"Debt to Investment" Why Not?


Did You Know:

From the Bible, Money is already written many centuries ago. You can read it in the below Chapter from the book of Ecclesiastes written by the wise man King Solomon.

Ecclesiastes 10:19
A feast is made for laughter, And wine makes the life glad; And money is the answer for all things.
This is my first time to attend a Workshop educating people how to invest and  utilize their money in a more productive way. I am thankful to my wife who brought me here and to Sunlife Philippines who has given me the opportunity to listen and acquire knowledge about the importance of investing.

As we all know, money plays an important role in our life. If Money is the topic definitely lots of people are interested that's why we are all here too :)


Debt "Utang" or Credit - it's simply defined as using other people's money, and behind of that you have the reason why you are borrowing money.

You borrow because someone needs to be hospitalized, need  to pay some bills, buy something else, or worst need to pay his credit to other.

Borrowing money can be risky and there is a price for it. There is the tendency you can't able to pay, but then borrowing can be useful if we know how to handle it.


I understand that planning is very important for borrowing money and your purpose of doing it.



We have to take responsibility for our own condition.

I have learned from this discussion with a proper knowledge and discipline how to use debt it can result to profitable income.

Reliving the History with Zooper Cruise


 
National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal once said, “Ang taong hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan, hindi makakarating sa patutunguhan.” (He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.) This adage is a constant reminder for each one of us to look back where we came from, so that we may learn from the lessons of the past.
 
Our country has a very rich and colorful history and multi-racial culture as told through history books, literary works, various landmarks, and from the stories passed along by our ancestors through the generations. We may ask ourselves, “How much do we know about our history and culture?” A lot. Or maybe not that much? Decades have passed and most of us can only remember so much about our history and culture relying on books and multimedia sources, among others.
 
One of the most prominent landmark mentioned in Philippine history books is the Pasig River. National hero and novelist Dr. Jose Rizal even mentioned it in his two books Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Due to its geographical location which cuts through several Metro Manila cities, Pasig River became the gateway to the country’s historical, cultural and social life.

Through the years, industrialization has brought so much progress to various sectors of the government and the surrounding nearby communities, thus, Pasig River slowly lost its beauty as more factories were built along or near the banks. But with the recent rehabilitation efforts in place, bit by bit, the Pasig River is starting to gain back its glory.
 
Now, Zoomanity Group gives us one very good reason to relive and revive our country’s rich and colorful history and culture through the organized tours of the Pasig River aboard the air-conditioned ferries with Zooper Cruise.
 
Zooper Cruise offers all local and foreign tourists a relaxing, fun, enjoyable and educational tour of the Pasig River and the Philippine history. The tour kicks off at the Valenzuela Station in Guadalupe, Makati to Plaza Mexico in Intramuros. The tour offers a glimpse of the famous Malacanang Palace, which is the official residence of the President of the Republic of the Philippines and the classic architectural design of the Philippine Post Office Building, passing through decades-old bridges. Tour participants can indulge in the specially prepared snacks aboard, a souvenir photo and a sumptuous lauriat dinner in a restaurant in the heart of Binondo to cap off the day. All these for only Php1,999.00 per person.
 
Currently, there are two scheduled tours on the following dates: October 15 and November 11, 2016, from 3pm up to 9pm. The pick-up of all tour participants is at Alveo Place in Ayala Circuit at exactly 2:30 in the afternoon. A shuttle will then take them to Valenzuela Station in JP Rizal.
 
Remarkably, part of the proceeds of the Zooper Cruise tours will benefit the conservation projects of CSR-Zoomanity Foundation under the Yupangco Group of Companies.
 
Zooper Cruise offers special packages for schools and companies such as Educational Tour, Company Tour and Events, Anniversaries, Birthdays and other special occasions.
 
For reservations and tour packages enquiries, please contact Grace Nicolas at 09166299381, or send an email to grace@tagmedia.asia.
