Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income. Growing up, I know that once you graduate from college and earn a degree, you can earn a living. But there was a shift of mindset when I was exposed to the power of social media.

Barney's Meet and Greet

 My kids rarely watch Barney but when they do, they enjoy the purple dino’s show especially my gibberish speaking little girl. So when my friend told me that Barney’s going to be in town, I immediately told J to bring the kids to the show. He doesn’t like the purple dino by the way but he gave the kids a Barney CD. Pretty ironic eh?




I was more excited than my kids because I know it’s not like Barney’s going to be in town every time. So we planned to go to Lucky Chinatown on a Sunday but since J has earlier plans I thought we understood each other that we need to be in the mall at 1:30 pm. In short he thought I told him the show’s going to be at 3:30 pm. But still, we went to the mall hoping that the purple dino was still there. But because we were almost three hours late, the purple dino wasn’t there already except for the stage and the toys for sale. Two words, epic fail!





So we went strolling around the mall instead, as it was my first time there. And when the teeny tiny feet of the little girl got tired and was already thirsty for a drink we grabbed some from Chatime.

While I was on queue, J was taking photos of my little boy and some Chinese nationals who were seated adjacent to them took photos of him also. They enjoyed taking photos as well as D enjoyed posing for them.

Meanwhile, while they were taking photos, my little girl was busy drinking my drink also.
That’s what happened to our epic fail meet and greet with Barney.


Does your child like watching Barney also?
