It’s been a challenge encouraging my daughter to exercise and be active. Gadgets like Ipads and switches make it extra difficult to drag them to get up and move. So I’ve been researching for indoor activities and i’ve been looking for a fitness program for kids, and I came across this BFIT Active Kids program by Bert Lozada Swim School, and it’s not about swimming.

I recently just learned how to buy Crypto Currencies on Binance (All thanks to my friend and co-founder, Kevin). I never really thought of purchasing digital coins before, because I had to pay my loans and we had a lot of things going on. Now that I have paid all of my credit card debt and I know that I can pay it off fully every due date, I had a little bit of cash to test the waters and buy coins.
For all beginners reading this, it fine if you want to test is out and buy crypt currencies with only $50 (around Php 2500). From my research, what investors would advice beginners is to test the waters first using up to $250 dollars first. Figure your way out first and learn how to use an exchange like Binance.
Since this is a post on how to start with Binance, let’s get started.
How to buy crypto currencies on Binance
Step 1: Sign up here This link will lead you to Binance. Have the following by your side when you sign up: Passport, Proof of billing like utility bills with your name and address and download already the Google Authenticator App from the App Store or Google Playstore. So be ready with these things as you will need to have yourself verified and this is the first step on how to buy crypto currencies.
Step 2 (Feel free to skip this if you wish): Once you are verified. Go to the TASK CENTER. From what I know you will see this. One of the tasks that you haven’t complete yet (of course) is to “Buy at least $50 worth of crypto” and you will get a beginners pack. The beginners pack is actually 1000 BUSD which is almost or most likely equivalent to 1000 US Dollars that you will need to keep for 7 days in Binance Earn (sort of like the savings account of Binance). You can’t withdraw or transfer your Trial Fund but you’ll enjoy the annualized interest generated by the subscribed Savings product with the Trial Fund as the initial capital. Basically, what this task shows you is that Binance has other features like this. I bought USDT since I thought initially that you can transfer it and use it to buy coins. I suggest that you try it out with BTC or Bitcoin instead.
Before we proceed on the steps on how to buy crypto currencies, let’s go through some definition of terms first. Bitcoin or BTC was the original crypt currency so you’ll see a lot of reference to it. Account balances are show in BTC, too. The other coins in the market such as Ethereum or ETH, Binance or BNB, DOGE or SHIBA INU or SHIB (or whatever coins you may have heard of) are called ALT coins. Now there are also STABLE coins like USDT or USD Tether and BUSD which are close to the amount of the dollar.
What I do is that I buy stable coins first then convert it to the coins that I’d like to buy when I want to or when it hits a certain price.
STEP 3: To buy STABLE COINS (what I use is USDT), just click on Buy Crypto and you can use any of these. I use Credit and Debit Card. P2P trading is where you buy from another person.
For P2P, this is how the screen will look like. Set the currency to PHP and choose how you want to pay the other person for buying your stable coin.
Some reminders, which I learned from Ken Ken, one of my friend who is into Crypto Currency trading, you have to check on the number of orders and the percentage completion of the orders. The higher the number of orders and rate of completion, the better it is to deal with that person.
Step 4: Once you have your stable coin in your Binance account, it’s time to purchase a currency. Before purchasing though, please do your own research. You can check out https://coinmarketcap.com/ I’m not here to tell you what to purchase, but please do read up before buying. Also, only use funds that you are willing to lose. Truth be told, I’m just experimenting right now and in the same stage as you, so I am not in the position to give advice.
So let’s proceed on how to buy coins on Binance. There are multiple ways to purchase a coin.
A. Go to Wallet then click on Fiat and Spot. It will take you to this page. You can either click on Buy or Trade your USDT for BTC.
if you chose Buy, it will take you to this page where you will can directly purchase the currency that you like.
So when you click on trade, (in this example, I want to buy BTC/USDT meaning I will trade my USDT for BTC), it will show me this page.
It looks complicated but just read up more on trading. I will try to invite a person to interview to talk about crypto currency trading soon on my Youtube channel. If you know people, please recommend them to me too! 🙂
Anyway, scroll down to the fields below.
