I've had a Metrobank checking account for almost ten (10) years so I've received a few credit card offers through the years. But yesterday's cold call was too bizarre not to blog about.
It started innocuously enough:
Just how rich is Vicki Belo exactly? FYI, the good doctor is a certified billionaire.
Which is why some people reacted when Vicki Belo posted a video during her honeymoon in Italy, playfully "pretending to be rich."
Some people bashed her and her supposedly faux humility and insensitivity, but some praised her work ethic and drive to continue racking up achievements after achievements despite already accomplishing so much.
What struck me about this whole non-issue though was how subjective being and feeling rich actually is.
I would have done this review of Landbank's Mobile Banking app earlier except that my smartphone ran out of internal memory and the external memory I added was useless, so I couldn't download the app. I resigned myself to the fact that I would have to make do with Landbank iAccess using my desktop and really, it wasn't such a bad deal because iAccess addressed most of my banking needs, except for the interbank fund transfer.
But just recently, an officemate downloaded the Landbank mobile app and I was ecstatic to discover that interbank fund transfer was possible using the app! And so I reassessed the existing apps on my phones and deleted the ones I didn't use (I'm talking about you Grab...) and also deleted photos and other nonsense that my phone would automatically save. To make a long story short, I now use the Landbank Mobile Banking app and it has made my banking chores so much easier.
