My Financial Literacy Journey


Wow! This is my second post about finances. My first was about the 10-20-70 principle. Never have I imagined I would even have the courage to write about money or finances on my blog. But guess what, here I am now, documenting my journey to learning about finances.

Just imagine a little child not knowing how to read and write. That was me months ago when it comes to financial education. Then all of a sudden, I felt the need to learn about it already. So I started checking online, just like what most of us would do. I'm glad God directed me to the right channels where I was able to slowly learn about finance.

Of course, not that I'm an expert now, I know I still have a lot to learn. However, me, vs my old self who didn't even know what the word INFLATION RATE means, I can say that I have slowly improved.

The 3-year Old's Question That Left me Speechless for a Little While


Nate is known for being talkative. And when I say talkative, I mean overly talkative. I can imagine his name on the list of the noisy folks in class already. lol. As long as he is with the people he knows, he will keep on talking and asking questions.

Last week, we were helping a neighbor nebulize her son because he was having an asthma attack so we let them use our nebulizer. The boy, experiencing it for the first time, was wailing on the top of his lungs. Out of annoyance, Nate went near him, and with an emphasized voice, he told the boy:

How I Earned Php 750 from my Grocery Receipts

 

This post is long overdue and the reason for that is I want to make sure it's legit before I start recommending it to others. Now that I got my first cashout deposited to my account, I can now safely post about...

Snapcart is a mobile app both available for Android and Apple users. It provides shoppers cashback just by snapping receipts.

The Sickness Chain


Just last week, I wrote about Dane's sickness and how difficult it was for LDR couples when one gets sick. Guess what, life seems to like playing with us because now, I am the one who's sick. If there's anything good about all this, it's that none of us was admitted in the hospital and that Nate isn't ill. We know this, moms and dads, we'd rather be sick that see our child suffer.

Last Monday, I knew something wasn't right about my body when I had more than enough hours of rest but I still felt weak. It was an unproductive day. I just stayed in bed and I even asked Nate to massage my back. My tummy felt bloated as well. I didn't like the feeling, especially since the week just started.

REAL TALK: Bakit 'di Ka Pinapautang ng Kakilala Mo?


Sa panahon natin ngayon, hindi maiiwasang magipit financially, lalong lalo na kung nagkaroon tayo ng emergencies. Sa panahon ng kagipitan, karamihan sa'tin humihingi ng tulong sa mga kamag-anak o kaibigan. Kaya lang, hindi rin guarantee na makakahiram tayo. Yung iba nagtatampo bakit ayaw pahiramin, which is hindi naman tama. 

Bakit nga ba 'di tayo pinapautang ng kakilala natin minsan?

Sickness and Long Distance Relationship


Last week, Dane told me he was not feeling well. He said his throat hurts badly. I told him to gargle warm water with salt and asked him to try to buy Bactidol if possible. He still had to go to work, of course! While at work, he said he had a fever and was feeling weak. As his wife who's almost 5, 000 miles away from him, I couldn't do anything aside from trusting that God will heal him.

I had a feeling it was flu again. For almost two years of working abroad, by God's grace, he's not very sickly there. However, when he does, I can't help but worry about him. This time, I even told Nate so many times to pray for his papa.

BUDGETING 101: The 10-20-70 Principle


Disclaimer: I am not a financial expert. We are not financially stable. We are on our journey to financial literacy. So I just thought it'd be best to share what I learned along the way. Dito kasi sa Pilipinas, parang medyo taboo pa for majority of people ang money talks, right? It's like those who can talk about it are only those who are rich? I don't know, maybe it's just me, or what, but others may say, "wow, galing na about sa money oh, mayaman na siguro to" you know what I mean? Pero if rich people talk about money openly, dapat siguro tayo ding mga mahihirap, ano, para matuto tayo. :)

Ok, moving on...lol! A few weeks ago, I started watching videos about finance and investing. The many blog posts I read about investments, insurances, and finances have challenged me to start learning about them. I am 28 years old now, I should have learned earlier but back then, I settled on the fact that we are poor and can never really invest. I was wrong.

