Former Colleague and Friend is Sick

Indeed,  health is wealth and it can't be bought with money. I was shock when one good friend and former  bank colleague told me in facebook that another good friend and also a bank colleague is suffering of sickness at the moment. It is not just an ordinary sickness but it is this very dangerous one called cancer.

She told me to write a message to our friend and also asked me to pray for her. I really felt so sad after hearing that news.  Last weekend, I had the chance to exchange  private messages with her thru facebook. She said that she is doing better and she is currently undergoing a chemoteraphy. 


Not Feeling Well

Happy New Year 2015!  It seems that the admin of this blog is so busy most of the time. Yes, indeed she is!  I am happy to be finally backed  here! How was the start of 2015 treating you guys? I hope everything is just doing good out there.

Overall, I am doing fine. There are just days when I just get so tired from work. Yesterday, I was not feeling good when I was at work. After around 4 hours of  working, I felt so dizzy that I sat down for some minutes hoping that I will be fine....10 minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes had passed but still, I am still not feeling good.  My co-workers  told me that if I am not really  feel better, then I can go home.


Friday Etcetera

Thanks God its Friday! I wonder why a lot of people always say this. I guess, it is because weekend is almost coming. For those who are working from Monday to Friday, this is their last day of work and they can finally relax or do some things during the weekend. In contrary, I am always thankful everyday. There are just a lot of things to be thankful of.

I am quite very busy today organizing things. Since the past two weeks, I already started to organize some things in the house. I also started sorting the clothes in my closets. I felt sad when I found a lot of small size clothing in my closets. I am also sad because I need more plus size dresses after gaining more weight again. I am afraid to explode soon and that is one of the reasons why I am trying to control my eating habits now. I want to lose at least 15 kilos and I am serious about this. For now, I just need to organize first some things in the house before I go for another trip again.

See you later folks. Time to prepare for dinner.


For My Sis

Its been quite a long time since I did not have a chat or a call with my sister back home. I also did not call to greet her on her birthday two weeks ago. Thanks to facebook that I was able to extend my greetings and wishes to her. Belated happy birthday dear sister. Don't worry I already bought the silver jewelry that you asked from me last year. This will be my birthday present for you. Sad to say, I don't want to mail it. I am afraid that it will be lost in transit. I will rather hand it to you personally once we go home for another vacation to the Philippines next year.

Lastly, I always wish you all the best of everything in all your plans, your future career, in your studies and most of all I wish you good health always, love, peace, contentment and happiness. Take care always and I love you!


Where to Find Affordable Gift Ideas

With all the economic and financial crisis that the world is facing right now, most and maybe all people want to save every single penny in their pocket. We can't deny that especially that most goods and commodities are astronomically rising up at the moment. But I agree that there are always cheap shopping out there.

Sometimes, we have the difficulty of finding a perfect gift for someone who might be celebrating a special occasion. Whether it is your wife, husband, a friend, colleague or a relative who will be celebrating his/her birthday, wedding or anniversary, there are always affordable presents that will fit your budget. This is the reason why I am giving you some ideas on where and how to shop for affordable gift ideas.

Special offers

I believed most of us are shopping online nowadays. There are always special promotions online where you can find a lot of affordable goods to choose from. Subscribing a newsletter from an online shop is a good way to inform you of special offers. In this way, you are always updated of any products that are on sale. This might be a perfect as a gift for someone who celebrates a special occasion.

Seasonal Sales

I am always watching for winter and summer sales. These seasonal sales are always an advantage for those who want to save money. You can always get prices that are really very cheap. I did some winter sale shopping with my friends last January. It is not anymore a surprise for me to avail of cheap prices during this sale season. I am happy and satisfied for all the winter clothes and accessories that I bought. Imagine saving for up to 75% off, that is a lot of money. I am even saving the winter accessories as presents for the next Christmas time. This is one way of getting affordable gift ideas.

Visit a Supermarket or Mall

Two weeks ago, me and my friends went to the supermarket in the next city. Everyone was so happy with what they shopped because mostly are on sale. I did shopped for health and beauty products for my friends and family back home. I bought some bath soap, lotions, herbal bath, beauty soap and some fragrances which are mostly on sale.  Sometimes there are sales when you go to a store  like manager's special, clearance sale, etcetera.

Thrift Shops

Sometimes you are lucky to find unopened and unused goods in thrift shops for cheaper prices. I remember a friend who mentioned last time about exchanging of gifts for this year's Christmas. She said that we will buy the gifts at a thrift store and it cost at least 10.00 Euros. That is quite a good idea. For sure with this amount, you can already buy a lot of interesting stuffs. Sometimes you are lucky to find antique porcelain or ceramics which I also love.

Please be reminded to shop early for your presents to avoid stress and you sometimes save money for that. The earlier the better! It is always a nice feeling when you share or give something.
