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.

Food is one of the most important needs of our family. Hindi mawawala sa atin na hindi ito paglalaanan.

Hong Kong Domestic Helper: 8 Things You Should Do On Weekends

Buong linggo ka nang nagta-trabaho. Mag-enjoy ka naman! Your days off are perfect to spend time taking care of your well-being. Ang pagpapahinga mo ay kailangan for a healthy mind and a healthy body. Dahil dito, we’ve made a list of things you can do on the days you aren’t working.

Pero teka muna! Before getting ready for the weekend, make sure you’ve already done the tasks you need to do. Naayos mo na ba ang mga gamit mo? Nakapamili ka na ba ng mga kailangan mo? Nakapag-send ka na ba nBeamAndGo Digital Gift Certificates sa pamilya mo? These are a few of the things you need to do that won’t take up much of your time – lalong-lalo na ang pagpapadala using www.BeamAndGo.com. Within a few minutes, you can already send Supermarket GCs for your family’s grocery shopping! It’s an easy way to take care of your family in the Philippines, even when abroad. Kaya naman proud na proud kami ibahagi sa inyo ang kwento ni Juliet Lindo na taga Compostela Valley, a proud na proud na NCCC and GMall customer ng Pacific Ace!

 

As soon as you have some free time, gawin mo na ang mga ito para naman madagdagan ang oras mo to take care of yourself. Here are 10 things you can do during the weekend or during your time-off, enjoy!

1. Just relax and unwind!

Juliet_Lindo_Blog_BeamAndGo

Unang-una, kailangan mong mag-relax. Hindi ka robot! Try to take a walk near the bay, mag yoga ka katulad ni Ms. Juliet Lindo na taga Hong Kong. Watch one of your favorite shows, and slow down for a while. Hindi mo kailangang magmadali. Makakatulong pa ang pag-relax para makaipon ka ng energy for the work week ahead.

2. Exercise

Juliet_Lindo_Blog_BeamAndGo_taekwondo

May tendency tayong kalimutan na we need exercise to stay fit and healthy. This helps us improve our immune system to prevent us from getting sick. Exercising also helps us improve our mood – dopamine effect yan para happy tayo! It’s good to have at least 30 minutes of physical activity everyday. So kapag hinahatid mo yung alaga mo sa school, counted narin yun! On weekends naman, mag sign up kayo ng yoga, taekwondo, zumba, or hiphop dancing! There’s so many OFW groups to join! Hindi naman kailangang kumuha pa ng gym membership o lumayo kung nasaan ka. You can simply jog around your area or follow an exercise routine on YouTube.

3. Learn a new skill!

Juliet_Lindo_Blog_BeamAndGo_skill

If your body needs it, your mind needs it too! Studying is your way to exercise your mind. Marami kang pagpilian: novels, online articles, blogs, news, at para naman kay Juliet Lindo, otherwise known as “Sweetify” in Facebook, dapat matuto mag sulat ng Chinese at mag converse sa local Cantonese para maging competitive at maging effective sa communication with Hong Kong locals. Basta ang punto ay never stop learning! Bawal ang tamad-tamaran.

4. Go out

juliet_lindo_blog_beamandgo_cover.jpg

Just because you’re working there, doesn’t mean you can’t be a tourist. Ang mga araw na wala kang trabaho ang oras mo para magpaka-turista! Siguradong marami pang lugar na hindi mo pa napupuntahan d’yan – malls, parks, landmarks, and other tourist destinations. Imagine niyo, may mga magagandang beach pala sa Hong Kong! Makakakuha ka pa ng mga selfie na ipapadala mo sa mga kapamilya mo sa Pilipinas! Disneyland, check! Bida ka pa sa mga anak mo!

5. Eat good food

DimDimSum is the personal favorite of Juliet Lindo! It’s a unique restaurant and surprisingly easy on the pocket! Once in a while, we all deserve to eat good food! Photo taken from scandinaviantraveler.com

 

Paborito nating mga Pinoy ‘to! Although nothing can compare to genuine Filipino cooking, why don’t you try local foods and delicacies where you are? Para maiba naman, diba? Whether those are dumplings in Hong Kong, laksa in Singapore, pasta in Italy or paella in Spain, makakahanap ka ng masarap na pagkain at an affordable price. Since local food is frequently found in each country, siguradong may mga mura kang options para hindi masakit sa iyong bulsa.

