put him down and until now Philippines is crawling to poverty.

PH should have tougher punishment or laws, to eliminate these politicians or government officials, PH should execute corrupt people.

Should create a law of the following:

  1. Firing squad execution for severe corruption (over 5 million pesos)
  2. Minor corruption, imprisonment for life (between 1 and 5 million pesos)
  3. Any corrupt or have records cannot run or sit to any government position/role
  4. if the officer caught in corruption, all the family members and 1st degree of the family should be remove from office (if any) and cannot run or sit to any position/role in government

I bet if this will be the law, Philippines will improve significantly. If human rights bump in, come on! Philippines is over populated. Eradicating few evil people is good for the many.

I believe Duterte is trying to lift Philippines, but all the officials surrounds him are just all evil greed and corrupt.

PH: Message to the World!
Posted: 25 Aug 2016, 21:26pm - Thursday

http://dutertenews.com/photos-american-activists-rally-duterte-new-york/ A letter to my friends and family in the US and elsewhere: Thank you for the concern, but you're being misled. (Now, I really want to know who that Filipina is in this group. She looks like the odd person out in a sea of kids. Was she the organizer? Very interesting.) If the President is forcibly removed, please know that you will be doing our country more harm than good. Not only will you leave us a fragmented country, you will also leave us at the mercy of drug cartels which have run this country, and which are so powerful that they have on their payroll judges, politicians, and as investigations are being done now, allegedly the ex-Secretary of the Department of Justice (now Senator) herself. There is also a chance that Mindanao, the second largest archipelago, will secede, and all peace negotiations that have been started between the government and the Communists in our country (the longest insurgency ever), will be halted. There will be little pockets of rebellion, and you will be fomenting resentment for the US among our previously US-loving citizens. We've been staunchly pro US all these years. If you meddle, not a few Filipinos will suddenly find themselves sympathizing, justified or not, with the countries the US has invaded to "save"; to question the wisdom of forcing a foreigner's ethnocentric view on a sovereign state. You don't understand the depth of desperation until you've lived here. The things you hear in the news do not even scratch the surface. We are angry, desperate, and frustrated, and we hope you can see that. It will be back to Third World, most-corrupt-country-ever status for us. Forget about visiting this country too. Right now, there are improvements being done in our airports, only a few years ago considered the World's Worst. You dont want terrorists? Please leave our country alone. Drug money fuels terrorism, and we haven't had a President who could talk to the militants and the rebels like this one could. Some parts of Mindanao have become training ground for future ISIS rebels. To stop this President's war against drug lords and terrorists is to sign your agreement that more powerful terrorist organizations can come to poor, disorganized, US-hating Philippines to harvest more willing bodies. You don't know the scope. No news article has ever summed it up so you could understand the depth and breadth of the Philippines' problems. Please don't let yourselves be used by those who want to wrestle power away from the President of our country, the only man with cojones big enough to take on not just the ruling elite of the Philippines but also international drug cartels. The TL/DR version of why you're being manipulated is this: Rodrigo Roa Duterte was a mayor of Davao City for 20 years. He was forced to run for President by the Filipino people because the choices were dismal. Apart from an alleged corrupt vice president and a newbie senator, he ran against the anointed one named Mar Roxas, who was the previous administration's bet. While the previous administration has its fans, the overwhelming support for Duterte--91 percent--means most people are crying for change. You remember his predecessor? Benigno Aquino III was the President when Typhoon Haiyan happened. Do you remember asking where your donations went? Do you remember hostages from Hong Kong dying in that bus because of bungled operations? Or the news of our country's Special Action Forces dying in battle due to botched, ill-organized operations? That's not even half of it. If you don't know that, I'm sure you know how notorious Manila traffic is. The chief who handled that told us Filipinos not to worry because traffic isn't fatal anyway. (A Japanese firm did say that while we aren't dying, our economy is, as we lose