Tiger Airways Philippines Will Offer Kalibo-Singapore Route

*starting next month; July 2013

Hindi pa rin ako nakakalabas ng bansa. Solid Pinoy at solid Philippine destinations lang ako. Kung lalabas ako ng bansa, pupunta siguro ako ng Singapore para maghanap ng trabaho, Malaysia para makita ang Petronas Towers, Australia para makakita ng kangaroo, or Hongkong para makapag-shopping.

At nakadepende pa kay Pentells kung saan niya gusto pumunta. Nung huli ko siyang tinanong, Australia ang sagot niya.

Flying Tiger

Pag international destinations, wala pa akong airline of choice. At mukhang promising itong Tiger Airways. Noong unang panahon, sa Clark lang sila lumilipad. Wala pa akong nakitang Tiger Airways sa NAIA.

Masaya akong lilipad siguro palabas ng bansa kung sasakay ako sa Tiger, ang aking Chinese Zodiac. Kagaya ng Tiger Economy ng Pilipinas, sinasabayan ng Tiger Airways Philippines ang pag-boom natin.

A new Tiger has arrived – and it brings with it a promise of a great adventure, memorable experiences, and the excitement of a new journey.

Known as the leading and most trusted value-for-money carrier in Southesast Asia, Tiger Airways Philippines will make its formal debut in the skies beginning July 10.

“Tiger Airways is the leading airline and travel partner connecting people across Asia Pacific. It is a distinguished regional brand that differentiates itself in terms of safety and reliability,” says newly-appointed president and chief executive officer (CEO) Ms. Olive Ramos.

Committed to bringing its customers its brand of friendly, high-quality service,  and excellent standards of security,  Tiger Airways Philippines promises to make travel around Asia more enjoyable.

With the Philippines poised to become Asia’s next tiger economy, Tiger Airways anticipates more flights connecting the country to its Asian neighbors – and even beyond, in the coming years. “It’s a niche we are eager and equipped to serve,” adds Tiger Airways’ chief.

Currently, Tiger Airways flies to Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong from Manila and Clark. Locally, it serves travelers going to Laoag, Bacolod, Kalibo, Cebu, Iloilo Tacloban and Puerto Princesa.

Next month, Tiger Airways will add another feather to its cap when it marks a milestone – the Kalibo and Singapore route, the first and only airline to offer such route.

“We embrace the simple belief that travel is about bringing people closer to their dreams and about enabling great experiences, and memories,” adds Ramos.

The new Tiger Airways Philippines will offer great value and seamless experience. Together with the Filipino personnel’s warm and hospitable traits, the airline will be “the one to beat” in the coming years, she adds.

The birth of Tiger Airways Philippines brings along with it the technology and business savvy of Tiger Airways as it offers travelers greater accessibility to the rest of Southeast Asia. It does not only commit to high performance standards and innovation, it also confident about keeping its venture more sustainable for stakeholders.

Tiger Air embodies a ‘can-do’ and respectful spirit, according to Ramos. “We will continuously pursue for roaring excellence. We are going to be the airline of choice!”

Google Releases Special Logo For Philippine Independence

Hindi magpapatalo ang Google, lalo pa’t may office na sila dito sa Pinas.

It has been 115 years since unang beses winagayway ang bandila natin sa Kawit, Cavite. Three stars and a sun na may pula’t bughaw, yan naman ang watawat ng Pilipinas, na makikita rin sa Google search kapag nagpunta ka sa http://www.google.com.ph ngayong June 12, 2013.

Higit tatlong taon na ring gimik ng Google ito. Pinapalitan nila ang logo nila depende sa araw. Naaalala ko pa nga dati na may pacman game sa Google search page. Nagkaroon din ng Amelia Earhart day. Hindi rin nawawala ang Christmas, New Year, Valentines at kung anu-ano pang special occasions.

Pero ngayon, ito lang ang makikita sa Google:

Gusto Ko Mag-Cebu At Tumambay Sa Moevenpick Hotel, Mactan Island

dahil awardee siya ng TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Isa sa mga pangarap ko ang makapunta sa Cebu at mag-staycation. Yun bang pagbaba mo ng eroplano, punta ka lang ng hotel, then yun na; hindi ka na makikigulo sa city. Staycation lang talaga.

Kaya naman nang makita ko ang press release na ito, isusunod ko na ang pag-abang ng seat sale papuntang Cebu. Kahit na anong airlines siguro, ayos na. Ang pupuntahan ko lang naman talaga ay ang hotel.

Nang masubukan ko naman ang TripAdvisor Awardee na ito. Top 10% Worldwide pala ha. Sige nga…
