OFW Shopping Advice: Saan ang takbuhan ng pamilyang TARLAQUEÑO pagdating sa abot-kayang bilihin?

SALE! SALE! SALE!
DISCOUNT
BAGSAK PRESYO

Pagdating sa pamimili, metikuloso tayong mga Pinoy. Kung saan may PROMO at mas makakamura, tiyak na ‘dun ang punta!

Sa hirap nga naman kasing kitain ng pera, tipid kung tipid sa pag-gasta! Lalo na kung ang nagpo-provide, iyong pinipiling mangibang bansa alang-alang sa mas malaking kita.

Kaya nga marami ang dumadayo pa sa Divisoria at Baclaran, lalo na kung bultuhan ang pamimili! Pero kung nasa probinsya ka, hindi praktikal na dumayo pa sa Maynila para lang makamura! Pamasahe pa lang, talong talo ka na.

Buti na lamang, may mga pamilihan na tiyak na SWAK SA BULSA ang mga bilihin! At para sa mga Tarlaqueño, iisa lang ang kilala sa ganyan – ang Magic Star Mall!

“A decent place to do shopping. Prices mostly lower than competitors” – Jeuel Sapad

 

 

 

Isa sa maipagmamalaki ng Magic Star Supermarket ang hindi mapagkakailang baba ng presyo ng bilihin sa kanila kumpara sa ibang pamilihan. Most of the items, below suggested retail price (SRP) mong mabibili – and who wouldn’t want to SAVE BIG, ‘di ba? Hindi ka magkakamaling dito ka namili!

No  need for Balikbayan box! Loved ones mo na mismo ang makakapamili ng gusto nilang imported grocery items!

Kung gusto mo namang bilhan ng branded at imported na groceries ang pamilya, hindi na kailangang magpadala ng balikbayan box dahil may sariling section ang Magic Star Supermarket para d’yan!

Your community mall.
Matatagpuan ang Magic Star Mall Main malapit sa pamahayan, public market, paaralan, at simbahan tulad ng Tarlac State University at ng Tarlac Cathedral. Daanan rin ito ng mga pampasaherong jeep kaya napakadaling puntahan ng mga mamimili. Isa lamang ‘yang patunay na para sa masa, presyong pang-masa ang binabalik-balikan ng mamayan dito!

OFW Read: Bisitahin ang pinakaBARATONG pamilihan sa GENSAN, MARBEL, at ZAMBOANGA!

Nakakalungkot mang isipin, pero alam nating kaya pinipiling umalis ng bansa ng minamahal natin sa buhay, ay para sa ikabubuti ng mga naiiwan sa Pinas.

20170111-naia-ofw-airport-2.jpg

Photo by | ABS-CBN News

Sa likod nito, magandang buhay nga ang natatamasa ng pamilya sa Pinas, ngunit ang nangungulila sa ibang bansa, wala na ring itinitira sa sarili para makapagpadala – kahit walang kasiguraduhan sa kinahihinatnan ng pinaghihirapang pera sa oras na maipadala na ito.

Kaya’t pagdating sa pamimili ng mga pangangailangan ng pamilya, dapat dun na sa PINAKA!

PINAKA-dekalidad…
PINAKA-kumpleto…
PINAKA-sariwa…
PINAKA-BARATO!

Here are the three most vital concept in the shopping and retail today:

1. Modern

2. Shopping

3. Experience

Pero kapag sinabing moderno, karaniwang maiisip ng mga tao ay ang naglalakihang mall sa Makati o Taguig – sosyal, imported ang mga paninda, malinis, luxurious, and of course, mamahalin  ang mga bilihin!

Mapapangisi na lang ang mga tubong Mindanao at masasabing, “Subukan ninyong bisitahin ang KCC Malls namin.

img_8688

May digital numbering system ang Payment Center sa KCC Malls! Air conditioned pa ‘yan at may available na upuan para sa kumportableng customer assistance – hindi mo basta-bastang makikita sa iba!

Nang mabalitaan ng BeamAndGo na ito ang numero unong puntahan ng pamilyang Pilipino sa South Central Mindanao, hindi namin napigilang maintriga! Kaya’t agad-agad ay lumipad kami pa-General Santos City para kami mismo ang makahusga kung totoo ang aming nabalitaan.

