WINTER IN TAIPEI

I never knew how cold winter was until my experience in Taiwan. The temperature was very low and we were literally freezing. No snow but extremely cold! Wearing three clothes altogether was not enough and I wasn't prepared for it.



Taipei was a very nice place and a totally different environment. The difficult thing though was that the locals hardly speak English and we had difficult time conversing with them.

And oh, it was Chinese New Year when we went there! They had a week-long celebration and majority of their stores were closed for almost a week. 0_0

Here are random photos of our activities and the places we visited:

Day 1
TAOYUAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT


Day 2
CHIANG KAI-SHEK MEMORIAL HALL, TAIPEI BOTANICAL GARDEN, LONGSHAN TEMPLE 




Day 3
TAIPEI ZOO, MAOKONG GONDOLA
This zoo is very vast! Took us one day to stroll around the place. Actually, we weren't able to visit all the animals. hehe.. =D

Day 4
NATIONAL PALACE MUSEUM, SHILIN OFFICIAL RESIDENCE, TAIPEI 101

Taipei 101 is one of the tallest buildings in the world. Good thing we found a good spot to take picture with this skyscraper.

Day 5
TAIPEI EXPO PARK, BOSSA NOVA CAFE


I loved my stay in Taipei. Had so much fun! It was a well-spent vacation out of the country! :-P

LEARNING ABOUT MUTUAL FUNDS

One of the things that I love to do is attending financial management seminars. Now I'm sharing with you one of my favorites.. =) Topic: MUTUAL FUNDS!

Here are some of the things that I learned during the mutual fund training..

Importance of investing:
1) to beat inflation
2) to reach your financial goals

Features of a Mutual Fund: diversification, affordability, tax exemption, professional fund management, convenience, liquidity and safety!

Here are the three types of Mutual Funds:
1) Bond Fund (for low risk profile with recommended length of stay of 1 to 2 years)
2) Stock Fund (for aggressive profile, more than 5 years recommended length of stay)
3) Balanced Fund (moderate risk profile with recommended length of stay of 3 to 5 years)

You may choose what type of MF to invest depending on your risk appetite. As for me, I go for the Stock Fund. Just shows how aggressive I am in investing. Yay! =D

During training:

(MF training by Rampver Strategic Advisors)

There are different mutual fund companies in the Philippines. Three of my favorites are FAMI, Philequity and PAMI. These are all good performing. =)

One thing to consider when investing is that you have to give it time to grow. Invest wisely. Invest in the right facility.

"To maximize the potential return of your investment, you need to let it grow over time." -RSA

THE BDJ RENDEZVOUS: FEARS TO FIERCE

My favorite planner just had another rendezvous! It was my first time to attend and I had fun! =) Just felt so girly.. ;)

I went there with my best friend and we met other fierce fashionista girls. Learned about fashion, travel, make-up and health. I was actually late due to rain and traffic. = ( I felt bad but at least I was able to attend more than half of the event. It was hosted by Mellow 94.7 DJ, Tracy Abad.. She was really cool and nice. Some bloggers invited to talk during the event were Prime Sarmiento, Alex Lapa and Erica Paredes.

Some snapshots:




  


Here are some of the freebies I got from Kolours and Skin White. Yey!
