What I Got Myself for Christmas

As I will be spending Christmas Eve outside the office (whew, a first in 3 years!), I thought of spending my morning of Dec 24th with a quiet time in the bay area. A coffee date with myself! It's been a while since I got myself a "Quiet Me Time."

my 2010 planner na 1st time kong nasulatan today ^-^

One fine morning. Bay area. Banofee Pie + Mocha Frap (Dont liked it very much, I should have stick with my Iced WCM!) and my journal where I listed down the things I wanted for 2011.

I can't believe Im longing to have this time alone. Parang last year lang, I cant even enjoy eating out on my own, what more travel solo! But dont look now, I've been to 4 places this year all by myself, 2 of which were done outside the country.

So that's the priceless gift I got myself for Christmas. ♥
Now here's the pricey part... ^-^

I know I have planned to own a high-end laptop in my To-Do-List, but I realized I really cant afford a Mac Book Pro with the specs I wanted. Super expensive! I cant afford it. =(

So what my brother and I did is go to Gilmore and buy the components of a desktop computer.

Intel Core i5 3.20GHz, 4GB RAM, MSI H5MM-E32 motherboard,
NVIDIA GT220 video card, 1Terabyte HD,
22" LCD monitor, Creative speakers, multimedia keyboard

I can't be happier with what I got. Ang gwapo ng new baby ko! ♥

In preparation for a home-based job! Winner! ^-^

Plans for working homebased? I've been working home based for the last 3 Years..and all i can say is Sobrang nakakabobo and you'll miss all the kulitan time at the office! pero ok lang din u'll get by..

working home based means more quiet me time!!

godbless!

First, happy holiday. What's your home based job? And I noticed your speaker. I am planning to buy one. Is that brand ok?

Madz said...

Congrats on your new baby! So sleek!

More and more people are working at home na (I used too), is that for a sideline thing or are you becoming a full time work at home employee on your current job? :)

Diamond R said...

After I gave everybody their Christmas presents, I checked my imaciated wallet and I found to my surprise that I can only get for myself a cup of fresh, hot cup of senior coffee at McDo LOL. OK lang, Pasko naman.

Congratulations on your new baby :) Good luck on your homebased work plan. I've been working from home for about 2 years already. No regrets :)

Skron said...

Now that's smart and frugal. Assembling a kick-ass PC rather buying a Mac.

I'm saving for a new Graphics Card and a Processor as well.

As for what I got this Christmas, I got a Kindle and an Android Phone.

Not a material thing kasi every Christmas I'm buying something hehe kaya ngayon, save muna.. I'll invest more on travels this coming year, at least hindi magdedepreciate ang value.. PRICELESS!.. :)

Merry Christmas everyone! :)

Hi Chyng! Merry Christmas!

You made the right decision. :-)

Nag-isip tuloy ako bigla kung ano ang gift ko sa sarili ko...hehehe! Actually, wala pa as of now. :-)
Hindi ko pa alam ang bibilhin ko sa 1 banig ng Rustan's Gift checque from hubby!!! Hehehe! At first, I was so excited na mag shopping, but then I realized na saka na lang kasi I have 1 year to spend all of them. ;-)

Onga pala, good luck sa home-based job mo. You will surely enjoy it, kasi I've been working home-based since 2003 pa. :-)

The Nomadic Pinoy said...

Nice gift for yourself Chyng! Ako naman, I gave myself a new DSLR this Christmas - an upgrade from my old Nikon D80.

Photo Cache said...

Ang galing galing!

2 years na akong nag di dream ng either Nikon or Canon dslr - kaso di bumababa sa $1800 ang price - naka sale na yan. Kaya tiis pa din.

Husband and I didn't get anything for ourselves this Xmas - but we are going on another trip at the end of January - delayed gift to each other :)

btw - i never get those fancy drinks at starbucks and pete's anymore. i stick to good old amerciano.

Jakey Junkie The Bunny said...

Very splendid PC you got there!

Pareho yata tayo ng default order sa Istarbuko. White Chocolate Mocha. I'd have it Frapped or Hot.

Marami-rami ka ngang adventures this year, and yeah I personally think that that's the best gift you've got for yourself. Sana next year, maka-travel-travel na din ako. I'm yet to meet Mt. Samal and its zipline.

What I mostly got for this Christmas was, books. :D
