Commuters Can Now Enjoy NTC's EDSA Free Wifi Project

Commuting in EDSA can be a horrible experience especially if you are caught in traffic or find yourself queueing for the MRT. Most of the time, people are already hot-headed and tired when they reach their destinations, especially when they are already running late.

To ease the time spent waiting in traffic, people usually turn to their mobile phones to keep themselves busy and updated with the news, their friends, etc. And to help address this woes, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), along with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Metro Rail Transit Development Corp (MRT)., Light Rail Transit Authority, Light Rail Manila Corp., Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Manila Electric Co., Philippine Reclamation Authority, the local government units of Makati, Mandaluyong, Pasay, and Quezon City, A&A, PLDT- Smart, and Globe Telecom all joined hands to provide commuters with the EDSA Free Wifi Project.

Staying at Budget-friendly Karaksa Hotel in Japan

Japan has always been one of the top dream vacation place of Filipinos because it has a whole wide spectrum of things to enjoy such as cultural places, old and more architecture, food, shopping districts, and lots and lots of temples.

For some, going to Tokyo and visiting the famous Ginza District tops their list but there are also some who prefers to immerse themselves in Japan's zen-culture by opting to go to Kyoto.

Kyoto is a very picturesque place especially with its centuries-old castles, the Arashimaya Bamboo Forest, and shrines and pavilions. This place is also home to the lovely cherry blossom trees and geisha culture. But of course, it is always a pleasant travel experience if one can stay for several days or more so that one can really "feel" the place.

On Banking: How Safe Is Our Money?

A few months back, most of us suddenly found ourselves with zero bank balance or for some, with their savings / checking accounts ballooning to great proportions from a few thousands to millions of peso. I've read a lot of rants about it and even the bank seem to be at a loss until they were able to figure everything out and everything went back to normal.
