Are you thinking of starting your own freelancing career but do not know where to start?

I have seen two common options people do during this pandemic when their livelihood was affected: 1) start an online business, 2) look for an online job.

Whichever you choose, competition is very high because the majority of people are turning into these options at this time.

If you happen to choose the second option and have already searched for tutorials and information on how you can get one, but still struggling your way to achieve it, maybe what you need is guidance.

Trust me, I have been there and done that.

Lazada | Great Finds Pt. 1

I have been shopping on Lazada since I don't know when.

There are good buys, and there are flops.

I have learned to read every reviews that I can rather than just looking at the ratings, because I feel like some are scripted especially with overseas sellers (you see those several reviews from different "buyers" kuno but same photos were used? Pati ba naman doon may kopyahan 😅)

So yeah, if you are careful and very meticulous when shopping, then you should double that when buying online.

So far, the following are my favorite finds from my online shopping:

Search by Image Using Google Lens

Have you ever experienced seeing something you want to know more about or want to know what it is called but you couldn't because you don't know what to even search?

Well here is a very simple way to find it out.

Lazada | Fun Farm: Collect Coins, Exchange for Items

We usually open online shopping apps, of course, to buy, or maybe for screen-shopping (instead of window-shopping), to look for great/rare finds, or maybe to past time.

But these activities will eventually lead us to spend.

What if I tell you there are other activities within the app that will help you lessen your spendings, or even give the item you want for free?

That is the benefit you will get with Lazada's Fun Farm.

Income Grew by 277% 😲

This is the surprise I got from an email notification from Google Adsense.

In my 6 years of on and off blogging, this is the greatest return from Adsense I received as yet from my writing.

But don't get mistaken!

GCash | Donate to #UlysessPHAid

How are you guys doing?

We are two months away from the end of this year, but 2020 is not yet done in leaving its mark to our lives.

Last Thursday relived the fear and memory of our experience from Typhoon Ondoy 11 years ago when #Ulysses hit the Philippines.

If you search news about Ulysses, you will see how massive the damage it dealt with Filipinos.

GCash | Pay Netflix Subscription

You can actually pay for your Netflix subscription using GCash.

It is very simple and straightforward, but you need to ensure two things: 

1) you have enough balance on your GCash account

2) you have a GCash card number (either physical or virtual)

If you don't have the latter, don't worry there's another workaround.

So let's dig into it.

Change in Blogging Schedule

As I was viewing my blog while thinking of what to post next, I realized that I have been very naughty in following my blogging schedule this year.

If I was able to post regularly, the Archive list should have at least 4 posts every month but as you can see below it only averaged at 1.5 a month and I even missed March (the start of lockdown)!

What difference does it make?

Lazada | Getting Items for FREE

So I have been into this coins collection from LazGame, which I thought was a nice past time.

I play Fun Farm: playing with the virtual cat, petting him, feeding him, making him cut some grass, as well as watering and harvesting strawberries which then converts into coins.

GCash | Insurance

Have you heard of GCash's newest offering, GCash Insure? 

With the crisis we are globally facing right now, it is important to have this valuable protection in the event of hospitalization, accident, and/or *knock on wood* death.

And with GCash, getting insured is just a text away.

As per GCash's article, GCash Insure aims to provide anyone with accessible insurance for as low as Php 39/month.

How will that be helpful to us?

GCash | Forest's New Trees

Did you know that GCash has added new trees in their GForest?

Before, we only have Yakal to plant.

But now, there are 2 more trees to choose from, namely, Narra and Dungon.

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.)"

Lost Your Job This Pandemic? Work Online!

Experts say there will be millions of people losing their jobs during this crisis.

Small businesses also have higher chances of not recovering after this lock-down.

Actually, it has already started.

I can see posts ranting about not receiving SAPs, etc.

Worries about not having enough money because they could not go to work and their resources deflating.

But hey, if you can post online about your problems, the solution can also be found online!

Work online!

Hatputito in Quarantine

This is bad. My blog post schedule is turning into a monthly one or maybe less often than a month. 😆

Apologies if I have not been posting weekly this year.

I have a lot on my plate and been balancing between work and life.

How's your life by the way?

How are you coping up with all this Covid-19 hysteria?

Especially that the Enhanced Community Quarantine has been extended to 30th of April?

PRC License Renewal still as easy as 1, 2, 3 with a Catch!

It's been a while!!!! This is so late of a blog post but I need to post it no matter what!! 😆

This is my second time renewing my license.

You can read my first renewal here: PRC License Renewal at Robinsons Galleria as easy as 1, 2, 3!

It is still as easy as 1, 2, 3 but there's a can't choose your own schedule anymore nor can you walk-in. You have to do it online and go to your scheduled date and time to claim your I.D.

Grab | How to Cash in using GCash

So I've been recently using Grab for my two (2) aunties, and it's kind of hassle to pay cash (you know how much it is compared to regular taxis and usually I just book them but I don't go with them) and how it could be cheaper if you pay using Grab Pay (because of the promos and coupons).

And since I've been a patron of GCash (you know this if you've been reading my past blog posts), it would really be convenient if I could pay Grab using GCash.

For the reason that I rarely pay cash now with my purchases and bills payment, but online instead.