about 3 billion dollars EVERY DAY in the gridlock.) You understand why people did not want Mar Roxas, who by the way, as the interior secretary, was "on top" of the failed Haiyan relief operations. When Duterte came into power, he sought to dismantle the organized crime and corruption that have been the most prominent features of this country. The Philippines is run on patronage politics, and because Duterte was not an insider--he was just a mayor of a far away city, after all--he stepped on as many toes as liberally and with as much impunity, shocking for toes that have never been stepped on. He went after the most untouchable of our leaders: generals, priests, mayors, cabinet secretaries. He also has a dirty mouth--but if you made us Filipinos choose between his dirty mouth, and his rivals' dirty hands, we'd let out a string of curses. And this is why you hear so much bad press about Duterte. Who was it that said, history is written by the victor? In our case, our story is being written by those who have the access and the resources to alter the truth. WHO STANDS TO GAIN MOST FROM DUTERTE BEING IMPEACHED? 91 percent of us can only hope to reach you this way. This guy is 71 years old. He has nothing to lose (except his life, which apparently does not bother him) and everything to gain. He is fighting for the legacy, the bragging rights to say, "I cleaned up the Philippines." What you see in the news, the killings on the streets, is not the handiwork of the government alone. As the President often says, what we're dealing with is not a crisis, but a war. And there will be blood. There is blood not just because of legal police apprehensions, but because the drug cartels are cleaning up after their own. Our policemen are not provided their own bullets--do you think at a salary of 300-400 usd a month, they can afford to go on a killing rampage? Someone is bankrolling it, and it's not the government. I agree that the President needs to make a tougher stand on the killings--he did condemn them but apparently not emphatically enough--and I agree that he needs to be harsher, but if those were his only shortcomings, to call for his impeachment, when he has done so much for the ordinary Filipino, is taking it too far. Here's something to think about: While we are a poor country, Filipinos are known to be a strong, united people. We are not ignorant, we are not stupid, we are highly literate. We have unhampered access to social media, we have scholars and students everywhere. The only times we ever needed saving are the times when our leaders couldnt do it for us, like Haiyan. Since 1986, when we successfully ousted the dictator Ferdinand Marcos in EDSA 1, the Filipino has believed in his freedom and his capacity to change the government. Our bloodless revolutions have become iconic. We ousted one more President after: Joseph Estrada, for charges of graft and corruption on EDSA 2. We also sent one President, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, to "jail." EDSA is a symbol of our freedom and our capacity to THINK FOR OURSELVES. We are highly capable of OUSTING LEADERS we do not want. So if we wanted to oust Duterte, we would be VERY CAPABLE to do it on our own. And it would be hell of a lot easier too. We would have disgruntled oligarchs on our side, and I am sure the drug cartels would even happily fund those who are corrupt in our military to stage coup d' etats. BUT WE DONT. SO MANY OF US DONT! 91 percent of us dont! Because we understand our own internal struggles more than any of you do. To meddle in our affairs is akin to saying you do not trust us to govern for ourselves, which smacks so hard of colonialism. Please, thank you for your concern, and for the aid, but allow us to build our nation the way we think best. There are dissenters,some trolls, but others very brilliant, in our midst. We have oppositions in both Houses, in the Senate and Congress. There is an ongoing Senate hearing on the killings, led quite ironically, by the woman charged of coddling drug protectors herself. WE DO NOT LACK FOR DISSENT. PEOPLE ARE NOT DYING HERE FOR ATTACKING DUTERTE. There is NO dictatorship. The original plan is to impeach Duterte, but because they could not find the support from the Filipino public--actually the opposition is very much reviled in this country, to put it mildly--the threat is to have Duterte dragged to the International Crimes Court. And you have become unwitting characters in a stage that has been set to make this happen. YOU ARE BEING USED IN AN ELABORATE POWER PLAY AND YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW IT. When and if we are ready to oust Duterte, you will hear about it. As I've said, we can do it on our own. But until then, please respect, please, please LISTEN to the voices of the majority of the Filipino people. Thank you!   --Krizette Laureta Chu

