  1. You got my blog name right… Izza. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wala namang special procedure. I suggest open a Metrobank Direct account para mas mabilis mo siyang magawa. Ako kasi I automatically invest a postion of my salary dun sa FAMI every 17th of the month. Then same amount lang siya every month. Hope I answered your question ๐Ÿ™‚
