Ok, I am officially stressed and frustrated. Why does everything cost so much? And these are basic things at that! My daughter needs vaccines to be better equipped against diseases. I see this as a basic human need and thus it should be easier to obtain. But vaccines are sooooo expensive! I don't even know why this is so. In other countries, vaccines are free. Why aren't they free here? Another thing- food. This is beginning to be priced as a "luxury good". Imaging the cost of meat, fish, even vegetables is so high now it's no wonder there are strikes for increasing the minimum wage. At this rate, the average person will have to create a kangkong pond in their garden to be assured of some form of sustenance. It's ridiculous. I can go on and on but I think i'll just stop here. I am so frustrated!

Near Valentine's Day

It's near the day of hearts and anyone who knows me knows that this is one of my mandatory 4 days in a year for celebration and gifts. I know, I know. A lot of people find this day so commercialized and consider it a money-making day for establishments more than anything else. Frankly, I don't care. I really believe I have a hopeless romantic hidden somewhere deep inside of me and that hopeless romantic looooves expressions of love and romance. And so I am hoping my hubby does something for me. It really doesn't have to be expensive or extravagant. It could be the simplest thing just to be romantic. Let's keep our fingers crossed!!

(By the way, the picture beside looked like how I want my hubby to be on Valentine's.)
