Last night, during the “Thor: The Dark World” movie screening by Nuffnang & Globe Telecom at Resorts World, my family and I went to Stackers Burger Cafe to have a quick dinner.
Naturally, since they had a photo-heavy menu, our orders were based on the images of the food shown on it.
Friends and family know that I’m not that hard to please (or satisfy). I’d like to believe that I’m very forgiving and reasonable. But I found it VERY difficult to comprehend how something I picked from the menu that looked like this…
Maring. This is probably what corrupt politicians want… a diversion from the PDAF scandal. Also because us Filipinos, tend to be forgetful (and forgiving) of grave offenses – to a fault.
Billions of pesos could have truly made flood control a reality in all parts of the Philippines years ago. Food for the needy. Casualties prevented.
Warmth. Shelter. Provisions.
Remember the real issue here. After this calamity, NEVER EVER FORGET.
Lest we all look like fools again and history repeats itself.
Just last week I posted an open letter to SkyCable… remember?
A couple of days after that, they sent an engineering team to check my connection problems. Considering how many times they’ve already sent service teams to our place to tend to my internet concerns, I was very doubtful they’d be able to resolve my broadband woes.
They naturally did the routine checkup… speedtest and all. I repeatedly told them that speedtest wasn’t the problem. In fact, my speedtest results to SkyCable’s server was perfect – Ping: 15ms, Down:5.7Mbps, Up: 0.97Mbps. It was connecting to international sites that I had a problem with for the longest time.
I can only conclude that the main problem is coming from SkyCable’s end. They can call it whatever they want… the bottom-line for me is that I cannot get any work done because of their repeated unfulfilled responsibilities as my internet provider.
I can only tolerate their misgivings so much. I have already come to a point wherein even constant bill readjustments on their part aren’t enough anymore. I cannot finish my work. Worse, I am LOSING work as well! All thanks to SkyCable’s inept service.
Metro Manila. Instant traffic. Just add water.
With much frustration and seemingly futile hope, I am now posting my open letter to SkyCable.
Seriously, out of the entire duration I’ve been subscribed to SkyCable’s broadband service, more than half of that time has been problematic due to intermittent and unreliable service.
For example, a little rain in our area and our connection goes down. It has become so unreliable that their broadband is predictably f*cked up every single time the weather gets bad or after a power outage.

So the saying goes.
Unfortunately, for quite a number of Digitel employees, losing that ability to fish will soon become a bitter reality. It seems that because of the corporation’s merger with PLDT, more than half of their people will be losing their jobs – all thanks to what PLDT head honchos consider to be a case of “redundancy”.
