Always remember that Mama loves you very much. And no matter how tall you become, Mama may already be shorter than you next month, you will always be my baby. But don’t you worry, I will try (really hard, promise!) not to call you baby in front of your friends.
At least she won’t be needing steel levelers when changing tires, her fiancé can take care of problems like that!
I got an email this morning that I’m now hired as an SMM. I created my profile just last week and after waiting for just a few days I now have my first Odesk client. I’m only required to work seven hours each week so I have more free time for more clients.
Happy, happy day!
Are you a smart shopper? I'd like to think that I am a very smart shopper. Just the other day I was in the grocery store and found out that a certain brand of laundry powder is charging more when you buy a bigger pack. Buying 3 sachet packs with the same quantity is Php10 cheaper. You find it funny that I want to save Php10? Laugh again if I tell you I get to save more than a thousand a year just with that laundry powder savings. And with that amount I can already pay 1 month of phone or water bill.
I'm not surprised actually because a lot of other brands also practice the same "pricing scheme". I salute those companies who are consumer friendly and price their big packs lower compared with buying small sachets with the same quantity. I feel sorry for those who buy in bulk like small store owners (sari-sari store). But much sorrier for those who buy in sari-sari stores all the time. They carry the burden of paying more than what they ought to pay. Although most don't know it and maybe just doesn't care how much more they pay when buying in a sari-sari store.
So here's my piece of advice, value your hard-earned money by being a smart consumer:
- compare the brands that you buy, but do take note that cheap doesn't always mean better
- compare prices of buying in big and small packs, never assume that buying in bulk is always cheaper than buying in small packs, not all brands are consumer-friendly
- refrain from buying in small stores if it can be avoided
- make a grocery shopping list to avoid buying in small stores
Next time I hear him say, “I’m bored!”, I’ll ask him to just play the yoyo.
My son can now ride a bike and he learned on his own. I found this Youtube video on how parents should teach kids how to ride a bike in a fun, stress-free and untiring-for-the-parents way. Of course the parents or an adult still needs to explain how the kids should do it.
My son learned how to balance in an hour, how to do a U-turn in an hour. I am not kidding!
Here's the video:

Overheard my son and niece's conversation:
Grandma: I don’t want to see paint on my living room floor kids!
F: Why does Lola (grandma) ruin all the fun?!
R: Really? How?
F: We're not even using paint!
R: Oh, just ignore her. That's what I always do
