{Money Mondays} The PDIC,Fractional Reserve Banking and Fiat Money

Sometimes, life deals you a trick card. The shower gets busted (and for you, warm showers are a “need”, not a “want”), the blow dryer suddenly fries (and you are that kind of person who cannot go out without your hair in place), the bedroom TV stopped working after 15 years (and you just have to know how that fifth guy in the reality show confessed he was gay), some dark greasy thing is leaking from the CRV in addition to the car remote going dead for like a millionth time, and transfer taxes on your parents’ estate are bigger than you expected...  (Okaaay,  I just let you take a peek on my shallow now that I am reading it hehe)
Financial gurus have long advised people to have an emergency fund – one that you can dip into in emergency cases like the ones I mentioned above, especially when they happen all at the same time, like the universe is conspiring against you. They advise you to save for a rainy day, save before spending, make a budget...

But what if your emergency fund is in a bank that suddenly goes bankrupt?

{Review} HoneySuckle® Breastmilk Storage Bags

Blogging opened me to this word – advocacy

Before discovering the online world and bloggers passionate with their own causes, I was drifting in my small, offline world, with my mini-advocacies – health, education, etc.  

Until I realized that I lectured practically every pregnant women I see anywhere (it does not matter whether I know them or not) on the benefits of breastfeeding.  And that was when I realized one of my personal advocacies is breastfeeding.

I breastfed my youngest,  Adrian, for five years. 

While working full time.
