Tomorrow I leave for the province with the 2 girls. Hubby and boys follow the next day.
I am looking forward to these next 2 weeks in so many ways. First, it’s my in-laws’ 60th wedding anniversary. Big celebration. Lots of guests, Family coming home from abroad. Reunions galore. Food everywhere. Yup, I think I am gonna love this vacation. And maybe, just maybe, I will finally gain some decent weight…..
Of course, the flip side is all the work I need to bring with me since I am in the middle of a systems implementation project which requires decisions, consultations, teleconferences, and so on.
My kumpare Lito (who works for this company I consult for) gave me the 4-1-1 on how I can be up and running and in touch with the project team through my 3G handset (which I got because it looked nice but never went as far as using it to surf the internet).
This is what I went through:
1. Bought a Smart prepaid SIM (Smart only charges P10 for half an hour — like an internet cafe — while Globe charges by kilobyte downloaded, which will quickly empty your load). Loaded P300 on it.
2. Configured my phone’s settings and installed Nokia PC Suite on hubby’s laptop
3. Set up via PC Suite the internet connection so the laptop could recognize my Smart wireless connecton
4. Tested everything by logging onto Smart via laptop and voila! I WAS CONNECTED!
Now, it means I can check email and chat with my project team members either via my 3G mobile or on the laptop, using the mobile as a modem.
Hey! I learned something new!
Also found out that my in-laws’ place is a wi-fi spot. Woohoo!
So maybe I need not say good-bye to all of you because it looks like I could actually get some blogging squeezed in during this vacation. Unless…..I get bogged down practicing (I heard we need to prepare for a program during the dinner celebration!!!).
Oh…and yeah! Guess what else I am lugging along….
MY YOGA MAT!
Hahaha. Hope to do my teacher Pio proud!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, everyone!
