Cherry Mobile Windows Phone Alpha Style

Ok, so I got myself a new Cherry Mobile phone - Alpha Style for only Php2,999 that runs in Windows OS, 1.2GHz Quad-Core, 5MP Rear Camera. Front camera - 0.something pixels.

It's in crystal clear back casing - really prone to scratches and finger prints.

Screen resolution is OK if you're not too sensitive. Or maarte! Not as fine as those of Samsung's but hey, you get this phone for only Php 2,999!

Scrolling isn't as smooth as what I am used too. But it's not gonna make you want to throw the phone to the wall *coughs Cherry Mobile Hyper So anyway.. rejoice for Windows Phone has come to people like us with very limited budget!!

So, let's begin..

First, you might just want to register your new Windows Phone so you can customize your phone and be able to download apps and games. Create an Outlook account here: sign up now 

1. Can I use my Windows Phone without creating an account on Microsoft site?
>> Yes, you can. But no. What's wrong with you?

2. But why?
>> Because that's how the world works, darling. You get an Android Phone, you create a Google Account. This is a genius strategy because last June, Google has dominated the market with 1 billion Andoid users. (This has no basis, I didn't check the stats, I just assumed it.)

After registering successfully, you'll be faced with trouble logging in with your newly created Outlook account. You might get this 800c0019 error code but don't sweat. It's not your slow connection. Neither because you bought a Cherry Mobile phone. Your solution is simple, change or correct the date and time of your new Windows Phone and you're good to go. If it isn't resolve by changing the date and time, then I don't know.

How to do it:

Go to settings > date+time > then, change your Windows Phone date and time

Finally, sync your Windows Phone with your PC or Laptop. (This is BS btw because Apple started it all. You can't do anything with your Apple gadget unless you have installed an iTunes on your PC. Or Mac. Whatever.)

Download Windows phone app for desktop: HERE

I'd probably post some more about this AMAZING phone. Because I'm liking it.

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 lynda.com. They're effective for a newbie like me. I learned the basics almost immediately.

Here are some of my creations.. Be amazed!!

This birthday cake, I learned manipulating shapes.

On this picture I was practicing lines.

This one.. shawdows, of course.

And here, colors!
