Life After the ' Hopefully Gone' Pandemic: Tips on Surviving the Aftermath of a Global Crisis

March 1, 2022, is a day full of hope for many Filipinos. After battling the pandemic for almost two years, the government is finally lowering the quarantine restrictions down to Alert Level 1 for many parts of the country. 

Though the threat is still there, this signifies that our current situation is better. As of today, the COVID-19 cases are lower and some industries would be allowed to open again.

Private offices can now operate at 100% full capacity. This means that those suffering from "no work, no pay" can have their jobs back. We can now go to church and hear the Holy Mass, visit our favorite restaurant or even have the most-deserved pampering session from our favorite spa and salon. 

Though our lives will never be the same, the pandemic has taught us many lessons. 

As someone who tries to see everything through the lens of gratitude, I realized that there are also good things that happened due to this health crisis. The so-called digital revolution transformation process was been fast-tracked as most people were forced to transition to online and digital means. Recent studies show that it is estimated that more than 76.2 million Filipinos are online users. 

Government transactions are more streamlined and can now be made online. This has been long overdue and finally due to the current need, government institutions were able to adapt and invest more in their online and digital systems. As of today, government services had been more efficient. One of the notable achievements in this undertaking is the Central Business Portal (CBP) which business owners can use for business registration.

E-commerce also grew significantly by 76% in 2020 and by 80.2% in 2021. Based on a recent study conducted by Statista Research, 62.5% of Filipinos have at least purchased a product or service online. It has totally altered the way we shop and this may fully change the course of the traditional brick-and-mortar store in the next few years.  

So, what exactly happens to us after the pandemic? 

Are we going back to our old ways? How do we move forward? 

Here are Tips on Surviving the Aftermath of a Global Crisis

1. Maintain Health Protocols - Health protocols such as wearing masks, frequent handwashing, and regular sanitizing are there to stay. We should not forget that the threat and danger are still out there. We can still get sick. According to medical experts, the virus is not going away. We just have to learn how to live with it. 

Our experience has taught us how cleanliness and hygiene can save our lives. Thus, it is ideal that we continue practicing all these health protocols. 

Learn when and how to properly wash hands

2. Online Shopping - M
any Filipinos have already discovered the perks of online shopping, thus, this preference of the consumers is not expected to change anytime soon. Imagine just making a few clicks and voila, you receive your purchase right outside your doorstep. With the increasing prices of gas, you'd rather just order online than drive around town to purchase something. 

Thus, if you are a business owner, it is encouraged that you continue to adapt and shift to digital. The market is gearing towards this direction. Invest in your online presence. 

3. Cashless Transactions - Doing financial transactions has never been easier and cheaper. The pandemic has definitely taught us that it is possible to pay our bills, send money, transfer funds with just a few clicks. 

It is expected that the use of digital wallets will continue to rise in the next few years. More merchants both online and offline are turning to online payment as a convenient buying method. 

As a cash-based society that has security concerns, it important is that you find a provider that is reliable and easy to use such as BDO Pay. 

Through BDO Pay, you can Scan to Pay in stores, Send and Request Money, Pay Bills, and more all conveniently through your mobile phone. The best part? You even simply link this directly with your existing BDO savings account. 

Thus, if you haven't tried using BDO Pay for your cashless transactions, it's time to download the app and start making your life so much easier. 

4. Telehealth or Telemedicine

Telehealth or Telemedicine has made it more accessible for Filipinos to have quality medical care. Medical consultations are now more affordable. Some companies even offer unlimited consultations. Thus, we don't have any excuse now to neglect our health by not seeing our doctor. 

5. Be Minimalist - Another significant lesson that we have is that we don't really need to have so many pairs of shoes, bags, and other material things in order to survive. Being in quarantine for so long made us realize this. 

Learn to invest in more worthwhile. Keep an emergency fund or plan for your retirement. It's very important to be smart about our personal finance because we don't know what the future may bring. Things may change within a snap of a finger. 

How about you? How do you envision our lives will be this new normal?

Fan of mobile vlogging? Samsung has the most epic smartphone for that!

