My Flight, Gadgets, and First Time in Dumaguete
My flight to Dumaguete went alright. Just a few annoyances from the person seated beside my back, who kept on sending & receiving SMS even when we were already advised to switch off our phones. And he also played Bee Gees tracks aloud. Nothing wrong with the Bee Gees (I love them) but come on, doesn’t he have any headphones to use? I noticed that the newest “Pasalubong ng Bayan” is also a donut company - Krispy Kreme! For months, I’ve been seeing Krispy Kreme boxes in different airports. It’s understandable as they don’t have branches in the provinces and they are curious how they taste like.
I spent most of the time in the plane listening to a gdgt podcast on my iPod. If you noticed my picture, I was wearing a wireless bluetooth stereo headset. It’s one of our newest products from I.Tech called the Blueband Sport, and I’ve been testing it for almost a week now and I’m really loving it. All I had to do is connect my iPod to my I.Tech Bluecon G5, which acts as my bluetooth adapter and pair it to my Blueband Sport. Anyway, I’ll post some more about it next time. I pulled out my Gigabyte M912 Tablet Netbook and typed the Novena in Honor of the Holy Spirit. I took photos of the prayer last night at our church’s adoration chapel and retyped it. I hope reciting the prayer by heart will do some good for me. I’m really hoping…
I arrived in Dumaguete past 4 and quickly walked away from the airport. I was told by my colleague that I can get a “traysikol” in the main road for only Php 8.00, compared to the Php 100.00 being charged at the airport. I did just that but the driver noticed I’m not a local and began negotiating for my fare. I told him the hotel is near and there’s no need to be charged Php 60.00 he’s asking. How outrageous! Fortunately, a local whom I’ve asked help from flagged a trcyicle for me and I only paid 8 bucks. My colleagues from Cebu arrived at the hotel shortly before I reached there. I’ll be conducting a training later for our Account Manager’s dealer and walk around the streets here afterwards and see if I can find something interesting to write about. I need to relax.
