Planning is a good exercise in almost anything that we want to do. This is especially true with travel. But sometimes, no matter how good our plan is there are unforeseen situations that may come in our way. Some of the inconveniences or losses that we may experience is having to re-book or most of the time, cancel and buy another plane ticket. Did it happened to you already? Well, here's a tip that can help you at least reduce the cost of last-minute ticket purchases: book on Seair or Tiger Airways.

Well, since Singapore based Tiger Airways become held 40% wonership of Seair, the low-cost airline has been in constant expansion. It currently flies from Manila to several major domestic destinations such as Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Kalibo, and Puerto Princesa. But since the airline is still far from the level of Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express, the load factor for each flight is very low. I don't have the data but I can clearly see it from my last week's flight. I was flying Cebu-Manila-Cebu and the plane is just 50 or 60% full. And I am flying at 2-7PM time, which I expect to have the most crowded flight.

For the reason stated above, it is possible that Seair is encouraging more people to fly with them by lowering their last minute tickets. When my friend decided to cancel her original booking, she asked me to find a cheap flight the next day. And to my surprise, it only cost us 1700 Pesos. The booking was made 12 hours before the actual flight. The amount was relatively small compared to other airlines such as Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express where booking your flight at that proximity can cost you more than 3000 Pesos!

Disclaimer: This is only based on my latest experience. Things may change in the future. But if you need to have a cheap fare at a very near travel date, Tiger-SEAir is one of the first airlines to check.

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
