Heats School of Welding Technology

Philippines is now facing an increasing rate of unemployment everyday. It is a fact announced daily on TVs and printed media which is a result of Economic downturn worldwide. But despite the hardships, Filipinos’ character of patience and hardwork will always emerge because Pinoys are natural survivors. There maybe a decreasing demand on wirings, computers, electronic and other related industries but a number of identified skills are still in demand.

One of thriving opportunity for Filipinos abroad is the Welding Industry. The Demand for this specific skill is increasing recently. Surprisingly, this is not just a man’s job anymore as for the latest development, women are already starting to try this area.

The Philippine Government has encouraged Filipino entrepreneurs to open up welding training centers to cope up with the increasing demands for Filipino welders. In my area in particular, there are newly opened technical school offering welding related courses. Heats School of Welding Technology is one good example. Heats started to hold trainings in 2008 by renting private rooms. Most of the participants are now working abroad.

Engr. Pedro Jose Jr.

The good man behind this project is Engr. Pedro Jose Jr. He is a native of Kapanikian, Lapaz, Tarlac. He has been in the field of Welding, QA/QC and Inspection for the past 14 years in the Philippines, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Indonesia and Brunei.

His Noble Mission for the School is to produce World Class Pinoy Welders, Welding Inspectors & other skilled workers. To realize this mission, he turned his home into a Technical School to help not only his fellow Tarlaqueño but his fellow Pinoys from adjacent areas as well.

Heats School of Welding Technology is now in the process of TESDA Accreditation and according to TESDA personnel, their accreditation documents will be released this February 2009. HEATS’ building, classrooms, facilities (such as Welding booths, working table and grinding table), welding machines, tools and materials are now in place and ready.

Pictures below are the proof of Mr. Jose’s humble attempt to turn this project into reality.

Mount Pinatubo Trek

Due to overwhelming response of my readers to my Mt. Pinatubo Post, which also becomes my no. 1 post since I started blogging, we added another service in our homebase business. This is Tour Guiding Services

My hub and I has particular task in running the business. With IT related works, I am in-charge of the internet, design and documentations while hub is doing the field work. But when the need arises, I also assist hub with field work activities.

Recently, I have many inquiries in my inbox particularly Mount Pinatubo Trek. I used to have a computer shop at Capas Tarlac and Tarlac Municipal Tourism had been one of our clients. I designed and created the Identification cards for Mt. Pinatubo Tour guides and most of them are Aetas. I also designed banners, flyers and brochures.

Last week, 2 clients from the internet hired our service thru this blog, Greg and Wisnu. Greg arrived last week but he went to Puerto Galera first and he scheduled trekking on Saturday, Dec. 13. Wisnu Wijaya, an Indonesian based in Malaysia arrived last Dec. 9 at 5:30pm. Hub meet him at the airport. They arrived home at almost 10pm. Although we had an agreement that we will book him in a hotel but because we were so excited sharing each others’ experiences, he decided to stay with us. Our house suddenly turned into a transient home.

The next day hub included Wisnu in the group of trekkers bound to Mount. Pinatubo.

POST UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 14, 2012

WE ARE NOW ONE OF THE MOST TRUSTED TEAM IN THIS FIELD.

THANKS GOD FOR MY BLOG AND FOR THIS POST;)

Pinoy Entrepreneurs

Everyday we hear different stories about Economic problems. Oil price hikes, recession, depression, business foreclosure and now the flight of our fellow Pinoy OFWs coming home in batches because they lost their jobs due to economic turmoil.

The magnet of poverty line is getting stronger everyday pulling so many people down. Government is very diligent to sustain and increase the magnitude of the magnet energy reserve to further attract more people and so far, they are successful. And now they are keeping up with the latest trend in entertainment and fashion. They are on their feet practicing the latest step of Latin American dance of Cuban origin, Cha-Cha. Wow, this government just can’t get enough of us. They are like blood sucking creatures that will not stop until the last drop of our blood.

Thanks God, He give us beautiful minds to survive the cold. Despite the economic glitch, Pinoys are surviving within the underground economy wherein the circulating currency is by bulk of coins. The government, despite dancing to the tune of cha-cha is crippled in terms of providing employment and health care for the common “tao”. But my fellow Pinoys are innovative. They are embracing the beauty of Entrepreneurism. Despite the lack of capital, they are still coping up to run their business to support their daily needs. And I believe that these are the real entrepreneurs. The real survivors.

This is the clear picture of Pinoy Entrepreneurs and often times they are dislocated by dispersal because of “illegal operation” which according to the authority, they are hampering the traffic flow. During dispersal, their goods are sequestered by the police and because they have no money for fines, oftentimes, recovery of their products is impossible and of course their products would fall “in good hands”.

