3 Things to do when in Dumaguete City

Dumaguete is the capital city of Negros Oriental. It can be accessed via plane from Manila on almost all major airlines in the country. Another way is via Cebu. From Cebu City, you have to travel on land for about 4 hours down to Liloan Port located in the southern tip of Cebu island. From there, you will have to cross the Tanon Strait for about 30 minutes docking on Sibulan port. A few minutes drive from there will take you to Dumaguete City. So, what can you do if you're in Dumaguete? Here's three things you can do over a weekend.

1. Fine Dine in Sansrival Restaurant

After a long trip especially from Cebu City, you would understandably be very hungry. Dumaguete is famous for the Sansrival Restaurant. As the name suggests, it used to be a bakeshop with sans rival as the main offering. Sans Rival, by the way, ia a Filipino desssert made of layers of buttercream, meringue and chopped cashews.
Now in addition to the bakeshop, they have a fine dining restaurant offering local and international delicacies. You can fine western and eastern food at the same time. And it cost about 20% cheaper than in Metro Manila or Cebu City!



2. Visit Apo Island

If you're in for a 'natural' adventure, then I would recommend swimming with the turtles in Apo island. It's located across the the town of Zamboanguita, about 20 minutes from Dumaguete City. Boat ride is around 3500 pesos for ten persons but you can always negotiate especially for smaller groups. Entrance fee of 100 pesos will also need to be paid when you reach the island. Renting life vests and goggles will cost 100 pesos per item.

Here's some underwater photos to give you an idea of how beautiful the experience is.

3. Visit Manjuyod Sand Bar in Bais City

About an hour of drive from Dumaguete is Bais City. Across that city is a beautiful white sand bar that appears and disappears on tidal condition. You can rent a boat to take you there and in addition to that, dolphin watching and visiting the causeway in the mangrove forest. The entire activity may take almost 7 hours to finish. Here's some interesting photos.

  3. That is two millennia of knowledge, civilization and human achievement razed to nothingness by Fascist aggression. Like a terrified Aeneas on the run, Eliot flees the burning shores of Europe to seek reparation to the damages, caused by Western imperialist violence, in the ancient spirituality of the Upanishadas, in its enduring message of peace, compassion and generosity. The coda of The Wasteland is a random series of neurotic visions of a disintegrating reality that is finally salvaged by the incantatory chanting of 'Shantih'.

  4. Unfortunately there are just some all-too-common nutrients that we simply don't get enough of. And they're absolutely critical to optimal health and wellness. Especially as we age.
    Here I sifted through the supplements that are available on the market and boiled them down to three that can have the best effect for us.

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
