Issues Upgrading from Blogger Classic Template to New Blogger

This forsaken blog is currently being upgraded to New Blogger Template, something I shoul've done a long time ago in the Jurassic Age. After the completion and inclusion of all required scripts, I will also upgrade my main travel blog Was thinking of re-focusing this blog to IT and Information Security, my field of expertise. Am too busy though :(

My Online Shopping and Customs Tax, Delivery Experience

I ordered a car On Board Diagnostics (OBD) from an online shopping website in China where I got the tool for $17.00 plus $19 shipping fee from FedEx (yes, the shipping is more expensive than the item) but the item is not available here nor it a similar tool is too expensive) I paid for the item using my Paypal accout, part of my earnings for my profitable main travel blog (than this pathetic and almost forgotten blog due to my lack of time) WHen FedEx called me up, I was informed that Philippine Bureau of Customs is charging me $30 as import duty or tax on my purchase, I simply mentioned that they can have my item, I don't want to pay such tax on improperly assessed tax. I have no issues paying taxes as long as it's fair but this one's just so like a highway robbery. I wonder if I can also do the same with Ali Express via DHL for my solar power needs

Olympus Camera Service Center: Red Dot Manila Contact Number

If you're looking for latest information on Olympus digital camera repair like me, but only to buy a USB data cable for my Olympus Tough TG-2 IHS, try to call Red Dot Philippines at the following numbers Red Dot Philippines 1817 EspaƱa Blvd., corner Prudencio St., Sampaloc, Manila, 1008 Philippines Telephone Number: +63.2.708.9282 Fax : +63.2.522.7079 but the problem is that nobody's answering the damn contact number. I only need to inquire the price of the USB cable and if they have it I'm familiar with the place as I lived in Sampaloc, Manila for 10 years, college days and early corporate life. How to get there: From MRT Quezon Avenue, Cubao, GMA, Kamuning or North EDSA, just board a jeepney going to Quiapo and alight at the corner of Espana and Prudencio. from LRT Taft, take jeepneys going to Quezon City (Cubao, Project 3-2, Project 6/SM, Fairview, Project 8), alight at the corner of Espana and Vicente Cruz, then cross to the other side.
