Why, When, and How to Own a Credit Card

Why, When, and How to Own a Credit Card

I was frightened to own a credit card before because I’ve heard a lot of things saying that having a credit card can put you into too much trouble when it comes to your finances.  Not to mention the fact that it is not always easy to get one, especially if it’s your first time and you are only starting to build your credit score.  But in these days when everything you need is almost online, owning a credit card has become a necessity.  Flight bookings, ITunes, Netflix subscription, online shopping, online membership, etc. require credit card for payment and if you do not have one, then you must look for other alternatives.  But before owning a credit card you must first know some few things:  Why own a credit card?  When to own one?  How to use it?  If you do know the answers to these questions, then yes, maybe you need one.Read More

Most Fascinating Conspiracy Theories

Most Fascinating Conspiracy Theories

It may be human nature that almost everyone is interested in hearing stories whether stories with factual basis or some stories that are merely heresay or rumor.  We have this insatiable apetite for stories that would challenge our imagination and judgement.  That is why, we all love to hear and read conspiracy theories no matter how ridiculous one story may be.  Some conspiracy theories have been around for years now, and you cannot help but wonder why the stories never die of natural cause, could there be some truth to it or some people are just imagining things?  Many theories were already been debunked, but the persistence of the conspiracy theorists were unwavering.  Which led me to think that, we will see what we wanted to see and we will believe what we wanted to believe.Read More

Top Filipino Christmas Foods

Everyone who is working abroad and away from his family may have a hard time feeling the spirit of Christmas.  This is especially true for those who are working on countries that don’t typically celebrate Christmas like China.  Back in the Philippines, you know that it is almost Christmas; when you hear Christmas songs playing on the radio, when you see vendors selling Christmas decors on the street, when your neigbours are starting to decorate their gardens and the facade of their homes with Christmas ornaments and lights, when it’s getting cold, when there are Christmas parties everywhere, when ABS-CBN has released its Christmas station ID or when you see trailers of movies for the annual MMFF, and most importantly, when your parents are already planning the menu of what you’ll have on Noche Buena. 

This year is my 8th year of celebrating Christmas away from home.  I may have gotten used to celebrating Christmas on a foreign country but that doesn’t mean I am forgetting why it is called the happiest season of all.  In a way, I am still lucky to be working in Macau, thanks to Portuguese influence, the city is not lacking when it comes to celebrating this festive season.  There are lights and Christmas decors everywhere, there are Christmas parties everywhere and there are churches keeping this tradition alive.  If I am lucky and I don’t get to work on Christmas day, I look forward to what I’m serving on our noche bueno table.