For this guide for Beginners, I’ll talk about Market and Limit. Basically, when you click on Market, you buy (or sell) based on the current market rate. You will just need to place the amount of USDT that you are willing to spend, just like this.
Then just click on Buy BTC and voila! You will have that crypto in your Binance Wallet.
Now for limit, if you have an idea of at what rate would you like to buy (or sell) this currency, place the rate in the Price field and then move the line to how much of your USDT are you willing to spend when the price reaches your indicated price.
Step 5: To check if it’s in your wallet, just click on this – Wallet >> Fiat and Spot or click on Overview.
Please check that you are in Binance.com since there are some phishing sites that replicate Binance.
If you have any questions, feel free to comment below so that I can help you out or I can get someone to help you out! haha! As you know, I’m just still starting like you.
Why did I start purchasing Crypto?
I just thing that the time will come when most of us will be using this as currency. Right now, I don’t really see myself day trading this, because I know that I am more likely to hold on to these currencies and see what will happen. Plus, I know that I have a lot to learn still. So… let’s learn together. I wanted to start with the topic how to buy crypto currencies, but I promise to share new learnings with you.
I’m supporting the team behind the popular children’s book “Alpabeto ng Kalikasan”. Dustin Ancheta, Jay Javier and Anya Santos-Uy have launched Kalikasan Kits in a special donation drive to benefit underprivileged communities across Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. In collaboration with the non-profit, literacy movement, RecoveREADS, “Alpabeto ng Kalikasan” aims to distribute 300 kits. The special donation drive is ongoing until June 5th, World Environment Day. A Php 500 donation will help send one Kalikasan Kit to a needy child.
Each Kalikasan Kit costs Php 500 and includes:
• 1 copy of “Alpabeto ng Kalikasan” • 1 activity workbook • 1 box of crayons
According to author Anya Santos-Uy: “This pandemic has put a strain on our already less-than-ideal public education system. I thought about the children, whose families were greatly affected by the loss of income brought about by the lockdowns. If food was a challenge, what more educational materials? Feeding kids’ stomachs is just as important as feeding their minds.”
“Alpabeto ng Kalikasan” is a colorful one-of-a-kind alphabet book that features Phlippine flora and fauna from A to Z. The book was written by Anya Santos-Uy with illustrations by Jay Javier and Baybayin script by Dustin Ancheta and Alain Austria. The book is available through the website alpabetongkalikasan.com and Amazon.
For those who want to know what Alpabeto ng Kalikasan is, check out this video:
Hope you can support them by spreading the word about Kalikasan Kits! Purchase a Kalikasan Kit now and make a donation on the website www.alpabetongkalikasan.com
Are you looking for ways to improve your finances? If so, then it makes sense to treat your personal finances like you would a company cash account. You need to make sure that you are saving in the right areas and seizing different opportunities as they present themselves. Here are some of our key suggestions.
Think About Taxes Carefully
First, it’s worth thinking about how you can get more from your taxes at certain points throughout the year. If you take the right steps, then you’ll be able to guarantee that you do save money on your taxes. The key thing to look at here is tax deductions because this can save you a fortune on your final tax dues. It’s particularly important if you are running your own company. The right deductions could end up saving you an absolute fortune over an extended period.
You should also be looking at the right investment opportunities that are available on the market. If you research, you’ll find that there are a range of investment possibilities that might be worth considering. Something that you should pay particular focus to is cryptocurrency. You might think that crypto like bitcoin is beyond your price point and you are absolutely correct there. But, what you can do is look at the smaller Bitcoin that has a massive potential to go boom. Some of these are more volatile than others and tools such as Swyftx will provide you with the opportunity to explore this massive market.
Hire An Accountant Or Financial Planner
You could also think about hiring an accountant or a financial planner. To boost your personal profits, you can get great advice from an expert. An accountant could help you find money in your personal budget that you didn’t realize was there in the first place. Ultimately, this could allow you to make huge gains with your investment decisions. You’ll also have more money to spend on various aspects of your life. A financial planner can point you in the direction of the investment options that make the most sense for you and could help you earn an absolute fortune, even over a limited period.
