Because She Would Ask Me Why I Loved Her by Christopher Brennan

Leave a comment

If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
If all our tale were told in speech
No mouths would wander each to each.

Were spirits free from mortal mesh
And love not bound in hearts of flesh
No aching breasts would yearn to meet
And find their ecstasy complete.

For who is there that lives and knows
The secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need
To thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?.

Then seek not, sweet, the “If” and “Why”
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.

DAY 24: Investment books and more research…

Leave a comment

“If you want to grow your wealth, grow your wisdom.”

– Bo Sanchez


I stayed home all day and read the books my best friend gave me about saving and investing.  I am now a proud owner of Eduardo Roberto’s “Ang Pera na Hindi Bitin” and Bo Sanchez’  “The Abundance Formula.” The books are short and helpful but as soon as I finished reading them, I felt like it wasn’t enough so I went online and looked for other helpful tips about investing. I came across Pesos and Sense videos and I learned a lot from the first few episodes. Another book that I read and enjoyed was Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.” 


“You’re only poor if you give up. The most important thing is that you did something. Most people only talk and dream of getting rich. You’ve done something.”
Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad
The first two books are perfect for Filipino readers because the authors  used examples that applies to the Filipino culture and values. It’s the same with the Pesos and Sense blog and videos by Sir Aya Laraya, they are very easy to understand and are very helpful specially to those who would like to invest in the Philippines. Rich Dad, Poor Dad is more on investing in the western settings, but it still provides good insights regarding investing in general.
If you are trying to learn about investing, those books I’ve mentioned are a good start. It will give you a general idea about how you can save money and at the same time make your money work for you. As a newbie about investing in the stock market, I think it’s important to learn more about it before putting your money in it. I was told that the lack of knowledge is one of the reasons why people lose money in the stock market.

I woke up early today and I can already feel the change in the temperature… Winter is coming! In the Philippines, people are starting to put up their Christmas decors and playing their favorite Christmas songs. Here in KSA, it’s business as usual. LOL. We had a 5-day vacation to celebrate the Eid, so, I pretty much slept and read the days away. Anyway, i’m back at work so , yeah…boring.

On our other blog, my friend Rock Chick Fairy is giving away 2 ebook sets written by Kristen Ashley. She’s a huge fan so she’s doing the giveaway once a month (I think). Please click the banner to be redirected to the raffle.
