Re-Connected!

I'M BACK!!

It's great to be back in civilization! Yes, it took over two weeks to get my internet back up and running properly.

Can you guess the reason why I got disconnected?
a) A Telecom repair person yanked my connection and forgot to plug it back in
b) My broadband modem was qualified to be traded-off in an antique store
c) A Telecom engineer messed with my account giving me blazing speeds comparable to a dial-up connection.

I'll give you the answer right now: d) All of the above!

Wasn't that exciting?!

(sarcasm mode: off)

On the bright side, at least Garandee and I were able to spend more quality time together. She got to watch all her pending Japanese soap dramas, and I got to...

got to...

uhhh...

...call the support hotline constantly and bug them to hell. Sigh.


Garando mode:
Sorry for missing your comments and blogs, I'll be on CATCH-UP MODE!

All of the above ang answer. Lol. I guessed right why you were so 'quiet'. Net connection issues nga. Welcome back! Na-miss namin ang posts mo. =)

Maver said...

I am dead scared to ask which telco service you are referring to. Hehe!

Garando said...

Witsandnuts:
Yeah, those two weeks felt like eternity! I missed all you guys! Now I'm back, I'm gonna do a lot of catching up. :)

Maver:
LOL! Here's a clue: Monopoly. :D

At last mababasa na ulit kita. Para maiba naman dahil recently puro seryoso ang kalipunan ng mga OFWs dahil sa isinulat ng isang blogger.

Welcome back! Glad that the Telecom company finally fixed all the mess. But they can't return back the time being lost...

Ako naman, I have the Internet connection but the time to bloghop is very much limited. Will try to catch up too... :)

Well, I know how it is to be away from the internet.
Was in the same situation this last week but mine wasn't a problem with the ISP but with the computer itself.
Not completely solved but anyway, life keeps going so let's catch up everything right?

It's good to have some quality time with your partner every once in a while (the more frequent the better, obviously).
