PAPA PIOLO PASCUAL'S MONEY TIPS

Posted On Saturday, February 01, 2020 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments


"Lack of money, being broke, and constant worry over how to pay the bills does indeed put significant stress on both relationships and happiness. Lack of money can easily end both".

Overseas Filipinos can learn a thing or two or even more from our kabayan Papa P or Piolo Pascual. Everyone knows that he is very smart when it comes to money matters.

BDO Remit brand ambassador Piolo Pascual is very proud of his life as an Overseas Filipino (OF). While it was very challenging, he said his life abroad was full of valuable lessons, which helped him achieve financial freedom.

People may not know that Piolo temporarily left showbiz at age 19 to join his mom and other siblings in California, USA. There, he juggled two jobs, working as a hospital staff during the day and as a security guard in downtown Los Angeles at night. He was working almost 16 hours a day, only to make ends meet.

“It was hard at first because I was blocked out of the life that I had here. I was already an actor back then living a different lifestyle. When I migrated to the US, I had to start from scratch. I had to work right away or else I wouldn’t have any food on the table,” he said of his early struggles.

“My sister and I were just renting a place. My mom, who lives in the same community, would drop by once in a while to give us food. But even so, we still had to fend for ourselves. I had two jobs because my salary was not enough to pay for my insurance, my car, my rental, my food, and allowance,” Piolo added. 
Two years after moving to the states, he decided to go back home. He wanted to give acting another try. While his years as an OF didn’t last long, he credits much of his success to the valuable lessons he learned while living and working abroad. 

“I wouldn’t be what I am today if it weren’t for the hardships I went thru as an OF. I learned to work very hard to be able to pay for things but at the same time, I learned not to spend beyond my means. It really takes discipline to be practical and not buy things that you really do not need,” he said. 

Piolo did not only work hard to earn his keep, he worked doubly hard to protect it. He shared he remains a very practical person, who would rather spend on things that would bring in returns, than on material possessions.

More importantly, he learned that part of protecting your hard-earned money is choosing the right remittance partner, one that not only promises convenience but security as well. 

“My mom was already in the US when we were growing up. At that time, it was so hard for us to get money from her for our schooling. We would then go to an agency, which would charge us with all sorts of fees. BDO really changed the landscape of remittance. They made it easy for Filipinos overseas to send money to their loved ones,” he said. 

As a former OF, Piolo said he knows how much our kababayans abroad sacrifice just to be able to provide for their families back home and so he cautions OFs against sending money to just any remittance agency especially those they just happen to see online.  

“You are entrusting your hard-earned money to others. Always go for someone who is trustworthy, who has a track record, and who has been there for a long time. The last thing that you want to happen is for your money not to reach your loved ones. That’s why I always choose BDO. With BDO, you are confident that your money will be safely remitted to your loved ones back home,” he said.

HOLIDAY INN MANILA GALLERIA FAMILY STAYCATION
We were able to book a staycation at Holiday Inn Manila Galleria for only Php2,450/ night. Imagine that!

If you're stressed out nowadays, you could relax via a staycation in one of the metro's shoestring budget hotels in the city or better yet stay in one of the coolest hotels around like the Holiday Inn Manila Galleria.

Holiday Inn Manila Galleria is conveniently interconnected with Robinson's Galleria at the third and fourth level so shopping plus your movie thirst can now be satisfied safely without the need for you to brave the horrendous traffic.

True to its brand name. Holiday Inn Manila Galleria suite has very friendly and helpful staff. My aunt used to bring me with her family in Hong Kong when I was so much younger. And that was my first encounter with the Holiday Inn brand. It is located near Nathan station in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

ZION TRADING : E-commerce Nuggets of Gold

Posted On Saturday, January 25, 2020 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

E-commerce has evolved into one of the biggest and most coveted industries ever known. The art of procuring things – that comes from an unknown source that was never accounted for – is now over and it has changed into the art of buying from home, using your very own smartphone to purchase goods worth millions.
Zion, Zion Trading, Rise of Zion, E Commerce

If you want to earn money and save for your future. Then you must do an online business. 

E-Commerce is the "in thing" nowadays. Almost every establishments in the Philippines has their own e-commerce website. It is primarily because almost everyone are into gadgets and has access to internet since the government approved the free public wifi in every municipality. Yes, even those far-flung baranggays are now online. Less carbon footprint ❤️. Iwas traffic pa! 

