Sure, the plot was thin and the lines were cheesy. But admit it: you were bopping your head to those remixed songs during the movie, weren’t you?

Anywayyyyys, Pitch Perfect 2 opened on the same week as another big announcement in the personal finance world: The Singapore Savings Bonds (SSBs).
Loooooots of people were talking about it. It was pretty cool. I’m not gonna repeat what my fellow bloggers have already mentioned, because you can read some excellent articles about the SSBs here, here and here. (As usual, I’m about 2 weeks late when it comes to blogging about these things)

Prepare to get aca-educated.
