You have MediCard – Why worry?: 7 Reasons why Medicard is one of the strongest HMOs in the Philippines

I and my wife have been a freelancers for quite some time and honestly, we have earned more compared to working at full-time jobs. But recently, we both agreed that one of the things we miss out on is the benefits of having a health card. Having one provides more security for me and my wife especially because health issues are always unpredictable.

Three years ago, my wife and I planned a trip to Boracay for my birthday and, unexpectedly, my son got sick and became hospitalized. We had to cancel our trip. We had no choice because, bottom line, family and their health comes first. Its implications - we were not able to use the plane fare to Boracay and the accommodation arrangements for the trip.

He fought for our independence, built our nation where there was none and made us proud to be Singaporeans. We won’t see another man like him. To many Singaporeans, and, indeed, others, too, Lee Kuan Yew was Singapore.

As Prime Minister he pushed us hard, to achieve what had seemed to be impossible. After he stepped down, he guided his successors with wisdom and tact. In old age, he continued to keep a watchful eye on Singapore. Singapore was his abiding passion. He gave of himself in full measure to Singapore. As he himself put it towards the end of his life,
