Linus Torvald says:

"Artists usually don't make all that much money, and they often keep their artistic hobby despite the money rather than due to it."

Wilfred Peterson says:

"A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints."

Steve Martin says:

"When your hobbies get in the way of your work - that's OK; but when your hobbies get in the way of themselves... well..."

Dale Carnegie says:

"Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto."

T. Chris Lim says:

"If you think you're playing too much, PLAY MORE! Remember, there is no game over."

Warhammer Figures: New Addition to my Collection

Looks like the S-Gundam will take a time-out. My wife and I found something interesting today. This is a Warhammer 40,000 paint set, a basic starter kit! I always wanted to try one of these and today I got lucky. Let's see what's inside the box!

WIP: HG 1/144 S-Gundam

Back to business.
I'm currently working on a small project and I have here my HG 1/144 S-Gundam. This is a straight build with very little modifications plus a custom paint. I used Vallejo Air colors, air-brushed on most parts and detailed using the same material as well. I'm already done adding some decals on the upper body. Tomorrow I might add more decals if all goes well.

BIR: Tax for Online Traders. - Stupidity Lvl: Over 9999

It's been a while since I've posted any updates on my blog. Believe me, I've been busy doing Gunpla (and videogames too). I was busy browsing and gathering information about plastic modeling when I landed on GundamPH's site and the article about "Online Private Sellers – Obliged To Pay Taxes Says BIR".

According to the source:

"Online Traders beware: The taxman cometh"

MANILA – Online traders and entrepreneurs beware, as the Bureau of Internal Revenue this year will start going after those who fail to issue electronic invoices to customers.

Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares told reporters that online businesses – such as sulit.com.ph, e-bay Philippines, alibaba.com, ayosdito.ph and multiply.com - would have to be registered with the BIR.

"These businesses shall be registered to us, and that they should be paying the corresponding taxes. Otherwise, we will run after them," Jacinto-Henares said.

"This plan will push through hopefully within the year. Under the rules, online sellers shall be registered as such to the BIR, and that their electronic invoicing shall likewise be registered either directly to us or a third-party accredited by us," the BIR chief said.

"The electronic invoicing could be availed of through a third party, but such third-party shall be accredited by the BIR. Meaning, private parties could participate and get the necessary accreditation from us," she added.

Well...what can I say about this?

My middle finger salutes you BIR and the rest of your minions!
