Experience Autumn in Korea in this Latest Promo from Air Asia

In my whole life, I've only experienced autumn just twice, maybe thrice. I went to the United States for a work-training assignment in the fall season of 2013 and 2014. And last year, I went to Seoul, South Korea for a vacation with friends but the timing of that visit is not very good. We went there in the last full week of September but it was still summer for the most part. A little bit disappointed there.

For me, Autumn is the best season. Cool, dry air plus the of course, the color change in the plants. The "last breath" of nature before it sleeps into the winter is truly magnificent, magical! Here are some of the photos I've taken in some of my earlier trips.

AirAsia Philippines Can Take You to Seoul for Less than 10000 Pesos

As you can see, autumn is beautiful, to say the least. But it can be very costly to travel to temperate lands in that season. In Asia, your few options includes Japan, South Korea, and China. Among these, based on my own experience, the cheapest when it comes to overall cost is South Korea. For as low as 15,000 Pesos you can stay there for a day or two (everything excluding airfare). Round trip airfare typically is in the ballpark of 20,000 to 30, 000 Pesos. But it can go really low, like less than 5000 Pesos. But you need to book that about a year before your actual trip. That's what I did for my trip last year. I was able to fly for 5000 Pesos including the baggage.

This time though, since autumn is almost here, Air Asia is offering flights from Manila to Seoul for 4090 Pesos. That plus the corresponding return flight, you may be able to get a total airfare for less than 10000 Pesos. Maybe 15000 Pesos will be a good maximum budget for ticket. So if you have this amount plus another 15000 Pesos, you may book this ticket and start processing you visa. Yes, you need a visa to enter South Korea. But for many, this is easier than you think. Click the link below for the actual process.

This AirAsia promo is open for booking until October 15, 2017 and travel period is until March 31, 2018. If you can't find a suitable ticket for the autumn, another option is Winter and Spring. Both can be beautiful especially the Spring. Don't get me wrong, snow is great but it's too cold. I mean it's too cold! But if you want to try, there may even be more tickets available in the winter time frame, December to January than in Autumn and Spring. Here's a photo of a winter I took in 2014.

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. Get an Affidav

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.

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