On one of the videos of Bo Sanchez, he talked about the 10-20-70 principle of budgeting. I'm glad I am on the right track because I have been doing it already, I just didn't know there's a term for that. lol! But in all honestly, we were not diligent in doing it.

So what's this 10-20-70 rule? According to him, in every income that you get:

6 Ways to Boost Self-esteem


We all want a high self-worth. I mean, who doesn't right? High self-esteem is being able to appreciate ourselves for who we are. With high self-esteem comes a simpler, happier and fulfilled life. We all want that, don't we?

Are you feeling a bit down lately? Don't worry, my friend, you're not alone! But hey, let's not let that feeling dominate our being, alright? Try these to help boost your self-esteem.

1. Trust yourself
If you don't trust yourself, who would? Low self-esteem happens when we question our capacity. Teach yourself to never doubt your potential. Yes, you have potential! Believe that! All you have to do is figure out what it is and start improving that skill.

Sunday School: The Waiting Game


I may not have mentioned this before, but I am a Sunday School teacher for the youth department in our church. I teach them about the basic Bible truths - what we believe and why we believe it. Our youth department is a group of teens and young adults aged fourteen to twenty-six years old if I'm not mistaken.

Since my (let's just say) students are youth, I try to be as perky as I can be while teaching. Yes, to the point that I become too corny already, lol! That is because I believe that you can mix fun and learning.

Thursday Thoughts: What Kept us Busy Recently?

I just realized that my last blog post was seven days ago already. I've not written anything for this week yet. Where was I? I guess I took another short hiatus, lol! Kidding aside, the main reason why I couldn't write often now was that our youngest sister is not here anymore, she's back to schooling after taking a pause for one school year.

Now, I can only write when someone is taking care of Nate or when he's sleeping. And that's fine, I mean, I don't see any problems with the new set up. After all, this blog is about our lives and our parenting journey. There's no pressure at all. :) But of course, I still try to blog as often as I can because this is what I love to do.

For this week though, here are the things that kept us busy at home.

I spent the entire day off last Monday with Nate. We slept, read and played. Monday is supposedly the day for me to catch up on my blogging but I didn't do it this time. Our room was a mess and I didn't care, I just wanted to rest and have more time with Nate.

In our messy bed, my grumpy #wokeuplikethis face, and no, that's not eyeshadow, that's black eye! I don't know how I got that, maybe Nate threw something that hit my eye, lol!

WAHM Tips: The Importance of Having a Back Up When Working at Home


Real talk: not all who work from home have a control over their time. I am among those who work at home with on a scheduled working hour. I have to be online Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM to 5 PM US Eastern time (that's 9 PM to 5 am PH time during daylight savings and 10 PM to 6 AM during standard time).

Here's what happened yesterday: it rained hard around 4:30 to 5:30 PM, just a few minutes after we went home from the grocery store. Yay, bed weather is coming! We were all happy for the rain since it was too hot yesterday. Everything was great until we had a brownout. Apparently, it's a transformer issue that's causing the power outage. Our neighbors called the people in charge to have it fixed but they were told the outage could take 4-6 hours.

I woke up at 8:30 PM, 30 minutes before my log-in time and there was still no electricity. So, with a candle in hand, I went to my work table and prepared to go to work. I had a backup ready so I was still able to work despite the power outage. How did I do it? These are the things that saved my day at work:

The BPI Express Credit (eCredit)


Those who read my blog from time to time know that I am new to the credit card world. I just had one via BPI secured credit card. So far, I only use it for grocery, Globe bill and emergency purchases just like my recent Plantronics headset order.

I know the credit limit is just too low (yes, it's just 9k, lol), I make sure to remind myself not to use it for things I don't need. So far, I don't have any problems when it comes to self-control VS my secured credit card. lol.