Video blogging has been the digital diary of Gen MZ. They love capturing daily activities, milestones, and achievements, or even travel trips with loved ones. To fully capture epic moments, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S21 FE 5G that allows creators to make their content more seamless and sharp, day or night. Here’s how:

1. Shoot from a distance

It becomes a challenge when creators capture long-distance subjects to get a clear shot of the subject; sometimes resulting in blurry or unclear snaps of faces because of the lens capacity of the camera. That is why having the right device is important to capture detailed shots at any angle. The 30x Space Zoom feature snaps any long-distance subjects and still provides a high-resolution image. Fans who enjoy capturing the sceneries would appreciate this feature since it gives them better results in vlogging epic moments from afar.

2. Be unique in storytelling. 

Fans love to be unique to express their adventurous concepts. The Dual Recording feature can capture epic moments simultaneously from the front and back with its cameras. This is fun and resourceful– making it more realistic by recording the real-time “OMG” moments along with the scenery.

3. Make sure the lighting is proper and appropriate for you to make a video

Perfect lighting is the key in every content creation, especially with vlogging. Creating a natural ambiance may sound like a hassle, but it helps develop high-quality output like a pro. The Galaxy S21 FE 5G is also packed with impressive camera lenses that will capture any clip seamlessly. The best part? Content creators can even use the Night Mode to still snap sharp images in the low-lighting.

The video blogs take time to master and develop a jaw-dropping output, and with the Galaxy S21 FE 5G, fans can start making epic vlogs like a pro effortlessly.

Experience epic flagship features of the Galaxy S21 FE 5G for Php 38,990 SRP (128GB) and Php 41,990 SRP (256GB), now available on, Samsung Experience Stores, authorized Samsung stores, Lazada, Shopee,, and MemoXpress Online, with amazing color palettes of Olive, Graphite, Lavender, and White.

For flexible payment terms, pay as low as Php 1,624.58/mo at 0% interest for up to 24 months in participating Authorized Samsung Stores.

Get the first-month installment for FREE when you pay at 0% for 24 months using a PNB credit card in select Samsung Experience Stores.

STI to continue 2nd semester with remote learning and online OJT

This health crisis has created the biggest disruption of the educational system in the history of humankind affecting students and learners globally. 

Despite this unfortunate situation, we are happy to share how schools are able to adjust and still maintain high-quality education despite the challenges posed by the health crisis. 

STI to continue 2nd semester with remote learning and online OJT

To ensure students get high-quality instruction in the new normal, STI will continue with its ONline and ONsite Education at STI (ONE STI) Learning Model for its second semester, which will officially begin on February 14, 2022. 

Launched during School Year 2020-2021, the ONE STI Learning Model aims to achieve the desired learning outcome for students by combining online tools with limited onsite or on-campus hands-on training. 

STI will also offer online on-the-job training (OJT) in the upcoming semester, an alternative medium for trainees to develop soft skills and apply what they have learned in school without the need to be physically present at the job location. Trainee-employer engagement will be done via a range of digital resources such as email, chat platforms, videocon, and webinars, among others. 

Following the mandate of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on OJTs during the pandemic, the virtual OJT provides students with work-related opportunities without compromising their health and safety.  

Positive feedback from partners 

STI's 3rd year BA in Communication and Bachelor of Multimedia Arts students were the first batch who underwent the virtual OJT when it piloted last summer of SY 2020-2021.

The communications and multimedia companies that partnered with STI only had positive feedback about the program. Pioneer trainees of the online OJT were able to get onboard in these companies with the help of their OJT advisers.

"Although the threat of COVID-19 is still out there, the online OJT allowed me to gain skills — such as creativity, teamwork, and adaptability — that would empower me to handle various real-world situations and to succeed in my future career," Jessa Jaos of STI College – Cubao, a former online OJT trainee said.

Gwyneth Nuez of STI College Ortigas-Cainta, another former OJT online trainee, expressed gratitude to STI because it found a way for students to undergo valuable job training amidst the restrictions brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Because of the virtual OJT, I can say that my education at STI is complete,” she said.


As you can see, making real-life education is possible and now more accessible. 

Students and transferees looking to enroll at STI for the second semester can receive a holistic and fulfilling learning experience at a reduced cost by applying for the institution’s financial aid programs such as the Pag-IBIG-STI Educational Assistance Program and GSIS-STI Educational Assistance Program. 

STI will also extend its internet connectivity assistance to second semester enrollees to provide them with up to 34GB of monthly data allocation for free that they can use to access learning materials and attend online classes.  

Students who enroll at STI now can take advantage of the institution's quality education under the ONE STI Learning Model. Through it, they have an opportunity to move up in their academics, finish their degree, and eventually embark on their future career despite the challenges of the new normal.
