List of Books My Family Wants to Read

Indonesians are not known for their love of books. But luckily for us, our mother is a bookworm and our father is a student-at-heart-for-life. So their children inherit a love for books.

The following is a list of books my brother wants to read:
And my sister's book list:
From angku Fendy's:
From Chris:
I haven't read most of the books, but it would be interesting to know what they are all about. Looking at the list, though, I realize that our family has a very diverse interests; everyone is interested about something unique.

Oh well, I just hope the future generations will still like reading.

Did you know you can get some of those books in large print and audio format? I don't know if any of your family uses large print, but they make great gifts for people who have trouble with standard print size. Here's a site I know that has a lot of books: http://www.readhowyouwant.com/

Amigurumi: Single Pea and Deadly Cute Ninja

I think I was bitten by the craft bugs. Here's my next creation: the single pea (because making 3 of them in solid green is just too much for my eyes) and the deadly but cute ninja. Chris called them Peany and Ninji. Peany, Dora, Ninji, and Mushy posing together It's hard to see from this photo, but Ninji actually has a sling (in a slightly different color) around his body, and a mini ninja star. And talk about proportion... the vegetables are larger than the cat and the person. Makes you wonder, isn't it?

On Typing...

Does people realize that: 1. misspelling a word makes them look uneducated, and 2. using shorthand in emails makes them look 5 ?? Emails are NOT telegrams! You cannot save money by typing less characters in your emails, people! (I can understand if it's in SMS). Ugh! (Just have to vent...) >_<

Tax-Free Saving Account in ING DIRECT

A while back, the government of Canada suddenly realized that Canadians did not save their money as much as they hoped. So, to goad Canadians into saving, they introduced the Tax-Free Saving Account (TFSA) that basically allows up to $5,000 per year contribution to grow tax-free. How the TFSA Works Starting in 2009, Canadians aged 18 and older can save up to $5,000 every year in a TFSA. Contributions to a TFSA will not be deductible for income tax purposes but investment income, including capital gains , earned in a TFSA will not be taxed , even when withdrawn. Unused TFSA contribution room can be carried forward to future years. You can withdraw funds from the TFSA at any time for any purpose. The amount withdrawn can be put back in the TFSA at a later date without reducing your contribution room. Neither income earned in a TFSA nor withdrawals