DUMP/JUNK/TRASH SOPA/PROTECT-IP
Posted: 19 Jan 2012, 3:12am - Thursday

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo. Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! - fightforthefuture.org/pipa PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement." The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill. According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights. Biden on Internet Freedom = Anti-SOPA from Fight for the Future on Vimeo. americancensorship.org Joe Biden filled in for Hillary Clinton at the London Conference on Cyberspace (LCC) on November 1st, giving a speech on the importance of freedom in cyberspace and talking up the importance of freedom on the internet and not regulating the internet. Meanwhile, the Obama Administration stands with congress in full support of H.R 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act, which would give copyright holders the ability to censor websites on the net. We need to stand up now and let Congress know that they shouldn't mess with the Internet!

Do you really think Earthquake, Tidal Waves and other Natural Disaster are really natural event? Like Haite Earthquake, Phuket Thailand Tsunami and Chile Earthquake... For my analysis, these are man made events. It's a test causing Earthquake, Tidal Waves and other Natural Disaster. This is another mass destruction weapon of U.S. Government. It might be the HARP project nor other Top Secret project. Yet, I don't know how to prove it cause I'm just a low life human being... :P

Attacks in Mindanao
Posted: 10 Jul 2009, 8:30am - Friday

soldierSince I'm young, I always experience about bombing here and there anywhere in Mindanao. After many-many years, I realized that its all a play. A way of having more money to come for the politicians.

  1. Bombing of Maria Christina Bridge in Iligan City (April 20, 2009) - It seems the election is so near, all bombs away where the money comes. I think 64M has been released for the repair. And many months later from the released date, there no repair happened. Again, its a play to get the money from above.
  2. Bombing of Sabayle Street, Iligan City (July 6, 2009 -- includes also other places in Mindanao) - I think it all about the charter change. Since they want to change the constitution, they want to declare martial law by using the terrorist act and somehow, they were the terrorist.
As my conclusion to these events, Mindanao is the source of their money. Not to mention all the illegal drugs, firearms and etc are came from Mindanao and somehow protected by the highest position in this country. In short, Mindanao is the lab rats!

Never fly with Jetstar!
Posted: 27 Aug 2020, 23:36pm - Thursday

I booked a flight with Jetstar recently worth $700+. Covid19 hit in Auckland and lockdown to level 3. Jetstar announced that all flights are cancelled. So I ask for refund, they only refund as voucher with a one year expiration. But I rarely fly? Why can't I get my money back!!?

They been air by FairGo but still they insist that they can only give voucher.

I find their resolution bullshit! So don't fly with Jetstar! Lame service! Better fly with Air New Zealand.

Being Human (TV Series)
Posted: 21 Sep 2013, 5:19am - Saturday

Being-Human-001I love TV series and movies and this will be my first time to comment negatively. So, I've been watching this TV series, BEING HUMAN. Sad to say, its the most stupid plot. The characters' behavior are inconsistent. I really regret buying the Blue-Ray - The Complete Series (Series 1 to 4)  of Being Human. The story sucks. George scream or shouts like a gay. I guess the creator and writer Toby Whithouse really have unstable plots of his story. Totally, I don't recommend this TV series. I find this TV series sucks. Verdict: -Z (Awful)

My co-worker sent me a link and found it very true of most of the employers in Online Jobs. They maltreated Filipinoes as their virtual assistant, they want to do everything and finish it in a day or hour or a second. And I found it as stupidity tasks coz we are not Superman! I would like to re-post this good article by John Jonas.


When it comes to outsourcing your business (or yourself!) to the Philippines, there’s definitely a learning curve. Here are 7 ways you can guarantee failure for yourself : (Hint: Don’t do these things!)

1. Try To Hire Someone To Do Everything

Here’s an actual email I got this week So wait…you want a programmer, graphic designer, webmaster, who is fluent in english and likes to write, who can write sales copy, autoresponders, forum posts, ebooks, and reports. Oh yeah, sure, let me help you find that person! Oh wait, that person doesn’t exist. Hire someone to do a specific task! Then train them to be able to do everything.

