As usual, I am in-charge in the upcoming summer gate away of the family. I have the lists of nice white sand beaches already but haven’t decided where to go yet. It is really difficult to decide because the kids like to go to the pool and the brothers wants the beach. Last year, I was lucky to have found the resort that has pool and beach. We agreed to go to different resort every year, so going back to the resort that we went last year is not a good idea. As far as I could, I want us to explore the nice white sand beaches in the nearby city. Different beach, environment, view and experience is always the best.
I am in the middle of selecting the beach beach to go to this summer. I have to be in a hurry because the day of our gate away is fast approaching. Meanwhile, I am making a list of the things what to bring. I have to list down carefully because the year I forgot to bring the knife.lol They are blaming me for it. arghs! I do not want to happen it again, so I am taking extra careful this time. I asked the help of the sister, so this time, every thing will be taken cared of. Hopefully when I decided where to go, they will like it. If they don’t I really don’t care.LOL

Next month, the family will be having our summer gate away/bonding. We are doing this regularly during summer. The kids are now counting the days of our summer bonding. Though we haven’t search for the nice beach yet. The one I am suggesting is not good to them so I am letting the SIL look for the nice beach. We are still waiting for the SIL to tell us where to go to. It is not easy to look for the nice beach if you have to consider first the budget. When it comes to budget, it takes lots of time to finally decide.
Meanwhile, we are busy planning on what will be the foods to bring and our outfit and swimwear. Yes, we are giving more time to think of the best outfit to protect our skin. Last year, we are wearing two-piece swimsuit and I must tell you it really burnt my skin. Even if we applied sunblock lotion, sun burn is painful. I am thinking of wearing long sleeve type of swimwear since it is in nowadays. It surely protect the skin from the raging race of the sun. I told the sister already and she likes the idea. Where to buy? I don’t know yet, we might go to the thrifty store.
I have two slippers at home. One inside the house and one that I will wear when I go out. These days I do not like wearing sandals when I go out. I feel more comfortable wearing slippers when I go to the mall, schools, park and when visiting relatives and friends. My slippers are still in good conditions because I take good care of it. I do not allow others to wear my slippers. When any members of the family wants to wear it, I always say no. They say names of me being like that, and I do not care. That’s me!
Even if I still have two slippers, still I bought new slippers for summer. I do not feel like wearing old slippers when we will have our summer gate away. But before buying the slipper I am sharing, I thought many times first. The style is unique and very comfortable to wear. It is not plane, it is like massaging your foot sole. Plus, it has 10% discount that makes the decision easy.
Yesterday, my sister asked me if I want to go with her to the nearest mall because she will be paying their electric bill. I said yes right away because I am planning to pay the SSS ( Social Security System) contribution of my brother at the Bayad Center ( payment center). Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to pay the contribution because they do not have form anymore. They are still waiting for the form to arrive. I am sad because I need to wait for next week because of the holy week vacation. Also, disappointed thinking of how come they are running out of form.
After we paid the electric bill, the sister and I went to the beauty store in the mall. We are not planning to buy anything there, just looking and trying free products.LOL We were applying the free body scrubs products, when we saw the buy-one, take-one body scrubs. She wants to buy and try it but she needs to read what is written on the label before deciding, also checking the smell. We headed to the cashier after thorough reading and checking. It means it passed the sister’s standard.lol My day is still fruitful even if I did not able to pay the brother’s SSS contribution because of the buy-one take-one body scrubs that we bought.
