An Update to My Cancelled Zest Air Flight Story

Last Tuesday, in the article entitled True Story: Warning to Zest Air Passengers and Potential Customers, I wrote about our problem when Zest Air decided to cancel all flights from Cebu to Davao. Now I'm glad to tell everyone that Zest Air finally conceded and gave us a better option than simply refunding our tickets. Here's what happened.

Went Back to Zest Air Office in Mactan-Cebu Airport

After trying to contact them through various office numbers, my friends decided to go to their Airport office for the last time. If this turns out unsuccessful, we'll just buy a new ticket and pursue a legal solution. It was a tough decision since the prevailing one-way ticket prices at that time was around 2500 Pesos at the minimum.This is far from the 700 pesos Zest Air offered to refund. But our event in Davao is of utmost importance so we have no choice but to proceed.

Even if it's late Tuesday night, around 10PM, they proceeded to Zest Air office. I decided not to go because, in my mind, I have already gave up the possibility of Zest Air rebooking our tickets. The next morning though, a pleasant news came to me as I received a message telling me that Zest Air finally decided to book us a new ticket. It's a flight from Cebu to Manila and then Manila to Davao. Though we still prefer a straight Cebu-Davao flight, we accepted the offer.

Will I Ever Fly Zest Air Again?

Probably a more appropriate question is: Will I ever trust Zest Air again? Yes, I believe that every time a customer purchases a product or service, it's an act of trust, trusting that the product is worth the value paid or the provider will give the service as agreed during the purchase. Although in the final analysis, Zest Air did what they ought to do, it took huge effort on our part to get what we deserved based on the existing law. Anxiety, inconvenience and wasted time were just things that can't be paid paid back. I speak for myself when I say, I don't trust Zest Air anymore.

But in view of the fact that businesses tends to improve through time and that Zest Air and Air Asia now merged into single airline company, I'm not totally closing my door in doing business with them. But until such time when their service is worth their price, I won't fly with them.

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. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the loss. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3.

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

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.
