Isla Lipana & Co. launches Philippine Gems

Isla Lipana & Co., the Philippine member firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, has led the search for the country’s next mainstream destinations to mark the firm’s 91st anniversary this year.

A corporate social responsibility project of the firm, the Philippine Gems does not only promote foreign tourism but also domestic tourism. With those individuals coming in and appreciating the country, the firm hopes that business investments will follow.

The Philippine Gems aims to recognize up and coming destinations in the country through online voting from 26 June to 9 August 2013. Philippine Gems will showcase not the usual tourist spots but rather the wide range of diverse and hidden natural wonders that bejewel our country from Batanes in the North to Siargao in Mindanao.

Facebook kills Postcards says Skyscanner

Photo from
I love writing letters and postcards.  Though the last time I did was a year ago, I sent a postcard to a friend in Italy for his birthday.  Sadly, he received it a week later. But as they said, better late than never! Hehehe...I love it as it's something to anticipate, to wait and to finally hold it and keep for a lifetime. The romance postcards bring is something that is priceless, at least for me.

Sadly though, the use of social networking sites, Facebook in particular  has overtaken the use of the traditional postcards specially when travelling abroad. This is according to the recent survey conducted by leading global travel search site,

The survey said 81% of the 1,000 Filipino tourists polled said that they would update their Facebook while on holiday. Most of us would just post photos, post it on Facebook and tag our love ones to "digitally" share that very moment. I think, since we live in a very fast world, the need to immediately share the joy of being to places a lot of us have no capacity or means to do, has been an essential part of any Filipino travelers.

Entrusting My Daily Errands with

I love to cook! Like writing poems, the urge to cook something would suddenly hit me anytime. The only thing that hinders me to come up with a sumptuous dish sometimes, is the lack of ingredients. Supplies are not always available at home and I have to step out, and buy the ingredients I need.  Most of the time, I don't have the energy, (and the patience) to go out or the craving would hit me at the most unholy hour that stepping out might not be a good idea. So the cooking urge would end up to frustration and hunger hahaha.

A couple of months ago, a good friend of mine asked me to try his new business --- a new website developed by his team who are mostly young and energetic newly grads.  He said, it will change the way I do my daily errands and will save me from spending too many hours lining up in over-crowded stores. is basically a solution to people like me who either lack time to do their own shopping or need to multi-task and do personal stuff while working in front of a computer.

AirAsia PH's new hotline and payment partner announced

I love traveling. In fact, I have been to almost many parts of the country but, admittedly, I have never been to Boracay. So when I heard that AirAsia, one of the low cost airlines flying tourists to Boracay via Kalibo announced that they have a new and better hotline, which, by the way is very easy to remember, I got excited.

Beginning today, AirAsia, which also has the youngest fleet, will be reachable through 742 ASIA or 742-2742 and customers can pay for their tickets cash at any 7-Eleven outlet.

 “To provide optimum customer care service for our guest, AirAsia is launching two new significant innovations. We have a new customer hotline that is easy to remember and we are also rolling out our cash payment partner with 7-Eleven store for our passengers who want to avail of our online promo and other privileges but would like to pay in cash instead of using their credit cards,” AirAsia Inc. Commercial head Freddy Herrera said.
