Noynoy's First Paycheck as Philippines' CEO

Mr. Noynoy AquinoImage via Wikipedia
We all take a close look at our personal salaries, earnings or allowances. And admit it or not many of us always complain about it. Here are some common complaints.

It's too small!
It's not enough for me and my family.
How can I budget this?
I'm underpaid.
I worked hard for this?
How can I possibly live with this amount?
The tax is too big!

The list is definitely longer than this. Yes, salary is one of the hottest and most controversial human inventions and it has always been like that since the beginning.

Now, let's shift our focus to the latest topic in the world of Pinoy money. Early this evening, we saw in the news, a picture of a powerful man holding his first paycheck. This powerful man is none other than our very own President Benigno 'Noynoy' Aquino Jr. How much did he earn on first month of being employed as the chief executive of the Philippines? As we saw in the news, he got a net salary amounting to 63, 000 pesos. His gross salary is just above 100, 000 pesos and as some of us already know, this is significantly higher compared to his predecessor (thanks to the previous president for passing an Executive order increasing the salary of public officials).

Now, is that big or small? If you will be hired to his position, will you accept the job?

Just a funny thought from a simple blogger! You may or you may not take this seriously :-)

  1. Underpaid, lol.

    With so many problems a President encounter. 1-million pesos/day should be the salary.

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
