Emergency Loan for Government Employees

Happy new year!

Our country is beset by another typhoon so here's a little tip which can hopefully help our kababayans: emergency loan with GSIS.

GSIS members working or residing in the areas declared under a state of calamanity, and those old-age pensioners can avail of an emergency loan.

Please click on this link for details.

I think the loanable amount if P40,000 for those without existing emergency loans, and P20,000 for those with existing emergency loans.

Ingat po.

Be Careful When Buying Online

It's the holidays, so I am still online window shopping, or is it window online shopping? Haha!

While browsing through some online shops, I saw some interesting stuff (being sarcastic here, my dears). Here they are:

1. Brand new fake tooth cover



Who, in his right mind, would bay second hand fake tooth/cover-whatever-that-is?

2. Polaroid camera cover

There's really nothing wrong with buying a polaroid camera cover IF the description fits the name of the product.


See the description: HD pixels, accurate recording action, blah blah, for only P599.00.  This description is for the camera, and not for the cover which is the one being sold. If one is not too careful, that person would think that he/she is buying a polaroid camera, and not a cover, at a very cheap price!

3. Diffuser

Diffusers are good. I am just not sure if they really serve the purpose, but a good friend gave me a portable one and I like user it.



I really have no problem with the description of this product, but the answers of the seller to the customer queries bugged me, a lot.



5 inch. Wahahahahaha!

Some people would say, "are arte naman nito," or "ang yabang, akala mo naman ang galing mag-English." But I see a deeper meaning here. If a seller would not take great care in ensuring that the description of the product is exactly what the product is, or would not take time to  properly answer a customer's questions about the product, then that says a lot about the product that one is buying.

Mahirap kumita ng pera, and winning in the lottery is not an everyday occurrence, so that's why we have to be careful where we are putting our money.

True, online shopping is really convenient. I do a lot of my shopping online too, but we have to really know what we are paying for - the product, its quality, and the after-sales service.

So, as the saying goes, buyers beware!

Live and Be Well with Taiwan Excellence Products





Live and Be Well with Taiwan Excellence Products
Rapid technological innovation has paved the way for better healthcare and medical solutions. Older people can move around with ease thanks to e-motors and scooters, people monitor their  physical activity with handy trackers, and surgeons are able to perform more efficient and safer operations with smart surgical solutions.
This is very important because the thought of getting a procedure can be terrifying for someone. I remember a friend who almost screamed while having her MRI in the hospital. Smart healthcare solutions are very crucial for patients who feel intimidated by hospital equipment and procedures. When my Papa was hospitalized before his death, getting his blood sugar was a huge problem every time!
            These are just some of the breakthroughs of Taiwan Smart Healthcare products. Bearing the Taiwan Seal of Excellence—a mark accorded only to the highest quality brands— these revolutionary products have guided people toward healthier and safer lives.
Utilizing 3D and Digital Imaging for Safer Surgeries
In minimally invasive surgery, fewer and smaller incisions are made on the body to lessen post-operative pain, blood loss, and scarring. Thin needles and an endoscope, a tube-shaped instrument with a camera and light, are used to guide the operation. The MonoStereo 3D System converts the 2D video captured by the endoscope into a 3D display on a monitor. Through these images, doctors can get accurate depth feedback in real-time, ensuring surgical precision and faster procedures.
