The Everyday's Ending

Sounds conflict.

Yeah, I can't find a comfortable title of this post because it was hurting me for a week. After I gave birth on March 30, 2013 with baby JB I've been decided to move out. Ever since I was really trying hard to have my kids with me. Then I thought this will be the great way.

April 14, we finally found a small cozy apartment and my kids was really happy. Everyone had their own choir. The apartment was not really expensive it's P3,500 with light and water. At first, we tried to fill in the house. Everything was good at first, the kids sent to near walking distance school. Yet, after the expenses of milk, and some groceries I didn't anticipate the huge debt that adding all the time. I was trying to rebuild everything into "proper" places. The kids was bored staying in the house and so.

We tried to find a lesser monthly cost apartment but it was hard. Until the days was over. I still wanted to fix but my partner told me to move back to mum because it's the best way.

So this is the end of my everyday life. I mean, the usual Monday to Saturday movement I've used to. Home-office and office-home. Goodbye Panapaan, Bacoor. It really hurt to gave up on you, the memories I've built with my kids together and my partner. Goodbye nice landlord. Goodbye, silent neighbors. Goodbye, P5 coffee coin insert machine (in front of our house). Tears! Tears! I am gonna Missed You.... :(

So this is final..

 Welcome, Panapaan IV!!! (Our way home.)

Way to main highway.

I will missed you UPhigh ... if I am lazy for the grocery I usually went here.

The safe line when I walk across the highway. Ohhhhh....bye too.

The slightly busy road.

 My landmark (Ministop) every time the driver would ask me "Where is this?" while holding my fare money then I will told him " Ehem, Panapaan Ministop please". I always have P25 on my pocket so that the jeepney driver won't bother to asked me same above question. And I will keep the P5 off my wallet because it actually charged me P30 from my place teeheehee... (LOL!) Kidding.

An aircon bus going to Lawton approaching. P28 charge fare from Panapaan.

But I won't take the bus perhaps jeepney coz it stops in Binondo church. Ok, jeepney's coming wait!

Inside the jeepney. Everyone seems so sleepy including me.

It takes more than half an hour from Panapaan, Cavite to Binondo, Manila (45 mins) and that's without traffic. It depends on traffic lah!

San Fernando bridge of Binondo. Yes, I am walking from Binondo church to my office. It's part of exercise.

 I used to look-up every building and often thought, "Why Chinese people could lived in those high towered building while poor Filipino's sleep everywhere on those streets of Manila?".

Chinese enjoys living here. Wow, right?

While some Filipino's tried to fill themselves to lived in a house like these. :(

Ok let's see in focus image.
I think it's a choice. Not an option.

What's your answer?

 Some squatters.

Granny, what's your breakfast for today? :)

Some small time business.

Me capturing my feet walking fast.

Finally got here to our office.

Could you tell what is this? Me fronting the elevator. Lol.

Going to 4th/F

The main door.

The reception area.

Where's my time card?

Early bird lah!

Still lights off.

The Big Boss office.

And my table.

Well, this is the daily cycle of my life from Monday to Saturday. But now it won't be anymore. I am really missing our old apartment but we can't live there anymore. I don't have enough resources for it. Or else I will be sleeping in those streets of Manila.

It's a choice. Not an option.

So I choose to moved out my family and be back to General, Trias with mum to lessen the expenses. And I will live free with the company. Yes, it's FREE.

 I need to be practical.


The 'Lil Comic Story

My Three (3) Months Journey

I hope you guys enjoy the 'lil moments of Jewel Blake during her simple 3 months celebration. I just cooked one kilo of Pancit Bihon on July 14, Sunday afternoon. By the way, it's kinda two weeks late already but never mind. Then brought her the 'lil cashew-flavored cake. And lots of "Pandesal" for the Pancit partner.

Let's start.

Before it ends..more of photos.

Thanks for the time spent. God bless you.


How to Become a Millionaire Before 30

So your ambition in life is to be a millionaire before you turn 30! Fabulous. 

It’s a great ambition. It is not difficult, but it is not that easy either, as you might very well know. There are many routes that people take to become a millionaire – betting on horses, gambling, investing in real estate, winning a lottery, becoming an entrepreneur. Some rely on luck while some work hard for it. Luck is fleeting, rare, but hard work pays, hundred percent. So, how do you become a millionaire? Here’s how:

Earnings from your job.

Obviously you need a steady stream of income to build your million. The more money you earn, the quicker the journey to your milestone will be. But that doesn’t mean you can get there on a Government salary. It has to be substantial.

Know your limits.

You have to know your limits. You obviously cannot spend more than you make. That’s a financial suicide. If you can’t afford to buy that Sedan, don’t. Buy a hatch. If you can’t afford to eat at fancy restaurants, start cooking at home. If traveling by your vehicle is expensive, switch to public transport. You don’t have to turn into a pauper, just practice smart living. Quit getting magazines you don’t read; get rid of the internet connection if you don’t use it that often. You use it at work anyway. Switch to prepaid connection if you’re on a postpaid mobile plan. Get rid of that credit card so you never get tempted into buying stuff on an impulse. When you shop, shop in bulk. Quit buying the newest gadgets. Basically, live a lifestyle that you can afford.

Save Money.

Just making money won’t suffice. You need a savings plan. Don’t leave it for too late. The longer you save the more money you will end up with. Don’t think of saving after you’ve paid all your bills. Set aside a percentage of your salary every week or every month and put that money into a separate account and refrain from getting an ATM card. That way you will think twice before withdrawing money.

Make good investments.

Make sound investment decisions. Listen to news, read the papers, talk to knowledgeable people and seek their advice on investments. You can even seek services of an investment agency. Invest in a diversified portfolio and be consistent. Maybe a systematic investment plan or SIP. You can even look at mutual funds, stocks, shares etc. Make sure you have the ability to take risks because you will win some and you will lose some. Buy land or gold or flats if you have that kind of cash. It will appreciate over a period of time and you can sell it off later to make a good profit.

Start your own business.

You can turn into an entrepreneur even, investing your money into growing your business. If the idea is good and you’re a good manager, you will be able to make quite a bit of money. Always keep looking at avenues to increase your income.

Your hobby could make you rich.

(I love blogging so I guess it could help me earn money. Lol!)

If you have a hobby like stamp collection or comic books collection (in mint condition), antiques or original paintings, or any collector’s items. They could fetch a great amount if you decide to auction them.

Get married.

By marrying a working woman, you not only double your salary but also your savings.
Becoming a millionaire is not easy, or else all of us would be one. It is tough. It needs planning and perseverance. If you’re willing to put in hard work over a period of time, you will be rewarded.
