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.

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
