This is the era of bitcoins.



This is just one of the bitcoin faucets I have joined in.


This is it. It is the era of bitcoins and it’s already the end of 2017. You and I must have bitcoins, too.

I was caught in the Bitcoin storm surge last week when I saw a video online from a Filipino who is into Bitcoin also.

I signed up last week at coins dot ph which is the preliminary stage for owning bitcoins in the Philippines since you need to have a bitcoin wallet in order to have your own bitcoins. I bought a few bitcoins using my coins dot ph account and I will be updating for my first payout to see the legitimacy of these paying bitcoin miners and faucets.

These are the bitcoin faucets that I have signed up with:

These are the bitcoin miners that I have joined:

You only need to click the claim button, do the recaptcha image which is used by the system to verify you as a human user since there are bots that are used by some users, and finally, click the submit button or claim now button for you to earn a few satoshi which is the smallest unit of bitcoins.

Remember, you need to have bitcoin wallet in order to buy and sell bitcoins. You can register for one here at coins dot ph which is very useful for Filipinos.

There are many other wallets available out there, you only need to search for it. Search, read, research, research, research before you sign up and join.

Lazada Going Paperless Already?

Lazada Philippines’ paperless delivery via Ninja Van.

I received one of the three items I ordered last 21 October 2017 from Lazada Philippines. Fortunately, it was within schedule, using Standard Shipping on the delivery schedule of Monday 23 to Thursday 26, October 2017.

The item that I purchased was a Davis D-201 Digital Keyboard (Black) with Free Learning Module and Global Stand worth ₱ 2,123.00 (at the time I purchased it online) with no warranty available. It was a replacement for the old mini digital keyboard used by my one-year-old son.

The item was delivered in good condition, properly packaged and within the specified delivery schedule time frame. It has complete packaging including the mini-microphone, adapter, and a free Learning Module and Global Stand. It has basic specifications including:

  • 54 Keys
  • 20 Timbres 10 Rhythms
  • 10 Percussions
  • 8 Demonstration Songs
  • Demo one Demo All
  • Master& Accom volume control Vibrato Sustain
  • Sync l Fill-In d Stop l Tempo Control Single Finger Fingered Chord
  • One Key Follow
  • Rhythm Programming Function Record& Playback
  • Speaker Output With Microphone

And, I was only expecting a small item. I did not expect it to be almost 30 inches in length. 

I have been a member of Lazada since 29 April 2013 and also a share of minor inconveniences charged to experience as a Lazada patron. Despite that,  I still choose and use the Lazada system for the convenience of shopping online and the availability of items which are sometimes hard to find in shopping malls plus the wide array of items and sellers to choose from.

I wrote this post because this is the first time that I received an item from Lazada without me signing on a piece of paper, literally. I signed on the cell phone or mobile phone of the delivery guy from Ninja Van although he was not riding in a van that time, he delivered using a motorcycle. He also called when he was in front of our place already and also sent a text since I was not able to answer his call because I was sleeping from being a night shift income earner. It was a good thing that he waited for a few minutes and upon reading his text, I immediately woke up and rise and received the Digital Keyboard for my son. It was 10 in the morning.

I guessed Lazada is already using a DocuSign mobile app or any other electronic signature technology and digital transaction management service for their delivery system which is quite efficient and effective. Maybe it was just the Ninja Van courier service since most of the items I received were delivered via LBC, 2Go and Air 21 wherein I still sign a delivery receipt paper.

This is a non-related running post but posted personally without any payment received from Lazada. This is a post from a satisfied Lazada customer like me.

A Very Disappointing Moment in Ingress

240 Days of portal hacking lost with wasted efforts.

Screenshot from my Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime mobile phone

This was written on 4 October 2017 at 23:56 PM, the day I received my graduation photos from Laguna.

I was shocked to see that my current hacking streak was back to ZERO. It was really grueling to see that it was reset to zero. This is the second time that it happened and it was a sad moment. I thought it was just a glitched and I even hacked three portals near our place just to see if there was a glitch, but, to no avail. It was really reset to ZERO.

All the efforts wasted in just a blink of an eye and in a split second. I do not know what happened. I do not want to think about it any more. I immediately researched if other Ingress players had an experience similar to this issue and it is really a happening, a moment of wasted time and efforts in hacking. In my case, I braved the storms and even when I was sick with influenza which was the worst flu I had experience, I still managed to hack. I did my best to hack since the portals are only near us which is almost 330 metres far from our abode.

I will have to do it again for the third time and hopefully the last time of continuous portal hacking. This Sojourner Ingress badge is really the hardest to achieve aside from the Guardian Portal Ingress badge. It’s a continuous effort of portal hacking for 360 days to achieve the Onyx Sojourner Ingress badge while the Onyx Guardian Portal Ingress badge is achievable after 150 days of maintaining a portal with your own deployed resonators.
