CHAMP ! ! !

I smashed my GLOBE prepaid SIM card to pieces because I wasn’t able to control my anger towards a lazy person.

Since my Sony Ericsson W395 cannot operate without a SIM, Mom then lent me her PLDT LL+. I just used it as an alarm clock.

I was contemplating whether to get a GLOBE or a SUN plan. I wanted SUN because it’s much cheaper for getting in touch with a lazy person but most of my contacts use GLOBE — including that lazy person who gave multiple excuses why he’s too lazy churning to SUN. My supervisor advised me to layoff the selfishness and consider practicality. Blergh!

After a month, I subscribed to GLOBE’s My FULLY LOADED Plan. I got the cheapest package and I took the 5th Freebie, which is a “call and text unlimited for 1 GLOBE/TM number” … Of course, I enrolled the lazy person’s number for that freebie. I also got a new phone — the SAMSUNG GT-C3303K a.k.a “SAMSUNG Champ”.

This is my first touchscreen phone and I was told that this is not for impatient people like me. Although, I’m fed up with the usual ones and the W395’s response time is too slow so I thought of giving it a try. I thought I was gonna get the SAMSUNG Corby but I have no qualms getting the Champ as it’s a more recent model and it’s JET BLACK!!!




  • Even though it’s a bit bigger than the W395, it’s still pretty light — maybe even lighter than the W395.
  • The display and everything that comes with it are big enough, which helps because I am myopic.
  • The widgets make it more convenient for me to browse the applications that I frequently use instead of searching from the Main Menu.
  • Multiple alarms! LoL!
  • Contact lists are fully-customizable, just like my previous Nokia N70 (the phone which slipped from my pocket while on my way to work! *sob*)
  • Sending SMS is quite easy and the response time of the touchscreen is much faster than the W395.
  • THE BASS! OMG! Its Media Player has more bass than my Philips GoGear Spark! RAWRRR! The equalizers are preset but the Rock EQ is well-tuned; suitable for my music listening preference.
  • It’s got a 3.5mm headphone jack. I can use my Sennheiser PX100 and FiiO E5 without any special cord required. Hooray!
  • The FM Radio can be played with or without an earbud plugged in. All the other mobile phones I had need the cans plugged in before it works.
  • Battery life is long-lasting — whether idle or used excessively.
  • It’s got a REJECT function. This allows me to block unwanted text messages and calls. XD


  • The camera is only 1.3 Megapixel and the quality is bad.
  • The USB cable is a “rare and expensive kind” … *sob*
  • No WiFi !!!
  • The response time slows down when accessing the Internet.



Absentmindedness . . .

I have been very stupid lately. I lost three of my precious items due to my absentmindedness and I had to shell out a lot of money from my savings account because of it.

The first thing I lost was my Benetton umbrella, which was a year-old gift from Dada. I left it on the taxi I rode going to work. Next, I lost my eyeglasses, which was my remembrance from Teletech. Recently, I lost my N70  when I was also on my way to work. All these happened in a span of  one month!

I am not sure if my lack of sleep, stress with work and/or personal issues had something to do with it, but this sickness (or stupidity if you may put it) caused me so much trouble already.

I bought a new umbrella, this time from a well-known brand called Fibrella. It's a lot more expensive than Dada's gift so I am very careful with it. I am always anxious to have an umbrella in my luggage, but I'd like to keep one because Dada advised me to.

I also bought new eyeglasses from Ideal Vision. The red frame is from HANG TEN. I found out that my myopia has somehow "healed" as I only have 150 graded lenses on both eyes now, as opposed to the 175-150 I had previously.

I also bought a new cellphone — Sony Ericsson W395. It's a walkman phone, with lesser features than the Nokia  N70 but it has a jack that allows me to use my Sennheisser headset [link] and the sound quality is good. This way, I need not to bring my PSP with me, and that's one less bulk in my luggage.

I bought a white wallet from Aika (my co-worker). The brand of the wallet is Ney York & Company and it's worth $16.69 !!!
