Server gets fired for posting Peyton Manning’s credit card number

Oh noh! This is bad! A server was fired after posting Peyton Manning’s last 4-digit credit card number after he has given good tip.

According to the restaurant’s head, the server shouldn’t post the last 4-digit credit card number of Peyton Manning even if he received a good tip from him. The server violated the restaurant’s privacy policy.

The image above was Peyton Manning’s bill but his 4-digit credit card number was already blurred.

Well, who could ever thought that for the server, the tip of Manning could be his last service provided in that restaurant? The server should better check online affiliate programs for him to have a work and can earn.

Sinulog 2012 — FREE WiFi in Cebu City

Days before the Sinulog 2012 grand parade, I’ve already read a post from a Cebu-based blogger friend regarding the Free WiFi access in Cebu City.

Sinulog 2012 -- FREE Wifi in Cebu CitySinulog 2012 — FREE WiFi in Cebu City

Indeed, there were areas in Cebu City during the grand parade and the celebration of Sinulog 2012 where WiFi access was free. These areas were Gorordo to Fuente Osmeña Circle, General Maxilom Avenue, Osmeña Boulevard, selected areas in North Bacalso Avenue and P. del Rosario, Cebu City Hall, Provincial Capitol, the Cebu City Sports Center, Magellan’s Cross and Plaza Independencia.

According to PLDT, the WiFi provider, this is yet the first outdoor FREE WiFi access made available.

Noontime Fire in Cebu City

Could you believe that in my fourteen months of stay here in Cebu City I personally saw more than ten fire events just in the city itself?

The worst thing among all? It was the fire just 100 meters away from my apartment last June 2011. The fire happened early morning around 1:00 AM. Next to that fire event were those two different fire events happened around the vicinity of our school, from the nearby houses of Southwestern University along Urgello Street. The first fire even where a part of our school – the Maritime College building was put into fire happened last year, if I still have the correct figures, it happened around August 2010 last year. And the latest fire event in school was still on June 2011 where in the Natural Science College was also burnt.

The very latest fire even I saw was yesterday noontime. Just timely when I about to check the ATM of  the Land Bank of the Philippines along P. del Rosario Street, huge black to gray colored smoke was almost to cover the whole are of the street due to the very recent fire. I didn’t know where exactly the fire was, I’m not really particular and certain with the streets in Cebu City yet. But I took a shot of the smoke.

Pardon with my image here. It’s not really that of good quality compared to images taken by a digital camera. I just made use of my iPad camera in taking that image. Rest assured, nothing edited on that image but just the watermarks.

Accordingly, one of the main reasons why there are fire events happening in Cebu City is because of the poor electrical wiring management along those crowding small houses wherein the owners are into renting businesses and even making internet cafes available for students. There, in fact, no surface raceways for cables and wires on there houses. I guess, this is one point which the government should put an eye on to.

No ID; No ENTRY!

I was trying to help my online buddy looking for enduro magicard online. I actually don’t have any idea what is it up until she even redirected me to Rio 2e Card Printer. Thence, I was able to read some info about it and even remembered stuffs ain’t so good things about my identification card that I wanted to reproduce in a very instant way using any printer.

Having an identification card or any document upon entering any school premises is a must. In school, almost every entrance gate, even in the school’s hospital entrance gate for as long as it is a student coming in the school, ID is asked to present.

One sunny noon, when I and two other classmates went back to school after our clinics in one of the government hospitals here in Cebu City, when two student policemen asked us where were our school IDs. I told the one who asked us that by just merely wearing our medical school’s uniform and a name plate, off course, with our name on it, it’s enough proof to let everybody knew that we are a bonafide student of such institution and we are allowed to enter the school premises anytime. However, that two student policemen didn’t allowed us to enter the school. I explained to them clearly as I could. But they insisted.

Since that moment was really hot, I mean, the weather dumped some more intensity in my head added to the fact that we were all feeling hungry and exhausted from the hospital, my voice’s tone went up. I told them, sarcastically, if they want me to print an ID  in front of them at that moment bringing for them some printers like pronto card printer or what just for them to know and see that we have are IDs.  Our IDs, actually, were just inside in our wallets. When we showed those to them, they even demanded more like wanting us to wear those. Ah oh! When I heard that statement, I really asked them if they were just making fun of us. And I told them that whether they want it or not, we will really enter the school.

The two policemen have had nothing to do but just staring at us walking far away from them going to our college building.

Jobs in Cebu City

Sometimes, when I am feeling boredom inside my room and only my medical books, medical school stuffs and my desktop computer are what I could always see, I thought of looking for any jobs here in Cebu City that fit for me.

Every Sunday, what I used to do is to buy a local newspaper here in Cebu City to look for jobs available. However, I seldom find jobs applicable for Bachelor of Science in Biology graduate. Instead, jobs for mechanical engineers are flooding. In a page or two of that local newspaper here, one could surely read and check an ad for mechanical engineers available for fresh graduates and for those with job-related experiences as well. Even a part time jobs for BS Biology graduates, I prefer a part time job because of my medical schooling, almost always no jobs available to such.

Do this means that I don’t need a job even a part time one? Or maybe, mechanical engineers are just in-demand for now? I don’t know.