Doing traditional business has many disadvantages thats why businesses are going online to thrive.  Online business is really something you should consider. The vast world of e-commerce has a lot of potential in the field of food, clothing, services, anything you can sell legally. 

People who are successful in business especially in e-commerce need a certain kind of drive. But for people who have been selling online for years and are jaded or for people who are just starting out, the key word is claiming or reclaiming your MOJO. For those of you who do not know what mojo is, according to the Urban Dictionary, it means "personal confidence and charisma". Mojo also means magic or charm and that is what success in eCommerce takes, but in order to exude confidence and charisma and give your products a magical allure and charm, you need motivation! That is why each and everyone of us should meet the team behind Zion Trading! Why? Because they're very passionate about empowering people.


Ms. Fostine Margaux Tapiador, founder of the new Christian-owned E-commerce company, Zion Trading, saw an opportunity to spread the good news and share the blessing and wonders of Electronic Commerce or Online business to people. It is a multi-Billion dollar earning opportunity business that paved the way from its pioneers such as EBAY, AMAZON.COM of the American spheres, ALIBABA of China and also some famous online e-commerce sites here in the Philippines such as Shopee, Lazada, Zalora and many more.

About ZION TRADING & E-COMMERCE BUSINESS SOLUTION 


Zion is derived from the scriptures which represents the City of Jerusalem among the Jews with a promise of restoration from loss and devastation of their lives and country. It also connotes the mountain of God among the Judeo-Christian Faith of a better state enjoying God’s abundance, protection and assurance of salvation. This was the inspiration of the founder and young CEO-President Ms. Fostine Margaux Tapiador fondly known as Charmie to her closest to start her own company.

Registered officially as a Corporation last September 2019, ZION TRADING & E-COMMERCE BUSINESS SOLUTIONS was created from the success of its founder Charmi, who also wanted to share the breakthrough business by mentoring-coaching and training who would sign up and subscribe to the platform.

Richard Gabriel Bonifacio, the COO-GM of Zion, said that E Commerce is the “Great Equalizer” to do business nowadays. After discovering and trying the revolutionary business where he earned six-figure income, he quit his job, continued to do E-Commerce at his pace and convenience which gave him the liberty to spend more quality time with his family.

Last but definitely not the least, known in the circle of MLM-Network Marketing Industry and being a consistent leader-achiever, “Jojo” Toress, the Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of. Zion has a change of heart. From a “green card holder”, he almost settled in the US. But after being persuaded by Charmi to join her in setting up Zion, he decided to stay for good and they joined forcer in empowering many people through this revolutionary business. Jojo resolved to himself that this is the right business and company for him and surrendering his green card are all worth the risk, as he sees bigger vision with Zion.



ZION TRADING & E-COMMERCE BUSINESS SOLUTIONS’ grand launch is set on January 25, 2020.

Visit Seoul, Busan and more visa-free Soon!

Posted On Tuesday, December 24, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

Yes! Finally! You and I can soon visit South Korea VISA-FREE 

Oh, please please tell me this is not a dream! The K-pop fan in me would like to scream I can't help but get excited, K-Wave fans! This is the news we’ve all been waiting for. This 2020, Philippine passport holders will be given VISA-FREE access to cities like Seoul, Busan, and Nami Island – making you one step closer to checking South Korea off your bucket list! However, there’s a catch – so keep on reading!

Last December 12, the Ministry of Strategy and Finance and the Ministry of Justice announced that as part of South Korea’s “Plan for Promoting Foreign Tours,” Philippine passport holders will be permitted to enter major South Korea cities without holding a visa!

However, it is important to note the limitations of this program. Tourists are only permitted visa-free entry in inland areas – Seoul, Incheon, and Busan – for up to five days; and that their final destination be Jeju Island.

This new Visa-Free program also extends to Vietnam and Indonesian passport holders.

For more information, you may check out the official Visa-Free Program announcement of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea here.

Visit South Korea visa-free through Jeju Island!

In the event that you can no longer wait until this visa-free program becomes official, you can still enter South Korea visa-free by visiting Jeju Island! Though you cannot travel to any other cities outside of Jeju Island, we can guarantee you an exciting adventure through this coastal wonder!

DUTERTE: Must Certify Urgent Law Vs. VAPE/ Vaping

Posted On Friday, November 22, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

Our beloved president Rodrigo Duterte with his power as president of the Republic of the Philippines must use the principle of Parens patriae and certify urgent the law vs. Vaping and vape/e-juice.



