Coins Counting

In the effort to minimize spending, I like breaking bills into coins and store the coins up in "savings" jars. It helps me stop spending, since I feel like I've been using up all my cash (when in fact I haven't).

So after collecting coins for a year, I have jars full of pennies, quarters, toonies, loonies, and probably some buttons and foreign countries' coins. It is time to trade them into cash. So off to the bank we went.

Imagine our surprise when the teller told us that we need to roll them all up nicely (manually) before trading them in. They don't have coin-counting machines in any of the branches (even in the head office). This was ridiculous. Even back in a third world country such as mine, all banks have the coin-counting machine. This is Canada! Besides, if we had them all rolled up nicely, we wouldn't need to trade them in.

So, off to Google we researched. And yup, everyone apparently had the same problem. And the only place that would trade your coins into bills are casino. Yes, that's right. Casino! We called around and found that a nearby casino stopped offering that service recently. Another call to River Rock Casino confirmed that they still provided this coins-to-bills service.

We haven't gone there yet, but does anyone know who else provides this kind of service? Banks, where every money-related transactions should occur, do not have it. And we live quite far away from River Rock Casino.

Guides to Virtual Choir

Dalam rangka pandemi ini, paduan suara tidak dapat berlatih bersama, apalagi melayani bersama. Karena itu, maka mulailah inisiatif untuk mengadakan paduan suara online, untuk pelayanan.  Agar hasilnya bisa optimal, anggota paduan suara perlu mengingat, bahwa mereka bernyanyi bukan sebagai solois, tapi sebagai bagian dari paduan suara yang besar. Jadi meskipun saat rekaman, kadang merasa kurang sempurna, selama anggota paduan suara memberikan yang terbaik (bukan asal-asalan yah), saya percaya Tuhan memberkati pelayanan kita semua. Nah, tentu saja ada beberapa tips yang bisa kita ikuti, supaya hasil rekaman bisa bagus dan maksimal. Contohnya: rekaman memakai tripod dalam ruangan yang pencahayaan cukup dan tidak membelakangi matahari/sumber cahaya adalah beberapa cara yang bisa kita pakai untuk menaikkan kualitas video kita. Berikut ini adalah guidelines / tips untuk merekam video untuk paduan suara online, yang aku buat untuk PS Agape. Semoga bisa membantu. Note: Panduan ini

Meiji Black Chocolate Puzzle

I recently bought a Meiji Black Chocolate Puzzle, thinking it would be fun to play with kids, especially while waiting for our food in the restaurant. I mean, this is better than screen time, right? Little did I know.. this puzzle is actually the harder version of the milk chocolate puzzle (which I didn't know exist). Now, THAT puzzle has lots of solutions and would be fun for kids. But this one? THIS puzzle has ONE solution (according to the YouTube video I watched, anyway). After several hours of frustrating "why is this not working" moments, I caved in and watched the YouTube solution. For my own reference (and sanity), here's the solution. For the next time I need to clean the puzzle up quickly. Hope this helps whoever is currently stuck and ready to give up...
