#LoserBoys Christmas Party at Rendezvous Beach Resort in Mactan Cebu

I belong to a special group called #LoserBoys. It is an all-male group and definitely not a boy band. The group is literally what the name suggests, loser boys. Loser in a sense that when the group was created, some of us were single, some heartbroken and most have girlfriends (future wives) working abroad and in some other places in the country. That is, really loser when it comes to our love lives. Haha.

We have been through a lot, we have trekked mountains and taken motorcycle trips around Cebu. We are also sports enthusiasts. The group plays basketball every week and do jogging on some days. I guess this is to divert our attention from having no partners in life. Haha again. By the way, we are all co-workers from the same company.

Anyway, enough about the group. We decided to go to hold our Christmas party in Rendezvous beach resort in Mactan Cebu. The beach is situated in Marigondon. It was an overnight party to really get the best of the beach.

There was no entrance fee. We rented a 1000-peso cottage which is I think good for 20 people. It was big. As soon as we arrived, we prepared food for dinner.

Some lady officemates went with us only to eat food :)

Mark preparing spaghetti.

The food was so abundant.

Dan slicing the grilled pork while we are watching.

Joie checks if it is a clear and even slice.

Some fruits were numbered for the "chinging geps" part

Of course, after preparing the food, comes the best part.

Ahh, the mango float..


was very creamy and yummy..

I was able to take only 2 pictures while eating. I can't be left behind. Even though food was abundant, the mouths to feed were many.

Moments after feeding the stomachs, we did exchanging of gifts. There was an unforgettable twist in this part. Our gifts should be 49.00 - 49.99 Pesos in amount. There were dreadful stories about how we bought our gifts days before. Someone had to go to 3 malls just to find a gift with such amount.

This is me receiving my gift (behind the camera)






I received that angry birds gift from Jee ar

That's a nice hanky Ylonah

Mark received his food-related gift

Ylonah giving her gift to Joniel
Joie with a coffee mug
After that event, we gathered around to sing, tell stories, play Kings game (card) and talk about relationships.

As a habit, I woke up early in the morning to take pictures of the place.

Honda Beat Scooter Review

After using my Honda Beat scooter for a year, I decided to make this review for the benefit of those who are  planning to buy this scooter. I'm not gonna lie, the points you will read below contain more positive statements about this motorcycle simply because I loved it and still loving it. I will try my best to sound unbiased.

[Fixed] Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() Error

I operate a couple of job portals that accept online applications. The applications are sent directly to the employer's email. One day, all of the sites cannot send any applications. I was receiving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() in /home3/boyiboyi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gmail-smtp/google-api-php-client/vendor/guzzlehttp/guzzle/src/Handler/CurlFactory.php on line 78

I am using a 3rd party SMTP management plugin called Gmail SMTP Plugin so I contacted them. They checked the error and said everything was fine on their side. They suggested updating my PHP version.

Solution:

So, I went to the CPanel dashboard in my Hostgator hosting and updated the PHP version from 5.4 to 5.6.

It fixed the error for all of my sites.

How to update the PHP version in Hostgator:

1. Login to your customer portal.
2. Go to Hosting and click on Hosting dashboard
3. Click on manage databases and click Home on the newly opened tab. The class…

Claim Your Google Adsense Earnings Through Unionbank of the Philippines Wire Transfer

I have been receiving Google Adsense earnings through Western Union every month for the past couple of years. This month, days before my scheduled payout, I got a notification from Google to change my payment method from Western Union to a wire transfer. Over the years, I only use my wife's Unionbank account in all my online transaction so I am not sure if I can use it for Google Adsense. I can only try to add it so I did.

I use the form below to add the new payment method. I only filled up the name on the bank account, bank name, SWIFT BIC, and account number.


Unionbank SWIFT BIC UBPHPHMMXXX.
On the date of payout, I received an email from Google that they sent the money already. I was anxious because I am not sure if that would go through the bank. The bank did not notify my wife or anything. 
Usually, with Western Union, I can get the money once they sent the email with the MTCN code. But with the wire transfer, the only thing I can do is wait. One full day after I received the…

Midway Minkay Beach Resort

Wife and I went to Midway Minkay beach resort as part of my birthday celebration. We agreed to go out more often while we don't have kids yet. 
The resort is located in the Municipality of Initao, around a 45-minute bus ride from Iligan city where we live. We took a Rural bus transit with a fare of P85 each person.
The resort staff were friendly and polite. Area was clean and we enjoyed the white sands. We rented a room for two for P1,799 a night with complimentary breakfast. The food was great and there were a lot of amenities that you can enjoy such as renting banana boat, zip line and jet skis. 
Overall, we had an awesome time. I highly recommend the place.
Here is a video I created about the resort. Contact numbers and rates are found in the video.

199Jobs Review

I am always on the lookout for additional income streams especially when it's online and I can earn it from home. Recently, I have discovered 199jobs.com. This is a website where you sell your services for just 199 PHP. If you are familiar with Fiverr, then this, for me, looks like local version of it. This post is my 199jobs review.

I registered to the site and see if I can make some money out of it. Registration is pretty straight forward and if you have an email or a Facebook account, you are good to go.

I am a certified online marketing specialist. So, I listed my service as a website auditor under digital marketing category. You can see my service here.

On the day my listing was published,  I already received my first order. I finished the task within 3 days as promised from my sales copy then notified the buyer and the buyer completed the task on his end. After that, I received my payment of 159 PHP. 199jobs gets 20% of each completed order. That is how they make money.
