Is Monday, July 23, 2012 (PNoy's Third SONA) a Holiday?

English: Mr. Noynoy Aquino

Well, I guess many of us is asking whether Malacanang will declare Monday, July 23, 2012 as a national holiday because of President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's third State of the Nation Address (SONA). Well, the answer is "probably not". Based on previous two SONA's (2010 nad 2011), Malacanang decided to make the SONA day, a regular working day to everyone. There is a reason to believe that it would be the same this year.

Also, as many of us must have already noticed, Aquino's administration is discrete with holidays. That is why, only in certain cases that he declares new holdays aside from those whom he already pre-programmed before the year begins. For 2012, Proclamation No. 295 list down specific holidays to be celebrated this year and SONA day is not included, although the President have the power to change it.

A Balance Between Rest and Work
President Aquino appears to be careful in balancing the workforce's need for rest and the need of the employers. Data shows that the Philippines is one of the countries with many holidays. Although we really need holidays for special occasions and rest, we should not forget that we also need to work to survive. In my humble opinion, I'll just follow what the government decides, since they have the overall picture of the entire nation.

How about you? What do you think? Should President Aquino declare July 23 SONA as holiday? Please write your comment.

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:

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
