Interesting News: Cebu Pacific Flies to Camiguin, PRC Reschedules CPA Exam

Aside from the Sabah crisis which made headlines in the last couple of days, here are some news that I personally think interests the readers of this blog.

Cebu Pacific Now Flies to Camiguin and Masbate

Philippines' largest airline and leader of low airfares promotions Cebu Pacific will start flying from Cebu to Masbate and Camiguin. The operation in those two new destinations will start on April 15 and June 1 for Camiguin and Masbate respectively.

With the two new routes, Cebu Pacific will now operate in 35 domestic and 20 international destinations. Just recently, Cebu Pacific announced direct flight to Bali, Indonesia and Dubai, UAE.

Cebu Pacific continues to expand their dominance in the local and international market. The airline recently announced their desire to operate other long-haul flights such as the United States, Europe and Australia. And with the recent passing of Philippine Aviation in the safety certification by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), that goal seems to be already in the horizon.

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.

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.

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
