Ideas to Save Money

“Excited na ako sa shopping ko sa Paris,” Tin told us with Patrick on his side.
“Pat! Lagot ka! Mag-sha-shopping daw si Tin… sa Paris pa!” we all told Patrick.
“Kukurutin ko si Lilly habang nagtitingin si Tin para umiyak.”

Dictation Function of OSX Mountain Lion

We were trying to book our hotel reservations for our European tour and we needed to encode “PARIS” in the destination city in one hotel website.
Instead of typing P-A-R-I-S, I have used the new OSX Mountain Lion feature: Dictation (A Siri-like program). I pressed fn thrice and the option to speak popped up. I told my computer, “PARIS”.

I was expecting a “Wow! Hightech!” comment from Ness, Patrick and Anj but their comment was, “ANG TAMAD!”
Oh! Technology! You’ve have become passé!

Hourly Group Pic

During birthdays, it’s nice to see group pictures and check who came and decided to celebrate with you on your special day.
Pat and I knew that our guests will come in batches so we have decided on an hourly Group Pic…

7 PM

8 PM

9 PM

10 PM

11 PM

12 MN

1 AM

2 AM

 

Like New Year’s Eve, everybody waited for the top of the hour and counting down the minutes so that we can finally hold a group picture.

“Kunyari pa kayong Group Pic everyhour! Gusto n’yo lang naman i-remind ang bisita n’yo na ‘HOY ALAS DOSE NA!'” My sister commented.
“Actually, gusto naming makita kung sino ang pinaka-matagal nag-stay. Pag naka-3 group pic ka ibig sabihin kanina ka pa nandito,” I answered.

White Party

Since our birthdates are close to each other, four of my friends have decided to celebrate it via a 4-way Birthday House Party.

Orlee, Che, Bing and Patrick

All our guests were requested to wear white, while we all 4 wore red.

So when other guests were not aware who were the celebrators, they just had to check who else was wearing red.

“Naka-red ka rin? Happy Birthday!” One unknown guest greeted me.

Kangaroos

Patrick gave Ronald new shoes for his birthday: Kangaroos Rubber Shoes.
While opening the gift,  he saw the spelling of his new shoes and screamed, “Fake! Dalawa ang ‘O’! Di ba dapat isa lang?”
We all screamed, “Ano ‘yun Kangaro? Helloo?”

Pat’s First Ash Wednesday

Being his first ASH WEDNESDAY in Dubai, Patrick asked, “May cotton buds?”
“Oo,” I answered, “First time mo nga pala!”
“Akala ko payat lang ang daliri nung naglalagay.”
“Ano ‘yun? Alien?”

My Bookstore is Confused

I received this text message from Magrudy’s last week:

“Magrudy’s 35th Birthday Celebration Continues: 35% off everything @ Deira City Centre & Dubai Mall. Starts Jan 20 for a limited period only. ”

I immediately told all of my blackberry buddies, “Guys, punta tayo?”
Pat and Tin shopped some Murakamis and a coffee book table.
I contemplated whether to buy 2 or 4 books but since I’m a slow reader lately, I’ve decided to just buy one Nick Hornby and one Mitch Albom.

This week, I’ve received a new message from Magrudy’s:

“Magrudy’s 50% off everything plus special prices starting at AED 2. From Jan 28 at Deira City Centre & Dubai Mall for a limited period.”

I cursed after reading this and forwarded to Patrick. His only reply was a simple, “Kainis!”
I immediately posted something on the Magrudy’s Fan Page.

My only consolation to myself is that I only bought 2 instead of 4 books. Grrrr…
