Filipinos in the US can begin signing up for GCash regardless of their SIM cards and start supporting their families back home by sending money for FREE (GCash to GCash), paying bills, and buying them prepaid load credits.
GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon said that they are also preparing for a full launch later this year.
Earlier this month, GCash received the green light from the BSP to start the initial launch of its overseas service which allowed Filipinos in Japan, Australia, and Italy to use GCas...

Dili lalim ang gina-agian nato karon hilabina nga panahon sa pandemya. Apan kinahanglan pud siguro nato matagaan ug bili ang mga negosyo nga padayon lang gihapon sa pagserbisyo. Isa na diha ang BDO.
Galanog-lanog ang pag-dayeg sa BDO karong mga panahuna. Ang BDO bank ang pinakadakong bangko sa tibuok Pilipina. Daghang financial ug banking solutions alang sa mga Pilipino ug langyaw nga naa diri sa atong nasud ang gina-offer sa BDO.
Kung inyong namatikdan, gihupot na sa BDO ang kanhing One Network Bank nga ubay-ubay pud ang mga branches sa tibuok nasud. Paspas gyud ang pagtubo sa BDO. Good news ni siya hilabina kay mas daghan na pud dayon ang maserbisyohan sa maong bangko bisan pa naay pandemya.
Susama na lamang sa pagpadayon sa serbisyo sa maong bangko bisan pa nagkadaghan ang m...
Ubay-ubay na pud ang mga nabiktima sa mga "loan payment scammers." Mao ni sila ang mga magpaila nga kuno konektado sila sa mga bangko or lending organizations ug kuno makatabang sila aron mapadali ang pag-proseso sa mga loans. Apan ang mga payments o bayad kay mupaadto na man hinuon sa scammer ug dili sa bangko o lender.
Pildeha ang mga "loan payment scammers" pinaagi sa mga nagsunod:
Pagbayad lang kanunay sa angay nga bank channels
Lakip niini ang over the counter sa branch sa imong bangko o dili ba kaha automatic debit arrangement. Buhata kini para sa imong car loans, home loans o business loans.
I-maximize ang auto debit payments
Pangutana lamang sa imohang bangko mahitungod sa auto debit payment kay kini ang pinaka-secure ug kombenyente nga option. Sa BDO pananglitan,...
Now this is something that's near and dear to my heart especially since I was an overseas Filipino worker myself. Sending money back home was one of my regular tasks and I've always wondered if there was an easy way for me to send money without the need for an international bank account or the need to pay steep rates. Wouldn't it be extra convenient if an OFW can use his or her phone and a local digital platform to send money?
Now, it's easier for OFWs or Filipinos abroad to pay for government fees and for their family's utility bills back home with the help of PayMaya!
PayMaya opened this service for Filipinos overseas so they can now use their Philippine mobile SIM on roaming to register for a PayMaya account, allowing them to perform transactions such as paying government dues or...
Coke has a new manufacturing plant in the Philippines and it's located in Mindanao! Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines, Inc.

The new RGB line has a greater production capacity—further improving on the Company’s service to its customers and contributing to the bid to spur local and national economic recovery.

Digital financial services leader PayMaya is leading the charge toward financial inclusion as it expands its footprint to reach over 200,000 touchpoints nationwide, the largest network in the country to date.
Filipinos can easily pay, add money, cash out, or remit using their PayMaya accounts through these accessible touchpoints that include convenience stores, retail merchants, groceries, department stores, food outlets, pawnshops, and Smart Padala centers, among others.

The location of the Philippines in the Pacific has always made the country vulnerable to strong typhoons. About 20 typhoons pass through the Philippine Area of Responsibility annually, about 8-to-9 of which make landfall. However, over the past years, climate change has brought more violent storms to the country, causing severe damage to lives and properties.
While resilient infrastructure and disaster preparedness are important during severe weather conditions, nature-based solutions such as rainforestation and watershed conservation also play a vital role in mitigating the adverse effects of these natural phenomena.
The Philippines continues to experience the rapid decrease of its primary rainforests from 70% forest cover in the 1990s to only less than 1.8% to date. This rate of e...

