5 Sources of My HappinessNovember 18, 2014
Hi everyone! If you’ve been watching my Youtube Videos you know that in my recent upload, I vlog about my updates, new haircut and e-book release for SavingsPinay. You can watch the video in this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VO_xOXn-oxc or watch it here:
There are those who questioned my sudden hair change from medium length to short and partly shaved. It was such a courageous move for me as I always feel like my birthday should mark with a change and it starts with a new haircut. My theme for this year is 21 and Better and in a couple of week I will be releasing My Personal and Financial Goals for 2015. Hooray!
SavingsPinay Status. The pageviews went sky high come the month of October. It was funny because same month last year I only get 250 views in a month and now I get not less than 4,500 views!!! This means a lot have been seeing the need for financial literacy in today’s world. As announced in the video above, this Friday I am intending to release my first e-book. This is not fancy at all and just a PDF file which I will surely spread via email to my subscribers. If you still haven’t subscribed to me via RSS then here’s a quick link: SavingsPinay.

So You Want to be a Freelance Writer by Elizabeth Ong. I was at Recto the other day for an event need when I suddenly thought of going inside the big National Bookstore. I am not planning to buy a book but on the sales section I saw the book that I’ve been wanting for the longest time but I procrastinate at buying. I know how much this book could help me in jump starting my freelance writing skills better as the writer part of me is so much eager to release my creative side once again. The book is down to 57pesos only from 115pesos!!! And upon punching by the cashier the book became 35pesos!!! That’s so much savings and I got the book that I want!
My Parents. I never felt so much close to my parents now that I am already working. They’ve been very supportive to me in every aspect of my life. I love having the time to bond with them when I don’t have work and help them out in our small balutan. Though they may feel guilty because even if its my day off I still have to work in the tindahan, I assure them that I do it out of love and because its my obligation as part of the family. Hope I can make more libre to them soon.
Ber Month Events. Ber Month is the best season for event business and I am very happy because I received tons of booking for November, December and early January. It’s nice that I am able to earn extra money since a lot of expenses show on the holiday seasons. I recently hosted a Debut of Twins and it was one of a kind hosting experience for me.
Lyron Clyde. My brother’s son has as always been the reason why I am always happy when I go to home. I love him so much! He is my stress reliever and my shock absorber. This kid knows how to ease my tiredness from work.
