Joining the Daloy Dunong Plant Tour by Maynilad was quite an eye-opener for me. If I will be asked, I think every customer of Maynilad should be able to request a tour like the one we had, not only to appreciate Maynilad’s service but also to increase awareness on how we can all help protect our water supply and resources.

My husband had just registered our car today and he said that all fees he paid had increased compared to last year. It just made us realized more that times aren’t financially improving since we have to allot more when it comes to our car. It’s also a great reminder that we need to check how we spend and how we use our resources efficiently so that there will be more left on our savings.