The Waiting


Sharing the song that has been my constant reminder every time I miss my husband. God willing, in five month's time, Dane will finally be home from Riyadh, KSA. Who would've thought it's almost two years already since we said our goodbyes at the airport? Many say that it was too fast.

Nothing is Secured, Nowhere is Safe


Almost all BPI clients who were affected, including me, was in a panic yesterday when news about BPI unauthorized charges spread like wildfire online. I saw many people complaining and bashing BPI's Facebook page about the matter.

I admit that I worried because that money was something Dane and I worked hard for. Some we got because we chose to save rather than buy something we want to buy. But when a friend who was with BPI for more than a decade assured me that it would be OK, and when I saw how that I am not the only one, I stopped worrying and just believed that BPI would be true to its words.

BPI: Hack? Glitch or Phishing?

Image Source: BPI Facebook page
I am supposed to write something about my reflection today but something came up. While I was waiting for Dane to go online, I saw a thread on a Facebook page from a mommy group about BPI making unauthorized transactions on their accounts.

I immediately checked my online banking and alas! I am one of them! A small amount in total (from two different transactions) was made on my account yesterday. Here's the thing: I was at home all day yesterday and never even touched my BPI card.

WAHM Review: Plantronics Audio 628 USB Stereo Headset


Before I got married and had Nate, I was already working from home. I am a customer service representative. It's very similar to call centers except I work from home, we use Skype to take calls and I don't have any benefits. It's literally a 'no work, no pay' basis.

Home based CSRs like me agree that aside from a stable internet connection and a quiet working environment, we need a quality headset. The problem is these headsets are worth dollars! And some of them, even though they work great, are not so durable and easily gets destroyed, so goodbye $$$ agad!

Mama & Nate's Weekend Playdate


My cousin, who stayed at home for a few weeks for her interview with the US embassy gave Nate 13 game arcade tokens. Since the day Nate got it, he kept telling me to go to SM so he could use them. I told him we'd have to wait 'til the weekend to go there. He agreed, but the next day, he would tell me the same thing again! lol. So, finally, we went to SM San Mateo last Saturday so he could play and then we'd buy grocery after.

The Story About a Broken Friendship


Which is more painful? A friend you had a serious fight with before you decided you'd just separate ways or a friend you thought was your true friend but suddenly disconnects with you without saying a word?

I think any "friendship break-up" (as I call it) is painful. I just had one recently and I'm still trying to move on from the pain.

This is our story...

Nate's Heartbreaking Hospital Experience



As I was browsing my Instagram wall last night, I realized I haven't blogged about Nate's hospital experience yet (well, I did, on a previous post but it was not detailed). So I'd like to talk about that today. This happened about a month before Nate turned three years old.

Nate does not get easily sick. However, when it comes to colds and coughs, we've noticed that he gets those easily. And these two are always partners. If Nate has a cough, a few days after, colds will follow, and vice versa.

Nate's 3rd Birthday Celebration x VBS 2017 Thanksgiving


Nate turned three more than a week ago, yay! Because it falls on a Friday, I thought it'd be great to celebrate the day after instead. When I asked Nate what he wanted for his birthday, he said he wanted to go to the beach. Nate loves going to the beach and pool, just like most kids (but he does not like taking a bath, lol!).

To All Mothers Around the World...


You who had mixed emotions the moment you see those two lines on the pregnancy test you bought at a local drugstore; 
You who suffered nausea, headache, dizziness, and morning sickness;
You who happily watch your tummy grow little by little each day;
You who was completely shocked the moment you felt your child's first kick;
You who endured hours of labor pain that felt like it was killing you;
You who could not stop those tears from rolling down your cheeks the moment you first saw your little one - 
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

WAHM Diaries: Nate Talks


Breaking the negativity from my previous post, I'd like to talk about our my funny convos with Nate recently. Don't we just love the kids' little minds? They amaze us in ways we don't expect. It's wonderful!

