I'm not a fanatic of Chinese Horoscopes or Feng Shui for that matter but I make it a point to check my yearly forecast because somehow it really made sense for me. Manila Bulletin always have this special supplement to welcome Chinese New Year and I never fail to get a copy. I'm not a Chinese but for the past three years I've celebrated Chinese New Year with my family.

I'm a Dog and it says that this year is not really the best year for me. But there are certain measures I could take to improve my forecast like attend only happy events like birthdays and weddings. Give to charity and be humble. I summarized the 12 month forecast and took note of the most important ones.

Careerwise.....
It will be a challenging year for me so I need to keep a low profile and be humble..... (hmmm I can do that, I'm always low profile and humble) . Be generous so blessings will continue to flow. ...(hmmm no problem, I've always been generous) Dont change career and dont sign any contract without studying the terms carefully.

Money Luck....
Money luck is promising for the first half of the year.... ( I need to double my efforts for the second half). Work hard earn more! Dont get involve with risky ventures that promises big returns. Dont be a guarantor. Be self reliant.

Travels....
Travelling gives me a certain high but I'm also very cautious with my safety. So I take note of the DO's and DONT's like I need to avoid dangerous water activities.

Health.....
I'm prone to digestive and respiratory problems. Solution is to get fit, eat healthy and dont stay out late at night. Dont go to funerals and dont visit sick people to avoid attracting negative energy.

Lovelife....
Hmmm, I will only be interested if it says I will finally meet the man of my dreams otherwise I will just skip this part, hehe, I've started to believe this guy is non existent LOL .......


And by the way my lucky colors are Black and Blue ... well they've been a favorite eversince
.

To sum it up ..... Feng Shui is just plain common sense but then common sense has become rare nowadays, so these guidelines will sure come in handy

One thing for sure, I will take note of all of this but the most important thing for me to remember is "Why Worry When You Can Pray" I lift it up all there to the BEST GUY up there!

It was Jan 6, 2009, my sister called me while I was taking my lunch coz I got a phone call from Shopwise..... I wonder what it was, maybe a promotional offer whatsoever but I took it nonetheless (well I have a habit of not taking calls from unknown individuals who would just waste my time especially when I'm in the middle of doing something important like eating my lunch). Anyway, to my big surprise it was a call to inform me I won one of the consolation prizes of their Christmas Promo. I remember then that I submitted quite a handful number of raffle tickets I got when I did my Christmas grocery shopping last Dec 21. Well, there were few pieces left that I wasn't able to fill up because my hands were quite tired writing the same thing over and over again and I said my chances of winning is very remote considering the bulk of entries that will be raffled. I didn't submit it on the same day I did my grocery shopping, but I made sure I will drop it off the day before my Christmas vacation since I wont be in the Cubao area during my Christmas break. Anyway, I didn't win the grand prize which is a Chevrolet Captiva ( I was actually hoping to hear this from the girl who called me but I already have a feeling just from the tone of her voice, that I just won a consolation prize). But then still its a big blessing and I thank God for this gift ........ A 20,000 pesos worth of Shopwise Gift Certificates

Here's a scan copy of the letter I got from Shopwise with my winning raffle ticket....




Well, this is a valid proof that raffle promos from legit companies really work ........ you're either lucky or not (once upon a time I also won a ducati bike, well I'll tell you about it next time) .... for now I must say this year started really good for me!!! Im hoping it will continue till next year. I really pray so .......

My 20,000 worth of GC ..... yipppeeee!!!


this is it........ dont ask me how I spent it, hehe but one thing for sure me and my family benefited from this gift
