BPI Holy Week Banking Hours (Schedule)

Bank of the Philippine Islands is geared up to service the requirements of our clients for the coming Holy Week. Our contingency plan is already in place and includes ATM teams on call to service the cash needs of our customers. We expect heavy withdrawals during this time so we encourage our clients to plan their cash requirements early enough to avoid the rush. We are also reminding ATM users to always be on alert and take note of the Security / PAALALA / Safety reminders when using the ATM: Check the ATM area before using it. If anything or anyone appears suspicious, leave at once. Do not use an ATM that appears to have tampered card or cash slots. If you withdraw in the evening, do use an ATM in a well-lighted place. Never accept any help from a stranger or good samaritan. Get your card, cash and receipt at once. Do not count your money at the ATM in front of other people. Call your bank if you need assistance. BPI and BPI Family branches and Express Banking Centers in malls will b

Pro-Environment Baguio Councilors

This page contains the names of Baguio City councilors who did NOT sign and endorse SM's expansion plans which will kil l 182 trees at Luneta Hill. First is Hon Richard Carino who fought hard to save the trees, then Edison Bilog, Phylian Weygan-Allan, Isabelo Cosalan, Peter Fianza and Karminn Dinney Cheryl Yangot. Remember them. VOTE FOR THEM next year. They care for Baguio and its environment. This page will continue to educate the citizenry on environmental concerns and will seek ideas from members and from the said honorable councilors how to make Baguio a greener, safer and cleaner city.

Two hundred twenty seven million hectares of land in developing countries -- an area the size of Western Europe--has been sold or leased to multinational investors since 2001. The bulk of these land acquisitions have taken place over the past two years. Think about this. The Philippines is not exempted. Think about SM. If these trend continues, the entire planet would be sold to international investors within the next two decades. No one can foresee the implications of this but they wil be far-reaching. In African and sub continental India, large tracts of land are being bought. In many instances, local governments or governments are the ones selling the land (Does it remind you of the SM deal?) And in Asia, traditional homelands are being sold to companies who now are in power in food, biofuel, real estate and rest and recreation facilities. Whatever the shape of the transactions they all show one major development:land has become currency in the hands of politicians, investors and sp

Why trees in Baguio matter

Woods, and the trees are essential to life. In the city, they provide oxygen, clean smog particulates, absorb CO2, raise water level, prevent water runoff and erosion and ensure genetic continuity. They have a myriad of different benefits for both wildlife and people. They play host to a s pectacular variety of wildlife, provide us with raw materials and shelter, inspire our imaginations and our creativity. The almost magical, mystical quality of woods makes them a great place for relaxation and recreation. A walk in the woods can give anyone a feeling of peace and tranquillity. Most of us have fond childhood memories of playing on or around trees. A world without trees and woods would be barren and bare. We don't want trees to be cut or removed. The Baguio Woodland Trust will hard hard for this. Baguio Woodland Trust

Boycott SM everywhere

Until they stop their expansion project that will result in the death of 182 trees on Luneta Hill, Baguio City, until they start improving the working conditions of their employees, until they moderate their greed - BOYCOTT SM AND ITS AFFILIATES!
