If you want information about personal finance, you can easily key in any money related keyword to Google or Yahoo search and the list of result would be astoundingly long. Yes, personal finance advice is one of the most popular topics in the web. And because of its extreme popularity, you will surely find it hard to sort out which ones are credible and which ones were applicable to your situation.


Now, with respect to personal finance in context to the Philippine setting, I found this blog really useful and practical. I was referring to the blog by Francisco J Colayco published through GMA news website. For those who don't know Mr. Colayco, he is the author of the bestselling book series "Wealth Within Your Reach - Pera Mo, Palaguin Mo!” He is also an experienced business man and regularly conducts seminars on personal finance. He is also the chairman of Colayco Foundation for Education which aims to increase Filipinos' literacy regarding personal finance.

What I personally like about his blog (and also in his books) is that it was especially made in the context of the Filipino culture. The topics discussed in his blog are surprisingly interesting and practical even to those who don't know much about financial matters.

Aside from his blog, you can also visit Colayco Foundation's website.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
