Sense 8 a Netflix Series


Just like what I have said before, I used to watch foreign TV series rather than Pinoy Telenovela. For now, I just want to share another series that caught my attention. It was entitled Sense 8, a Netflix Original series.

This series is about eight strangers with different cultures from different part of the world known to be “Sensates”
 
The sensates suddenly experience a vision of a woman named Angelica who had a violent death by killing herself with a gun. The cluster of sensates are Capheus, Sun, Nomi, Kala, Riley, Wolfgang, Lito and Will.

Each of them has the ability of mental and emotional connections which enables them to communicate with each other including their skills, knowledge, and language.

Capheus or also known as “Van Damme” is a matatu driver from Nairobi. He was called as Van Damme because he is a big fan of the Jean-Claude Van Damme. He wants to earn more money to help his mother buy AIDS medicine.

Sun is a daughter of one of the well-known businessman in Seoul. She is also a star in underground kickboxing. She was imprisoned by admitting the anomaly that happened in their company.

Nomi is a transwoman from San Francisco with a girlfriend named Amanita. She was a blogger and a hacker. Nomi stands for “Know Me”.

Kala is a pharmacist from Mumbai. She was engaged to Rajan whom she does not love.

Riley is lives in London. She works as a DJ who wanted escape her past in Iceland.

Aside from the sensates, there is another person who has the ability like them named Jonas. He is protecting the sensates from the so-called “Whispers”, who leads an organization that wanted to kill the eight individual by connecting into their psychic link.

How will they protect each other from Whispers? Will they actually meet in person or thru their psychic link only?

The Healing Galing Experience


I kept on promoting the Healing Galing products here on my site as an alternative way to cure illnesses. Unknowingly, I will have, my father rather, will be one of the patients through this alternative medicine.

To begin the story, Papa took a week-long vacation at home since our house help left us.

He got a fever the following day. According to Mama, he worked under the rain before going to Bulacan. I gave him paracetamol. Along with the fever, he also got a cough.

After a week of stay at home, he went home because of Nanay, my grandmother, switched as Matthew’s yaya for a while.

Then I receive a call from Mama that Papa’s cough is getting worse. His body weight has dropped. At first, we thought that this is because of his being diabetic

I asked her to bring Papa to a doctor for a check-up. The doctor advised having an x-ray because his cough is already more than a week. The result showed that there is a is a “hilar mass” in his right lung and to have a better diagnostic, he was recommended to have CT-Scan and biopsy and look for a pulmonologist.

I brought Mama and Papa here in Bulacan and seek for a pulmonologist where we got the same recommendation of having a CT-Scan.

The CT-Scan showed that the hilar mass is already about 7 cm and swollen lymph near the heart area were also observed.

I brought back the result to the doctor for interpretation. Just like the first doctor in Nueva Ecija, a biopsy is recommended to determine the status of the hilar mass if it is cancerous of not.

Furthermore, according to the pulmonologist, if the mass is cancerous, with that size, it is already on the 3rd stage.

Papa also sent sputum samples in the laboratory to determine if he has a TB. The result was negative.

We keep these findings from Papa baka kasi mas lumala kapag nalaman nya. We asked him if he is willing to undergo the biopsy but he refused for the fear that this might trigger the cells and may create more problem.

So we suggest trying an alternative thru Healing Galing.

Since there is a nearby branch in Nueva Ecija (San Jose City) and the consultation is free, they visited the place showing the laboratory test results.

Papa was given medication like Calcutab, organic vitamins B1, B6 and B12, Serpentina tablet, and the Healing Oil. He was also given Rhizome Pills because he has signs of having high uric acid.

Aside from the medications, there are also some instructions on the foods to avoid and some lung exercise.

On the first week of medication, Papa started to throw phlegm as he coughs. Then after few days, he started to take out lumps of blood and experience severe pain in his chest area. This gave them scare so I told them to contact Ma'am Cherry, the Naturopathic Practitioner.

According to Ma’am Chery, there is nothing to be scared because the medications were starting to take effect. The lumps or mass in his lung is already starting to expell. His cough will not stop until his lung is cleared.

Papa is already thinking that his condition is already on the severe stage and he may die soon. We just encourage him them to have a positive attitude and he will get better soon.

Papa was also given Tawa-Tawa Tonic to drink after releasing blood.

After more than a month of treatment, the cough is already gone. The medication continues for almost six months now and we are just waiting if Papa is allowed to undergo another X-ray. We are hoping that the results will be clear.

I was happy that because of this experience, there are many friends that started to believe in Naturopathy. Aside from the so-called holistic approach in natural medicine, having Faith in HIM will also help in getting better.

Do you also have experience in Naturopathy?

Switching to Globe DSL


I have been using my current internet service provider for more than 5 years now. However, I made my decision to change it. Sabi nga nila Walang Forever.

I switched to a DSL since according to most reviews, it is better compared to a wireless connection.

A couple of weeks ago, while cleaning the car, there is an agent from Globe offering a slot for a DSL in our area. May isa pa daw na line and open for applicants. I asked the offer and sounds good naman. However, I haven’t committed since I need to cut my current plan.

