I'm Officially Broke

Labels: , ,
Posted on Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Makoy toast with wineToday, I was able to check the SOA (Statement of Account) of my two credit cards. By the way, I forgot again the password of my other credit card account. I have to request for a password reset again. Darn! This time, I noted that password to a safe place so next time I would easily remember it. Back to the SOA, I was very surprised to read that I over spent my budget. I'm now worried that I won't be able to pay the whole amount in full.

Before I went for a vacation, I bought gifts for my family and friends. Of course, I used the plastic money and it was my fault that I wasn't able to monitor my expenses. In Manila, I also used my credit cards when I shopped for clothes, canned goods and also when I dined with friends. A lesson well learned and a reminder to all of us with credit cards to always charge within our budget.

It's just funny that I have to feed myself everyday now with the canned goods that I have purchased in the Philippines. Yesterday, I had PureFoods Corned Beef. Today, I had Ligo Sardines. And tomorrow would be a suprise pick between Century Tuna and Sisig. Toast to that!

Can you spare me a can of Century Tuna? Just kidding. I just missed some of the Filipino's food that I had when I was in the Philippines.

At least you enjoyed yourself in the company of family and friends. I'm sure it's worth every centavo.

Pero yes, it sure would put a big dent in your bank account.

Enjoy your delata! :)

I think you did not regret spending every bit of it

but yes, you're right... having that convenient plastic card can be idea especially if you want to monitor the money you're spending