Online Earnings

I have many inquiries here about online earnings. I reviewed my posts and I noticed that I don’t really have detailed information about making money online aside from the post for oDesk. As promised to Chelle and my other readers who were asking me bout this topic.

Here is the common question I got from my readers:

  • Do you really earn from this affiliate and all this writing stuffs?
  • How much range of income do u get from this?
  • Is working online really true?
  • Are they not scams?
  • Can I see your proof of payment? You don’t have one in your blog…
  • Can you recommend some reliable site?
  • I am working at home, I hope you can share some link which can help me earn…

I assure you guys, earning online is real. I am earning decent money which keep me get going, in fact almost 50% of our income comes from my work online and 50% from my home based business. Of course these earnings doesn’t make me rich yet but it sustain our expenses, at least my phone bills, ISP, electric, water, mobile and other household bills and expenses are covered with my earnings. Although we still have to work hard because we have a big family. I have 4 kids, my eldest daughter is a junior high, 2 grade school, 1 niece in college and my youngest son. That makes us 7 members of the family including 2 dogs and 1 guinea pig.

Okay let me give you a detailed info about my earnings:

1. I am a verified oDesk provider

oDesk is a website both for hiring companies and job providers. As a company, you can hire freelancers or even companies who are providing this kind of service. It can be fixed job or hourly work. Payment is escrowed for hourly job, meaning the hiring company has to pay oDesk and after work completion, oDesk will pay the work provider. oDesk has tools to measure hourly work. A special program has to be installed in your PC. On the other hand, fixed job is different. The money is not escrowed and it depends on the hiring company and the work provider’s agreement how they will settle for the payment. It must me through oDesk or Paypal.

How to register:

  • You can click here
  • Fill up the necessary information. Make your profile 100% finished.
  • Create a good resume
  • Link your online Portfolio and other related online experience
  • Take and pass oDesk readiness Test (90% passing). Just review the TOS & FAQ.
  • Take English proficiency exam at oDesk and other website which offer this type of service. I took my English Proficiency exam here.
  • Take other tests at oDesk, this will add to your profile and a plus also
  • Link your blog. Companies are looking for real writers and your blog will be the most effective sample of your work.

After passing the exam, you will be notified that you’re already a verified oDesk provider. You are now ready to bid for jobs. Just click, find job tab and you will be presented with many job opportunities. Select a category at the left side bar. Choose jobs which suits your skills then click apply. The company usually asks you to send your CV and link to your portfolio.

Orie has some detailed suggestion in my comment box. Click here.

After your first project with oDesk, share your experience by posting it in your blog. Don’t forget to link that blog at oDesk by tagging it. You know why, they are looking for those posts and once you are selected, you will receive an oDesk Tshirt. I received mine last September and oDesk featured my blog on their September Newsletter.

2. I became a regular quiz writer of Devbook.com through oDesk.

I am writing quizzes for devbook using Redwarrior as my pen name. That is why I have a fun quiz page. These quizzes are posted at boredquiz.com. One of my quiz which is a naruto quiz is now an all-time top quiz taken by more than 150 thousand quiz takers. You can see the link here.

Devbook is paying me through oDesk and PayPal.

3. MyLot – I am also earning from this website. This is a social networking site which will pay you by posting and replying to discussions. If you spend long hours online, you can allocate sometime here and you will earn although don’t expect high earnings because it will be based on the quality content of your posts. Minimum pay out is $10 through PayPal. You will earn through referral and posting. Please click here to register under me.

 

4. Commission Junction – you can get advertisement offers through this site. They will pay you through check.

5. Yuwie.com – Just like adgitize, yuwie will also pay you through referrals, viewing and clicking ads

6. Helium – This will pay you everytime you create and post article on their site

7. PayPerPost – This is also a good site for paid blogging.

I also tried joining PTCs but the earnings is so slow and it eats my time so I won’t recommend it. Paid blogging and article writing is still the best way to earn online.

How to start:

  • Create an online profile
  • Create your portfolio. If you are a writer, post your samples. If you are a web designer, post the links to your finished works. If you’re a graphic designer, upload and post your sample designs, layout or Logos and it would be best if you post a link to your past projects.
  • Create a blog where you can show your writing expertise.
  • Post your ads. Remember every click on your ads will earn you a dollar.
  • Post your referral links. Note that every person who click your referral link and sign up under you will be added to your earnings. AW Surveys.com pays $1.25 for every referral. Just imagine, if 100 people signed up under you, that would be $125. But take note, those must be active members.