Globe DSL

After requesting for the cancellation of my subscription, I called the agent and asked if there is still available slot if I am going to apply for DSL installation. Luckily, a slot is still available so I grabbed the opportunity to ask for a reservation.

The transaction became smooth. I just gave my personal profile and commit that the installation will be made the following day. However, the installation did not proceed since they have a prior commitment to another customer.

I was advised that the installation will be the following day na lang.  Sayang lang kasi I need to left the office earlier tapos hindi din pala maikakabit that day.

Anyways, bumawi naman sila, they are earlier than expected the following day. In less than an hour, the installation is done.

I choose the Globe Broadband Plan 1299 which comes with up to 10Mbps connection speed and 100GB monthly data allocation.

The plan is bundled with a landline with unlimited calls to Globe and Touch Mobile numbers, a standard subscription to HOOQ, NETFLIX and NBA for 6 months.

During the installation, I made a cash out of 1299 as an advance payment but this will be deducted from the first monthly bill.

Speed test

As of now, the browsing speed is faster compared to my previous ISP. Although the said up to 10Mbps speed is not yet attained, it is much faster compared to my previous connection.

What ISP do you have at home?

When the "SUN" Sets


Two weeks ago, while driving on my way home, a message popped on my phone saying that my SIM was not recognized by the network. I pulled over the checked what happened to my phone.

My “almost” 10-year-old Sun SIM has finally given up. I tried some troubleshooting steps hoping to fix the problem.


Reboot the phone.Nothing happened.
Since my phone is a dual sim, I tried placing the SIM card into the other slot. Wala.
Change the network setting. Wala pa din.

I just focused myself on driving and listen to acoustic music that sounds great with M F orange crush amp until I reached home. I placed the SIM card into three difference phones but none gave a positive response.

Then I called the customer service to ask help about the problem. The same steps above were asked by the customer representative for me .to do. Again, not successful.

I was advised to go to the nearest Sun Cell shop to seek help. Upon seeing my SIM the initial reaction of the customer service representative was “Ay, prepaid pala.!”

The same troubleshooting steps were made and as expected, the SIM is not recovered.

I was told that since my phone is a prepaid, all I need is to buy a new SIM. They do not have any access daw with prepaid subscribers.

I asked if they can give me a sim replacement having the same number.

I know in some network provider, for instance, SMART, you can ask for a SIM replacement using the same number. However, this method is only applicable to SUN postpaid only.

What did I learn from this?

Always have backup storage for contacts.
All of my contacts were saved on the SIM. Now, all of my contacts were erased and will not be recovered. Saving all your contacts in phone device or have is sync in your email account will do a great work in case you will encounter the same trouble as mine.

Never used Sun Cellular SIM as recovery phone on your e-mails.
This is applicable with prepaid lang naman. All of my emails were linked to my Sun number. Buti na lang I haven’t log-out on my computer except for the company email assigned to me.

Now I cannot access my company email. Though I am still logged on my phone, yun na lang muna ginagamit ko. But this gives me a hassle. I need to download or forward the important files to my other email first before downloading on my computer.

Do not use Sun number as you contact info on bank and credit cards.
Again this is applicable to prepaid. My bank accounts, as well as credit cards, were using the SUN number as my contacts. Now, I need to call or visit the bank to update my contact information. Daming hassle di ba?

I am not saying that SUN is not a good choice. Actually, my new SIM is still with the said network. I am just sharing my experience.

Do you experience the same as I with Sun or other network?

My 2016 DIY Projects


I was supposed to share how our December 2016 was but Mommy had already shared how we spend the Christmas and New Year 2017. Instead, I just want to share what made me busy during the Holiday Season break.

Aside from the painting job I made at home, there are some DIY projects I finished just before the year 2016 ends.

First is the TV Rack. I used plyboard painted using the Davies Aqua Gloss It paint, mounted on the wall and fixed the wall bracket. The TV looks bigger as well as the living room.

The TV mounted on the wall
I just bought a speaker with a subwoofer which I will use when watching movies. The two satellite speakers were also mounted on the wall (not yet in the photo) while the subwoofer unit was placed on below the TV.  For a larger home entertainment sound system, guitarcenter.com has monitor stands to hold satellite speakers.

Second is the kitchen organizer rack. This is made from scrap woods. I used popsicle sticks as railings to prevent what is placed from falling.

Kitchen Rack Organizer

The third DIY is the wine/liquor rack and wine glass holder. Same with the kitchen racks, scrap woods were used in this item. Papa helped me in the finishing the wine glass holder.

Wine Rack and Wine Glass Holder
There are still some things to be done at home like the cabinet doors in the kitchen, painting of  bedrooms and comfort rooms as well as the exterior of the entire house. Wheeew!

By the way, with all of these, do you think I deserve this Holiday Gift?

Trax Orbitrac
I'll share my review on this soon.

That's all for now.

What made you busy during the holiday season?
