I get new glasses every year or so because my frames break every year or so. Since 2013, I’ve been buying cheap plastic frames (P200 to P300) from the department store and having the lenses replaced with graded ones in optical shops. I spend around P1,000 for them. I don’t really mind shelling out around a thousand pesos each year for glasses because it’s exciting for me to shop for new frames. I never get the same frame twice because that’s just boring.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Maybe one of my flaws is that I’m not a trained housekeeper for a five-star hotel, so I can’t keep up with your demands for cleanliness.