So guys that’s my tips on how to start working online. Regarding the proof of payment, ok, this is a screenshot of my PayPal and oDesk transactions. Just click the pics to enlarge images.

And another thing, you must sign up for a PayPal account, I have post here about that topic. Click here to read.

Remember also that you have to work on your traffic by joining social community sites like MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog, Facebook, Orkut, Friendster and MySpace. Check what will work for you. Add friends and visit and comment on their blogs and you will see that they will do the same. Add widgets and post your banners.

I hope this post will help you on how to start earning online. These earnings doesn’t make me rich yet but with strategies and the will to find other reliable earning opportunities, I know it will paid off. If you can recommend moneymaking sites, please post it. If you have questions, please feel free to post your comments.

Lastly, if you plan to register in these sites, please sign up under me by clicking the links. I will really appreciate it. Thank you very much! Good luck! 🙂

The Entrepreneur

OCTOBER 23, 2008

I received an email from WAYN regarding Global Entrepreneurship Week. In response to this letter, I wrote an article about Entrepreneurship in my own views.

THE ENTREPRENEUR

Money, Fame, Freedom and Power – 4 major aspirations of every breathing individual in this planet. Are you one of them? If we you will be honest and true to yourself, then the answer would simply be YES.

Who wouldn’t want money anyway? In fact money alone can give you freedom, fame and power. These needs and wants are traces and manifestations of entrepreneurial spirit in us. The drive to make it happen is a clear instinct of an Entrepreneur. The definition per se may vary but I am digging deeper into the essence of the word.

Class Struggle

The dream of every man to have money, fame, freedom and power in his possession gave birth to a society divided by class struggles. Prior to this, we were living in a classless society with equal opportunity to all resources around us. But man is a born warrior and so his whims and caprices brought him to pedestal, wars & chaos and the rest is history.

The era of classifying people by what he is through what is in his mind and in his pocket opened us to the world of governance and economy. Every people have been classified as worker, farmer, businessman, artist, politician and so on. The name is vast and broad but one thing is definite, in every man’s heart dwells the aspirations for Money, Fame, Freedom and Power. Politics has been a swift way to achieve these dream. Politicians have easy access to many businesses, news and justice.

The Birth of the Entrepreneurs

For a common man who has the same dream but has no chance to walk in the arena of governance and politics made his way to the business world. They started out as simple merchants in early times and now tagged a new name; “The Entrepreneur “

We are all entrepreneur. Each and everyone of us has been an entrepreneur in our own odd ways. The drive to have that money land in our hand and to have a decent living is entrepreneurial. When a common factory worker allocates a little amount of money and capitalizes it to sell something so he can extend his budget is doing an entrepreneurial stuff thus making him an entrepreneur.

Classifications of Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs can be classified as small time, big time, successful, risk taker or even a loser.

Of course this is how we handle our entrepreneurial skill. Business is a vast world of competition and only the mighty and the wise will reign. This arena has put many entrepreneurs in fame, freedom and power. Some even made it bigger than the government itself. They are the fulfilled and powerful entrepreneurs and we start to call them as Businessman to give distinction from the rest.

Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur?

Yes. As I said earlier, we are all entrepreneur. But we are differed by our drives and performance. Put out 100 dollar from your pocket and buy a pack of onion. Repack it into 5 packs and start selling it at $25 per pack, at the end of the day, you are $25 dollar richer than when you are starting. Duplicate this process everyday, add some lists, targets or buy a cart as your first asset and Bingo! You are now a certified entrepreneur. The key to be a successful entrepreneur is simple. Be consistent and innovative. These two powerful characters have lead many people to success.

Okay, now you know that you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur, so what’s your plan now?

Of course you don’t have to rush to the department of trade to register your business. What will you do? For a positive start, go to a high location, maybe a second floor of a building, a field or any place where you could see the ground and the buildings around you. Look down, smile, stand firm and tell yourself: “Yes I have the Potential!” No, I’m not kidding, this is developing self confidence. You have to arm yourself with confidence so you will have the drive and strength to go beyond.

When you think you are ready to start, define what’s on your mind.

What do you want to do?

What do you want to sell?

What do you want to share?

Of course business and entrepreneurship is not all product selling. Look at yourself.

What are your skills?

Your strengths?

Your talents?

You can offer these as services without monetary capitalization. Yes, we can always be entrepreneurs minus the financial capital. I am writing and earning decent money from thinking and writing and sharing these secrets to you. I may not be a powerful entrepreneur but I have the freedom to work and earn in my pajamas.

My objective in writing this article is to waken your entrepreneurial being which maybe drowning from a lot of frustrations and disappointments.

Com’on, you’re an entrepreneur man! Go find the right product and services for you and start earning. There simply no boundary for the word called: Success.

That’s all for now readers, I hope my writing has awaken your entrepreneurial spirit 🙂

Blogging, PageRank and PageViews

OCTOBER 22, 2008

This is my second month here at WordPress.

Before i moved my blog from blogspot, I have fear if I will gain readership here. I’ve stayed with yahoo and google services for many years and I never really engage myself from blogging. But in my short stay here, the response of my readers is amazing. I only plan to write at least one post per week but the active participation of my readers urge me to write more. I even find myself scooping events, taking pics and videos so I can cope up with friends and reader’s request. Private inquiries find its way to my inbox and most of all, writing jobs flourished and filled my idle time. When I finished installing google toolbar yesterday, I was even more surprised seeing a google rank of 1 considering that the birth of my blog has just arrived in a short period of time. I also have seen many sites linked to me. And for this, I want to give my sincere thanks and appreciation to my regular readers and friends who added me in their contact list and included me in their bloghopping schedules. These are the faces you often see in my widgets in my sidebar and some who requested for a link, I put their link in my side bar as well.

These developments taught me how to love my blog and find ways on how to improve my page views.

Years ago, I put my mind in learning many programs so I can start a homebase business. I learned all the programs needed to create company and student identification cards, business cards, tarpaulin, stickers and many printing related projects. I also learned installing biometric and school management system to some of my client who required me to setup and install those services.

I learned the basics of adobe dreamweaver and flash and started designing static webpages for my clients as early as 2002. At first, I set my mind in developing my skills in web development but the fact that I’m a mommy working homebase, I can’t deal with the huge demand of my service. I can’t cope up since I don’t have employees to work with me. It’s been my dream to put up and establish an IT company but the struggle for capitalization is always there. I can’t resort to financial sharks here since I know I’ll just end up drowning with debts.

But blogging find its ways to my blood. Another source of income have flowed in our hands and I am very thankful to God that in the midst of our crisis, He bestowed a fine blessings to us.

I always want to share these good things to you readers so join with me as I discover ways on how to improve our blogging activities. We’re all in this together and I want you to know some of the things I did to improve our blogging skill.

I created some KeyPoints for you:

1. Improve the look of your site. Make it relevant to your content. Since I am from the Philippines, I used a picture of our park, The Luisita Park in my header to conform with my title, “A Glimpse to the Pearl”. I’ve chosen this title because I want other people from other countries to have a glimpse  to a Filipino way of life, not only the bad side of politics but the good heart of its citizen as a whole and the abundance that  Mother Nature bestowed on us.

2. Stick to your theme. If your content is about making money, or computers, be sure that you can sustain it so reader wont get bored and will find your topics exciting and informative so reading your site will be worth of their time. Since I am not geared to a particular topic, I am trying to discuss diversified issues on governance and social issues, parenting, online earning, current events and IT related topics. I want this blog to be a magazine type not just confined in fashion and politics.

3. Try to share some useful informations. If you really want to monetize from your site, don’t make your blog just a place where you can shout your ravings and rantings. Remember, your readers have enough of their own. Of course we have the freedom to express it here but don’t do it everyday 🙂 Sharing what you learn and how you earn will be an interesting topic as it will help other newbie bloggers who are just starting their way.

4. Give a prompt response to inquiries. Give your readers a feel of your personal touch. They are happy when you personally response to their query. That will leave a mark on their mind, not just a bookmark on their toolbar.

5. Watch your statistic. Observe your trend, when is the time that your site is at its peak or when  is the time that you have few visitors. I usually look at the keyword which my readers used to find my page. If I don’t have the topic, I’ll try to create one like when I wrote a post about Mount Pinatubo. Since  one of my tag is Tarlac, searchers for Mt. Pinatubo Tarlac always lands in my page so i decided to write about it and it become one of my top post. (POST UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 14, 2012: NOT ONLY A TOP POST BUT WE ARE NOW RANKED AS ONE OF THE MOST TRUSTED TRIP ORGANIZER ARRANGING MOUNT PINATUBO CLIMB 😉 AND THIS IS JUST BECAUSE OF THAT POST)

6. Try to add some widgets to know your visitors. I joined MyBlogLog, a yahoo service which also track your visitors. It’s a cool service which gives you the opportunity to add contacts and join communities. I also joined Blogcatalog and Technorati which also offer the same service. When you avail their service, you will have the chance to monitor your visitors and readers and you will have the opportunity to communicate with them. Joining Blog directories will be a great help to increase your traffic.

