For our theme this week which is MONEY, I'd like to feature the
institution in charge of the monetary requirements of our country -
THE BANGKO SENTRAL NG PILIPINAS formerly known as the CENTRAL BANK.

    Not sure if it's just me but your content area is now pushed down below the sidebar at the bottom (I'm viewin' in Firefox)


    I always thought money other than US looked so cool. Our money is now gettin' to look a bit fake tho. LOL

    Thanks for letting me know TNChick and Expat Traveler. I must have deleted something while I was posting a new blinker in my template. Now it's back but I have to reconstruct again my sidebar. Grrr...

    I'm not playing today just stopping in to say hi! I love how different currenties are from other countries. Much more color than our boring green! Great pictures!

    What ever problem you had seems to be fixed. Your page looks fine to me! Have a great day!

    Ooh, I like the purples.

    I know, I tend to focus on trival stuff. lol

    Enjoy the weekend

    Foreign money always looks odd; naturally, English money must do as well.

     
  • At 8/05/2006 9:05 PM, Blogger Carol

    I love the look of foreign money - it's always much more interesting that our US currency...yours is most interesting...

    Thanks for sharing.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Carol

    PS. Mine is up now too.

    Like Canada, your money looks pretty!!

    I am sharing some blog love over the weekend and I have to tell you, I so adore coming here and reading about all your adventures, looking at the photos and walking down memory lane with you. I had a Great Aunt that was a nurse during her lifetime who I loved so dearly, I always tell my husband that there is something about you that reminds me of her. Many warm and fuzzies and have a wonderful weekend.

    Very cool money you have. Reminds me of the money in Germany.

    Pesos same as Mexico! I've got me some Mexican coins up for mine but you have to scroll to the bottom of me wedding pictures to see 'em.

    Happy Weekend!

    Lots of foreign notes and coins this week. That just makes it more interesting. We also realise just how many different nationalities are participating in this photo hunt :)

    And again I am wondering what someone from outside the US thinks of our greenbacks.
    I like the purple too :)
    Mine is up.

    Great choice for todays theme. Much better looking currency than ours is.

     
  • At 8/06/2006 12:11 PM, Blogger Froggie Mama

    I have to agree... this is much better (and prettier) than the plain ol' US currency! :)

    hope you're having a wonderful weekend! :)

    Nothing like a Bank to express the image of money! (lol)
