OFW SHOPPING ADVICE: Dito ka na sa Supermarket na Pinakamura sa Bayan!

Likas sa ating mga Pinoy ang pagiging family-oriented. Laging nauuna ang pamilya bago ang ibang bagay dahil para sa atin, family is everything. Kaya naman sa tuwing may nagtatanong kung bakit tinitiis ng ating mga kababayan ang malayo sa kanilang mga mahal sa buhay at makipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa ay ito lang ang kanilang sagot: “Kailangan eh, para sa pamilya.”

Talaga nga namang ‘so close yet so far’ ang eksena sa buhay ng ating mga kababayang OFWs.  Ngunit kahit nasa ibang bansa man sila, they always make sure na ramdam ng kanilang mga pamilya sa Pinas ang init ng kanilang pagmamahal by giving them nothing but the best. And just like them, ito din naman ang hangarin ng BeamAndGo to help them provide their family’s everyday needs through our digital gift certificates na magagamit nila upang makabili ng groceries, medicines, health and wellness kit, at marami pang iba!

We ensure that the control of your pera-padala is in your hands now!  Kaakibat ng aming hangarin ay malugod naming ipinakikila ang merchant partner namin na “Pinakamura Sa Bayan”, ang San Roque Supermarket.  Tignan niyo lang ang dami ng tao sa supermarket nila! Marami namang supermarket pero tila itong San Roque Supermarket ay dinudumog sa dami ng tao!

BeamAndGo_SRS_Busy Counter

Why San Roque Supermarket is your one-stop shop?

Ang pagiging kumpleto ang isa mga bagay na ipinagmamalaki ng San Roque Supermarket. They offer a wide variety of products na talaga namang hindi ka magdadalawang isip na bilhin dahil sa fresh na fresh ang mga karne at isda na swak lutuin sa pang-araw-araw na hapag-kainan ng pamilya. Hindi lang ‘yan! Talaga namang nostalgic ang mag shopping dito dahil kahit mga produktong uso noong ikaw ay bata pa ay available pa rin!

SRS_MEATS_BeamAndGo

Bukod sa groceries, available rin sa San Roque Supermarket ang mga school supplies para sa ‘yong mga chikiting. Alam niyo naman, marami sa ating mga OFW ang nagpapaaral ng mga anak natin! Yun naman talaga ang dahilan natin kaya tayo nag lakas luob magtrabaho sa ibayong dagat.

SRS_SCHOOLSUPPLIES_BeamAndGo

Kahit maraming sikat at malalaking supermarket dito sa Luzon ay wala pa ‘ring makakatalo sa San Roque Supermarket para sa mga OFWs dahil mababa ang presyo ng mga produkto dito. Sa slogan pa lang na “Pinakamura sa Bayan” ay talaga namang hindi mabigat sa bulsa.  Dito sa BeamAndGo, naniniwala kami na wala sa ganda ang basehan sa pagpili ng pupuntahang supermarket. Kung stress-free ang hanap mo, dito ka na sa SRS!

Siguraduhin lang na bago magtungo sa San Roque Supermarket  ay nakahanda na ang listahan ng mga grocery items na kukunin upang mapabilis ang iyong pamimili!

OFW SHOPPING ADVICE: Why Bataeños love this supermarket and department store?

Most of the people who don’t know the sacrifices and struggles of an OFW think that working abroad is just a piece of cake. But the truth is, life overseas is not as glamorous as it seems.

The OFW phenomenon has triggered the instant exodus of both skilled and service workers. They are being dispatched to different part of the globe. While OFWs are branded as modern-day heroes because of the much needed dollar remittances that pump the economy, the lush residences, and other earthly amenities from expensive gadgets to alcohol cannot pay off the negative impact of an absentee parent/s to the children left behind. It has influenced these children socially and emotionally.  Kaya dapat parents need to maintain their communication with their children.

Three years ago, BeamAndGo was born with a desire to help OFWs ensure their remittances are spent on basic needs – supermarkets, department stores, and pharmacies. If you use BeamAndGo, you are one step closer to kissing goodbye to all those horrific stories of broken OFW families.

