My Template is Boring

As I wanted to drive more traffic in my blog, I joined Link Referral a few days ago. To my surprise, it really worked. People started reviewing my site which encourages me to write and improve my blog.

Retire in the Philippines

Morning coffee is always refreshing and times, fresh ideas start to pour in. One of the idea I talked with hubby today is about a retirement homes for foreigners.

I think this is a business which has not mature yet, still blossoming specially in provinces.

Philippines is probably the best place to retire. A lot of nurses and caregivers are going abroad to take care of the sick and the retirees when they can just work here for good. Salary is not that big compared to other nation, but at least you are close to your family and your roots. read more

My Cinderella Shoes

While in Surabaya, we went to a shopping center Atom. Its similar to our 168 here. I saw really kinky shoes and sandals from a certain shop. Bought 2 pairs at Rupiah 330,000 or in our currency Php 1,650 per pair. Wow. Great. Went home happy!

But when I arrived in Manila, opened my luggage, tried my cinderella shoes and guess what I found out. Check the pictures.

The sales girl gave me the pair in different colors and in different sizes. What can I do? I can only laugh.

I called up my friend in Surabaya to purchase the other half. I hope its still available. read more
