Get Rich from Financial and Forex Market trading

Ortigas Library ,2nd Floor  Seminar room- Ortigas Avenue corner Meralco Avenue , Pasig City

The author  saw an on-line advertisement inviting bloggers and media to join the FREE seminar about financial market and staying fiscally sound. I quickly singed-up for the event .

Ms. Lilybeth Sia

I arrived at the Ortigas Library shortly at around 7:45 am. I thought that the seminar will be at around 8:00am . I was later notified by the security guard on duty that the seminar schedule was at 9:00am . Never-least , avoided the early morning rush hour and squeezing with a lot of people at the MRT  station.

I was greeted by Mr. Shyan Lim who arrived shortly after 8:30 am .  He is very warm and friendly person. He is from Singapore and now living in the Philippines for almost 5 years.  He used to work for a multinational financial company but decided to have his own business and trains people for financial literacy .


Our group swell  from  less than half a dozen to more than 30 people by 9:00am . There were all sorts of people, from students, to yuppies, professionals , retirees, bloggers and some financial experts .  We were told by the SECRETARIAT to register at the counter.

Mr. Amar Chandnani and Mr. Shyan Lim

Mr. Amar Chandnani presented  data that showed that 43. 8% of the Filipinos spend more than they earned, 51. 5% spend all their income, 4.6% spend less than their income.

It was an eye opener for almost all of the participants of the seminar.

Then a short game was ” WIN as Much as You Can ” was played by the participants forming group A ( X)  and group B ( O)  . Everyone  assumed it was the popular game of TIC TAK TOE because of how it appeared to look like, we failed big time! We never really understood the instructions given and just relied on our stock knowledge.  Nobody got the total of 8 points. They are funny and hilarious too .

 then a short mid-morning break  which consists of club house sandwiches , coffee was served to all the attendees. The company (Top Meat ) is   Rated ‘AAA’ by the National Meat Inspection Service of the Department of Agriculture. It is the Highest International Standard given by the department, to companies that strictly comply with their hygiene and product quality requirements.
