How to Become a Money Magnet

I attended the Money Magnet Seminar yesterday at the SMX Convention Center with my sister and friends. It was a whole day seminar from 8am to 7pm and facilitated by John Calub, the speaker/trainer of the John Calub Training Inc.

I also attended his 2-hour free Keys to Success Seminar last October 19 at the Cinema 9 of SM Megamall with my friend Lyn so I got a discount with the 10 tickets of the Money Magnet Seminar.  I have invited friends to come over to the seminar. However, only 7 friends of mine came. Not bad though my 2 other friends were seating a bit far from us since they came late.

During the seminar, I learned a lot of things from Mr. John Calub. He tackled about the most common Filipino misconceptions about money, how to attract money (law of attraction), how to give (charity) and how to manage your money wisely. If you're a millionaire already and you don't know how to handle your money, you can spend it in 3 months only like the Filipino lotto winner of P14M. Which makes sense, right?

The reason why I attended this seminar is not only how to become richer, but I also like how the speaker/trainer delivers every bit of information. His presentations were very simple as a fact but he has a great sense of humor. You won't get bored or tired of listening to him. 
He also gave motivation and some right affirmations so that we can attract good things in life. He's a good and an effective trainer. I think no one in the seminar has fell asleep.

I can't disclose the information being taught during the seminar, you have to pay and attend it just like everyone else did. We were also supplied with training materials like manual, pen and a certificate.  It was all included in the Money Magnet Seminar ticket for the discounted price of PHP500 only (except meals, you have to provide that for yourself). Again, this is an all day seminar.

I highly recommend this seminar to everyone, young and old as long they have an open mind to absorb every information being given during the seminar. I want to attend his other seminars like Attracting Wealth and The Firewalk Bootcamp when I have the right opportunity (of course, time and budget is the problem for me at the moment).  You can also check out his website for other seminars

Barracuda Restaurant: Fab Birthday Lunch

It was my birthday yesterday and  I just turned 33 years old. I celebrated my birthday together with my two younger sisters and my sister's bf.  We had a 3-course Italian lunch at the Barracuda Restaurant. It's a fine dining restaurant in the Oasis Park Hotel. I like the interior and the ambiance of the restaurant though it was empty when we came in yesterday. 
So we were just the customers during lunch time.

I got 2 discount vouchers from Ensogo that I purchased last June for only P275 (regular price was P720). Each voucher was good for two persons though they have a different menu for Ensogo customers. I called them the day prior to my birthday for reservation as part of the voucher's fine print.
Menu of the Day
We were served with complimentary Foccacia bread with olive oil and pesto while waiting for our ordered food.

Our appetizer came, the Pumpkin and Carrot Soup. The soup was creamy and had croutons, not salty or sweet, just right. Yummy and healthy!

Pumpkin and Carrot Soup

Yellow dress and yellow soup?!

For the main dish, we ordered two different kinds so that we can taste the other dishes as well.  We ordered pasta and chicken for our main dishes. The Pesto Pasta with Zucchini and Bacon Roulade was good, its not too oily and the spices were just right for the taste.     

Main Dish #1: Pesto Pasta with Zucchini and Bacon Roulade

We were surprised with the second main dish, the Chicken Afritada. It's not the usual Filipino dish as we know. It was different in some ways. The chicken meat was rolled and on top of a hash brown. The afritada sauce was at the side of the plate then garnished with carrot strips.

Main Dish #2: Chicken Afritada

Dessert anyone? Of course.
I have a sweet tooth and its like a treat for me after lunch on some special occasions like this. We had Apple Crumble. We like it though it has whipped cream and mint leaves. My sister doesn't like the mint leaves for some reasons. The dessert was not too sweet, so we had finished it. I love the mint leaves because as I chew it, it feels so fresh and cool in my mouth like I brushed my teeth :)

Dessert: Apple Crumble

Their food was not bad at all, it was good though my favorite Italian restaurant is still Italianni's. The staffs were courteous and attentive to us. They even assisted us with an umbrella when we were about to board the taxi since it was raining yesterday. I think they lack some advertising for their establishment in order for them to be recognized.

We didn't have to pay for the service charge, we just provide them our Ensogo vouchers and off we go to SM Manila to catch a movie.  I love watching movies/films and that will never be skipped on my birthday. 

Barracuda Restaurant is located inside the Oasis Park Hotel
