Matteo sa budget ng kasal nila ni Sarah: Hindi ko pa alam kung magkano, pero dapat realistic!




NANGAKO si Matteo Guidicelli na hindi niya itatago sa madlang pipol kapag nag-propose na siya kay Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo. Wala naman daw dahilan para isikreto ang ganu’n kaimportanteng bagay sa kanilang mga tagasuporta.

Ayon sa binata, isa sa mga #lifegoals ni Matteo ay ang magkaroon ng sariling pamilya in the future, pero hindi pa raw ito ang tamang panahon para pag-usapan ang kasal nila ni Sarah G..

“You know, when I was 18 years old, when I was 20, I said I wanna get married when I’m 27. I’m 27 now! So, tingnan natin, that’s something private that I’d like to keep with me.

“Siyempre, I want to make a surprise to my partner and make it a surprise for myself. That day will come. And when that day comes, people will know,” paliwanag ni Matteo sa presscon ng bagong ad campaign ng Sun Life Financial, ang “Make It Mutual.”

Wala pa rin daw sa immediate priorities niya ang mag-propose kay Sarah, pero naiisip na raw niya kung kailan ito mangyayari, “Actually, alam ko, pero secret na lang. We’ll see. All these life goals are going to be realistic to me.”

Sa tanong kung magkano ang iipunin niya para sa wedding nila ng kanyang girlfriend, “Kaya nga may mutual fund ako, e. Ha-hahaha!” Dugtong ng binata, “Hindi ko pa alam. I-research ko pa. I don’t know how much I should set aside, we have to think about that pa. Pero siyempre, it has to be something realistic.”

Ayon pa kay Matteo, ang role model niya pagdating sa relationship goals ay ang kanyang mga magulang, “We’re all planning that one day, we’d like to tie the knot and move on to the next chapter.

“Where we put up our own families and build our own homes with our children. That’s the ladder that I wanna follow from how my parents raised me. Parang ngayon, I’d like to climb my own ladder, too, from zero.

“From how I started in showbiz up to today, I’d like to climb. Hopefully, all those life goals, I’ll achieve them along the way,” chika pa ni Matteo.

Samantala, sa pamamagitan ng Sun Life Asset Management Company, maglalabas ng series of vlogs (video blogs) ang SL Financial featuring Matteo kung saan tuturuan ang mga Pinoy, kabilang na ang mga millennial, kung paano makakatulong ang tamang investment sa kanilang #lifegoals.

Dubbed “Make It Mutual,” the vlogs will tackle topics relevant to personal finance, such as growing one’s money, beating inflation and investing regularly. To make it easy for the viewer to relate these to real life, the modules shall be demonstrated in themes familiar to them, like travel, fashion, and fitness, among others. All videos will be shared via social media to make it readily accessible.

Sey ni Matteo, “I’m thankful for the opportunity to lead another financial literacy campaign for SLAMC. It’s definitely relevant and timely. I myself have life goals I’d like to pursue, and I’m happy to share that ever since I ‘made it mutual’ with Sun Life, I’ve been well on my way to achieving all those goals. It would be great if more Filipinos can experience the same.”

Ayon kay SLAMC President Valerie Pama, “We are committed to helping more Filipinos discover the benefits of investing so they may reap its rewards. The latest in SLAMC’s efforts to boost financial literacy among Filipinos, Make It Mutual aims to encourage Filipinos to invest in mutual funds so they can achieve their life goals.”
