Thinking of shopping again!

If you've visited my husband's blog lately, you'll know that we have an exciting new gadget in the house, which is driving the Third World Nerd crazy happy. He's so cute really.

This, of course, means we should slow down on the purchases with the impending arrival of Mr. Jelly Bean. Actually, that would be "purchases unrelated to babies" since I just got a list of stuff we supposedly need for a kid and that list is mighty long. I've already looked at how much things cost and am seriously upset.

For example, an Avent electronic breast pump is about P13,000 here, but if I buy from the US, it'll just cost me $140, or P6,200. Same goes for a lot of baby stuff--they're cheaper from online shops so I guess this means we'll use Johnny Air again.

We really really love Johnny Air! I think from now on, we'll buy our things from the US because Johnny Air ships absolutely anything and everything for an inexpensive shipping fee! We've already bought books and toys and gadgets and we really love the service. Although, we bought small and light stuff so maybe for big stuff, like a Sony or Samsung HDTV, we'll have to get from here!     

So there. Must save money now. And yet, I still want to buy this yellow topaz ring I saw in a jewelry shop last week. It's been haunting me every day! And we also saw these cute puppies for sale from Project Lightning!
Awwwww! Cute little critters! I can totally see my son with a beagle! Vince wants Jelly Bean to own a dog. Research has shown that children who had pets were more responsible, healthier, more compassionate and--this is the interesting part--were less likely to get pregnant/get someone pregnant out of wedlock. Well! That's a good enough reason for me! Thing is, we live in an apartment. With a rabbit. So maybe we'll get a beagle in 5 to 7 years' time, when we'll maybe live in a house with a big garden!

  1. Aiieeeeee, adorable puppy! My siblings and I wanted to get a beagle a couple of months ago, but it was too expensive. We got the next best thing: a mixed breed that's half-beagle (and half-Lhasa Apso). He gets along well with the rabbit. :)

    And congratulations on your blog's fourth anniversary! More power to you and your blog!

  2. Hi there! Can you give an estimate of how much Johnny Air charges for shipping, say for the Avent breast pump? Thanks a lot and good luck on the coming birth of your baby.

  3. Gosh, Dea, I want a dog, too! I just look at those adorable puppies and I melt!

    Anonymous, it depends kasi on the size of the box, weight and exchange rate. Looking at the box, siguro mga 3K. Good to buy things in a box kasi regular ang shape. Most times kasi, even if it's light (say a pillow) but it's long or bulky, then its shipping cost goes up.

  4. I love puppies!!! Hahaha, cute beagle

  5. Tisha, Birdie, I know, right??? Adorable! Just makes you want to reach into the photos and grab 'em!
