Choosing A Credit Card - What To Consider

Today I would not blog about my Model Life, I would prefer something related to my full time career, which is financial and banking related.

Many people own credit card, some have many credit cards and some have sub credit card for their family members or lovers....


How to choose a right credit card to meet your need? Here are some advice from the our financial experts:

One of the reasons that there are so many credit cards to choose from is that not every card is right for everyone. If you pay off your balance every month, you will want a different card than someone who carries a balance. Also, if you charge enough, you might be willing to pay an annual fee in order to receive rewards like airline miles in proportion to your purchases. Use the sites in this section to find out which card is best for you.

We recommend that you limit yourself to one or two credit cards. This makes it easier to keep track of your balances and to avoid mistakes like late payments and penalties. It can also help your credit rating, since people who have a large number of credit cards tend to be viewed as more of a credit risk.

Some factors that you might want to consider when choosing a credit card:

Fees: This is probably the most important consideration. Fees include the annual fee, the interest rate charged on balances (called the Annual Percentage Rate or APR), late payment penalties, and any other fees they charge. If you plan to pay your bill in full every month (as we strongly recommend), you'll want to find a card with no annual fee. If you expect to carry a balance, you'll want to choose a card with a very low interest rate, ideally one that guarantees that low rate for an extended period. Find out if there is a grace period before interest starts accruing, and if so, how long it is. Also find out how interest is calculated (for example, the average daily balance of the last cycle, or of the last two cycles, or something else entirely). Some issuers charge a fixed APR, while others charge a rate that's tied to an index such as the prime lending rate. Finally, find out whether there are any other charges, and under what circumstances they are assessed. For example, most credit card issuers charge a fee for cash advances, and some charge a fee when you close the account.

Acceptance: Some cards are accepted at more locations than others. The two that are the most popular in the United States are Visa and Mastercard, and both are accepted at just about every merchant who accepts credit cards. American Express, which is a non-revolving credit card, is also relatively popular. If you're considering another type of card, be sure that it is accepted at the types of places where you will want to use it.

Perks: A lot of credit cards come with benefits, such as rebates and frequent flier miles. Try to estimate the dollar value of any such benefits when deciding which card to select.

Credit Limit: This is the maximum amount that you are allowed to charge on the card (until you pay some of it off). In general, the more they allow you to borrow, the better, as long as you plan to pay the full amount each month. Otherwise, it can be dangerous to have too high of a credit limit, because if you're not careful, you could dig a hole that's tough to get out of.

There are several ways to search for credit card offers. The simplest is to open your mailbox, which probably supplies you with a steady stream of credit card offers. But as with most things, the simplest solution is not necessarily the best. Fortunately, the internet can help you track down the best credit card offers. Try to find two or three cards that meet your requirements, and then compare them. Read the fine print, to confirm that you understand all the terms of the agreement.

In order to obtain information on credit cards with low Annual Percentage Rates (APR), visit the Cardweb website. Another source of information is BankRate.



You may currently have a credit card that you're reasonably happy with, but are getting offers for cards with significantly lower rates. But look before you leap. These so-called "teaser rates" are generally offered only for a very short time period, after which the rate returns to normal (in other words, high). Find out how long the introductory rate will be in effect, and decide beforehand what you will do when the rate goes up. Some people try to jump from one introductory rate to another, but the issuers are making this increasingly difficult because they don't want customers who do this. Before switching, it's worth contacting your current issuer and telling them you're thinking about switching, and asking if they can lower the rate. Sometimes they will do this, because they spend a lot of money acquiring new customers, especially profitable ones who carry a balance, and they don't want to lose you.

How Model Photos Were Taken

This video shows how a Model Photo Shooting were taken.



Imagine in a very hot weather and we have to post for the photo shooting, we are very thirsty and hungry yet have to show our smile and pretend we are very happy and enjoying. We as models have to show the best and the brightest side no matter what is happening to us and surrounding us.

I remember one of my friend, her brother was killed in a road accident during her photo shot in one of the important publication, she is very very sad but still has to put up a very happy face when facing camera, I feel she is very strong and me and my friend respect her very much.

My Favorate Tom Yum Gong





There are variety of delicious food in Thailand, one of the famous and also my favorite Thai food is Tom Yum Gong, the meaning of "Gong" in Thai mean Prawn or shrimp, usually we will choose the prawn not too big and not too small, a medium size prawn make the best taste.



