Sun Life Financial: Iloilo How To #LiveBrighter 2017

Sun Life Financial #LiveBrighter Featured Image

Last Saturday, October 14, Sun Life Financial-Philippines held its #LiveBrighter Forum at Seda Atria, Mandurriao, Iloilo City to share their passion and mission on helping Filipinos become financially independent. The event is saturated with financial literacy and freedom. Their advocacy is not just to sell policies but definitely to help every Filipino in managing financial resources and planning out investments suitable to one’s personal lifestyle.

Sun Life Financial in Four (4) Sentences

Sun Life Financial already had more than a century. In 1895, the company introduced life insurance in the Philippines. They survived two world wars and countless economic crises proving their resilience and prudence in the industry. This makes the Sun Life Financial-Philippines (SLFP) not only the first but also the longest-standing life insurance company in the country.

Sun Life #LiveBrighter: Savings does not entail a Sacrifice but rather a Management

This is the first arrow that hit me during the forum. Part of this advocacy is to educate people about money matters and eradicate misconception on saving. Most Filipino when asked about their opinion in savings, their initial reaction is that they will have to give up some parts of their motivation in life.

Sun Life Live Brighter Forum

But as discussed by Sun Life Regional Sales Manager and forum speaker, Valerie Lagarde, you don’t have to sacrifice what motivates you like eating good food, traveling to places, buying useful stuff. You just have to manage them all especially your finances. Plan out ahead. Weigh everything on where to invest. Prioritize what is essential but take note what is on your leisure list. You can enjoy and save at once.

Sun Life #LiveBrighter: Get in the business of helping people

The next arrow that hit my senses is helping people can be a business. The difference with just a business that only earns to a business that helps individuals to better their lives is passion. This is what embodies Churchill Bejemino, a Sun Life Advisor with a transformed life. His passion is to really help people understand the value of a good investment, financial planning, and management. He advocates especially to millennials the value of investing even just a little amount for the future. Let’s not be driven only by what the present shows us. But let’s manage our present to achieve what the brighter future is showing us.

Sun Life #LiveBrighter: Bank Versus Insurance for Millennials

When asked about millennials’ take on where to put their money (bank or insurance), a simple yet very substantiated answer struck me. This is the last arrow that hit my mind. Know the different types of investment and determine the purpose of each, said Mike Gustillo. Basically, between the two, bank and insurance, the difference is the length of terms. Bank can be part of your short-term investment suitable for your daily, weekly or monthly needs because you can easily access the amount. However, if you are looking into long-term investment, you can choose insurance plan which will yield larger amount couple of years from now.

Also, during the forum, they gave everyone a chance to become their family as Sun Life Advisor. Here are quick information on this.

In the end, what matters is the length of support Sun Life can give us being a financial advisor. I want to end this with a snippet of a successful Sun Lifer. #LiveBrighter in your future!

Chinese Cuisine at Kusina Tsina

Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine Asian Food

The “New Look” – “Reloaded” – Kusina Tsina is back on its feet; tastier, better, and more Chinese food to offer. Being one of the restaurants in Iloilo serving Chinese cuisine for almost a decade, they have some bumps along their way. But nonetheless, they kept their ground. Eugene Chua, the co-owner of the resto, once said that the relaunching is to prove that they are really serious about improving the service –  more than just the new color theme, RED. He is back to make Kusina Tsina great again.

Hey Sugar Waxing Salon – Post Travel Care for Facial Hair

Well, after having some relaxing moments from a foot spa, let me take you to a totally new experience (at least for me) on a waxing salon. Most of the time, after traveling or fulfilling some duties here and there, I notice the effect of energy-draining errands on my face. My eyes are drooping and my skin feels like I went to war (really!). Realizing this, I will look closer and will see those stubborn facial hairs on my face especially on the lip area.

So I think, at the end of some tiring day, I will get a professional service to deal with my facial hairs. Finally, for the first time, I tried “lip threading” from an established waxing salon in the country – Hey Sugar Waxing Salon. Want to see how it went?