Anong natuklasan namin? Keep reading…

First stop – KCC SUPERMARKET

OFW SHOPPING ADVICE: Saan sa Isabela nga ba laging namimili ang inyong pamilya?

Employer abuse…
Contract switching…
Mag-isang nagkakasakit…
Utang…

Ilan lang ‘yan sa araw araw na suliranin na kinahaharap ng Overseas Filipino Workers  sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo. Bukod pa d’yan ang alalahanin kung sa tama ba napupunta ang perang katas ng dugo’t pawis nila once na maipadala na nila ito sa kanilang pamilya sa Pinas.

Ito ang pangunahing problema ng ating mga Kabayan na layuning tugunan ng BeamAndGo sa pamamagitan ng Talavera Supermarket/ Hypermart gift certificates.

IMG_0085

Friendly Talavera Supermarket crew are always ready to assist BEAMers with their smiling faces.

Beginning 1977, Talavera Supermarket has been a humble neighborhood store catering to the people of Cauayan City and neighboring towns. Almost 50 years later, it has grown into a multi-million business venturing in retailing and wholesaling, providing complete selections of the cheapest but quality items for Isabelino families’ grocery needs. In short, ito na ang naging takbuhan ng mamamayan ng Isabela when it comes to grocery shopping!

Talavera Supermarket eventually became the number 1 preference of Isabelinos when it comes to grocery shopping, as well as a medium to help their own community. They started venturing on different advocacies, hosting events for all ages, and supporting numerous campaigns and programs for the betterment of specific sectors in Isabela community.

Hindi ba’t nakakalambot ng puso na sa simpleng pag-bili mo lamang ng iyong pang-araw araw na pangangailangan ay parte nito ang napupunta sa mabuti at nakatutulong sa kapwa mo Isabelino?

Isabelino shoppers do not only appreciate how much accommodating their crew is, but also the variations of food selections easily available at Talavera Supermarket!

IMG_0216

Maasahang fresh at tama sa timbang ang mabibiling karne dito sa Talavera Supermarket.

Sa “Kusina sa Talavera”, kumpletos rekados ang pan-sahog ng pamilya sa ano mang putaheng Pinoy ang nanaisin nilang ihain. Kaliwa’t kanan, makikita ang kumpletong panlasa sa paborito nilang ulam.

Siguradong hindi magugutom ang inyong pamilya dahil dito sa Talavera Supermarket, mapa anong klase ng karne o isda, prutas o gulay, pang-rekado o sahog, lahat kumpleto!

Hindi na kailangan pang magpalipat-lipat ng pamilihan para lang mabili lahat ng kailangan sa iluluto tuwing karaniwang araw man o may handaan, dahil tanaw na tanaw ng inyong mga mata ang maayos na nakahilerang pagkain at sangkap. Ituturo na lang o dadamputin, isa-isa’y mache-checkan lahat ng nasa iyong listahan!

IMG_0176

Lahat ng hanap mo para sa ano mang putaheng Pinoy, available at sariwa sa Talavera Supermarket!

At dahil mahalaga ka sa BeamAndGo, ipaaalala muli namin sa iyo ang dapat laging tandaan tuwing mamimili.

Be a smart shopper and wais Kabayan with these shopping tips:

  1. Always make a shopping checklist. Tulad ng lagi naming pinapaalala, iyong mga kailangan lamang talaga ang dapat na ipamili. Kung walang listahan, there will surely be a tendency to just grab anything you see that you instantly think you need even if you really don’t. Avoid impulse buying. Stick to your list!
  2. Make sure to buy vegetables and fruits you plan to eat. Mabilis masira ang gulay at prutas kahit na ilagay pa ito sa refrigerator kaya mas mainam na mamili ng siguradong maihahain sa loob lamang ng ilang araw para makaiwas sa pagtatapon ng hindi na mapakikinabangan.
  3. Look closely at the price tag. Maging mapili sa pamimili dahil may mga items na mura na, kasing-kalidad pa ng mamahaling bilihin. Huwag magpapalinlang sa presyo!
  4. Buy at your community’s most trusted supermarket. Excellent customer experience ang isa sa pinaka dahilan kung bakit binabalik-balikan ang pamilihan kaya mas may kasiguraduhan ka sa pinaka-paborito ng mamamayan.

