Drama Queen no more?

Of course NOT!


I am and will forever be a Drama Queen.


I might have deviated for a while from my usual post but I have valid reason for that. And that’s because my other laptop finally gave up. So that means I ended with only one which I use to do other online stuffs and watching online can slow me down. Blah blah blah. I am also guilty of watching American TV seriesone after another like True Blood, Vampire Diaries, How I Met Your Mother, Heroes and House (those are downloaded and supplied to me).

(Viao gave up on me huhuhu)


But I will definitely be back. I have tons of pending KDrama, TwDrama and JDrama on my Watch List.


Come to think of it should I change my subtitle as Addicted to Drama Series? Not just Asian that is. Hmmm…


Btw, YTBC has only 8 more days to go so let’s volt-in all our efforts to its success!

Municipal Bonds Are a Good Way to Start an Investment Portfolio

Many people do not realize that the best way to make money is through investments. An investment is a way for your money to make you more money. What could be better than that? There are many different types of investments and there is no one best type because they all have their advantages and disadvantages. If you are interested in making a financial investment, you should do research on the Internet and talk to a financial advisor about your concerns.

The two major types of investments are stocks and bonds. When you buy stock in a company, you essentially own a small portion of the business. If the company does well, then you have a good investment. When you purchase a bond, you do not own a part of a company; you are simply loaning money to them with the agreement that they will pay you interest on the amount they borrow from you. Some people prefer to invest in stocks because they can have a huge return on investments, but people who prefer less risky investments enjoy bonds because the amount of money you will receive is determined ahead of time, and you will receive your initial investment back when the bond reaches maturity.

If you are interested in a minimal risk investment, then municipal bonds (munis) are a good way to start building an investment portfolio. Muni rates fluctuate according to the economy, but you will have a fixed interest rate when you purchase the bond. Municipal bonds are issued by companies or the government as a way to pay for projects that do not have tax funding. They can be a great investment because they pay interest every six months and can have a term between one month and over ten years.

My Wish on Mother's Day

I have two moms, one is my real-biological mom and the other is my one-and-only-godmother (ninang).

They are best friends, my ninang took care of me since day 1 (my mom is clueless at that time) and she had to work. When we had to transfer to the province when I was in HS she really had a hard time coping up, she would cry a lot, her son even said to her “sya lang ba anak mo?” That’s how she loved me and I do love her too (my mom knows that!). I continued to visit them but you know along the way something always comes up. And now that I am working abroad, I try to visit her every time I came home for vacation.

During these last years she had a lot of health complications and the latest was her thyroid operation didn’t work out that fine. I am really afraid I might not be able to see her on my next vacation which is on December.

We are open to the inevitable, we do not wish for her to suffer more but still I want to be a little selfish.

And here comes my wish:

I wish to see her again, to hug her, to thank her, to listen to her stories on my growing up years…

I wish to greet her HAPPY MOTHERS DAY for more years to come.

Tips for Online Sports Book Gambling

Gambling with online sports books has increased so much in the past decade that many players, even those who reside in Las Vegas, would rather make a sports bet online than leave the comfort of their homes to drive to their local sports book. Before choosing a mouse and monitor over live bookies, consider these tips to make an online betting experience a more profitable venture.
There are hundreds of online sports books all over the globe, so it's critical to do research and develop a plan. Sports book gambling will not make players wealthy overnight, but it's a long-term commitment of money, research, time and experience to reach the biggest rewards.
Before the first wager, a player should contact a lawyer to learn if offshore betting is even legal in the area he or she lives. Only bet with sports books that dwell in countries with firm gaming commissions and regulations. Australia, Antigua, Austria, Belize, Gibraltar, Jamaica and England are some countries with stern gaming licensing practices and firm gaming commissions.
After making sure that online sports book gambling is legal, setting up a specific bank account exclusively for winnings will make reporting the income to the IRS a cinch. An online account opened with a reputable sports book will suffice as well. Players should use a basic spreadsheet to record plays, wins and losses for each year that gambling occurred.
Players must stay alert to what's important in the sports world by reading the newspapers, watching television or listening to the radio. Information should be analyzed and decisions made quickly before the rest of the sports book gaming world chooses the same bets. Internet articles from trustworthy sources from around the globe can help a player make the best wager possible. Vital information is imperative when making a big wager; the big money is riding on it.

Direct TV in Florida Provides HD and Local Channels

When it comes to Direct TV Florida, residents have just as many choices as consumers in other states. Satellite TV provider DIRECTV can connect its system to any home or business with a clear view of the Southern sky. In over 90% of homes, the company includes local TV channels, depending on the service address. According to its website, you can get local channels in several of the major cities across Florida, including Daytona, Jacksonville, Fort Walton Beach, Fort Myers, Pensacola, Tallahassee, and Miami. While you may have heard Direct TV has trouble with service during weather, the company reports full service capacity over 95% of the time.

Direct TV Florida often includes HD packages with service options. To access the higher-quality images and sounds, you'll need an HD receiver from the company. Once you have this, you can watch your local channels in high definition, depending on whether or not the channel broadcasts in HD. Some local channels using HD include NBC, Fox, CBS, and CWD. With direct TV Florida, sports fans can watch HD events for the Marlins, the Dolphins, or the Panthers. Sports coverage keeps you posted on the games when your team plays out of town. In addition to its regular packages, DIRECTV has specialty sports packages like its NFL Sunday Ticket, which offers 14 games every Sunday compared with four games with other cable providers.

Depending on your location in Florida, you may want to find a Direct TV Florida provider that offers additional services like satellite Internet. You may be able to bundle the service with satellite TV, making it easy to connect to the web in areas that have issues getting DSL. Some Direct TV Florida providers also offer home security systems, which they can install while they connect your TV service.
