English to Tagalog: More Happiness in Giving General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Advertising / Public Relations
Source text - English “Money makes you happy—if you give it away,” reads a headline in The Globe and Mail of Canada. Although most people surveyed predicted that spending on themselves would make them happier, those who used their money to help others—regardless of the amount spent—actually reported greater happiness. “Wealth is not a predictor of happiness, study after study has shown,” says the newspaper. “Once people have enough money to meet their basic needs, getting more of it doesn’t give them much of a boost.”
Translation - Tagalog “Mapaliligaya ka ng pera—kung mamimigay ka,” ang sabi ng ulong balita ng The Globe and Mail ng Canada. Bagaman iniisip ng karamihan sa mga sinurbey na magiging mas maligaya sila kapag ginamit nila ang kanilang pera para sa kanilang sarili, ang mga gumamit ng kanilang pera para tumulong sa iba—gaano man kaliit ang halaga—ang talagang nagsabi na naging mas maligaya sila. “Hindi garantiya ng kaligayahan ang kayamanan, gaya ng ipinakikita ng napakaraming pag-aaral,” ang sabi ng pahayagan. “Kapag may sapat nang pera ang mga tao para mabili ang pangunahin nilang mga pangangailangan, ang pagkakaroon ng higit pang pera ay hindi na makadaragdag pa sa kanilang kaligayahan.”

I am hardworking and sincere person. I am enthusiastic about taking up new challenges in life.Friendly and joyful are what my friends would describe me as. I'm very trustworthy, I hate to lie, but I also don't like hurting people. So I would just tell that person some of it, not the whole truth unless I feel it necessary to give it out all. I work well in any environment with perseverance.
