I was registering for an account at a local auction site (which shall remain nameless), the zip code combo box threw me off:

It’s actually displaying the ZIP codes of locations in Quezon City in

alphabetical order. I think the dev forgot to put the location name somewhere

there e.g.

Alicia (1105)

Amihan (1102)

Apolonio Samson (1106)

and so on…

I’m still wondering how 801 got there, though.

Googled “manila zip codes”. First hit has ZIP codes per municipality, arranged

by location alphabetically.

Wala lang… nakakabobo kasi pag-draft ng prototypes. Tinopak ako last week at

linagay ko lahat ng country + country code sa mga country code dropdown list

ng screens ko instead of just putting 5-10 country codes. Kaya yun, familiar

yung pattern sa combo box sa pic sa taas.
