Get a Limited Edition Swirl Card from CBTL, Win a Sony Vaio!

I was always content with my Coffee Bean Hot Vanilla. It's like sipping special sweet milk on a cold day or a cold CBTL store. I was never a fan of the Coffee Shops during my college years and I am only beginning to enjoy working and eating in a coffee shop while time slips away. I'm also a fan of the CBTL Spicy Tuna Linguini. I recently bought a Swirl Card for my WIFI use (need to spend at least P45) at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and I chanced upon the Limited Edition Blue Swirl Rewards Card and the Sony Vaio promotion.

Saving Tip # 7 - Use Your Credit Card to Do What You Want

I love my Allied Bank Mabuhay Miles MasterCard. It's the coolest way to spend my money. What's the secret to saving money in spending money? It's not only the miles. It's not using your credit card as a credit card but as a debit card. I need to condition myself to spend only what I have and if I have both the cash and the credit card, I choose to pay via credit card and separate the cash already in my wallet. The Ultimate Reward - Miles to Everywhere in the World and a chance to practice holding that cash until I clear it with the bank.

Saving Tip # 6 - Take a Hint, Start ANew - Year 2011

I know the banks may already be closed for the holidays and this post came a little too late. I cleared all my outstanding accounts today in preparation for the New Year. I feel so light and I am looking forward to my next credit card statement indicating a P 0.00 balance there. The key to getting that zero credit card balance is not adding any more expenses to the record or if you really have to spend, pay that debt and your accountabilities before that billing man arrives.

Saving Tip # 5 - Buy Gifts for No Occasion

I waited until Christmas to open my gifts. I obviously love receiving gifts. I don't share the same views as to giving them though. I don't force myself to conform with the Holiday Rush (as well as the Pasalubong Rush, see my Saving Tip # 4 in this link). I prefer to give gifts-for-no-occasion than gifts-for-an-occasion.

Eat Your Way to Italy Without an Itinerary

My plan is to take in the sights and flavors of Italy without an itinerary. All I need are maps and a plane ticket. To be lost is an adventure in itself. To meet new people is always an experience to remember.  

I learned something from the KLM ad they kept on playing during my 5-day Movie Marathon during the CineEuropa Festival ( 

That sometimes, it's not just all about the destination, it's the journey on how you get there that matters (even just by dreaming about it, maybe the universe will conspire to make it happen if it sees your effort and desire).

Win Whooga Ugg Boots!

What do you first think of when you hear "Ugg"? Mine was caveman during that first time I heard about this travel essential. I looked down on my happy friend's feet during that cold winter month in Beijing and I told myself that I had never seen such hideous and primitive-looking shoes in my life. The name they gave it made me laugh every time as I quickly formed an image that I was with women from the ice age. The fad, however, took the whole city by storm. Everywhere I looked, there were happy and satisfied Ugg Boot customers all around me. I managed to try it on one night and was surprised that I felt warm in an instant. I shrugged all the shivers away. At that time, I knew that a pair of cavewoman ugg boots was the key to end my winter blues. Plus, the higher the better. Slowly, I felt the urge to buy one and accepted my change of heart (that it wasn't as bad-looking as I thought).

Win Beauty Products from EarthlingGorgeous.Com Contest!

What would I get out of 50x fairer skin? No one knows for sure. It might be a shot to get noticed for my face instead of other unflattering parts. I might just be discovered and become an overnight star. I was thinking something in the likes of traveling and not bothering what I look like anymore because I know I look gorgeous and perfect already (even if I eat a lot in my travels). It might just give a little boost of confidence. How about a confident, pampered and perfect traveling star?

Like EarthlingGorgeous.Com, I guess I want to have 50x fairer skin too.

WOW Amazing Asia Photo Contest!

Another great opportunity has come wrapped as a very attractive gift. It's the chance to find long-lost friends through the WOW Amazing Asia Photo Contest. I've been trying to reconnect with old friends through Facebook and other social sites but I haven't been successful for some because they don't live here in the Philippines. Through this contest, I found out about Koolred, a community about traveling. Hopefully, I can either win by finding my friends or winning the trip to Indonesia, Thailand or Malaysia.

Traveling is also about meeting new friends, cherishing our moments together and keeping the connection alive. If you see them, tell them I said, "Hi!"

I Want to Win a Winter Trip to Batanes from SEAIR!

My Guiltless Getaways Blog Entry for SEAIR's Contest

Is there such a thing as winter in the Philippines? They say Batanes has four seasons! I'd love to find out for myself and for everybody who is as curious as I am. Every year, we flock to other cooler international destinations to escape the Manila heat. Locals frequent Baguio because of the high altitude and cold weather. We also go to Tagaytay because of its proximity to Manila and the cold weather. I love cold weather escapes because you know you're not in Manila anymore. Sometimes, we just want to get away from it all and get a sense that we are on vacation. Why not go to Batanes?

