Trick Art Museum

One fine Sunday. Here are some of the pictures taken at the Trick Art Museum of the Manila Ocean park. I must say, it was worth the visit for only P99.00, per person. Indeed, it was a fun way of spending the weekend!


Hi everyone! Just want to share with you this video, the reason why i was MIA for quite a while.  Cheers to DIY video to save wedding expense. Yey!

I miss this view.

I fancy sweet sunsets. It makes me appreciate the wonders of nature. It's always an exhilarating feeling to witness breathtaking views of sunset at the beach.

Happy Friday! Looking forward to a long weekend. Time to take a break from the workaday world. 

Cheers to life!

Don't you love sunset like this?

What is a Professional Tax Receipt?

              Happy Wednesday everyone! I feel so accomplished today due to certain reasons, to start off my day, I woke up at 7am, I deserved a pat on the back! You know why? That is one of my heart desires, to start my day early, to be able to do more. Waking up early on a Wednesday allowed me to pay my long overdue Professional Tax before heading to work in the afternoon. By the way, to give you an idea about this professional tax that professionals need to pay annually, here is an overview: (Source: Local Government Code of the Philippines)

SECTION 139. Professional Tax -

 (a) The province may levy an annual professional tax on each person engaged in the exercise or practice of his profession requiring governmentexamination as such amount and reasonable classification as the Sangguniang Panlalawigan may determine but shall in no case exceed Three hundred pesos (P300.00) 

(b) Every person legally authorized to practice his profession shall pay the professional tax to the province where he practices his profession or where he maintains his principal office in case he practices his profession in several places: Provided, however, That such person who has paid the corresponding professional tax shall be entitled to practice his professionin any part of the Philippines without being subjected to any other national or local tax,license, or free for the practice of such profession. 

(1) Any individual or corporation employing a person subject to professional tax shall require payment by that person of the tax on his profession before employment and annually thereafter. 

(2) The professional tax shall be payable annually on or before the thirty first (31st) day of January must, however, pay the full tax before engaging therein. A line of profession does not become exempt even if conducted with some other profession for which the tax has been paid. Professionals exclusively employed in the government shall be exempt from the payment of this tax.

(3) Any person subject to the professional tax shall write in deeds, receipts, prescriptions,reports, books of account, plans and designs, surveys and maps, as the case may be,the number of the official receipt issued to him.

          As, I mentioned earlier, due to my laziness in waking up early to settle my PTR, I had to pay a total of P405.00 instead of P300.00 due to the additional charges of P30.00 as interest and P75.00 as surcharge. Oh well, that's P105.00 over there. Lesson learned? Pay your PTR as scheduled to avoid penalty charges. Indeed, it pays to be an early riser!

Keep calm and be productive! Beat the mid-week blues!

Beat the Monday Blues

             Oh happy day! Let us start the Monday with a BIG smile on our faces. I know, I know..I can hear you all,  I believe that many of us practically hate Monday mornings. To  simplify, it means that working week has finally kicked off again. Oh well, that is why rainy days and Mondays keep me

              To beat the Monday blues, ponder on this, we don't need New Year to be better, all we need is a Monday to change for the better and live the life we always wanted.

Be Inspired. Pass it on. I love Monday mornings!

Cheers to life!

Give me a BIG smile, buddy!
