ZenVentures: Life in Asia Part II - Conserving H2O with Tabo and Balde

I have been posting a topic on the way we Asians live and how we can incorporate them in our US life in order to conserve and save some money, especially with how the economy is here right now. Our gas prices have been going up and up away like Superman without the cape! :) - fortunately, just yesterday (saturday), I saw that the prices went down for a bit. The highest in Charlotte that I saw was $4.00+ depending where the gas station is situated. Yesterday was $3.89! not much but promising. Life here is not paradise like everyone thinks back home in Pinas - kayod kabayo ka dito! Kung wala kang training sa "pagtitipid" eh patay ka! The life portrayed in so many US movies and TV series that a lot of Asians watch in their homes doesn't even scratch the surface of the reality of living in the US. It's all but propaganda, if I must say! Those are all but fictions. Sabi nga nila, you can't really understand unless you experience it yourself. Life here is just the same as anywhere else. We earn dollars, we spend dollars! - Anyway, check out my Ec0-frugal tips and if you have any thoughts or ideas to add on, please don't hesitate to let me know. Maraming salamat po!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. MY brother law served as a missionary in the Philippines. He's 6'5". He stuck out. But he loved his time there. Malo Kita is the only thing I remember him teaching me. And it's been 5 or 6 years, so that might be wrong. Anyway, gas has been horrendous! But where I live it is getting better!! Yesterday I filled up with 89 octane at only $1.59/gallon. Envy me. :)
