Brands We Love & Mispronounce All the Time

There are brands we love and well, just because we love them is not an assurance that we pronounce them right at all 🙂 How do you say Porsche? What about Adidas, Givenchy and Hermes?

Watch this video from Business Insider and then let’s begin to pronounce these brands as they should be 🙂

In just a couple of months, we will be welcoming the month of December! It seemed to me as if my husband and I were just putting away our Christmas decorations for 2014 a few days ago and now the Christmas season will again be here.

Reminder: Old Philippine Peso Bills Can Only Be Used Until December 2015

Now, if you have “hoards” of the “old” Philippine peso bills, you need not panic. While these old bills will only be valid until end of December this year, you can still exchange them in banks and in the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) offices.

Reminders from BSP:

1. The public may still use the old banknotes until December 31, 2015, in paying and buying of goods and services and other business or financial transactions requiring the use of cash. These old banknotes will no longer be accepted for payment transactions after the last day of the year..

2. The public, without charge, may exchange the old banknotes with the New Generation Currency at full face value with authorized financial institutions (such as universal and commercial banks, thrift banks, rural as well as cooperative banks) and with BSP or any of its regional offices or branches from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2016. Click here for list of BSP offices and branches.

3. As for government institutions still in possession of old banknotes which could not be exchanged during the prescribed period (such as banknotes used as evidence in a litigation case), they will have to request the BSP Cash Department in writing, within the period of exchange, for a special exchange arrangement.

4. Now, for overseas Filipinos who still have old banknotes but would not be able to exchange them within the given period, they may register online starting October 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 through the BSP website. The old banknotes in their possession may be exchanged with the BSP within one year from the date of online registration.

5. By January 1, 2017, final good byes to the old banknotes should have been done as these banknotes will no longer have any monetary value, and are considered demonetized.

It’s Time to Change the Light with WiFi RGBW LED Bulb

Have you switched to using LED bulbs at home? It was my husband who suggested earlier this year that we should go ahead and use LED bulbs for our home lighting instead of the incandescent ones we have been using. And if you think LED bulbs do not have unique qualities that go with it, think again.

Introducing the WiFi RGBW LED Bulb. You may never look at incandescent light bulbs or the typical LED bulbs the same way again. You can also check out More Smart Light Bulb Here, by the way. With the WiFi RGBW LED Bulb, you can personalize your light with a color palette of over 16 million colors! Think about that! If you feel like using some blue lighting today or a little bit on the side of red for a romantic evening, no need to change bulbs or light source for the evening. Not only that, you can choose how dim or bright your light should be for the night or for the day since you can adjust the bulb’s brightness.

With the WiFi RGBW LED Bulb, you also have the option to choose the time setting so that for instance, if you choose the sleep mode, the bulb’s brightness will be decreasing before it totally shuts off. And thanks to the latest technology, you can simply control it with your smartphone or tablet. Neat, huh? You can use the bulb for your lamps (whether floor, desk, bed) or even for your background light and even for that ballroom.

Now if you are worried that using this may be complicated, fear not. You just need to screw in the bulb, download the free app and connect to the bulb’s WiFi endpoint. It’s as simple as that, really. And do know that just as my husband has said that using LED bulbs means saving energy, so it is indeed with the WiFi RGBW LED bulb. You just consume 6 watts when you use it 🙂
