Doodling: It’s More Fun in the Philippines

When situations, school loads and others are stressing me terribly, I used doodle to ease the tension and to unwind. I’m not a pro and not even good in drawing. But there’s something on the strokes and coloring the cute creatures on the blank sheet of the doodle art that just simply alleviates my stress and calm my heart.I just can’t explain the feeling. All I feel is that when I color the doodle art, it makes me feel more relaxed.

When I’m so much stressed, I pour out my heart coloring doodle art. I told you, I’m not a pro. hihi

Doodling Art

But doodling was like an underrated form of art in the Philippines. Most of the time people labeled it as mere of hobby or just for a leisure time. That’s why I was overjoyed to hear that Titus Pens is holding a doodling art competition, Titus iDoodle on-the-spot Ballpen Art Competition Battle of the Champions. I was entirely excited to attend the event to find out what’s in store for the doodling art in the Philippines. 

Doodling: It’s More Fun in the Philippines

From a mere hobby,  doodling in the Philippines has grown into something – a more respectable form of art. The competition has showcased the talent of thousands young artists in the Philippines. I felt delighted to discover how rich our country with bulk of talented people.

There are groups like the Doodle Art Enthusiasts  that features the talents of doodlers in the country. The group also aim to inspire other people through this art and empower every doodler on their talent. If you have the heart on doodling, I encouraged you to be part of their group so you can get to know more with other people who have the same passion on doodling. 





Youngest contestant I met on the event. She’s just 8 years old! Very talented indeed.

The theme’s competition is about promoting the Philippines or showcasing why is it more fun in the Philippines. Here’s the best of the bests that caught my heart:



One of the best entries! One way to appreciate that talent of young Filipinos



Promoting the beauty of Cebu through doodling!

Before the time was up for the contestants, I was able to take a shot of some doodle arts of the participants.


Highlighting Filipino values!


The love that never binds the Filipino family


This is my favorite output that I saw on the competition. This is the mark and the heart of a Filipino!

I do hope that this kind of competition will continue for the coming years. Let’s us showcase and highlight what we have.  This is also the best way to maximize the talent of young artists in our country. The event will teach you 3 things:

1. Appreciate and love our own

Don’t overlook what’s literally in front of you. Appreciate our own. Our country has a lot to offer, innumerable places to visit, and sumptuous food and delicacies to try. (Read here: Love Local: Marikina’s Best – Food.Shoes.Places)


2. Maximize what you have

If you have the gift and talent, show it to the world. Flex it once in a while. Don’t make it jelly. Put your passion on it. (Read here: The Time is NOW!)

3. Connect to the right people

You can’t do it alone. You need people who will bring out the best in you and will tell that you can do it. Most of the time your fear subsides whenever you find people who have the same interest and passion like yours. Connect to their group and get to know them. Just be careful on what group you’ll join and people you’ll connect. Make sure they are the type of people who will unleash your potentials.  (Read here: While You’re Still Young and Amazing)

I salute the Star 360 and Titus Pens for uplifting the Filipino talents through this event. 


Best Advice from Robert Kiyosaki and Masters of Wealth

The key to wealth is being generous; the more you give, the more you receive. – Robert Kiyosaki

Being rich means giving back. If you just keep your money for you own, it is just useless. You need to have a driving force to reach out other people.

But being financially free is never an instant. It will cost you and demand something from you. And for you to get there, you need not only passion but also practice. Action sets the difference to make your dreams come true.


Robert Kiyosaki during his talk at the National Achievers Congress 2015 last November 30. (C) Rappler

During the Robert Kiyosaki Live in Manila last November 30 at SMX, Mall of Asia, the Masters of Wealth (MOW) including Robert Kiyosaki have shared advice, motivation, and insights to all the entrepreneur and businessmen who were there to witness the National Achievers Congress 2015 brought by Laurus Enterprise and Success Resources.

Here are the following advice coming from MOW:

Robert Tiopel, top international trainer, emphasized the importance of working smart and reminded the delegates to be authentic and remain who they are. From Tiopel:

1. Shift your mindset from working hard to working smart. 
Freedom will not come from working eight hours a day, but working smart and taking risk to embrace opportunities and venture new things.

