I reached P100,000 monthly personal income at age 32! :)

Since I started working for my own and for my family in 2010, I never got a chance to have a 6-digit amount of money into my hands - not until I was able to sold a social media account for P300,000, a one-time deal in 2018.


I started my career as a call center agent in BPO industry earning at least P16,000 to P24,000 including taxes and government premiums. With inflation and the ongoing hike of the prices (food, products, rent, services and transportation) in the Philippines, everyone just like me needed another hustle or extra job to earn more and to cope up.

In 2018, I finally ended my 8-year long day job (mostly night job since I clock-in graveyard shifts) when me and my wife started to raise a family with our daughter. Our decision to be with her all the time, to be hands-on in raising her, and to witness every life event with her, did a big impact to my career - to become a full-time dad while being a part-time blogger.



With these big decisions in life, I didn't know that my life was just beginning to get better career-wise and financially while I spent more time with my family. :)

HELPFUL ITEMS YOU CAN USE TO SAVE MONEY!

Here's my list of useful items for you to save or earn money wisely:

ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND PESOS

In the past 4 years, I gambled with my career, and with uncertainties, I earn money INCONSISTENTLY on a monthly basis. But the fact that I have UNLIMITED OPPORTUNITIES with what I do now, it just fuels me to continue and face challenges to achieve more financially.

As we ended the month of September, I was able to earn an accumulated amount of P100,000 from several sources. :)



WHAT ARE MY SOURCES OF INCOME?

As of writing, I have at least 2 major sources of income:


AD NETWORKS
Here is the breakdown amount I earned from ad networks for the month of September 2022 (approximate conversions to PHP):
  • Google AdSense - P28,000
  • AdSterra - P7,500
  • Purple Ads - P1,500

AFFILIATE MARKETING
Here is the breakdown amount I earned from affiliate marketing for the month of September 2022 (approximate conversions to PHP):

My Shopee earnings in September 2022

My Agoda earnings in September 2022

I also get some payments from another affiliate marketing platform called, "12go.asia" where I occasionally get paid a minimum amount of P500.

Other sources of my income are coming from promotional social media posts, photography and online services where I earn minimal (P5,000 to P10,000 a month).

SOCIAL MEDIA MENTIONS / PROMOTIONAL / POSTINGS
Here is the breakdown amount I earned from social media promotions for the month of September 2022 (approximate conversions to PHP):
  • Facebook - P5,500

For online service, me and my wife worked together with her foreign client to fulfill some of tasks and assignments within a month. The worth of hours I spent (not including hers) for these tasks is approximate amount of P20,000/mo.

IF I DID IT, YOU CAN DO IT, TOO!

I'm closing this little celebration of mine with a thought that might change your life. Sometimes, you just need to go out of your comfort zone to find what you really desire. Opportunities are everywhere. You just have to grab it when you have it. Everything is possible. :)

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS


Heavy Rainfall
• This morning through early afternoon: Moderate to heavy rains over Isabela, Aurora, Quezon including Polillo Islands, Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Isabela. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over mainland Cagayan, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Marinduque, Romblon, and the rest of Bicol Region. 
• This early afternoon through tomorrow early morning: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Metro Manila, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Aurora, Rizal, and the northern portion of Quezon including Polillo Islands. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Benguet, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Pangasinan, Cavite, Laguna, the central portion of Quezon, and Camarines Norte. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Mindoro Provinces, Marinduque, and the rest of CALABARZON and Bicol Region.
• Tomorrow early morning through early afternoon: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Bulacan. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains Metro Manila, Pangasinan, Cavite, Occidental Mindoro, and the rest of Central Luzon. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Mountain Province, Ifugao, Benguet, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Oriental Mindoro, and the rest of CALABARZON.
• Under these conditions, scattered to widespread flooding and rain-induced landslides are expected, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps and in localities with significant antecedent rainfall.
• Due to the Southwest Monsoon enhanced by KARDING, occasional to monsoon rains are also possible over Visayas and the rest of Southern Luzon, especially on their western sections. For more information, refer to the 24-Hour Public Weather Forecast issued at 4:00 AM today. Furthermore, the issuance of Weather Advisory for Southwest Monsoon is not ruled out.

Severe Winds
During the passage of KARDING, areas under Wind Signal No. 4 and No.5 will experience winds peaking at typhoon-force strength, while winds may reach storm-force in strength within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 3 is hoisted. Gale-force conditions are likely any of the areas where Wind Signal no.2 is hoisted, while strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) will be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is currently in effect. 

Coastal Inundation
There is a high to very high risk of storm surge more than 3.0 m in height in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of northern Quezon including Polillo Islands and Aurora. In addition, a moderate to high risk of storm surge is also possible over Camarines Norte, Pangasinan, Zambales, Bulacan, the northern portion of Metro Manila, the southern portion of La Union, and the rest of Quezon. The combined effects of storm surge and high waves breaking along the coast may cause life-threatening and damaging inundation or flooding. For more information, refer to Storm Surge Warning #2 issued at 11:00 AM today.

HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

• Under the influence of KARDING, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the eastern and western seaboards of Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #3 issued at 5:00 AM. 
• In the next 24 hours, KARDING and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon will also bring moderate to rough seas over the northern and western seaboards of Luzon that are not under any gale warning (1.5 to 3.5 m) and the western seaboard of Visayas (1.2 to 2.5 m). These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.

