Happy Saturday fellas :) Hope you have a great one also Happy Galungan and Kuningan to those who celebrated :)
Since it’s late evening already and Saturday…I am trying to find something fun to share and funnily what comes on my mind is…
The word: Bank
This becomes our word of the day (#WOTD)
Did you know that the word Bank has quite a lot of meanings?
“@ben_andz: mmm money bank and the bank of a river.. Or.. Hmm.. Something like that *peace*” yes you are right :)
For today I am going to focus on these two meanings only :)
1. A bank can be “the land alongside or sloping down to a river or lake”. One of the synonyms included “embankment”
In the famous London city the word bank in this context pretty much existed a lot including Embankment, South Bank, and Bank itself and those places are areas alongside the Thames River
2. A bank is also “a financial establishment that uses money deposited by customers for investment, pays it out when required, makes loans at interest, and exchanges currency”
For a trivia, the Bank area in London now has been established as an office area which most of them are banks. Interesting isn’t it?
So I leave you there with this short #WOTD Bank :) Thank you for your attention and see you tomorrow :D