With all due respect to you Tatay Digong. 🙏 You're very intelligent and you're my lodi and hope of the Filipino people.  You can order the law making body of the Philippines - - which is our congress to immediately pass a law vs. Vape/ Vaping/ E-Juice because of its harmful effects to the health of anyone who uses and smells it. 

By certifying its urgency the law vs. Vape and vaping will have its first and last reading. Thus, shortening the time for the law to be passed. Avoiding the long and tedious process of the second and third reading. To our congressmen: Please don't prolong the process. Save the Filipino children ASAP. Salamat po. 🙏 


In the US, vape /E-Juice was found to be extremely hazardous. Now, imagine what they found in their study, a teenager with a lungs of a 70-year old after only six months of vaping.  E-Juice is much worst according to a doctor of medicine. Grade school pupils and high school students who thought that E-Juice is better will have the biggest disappointment of their lives. Because the doctors found out that one E-Juice is equivalent to ten packs of cigarettes. 

To those who disagree with the President's speech against vape/vaping: As a parent would you wait for the worst to happen to the Filipino children before you take actions? For what? For money? How about the grade schoolers who think that e-juice is cool? Please think about your own kid/kids. 

I am sad when people make fun of the president. I don't condone to some of his actions and speeches but he is our PRESIDENT. The father of this country and he loves the Philippines and the Filipino people. Like most Filipinos, I am for President Duterte and Vice President Leni Gerona Robredo. That is the will of the majority of Filipinos. Obvious naman sa result ng nakaraan election. Mas okay nga na hindi sila magka partido para may check in balance sa ginagawa ng bawat isa. I wonder why is there so much hate? The President should protect the children and the Filipino people.  Mr. President please use the principle behind parens patriae to certify urgent the law vs. Vaping/e-Juice. 

Parens patriae is a Latin for 'parent of his or her country.' In the juvenile justice legal system, parens patriae is a doctrine that allows the state to step in and serve as a guardian for children, the mentally ill, the incompetent, the elderly, or disabled persons who are unable to care for themselves. 

Since the President is a lawyer I know that he is aware of this principle. Give him a break.

HEARTY BREAD: Healthy lifestyle Made Affordable

Posted On Sunday, November 10, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

HEARTY BREAD: Healthy Lifestyle At A Low Price

Anyone who had tried dieting before would agree with me that it is not as easy as it may sounds. Plus, a healthy diet requires not only a solid determination but a lot of moolah too! Why? Because it is very expensive! There are so many diet options in the market today but they come with a hefty price tag! You may classify me into someone who had been dieting all my life. Eversince I can remember I am constantly on a diet. Then, one day I give up and let my unhealthy lifestyle overcome my will to be healthy. 



I've tried so many diet options before , but I ended up as a total failure. I know, I am a ticking time bomb. I am aware that I should shape up sooner and not later or I'll end up six feet under the ground. Hard as it may seems, it is for my best interest.  

Come on, admit it. Following a strict diet are generally not effective. Plus it is unhealthy like Keto diet. Some healthy stuff doesn't taste good. Some do taste good but they're very unhealthy. And some diet stuff makes me crave for more food. Being deprived makes me want more. 

A healthy lifestyle will not only extend your life span, but also makes you feel and look good. Plus you don't have to buy plus sizes clothes anymore. Being healthy will also makes you more confident.  Obese individuals has greater chances of suffering from diabetes, cancer, renal failures and other diseases imaginable. 

Problem is, my main problem is not only psychological but also budget. Not to mention that going into a strict diet—Low Carbohydrate/Sugar-Free diet makes me crave for more rice. You see. I am a typical Filipino who loves rice. And rice is carbohydrates. No rice diet makes me weak. 

Diabetic Cases

The Philippines is considered one of the diabetes "hot spots" in the Western Pacific region. It is estimated that 1 out of 5 Filipinos are diabetic. This statistic is very alarming and calls for attention of the general public. Several cause-oriented group has already started campaigns to spread awareness in the hope to help hinder the growth

It was noted that unhealthy lifestyle habits of Filipinos is the main cause of diabetes. This was also tackled by World Health Organization and they also included sedentary lifestyles as major lifestyle risk factors, stating that 1 in 3 overweight and 1 in 10 is obese.

