Excellent Security Guards at UP Ayala Land Technohub

I would like to commend the security guards at UP Ayala Land Technohub. Some of them still do the routine polite greetings like 'Good morning!' or 'Good evening!'. Some of them are also very gentlemanly. When I get off work at ridiculous times of the day, and I go to Commonwealth Avenue to wait for a bus, they actually do helpful things that are probably not part of their job description. One time when I got off work at about 5:30am, one guard actually did the waving at a bus for me and I was able to ride one fast. Another time, it was very very late, around 12:50am, no one else was around apart from one guard assigned at the gate, he actually went near me as if to accompany me as I wait for the next bus. Things like this are quite touching especially when you just had a truly long day at the office. I thank God for people like them.

UP Ayala Land Technohub Yellow Cab Office Party

So we finally had that send-off! We ordered 2 large Yello Cab pizzas - the 4 Seasons and the New York Style. All for P1600+! Yello Cab Pizza in UP Ayala Land Technohub now accepts credit cards. And we also had ice cream and drinks from the UP Ayala Land Technohub MiniStop. Food and stories make quite a send-off! I'm quite sure it's a happy memory for our workmate. Well, all right. Hopefully. :)

Yellow Cab Pizza for a Simple Office Party at UP AyalaLand Technohub

Hello, how have you been lately? :)

As for us, we're planning a simple send-off for a teammate who's leaving the company in a few days. We're thinking of having Yellow Cab pizza. It tastes good, it can be bought nearby, and it can be shared by many. :) The plan is not final yet. It's quite difficult to organize an event where the attendees are all busy. But then again, we all have time for what we want to do right?

Anyways, if you want to check out Yellow Cab Pizza at UP AyalaLand Technohub, here's the contact number to call: 441-2222. Their website says that it is 24-hours open and accepts cards. I say, better to call first, if you are able to, just to be sure with those claims. :)

Have a great week! :)

Switch Apple Store and Globe Telecom at UP AyalaLand Technohub

Someone told me that her friend was renewing her Globe Telecom post-paid plan. Renewing post-paid plans with Globe Telecom is interesting as you can get a new phone for free or for a huge discount. So this friend wanted a Samsung Omnia but since the Globe Telecom shop she went to did not have stocks of the Samsung Omnia, the shop gave her an iPhone instead!

You see, we have a Globe Telecom post-paid plan. There's a Globe Telecom store at UP Ayala Land Technohub. There's also a Switch Apple Store there. All I need to do is visit these stores and do some shopping! Er fishing. Err window shopping for now. :)

A Love-Hate Relationship with UP Ayala Land Technohub

I have a love-hate relationship with my work location. I have said before how I love working at UP Technohub and how it pisses me off everytime I go home. Guess what, yesterday Monday, the area was well lit! Praises to the planners of the Technohub!

Now, if there will only be designated loading and unloading areas - one for buses, one for jeepneys, one for vans, that should be so fine.

What I Do Not Like About UP Ayala Land Technohub

I love working at UP Ayala Land Technohub. But there is one thing that really pisses me off. I think that UP Technohub is sooooo not bus-commuter-friendly. It does not have designated loading and unloading areas.

This is what happens when I go home from work every workday. It usually is around 7pm. I go out of Technohub through the middle gate. That is gate 2 I believe. I need to ride a bus. The area is toooooooo dark!!! If I wear dark-colored outfits, the bus drivers will never see me. So I try to wear light-colored attires. As there are no designated loading and unloading areas, wherever I stand, jeepneys, vans, and cabs go loading or unloading. Drivers of these smaller vehicles also always stop by me thinking I will ride their vehicles. So, when the buses pass by, even if I use all my God-given abilities to wave and catch the attention of the bus driver, they do not see me!! How can they see me when I am blocked by all the jeepneys, vans, and cabs?!! Buses usually use the middle lanes. They do not go to the outer lanes unless they see a passenger waving their hands like crazy. Sometimes, even if they see me waving like hell, they still don't stop. It's too late to swerve to the outer lane and stop given their momentum. Besides who would have thought that someone needs a ride in that very, very, very dark area?!

So I usually wait an average of 30minutes before I miraculously catch a bus. Most of the time, I am able to get a ride because a bus is unloading a passenger so it has to stop, and so I can run to the bus and thank heavens that that part of my day is finally over.

Effective lighting of the area would be truly appreciated.
