Abrickadabra 2017: The Philippine Lego Fan Convention

Last May 27, 2017, I attended Abrickadabra 2017, a Lego fan convention organized by the Philippine Lego Users Group (PhLUG), held in Promenade Hall in Greenhills.

It showcased the awesome creations of several PhLUG members. The event also became a venue for buying, selling and trading Lego sets, minifigs, spare bricks, and other Lego-related stuff.

UITF Investing 101: Equity Funds are for Long Term Investing

I joined a UITF investing group in Facebook recently and I was surprised with the short term investing mindset of some of the members there, a mindset that has unfortunately influenced members who have zero-knowledge or have little knowledge on UITF investing. As someone who has been investing in UITFs, Mutual Funds (MF) and stocks since 2006, I felt the responsibility to share my views on UITF investing, what I believe is the true essence of UITF investing. I have to admit that at first, I was a hesitant to post what I've written because I'm not sure how most of the members would take my opinion. I'm glad that I pressed the "Post" button because my message received an overwhelming response.

UITF Investing: Equity Funds for Long Term Investing

I would like to re-post the message here, so it can also be shared to other people who are new to UITF investing, or are about to try UITF investing.

Useful Travel Saving Tips: ShopBack, Coupons and More!

Have you heard of ShopBack, the rewards program that lets you get the best deals and discounts on more than 300 online stores, at the same time gives you cashback (cash rebates) whenever you shop online? I often see it in my credit card billing statement but never had the chance to check out the details. So during the Labor Day weekend, I visited the ShopBack website to learn more on how online shoppers can take advantage of this promising rewards program.

ShopBack - Cashback, Coupons and More!

Getting discounts and cashback through ShopBack is very easy. Simply sign up to ShopBack, shop on any online store through ShopBack, wait for the cashback to get into your ShopBack account, and withdraw the cashback to your bank account (or Paypal account). This means that whenever you access your favorite online shop from your ShopBack account, not only will you get the best deals and discounts, you're going to get cashback too for your purchases!
