Be careful when sharing your credit card information. There are people nowadays, finding ways to get your info and may be do some shopping on your behalf. This may leave you to be Bill Shocked that your card has already been maxed out.
Somebody called me twice already regarding my credit cards, asking if my contact details are still the same. Bad thing is I did not get his name.
The first time a similar like this called from the same company (Metrobank) I told him I was busy. So he said he will call again some other time. This afternoon, I got the call again.
He introduced himself and told me it was just some system check, so I entertained him.
Well, first he asked if my contact details are still the same. I said yes.
Asked if my address is still the same. I said yes.
Asked if I am still using my credit card mastercard. I said no. Literally no because I am using a supplementary card from my mother in law, so all other metrobank principal cards are kept in my locker.
Asked if I am still using my metrobank card. I asked what card? He said the one with the last four digit of *0002 ( I have 3 cards)
I asked what color?
Then he put me on hold.
Then he said my toyota metrobank card. Got him. I do not have a Toyota metrobank card.
Then something struck me. I interrogated him. He knew the last four digits of my card.
He may get my cvv number. I got worried.
he asked if I am still using my metrobank visa card. I said I do not have a visa card. Two inconsistencies. Then he said "ayy wala po? Sige thank you." Then he hung up on me.
This happened to me twice now, Firs is with my Eastwest Bank Credit Card and this is the Second Time. The first time it happened when he wanted me to dictate to him the full credit card number, I hung up on him. This is creepy.
After the call, I reported this immediately to the credit card hotline.

We heard that at night, around 8:00 at night, there is a show at the Victoria Harbour called "A Symphony of Lights". This will be one of the highlights of your visit to Hong Kong, so we made sure we are not going to miss it. We just put on our itinerary that we are going to visit Avenue of Stars and experience A Symphony of Lights in one sitting so a nighttime stroll is advised.
On our Last night in Hong Kong, we walked throughout the Avenue of Stars. It was a cold night but we did not bulge. We were running late from the 8:00 pm show because earlier we went to Sky 100 Observation Deck in ICC.
To see the Symphony of Lights, you have to be on either side of Victoria Harbour. If your hotel is on Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui Area like ours, then going to Avenue of the Stars is one way to view the show. You just walk going to South, then use the underpass. Follow the signs leading to the Avenue of Stars and it will lead you to the correct spot. Although any exit will probably lead there because its a long stretch, its better to start at the end.
If you are going during the night in time for the show, just follow the people from the underpass to the bay walk and you will see they are all going there. After a few minutes of strolling, we found seats and a table, so we just rested there while enjoying the show. We were there on a Tuesday, so the narration was in Mandarin (which we did not understand).
Below is a glimpse of what happened during the Symphony of Lights Show. Due to the noisy people (all foreign tourists like us are strolling, gathering and watching while gossiping), the Song being played with the Lights is hardly audible. Please bear with this video. Enjoy!