IMG_0192.JPG

SALE SALE SALE kahit na sa home furnitures!

Syempre hindi lang personal care o pagkain ang maipagmamalaki ng Talavera Supermarket dahil maaari ring makabili ang pamilya ng home furnitures sa discounted na presyo! Kahoy, marmol, bakal, stainless, o glass man ang yari, may pagpipiliin ka!

Kaya naman BEAMer, ‘wag nang pahirapan ang pamilya sa Isabela sa pamimili ng grocery needs nila. Grocery remit na and send them Talavera Supermarket gift certificates sa halagang Php 500 up to Php 12,000.

Your family may redeem their GCs at the following TALAVERA SUPERMARKET/ HYPERMART branches in Isabela:

Kadto ta sa Iloilo Supermart! Bonding ideas para sa mga kapwa OFW

Marami rin ang lalaking OFW. Yun nga lang iba siyempre ang kadalasang trabaho nila. Sa maraming mga lalaking Ilonggo, isa na sa pinakamadalas na trabaho ang pagiging marino. Ibang klaseng pakikipagsapalaran sa malalayong lugar at wala kang ibang makita kundi barko ninyo at ang parang walang katapusang dagat. Tubig lang sa kaliwa, sa kanan, sa harapan, at sa likuran. Iyan ang buhay marino at sa araw-araw, alam mong miss na miss mo na ang asawa mo at ang mga anak mo.

Ang ilan sa kanila, nilalabas ang lungkot sa Dondi Acuesta.jpgpagpunta parati sa gym kung may gym ang barko. Kung wala, jogging na lang nang katakut-takot. Ganyan talaga habang nasa laot at habang malayo sa pamilya.

Kapag nakarating na sa Pilipinas uli, aba, gimik na! Shopping na! Ilabas na ang lahat ng frustration na hindi kasama ang pamilya.

Start Now: Provide for your family’s basic needs! Click here to choose from BeamAndGo’s wide range of supermarket partners.

Ganyan si Captain Dondi Acuesta. More than 29 years in service bilang isang marino na nagdadala ng tanker vessel sa iba’t-ibang lugar – Sweden, Germany, Norway, at sa iba pang lugar sa Europa. Galing no? Pero kung tatanungin ninyo siya, ano ang sasabihin niyang mas gusto niyang gawin?

Mas gugustuhin niyang pumunta ng Iloilo Supermart kasama ang asawang si Agnes na 26 years na in service sa government. Ngayon naman, siya ay isang School Registrar sa Iloilo State College of Fisheries.

Malalaki na ang mga anak nila. Si Tom ay isang Creative Professional sa BeamAndGo, si Pearl ay isang account manager ng isang fashion styling company, si Ereka ay nag-aaral ng Culinary Arts sa College of St. Benilde, at si Doneza, aba, first year proper na sa med school.

IMG_5035.JPG

Bili na! The family can’t wait!

Hindi biro ang makapagpalaki ng ganyan. Hindi rin biro ang buwan-buwan mo silang hindi kasama at hindi nakikitang lumaki. Kaya nga sobrang halaga ng mga bonding moment sa mga lugar na tulad ng Iloilo Supermart. Sa sandaling panahong iyon, bawing-bawi na ang mga panahon ng pangungulila.

Kuha na ng BeamAndGo GC para sa Iloilo Supermart!

Halimbawa, to celebrate, gawa na ng spaghetti! O kaya pangahasang gumawa ng La Paz batchoy sa bahay. At para maganda, kailangang bumili ng sariwang karne at iba pang mga sahog. Alam ninyo naman, kung hindi sariwa, iba ang lasa. Swerte lang at sigurado kang sariwa lahat sa Iloilo Supermart. Malapit na sa bahay, maaliwalas pa, masarap pa ang mga benta.

Gusto mo mas mag-manage ng iyong finances?

Tumingin lang dito.

Puro good time na lang ba?

Family bonding e pero paano ba maging good parent sa loob ng isang supermarket? Kasama sa mga pagsubok nina Dondi at Agnes ang maituro sa mga anak nila ang tamang paggamit ng pera. Sabi nga ng matatanda: Hindi iyan tumutubo sa puno.

