Brand New Theme, because the old one sucks

I just switched to a brand new theme. Why? Because the old one sucks. It sucks because it’s old, it’s old that’s why it sucks. I’m currently in Singapore and everyone’s on quarantine right now. It seems that the COVID-19 Pandemic will not end this 2020.

Anyway, I’m now blogging using the WordPress app for Android. It’s easier looks sleek. I don’t like the block editor though as it has so many unnecessary features that I really don’t need. It groups my paragraphs into graphs which sucks.

There. If I press enter, it goes down to another blog. I’m not really used to this. I just love the basic editor where there are no other distractions.

Time will tell if I will tell in love with the new editor. But for now I’m annoyed how convenient is it. I mean, I’m annoyed of its convenience. The automation, autocorrect, stuff like that.

But… It’s convenient to just type using my voice. How? Google keyboard. I’m on Android 10, blogging via the WP app. You can just press the microphone icon located at the upper right side of the keyboard.

I’ll blog more often now by talking to my phone and pressing submit. How convenient! I’m annoyed, but I’m happy.

Where to find your Bitfinex referral code in your account dashboard?

My post title above is what I’ve been googling and binging for hours now but I still cannot find what I am looking for. My friends are asking for a referral code in order to create a new Bitfinex account.

So I quickly logged in to my Bitfinex account to get my referral code, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I even searched the entire FAQs page of Bitfinex but to no avail.

There are also several posts in Reddit, posting their referral codes, but I couldn’t find mine.

Finally I decided to e-mail Bitfinex support and they replied withib 24 hours saying that the referral program was discontinued and they are working on a new system to limit the number of new users using an invite code.

This is somehow similar to Replika.ai where you can only create an account via invitation and once you signed up using the invitation code you can invite 5 more users in return. With this method, they can limit a huge number of bogus users.

I don’t know what the invite limit of Bitfinex but we’ll find out pretty soon once the new invitation system is live.

Scam Alert: Monspace (MSD) and Omnia Cryptocurrency

Beware of these two “cryptocurrency” MLM / investment scam. People in the Philippines are easily lured to get rich quick ponzi schemes, when they hear about Bitcoin. Monspace is claiming to be the next Bitcoin, hahahaha! It’s not even in the top 10 marketcap, not even in the top 100. It’s a fake cryptocurrency, built to scam innocent people who doesn’t have any idea about the blockchain.

You can google monspace, ms dollars, or omnia, you’ll easily find hundreds of references that it’s a scam. There are also innocent people in Youtube promoting monspace as the next Bitcoin, and you should get in now before it’s too late. Your P9000 will be worth a “million” in the future of you become a member now! Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity. These poor humans doesn’t know that they were scammed and they are scamming other Filipinos.

Just today I heard two middle aged women talking about how much they earned referring their friends to Monspace cryptocurrency. The other lady claimed that she makes P4000 per referral! She doesn’t have any clue that she is scamming other people. Oh my goodness… I want to confront them and warn them but it would be impolite as they don’t know me. I just silently listened in their conversation.

Be very careful before investing in any cryptocurrency. Always check the market cap, the technology behind it, exchanges listing it, and other references that you can read online. If it has very low trading volume or very low market cap, it’s obviously a scam. Even if it’s listed in Coinmarketcap.com, or you read about it in Nasdaq, CNBC, Cointelegraph, Forbes, and other well-known news sites, be careful and don’t believe immediately. There are paid news distribution platforms that are affiliated with well-known news sites and scam articles are automatically posted there without filters or approval . Similar to the INTcoin scam, it’s posted on CNBC, but it’s a successful scam and the creators just disappeared after cashing out their scammed money.

Be watchful, be careful, be vigilant. The world wide web and cryptocurrencies are a haven of scams.

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.

PokemonGo: Why I cannot use my Lucky Egg and Incense anymore

Did you notice that after the recent update, you cannot use your Lucky Eggs and Incense anymore? Regardless of how much you tap or swipe, or do any unique gestures in your screen, you won’t be able to use your Lucky Eggs and Incenses? I don’t know if I’m alone or if someone is experiencing the same problem as mine.

This problem recently occurred after the new gym mechanics was implemented. I already search in Google, Reddit, Pokemongo blogs, and other sites, but to no avail.

I’m also having a hard time throwing berries to increase the chances of capturing Pokemons.

If you’re encountered the same problem as I did, please leave a comment below.

Btw, I’m using iOS (iPad) with the latest Pokemon Go app installed.

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!
