How I Fixed My Car Lighter Socket for Less Than $0.50 (20 Pesos)!

I have been using my car for almost five years now and it breaks my heart when a sudden car feature malfunction occurs. I was so sad when I learned that my lighter socket didn’t worked when I tried to put the cellphone mobile charger in it.

Last Christmas, my sister gave me a car kit. This includes a car ashtray and a car cellphone charger. I always complain that I can’t charge in my car because it has no USB port install in it but I never thought of buying one which can be inserted in the car lighter socket. lol. Until now, I’m still not sure why I didn’t buy one for myself which is very unlikely. I always find a solution when a problem arises but this time, for being a cheapskate is the reason why I didn’t buy one for myself.

Hard Hitting Facts From A Small Franchise Food Fart Owner

I am a thirty year old corporate slave working 40 hours a week. With a more than decent and regular monthly salary from a reputable company, I managed to set aside portion of it for a long time. It’s been 10 years of working and saving and the last time I checked, my savings are already in six digits.

Looking at the monthly interest earned given by my bank, I was a little bit of disappointed. My bank offers a very, very low 1.5% per annum (gross of withholding taxes) which is unacceptable for me.

My husband convinced me to venture in a small business where I can put my idle money sleeping at my bank account. To cut the story short, we gambled our money in a small business.

Why I Will Not pay for Fixers in LTO and So Should You!

Before entering LTO, you will notice that several people will approach you and ask you relentlessly if you need a driver’s license or if you’re there to renew.

These folks are known as the ‘FIXERS’. They are the to-go-to-guys who promises you a successful and hassle free application/transaction provided that you can pay their services.

For the sake of everyone, I had this condition for about seven months already. At first, I ignored it because it was just a very small rash, more of a size of a coin. I didn’t bother to address this small skin problem because (again) it’s just a small rash …

PLDT Ultera SUCKS!!! Here are the things you need to know before getting one!

Internet Plan has been a huge issue in the Philippines. Many claims (including me) that the plans offered by the Telecom Giants are too expensive in terms of the speed you get. There are alot of debates about this going on. If I’m not mistaken, local news programs already picked up this issue.
