Airphil Express Re-brands to PAL Express

Starting today, March 15, 2013 Airphil Express will be known as PAL Express. The move is in line with the strategic alignment of airline businesses owned and operated by San Miguel Corporation.

Last April 4, 2012, diversified conglomerate San Miguel Corporation bought 49% controlling stake in Philippine Airlines (PAL) from Lucio Tan's holding company. The $500 Million deal included Airphil Express.

Summary of Changes

What can we expect from the re-branding? Well, its not just the name that will change but more is involved. Here are some of them:
  • PAL Express passengers can now earn miles
  • PAL Express passengers will be served with complimentary snacks and reading materials
  • PAL Express website is now www.flypalexpress.com
  • PAL Express airplanes will now display a similar logo as that of Philippine Airlines
What will not change?
  • PAL Express will remain as a low-cost carrier and will continue to offer promo fares
  • PAL Express flight crew (pilots, stewards, etc) will remain as such; PAL pilots and crew will fly PAL flights only.

Air Philippines to Airphil Express and now PAL Express

To date, this is the second re-branding of PAL's budget arm. It was then known as Air Philippines. In 2010, it re-branded to Airphil Express along with the conversion to a low-cost airline business model. Then, lately, it re-branded to PAL Express, an airline brand previously used by PAL for its low-cost intra-regional flights in Visayas and Mindanao.

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
