…I just ride in one. As front seat passenger. On a regular basis. And the car belongs to the fiance. He bought it last February and since then, our trips in and out of the city have significantly improved. You can say we’re enjoying having a car at our disposal. Now we can go wherever we want, at any time of the day. Owning a car, according to the fiance, has not only made our life easier but allowed us to appreciate life better. I can’t agree more.
But owning a car can have its downsides, too. Your number one enemy would be fuel prices. Here in Manila, oil price hike is a common thing. Traffic is next. We all know how bad traffic in this country can be. Third would be paying for your car. The down payment alone costs an arm and a leg. The succeeding payment, in the form of monthly amortizations, can be burdensome at times. Unless, of course, you signed up for a car loans title to make things a lot easier for you.

With the busy life that I lead, I know I tend to forget appreciating the blessings coming my way. I also tend to forget thanking the one above for each and every little grace I receive. Okay, I guess I’m starting to feel guilty now. To appease my inner (and kinder) self, I have decided to blog about the 10 things I should be thankful for last week. Yes, last week and not this week because it isn’t over yet. Last week as the time period to be considered is safer because I can definitely enumerate the things that made me happy in that week, though it’s gonna be in no particular order.
I hope this becomes a weekly thing for this blog. Just like what I’ve been seeing in some other blogs I’ve been blog hopping on. I won’t promise though lest I fail myself. Without further a do, here they are:

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.

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.

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.
