Palace Declares July 13, 2012 As National Day of Remembrance in Honor of Dolphy Quizon

Two days after the news of Dolphy's death broke out, President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III declares Friday, July 13, 2012 as a national day of remembrance in honor of the late comedy king. In statement, deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte says that "The President issued the proclamation in recognition of how the nation deeply feels the passing of Dolphy. In the proclamation, the President cited Dolphy as a man who will live on in Philippine cultural history—and in the hearts of many of his countrymen."

Shed also added that the proclamation aims to encourage the Filipinos to reflect on Dolphy's contributions to art and artistry, his personal kindness and generosity, and deep patriotism.

A working day tomorrow

Proclamation 433 that declares the national day of remembrance for Dolphy doesn't mention that tomorrow will be a non-working holiday. With that, regular work schedules will pursue nationwide.

National Artist Award-giving Body in Hot Waters

The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) is now in hot waters for allegedly failing to give Dolphy the National Artist award in 2009 allegedly due to lame reasons such as the personal life of Dolphy as well as his gay roles. The public clamor started to get hot when Dolphy's health condition became known to the public. And now that he died, interest to NCCA was at all-time high.

In response to that, the government has issued a primer regarding the nature of the award and the qualification to receive it. Please see the primer here: http://www.gov.ph/the-order-of-national-artists/

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.

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.

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. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. 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.
