IHOP Philippines is Now Open!

Finally, IHOP Philippines is here!

International House of Pancake (IHOP) is now in the Philippines. The first day of its operation happened last February 14, 2013. And this is not just the first in the country, it is the first in Asia. Local company Global Restaurant Concepts Inc got the first franchise of the popular restaurant and brought it to the Philippine market.

IHOP specializes in breakfast foods such as pancakes and omelets. It originated in the United States and recently started their global expansion, opening franchises in Dubai and  Metro Manila, Philippines.

IHOP Philippines vs Other Fast Foods

IHOP Philippines will compete against other fast food companies in the country led by Jollibee and McDonald's. Both companies offers breakfast value meals at a decent price.

But IHOP it is more directed to competing against Pancake House whose business focuses on selling pancakes and waffles. But together, both companies will serve an alternative to Filipinos whose breakfast meals are mostly rice-based.

IHOP Philippines' first branch is at the Ground Floor of W Bonifacio Global City (formerly known as Fort Bonifacio), a bustling commercial district in Taguig City, Metro Manila.

Since IHOP focuses on breakfast foods, they are open from 6AM to 2PM Sundays to Thursdays. But on Fridays and Saturdays, they are open 24 hours.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for Replacement of Passbook This can be a simple replacement of the lost passbook but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes.

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.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu
