*re-post* Lots of exciting deals for as low as 90% discount. Sign up now, links below!

Online bargain hunting has never been exciting! Thanks to the myriad of Groupon sites that started sprouting left and right here in our beloved place, Manila.

Groupon is a shortcut for “Group Coupons” that offers unbeatable deals to the hottest restaurants, spa and salon services, health, beauty and fitness, hotel and travel package, store outlets for a minimum of 50% and as high as 90% discount!

How it works? Groupon sites features an amazing deal everyday. Most of these sites require a minimum number of purchases for the deal to be activated. If it didn’t reach the required number, then nobody gets the deal.

Groupon sites in Manila patterned their business model from a popular website called Groupon itself which is a deal-of the-day website that is localized to major geographic markets in the United States and Canada.

Now it’s our time to take advantage of these amazing deals!

Let me share some of the leading Groupon sites here in Manila:

CashCashPinoy has got to be the leading groupon site in Manila. (and my favorite, too!)

What I like about Cash Cash Pinoy is it doesn’t require a minimum number of purchase for the deals to get activated. It is more of a deal/bargain site for us consumers. *lucky*

BUYanihan features good deals everyday. You can buy the deal if you like it but you won’t be charged unless the minimum number of people required to sign up is met to make the deal successful.

Ensogo is a FREE service that offers great deals of 50%-90% savings on the best things to enjoy, see, eat, and buy in Manila.

LocalRoam is a great way to explore your city with your friends without breaking the bank. Each day, LocalRoam offers an amazing deal–up to 90% off–on stuff to do, see, eat, or buy in and around cities in the Philippines.

I personally am a bargain hunter and I would love other groupon sites to spread their wings and offer us a lot of amazing deals between 50-90% off! E.v.e.r.y.d.a.y!

I’ll be sure to share more of my groupon discoveries here with you on the blog, so stay tuned.

all you can eat!

8 Ways to Self-Actualize

1. Experience things fully, vividly, selflessly. Throw yourself into the experiencing of something: concentrate on it fully, let it totally absorb you.

2. Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth): Make the growth choice a dozen times a day.

3. Let the self emerge. Try to shut out the external clues as to what you should think, feel, say, and so on, and let your experience enable you to say what you truly feel.

4. When in doubt, be honest. If you look into yourself and are honest, you will also take responsibility. Taking responsibility is self-actualizing.

5. Listen to your own tastes. Be prepared to be unpopular.

6. Use your intelligence, work to do well the things you want to do, no matter how insignificant they seem to be.

7. Make peak experiencing more likely: get rid of illusions and false notions. Learn what you are good at and what your potentialities are not.

8. Find out who you are, what you are, what you like and don’t like, what is good and what is bad for you, where you are going, what your mission is. Opening yourself up to yourself in this way means identifying defenses – and then finding the courage to give them up.

– by Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist.

the man behind the camera

is the man behind my big appetite for life.

the man behind the most entertaining jokes hence the man behind my hysterical and roaring laughter.

the man behind mars that only makes me feel good even if i am from venus.

the man behind the creative world that invite the artsy in me.

the man behind the smiles, the laughter and the joy in my heart.

the man behind the hopes, the dreams and the aspirations i continue to nurture.

the man behind the inspiration to live a creative, happy and fulfilled life.

the man behind me when i’m badly down with an illness,

is the same man behind me when i’m bursting with love and energy i could not contain.

the man behind the camera is the man behind my wonderful life, my joyful heart and my sweet soul.

i will forever be grateful for sharing my everyday with you.

i love you, darling with all my heart.

P.S. I sneaky sneak into his photograph collections and took this photo.