Obesity

Obesity cases is another red flag in the country. Those who consume excess sugar and carbohydrate lead to accumulating that excess weight overtime. Per record, Philippines has estimated a staggering 18 million citizens who are either Obese or Overweight.

Cancer Cells feed on Sugar

To clarify, consuming sugar does not cause cancer. Studies have been conducted which proves that sugar essentially feeds tumors and encourages cancer growth. Hence starving these cells from sugar may help cancer patients.

These health conditions would require a special diet, and we know how expensive it can be. Because it can be really costly, a group of young entrepreneurs, Evan Dykimching and Vicson Ngo, have decided to develop bread alternatives, Hearty Bread, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free.


The company started out as suppliers for some of the major hospitals in the Metro. They cater to doctors and in-house patient with conditions mentioned above.

"When one of our family member got confined in the hospital, we were surprised that the price of our bread were quite high due to several administrative fees," Evan recounts.

With the company's desire to promote affordable and quality healthy, they created the brand "Hearty Bread" to make healthy breads readily available and affordable to the general public.

To give you an idea, if you are not familiar with the price of Gluten-Free/Sugar-Free in the market, other producers are selling these breads ranging from Php500 to Php600 per loaf. Expensive? You bet! 

Hearty Bread invested in research and development for two (2) years in order to come up with bread that are double in size and begun selling at half the price – all Gluten-Free/Sugar-Free.



A lot of other products are in the pipeline and are being developed which gives those who are into these type of diet something to look forward to.

Evan also shares the secret to making their bread available at a very low price – 

"We can really lower the cost of our products since we produce them commercially in volume quantities. We also own the lot where our facilities operate so we don't pay rent. We make our breads affordable not to kill the market price, but to make these healthy breads more affordable and help those who are burdened to begin with."


I received a basket of Hearty Bread the other week and O boy, they're all delicious. To think that all of these breads are gluten free!!! 



Our house boy asked me why am I eating steel wool. Lol. It is because he saw me eating Hearty Bread's Charcoal Almond Cheesy Loaf. He's so funny. l decided to let him taste it. Imagine my surprise when he wanted some more, lol! Nasarapan! Ha ha ha! It is totally behind me how on earth does a gluten-Free/Sugar-Free with no preservatives will taste this good!


I also love the fact that all of their breads are sliced to perfection. No more sweat in slicing. Hearty bread had thoroughly covered every rough edges! And that is so cool. 😎


My brother also love hearty breads saba 🍌 banana 🍞 loaf. He finished the banana loaf in one seating ha ha ha! 😅 

Charcoal Cheesy Almond Loaf
Moi favorite 😍

Posted On Saturday, November 09, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

One could feel Manila Hotel's Christmas vibe upon entering its grandiose doors. 



Everyone is free to come and visit Manila Hotel. But of course you have to go through security checks everytime you visit. 



You could have your photos taken at every nook and corners because Manila Hotel is very Instagrammable❤️




Since October we're here almost everyday because my brother goes to Manila Hotel's health club. 



We chance upon Manila Hotel's president, former Senator Joey Lina tonight together with Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. 



I wanted a selfie with the former president but I am too shy to ask her for a photo plus her bodyguard looks like a tiger, lol. Someday perhaps. Her son Datu Arroyo used to be the congressman in my Mom's hometown. Plus, she's the guest speaker during my college graduation. GMA is very industrious a very loving mom and wife, a very good teacher and economist. 



Big Santa Bear at Manila Hotel's lobby.

Ramon Magsaysay Center:Bloggers, Vloggers & Entrepreneurs Inspire Life

Posted On Wednesday, October 30, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

"Our primary purpose in life is to help and inspire others" 



Bloggers, Vloggers & Entrepreneurs Inspire Life in a small gathering held at Donburimix Ramon Magsaysay Basement, Ramon Magsaysay Center Roxas Boulevard corner Quintos Street Malate, Manila

Many of us don't have an inkling what is really our primary purpose in life up until this very moment. Lucky are those people like ate Juliet Zapanta Cruz and the entrepreneurs who presented their businesses at the Vloggers explore Manila event. Why?  Primarily because they are so passionate about helping others through their respective businesses. 

Others say that one should never do business with friends. Because the friends you treasure might turn into an enemy because of some business issues that might hurt the friendship along the way. 

Is it alright to do business with friends? Know the answer by watching the video below:


During the event these businessmen unselfishly shared their ups and downs. Including their own experiences when they were starting out both here in the Philippines and abroad. They tirelessly answered all the questions thrown their way. 

