I mentioned in a previous post that Ian's folks dropped off some groceries the last time, right? Well, in that batch of groceries, they also gave us 3 cartons of fresh milk, and 2 cartons of fruit juice. I remember that Ian and I happily stocked the fridge that day, and that the cartons looked so pretty, lined up neatly in the bottom shelf.
At that point, I also remember thinking to myself, "Wow. I've never had so much fresh milk at one time, in like, my entire life..."
Lolz. Oh, the sadness of it all. XD XD XD
Seriously, though. When I was growing up, my parents went through several droughts, and because of that, fresh milk was considered (and still is, though not as badly anymore) a luxury. After all, a carton costs about 75 pesos, and it contains about 4 glasses of milk which has to be consumed as soon as possible, because it can go bad. Compared to 50 pesos worth of powdered milk, which can last for about a month, and only needs a scoop's worth to make a glass of milk... well, you can see the difference, right?
So, whenever we had fresh milk at home, it was such a rare treat that my parents would immediately set it aside for me. They wouldn't touch it, even if I offered my glass to them, because they'd rather have me drink it instead.
Anyway, so you could just imagine how I felt, as I admired the neatly-stacked cartons in our fridge. XD XD I'm just glad that nowadays, I can afford to buy milk for myself and my parents so that they can get that much-needed calcium, too. XD XD XD---------------------------
I've been meaning to announce the glories of Multiply.com for a while now, but I've been forgetting, so here it is:
I've had the account for a good while now, and I remember that I created it several years ago, because Luis was hiding from one of his psycho-stalker girlfriends at that time and had to move his blog. Haha! Anyway, it looked ugly back then, and after all these years, it's only now that I actually managed to start using it.
Plus, it was a MAJOR thing for me to figure out how to finally merge both my LiveJournal entries and Yahoo! Photos stash in the same place. Amen.
And yeah, they have that nifty badge-maker thingy, too. :D