7. Give some love. Visit their blogs too. Remember, it must be a mutual relationship not a one way mirror. My community member is my priority. I am doing a regular round of visit to their blogs, when I started doing this, I noticed that they are doing the same. My contact is my second priority, when I still have time, I will also visit the blogs of my contacts who are also active and visiting my blog, I am doing this at least 2 to 3 times a week.

8. Acknowledge your new visitor. When I see a new face in my widget, I usually visit their blog, say a thank you note and ask them if you could add them. That would open a way for another blogger friend.

9. Don’t flood yourself with so many ads and buttons especially pop ups. Sometimes this scare our visitors away. Try to limit those and just use the ones which is useful to you. I am creating a page intended for links so I can really have a place  where I can post the links to my accounts and communities. It’s still under construction but I noticed that my visitors are clicking on that page. I realized that readers are also interested with your links and what is your favorite site. So it’s really a good place for your affiliate market.

10. Make posting a daily habit. Of course it’s a constant change, readers want to read new post everyday. Let’s try to make at least 2 to 3 posts a week.

11. Advertise your skill. Yes! why would you just let other advertiser monetize from your site? Add your own advertisement too! I have new clients when I posted my ads and services. I included the link to the fun quizzes and Odesk. This pave way to other writing offers. Employers are hiring me directly thru my blog. oDesk even sent me an oDesk T-shirt and featured my blog in their September newsletter.

12. Watch your targets and turn around time. Beat the deadlines. Well, it’s one of the trade offs lol! 🙂 Earning your dollar is not easy. We really have to make an effort if we really want to earn more. But the fun is still there since I am doing it in my pajamas or I may say underwear haha! 🙂

That’s all for now guys, I hope you learn something here. Till next post. Paalam! hanggang sa Muli! 🙂

{paalam: goodbye} {hanggang sa muli: Til next post}

Online Work Updates

OMG! I am more than a week late. It’s October 9 and I never make a single post yet for October.

Sorry guys, this month seems like a marathon for me. I am running after my deadlines. Online writing jobs are coming in and I have to cope up. The inquiry of Colorado based publishing in my author page was added in my daily schedule. Hi Brad! You’re in my first post for October 🙂 I’m glad to be a part of your team and of course I am ready for head bashing lol! I guess I have to start looking for a new helmet 🙂

…and Before I forget….

I would like to thank oDesk team for featuring my blog in their September Newsletter. I am excited for the oDesk T-shirt that you sent me.

To give you an idea about the shirt, I included it in my post. It’s not in my possession yet as oDesk team just sent it the other day. I guess I need to wait for a couple of week before I receive it.

Once again Thank you oDesk Team! You guys really rock! and I am proud to be a part of your growing family 🙂 Two Thumbs Up!!

Another Project from Calbayog Samar

My friend Liza arrived from Calbayog, Samar last September 17, 2008. May pasalubong syempre, malagkit na duman sa dahon, pili tart at fresh tuyo. Is there such thing as fresh tuyo? Lol 🙂 Liz thank you ha. Very late na tong post ko.

Her present partner Riz is a native of Calbayog and Liz went home to join her on their fiesta celebration. Liz, if you’re reading this, you owe me some photos okay? The good news is, they were able to close a deal at Samar Agricultural High School with almost 240 students. It’s an ID contract with free web presence.

I was surprised when I received a text message from Liza asking me for detailed instructions about ID pictorial. I remember the very first time we took photos for elementary students in one of the Public school at Tarlac, it was such an unforgettable experience. That was almost 1,000 students and I was so exhausted on our first day. After that, I created a comprehensive plan and procedure with complete forms and materials that will help us facilitate a speedy pictorial.

I gave Liza some inputs thru YM and amazingly, they managed to finished the pictorial in one day without any hassle. Congratulations Liz & Riz for a job well done! Any birthpain? 🙂

Heres some of the photo of the place…

Hanep sa pose ha, parang babarilin sa Luneta hehehe 🙂

Typical provincial look

Na miss ko tuloy my homeland Bikol ganitong-ganito yung itsura ng school ko nun 🙂

O, sa gitna ng parang yan 🙂

Imagine di mo na kailangan mag trek, papasok ka pa lang sa school parang trekking na 🙂

San Francisco Day Care Center

I just finished creating the blogsite for San Francisco Day Care Center. This is one of our 3 day care center projects. They have almost 70 day care students. I designed and printed their student ID cards and as you can see the number of students does not give us enough profit but we are giving them free web presence.

