Mimosa Pudica

This plant is known for its shrinking reaction to contact.

The compound leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, defending themselves from harm, and re-open a few minutes later.

The species is known by numerous common names including sensitive plant, humble plant, shameplant, and touch-me-not.

In our language, it is commonly known as "makahiya".

Hatputito Freed....or not?

After almost 3 months of being in community quarantine, I finally got out of the house on the 11th of June for my scheduled flu vaccine shot.

The clinic is within our village but the surrounding felt different as if I didn't come here for ages.

I went out with my aunt but with some rules still being implemented, we had to ride a separate tricycle (only 1 person is allowed).

I also had to go offline from my work because we were scheduled around 4:00 PM.

My first selfie from the outside world after the lockdown, I even forgot to remove my work glasses.

Philam | Vitality Points Missing

In my 4th week of using the Vitality app, I encountered some problems.


Just when the week is about to end on June 21, I chased the last hour to reach the target points.

My Samsung Health app was able to count 30 mins of exercise but the Vitality app did not sync it, only the number of steps was synced which is far from the target points.

Lazada | I Spent 3K on 6.6 Bounce Back Sale 😱


I can't count how many times in a year Lazada has put on a Big Sale, I just know that every quarter you should expect that there will be one.

Philam | Earn By Using Vitality


So after checking out Philam's insurance products, I finally created my very first insurance plan last 26 May 2020 and probably won't be the last.

I chose AIA Critical Protect (ACP) 100 which includes:

1. Life Insurance coverage until age 100 (so I am covered until age 100. If something happens to me, the beneficiaries will receive the Face amount, or in case I live up to age 100, I will receive the maturity benefit of my insurance plan) This is guaranteed!

GCash | What Happens After Collecting Enough Green Energy in GForest?

Last year, I created a post about GCash Forest which you can read here.

From thereon, I have been using GCash for most of my transactions: paying bills, shopping online, buying load, bank transfers, and so on.

Upon doing so, I was able to collect more green energy.

Connecting health app is useless because I don't exercise much often and I think it does not work with GForest anymore as what the commenter in my previous post said.

So what happens after you have collected enough energy?

Insurance Is Just An Expense, Do You Agree? 🙊


For us ordinary people who just earn a decent income for our daily needs, we see insurance as an expense.

"Dagdag sa gastusin."

"Di ko naman gagamitin 'yan."

"Malusog naman ako."

"Wala na akong pera para diyan."

"May iba akong gustong pag-ukulan ng pera ko."

"May binabayaran pa akong credit card (could be dahil bumili ka ng sapatos, damit, cellphone, bag, etc.)"
