The newly bought tablet of my sister is broken after accidentally fell on the floor. The screen is broken and the LCD. Same thing happened to my tablet before. It is still under warranty too, and it only cost me 1,000 pesos for the broken LCD. Because it is under warranty, she brought it to the customer service. We are expecting the same amount for the LCD but the attendant told us that they do not have available LCD. They have to send the tablet back to their main branch to have it fixed. But the sister told them to inform her if there is available LCD and how much it will cost.
The days ago, the company called the sister and told her of the amount of the LCD. We were shocked because the amount of the LCD is almost the same amount of the unit/tablet. They explained to her why it cost a bit high. The sister is sad. She just told the attendant to just send back the unit/tablet because the amount is not acceptable.haha! She opted not to have it fixed there. She felt sad for what had happened to her tablet. I just told herr to just let it passed and just charge it to experience. We will look for a technician though that can fixed it and have the same LCD with lesser amount. It will take time though, but we have enough patience.haha!
The city have scheduled rotational brownout in very areas because of the power shortage. This is not the first time though because the city did the same things years before for the same reason. However, the problem now is that the brownout takes longer up to six (6) hours and two brownouts in a certain areas in a day. I have read on the status of my friends on social media regarding this matter. The problem is that the brownout happens at night and it is summer here in the country the weather is not so good. Sleeping where the weather is hot and can’t use the electric fan or A/C because brownout is a torture. I have experienced it before and it is difficult.
I am glad that our area is not affected of the rotational brownout. I am wondering also, why we are not included. We do experienced brownout but only lasted for 30 minutes or less. I must say that our area is fortunate. I pity those affected with rotational brownout. Anyways, I wish that this issue will be settle soon and the government will do something about this power shortage because it is not fair to experienced this brownouts and still paying huge amount of electric bill. People deserves to get the right service of the amount they paid, right?
The father is expecting a money from the sold land in the province. They are processing the final documents and will be released anytime soon. While waiting the father is thinking on how he will spend the money. He is thinking of a business or buying a new car for the family. We tried putting up a small business years back but it was a failure. We decided to close it down. The ventured business is not that profitable. Because of the failure business, the father thought of buying new car instead. Since we like to travel and going to beach we do not need to rent a car anymore if we have one. And I like the idea.haha!
The BIL told us that there is an SUV car that is for sale. He knows the person so probably we will get big discount. The problem is that the car is automatic. The kind of car that the father does not like. He preferred manual. I saw the car and it is really nice. I did my very best to persuade father, but my best wasn’t good enough for I got a NO answer. The BIL brought the car once for the father to see. He likes the look of the car, unfortunately, automatic is not his type. I felt a bit sad because I like the car very much. The older brother also agreed to my father. Better luck next time for me. Hopefully we will find the car that the father wants so I can start driving lesson.haha! Pardon my excitement.*wink
Oh yeah, it is good to be back after four days of no internet. I can’t believe I lasted for days without laptop and no internet. Going online and started my day checking what is latest on my feeds and emails, is part of my daily routine. And not doing it for like four days is like a torture. It was hard to be honest but I do not have any choice because no internet connection at the province. If there is connection and the signal of my Internet Provider is excellent, I would surely bring with me my laptop and broadband so I am updated on what is happening online, also checking and updating my blogs.
Anyways, four days vacation is over and I enjoyed it very much. It really feels good to do nothing but relaxing, nothing to worry about and enjoying life offline. I so missed doing the things that I used to do before I started my online career (blogging). But since blogging is part of my life now and been doing it for almost five years, without laptop and internet connection is a torture. But without it, on Holy Week is really nice. It is the best time for me to meditate, rest, pray (for more blog opportunities in the coming days…AMEN!), and enjoy quiet moments especially at the province. I did have peace of mind at the province. I would surely do this again and again.