2. If you have passion, you will do something no matter what
Not pursuing your passion is just so bad. Life is short not to do craft that you really love. Take away that fear and pursue your passion

Mario Singh, Asia’s No. 1 forex coach, followed after Foxx and discussed how forex works and how we can generate money through it. From Singh:

3. Success is a decision
Are you committed to succeed? It is in the moment of your decision that your destiny is being shaped. You have to decide to succeed!

4. System will set you apart from the other
Remember 97% of people fail because they don’t have system. Success is not about how good you are but how good the system is.


The No. 1 wealth coach, J.T. Foxx mentored entrepreneurs and shared the reasons why people fail like fear, procrastination, lack of funds. 

5. Results will always do the talking
It is not how much you say but how much you do.

6. You need an accountable partner
Who are going to be your pusher? Who are going to encourage you when you badly want to give up? Stop thinking you can do everything on your own


Foxx humoring the crowd during Robert Kiyosaki Live in Manila (c)Rappler

Foxx added that for you to succeed, you need these 4 keys:
1. Right Strategy
2. Right System
3. Right Information
4. Right Coach

Andrew Matthews, illustrator and international speaker first took the stage to emphasize how we can have a happy life – that happiness is never an accident; it is how you carry your situations in life.

7. Happiness is a choice
Happiness is how you respond to your situation. Happy people enjoy and embrace the problems. The joy is always on the challenge

8. You can do the impossible when you change your thoughts
Be positive and be grateful. Focus on what you currently have.

“You don’t find happiness in the absence of problems. You find happiness in spite of problems.” – Andrew Matthews

The leading authority in wealth creation online, Peng Joon  shared how we can maximize the internet to generate income.

9. People fail because of information overload
For you to avoid information overload, you have to create a step by step process. System matters!

10. The best investment is constant learning
Learning is priceless!

And the most-awaited speaker of the conference, the author of the bestselling book Rich Dad, Poor Dad was the last to give his insights.

11. People are poor because they are not taught to be a good entrepreneur.
Study things that will help you to be a good entrepreneur.

12.The reasons why poor people are poor is because they practice being poor
Act and practice like a successful and rich person

13. The best way to learn is by doing
Study. Practice. Apply

14. Study what will help you to be rich and successful
“If you want to be an employee, go to school. If you want to be rich, you don’t need school” – Kiyosaki. Study subjects like selling, marketing, advertising, public relations etc.

15. Buy assets first and let it pay your liabilities
You can buy your dream car if you work on your assets first and let it pay your dream car. Train your brain to get what you want.

16. You need a team
You can’t do it alone. Don’t hesitate to ask for help. 

If you want to be financially free, there are a lot of things you can try. Think like an entrepreneur and successful person. Sell product in the internet, go to forex, ebay, and amazon, build your business etc.


Masters of Wealth after the National Achievers Congress 2015 (c)Cashflow Club

Study things that will make you rich. Just bear in mind that it takes time to be financially free so you must constantly work smart and be persistent on your goal.

Never get tired to solve problems. Continue to solve problems! Remember you are born to succeed! Unleash the potential within you.

The business conference was also brought by Light Network.

Run for a Cause: AffiniTea Raise ‘D Roof 2015

Running is much more meaningful when it has a cause. This is what AffiniTea proved as they held another successful fun run last July 5 at CCP Complex, Pasay City.

Amid of the inclement weather, runners persist on hitting the finish line especially knowing that this would benefit the He Cares Foundation, a Christian non-profit organization that helps extremely poor street children in Metro Manila, Philippines by providing basic needs like food, clothing, education and medical assistance, as well as spiritual support.

Train up a child the way that he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it – Proverbs 22:6 (Photo grabbed from AffiniTea’s website)

After the Brown Race last year, AffiniTea continues to promote healthy lifestyle and camaraderie among friends and family through active living like running, at the same time sharing to others and giving back to our community especially those who are in need.

The most fulfilling moment in a race is beating and hitting the finish line, making all your effort paid off. Congratulations to all finishers of the race most importantly to those who shine as they finished the race in a shorter span of time! 

Some of the finishers of the race!

This is such a momentous event! Let’s continue to stay active with a healthy lifestyle and to keep on giving back to our communities and other people who are hopeless and in need.
