Window shopping, went to Dermcare to buy some stuff, then Grow Nails to have footspa, buy a file organizer from National Bookstore, went to the office (OFFICE??? YES!) to 5S my locker then CCF in Ortigas to attend their 6:30PM Sunday service! I was soooo close to going to Ongpin instead and look for Dong Bei Restaurant, fortunately, I decided I better go to church na lang!

Thank you God for your words. I am sooo busy trying to manage my life that I’ve forgotten to pause and listen to You and Your plans in my life.

Day 2 – Tiring trip to Manila

Yesterday was very tiring. Weather was sooo hot and sticky but I was out traversing the roads of Manila. Started my day early and went straight ahead to my alma mater in Sta.Mesa to get TOR. There I unexpectedly met someone very important! It was really really surprising! Waaaah that’s some 10 years that I’ll never get back. Then I had my long overdue dental checkup in Espana. My eyes feasted on those fascinating old  houses around Espana, they’re soooo beautiful to look at. I hope they get preserved or restored. Lastly, went to Quiapo to buy beads again, leather wallets for men, umbrella (I lost the one I had while in school yesterday), some fruits and brocolli. Tiring but I feel I accomplished a lot of things yesterday so I’m happy. Haven’t felt like that for many many years now.

Today’s agenda is…beading and wire jewelry making! Let’s do this!

5-Day Itinerary To Enjoy Your Singlehood

I am on a 5-day VL starting tomorrow! Yessss!

I’m planning to catch up on sleep, rest and eat well but it looks like I’ll be very busy. Here’s my itinerary for this vacay:

Day 1: Photowalk with myself??! LOLS. Planning to drop by in Quiapo to buy brocolli because it’s cheaper there and some beads. Might also drop by in Ongpin to look for the Dong Bae Restaurant and try their famous dumplings. Tomorrow, I will prove to the world that being alone doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be lonely. Muahaha

Day 2: Go to BPI to inquire about index funds. Liz told me to invest in index funds instead of mutual funds. Based on what I googled, for people like me who do not have time and expertise to study stock market, it is the best way to invest. Returns are not as great as other equity funds BUT, it is the safest. I have very limited knowledge about investing so I’ve been reading investment ebooks these past days because I really really want to save as much money as I can for my future (I need to buy at least 2 haciendas hahahah) I realized if I just put my money in the bank, it’ll only earn a few cents of interest. So if I want to be able achieve my finacial goals, I need to start investing ASAP. Had I done this years ago, I would have been rich and famous by now lols. I’ve joined forums, downloaded free ebooks about financial management, read online resources and now my head is aching trying to learn various investment strategies. The simplest is Binary Option Trading also called all-or-nothing options. They can be very rewarding but very risky. This is how it works:

You purchase a 100$ stocks with a payoff of 1000$. If the stock trading is at 100$ or higher, you get 1000$! If stock trading is below 100$, you get nothing.

Very very risky but exciting, don’t you think? It’s also easier to understand. I wanna try it someday. CedarFinance offer this new trading strategy online. They also provide personal account managers who can work closely with you to ensure you’re getting all the help you needed when trading.

Yes, the day after tomorrow will be spent searching and attarcting money, lots and lots of money in my life!

Day 3: Apply 5S at home! I seriously need to declutter my apartment – bathroom, kitchen, and my living room! I’ve already done de-cluttering my room last week. Took me hours to finish! Do the laundry. Clean my room (I might have a roommate next week!). Throwing away those extra baggages. This day will be all about organizing whatever’s not organize in my life!

Day 4: Sunday! Attend morning service (7AM) in Day by Day Christian Ministry in Folk Arts!  Lord, I will seek you early in the morning and late at night! This day will be for Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

Day 5: Pedicure, spa, whole body massage, derma lols, glutathione haha, and everything else! Day 5 will be all about me, myself and my me-self attitude LOLS.

Tomorrow onwards, I plan to really really enjoy myself, start living a healthy lifestyle, be productive, become more appreciative, practice 5S in my life, get closer to God and move towards my goals!!!

Money Come To Me

Aside from “I’m fine, thank you”, my new motto in life is “Money, come to me!”

Last night, while traversing Masinag Hi-way heading to Cubao, one of my colleagues mentioned out of nowhere that she doesn’t have any desires to be rich. My thoughts on that subject are very opposite. I wanna to be rich! I wanna be able to buy all the things I want. I want to travel the world! And if I have lots of money, I will not think twice to share it and become a blessing to others. I don’t understand why people can say easily that they don’t want to have lots of money, because most people I know think otherwise. And even when I was very young and roleplaying with my cousins, I always wanted to play the role of a “senyorita” hahaha, someone who lives in a huge house with a spiral staircase, who wears nice clothes at home, has a classic telephone and a complete set of victorian sofa!

Well maybe she grew up having nice things in life already. Can’t blame her.

I need money not just because I need it for myself. I need more money so I can be more of help to others. I need more money so I can provide more for my family. I need money so I can plan my next 10-20-30-40-50 years. No one knows what will happen in the future. I could be healthy and fit today, but not tomorrow (Oh Lord, pls. guide me and keep me safe, including my family and friends, all the time). I’m not being all negative, I just wanna make sure I don’t cause burdens to anyone, even when it’s my time to go (Lord, I wanna live longer!). It wont hurt to be prepared, nothing wrong if you think about planning your own memorial service (check here for funeral planning guide) as early as now. It doesn’t mean you’re in a hurry to use it, ok. Just making sure everything is well planned!

Lord, you know what are my desires. Help me to find the means by which to live comfortably, free from financial worries and burdens.

What’s the best pet for a single woman?

I am seriously considering of getting a pet one of these days – either a bird, fish, cat or a dog. What do you think is the best pet for a single woman like me? Well, I really really like cute doggies…but I heard they’re a little expensive. Even it’s clothes, food, pet services,  and dog accessories are expensive. I would need lots and lots of petsmart coupons for that!

To give you a heads up, I don’t travel much but I spend quite a large amount of hours in the office. I don’t like pets sticking their tounges out, and wiping them on my face. During rest days, I like spending my days sleeping or watching movies in my room, alone. I want a low maintenance pet. I rarely cook food for myself, so I hope I don’t have to cook special meals for my pet. I don’t like hearing loud barks bec I get nervous easily with loud noises. I like a pet that doesn’t bite. I like the ones that behaves well. I don’t like my pet messing around the house.

It wil be very hard for me to pet a doggie, you think? I guess my only option is a fish or a bird, but I want my pet to be fluffy and cuddly…maybe it’s best if I’ll just get myself a dog plushie, no?
