Tiger Airways will be launching their local presence next month, July 2013. But before that, they are holding a promo: free fares on selected domestic and international destinations. Yes, the fare is free but is exclusive of the taxes and miscellaneous fees.

The FREE Fares for June 21

When and Where?- Flight Time and Destinations

The promo is from June 10 to 30. Each day, Tiger Airways will give free fares to specific destination(s). The tickets can only be bought at a specific time of the day only (the time varies each day), and of course, seats are limited and can only be purchased online. Lastly, the free fare is for one way only, the other way is a regular fare.

For example, tomorrow's (June 21) free fare is for Clark to Bangkok and Kalibo to Singapore and can only be booked from 2 - 4PM. Early today, the free fare is from Manila to Kalibo or Laoag. Just check Tiger Airways' website for the updated free fare schedule.

The travel period for the free tickets is from July 1 to September 30, 2013.

Welcoming Tiger Airways in the Changing Airline Industry

Singapore-based Tiger Airways has been operating locally since it acquired 40% of the local airline company Southeast Asian Airlines (SEAIR) last year. Since then, SEAIR flights can now be booked at Tiger Airways website. So in effect, the next month's launch is just a rebranding of SEAIR to Tiger Airways.

The airline industry has seen huge changes recently. Cebu Pacific lead the so called "low-fares revolution" as they entered the low-cost market. It proved to be successful because the company successfully toppled the long time leader Philippine Airlines (PAL) in terms of market share as well as number of aircraft. 

Just last year, business tycoon Lucio Tan sold its majority stake in PAL and Airphil Express to San Miguel Corporation (SMC). SMC took over the management of both PAL and Airphil and immediately made changes including the recent re-branding of Airphil Express to PAL Express. This marks the unification of the two airline firms under SMC's watch. And lately, we saw the news that PAL will be entirely owned by SMC as Lucio Tan plans to sell all its PAL stakes to SMC.
Then last month, AirAsia Philippines bought a majority stake in Zest Air in a huge deal. The move is meant to give AirAsia access to the NAIA, the busiest airport in the country.

The local airline industry is indeed growing with domestic and international tourist numbers reaching record highs. Along with growth though is the heated competition between the airline companies. I just hope that these developments will drive quality and better services to the passengers, an area where we still lags compared to other countries.

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.
