Quiet No More

"Oh my! This weblog went quiet for how long!?" 
"Whaaat, 3 years?"

Admittedly that's true and we apologize. This site was up for some time in 2015. Obviously our last post was February 2015, geez! Three years and four months in between then and now. It has published the journal of a simple lady but typical 8-to-5 employee in the Philippines. She's the Water Sprite. The main topic was about personal finance management, investment finds, opinions, and a little bit of Water Sprite lifestyle. It will always be that way and we commit to our mission-vision statement.

How the Law of Attraction Drives This Working Pinay Into Sharing Stories of Investing

A while back, and a couple of weeks before Valentine's Day, the Water Sprite was very busy attending to her responsibilities as a full time employee, which means wearing the 'hat' most of her circles in the physical world used to see in her. There were paper works she needed to accomplish, and because sometimes she couldn't act like the 'goddess' she ought to at work, the effect of procrastination and time mismanagement got in her way as she was cramming, grasping the last minute syndrome to meet the deadline. That is why there was a relatively long silence here at the CPGI (Cute Pinay Goes Investing) blog during that period. Then both pessimism and doubt tried to lodge on her head too; on how to pursue the CPGI brand and acquire more popularity of this blog site, after being in the cyber space for about 3 months already.

Maalam Sa Pera Ang Pinoy (Kilalanin ang Isang Engineer na Nagsimulang Mag-invest sa Edad na 24)

Ano ba ang larawan ng pangkalahatang pamilyang Pilipino? Ito ba ay larawan ng pagdarahop at kakaunting options sa buhay? Napapansin mo ba na iilan lamang ang masasabing nakakaalwan na para bang hindi patas ang tadhana na isinilang kang pangkaraniwang Pinoy lamang? At bakit ka kaya napadaan dito sa site na Cute Pinay Goes Investing? Malamang ay tulad ni Water Sprite, isa ka rin sa mga ordinaryong Pinay (o Pinoy) na kailangan munang magtrabaho para mabuhay... subalit nakakasilip ng liwanag at sa di kalaunan, matatamo n'ya rin ang buhay na maalwan, ganap, at malaya.

Valentine's Day!! And Investing?

Hello all. I am not the Cute Pinay, she asked me to do a guest post for her because she is very busy right now and my subject is Valentine's Day and Investing. My first reaction to my assignment was WTF? What does Valentine's Day have to do with investing, but with much thought and remembering posts here on other subjects that the Cute Pinay has discussed here like water usage and transportation I have come up with a few thoughts on money and Valentine's Day and saving money.

What's Up Wednesdays Series #4

The Water Sprite this week was just very busy in her "other world" that's why no new article was issued after Maalam sa Pera ang Pinoy launching. But here are few developments in this site:

Simple Living Checklist For A Working Pinay: On Water and Electric Power Consumption

Blame it to Michael Faraday who invented the first electric motor, almost 200 years ago, that electricity now became the most important commodity worldwide. It has remained ubiquitous in household, offices, and industries. People who got used to consuming it could not imagine how life would be without it; and then with services arising through the use of electricity, such as the provision of water flowing though pipes, it made our lives even more comfortable.

What's Up Wednesdays Series #3

Here goes the WUW this week:
  • The site's Marketplace is up. The Water sprite hopes that you see stuff that suits your interest. Initially, we just got items from Krystynized Jewels. They sell beautiful and most precious jewelries that you will love. The Water Sprite still looks forward to some other friends to show their merchandize here.

Maalam Sa Pera Ang Pinoy (Tampok ang Isang 22 Anyos na Independent Contractor)

Sa pagkakataong ito, hindi ko muna ibibida si Water Sprite. Alam mo ba kung bakit? Inilulunsad dito ngayon ang kauna-unahang serye ng bahagi ng blog na ito, ang Maalam Sa Pera Ang Pinoy series. Kung kaya't mapalad tayong napaunlakan ng isa nating kababayan ang imbitasyon ko na panayam. Siya ay napili ng inyong lingkod mula sa isang closed group ng Facebook, ang Filipino Financial Freedom Forum. Kilalanin natin si Gab, 22 taong gulang at isang Freelance Administrative Support/Software Developer. Kahanga-hangang sa ganyang edad ay maaga siyang namulat sa pag-iimpok ng salapi at nangahas na mag-invest. Si Gab ay nagtapos sa kolehiyo na may kursong Culinary Arts at siya'y binata pa.
