A Good Investment

It’s good to invest while you are young. Different kinds of investments are available such as stock markets, mutual funds, banks and properties. Examples of properties that can be a good source of investment are lands, antiques, jewelleries and many more, because the market value of these properties becomes higher. While young, try to buy properties that will benefit you in the future. For many women, the easiest way of investing is buying jewelleries like ring, necklace, earring, anklets and faberge jewellery. Well, I think I have to ask my mom to collect jewelleries and sell them after five, ten or twenty years haha! 

Holiday Sale

Holidays are near so we must be ready for shopping because malls usually offer holiday sale during this season. Last year, I shopped to buy things for Christmas like gifts, foods and clothes. In our country, employees receive 13th month pay and other companies give bonuses so people are rich during Holidays. Malls take advantage to that so they offer discounted items starting from personal to household. Last year I also saw Christmas tree, lights, decors and faberge for sale. Faberge eggs became popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s. That time, only famous and powerful people in Russia and Europe owned Faberge eggs; Queen Elizabeth I was one of them. Well, it’s nice to see faberge for sale especially in Holiday season.

Thinking of Gifts

Thinking of a gift to give to my loved ones in every occasion is pressuring me. For example, every Christmas, I have to think of a gift not similar with my gift last year. To think that I have numerous godchildren and relatives, giving them joy is my primary goal but it’s a little bit hard hehe. There times when I give them money as a gift; my older relatives like that but children don’t. As a result, I prepare a list of gifts every year, I will archive them (create a separate folder on my email perhaps) and then compare the list for this year to the last year. There, I think it will be convenient now to buy gifts this coming Christmas.   

Our Gift to Grandma

We celebrated grandma’s 82nd birthday last Monday. That day was really special to her because her grandchildren were complete and it was like a big family reunion aside from Christmas or New Year family gatherings. My grandma has eight children and my dad is the eldest so the gift from him must be special hahaha! My sister and I thought to give grandma a chocolate cake with two sets of number 82-shaped candles colored blue and red (two sets). Father’s other siblings also gave grandma some presents like ice cream, clothes, money, special bread and more. However, for grandma, her children and grandchildren’s presence is the most important gift on her birthday.