Friday Munch Post: Improvised Strawberry-Melon Milk Shake

It's Friday once again - Time for the weekend getaways and my Friday Much Post!

I found some left-over melons in our fridge! It was not in season so although they were pretty juicy, the taste wasn't as attractive enough to eat the pieces one by one. I wanted to make some Melon Juice but I wanted the meat shredded and not squared so it was too cumbersome for that.

I came up with Strawberry-Melon Milk Shake after thinking that maybe 2 fruits were healthier than 1. The milk would prevent osteoporosis and the shake can ward off the heat. It just made sense to do everything without spending anything.

Saving Tip # 4 - Traveling and Looking To Buy Souvenirs?

Do we always have to buy tokens for our trips? I hope I'm not alone with this mindset (I grew up in this culture of mandatory pasalubongs and souvenirs). I have just stopped buying souvenirs that I just pick out of a store and have no real value to me when I go home. I am not encouraging others not to buy but do not just buy for the sake of not losing face. I am saying that if you aren't a collector, then stop yourself from buying things in your trips that will only be forgotten once you get home. I am saying that if you can't find a gift to take home or if you don't have time to buy then don't buy anything. Save that little money for your next trip and most importantly, save your memories.

Saving Tip # 3 - My Curb, Delay and Control Tactic; My Entry to the Cost-Cutting Tactics Contest

I remember my mom told me these words once or twice when I was still learning to shop: "If you want something, buy it at that moment or you may end up regretting it when it's gone." It can become pretty easy to splurge too when you're spending someone else's money, be it your parent's or if you have a doting boyfriend or husband. That phrase has been stuck with me ever since and it was my shopping guide for the longest time (because it makes sense). I have struggled to deal with that habit especially during that shift when I was earning my own money as my conscience kept on torturing me to use my savings.

I am still a work in progress but I am better at controlling my impulses now than before. My trick: I intentionally let my poor memory get in the way and make it work to my advantage.

Plus Friends Through This Post and the Visayas Blogging Summit

Okay, so I was doing some research on Iloilo bloggers (for my upcoming trip) and I came up with almost nothing in Blogger. I was too tired going through 400+ entries to extend my search in WordPress. It is a little discouraging to blog when you see that some just have one or two entries from two or three years ago and did not continue anymore. I even saw a handful with the same template I used here.

I want to encourage blogging because it is a free means to express yourself and your interests if you don't take into account the electricity and internet bills. This post is my way of encouraging myself to continue with what I started through blogging, to go even further by extending myself outwards and to take things to the next level.

I think that it is also worth mentioning that there is a Visayas Blogging Summit happening in Iloilo on November 27, 2010. The event is free if registered. The airfares are reasonable (Air Philippines being the cheapest) and the hotels don't cost that much (they have a partner hotel). The Iloilo tour is an added bonus (minimal fee I think) since you are already there. It's my chance of a lifetime since I do love traveling (My Travel Blog: Guiltless Getaways) with friends and meeting new ones in the process. I heard it's the first of its kind in the Visayas.

Here's the link for the summit:

Yellow Cab Weekly Giveaway

Saving Tip # 2 - Buy Things Strategically During a Sale

Don't have the patience or the time or the stomach to rummage all the sale items in the pile in A store? Multiply that with a few more stores plus the crowd will leave you wishing that you shouldn't have come in the first place (especially when you can't seem to find anything to buy).

Saving Tip # 2: If you can't fight the urge not to buy, then do not torture yourself. Save yourself, however, from the headache, the regret and any ill-feelings by thinking of a specific article of clothing the night before. Start with "I need a top for my gimik next Saturday... then to I need a sleeveless top for my gimik next Saturday... and narrow it down further to I need a white sleeveless top for my gimik next Saturday and so on. This will help qualify your search in every pile that you find per store and it will feel like a treasure hunt for that best white sleeveless top (thus it will be more fun and not irritating). Ignore anything that is not a top, not white and is not sleeveless. If you don't find it, maybe it's not meant to be? You'll forget about it unless you really really need it.

Boy-Kuripot just came up with a listing for this payday weekend. Here's a chance to practice:

How to Get Visa Fee Waivers to Taiwan

Are you a Philippine passport holder? Normally, you would have to get a visa to go to Taiwan. Book that flight to Taiwan spontaneously while the fares are low and increase your pocket money by doing this! Check out my post on how you can travel to Taiwan without having to spend P2500 for a Taiwan visa. It is ideal to do this one month before departure.

Kythe Real Love Campaign

I will share my love to the kids of Kythe by suggesting that we put up another helpful and proven program like Locks of Love and willingly donate our beautiful hair (which we will cut off anyway) so that we may heal the hearts too of those who have lost their self-esteem to cancer. It was the same effort that has been tested here for cleaning up the oil spill in beautiful Guimaras. We have the heart to help our country and our countrymen. The Real Love Campaign is existent now as proof. - This is my statement.

Don't do it just for the free T-shirt.
