..good think I'm not...

I am not a pro cigar person but most of my relatives does smoke cigar. I grew up with a family who mostly of the guy relative smoke, but haven't seen any from the women though. Probably its one reason why I haven't learn to smoke too.
I think its really hard to be a smoker and not to mention the health thing but the finances because cigarettes are not cheap. When I was young I used to buy cigar for "lolo" my beloved grandpa. Cigars then were cheap, though today there are cigars for less but still... things before are still cheaper than today.

I am still thankful that I never learn to do such things because if I did... I don't know what life would be now!

Marc Jacobs Handbags for me

I have lots of friends who really likes bags in general no matter what's the name as long as its nice and new. Seeing them happy with their bags make me wish that I'm like them because I'm not and I even went out without bringing one.
I have an officemate though that she has loads of bags and she brought different one to the office almost every other day or depends on what she wore that day.
What really shocked me in a way was hearing from friends that some bags cost millions and some women fought for it. whew! never thought it happens that way sometimes. A bag is only a bag for me, I don't see any more than that.
But if I'm gonna have a Marc Jacobs handbags for Christmas... would be an amazing thing too. I couldn't ask for more Christmas gift than this.
I'm still waiting for a gift like this though! :)

The moment has finally come!

In January 2, hubby and I will start to move some stuff from this present house to our next destination. Then on the 9th... we are going to move all our belongings because it's the only day that we can use our teams van. So... even though our end day is in the 15th... hubby and I will be forced to move early for that reason.
Hubby asked me if I am excited and I told him not :( because I like living here in Makati plus it's good to be near with friends too. But we need to do this sacrifice to save money for our dream house!

We really don't know what lies ahead of us, but it's good to know that the Lord is good and He direct paths and prosper plans.
Thank you dear Lord!

Opportunities...

Two weeks ago when we heard that we won't get any bonus and hubby will loss his allowance too and the possibility that we might loss our office on January . We accepted it positively and we even encourages our teammates that maybe the Lord has something bigger blessing for us. It's always easier said than done... because when hubby and I talked about it during our us time before bed... fear is present in us and we on thinking on how to find other income means. We were discourage for days, there were nights that hubby barely sleeps at all... Yet the only hope and strength we had is the promise of God in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a good future".

Two days ago... our team leader invited us to a breakfast fellowship at Starbucks-Harbour center. We had great time talking with him. Then when we are about to go... he suddenly said that he has a suggestion/job offer for me. He told me that If I would like to take the partnership director position in our team... this goes with an allowance when our team financial support will get stable. There was another job offer again to handle the JKKCC Church financial stuff-to act as the accounting officer, and this promise of a minimum salary too.

Hubby and I were both excited to face the challenges of the coming new year. It seems that we have loads of financial opportunity. It is indeed true that when God closes doors... He will open all the windows!

Bangkok

We went to this famous place in Bangkok Thailand on November one last month. We never expected that we'll be there during that time and actually we don't even realized it's Halloween. When we saw the street parties and the bulk of people walking with costumes then we found out it Halloween party.
They say that people went to visit that particular place in Bangkok for a sole purpose and that is to party. It's crazy because you could see people in different nationalities, young and old alike... holding a beer on one hand and a cigarette on the other. I wonder if these people in the masculine side uses male enhancement product to satisfy themselves.
How I wish these people would finally view life in a better and safer perspective and enjoy life to the fullest.. in a not this way thing y. Looking at those folks made me sad because I know that they worked hard to get money and then they'll just it it all away or throw it on things that don't brig them long term satisfaction but instead worst disease.

Looking for a mattress on sale.

In two years time hubby and I are expecting to make our last house move because we are hoping we'll be able to move to our new permanent house, and even now... though its still early for furniture shopping we are already looking for stuff that we are going to put in our new house.
Its funny how hubby and I would go around from one furniture store to another in search of sofa, tables and chairs for our new home. We are actually watching out for a mattress sale because we are thinking of buying one to put in the guest room so that when friends or family stays for the night we don't have to worry for them because we have a place for them to stay.
Hubby and I are excited for new beginnings again, though we know that change is scary, but we put our hope and trust in the Lord and we know that He has something best in store for us :).

new computer for hubby...

Hubby is dreaming of a new desktop computer. He said that when things are good with us financially, we will buy a new computer for him. It's hard when he needs to use our laptop while I use it because we often argue on who is the rightful person to use it.
How I wish we have a lot of money to buy 1U lcd so that hubby and I won't fight over our laptop anymore. That anytime he wants to use it.. he can because I have mine.
But anyways... we are not pushing ourselves to the limit just to have another computer because we really can wait and besides we only fought when we are both tired and stressed.

Blow your snow!..

I would never know about snowblower until we went to Canada. It was funny because hubby and I was hoping that we'll able to... not only see but to touch snow as well. When we told our friends about our desire... they explain to us how half of the people love snow and half of them hate it. They love it because they were thinking of the fun the snow could bring, others doesn't like it because of the hassle it brings to them too.
Someone told us that it cost them so much when there's snow because they need to pay people to help them clear out snow in their yards and they need to spend more on electricity because they need to use ariens snowblower to melts those snow away.
I still wonder though what it feels to be living in a snowy place and having a white Christmas.
