New way to fly—using jet biofuel from recycled waste

When Cathay Pacific Airways took the delivery flight of its first A350-1000 from the Airbus factory in Toulouse, France, to Hong Kong on June 19, the brand-new aircraft was powered in part by blended biofuel derived from sugarcane. If that's impressive, wait a couple more years: by 2020, Cathay Pacific's massive fleet will start running in part on jet biofuel no longer from crops, but from recycled household garbage. While all the major airlines are trying to up one another by tricking out their fleet with the most advanced and state-of-the-art in-flight amenities to improve the traveler's cabin experience, the Hong Kong-based airline is taking it a step further.

Pets and the city–guide to pet-friendly malls

Our pugs are well-traveled. They have been to Tagaytay, Baguio, Sagada. They have taken plane rides (on Philippine Airlines), frolicked on the shores of Boracay (where the beach patrol said dogs aren't welcome on White Beach, but looked the other way after learning we flew all the way from Manila), gone island- hopping in Puerto Princesa, and stayed at hotels.

Three steps from heaven: Boracay B.C. (before ‘cesspool’)

  The first time Louie Cruz set foot in Boracay, he found it so beautiful that he described the island paradise in Malay, Aklan province, as "three steps away from heaven, almost perfect."   Wading into the water, he recalled seeing colorful tropical fish circling him, "looking very friendly and curious."   This was the early 1970s, when Cruz --- the third of seven children of the late journalist and diplomat J.V. Cruz --- flew in from Germany, where the family was based, for a vacation in Manila.   Invited by the Elizaldes to a five-day stay in their Boracay property, he flew with the group in a private plane that landed on an improvised airs...Keep on reading: Three steps from heaven: Boracay B.C.
