Visited Brazil and Malta this 2017

I didn’t notice that I haven’t posted any updates for the past few months. I had a long vacation, and I visited two countries last March, April, and May 2017. I’ve been to Rio de Janeiro and Malta. Went with my friends to visit random cities that I’ve never visited before. Will be blogging again now because I missed blogging so much.

I also got a notification in my WordPress app that I got a lot of visitors last week. I was surprised that it’s about BPI express online error. An old post that received a thousand visitors in a few hours. Hahaha!

Anyway, that would be all for now.

Brand New iPad Mini 2 32GB at Lazada with passcode

If you bought a “brand new” iPad at Lazada.com.ph, specifically the “Apple Ipad Mini 2 Retina 32GB Wifi (White)/Silver” on sale for 11,499.00 and after you open it, it has a pass code, return it immediately. It isn’t brand new. It’s just resealed and it has a previous owner. Brand new iPads will never ever have a pass code by default.

Don’t attempt to unlock it or reset it via iTunes Recovery Mode, because you won’t be able to. It’s blocked and it will be locked forever, unless the previous owner unlocked it. Just return it to Lazada within 7 days after you purchased the item.

If you’re unlucky and 7 days have passed, then you’ll be stuck with that unusable iPad. You can’t resell it because it won’t be used by anyone, anymore.

Lucky for me I was able to return the iPad with passcode. It’s best to open it immediately while the Lazada delivery guy is at your doorstep, then return it on the same day if it has a passcode by default.

Kimstore: they neither confirm nor deny

So what really happened with Kimstore? Are you curious? Because I am. Yuga already posted a comprehensive story behind what really happened with Kimstore, bombarded with mixed comments from Kimstore supporters and haters. Kimstore just ignored what happened last month. They neither confirmed nor denied the incident. If you neither confirm nor deny a certain incident, there’s a high probability (and in most cases, it’s a proof) that you’re guilty.

Anyway they are now back in business. Let’s shop at Kimstore and enjoy our savings rack up!

Kimstore Raid conspiracy theories


Ok, so first and foremost, I know you’ve heard or read the news about Kimstore last Monday, when their warehouse was raided by the BOC. Some pretty little bird gave a tip to the BOC that Kimstore is smuggling a lot of stuff, the stuff that they sell online. This news has been trending in Twitter and other social media platforms since February 1. And until now, February 3, 2017, there’s no official statement yet from Kimstore regarding this incident, according to the latest post I’ve read about it online while writing this post.

Smart Bro IPs blocked in PayPal.com

If you’re using Smart Bro, chances are you’re also blocked from accessing Paypal.com. Don’t worry, you are not alone. My Smart mobile wifi is blocked as well. Paypal seems to blocked a wide range of Smart IPs. I suggest that you use another ISP or a VPN, when accessing Paypal.

This happened since March 2015. A lot of Smart IP addresses were blocked from PayPal. And lately, last December 2016, more Smart Broadband IPs were blocked by PayPal. It’s safe to assume that it’s an automated block.

Sparc 4K LED TV Philippines Review: Reasons to NOT buy it!


This is a very short review of the unknown Sparc LED TV. I owned one (I bought it from Lazada last December 2016), and now it’s broken. There are no Sparc service centers the in Metro Manila and the whole Philippines, not even China, where it was made. You only have 7 days to return it to Lazada it case it’s not working anymore. So after 7 days, there’s no way to replace your super cheap TV.

A lot bought this TV from Lazada a month ago. Even my friends was lured to buy it because it’s unbelievably cheap. It’s like a disposable TV, for 5,999, you’ll get a 32″ LED TV and for only 19,999, you can buy the Sparc 55″ 4K LED TV! It’s insanely cheap right? 55″ 4K TVs are priced around 70,000 to 200,000 pesos. Too good to be true? You can actually buy one here. It’s for real and it’s insanely cheap.

BryanVeloso.com is now Mobile Friendly and AMPed!

Yes, you read it right! This blog is now 100% mobile friendly. Let’s just wait for Google to automatically crawl this blog and let the majestic bots notice that I’m now mobile friendly. And oh, this blog is also AMPed! It loads on mobile really fast, like, so fast, you can’t even blink your eyes!

Last June, I posted that my blog is not mobile friendly. And just today, I posted that I installed the AMP plugin. And now, I’m blogging again because I feel like I need to blog, even though nobody reads this blog, except for Cora’s fans your read my posts about Cora. But that’s it, and nothing more.

Should I post more about Cora? I think it’s enough, and I don’t want to divulge any more dark secrets between me and her. I’m just happy that she’s quite famous now and she’s living her dreams as a celebrity and model.

Happy holidays everyone! Will post another blog post if I’m in the mood to post.

PayPal automatically converts USD to your local currency starting November 2016

If you’re surprised that you suddenly received Pesos (or your local currency) for PayPal funds that you usually receive in US dollars, then don’t be. Because just recently, this month, PayPal automatically converts USD to your local currency. It’s their “new feature”.

Don’t be pissed off if you are expecting US dollars from your friends and family, then you receive it in PHP. Because that’s how it works. However, you can still receive your funds in USD, if you ask your friends/family to send funds using the Goods and Services method (even if you didn’t sell or rendered any service to your friends. Haha). In this way, you can still receive US dollars, with a fee.

Too bad, everything now is with a fee. PayPal is awesome! So let’s not complain for this change, because it’s inevitable.
