My Beetle Earrings

I love wearing earrings. It makes me feel girly and feminine. I wear all kinds of earrings except for the clip-on ones. Whenever I buy a new pair of earrings, I always take comfort and wearability in consideration. In our office, for instance, women are not allowed to wear dangling earrings. I own a few pairs of dangling earrings but to avoid getting subjected to disciplinary action, I only wear them when I attend a party or go out with friends.

My latest earring purchase is a pair of beetle earrings. I got it from a jewelry stall manned by a Chinese lady at a Baclaran mall early this year. I was able to lower the price to P100, thanks to my haggling skills. I said ‘beetle’ because that’s what the earrings look to me. They are actually faux pearls covered with silver-plated metal in the upper front shaped into what looks like insect heads with wings. The faux pearls serve as the body to complete the insect look. And those insects sure look like beetles, aren’t they?

A New Car, Baby!

No, it’s not mine but I have every reason to be happy about the boyfriend’s recent purchase of a brand new car. It’s a Nissan Sentra, 2008 model. The color is steel gray and I love how it looks cool on the eyes. Yesterday, the boyfriend picked me up in the office using it. We were both ecstatic. We never thought 2011 will be this comfortable and convenient for us, transportation wise.

Of course, the happiness is felt by the two families (his and mine). It’s gonna be our service vehicle because we share things together and we treat each other as family already. Haha. Now I’m wondering what the next step will be. Oooooops, not what most of you might be thinking right now but we’re going to that part in the near future.

iPod Touch 4G is My 2010 All-Occasion Present

As an all-occasion present for this year, I got a sleek and shiny iPod Touch 4G from the boyfriend and his sister. The three of us have this small tradition where we give expensive gifts to each other yearly. We call it the all-occasion present. Yes, you read that right. It’s supposed to cover all the personal/group celebrations we’re having this year.

Here’s how it applies: the first two givers pick a gift for the receiver and share in the cost of it. The cycle continues until all three of us have received our presents. Cool, ayt? Personally, I think it’s a great way of pampering myself with nice stuff while making two souls happy at the same time.

Globe Upgrade: My Fully Loaded Plan 499

Four months ago, I had finally decided to be a Globe postpaid subscriber after having been a prepaid subscriber for years. I chose Globe’s My Super Plan 349 which gave me unlimited text to Globe/TM monthly. I noticed that I was consuming more than the one-time charge of P349 and so I opted to get an upgrade. (Any Globe postpaid subscriber can do this.)

I am supposed to be a My Fully Loaded Plan 499 subscriber effective today. That was what the Globe Customer Service representative I talked with on the phone last night told me. I’m taking his word seriously.

SM Manila’s 3-Day Sale and My Haul

I didn’t plan to check out the mall-wide sale at SM Manila but for some unknown reason, I did go yesterday and made some purchases at the Department Store. I was with the boyfriend who, actually, was the one who did the shopping first. He went to the mall Friday night and bought two new pairs of expensive shoes. I got a bit envious of him and so, I also bought two new pairs of shoes. The only difference was that, my shoes were way cheaper than his (P350 and P440, respectively). I’m frugal, you know.

SM Manila’s 3-Day Sale started Friday (September 3) and will be ending today, Sunday (September 5). For this particular sale period, mall hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. When we went yesterday, the mall was jam-packed with people. The mere sight of the crowd could make anyone dizzy. But if you’re like me who enjoys shopping a lot, it won’t be much of a problem. Instead of looking around and minding other people’s business, I concentrated on scrutinizing the items I was interested in for defects.
