Air Asia’s InspiRED Inflight Menu to Help End HIV/AIDS!

AirAsia launches a burger that can help save lives. The InspiRED Burger features a mouthwatering chicken patty infused with fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, topped with zesty green chili mayonnaise, shredded purple cabbage and tomato on a red beetroot bun. It’s the best burger I’ve eaten while up in the air!

The InspiRED burger was a creation of New York-based chef ambassador Hong Thaimee who wanted to combine the best of both worlds with Thai flavors in an all-American classic. The result? An east-meets-west burger that delivers a satisfying spicy punch!

For every inspiRED burger, 10% of the purchase price goes to a fund to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Besides the burger, you’ll also love the award-winning Santan inflight menu. Here’s a look at what else we loved…

What to do in Guam? Pilgrimage, Shopping and Sightseeing!

I found myself on American soil, enjoying the very best that the island life has to offer, and it only took me a 3-hour flight from Manila.

That’s faster than learning how to say “Hafa Adai,” which means “Hello” in Chamorro, the native language of Guam, by the way.

So, what’s there to do in Guam?

To begin with, Guam is a U.S. island territory in Micronesia in Western Pacific or on the eastern side of the Philippines. It is famous for its tropical beaches, age-old customs and, of course, tax-free discounted goods from the States.

But aside from shopping, many religious Filipinos also frequent the island to learn more about its rich Catholic history, but more specifically, St. Pedro Calungsod.

How to Renew Passports for Minors in the Philippines

It’s less than six (6) months before Yugi’s passport expires this year.  I’ve been putting this off due to my hectic schedule but, at last, I was forced to push through with it due to an unexpected trip soon.

Good thing, Yugi is still a minor so I do not need to make an appointment with the DFA.  What does “minor” mean when it comes to passport renewal?  A minor is one who is 7 years of age and below.  This means that I can go to the DFA anytime and do not need to book ahead.  I just crossed my fingers that the Courtesy Lane would have a short line.

Apparently, each Consular Office (CO) may set a cut-off time or may limit the number of applicants to be served in the Courtesy Lane, depending on the capacity of the CO to ensure the safety and convenience of the public.

FYI:  Who may avail of the Courtesy Lane? Seniors who are 60 years of age and above; PWD’s with proof of disability; minors aged 7 years and below with a parent; OFW’s with proof of status; pregnant women.
