Why Filipinos Should Boycott CDR King’s Low Quality Products

What, Where, Why, How
It is no secret to all Filipinos who use a computer and electronic accessories that CDR King is the master of piracy and imitation. Its products are made from industrial wastes and garbage so there is almost zero quality. CDR King sells products that are 100% China-made. I am a direct victim of this horrendous company, not only by receiving useless products but also in dealing with their undisciplined, lazy, disorganized customer service. Worst Customer Service I and my two co-workers visited the CDR-King store inside SM Sta. Rosa to buy an earphone needed for our presentation.

Since Globe put a cap on my Internet speed today, I can’t do my normal chores online. I left nothing but to rant and express my frustrations here and there. I can’t even open a website in 2 minutes.

Why I Stopped Supporting Duterte

Why I Stopped Supporting Duterte

Philippines, What, Where, Why, How
As a small business owner and somewhat influential in our small community, at least fifty of my friends and acquaintances decided to vote the then Mayor and Presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte, after talking to them personally. I think Duterte’s uniqueness and unorthodox style is what made me liked him, and the fact that he is not connected to any national politician who has a track record of corruption, I liked him even more.
