EVENT: First Philippine eCommerce Expo


The First Philippine eCommerce Expo, the first and the biggest annual gathering of eCommerce service providers, online sellers, auctioneers, and traders in the Philippines! This will be on November 29-30, 2008 at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay, Philippines.

For the first time, the eComEx will bring together the biggest names in the eCommerce industry and set them alongside online merchants of all shapes and sizes, to expand and tighten the eCommerce network, and allow online sellers to navigate, connect, exchange ideas, share experiences, gain knowledge, and promote their products or services.

The eComEx promises to link you to your market and serve as your virtual gateway to the general public. More than just being a venue for trade and interaction, eComEx can become your most effective platform in furthering awareness of eCommerce in the Philippines.

Through exposure in the quad-media, eComEx intends to erase myths and false beliefs about digital trade. It ultimately aims to make eCommerce a lifestyle for all Filipinos.

This series of event is brought to you by the Powerbooks, IdeaAdvocate, GMB Franchise Developers and Globe.


This is a book on franchising that “will matter” to everyone involved in franchising and to those interested in franchising. A reader friendly book that uses layman’s terms and with a section on explanation of terminologies used in the franchising world.

Since franchising is a unique business relationship, the book objectively discusses areas of franchising that all parties in the relationship should consider. Discussion takes the macro perspective rather than the subjective perspective of the franchisor or the franchisee. Contents of the book are based on internationally accepted principles of franchising and the “Franchise Guru’s” 31 years experience in the field of franchising.

The book is an attempt to further the author’s goal of advocating responsible franchising. This is with the realization that understanding and pursuing the proper route of franchising is the only way to its sustainability and growth. With this book, the author hopes that more and more people will derive immeasurable benefits that franchising offers. These advantages are realities worldwide and they are there for the taking if only the proper route is taken.

Think positive!

Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.

Keep your words positive, because your words become your actions.


Keep your actions positive, because your actions become your habits.


Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your lifestyle.


Keep your lifestyle positive, because your lifestyle becomes your destiny.



We have to pay attention of what we say specially for our children. I remember a friend who said: "Oh my son? We are intending to save for his fines/payment for penalty for he is so naughty and hard-headed." After telling that, his son pushed a kid and arm was injured that he needs to send to the orthopedic hospital.


Sometimes we don't pay attention on what we think, say or do. Out of a mere joke, we say something negative, but do you know that we have power? We have energy and the mere words that we say will magnify, will send waves to the air and attracts whatever you say.


It is unfortunate that the news media and TV are venue of bad news. Most of the time, these words are always being used: economic depression, economic recession, economic crisis, economic down turn, market crash, foreclosure, down size, lay off, etc.


I believe that the new President-elect Barack Obama will improve the economic status of America and as a global leader it has a domino effect worldwide.


This blog is a reminder for me, for you, for all of us to check up on our thoughts, our words, our actions, our habits, our lifestyles.


Let us keep a happy memory. Let's go of the past bad memories and shout AHHHH and from then on move on! Think positive. Think abundance. Think of our goals to win the race of life.


The change or improvement must begin with me, with you and the world will change enormously.

Start our day by…

Dive at Bacon Beach, Sorsogon, Bicol, Philippines!

Start our day by…


“I will greet this day with love in my heart.

I will persist until I succeed.

I am nature’s greatest miracle.

I will live this day as if it is my last.

Today, I will be master of my emotions.

I will laugh at the world.

Today, I will multiply my value a hundredfold.

I will act now!”

- Og Mandino


I am so inspired reading this message of Og Mandino.

If we really want our day to be bright and meaningful, let us recite these positive statements.
