Our January 2014 Member of the Month is
AMARANTH! Congratulations! :yehey:

Here are AMARANTH's responses to our questions.

Januaru 2014 Member of the Month: AMARANTH

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

I discovered this site in 2005 when I typed the words and abbreviation, " money, forum, Philippines" back then.

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

I wanted at that time a unique sounding username so I looked at the color label of a food color I bought.

3. What things do you like about the PMT Forum?

One of the best things is that it's not heavily moderated as long as proper decorum is maintained.

Second, information on money related topics. I knew enough about money being in business but one problem was nearly everyone I met that openly talks about money were fairly rich, rich, very rich, too rich!   They kinda distort some views on money that for example saying certain amount were insignificant such as, "one million means so little and easy to achieve", to which was why I began the thread "Malaki na ba ang makaipon ng one million before 30?"  to get the feel of the general public.   This topic was so successful and educational that I enjoyed reading hundreds of viewpoint were people in anonymity spoke what they truly think on what was a very invasive topic. 

I believe this forum was the first forum who both successfully opened sensitive money topics and created varied resourceful topics on money related matters that other forums copied

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

I'm charitable to the "little people" in life but my ways are, I want to have control of the donated item instead of donating them to any organizations ensuring 100% of it goes the intended people.   why, I learned that ceo/president of many charity organizations have huge salaries including deductible expenses.

5. What are your hobbies or special interests?

I collect silver coins and  crystal & gemstones.

I have interest in listening to the "beat" of the business climate, politics or whatever they talk about among businessmen/traders thru membership clubs.

6. What is your ultimate goal in life?

To be both successful and happy in my life yet never at the expense of neglecting my family.

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

Business,  Passive income:  i.e. bonds, deposits, dividend

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

In truth, a person's success is largely influenced by their upbringing in life such as having parents who themselves rose from their own challenge and taught them these essential principles such as discipline in handling money,  instilling the will to resist peer/public pressure,  Guiding them thru stories of how both successful and unsuccessful people fictional or otherwise lead their lives.

After being properly trained and mentored,  usually these individuals would go on their way to reinforce their habits and ideas by associating with other successful people, acquire knowledge thru books, videos or gain contacts that provide them the information and update themselves.

If you did not have the luxury of being born with such role models then from what I've indicated  learn what was lacking from your life and apply the remedial.   We have so many helpful and successful people in this forum that you can ask for advice.

9. What's your New Year's resolution for 2014?

To successfully implement the foundation imitating warren buffets style of incredible passive income with tiny overhead built over the years.

10. What's your motto in life?

Blessing comes from the good deeds that you do, good words that you say, good thoughts that you think.

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

a. Favorite movie?

Currently, all the Marvel related franchise/lineup films.

b. Favorite song or music genres?

Meditation/relaxation genre:  i.e.  Tibetan singing bowl, chants, Solfeggio tones, Enya

Music that are energizing or happy:  i.e.  Kiss from the Rose, Stronger, You got the touch, upside down

c. Favorite actor/actress?

Currently, Robert Downey Jr in his role as IronMan. 

d. Cat or dog?


e. Mar Roxas or Jejomar Binay?

Roxas, only because there's no better alternative for the meantime than the secretly corrupt and dynastic Binays.

f.  Kapuso, Kapamilya or Kapatid?

No favorites.  I usually watch the news only.

g. McDonald's or Jollibee?

Jollibee. McDonald's at least in the Philippines copies their winning menu.

h. Money or fame?

If you don't have money in this world you can't do anything.

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

I married a beautiful and intelligent person.

j.  To love or be loved?

To be loved.  This is an indication that you picked a loyal partner.


Thanks and congrats again, AMARANTH! :clap:

Congrats, Amaranth (nice user-name, btw).

Some questions for you:

-Are you based outside the country?  Where?
-How did you stumble upon the series of articles by Fulford? Do you believe every word of it? Why or why not?


1.)  Im local.

2.)  In knew Benjamin fulford thru David wilcock when he interviewed him (thru transcript) which was the first extremely long post i made in cooperation with other forumers.   This is where the title  "the trillion dollar lawsuit that could end financial tyranny" comes from- Him (david wilcock), it was his article.

Yes i do.  Prior to all this if you recalled back in 2008 just when the financial crisis struck,  a lot of forumers here were then actively posting several articles about the imminent doom of the world economy and one such source was which was among the best because it acts as a rss of sorts that the website itself collects various information from other sources.   

It was talking a lot about the importance of gold as real money and its historical timeline but also expanded the topic from various economic experts like peter Schiff, veteran ex wall street broker max keiser etc.  Now some of those articles i recalled mentioned about gold that the, 1.)  FED treasury sent to china were lined with tungsten coated with thin layer of gold.  2.) the AMERO currencies planned if the dollar collapses (type amero in Wiki) and  3.) several articles that war is a very profitable for weapons manufacturer and the banks who fund wars.   Even our own forum once opened a topic about 9/11 being staged as a false flag event as a pretext to invade Iraq if you can still find it.

When you read them independently it sounded crazy since nothing of that sort were ever mentioned on any media but fast forward several years later upon stumbling wilcock's really long interview of Benjamin fulford and both of their subsequent articles in their respective websites all mentioned about this in more detail and clarity that those seemingly disjointed, unrelated articles were piece together by david wilcock himself in a more sensible manner.

If all this seems confusing, please watch the free movie made by foster gamble titled THRIVE: What On Earth Will It Take on you tube which is two hours worth.  Or just download the video using the apps YTD video downloader  and watch at your leisure using VLC player apps on your computer.
