As a Pinoy millenial, how do you manage your finances? 

Last August 30, I was invited by Real Talk, a station-produced show by CNN Philippines to talk about managing your money as a yuppie.

7 Easy Ways You Can Save Money As A Millenial


Saturday, June 04, 2016
I have dreams as grand and as special as the next Pinoy Millenial. Don't you have them also? 

You want to travel around the Philippines - and even travel the world. Exciting! 

But your income isn't even enough for you to travel comfortably to work everyday. Minsan, kelangan mo pa makipagsapalaran sa bus, MRT at LRT. 

You want to dine out and try the amazing food selections spanning the different countries. 

But your bank account says you can only afford fast food for now. Sabi nga nila, budget-tarian daw tayo. 

You want to live in a comfortable, posh and swoon-worthy apartment with its color schemes, satisfying patterns and vintage furniture that you personally arranged to be imported from exotic locations. 

But your money in your wallet is telling you that you don't have enough money to get by with this month's rent payment. 


1. Log out of Instagram at least twice a week 

Instagram is full of pretty pictures of gorgeous clothes, fantastic scenery and seemingly perfect lives of seemingly perfect people.