ACTIVITIES AND TOURS IN MANILA


TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK

• Super Typhoon KARDING is forecast to track generally westward in the next 6 to 12 hours, then west northwestward for the remainder of the day. On the forecast track, KARDING will likely make landfall in the vicinity of the northern portion of Quezon or the southern portion of Aurora tonight. The possibility of an earlier (afternoon) landfall or close approach in the vicinity of Polillo Islands is not ruled out. 
• For the remainder of this evening post-landfall through tomorrow early morning, KARDING will traverse the landmass of Central Luzon and emerge over the West Philippine Sea via the coastal waters of Zambales or Pangasinan. The typhoon will then continue tracking generally westward over the West Philippine Sea for the remainder of the forecast period.
• KARDING is forecast to continue intensifying and may make landfall at or near a peak intensity of 185-205 km/h. Frictional effects during landfall and traverse of the Luzon landmass will weaken KARDING throughout the evening through tomorrow early morning, although it is highly likely that this tropical cyclone will remain a typhoon while crossing the landmass. 


Considering these developments, the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take all necessary measures to protect life and property. Persons living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions from local officials. For heavy rainfall warnings, thunderstorm/rainfall advisories, and other severe weather information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your local PAGASA Regional Services Division.

The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued at 2:00 PM today.

Super Typhoon Karding puts Polillo Islands under Signal no. 5, Metro Manila under Signal no. 3


Driving or riding along Metro Manila and the Philippines as a whole can often be stressful due to the fact that Local Government Units (LGUs) have their own different ordinances when it comes to traffic management.


While one ordinance can be legal in a town, it can be considered a traffic violation in the next city or town.

Loading...

If apprehended by a local traffic enforcer, say in Manila, and you happen to be from Lipa City in Batangas, the settlement of that traffic violation can be a nightmare since you need to allot the whole day to travel back to Manila, not to mention the amount of time you would spend in the queue waiting for your name to be called to get your driver’s license back.


Worse, some enterprising local traffic enforcers use the above situation to scare drivers and force them to “settle” the traffic violation on the street level to avoid the hassle.


According to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), these local traffic enforcers, unless duly deputized by the Land Transportation Office (LTO), cannot and should never confiscate a driver’s license of a traffic violator.



In a memorandum issued by DILG dated September 14, 2022, Interior Secretary, Benhhur Abalos has reiterated that although LGUs can issue their own citation tickets on traffic violators, they cannot confiscate a driver’s license unless they are a deputized traffic enforcer of the LTO.

“The LGUs can issue traffic citation tickets but only the LTO and their deputized agents can confiscate driver’s licenses.”

Sec. Abalos has also directed LGUs to review their local ordinances and policies to ensure conformity and compliance with the said provision.

Robinsons Convenience Stores, Inc. (RCSI) on Thursday announced that it would rename its Ministop convenience stores to Uncle John’s.


According to a statement from the Gokongwei group, the new name banked on the popularity of chain of store’s Uncle John's Fried Chicken.

Big changes are happening over at Ministop

“We are pleased to inform you that we are changing the store banner name 'Ministop' to 'Uncle John's,'” Ministop writes in a statement. After all, the 20-year-old brand is arguably best known locally for their fried chicken dubbed, yup, Uncle John, named after founder John Gokongwei, Jr. himself. 

“It is also a celebration of the legacy of the late founder, Mr. John Gokongwei, Jr. of Robinsons Retail, the holding company of the convenience store chain,” the statement read.



The new banner name was the winning entry in a contest, which asked for suggestions for a new name for the store.

With over 80,000 participants, Uncle John’s came up as the top choice among the entries.



“Uncle John's has become a household name for consumers on-the-go, looking for convenient options without sacrificing quality and taste in food,” said Suresh Ramalinggam, General Manager of Robinsons Convenience Stores Inc.

“Using it as the platform in the reinvention of our stores provides us with a stronger brand story that our customers can relate to,” Ramalinggam added.



In February this year, Robinsons Retail acquired the 40% stake of Ministop Japan in RCSI. With this, RCSI is now a 100% Filipino owned company.

International operations

Ministop also operates in the Philippines (under Robinsons Malls), China, Vietnam and Kazakhstan.

South Korea

The first Ministop store in South Korea opened in November 1990 in Mok-dong, as a joint-venture with Daesang Corporation; Ministop bought Daesang's stake in the venture in 2003. As of October 2017, there were 2418 operating Ministop stores.

In January 2022, Lotte Corporation acquired the entire stake of Ministop Korea Co. for 313.37 billion won ($263 million).

Philippines

In December of 2000, the Japan-based convenience store chain Ministop made its way to the Philippines, being brought to the country by Robinsons Retail Holdings, Inc. in partnership with Ministop Japan and Mitsubishi Corporation.

In January 2022, Robinsons Group assumed full ownership of the Ministop business in the Philippines with 460 branches.

On September 22, 2022, they announced that all Ministop stores in the country will be rebranded as Uncle John's. The name, coming from the fried chicken brand sold in those stores, was chosen after topping the naming contest which they earlier ran.
