Ever had this bad experience with Cebu Pacific Airlines? Last December i purchased online, using my credit card, airline tickets for Manila. As typhoon Ruby was looming to make a landfall on the day where we will be in Manila, i cancelled the trip for all three of us, two other are my officemates, on that scheduled trip. With the cancellation made online, out of the over forty thousand pesos total cost of the fare, eight thousand pesos was deducted as cancellation fee. The remaining amount after deducting the 8thousand cancellation fee was made as travel fund. This travel fund expires in ninety days. How ridiculous, it is. When i recently used my travel fund for a trip to manila, an amount of one thousand six hundred eighty was charged for name change fee. This is more ridiculous. How could it charge me for name change fee when i was the one traveling?This i personally complained to the cebu pacific office and it is such a hassle to do it as it would take about two hours for them to finally settle with an answer that the amount for name change fee will be given back to me as travel fund. Whew, i would never like to travel again with cebu pacific nor recommend future group bookings with this airline.To me, its system socks.

Regular car maintenance check-up is a must. I do this religiously on my car at my car dealer service center. Recent car check-up was February 1st week. It was diagnosed that my car tires need replacement, For a two-year old car I thought it was too early to do it, But car technicians know best. I should buy five new tires, soon. I need quality tires and I scouted in the car stores in my city but I found none, Hmm, maybe I have to buy it online as it is now the trend. No need for me to personally buy it Manila or Cebu. Got to do this now to give ample time for delivery. In times like this, I thank the modern technology for making things easy for me. A simple click of the mouse and voila I am done with my transaction in a short time,
Think couponing is only for people who have countless hours to clip, snip and shop? Think again. Couponing can be accessible for anyone by following just a few simple guidelines. Additionally, couponing is just like any other skill, you get better at the more you do it. Here are some simple tips to get you started on your money saving journey.
Stick to a schedule, use only one store
Yes, yes, I know that you can save more if you shop at different places. But that technique is really only for the experienced (not to mention time-rich) couponers. If you’re like the rest of us, you don’t have the time to hit 5 different stores for your groceries on 3 different days. You can still save bucks in a manner that’s a lot more sustainable by narrowing your shopping down to one day and one store.
Use online coupons
There are entire websites (and a lot of them) available for the express purpose of collecting coupons and matching up sales. A simple online search can help you find coupons relevant to your needs, as well as help you find new ways to save! If you want an example, simply visit Discountrue and you'll see how easy to navigate it is and what sort of deals you can find there.
Seriously, stop. It’s really not necessary, and it’s not a great way to be organized, anyways. You can keep your coupon inserts from the Sunday paper in a file folder (labeled with the date of the newspaper) and take it to the store, just like that! You will need a way to organize your loose coupons, and there are a lot of binders and other organizers on the market that you can use.
Decide where you’d like to save money
Keep the receipts from your non-couponed grocery trips for a month or two, then sit down and look over where you spend your money and where you’d like to save. Part of more efficient grocery shopping is about identifying areas that you are overspending and then looking to see if there are coupons that can help. You won’t be saving money if you find coupons that encourage you to purchase things you weren’t purchasing to begin with. If the bulk of your money gets spent on meat and produce, you’re not likely to find a lot of coupons for those types of items. However you can still learn the sale dates of your grocery store and aim to purchase meat, etc. on those dates only. Additionally, anyone can save on toiletries, paper goods, etc. and that’s the bulk of products that you’ll find coupons for!
The trick to couponing, especially at the beginning, is to make it sustainable. It’s okay if you miss a weekend, it’s okay if you miss a sale. Any money that you save is money saved, no matter if that number is large or small. Creating a sustainable couponing method is the best way to guarantee that you’ll keep it up, which means you’ll get better at it, which means you’ll increase your savings over time!

I had a valentine experience that i will never forget. This was my dinner experience with a friend in a restaurant at Robinson. The resto was packed with many customers but my friend who came ahead of me managed to find us a seat. We post our food orders of local rice noodles, budbod na turon-a ripe banana wrapped in thin lumpia wrapper and glazed with hersheys and mango puree syrup, and for our drinks we ordered mango shakes. The wait for our food took for more than an hour but we were informed that there was no more mango shake. We, nevertheless ate our food with gusto. After eating, we asked for our bill. We asked from three staffs but it never came until we decided to leave the resto without paying. Not that we are evading the payment of our bill but i am going there today to pay for it.

There are times when we confused laziness with tiredness. Laziness is an act we perform to avoid something while tiredness forces us to avoid something because we have drained out our energy and were not in a position to carry out that task.
So, stop being lazy and work when you should work.
Well, we all know that our energies are limited. S, it is better to set a limit and work to achieve an achievable goal. This way, we will not burden ourselves with too many things and will be in a position to get back on track with ease.
Well, what do you do at night? Technically, one should sleep, but we are either fiddling with our smartphones or playing games. Stop doing it!
If you are in your bed, sleep! Even if you are not sleepy, listen to some melodies or random soothing music. Whatever is possible, do it and sleep on time.

It is February 11 now, Start of fiesta holidays here. Yesterday, it was fiesta in one village, Now, it is fiesta in a barangay or village near my barangay. Expectedly, there would be traffic jam as many vehicles will surely dominate the narrow roads of V & G subdivision. I don't plan to heed the fiesta invitations of two friends in V & G. I would rather go to my office to finish some unfinished tasks, Going to the fiestas would mean eating more than I need and intake of more calories. I am watching over my diet. I am not getting any younger and my metabolism is getting slower. Fiestas and party invitations expectedly have plenty of food too eat. Diet limits become unlimited in most cases. To avoid, I had better stay away from fiestas and parties.

The recent Christmas in my city and in other typhoon affected municipalities and towns is not as festive as the previous Christmases that passed. This was mainly because of the recent super typhoon that hit my place and many parts of the region. But I am so sure that in the next years to come, the Christmas season will be festive because the people will have recovered and restored their houses and their livelihood. Every house will surely have holiday decors and ornaments hanged inside and outside their houses for Christmas. The Christmas ornaments at christopher radko are a good buy of Christmas decors. A variety of items to choose from can be seen at their website. It can be accessed 24/7.
Pope Francis is now on transit back to Rome. The Filipinos are still euphoric from having a glimpse and touch of Pope Francis. Few had a chance to talk and some few were able to kiss and hug the Pope. The Filipino spirits are truly water and typhoon proof. Despite the heavy rains with gusty winds, the Filipinos weathered them all just to meet the Pope. He has imparted some words of wisdom that will forever be treasured and remembered by the Filipinos. May the Pope"s visit put end to fights and bickerings that cause trouble and misunderstandings among people in the country. May your words live on to be lived, Pope Francis!
