  • Quick Thoughts on Fudget

    I once tracked my income and spending through a very old-school pen and paper method. I liked the whole exercise of jotting down every single one of my expenses because it made me accountable for my spending and my OC self liked seeing my expenses on a daily basis (it was sort of like a […] Read more…

  • Leveraging Your Credit Cards

    I first saw a credit card in action when my US-based cousins came back for a vacation and they would give the waiter a plastic card to pay for our meals or would hand the card to the cashier, who would then swipe it before handing my cousin his/her purchase. It was pure magic and […] Read more…

  • Election Day Ramblings

    It saddens me that I don’t write for this blog as frequent as I used to. The culprit is yoga. I used to block off my Saturday mornings for developing and writing blogposts, thus, I was able to churn out a least two posts a month. But now Saturday mornings are for yoga and I […] Read more…

    I regularly get feature requests through email and I respond only to those that address me by name (It’s Jill, btw. Not “Hello,” or “Hi,”). And of those that I respond to, I turn down about 99% because I have long decided not to do sponsored posts or link exchanges to make my life easier. […] Read more…

    One of my law school blockmates, together with his fraternity, bought a showdate for Ang Huling El Bimbo the Musical’s first run last year.

Life & Money

  • Ready to Pivot

    One of the most mind-blowing television series I’ve ever watched was “The Good Wife”. The premise itself isn’t all that fantastic (it’s a legal drama), but the idea that a 40 something year old woman who had been out of the legal world for more than a decade can start again and compete with others […] Read more…

  • State of the Jill Address (SOJA)

    With President Duterte’s upcoming State of the Nation Address causing a tizzy (Who will be the next Speaker of the House? Will there be artsy angles from Brillante Mendoza again? And will he be the director again? Abangan! Dum-dum-dummmmm!), I thought it best to have my own state of the nation address for all 2 […] Read more…

  • Frugality as a Way of Life

    People are usually shocked when they find out that I’m already in the office by 6:30AM, sometimes even as early as 6:15AM. That means I wake up at 4:30AM and am riding the FX by 5:45AM. No, I’m not gunning for the Employee of the Millennium Award, that’s simply how I deal with and survive […] Read more…
