Micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) can now add a payment option for online buyers.

To upkeep your business transactions despite of today’s global health situation,  an entrepreneur has to adapt the new normal of the trade – Contactless (But safe and fast) payment option. Merchants can easily adapt to this without a need for an e-commerce website.

“As of May 2020, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) have received temporary closure notice from over 50 micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) affecting almost 190,000 employees.”

The Philippines’ only end-to-end digital payments ecosystem enabler, PayMaya activates a mobile payment platform for micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprise (MSME) owners which enables them to accept up to PhP 250,000 worth of payment a month for free – The PayMaya Negosyo App.

Five Wellness Essentials For a Healthier Family in The Workplace

Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!

“The listed items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.”

Are you treated like a family at work?

It is indeed a booster to our sense of belonging every time we reminisce how our mere workmates from the very first day of work become an extended family after how many met deadlines, resolved conflicts and released paychecks with performance bonuses.

But how can you say if the people inside the office really treat you like a family?There are perhaps several ways. The most I am sure of though is when the office people do not just coach you plainly about your corporate responsibilities. It is when these same people also teach you health tips and wellness advisories, “persistently”.

In the list below are wellness essentials I recommend to my family at work. These are my must-have items when I visit my only trusted health retailer, Watsons. These are all inside my work bag per shift.

C0469065-437B-4EC7-A41A-8F3D8C97D829
The list includes items for strengthening immunity, maintaining integrity of the Upper Respiratory Tract (URT) specifically the throat (as this is the most used part during daily sales presentation) and managing daily stress from work. These items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.

1. Vitamin C/ Multivitamins (ENERVON C TAB X30 BOTTLE, PhP 195)

The work schedule makes it hard for us to consistently buy the natural food source of vitamins and minerals. This fails us to achieve the enough daily nutritional requirement to be healthy. Thus, having handy tablets at your work pouch makes it easier for a hard working person like you to maintain strong immunity.

2. Antibacterial Lozenges (STREPSILS LOZENGES ORANGE 8X36, PhP 64)

This is indeed the most specific item in the list for the corporate persons who are tasked to talk almost entirely in their work hours like the sales and marketing team. Apart from the daily work demand on your throat, the varying room temperatures among several sales venues makes your throat dry and more vulnerable to pathogens. Ascertain that you have a healthy URT daily to deliver your persuasive spiels. Guard it with an Antibacterial “candy”.

3. Oral Antiseptic (Bactidol Oral Antiseptic 120ml, PhP 186)

Brushing your teeth is not enough to deter the growth of bacteria in your mouth that might predispose you to more serious health concerns. An antiseptic gargle both disinfects your mouth and gets rid of unpleasant smell – a plus point when networking.

4. 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (BIOGENIC ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL 50ML, PhP 28)

Cutting the transmission of disease-causing agents is as easy as spraying an alcohol every after a using your hands. Make it a habit to spray before and after a handshake with charm (not obnoxious).

5. Calming Oil (PROSOURCE EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT CALMING OIL 10ML, PhP 120)

The product in this list which I am the most thankful of. This is my portable and economical “aroma therapy and sleep-inducing scent”. It simply works like an instant drug for me. It relaxes, soothes and brings me to a sound sleep like magic. Roll that stress away!

6. (ElectiveFacial Mask (DEOPROCE COLOR SYNERGY EFFECT MASK YELLOW SHEET – Snail and Honey, PhP 65)

The agent in the Snail slime highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.

Skin care products which contain Snail extract had helped me a lot in maintaining a pleasant complexion for two years now. The agent in the Snail slime which repairs damaged tissues and restores hydration made my skin look more well-nourished and highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.

May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!

When we start looking after each other’s health, not just because we value the contribution of that person to the department’s success, but more importantly because we care for the life aspirations of that person, we do not plainly see the structure as an organizational chart anymore. Now, it is a family tree. A new normal in the workplace. May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home

and at work too!

Six Easy Online Treats for Mom this “Stay-at-home Quarantine” Mother’s Day

A guide for the quarantined Mother’s Day celebration.

Had I known the lockdowns would be stretched this long, I would have went home to spend everyday like it is Mother’s day. Good thing, there is PayMaya! 

If Dad influenced me with “people” traits that made selling easier to do, Mom on the other hand, raised me with an artillery of eloquence that made networking second nature to me.

I had to address mom as  “Teacher Eden” when I was in kindergarten. She was my Reading teacher at school.

“Teacher Eden’s” upbringing attributed my confidence in public speaking, tactfulness and the love for bespoke haberdashery. When I communicate, may it be with one person or an audience, speaking or writing, even from preparing what to wear to planning what to wear in the next speaking engagement, I always remember her and her pointers. Obviously, as I devote this post to her, I miss her so much that if I had known the lockdowns would be stretched this long, I would have went home to spend everyday like it is Mother’s day. Good thing, there is PayMaya! 

To those away sons (and daughters) who want to honor their queen as the world dedicates a day for Moms (“quarantined” version this year), here is a guide on online treats you can purchase for her, contactless and cashless with convenience.


1. Mother’s Day cake

Make it sure that mom’s 2020 Mother’s Day memory is worth reminiscing through a photo on her timeline, home quarantined with a Mother’s Day cake. Send her a video greeting too and add a lovely bouquet if delivery is possible.

2. Be extra thoughtful with her wellbeing.

Sponsor her quarantine-long Vitamin C, disinfectants, beauty and other health-pampering essentials. Encourage her to try at least an hour daily of decluttering the anxiety brought by being “locked at home” with a facial mask on, sips of a warm calming tea and her favorite songs playing in the background. Send to her a video of your Mother-son (-daughter) theme song, too! Ours is Eternal Flame by The Bangles. What is yours?

4. Let Mom greet her fellow mothers too!

See to it that Mom can still socialize with friends and relatives even with curfew and social distancing. Mom loves to send greetings on her group chats or even through video calls. Purchase for her data packages at discounted rates using the PayMaya app. Send to her the link of your Mother-Son (-Daughter) favorite movie, too. Ours is Titanic. We watched it twice at the movie house in 1998. Go send yours to your super Mom too!


5. Help her save a bit for her self.

Settle her one month personal bills and shoulder a month-long household bills. Take care of the groceries by ordering online, and settle the bills with the help of your PayMaya app.

6. Just send to her an extra money for whatever she wants to own online.

Though you are doing it as a monthly commitment to send her a fund.

Teach her how to use the PayMaya app by doing financial transactions with her through the it.
