Money Changer


Money changer in Lucky Plaza

Every time when you going to travel out of your country, one of the things you should do is to change your money from current currency to another currency. This is what you could do to help you benefit more.

Check out currency rates via online
Assuming you have already plan your budget for travel. Before you go to money changer and change the intended currency, log into internet and check out what is the current exchange rate. Be sure to check out the rates at least 1 month before your travel date. By doing so you could make some adjustment to your budget. If 1 month is too early for you, alternatively you could check out the rates 1-2 weeks before your travel date.

Inquire with few money changers
After you know what is the exchange rate, then you could start to go to money changers. Strongly recommended to go to a place such as shopping mall whereby there are few money changers in 1 place. Go to few money changers and make some inquiries. Don’t ask about the rate as every money changer will give same reply but ask how much you will get for x amount of money.

Change with the best rate
For example you want to change 1000 Singapore dollar to Philippines pesos and you inquire few money changers about the rates. Money changer A give 30,000 peso, money changer B give 30,500 peso and money changer C give 31,000 peso. So you choose the money changer that give you the highest rates. Lower charges from money changer, the higher rate you will get.

Cebu Pacific Airlines

Up to date I have been to Philippines for 7 times. For that number of times, I have tried a few airlines that fly to Philippines. All the airlines that I fly with are budget airlines. Therefore I have decided to give my honest review on one of the airlines I fly with recently, Cebu Pacific Air. For disclaimer purposes this review is not being sponsored by Cebu Pacific.

On September 2016, my brother, my sister in law, my nephew and I travel to Philippines for the purpose of visiting my sister in law family in province. My brother decided to choose Cebu Pacific Air as his first choice. Flying with Cebu Pacific is convenient because it fly to every part of the Philippines and consider one of the common airlines in Philippines.

Personally I have fly with Cebu Pacific 4 times. To be exact I started to use their service since 2015 as my brother who suggested to use this airlines over other airlines. To be honest I am very happy with their services. The crews are friendly and very helpful especially when they attend to the elderly and physically challenged.

Base on my personal experiences with Cebu Pacific Air, I am very pleased with their services from checking in, boarding and upon arrival. In fact for me who is physically challenged since birth, I do feel comfortable to travel by myself to Philippines cause I know that I will be in good care with Cebu Pacific cabin crew.

So far taking off from Singapore to any part of Philippines there are no flight delays and in fact the flight always on time or 10 minutes earlier. The delay usually happen in one of the few airports in Philippines. The delay due to the busyness of the other airports. Overall I enjoy flying with Cebu Pacific and I recommend this airline to be your first choice flight when you travel to Philippines.

Sit back and relax

Things you could do to have a pleasant flight

Things you could do to have a pleasant flight

We want to be as comfortable as possible during short or long flight. This is what you have to do before you recline your seat and set off to dreamland.

Be mindful by checking out who is behind your seats. You never know your fellow passengers is trying to reach for his bag or has hot drinks on his table. What if behind you is a little child. Due to your silly actions, his or her little fingers may get pinched which will surely cause that child to howl. When that happen everyone nearby you will get mad at you.

Be polite by letting the passengers behind you know that you’re about to recline your seat. If you are seated behind a reclined seat and you need some space, politely ask the passengers in front of you to adjust his or her seat slightly. Being polite at all times will help you and other fellow passengers to have a pleasant flight.

Be sure to book your seat at the emergency exit if you ever need extra legroom. This can be done during the time you book flight ticket via online or over the counter.
