PUPCET 2014: January 25, 2014

Tomorrow, January 25, 2014 is the first examination day for students hoping to become Isko or Iska of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. I was once a Iskolar ng Bayan, and I hope that my son gets to be one as well.  So tomorrow, he will be one of the thousands who will take the entrance test and hopefully, and God-willing pass it.  Here are just some important reminders that I would like to share, which is part of the test permit that you will have to bring with you tomorrow.  And may I just say, parents are not allowed inside the campus! You are a big girl/boy now, you can do it on your own! And, classes has been suspended at PUP on Saturday to make way for the test.

Important Reminders:
Going to PUP Sta Mesa campys via public and private vehicle:

Going to PUP Sta. Mesa Campus via LRT Line 3:

So good luck to all examinees and  may the odds be ever in your favor!

The Feast of the Sto. Nino

Yesterday was the Feast of the Sto Nino and the same with many places in the country, there was a procession in our barangay after the mass.  The procession was attended with people from all ages, each caryying his or her Sto Nino, and dancing to the fun beat of the drum.  The playful atmosphere is a reminder for us to remain childlike, in faith and in life, to the child Jesus.  Pit Senor! Viva Sto Nino!

Saving Money

I am the girl with no savings, and I am not proud of it.  For this year, I vow to save some emergency money, even just a small one.  I know that there are a lot of ways to save and I list some of these here:

  1. Only buy something if it is absolutely necessary. But if it is something that you want, try to wait a few weeks and if you still want it, then that is the only time to buy it.  Then look for deals such as TakeCoupons so that you can save even more. 
  2. If you need to travel, plan ahead and book during airline travel fairs and seat sale and buy only once you are sure of your travel dates to avoid paying cancellation or booking fee.
  3. Always check for deals at Takecoupons.net for your everyday use. There is always one for everyone, believe me! Check it out at http://takecoupons.net 
  4. There are lots and lots of ways to save, and just remember, buy only what you need even if other items are on sale. You will save a lot of money if you always remember that.
I know these things and I will take this to heart this year so that I will have that emergency fund before the end of the year!
