Being an OFW since 2003, I can say that I am never running out of 'things to buy' or 'places to visit' list, in anticipation of the next pay day. But having been away from home, and having spent years away from home, so one might say, that I have a hefty amount of savings already. Then seing the YTD EARNINGS columnn in my payslip, I'd exclaim, "where did all this money go?!?".
So it is for that matter, that I started checking on my spendings, and shifted my thoughts on how to save, where to invest some of my money and how to find a passive income.
The first one that I thought of (although some people who are financially savvy will argue with me that it is not a good move) is to buy a property in the Philippines.
I bought my parents a nice house and lot in Antipolo.
They say that positive thoughts attract opportunities...and there they are...I met a few people that I have asked help from, a few more that became my inspiration to risk and get out of my comfort zone.
I found a good place in Antipolo which is just right for my parents. A place close to nature and just accessible to what they need.
So for my fellow OFWs, who are interested to see a tangible evidence of their hard-earned cash, visit
Crown Asia have various housing projects in various locations, according to your lifestyle in the payment scheme that suits you. Their marketing agents are very accomodating and helpful.
You can start by viewing a location first, who knows, if for now you are not decided yet, the visit might spark you to buy soonest (which is exactly what happened to me!).
If you want you can e-mail me your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can also introduce you to my trusted agents.
God bless our new endeavors for this year!
