A few days ago, I was busy browsing through lists of phones that I could choose from as a gift for my mother’s birthday. We were going to surprise her and my siblings & I were already planning where to celebrate and who to invite. I guess the universe had some other plans for us because we basically spent the week in a hospital.
- The good news is, my father’s very much okay. My mother was just so worried about him because he’s not been getting any sleep from the pain so she thought it was better to have him stay in the hospital. I was a bit emotional that day because never have I seen dad being confined before. He was actually the last person I would imagine being sick. It could be a blessing in disguise, though. The whole “Dad’s in the hospital” news brought everyone in my family together and my mom couldn’t be any happier about that.
- We still managed to celebrate mother’s birthday in the hospital. I was able to buy a bigger phone for her which wasn’t really that expensive. I gave her a Samsung phone last year but it only had a screen size of about 4.5 inches which gave her a hard time reading texts, so I spent an hour choosing between a 5 and a 6-inch phone. Luckily, I chose the former because I figured she wouldn’t like an oversized phone to carry around. I didn’t take a photo of it, but it was an Alcatel Pop 3 & it was only for P4,399. If you’re looking for a cheap phone with good specifications, I’d say go for Alcatel Flash Plus 2 instead. It’s only available on Lazada, I think, but the reviews are good.
- Remember that Boum perfume I bought last time? I had an unused set that I gave my little brother so he could present a gift as well. Big Sis of the Year, that’s me!
- To reward Gelo for being supportive and helpful this entire weekend, I treated him to Project Pie. What a better way to reward someone than with pizza?
