When we got a new desktop at home a few weeks ago, the need for internet connection and a wifi router presented itself right after. I knew my brother already had a lot on his hands so I volunteered to shoulder the internet subscription fees as well as the expenses for the wifi router. We got our internet connection from PLDT thru its myDSL Plan P990. For the wifi requirement, I got a basic Belkin home router.
Belkin is an American wifi brand. I got our Belkin home router from Octagon-SM Manila for P1,995 (approx. $48). Compared to the other wifi routers in the market, I found Belkin’s design more sleek and stylish. It was a bit bulky, but I didn’t mind. It was gray in color and came with a CD installer and a free Belkin mouse (worth P400) when I bought it.

Right after hearing mass, we had a birthday lunch in Malabon. Traffic was light so we didn’t have a hard time getting here. Its actually the boyfriend’s uncle’s birthday today and we’re here to join in the fun. The celebration is still ongoing. I had a hearty lunch and I particularly enjoyed the pork caldereta and the gambas. Yummy. I feel very at home; it must be because I’ve been here for a few times already. There’s internet connection so the blogger in me took advantage.
I like it here. The boyfriend’s uncle’s family is big. There are two babies that keep the house alive. They are both healthy and bubbly. They would smile and giggle for no reason. They’re a sight to behold. The boyfriend’s mom is having a great time playing with them. I played with them earlier and it was fun. I even urged the boyfriend to give them strollers come Christmas time, like those uppababy vista strollers I saw in a baby shopping site the other day while picking a gift for J, my best friend’s baby and my god child.

It’s been two days of no internet in the office. No, we didn’t encounter any technical problem. It’s just that, we had our tables and cabinets revarnished and we had to unplug our internet hub lest we clutter our workplace. We’re still waiting for the maintenance boys to return our newly-varnished tables and we’ll be back to normal (internet-wise).
While waiting for the internet to spring back to life again, I was able to write some posts for my blogs. I was also able to arrange my computer files neatly in folders. Haha. That should give you a clue on how bored I was during the past two days. I felt like I was restless and unable to function properly.
