I love getting cute and interesting stuff for our small apartment. Once in a while I go to Novo and pick up some real cheap but cool items like this water bucket.
I think I got this one for only P90.

My long time online friend, Arlene, who eventually became a friend IRL visited me here in Subic last year. Traditionally, we always bring pasalubong for a friend we are visiting and Arlene did not fail to do that. She knew that my fave color is violet so she brought me something that would certainly make me smile. An addition to my accessories to compliment my look when I go to work.

No matter how tired I was that long night, I still have to keep myself awake so I can spend some time with her. However, there were times when I just couldn’t. There were even times that I just don’t feel like eating and bathing coz I prefer to get some sleep. Before 9pm, I should tuck her in to bed, otherwise I won’t be able to do my online tasks peacefully.
I survived for a year until I saw my daughter making milk for herself. At 3 years old she was so independent that when I doze off to sleep, after a couple of times trying to wake me up for milk, she just stopped and made one for herself.
