Does Sale Actually Exists or it is just an Attractive Word?

Most people are in a rush to look for the best items whenever there is a notice of sale on the big malls here in the country. The scene inside these malls is almost becoming similar to the festivals or concert event.s There are of course attractive ads and eye-catching signs when you get into the mall and then shop. There is as well a mascot parade where everybody especially kids happen to have a chance of seeing these food characters up close and personal. The place is an amazing day. Everyone is not only excited; they are putting away their money since it is sale.

It could have been very difficult to find out if most of these people going for a sale shopping really have the savings to spend when this periodic event comes into the spotlight. Or are they just there for a visit and do window shopping to see if they can get the cheapest price whenever there is an opportunity? No one knows. This is a busy day. Sales guys are paid to entertain customers. Customers are entitled to claim the discounts.

But is there really a discount? What does 50% OFF really means? What does the word “Sale” means? If you would just scrutinize the web, you would find it hard to get a simpler and clearer answer. Most are technical definitions except from the definition of the “Bargain Sale” which states that it is a way of transferring ownership of an asset for less than the market value or simply a sale at less than the full market value of the property. Stop for a while. Think it over.

If an item is sold at 50% OFF at an equivalent cost of 100 pesos, then its full market value is 200 pesos. Being a consumer, the seller would not tell you how much is the real market value. What you will see on the price tags are prices marked with an “X” and a new price if not in bold characters but are then printed on attractive colors of paper. Financially wise, you were only given a discount but the seller still got the profit out of the items being sold.

The quality or freshness of the items being sold is another different thing to discuss. Is the fashion still in?

The more items you buy with a sale price tag, the more discounts you can get. But it is still not the ultimate reason to go to the store and shop. The challenge here is to spend your money wisely and do not just be attracted by a SALE. Consider still your other expenses on the next coming days after availing the SALE discounts.

Beautiful Life in the Philippines in These Times of Pandemic

Life is beautiful if you will find ways to make it beautiful... This is what I learned from life experiences here in the planet. As the line from the poem Invictus states: I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. We are responsible for our happiness, at least in a world where everyone has freedom. Now, as to what happiness would mean to you, it something you must know. But defining happiness should not be complicated. Perhaps, this blog post can explain...  Cows Freely Eating Grasses in a Green Field A Lady Witnessing the Rising of the Sun Morning Sun as it Climbs Up to Start the Day We all experienced the horrible impact of pandemic over the past two years, and yet we still feel the difficulties and challenges up to this very moment coping up with the so-called "new normal". Maybe its already too much to say what this COVID-19 virus bring us...that's enough! An inspiration may cure our broken hearts and souls. This is the best way to calm us down, make us

"Business as Usual" as the Filipinos Define It (Vulcanizing Shop, Sari-Sari Store, Bakery) – Part 1

I asked the shop owner about these old unused tires on what are they doing with it. The Vulcanizing shop owners says, “Oh, someone will pick up those tires and pay us 5 or 10 pesos each. Sometimes they just take it for free”. Vulcanizing Shop - A Classic Example of Filipino Business You’ve most probably seen and been into a local, typical vulcanizing shop like this one in the photo. The business concept is very simple. Here’s a customer with his flat or deflated tire and the vulcanizing boy will repair it using a rubber compound patch, a heating tool, and an air pump. If it’s a regular car or van tire, repairing one may only take 10 minutes the cost of which is around 30 to 60 pesos. If it’s a tire from a truck or bus, it could be around 30 minutes and the repair would cost the vehicle owner around 100 to 150 pesos. Here’s the thing. A shop like this one could potentially earn a revenue of 1000 up to 2000 per day just by repairing a flat tire. Why? Well, with thousands of

“I Love Baguio City” - My Travel Story in the Summer Capital of the Philippines

The Strawberry Farm, Burnham Park, Mines View Park, the Mansion, Wright Park, Lourdes Grotto, and Session Road; these are among of the popular landmarks in the more commonly known “Summer Capital of the Philippines” – Baguio City. Why so? Well, the temperature here seldom exceeds 26 degree centigrade. During the cold season of December to February, the temperature falls down to even below 10 degree centigrade. The record low temperature was 6.3 degree and that was on January 18, 1961. How to Travel to Baguio City? Going to this cold city in the mountainous province of Benguet, Philippines is a six to seven hours travel by passenger utility bus from Manila. Starting from EDSA, traversing the NLEX, entering SCTEX, exiting the province of Tarlac and going through the neighbouring provinces of Pangasinan and La Union, and then exploring the zigzag road of either the Marcos Highway, the Kennon Road or the Naguilian Road, the coldest place in the Philippines will be reached. Baguio is a
