Term life  

Posted by the Writer

Term life insurance is one of the cheapest form of protection. It's coverage is a predetermined number of years and when it matures, you don't get anything in return. That's why it's so cheap which makes it affordable and a good first-insurance product for insurance newbies. Some people with financial know-how may choose to buy a term life insurance for protection with little premium and that complement the investment side with an investment linked or an endowment product. But in the end, it's what's suitable for you that's important. If it's not something you can afford (because investment linked/endowment products can be pricey), just pick something you can afford at the moment and when you can, update your financials accordingly.

Emergency road service  

Posted by the Writer

Just this evening my brother stopped at a gas station and told me he's going to help a man push his broken down BMW. One, that's nice of him. Two, I'd want someone to offer me assistance if and when this happens to me. But hey, doesn't motor insurance usually include emergency road service, but probably as a rider? But if their rates aren't competitive or anything, perhaps you could look elsewhere for roadside assistance when you most need it.

Man's best friends  

Posted by the Writer

Seriously, man's best friends are rolls of gaffer tape (a.k.a. duct tape) and utility knives. I came to know and love them during my internship as a props assistant. Although, you've got to be careful with knives. There weren't many accidents but when I was 12, I cut my finger. The blood just kept dripping. *shudders*
Still, I FREAKING LOVE GAFFER TAPE AND UTILITY KNIVES. Such a man, I am.

Fat burners 2

Someone told me that technology will bring mankind to newer heights while at the same time, make us stupid.
Okay, I lied, no one told me that. Someone did tell me something about how the human brain is shrinking because we don't think any more.

Technology is so pervasive we can't deny it's advantages. But with that, we're getting more fat build-up in concentrated areas of our body. And because we're so technologically-inclined, it seems the right thing to do is to buy fat burners that target different parts of our body. That way, we can continue to be productive and at the same time, "exercise". I will never forget a scene in a documentary or something, on Bruce Lee. He's sitting at his desk typing, with wires hooked up. His muscles are twitching and a device sits by his side. Dude was already in the future!

iPhone temptation  

Posted by the Writer

I've recently been tempted to join the dark side and get an apple iphone for myself. It's mostly self-inflicted peer pressure because the work friend had just gotten one and I'm totally loving the apps. Back to the work friend. She's so addicted, I collaborated with another friend to write her a haiku.

She bit the Apple,
and she hasn't stopped chewing.
Damn Jobs, the serpent.

watches

Why do watches cause so much? And how are 18,000 dollar watches different than 3,000 dollar watches? My uneducated guess is that... the expensive watches are hand made by old professionals and marketing has inflated the cost; and vice versa. So I guess curtis and co watches sit in the continuum between expensive and affordable which means it doesn't lose its prestige while retaining a certain affordability to it.

Payday Advances  

Posted by the Writer

Need a small loan quick? Maybe payday advances are what you need. You only borrow what you can pay back. It is essentially, micro-financing, a form of loan that banks do not like to do because of its high risk. Because of its high risk, interest rates for loans like this can be quite high. Yet, as seen on The Mentalist, business like this don't have bank level security... how does that happen? [But you know, it's TV. It probably ain't true.]
