BDO Supports MSMEs

The Micro, small scale, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) are the most challenging hit sector during the pandemic, even if they account for more than 90% of enterprises. They are the backbone of the economy, as MSMEs employ more than 5.3M of our fellow Filipinos.  Governor Benjamin Diokno of the (BSP) Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas has stressed the urgency to help Micro Small Medium Enterprises to help sustain their businesses to continue to provide the best essential products and essential services to people each day.  THE OPPORTUNITY Small business owners can now sustain their business operations through the Kabuhayan Loan of BDO Network Bank (BDONB). The MSMEs operating for three years are now qualified to apply for a loan amounting between PHP 30,000 to PHP1 million. They can purchase the needed equipment, buy the required equipment or assets, increase their inventory of stocks, and expand their business in other locations.  A micro-enterprise owner Ernesto Abad, from Los Baños, Laguna

KDrama: 18 Again Review and Life Lessons

I started watching Kdrama a few years ago. It was influenced by my sister who is such a fan of Korean actors and I eventually got curious about it. It started with the trending Kdrama that time which I will write about later on. Initially, it was just a pastime because I really love binge watching tv series. Now, I found myself subscribed to Netlfix, Viu and other Kdrama platforms.

The first Kdrama that I will be reviewing here is 18 Again. The story is about a young college couple Jung Da Jung (Kim Ha-neul) and Hong Dae Yong (Yong Sang-hyoon) who was blessed with fraternal twins Hong Shi-ah (Roh Jeong-eui) and Hong Shi-woo (Ryeoun). Their marriage started to fall apart when Jung Da Jung thinks that her husband has been into alcohol and not realizing they have pressing problems other than alcohol. Hong Dae Yong wished for him to turn back so he could fix his life, and suddenly morphs himself into a teenager with a mind of a 37 year old. He began living his life like a teenager and made friends with his son in school and inspired his son to play basketball. He then learns what is happening with his twins in school. He also learned the reasons behind his wife’s reason for his divorce and slowly fixed his family by befriending his kids. All throughout the time Hong Dae Yong lived in the body of an 18 year old.

Life lessons from 18 Again:

1. Never stop dreaming. One day you will be able to reach your goal. Not even motherhood can stop you from reaching your dreams. 

2. Choose kindness even to those who don’t do good to you. You may never know what they are going through.

3. There will be someone in your life that will love you for who you are no matter how broken you can become. 

4. There will always be a reason why you choose a person who you want to spend the rest of your life with. Always remember why you chose each other when things go astray.

5. Communication will solve all the differences no matter how grave the problem is. 

This is one of the few Kdramas that kept me going on and literally finished 16 episodes in 3 days whilst my daily activities at home. This kdrama is a mixture of comedy and heavy drama as some episodes made me cry where Hong Dae Yong lived again as an 18 yr old teenager trying to patch up his relationship with his father.

I highly recommend this to everyone who is starting a family, going through rough times as we can learn a lot about it and will give us a lot of life lessons. 

This Kdrama series is available on Netflix.
