An Impulsive Shopping Spree and BPI’s Latest Credit Card Promo

I don’t have a BPI credit card but the boyfriend’s sister has one. That’s why a few weeks after BPI launched one of its exciting promos, I ended up shopping with her. Actually, I didn’t see it coming last Monday night. I thought I’d just stroll the mall with her and the boyfriend while the rest of the Philippines was busy finding out who were leading the polls (read: barangay elections). But, before I knew it, I had already committed to pay for my purchases with clasped hands and a silly grin.

So, what is this particular promo all about? BPI credit cards let you shop and do deferred payment at 0% interest for a minimum purchase of P5,000. It’s quite self-explanatory if you’ll ask me. You shop for a few months worth of supplies and pay for your purchases in installment within six long months. It’s practical and at the same time, convenient. And who wouldn’t be tempted if there are tons of participating stores offering the same promo mechanics?

Six Years and Counting

Yesterday was sort of a milestone for the boyfriend and me. It was our anniversary as couple. Six blissful years of being together. And counting. Ours is a relationship that have, so far, withstood the tests of deception, infidelity, boredom, fading love and other foul behaviors and actions. Yes, we are not the perfect couple but we try to be the best person for each other.

I’m thankful that we have gone this far and yet we are still very much in love. He makes it a point that we see each other everyday and never fails to make me laugh. I, on the other hand, have always been the supportive girlfriend. I motivate him to pursue his interests and achieve more and not settle for second best.

Our Birthday Trip: Day 3 and Day 4 in Boracay

This is the second part of my first Boracay getaway with the boyfriend, our birthday trip to be exact. You can read the first part here.

If there’s one thing you’ll love about Boracay, it’s the locals. They are behind any pleasant experience you’ll get in the island. From the porters and peddlers to the by-standers on the beach, they’re all very accommodating. They will point you to the right direction if you’re lost or can’t seem to find a particular place. But of course there are still those folks who take advantage of hapless tourists, but they’re only a handful.

Our Birthday Trip: Day 1 and Day 2 in Boracay

This is the first of two parts of my first Boracay getaway with the boyfriend, our birthday trip to be exact. You can read the second part here.

During the last four days and three nights, the boyfriend and I were in Boracay to celebrate our birthdays and give ourselves a break from the hustles and bustles of the city. We were happy that Boracay was enjoying nice weather during our visit. Two straight days without rain and just drizzles on our way back to Manila. We couldn’t ask for more.

Dealing with Moving Blues

After signing the one-bedroom apartment contract for a year’s lease, and finalizing the arrangements with the owner two weeks ago, my siblings and I are now bracing ourselves for the big move. The agreed date was October 15, but the owner said I could already get the keys as early as October 8 so we could start cleaning the house and transfer furniture, closets, etc.

All four of us siblings are very excited about this move. I mean, we have long wanted to get out of our old, dilapidated boarding house. It was just that, before, we didn’t have the resources to do so.

Why a Man’s Voice Matter (To Women, At Least)

One thing that attracts women to men is the voice. A man’s voice does not only add a lot to his masculinity, but also to his character as a person. Men think of the same about a woman’s voice, don’t they?

As I have observed, a man’s voice can either be deep, husky, sweet, loud, boyish, sexy or cockroach-sounding (boses ipis in Pinoy slang and is a big turn-off to girls). I know it’s kind of shallow but I’d be a hypocrite if I’d tell you that I’m okay with dating a guy with a cockroach-sounding voice or another with a voice that sounds like it came from underneath the earth’s surface. Definitely, I’d go for a decent-looking guy with nice voice over a good-looking guy with terrible-sounding voice anytime.
