Journey to Japan: Intro

I decided to stay up late for Monday will be a non-working holiday here in the Philippines. While I wander in the interwebs, I checked Cebu Pacific Air's website for any on-going promo. Ha! My favorite Piso Seat Sale at the right time. CebPac's website during off-peek hours is easier to navigate since there's low internet traffic. I looked for a destination. I checked Hong Kong, Macau, and Japan. JAPAN! Osaka for Php1 only! ..Right there and then, I booked it.

Cebu Pacific's Php1 Seat Sale promo period usually lasts only for a few days, two to three days max, or until promo seats last. CebPac's travel period for this promo falls from June 1 to September 30, 2015. I booked for a one-way ticket (like what I did with my Singapore trip last 2011) to Osaka for Php2126.99 only.

After successfully booking a seat, my next step is to settle the payment before midnight or my booking will be automatically cancelled. But be mindful if you choose to settle your CebPac's booking over-the-counter for some have cut-off time only until 5PM or your payment will be registered the next day.

I will share here all plans, processes, and progress of my Journey to Japan. Kawaii!

Here, have a piece of Japan..

Oh sorry, wrong picture!

Here, really..

Oh hello Miss Rice!

Oh hello to myself!

I have not visited this blog in a looooong time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

By the way this blog must be BURRRRRNED! It has no content at all. I reviewed it and see some past previous post --- it's all piece of garbage.

I am in rage. I'm bitter. That is what I am and this post.

Right now, I must finish this post. But I am hungry. So I might not get this done. I'll try.
A little later, my roommate would probably get up from his long sleep and he'd probably volunteer to buy our food outside.
Later this afternoon, I'd probably walk into the cinema to watch that Samurai X. Not a big anime fan. But I liked the first one which was in the cinemas last two years.
Tonight, I'd like to go for a run around The Fort.
That's the plan. Today.

Let me take you back to what happened several days ago.
Yesterday, I went out to run around BGC area.
The day before yesterday, I was able to find and buy a running shoes I really liked for less that 15 minutes in Market Market.
Two days ago, I punched a wall so hard because I was angry. I punched it again that moment twice. Because of madness.
There. Stop right there.

Customized Blogger Header using Adobe Illustrator

Rice Soup for the Soul blog header from 2011 to 2013.
The first time I have heard of Adobe Illustrator was in 2009 by a co-worker, a Graphic Artist in my first company. That was also my first time I saw it's interface. But I did not learn the software back then. I was just introduced.

It was a year after that I had a lot of free time to learn the software. Another Graphic Artist who I worked with gave me a CD of tutorial. It was They're effective for a newbie like me. I learned the basics almost immediately.

Unionbank Cyber EON Virtual Credit Card for Paypal

I've always wanted to shop at But never had a credit card. Even when I started working! Such a shame. So for those, like me, who are dying to get themselves a credit card, Unionbank's EON Card is the answer to our prayers.

Not only that this card will allow you to shop at Amazon.

You may also get started bidding at ebay. Link your card with PaypalUse it to buy music on itunes. Buy apps on google play. Or start buying items from Jazon Mraz site, like this LOVE necklace:
YES, shop until you get a carpal tunnel!

Anyway, going back to the debit card, the part that I hated the most was getting one was when I found out that the branch has no photocopier machine! They made me have my IDs photocopied outside, and God knows where the shops that offer photocopy service are. Some people would probably deposit tons of money at their branch yet they couldn't afford to have a xerox machine.

Note: Bring your IDs and have them photocopied before going to the branch of your convenience.

At the bank, they make you fill out two identical forms. Ask you few questions like what your job is, where do live, and such. They'll make you pay for Php350 for annual fee like any other credit cards. For complete set of other fees, click here. Theh, they hand me a receipt and told me to go back after 3 banking days to get my card.

Surprisingly, exactly after 3 days, I got a text message from Unionbank that I could pick it up. Hmm.. not bad, Unionbank! Apply now online, click here.

As for the group of people who requested for the no. of the back of this card, it's 143. xoxo Thank for your comment, fellow netizen! This blog really appreciates it. Aside from that 3 digits you're requesting to get rich, why not also try this:

Do it for a living, for the common good. Be rich! Make your momma proud. Cheers~