I also learned that it was also the very first time that the vloggers had the opportunity to meet each other personally. Happy to have met some of you guys and gals. I am too old and too shy to mingle and meet everyone but I treasure those who took the time to get to know me when I was sitting by my lonesome in the table near the food and drinks section ha ha ha! #AlamNaThis joke. I only ate California Maki (my favorite) and one milk tea 'coz I am on a diet. I learned a lot from you guys! Grabe! Saludo ako sa galing at pagtutulungan ninyo at sa pagbibigay ninyong vlogging tips sa akin. Sa uulitin. Thank you guys! I really appreciate your help and inputs sa tulad ko na walang alam at masasabing newbie sa editing at vlogging. 

MG Pineda of Bacolod is very nice and provided entertainment to the delight of everyone. She is a resident in Australia and a business owner/singer rolled into one. Thank you, Mg! We had so much fun listening to your wonderful voice.

Ate Juliet Zapanta Cruz wears so many hats. She is a very good emcee, wife, mother, entrepreneur, blogger now also a Vlogger and a talent manager. She never ceases to amaze me!  ❤️ Thank you so much for the opportunity to be inspired.

RUSSIA: Free E-Visa For Filipino Passport Holders

Posted On Tuesday, October 29, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

We, Filipinos can now visit Saint Petersburg and the Leningrad region with a free e-visa for a stay of up to eight (8) days.

Russia recently announced that it will offer the e-visa privilege for Filipinos to enter Saint Petersburg and the Leningrad region starting October 1, 2019.

The e-visa is free and is a single-entry visa, which will be valid for 30 days from the date it is issued. Filipinos with an e-visa are allowed to stay in the Russian Federation for up to 8 days, starting from the day of entry and within the visa's validity period.

The visa's validity and number of days allowed in the country cannot be extended, the Russian government said. The allowed period of 8 days, it added, will start at midnight of the day of entry through passport control and not the actual time of passage.

Reminder for travelers: Russia also reminded travelers that they should leave the country "only through checkpoints of the constituent entity of the Russian Federation which they entered."

Foreigners who enter Russia with e-visas are also required to have medical insurance valid in Russia for the entire period of their stay.

How to apply: 


Filipinos interested in applying for the e-visa must fill out an application on this website no later than 4 days before their expected arrival date.

E-visa issuance notifications will be posted here no later than 4 days after applications are submitted. Invitations, hotel confirmations, and other travel documents confirming the purpose of travel are not required for the application, according to the Russian government.

E-visas are only valid for the following travel purposes:



  • Ordinary business visa
  • Ordinary tourist visa
  • Ordinary humanitarian visa (purposes of journey are sports, cultural, scientific, and technological ties)
If the purpose of travel falls outside these categories, individuals are expected to apply for a traditional visa at a diplomatic mission or consular office of the Russian Federation.

Whenever I hear the word "Russia" I can't help but remember the 007 movie "From Russia with love" Well, all I can say now is that this free e-visa is a gift from Russia with Love.(no Pun intended)

Enjoy!

AYALA MALL MARIKINA : How to Commute

Posted On Saturday, July 27, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 3 comments

How to commute to Ayala Mall Marikina

Coming from the South or North of Manila the easiest way is either via MRT or LRT to Cubao. 

In front of Gateway Cubao there is a UV express terminal.  One is going to Parang and the other one is SSS Marikina. 

Select SSS Marikina. Fare is Php30 (Thirty Pesos) tell the driver that you'll get down in Meralco. 



When you alight, jump in on one of the yellow trikes in the area and tell the trike driver that you're going to #AyalaMallMarikina fare is Php20

Usually the trike are only up to the entrance of Mercury DrugStore. 

Happy commuting!

The Parisian Macao

Posted On Tuesday, June 04, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

The day that I watch "Lovers in Paris" is the day that I wish to go and visit the city of love, Paris also known as the City of Lights. Paris is at the heart of romance, and the Eiffel Tower is at the heart of Paris.

The Parisian Macao, views of the city and hotel await each visitor to the Observation Decks on levels 7 and 37.

My cousin and her family went recently to Macao and had a wonderful stay at Parisian Macao.  

I wish to visit Macao soon.  My brother and I spent one Christmas there a long time ago and had not come back since because of several reasons. But seeing my cousin's recent vacation in Macao had enticed me to visit Macao soon.


Welcome