There are many Tom Yum sellers stall along the main road in Bangkok area and trust me, the taste is much better the the food you can find in some good hotel, sometimes a tourist might think that preparation of food along the road side may have some hygiene problem, but we take the food a lot without any problem.






Here is my Recipe for making Delicious Tom Yum Gong
"Tom Yum Goong" - Spicy Shrimp Soup

Tom Yum is very Simple and Easy to cook, this hot and sour Thai soup that is great as an appetizer or as a main dish when served with rice. Its robust fragrance is sure to tempt your tastebuds.

Serves 6


Ingredients:
1/2 pound peeled shrimp
4 cups chicken stock
1 tablespoon chili oil
10 lime leaves (kaffir leaf)
3 tablespoons lime juice
4 stalks green onion
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 cup whole straw mushrooms
3 stalks fresh lemongrass
6 fresh Thai chilies (prik kee noo)


Directions:
1. Prepare the chicken stock in a medium to large sized pot, and then bring to a boil.
2. Add the lime leaves and lemongrass stalks to the pot, and reduce the heat to simmering. Cook for five minutes.
3. Remove only the lemongrass, and turn the heat to high. Add in the shrimp, mushrooms, chili oil, and the Thai chilies. Boil until the shrimp are done (about 2 minutes)
4. Remove from stove, you're almost done!
5. Add in the fish sauce and limejuice, and stir. Some like it more sour, others more salty. You decide on what makes you happy.
6. The most important step!!! Enjoy.

Thai Girl = Sex ?

In my opinion and most of my chat with my friendly visitors coming from every corner of the world, 80% of them is asking for sex chat, sex cam, cyber sex, or escort service from me.

I am very disappointed and feel very sad for this very wrong stereotype about our Beautiful Thailand and our Beautiful and friendly Thai Lady.

There are of cause some percentage of Thai ladies providing sex service coming from poor family and sub urban area, they want to make a living and give money to their parent, because their family are very poor and they have no education, the only thing that can make them faster income and more money is provide sex service. This is also true to almost all countries in the world, be it in Europe, USA or other Asia countries, don't you find there are also sex services in your own country?

It is because Thailand sex service is cheaper, therefore visitors come to Thailand find that there pay less to get more, so they like it so much and mistaken that most of the Thai Ladies are sex provider and this is not true at all.













To the people who have already worked here in Thailand and who have already understand this, please help to validate my statement here.

Thank you very much.

Mo Modeling Life

I love modeling and I enjoy to see myself in fashion magazine and some publication.

I only do modeling part time because I am very busy working in the bank during my normal day, my client always tease me that they would like to keep the magazine with my picture so that they can see me everyday.


I love both of my job, I will not stop modeling and I will not quit my current job.

The People of Thailand

Our Thai People are Friendly People.

We greeting people with "Sawade", If you are man, you should say Sawade Cup, Lady should say Sawade Kah.



Today, the people of Thailand share a rich ethic diversity - mainly of Mon, Khmer, Tai, Chinese, Malay, Laotian, and Indian stock - with the result that there is no typically Thai physiognomy or physique. There are petite Thais, statuesque Thai, round faced Thais, dark-skinned Thais, and light-skinned Thais.

About 80% of all Thais are connected in some way with agriculture, which (in varying degrees) influences and is influenced by the religious ceremonies and festivals that help make Thailand such a distinctive country.javascript:void(0)

The Beautiful Thailand and Thai People


Thailand is a hot and rather humid tropical country. In fact many people living in Thailand joke that it has three seasons, hot, hotter and hottest - this is easily believed. The climate is monsoonal, marked by a rainy season lasting from about May to September and a relatively dry season for the remainder of the year. The rainy season will amaze many a tourist as it can rain very heavily sometimes for up to just 10 minutes a go, but the sheer volume of water is incredible. Temperatures are highest in March and April and 'lowest' in December and January. The average temperature is about 23 to 35 Celsius.



One of the most beautiful aspects of the Thai people is their respect and enormous love for their monarchy. It is very unwise and actually could lead to serious trouble to say anything bad about the monarchy. They are loved dearly, and you will never hear a Thai utter a bad word.
