Can I just pay via an App?

Now you can! I just downloaded the GCASH App right after I heard there is (much to my surprise!) and I started testing the features. Apparently, GCASH had just relaunched and is now even better and more functional.

So all you need to do is to download the app (it’s free, btw) and launch it. Make sure that you have registered first via sending an SMS to 2882

Enter your MPIN, and you’re good to go with the app. With the GCASH App, you can now send money, pay bills, buy prepaid load, and even donate cash! Converting money, paying bills and buying prepaid load is free of charge.


It also has a summarized home view where you can view your transactions for a month, which is really useful especially if a bulk of your transactions are done thru GCASH.

All you need for this App is a smartphone (available in iOS, Android, and BlackBerry) and a Globe SIM.


In a world where there’s an app for everything, it’s really great that a local brand can come up with a very functional app. While it has a lot to improve at (like eliminating SMS registration and optimizing list of brands tied up with) it’s a still a  big leap forward for a local brand like Globe.

What do you think of the GCASH App? Can you think of ways to incorporate it in your daily lives? Let me know in the comments section below :)

Meet Andrew, the BB 9320

Sorry for the lack of creative process in naming my new phone… It’s such a no-brainer to name him after my Andrew Garfield, hihi. Oh shoot, now you know my password for this phone’s amazing wi-fi hotspot feature. Teehee!

I was supposed to do an official unboxing of my new phone but I got ahead of myself and was so excited to see it running. Hihi. AND IT WAS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL. I am a full-pledged BlackBerry user for three years now and even though all those news about RIM closing and shit, I won’t even try to deny that I love my BlackBerry phones. Now with higher resolutions and faster processors, they’re still that no fuss, no frills, and no nonsense smartphone that I love. It does the job for me, and I can even type without looking at the phone!

And I got it for a good deal! I upgraded my plan from Globe Telecom’s BlackBerry Plans and received the phone as a loyalty reward. Really really thankful to Globe!

My favorite feature from this new Curve model is the wi-fi mobile hotspot capability which can share connection to up to 5 devices. Believe me for community managers on the go like me, this could come in handy. Especially for some transition I am entering now — which deserves another blog post, really.

One drawback to this though is they really have to have heavy duty batteries. With my internet running 24/7, it’ll be much better if I don’t have to plug Andrew for at least twice a day.

What do you think?

EDIT: I left my phone when I went out for lunch and when I was back roughly an hour ago, the phone just magicly lit and it was just alive. I AM SO HAPPY plus some other things happened today, so yeah – I’m already solved for this day :)

Let’s interrupt a seemingly good day with the worst news I can hear for the life of me. My phone just died on me. I feel like dying too.

Seriously, I’m getting a new one on Monday and I still haven’t backed up. But I was planning to! I reset my phone a few hours ago and now it won’t open at all! ZOMG. CONTACTS. MESSAGES. VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT NOTES. It feels like losing a limb for me since I do everything with my BlackBerry :(

So please if anyone can just help me recover my data. And hopefully, my phone can still be fixed. I’m giving it to my sister :(


Her name is Onika you can call her Nicki


Just met Nicki Minaj earlier today and it was awesome (I love her leggings!!!) though I was a bit a late. Thanks to our friends from STATUS Magazine who took a picture and posted it immediately at their blog (you guys are soooo awesome!) Didn’t bring my big-ass DSLR camera because I don’t wanna leave it in the baggage counter later at the concert area. I seriously need a smaller camera and/or a new phone. Hihi :P

Now I’m just killing time and waiting for her concert later at the MOA arena. Who’s watching later? See you there!

P.S. I still don’t have shiny leggings. I suck at shopping for these kinda things. Where do I get some? :(

Thanks to Globe and BlackBerry Philippines!

Let’s go to beach each let’s go get away

Look who’s watching the Pink Tour?! It’s me and my friend Nica Minaj! Thanks to Globe and Blackberry for the tickets (and good seats!)

Now, it’s time to plug Nicki Minaj in the pla-yah, holla!


Go mobile with MiLi

I’ve been living with my Blackberry phone for quite some time and it has been there in my high and low times. Well, aside for my personal transactions, it’s where I work sometimes because basically my job revolves around Facebook and Twitter. And add to that when I randomly become lazy to open Toshi, my netbook, I have been a heavy Blackberry user ever since.

The only drawback from every phone, I think, is the battery life. Seriously, when I work – and I mean Twitter, BBM, YM, and the office apps are on, my battery is only good until less than half a day. Yeah, and I’m out of the house for 25 hours. And it’s such a hassle to find cafes with enough sockets. It’s sad but good thing, I have MiLi!

Maybe I’ll get this next – it’s for bigger devices like iPad and laptops!

MiLi is just a simple innovation – it’s a mobile power storage which you plug to your smartphone and et voila – izz like God’s heaven sent to people who use up their batteries at the midday!
