PLDT: We’ll Maintain Sun’s Unlimited Services

Whew. I thought the worst would happen. Sun Cellular will continue to offer unlimited voice and text services even after PLDT completes its investment in Digitel Inc., Sun’s parent company.

At least the unlimited text and calls will still continue. I thought that clients will be in a pinch when this happened because I feared the unlimited service will be scrapped.

And considering that there will only be two major players in the telecom mobile business, I figured they can scrap that unlimited service because even then, clients have no choice.

I read in the Inquirer that earlier this week, top officials of PLDT and JG Summit Inc. had signed an agreement under which PLDT will acquire JG Summit’s shareholdings and other economic interests in Digitel for the sum of P69.2 billion.

Whew, that is a mighty big sum. Anyway … I am just glad that the unlimited service still stands. It is what made me subscribe to them in the first place.

This is good news indeed! What do you think? Share your thoughts.

Japanese Ingenuity

Japan was badly struck by the strong earthquake and it left most places damaged. However, this strip of road took Japanese engineers to fix in 6 days. I forgot where I got this source but I just had to share this with you all.

This stretch of the Great Kanto Highway was completely destroyed by the 9.0 earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan.

Crews from highway repair company NEXCO started to repair the damage on March 17th. By the end of the day on March 23rd, the road was open to traffic and looking good as new. I’d say, that is Japanese ingenuity. I sure would love to have them come over to our country and fix the roads here.

Singapore Team In Hot Water Over Hot Swim Trunks

The government of Singapore rebuked its national men’s water polo team last week for designing and wearing “inappropriate” swim trunks at the Asian Games held in Guangzhou, China.

The red trunks featured a crescent moon on the crotch area with 5 stars on the side, a design similar to that of the conservative city-state’s national flag.

The trunks sparked a controversy both in Singapore’s local media and the Internet, particularly over the “suggestive” positioning of the crescent moon over the male genitals.

Singapore’s Ministry of Information does have a point about this. Check out the YouTube video below to see for yourself.
