Last November 16, 2008 my huge box for Pinas was picked up by an agent of Star Kargo (AbS-Cbn). I was used to send my box with Forex because I can track it down in there website. But this time the agent said that he is into Star Kargo and so I switch. Christmas and New Year came and gone still no box. But before Christmas I called there customer service and after New Year too but still I only be answered they couldn't track the package yet hmmp! So I tried to reasoned out to myself that it might be because of the holiday that the package is not yet there in Manila. So I stretched out my patience and let the weeks passed. Yesterday, I called the agent because I already wondered how come the box is not yet delivered where the heck is my box?? I found out that the SKIL # that is in my receipt is not the SKIL # that the agent had. I was already started to be pissed off but choose to be calmed (inhaleeeee exhaleeeee!!) After I talked to the agent I called the number that he gave me and I found out that it is another agent from Chicago and he told me that the box arrived in Philppines December 10!!!! Again this agent gave me another phone number that I have to call to confirm and that is the STar Kargo customer service! I didn't say anything to this agent that I knew their customer service number by heart since November 2008. Still I have to keep calm and recollect myself because the lava is already ready to be spewed!! After I talked to this agent in Chicago, I called their customer service number and answered all the information she needed. But ended up telling me that I had to call back after two hours because Manila office is not yet open at that time Grrrrrr!! So I waited for two long hours and called again. This time the woman who answered was able to locate the box and told me that the box is already in our town and it will be delivered 1 or two days!! Geezzz! AFter more than 2 months and 8 days the box is not yet physically delivered in our door step. And so therefore, with my experienced with ABS-CBN STAR KARGO??? I rated them -5, thumbs down , very poor service!!
--Yesterday, hubby and me attended the funeral service of our friends baby girl who died last Saturday. The baby just barely lived for 2 hours. After the service we went to Cathys father in laws house for a small luncheon.
-- Last night my favorite tv series LOST premieres their 5th season. I am so over gaga about this tv show that I watched the whole 1st, 2nd and 3rd season in just one setting.
-- Today I am kind of busy though because I am recapping the last 4 season episodes on the ABC.com website here on my laptop. So got to go friends be back later.
Woke up today around 8:30 in the morning. I felt like not going to the church but I remember that today is the celebration of the Baptism of Our Lord Jesus. So I prepared myself and eat my breakfast. I tried to woke up hubby but he seems that he is so deep in his slumber hehe. So I just whispered his ear that we will be going to church at 10 am miraculously he nodded lol. The mass was completed at 11:30 am and we left the church and went to Nuggets resto at Oxford to have our brunch. After our brunch we went to Lapeer to visit Uncle Willard and Aunt Mary after staying there for quite a while we went to visit hubbys cousin Bernard and Marcy. It was dark when we leave their house, I told my honey that we have to stopped by at Wal-Mart for some grocery shopping so we did and left Lapeer around 7:30pm. That was our activities for today and I am kind of tired and sleepy but have to watched movie first before hitting the hay.
So here we are starting to spend our time and days with the New Year. The night before New Year hubby and me were watching movies and when it was almost 12 midnight we hopped in bed and just watched Fox news live in New York. Hubby dozed to sleep immediately while I stayed a little bit trying to find a good channel other than then news. Finally, I slept and waked the next day feeling sleepy though. I immediately told hubby that we have to go to church to attend the mass at 10:00 am. What can we do for the first day in the year but to attend mass right? So we were at the church a little bit early but it was worth the time, I am so happy that we started the day and year at mass can't beat that.
After mass, we immediately went at Lanie and Johns house for a new year dinner with us is rowena and her husband henry and the little girl Ashley. We stayed there for at least 5 hours chatting, catching up things since I haven't been to so many parties for the past few months since Doreen got sick and died. So, so many things to catched up though. From Lanies we stopped by at my step-sons house and stayed for awhile chit-chatting with his son.
Last, January 1 too is my niece 19th year birthday. Hayyyy parang kailan lang, we were at the waiting room at the hospital, and her mother was laboring, tears rolled down her cheeks, I could see the face of my sisters face I also cried lol. When she came out and the nurse showed her to us I was just so happy, I said to myself here is my first niece, I am going to love her and spoiled her. Though I didn't spoiled her that much but I do loved her so much like my very own.
My prayer is that this year will be a very good year inspite of the economic crises we are experiencing now. As hubby always said " I haven't seen like this economic crunch like this one" but we have to trust in God and put ourselves in Gods economy. Happy New Year to all and thank you for the wonderful time of 2008.
Again, watching my backyard birds this morning. And as I was watching a small cutie pie Bluebird passed the window. I grabbed my camera and ...
