If I Were a Millionaire...

I'm actually having second thoughts about writing this because you might all think I'm materialistic. Well, maybe in some level I am. But really...aren't we all? Even just a tinge? Personally I think there's nothing wrong about dreaming of material things from time to time, right? Things we see in the mall, on television, etc. Just keeping it real.

That's why I thought of writing this blog post to write about what Richie and I would do if we were millionaires. Hold on... hmmmm.... since we're dreaming and all, might as well change that to Billionaire. Hehehe. We love playing this game! We always play this game in the car during traffic. "Game! What do we do first when we win the lottery?".  Things we want to spend on when we have lots of money. (I keep saying WHEN instead of IF so I can attract it! ;-) One has to always assume a happy ending!

...pay off all credit cards

If When Richie and I are billionaires, first thing we plan to do is pay off all credit cards.



I want to be able to see a tree waving through the breeze when I look outside my window.

If When Richie and I were are Billionaires, we would get another house. A bigger once just enough for us + 2 kids + 1 cook, and a helper for cleaning. We don't need a mansion really. But we do want a huge lot! So our kids have a lot of green playing area. And I want to plant trees around my property. I want to be able to see a tree waving through the breeze when I look outside my window.


I would go to the first Apple store I see and purchase an iPhone5

When Richie and I are billionaires, I would go to the first Apple store I see and purchase an iPhone. If you know me well, you would know that I'm very much fascinated with mobile phones. Be it a simple alpha-numeric phone to a super high-tech smart phone. I like looking at them (go figure). But as much as I am fascinated by this gadget, I am not the type to change my phone every few months or every time a new model comes out. In fact, my BlackBerry Torch 9800 is more than 2 years old. That's not so bad right?  Which is why I have been dreaming of getting a new smartphone. I want to go back to iPhone so I think I want to get an iPhone5. White. (And get a kikay casing at that hehe).


The most important thing to me is that we go to Disney World...

When Richie and I are billionaires, we most definitely plan to travel. No need to get first class tickets. Maybe business class for trips that are more than 6 hours. The most important thing to me is that we take the kids to Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sesame Street Place.


I now also want to go to Bora Bora. Its just so breathtakingly beautiful!

And because of this FaceBook page called Amazing Things/Places in the World, I now also want to go to Bora Bora. Its just so breathtakingly beautiful! That could be me in the picture!


...a family van for road trips. We'll call it the "Fun Z" har har har

Cars? I don't intend on buying the luxury ones. I don't really care much for cars. Of course as long as its brand new (to spare us some headaches caused by 2nd hand cars) and is either made by Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, or maybe Ford? We want at least 1 sedan car and 1 family van for road trips. We'll call it the "Fun Z" har har har. I'm clueless with cars not like my sis Pretty Pink Piston and my dad hahaha!


I'd want to give to a charity that gives free schooling for kids.

We also plan to give to charity. I know it sounds cliche but we really do want to. I'd want to give to a charity that gives free schooling for kids. So children will at least know how to vote wisely hehe. Education = awareness = wise voting = good leader = great future!

Of course other stuff like Rain's tuition from play school until college will be covered for already. And we'll start a business of our own. Not sure what yet. Richie and I don't plan on pissing all our imaginary money away. We want to be practical about things.

Siiiiigh.... it's so nice to dream! I know I'll keep on looking at this post so I can attract it all! Think positive! Law of attraction is The Secret! ;-) And of course 100% faith in God!

Old photo of Rain and Richie goofing around hehe. They are all I will ever need :-)

Then *poof!!!* I'm back to reality. Looking at my husband and my daughter sleeping beside me at 2AM and I'm thinking how happy I am that despite all the challenges, I am 100% lucky that I have these two loves of my life and that they are very healthy and happy! At least I have this checked on my wish list already. In the end it's what matters most :-)

How about you? What are your wish lists? :-)

  6. Ako, naka-plaster na sa utak ko kung anong pinakauna kong gagawin pag milyonaryo na kami ni hubby. We both agreed with this: We (me, my hubby, our parents, our siblings, the kids in the family and my only remaining grandparent) will undergo executive check-up. :) I'm dead serious with this. :) Then we'll pay our credit card debts and pay our house and lot in full. We'll also pay our parents' debts and give them something to fuel their businesses with. Tapos we'll give to our preferred charities and institution - one for cancer patients, one for a tv station's charity works, one orphangae and one for animal welfare (because we love animals, espicifically dogs). Allot money for business. Go on a trip with the whole family. We'll save for our son's future, this includes education and ample amount of money na iiwan namin sa kanya when the "time" comes. And the last one, creepy as it may sound, but I want to prepare for our & our parents' death. We'll buy memorial plans for us. Baka nabuhay nga kami ng marangya, eh baka magkasakit kami at maubos ang pera. Paano ang burol at libing namin. Ayokong ibalot na lang sa banig. Gusto ko ng bonggang mausoleum noh. ;)
