Practical Finds and Faith in Humanity Restored
Every time we’re at Festival Supermall, we always drop by our favorite place National Bookstore. We went there today after buying a small piece of cake at Red Ribbon because I am craving for one.
While Ren was at his fave spot reading books, I roamed around to check some writing notebooks for him this school year.
Since the school wants the notebook color coordinated, I chose the one with colors already. Here are two notebooks that I saw.
here’s the picture of the pages for you to see the little difference.
as you can see the Advance Notebook on the left is almost half the price of the Orion notebook on the right. They are both 80 leaves by the way.
As a practical mom, I have chosen the cheaper notebook.
While checking notebooks, I put down the cake box in one of the places inside the store. I went from one place to another… then I got comfortable and I forgot about the cake.
After a few minutes, I felt that there was something missing, I remembered holding something, then I remember the cake.
I went back to all the areas I went to, but I couldn’t find it. Oh no! my cake was missing.
I felt cold, I then went to Ren and told him that my cake was missing and somebody might have took it. He said, oh that’s wrong mom, where did you put it?
I can’t answer back because I don’t know the exact place where I put it down. I told him not to get mad at me because we don’t have a cake to bring home. He said, “it’s okay next time you need to be careful”.
When I was at the cashier, I asked the guard if he saw somebody went out with a cake. He said, “Red Ribbon po? nandun po sa customer service”. I was surprised, my face lit up.
We went to customer service immediately and viola we were reunited with our cake.
I can’t believe it, I thought that it’s gone already. I was blessed today. Akala ko may nagtakbo na sa kanya, may umagaw ng iba.
I was surprised…… naka move-on na ako e, gusto ko lang ng closure kaya ko tinanong yung guard. May pag-asa pa pala, minsan dapat ipaglaban mo din at wag kaagad mag give-up. Malay mo nag-aantay lang pala sya na balikan mo #hugot
