Convert GCash to Globe Rewards Points until January 30

We are moving into the e-commerce era and we are a nation gradually turning into virtual or mobile payment systems.

Cashless shopping is now embraced by uber mobile consumers and its a relief that GCASH is around.

I’m a fan of cashless shopping since it is very convenient. Just bring your phone, your shopping list, look for their merchant partners and you’re good to go.

I always wanted to redeem Globe rewards like GCs and movies, but I don’t have enough points. Now that holiday seasons are fast approaching, family celebrations, shopping and movies are bonding activities to look forward to.

Its good that Globe allows us until January 30 to convert GCash into Globe Rewards points. I can convert P25 Gcash into 20 Rewards points. Just by following these simple steps

Just call *143# and follow the instructions on your phone on how to convert GCASH into Globe rewards points.

Here’s learning with Bianca and Pocholo about Globe Rewards.


Who’s going to SM Baguio to shop with me?

I heard this exciting news from a friend, and since a Baguio beat isn’t always on a schedule of a busy woman like I am, indulging in with a treat for a bargain, bonus of a cold weather, is something I won’t pass.

My shudder for shopping is undeniable. And like what all women say, shopping is a woman’s thing. You can’t blame me.

I unwittingly consider shopping as a strategy to bring myself into sharper focus. When I speak at an event, I am fuelled by the belief that a perfect top, a belt, and a pair of shoes reflects who you are, especially in the professional sphere.

But beyond that, I also enjoy the pleasure of the purchase itself, especially when sales are around the corner. Buying something on sale is a very special feeling. In fact, the less I pay for something, the more its worth is realized (not that I don’t value my other assets).

So what’s in store for us this coming October 18th to 20th at the biggest mall in the summer capital city, SM City Baguio? Get ready to rejoice sho…

RealStew: The Next Big Thing on the Web

Admittedly, I am a netizen who spends most of my waking hours on the Internet. Data gathering, research, blogging, doing internet marketing and social media strategy with my clients.

As a journalist, its normal to scour the web for valuable information that is shareable to the community. As an advocate of continuous learning, its also important to look for thought-leaders, learn about what is new and what is most likely to trend.

For entrepreneurs like me, I am always on the lookout for business opportunities that the web can offer so I can take advantage of it, learn what others are doing and what the world is going crazy about. Week by week, regularly.

Wearing many hats, I frequent various websites. Most of them social networking sites, per industry site, special interest sites, niche blogs, news sites and finance websites.

There is really no single website that makes me stay or spend my entire web surfing on. All piecemeal.

So when RealStew was introduced to me, which is more of an…

Paano Gumawa ng Sariling GoSakto Promo

Sa GoSakto on the go, ikaw ay panalo!

Sa wakas, ipinakilala na rin ng Globe Telecom ang isa sa pinakabago nilang breakthroughs pagdating sa prepaid service. At sigurado ako na papatok ito sa ating masa, lalo na sa ating mga suking prepaid subscribers na nagkakaroon ng problema magsaulo ng iba’t ibang codes.

Ang GoSakto ay isang napakagandang ideya na tiyak ay makatutulong nang malaki sa ating mobile users sapagkat ‘di lamang mapapagaan ang kanilang buhay, ay mabibigyan pa sila ng kapangyarihang gumawa ng kanilang sariling promo na sakto sa kanilang personal na pangangailangan at swak na swak pa sa kanilang budget.

‘Di na kailangang alalahanin ang masasayang na load dala ng mga limitadong promos, sa GoSakto, ikaw mismo ang may hawak sa dami at haba ng serbisyong iyong matatanggap. Hanep, ‘di ba?! At kung hindi ka pa bilib, bakit hindi mo subukang tantyahin ang magagastos mo sa loob ng isang buwan gamit angGoSakto Data Calculator upang malaman mong ika’y nakatipid.

Madali lang mag- a…

Youth for Change and Development (Y4CD)

It was a weekend like no other. We have been getting the young ones to be part of a relevant organization all throughout the province and we have been successful in doing it.

After days of getting new members in, we were able to gather more than a hundred of them to become minifacilitators for the bigger event ahead.

With the help of fellow United States Government Philippine Alumni Network (USG-PAN) members Mel and Matt, the Provincial Government of Pangasinan thru the Office of the Governor and Sanggunian Secretariat put up the Youth Empowerment Seminar Pangasinan last February 9-10, 2013 at the Capitol beachfront.

Attended by youths from various towns and cities, participants learned to dream for themselves, their families, community and their province.

They were taught on how to be responsible voters, be responsible citizens who know how to take care and love their province.

Governor Espino was also there to tell them that the Provincial Government is doung remarkable projects fo…

New Year Beauty Makeover Vibrante-style

I started the year 2013 right. With 2012 being rewarding for me and my family, starting the new year with a blast was just the right move.

Armed with my plans for the entire year of personal branding and self improvement, a beauty makeover is in place.

But where to have it done was the first question. We had a client that was very serious to penetrate the beauty business in the North and his salon is located in Dagupan.

During our taping, I saw how he transformed ordinary faces into glam works of art. Our girls innate beauty were enhanced and emphasized and they all looked gorgeous in the hands of Marcel.

Vibrante Salon by Marcel Mendoza is the place to go. I endured the first few days of New Year looking old and less vain. I waited for an appointment at his premiere salon.

Vibrante’s services are not for everyone. He created his own niche. Marcel’s regular clients are high end. They belong to the A-list. Yes, he defined his own market. His prices are premium because his services are …
