Good day!
My name is Nora Tamba
I’ve some fascination with banks.
I should have been a banker.
But what I’ve studied in college and applied for 4 years in a production setting was industrial engineering, and for the next 7 years, I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) and Math to refugees under the US Refugee Admissions Program. Later, I went into small business for 2 years, and failed, but I left with lots of lessons learned.
For the past 11 years, I’ve been working online for a company in Florida, assisting clients, helping with transactions and contracts, writing posts, managing files and databases, improving websites and handling marketing programs. I also manage and create content for my blogs, with the first ones I launched in 2008.

Someday, I’ll build a rural bank somewhere.Ā  šŸ™‚

As the name suggests, this blog is all about Philippine banking.

My main information sources are my own experiences with banks, and the websites of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas,Ā  Philippine Deposit Insurance Co. (PDIC), all Philippine banks, banks in the US, UK, Australia, China, India and other countries, regulatory bodies in other countries like the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, California Department of Business Oversight, UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and news organizations in the Philippines and other countries.

Thanks a lot for visiting.

There are realities we all share,
regardless of our nationality, language, or individualĀ tastes.
As we need food,
so do we need emotional nourishment:
and supportĀ from others.
