The search for the open wireless hotspot

Like most of you with a mobile computer, I’ve been searching the vicinity for an open wireless hotspot so that I could do work. We still don’t have electricity and water at home and we’ve been trying to chansaw the huge mango tree that fell into our garden (pictures to follow).

Luckily I found a wireless hotspot in Mocha Blends BF Paranaque powered by Airborne Access. For some reason, I didn’t have to log into the system anymore with the machine giving me a complimentary session.

Hopefully the power will come back tomorrow.

Ah, did I mention that my home is an open wireless hotspot AND I just baked some lemon meringue pie?

I was able to use my globequest complimentary pass at starbucks walter mart at pasong tamo. Grabe daming tao bringing their laptops and fighting over the power outlets. Fortunately we got power restored around 1 AM on saturday

after getting hit by a tree, scraping my knee, almost getting hit by another tree, i come home to no lights. after almost 36 hours, power came back on and blogging continued.lol

i’m really sorry to hear the news; hope you guys in pinas are a’ight. feel very sad about all the uprooted trees and fallen billboard structures.

er.. maybe if you chainsaw the mango tree just right, you’d get a good stool of a tree trunk?