Giving out free IT trainings and web presence are my bid for social responsibility. I always believe that education plays a major role in nation building. For this reason, I am sharing my skill to achieve these goals. I already conducted several free IT trainings in the past and this is my contribution to bridge digital divide in my own way. I am encouraging organizations and public schools in my province to avail the advantages of having web presence which shall benefit the students, the parents & the school. It will enhance communication because the school will have a good venue to post current activities and upcoming programs.

Excerpt from San Francisco blogsite:

Social Workers are also considered as “Living Heroes” because of their unceasing effort to help and serve the community. Running and teaching a public day care center requires patience and passion. Mrs. Rebecca Manalang is one good example, she is not just teaching the kids but she’s extending motherly love as well.

The concept of daycare program is to help the working parents and prepare the children for formal education. Attending daycare center will enhance good behavior as the children learns to play within the spirit of cooperation and teamwork. Although, children are not graded academically, they still have writing and reading sessions. They are taught how to draw and create projects which improve their learning skills…. More click here…

Job Search in Tarlac

Job searches for Tarlac always goes to my landing pages. I’m sorry guys that you can’t find Job Posting in my blog because I don’t have contact with the establishments here. I’m just a typical mommy working online and homebase. Most of the events in Tarlac that I am featuring in my blog are the activities that my kids attended. They are the one who gather data and photos for those events.

 

Please check our local website at http://www.tarlaccity.gov.ph/local_employment.htm. They are also posting current events and job vacancies. But if you have writing skills and you want to work online like me, I can give you tips on how to start. Just leave a message in my comment box and we can PM.

Thanks for the regular readers of my blog, you’re always in my widget, gorgeous faces 🙂 I really appreciate it.

 

CorpuzPowerPrint Latest Projects

Aside from Martinet School and Montessori de Xevera, We also have ongoing projects with the following schools and establishments:

RECON Security Agency

I just finished the design for their ID and pictorial is ongoing. If we reach the target of at least 300 security guards, we will provide them a free web design for their local website in Tarlac Branch.

Part of our promotion, we are giving free web designs and IT training for schools and companies that will avail any of our services for at least 300 students/employees and up. We also have free computer and printer for 3 years contract. Please click this link for further details: CorpuzPowerPrint

We also have an ongoing pictorial for students’ ID at Maligaya Daycare Center, Paraiso Daycare Center and San Francisco Daycare Centers. These are Public daycare centers funded by Government under the administration of DSWD- Department of Social Workers and Development, Tarlac. I will also create a free website or blogsite for these 3 daycare centers so they can post photos of their school activities and programs.

These are my designs of their student IDs

We also closed the deal for Big 5 Fitness Gym, Mc Arthur Highway, Maligaya, Tarlac City. I designed their business card and membership card and we still have an ongoing negotiation for their ID and free website design.

And lastly, we just finished printing the stickers for TBC – Tarlac-Bamban-Capas Jeepney Operators and Drivers’ Association. They are considering to hire our service for their ID to avail of free IT Training and website design.

Giving free IT training and Free Website design are part of my bid for social responsibility. I am also giving free IT trainings for the kids in our neighborhood every summer vacation and my eldest daughter Jessica is helping me out with this project. We are also planning to organize a youth IT Club in our community. I don’t have enough money to give out but we have skills to share and in our little ways, I know we are doing our share in nation building and I’m glad that my kids are joining me in realizing these goals.

Working & Earning Online

I received an inquiry about odesk.com the other day. I was asked how I managed to get projects at oDesk. It may sound doubtful but I know why. I joined many websites for freelancers but I may say that oDesk is different. I need to pass the oDesk readiness test and complete my profile or make it 100% before I became a verified provider. I also took other qualifying tests like English Proficiency and XP skills. Taking and passing test at oDesk will increase your chance to be hired.

Working with oDesk is secured as employers send payment thru them. You can also apply for oDesk card to receive your payment. In my case, I demand payment thru PayPal and for those who are starting, I recommend that you open a PayPal account and get verified.

It’s not easy to be hired though; you still need to go on a series of biddings to get a project. You really need a good track record & good writing skill to qualify and this blog serves as my portfolio. My chance to get good projects increased since I started blogging. I also meet contacts who refer me to employers scouting for freelancers. And the last but not the least, I found reliable financial institution where I can run for fast cash payday loans during emergencies.

Financial Matter

There’s a scarcity of job in the first world. Not because they have economic problem but because companies cuts costs and opt to outsourcing and offshoring. If you do a company hopping you’ll find out that within huge buildings and establishments are just a few numbers of employees. This is not good for the workers and job seekers but for us who lives in the third world country, we find it helpful since we are given an opportunity to compete and prove our worth.

