Hi, I am a proud owner of a condo unit. I bought my first condo unit last Y2012 from SMDC – Green Residences. It’s the condo beside DLSU-Manila’s Andrew Bldg.

You believe that for as long as you earn cash, you’re good. 4 – You work best when working on your own. No matter what your reason is, the point is it’s possible and you can do it! Yes, let me repeat it: you can earn extra cash while you’re at home. How? Read along…  Continue reading

I hope the list below will help you decide immediately too, the moment you see that airfare seat sale on your news feed. YES TO TRAVEL (If you’re ready)!  Continue reading