6. Go shopping

Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 11.25.27 AM.png

Whether it’s for you or or your loved ones, masarap mag-shopping. Kaya nga dito sa Pilipinas, hilig talaga natin ang magpunta sa mga mall. The weekend is perfect for you and your friends to go out and buy stuff (know the differenc between Needs and Wants!). Ang needs ang mga kailangan mo talaga at wants ay pang libangan lang kapag may extra sa budget. But of course, don’t forget to stick to your budget. Minsan may mga manloloko diyan sa Central! Huwag magpaloko sa mga nagtitinda ng fake na mga alahas! Maganda na kayo kahit walang mga mamahaling ari-arihan. Always look for finds na sulit at swak sa inyong budget!

7. Start a small business (Hindi ito impossible!)

Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 11.27.29 AM.png

Hindi kailangang maging magastos ang weekend mo! This can also be a time for you to work on things you can earn money from. Gaano man kaliit o kalaki ang iyong naipon, siguradong may sideline o negosyong pwede mong pasukan. Pwede kang mag sideline na magbenta ng mga damit, accessories, o kaya naman mag bukas ng maliit na tindahan o sari-sari store. Don’t forget to check your country’s labor laws first and your employer if he or she will allow it! We advice that you consult your respective labor authorities before pursuing a business. If puwede, then go ahead na! Mas maganda kung ang business na sisimulan mo ay hilig mo rin, para natutuwa ka habang ginagawa mo ito. Si Juliet naman ang ginawa ay naging zumba instructor! Sa susunod, baka maging taekwondo instructor narin siya!

8. As a parent, don’t forget to contact your loved ones!

Juliet_Lindo_Blog_children_BeamAndGo

Dahil busy ka buong linggo, sa weekend lang kayo magkakaroon ng mahaba-habang usapan with your family and friends in the Philippines. May time ka dapat to catch up with your loved ones’ lives and to share your experiences with them. Mahalagang mapanatili ang open communication with your family. Kasama sa responsibilidad mo ang maging teacher, cheerleader, best friend, at disciplinarian kung kinakailangan – tulungan ang anak sa pag-aaral, siguraduhin na nagpapaalam sila kapag may pupuntahan, at mag celebrate kapag may mga big achievements!

Kahit malayo ka sa pamilya mo, maraming paraan para maging present pa rin sa mga buhay nila. Sa paggamit mo ng BeamAndGo madadalian kang ipakita sa kanila na mahal mo sila.

You can send Supermarket GCs, gift packages, and more!

Si Juliet natuklasan niya ang BeamAndGo sa Facebook at mula nuon, every month na siya nagpapadala sa mga anak niya sa Compostela Valley. Nagbabayad siya sa Pacific Ace tuwing katapusan ng buwan.

Kayapag ikaw naman ay nasa ibang bansa, marami pong paraan ang pagbayad sa BeamAndGo. Si Juliet, all she needed was to try it once! And now, she is able to budget her family’s grocery and department store expenses, all because of BeamAndGo

OFW SHOPPING: Bakit tinatangkilik ang Lee Plaza ng mga kababayan natin sa Dumaguete and Dipolog?

Dumaguete City is one of the most well-known provinces in Negros Oriental. With its gentle people, placid environment, tasty delicacies, and its power to attract considerable number of foreign tourists, talagang masasabi natin na Dumaguete is the place to be.

Siliman University_BeamAndGo

Silliman University has produced many successful OFWs! BeamAndGo.com toured the campus and was amazed seeing how they kept their traditions intact!

Ang sabi nga ng iba, ang Dumaguete ay sikat na sikat sa buong daigdig dahil sa mga nursing graduates sa Silliman University.  Basta’t nursing, it’s most likely Silliman! At huwag po magalit, kasi alam namin na ngayon naman mga bar exam top ten, produkto na rin ng Silliman University! Mapa OFW or lawyer, we at www.BeamAndGo.com  #respect #sillimanuniversity.

