But recently, it wasn't anymore in the list of Manila routes available in their website.The sole airline that flies to Batanes is SkyJet. As of today, they are still serving the Manila - Basco route. But Skyjet won't be alone anymore, because just a few days ago, Airphil Express announces their Manila - Basco route starting May 2013.

Another new route of Airphil Express is Zamboanga - Sandakan. Sandakan is the second largest city in Sabah, Malaysia.

We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
