Subject: Evolution of the shopping experience

A new supermarket opened near my house. It has an automatic water mister
to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of
distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience
the scent of fresh mown hay.

In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks.

When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the
air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying for

The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread
& cookies.

I don't buy toilet paper there any more.

I have this wallet that I have been using for a couple of years now and I bought it in a bargain shop in Bangkok. It cost only 20 baht but I have a very close affinity with it. Or I think it's pathetic and it's like cast with a spell.

Here's the story.

A few weeks after buying this wallet, I got a new wonderful lady's wallet made from sting ray leather that was gifted by my student. It was the long type of kind. And this is not a cheap one. Compared to my pathetic wallet, this one costs about 1,500 baht. But everytime I used this wallet I noticed that money goes out in large amounts.

Because it is bigger and bulkier than the cheap wallet I would always resort back. And everytime I use it back money comes in in large amounts too.
I told my observation to my friends and colleagues and we just shrug our shoulders to it. But it's getting really old and torn and one friend said that I better keep it. I also told myself that I would keep it even if it looks like an antique.
However, during the last quarter of 2007 I got sick and almost died. And even if I was using the pathetic wallet that time money went out and made me broke.

When I got home in the Philippines I told myself that I need a new and decent-looking wallet. After all my pathetic wallet let me get sick and spent so much. But I want a cheap one coz I am not posh. So out I went one day to purchase a black and red wallet that looked decent enough. Again it's the long type of kind like the sting-ray one. Guess what happened? The very next day after using it, the British Embassy called me and advised me to pay 42,000 pesos for my visa. Scratching my head, I had to abandon the new wallet and go back to the pathetic one.

Anyway, I was on my way to the library today and I dropped by the charity shop. And you know what? I bought myself a new wallet for only 50p. This time it's smaller than the pathetic wallet but has more compartments for the coins and cards. It looks very decent and no scratches. I am replacing my pathetic wallet.
Oh please, I want the spell to be broken this time.
Juan: Inay! Ako lang ang nakasagot sa tanong ng titser namin kanina!

Three contractors are bidding to fix the White House fence.

One from the Philippines , another from Mexico and an American.

They go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The American contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. Well,' he says. 'I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

The Mexican contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, 'I can do $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

The Filipino contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers: '$2,700.'

The official, incredulous, says, 'What? You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure? How do you expect me to consider your service with that bid??

'Easy,' the Pinoy explains, '$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Mexico '.

The next day, the Pinoy and the Mexican are working on the Fence.
