The First DigitalFilipino E-Commerce Summit in Cebu

When I found out that Janette Toral, the owner of DigitalFilipino, is bringing another event here in Cebu, I got very excited because I know she is the real deal. The last event that I attended to was the Digital Influencers Marketing Summit in which she also spearheaded.

This time, the event is called E-Commerce Summit. It will be the first here in Cebu. The main intention of this summit is apparently to promote e-commerce here in the Philippines. 

Ms. Toral will be joined by prominent e-commerce players and industry practitioners. To name a few, speakers are the following:
  • Jack Madrid, Country Manager, Philippines with the topic of State of E-Commerce and Digital Marketing in the Philippines
  • Atty. JJ Disini, Professor at UP College of Law who will be talking about E-Commerce and Data Privacy: What Every Merchant Needs to Know
  • Dr. Nick Fontanilla, Market Analytics Specialist will be taking up Developing an E-Commerce Measurement Framework
  • Mannix Pabalan, Digital Strategist, Hashtag Digital, Inc. will be speaking about the different Lessons in E-Commerce Marketing: What will work in 2013?

  • Orville Tadle – Philippines country representative of who will be talking about Freelancers Thriving: Online Jobs Growth – eLance Experience

Of course the list will not be complete without Janette Toral who will be tackling about E-Commerce Movers and Shakers, Business, Search, and Social Models for 2013. 

There is really a lot to look forward to in this event and I particularly want to know more about how much  freelancing and online jobs have grown since I personally started having freelance jobs in 2010. I can't wait to hear Chris Ducker's talk about this.

I encourage you to be a part of this awesome event. Here are the details:

199Jobs Review

I am always on the lookout for additional income streams especially when it's online and I can earn it from home. Recently, I have discovered This is a website where you sell your services for just 199 PHP. If you are familiar with Fiverr, then this, for me, looks like local version of it. This post is my 199jobs review.

I registered to the site and see if I can make some money out of it. Registration is pretty straight forward and if you have an email or a Facebook account, you are good to go.

I am a certified online marketing specialist. So, I listed my service as a website auditor under digital marketing category. You can see my service here.

On the day my listing was published,  I already received my first order. I finished the task within 3 days as promised from my sales copy then notified the buyer and the buyer completed the task on his end. After that, I received my payment of 159 PHP. 199jobs gets 20% of each completed order. That is how they make money.


Trekking from Budlaan to Sirao Peak in Cebu

The Babag trekking group did another adventurous trekking. This time from Budlaan to Sirao; to conquer Sirao Peak.

We trekked thru the Kabang River in Budlaan then climb Sirao Peak which is approximately 750 Meters above sea level.

How we went there:

We met at sunny hills in Talamban then rode a habal-habal (25 Pesos each) going to Budlaan. Then from Budlaan, we went down to Kabang river and started trekking. We passed by 4 wonderful waterfalls then we   trekked to Sirao Peak. This whole trek started from 9 AM and ended at 5PM(where we reached the summit).

From Sirao, we rode habal2 again down to JY square. Fare is 50 pesos each.
