  Will washing and waxing damage my car’s paint job?

Hi, Top Gear. I’m hoping you could enlighten us. We are newbies in the world of cars, and we just bought our first car. I would like to ask if waxing and washing the car can damage the paint. Since it’s the rainy season, I don’t usually wash it.
Others say washing cars very often can damage the paint. Now we are confused on whom to follow since we can only trust you guys, and you are the only experts that we know. Please help us. Thanks in advance!

World Book Day – NanieGuanlao and his free library in Manila

In the Makati district of Manila in the Phili‚Äčppines, there’s a large sign outside the front of an otherwise unassuming house stating “free reading to the public”. Over the last fifteen years, Ernando ‘Nanie’ Guanlao has transformed his home into a library, open to anyone and everyone.

Starting with only 100 books, the 63 year-old former accountant has spent the last years collecting books for the library. He now piles up more than 1,000 books every year.

“My home, my library. It’s free, for everybody. You’re welcome to drop in, to talk to me, to see me, enjoy my place”, Nanie says, “books are my mission, they are here simply to make people happy.”


The WorldRemit app helps people support initiatives like this back home by letting them send money straight from their smartphone, instead of having to travel to a money transfer agent. Those receiving money– often in developing countries - can collect the funds as mobile money, bank transfer, for cash pickup or as a mobile airtime top-up.

WorldRemit’s service is available to senders in 50 countries. It offers transfers to more than 125 destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas. WorldRemit customers send 400,000 transfers every month.

Mga payong siguradong

magdadala ng gantimpala


May paraan ng pagkukwento ang Panginoong Hesus ng siya ay nagturo noong siya ay nasa lupa pa. Ito ay mga kwento na kung tawagin ay parables o talinhaga. Mga kwento na  naghahalimbawa ng ispirtwal at moral na mensahe mula sa Diyos. May ilang talinhagang matatagpuan sa Lukas 14:7-14 patungkol sa pagpapakumbaba at pagiimbita sa handaan sa mga taong hindi kadalasang naiimbitahan. - “Siya ay nagsabi ng talinghaga sa mga inanyayahan nang mapuna niyang pinipili nila ang mga pangunahing dako. Sinabi niya sa kanila: Kapag inanyayahan kaninuman sa isang kasalan, huwag kang umupo sa pangunahing dako sapagkat baka may inanyayahan pa siyang higit na marangal kaysa sa iyo. Siya na nag-anyaya sa iyo at sa kaniya ay lalapit sa iyo. Sasabihin niya sa iyo: Paupuin mo ang taong ito sa kinauupuan mo. Pagkatapos, ikaw ay mapapahiyang kukuha ng kahuli-hulihang dako. Ngunit kapag ikaw ay inanyayahan, sa pagpunta mo ay maupo ka sa kahuli-hulihang dako. Ito ay upang sa paglapit ng nag-anyaya sa iyo, sasabihin niya: Kaibigan, pumunta ka sa higit na mataas. Pagkatapos, ang karangalan ay mapapasaiyo sa harap ng mga kasama mong nakadulog sa hapag. Ito ay sapagkat ang bawat isang nagtataas ng kaniyang sarili ay ibababa at siya na nagpapakumbaba ay itataas.  Full Article...

Protect your children and your finances

YOU’RE saving and planning for your children’s future and you want what’s best for them. But what would happen if one of your children developed a serious illness?
Thankfully, medical advancements mean better treatments and outcomes for serious illnesses. That said, health-care costs continue to rise and we can expect that we’ll have to pay more of those costs.  Recovery from an illness can be stressful and expensive.
