Philippine Airlines Imposes Late Check In Fee for Domestic Flights

To those traveling via PAL domestic, don’t be late. Late check-in fee of P1,500 effective today. See memo for new domestic flight rules for both PAL & PAL Express. It does pay to read the fine print on fare rules and restrictions, in which a lot of us neglect to do so. You get to digest the next solutions or you’d understand what risk are you taking when travelling, may it be physically, mentally, emotionally and most especially financially. In the era of budget travel,  same aircraft, same fare rules and restrictions, same accommodation—most especially from big airports like that of NAIA  Terminal 1, 2 or 3 for that matter. No one is special even the elderly, women, children, PWDs are not treated as such anymore.

Here’s a copy of the New Memo by PAL and PAL EXPRESS.

AVIDA TOWERS PRIME TAFT CHALLENGE

I  joined the AVIDA TOWERS PRIME TAFT Challenge last weekend!

The amazing race type challenge was held on the occasion of the grand opening of the Avida Towers Prime Taft Project Pavillion (Showroom) located at Taft Avenue in between LRT stations Gil Puyat and Vito Cruz, and just next to the actual site of the real estate project.

There were 9 tasks that we needed to accomplish all involving places of interests located just minutes away from Avida Towers Prime Taft.  Tasks will be revealed one after the other and after completing the previous requirements.  Two groups of six members set-off for the challenge immediately after lunch.

Here we are doing task-after-task and having our picture taken after completion:

Avida Land calls on active young achievers to experience the A+ life in a convenient and secure haven along the University strip of Taft Avenue. With the opening of the Avida Towers Prime Taft Project Pavilion, situated right beside the condo site, prospective buyers can have an actual tour and feel of the comfortable and breathable homes exclusively designed and crafted by Avida for the live-work-play lifestyle of students, young professionals and entrepreneurs.

Avida Towers Prime Taft_Day Shot

Located along the peaceful and secure area of Taft Avenue in Pasay City, Avida Towers Prime Taft provides amenities and services of a thoughtfully designed condominium and the comfort and convenience of living near business districts, commercial centers, schools, hospitals, public transport stations, and other major establishments.

Avida Towers Prime Taft offers Studio, 1-BR and 2-BR units with access to the property’s clubhouse, adult and kiddie swimming pools, and sunset deck. The property’s amenities, specially designed to suit the lifestyle of active young achievers, also include jogging paths, an open lawn, outdoor gym equipment, function rooms, and a study hall called “The Nook @ Prime Taft”.

20130505124002908Like all Avida condominium projects, Avida Towers Prime Taft units are built with the five condo must-haves of free-flowing air and sunlight, fewer units per floor, sensible amenities, emergency power in common areas and inside residential units, and easy payment terms. The project will also be managed and maintained by the Ayala Property Management Corp., the same group that implements quality standards among all Ayala properties.

20130505123856658

With Avida’s track record of providing homebuyers a stress-free buying experience, coupled with the convenience and accessibility offered by Avida Towers Prime Taft, it’s little wonder why the development has been attracting investors who want to take advantage of the assured appreciation of the property’s value over time.

20130505123736064

Avida Towers Prime Taft’s favorable location also offers a great business opportunity for homebuyers and investors. With the assistance of Leasing Services by Avida (LSA), homeowners can make their units income-generating by having them leased out to students, employees, entrepreneurs, and other individuals or families who want to enjoy the wonders of the A+ life in the center of Pasay City and in the comfort, convenience and security of an Avida property.
