Accounting Profile

I’ve searched in the internet for a site or blog that discusses, or at least able to discuss, about accounting and audit, especially as may be applicable to the Philippine settings. And my search failed.

Philippine accounting organizations and institutions like the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) and the Board of Accountancy failed to provide for a specific field in the internet for accountants to converge and share ideas regarding their thoughts about the standards and the accounting and auditing practice in the Philippines. Even Philippine accounting and auditing firms like SGV & Co. (Ernst & Young), Isla Lipana & Co.(formerly Joaquin Cunanan & Co.) (PriceWaterHouse Coopers), Laya Manangyahaya (KPMG), Punongbayan & Araullo (Grant Thornton International), C.L. Manabat & Co. (Deloitte), don’t really have a dedicated page or site to discuss issues related to accounting and auditing issues, especially as regards gray areas of Philippine and international accounting.

Yahoo! Toolbar and Tab Browsing

I’ve just installed the latest Yahoo! toolbar in my Internet Explorer, and it came with it the feature of tab browsing.


The tab browsing is cool, which I liked since I started trying out Mozilla Firefox and Netscape. However, unlike the latter (Firefox and Netscape), the tab browsing in Internet Explorer does not seem to permit opening a link in a new tab (instead of the new window), which facilitates easy navigation because of the uncluttered look.

Taking into consideration the feature of tab browsing (especially in Netscape), I should already have dumped Internet Explorer. However, some websites that I frequently visit (e.g. doesn’t just display correctly in Firefox and Netscape.

Chocolate Math

I just actually received this by email. Yet, I find it pretty cool…and interesting….

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate
(more than once but less than 10).

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold).
