When I told a friend about Captain’s Log announcing Cebu Pacific had an ongoing 10 Peso a ticket promo, my friend immediately sought out his friends and they stampeded in the direction of the nearest airline ticket office. They were planning to get tickets to Boracay. I think they did, although my friend told me with some amusement, that the tickets were actually “Ten Pesos plus plus plus plus plus.” What’s the “plus plus plus plus plus?” I asked. “All together, it comes out to 850 Pesos,” my friend replied. Still, not bad -but then they discovered the promo tickets aren’t valid during Holy Week. Fine print strikes back! (Captain’s Log follows up with the P10 Ticket Effect).

In the fluffy department, The McVie Show Season 4 has a hilarious account of Rustom Padilla’s dramatic announcement -interrupted by Keanna Reeve’s having to pee (Jessica Zafra was stunned). And shockingly, I recognize most of the entries on his list of life-defining songs.
