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!

Why Prince Hypermart brings Joy to Filipinos?

When you say supermarket in Visayas and Mindanao, the first thing on your list will surely be Prince Hypermart. One of their goals is to make their customers happy and satisfied. 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!

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! Sa slogan pa lang na “ Barato ug Kumpleto, Serbisyo Garantisado pa”, aba ay makakasiguro ka na hindi sa disgrasya mapupunta ang iyong pera padala!

Siguraduhin na bago magtungo sa Prince Hypermart ay nakahanda na ang listahan ng mga grocery items na kukunin sa supermarket upang produktong dekalidad ang sa iyo ay mapunta.

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.

OFW Shopping Advice: Why Batangueños love this supermarket and department store!

Batangas is one of the lovely and peaceful provinces in Luzon, kaya naman hindi na nakakapagtaka kung bakit maraming turista ang  bumibisita rito. Sa dalawang milyong Pilipino na naninirahan sa Batangas, 25% of them ay Overseas Filipino Workers na nakikipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa para sa kanilang mga pamilya.

Marami sa ating mga kababayan abroad, nasa Batangas ang pamilya. Halos lahat sa kanila ay nagpapadala para sa grocery needs ng mga ito. At dahil marami ang nagrerequest na mga Batangueños na magkaroon ng BeamAndGo sa kanilang lugar, happy kami na isa na ang Citimart sa mga trusted supermarkets namin.

At kahit wala silang hinihinging kapalit sa pagpapalaki at pag-alaga nila sa atin, this Christmas is the perfect time to give back! Here are 6 practical and affordable gift ideas for mom and dad:

1. Christmas Cards

Christmas is a great opportunity to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us — ‘wag nating palampasin ang pagkakataong ito! Buy a Christmas card from the nearest bookstore or make your own! Ang mahalaga naman ay masabi mo ang gusto mong sabihin. Hindi kailangang mamahalin ang iyong regalo. It’s the perfect time to thank our parents for all they have done for us. Siguradong marami na ang kanilang naisakripisyo para sa atin. No material gift can replace a simple “thank you” and “I love you” written on a card they can keep forever.

This might be the cheapest yet most meaningful gift you can give your parents. Uso na ngayon ang e-mail, texts, at Facebook wall posts, but nothing can compare to an old-fashioned handwritten letter.

2. Bagong Damit

As you grew up, your parents bought you countless clothes. Ngayong Pasko, bumawi naman tayo!

Maong jeans, belt, at shoes, ang ilan sa mga praktikal na regalo para kay daddy. Lagi niyang magagamit ang mga bagay na ito at pwedeng ulit-ulitin. Make sure to choose something with good quality pero affordable pa rin!

Para naman kay mommy, a classic blouse or dress, bag, at sandals. Syempre dapat favorite color niya ang piliin mo!

3. Care Packages

Minsan nakakalimutan ng ating magulang na alagaan ang sarili nila. They have always been putting us first. Giving them a care package containing different health and wellness products would remind them na hindi nila dapat kalimutan ang sarili nila. We want them to be happy and healthy, ‘di ba?

Some care products you can consider to include are bath essentials, vitamins and health supplements. Pwede kang mamili ng mga paborito nilang ginagamit sa katawan o kung ano sa tingin mo ang magugustuhan nila. There are ready-made packages you can find sa mall. Para mas mapadali ang pagpapadala sa iyo, meron din tayo niyan sa BeamAndGo!

4. Pang-exercise

Enough exercise is essential to stay healthy as we grow older. Kaya naman, magandang idea ang bigyan ang ating mga magulang ng regalong makakatulong sa kanilang pag-exercise.

Kay papa, bagong bola ng basketball o jersey. Ok ‘to para yayain niya ulit ang kanyang mga kaibigan para mag-basketball, just like the good old days! Matibay na running shoes o badminton racket naman for mama. Giving your parents these items will give them more reason to exercise and become healthier. Isama mo rin silang magjogging tuwing umaga ngayong Pasko! Presko naman ang hangin kaya maganda itong bonding experience para sa buong family this season.

