Cebu Pacific To Take on Long-Haul Flights by Q3 2013

Cebu Pacific has announced that they are will be taking on the long-haul flights starting on the third quarter of 2013. The company will be leasing 8 new Airbus A330-300 aircraft capable of up to 11 hours of non-stop flight. 

The largest airline in the country also said that the new planes will allow them to lower down the long-haul fares by as much 35% lower than what other airlines are offering. On seat sale promos, the figure can be up to 85%.

Although the destinations where Cebu Pacific will serve is not yet finalized, Lance Gokongwei said in the press release that they are exploring areas where many Filipinos are located such as Europe, Middle East, Oceania and the USA. He also mentioned one specific example, Saudi Arabia, where many Filipinos still fly on non-continuous flights.

A Revolution in International Flight Market?
Cebu Pacific has the known reputation of being a trendsetter in terms of marketing strategy. Their low-cost airline model for Cebu Pacific has boosted the company to be the largest in the Philippines overtaking the long-standing Philippine Airlines (PAL).

Cebu Pacific low-cost promo offers also helped boost Philippines' local tourism. The huge discount on airline fares attracted many locals to travel and explore the country. Due to the popularity of their promos, "Piso Fare" and "Cebu Pacific" has become household terms. 

And with this new direction to go on long-haul flights, Cebu Pacific is bound to be bigger than what they are now. I'm hoping that they will become a trendsetter not only locally, but also internationally when it comes to offering low-cost flights to the passengers.

  2. Every Wednesday the perfumed young lady slips me a hundred-crown note to leave her alone with the convict. And by Thursday the hundred crowns are already gone in so much beer. And when the visiting hour is over, the young lady comes out with the stink of jail in her elegant clothes; and the prisoner goes back to his cell with the lady's perfume in his jailbird's suit. And I'm left with the smell of beer. Life is nothing but trading smells.

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

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…

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
