2017 Retail Treasury Bond (RTB) Public Offering

Hi there! Just read the news that the Philippine government will be having another public offering of Retail Treasury Bonds (RTBs). This is already the second public offering under the Duterte administration and this made my day!

The Bureau of the Treasury will be putting on the auction block at least 30 billion pesos worth of Retail Treasury Bonds on Tuesday, March 28, 2017. These RTBs will have a three year tenor and will be offered to the general investing public.

Start Date: March 28, 2017
End Date: April 6, 2017
Issue Date: April 11, 2017
Maturity Date: April 11, 2020

Form and Denomination: RTBs will be issued scripless form and will be sold during the public offer period in minimum denomination of P5,000.

Interest Rate: Final interest rate will be determined through a Dutch auction to be participated in by GSEDs.

Interest Payment Date: Quarterly

Listing: RTBs shall be listed in the Philippines Dealing and Exchange Corp. (PDEX)

RTBs earn a fixed income rate based on prevailing market rates with interest coupons paid quarterly. This low-risk nature makes this investment product more attractive to any Filipino who would want to get into investing. This is virtually risk-free. Perfect for the newbies in investing, those who are conservative investors and to those who are looking to diversify with their investments.

With a minimum amount of P5,000 you get to invest in and help the Philippine government. You get your interest (sent to your bank account) quarterly and maturity date will be on April 2020.

Also, a Peso savings account is required. This is where the interest and principal investment will be sent to. Some sellers/ partner banks are First Metro Investment Corp., Landbank, BDO, Chinabank, Security Bank, BPI.

I have missed this public offering last September 2016 but no way will that happen again. Instead of putting all our savings in a regular deposit account (where you only earn 1-2% annually. Duh) why not invest in RTBs instead? You're earning money and at the same time, helping the government!

So will you be investing in RTBs too? Let me know if you also know of other investment products in the comment section below. Thanks for dropping by!

Renew Placenta Herbal Beauty Soap

Wotcha ladies! This one is long overdue and the product is not new in the market BUT I felt I needed to share with you this amazing whitening soap. This wouldn't cost you more than a hundred pesos which makes it all the more wonderful, right?

Introducing, the newly improved Renew Placenta Herbal Beauty Soap! This one's so common, you've probably seen them in the grocery store a hundred of times now.

Would you believe that this 135g bar only costs PhP 85? There's a smaller bar that's sold at PhP 55, too! I was amazed when I saw the price tag so I got one for myself and my mom.

I cut the bar in half - not only to avoid it from melting but to save it from my youngest brother. Hilig din nya gamitin …

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain Review

I'm anemic and look pale when I'm bare-faced. So whenever I go out, I try to look as healthy and pretty (lol) as possible. But the weather's been so hot (to think that it's already October!) and chances are, when I go out and put make up on, it'll fade in a couple of hours. Effort lang talaga ang magpa-pretty, gahd! That's when I started using lip and cheek tints. And now, I'll share with you one of my favourites-

In my constant search for a new moisturizer that I can use, I came across Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil. This one is very popular and a favorite among ladies. After some research, I decided to try it out. I had high hopes on the product since it claims 23 miracles, so how did it go, you ask?
