I was always content with my Coffee Bean Hot Vanilla. It's like sipping special sweet milk on a cold day or a cold CBTL store. I was never a fan of the Coffee Shops during my college years and I am only beginning to enjoy working and eating in a coffee shop while time slips away. I'm also a fan of the CBTL Spicy Tuna Linguini. I recently bought a Swirl Card for my WIFI use (need to spend at least P45) at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and I chanced upon the Limited Edition Blue Swirl Rewards Card and the Sony Vaio promotion.

I love my Allied Bank Mabuhay Miles MasterCard. It's the coolest way to spend my money. What's the secret to saving money in spending money? It's not only the miles. It's not using your credit card as a credit card but as a debit card. I need to condition myself to spend only what I have and if I have both the cash and the credit card, I choose to pay via credit card and separate the cash already in my wallet. The Ultimate Reward - Miles to Everywhere in the World and a chance to practice holding that cash until I clear it with the bank.
I know the banks may already be closed for the holidays and this post came a little too late. I cleared all my outstanding accounts today in preparation for the New Year. I feel so light and I am looking forward to my next credit card statement indicating a P 0.00 balance there. The key to getting that zero credit card balance is not adding any more expenses to the record or if you really have to spend, pay that debt and your accountabilities before that billing man arrives.
I waited until Christmas to open my gifts. I obviously love receiving gifts. I don't share the same views as to giving them though. I don't force myself to conform with the Holiday Rush (as well as the Pasalubong Rush, see my Saving Tip # 4 in this link). I prefer to give gifts-for-no-occasion than gifts-for-an-occasion.

The Diplomatic Wife is giving away Quirks items for its Philippine readers.
As a travel blogger, I found the following items useful from Quirksph.com – the Travel Luggage Scale and the Save Money Box. I wish I could have them under my post-Christmas tree this year… Total: less than 1500 for both practical things!

I have decided to share my rocky relationship just to join this contest and Steal These CamSafe Anti-Theft Bags from Pixel Pro Camera Stores. Vince is giving away a bag worth P6000 and another one worth P4000.
Back to my story - Well, HE (clue: he's the boy) just gave me a Lumix GF1 as an advanced Christmas gift and I was still deciding a few days before Christmas if I would give it back to HIM.

Eat Your Way to Italy Without an Itinerary
My plan is to take in the sights and flavors of Italy without an itinerary. All I need are maps and a plane ticket. To be lost is an adventure in itself. To meet new people is always an experience to remember.
I learned something from the KLM ad they kept on playing during my 5-day Movie Marathon during the CineEuropa Festival (http://guiltlessgetaways.blogspot.com/2010/09/cineeuropa-13-10-europe-through-my-eyes.html).
That sometimes, it's not just all about the destination, it's the journey on how you get there that matters (even just by dreaming about it, maybe the universe will conspire to make it happen if it sees your effort and desire).

To win this luxurious hotel stay is enough savings when traveling abroad. Like it or not, the accommodations do take up a big chunk of your spending for travel, especially when you want comfort partnered with your trip. If I can win it, then I will only answer, "Why not?"
