I am more comfortable, thanks to people who taught me how to value money and life. We know how
to save but we also know how to live our lives.
I am braver, stronger and wiser.

What are your wishes for the new year?
I hope that God will grant the desires of our hearts this year. That Ate Thea will achieve and reach great milestones. That Caleb will grow strong, happy and mabait na baby each day. That Alvin continue to grow in his field. That I may find happiness in all the things I do.

May we breathe in peace in every sunrise. May we find warmth in the daylight.  May we be inspired to try new things with the sight of the sunset. May we dream of great things to do during night time. May we all learn to live each of our days to the fullest.

Live,learn,love. Have a happy new year everyone!!!

***I also wish for a peaceful election. That only the deserving will take the post and that no violence will take place.
