25 Smart Ways to Spend Php25M (if I win!)

25 Smart Ways to Spent Php25M (if I win!)

As someone who isn’t born with a silver-spoon, to become rich would be a fantastic moment in my live. With my money, I can do whatever I wish, go to places and but whatever I want.

However, let’s admit that being rich also comes with big responsibility… and lots of stress for some!

What if one day, I got magically wake up in the bed of Php25 Million pesos?!



So just for the sake of FUN, I listed down my own 25 Smart ways to spend a Php25M.


1. 20% of my Php25 Million will goes to my trust fund. No questions ask.

2. Get additional life insurance. It is better to have another one, I’m no monogamous.

3. Buy a small vacation house in the province. I like it near the beach coz I’m missing the provincial life.

4. Travel to France, but not in Paris (very touristic appeal). I prefer to visit the old French chateaus, vineyards, and small towns that Belle hated most.

5. Open a small school for learning “how to become a lady”, learn international social graces and etiquettes. Believe me, these are getting extinct!

6. Invest in food franchise (of course Jollibee!).

7. Open a consultancy firm for digital and risk advisory. Needs an outlet for my passion and be connected to the professional and corporate world.

8. Get additional hard drive for my photos and videos. My blog photos needs additional storages!

Wow such a great view to be rich!



9. Invest a few grand to update my website. Yes, there is always room for improvement.

10. Travel to Spain, and make sure to dine with the royal family.

11. Travel to Italy, and making sure to dine at the famous Michelin restaurant.

12. Travel to Greece and have my old Greek Goddess theme photo shoot!

13. Pay a visit to Tokyo, not for shopping (too much clutter!) just for sightseeing and dining.

14. Visit Thailand for the nth time for my regular R & R season.

15. Visit China and tour around its key cities and gorgeous provinces to feed my mind.

16. Buy travel insurance. This will save me from stressful issues, like loss of luggage, flight delays, etc.

17. Buy OPPOR17 smartphone for my travel photography, and few selfies!

Looks gorgeous, right?!




18. Give anonymous donation to the animal shelter. I love animals although I can’t have them.

19. Buy some jewelry and store it to known private banks as my investment.

20. Contact Love Marie and commission a self-portrait of mine. I want to have a valuable remembrance to my kin, letting them know how smart am I. LOL

21. Contact Eman Santos and commission a panorama painting of koi for my Mother. She loves koi.

22. Book an appointment at Salcedo Auction and invest to one of the Philippine’s most important art.

23. Open a Swiss account for contingency reason. We don’t know what our economy goes.

24. Open a French restaurant ala-MIREIO to feed my tummy, my status quo, and to work with a gorgeous French chef.

25. A pair of Manolo Blahnik. Nothing will give you an outmost confidence than wearing gorgeous pair of shoes from an icon.

  29. Hahaha Jollibee.. everyones pride in the Phillipines. We visited Manila this year and everyone told us to try the food there. Have you seen the movie CrazyRichAsians? I found it funny that it was such a hit in USA and it basically flunked in China.. but in the crazy rich in China are at a different level!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahahah Jollibee because it is one of the feasible food chain. Yes I love the Crazy Rich Asians, and I know the fact that the real rich Asians raised their brows about it but the movie is an entertainment.

      It flunked in China because of the delays release... the people behind the licensing should think that the technology in Asia especially in China is way advance that we can always get an advance copy, lol.

    1. Hi,

      as of today this Php25M is equivalent to $476,000 and it is a small money if you will spend it outside Asia. However, if you spend it here in Southeast Asia, you can live a millionaire and retirement life!

  41. I wouldn't know where to begin if I had this much money. A house would be nice to begin with.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I thought initially of buying a house. However, I thought of spending for travel first. A house would get more cost especially when it wasn't occupied. Unless I buy a small condo and hook it up to Airbnb.

      Delete
  42. This sounds like a great think to think about. I love doing this whenever I purchase a lottery ticket out here. I always think that I'm not paying for the ticket with the expectation of winning. I do it because I enjoy dreaming about what I would do with the money for a while.

    ReplyDelete

    1. That is exactly the thought, David! The money we spend for lotto is nothing because it gives us a heavenly feeling to dream, and that feeling can't buy with any price.
