This year 2017 is coming to it's end very soon. Time flies indeed especially if we are busy with so many things competing to get our attention. So, maybe we may need to stop and for once, enjoy a time with our family without worrying about work. That's the other purpose of national holidays and here in the Philippines, we are fortunate to have many.

Local Government Holidays

Aside from the holidays mentioned above, there are also some local holidays unique to a province, town or city. For example, some provinces celebrate their "foundation" day. It may be that these local holidays are still upcoming to your place. So check out your local government for the dates.

Based on the information above, you still have a chance to have a time off work and enjoy the company of family or friends. One of the best way to do it is to travel whether domestically or internationally. The latest promo from Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines can help you slash out some of the cost of your trip.

  5. One way to do this is to attend Study Hall during lunch, before the next test. Another, powerful way is to make sure that they bring their COMPLETED NOTES to class on the day of the exam. To aid Students in completing their Notes, Mr. Hatfield makes them available on-line through this blog and gives a Study Guide for Students to complete to demonstrate that they have the Notes, and know what to do with them. Bring evidence that you have prepared for the test, students, and you will be rewarded! abcya club , jogos friv online , 2player games

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
