Every penny counts

In my case, every peso counts. My mother used to say I should walk straight held up my head high so I will have a good posture. But I never get to used to doing that instead I looked down on the ground. I got this habit because I was a clumsy kid and to prevent being tripped by objects in the ground, I have to dodged them. In the process, I have seen some coins and sometimes small denomination bills. It is like treasure hunting. I would have gladly given the coins and bills to the owner if I knew who they were but it is an empty road every time I find a little treasure. These days, people do not mind or care less for coins anymore especially dimes, quarters and peso coins. But for me every coin counts because you would not have a hundred if you do not have a one peso to complete the 99.

Found a little treasure at the garage 🙂

After two months… and three treks

Two months have passed since my last post due to a busy schedule and the absence of online connection. I have gone into a rigorous training for a job wherein I would be of service to my country. It was a very physically challenging two months since I have been living a stationary life for eight years. I also had to be away from home and tested my patience and character throughout the whole process. We had to attend lectures and apply them into real scenarios. Aside from the serious stuff, what I like about the past two months was the camaraderie and friendship I had with my batch mates. We were from different walks of life and ages yet we were able to overcome that and was able to get things done because of team work. We just had our general  practice for our graduation this morning and I was very happy to know that all of us finished the course. The bonus part were the exposure activities that included trekking – challenging but very rewarding activity for me plus beautiful scenery is a big bonus.
