Vibal Publishing Foundation will be publishing an iPad version of Dr. Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere starting July 1. With this new ebook version, Vibal Publishing will try to revive the public interest regarding the powerful novel that sparked the Spanish revolution in the Philippines more than a century ago.

Noli Me Tangere  is a novel about the tragic love story of Crisostomo Ibarra and Maria Clara, a childhood sweetheart whose love was broken by circumstances created by the corruption in the clergy and government during the Spanish Rule in the Philippines.

The book was originally written in Spanish and has been translated to both Filipino and English. Interestingly, the iPad version of the ebook can be read on both languages.

Pricing and Availability
The ebook will be available on iTunes Bookstore starting July 1. There is no disclosure yet as to the pricing.

Will the interest regarding this old masterpiece be renewed when it is made available on modern gadgets? Hopefully yes! And if the "Noli" for iPad will be a success, surely its more intense sequel, the El Filibusterismo or just "El Fili" will be released. Are you excited about this? Well, honestly, I am.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1.

This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for Replacement of Passbook This can be a simple replacement of the lost passbook but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes.

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.

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.

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
