The COVID-19 pandemic has presented immense challenges to industries around the world. With mobility restrictions in place, business owners had to rethink their operations and adjust to navigate the uncertainties in the new normal. Although some companies were able to adapt and seamlessly shift to the new norm, the process was not easy with many struggling with financial losses and temporary business closures. A survey from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) released September last year reported that the Philippine economy experienced the worst impacts of the pandemic. The Philippines logged the highest number of business closures and layoffs among its peers in Southeast Asia. Despite that, Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP and Head of PLDT & Smart Enterprise and International Business Groups, said that resilience is one of the core values that helped businesses conquer the challenges of the pandemic.

Travelling Tips for the Holidays

Traveling is, indeed, one of the most indulging activities one could ever experience. People get to discover the most exciting beaches, the undiscovered taverns, and the virgin forests.
However, along with all of these great places are the risks of getting into trouble, especially if the person is not yet familiar of the new surroundings and environment.
Here’s a list of some safety tips that one can use when on travel.
1. Do the homework.
Like any kind of decisions people have to make, it is always important to know the area they will be visiting so as to familiarize themselves with the laws, locations of best tourist spots, and the kind of people they have to deal with.
Going to a place without having the slightest idea what it is all about is just as bad as going to the wilderness with beasts lurking everywhere and there’s no gadget to protect them.
2. Never travel alone.
Of course, there are times when people just want to be alone and unwind so as to shed off all of the hustle and bustle of urban living.
However, with the imminent danger lurking everywhere, it is better to travel with someone than to risk their lives traveling alone.
After all, people will never know what will happen next as soon as they arrive at their destinations, especially when it is their first time on the area.
3. Planning.
When traveling, it is extremely important to plan ahead. This will give the traveler enough time to decide on which things need to be on top priority and which should be considered at a later time.
Besides, when a person has enough time to plan things ahead, he or she will be able to think on things that will protect them when they are on travel already.Always remember to bring necessary stuffs like some personal effects, and everything.
4. Always be prepared for emergencies.
It does not necessarily mean that people must be pessimistic on the way they plan their travels. It’s just that they have to consider any possible emergencies and be prepared for it.
As they say, an ounce of prevention is always better than a pound of cure. So as for me, I always bring with me Diatabs, just in case my tummy aches and have the loose bowel movement issues.
5. Be aware of hotel accommodations.
It is best to choose hotels that are equipped with the best innovative safety equipment. This is to ensure that travelers will be safe once they are alone in their room.
So, whether a person is traveling for the first time or for the nth time, it is still best to keep in mind safety traveling tips such as these one so that the experience will always be a gratifying one.
