September 2014 Member of the Month: wilch23

- Thank you!

I was wondering how an acerbic poster like me can win this award ... then I saw the news that Hello Kitty is a person, a Brit to boot! Then I knew everything is alright and we'll all soon wake up! Hahaha


1. Hi wilch23! How long have you been a PMT Forum member? Share to us how you discovered PinoyMoneyTalk.

- Hmm, a couple of years maybe, sign of old age, sorry. I think I was reading some business news or columns and found reference to this site. BTW, Great forum for exchange of info and ideas.


2. Why did you choose the username "wilch23"? 

- It's my email so easier to remember. 23 is in honor of Michael Jordan.


3. What are your hobbies or special interests?

- I like to read and watch films. I also play basketball with mostly youngsters and do some strength training.
 

4. Tell us something interesting that we don't know about you.

- I shaved my head when I was younger and has retained my (non)hair-do since. I have now lost much of my hair but few people seems to notice, haha!


5. How is wilch23 in PMT different from wilch23 in real life?

- I'm serious when doing business and can be a bit hard on my guys. But outside of business, I'm easy going.


6. How do you make money? Share to us your sources of income so we can be inspired as well.

- I started out working as a maintenance engineer in a big local factory, that was an easy job.

Then I became an in-house service engineer for a CT Scan center in a big local hospital. That was a very stressful job. The work was very demanding, I was on-call 24/7 with one of those pocketbell voice pagers since there were only like 3-4 CT centers in the country then.
The mini-computers used in the CT then were not so reliable, throw in the huge hard drives with platters bigger than dinner plates and the open reel tape drives with vacuum columns, and it made for a real service challenge. I had to be on site so much, they had a room reserved for me in case I had to stay overnight, which was actually quite often.

Fortunately I was able to save and eventually team up with some people I met and became a 3rd party service for the equipment.
 
Now, I am invested in stocks and UITF. I have a couple of businesses, medical related altho I'm not a doctor, mostly as a passive partner. So basically it's HARD WORK and OPPORTUNITY.


7. Can you tell us tips or suggestions that guide you in order to succeed financially?

- I always save part of my income and I started early. It helps to read about finance and economy to have some knowledge of the financial options out there. Patience is also very important. Someone once said that a frantic salesman is a dead salesman. I think that is also true for an investor. Anyone heard of this quote?


8. What is your ultimate personal goal that you want to achieve?

- To be able to provide good education and maybe startup capital for my kids, then have an uneventful retirement with my wife without any financial worries.


9. If there is one thing you can change about the Philippines, what would it be and why?

- I would like to see more nationalism, the true kind not politically charged. That is the only way for a country to improve itself.


10.Your motto or guiding principle in life?

- Wow! this is a hard one. I never thought of having motto for life and ... don't remember having one. But I do adhere to the Christian faith.


Wait, there's more! Just for the heck of it...

a. Favorite movie?

Maybe ... The Rock


b. Favorite song or music genres?

Mellow love songs and Jazz


c. Favorite actor/actress?

- I like Sean Connery


d. Favorite sports?

- Basketball


e. Beach or Mountain?

- Mountain


f.  Kapuso, Kapamilya or Kapatid?

- Sorry I don't watch much local shows except fr some news and documentaries.


g. Mar Roxas or Jejomar Binay?

- "Rock or a hard place" from the movie The Rock


h. Money or fame?

- Money nalang if just to support pinoymoneytalk, hehe


i. Marry intelligent but ugly person or marry stupid but beautiful person?

- Since I'm a guy, I had to choose intelligence over beauty, if it comes to that.


j.  To love or be loved?

- Be loved


==========

Thanks and congrats again, wilch23! :clap:

@wilch23,

Although we find ourselves in opposite poles most of the time in pmt, this time we have a common aspiration for our country.  Congratulations!

Congrats, wilch23. :-)

My question for you: Should we just resign ourselves to a Binay presidency in 2016? If not, what do you think can be done feasibly to prevent such an occurrence?

Congrats, wilch23. :-)

My question for you: Should we just resign ourselves to a Binay presidency in 2016? If not, what do you think can be done feasibly to prevent such an occurrence?

Well, after the Senate hearings today, do you think Binay is still unbeatable? Rumor is he's the next impeachment target.

I think our bigger QUESTION should be, who is worthy to be our next president?
Then that person has to run and be supported by a majority of the voters.
I don't think Roxas is that person.
Don't discount our COMELEC hocus PCOS also. I believe there is more than meets the eye there.
