BPI international debit cards no longer let’s you withdraw cash without…

Without activating it first in the Philippines or without calling them in their international toll-free number or hotline. I didn’t know when this restriction started, but a few years ago you can instantly withdraw funds in your savings account without calling BPI to activate your card for international withdrawal when you’re in a foreign country (outside the Philippines). That’s why there’s this “international” text in the your BPI debit card right below the BPI Express Teller logo and a Cirrus logo to show that you can withdraw in any international ATM with Cirrus logo.

But now, they made it more INCONVENIENT. Before leaving the Philippines you should call their hotline or visit your branch to activate your card for international withdrawal. Yay! Thank you BPI for the inconvenience!

Is Animoji an innovation?


Yes it is. It is awesome and it’s fun. Even if Devin Coldewey of Techcrunch said that it’s dumb and he detest it, it’s not. It’s actually one of the best innovations this 2017, according to me a whole lot of my friends in Seattle and Singapore.

And $1000 for a phone is not that expensive. It’s actually pretty cheap if you sum up the years of innovation and the long sleepless nights of the hardware & software nerds, and those geniuses who have a lot of prefixes and suffixes in their names, who made it possible to be put in your pocket. That small, but powerful device with that so-called neural engine that comes with your phone, for $1000.00, it’s a steal.

You cannot make a phone that sophisticated for $1000 all by yourself, can you? So please stop bashing iPhone haters. It’s the best iPhone yet.

Anyway, Animojis are awesome and I love animoji and I’m excited to pre-order it this October and receive it by November this year! And oh, the girl animoji model (pictured above) in the iPhone X page at Apple.com is pretty, I love you girl, whoever you are!

The INTCoin Scam


Be careful of INTcoin, as it’s an absolute scam. People who invested in INTcoin’s ICO a few months ago lost all their money. It’s a brilliantly orchestrated scam that lured newbie and some veteran investors. It was featured in CoinTelegraph, The Bitcoin News, Cryptocoin News, News BTC, The Bitcoin Wire, and Bitcoin Wiki. All of these news sites are reputable cryptocurrency news sources, but they do accept sponsored post, and scam artists behind INTcoin sponsored a post on these sites to lure investors to their ICO.

It’s also mentioned in CNBC!!! Hahahaha! A known investor Timothy Enneking was also scammed, because according to him (as what I’ve read in CNBC), he invested during the INTcoin ICO. Be very careful as it’s also related to Intellicoin, another scam coin that is listed in some exchanges like Bittrex.

Just be very careful everyone. A lot of ICO and cryptocurrency scams are popping up out everywhere in this very very dangerous world.

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!

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.

PayPal: We’re sorry,but we can’t send your payment right now.


We’re sorry,but we can’t send your payment right now. This annoying PayPal message has annoyed thousands of loyal PayPal customers already. This occurred around 4th quarter of 2016. It’s a security feature of PayPal for accounts with good standing, because they want to protect you! Yes you! and me of course. So if you cannot send any amount using your current PayPal funds, then fear not. You can still use your funds by asking the recipient to send a money request or create a PayPal invoice.

Keeping the Show in Progress with High-Performance Parts

The show must go on, or so the saying goes. But how can you keep the show on track when you cannot move the background and electronic equipment onto the stage? When your background props, speakers, lights, costume racks, and more are too heavy for one or two people to lift by themselves, you must rely on carts, tables, gurneys, and more to move it for you. But what happens when parts like the rollers, theater casters, bars, and more wear out, leaving you without the equipment you need to make moving important gear easier? You can find the parts to make necessary repairs when you shop online today.

Built for Endurance and Weight
Background props and sound equipment are heavier than they look. They may look whimsical and light; however, they are made out of solid materials like wood and rubber that make them cumbersome to lift. Rather than strain your back and possibly hurt yourself, you can make moving them easier with tables, carts, and more. You can keep the fixtures moving around well by making sure they are outfitted with high-quality casters.
