Hello Nursing Scrubs!

After spending the last 4 years in DLSU-Health and Sciences campus and after going through rigorous training in the said nursing school, my dear sister is finally graduating! And by graduation, I mean no more boring white student-nurse uniform and hello to nursing scrubs! Like her, we're very excited too!

Now, we're searching high and low for the most comfortable and inexpensive scrub tops because she's on the heavy side so she prefers comfortable clothing for her to work efficiently. We've found a lot online and thanks God it perfectly fits our budget! Hurray for online shopping!

Seriously, this batch went through a lot and I must say that those who will graduate this year is indeed worthy of being called a nurse because their years of training was no joke. The nurses coming from this prestigious school are well-trained, disciplined and knows what they are doing.

Congratulations, Saydie! we're so proud of you!

Planning and Planning Still

Now that we're really serious in acquiring that lot in Tagaytay, we're now thinking on what to do with it. Hubby and I are getting a 250 square meter lot somewhere in Pasong Langka, Tagaytay City, Silang Cavite.

It's within a subdivision but we're not planning to put up a huge house on it, just a rest house made of bamboo and other native eklavu. My dream is really to have a place where my kids can run around and rest at the same time and I guess this lot is very perfect - affordable and huge enough for us. We are not after a farm lot because it's too expensive and we would still be needing caretakers, right? But for sure we'll be planting fruit-bearing trees and all :)

During weekends, the whole family will travel all the way from Bacoor to spend Saturdays and Sundays there. And hmmm....the idea of stargazing under the tent attic is very, very tempting. Barbecue on the weekends, perhaps?

Oh, I can't wait to get hold of that lot LOL!

I'm in need of a financial advisor! HELP!

Ever heard of a financial advisor? I haven't until my financial life went crazy and here I am looking for one. If you are an investor who needs good qualification financial professionals then you need a good company with financial advisors complete with credentials, business practices, services and most importantly professional ethics.

Don't just jump into anyone and ask for financial advice. You need a reliable company if you want that close to perfect transaction. Find the best company like Paladin Registry - they have well trained professionals from financial planners, investment advisors and money managers.

Crazy it may sound but I am in dire need of a financial advisor. Our financial status is indescribable since I stopped baking last January so the money coming in each month was lesser that I have expected. We have pending loans to pay and months of unpaid mortgages. I hate to jot down each one of them because I would go crazy - that's a fact. Now all I need are resources, more resources where I can get enough moolah to cover our overdrafts :( I know that this isn't the best solution but it's the only one I know :((

Should I apply for a loan with Social Security Services?, get a multi-purpose loan from Pag-ibig? jump into loans from individuals? I don't really know. I have not settled any of our bills yet for this month and for sure I'd go crazy again mid-month on where should I get enough money to pay for it. Sad life, isn't it? I feel like I'm Becky Bloomwood-Brandon now with neck-deep overdrafts and a dire need to SHOP.

Babae Kapuso ka ng Bayan Entrepreneurship Summit 2011

Yesterday we went to the Babae Kapuso ka ng Bayan Entrepreneurship Summit in World Trade Center in Pasay. I love attending trade shows like these because we always get a lot of freebies from various exhibitors, apart from the things we learn from speakers. I am a business-minded person, remember? So every little detail I get from them is considered a treasure.

It was quite late already but there were still a lot of open trade show booths. My eyes feasted on the 1,001 wonderful items around me but too sad I was out of the budget already hahaha :)) There were toys, lots of it! Food, kitchen items like knives, hand towels of all kinds of materials, table skirts and many others! The 1 hour was not enough to go around the booths and appreciate all the products for sale!

I saw banner stands of various relaxations parlors offering a lot of to-die-for FREE spa services like hand and back massages, foot massages, head massages, facials and FREE products! Some even have installed Pipe and Drape for privacy of those having whole body massages.

It was one amazing event and I wish I could go back there again but at this rate, I could probably not :(
