Rock Bands and Artists That Rock About Personal Finance

I have been a musician for more than 2 decades already. Gosh, it’s revealing my age! I’m already 25! 😉

As I have been saying to my fellow financial literacy advocates, we can not stay educators of the rest of the Philippine nation with our “boring” methods of teaching if we really want to reach out to every Filipino. We need to be more creative and more entertaining in our approach so that we can be heard and craved by people to be heard again.

That is why in our upcoming Angat Pilipinas Financial Literacy Awards 2015, we’re bringing in our celebrity volunteers like Jojo Alejar, Joyce Burton-Titular, Jao Mapa (why do their names all start in letter “J”???), Miriam Quiambao, etc. as we believe that with their following and showbiz influence, they can be great ambassadors of financial literacy.

The Adventures of Pepot Kuripot and Dora Gastadora

I have always been a big fan of our good friend Pol Medina, Jr. and his “baby” Polgas, the anthrophomorphic dog of the Sungcal family of the very popular comic strip Pugad Baboy.

Aside from finding out if my articles submitted to Youngblood were already published, reading the weekly Pugad Baboy was one of my main reasons for having the Philippine Daily Inquirer newspaper every Sunday back in the 90’s. I would cut out the comic strips from Inquirer and paste them on an old and unused photo album as one of my favorite weekend hobbies.

Then Pol Medina, Jr. launched his “very best of Pugad Baboy” and the very first compilation book of his comic strips published on Inquirer.  I had to save money just so I could buy Pol’s book by then.

Good thing one of my cousins is a big fan of Pugad Baboy as well and I didn’t have to buy the succeeding editions of Pugad Baboy collections. Nanghihiram na lang ako. 😛 Continue reading The Adventures of Pepot Kuripot and Dora Gastadora

On Gilas, Laban and Puso In the Game of Life

The Gilas Fever is not yet over. In fact, it’s just started. After the Cinderella run in the elimination round of the FIBA Worlds, the Philippine team still emerged as champions in the hearts of both the Filipinos and foreign fans. Yes, they lost 4 times and won only once. But in all those almost-won-close-games, what really prevailed was the big heart or “puso” that has really earned the admiration and respect of all.

Here’s a very heart-warming blog from a friend who was very well known for giving enlightening and non-biased advise to her listeners and followers. Being the other half of the very popular and sorely missed puso-filled Paul and Cherry of Lite Rock Favorites of the Week (LRFW) of the defunct radio station, 96.3 WRocK, Cherry once again shares her wisdom and personal views about Gilas and how this can relate to our everyday lives.

Sit back, read, and be inspired! Puso! :) Continue reading On Gilas, Laban and Puso In the Game of Life

The Entrepreneur and Hero: Tado

“Madaming musikero at artista ang nagugutom dahil walang pang-kain.” Ito ang isang nakakapuwing at nakakawindang na reply ni Tado sa akin nung minsang naka-chat ko sya tungkol sa financial literacy ng mga musikero at creative artists.

He was supposed to be part of our second session of Personal Finance Management for Artists and Musicians in partnership with Skarlet Brown’s Heart of Music (HOM) Foundation slated in the next couple of months. He would have joined and gave a pep talk about starting a business based on core gifts and God-given talents had the January schedule pushed through. But my family and I all got sick because of the abrupt weather shifts last month and I had to cancel all my scheduled activities and meetings.

Arvin “Tado” Jimenez and I are both part of Rock Ed Philippines, a volunteer group working to provide venues and events for alternative education. It is this organization that actually inspired me to start a financial literacy movement for the youth, the OFW’s, artists, and musicians called Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy.

The Most Hilarious Stock Market Terms (And Everything Else)

If you have noticed, I have not been writing more often in the past few weeks. I just kept on sharing old articles in social sites just to keep the financial literacy awareness going.

It’s because I have been involved in more financial literacy projects in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, UAE (Dubai), Singapore, and elsewhere around the world through the help of so many kababayans who are more than willing to volunteer in educating our fellowmen on how to achieve financial independence.

But before I mention a couple of those projects, here’s a dose of stock market investment jokes to perk up your middle of the week as an investor. This has been circulating around the internet community for sometime but it feels great (and crazy) sharing it to my readers. 😀 Continue reading The Most Hilarious Stock Market Terms (And Everything Else)

Ending A Business Emotionally – Who Misses NU107?

Immense sadness engulfed the Pinoy rock crowd along Garnet and Emerald Streets in Ortigas when NU107 played the Eraserheads’ “Ang Huling El Bimbo” as its final song on air and signed off for the last time a little past midnight on November 8, 2010.  Rock musicians and enthusiasts were orphaned and left without any alternative rock station to listen to and to fill in the void.

Close to 3 years since the station’s demise, the same old rockers and fans still long for the pleasurable noise and rhythm of NU107. Some Facebook group members even speculate a big comeback in November this year. (Rumor-mongering/publicity is sometimes good for a business’ health. :P)

All of us 90’s buffs will never forget the institutional programs of In The Raw, Crossroads, Against The Flow, The Midnight Countdown, Not Radio, Jake/Zach & Joey in the Morning, and the rest of the other successful shows including Rock Ed Radio, University Rock, unTV‘s Strangebrew that ran almost all throughout the whole new millennium.
