Tigerair Offers Zero Fare

Looking for cheap fares these upcoming months of September to December? If so, check this out.

Low-cost airline Tigerair announces a Zero Fare promo on all domestic and selected international destinations. The travel period is from September 1 to December 15, 2013. Promo period is from August 14 to 16 subject to seat availability.

For more details about specific destinations as well as number of available seats, please check this link.

How Much is the Total Cost?

Zero fare doesn't mean that you will pay zero. Zero Fare refers to the base fare only. Aside from that there are other items that needs to be paid like Fuel Surcharge.

Fuel surcharge varies depending on the route. For example, Manila - Cebu flights' surcharge is 300 Pesos. Fuel surcharges were allowed by the Civil Aviation Board (CAB) to help airlines recover their losses from the increase of jet fuel price in the world market.

In addition to fuel surcharge, Tigerair and other airlines also collects booking fee (including taxes) which amounts to 120 pesos.

Lastly, depending on the airport terminal, Tigerair and other airlines collects the terminal fee. For Cebu, Davao, Clark and NAIA airport terminals, the fee for domestic flight is 200 Pesos per outbound flight. For international flights, it is 550 Pesos.

If you decide to check-in some baggage, you also need to pay that based on the total weight and size.

As an example, my flight, Manila to Cebu costs only 620 Pesos, without baggage. The breakdown is shown below:

Base Fare: 0 Peso
Fuel Surcharge: 300 Pesos
Booking Fee (incl. taxes): 120 Pesos
Terminal Fee (one-way): 200 Pesos
Total: 620 Pesos

Fair enough? I think so.

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.

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

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part 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 known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a  Prostate MRI,  and I assume it was 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 note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
