Habagat Rains to Continue Tomorrow
The torrential rains that flooded Metro Manila and other areas in Luzon in the past several days brought about by Soutwest Monsoon (Hanging Habagat) is expected to continue until tomorrow, Thursday. The major dams (Ipo, Lamesa) around Metro Manila has been in overflow levels since Monday. Marikina river is also in a dangerous level forcing evacuation of affected communities. Early this afternoon, Pasay City was put under the state of calamity.

Exercise Care and Vigilance
To be able to keep safe from the dangers brought by severe raining such as landslides and flash floods, everybody is urged to exercise care and vigilance. Be observant on the things that are happening inside and outside your houses. any unusual noise and commotion should be taken seriously.

Also, diseases usually follows the floods due to lack of safe drinking water. Also, cases of  leptospirosis, a bacterial disease that can be acquired through contaminated floodwater, usually increase after floods strikes Metro Manila. These diseases can be avoided though by taking extra care.

Keep Your Survival Kit Ready
Always make sure that your survival kit is ready during these times. It may consist of emergency lights, food and drinking water, first aid kit, matches or lighter, extra batteries and multi tooled knife (swiss knife). Research the net for typical survival kits. Make sure that your cellular phones are charged all the time as you don't know when the electricity will be gone.

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
