    I am Giving the 52-Week Money Challenge A Try

    The money challenge has been around in years, but it became more popular by Ms. Rhea Mocorro’s blog KuripotPinay. Since then, most people are giving the money challenge a try, which is great because it has somehow “spiced up” the way people save money.   There are a lot of tin can piggy banks in various designs and shapes when you happen to pass by Divisoria. They are all labeled with either “ipon challenge” or “peso money challenge”. The bigger the size, the bigger its target amount to be achieved by the challenger.   Whenever I see these cans, I toyed with the idea of giving this money challenge a…

    I’m Officially Overweight, Now What ?

    Okay, I did not expect this to happen. In my 30++ years of existence, I’ve never thought I would reach this unusual milestone in my life. I am now technically overweight!   Well, I’m one point three kilos heavier than the normal weight. You may think that I am over reacting, but when you reach past 30 years old, every abnormality you experience in your body should be a cause for concern.   Numbers Don’t Lie   My weight registered 59 kilos during our last annual physical exam in April this year. My body mass index (BMI) was still in the “healthy” and “normal” zone. Yes, I’ve gained again, but…
