My Dream Car

(insert tender merc)

Today is the last day of my company’s vehicle tender to be submitted. I bet on two old Mercedes Benzes: S320L (1996 – left) and E280 (1995 – right). I already checked the market value of both cars and I think I put in the right figure.


note: I didnt succeed to win the bid.. maybe it’s too low!  Close case.

El Salvador Currency

July 28, 2006 Comments off

A few nations besides the United States use the U.S. dollar as their official currency, a process known as official dollarization. Ecuador (2000), El Salvador (2001), and East Timor (2000) all adopted the currency independently.
The renminbi used by the People’s Republic of China was informally and controversially pegged to the dollar in the mid-1990s at Y8.28/USD. Likewise, Malaysia pegged its ringgit at RM3.8/USD in 1997. On July 21, 2005 both countries removed their pegs and adopted managed floats against a basket of currencies.

The won is the currency of South Korea. It is subdivided into 100 jeon, although denominations in jeon are no longer used. The Latinised symbol for won, ₩, is made of a letter W with an equal mark (“=”), which replaces the backslash character(“\”) on standard Korean keyboards.
As of July 1, 2006, the rate was
1 USD = ₩947.385
1 EUR = ₩1,211.8
1 CNY = ₩118.489
1 JPY = ₩8.27844

Stingy Man

July 26, 2006 Comments off

The stingy man is one who saves…

Beyond the rainy day…
And far beyond the point where he…

Has any time to play …

He is the one who never wants…

To spend a cent at all…

Not even once to entertain…

The friends who come to call…

He lets you buy his coffee and…

His daily dinner too …

But he will never use his purse…

To do the same for you …

He always claims that he is broke…

When in reality…

He merely wants to gather up…

Whatever goods are free…

while he may enjoy the things…

He gets from day to day…

He never knows the greater joy…

Of giving them away.James J. Metcalfe

Stingy Brahma

July 26, 2006 Comments off

“A man, O King, is poor; he lacks religious conviction; he is stingy and miserly; he has evil thoughts; he holds the wrong views, and is disrespectful.He abuses and curses samanas, brahmanas and other mendicants; he is a non-believer in action and its consequence, and he has a sharp tongue.

He prevents the giving of food to those who ask for it. Such a man, O King, Ruler of Men, goes to the dreadful realms of continuous suffering when he dies. He is the one who is in darkness and who goes into darkness.”

Highest honour for Sean

July 25, 2006 2 comments

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Sean Connery grew up in a two-room flat, working odd jobs from a young age to earn extra money for his family.
Connery first hit the big screen in Lilacs in the Spring in 1954. He arrived in America with Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure and Darby O’Gill and the Little People, both in 1959.
But it was not until he was cast as Agent 007 in Dr No, that Connery shot to fame.
He inaugurated one of the longest-running series in film history. He starred as Bond in:

From Russia with Love
You Only Live Twice
Diamonds Are Forever
Never Say Never Again
