6 Reasons Why Aquaria Water Park is the Ultimate Getaway Destination This Summer

We all know that Batangas is one of the go-to places of us who wants to enjoy basking under the sun and experience the beach. In my entirety, I've only been to Batangas just once or twice. JUST ONCE OR TWICE. Highlighting this one because I've lived in the south since forever yet I wasn't able to take lots of moments to appreciate this wonderful city known for its beaches from side to side.

Few weeks ago, I haven't thought on how this summer's going to be since I got busy with work. I'm kind of clueless how to pull-off this year's summer since I didn't plan of going to the beach nor go somewhere to get a nice tan. (What a loser, right?)

Spex Appeal Fixed My Broken iPhone 6 Screen

Saturday, April 9, 2016

I just experienced every iPhone owners' worst nightmare: a broken iPhone screen



To share with you the backstory on how my iPhone screen cracked, there are chips between the two ends of the gorilla glass that connected when I accidentally dropped my phone. The funny thing about this, I dropped it on my plate while devouring on s'mores. Yes, s'mores. (spell s-t-u-p-i-d-i-t-y) Also, I'm guilty of not using a shockproof phone case which lead to more damage for my phone.

I tried asking for Power Mac's support regarding this matter. Over the phone, they told me that I would need to shell out Php 18,000 for a new iPhone 6 unit to be replaced for 3 to 4 weeks. Insane!