Are you among the hirna ride-hailing app users in Davao, Butuan, Iloilo and Bacolod? I have fantastic news for you! Digital financial services leader PayMaya is partnering with hirna and its partner-taxi drivers so that the latter can accept cashless payments in accordance with the government's directive to promote a safer and more convenient commute for the riding public.
Soon, users of the hirna ride-hailing app can book rides and pay using PayMaya QR and do away with the need to pay their fares using cash, which is seen to aiding the spread of the virus causing the COVID-19 disease.

Bukidnon, considered the food basket of Mindanao, will soon see double-decker buses, akin to the iconic red ones you see plying the streets of London. Pabama Transport, a Kibawe-based bus liner, will soon introduce their brand new fleet of double-decker buses which will ply the Bukidnon to Cagayan de Oro and CDO to Bukidnon route.
If you recall, Pabama is the same bus company that introduced units equipped with tablets, trays and cup holders. It looks like they're really ramping up their game.
The new Pabama Bukidnon double-decker buses are manufactured by ZhongTong, one of China's largest bus manufacturing companies, and have 420 HP Engines Euro 4's.
As you can see in the photos, the buses are airconditioned and have water dispensers, comfortable cushioned seats, comf...
If there’s something that I absolutely have so much respect for, it’s a risk taker. I think it takes a whole lot of intestinal fortitude to enter the great unknown, with just your passion, vision and optimism. That’s why when I first heard that a small group of folks in Cagayan de Oro wanted to offer a local lifestyle discount and rewards card that aimed to gather brands that we’re all very familiar with, I wanted to know more. See, ordinarily, whenever we encounter a loyalty or discount card, it’s only for one brand. With ACCESS Lifestyle Card, however, you receive awesome benefits from over 60 establishments (and that number’s growing!).
ACCESS Lifestyle Card is the first card of its kind in CDO. Not only do you get to avail of amazing discounts from partner-establishments, you also r...
How fast time flies! It's been more than 5 years since I got invited to attend the grand launch of one of Cebu's finest hotels - Quest Cebu Hotel and Conference Center.

You can read all about my Quest Hotel Cebu hotel review here.
Meanwhile, I have good news! If you represent government agencies or private corporations in Cagayan de Oro or in neighboring areas, you can learn more about Quest Hotel during the Travel Exchange B2B Event on February 22, 2018. Organized by the Cagayan de Oro Hotel and Restaurant Association, the Cagayan Travel Exchange event will be held at Limketkai Luxe Hotel....

(This article first appeared on my regular newspaper column on Gold Star Daily, Mindanao's largest newspaper. My column, dubbed "Mindanaoan Meets World," appears every Friday).
Everyone’s so excited about the impending opening of S&R Membership Shopping at Zone 5, Kauswagan Highway, Cagayan de Oro that it’s practically the talk of the town. I mean, there’s really good reason. After all, S&R CDO sits on a massive property, has a parking space good for a little over 300 vehicles, a tire center where members can have their tires fixed and replaced for free, lots of quality imported goods all at amazingly low prices, lots of buy 1 take 1 deals, freshly delivered quality meats (they have steaks!), freshly made breads and cakes (anybody up for cheesecakes?) and of course, churros, ice...
Last July, I was in Manila to personally witness Globe Telecom executives announce the company's partnerships with some of the world's biggest brands - Netflix, Disney, Astro, Sports Illustrated, Smule, Cartoon Network - as well as the birth of Globe Studios and Globe Live. I was already very impressed then (especially since I'm a longtime Globe subscriber). Just a few days ago, however, I became even more impressed when Globe Telecom again proved that they truly are the leader in digital content through their latest collaborations.
At Globe’s 11th quarterly media event dubbed "Wonderful World with Globe" or "WWG11," the company announced its latest milestones and events for the quarter:
- activation of more 700 MHz cell sites that registered speeds of up to 80 mbps during rush hour
