Who would have thought these (ages ago)?
- Merrill Lynch would ever agree to sell itself last sunday to Bank of America for roughly US$ 50 billion to avert a deepening financial crisis; and
- Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy protection and hurtled toward liquidation after failing to find a buyer.
But that’s it,
Nothing is so certain,
Except for taxes, death & changes,
Rise & fall
10 years or so
of relationships dissolved
Pickin’ up the pieces
Ang mundo ay bilog
Time and again, I’d always say,
Life is beautiful no matter what,
Life is about taking chances,
(Almost) nothing is certain,
But one thing is for sure
Happily ever afters (will) do exist.
What’s your risk appetite? Are you a risk-taker or you prefer to play safe?

I gotta admit, I prefer to play safe most of the time, especially in financial situations. I’d rather not gamble.

I play safe most of the time, but I do have the tendency to take risks and gamble. Let’s say 15% of me is willing to take risks in financial decisions. Hmm…I’d still have to see if my my “ever after” will happen =).

I’m a risk taker. I think that’s the reason why we still have our little business 🙂

Like almost everyone here, most of the time, I prefer to play it safe when it comes to finances, especially if I do not have that much to gamble with 🙂
On the rare occasion that I do decide to take the risk, I’m only comfortable waging a portion, as opposed to the whole thing.
Well me, just like Jeanny, i am the risk taker, that’s the reason why most of the materials we have in the business is still with us, and investing on something worth taking risk is really challenging.
We still have the business, and we are still doing great with it. Of course, when there are some things you stumble upon that does not need for you to think twice, stop.
We all make our choices, right?

I take risk if the odds favors me. But I don’t go all the way. For example, a bank offered to invest any money you put in, in return for a certain interest higher than the usual savings or TD percentage. The good thing is CB insures the whole capital which is better than PDIC’s 250T per account. Will you take it? I did.

i’m a contrarian! and yes, a big risk-taker! my favorite philosophy teacher has this to say about life, “walang katiyakan kung walang pagtataya. at walang pagtataya kung maninigurado ka.” i chewed on that for ten years before realizing what it meant. 🙂

I usually weigh things to know if I’ll take the risk or play safe.

scary, no? i pity the workers the most. there was no warning whatsoever and they suddenly find themselves jobless.
I’m wondering why the US gov’t did not extend the same financial aid they did for AIG. Yeah, I emphatized with the employees.
I only gamble when it comes to love.
Whoaaa! Bella, isdatchu? 🙂 If it’s worth the risk, why not? 🙂
Hahaha yeah it’s me Bella. Now let me go jump off a cliff now because I wanna hear my lover talk in my head.

No, Bella. Just go to La Push and have fun with Jacob. He will soon imprint on you. 😉
