DepEd CENTRAL OFFICE offers Summer Jobs to Students

31 Mar
Note: There were applicants selected already and had started the summer job. Please check DepEd’s Facebook for more information.
I never had the opportunity to experience summer jobs. I could not exactly recall why. It wouldn’t be difficult for me to get one I believe, because we had friends working in the city government. One of our close friends used to be the Vice Mayor of my hometown. Probably I was just so lazy to apply. Hence, I miss this summer experience in College.
In DepEd’s (Department of Education) press release dated March 28, 2011, it announced that DepEd CENTRAL OFFICE is opening slots for summer jobs to students.

Thank You Cebu Pacific’s Piso Sale

23 Mar

Last June 12, 2010 Cebu Pacific had a Piso Sale promo. Luckily, I was on RD on that day just facing the monitor wandering around the Internet.  I booked right away! I had to call CEB’s hotline because I don’t have a credit card (And I never plan to get one). Good thing is that CEB allows one to pay at any payment centers at BDO. I booked 12 persons in total and only paid P1,200, back and forth. That’s like P100 each. And P50 one way. WOW. Isn’t a best deal one could ever have? The con is: we had to wait 9 months for our scheduled trip to come. But that is fine. I did not have the time anyway the past few months because of work and school. So March is really the perfect time to travel 🙂

First stop is Butuan. 2 of my relatives will fetch us and will proceed to Surigao. Then will travel to Butuan again to go to Gingoog and Cagayan de Oro. 4 cities in 7 days! Hahaha. Gushh. I pray I will have all the energy needed to visit friends, neighbors and relatives.

And this is all possible because of Cebu Pacific – my preferred airline 🙂

With Piso Sale like this, the company is giving every Juan a chance to explore the wonders and beauty of this country, which in the long run will boost our Toursim and help our economy. Hats off to CEB for this. I used to think before that travelling by plane is only for those who are well-to-do but this perspective was changed by CEB’s monthly sale promos.

Happy Vacation to all of us! xoxo
