Missing Robredo's Pilot is Cebu's local hero in delivering cobra anti-venom for a snake-bitten patient


Captain Jessup M. Bahinting, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Mactan-based aircraft rental company, Aviatour Air, was the pilot of the ill-fated plane carrying Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo.




Capt. Bahinting immediately sent one of his light planes to Camiguin Wednesday afternoon to pick up four vials of anti-venom from Camiguin General Hospital despite stormy weather that eventually saved the life of a Cebu Zoo keeper, Ronaldo Aventurado, who was bitten by a King Cobra.

City Traffic Operations Management (Citom) Board Chairman Sylvan Jakosalem said, "He didn’t hesitate to help when I called him."

Capt. Bahinting and his flying school were due to receive a Lifesaver Award from the Cebu City government, according to Jakosalem. 


Let us all pray for the safety of Capt. Jessup Bahinting, his co-pilot Nepalese Kshitiz Chand, and DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo.

VECO Launches New Cebu Brownouts Reporting via TEXT



The Visayan Electric Company (VECO) consumers now have another way of reporting or inquiring power outages in their area after the power distribution utility launched this week its ASKVECO Outage text feature.






Recognizing the importance of costumer convenience, VECO senior vice-president for engineering, Sebastian Lacson, Sr. said in a press conference that with the new facility, consumers are assured that their inquiries on power outages and power restorations will be responded to right away.

"This is also part of Veco’s serious commitment in utilizing technology for convenience and easy access to customers," Lacson added.

VECO consumers are given three options to report or inquire a power outage. Such options include:

BIG FIRE hits GAISANO MALL in CEBU



A fire hits Gaisano Capital South on Leon Kilat St., Cebu City on Friday, 12:42 a.m, December 23, 2011. At least 30 fire trucks and several firefighters from all over Cebu province continue battling a predawn fire for more than 17 hours that gutted an eight-storey shopping mall.








A mall security guard has said he heard a loud explosion followed by a thick smoke. The fire started at the second floor of the shopping mall and has reached a general alarm.

As of this posting, fire officials have yet to determine the cause of the fire and the amount of damage it caused. Firefighters continue fighting blazes. They actually used aerial ladders to aim their hoses and water cannons.

The mall had earlier scheduled a Christmas midnight sale Friday night.
