No pain, no gain baby. Educate yourself with the best investment books available (amazon is your friend on this) and start locking away money in the markets. Stocks, especially options, are a great way to generate solid returns with your capital. Put it to work and stop wasting on garbage. Allow me ...

Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world and as can be expected, one of the most dangerous. I visited in December and decided to skip the capital as I prepared for my trip. Robbery is common and the locals not very accomodating from what I've read. Unemployment is high, wages low, and t...

If your pc is suddenly dragging its feet aross the floor when you're browsing the Internet, it's probably spyware or viruses. If the computer is slow in general, the processor could be outdated, which would require a new pc. If it's the latest games you're trying to access, maybe you should think ab...

If they own the entire building, they can't afford having disgruntled tenants paying twice as much as their neighbours, and more importantly the small dollars mean little to them.

I assume the individuals you will be doing business with in Thailand are not very close friends and if my assumption is correct then you have no legal protection for any transactions that may take place. Why? Because given enough cash they could easily disappear and not think twice about your situat...

If for whatever reason Carrefour has recently pulled Bounty from its shelves, I noticed a stack of at least a hundred boxes of Bounty at Mustafa Center (Farrer Park) last night. They have an enormous section specifically for laundry supplies and the complex is open 24 hours.
