How Much Does It Cost For a Day Trip In Bohol?

Bohol, in my opinion, is one of the best tourist spot in the Philippines. It is home to many natural beauties like mountains, rivers, forests and animals. Not to mention, the people of Bohol are warm and friendly. So, if you want a real good time, to relax, chill out and forget the busy life at the Metro, then Bohol is one of the top choices.

I personally recommend you to stay in Bohol for at least two days and one night to have the most of it. But since most people are busy, you can just have a bite of Bohol's beauty by having a day tour around the island. Here are some destinations in a typical Bohol Day Tour and how much is the cost per each stop.

1. Sagbayan Peak
Sagbayan Peak is a small park located on top of a high land. You can see a view of the surrounding places and some chocolate hills visible in the area. At the entrance to Sagbayan peak, there are also "tarsiers" that you can view.

2. Chocolate Hills on Carmen
Bohol is most famous for this natural beauty. Chocolate Hills are mountainous formations scattered around Bohol. The shape of Chocolate Hills are most intriguing since they are very smooth and rounded. Take a look at these pictures and you can easily see the strangeness of this creation.

5. Loboc Zip Line

6. Loboc Floating Restaurant
This is one of the coolest part of Bohol Day Tour. This is an eat-all-you-can restaurant cruising back and forth along Loboc river. They are serving local delicacies fitting for a great lunch and dinner. Also, while eating,  there's a band that will serenade you with refreshing music.

8. Blood Compact Monument
This is just a monument built at the sea side of Tagbilaran  featuring a blood compact between early Filipino leaders and the early Spanish explorers who visited the Philippine islands.
Entrance Fee: NONE/FREE

The above places is just for a one-day tour. If you want to enjoy Bohol even more, you can still have the Danao Tour, and an overnight stay in one of the resorts in the Bohol island of Panglao.

Vehicle rental varies from 2500 to 3500 pesos depending on how good you are in bargaining. :-)

TIP: Do not arrange for a reservation for a vehicle. Just go to Bohol, via Tagbilaran Air/Sea Port or via Tubigon Port. There are many unreserved vehicles there and that's a perfect opportunity to bargain since they will be bidding for your rental.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part 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 known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
