About Taiwan

Officially named as Republic of China (ROC), Taiwan is a small island state north of the Philippines and East of China. It is home to thriving electronics manufacturing industry as well as many tourist attractions including the famous skyscraper Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world from 2004 to 2010 when it was surpassed by  Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Aside from Taipei 101, Taiwan also have many places that showcase their culture and heritage. Some of them are the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall and  National and the Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine.

Generally, Taiwan is significantly cheaper than many other Asian destinations such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and South Korea. That goes with food, lodging and transportation.

No Visa for Philippine Passport Holders

As mentioned, the Taiwanese authorities have confirmed that they are removing the visa requirement for Filipinos who wish to enter their country. As to when that will be implemented, the news mentioned sometime this month October or November 2017. 
But even now, some can enter Taiwan without the need for visa and can stay there for 30 days. One must meet any of these two conditions:
  • Holding a permanent residence certificate or a valid visa from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Schengen Countries, United Kingdom or United States. Expired visa from the country mentioned above is also acceptable as long as it’s not more than 10 years since the expiration of the visa.
  • The applicant possesses an entry visa or resident card issued by the ROC at any point in the past 10 years and has no record of immigration irregularities or law violations in Taiwan. However, holders of ROC entry visas bearing the remark FL (i.e., foreign laborer) or X (i.e., others), as well as holders of ROC resident cards with stated purpose of residence being foreign laborer (i.e., 外勞), are not eligible for an ROC Travel Authorization Certificate.
If you meet the above condition, check out this link for the full requirement and the link for online application: http://www.boca.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=6464&ctNode=868&mp=2

  1. There is nothing more important than giving our best effort, all of the time. On an exam day, a good effort means that students attempt everything, even if that means they need to come back at lunch or after school. Show a work ethic, students, and you will not only do better on the test....you will do better in every aspect of your life.

  3. My entire working career up until that point had only been the safe route with a large corporation. You know the life. The daily grind. The BS you put up with because you figure this is the ONLY way. I even went on to get a psychology degree because the jobs I had been looking at required it. When I finished my degree I found that the amount of education I had was once again not enough.

  4. The Whitman-Hanson Girls Varsity Lacrosse team won their preliminary round state tournament game at Nauset today 10-4. The first half saw the Warriors come out with some speed and WH found themselves in a 3-0 hole. Some small adjustments on defense and more hustle on the circle led the Panthers to a 5-3 lead with 4 minutes to go in the first half.

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:

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…

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
