So they now hang inside our house, just one step from the door. I hope it will bring us luck, prosperity and financial success this year, coupled with our hard work! Happy Chinese Lunar Year to all of you!
This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
I believe that there no is no greater wealth than the good health of my family. I know that making sure that their health is properly taken care of is my responsibility and I take that seriously. Unfortunately, we are not rich and money is sometimes an issue, especially when you are raising three kids and paying mortgage and living expenses.
But a wise mother is always on the look out for great ways to make things work for the best of the ones she love and discovering Walgreens Prescription Savings Club was a great way for me to start the year! Walgreens Prescription Savings Club is offering an annual membership on a special discount at only $10! This covers membership for the whole family, including your spouse, dependents and even pets! And since I have a hypertensive husband and hypertension also runs in my family, I will surely enjoy the benefits of the prescription club. My kids are all young and they need flu shots and other vaccines and I know that I will get lots of savings from the club too! Other benefits are great savings on branded medicines and generic medicines which are actually needed by my husband and even discounts on flu shots or pet prescriptions! If you are single, you can also be a member for only $5!
So check out Walgreens on Twitter and Walgreens on Facebook to know more about this great deal and their other offerings! I am sure it will bring great benefits and savings to you and your family! And that is something to really make the year great!
This is obviously a late post, having to count my Wednesday Happy Thoughts on a Thursday, but hey, saying thanks knows no day, right? So happiness is:
1. Adelle and her music
2. My husband for making good on his promise to be better
3. Living from paycheck to paycheck, ha ha. That is indeed something to be thankful for because other people do not have jobs!
4. Hugs and kisses from the kids!
5. Smell of coffee. Yes, I do not have a sense of smell most of the time but there are moments that I have and I just love the smell of coffee!
6. Leveling up on my daily run, from 5K to 8K! Hope I can sustain it!
7. The Sto. Niño procession
8. 3 writing opps, written and approved!
9. Chippy and cup noodles
10. My happy thoughts notebook. Yep, I started one this month and I am writing down every single happy thought that I have during the day!

At the back is the marker for Ferdinand Magellan's death and it reads:Lapu Lapu
"Here on 27 April 1521, Lapu Lapu and his men repulsed the Spanish invaders, killing their leader Ferdinand Magellan thus Lapu Lapu became the first Filipino to have repelled European aggression."
Ferdinand Magellan's Death
"On this spot Ferdinand Magellan died on April 27, 1521 wounded in an encounter with the soldiers of Lapu Lapu, Chief of Mactan Islands. One of Magellan's ships, The Victoria, under the command of Juan Sebastian Elcano, sailed from Cebu on May 1, 1521 and anchored at San Lucar de Barrameda on September 6, 1522 thus completing the first circumnavigation of the earth."
One of my goals for this coming year is to try my hand at cooking again. My mother reigns in our kitchen and she really cooks great so I do not have to lift a finger to make the meal for the family. But from time to time, I ask my husband what he would like to eat and he would ask for a dish that I wish I can cook. For New Year's media noche, he requested steamed fish but I was too lazy to set up a steamer so I made this Pinaputok na Tilapia instead. (click for larger image)
