Some links about personal financial management:

p/s: What do I need to save now?
  1. For the “rainy seasons”, such as to repair my car, my house, my computer, and “anything” that need to be “repaired”.
  2. For education and career development: self and my children.
  3. To finance my hobby…such as to buy new camera, lens, bag, etc…and also: training, outing, and related items (computer software and hardware).
  4. Travel and leisure…
  5. Going pilgrimage to Holy Land (Mecca and Medina).
  6. Buy a new car….when needed.
  7. Retirement….there will be no monthly pension for me…but there will BND250 Old Age Pension when I reach 60 years old (*correct me if I am wrong).
  8. And a lot more reasons for me to save money NOW.

….the hard part is COMMITMENT and DETERMINATION….as well as the ability to make THE RIGHT DECISION in a given situation and time.

Awang Keeran Janin is going to do the introduction and the demonstration.

p/s: May be I should check back my digital photos album to see if there are “interesting photos” (in high resolution) to sell or just share (in addition to this blog and low resolution photos in the Facebook) at FaceBook/ YouGotSnapped… “interesting photos”…and it may “not necessarily high quality photos”…but it should be in high resolution.

High resolution?...I think I need to convert the selected edited photos in RAW to jpeg again. This is because most of my jpeg files are in low resolution. In addition, I should crop the photos in 2:3 aspect ratio…but: Should I? I think it depend who want the photos.

Most of my photos I have cropped in 16:9 aspect ratio. This is due to I mainly viewing my photos on the widescreen computer display…and somedays through my LCD television. But, if I want to print the photos, I usually crop them in 2:3 aspect ratio.
