Got promoted to Bank CEO and COO

Oh no, NOT ME!!! 😛

A few days back, I heard a female kid’s voice said, “Lola Flor, hulog po!”. Then after a short while, one of my nephews came in and said, “Mommy, hulog ko po.” I got a bit puzzled on those hulog things. Did Mommy lend money to those kids?

Well, just a backgrounder first. My Mom has really been very active in a lot of community organization activities in the past. She even volunteered once for an NGO that in specialized streetchildren management and poverty alleviation. She managed to secure livelihood and educational assistance for the less fortunate families in our dear community.

For years now, Mom has been out of this community organization thing and has been solely busy with her business endeavor. Her non-profitable sari-sari store, that is! LOL! And so, just very recently, my dear Mom again made efforts to doing something for the kids around us. I found out that she encouraged them to save up some money. I think she wanted the little ones develop the habit of setting money aside not only for the rainy days but for more important things as well. Hmmm… I wonder why my Mom did not walk me through that kinda thing when I was young. LOL!

I was really impressed with Mommy’s determination to impart this saving-up notion to those kids. I even got more impressed how she keeps and records their funds. See how resourceful and creative my Mom is:

My empty Lays canister got transformed as fund keeper while my obsolete floppy disk thingy served as passbook case.

O di ba naman, they were able to recycle my empty Lay’s canister and use as their money vault alkansya. And did you notice those colored booklets? Those are the kids’ self-made passbooks. Passbook kung passbook! Feeling bangko talaga ang mga ito!!! Hehehe!

The depositor and Bank CEO in action, whehehe!

Oh well, Mommy indeed got promoted from sari-sari store owner supermarket proprietress to Bank CEO and COO. Whehehe!

Keep it up Mommy dear! 😛

    sige open ka na ng account, kaso kanya-kanya ang gawa ng passbook ah! we still don’t offer interest. we’re still thinking how to properly invest it with minimal risks. o di ba, parang totoo! hehehe!
