I’m a Davaoeña who loves exploring my beautiful country, Pilipinas.  And because I work online where I manage Virtual Assistants, I get the liberty to mix business and leisure whenever I want to. Being an online entrepreneur gives me the flexibility to work virtually anywhere as I move around — in airports, at the beach, in hotels, in my favorite coffee shops and restaurants, at the malls.

I have this insatiable thirst for trying out new things and learning new skills. I can easily mingle with new people in new places.

One survival tip I wanna share especially when travelling alone in a new place is to make friends with the local drivers.  In this country, drivers have quite a bad reputation for ripping off tourists. But from experience, I feel that if you befriend them and genuinely show them respect, they will make sure to take good care of you and will not rip you off whether you’re a foreign or local tourist. I still believe in the good side of people. Works for me all the time! :)

Let’s explore the Philippines!

    please help me I don’t know how to pay my plane ticket using my BPI express Teller debit account

    • If you see an option to pay your plane ticket through PayPal, click it. Make sure you have funds on your attached bank account. I buy plane tickets online but I haven’t seen any PayPal option on Cebu Pacific and Air Asia websites so I choose either credit card or through other available Bayad Centers showing on their websites upon checkout. Hope this helps.
