Medical Insurance to Supplement the Gap

I come to remember today about my supposed appointment with my oncologist.  I think I should have seen her last month, but because I got too engrossed with bowling, the medical appointment slipped from my mind.  Oh yes I know, seeing my oncologist shouldn’t be taken for granted even though I was issued a clean bill of health. 

Who would want to be sick nowadays, let alone be afflicted with a dreadful disease such as the big C? Ugh! I’m sure most of you are aware that I once had the dreadful disease called Cancer. It’s the kind of illness that could have drained us of our finances had it not for the miraculous blessings via the medical insurance provided by hubby’s company employer. I am fortunate that all the medical expenses have been covered by the insurance.  But every once in a while, I can't help asking myself what could have happened to me if we had to shoulder even just a portion of the huge amount we spent on those skyhigh-priced treatments I had.  We haven’t heard of the Medicare supplement insurance before, but I realized, it is a must for those who’s got only the basic Medicare insurance coverage. I came across the Medicare on the web and learned about helpful infos regarding medicare and being diagnosed with cancer before acquiring medical insurance.

Well, we all are predisposed to all kinds of illnesses but we need not worry if we are armed with the right medical insurances. Search here for the right Medicare insurance for you and you can never go wrong.

My mind is blank.  In as much as I want to jot down all the thoughts that run in my head, just can’t.  All I can clearly put in writing is the big question WHY!.  Why? ..I ask cos I could not find the answer..  just that!  Pardon me for this quizzical nonsense but I think I just need to find a hole to vent a little.  I’m glad I have this blog.  It’s like a confidante.  although not the good one that would keep secrets. Ha ha.. Well, it's not my concern!  As long as I can unload, it'll be fine.  This is my blog after all!

Grab another promo deal

As many of you know,  I have this sort  of addiction to Peking Ducks or even to just ordinary fried itik.  And as one,  I was lured to bite this Peking Duck Kinulob promo deal!   Eh, why wouldn’t I?  I was seeing a very luscious looking Peking duck!   No rehab yet  for my kind of addiction, hence, no controlling to grabbing one whenever possible.  I bought two (2) vouchers for Php297 each, though it's kinda expensive.   I remember having bought  fried ducks in Victoria, Laguna when we passed by that town a year ago.  The taste was A-okay for the very cheap price of only Php190 each.   Seeing this SaveonPinoy  promo deal photo, I expected it to be a li'l  better since it is labelled as Peking Duck

They gave three (3) locations to pick up the product.  Caltex station in NAIA Rd, Pque.,  Caltex in Alabang and Caltex in SLEX.  The last location is just right I thought, since we planned to go to Tagaytay on a weekend.  Unfortunately, this Tagaytay plan didn’t push through thus, picking-up the product became a problem for me.  We’re from the farthest north of MetroManila while this Peking duck kinulob pick up points are all in the south.   It was an issue with my “personal driver”.  He wanted to just let it go as it is not worth the long trip. But the addict in me, wouldn't agree. He gave-in at the end
We drove the long road to Paranaque and reached the mentioned gasoline station.  I looked for the store with Perry's Peking Duck signage inside the gas station area but didn’t see one.   “What’s this? Am I deceived again? “ I worriedly asked myself.  I inquired one gas-boy and  he pointed me to a closed one-way mirrored glass door that looks like an abandoned stock room.  After which  a lady came out and confirmed she's with Perry's.  She asked for the voucher and went to the adjacent stockroom looking place.  When she came out, she handed me two (2) of this:

Which is too far lookin' from this:

Or this:

Didn't complain anymore.  Instead, I asked about their Hungarian turkey sausage.

Looks deliciously juicy in their promo photo thus I wanted to try even if the  price is a bit expensive. Not  bad, if to try only once anyway.  So I asked how much and I was surprised to hear her say "175ps po per 500gram." Haha! Ridiculous!  Can you see its price in the photo above?

I immediately bought a pack and she handed me this.

I have cooked and ate this Hugarian Turkey sausage and in fairness, found it good.  Sad though that I forgot to take photo after it's been cooked.

Again, I learnt another lesson in grabbing deals from these group buying sites.  Not all are real bargains!
But as long as it won't leave remarkable damage, it's just fine with me.  Woot!

Hello September!

Oh my!  I am now hearing Christmas carols being played on air.   This thing automatically comes along with the months of "ber".   Here in the Philippines, we have the longest Christmas celebration.  And yes, today is the first day  heralding the joyful season of the year.  Welcome September!  

I was thinking of posting a Christmas  music here but this Earth, Wind and Fire's September  is more appropriate I think.  I love this classic danceable music!  Besides, this tune has left a mark on my memory as it has been part of a happy ancient time! Lol!   Dance on!

Be cool as September!  But just like a mayonnaise,"keep cool but don't chill".
Have a wonderful day everyone!
