“Pag first time mo makahawak ng malaking pera, parang hindi mo mahahandle ng tama. At the end of the day, kelangan mo pa rin isipin na hindi mo alam kung hanggang kelan ka sa trabaho. Dapat lagging handa, dapat laging may ipon.”, Maja said in an interviewThe singer-actress also shared her own savings technique that OFWs can also adapt.
“Ako, as part of my new year’s resolution, may savings ako for travel, savings for shopping and savings for rainy days. So ganun, you need to budget all your sweldo.
