Random Things About Me

I do not like stuffed toys, for me they are dust collector item. 

I really appreciate if someone gives me flowers but I rather receive letters, cards, chocolates or anything that I could keep, use or eat. Flowers are so expensive and for me, it is just a waste of money, it won’t stay long.

I am a meat lover so diet is not for me. 

I have no vices. I am so thankful that my husband has no vices too. 

I am not into sports. P.E. is my least favorite subject. I don’t have any sports, I am afraid of ball games.

I hate waiting. It really ruins my day when people make me wait. Time is gold.

I am not an O.C. person but I want everything to be organized. 

I always have my “to do or to buy” list whenever I go out. I always have a grocery list and weekly menu list.

I don’t know how to ride a bike. 

I don’t know how to drive a car. I’m scared to learn. 

I am not a good swimmer but I love going to the beach and swimming pool. 

I’m practicing “minimalist living” less stuff and less furniture. I weed out our closet, twice or thrice a year. I eliminate all clothes that do not fit me and clothes that I rarely use; I do the same thing with my husband and son’s closet. We only have limited space so if ever I will buy something, I need to let go of some stuff. I give them to relatives or someone who needs them. Some of my son’s pre-loved stuff, I sell it online. 

I’m practicing “green living”, I really practice reduce, reuse and recycle. Every month we go to junkshop to sell our junk (papers, boxes, plastic, bottles, tin cans and anything that we can sell). All earnings go to my son’s savings account. 

I’m not a fan of throwing big birthday parties. I do not enjoy the preparation so when my son celebrated his 1st birthday, I just went to McDonalds to avail their birthday package. Less stress and less hassle for me. 

I love to cook but during holidays and birthdays, I do not want to cook. I rather eat out or take out some food for our Noche Buena or birthday celebration. Less stress and less pressure for me. One more thing, I want to eat different food no, my own dish. (“sawa na ko sa luto ko”).

I’m not into fashion, jewelry, gadgets or any material stuff; I don’t care about the brand, what’s in and what’s not as long as I am comfortable with my clothes. I don’t mind if I do not have the latest gadgets and if I don’t own a branded bag because I love to spend my money on experiences.

Blessed are those people who can afford to travel and buy branded stuff. I love to travel, how I wish I can do it often. I do believe that you don’t have to be rich to travel; you can see and experience the world in a budget. 

Traveling makes me happy. Nakakatawa lang because when I was still working I have the money but I have no time to travel because of my limited vacation leave but now that I am not working, I have all the time in the world but I have a very limited budget. Hahaha!

I also believe that you have to enjoy your hard earned money, di na lang puro save because when you die, you can’t bring your money. (sayang!). So enjoy life! Believe me, there are a lot of things that you can learn and understand when you travel. (parang dami ko ng napuntahan noh?) hehehe!

I always bring a camera wherever I go (travel) because I love pictures, pictures, and pictures.
