Me Versus One Hundred

What can a hundred bucks buy me these days?

Me Vs A Hundred Bucks

The answer is, not a lot! Look at what my hundred dollar gift card got me: a DVD, a key ring/ coin purse, a hand cream and body butter. Which brings meΒ to the question, how long or how much hard work one must do to come up with a hundred green andalushas? Shot, now I feel underpaid. Hahahaha!

PS: Hmmm, maybe I should ask for a raise…

    thanks bw! i did have a hard time stretching a hundred bucks. but in fairness, i did get the things i like. there’s that dvd that i got for half the price, the hand cream that’s mostly out of stock (when i visit the shop) and the olive butter which i use everyday. the key ring, i could have live without. but my sister insisted that i get it since the one i have is worn and faded. so ok na rin for me, hehehe πŸ˜€

    i should not be complaining how peso strengthens over dollar. but arrrrg! i can’t fool myself when everytime USD drops, my pay check goes with it too! waaah!

    we use the same hand cream! πŸ˜€ buti ka nga your gift card is a hundred bucks, yung kurips na company ng asawa ko ang binigay sa employees nila singkuwenta lang hahaha! ano kaya mabibili namin dun???? πŸ˜€

    anyway, great loot! tama si bw, at least everything you got is of high quality πŸ™‚

    hello bangge! i myself am happy to hear that our pinoy peso’s going strong. but then as ex-pats who sends graces to manila, it can be a toughie. cause we had to add a couple more dollars in the pot, dba? sana lang eh wag ng bumababa pa ang exchange rate, hehehe πŸ˜‰

    don’t you just love the hand cream, meeya? a friend gave me a small bottle of that cream about a year ago and i was hooked on it. it’s rich and does makes our skin smooth. dba? pero kamot ulo nga lang sa price tag, hehehe. and what’s worse, they’re never on the sales/ clearance rack. huhuhuhu 😦 pero sige nalang, basta malambot ang mga kamay, hahahah.

    as for the gift card, a medical supply company gave it to me as there way of saying thank you. they won the bid kasi for the hospital i’m working for and they got this huge order from us. in fairness naman eh they’ve been generous, even sending me a fruit basket almost every week. not bad, dba?

    ano ka ba, buti nga ikaw may $50. kami nga dito sa ofc eh wala, kasi wala raw budget. yah right! anyhow, i’m quite happy naman with the items i got. it’s not a lot, but it did put a smile on my face πŸ˜€

    i love body butters! πŸ™‚ ganda ng keyring/coinpurse! we have that DVD rin which we got on sale a few months ago. malayu-layo ang narating ng 100 namin kagabi sa old navy! πŸ˜‰ pampasalubong sa mga mahal sa buhay. hahaha! πŸ˜€

  8. sardonicnell · January 24, 2008

    thank you, weng. glad you like the stuff i got, hehehe. sa totoo lang eh nakonsensya ako sa pinamili ko. but come to think of it, i seldom treat myself. kaya okay na rin, dba? you like body butters too? sarap sa balat noh, hehehe.

    you were at old navy pala hah, how much damage did we do? pero ok lang yan at para naman yan sa ating mga minamahal. speaking of pasalubong, time for me to hit the malls again para magpuno ng kahon for christmas 2008 naman. hahahaha πŸ˜€
