1. Take a stroll around Metro Manila
Why go out of the country or out of town when you can enjoy places just within the metro? Visit the country’s historical places like Intramurous or Rizal Park. Drop by the ancient churches such as the San Agustin church and the Manila Cathedral. You can also brush up on your history at the National Museum of the Philippines or Museum of the Filipino People.
2. Enjoy a fun and connected lifestyle.
In this day and age, most people use their smartphones to stay in contact with their friends and family members. Whether they do it through social networking sites or messenger apps, it's important that you have a fast and reliable connection. Before the year ends, say goodbye to all things slow and unreliable when you sign up for Globe Platinum.
Chef JP Anglo, the man behind Kafé Batwan and Liberation Shawarma and the new Globe Platinum ambassador says, "I make it a point to never stop learning about food, and traveling is an awesome way to do that. Naturally, I have to stay connected with my team in Manila because the business needs to run even if I’m out of the country," he says.
"I’ve found Globe Platinum to be a key partner in enabling me to do that. Remember that I’m in the service industry, so I demand the same level of quality service that I provide. The Platinum Lifestyle Plan that I have covers everything I need."
Have you ever tried riding a cab that pays you money? Cash Cab Philippines, the only game show on wheels, has finally arrived in the Philippines.
Actor, TV host, and father Ryan Agoncillio will play "manong driver," taking driving passengers to their destination while quizzing them on general knowledge.
Questions asked during the ride will start easy and become trickier with contestants winning cash prizes for each correct answer. An incorrect answer means a strike, and contestants have up to three strikes before they are booted out of the cab and onto the street, no matter where they are. Contestants will have two "shout outs" for help if they are stumped on a question and can either call a friend or ask a random stranger for the answer. So, if you get all the answers right until your destination, you get to win a lot of money.
Catch the Emmy-award winning format, created especially for Filipino audiences, in a double episode on Tuesday, December 22, at 8:50 p.m. with an encore on Thursday, December 24, at 9:15 p.m.

5. Find a mentor.
It’s important to look for someone whom you could look up to and talk to at the same time. Once you find a mentor, listen to them and heed their advice. They can be a close friend or a senior employee from your company.
6. Learn to appreciate the simple things.
When you start to appreciate the small things, you begin to focus on the pleasurable, appealing, and nurturing aspects of life. You keep stress, negativity, and bad vibes that you experience on a daily basis at a distance.
When you’re having a stressful day, pause and look for a quiet place where you can daydream and think of all the beautiful things you can imagine. Remember, 2016 is just around the corner; end 2015 with a bang for a better you.