I am one of the many Filipina freelancers working online. I do most of the work during night time when my kids are already in bed. Most of the time I am writing till dawn to meet deadlines. I joined many websites for freelancers and started bidding jobs at a very cheap price. After sometime, I found employers who pays reasonable price. One of the companies who hired me is devbook.com. I am writing fun quizzes and I really enjoy the job.

But working online cannot be a main source of income. It is only an extra income where we can have an extra budget for family expenses. I still run a family homebase business wherein we can have fix earnings on daily basis. Running a family of four kids is not easy and there are times that we are really on a tight budget and needs extra cash for unexpected expenses. When we are in the midst of crisis wherein we need additional fund, it’s good to know that there are financial institutions that we can run to and I will mention at least 2 in my lists, fastcashonline and pacificadvance. They are reliable if you are in need of cash advance during emergencies.

PayPal Verification Process: Philippines

How to become a verified PayPal Member

You must have a credit/debit card with Visa or MasterCard logo. If you don’t have a credit card, I recommend that you apply for a CyberEon card. The last time I checked, it only costs 350.00Php (Annual Fee). You can apply online or visit Union Bank branch near you. Bring 2 valid IDs and picture and also photocopy of your 2 valid IDs. It will take more or less 2 weeks before you receive the Eon card. Deposit an amount equivalent to $1.95 or maybe at least 200Php to your Eon Card. This will be used for PayPal verification but will be returned to you after you are verified.Your card will be activated within 24 hours. You can also enroll it in Union Bank online banking. After activation, you can link your Eon card to your Paypal account. The CCV code is the last three numbers at the back of your Eon card.

Paypal will charge $1.95 to your card but don’t worry it will be returned to you. Check your card to see if you are already deducted with the said amount. It may take 2-4 business days for the code to appear on your online account statement. If you are enrolled in online banking, you can log to see your credit card statement and get your code. If you can’t access your credit card statement online, you can call and ask a Customer Service for your Expanded Use Number (or in short, your Paypal code – EXPUSE)

Once you retrieved your PayPal code, log-in to your PayPal account and click “confirm my debit or credit card” link on the Account Overview page to enter your code.

After Verification Process, you can now add another bank account and withdraw from any Philippine Bank Account.

How to add another Bank Account

Log into your PayPal account,

Click the ‘Profile’ tab and then click ‘Add or Edit Bank Account’

Add your bank details

Note:

Your First name and Family Name on your PayPal account must match the name on your bank account, if it doesn’t match, your withdrawal request may be rejected by your bank.

Review your bank account information

Add your Bank Code. Bank codes can be found in my previous post.

Click ‘Add Bank Account‘ to confirm

Click the ‘My Account‘ tab and then click the ‘Withdraw‘ sub tab

Select the ‘Withdraw funds to your bank account’ option

Note:

Withdrawals equal or more than PHP 7,000 are free.

For withdrawal amounts of less than PHP 7,000, there will be a fee of PHP 50

Select the bank account and amount to withdraw

Confirm the transfer

It typically takes 5-7 business days. However, depending on your bank’s policies, it may take longer

Bank Codes of Philippine Banks

Some of my friends who are applying for PayPal verification are calling me and asking for Philippine Bank codes so I decided to post it here. I hope this will help you too.

I know some of you fellow freelance Pinoys and Pinays who are working online are still in the process of creating PayPal Account and experiencing some problems on verification process. I know it because when I was processing mine, I visit so many forums and discussion groups just to get the proper procedure and now that I am blogging, I will post the entire procedure here in my next post.

Martinet School IT Training

August 18, 2008

I conducted an IT Training at Martinet School Inc, a private grade school at Maligaya, Tarlac City. The training was attended by 17 participants, composed of faculty and staff of Martinet school.

Among the participants were Mrs. Josefina B. Tolentino, Martinet’s principal and Mrs. Amanda L. Reyes, School’s Board of Director.

The Training was focused on Computer Fundamentals, Internet and the World Wide Web. The faculty and staffs were actively participating in the discussions. The training started at 9am and has ended at 4pm.

I was very pleased with the warm accommodation of Mrs. Tolentino and Mrs. Reyes. They are still looking forward for continuous training in the future.

IT Training and seminar is one of my bid for social responsibility. I believe that the key to progress is to help the country in nation building, and one important factor is education.

Since, Philippines is one of the third world, the digital divide is so prominent. Most people in key cities are still left behind as far as IT is concerned.

