I attended a Sun Life Financial event last Friday named "Let's have some FUNds #SunLifeFunday" at Rekado Davao. After work, I immediately went to the venue to check out what Sun Life Financial prepared for us. I came and listened to the speakers and I considered it as a wake-up call!

The event just started when I arrived at the venue. Everyone's listening to Mark Bonifacio's speech on how to save money and find ways to earn more. It was indeed a slap to my face when he talked about bad spending habits and not saving money for future use. Every detail of his presentation was on point and realistic.

He mentioned that examining my bills and subscriptions are also important. I even denied this fact before but now I am listing the subscriptions that I really don't need and will cut them out as soon as possible.

What really hit me the most was when he mentioned bad money habits. I didn't even know about the term "emotional spending" until that very moment. I realized I'm doing it for the longest time and I need to stop it ASAP. It's like you're in a bad mood and wants to buy anything just to make you happy or you're stressed from work, you'll go shopping for new clothes or take out expensive food.

Impulsive buying is also one of my problems. You're off to the mall just to buy groceries but ended up going home with shopping bags.

JP Fabian, a Sun Life Financial Advisor taught us to start investing for our future ASAP. He shared his experiences, realizations, on how he started saving up, and eventually became a Sun Life Financial Advisor. He was hospitalized before and found out that he's no longer able to sustain the expenses at the hospital. Without an insurance, he eventually asked money from his parents. He taught us that we should be prepared for anything and get a trusted insurance company.

It was an eye-opener experience for me and I really needed that. Especially lately I'm having problems handling my own finances. I would love to take part in their next events and learn more from them. Start to live brighter today and check out Sun Life Financial.

Huawei released Nova 2i late last year and it became such a big hit that it was sold out on its first day in the Philippines! I bought one a month after because I waited for the blue one and I've been loving it ever since.

Now Huawei released its successor, the Nova 3i and I feel excited when I saw it for the first time. I read fresh reviews online and it really got my interest. But is it going to be a big hit again?

I had the chance to take a closer look and feel of the Nova 3i before its official Philippine Launch at the Huawei Store (8telcom Mobile Solutions) inside Victoria Plaza Mall. First impressions really last and here are the reasons why this new mid-range smartphone is going to be everyone's favorite.

  • It's sleeker and more premium looking with 2.5D glass on its front and back with glossy metal frame. The 6.3-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080) provides a wider view. Plus it has a notch design.
  • It has a micro SD card slot good for 2 sims or with 1 memory card that can support up to 256 GB.
  • With specialized four AI Cameras solution of 24MP + 2MP on the front and 16MP + 2MP on the back. The cameras at the back are slightly protruded.
  • With AR features for games and taking photos.
  • Scenery recognition can adjust the surroundings to match your true beauty in selfies.
  • Backgrounds - it adds different cute designs and animations to your selfies.
  • 3D QMojis are their own version of facial animation and expressions that can add more fun to your messaging, texts, and videos. 
  • With Kirin 710 Processor that delivers smooth responsiveness, AI photo features, and immersive gaming experience.
  • With 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage! That's doubled storage compared to Nova 2i.
  • It runs in the latest Android 8.1 Oreo.
  • With fingerprint sensor and face unlock feature,

  • Battery life is the same with Nova 2i of 3,340mAh. It lasts the whole day without charging.
  • It is available in black, pearl white, and my favorite the Iris Purple.

Though it is a fingerprint magnet, I still love how it looks and it performs really well. Grab one now at the nearest 8telcom Mobile Solutions store in Davao. Get freebies when you buy today!

COMFORTABLE and STYLISH, these are two things we consider in choosing a new pair of shoes. Is it comfortable on your soles or heels? Does it pair with anything you wear today? It's hard to find that suits best on your feet especially there are a lot of footwear brands on the market today. But every time I ask my friends what's the most comfortable and stylish shoes they can recommend, they always say FitFlop.

I posted a few photos of FitFlop shoes and sandals a few weeks back on Facebook and I didn't expect to receive plenty of likes and comments. All of the comments and reviews I received were positive.

"It's very comfy! Its better than wearing rubber shoes with socks."

"It's great for long walks."

"Worth it. It's durable! I've been using mine for 3 years now."

"It corrects posture."

"I love their newest collection!"

"I highly recommend it!"

I do not own a pair until Primer Group of Companies, the distributor of Fitflop in the Philippines, invited me to get a pair at their store. Frankly speaking, I did not know that they have men's footwear. It came as a surprise when we visited their store at Abreeza Ayala Mall.

At first look, I immediately fell in love with all of their shoes and sandals. All are stylish and on-trend. I tried on their Neoprene Back-strap Sandals and it really looks good on me and it's very comfortable to wear. Same goes for the Sporty-Pop Canvas Sneakers. I've never had a pair of shoes as comfortable as this.

I chose the Sporty-Pop Sneakers so I can wear it anywhere especially at work. I've been hunting for a new pair of shoes because I have heel problems for quite some time now. And I want to test it if it will somehow ease the pain and discomfort I feel every time I walk.

I've been wearing it for almost a month now and I can really tell the difference. I have less to no heel pains ever since I started wearing it. No more corns and toe calluses too!

I also love how simple yet on-trend my Sporty-Pop sneakers looks like. It pairs with anything I wear when I go out for work or any casual event.
