One Fun Way to Increase Your Typing Speed

I have encountered this site when I was having my training as a Nurse Coordinator in my previous job. My typing skill then was not so impressive. The first time I took this typing test, I only got 15wpm (yes, my typing skill was NOT so good). However, I got the chance to improve it. Not instantly of course but with the help of this site.
Compared with Touch Type Tutor, this is more fun to use. Aside from its unique way of getting your wpm (word per minute) count, you can get the chance to know some random news in the web. You can see yourself trying to finish the whole article in just a minute because you are so interested with the topic that you are typing. Thus, allow your typing skill to improve.
You can choose topics from Technology, Sports, Entertainment, Health and Business. Most of the time, I clicked the health and the business news because those two are the most interesting topics for me. You can choose your own. It’s just so addicting. You get to know something new and at the same time, getting your typing skill in place.
This is the page where you get to type the words that were gotten from BBC news. Yes, it’s from BBC news because I checked it myself. And it’s the most recent news you can see there.
However, I have discovered one great way to use this as you review your notes. Example you have a test and you want to review it, you can also use this site by clicking on MY TEXT and start pasting your notes there and those are the words that you will be typing.
Tutorials-Keyboarding-MY text
As you type the words, you can also get the chance to remember each word and sometimes, you don’t only familiarize yourself but can also memorize them. (That is what I used when we had some test after the training. haha!)
Two birds in one stone. You get to review your notes and increase your typing speed.
I hope this could help you increase and improve your typing skill in a fun way.
Enjoy the fun guys!
PS: Thanks to my previous trainer Ms Julie who introduced this to us.

A New Way to Save Your Money

Just this morning I was able to receive my BPI Save-Up Card which looks like this:

I enrolled for this BPI service last month when I got curious when I saw the flyers which says, it will AUTOMATICALLY deduct certain amount from your pay roll to your savings account. It made me feel giddy because since I worked this year, I rarely had the guts and ability to save up. No matter how much I like because I am some kind of an impulsive buyer. It allows you to save up without effort. The first thing you do is apply for a BPI account. Good thing was, I have one because of my payroll from my company. Then, apply for the BPI Direct Save – Up account which will allow you to save at least 250 php or save up to 10-20% every pay day depending on your preference.  You could also choose whether to save your money twice a month (every pay day) or monthy (every end of the month). 
I highly recommend this way of saving to those people who had a hard time saving up like me. At least, you can save a certain amount from your salary per month and since it will fall to a different account number which is not an ATM based account.
You can access your Save – up money balance through BPI express online and BPI express Mobile. 
But first, you must activate the enrollment of your BPI Direct Account in BPI express phone..
1. Call 89-100
2. Press 1 for Express Teller
3. Key-in your 11-digit access number (last ten digits of your card number and the first digit of your JAI- Joint Account Indicator)
4. Key-in the UNique Temporary Telephone ID number (will be mailed to you with the card and you can change this number and will serve as your password to your account)
5. Enter your preferred TIN.
After changing your TIN, you can acquire for your balance and could allow you to do more transactions. 
**PS: there are times that you can forget that you have applied to this Save up account and might think you are loosing some of your hard earned money!haha!NEVER EVER FORGET about your SAVE up account.  =-p
