Really Cheap Hotel Accommodation - Less than Php 100 per night!

Image
No one could ever imagine that you can get a hotel room for less than one hundred pesos. The big secret - just book in advance. When I say in advance, that's like 12 months ahead.  I know a lot may happen and we won't be able to finalize everything but getting a hotel room deal for Php 88 per night + VAT which sums up to Php 93+ is something you can't just let go. We also believe that if our trip won't push through -- it is not much of a heartbreak because it is just so cheap. :)  So, if you are wondering which hotel am I talking about. It's no other than Go Hotels which known to provide affordable and quality service and accommodation. They have branches all over the Philippines particularly Metro Manila (Otis, Ortigas, Cybergate-Mandaluyong), Bacolod, Davao, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Butuan, Tacloban and Puerto Princesa.  Starting today, July 26-28, Go Hotels is having room sale for Bacolod, Davao, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Butuan, Tacloban for as low as Php 88 per

Cancelled Flight: What will happen to me?

Image
This is not about ranting about cancelled flights and the hassle it brings to passengers but let me just share to you the things that normally and IDEALLY happens to cancelled flights and to their passengers. When I went to Cebu last June for my mom's birthday, my flight going back to Bacolod got cancelled due to aircraft trouble. Since Cebu Pacific only have 2 flights per day with the CEB-BAC route and I had the later flight, we really did not have the option to be transferred to the next flight on that day. We were informed that we had to stay overnight and wait for the first flight the next day. Source: www.cebupacificair.com The announcement that came around 10 minutes before boarding time and all passengers were asked to go to Cebu Pacific's check-in counters for assistance. Thus, it is very important to listen and be mindful of the announcements while waiting to board the plane. Here are some of the things that will happen or things that you have to do and kee

The Experience of Being Involved in a Road Accident and Life Lessons

Image
Last September 2015, we bought Cheesecake to the vet for another shot of her vaccinations. Unfortunately, on our way home, we got involved in a road accident with multiple collisions. A 10-wheeler truck driving through the Circumferential Road in Bacolod had a brake malfunction that led to a major road mishap involving a total of 7 vehicles.  Though we are still very thankful that there are no casualties involved. Damage to property was extensive since the truck which carried a heavy equipment/ backhoe had hit a Kia Avanza, Nissan Pathfinder whose tires blew up, a 2-month-old Mitsubishi Montero, a 6-wheeler truck carrying sacks of cement, a motorcycle with a sidecar and our Nissan Sentra.  It was our first time to be involved in an accident and I had a mix of emotions. There was shock, fear, anxiety, and anger. I composed myself and went down the car. I saw the driver and just looked at him with the facial expression "What the hell did just happen?" He was apol

Commuting from Mactan International Airport (Cebu)

Image
With the recent improvements made at the Mactan International Airport, I believe this is the best airport we have in the country. I love the new stores, cafe and food outlets near the check in counters as well as the boarding area. Starbucks, Seattle's Best, Jollibee and Bench are a few of them.  Mactan International Airport should also take pride with the excellent service, security and the ease of travel to and from the airport that they offer. Aside from the regular taxi (white) and the airport taxi (yellow) readily available at the taxi bay. One can also commute to and from Cebu's airport through the SM Mybus service.   One has the option to pay through cash or a reloadable SM MyBus card which is also accepted in all ePlus partner merchants. The fare  from the Airport to SM Cebu is only Php 25. Definitely way cheaper than a normal taxi ride which averages Php 150. Aside from this route, SM MyBus also has other routes as far as SM Seaside, Lawaan - Talisay and J-Mall. 

Goodbye Razors, Hello Waxing!

Image
I am one of the "unlikely" who is "balbon" wherein as early as high school, I have been concerned about shaving. In a world where being hairless other than the ones on our head is beautiful. It has been expected that shaving or hair removal is part of our hygiene.  I grew up using razors which included little accidents of cutting my legs. When I grew a bit older, I was able to discover better ways to remove unsightly hair in my body.  We should realize that is important to never neglect hair removal. Some might view it as plain vanity, but removing unsightly hair in our body simply shows that we care for our overall looks and we value how people sees us. Hair removal is a lifestyle and it shows how you brand yourself.  I believe that branding yourself properly will eventually lead to elation. Feeling good about yourself can lead to a more productive life as it boost your confidence resulting to a more productive you. Here are some pros and cons in ways to re

Gear up for School with CD-R King

Image
When I was still in college, CD-R King had been my number one source for my multimedia needs such as blank CDs, flash drives and even my small computer parts like mouse, keyboard and headsets. 12 years later,  CD-R King is still there to provide students with their back-to-school supplies with a wider range of products but still with the same affordable products. CD-R King understands every parent's dream to fully provide for their treasured children/students. The necessities required by the academe is more often overwhelming. Thus, Cd-R King perceives the need to provide for parents, students, and the school itself a channel where quality yet affordable supplies can be acquired which they have been doing for more than 10 years. This is the most basic reason why everyone shifted to the brand and we (Filipinos) are thankful to have an alternative as oppose to the more expensive ones in the market. Giving Filipinos a practical option has always been CR-R Kings vision. Let me
