Tickle Me Mondays: Comic Strip #6

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is having a great Monday morning. As usual, Baby Zeeka is up to her usual tricks and cuteness. To start the week right, here is my comic strip for you today.

tickle me mondays 6

Do you have babies that don’t like wearing dresses? haha! Zeeka literally becomes “friskier” if she wears frilly and fluffy dresses. We just can’t help it though. Ej and I think she looks so cute in baby dresses.

We usually get her clothes from Mothercare and online stores. There are a lot of online shops started by small business owners.

Feel free to contribute your own funny baby photos and use #tickleMEMondays

We’d love to see funny pictures of you and your baby!

Baby OOTD: Yellow Belle

I love the color yellow on Zeeka. It makes her look pretty! Although, my hubby says anything looks good on our baby girl. He is her number 1 fan. Hmmm, I think we’re tied on that spot.

Last week, Baby Zeeka had a shoot for Mothercare and these were two of the clothes that she loved the most. One was actually bought by moi even before the shoot. The hair accessory for this shoot was ordered from Lil Miss Belle Hair Accessories.

Here’s is Baby Fashionista’s Baby OOTD!

Achieve Financial Freedom: Start Now!

All of us want to stay at home and live life by using just passive income. I remember a friend told me that she had a dream of being a housewife — to wake up early each day to have breakfast with her “amigas” and cross stitch. After lunch, shopping in the mall would follow and in the afternoon, they would have afternoon tea. Ladies, who among us do not want to have this kind of life? I know I want to be a ‘donya’ housewife eventually. But how do we get there? I just realized that we have to start somewhere and we have to start now! We need to achieve financial freedom and FAST!

These first 6 months have really been good for us, in terms of fixing our finances. This was so because we got to listen and follow the advice of Fitz Villafuerte. Fitz Villafuerte is a civil engineer who decided to quit the corporate world in 2003 to pursue entrepreneurship. His blog, entitled, Ready To Be Rich, has already received several recognition including the Best Business and Finance Blog at the Philippine Blog Awards for two years in a row. Moreover, an international finance publication, Wise Bread, has likewise ranked his website as among the Top 100 Personal Finance blogs in the world. Fitz has also been recognized by Moneysense Magazine as among the top 12 most influential people in Personal Finance in the Philippines.

Achieve Financial Freedom: Personal Finance 101 Workshop

If you are thinking about achieving financial freedom at the soonest possible time, now is the time to make the right plan. I would like to recommend attending the Ready to Be Rich: Jumpstart your Wealth Workshop. Full disclosure: This is a workshop made possible by Manila Workshops, but the thing is, even if we didn’t organized this, I would still recommend this workshop.

In this workshop, you will get to answer the questions:
1. Who is the best financial adviser for me?
2. What are the three things I need to become rich?
3. What are the ten financial stages of life, and where am I now?
4. What is the most effective way to eliminate credit card debts?
5. How much do I exactly need for my emergency fund?
6. How much life insurance coverage do I really need?
7. How do I create multiple sources of income?
8. How do I know the amount of risk I can afford when investing?
9. How do I build, diversify and manage my own investment portfolio?
10. How much money do I exactly need to retire?

The ones that I highlighted are really the things I want to know more about and what I normally hear from family and friends. How about you? What are the things that you would like to know more about? Feel free to comment below.

In this workshop, you will be able to do hands-on and interactive activities, such as creating expense and income statements, preparing a zero-based budget system, debt management strategies, practical investment portfolio management and many others. This will be one of the best personal finance 101 workshops that you will ever attend because of all the practical tips that you will get.

The workshop will be on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The venue will be at Studio SnR, 3rd Floor, Millenium Place, Meralco Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
