Unsullied Perspective Fun Treat # 2 for October

This October Fun Treat is already close. Check out our November Fun Treat instead. Click here...

Last 11 September we announced our two lucky blog readers who got a Starbucks treat on us for our first Fun Treat. 
the LBC confirmed delivery of our September Fun Treat

One of them already confirmed receiving the Starbucks card and she was already on her way to more exciting freebies and fun date with her mom at her preferred Starbucks branch using her Starbucks card.  We really wish her well and we hope that she can share with us her great gift-giving experience thru Unsullied Perspective.  The other one who won our September Fun Treat failed to contact us and the seven day notification period already expired.  The Team decided to give away the forfeited September Fun Treat in addition to our October Fun Treat based on our Fun Treat 2 mechanics.

For the second month giveaway treat, Unsullied Perspective will be giving away one Starbucks card and one SM gift card, that means we will be choosing two lucky blog readers who will get to enjoy our October Fun Treat.


You get to choose your fun treat of either a Starbucks Card or an SM gift card

For the Starbucks card:

The Starbucks card is already loaded with P300.00 that you can use to buy your favorite coffee or sandwich or anything served at Starbucks stores in the Philippines (Take note: the card can only be used at Starbucks branches in the Philippines).  Having a Starbucks card also opens an opportunity for the selected reader to register the card and enjoy a free handcrafted beverage (for first time registrant) plus a yearly complimentary slice of cake on your birthday with your purchase of a handcrafted beverage. When you already consumed the amount, you can reload the card at any Starbucks store in the country to use on your next purchase. Every transaction you do with your card earns you points that entitles you to exciting rewards.

For the SM gift card:

The SM GIFT CARD  is worth 500 pesos that you can readily use anytime and anywhere you wish to shop in over 500 Philippine branches of The SM Store, SM Supermarket, SM Hypermarket, SaveMore, Ace Hardware, Ace Builders, Baby Company, Kultura, Our Home, Forever21, Uniqlo, L'Indochine, Stefanel, Suiteblanco, Uno de 50, Sports Central, SM Appliance Center, Surplus Shop, Toy Kingdom, Pet Express, Watsons and SM owned branches of Nike, Adidas, and Levis.

Unsullied Perspective Fun Treat September Winner

Howdy everyone! Whew! So unfortunate that my phone broke just this morning so I failed to make the post in time as I promised.  Things happen when you least expect it.

Anyway, life has to go on. Now let me get back to the planned activity for the day.  I can't help but wonder why I might have missed the perfect ingredient for our September Fun Treat to earn enough raves from our blog readers.  I still lack that magical advertising tool to entice people to start this sharing activity.  Well, I guess one reason was because I have not informed friends and relatives about this simply because I intended to give away the treat to my genuine blog followers (family and friends can be easily reached should I need to give them something any time of day.)   Also in that way I will not be biased in my decision and will not favor anyone just because I personally know somebody.  This treat is intended for those people who appreciated what I do, not because they know me but because of that interest in those information that they find valuable and helpful. 

Anyway, we cannot keep the gifts to ourselves so now is the time to share a good deal with these people. The participant who completed our mechanics and truly inspired us to share this treat posted this:

One of our winners is Martha Guiao who will receive the Starbucks card from us. Thank you Martha for sharing with us your thoughts and hope to see you and your mom enjoying our Fun Treat. As for the other card that we have to give away, we have changed the gameplan a little bit since the post about the fun treat failed to earn enough participants at the prescribed time.  So we decided to pool our Facebook followers then we assigned an entry number based on the order when they joined/liked our FB page.  After that we used an automatic number generator to select the lucky blog reader and here is the result:  Entry number 1011 that belongs to Daisy Lee Ampong.  You will receive a Starbucks card also.  You can use the card to purchase from any Starbucks branches.  Please send an email to so we can send you the instructions on how to claim the card. If we do not receive your email after seven days, it would mean forfeiture of your winning.

Please keep on visiting and we shall post our mechanics for our October FunTreat #2.

How to File for PhilHealth Maternity and Newborn Care Package

Updated Step by Step Guide on how to apply for SSS salary loan online


Some of our blog readers requested for a post about Philhealth that will help them defray the cost of maternity related expenses.  Do you know that Philhealth members can also avail of the Newborn Care Package aside from the maternity care package? That means aside from the hospitalization benefit accorded to members, your newborn is also covered by your Philhealth. I have summarized for you the steps to avail of this benefit.

For employed members:
Before you take your two months maternity leave of absence from work, make sure that you have already inform your HR Department that you will avail of the Philhealth.  That will give them ample time to prepare your Certificate of Monthly Contribution that you will need as supporting document to your claim form.
Should you wish to accomplish the form before your scheduled leave:
1. Download a copy of the CF1 form from the Philhealth website and print two copies. You need two copies, one for you and one for your baby, that means two Philhealth claims.
2. Accomplish two copies of the CF1 or Claim Form 1 and have the Employer Information part be signed by your company's authorized representative.
3. If you are admitted to a Philhealth registered hospital, inform the admitting personnel that you will use your Philhealth. They usually provide the claim forms CF1, CF2 and for newborn care package CF3.  The CF2 and CF3 will be accomplished by the hospital or clinic. That means you only need to submit your previously accomplished CF1 with your certificate of contribution.
4. Once you completed all forms, submit it to the hospital's Philhealth personnel prior to your discharge for them to compute the Philhealth benefit that shall be deducted from your hospital bill.  The forms to be submitted are:
     a.   For you (maternity package): CF1, CF2 and certification (this entitles you to 6,500 normal delivery and 19,000 caesarean delivery of maternity benefit deducted from your hospital expenses)
       These documents are usually submitted to the philhealth personnel in the hospital prior to discharge.

     b.   For baby (newborn package): CF1, CF2, CF3, your certificate of contribution, baby's birth certificate and the newborn screening stub that will be provided to you by the hospital. (This entitles you to 1,750 maximum benefit).
      These documents are usually submitted to the hospital after you secure your child's birth certificate and newborn screening test result. You can submit your claim to the hospital for them to forward to Philhealth or you can go directly to Philhealth office to file this claim.  Make sure that you file this within the 60 days period.

For voluntary/self employed members
You need same forms as above CF1, CF2, CF3 but instead of certificate of contribution, you need to attach the Member Data Record (MDR) that you can get from Philhealth office. And you also need to provide copies of latest receipt of payment of monthly contribution.

By the way, included in the newborn care package are BCG and Hepatitis  B vaccines, vitamin K administration , eye prophylaxis, the newborn screening test, and breastfeeding advice/counselling.

Remember, if you are a paying member you are entitled to these benefits.

If you are not yet a member of Philhealth, it is best to act now. Read our post on how to register online. Read More...
