Cebu Pacific Raises Baggage Prices

Last time, I wrote an article entitled Cebu Pacific Offers The Cheapest Baggage Allowance. But now, things have changed. Yesterday, I booked a flight from Cebu to Davao and noticed a change in their baggage prices.

Here are the changes in the prices of domestic flight baggage allowances:

15 kg - 150 Pesos
20 kg - 280 Pesos
30 kg - 450 Pesos
45 kg - 900 Pesos


15 kg - 180 Pesos
20 kg - 300 Pesos
30 kg - 600 Pesos
45 kg - 1100 Pesos

In their website, Cebu Pacific indicated that the prices were updated this month, March 2013.

Cheapest Baggage Among the Airlines

With these changes implemented, Tiger-SEAIR and Zest Airways now offers the cheapest baggage allowance among all other airlines in the country. Here's the comparison.

About Cebu Pacific

Cebu Pacific is the largest airline in the country in terms of the number of passengers flown. Last year, 2012, they flew over 13 Million passengers. They now operate in 33 domestic and 20 international destinations. The 20 international destinations might soon expand in view of the latest development in Philippine aviation wherein the country has recently passed the global safety audit of a United Nations aviation body.

Cebu Pacific has long been interested in serving long-haul flights to United States and Europe but the country still needs to pass several certifications before they can do so.

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 to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are 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 most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100.

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

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part 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 known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a  Prostate MRI,  and I assume it was 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 note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
