     Living in a fast-paced world, we want to do things in an instant. It saves time and energy for us, especially if we are always in the "so little time, so much to do" mantra. For a busy self-employed and small business owner like me, time is essential. I have a daily routine that is systematically based on time. I follow a strict schedule from day until night. I value time so much that's why I cannot afford to waste a single minute, especially on work or business-related matters.

     One of the things that I like about the word "instant" is how it helps things or services get done fast! These things or services make life convenient mostly for small business owners like me. I'm the one who is in charge of the back-office tasks. That's why buying stocks and sending money to suppliers is a must. I'm also the one who is assigned to pay monthly utility bills and I'm happy to say that M Lhuillier’s Kwarta Padala is one of my partners in facilitating business transactions. ML Kwarta Padala demonstrates M Lhuillier’s brand promise of efficiency and reliability. More details about ML Kwarta Padala after the jump!

     When I was in grade school, I always saw my mom wear gold accessories during special occasions. I am still not aware that gold jewelry and diamond pieces are not just accessories to complement an outfit, they are good investments. These timeless pieces especially with fine and rare gemstones, have a high resale value and usually do not lose value. That is why growing up, I saw how my mother valued her gold jewelry. If she has extra money to spend, she makes sure that it will be for a piece of gold jewelry that will go into her collection. One time I asked her what she would do with it 10 years from now and the only answer I got was that it would be handed down to us and kept for future use.

     If my memory serves me right, she is getting her source from a close family friend. During that time, only a few establishments offered high-quality genuine jewelry. That's why knowledge and trust are important before shelling out ten or thousands of pesos to buy gold and diamonds. It is important to know the type of jewelry, where it came from, and other details about the piece that you are going to buy just to make sure you are getting the real ones. Fast forward to today, now I understand why she keeps on saving her hard-earned money to buy gold and diamond pieces. Jewelries are timeless investments you can give to yourself or your loved one. Do you want to invest in gold and diamond jewelry? You are in luck because I discovered that M Lhuillier has a store for exquisite and fine jewelry. Click read more to find out.

The Iconic PLDT Ad ‘Suportahan Ta Ka’ Gets a Real-Life Sequel

Tuesday, December 05, 2023

     Love communicated is love received. In these times when young adults have so many choices in their careers, a parent’s support means the world to them as they begin to lead their own lives. Open and loving communication has always been the message of PLDT. Remember the iconic tagline “Suportahan Ta Ka” from the 2000s TV ad? It’s making a comeback on PLDT’s 95th anniversary campaign.

     From the Suportahan Ta Ka TV ad produced by Ace Saatchi & Saatchi, actor and model Christian Vasquez played a young medical student who asked for his dad’s permission if he could shift his degree to Fine Arts. As he confessed his plans, his doctor dad said, “Kung saan ka masaya ti, suportahan ta ka [Whatever makes you happy, I’ll support you!].” This one line immediately became a hit in the 2000s.

PLDT Home x mWell Health Pass

Friday, December 01, 2023

     If there’s one helpful lesson that the pandemic has helped reinforce on a bigger, more alarming scale, it’s that people should be more cautious of their health no matter the season. Even in the post-pandemic era, people should constantly get themselves checked and track their health in all aspects.

     A recent study by research institute Capstone-Intel Corp., however, found that only 40% of Filipinos go to the doctor to get checked regularly, and 33% only do so when they fall ill. This rate doesn’t bode well for many people’s health, especially with conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and the like common to Filipinos.