2. Hire A Project Manager

Filipinos don’t know how to run your business for you. Don’t try to hire a project manager first along with 6 others, and expect that “project manager” to manage those other 6 and get things done. They don’t know how. YES! They’re very capable of being project managers, but very rarely will you find someone who has been involved in enough internet business that you can just turn a project over to them and have them manage other people for you. Eventually…yes! After you’ve trained them and they’ve seen how the business is supposed to work.

3. Hire Someone And Ignore Them

You have to train the person you hire. They don’t know how to run your super-niche internet marketing business. Don’t expect to hire someone and just let them go do everything themselves. Expect to spend some time working with them.

4. Ask Someone To Do Work Before You Offer Them A Job

This is my favorite. I get an email that says
Can you please tell me why I can’t successfully hire someone, they all keep disappearing. Here’s the email I send them: I want you to start by doing a trial task. Write 20 articles, submit them to article directories, do a bunch of directory submissions for me, build me a website and write all the content for it. Then, I’ll evaluate your work and see if it’s going to work out.
hahahahaha. Yeah right! They’re not going to do work until AFTER they know they have a full-time job working for you. Don’t give them a test task. Give them a job. Tell them the first month is a probationary period.

5. Expect Immediate Results

This is a long-term proposal here. I’ve been doing it for 4 years. You’re not going to see the same results in 4 days. Don’t expect it.

6. Search and Search and Search For The Right Person, Then Email Them

Hey John, I searched for 3 days and I found the perfect candidate. They can do everything you said wasn’t possible back up in #1 on this blog post. Why won’t they respond to me?
Why? Because they already have a job and they’re loyal to their current employer. Instead of trying to find the perfect person up front, try contacting 20 potential fits, see who responds, then sort through them.

7. Set The Wrong Expectations

When you hire them, don’t tell them you expect them to be totally self-directed and to work without supervision and to be able to figure everything out on their own. If you do, you’ll never hear from them again. Try telling them
I expect you to try to figure things out, but I understand that I’m going to give you tasks that you won’t know how to do, and sometimes there won’t be any way to figure it out. In these cases, please know that I’m here to answer your questions. I’m here to help you. Please don’t hesitate to ask me when you get stuck.
Otherwise, when they don’t know how to do something they get embarrassed and will never talk to you again. If you set the right expectation with them about asking for help, they’ll ask, you’ll help, and all will be happy and good. These aren’t hard things to avoid…you just have to know about them to avoid them. There’s more good stuff like this as a member of ReplaceMyself.com.

Everyday Brown-out ordered by Politicians from Above
Posted: 3 Mar 2010, 10:22am - Wednesday

This scheduled brown-out in Iligan City and all over the Philippines, does really about El Niño? I don't think so! Let me reveal the truth to you. One of the employee from NAPOCOR I talked to and he said, "It is an order from above... It's not El Niño. There are enough water to supply the turbine of NAPOCOR. I think this is political strategy." See folks, do not believe in the TV news or newspaper saying that its about El Niño! Fuck them! For my analysis, this is just a strategy to take down the Election 2010. Or let's just say someone really want to cheat or desperate to win for power and greed. Well, if GMA fuck up FPJ... Then she can do it again to let her presidential bet win. I believe Philippines will just be a junkyard in the future. Just like Somalia nor Niger. There's no hope for these people. Everybody is running for the money... For their glorified greed! *sigh!* God help us! Let the Philippine islands sink to the bottom of the sea, just like Atlantis!

Thief Globe Telecom
Posted: 27 Dec 2008, 0:55am - Saturday

Last December 24 and 25, 2008, I loaded twice with 100 Pesos and register twice for SULITXT 15 but they still deduct every text messages I sent. It is so unfair for every subscriber because we are paying as what they ask for but in return, they don't even do good to their services. I think they have to rehabilitate their system. I've been using Globe since 2001 with my first Nokia 7110 mobile phone. So If this blog will be read by the Globe staff, hope they will take action of this case. And I think I'm not the only experiencing this problem they have. It really sucks!