One afternoon: 
Nate: "Ma, 'di na ako baby e, youth na ako. Just like ate Juday"
Me: *Jaw dropped*
(Juday is one of his "ates" in the church)

Did Smart Pay Me to Bash Globe?


Two days ago, I wrote a post I thought was a heartwarming message for my son to read when he grows up. Little did I know, that post would lead to a controversy and would make others think that I am being paid to say negative things about a telecom - Globe to be exact.

In my post with a title mama's love letter, I talked about Nate and how happy and proud we are to be his parents. However, before that part, in a three-sentence paragraph, I mentioned that Globe was down in the area and that I had to use Smart so I could go online for my committed time at work. Additionally, I added a hyperlink on the anchor text 'Smart LTE' to direct it to the said telco's website.

Mama's Love Letter


Last night's a stressful day at work, I didn't have a stable internet connection since yesterday and the internet promo that I registered said that my data usage was too high so they would slow it down because of fair usage policy. This happened at exactly 9 pm (start of my shift). I had no choice, Globe LTE was down in the area so I had to buy a new Smart LTE sim so I could work. (READ: Did Smart Pay Me to Bash Globe?)

I told you I needed to go out and buy a new sim card and you asked to go with me. I told you I couldn't take you with me 'coz I was in a hurry and I needed to be back asap, and besides, it's night time already. You bargained and said if you wear a jacket and a hat, I could take you. I said I still couldn't but promised you I would be back as soon as possible. You ok'd and I left. Oh, Nate! You always choose to understand!

5 Reasons Why I Applied for a Secured Credit Card


I am one of those who does not like to use credit cards. Well, that was before. I think I was just too afraid to own one because I do not want to be like the many credit card users who ended up in so much debt, most of them were unable to recover from it. It is also because I cannot provide the requirements to getting one.

BPI Secured Credit Card


Today, I got my very first BPI credit card. It's a credit card like no other, lol! It's a secured credit card. :) It is for those who can't provide the requirements for a regular credit card.

Although the process felt like forever to complete, I'm happy it's finally over. For one straight week, I kept going back and forth to BPI San Mateo and they could not accommodate my request because every time I go, the system is down, haha! Lucky me!

DVBS 2017 Experience in One Word

VBS team singing a song during our VBS graduation
Our Vacation Bible School 2017 was a success! Our five-day VBS ministry was concluded last Saturday, April 29th and it we are thankful for God's provision throughout the 5-day activity.

During our last evaluation after the graduation day, we had everyone describe their VBS experience in one word. I was the first to share and with humor, I said that my one word would be "headache". I had a headache for three straight days during the VBS so on Thursday and Friday, I decided to skip and rest.

Sundayvotion: Building Each Other Up


It's been a while since I last posted a Sundayvotion. I have no excuse for doing that. Today, I would like to talk briefly about building each other up.

Because of Brownout


Yesterday, something unexpected happened - it rained hard even though it's summer time. Although I thought of it as a blessing because it is super hot nowadays, this has caused brownout in our area for more than four hours. Because of that, I was able to do things that I don't usually do anymore.

Sister's Farewell Letter

My parents missed her so much - that I can say. She has been the one to help me with Nate when she was here. Before she left, she made sure to leave me a letter. This was what it said:

WAHM Diaries: Nate and His Fever


It has been a habit for me to wake up early during Sundays. I used to be so tardy during this day that we were always late in our Sunday School back then. Thank God for His help, we have not been tardy in the church for months now.

As I write this, my little Nate is sleeping soundly in the other room. Praise God for helping my boy recover from illness. Two days ago, he was down with a fever that I had to take care of him, even at work. He was sleeping on my lap for two nights while I work. I don't know how I made that possible, but I did. It was not easy but we made it through.

