WalterMart Free WiFi and Movie Tickets

The WalterMart at Pasong Tamo corner Pasay road is one of my hang-out places (the Starbucks shop at the ground floor being my part-time office and business meeting place).

Just working the afternoons here at Starbucks, Walter Mart (at the corner of Pasay Road and Don Chino Roces Ave.,) This branch offers Globe WiZi (WiFi Zone) instead of the usual Airborne Access (so AA is not really exclusive to Starbucks, huh?). However, I sniffed thru 4 other wifi connections and […]

Leaving Georgetown

We’re about to leave Georgetown here at the heart of Penang. Next stop is Singapore for a couple nights of tours and sight-seeing. The stay in in Penang, Malaysia has been the best so far of my entire trips out of the country. Free wifi hotspots everywhere I can even sniff out a couple from […]

Been over a week now that everytime I hang out at Greenbelt 3, I get this feeling that Airborneaccess’ (AA) wifi service is slowly fading away from the area. If you’ve been to Seatlle’s Best, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Figaro and Starbucks around this area, you’ll see good signal reception from GlobeQuest but AA […]