Kaya naman may 15 supermarkets and department stores na ang BeamAndGo at ngayon, hangad namin na kayo ay magabayan sa pag-ba-budget ng inyong padala together with our new merchant partner, Vercons and Vergara’s Supermarket  Through our Digital Gift Certificates, your worries will be wiped out dahil sa assurance namin na sa tamang gastusin ito mapupunta.

Ano nga ba ang sikreto ng VERCONS AND VERGARA’S?

Vercons and Vergaras are considered as the “top of mind” shopping malls and supermarket stores in Bataan and Zambales. This merchant was managed by Mr. and Mrs. Vergara since 1987 and proved that the people near their 8 branches will be served well.

OFW SHOPPING: Bakit paborito ang Prince Hypermart sa Visayas at Mindanao?

Could you imagine how hard it is when the only choice you have is to temporarily leave your loved ones just to provide them their basic needs? If yes, then this piece is a must-read for you.

“Mahirap pero masaya”- Ito ang mga salitang karaniwan nating naririnig sa tuwing inilalarawan ng mga kababayan natin mula sa Visayas at Mindanao ang kanilang buhay sa probinsya.

Ngunit sa kabila ng kasiyahan, hindi pa rin natin maikakaila ang katotohanang marami sa kanila ang nagtitiis na mawalay sa kanilang mga mahal sa buhay matustusan lang ang pangangailangan ng mga ito. Sila ang mga bayaning Overseas Filipino Workers.

And with the aim of helping our kababayans abroad, BeamAndGo was born! Here we help them provide their family’s basic needs through our digital gift certificates that they can use to buy groceries, medicines, health and wellness kit and many more!

prince hypermart staff_BeamAndGo_Albert Go

We were welcomed by the friendly staff of Prince Hypermart! The branches also have a section for school supplies, home furniture and appliance, kitchenware, among others.

Why Prince Hypermart brings Joy to Filipinos?

And with the right array of products, low priced items, and personalized customer service, we can’t deny the fact that Prince Hypermart is giving a lively grocery shopping experience for everyjuan!

BeamAndGo_Nanay grocery

Nanay owns a sari-sari store and purchases goods weekly at this Prince Hypermart branch in Cebu. She goes to the branch with her list! OFWs and their families must learn to properly allocate their expenses

Barato at Kumpleto, Serbisyo Garantisado

Life in Visayas and Mindanao is very simple and full of contentment. Their reason for striving day by day is to earn money for them to be able to buy food to eat. Hindi bale nang wala silang magagandang gamit sa bahay, basta may maihahanda lang sa hapagkainan para sa buong pamilya. Ika nga nila, “bahala ug wala’y TV basta naay bugas”. With this, we can strongly say that they are in their simplest way of living.

At dahil nais ng BeamAndGo na kayo ay matulungan, inihahandog namin ang Prince Hypermart upang ibigay ang  pangunahing pangangailangan ng iyong pamilya!

OFW Shopping Advice: Buy more, spend less!

Overseas Filipino Workers’ life is never easy. They are like soldiers, and their biggest weapon is courage. It is not a surprise that these people have a universal trait called selflessness. For them, the struggle of working abroad is not a hindrance to attain their dreams for their loved ones here in the Philippines.

Kung uuwi ka ngayong summer, isakto mo na sa week-long celebration ng Araw ng Dabaw! Sa linggong ito, the people of Davao celebrate their foundation as a city. From March 10 to 16, kaliwa’t kanan ang kantahan, sayawan, cultural performances at competitions. Magsusulputan ang mga vendor ng local food and delicacies na siguradong nakakatakam. Hindi mawawala dito ang paborito nating Durian at iba-ibang pagkaing gawa dito.

Sa huling araw, may masaya at makulay na paradang magiikot sa Davao City. Ito ang pinakamasaya at nakaka-enganyong bahagi ng celebration na ito.

Kadayawan Festival

Sino pa ba sa atin ang hindi pa nakakarinig sa Kadayawan Festival? It’s one of the most popular festivals in the region and in the Philippines. Nagdadagsaan ang mga turista sa Davao para makisama sa kasiyahang ito!

