We've all encountered some kind of hardships and troubles in our lives...mine was something about money.
I remember when I was in grade school, when dad quit his job abroad and stayed with us since, mom forced herself to work to get something on our plate every day. Its a moment in our lives that will always stay with me. I cannot forget how tired my mom was like during those days...
She was a food vendor in front of the school gate (like isaw, hotdogs etc.)
She even put up a small eatery at a tricycle terminal with a capital borrowed from 5-6.
She wake up so early in the morning and sleep very late at night.
I usually gets very emotional when I think about it till now. My mom did everything she could for us to survive.
I remember having only one pair of shoe for school. It was very old and torn down. My mom cannot get me a new one and she would stitch it up and glued it together so that I could use it again. But I'll cry and asked her to get me a new one.
Yeah, I was a brat.
How many school outings and excursion did I missed? How many school projects did I struggle to pass due to lack of fundings?
Jollibee was just a dream for us during those days.
Our television set was terrible, you have to kick it first before I could watch my fave show.
I don't wanna go back there again. I just dont.
Now that I'm earning enough for myself here in Doha, I have to stop spending so much on unnecessary stuffs.
Its funny when I was working way back in our country, my ten thousand pesos salary was not enough, and now that I get paid many times over that, its still not enough!
Maybe its true, you get higher pay, you also get a higher lifestyle.
I've been a material "girl" for a while now. (Girl daw talaga e noh!LOL)
bakit kasi naimbento pa yang shopping!hahaha
More than a year na ko dito la pa ko ipon.
This have to stop.
Today as I was getting a bottle of soy sauce from the grocery store,
I smiled and thought to myself:
I used to eat rice with just soy sauce in it for dinner...
