Worst Customer Service in the World Goes to Food Panda!


Earlier today, I ordered 4 brewed Iced Tea (the good old Libertea) from Army Navy. After waiting for an hour, my order finally arrived. To my surprise, it’s not what I ordered. They sent me 4 Milktea with Pearls instead of the Libertea Iced Tea that I ordered.

I then reported it to Food Panda customer support. I showed them the picture via chat and they told me that it says Libertea in the bottle, so I received the correct item. I insisted that it’s not correct and Army Navy is using the SAME bottle for both Libertea Brewed Iced Tea and Libertea Milktea with Pearls. They told me that someone will call me to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

An Indian Customer Agent with a weird accent I can’t clearly comprehend called using the number +1 287-066-3630. Asked some questions to verify my account details, then informed me that they know that I received an “INCORRECT” item, and they can neither refund me nor pick-up and redeliver the correct item, which is the Libertea Brewed Tea. I told the agent once again that this is not what I ordered, and the agent told me that there’s nothing they can do to correct the situation, they cannot re-deliver or exchange the item with the correct one.

How New Technology Can Affect Your Cyber Security Education

The digital world is brimming with opportunities for new careers every day. Whether you’re interested in becoming a digital analyst, an IT engineer, or a forensic computer scientist, the career options for your degree in cyber security are nearly limitless. However, new technology is constantly on the rise, and it has the potential to change your digital workplace in countless ways. If you’re interested in becoming a cyber security specialist, here are a few examples of how evolving technology could impact your career.

It Can Make Your Job Easier…

For almost every instance of a cyber security breach, the digital world has the opportunity to learn from the experience and strengthen its security measures. Firewalls are stronger, encrypted data is harder to crack, and VPNs are constantly being enhanced to keep sensitive information locked up tight. Better defensive measures also give way for better offensive measures, meaning new technology can make it easier to track down and stop cyber attacks before information is compromised. With the innovation of smartphones and other ultra-portable computers, it’s easy to stay on top of cyber security from almost anywhere in the world.

…And More Challenging

Why I switched to NANO for my preferred payment method?

The answer is simple. It’s fast, it’s fee-less and it’s very convenient to use. Since 3 years ago, I’ve been accepting only ETH for custom development work. When Cardano was announced, I also accept ADA together with ETH. ETH is super slow compared to ADA but still useful as a lot of my clients prefer to pay ethers instead of other cryptocurrency.

But now, there’s NANO. This is actually an old cryptocurrency but I just found out about it because more and more users prefer to get paid via NANO. I was very curious and tried the Natrium wallet (check out natrium.io) to send and receive NANOs.

To my surprise, what I read in twitter, reddit, and everything is actually true. It’s insanely fast and miraculously free! Yep, almost all cryptocurrencies charge a certain amount of fee for your funds transfer to be processed (Except IOTA and NANO). With NANO, you don’t need to pay any fee at all. Like how the hell is this not used by everyone else. I tried sending from wallet to exchange and from wallet to wallet and it’s absolutely freakin’ fast! It blew my mind! This is what a decentralized crypto should be. Fast, free, and easy to use.

In fact it’s the world’s fastest cryptocurrency in existing. If you don’t believe me, Google it!

So from now on, I’ll be accept NANO and only NANO.

Thank you Colin LeMahieu for creating NANO! You just realized the vision of Satoshi Nakamoto!

Gcash Verification Failed: Again, and again, and again

Have you ever tried verifying your account with Gcash and it keeps on failing? If you’re like me who attempted to fully verify a Gcash account, but the system doesn’t accept it, then hello! You’re not alone.

I repeatedly received an SMS saying that my Gcash verification failed. I have tried different valid IDs, but it keeps on failing.

A few years ago, my Gcash account was verified via KYC. Then last year, there’s a new verification method, and I was asked to verify again, then it went through.

This year, Gcash asked my to verify my account again after downgrading it to basic. Now I cannot get through. I have tried my passport, driver’s license, and UMID, but to no avail.

I wonder why it keeps on failing. I just received an SMS that Gcash will get in touch with me to guide me though my verification, but they didn’t reach out.

Feel free to leave a comment below if you encountered the same issue with your Gcash account.

PayPal to GCASH Philippine Peso cash-in disabled


If you wonder why the PHP currency in your PayPal account is not appearing anymore if you attempt to cash-in using the GCASH app via PayPal, then you’re not alone. I wondered too and found out that they disabled the PHP option. So if you have Philippine Pesos in your PayPal account, you cannot withdraw it instantly as of May 2018. You need to convert it to USD or any other foreign currency, except PHP! Yep, such. a. hassle. Globe is. Creating. Wonderful. Wonderful indeed.

Beware of the Quanta Wallet Scam


If you’re looking for a Bitcoin or Ethereum wallet and somebody referred Quanta Wallet to you, please stay away from it. You can deposit your ethers, but you cannot withdraw it. So beware of using unknown wallets because somebody referred it to you. This scam wallet is available on iOS and Android. You cannot export your keys when you use this wallet. You cannot reset your password if you’ve forgotten it. And once your cryptocurrencies are deposited in the Quanta Wallet, just say goodbye to it, because you’ll never get it back.

This wallet is developed by QuantaPLC. An unknown software developer. They also have a github page with a readme file. Haha!
https://github.com/quantaplc/qnt

There are too many scam cryptocurrency wallets nowadays, so be very careful when choosing your wallet. If you want a wallet where you don’t control your own keys, always trust the big names such as Coinbase, Cex.io, and Bitfinex. If you want to control your own keys, but it’s too complicated for you to manually generate your key, or you’re to lazy to download the official Ethereum wallet at https://ethereum.org/, then use MyEtherWallet.com. At least, you have full control of your own keys and you can use it in any wallet you want.

Always be careful, always stay safe.

SSS e-services inquiry page is blank!


If you wonder why it’s blank after you ignored the IE11 download popup, then do not wonder anymore. Because our multi-billion government doesn’t have a budget to revamp their very old website, that’s why it’s not supported it all modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Safari, and IE Edge. You need to download IE11 or older sucky browser to view your contributions. If you don’t have a really old browser or if you’re using a Mac OS X, then you need to run Windows via Parallels or Remote Desktop Connection to use IE. If you don’t have any of those tools, then just don’t bother viewing your contributions anymore.

I hope SSS will do something about their website. It’s soooooo old and unusable anymore. Instead, they encourage us to download a very ugly browser from the past.
