“Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.”
Emo? Nah... =p I just want to share to everybody that one of the things I've been waiting for has finally arrived! Can you guess what it is? Hehe. If you're an avid reader of this blog, you probably know that last February, I joined Globe's Greatness Starts at Home Blogging Contest. Did I tell you that I won a consolation prize?? I guess so. lols. Actually, I received another prize from that contest. I posted the story HERE HERE HERE!!! Those were tickets to the Mind Museum. Just read the post for details. Alrighty? =P
Okay, enough of the blah blahs. Here's a pic of what I received last Sunday:
There was a little story behind the arrival of this package. It was around 3pm when a caller with unregistered number called me. I was hesitant to pick it up at first but I still did in the end. haha.
Caller: Hello? Si Ma'am Lilibeth po ba ito?
Me: Yes, sino po sila?
Caller: Sa globe po ito, dala po namin yung napanalunan nyong phone. Anu po ba landmark ng address nyo?
Me: [I looked at the screen of my phone. His number, from what I know, is SMART and not GLOBE. So, I became suspicious. haha] Sa ****** po kami, tanong ko lang po anong courier po ba 'to?
Caller: ***** po.
Me: [hindi naintindihan] Ahhh, di po ako familiar dun. [bwahahaha]
Caller: Ahh Ma'am, pwede po bang makipagkita nalang sa isang lugar?
Me: [ I told myself, WHY???] Di po ako pwede umalis ng bahay ngayon. [Palusot Mode: ON]
Caller: Ahh ganun po ba Ma'am, sige po tatawag nalang ako pag malapit napo kami dyan.
Me: OK po. Thanks.
An hour passed and I saw a very big truck [as in very big for just a phone. hehe] parked in front of our house. A man of around 35y/o popped out of the truck [hehe] handling a paper bag as illustrated in the above picture.
I was kinda relieved that he was not some kind of kidnapper or whatsoever. =P
Going back to the topic, so, I already received my Samsung Champ. Finally, after months of waiting and endless follow ups from Globe's FB, twitter and e-mail.
|Hello Samsung Champ :)|
|I noticed that the seal was tampered so I asked the man why is this so. He said that they really open the packages to make sure that the declared items are real.|
The good thing about this courier is they let [or asked?] me to check if the device and its accessories are functioning well. They were also polite though they scared me with their call. hehe.
|Here's my prize! :)|
I thought I could use this phone as my official *work phone*. I planned to insert my Sun Sim to this phone 'coz most of our superiors use that network. However, upon insertion of the Sim, the phone welcomed me with NETWORK LOCKED message. Globe's so wise. Argh.
As of now, this phone is in the *bad* hands [lols] of my younger brother. He was so kulet and he keeps on bugging me to give it to him. So, last night, I did.
Well, I still got the chance to hold it for almost...well...two days? haha.
Anyways highways, that's all for today. Thanks for reading! =)
