I really should get a hold of myself whenever I feel stressed or angry or sad or maybe a mixture of all three. I beginning to master the art of swiping that evil creation called the credit card and create a huge blackhole in my savings account.
I bought the following items in a span of two days only. Goodness.
Shawl and headbands - 400
Note: This is not one of those statement scarfs that seemed to be patented by Chuck Bass which is now in the same level of my love for those "Blairbands." Hell, this makes those Correspondent reporters fashionable five years ahead. Since when did the Abu Sayyaf look became in?!
Derma medications - 1000
Okay so these, I really need. I've been lagging in my medications for two weeks already because I was too lazy to go to Tomas Morato where my dermatologist is located.
Folded and Hung tank top - 200
This one's on sale.
Loose powder and retractable eyeliner from Beauty Bar - 625
My pressed powder is all used up and I think I may have broken my eyeliner. So technically I am just replacing previous stocks. I really love Beauty Bar. It is a haven for frustrated kikay/maarte ladies like me. There I admit that I am maarte or maybe not really.I could stay in there from the moment the mall opens until it closes. Swear. I just happen to adore watercolors and crayons when I was a kid so now that I am all grown up, I channel my adoration for art into contouring my face.
This helps me. Magastos nga lang talaga.
I accidentally bumped into Ayen while strolling around Crossings in Trinoma last night. I actually texted Ela for coffee but she wasn't able to read my message until I was already aboard the MRT. Talking to people keeps me sane whenever I am troubled so that's what I felt I should be doing last night. So Ayen was heaven-sent last night. (Oi palakpak na tenga ni Ayen haha!) We spent the night over lattes at our default place, Coffee Bean. We saw familiar faces in our former high school teachers, who apparently also found their default place in the same coffee shop to check their papers and utilize the free sockets for their laptops. We also witnessed a very loud crowd of women in their forties whom we guess are having a reunion and hoped that they would realize that they are taking away the coziness of the place and go to a videoke bar instead.
Anyway, it was only last night that I realized to do something...
I told the bartender to check my accumulated points and I already have a whopping 250 points in my swirl card! Meaning that I could already avail of a free latte with a muffin to boot! Whoopee!
So now let's go to the calculations:
100 pesos = 5 points
Money spent on coffee = 250 / 5 * 100 = 5000
Whoa! So I have spent 5000 pesos on coffee alone?! Let's say that about 1500 of that was not mine but due to the fact that I was persistent that friends go to Coffee Bean for my points, still its still 3500 pesos for coffee! Oh well, at I need the caffeine boost every now and then anyway not just to perk me up every morning but there's just something in that White Chocolate Dream latte that gives me that serenity and contentment. It's worth the 130 pesos everytime.
