Had Enough Holidays? August 21 and 26 are also Holidays!

Most will really love this month! Not for the rainy season but because of the three national holidays being celebrated during the month of August. The first one, Eid'l Fitr will be celebrated this coming Friday. That holiday though is movable because it was based on Islamic lunar calendar. This year, it fell on August 9. Next year though, it would be around July 30.

August 21, 2013 Holiday

The second holiday is on August 21, also known as Ninoy Aquino Day. This is an annual observance of the death of former Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr. Yes, he is the father of President Benigno "Pnoy" Aquino III. His assassination in 1983 is considered to be the trigger point that leads to 1986 EDSA Revolution. The revolution forced the end of the dictatorial regime of then President Ferdinand Marcos.

 

The holiday was created and signed into law in 2004 via Republic Act 9256. It is a special non-working holiday throughout the country.

August 26, 2013 Holiday

The third holiday is on August 26. It is called the National Heroes Day. It is being celebrated every last Monday of August. The purpose of the holiday is to commemorate all heroes in the Philippine history. The holiday also celebrates the Cry of Pugad Lawin which marks the start of the Philippine Revolution in 1896.

National Heroes Day is a regular holiday throughout the country.

What is the Difference Between a Special and Regular Non-working Holidays?

Among others, the pay rules, which is the most interesting. The Philippine Government Official Gazette has created an infographic to demonstrate the difference. Check it out here.

  7. Although the economy is getting lower and lower, drinking water is still attractive to investors. Because many investors are keen to stay and develop in this area, investors must carefully consider carefully selected techniques, technologies, equipment and production lines.

  12. So first you soak your Red Wheat Berries, for 8-24 hours. You can buy Red Wheat Berries at your local health food store, often in the bulk section. And yes wheatgrass is gluten free. I too, was concerned, but after searching around and asking a licensed dietitian friend in the area, the grass itself does not contain any gluten, only the kernel, and in juicing wheatgrass you only juice the grass, so yay!

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
