I've been meaning to write a happy post about the things I love about having an iPhone with a reliable connection the past months. This stemmed from one instance when there was a power outage but I managed to work online (thanks to Globe hotspot). More on that later.

WHY AM I GLAD TO BE GLOBE AGAIN? Let's count the ways...

WORK. In my quest to achieve work life balance, being mobile is inevitable! Checking mails and accessing our software is a breeze even when outdoors. Spending time with friends is possible while accessing your inbox for a while (emphasis: for a while). Doing facetime and Skype with your lovelies is possible though you're miles away. Mom was super OC when we braved the underground river in Palawan. Her imagination has a tendency to run really wild.

BLOG. These days, I publish my draft posts on the way. Whether on my way to business, events or random errands, I find it mighty convenient to publish posts early in the morning with my phone. Admittedly, connections vary on each area but good to know that Mega Manila has a healthy supply of cell sites making it easier to publish comments and do blog stuff without your laptop. Picture was during a product launch from Belo Medical Group.

INVEST. If you're a regular on my blog, Money Matters series is an on going thingy every week or two. Now that I'm invested in PSEi commonly known as the Philippine Stock Market, I (honestly) check my portfolio each day. I also tried to buy and sell shares of stock using my phone and I did it all without any hassle. You know how timing is relevant specially if you're bargain hunting those elusive blue chip companies.

BACK-UP PLAN. This is my favorite. You know the feeling when you're so engrossed on your work and the power just went kaput {insert angry face here}??! I owe this discovery to my younger brother. He taught me how to create a hotspot. I'm ecstatic to know that the connection speed is good! So even when the lights are out, you can see me tickling over my 2 monitors with Gmail, Skype and Software Apps on.

NO HIDDEN CHARGE. I've been with Globe since my college days. I switched from Prepaid to Postpaid plan years ago. Latest was when I availed their iPhone deal. I appreciate the fact that when they say it's Php 1,799 a month. That's your tab. No hidden charges whatsoever. This translates to predictable budget periodically. This alone is a good enough reason why my whole family switched to Globe! 

FULL DISCLOSURE: This is my entry to Nuffnang's GLAD TO BE GLOBE STORY. My Ms. Hyde (as opposed to Dra. Jekyll) keeps saying I can't win (because I seldom do specially on raffle contests). At some point, I stopped tickling my keyboard, then again, LIFE IS TOO SHORT to stop trying,  don't you think?

  1. So this is the one like in Kim Atienza's twitter, too. I was planning to join it, since I'm a sucker for giveaways (y), but I don't use globe for almost a year already.. Though I have filed an application (For a plan 1799, too but S4 as the gadget) just yesterday. So.... goodluck on your entry Ms. K! I hope you'll win this! ☺☺☺

  2. Goodluck!!! Never stop believing! :)

    Hope u win!

  3. we never know Miss K until we try. So keep your fighting spirit burning! :)

    btw, Globe always bug tatay about the plans, which I think was reasonable, he's been loading Php100 per week and I guess he'll be saving more if he'll avail Globe's postpaid plans. Matigas ulo po eh. Hihi. Pero I don't bother questioning his decision, pera naman niya pinapangload niya eh. hihi. I sometimes share his load to my phone pa nga eh, telling myself na babayadan ko kahit nakakalimutan ko naman after a day or two. mehehe :P

  4. I've been a Globe subscriber since I was in grade 6 and I think going from prepaid to plan really saves a lot of money & time(load kasi ng load hehehe).
