In an era of instant gratification, when we have access to everything fast—food, entertainment, travel, information, and comfort, it’s so easy to give in to temptation and spend money freely and extravagantly more than we earn them if we don’t have self-control.
We’ve come to rely on tech so much, but I’m still scared of hacks and bugs for money-related issues like online banking and money transfers. My accounts have not been compromised yet, but there’s always a first for everything, right?
Lately, I’ve been using GCash for services like e-payments and taking care of my bills. So imagine my anxiety in case my account gets hacked. The platform has launched Customer Protect, a program that assures compensation for unauthorized financial transactions.
As the Philippines continues to grow into a viable gaming and eSports market, Taiwan’s ICT industry further strengthens its support for local eSports athletes and enthusiasts by introducing its most advanced technologies and powerful devices to the country.
The 2019 Taiwan Excellence eSports Cup will be held October 4-6, 2019, at the SM City North EDSA The Block Atrium in Quezon City.

Last year, the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) declared that 77% of Filipinos do not have bank accounts. While it is alarming, the central bank announced that more have opened a savings account this year. The growth was attributed to the increase of banking offices nationwide and the implementation of a “no-frills” account that can be opened even without standard identification documents.
I find it so amazing that online shopping platforms have turned random days into spending extravaganzas. There’s September 9 (9.9), October 10 (10.10), November 11 (11.11), and December 12 (12.12). On those days, and the days leading up to it, we list down the things we need and want and hope for big discounts. Yes, we get to save money when we shop on platforms like Lazada, Booking.com, Zalora, and more. But did you know that you can get cashbacks on top of these discounts? You can with Shopback.
Joyce Pring is one of those people doing a lot of things. She’s a radio DJ and an events host, and she has time to record a podcast, make music, travel, and maintain a healthy love life. People always say that we all have the same number of hours as Beyonce, but I’ve never subscribed to the idea since the singer has a team of assistants who make sure everything is running smoothly. Joyce, on the other hand, seems to be doing everything on her own, proving that you can do a lot in 24 hours.
I love Intramuros. The walled city in Manila is rich in history that stepping into its gates is like going back in time. The cobblestone streets, the heritage buildings, and the museums are a reminder of Manila’s storied past and, with the guidance of newly-minted mayor Isko Moreno, its future. One of the new additions to the area is Museo de Intramuros, a museum that houses religious artifacts found in churches near and around the district.
The museum opened early this year, in time for the 40th anniversary of the Intramuros Administration. The government agency is tasked with the orderly restoration, management, development, and promotion of Intramuros as a national heritage. To make its celebration more special, LG donated six units of the TVs to the museum, in order to pair the walled city’s rich and colorful history together with tomorrow’s technology.
On July 20, 1969, the world watched as American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin traveled to space and took the first steps on the moon.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Samsung launched “Making History,” a QLED 8K TV commercial and a multi-platform campaign with CNN Films. Samsung makes TV history once again by pushing the boundaries of technology with QLED 8K, now allowing consumers to watch video content in the highest resolution this category has ever seen.
