Filipinos Do Yearn to Invest.

I just arrived at my flat after our usual Wednesday homegroup (ie: Bible study, praise and worship, catch-up, caring group updates, etc.)  And this Wednesday was one of those that we call “socials”, wherein we update each other about the latest events in our lives, and prayers we want to uplift by the group.  It was heartwarming, especially that I have been away for a month and 2 weeks due to my outside fieldwork from our place.  It’s nice to finally be back, receive and give support from/to my caring group friends. :)

Day 20: What are the 10 most significant events in your life?

Browsing over the remainder of my 30-day blog challenge, I realized just how long has been my “entry backlogs”, and today, I’m making a pact to be more determined to complete it. ^_^ [haha!]

Anyway, here is my list for this 20th day challenge:

  • 15th of October – my birthday! \(“,)/
  • At age 10, it was my first time to be in Manila to compete for the NAMCYA and play at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines (CCP).
  • During high school days when we practice for the track and field competition in Manila during summer months (March or April).  Being part of this sports in my early years has developed my inter-personal skills, self-discipline and confidence.

We Should Be Grateful of Our Pains

As I looked back at the Bounce series of PICC Feast, I am amazed that it was this series title because the words “bounce back” have been one of my fave’s since then.  As I reflect on this talk, I always recall the most, major tragic storm that made way to test my character, to strengthen my family’s bond and to deepen our faith to the Great Guy above.  Just want to share this blog post that I wrote almost two years ago: _(“,)/


Finally, Home Sweet Home =)

One thousand eight hundred two days ago
…whoooaw! That long?  It seems just yesterday, but just add-on another 24 days and it will mark the fifth year since we lost the house that I called home for the first 20 years of my life.

On Getting Personal and Social Networking Sites

Just this afternoon, our company had the 2nd quarter update of what has been and what we will be looking ahead for the next 6 to 12 months.  Aside from the usual operational and internal mandatory to-do lists, one of the key points discussed was on the branding and marketing advocacy of our company in terms of using the social networking sites to promote company branding.  It was encouraged for all of us to join in LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, to name a few.  Reasons? We are the “company”.  Social networking was able to link different people (including *the* “big people”) and expand networking – thus, can provide indirect social marketing through us for the company.

My Everyday Prayer

LORD,

’Cause me to do GREAT things as if they are little,
…because I do it in Your POWER.

And ‘cause me to do LITTLE things as if they are great,
      …because I do it in Your NAME.

Amen.

Investing is a Plan

“Begin with an end in mind.”
This is what I learned from our Business Management professor during my university days, and as taken from the book of Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.  I am a huge fan of personal finance, budgeting and investing – and this has grown even more as I started to be among the overseas Filipino workers (OFW) here abroad.  I thought that investing is merely just putting your money in investment vehicles, such as stock market, mutual funds, businesses, or real estates; and that’s it, it means that you’re already investing.
But nah…. Investing is way more than that. 
Investing is a “PLAN”, not a procedure or a product. – from Robert Kiyosaki
A few days ago, I travelled to Paris and oh boy..! The outcome of all the wonderful pictures were not possible if it had not been for the planning we made by my travelling buddies.  From booking our tickets, getting the approval of our managers to approve our vacation leaves, applying for visa, checking for hotels, itineraries and places to see, etc… It involves proper and appropriate planning to get us from Point A to Point B. 
Catedrale of Notre Dame
Think about it.
Why do you invest?  Where do you want your investments to take you to years from now?  What is your purpose for investing?  What are your investing plans?  Have you considered all possible investment options and opportunities offered to you – risks, returns, payback period?  Begin answering these questions first, and when you have all the crystal-clear answers, then start putting those eggs in your chosen investment baskets. *winks*

Keep learning and keep moving forward!

I Kissed Credit Cards Goodbye!

Back over two years ago, I attended a seminar provided by a speaker who is a managing director of one of the leading banks in the Philippines.  I could no longer vividly remember what his topic was all about, but I do remember that he mentioned about the next “booming” industry for Philippine banks:  which is consumer loans.  House amortization and car mortgages would go less as compared to previous years, BUT there will be an increasing demand for customer loans.  How?  Through the issuance of credit cards!
