NAIA Terminal 1 Improvements Underway

001-NAIA1NAIA Terminal 1. Image via WikipediaAfter being highlighted twice as one of the worst airport in the world, the 30-year old Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 is now being renovated. The renovation includes both structural and aesthetic improvement to the facility.

Interactive travel website The Guide to Sleeping in Airports (http://www.sleepinginairports.net/) ranked NAIA Terminal 1 as the worst airport in the world citing its poor facilities, bribery and security concerns as the main problems facing the old terminal.

Also, the recently published CNN article entitled "World's 10 most hated airports" ranked NAIA Terminal 1 as the 5th in the worldwide scale.

The flood of criticism that brought NAIA Terminal 1 to the limelight have prompted the Office of the President to act swiftly and make quick improvements. President Noynoy Aquino himself conducted a surprise visit to the airport just to make sure that the improvements are going well.

  1. The Philippine government must also look into slums within, near and around the premises/areas of Terminal 1, 2, 3 and 4.

    They better start relocating them as they are really eyesores and these places are nesting areas of criminals and lawless elements considering they are near the country's airports.

    The approach in renovating these airports must be holistic as what Architect Palafox and Mr. Manuel Pangilinan have both been suggesting.

    Have they thought of free shuttle bus services within these airports?

    By the way, the toilets are quite small - they have to on Singapore Changi and Hongkong International airport - their toilets are clean, spacious (you can bring in trolleys inside the toilet cubicles)and smell good.
    Toilet cleaners there appropriately maintains the cleanliness of toilets similar to first class malls.

    God bless the Philippines

  2. Suggestions:

    -Airport staff/officials must stop from taking pictures/videos, signing for autographs from foreign/local celebrities inside the airport.

    -More information booths/tourists information booths.

    -Hotel bookings for all hotels must be placed in one long counter (manned by 4 to 5 personnel)similar to Changi International Airport.

    God bless the Philippines.

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!

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. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link 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 la
