Here I go again, questioning my life choices and asking my go-getter self to bounce back on track. It’s not that I’m less determined than before. I’ll always have that aggressive, ambitious, and competitive side in me (think Seo Eun Gi in the first few episodes of The Innocent Man). I just have so many dreams–ideas actually, that I find myself being in love with the idea rather than the idea of turning it into reality. Get it?

Okay, let me set aside #grownupissues. On to something light and fun.

I came across this cute celebrity in the making named Diego Ledesma. This kid turned his Facebook page into an advice column of sorts. And just how young he is? According to this article, Diego is just seven years old. He looks younger to me, actually. Numbers aside, it’s refreshing to come across a youngster who’s game to answer questions posed by grown-ups. He’s very popular now because of the PLDT Home DSL TVC. Not only that, Diego is slowly becoming a superstar with his guestings in some local TV shows. The whole family joins him in the spotlight, too. Not at all surprising since they’re such a good-looking bunch.

Meanwhile, let me get back to my muni-muni mode. Maybe I’m the one who needs to ask a kid for advice. Hehe.

Never miss out with Maybank

I already lost track of the many times I let good deals pass me by. Sometimes, I find about airline seat sales late in the afternoon/evening and/or there’s no payment center nearby. I have heard countless stories about being charged double for bookings, and refunding being so much of a hassle, so I am pretty much apprehensive on using cards to pay online.

Likewise, there are some items I fancy which not available in Manila. In as much as I want to purchase some of my wishlists online, a part of me isn’t sold on giving out sensitive financial information. Most of the time, I just end up waiting for someone to buy it for me abroad (that is, if it’s still in stock, and if it isn’t so much of a hassle for them). So most of the time, I end up not having the items I want. Sigh.

I’m delighted to discover a safe and secure solution for online shopping. Enter Maybank Credit Card’s Maybank Secure Online Shopping (MSOS). MSOS provides a One-Time-Password for Maybank MasterCard and Maybank Visa cardholders whenever they shop on 3D secure sites. These are websites with the Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode logos.

It’s this simple:
