Common things found inside an old (relatively) Philippine house:


Earthen wares

Plants inside and outside the house


Quotes on wall

Diploma galore, ancient tv, picture frames

Pictures of godly people near a bed 


Random thing on wall (mostly big spoons)

Weird 'figurines'

I had seen so many youtube videos, but this I have to share to everyone I know, including you. :*

I'm in love with sci-fi stories. I had this fascination as early as elementary, when I read one short story from a Reading subject which blew my young mind (I reread it one time when I was older, like during the college days and I thought, "Wow, a young mind can easily be blown, hmmm").
Anyway, since then, I find ways to have my sci-fi stories (but mostly on books, because I lovem).
Aaand yes, while I was on my internet time, I stumbled upon this video. I watched it n times already, because it's worth it. 

Check out this 8.2/10 rated (by imdb) sci-fi short film by Ferand Peek called Mis-Drop.

And please share your thoughts on the comments section below! :D I would love to hear from you! :D

[A little review: What I like the most about this film is that every little emotion that the protagonist felt, I, the watcher, can feel it, too. Plus it made me ask myself this nagging question (just like every good sci-fi story made me ask myself): What would you do if you're there?]

Financial Journey: Constant Learning

For some time, I was quite obsessed in learning about stocks, investments and other financial services.

This started when my dad told us about Bo Sanchez's book - My Maid Invests in the Stock Market. I've read it n times because it has many lessons on so many levels of a Filipino's life.

Anyway, my dad decided to open a colfinancial account after, and he urged us to do so too. I can't remember too well where I got my 5k minimum seed money to open an account, but I had it so my sister and I opened accounts, too, after months of seeing that my dad's stocks were gaining. 

Hi there business sections
Of course, I had to make a little research on what stocks to buy. And while 'researching', I stumbled upon a Facebook note regarding market updates. (There, I learnt that infrastructure companies are the way to go as of the moment.) At the end of the update, it said that if I want to know more, just PM him. I did, and it turned out to be a free seminar on "How to Build A Solid Financial Foundation" by WFMA (World Financial Marketing Alliance).

It was a life-changing seminar for me. It opened my eyes about the key difference of the nouveau riche (newly rich) and the bourgeois: they know how money works. And the former, the people who worked hard to be rich, will never pass their riches to the next generation if they don't get the financial education that the bourgeois has. 

And that's the mission of WFMA, to help families achieve financial independence and to reach out to the people who are not being reached out by conventional financial services industries, like the masses. 
Example: There are 2 men inside a bank: one has Php 10k and the other one has Php 10M, who do you think will be more accommodated? The answer's the P10M man. But in the Philippines, how many men have P10k and how many have P10M?

WFMA's vision is to revolutionize the financial services industry, that even the P10k man can have the financial services that the P10M man has.

As soon as I grasp the idea that they aim to educate as many Filipinos as possible to have more families to become financially independent, I wanted to become part of it too. 
See, they aim to eradicate one's independence to padala galing abroad, utang, and sustento. I love to see my country free of it!

Also, they conduct other seminars to broaden one's knowledge about the market, other ways to invest, differences/advantages of life/VUL insurances, and so on. That's why I found my home there where I can learn abundantly. 


If you happen to be interested on attending such seminars, please feel free to contact me at 0922-24-25334 or 0915-316-59-46. (Seminar locations: Makati, Lipa Batangas, Cavite City, Baguio City and Pampanga. If located far from here, meeting arrangements can be made, too!)

Meanwhile, I'll share this video for everyone (including me) to contemplate to:

Money Talks: Financial advantage of being a Human Nature dealer

Hola blogfriends! 
I've been a Human Nature dealer for almost two years now - and I've never been inactive. Now I ask myself why - what did I sign up for? What are my benefits?

I did a little research and some calculations, and voila!  Here's a table of product prices from Human Nature, compared to the usual products that we use(d) at home:

While there's less discount at some products like shampoo and soap, we could still get discounts overall. Plus, if you're a diligent dealer, you can get higher discount (up to 30%). I had up to 27.5% discount once. 
It just means that it pays off that I cut the middleman (like supermarkets) and become a dealer, because I save lots.

It's a good feeling to save, y'all.

Not only that, there are lots of plus points on why it's good to switch to Human Nature. Here are some of the reasons (coming from their website):

  • Here's the company's mision: '...sustainably build a global company which will showcase the best of the Philippines and uplift all our people, especially the poor through providing affordable, quality, natural products.'
  • They have partnerships with Gawad Kalinga to build homes and help farmers to be more efficient in their craft by having products in which 100% of the profit that come from it will be for the benefit of GK (e.g. Bug Shield)
  • The products are ORGANIC. Great way to have a healthier lifestyle. :)

Want to become a dealer, too? Here's the link to the form. :) 
(Shameless link, I know. But I need to do it. :D)

Dealer terms are here.
