Rewarding myself

It's Australia's Boxing Day - most of the shops are on their craziest sale ever from 50% to 70% off on most if not all of their selling goods. An aussie co-worker explained that the name came from boxes, meaning when they buy stuff, boxes are needed to pack many good-cheap finds.
But, I guess, it's because you need to box with other consumers hauling over the sale stuffs. hahaha! Boxing Day is boxing day--- super dooper sale!
Oh well, shopping for women, is our favorite sport, past time, stress reliever, mood therapy, etc. (bigger hahaha!) so, obviously, I did not let this occasion passed by. (naman!)
Shoes, shoess, shoesss. Bags, bagss, bagss. Dress, dressess, dressesss. Accessoriesssss. Jewelriessss... Gosh!!!
I got some shoes, shoes, and shoes... hahaha! (I already bought, tops, skirts, dresses a week before but not shoes).
But on top of my list is so far, my most expensive Christmas gift for myself... (and yeah, they're Not on sale!). Heck! I still rewarded myself...

Quiet Christmas

It's less than 3hrs past Christmas, and another countdown begins for the next one...
Starting cold Christmas morning with Skype, talking to my parents and family, is our first time. And true, I've never dreamed of having this kind of conversation with them. Never in my lifetime. But, here I am, destiny took its own course, miles away from home, tech
nology kept me near them and them with me.
And just right before the tears start to shed, I'd said my I love you's and goodbyes. I have to. It's Christmas, it should be merry, happy and joyful celebration and not teary, sad and lonely. But, will not deny, it got me more quiet... nothing to say, silence enveloped me...
The best thing to do to cap that silence is to sleep... Yep! I slept the rest of the day and watched tv 'til sleepiness creeps in again... (and yep, after writing here).
Thank you to all who
send their Christmas txt messages and greetings in FB, and phone calls.
With my gratitude to God over this years' blessings and for the years to come. Wishing all of us a more blessed year ahead...
Oh well, I should be getting used to this... Quiet Christmas with Skype..

Merry Christmas! =)

Time Will Tell

Once upon a time there was an island where all the feelings lived; Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all the others…… including Love. One day it was announced to all of the feelings that the island was going to sink to the bottom of the ocean. So all the feelings prepared their boats to leave. Love was the only one that stayed. She wanted to preserve the island until the last possible moment.When the island was almost totally under, Love decided it was time to leave. She began looking for someone to ask for help. Just then Richness was passing by in a grand boat. Love asked, “Richness, Can I come with you on your boat?” Richness answered, “I’m sorry, but here is a lot of silver and gold on my boat and there would be no room for you.” Then love decided to ask Vanity for help who was passing in a beautiful vessel. Love cried out, “Vanity, help me please.” I can’t help you”, Vanity said, “You are all wet and will damage my beautiful boat.”
Next, Love saw Sadness passing by. Love said, “Sadness, please let me go with you.” Sadness answered, “Love, I’m sorry, but, I just need to be alone now.” Then, Love saw Happiness. Love cried out, “Happiness, please take me with you.” But happiness was so overjoyed that he didn’t hear Love calling to him. Love began to cry.
Then, she heard a voice say, “Come Love, I will take you with me.” It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that she forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived on land the elder went on his way. Love realized how much she owed the elder.
Love then found Knowledge and asked, “Who was it that helped me?” “It was Time”, Knowledge answered. “But why did Time help me when no one else would?”, Love asked. Knowledge smiled and with deep wisdom and sincerity, answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is.”
