Was sick..

was sick this weekend. went home last friday with a runny nose and soar throat. i was sneezing while in line at the terminal and teary eyed coz of my clogged nose and depression coz no one's picking me up to bring me home... i'm really sensitive when i get sick.. i seek attention but usually keep it to myself.. now, i'm a bit better. just a little cough and colds. loads of decolgen, vitamin c, sleep, water, and a nice purple get-well balloon did the trick! and of course, someone who insisted i stay away from sweets...

Family Dinner

My family and i had dinner a week ago. This wasnt planned... we were on our way to alfonso, cavite so we stopped by mcdo tagaytay for a quick bite..
This is nice.. something we used to do when i was a kid. it's been a while since the 4 of us ate out together... just the 4 of us and no one else.. NICE! actually, even at home, it's rare that all of us are complete during meals.. sitting down with the family is just one of the nicest things on earth..
When was the last time you had dinner with your family?

si aling dessagirl, ang super tindera

Last weekend, ako ay nagbawas ng damit at nagbenta. (pahinga muna tayo sa pagdonate ng old clothes kasi i need serious moolah)..

here's a good way to earn extra cash: GARAGE SALE

1. go to your closet and realize this: ay, napaka dami ko nang damit at kuning-kuning sa mundo.. must get rid of these to make room for the new stuff (hehe..)

2. get your own price tag (make sure the color is different from the ones who will be selling as well during the garage sale so you dont mix up your stuff. then, "price tag" ANYTHING you dont need no more! i got to sell figurines from weddings or bdays

3. make a list with codes to make sure all items are accounted for. place the codes in the price tags as well. for example: skirts are coded as sk-01, sk-02.. para organized. matrabaho pero sulit. i used to encode this in excel. pero para tipid sa kuryente, e linista ko at nag calculator nalang ang lola mo...

4. when you are sure that you have everything in place: plastic bags, tables, a clean garage.. make an announcement. flyers and posters in busy streets, bgy halls, etc. really help! btw, when you choose a date, make sure it's during payday. para may pera ang mga customers mo... mala sm three day sale itich. hehe

5. on the day itself, wake up early and start selling! people usually come in as early as 8am! funfunfun!

Take note of the following though:

-you can get bored when there are no customers (thanks my pamankins and cousins.. i wasnt that bored.. hehe)

-when they arrive in groups in tricycles, matataranta ka pag sabay sabay bumili tapos wala ka pang panukli..

-yung mga tatawad ng sobra.. aba, ang mura na nga ng mga paninda ko, kulang nalang hingin nila

-yung mga matanong: "para saan to? umaandar pa to? sayo to? anung baiwang nito?" ayan.. mejo na-stress ako sa mga tanung na yan

By sunday, i got a good amount.. not as large as last time (naka 4k kaya ako nun) pero ok na rin.. happy selling!!!

ito na...

ito na ang simula ng panahon ng pangungulubi (tama ba?) deshembre nanaman at marami na ang nag hahanap ng pinaka maganada at pinaka murang regalo... iris (a.k.a. kagandahan) and i went to divisoria last week.. my gulay.. have not been here for a couple of years so sobrang na miss ko itich!!!! we went to ylaya, tabora, divi mall, and first time ko ever dito: 168!!! trulyly!!!

i like! it's not that warm, they have REAL cheap stuff and nice stuff! naubos ang kakaunting dala naming yaman. papano, kaka bili ko ng anik-anik at kuning-kuning, hala.. naglaho na.. but i got funky and unique gift items which of course, am not about to broadcast! hellur? for meself, i got some nice dessagirl things: adidas goofy edition shirt, hello kitty pouches for my phone and digicam, purple ariel pen and stickers, at kung anuanupa!

the food was real cheap too! 60 pesos for chapsuey, bbq, plain rice, soup and gulaman. o-ha?! yun nga lang, kulang sa lasa. pero ayus na! check out their nice food court! you wouldnt think you were in divi:

so there.. my first christmas shopping adventure.. yeah! happy shopping everyone!

These are photos i took Friday morning on my way to work. Billboard #1 is beside padi's point las piñas just outside our village along alabang zapote road. yikes... the lightpost looks scary too.
This one fell over an overpass. i think this hit a revo.. couldnt see well. Billboard #2 is in the intersection of coastal and mia road. it was still cloudy in the morning. by noon, the sun was really out.
Billboard#3 fell on top of the edsa magallanes flyover, directly on top of a bus.. only 2 lanes were open that time so traffic was a bit slow that time... i also saw guys in fatigue cleaning the streets. there were plants everywhere. the little trees we had in makati are mostly down. =( sayang. wala nang shade.. it's gona be extra hot again. thank God we had electricity Saturday morning. some cities in cavite and parañaque i thinks still do not have power! yikes!

It's been a while since i experienced such wind and rain.. the last time i think was back in 1998 when i was still in college. our car was half under water but then the Lord is gracious and helped us make it to a gasoline station and pedicab our way home.. this time though, i just stayed at home. reminds me of who we turn when there are "storms" in life. PRAY!PRAY!PRAY!
