Affiliate Links For Monetization

Well, sponsored posts are dead. Of course, not literally … yet. But they are getting there. Google’s Penguin and Panda updates had been harsh to advertisers who bought links so it really affected my earnings as my blogs heavily depend on sponsored posts. Ads?

Need A House Loan From Pag-Ibig? Not So Fast!

I applied for a housing loan in Pag-Ibig because my wife and I did not have enough cash to secure building our house. So yeah, I submitted the necessary requirements and they called me recently that it got approved.

Not so fast! There were still some requirements that needed to be secured before the checks will be released. One was requirement is to have the forms document stamped at the BIR while the certificate land title is to be annotated at the Registry of Deeds. All the forms meanwhile will have to be notarized by a lawyer first.

Here is where the irony kicks in. I need more money for our house. But nooooo. These freaking requirements cost quite a lot!

  • Document stamping of BIR costs PHP14,000
  • Annotation of certificate land title at Registry of Deeds costs PHP12,000
  • Notarization by a lawyer will depend on the one you go to. If you know someone, better go to them so it will be free.

So yeah … if you plan to secure a housing loan from Pag-Ibig, think again. Make sure you have some bit of cash left in you because these bozos really are going to squeeze your wallets as much as they can.

I mean, seriously?!? Document stamping? Annotation? At those rates?!? Come on!!!

Although I was left with no choice, I was lucky I had a little bit of cash left to be able to pay those damn freaking costs. Or else there would have been no chance to secure a housing loan from them.

Why Engine Tuning Is Important

First things first. Engine tuning is the adjustment, modification of the internal combustion engine or modification to its control unit otherwise commonly known as its ECU. This procedure is done to yield optimal performance, to increase an engine’s power output, economy or durability.

If one does not fine tune one’s vehicle engine, then chances are it won’t provide the expected output that you expect it to yield.

Now, most of us are not very adept at fine tuning our car’s engine. So the best solution is to leave it to the experts. But who?

You can check out the people from Race Chip. They are one of the largest chip tuning companies with well over 100,000 customers around the world. Their well known chip tuning modules called RaceChip®, RaceChip® Pro2 and RaceChip® Ultimate have been developed by their engineers to increase engine power without compromising vehicle components.

These tuning chips can be easily installed in a few minutes. The supplemental control unit provides many vehicles with turbo diesel or turbo petrol engines a power increase of up to 31%. At the same time, one can save up to 1 liter of fuel per hundred kilometers. That is quite a feat if I say so myself.

Their personnel reads data from the engine control unit in real time and optimize many characteristics according to their findings. These data include items such as injection timing, injection quantity, injection pressure, boost pressure and air mass.
