  1. Matagal na kaming customer ng BAUTISTA GAS at ngayon ko lang naranasan ang nakakagimbal na serbisyong pinakita nila, Dati-rati kapag may problema ang inihatid nilang gas ay agarang pinapalitan ito ng maayos na tangke ng gas.

    Pero ngayon, lahat ay nagbago na....
    Nitong mga nakalipas na araw ay nagpadeliver kami ng gas at sa kasamaang palad ay may deprensya ang inihatid nilang tangke ng gas, nalaman lang namin ito nang nangamoy ang buong bahay namin ng mabahong gas mabuti't wala pang nagsisindi/nagluluto sa kalan sa amin. Itinawag agad namin ito sa branch station nila na aming pinagkuhanan, doon na nagsimula ang NAPAKA-PANGIT NA SERBISYO nila,

    Nang nakausap namin sa telepono ang receptionist nila at sinabi namin agad ang problema na idineliver nila, Nakapagtatakang ang sinabi ng nakausap namin na tumawag sa Opisina nila. Naitawag at nasabi namin ang problema sa binigay na numero sa Opisina nila, makalipas ang mahigit na isang Oras doon pa lang dumating ang rider na nagdeliver sa amin ng gas, Ipinasuri namin ang tangke ng gas.

    Laking Dismayado ang naramdaman namin ng niremedyohan ng rider ang tangke ng gas imbes na palitan ito ng Bago at maayos na tangke ng gas.
    Ayon sa Rider, papalitan lang daw nila ang Gasul kung ito'y hindi nya maaayos.

    Upang hindi mauwi sa Argumento O pagtatalo ay hinayaan na lang namin na hindi mapalitan ito. Pero ito na ang Huling beses na kami'y kukuha mula sa BAUTISTA GAS.

    Sana ay Huwag maranasan ito ng ibang customers upang hindi mangyari ang anumang aksidente na maaring maidulot nito sa kanila.

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…

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

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