Idea 1: Compare prices. With a place like Iloilo Supermart, you don’t just have one brand of spaghetti sauce. Look at all the varieties available. Tapos, isipin mo: Ako ba ay sobrang walang oras o tinatamad na hindi ko kayang maggisa at maghalo ng tomato sauce at giniling na karne at keso? Baka mas marami kang magawa at mapakain kung sa halip na ready-made ang bibilhin mo, ikaw mismo ang magluto.

Idea 2: Learn to window shop for future planning. Ano kamo? Walay ka pang kwarta kaya tingin lang muna. Tignan mo kung anu-ano kaya ang magandang ihanda. Halimbawa, para sa isang darating na birthday. Baka may gusto kang panregalo. May pera ka na ba? Baka kailangan mong mag-ipon. So, ipon muna! Ganyan din kasi ang turo nina Dondi at Agnes sa mga anak: Kung wala ka pang pera, wag manghingi. Pag-ipunan mo ang gusto mo. Kung birthday mo, puede ka sigurong manghingi pero kung hindi, sariling kayod, di ba, anak?

IMG_5044.JPG

Ito kaya? O ito? Ay magugustuhan nila ito!

Idea 3: Don’t give too much allowance. Kids, don’t ask for too much allowance. Yung tipong sakto lang. Ano ba ang kailangang pera sa school para makakain? Yun naman dapat ang allowance e. Kung may gusto ka, save 10% ng baon. So kung may PHP 1,000 per week, aba, dapat naman at least may matitirang PHP 100 sa dulo ng linggo. Isipin ninyo na lang, kung PHP 100 kada linggo, sa dulo ng isang taon, mayroong PHP 5,200 siguro ang isang bata. Hindi na biro iyon!

Idea 4: Andyan ang BeamAndGo. Gamit na ng mga digital gift certificate para siguradong mabantayan ang lahat ng gastos. Mas madaling mag-budget gamit ang mga GC ng BeamAndGo. Wala nang hassle, aalagaan ka pa nang todo sa Iloilo Supermart.

Madaling mag-manage ng gastos basta gamit ang mga GC.

Ganyan dapat ang mga magulang: Kailangang magturo magtipid at pahalagahan ang pera pero, kapag puede naman din, salu-salo na. Habang wala pang bagong lakad si Daddy sa kanyang barko, game na game na. Kain na muna lahat!

Punta na sa BeamAndGo website at pumili na ng gusto mong GC!

Staying with an OFW family in Iloilo City

Blog

Group picture of BeamAndGo and the Cartera family taken immediately after Ben shared his miraculous 34-year OFW story as a seaman.

The heritage rich city of Iloilo is located in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. Known for its “oohhh sooo yummy” Biscocho Haus Butterscotch and Chinese inspired Molo Soup, the city is also littered with traditional catholic churches dating back from the Spanish colonial era.

While much of its rich tradition has been kept preserved, the BeamAndGo team witnessed firsthand the city’s lightning speed infrastructure makeover with the acclaimed Iloilo International Airport and the Sta. Barbara Highway.

The very moment we hit the road from the airport, we were absolutely dumbfounded when we passed by the bustling 6-lane diversion highway on our way to the residence of one of our very own and Iloilo native, Vanessa Cartera, Director of Sales at BeamAndGo.

Vanessa, who hails from Iloilo and comes from a family of seamen, said it concisely: “Hindi dati ganito ang Iloilo. Times are changing. And I’m proud to be an Ilonggo.”

If you are wondering, BeamAndGo was one of 90 companies that participated at the PESO Office Mega Christmas Job Fair attended by 1,500 Ilonggos.

BeamAndGo poses with Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. and the PESO Office department. The province of Iloilo has long been known to be the world’s resource for seamen and nurses.

In recent years, the BPO industry has spurred growth in local employment. But this city is where the world gets its pool of seamen and nursing professionals. This is the reason why Governor Arthur Defensor Sr., and his PESO office team invited us to orient jobseekers about what we do for OFWs and encourage them to register here  for an account even before they set off for international placements.

But the best part of this trip is the story of Vanessa’s father Ben Cartera, a retired seaman who has had stints in Abu Dhabi, Sweden, and Norway. In his heyday, Ben told me his motivation was to build his dream house and provide education to his children.

