Krispy Kreme, CIBO & Matryoshka Doll


I totally hate new Krispy Kreme's new Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts. Really. Or maybe it's just my tongue expecting a different chocolate taste. Nevertheless, I felt I've wasted my PhP360 for a dozen of Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts. I should've bought half a dozen of it instead of a full dozen since I bought an additional dozen of assorted doughnuts making a total of PhP730.

Moving on...

This all happened BTW last Friday night when June & I went to see "Race To Witch Mountain" at Galleria (as usual!). The movie was great! I had fun. We were almost late, I later realized it was a one-time screening. LOLz

After the movie, we dine in at CIBO ShangriLa. June was insisting we try out the place. He loves their Spinach dip (mabigat siya sa tiyan, huh?!) plus we also tried the Fragola and the La Foresta, whatever that is. I am not familiar or kinda used to fine dining. I usually leave that to June and AC. LOLz

Finally, the Matryoshka Doll! My mom requested me to buy her a Matryoshka Doll since she was doing a cross-stitch of it. Sample daw. Ay, parang naglilihi lang ulit ang nanay ko, wehehe!

The Matryoshka Doll I bought at ShangriLa was just PhP600. It was around 7 inches tall. I didn't like the designs of their big ones (around 10 inches) nor the small ones (around 3.5 inches). 'Yan na ung nag-iisang stock nila na palochino ang style. When I arrived home around 11pm that night, mom was already sleeping but I tried at least to show her the Matryoshka Doll and dun ko na natikman nga ung Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I will never buy that Choco glazed doughnuts again. Buti pa ung Honey glazed.

Michael Sarver - You Are Not Alone

He nailed it! I didn't notice Michael Sarver until he did this one! "You Are Not Alone" is my #1 Michael Jackson and I actually liked his version than the original.

Blackberry Bold 9000


During our training and even for the call simulations to prepare us for the actual customer calls, one of the challenges will be a Blackberry phone.

"Urgh, not another Blackberry call!"

Blackberry phones are considered high-end devices not only because they have QWERTY keypads, but because of their sophisticated design and complicated system and uhm, sometimes the navigation.

We were also provided with live BlackBerry phones with SIM cards from our US clients. not only Blackberry phones, but similar HED phones from Nokia, Palm, Samsung, LG, HTC and Motorola.

I like the BlackBerry Bold 9000. Hindi siya ganun kalapad, and astig ng LCD screen display! Sosy pa ang dating. It makes me wish I had a Blackberry phone. The only thing that I don't like with it is since it's not that wide, the QWERTY keys are ultra-small! Yaiks! And if you have a large set of fingers, you'll find it quite difficult to press the keys. But there's always the trusty trackball na parang roll-on ball ng deodorant. Wehehe!

The BlackBerry Bold 9000 is priced at $399.99 ($299.99 after a mail-in rebate). I'm not sure if this is available locally.

I'm trying to review most of the BlackBerry phone navigation & system since we were forewarned that the most difficult phones to troubleshoot on the floor (workplace) are those BlackBerry phones! Yay!
