One of my 2014 resolution is “magtipid”. Well, am not really magastos, but I have a few weaknesses too.
1. Groceries and eating out
I never think twice when it comes to my cravings, cooking and baking. Every time I want to try a new dish and it calls for a new spice or ingredient, kaching! Walang isip isip!
When am out naman, I always make it a point to buy Dino’s and Liam’s fave food, kahit sang damakmak pa ang pagkain sa bahay. I just can’t help it, I want to make them happy lang naman.
I also have a bad habit of treating our staffs, especially if am the one who initiated where to eat and if i knew that it’s out of their budget na. Kaching!
Ever since Dino gave me my first pair, I never stopped loving and owning another pair. In total, I already have 10prs – 5 of which are still with me. Yeah, I give my old ones to my nieces and once to my MIL. 🙂
Now, I’m eyeing 3 more designs – Flora, Chada and Flare Slide. I already told myself that I don’t need it. Dino agreed to buy me 1 na nga pero am really controlling myself. Ok pa ung 5prs ko. Ahem ahem very good ako (thanks!)
I never came out of this store empty handed. Ewan ko ba, there’s always something I like in this shop. Kaya last that I went out, I really did not drop by this store! Ahem again.. applause naman dyan.
4. Last is our stores (not ours like Dino and mine but stores we’re handling here in VisMin)
I also have this bad habit of buying stuff from our stores even if I don’t need them. Ganun kagagaling mga staffs namen, pati ako nabobola.. O ganun lang talaga ako ka-gullible. Hehe
That’s just what I really spend on. Pero bigger percentage of all my spendings is in food talaga.
Anyway, back to my topic.. With this resolution in mind, I stayed away from Maldita and did not let my staff talk me into buying any of our products. BUT! out of curiosity lang, I dropped by Yosi Samra store. They just opened a branch here in Ayala Cebu last November 2013. Kakatawa pa, I really don’t know this brand, I asked my staff pa, ano benta nila puro cigarettes? She told me, “No, Ms. Juvs, I think they are selling ballet flats.’ Shunga lang talaga. hehehe
So before even stepping in the store, I was very firm not to buy anything. The store supervisor was very nice and accommodating. Pero kahit na I kept on telling myself not to be fooled. Hahaha
I first tried their snake skin line and it was really nice. Insole was super soft and di masakit sa paa. I checked the price, GULP! 2795. A bit pricey for a ballet flats.
Pero firm ako, so I gave the pair back to Josh (the sup). I am so firm that I even went around. Next, I saw their slippers. The footbed was soft also and it looks nice on my feet.
I even tried 2 prs since the first was too big for me. I almost lost my will power pero again, firm ako, so I returned both pairs to Josh and went further and checked their Croco collection (as per Josh, these are their new arrivals).
Oh no!!! All my will power went missing when I tried this one! I checked the price P3,795 Oh my gulay! Too pricey for a pair of ballet flats but it did not help my will power to come back. I just really LOVE this pair!!
Am glad I did not give in to Dino’s FitFlop gift, I was able to ask him to give me these shoes instead! YES!!! hehehe. Thanks to my Bobe for the early Valentine’s Day gift and date (of course I wore my new pair to our date! 😉 )
