San Juan to Makati

First at a Fire

Meralco, San Juan fire department, then Meralco, then engineering, looked at the post, if I remember correctly. Photo taken: 1:30 pm.

Electric sparks from a post outside our house last April 5 made me think of the 187 M. Paterno fire.  Thanks to former resident DS for giving me the address.

L to R: Fire Fighter Group hotline 16016, San Juan National Capital Region Bureau of Fire Protection. 4:56 pm.

Who do you call when a fire breaks out?

The sticker says, 'Emergency dial 522-22-22. ' Photo taken at 4:57:03 pm.

Who were first to arrive?  I don’t know what time each fire department or organization was called, but I thought I’d come up with a list of fire trucks that were within the same frame as the house on fire.

Engine 1 donated by Mr. & Mrs. Daretto (?) Sy. Mandaluyong Fire Station numbers: 532-24-02 or 21-89. 4:57:09 pm.

Incidentally, painted over Engine 190 of the DILG Bureau of Fire Protection are the words, ‘If this vehicle fails to respond in 5 minutes within your AOR call or text the regional director BFP-NCR Smart: (0908)660-9247  Globe: (0927)794-5721.’

Stickers: First Fire Rescue, Fire Brigade & Communications Group Inc. 1977 367-9720 hotline.

I assume that AOR means area of responsibility?

PLDT and Globe showed up the next morning. Photo: 3:49:30 pm.

Globe’s Blackberry Event

Posted in Globe Telecom,telecom companies by yangiwei on October 6, 2010

I went to Plains and Prints because it was nearest the entrance near Podium, where I parked.

My friend  invited me to be her ‘dance partner‘–invite’s term–to ‘Lucky 0917′ for subscribers who have been loyal to Globe Telecom since 1994, six years before I had my first cell phone. 🙂  She invited me because I’m so lucky, having won a Sony TV, a portable black-and-white TV, a trip to Amanpulo, the top Mooncake Festival prize like cash and thermos.

The Globe prize is a Limited Edition White Blackberry Bold 9700 that she doesn’t really care for as it is too big for her, but can give to someone.

The saleslady correctly guessed that I am a Medium.

I  had earlier invited her to the Appetite Restaurant Festival later this month.

Anyway, back to ‘Lucky 0917‘:  We had planned this last week, but it was only yesterday that I read her email, with the attached invite, which said that the attire was chic white.

She said it took her secretary at least six minutes to call a number for confirmaton.  Upon confirmation, Globe reminded her secretary about the attire.

She told me that we could probably get in even though we were wearing another color.  I thought that there might be a special prize for those in ‘costume,’ so I went to Megamall to get this dress.

I had emailed Globe to say that my bill printout had very small font, and told them that I wanted out of the paperless billing system.  This, after I had used the P 100 Jollibee GC.

I got this response from them:
