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.

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)."

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

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers.

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.