Renewing my Unionbank EON card

Ever since I started working home-based, Unionbank EON has been my partner. That's five years and counting already. Yesterday, I went to renew my card as it was expiring on 4/2017. I wanted to *hopefully* be able to get a replacement before the new payout comes so I won't experience any delays with my pay.

Sadly, my experience yesterday did not turn out well. When it was my turn, I was informed by the teller that my card will not expire until April 2017, I would have to pay Php 150 to have it renewed, or I could come back on April 30th to renew my card.

This branch is located in St. Peter in Commonwealth Avenue. This is the branch that I use to go and this is the nearest that I know from our place - we are in San Mateo, Rizal, so it's a bit far from us already. Haha. Since I was already there, I agreed to pay the Php 150 pesos in hopes that I could get my new card right away as that was what happened when I got my first replacement in 2014.

Signs of Anemia and Sangobion's #SulongDugongPinoy Campaign

Photo Grabbed from Sangobion Philippines FB Page
Anemia is something that we all don't want to have. However, due to some of the things that we do, we became at risk for having one. Take me, for example, I have been working at night since 2009 - we all know how important sleep is. Now, because I have to do my job, I have no choice but to stay awake all night. Unless of course I quit and look for a daytime job (which is another story).

The Fear of Germs and My Encounter with PowerClean Chemicals


One of moms' greatest fears seeing her family sick. That is why it's understandable for other moms to be OC when it comes to household cleanliness.

Today, I learned about Mysophobia which is the fear of contamination and germs. And for someone who grew up in a small town who was too exposed to dirt and germs, I can 100% say that I don't have this kind of fear.

One of our churches in Things to Come Mission Incorporated recently celebrated its 17th founding anniversary last Sunday, March 12, 2017, and I am happy to be a part of this wonderful celebration.

God blessed Dasmariñas Grace Gospel Church of Christ for 17 years already. Although it was unplanned, I, together with the other officers of the Grace Women's Warriors decided to do our monthly visitation in this church at the same day. So Sunday at 5:20 AM, Nate and I left to be in Dasmariñas, Cavite.

However, keep in mind this is just a basic guide.  The weather, occasion, theme, and age of the party guests could affect the final selection.

4 Funny Things People from Big Family Can Relate


Last week, one of my blogger friends (insert one of my fave bloggers too), Momi Berlin talked about the advantages and disadvantages of having a big family via psst.ph. I was smiling while reading the articles because as someone who is from a big family, I can totally relate to everything she said!

With that, I thought I should write about my experience as a member of a big family too. We are a family of six and I was the eldest of four kids. You can just imagine how challenging it is for me try to be a "good example" to my siblings. Although, I'm not talking about that now 'coz that's a different story. :)

Our Adobo Connection Experience


A few weeks ago, we were able to go out of our cave and visit SM San Mateo again. We played in the game arcade and planned to sing karaoke. However, since there were still a lot of customers waiting in line for the karaoke, we decided to have dinner first. One of the nearest restos was Adobo connection. We decided to dine here to give it a try. Let me share our experience here.

Rico Case (Rico What??)






Here’s a short info: this photo above is called a rico case (reminds me of Rico Yan, actually). I had no idea what this is until today and this is what I learned: It is a multi-instrument reed storage Case with humidity control pack for all clarinets and saxophones. Must be why I didn’t know about it ‘coz it’s for sax and clarinets and I don’t play those instruments.

Yup, now I know! And if you haven’t yet, now you know too! :)


Will I ever need to buy one of these in the future? I don’t think so.

Drum Set for Toddlers + Nate's Cute (and Funny) Review


An FB friend's post of her son playing a newly purchased drumset reminded me that I have been planning to buy Nate one and just keep forgetting about it. Poor me!

Since Nate is in love with the drum set in the church, I decided to buy him a drum set already (it's been long overdue anyway). There's a lot of cute drum set available in Lazada to choose from. However, since I wanted to buy a cheaper set, I purchased the one with no bass drum - just five drums, and one cymbal for PHP 699.
