51% of Pinoys are poor or mahirap

The record high 16.9% of families experiencing hunger at least once in the past three months was reached again in September 2006, according to the new SWS survey.

This amounts to 2.9 million households experiencing hunger out of a projected base of 17.4 million households in the country.

UnionBank EON fund transfer still not working...

I stopped using UnionBank EON for quite sometime as the service I was expecting to get did not happen sooner than I desired. I also noticed that using the ATM in other banks does not work at times and can be disappointing.

Recently, I have a prospective club member based abroad who can only pay me through such medium. Still, the fund transfer feature to other banks does not work. The mobile phone reloading is not accessible either. Picking up a cybercheck may be ok assuming one has lots of time to do errands.

Still, I have to get UnionBank EON again soon.

Chikka: The New Multinational

I got asked to give some thoughts when this article was being developed. I just realized that it is already online but my attributes are not correct. I'm no longer president of PICS. I wish I was attributed as simply of DigitalFilipino.com and my name spelled correctly.

Chikka is certainly doing well. They are working very hard in making their services sustainable. Furthermore, their recent CMMI Level 5 certification only shows their level of commitment in getting their products done with high quality processes.

I certainly believe that Chikka will always continue to innovate.

Joining Philippine SEO Contest 2.0

Before the last club eyeball of the DigitalFilipino.com Club, I expressed to Marc my intent of joining this year's Philippine SEO Contest 2.0 for fun. I hardly join competitions but I guess this one is really worth doing.

Cheers to Marc for he is surely making activities that deserves to be recognized in Philippine Internet history.