Just like Dumaguete, hindi rin magpapahuli ang Dipolog City sa Zamboanga Del Norte sa Mindanao upang ibida ang kagandahan ng kanilang probinsya. It is well known as the “Orchid City of the Philippines” kaya naman tiyak na mag-eenjoy ka sa bawat araw na ilalagi mo sa lugar na ito.

Ngunit lingid sa ating kaalaman na sa kabila ng kagandahan ng mga probinsyang ito ay tila hindi pa rin ito sapat na dahilan upang manatili ang ating mga kababayan sa lupa na kanilang kinalakihan. Kulang ang budget sa pang grocery? Kulang sa budget sa pambili ng gamot?

Ang sabi nga ng isang pamilyang OFW na nakausap namin sa BeamAndGo , “Ang ganda-ganda ng Lee Plaza, ang daming mabibili na mga damit at kagamitan, pag mag OFW ako, duon kami mag shoshopping! ”

Kaya naman nandito ang BeamAndGo upang ibsan ang kanilang pangungulila sa pamamagitan ng pagtulong sa kanila na mapadali ang kanilang pagpapadala.

At dahil mahal na mahal natin ang ating mga kababayang OFWs mula sa Dumaguete at Dipolog, hindi tumigil ang BeamAndGo team na maghanap ng partner merchant sa dalawang probinsya. At ang resulta ng aming walang sawang paghahanap, masaya naming inihahandog ang Lee Plaza Supermarket and Department store sa inyo! Kahit milya milya ang iyong distansya mula sa iyong pamilya, pwede mo parin silang maipag-shopping through our digital gift certificates. Sa pamamagitan nito ay pwede na silang bumili ng groceries, health and wellness products, apparel at iba pa sa Lee Plaza!

Albert Go_BeamAndGo_Supermarket

WE WERE WELCOMED BY THE FRIENDLY STAFF! THEY WERE VERY ALERT AND PROACTIVE!

Lee Plaza Supermarket

Isa sa pangunahing pangangailangan ng bawat pamilya ay ang pagkain. You can’t survive without feeding your stomach everyday kaya naman hindi nakalimutan ng Lee Plaza na magtayo ng malawak na supermarket for our kababayans in Dumaguete and Dipolog. With a perfect range of fresh and affordable goods, clean surroundings, and approachable and friendly staff, we can’t deny the fact that Lee Plaza is offering a spectacular grocery shopping experience for every Filipino.

Shelly_BeamAndGo_supermarket

Shopping Advice: Bumili ng tingi tingi or sakto lamang kapag fruits, vegetables, and meat!  In bulk naman kapag hindi nabubulok katulad ng soap or toiletries!

Lee Plaza Department Store

Maliban sa grocery shopping ay kinahiligan rin nating mga Pinoy ang pamimili ng mga damit, sapatos, bags, at kung anu-ano pa. Ramdam ng Lee Plaza ang galak na ating nararamdaman sa tuwing magkakaroon tayo ng bagong damit o kaya naman ay isang pares ng sapatos man lang. Kaya naman hindi sila nag atubili na maglagay ng department store para sa mga produktong mura at dekalidad na kahihiligan ninyo! With the wide array of complete and good quality products, talaga namang lahat ng kailangan mo ay nandito.

BeamAndGo_Lee Plaza_school supplies

Mahaba ang pila kasi sikat na sikat ang Lee Plaza! Lalo na kapag back to school season. Checkout their prizes, tiyak na makakatipid kayo!

At dahil pasukan na, tara na sa Lee Plaza! They offer SCHOOL SUPPLIES na kukumpleto sa balik-eskwela preparations ni Ate, Kuya, at Bunso. Lee plaza department store has wide space for school supplies like backpacks, notebooks, school shoes and uniforms, and many more!

Kaya naman kung hanap mo ay gamit pang personal, sa bahay, o sa eskwela, aba ay sa Lee Plaza dapat pumunta!

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!

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.

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.
