Kaya clips Global, stays unscathed

A well-rested Kaya Iloilo side maintained its perfect record in the Philippine Football League after a narrow 1-0 victory over Global last Saturday night at Rizal Memorial Stadium.

It was also the third clean sheet of the season for the Iloilo side, which is the only team in the PFL that has yet to drop points.

My father taught me about frugality

My father was one of my first teachers when it came to personal finance, and one of the most important lessons he taught me was about frugality. My father worked very hard like most Chinese fathers, and even when he was home, he would still be working, talking on the phone with his colleagues about business. Despite my father's diligence, he never made us think we had a lot. We lived in an old two-story house built in the 1970s which was never renovated, just repaired and repainted as needed. I shared a room with my three brothers and we only had a few toys that we got whenever we took top honors in school. In school, I had classmates who owned nice things and who lived in big beauti...Keep on reading: My father taught me about frugality
