‘Just got home from my 12-hour shift and I am feeling exhausted. Alyssa wanted to eat adobo for dinner and I cannot even get myself to cook. So we had to drive to the Filipino store to get some ulam. I bought chicken-pork adobo and dinuguan, Alyssa picked up chicharon and a pack of Moo Selecta Choco drink. I paid almost $20.00 for just few items (sigh!). But seriously, I should not even complain about what I pay because compared to the $25 gas/day¬† that Rolly spends plus the house, the cars, the motorcycle and the bills, my expenses are basically nothing. It’s good to know though that we are able to save some and spend some…

I guess, everybody’s (almost) having same financial issues in one way or another. At work today, we gave $2.00 each for a chance to win the $160M lottery for tomorrow. Everybody’s just hoping we can win, and quit work at the same time! Lol! Funny thought! Deanne said she will travel and won’t stay on one place. Zyg, he said he will still be live the same life he has here in the US but will definitely buy a house in Germany. As for Isella, she will buy everything her two boys want. For me, the very first thing that came to my mind is to pay off my loan to my Mom and Dad.

Money. Money. Money. Who said it will never make you happy? Reality is, money is the reason why we work hard. Without it, we cannot afford the simplest thing we need. Or cannot even dare to dream of the biggest thing the heart desires. It might be the root of all evil as they say, but it does not happen often. I mean, it doesn’t apply to everyone and it just depends on the person. The thing is, money works both ways. And as a human being, you have to choose which way you are going to use it so as not to harm someone else. It is a matter of doing the right thing, and making decisions as we all ought to do.
