message sent

cook text cook again.i don't know how often we get to see "message sent" in our cellphone. in the Philippines alone it looks like about 80% of the working Filipinos already have cellphone because i learned that you can now buy a second hand cellphone for as low as P500 or $12 and you can find loading stations almost everywhere.

As a Filipino, I'm truly glad about the development and introduction of the cellphone into our country. It freed millions of our countrymen from having access to a phone, no thanks to PLDT's horrendous record of installing landlines.

As long as people stay safe while using the cellphone or sending text messages, I'm all for it.

Luke said...

I text a lot too. very nice shots!

jericho said...

De Lyzius said...

Dra. Rio said...

redlan said...

kahit mga tindera sa bangketa daig pa ako sa paggamit ng cellphone. What if message sending failed? hehehe. punta lang ng loading area at magpaload gaya ng babaeng model mo. hehe

I was surprised to see almost every Filipino having a cellphone, some even have a few!

But I don't like to carry a cellphone and I dislike it when we are having dinner or at meetings and people are texting away. Couldn't they stop for a moment and have a decent meal?

bid yan said...

panaderos, text messaging helped us a lot in terms of immediate communication. but i hope people will not change the personal mode of communication which requires presence and quality time.

luke, that's nice to know. thanks.

jericho, thanks.

dave, hahaha... addict texter ka pala sa dalawang network pa.

hi de_lyzius, that's true. hehehe... i also observed that.

hi doc rio, sino sino naman yang mga tinetext mo? hehehe... at least nakakatext na yang cellphone mo kahit pwede ng ipangkaso sa sasakyan.

redlan, true! they are buying high end used cellphones.

tama ka dyan. punta na kaagad sa loading station.

eastcoastlife, more and more people buy two cellphone to be able to avail multi-network promos. while some people use two cellphones, one for personal use and the other for business.

that's one of the problems today. people need to learn cellphone ethics.

hi bid yan, naku dami pala kayong mga text addict. may blog na may text pa. hehehe...

yung iba nga talaga sa kanila mas high end pa ang cellhone. astig!

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

It's such a common everyday thing that it would be strange to see someone actually using a pay phone these days.

mimi said...

wow!! as in 500php?

ngayon ko lang nalaman un!

Lalaine said...

texting while cooking ang tindera... multi tasking... hehehe.... kapag swerte ka... bka may makuha ka pang mas mababa sa 500... hehehe

the donG said...

hi karen, yes. people usually use the pay phone as a second option or for landline calls in the business. more and more people learn to use mobile technology even surfing the net.

hi mimi, yes. sometimes even cheaper but these are used and old models of cellphone.

hi lalaine, multi-tasking nga. usually the tinderas in bangketas best portrays multi-tasking and multi-product selling.

Antoine Greg Flores said...

iba na talaga mga trend ng celphones ngaun nuh..!

pero nasa tao lang yan kung marunong sila magpahalaga ng mga gamit na yan.

Dakilang Islander said...

ang nakakatawa yung iba na nagpretend na super busy sa text pero wla lang pala...heheh may nahuli kc ako nyan eh....

dati ang bilis ko mgtxt memorize ko na keypads pero grabi sobrang bagal. pareho lng kc charge ng text at calls dito kaya tawag nlang

Abaniko said...

For most Pinoys, texting has become a pastime. Good thing there's unli.

the donG said...

greg, dami mo na palang cellphone. i only had 4 since college and i only changed my number once because my third phone was stolen.

salamat. keep in touch.

dakilang islander, ayos pala dyan. walang use ang text messaging. what a great place.

kung may mga nag-aasume na nagtetext malamang may nag-aasume din na may kausap. hehehe...

abaniko, tama. para na ngang spam kung minsan ang ibang text messages.

KRIS JASPER said...

things were simpler b4... now, phones are getting complicated...
but i love it.

yeahred2 said...

I'm a certified Textus Addictus! LOL. And yes, there are mobile phones worth P500. Nokia 3210 yata 'yun. Hehe.

SandyCarlson said...

I respect people who can text! I can't do it at all. This guy's ability to cook and write at the same time is great, but greater was your discovery of it! Very funny.

God bless.

kingdaddyrich said...

once, philippines was dubbed as the texting capital of the world. ewan ko lang kung hanggang ngayon eh ganon pa rin. sa pilipinas lang kasi ata may unlimited texting service ang mga giant networks.

at dahil sa modernization na yan, maraming pagbabago ang naganap sa kinaugaliang pamumuhay ng mga pinoy. may mga advantage at disadvantage.

Heart of Rachel said...

So true, many Filipinos from all walks of life have cellphones. It has become a necessity for many. Even kids have cellphones already. My 8 year old niece has one. :)

Dra. Rio said...

nirereplyan ko lang yung suncellular updates..hehehe
nasa byahe kana noh? kaya wala kang bagong post?? ingat! yung pasalubong kong combo 3 ng mcdo ha...lols!

acey said...

wow, P500 cellphones here? wow!

the donG said...

jasper, yes it is indeed getting complicated but with new features we can enjoy it more.

red2, didn't know that term. hehehe... ok so let's call addict texters textus addictus.

hi sandy c, that's multi-tasking in the third world. thanks!

you can't send a text but i assume you use your cellphone for calling.

kingdaddyrich, hindi ko alam kung tayo pa din. pero tama ka nga since maraming mga unlimited text promos malamang tayo pa din.

marami na nga ring naging pagbabago kasi dati ang gamit ng cellphone for communication lang, ngayon pati sa mrt pwede na rin gamitin ang globe at smart access. plus meron na ring mobile money. pero marami nga lang ding disadvantage like instant message na "ok lang" na hindi mo alam kung sa anong extent. hehehe...

hi rachel, tama. i wonder when will yohan be given a cellphone. hehehe...

hi doc rio, wala pa. nandito pa ako sa manila. i'm leaving may 22. sigurado na yang cheese burger mo with dangit. hehehe...

hi acey, yes. but it's usually a second hand old model cellphone. kung minsan nga parang mga nakaw pa. wag naman sana.

bw said...

That's an amazing price - unbelievable !

Maya said...

i think, its nice to have cell phone, so thatwe could easily contact others.
But on how they used it or even bothered to have a new model as their little bling-bling is something that i don't understand specially when we know they don't even have a decent plate on their table.
This is not the subject but can't help saying it,Dong.

you bet, only my mom is trying to resist having a cellphone even if i'm willing to give her one :-) you'll feel the real importance of cellphones in the more remote places where putting out telephone lines would be next to impossible.

without a doubt, cellphones have changed the way we live. but with the good, there's also the bad. it has given rise to crimes, also threats and bullying via text, scams, etc. it has also taken over our collective sense of ethics -- people text even in church; people fight thru texting instead of talking; people would rather fiddle with their phones rather than carry a decent conversation.

the donG said...

bw, hehehe... yes. but it's usually a second hand old model cellphone. kung minsan nga parang mga nakaw pa. wag naman sana.

hi maya, you have a point. i hope they use it for important communications and not just for leisure.

oggie, you're right. i hope that people won't be too dependent with the cellphone in terms of communication because sometimes they do text messaging instead of meeting their families' friends personally. this is very critical when they handle problems and it's difficult when you do it through texting.
