Thank God for Neighbors

I don't care what others say about money. It's pretty important. I don't think I can live without it. Today is survival day. I don't know where I'd get money to buy me food. I have 73 bucks but I still need Pesos to go to SM Fairview and have it exchanged. Can't do that.

Ate Fely, mommy of Allen, brought me some brekky. Ginisang ampalaya with sinangag. After a few minutes, she gave me some hot choco. Oh my God! Thank you.

I went to Manang Ateng, mommy of my good friend, Nimfa. She owns a store and I asked if I could "borrow" some corned beef. I also told her about my problem. She offered me some money and phone credits. I need to call Northwest and Kuya later.

I used Allen's phone to call Northwest. I talked to Jeff and he informed me that my luggage will be traveling from Detroit to Manila tonight (same flight as I was yesterday). That means, it will touchdown in Manila around 10:30. Now, that's a good sign.

In the meantime, I can worry about other things. Kuya finally reached me and we got to catch up. I told him about my delayed luggage and my helplessness at this point.

Can't do much today. Once I get the money, I'll be paying my neighbors, including Bok who picked me up at the airport.

I heart my neighbors.
