Globe Introduces Super One Unlimited Text and Call

Just a short sharing, last year, during my second year in college, we had this Product Proposal Project for our Basic Marketing. So we chose to use Sun Cellular as a brand and thought of a new product for it. Then we came up with the Couple's Load. It is basically an unlimited call and text for one month to a specific number for just 150 pesos. Looking back, our professor, Princess Velasco, said that the idea was great but we should not just concentrate on couples since parent-child can also be a target market.

And now Globe Introduces Super One Unlimited Text and Call, which is almost the same as the product we have thought of. HAHAHA. It is kind flattering to know that your ideas can materialize and be sold in the way you have thought of it.

Globe Super One allows you to link up to a specific number to get unlimited text and call to that number for a flat fee of Php150/month (Php175 for prepaid).

To register, text SUPER ONE <> ON to 8888 (postpaid). For prepaid, text SUPER ONE <> to 8888. Promo is until 9/15/10.

Globe Super One Unlimited Text and Call is part of Globe's My Super Plan.

Why do sad people love the sunset?

I was rereading the book by Antoine De Saint-Exupery entitled The Little Prince . And one of the sayings the Little Prince uttered that made great impact to me was his claim that sad people do love the sunset. And he was one of those people who loved the sunset.

I pondered really hard on his idea and came into the conclusion that when the sun sets, its light fades away, it vanishes and leaves no mark. People have the tendency to hate goodbyes simple because we do not want to miss one another or because we do not want the bond to just dissolve in thin air. But when we do say our goodbyes, we tend to characterize ourself with the setting sun, bidding goodbye.

Princess Velasco - You Still Have My Heart

A short background about Princess Velasco and me. Well, she was just my Basic Marketing Professor in De La Salle University! Lucky me! HAHA. I was able to see her in person and talk to her face-to-face. HAHAHA. Anyway, I was totally flabbergasted at the moment I knew about how she was related to the Addicted to Acoustic album. o_O. I was totally caught off guard of the idea. But who cares? She is pretty and her voice is wholesomely elegant. And off she goes to become one of the new singers of the generation. Anyhow, I like her acoustic renditions on her first album. The second, so-so.

So, why did I blog about Princess? Basically because I want to share her first original song on her Addicted to Acoustic 2 album. The song was written by Dave Langit a PDA Season 1 ex-scholar.

Listen to the song. I doubt that you would not go LSS to the song! :))

P.S. You want to hear it in MYX more often? Then vote for it!

McDonald's Ad in France

I really love how McDonald's do their advertisements. They do not simply try to sell their products to the customers, but they also try to impart values to the consumers. And these values are not merely used to express what McDo believes in rather it is used to inspire others to have a leap of faith and firmly accept what they believe in.

Obama's Dick Signature is Funny! :))

FM Static - Tonight

This song makes me melancholic of the days I spend with my high school friends laughing, chilling out and just trying to create the one of the soon to be best memories in our life. Being separated with your high school friends is really tough, especially when you have depended on them so much. But you have to cope with changes. Though it is pretty hard, you would make it. They say, 'Absence makes the heart grow fonder.'

The Superman In Our Life.

I was supposed to write an entry about "Mall Sales" but I opted to change the last minute, remembering that today is Father's day, hence the title. Wonder why? Well our dad's are our ultimate hero in life. When we were young, they never failed to protect us from any harm or danger creeping on us. When we became teens, they never forgot to spoil us on having fun at the same time give us helpful reminders in the path we are journeying. And when we become young adults, uhmm.. I still do now know what my dad would do since I am still a teenager. HAHA.

Anyway, my dad is one of the best persons in my life. I know how generic that claim during this time of the occasion is, but I sincerely mean it.

How did I come up with that claim?
Well basically because my dad has honestly worked hard to feed, clothe and satisfy five human beings' wants and needs. And those five human beings would be my my two sisters, me, my mom and of course himself. You might think that I am too materialistic, just mentioning about clothes, foods and wants. But as what I have said, that is just the basic.

Another reason to my claim would be my dad's way of showing his love and care. My dad has never hit us with any thing. He has never bad mouthed us in any occasion. I know that there are a lot of dads out there who would get easily pissed of to their children. But my dad never did. He would try to patiently understand our hearts, our feelings and our thoughts.

He is also the mediator in the family. As I have said, he rarely gets angry. He leaves the heated discussions among me, my sisters and my mom. And whenever we start to turn our little misunderstandings to shouting, my dad would always get himself ready to stop it. HAHA. It is really funny how my dad would always talk to us in a very calm manner, asking us to just reconcile with each other and respect each others' different opinions. I admire my dad for that.

Now I am teary-eyed. I did not expect that writing this blog entry would result to a lot of realizations. I realized that I have never really fully appreciated my dad for what he has done for me. I am honestly would not be studying at a prestigious school without him. I have never really thanked him for that. I guess this is why we celebrate Father's Day, to look back to what our dads have done for us. To appreciate their hard work and unconventional love for us.

To my dad, I Love You! I know I rarely tell you that, but it comes from the bottom of my heart. Someday, I would make you proud of me. I hope you would be! :)

Happy Father's Day to the greatest Dad in the World - My Dad! Don't argue okay? We all know he is the greatest. :))

Equus in Manila

Equus is a play written by Peter Shaffer. It was first shown on 1973 at the Royal National Theater in London. It was revived a lot of times in different places. But the 2007 revival at London's West End was the most news-breaking. It sure went as a surprise to everyone when the little Harry Potter they used to see, dared to take and portray a more matured and more complicated role. Yes, I am talking about Daniel Radcliffe here, taking the role of Alan Strang.

And now the controversial has found its way here in the Philippines. Marco Manalac will play the role of Alan Strang. Red Concepcion will be his alternate.

Marco Manalac is a Cum Laude Literature graduate at Ateneo de Manila University.
He currently works at another well-known university as a Marketing Director. And also, he is presently trying his luck to become the next MYX VJ. Know more about this guy with Ricky Lo's interview with him.

Equus in Manila will start showing on July 9 to 25, 8:00PM on Fridays and Saturdays, 3:30PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Visit Repertory for more details.
