I had a lot of fun today….My partner in crime or buddy buddy in school decided to shop at what we call LA in our town….We only have 500 pesos each or about 10 dollars each to buy sooo many items like bags,personal items,accessories, pillow cases, and food like biscuits, sea foods, soya beans,cauliflowers etc….And since we knew how to really ask for some bargains we were able to buy all those things combining all our money for only twenty dollars….Yes….these days it’s like we need to become wiser in buying commodities since we are experiencing financial crisis….and I also notice that there are less shoppers now in most of our stores than before this crisis happened…..So we really need to make some necessary adjustments to cope with this crisis….even in our own little ways….Yeah it’s true when you have so much money you have greater demands but if you have less you learn to just seek for what could be enough for you….Do you think we could apply this to what’s happening to us now?…. Like in the US they produce much, yet… they waste much as well…..with deficits too…..In our country this is happening as well though it’s just one of the many factors we have to blame….
Oh my, while we were shopping I had to bargain and the seller told me…..”Yes Maam I can’t give that price to you if you want let’s just “change roles” here ok?….You’ll be the seller^^ and I’ll be the buyer so I’m gonna buy it already for you^^. ….Well he really made me and my buddy laugh but while we were walking away from him…..I said to myself…..”He is such a loser haha^^”….But that was ok honestly I really am not angry about that coz I knew how hard it is to earn a living nowadays….and these people are just trying to make a decent living in order to support their families….
And as if he had planned his revenge on us^^…..my buddy accidentally stepped on a sticky substance (the place has so many unidentified objects lying around^^….we can’t afford to shop to first class stores^^)…..”Wait Sollee please step on it…. remove it pls.”…..”Okie okie”…..So I stepped on it….”OMG…..it stuck on my shoes”…..”Ces pls. step on it too”….”OMG…..Ces said…. it’s too sticky it won’t go”….”Scrub it Sollee”….Oh my^^….we were stranded almost in the middle of the road^^…..
Yeah….we Filipinos are easygoing…..even if we are in the middle of a certain crisis….we still manage to smile because we have so much faith in hope that in spite of some problems we may be facing we know everything will be okay in the end….
Today is a blessing again….I have received lots of blessings for the past years until now….I should be happy….and I am…
I thought of some good things I’ve done and those naughty^^ ones as well….Somehow I want to keep those good things in my heart…..
As I grew older I notice that I am learning to appreciate myself more and all the efforts I’ve done in the past…..Maybe it’s because of how people see us and appreciate us or how we’ve shared our lives with them and made them happy…..I see how people cling to goodness no matter how complicated situations have been in their lives….in our lives…..Yes….we always change for the better in the end…..We may be on the wrong side of the road for quite some time but later on we realize our efforts to do good will always prevail….That’s how we see life….we see people….We never fail to understand others because that’s how we really see ourselves…..We knew people are like us….goodness dwell in those hearts of ours….Deep inside we only wanted what’s best for others…..
And today is a blessing again…yes.. coz it’s my birthday….hoping that I could make other people happy in the simple things I do….from now and for the coming years to come….I also thank God for this day….and I thank everyone who have shared their lives with someone like me….
I just wanna share some things to you today my blog….I was glad to have more time in teaching my niece now than before….Yes I was like focus on other things and I forgot to spend quality time with my niece…. She really needs me….I see her interest in learning her lessons…I also admire Ella’s dad, he’s really the one who exert lots of effort in teaching my niece…and what I do to her is just a small effort….unlike what her parents sacrifice for her….Now I realize how important it is to spend quality time with our love ones….I mean it isn’t about being with them all the time or most of the time… but it is how we use the time we have with them….
It was a busy day yesterday and I miss blogging^^….I was assigned to administer a test in another school….Every grading period we transfer to other schools to act as proctors….I don’t know why we have to transfer while my students are having their exams as well….It wasn’t a division, regional, or a national test….it’s just a school periodic test…..I really wanted to stay with my own kids, to be able to see how they fare with the test….coz the test was made by the supervisors not us….Yes we follow their curriculum…..but I feel like they should let us decide if some portions should be taught yet or not…..Isn’t it that the center of the educative process should be the child not the subject matter?….That’s what is happening now in our system…..The fast learners and the slow learners have the same type of periodic exams…..Our school mps as well as the other schools have been low or average because of those factors….I hope there will be changes on these things….we have been complaining but our complaints remain unanswered….
Oh^^ my mom got what she wanted^^….Supposed to be she still has to stay at the hospital for a day….but she insisted on going home….She is as stubborn as me^^….
“So do you have fevers at night? the doctor asked…..”NO…..Mama said….
“How about coughs?…….”and how bad is your cough?….”NO….I don’t have coughs….ofcourse I would cough when I had swallowed too much food^^….
“How about phlegm?…..”OH NO”….
Then the doctor said…”>_<….You always say NO”…..
“Can I go home now Doc?…..Mama said”…..
Oh my…..so yesterday she was back home…..and all of us, her children, missed her so much…..She was only out for a day but we want her to be home already….So we were so happy yesterday^^…..In a way we her children are her strength…..It makes her forget whatever pains she might be going through…..I guess we cannot surpass the love of our parents to us…..and really there’s no place like home….