After 34 years, he suffered a stroke that paralyzed half his body. It was painful for his family who depended on him for financial assistance. At that time, his daughter Vanessa was studying in a university in Metro Manila. She literally cut back on unnecessary expenses while the family dedicated most of their time to assist their ailing dad.

With tears in his eyes, Ben recounted the times he had to be away from his family during important celebrations such as Christmas and graduation. Thankfully, he has now recovered after years of rehabilitation and physical therapy to restore his facial and body movement. He credits his loving and supportive family who stood by him in his most difficult state.

While I was savoring the home-cooked Molo soup, I couldn’t help but cringe and imagine the thousands of Filipinos who have similar stories demonstrating the Filipino spirit of grit and determination to bounce back from tough times.

From groceries and medicine to insurance and payments of bills, BeamAndGo aims to instill in the mindset of OFWs the importance of covering the basics first. We tell our BeamAndGo friends through our LearnAndGo Workshop Series and daily reminders that their hard-earned income should be spent on the things that matter – health, insurance, food, and education.

And what makes it better? Iloilo Supermart is now an official partner of BeamAndGo.com. Ilonggo OFWs can now purchase digital gift certificates that they can use to buy groceries and medicine from the said supermarket!

The Cartera family displayed to us the famous Filipino warmth and hospitality but it is their story that touches us the most. It serves as an inspiration for us at BeamAndGo to champion our cause to empower OFWs like you. We hope it would impact you the same way it made an impact on us.

Good news for OFWs who want to be financially literate

BeamAndGo and TGFI

All smiles from BeamAndGo and TGFI at the Global Summit

As of late, the news coverage related to the OFW community has been negative.

  • “OFW who won $2.3 Million in Singapore lottery accused of stealing ticket”
  • “Bong Bong Marcos decries alleged “bullet-planting” of OFW”
  • “OFW Remittances faces Downward risk”

You might be asking, “Hasn’t there been any encouraging news or inspiring stories among OFWs?” After all, the old adage bad news sells is probably true. Journalists are often quick to report events and incidents that would ignite public outcry or strong opinions from politicians.

Well, there has been inspiring stories. Last Saturday, (Oct 24, 2015), The Global Filipino Investors (TGFI) organized a day long financial literacy event for OFWs in Singapore. The event was called Global Summit and it featured 10 finance experts sharing their wisdom with a full house of over 500 OFWs.

And thanks to the kindness of Floi Wycoco (TGFI CEO) and Malvin Dinlasan (TGFI Marketing Head), BeamAndGo had the opportunity to share our advocacy to promote alternative remittance for basic needs to the OFW community.

I have attended many investment forums but TGFI’s Global Summit provided the most content-rich program with a full range of relevant topics for OFWs: personal finance, business registration and taxes, real estate, mutual funds, and stock market investing.

My personal favorites included:

  • ANC News “On The Money” Host Salve Duplito’s warning for people to refuse the lies of investment scams. For more on her personal finance articles, Click here 
  • I-Remit Chairman Bansan Choa’s focus on the 3R’s: Real estate, Remittance, and Retirement
  • Suzan Bigay, my former finance professor at UA&P, who famously said “Our real asset is our creativity.” (Thanks Suzan, you are the reason why I am not so poor!)
  • Marvin Fausto’s Putting Eggs in Different Baskets – This man has raised a family of investors together with FQmom.com blogger Rose Fres Fausto.

I also found it mind boggling to discover from Salve Duplito that many OFWs do not plan on how their remitted funds are used. In a survey she presented, when asked the question “When your household receives money, do you plan how it will be used?”,a staggering 45% of the OFWs responded “no”!

At BeamAndGo, through our research, we also noted a lack of financial literacy amongst OFWs. And many wanted to learn but they just didn’t know how. So in September, we launched the LearnAndGo Financial Literacy Workshop Series with our first event held in Iriga City. Over 500 members of OFW families attended. And just this month, we partnered with the Mindanao Federation to conduct a financial literacy workshop in Hong Kong, which was attended by 250 OFWs. We have another event planned before the year and we’re setting up the schedule for 2016.

So while the news circulating related to OFWs has been rather gloomy of late, there are rays of sunshine around. At least in this blog and the TGFI community, we work together to provide the tools, knowledge and encouragement for Filipinos to become financially literate. We Filipinos are known to be resourceful, creative, hardworking and resilient. That is good news!