Every third week of August, Davao celebrates its abundance of culture, harvest, life, and oneness of the people. Nakakatuwang masilayan ang mga tradisyon ng mga lumad, mga tribong muslim na binibigyan ng pagkakataong ipamahagi ang kanilang kultura sa Kadayawan. Makikita ang mga ito sa Tribuhaning Pasundayag Cultural Show at Tribuhanong Dula games. Sikat din ang sayawan sa street dance parade o Indak-indak sa Kadalanan. Dancer groups from all over Mindanao come to showcase their culture through music and dance. Another highlight of the festival is the pageant, Hiyas ng Kadayawan. This is where the smart and beautiful young women of Davao compete to become the representative of Davao’s colorful culture and tradition.

Like Araw ng Dabaw, Kadayawan also ends with a parade. Pamulak Kadayawan is a parade of flowers and fruits by communities, organizations, and businesses. The flowers and fruits symbolizes the abundance of bounty in Davao.

Aside from these festivals, the different communities in Davao and its neighboring provinces celebrate their heritage during different fiestas. Pagpapakita ito ng pasasalamat para sa mga biyaya. This is why a lot of festivals celebrate bounty and agriculture: Palay Festival, Banana Festival, Durian Festival, etc. Marami din ang fiesta para sa mga santo at santa, o mga sinaunang diyos ng mga ninuno sa Davao. But one thing Davaoeños and Filipinos are most thankful for is being with loved ones to celebrate life. Wala talagang tatalo sa piyestang Pinoy dahil nandito ang lahat ng makakapagpasaya sa atin.

Tamang Alaga para sa inyong Pamilya (Part 1)

HEALTH IS WEALTH!

Bilang OFWs, alam na alam na natin ang halaga ng pag-aalaga sa ating kalusugan. Mahirap nang magkasakit lalo na’t mahalaga ang bawat oras sa ating mga trabaho. At kahit nasa malayong lugar tayo, siyempre, priority pa rin natin ang kalusugan ng ating mga mahal sa buhay dito sa Pilipinas.

At ang good news d’yan ay mas makakatipid ka na sa healthcare needs ng iyong pamilya dahil narito na ang BeamAndGo upang tulungan kang magpadala ng generic medicines na talaga namang mas mura kumpara sa branded counterparts nito.

GENERIC O BRANDED NA GAMOT?

Ano nga ba ang kaibahan ng generic na gamot sa branded na gamot? Bakit nga ba mas mura ang generic medicines? Mas marami nga ba itong side effects kaysa sa branded na mga gamot? Mas safe nga ba ang branded medicine kaysa sa generic counterpart nito?

Maraming katanungang bumabalot sa mga generic medicines, kaya naman katulong ang RiteMed (Powered by MedExpress), sasagutin ng BeamAndGo ang ilan sa mga katanungan tungkol sa generic medicines mula sa ating mga kapwa-OFWs:

patentedIsa sa malaking sanhi ng pagkakaiba ng presyo ng generic at branded na gamot ay ang pag-aaral at pagsusuri na ginagawa upang mabuo ang mga branded na gamot. Pino-protektahan ng patent ang sangkap, gawa, at disenyo ng mga branded na gamot, at pinapayagan lamang ang mga pagawaan na bumuo at magbenta ng generic na gamot kung nag-expire ang patent ng isang gamot. Ito rin ang dahilan kung bakit nauunang lumabas sa merkado ang mga branded na gamot.

Gluten-in-OTC-and-Prescription-Medicines.jpgBukod sa pangalan o brand, kinakailangang magkaiba ang hugis, kulay, inactive ingredients, at laki ng branded na gamot at ang generic counterpart nito. Walang pinagkaiba sa active ingredients at proseso sa paggawa ng mga ito. Katulad ng mga branded na gamot, ang production ng generic medicines ay alinsunod sa health standards mula sa FDA.

1Ang allergies o side effects mula sa gamot ay hindi naka-base sa brand ng gamot. Depende ito sa kalagayan ng kalusugan at allergic reactions sa mga piling kemikal, at maaaring iba-iba ito sa bawat tao. Branded o generic na gamot man ang nais na gamitin, mahalagang magpa-konsulta sa doktor upang malaman ang nararapat na gamot para sa iyong katawan. At kung branded naman ang i-recommend ng iyong doktor, maaari mo rin tanungin ang generic counterpart nito.
