Land Partnership: A Very Sound Investment

Time is indeed hard and the cost of living, especially if you are in Manila, or somewhere nearby, is constantly on the rise. It is the primary reason why we all struggle to look for more ways to earn money, stretch the family budget, and augment our regular income. Those who can afford it have also tried their hand at opening up their own small-scale businesses, investing in the stock market, as well as exploring other ways and means to grow their money. I know I would try a number of these investments if I can afford them.

Early this week, I stumbled upon one promising earning-opportunity that I thought a lot of people, especially land-owners, will be interested in ~ land partnership. I have not heard of this before so I did my homework and do a bit of reading. I found out that compared to selling lots and big chunks of land, land partnership will allow land owners to get more value from their money as instead of getting a small revenue from the sold land, they will be partnering with property developers that will turn their lands to real estate properties like high rise, commercial or residential properties, thus giving them maximum earning potentials. This will also divide the pressure and expenses of owning a land in half. Fees for land surveys, an asbestos survey houston and the likes will also now be shared by the members of the land partnership. This is beneficial as some fees can be exorbitant when dealt with alone.

Land partnership is a collaboration where land owners that partner with developers get to cash in on the income produced by the developed properties.

Why You’d Want To Consider Becoming A Land Partner Now

Here are a few reasons why you would consider maximizing your land’s earning potentials and become a land partner:

  • The local real estate industry is booming especially that the ASEAN integration starts this year and the Philippines will be marketed as a prime tourist destination, attracting foreign investors that will boost our tourism as well as strengthen our economy
  • The projected economic growth will allow for the creation of new business districts even outside of Metro Manila creating a need for land to develop in areas surrounding Metro Manila
  • Investors who would set up their business in these areas will be interested to buy land, thereby increasing the demand for developed land
  • Land owners will get more value for their land by becoming land partners
  • Land partnership increases the property’s value by 100% to 1000%
  • Land partnerships allow land owners to turn their small revenue into larger sums

This is another option landowner may want to consider, instead of selling their properties

Mum Reads: LifeBooks Releases 2 New Titles This Month!

The summer heat is making me wish this busy mum could have some downtime long enough to curl up with a good book while drinking a tall glass of the most refreshing green mango shake. Add a  hammock, the vast blue sky and the shore into the mix and it will be perfect. But we have yet to hit the beach and I hope we do so before the new school year starts. Even when school is out, I still have tons of work to do at home so reading for pleasure is taking the backseat. Hopefully, I could squeeze in hours of reading next month while the little man is in school.

I have only about a couple of weeks before the new school year opens and it is the perfect time to create my Reading list and I am excited to add these 2 new titles from LifeBooks onto my list:


books, simple pleasures, reading, pr, announcement

This book is penned by Steve McVey and here is a short synopsis:

Do you long to experience the grace of God?

Steve McVey, author of the bestselling book Grace Walk (over 250,000 sold), invites you to start each day by letting God remind you of His love and care for you. Experience all of the grace God has to offer you–refreshment, joy, and forgiveness–in these quiet moments alone.

As you read, you will learn that God’s grace isn’t something you read about–it’s a way of life. It’s not about struggling to be perfect. It’s about letting Him love you and work through you and in you to accomplish more for Him than you ever could on your own. If you find yourself trying to earn God’s grace, these devotions will help you understand what Christ has already accomplished for you and what He longs to do in you today.

6 Reasons Why The New ASUS #ZenPhone 2 Is Ideal For Mums!

it is time to #SeeWhatOthersCantSee with the new #ZenFone 2 review will be up on soon ????????

I have mentioned in my previous ASUS ZenPhone2 post that I shall be reviewing this awesome new mobile phone model very soon here, so let us not beat around the bush and let us #SeeWhatOthersCantSee. Here are the Top 6 reasons why I thought this new flagship phone model is the ideal for all the hardworking, multi-tasking mums out there:

1. The Beautiful and Ergonomic Design

Don’t we mums love the beautiful union of beauty and functionality? Practical and budget-savvy that we are, we like our stuff functional without sacrificing its aesthetic value, and I thought ASUS captured that best with their brand new ZenPhone 2. The concentric-circle design, one of the most iconic feature of ASUS mobile phones, along with its slim profile {can you believe it is just 3.9mm at the thinnest edge?}, allows the phone to fit securely into a busy mum’s hand, while its beautiful metallic hairline finish gives it the beauty and elegance, as well as the feel, of metal.

ZenPhone 2 is also uniquely designed without borders to give a 72% Screen-to-Body Ratio, giving the user more screen space in a 5.5-inch smart phone and for a mum who does not have a 20-20 vision and has to strain her eyes to check applications and social media pages on a small mobile phone screen, I thought this is brilliant!   I also love that ZenPhone 2 does not have any control buttons on its side but have this Intuitive Controls on the back. No worries about your phone accidentally waking up while left unlocked and unchecked in your pocket or your purse.

2. Fast Charging Feature

The last thing mums need is having their gadgets get in the way of going about their day-to-day activities, heading out to enjoy the great outdoors with the little ones, and basically live life to the fullest. So I particularly love this ZenPhone 2 feature. It comes with a 3000mAh Batttery and coupled with ASUS BoostMaster Technology that will allow mums to charge her Zenphone 2 of up to 60% for just about 39 minutes! I charged mine at 10% battery life and was finished after about less than an hour so there is no need to wait for long periods of time just to have your mobile phone charged!

3. The World’s First 4GB Smartphone

A super-fast phone is a must for any multi-tasking mum’s arsenal and ZenPhone 2 is just the perfect fit. With its 4GB RAM, you will never have to worry about your phone running slow or sluggish that you have to use apps one at a time or have to remove background apps while using Facebook or playing games, or in my little man’s case, watching his favorite videos on youtube.

I was in the mall over the weekend for an event and I used my ZenPhone 2 to snap photos and upload them on Instagram and even when I am using a public WI-FI access, I never encountered any problems uploading photos. I even get to edit the photos and make a few collages. With its 64-bit Intel CPU, ZenPhone 2 truly is a “Monster.”
