In Fairness, Tiger-Seair Flight Was Good!

Two weeks ago, I had a chance to fly to Manila and back. My flight is with Tiger Airways (or SEAir). But before my flight I had some biases against SEAir/Tiger. I used to think that the service would be worst because it's one the small airline companies that operate locally. Well, I was surprised to realize that my flight is good.

Big Plane (Cebu - Manila) - Seair Airbus A320
Like I said earlier, I had some biases against Seair. I used to think that since they still have fewer customers. they will board me in a small propeller-type plane. I would admit that I don't like that type of plane. First, it flies at a lower altitude, which means more chances of turbulence. Second, it is relatively slow compared with Airbus A320 planes. I still remember when I flew Manila-Cebu route in a turbo-propeller Cebu Pacific aircraft., it took us about two hours of travel time.

Well, I was surprised to see that the aircraft is an Airbus A320 plane even though they were not able to fill all the seats. Lastly, the plane that I boarded is new.

Courteous and Professional Cabin Crew
Well, I would say that I expect a little less with Seair when it comes to their staff. Well, they exceeded my expectation by having a courteous and professional cabin crew (at least on the two flights I've been in).

Cheap Tickets
The reason why I chose Tiger-Seair is because they offer the cheapest promo fare nowadays. Below is the comparison between Cebu Pacific and Tiger Airways.
Tiger Airways 119 Pesos Promo

Cebu Pacific Piso Fare Promo

Notes: Both tickets were purchased in the same year, 2012. Both have no payment for terminal fee.

As you can clearly see above, Tiger-Seair have no Fuel Surcharge, no Web Admin fee. Fuel surcharge is usually the item that blows up your total ticket cost from Cebu Pacific, Airphil and PAL.

I know that eventually, Tiger-Seair may impose other charges such as that of Cebu Pacific in order for them to profit and stay in operation. But at least for now, with all other things the same level as that of Cebu Pacific, Tiger - Airways is a plane of choice.

Note: Tiger Airways is a Singapore-based low-cost airline and currently owns 40% of South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR).

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
