BRIA Homes in Laguna

BRIA Homes in Laguna

Laguna, one of the most progressive provinces south of the metro, has long been considered a prime residential location, thanks to its proximity to Metro-Manila. The growing business and employment opportunities in Laguna have also spurred the locals—and townsfolk from neighboring municipalities—to seek work in the province. And because of Laguna’s rich history and cultural heritage, it has likewise become a popular tourists’ attraction.

Travel Essential RFID-Blocking Backpack: Beside U Bag

Travel Essential RFID-Blocking Backpack: Beside U Bag

My friend would always ask me why do I always bring a big bag? I always wonder about that too when in fact I only (try to) bring the essentials. 

I do not want to do a Mary Poppins, but everytime I go out, I only bring the essentials - small wallet with cards and money, keys, feminine wipes, powder, lipstick, hand sanitizer/alcohol - But then everything turns into an essential like my new tumbler, then maybe my (small umbrella), and of course - my camera.

Millennial Money Lessons + Invest in Stocks Anywhere through 2TradeAsia App

I am one of those kids who was once irresponsible about handling and managing money. 

I remember back in College when I got an extension for a credit card and I swiped away to shopping and clubbing. I was at that stage when I felt that "my parents didn't understand me" and I told myself that once I got a job, I would buy everything I wanted. 

Until, I got my first job and earned a minimum pay, but even if I got promoted and received increase in salary, my mom would still give me additional allowance for my transportation and other expenses.  Real world is real, and cruel. ✌️
