Medicard: Family Health Insurance for Online Freelancers in the Philippines

My wife and I have been doing online freelancing for a couple of years now. With freelancing, we get to enjoy our own work time in the comforts of our home. But with this setup, we don't have any company in the Philippines where we can enjoy benefits like health insurance.

Now that we have a baby boy, I can't help but think of ways to insure my family in case of sickness. We were just dependent on savings and salary for medical emergencies. So, I looked for health insurance companies that could cater to independent small families like us. 

Upon thorough research on the Internet, I found out about Medicard Philippines. They have family packages. So I went through the online application found here. I selected the family package semi-private without the 5-star hospitals with 2 dependents (wife and son-less than a year old). A couple of days after, a representative from the company called me and verified the information. Then I paid P29,915 through Unionbank deposit to finish the application. I got a discount for paying through a bank deposit.



Everything went well. Joy, the representative is responsive through email and answered any questions we had. We waited for 2 weeks before we received our cards and booklets.

Our package covers P60,000 per person per illness during the 1-year period. It also includes basic dental procedures and annual physical checkup. 



My wife and I are happy with the overall transaction with the company. Now we have peace of mind in case of medical emergencies. We just pray that we'll never have to use this card for any grave ones.

Honda Beat Scooter Review

After using my Honda Beat scooter for a year, I decided to make this review for the benefit of those who are  planning to buy this scooter. I'm not gonna lie, the points you will read below contain more positive statements about this motorcycle simply because I loved it and still loving it. I will try my best to sound unbiased.

Climbing Osmena Peak Traverse to Kawasan Falls in Cebu

At 1,013 meters above sea level, we reached the summit of Osmena Peak in Dalaguete, Cebu. It is considered to be the highest in the island. We were welcomed by a beautiful sunset view created by the sun hiding from the slopes of the mountains of Negros.

Trekking from Budlaan to Sirao Peak in Cebu

The Babag trekking group did another adventurous trekking. This time from Budlaan to Sirao; to conquer Sirao Peak.

We trekked thru the Kabang River in Budlaan then climb Sirao Peak which is approximately 750 Meters above sea level.

How we went there:

We met at sunny hills in Talamban then rode a habal-habal (25 Pesos each) going to Budlaan. Then from Budlaan, we went down to Kabang river and started trekking. We passed by 4 wonderful waterfalls then we   trekked to Sirao Peak. This whole trek started from 9 AM and ended at 5PM(where we reached the summit).

From Sirao, we rode habal2 again down to JY square. Fare is 50 pesos each.
























Green Pasture at the Green Lagoon Park in Compostela Cebu

Everytime I get to have a holiday break, I always see to it that I spend it with the things I love. One of these things is going to the beaches.

199Jobs Review

I am always on the lookout for additional income streams especially when it's online and I can earn it from home. Recently, I have discovered 199jobs.com. This is a website where you sell your services for just 199 PHP. If you are familiar with Fiverr, then this, for me, looks like local version of it. This post is my 199jobs review.

I registered to the site and see if I can make some money out of it. Registration is pretty straight forward and if you have an email or a Facebook account, you are good to go.

I am a certified online marketing specialist. So, I listed my service as a website auditor under digital marketing category. You can see my service here.

On the day my listing was published,  I already received my first order. I finished the task within 3 days as promised from my sales copy then notified the buyer and the buyer completed the task on his end. After that, I received my payment of 159 PHP. 199jobs gets 20% of each completed order. That is how they make money.
