On a tight budget

When you are in a situation when you don’t know where to go to or ask assistance. It is better to tighten you budget as early as you can. That’s what I’ve learn during those months that I decided to be alone and be independent (that’s what I always told myself). Hard time always comes and goes. There are times when I can buy things for myself like shoes and dress because I have extra in my wallet but there are always time that I don’t know where to borrow for the house repairs, food and billings payment.
Maybe some of you experience that situation and it is really frustrating right?

This would be the time that I act and be on the tightest budget that I could because I hate receiving disconnection notice. Every time I received a disconnection notice, I feel restless. So, what I do is I eat less outside like fast-food or buy food outside. Buy items and foods that always eat, buy concentrated juice instead of soft drinks because most of the time water is not enough hehehe. Turn off all the lights when I don’t use it. And so far it works for me, my electric bill is not that distressful anymore so as my water bill. And maybe one day, things will work out as before.


Mommy Moments

They say that being a mother is not an easy task but it is the most fulfilling job all mother would love to have. Even if it’s hard, a mother would endure everything from pregnancy, giving birth and raising a child and until forever just for the sake of their children. But what I like the most is during pregnancy, when all they ask is being given to them. From food, self pampering from the father or family members and shopping for baby clothes and don’t ever forget the maternity clothes.

Every pregnant woman wants to be sexy ad desirable during their pregnancy and won’t look haggard when going out with their husbands or boyfriends. If you ask me, maybe the first thing I would do when I get pregnant and hopefully soon is to search online or look for maternity shops that sells sexy or cute maternity dresses, so I would know where to buy maternity clothes that I like and my husband like as well. You have to enjoy and feel being pregnant because it’s not all the time a blessing like that happens.

I will never know what it feels like to be pregnant or to be a mother but I love to experience it, and maybe someday, God will give me a wonderful and beautiful family that I can treasure. But before that, I would surely love to enjoy being pregnant and all. I would ask and buy the food that I like to eat, shop for my baby stuff and of course buy my own maternity dress.


Packing the Parents Stuff

As I was wondering what to do the whole day every day, and I notice that most of my parents stuff especially my mother’s was still in their old storage. Then, I remember the day when my parents move to gensan, they only bring that stuff that is easy to carry and important at that moment because traveling from Cagayan to General Santos takes 12 hours and renting a big van to store all their stuff is too expensive plus we don’t know where to rent bigger vehicle that time. So I was planning to buy big empty boxes in our neighbors sari2x store so I can pack all my parents stuff especially my mother’s kitchen stuff like plates, mugs, glass, Tupperware’s and utensils. I think she only brings few kitchen stuff that day and since my parents will be living in that house for a very long time.

Packing and sending it would be the best thing to do. All those kitchen stuff will be helpful for my mother during special occasions like birthdays, and holidays. I don’t use that entire kitchen utensil anyways so why not pack it ahead of time and then when one of them will visit, we don’t need to bother our self packing it because I already prepare it already for them.


Renting or Selling?

Just a few days ago my parents suggested about selling the old house, the one that I was staying at the moment. My other siblings want to sell this house too since my parents move to the house my bother bought. At first, I was not very happy about it because I don’t want to live in my parent’s new house but I suppose maintaining a house is not that easy. Repairing the broken part of the house needs a lot of money and that I don’t have. But were thinking of having it rented thought but we still need to repair the roof and the rooms because it needs fixing badly.

What would be the best option? Let somebody rent it or just sell the house? What do you think? ?????



We don’t really have divorce here in the Philippines. We only have legal separation but in my opinion is the same as divorce because the marriage couple will break-up eventually and have their separate for the rest of their life.
What divorce really is? Divorce means the legal break-up of a marriage. It is generally a painful business. Since for most people marriage are more than simply legal arrangements. Divorce marks the end of a relationship which began in LOVE and MUTUAL trust. It may be especially painful to children, who will be distressed by the unhappiness of their parents, and who may have to choose between their father and mother. The upheavals of a divorce often cause children to behave badly and may affect their school-work and even their friendship, but usually children readjust, as do their parents.

In the Jewish and Muslim traditions, divorce at the wish of the husband was always easy, though not very common. The Catholic Church, however, does not permit divorce, and even today it is still not permitted to have legal divorce in some catholic countries and even here in the Philippines. Following the Reformation, most Protestant Churches allowed divorce under certain conditions. Martine Luther called divorce “an external worldly thing”, on which the law counts rather than the church should rule. Therefore, the courts began to grant divorce in cases where one partner had failed to observe the mirage contract.

We can’t really determine if couples have a successful marriage in the future but if we want to have our family to stay together for a long time. I think understanding, communications, trust, faith and love in each other is important. But before you get into marriage, we must also be preparing spiritually and mentally and financially, so if bad things or a temptation comes we can always control ourselves.
