Free Tickets Anyone? - Tiger Airways Promo

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.

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