In my experience, people are just using computers for documentation and internet is just for email, chat and research. This little knowledge goes for many years as there are so few institutions giving out free IT Training.

In this training, I gave emphasis in integrating IT in educating students. I am urging them to go out from traditional blackboard and chalk and maximize the use of computer and create interactive materials as aid in teaching.

Most of the teachers agreed to this call but they raised the problem that they need to understand and learn further the use of presentation programs.

We agreed in continuous training and support. I know this will add up to my busy schedule but I am happy to impart my knowledge and help them enhance their skill.

I just hope that someday, I can find people to support me to organize an institution wherein we can give IT training for free. We really need this in my country.

MOUNT PINATUBO: One of Philippines Tourist Attraction

Today,  I  want to share my experience in Tarlac, how I reached this place and witnessed the horrific eruption and  how this  turned  me into a Pinatubo Tour Operator.

Philippines, though categorized as a third world country, is very rich in natural resources. We have extensive sea coast with good bays and harbors, navigable rivers and lakes, mountains and caves, land rich in minerals and agricultural products. Back in 70s, Philippines is one of the richest countries in Asia.

There are many factors why we are one of the poorest now. The Government seat has full of corrupt officials who never serve the interest of the Filipino people. Our Political system is one of the the few  things that I can never proud of.

As requested by some of my blogger friends and readers, I will be featuring one of the most visited tourist spot in my place, Mount Pinatubo. This mountain is an active volcano located in the island of Luzon and can be found at the intersection of the borders of the provinces of Zambales, Pampanga and Tarlac. The volcano’s recent eruption in June 1991, two weeks after I was transferred here from Manila (I’m not a local here, I was assigned to work here). This eruption came after 500 years of dormancy and produced one of the largest and most violent eruptions of the 20th century. This resulted to dislocations of thousands of families, destroyed many towns, houses, churches and millions worth of properties and resources. One of our indigenous people, the Aetas, who were living peacefully at the foot of the mountain, were evacuated against their will but some stayed in the caves and just waited there to die.

I was sleeping peacefully on that early morning of  June 15, 1991  when my room mates woke me up  and told me that Mt. Pinatubo had erupted and when we go out we saw that big smoke of clouds circling the part where Mt. Pinatubo is located. The next days were storms of ash falls and we had to wear masks. Our company, International Wiring Systems Inc. (IWSPC), a subsidiary of a Japanese company Sumitomo Wiring Systems stopped its operation and sent us home. Most of us were pioneer employees of Kawasaki Motors Philippines from Sucat, Paranaque. We were offered a relocation to Luisita industrial Park to man and train the newly hired workers from  different municipality in Tarlac province.

After a week, we were back to work but we have to sweep and help clean the ankle deep ashes surrounding the entire building. Those were the unforgettable story of my first weeks in Tarlac.  We spent almost a month of clean up operation. This really sadden me but not as bad as those who lost their families and loved ones. Most of them never had the chance to recover even the remains as the ashes wiped out the entire towns and buried the houses turning the place into desert-like area.

More than a decade after, the trees started to grow, people started to build their houses again. That raging volcano turned into a beautiful tourist spot that is now visited by many tourists from parts of the world.

A local tourist from Manila will reach Mount Pinatubo in 5 hours depending upon the traffic and trekking speed. 2 hours  travel time via private car, more  than 1 hour off road ride and 2 hours  trekking.

There are public bus going to North. To name a few are; Victory liner, 5 Star, Dagupan Bus, Philippine Rabbit heading to Dagupan or Baguio City. The exact destination is Capas, Tarlac. That is at least 200php- more or less $5.

If you are interested to book a trip, just visit my business  website,  www.pinaykeypoint.org.

When our  company offered  an  early retirement program, I  immediately grabbed it on October 2005. I started  to work online and open a home-based printing  shop. I personally designed the ID card of  almost a hundred  Mount Pinatubo Tour Guides and most of them were Aetas.

Pinatubo Local Tour Guide ID

Where to eat and stay at Tarlac

There are low cost hotels and transient houses at the adjacent areas surrounding Mount Pinatubo. Some range from 1000php/day- or at least $25/day but first class hotels range from $50 and up. Food from local food chains & restaurants like Jollibee, Max’s, KFC, Shakeys, Pizza Hut, & Mc Donalds range from $3-5/meal per person.

Another attraction is the Mud Spa, Hot Spring, Volcanic Sand Spa and Massage  Spa

Our services were availed by different establishments here such as

advertisement banners, flyers, tarps & posters.

Because of the overwhelming response of my readers here, I included Mount Pinatubo Tour Guiding as part of our services.
