And perhaps the glossy appearance of the cover and pages does matter as well which will add up in the cost of the finished product. But nonetheless, no matter what kind of products and services that a certain company has, I will always go for the company that offers good customer service because you can conveniently go back to them in case there are some problems you encountered.

The Cyber Monday Deals

It’s the first day of December and there’s no stopping for the holiday season to come. The Christmas tree is up and has been lighted already. Christmas ornaments and decors are also visible in the house while the temperature outside starts dropping every passing day. Few days back, it ranges from 17-18 degrees Celsius already at early in the morning and dusk. I noticed also that the mid-day temperatures are playing between 25 to 29 degrees and it just shows that winter is here already.

And that only means the holiday season promotions and enticing deals cannot be ignored. In fact, I have been receiving text messages from several well known brands so I can take advantage of it. Shop goers are just as eager as the retailers, so they can boost their sales during the holiday season. And in the US, many are keeping an eye in tomorrow’s cyber Monday deals and I think it is just the same as the black Friday deals that will surely draw big lines and the punishing long queue at check-out counters.

The cyber Monday deals is no difference from the others in trying to lure shoppers to spend and many believe that it is just the beginning of the holiday season discounts. Yet it could also attract potential violence among shop goers as the crowd goes bigger and bigger. Just like what happened during the Walmart black Friday deals wherein hundreds are arrested.

Philippines’ Ascent to Investment Grade

The most anticipated credit rating upgrade for the Philippines has been finalized. Although it is expected because the Philippines has already received an investment grade rating from Fitch last March and it was followed with another from Standard & Poor’s later in May. And so last Thursday (3 October 2013) the last major debt-watcher, Moody’s, granted and raised the Philippines’ investment grade status to a Baa3 rating with a positive credit outlook.

Although the “Baa3” rating is the lowest in the investment grade ratings, yet it is well enough to place the Philippines’ economic performance on par with Turkey and Spain. And it is also considered a critical milestone in lifting the country’s economic status from one of Asia’s weaker economies which was once even considered “the sick man of Asia”. And the economic growth of 6.8 percent last year and 7.6 percent in the first half of 2013 are among the highest in Asia-Pacific and remained one of Asia’s best performers.

Investment Grade Ratings

According to Moody’s, “The Philippines’ economic performance has entered a structural shift to higher growth, accompanied by low inflation.”

With three investment rating upgrades in succession, it only means one thing to the Philippines, a good image with a brighter outlook to the eyes of the investors. And with the badge of credit worthiness, it also reflects the confidence of the international community with regards to the strength of the Philippine economy. Many believe that there might be another upgrade in the coming years before 2016, the time when the current President steps down. And so what’s this latest credit rating upgrade means to the Philippines?

An improving credibility to the international community.
