Gold Investment, Why Not?

Being a mother I always think about the future of my two kids. Providing their needs in life while they are still young is one of our main priorities as parents. This includes food, shelter, clothing and any other necessities they cannot afford yet especially their education. I’ve been thinking lately on where to invest - contemplating whether I would avail of an educational plan and insurances alike or purchase stocks from stock market to prepare for their collegiate studies.

One of my acquaintances gave me an idea on investing in either bullion or gold bullion. She told me that I would be of no loss as these investments possess an intrinsic value. Some of my friends are telling me to spend on acquiring land properties instead, it could be farm lots or even residential. I am a bit undecided till this time. Our fund is just resting in our bank account but of course I want it to earn more.

More often than not investing comes along with the possibility of not having gain on it. To buy bullion or to buy gold bullion, these things I am trying to consider. Since this is something new to me, I guess I need to learn more about it and have it discussed with my husband. Maybe I should attempt encouraging him about Gold IRA as well.

I am also concern about the liquidity of an investment. Obviously, if I am designating it for my children then it has to be utilizable in the form of cash as the need arise. It may still be too far to assume but I believe it is better this way - to set aside something which will be of their great use in the future. Besides parents always consider what’s best for their children.

BPI Madness

Do you have any BPI cards? Well grab one if you still got one, because you’re missing a lot of freebies! Since January this year, I was enjoying the freebies (Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, Lots’a Pizza, Taco Bell) from using my BPI cards. BPI EPS or savings account ATM is a must on my wallet, I need not bring any cash and yet I can still eat free pizza and ice cream! Hurry, grab your BPI card now!

Pacquiao vs Mosley Fight

Once again the Number One "Pound for Pound" best boxer in the world will still the scene on May 7 with his much awaited fight with Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Definitely Manny Pacquiao gave his best during his training and I know he will give a good fight, I hope Mosley too to increase more tension and excitement in the audience. Want to watch it LIVE and have no tickets yet? Go to this site to purchase and reserve your tickets. Last year my cousin bought his Jersey Boys Tickets and was able to reserved tickets in Pacquiao fight last November. Since he lives in New York, he got tickets on August Wilson Theater in New York. His youngest child will finish High School this year and requests for a Disney on Ice: Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey, he's now saving money on his coin bank to buy three United Center tickets for the September slated show.

It's really a hassle free buying tickets online, good thing a very reliable professional ticket broker offers great prices and discounts too whether in sports, theater and concerts too. I was wondering if they also have a good deal on Daniel Tosh Tickets which are in demand for quite sometime. Tickets can be buy via telephone like the Jersey Boys Tickets and Joel Osteen Tickets, complete schedule and list of venues are available online so visit their website.

Catholic Church won’t allow Robin-Mariel wedding

Robin Padilla and Mariel Rodriguez's plans for a Catholic wedding in June may be headed for a major stumbling block, if a top church official has his way.

Lingayen Archbishop Oscar Cruz, the National Appellate Matrimonial Tribunal head, said in a recent television interview that the Church would not allow the couple's union.

Archbishop Cruz told Studio 23's "Iba Balita ni Anthony Taberna" on Monday, April 4, that the main issue against the wedding was not the Muslim rites administered to the couple but the fact that under Islamic law, the husband is allowed to have more than one wife.

"Ang balakid po diyan, hindi yung kinasal siya [Robin and Mariel] sa Muslim rites. Ang balakid po diyan, ang simbahan, tulad ng maraming simabahang Kristiyano, isa nga diyan ang Katoliko, para sa kanya ang kasal ay para sa isang babae, isang lalake. Tapos ang kwento, panghabang buhay. Eh dun po sa mga Muslim karaniwan sa kanila…naniniwala na ang isang lalake pwedeng dalawa ang asawa tatlo hanggang apat. Sa simbahan hindi pwede ikasal yun pagka't yung kasal na ganun ay walang bisa. Anumang relihiyon para makasal kayo sa simbahan kailangan maniwala kayo sa kanyang aral. Isang lalake, isang babae pang habang buhay. Pag po kayo naniwala na ang isang lalake ay katumbas ng dalawang babae o tatlong babae ay hindi na po pwede yan," the archbishop said.

"Marami naman pong Muslim na hindi ganun ang paniniwala. Basta ang sabi lamang ng simbahan, ang paniniwala ng Muslim igagalang ko, isa, dalawa tatlo ang asawa pero igalang din naman ang doktrina ng mga simbahang Kristiyano, isa na nga diyan ang Catholic Church," he added.

Archbishop Cruz added that even if Padilla swears that this marriage with Rodriguez will be his very last, the Church still won't approve their marriage.

"Titingnan po yung una niyang kasal kung yun po ay may bisa o kung paano man pero hindi naman po agad sasabihin na komo 'Ako'y sa ikalawang kasal hihinto na ako,' hindi naman kaagad ay areglado na. Titingnan po yung una niyang kasal kung yun po ay pwedeng sabihin na walang saysay o meron."

He said the couple should forgo plans for a Catholic wedding.

"Masasabi ko pong hindi po papayagan eh. Hindi po kung ano ang gusto nila at kung ano yung plano nila, hindi po pwedeng ganapin ang kasal na ganun ang paniniwala ng isa sa kanila."

Padilla and Rodriguez surprised the public when they announced they tied the knot through Muslim rites at a mosque in India in August last year.

In a recent interview aired on ABS-CBN, Rodriguez confirmed that she and Padilla are already planning their Catholic wedding. Reports say Bianca Gonzales and Toni Gonzaga will be her bridesmaids and that celebrity stylist Pin Antonio will be one of the principal sponsors. source
