PBB Otso teens dream big for their families Online netizens have coined the acronym TBAY in referring to the third batch of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Otso’s Big Four, namely Tan, Batit, Ashley and Yen. Like what TBAY means, the latest PBB Big Four teens have demonstrated strength of character, resilience and determination in achieving their dreams. While they may be competing against each other to be the current season’s Big Winner, there is one common thing that holds them together — they all have big dreams for their families. Viewers have determined the batch winner few weeks ago just as the four exited the PBB house. But that’s not the end of their journey yet. According to business unit head Marcus Vinuya, the Big Four housemates from the four batches will be returning to the bahay ni Kuya soon. Marcus added that the batch winners will … [Read more...] about PBB Otso teens dream big for their families
Dreams about big money
Pep Guardiola was angry. One irate Manchester City supporter was practically foaming at the mouth. Even the club's owners must be taken aback by the perplexing reaction to their historic treble. Where's the love? Where's the eternal gratitude for providing the greatest show on Planet Football? Were we not entertained? Actually, the lazy Gladiator quote is an apt one here, because Manchester City's domination of Watford in the FA Cup final was just as one-sided as Lions against Roman slaves and the underlying circumstances were the same. City just couldn't lose to the Hornets. The first treble in English history wasn't the coronation that City hoped for, but a depressing confirmation of monopolistic control. For the first time, Europe's top-five leagues saw their titles retained. Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and City unwittingly came together to highlight the rich-poor divide like never before, because this has never happened before. Even though City became … [Read more...] about Neil Humphreys: Big boys’ dominance bad for football
After I updated the "worst things to buy at Daiso" article last week, we've been receiving tons of fiery comments from die-hard fans, all ready to smite me for daring to compare Daiso rubber bands with that of chicken rice packets. What might have gotten lost in the article is that I'm actually just as crazy about Daiso as everyone is - perhaps even more so. My relationship with Daiso goes back to when there was just one outlet at IMM. That's where I hung out during six-hour breaks between lectures in university, which is why I had no friends or money. After buying my first home last year, my first stop was not to inform my family but to go straight to Daiso to procure cheap Japanese ceramics. Also, I have heard the words "I really regret coming with you to Daiso" more than once. OK, enough pathetic stories from my life - let's talk about what's definitely worth your $2 at Daiso instead! 1. EVERY ORGANISER UNDER THE SUN Let's start with the obvious. For me, Daiso has completely killed … [Read more...] about 8 most value-for-money items at Daiso Singapore: 2019 edition
MANILA, Philippines — Most can attest to moms being the nurturers of families, and providers of affection, love and care. But through the years, they continue to reinvent themselves — breaking stereotypes in society, taking on multifaceted roles, and showing strength amid tenderness. So when it comes to making and saving money, moms surely can. In celebration of Mother’s Day, meet two moms who have bravely stepped up, brought their A-games, and raised their children while providing for their families. Mommy Chrys: The wise spender Chrys learned to be a wise spender by minimizing spending in small things that add up. Photo Courtesy of Chrys Esguerra del Monte Imagine separating from your husband at the height of the Asian Financial Crisis — a period that gripped most of East and Southeast Asia in the late 90s — with two very young daughters to raise alone. Sounds difficult? Maria Chrystia Esguerra del Monte, now 50, went through all these … [Read more...] about When it comes to saving, managing and growing money, moms can!
First of all, we want to improve the mass transport system in Cebu. We are also pushing for the LRT to be built, that is one thing that can help us with our traffic. Waste to energy (facility), renewable energy, those are the things we want for Cebu. We want to bring water to the mountain barangays. These are the things that require immediate action. I think we also need to go into the direction where Singapore has gone, which is water recycling. They recycle their water, wherein their waste water becomes so clean that they can drink it. Big dreams? Not really, if you ask Richard Edison Uy Yap who is running for congressman in Cebu City North District against a political veteran. “So far,” Richard admitted in an interview for Cebu Vote, the special election coverage of The Freeman, The Philippine STAR’s Cebu-based sister publication, “it has been going very well, I think, we’ve had a lot of resistance in the beginning. But I think people are now warming up … [Read more...] about What Richard Yap dreams for Cebu
