Makati Medical Center Patient ID Card

I was surprised to learn last April that Makati Medical Center (MMC) patients can now have their own Patient ID card. I was having my blood tests taken at the Nuclear Medicine Department that time when I was asked by the hospital employee if I already have my own Patient ID card and I said no. The person I was talking to asked me then if I want to have one, and when I said yes, she took my picture right there and then and asked me to get my ID card at the Customer Service counter downstairs.


Here’s what the MMC Patient ID card looks like. The front part of the card bears the picture of the hospital.


The back part of the card contains pertinent patient information, like patient’s name, birthday and patient ID number. Every time you’re having a laboratory test or a diagnostic procedure, you simply present this Patient ID card to avoid getting asked repeatedly for your personal data.

If you still don’t have an MMC Patient ID Card yet and want to have one, all you need to do is go to the Customer Service (CS) counter at the hospital lobby, have your picture taken there and give the CS employee a few more minutes to process it. The best thing about it is it’s free!

Adding Logos to Business Checks: Is It a Good Branding Strategy?

From large multinational brands to local stores, businesses of all size compete with each other to get their brand noticed. Businesses thrive to get more eyes on their brand hoping to boost their bottomline. Among other branding real estates, business checks continue to be a favored medium. Businesses often order custom next day checks with colored logo. Business checks are not for customers. Unlike pamphlets and leaflets, they cannot be handed to random individuals near storefronts. Businesses use checks to pay other businesses, independent contractors, employees, and utility companies. Considering their limited reach, is it a good idea to invest in checks with logos? In this post, we take a deep dive and understand the 5 key advantages of buying checks with logos.


You Can Get Them for Free: Adding a logo to business checks may sound expensive but, in most cases, it’s really affordable. Some online check printing firms even allow customers to get their company logos printed for free. If you are in the habit of issuing a lot of business checks, then there is a good chance you have an accounting software. Accounting packages such as Quickbooks allow you to upload and print your business logos on checks. This means if you are ordering them from the right place or printing them yourself, you can get checks with logos for free. Getting a branding space for no extra cost is a proposition difficult to turn down.

People Don’t Throw Away Checks: The problem with business cards and pamphlets is that people often throw them away without even giving them a proper glance. That’s something that never happens with checks. People not only keep the check they ensure they remain undamaged before handing them over to the teller. Now, because a paper check represents money, people are much more likely to pay attention, which includes the company logo.

Checks Have Business Contact Information: Business checks almost always have contact information. Coupled with the beautiful colored logo and the contact info, these checks serve a purpose of being temporary business cards. Businesses that send out a significant number of checks each month can expect to get a consistent flow of sales queries. Mainly because the contact information features right alongside with the logo.

Boosts Word-of-Mouth Marketing: Paper checks with no customizations are boring and they never get anyone talking. However, a custom-designed business check with a colored logo almost always makes a positive impression. People receiving these checks often show them off to friends and family members before cashing them. With the popularization of app-based check deposit, these checks remain with recipients even after the money has been cashed.

It Serves a Dual Purpose: Let’s not lose sight of the fact that a check’s primary purpose is to transfer funds. If you are running a business, you probably need checks anyways for your day-to-day operations. The branding is just an added bonus. So, as long as you need paper checks for your business, it makes sense to add a beautiful logo and reap the dual benefits.

LSGH Grade School Student Council Officers’ Leadership Immersion and Benchmarking Program in Hong Kong

A group of students from La Salle Green Hills (LSGH) and the Academy of St. John (an LSGH-supervised school) had their Leadership Immersion and Benchmarking Program at La Salle Primary School and Chan Sui Ki Primary School in Hong Kong last year.

Justin, together with 17 more SC officers, were accompanied by Mr. Erbin M. Vila (SC moderator) and Mr. Niccolo Paolo M. Agcaoili (Student Activities Coordinator). The delegates from the two schools all stayed at the YMCA Youth Village in Kowloon, Hong Kong for 5 days, from October 23-27, 2017.

At the Ku Tung Elderly Center

The students’ itinerary included school tours/classroom observations, interaction with student leaders, trip to the History Museum, outreach activity at Ku Tung Elderly Center and Hong Kong Disneyland tour.

This leadership training was a fulfilling experience for the boys as they learned to become more independent, responsible and compassionate individuals and better servant leaders.
