Expressing one’s love toward loved ones is but just natural for any human, which probably is the key to creating such app called ‘Things I Like’ or ‘TIL’.
‘TIL’ is an application that enables one to see what his or her loved ones like. Thus, in the process, it also allows the viewer to post his or her own, anytime, anywhere.
Since Christmastime is just around the corner—this application could very well reflect the thoughts of William Wordsworth, an English romantic poet who once wrote: “Fill the paper [modified, but with more emphasis] breathings of one’s heart.”
Though Wordsworth said about ‘paper’, but with the advancement of technology these days and how humans [especially Filipinos] have become attached to social media, which has made the distance of humankind become more intimate and reachable by just simply clicking the button[s] online.
This app is a realization of not just simply telling people about one’s dreams, hopes, wishes and all—it is simply by showing one’s list of heart’s desires. It is also the newest way to discover, connect and share the things that one likes.
How one start to show his or her wish list? Simply download the app for free via Google Play. To install it on mobile phones, click here.
As soon as it is installed, one can start exploring the app and add one’s friends in his contacts just like the setup on facebook. One can even customize his or her friends by putting or labeling them in a particular group.
Leonardo da Vinci’s words hold true till this very day, “Water is the driving force of all nature.”
Having this in mind, Living Water System, Inc. (LWSI), as a corporation is now on its 13th year and from a sole proprietorship business—it has grown by leaps and bounds with a strong 4, 876 units and franchisees nationwide; and in connection with the celebration—it also launched its new endorser—the Filipino film and television actor, musician, model, and producer—Mr. Piolo Pascual.
The anniversary celebration along with the signing of contract with Mr. Pascual and his public appearance was held on Wednesday, November 8 at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria.
Pascual as the newest brand ambassador is but fitting to reflect the tagline ‘Brighter, Better and Bolder’. As an artist, Pascual also tried venturing into a lot of things that challenged him to be a better version of himself. In fact, the actor is convinced with the way how LWSI had grown and conducted its business through the years. He is even thinking of reviving the water refilling stations that his family used to have back then.
As a company, LWSI has introduced so many ‘firsts’ such as Alkaline Water, Oxygenated Water and Hydrogen Rich Drinking Water. Being engage in the water business—they are not just giving people clean and safe drinking water, but also the choice to what they want to prefer to buy. Also, it opens the doors for Filipinos to be empowered through entrepreneurship. The company has successfully designed a good program for franchising.
On May 17, athlete-singer-actor Matteo Guidicelli, in cooperation with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI), launched a series of vlogs (video blogs) at B Hotel in Quezon City. The vlogs aim to teach Filipinos about how investing can help make their #lifegoals come true.
To be financially free, it starts with a detailed plan and the willingness to commit to such plan. Though the vlogs, dubbed as ‘Make It Mutual’ with topics that are relevant to personal finance, such as growing one’s money, beating inflation and investing regularly—are geared to empowering Filipinos to be wise in managing and growing their finances.
The vlogs were created for the viewer to easily relate these to real life situations, the modules shall be demonstrated in themes familiar to them, like travel, fashion, and fitness, among others. All videos will be shared via social media to make it readily accessible.
This is not the first time that Guiicelli did a financial literacy campaign for SLAMCI. It was in November 2015 when he also supported SLAMCI’s campaign against investment scams and was dubbed as ‘Slam the Scam’. He was glad to be part of it in helping people from getting victimized by scammers like the pyramid scams.
And being a policy holder of Sun Life, it has opened him to be wiser with his finances and where to invest his earnings. He said that with the insurance advisors he has now, “They give me insights on what to invest in and what not to invest in.”
Apart from the insurance policy he insured himself with, he also got Sun Life’s Prosperity Card, which was launched August last year. The card is an investment worth Php5,000, which may be invested in any of the peso-denominated mutual funds managed by SLAMCI under its Sun Life Prosperity Funds. The first-of-its-kind in the market, it has revolutionized mutual funds investing in the country.
“With the prosperity card, it earned me six percent (6%), It is a good start for high school students to start with or the millennial these days to start investing via this card.”
In Cebu, last year, he also opened his restaurant business called Trattoria da Gianni, which is located in Banilad, Cebu City.
The ‘Make It Mutual’ campaign is just the first of Sun Life’s series of financial literacy initiatives this year. According to Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa, more will be launched in the coming days as Sun Life rolls out its Financial Independence Month campaign in June.