5. BeamAndGo Supermarket GCs

Syempre hindi natin makakalimutan ang BeamAndGo Supermarket GCs! It’s a practical gift, not just for parents but for anyone.

OFW Shopping Advice: ‘Wag mong bilhin yan!

Bilang isang OFW, ikaw nga ay nagpapadala ng Supermarket GCs using BeamAndGo, pero sinisigurado mo ba na nagagamit ito sa wastong mga bilihin? Nararapat lang na ang maging wais tayo sa ating mga gastusin bilang OFW. Ilan lamang ito sa mga remittance advice at shopping tips on what not to buy and their alternatives when grocery shopping in a supermarket.

Gusto mo o kailangan mo?

Bago pa man pumunta sa supermarket, ugaliing gumawa ng listahan ng mga kailangan sa bahay. Siguraduhing ang nasa list mo ay ang inyong household needs at hindi wants. This is a good way to spend under your budget and make better buying decisions sa pag-grocery shopping. Pagdating sa supermarket, unahing bilhin ang mga nakasulat sa listahan. Kapag may sobra pa sa budget, saka kumuha ng ibang mga bagay na gustong bilhin. Avoid impulse buying. Don’t buy items that aren’t on your list or those that will go over your budget.

Kung kailangan mo pa ng mas maraming tips kung paano mag-budget, punta lang dito.

Maramihan o tingi?

Mas mabuting bumili in bulk (maramihan) para sa mga produktong matagal mag-expire. Kadalasan, mas napapamahal kapag bumibili ng patingi-tingi. Kung in bulk at isahan ang pagbili, makakatipid tayo sa presyo mismo ng produkto at sa effort at gastos ng pagpunta natin sa supermarkets. Para sa mga bagay na hindi nabubulok o matagal mag-expire, do buy in bulk. Halimbawa, kung may sobra pa sa budget mo, ‘wag lang isang soap bar ang bilhin mo, bilhin mo na ang pack of 6. Nakatipid ka na, hindi ka pa pabalik-balik sa Supermarket.

Pero kung ang bibilhin mo naman ay mabilis mag-expire, tulad ng gulay, prutas, karne, at iba pa, bumili lamang ng sakto para sa iyong pamilya para hindi ito masayang. Para sa mga bagay na nabubulok at/o mabilis mag-expire, do buy just enough.

Healthy o junk?

May iilan sa atin na nakasanayang kumain ng junk food araw-araw, kahit na alam nating hindi ito maganda para sa kalusugan. Okay lang namang mag-indulge paminsan-minsan — everything in moderation. Kaya lang, don’t buy junk food on a regular basis.

Regular price o sale?

Madaling masilaw sa mga items na on sale. Iniisip kasi nating makakatipid tayo kapag bumili tayo ng mga gamit na naka-promo, pero mas madalas tayong napapagastos dahil sa mga ito. Don’t buy items on sale, if you don’t really need it. Kung hindi naman talaga kailangan, mas mapapagastos ka pa kapag bumili ka ng naka-sale, lalo na kung hindi pa ito kasama sa inyong grocery list.

Generic o sikat?

Isa sa ating mga values bilang Pilipino ay ang pagiging loyal, kasama na dito ang pagiging loyal sa mga brands ng mga produktong ating nakasanayan. We trust these “household brands” dahil sanay na sanay na tayo sa brand na ito, pero palagi tayong may mahahanap na alternatibong mas mura at mas sulit. Don’t always buy products from big brands you’re used to. Once in a while, makabubuting sumubok ng mga bago o hindi gaanong sikat na produkto, kasama na dito ang mga generic brands ng mga supermarket. Karaniwang mas mura ang mga ito pero ganoon parin ka-epektibo.

Local o imported?

Iniisip kasi nating mas maganda ang quality ng imported products, pero sa katotohanan, pareho lang naman ‘yan! Minsan nga ay mas maganda pa ang mga produkto natin. Don’t buy imported products just because they are imported and do support local products. Kadalasan pa nga ay mas makakamura tayo, at makakatulong pa tayo sa negosyo ng ating mga kababayan kung bibili tayo ng gawang Pinoy.
