I just wanted to share this particular story of my eldest son while having a conversation with his dad.
Izzo: “Daddy, can we go to Sta. Lucia Dept. Store tomorrow?”
Daddy: “Why do you want to go there?”
Izzo: “May titignan lang ako.” (I just want to see something.”
Daddy: “What do you want to see there?”
Izzo: “I want to buy a new toy.”
Daddy: “We don’t have money yet, we have to wait till Daddy receives his salary.”
Izzo: “Daddy, you have money … (Izzo went to the other side of the room to get a 5 peso gold coin and showed it to his dad)
Daddy: “That’s not enough for you to buy even a small toy.”
Izzo went to me and asked for all my 5 peso gold coins.
Hubby and I really had a good laugh that night. My son really doesn’t have any idea yet of the real value of money. He just knows that we need them to buy stuff (esp. his toys). And that he cannot differentiate a big amount from a smaller amount. The association of the gold thing maybe he got from watching cartoons on tv. That when they were able to dig gold bars they say out loud that “We’re rich … we’re rich!”
O well, I wish we could dig up enough gold bars for us to be able to buy all the stuff that we need (and of course those that we want too).
I just enjoy looking at these pictures …
Izzo’s new version of his funny face
Renzo: “Yabang ko ‘noh?”
Have you ever had an afternoon where you’re daydreaming of going shopping? I just did … hehehe … The following are the things I shopped during my “Dream Shopping”
1. D & G Light Blue Perfume – I love this perfume ‘coz it has a very fresh scent (citrus like), I dont’ like the flowery scents kasi e.
2. Shoes Galore – lots! for office and for casual wear … of course I have to buy it in different colors to match my every wardrobe!
3. Bags – of course to match the shoes I bought
4. Clothes, clothes and lots of them! – from office attires to casual ones.
5. A Spa Treat for me and hubby! – We need this badly to release us from the stress around us (most especially office stress … ssshhhh quiet lang ha!)
Dreaming is free so I got all these for nothing … hehehe!
Hubby and I are thinking of getting a second hand pick-up for our new Foodcart biz. We’ve just been borrowing our Uncle’s pick-up every time we have an event. Well, we’re thankful for him ‘coz he’s so very kind in lending his pick-up to us for the two events we had.
One of my officemate is selling his 1996 Mitsubishi pick-up. We’d like to grab this opportunity since we know the vehicle is in good running condition and well maintained. Since we don’t have that much resources, I called up my friend who’s working in a bank and asked if we can loan a certain amount from their bank for a second hand vehicle. So, she inquired and gave us feedback that they only process loans for 2nd vehicles not more than 5 years. Owwww, maybe this is not yet the perfect time to buy one.
Well, we just hope that people would start to give us opportunities for our foodcart biz and who know we might end up getting a brand new vehicle instead of a second hand one.
