From Globe Telecom: Media Advisory on Text Scam - Please Share!

To all postpaid subscribers, you may now validate those unusual texts and calls. Read the media advisory below for more information. Globe Telecom advises its postpaid subscribers to take precaution and not fall victim to fraudulent text messages currently circulating. The text scam attracts people by informing them that they can get a discount or be entitled to a rebate on their monthly bill once they text a certain number. A sample message states: “GLOBE Postpaid: Congrats!You're the one selected postpaid plan given P150 discount billing, to get your P150 discount billing just text 150 send to 2916XXXXXXX.” By adding the number “2” before the 10-digit cell phone number of the recipient, the unsuspecting subscriber would have done a Share-A-Load transaction, thus the sum of 150 pesos would be transferred or credited to the sending prepaid number. Subscribers are requested to validate unusual texts and calls especially if they do not come from official four-digit Globe numbers. T

Google Analytics: Not Provided, Explained

When you logged in to your Google Analytics and checked on your data, you will always see this - "Not Provided" under Organic Search Traffic. So, are we losing so much data? Google counts the visit to organic search, definitely you will know if you have searched for a particular keyword without logging in to your Google Account. I know you will freak out if this is your first time to visit your Google Analytics account. My recommendation is to also visit your Google Webmaster Tools Data and compare the search terms you have for your site for the last 90 days. Or, custom filter the word "Not Provided" and allow only to see a different results using a separate Google Analytics Profile How To Turn (Not Provided) Into Useful, Actionable Data

Out of focus?

There were times that when heavy loads strikes you - emails, personal FB messages, Direct Twitter messages, SMS, calls and chats and you don't know how to focus and increase your productivity. Sometimes we  give up easily and walked around to think or stay out of focus (I usually step out of the building if I cannot concentrate with my work and buy some coffee or milktea, thanks to breaktime!). Upon reading this article today, the digital world is giving us too much constraint and we really hard to focus ( perfect example: which one to blog first, lol!). Quoting from David Work (HarperCollins, 2009) "Distractions signal that something has changed" ... A distraction is an alert says, ‘Orient your attention here now; this could be dangerous.’” How tiring it is to work on something really needs your brain to concentrate specially if you are a decision maker (like me, winks). What I did lately was to list down all pending things need to do and cross out when am done. I lo

Translacion 2013: Feast of the Black Nazarene Documented

Translacion , as described in the Spanish dictionary is about "moving something from one place to another" which a more appropriate word for the feast of Black Nazarene (oftentimes we used the term, procession) . As participants to this 'panata' which has been being transfer from our generation is really important because not only you will get involved in this ritual but also a profession of your faith. Through the Black Nazarene's translacion many people are returning a favor (if their wish has been granted), asking for forgiveness, healing and wishing for more blessings and guidance for the entire year. Our journey started at our meeting point in Isetann Recto, good thing that McDonald's fast food chain is open at that time so I decided to take a breakfast while waiting for my brother. After that, we headed towards Quezon Boulevard wherein the street is filled with people (of all ages) to attend the mass or waiting for the Black Nazarene to arrive. Busines

2013: Celebrating with Champagne and Fireworks

Where did you spent your New Year's Eve? While some went on different New Year countdown parties and concerts singing Auld Lang Syne (hehe) , others opted to stay home with their family. I had an amazing New Year celebration with the entire family at EDSA Shang Rila Hotel in Mandaluyong (a good reward for being such a hardworking person-thats me!) Because I don't want to have another allergy asthma attack during New Year because of heavy smoke outside the streets, I have decided to join Kuya Az, Ashton, Lace and the rest of the gang to welcome the New Year. Now, I have been thinking that I should list down my 'bucketlist of New Year Celebration' ... I am dreaming of celebrating New Year in different ways like like attending New Year Countdown concerts, at the beach, going out of country (Disneyland maybe) or pampering myself in Spa (crazy idea!). The weather is warm and sunny, so after checking in we took our lunch and enjoy the cool breeze of hotel's swimming po

Every year I am looking forward for a long weekend celebrations and good thing that I had more days off! Our Christmas is just simple, having good time together while enjoying the dinner. Christmas presents were at the living room, under the Christmas tree with colorful lights. I didn't have much time to shop and I wasn't able to list down my budget so what I did is to grab anything that I see at the store. Toys for kids, accessories for girls, unclaimed items for my brother LOL and so forth. Next time I think I need to take a day off and spend the rest of the days at the mall or trade fairs which I missed attending. I know that everyone had a fun, creative and festive celebration. Always remember that the essence of Christmas is how we spend our spare time with the people we  love, doesn't necessary meas
