The year-long wait is over. The puny holiday bonus may be a letdown but guess what...
Here comes the 13th month pay!
As we all know, this is not exactly a bonus. The 13th month pay was mandated by Presidential Decree No. 851, otherwise known as The 13th Month Pay Law of December 1975. All employees of covered employers are entitled to this benefit provided that they have worked at least one month during the year.
Remember when you had your first car? I’m sure you were thinking about the first things you could do with it before you even had it -- the places to drive to, who to take with you, who to show it off to, and how much your gas expenses will be. Aside from all that, you also thought about what accessories to pimp it with.
Even cheap stuff brings out the best in us on the road. When newly installed, these things made you want to drive your car even more. Here are the things that made it to our list:
For you to build a house, you need to have a good foundation. The foundation should be strong enough to bear the load if, for example, you want a 3-storey house or 4-storey house. Before construction, you should already have a clear idea of how the foundation should be built. You can’t build a 4-storey house with foundations designed for a bungalow. A slight tremor would set that house collapsing.
The concept of the financial foundation is similar to building any house. There should be ample foundation depending on how high you want to go. Listed down are the most important things anyone should have to start strong in the journey of financial independence.
Ready for a haunted road trip? Sure, you can do this anytime during the year but according to some legend, spirits are most powerful in November - and it’s almost Halloween! As you gather the courage to have fun, here are some of the most popular and accessible haunted sites you might want to drive to.
Drowsy driving is one of the many causes of road accidents in the Philippines. While it can be easily averted, it is still hard to identify if one is too tired to drive at the start of the trip. Because this is just as dangerous as drunk driving, we’ve listed down some tips to avoid road accidents caused by sleepiness on the wheel but before that, the National Sleep Foundation provided a list of signs that it’s time to pull over.
Stay alert, follow the speed limit, pay attention to traffic signs, follow the rules, watch out for blind curves, etc. are driving tips that we’ve always been hearing since the invention of the motor vehicle.
These are not tips I should be writing about because we already know these things and since we treat them as merely head knowledge, we tend to take them for granted. Thus, accidents still occur and are growing in numbers year after year. Hurray for more stats.
On the contrary, I know I should write about the safety tips above just to remind you of how important they are but we’re going to do things differently this time.
Accidents spell trouble. The word accident itself means ‘an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally.” What this list has now is how to intentionally get yourself into real trouble.
Traffic congestion is now beginning to be a major problem and can be pointed out as one of many economic destabilizers specifically in Metro Manila. This is simply due to a lack of coordination between people and traffic rules.
Here are a number of causes:
The Surge of New Cars that Suddenly Popped Up
This is currently the most obvious reason. A former president claimed this to be a sign of economic progress. I can surmise that the sudden boom of the Grab and Uber service are in no small part responsible (though I am definitely in favor of their existence). We also can’t discount the low down payment/monthly payments promo every car dealer offers.
Getting hot in the midst of a storm
For the past ten years, the Philippines have been persistently stricken by catastrophes. The worst was Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda). It was deemed the most intense tropical cyclone and the deadliest typhoon to hit the Philippines on record. You may have been wondering about the bakwit after years of struggling to survive. How do they recover?
Last year until recently, a series of earthquakes have been reported. If not through the daily news, then you have surely felt it too. Is it slowly crawling out to become something bigger? Only God knows and we can’t help but think ‘what if we were the ones in the shoes of the victims.’ Start praying and start preparing - but can we really prevent its life-changing effects?