Save Where Possible
Finally, you need to make sure that you are saving where possible. Ideally, you should aim to save money in a variety of areas of your life. There are lots of easy ways to save these days. One of the best is to make sure that you are going green. If you go green then you can cut your costs right back. For instance, even changing your water usage could cut more than 25% off your energy bill overall and put you in a far stronger position financially.
We hope this helps you understand some of the best ways that you can boost your personal profits and make more money in the long run. The benefit of doing this is that you will put yourself in a far stronger position for the future.
So yesterday, on Facebook and TikTok, I shared my breastfeeding must-have haul from Orange and Peach PH. I already started shopping and since it’s Lazada’s 5.5 Sale today, I thought it might be interesting for you, especially if you are expecting parents, to read this. So first off, before I give you a more in depth explanation about each product, let me share the short video of the things that I got from Orange and Peach PH for breastfeeding.
Orange and Peach PHImproved Natural Nipple Balm
When I gave birth to my first child, I knew that I was prepared to breastfeed. I attended classes and I read a lot about breastfeeding. But when the first few days came and I tried breastfeeding Zeeka, I had sore nipples! My nipples bled, so after four days, I had to call a lactation consultant to help me out. After she taught me, Zeeka latched on and sucked masterfully. But, I had to protect my nipples with balm or cream.
So I am already purchasing this early on. This particular Orange and Peach PH balm is made from Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s Lanolin-free and made from natural ingredients. It comes with a spatula so that you can hygienically apply it to your nipples after each feeding.
Orange and Peach PHMilk Saver Pump
I love this manual pump since it’s small and portable. I tried bring my electric pump into the hospital when I gave birth to Zeeka, but I wasn’t allowed. You can only bring manual pumps like these. So to use this Milk Saver Pump, here are the steps:
Place the breast pump directly over your breast and make sure that your nipple is comfortable inside the flange.
Squeeze the base of the pump 2-3x to create that suction effect.
Sit back, relax and watch the pump collect all your precious milk.
If no milk comes out after a couple of minutes (2 mins), release the pump, reposition and attach again. Make sure that there is no gap between the flange and your breast to ensure efficient suction.
This pump is BPA free and Phthalates free. It’s made out off 100% food Grade Silicone.
Personally, what I do is that I use it to pump on the other breast while my baby is latching on to the other breast. And I also use it in between feedings to make my body think that my baby needs more. I try to create more supply by increasing demand. Ain’t economics great?
Orange and Peach PHMilk Saver Breast Shells
I’ve heard that some moms didn’t really find use for this, but in my case, it was a life saver especially during the times when I had sore and cracked nipples. Since you know that you will be leaking milk, you usually place pads. During the time though that I had sore/cracked nipples, when my nipples would stick to the pads, it would hurt. I used this so that nothing touches my nipples since the plastic elevates and protects your nipples. Plus you get to collect breast milk.
I would also use it during feeding to catch the milk from the other breast. There are times, like early mornings, when I’m tired to pump the other side. I would just collect milk using this then have the baby latch on to that side once s/he is done with the first breast.
Orange and Peach PHBreastmilk Storage bags and Breastmilk Storage Bottles
We all know that breastmilk is liquid gold and we’ll do anything to store it safely. Seriously, the first time that I expressed milk and spilled some, I cried. So storing breastmilk safely is very important.
When I have extra milk to store, I place it inside bags and keep it frozen. Frozen breastmilk lasts 3-6 months. Then for the milk that I know that I would use in a few hours, I keep it refrigerated using the bottle. Refrigerated breastmilk last for 48 hours and previously frozen milk stored in the refrigerator will last 24 hours. Same (24 hours) with breastmilk that you transport via cooler. For freshly expressed milk kept at room temperature, it only lasts for 4 hours.
We were very particular with this so that baby doesn’t drink spoiled milk. We’ve noticed that the baby gets gassy, too.
Three people will win a 1K voucher for shopping at Lazada. All you need to do is to follow Orange and Peach PH accounts in Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. If you’re not present in one of these platforms, it’s okay. You can still join.
