How to Retire Before the Age of 50 by Chinkee Tan

Would you like to know how to retire before the age of 50? I would, though I feel that it’s not totally possible since I’m already in my late 40s. But still, I would like to be able to be able to free myself from working so hard in my old age without having to worry about my finances. Gone are the days when I can say “I still have time.” How I wish I have the knowledge to manage my finances even in my youth. I sure don’t but that doesn’t mean I can’t gain that know-how now and put it to practice. I recently learned that Chinkee Tan will be conducting a conference dubbed “How to Retire Before the Age of 50” on June 20, 2015, Saturday at Metro Tent, Metro Walk in Pasig City.

Chinese New Year 2015 at Solaire Resort and Casino

The Money Tree at Solaire Resort and Casino

Solaire Resort and Casino welcomes the Chinese New Year for 2015 with traditional festivities, special packages and treats. Although I’m of Chinese descent, I grew up with my family not observing Chinese traditions. So an opportunity to witness how it’s done is always welcome for me. I thought February 19, 2015 will just be a regular day for me, until the opportunity to visit Solaire to cover their activities for the day came along. Customers were able to watch the Lion Dance. It’s always fun to watch dancers holding the Dragon and Lion heads performing, making gymnastic moves. The dance started at the main lobby and then roamed the various areas of the resort with the usual music and dance routine. Then the money tree located at the Atrium was lit. As we tried to catch up with the Lion Dance, we were able to check out Solaire which was ...

PGA Cars – The World of Super Cars

At the Lamborghini Section of PGA Cars - The World of Super Cars

I’m not a car fanatic and so I don’t usually keep myself updated with what’s out there. But I drool whenever I see a true beauty of design and engineering. And I can’t help myself whenever I pass by EDSA and see the cars on display on PGA Cars. Can you imagine how I felt when I went to the The World of Super Cars Motor Show? Shucks, I catch myself daydreaming while I stare at the beauty of all the Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini and Bentley cars on display. The reality is that I will never be able to afford these super cars. I’m sure even the lowest-priced among these brands will buy me a house & lot, a decent sedan or SUV, and still have money at the bank. But if God allows it, I shall have mine, haha! The Super Cars motor show is a chance to check out what’s out there. ...

Uratex is Committed to Making Sleep Better

I toured the Uratex Plant sometime in 2012 and shared on my blog a glimpse of their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. After two years, I joined the plant tour once again. At the back of my mind, I was a bit hesitant for having made the decision of joining. Will I be learning something new this time around? To give you an idea, I can say that Uratex is committed to making sleep better. Uratex is quite popularly known for foams, particularly bed mattresses. As a matter of fact, I would even say that the brand is synonymous to this product alone. They do manufacture other products such as plastic wares and monobloc chairs. But because they’ve been making foams for several years already, they were able to venture into other products that uses foam such as pillows, sofa bed, and even sala sets. We went around the entire facility starting ...

Jamming with Bamboo is a #BeefedUpSarap Experience

Jamming with Bamboo

I attended “Rock On With An Icon,” an event that officially welcomed Rock Star and The Voice Philippines coach Bamboo Manalac to the Jollibee Family. Held at the Craft Pub and Grill at The Fort Strip last January 21st, it was an awesome experience watching him perform. Most of all, we had a chance to sing with him and I can say that jamming with Bamboo is a #BeefedUpSarap experience. And as an icing on the cake, I was part of the group that jammed and won the competition. I’m sure you’ve seen the newest television commercial of Jollibee for one of it’s dishes, the Garlic Pepper Beef featuring Bamboo in the lead. It’s one of my favorite dish to order, and because it’s only Php50, I can order it over and over again. For me, a beef dish makes dining special and I experience that whenever I’m at Jollibee, ...

Group Shot - Filipino Bloggers Network Christmas Party 2014

I’ve been blogging for quite sometime now and have been to some organized bloggers group event. It’s a great opportunity to meet blogger friends and meet new ones. Last December 13th, I braved the traffic and the rain just to get to the Filipino Bloggers Network Christmas Party 2014 at the Aluform facilities at Jade Garden, San Juan City. FBN is one of the most active bloggers group in the country, and I’m glad I pushed to attend the event. The Christmas Party was filled with fun games, great food and more importantly, sharing of stories of the fellow online writers. Too bad I missed a lot of the activities. I got to the venue at around 4pm, two hours late. The Filipino Bloggers Network has almost 1400 blogger members at the moment and continue to expand as it provides a venue for bloggers in the Philippines to interact with other ...
