Introducing The Hub

hub.metblogs

If Metblogs is a city, hub.metblogs is the playground. We kept hearing from people that one of their favorite parts of Metblogs was meeting and interacting with readers and writers from other parts of the world, as well as getting requests for more ways that readers could be involved besides just posting comments. We thought about this for a while and decided that with a network like this, a giant community area where folks from all over the world could hang out, post photos and videos, talk with each other, form groups, play games, send messages, and do about a million other things was probably a pretty fun idea. The Hub is that.

If you have any tech ideas or suggestions join this group and speak up. See you on hub.metblogs!

NAIA 3 open for business

NAIA 3 finally had its first departure yesterday with a Cebu Pacific flight to Caticlan. Almost 5 years has passed since construction was finished on the new terminal. Currently, only domestic flights from Cebu Pacific Air, Philippine Airlines Express and Air Philippines will be utilizing the facility. Other PAL flights will still be at Terminal 2, other international Cebu Pacific flights will still be at Terminal 1 while other domestic Cebu Pacific flights will still be at the old domestic terminal. International flights from both airline companies are expected to utilize NAIA 3 later this year.

Manila among cheapest parking rates in Asia

According to a recent Business World article, Manila has the 3rd cheapest parking rates across Asia Pacific at under $4 a day (about P182). New Delhi has the cheapest at $1.87 and Jakarta goes for about $1.89 with Sydney having the most expensive rates reaching $54 a day.

Mall operators also cited that they do not earn from parking structures (yeah right) and that they charge parking so that people who don’t patronize their malls do not park at their parking structures (someone needs to go back to philo 1).

ABS-CBN News – Manila still has one of lowest parking rates
