Though I already have my 13th month pay, parang hindi ko siya naramdaman because maliit lang siya (just started to work).  But for our Christmas Cash, I will spend it for my gift to my husband, it's a cellfon. But just a half of its price lang.

Then for the rest, I am planning to buy a shoes for me and dress for my daughter, siya naman ang isho-shopping ko.

We own our business, but we don't just go charge the company for everything and whatever... so my husband and I have salaries too. 
When I get my 13th month.. it is all used up for the extra bonus (in addition to the mandated 13th month pay) I give my house staff.

I just bought a new house and we moved there second quarter this year. It wasn't fully furnished so it still needs improvement here and there. I spent all of my 13th month pay for purchase of ceramic tiles and having my front yard cemented. :)
Life matters. It does. Even if you're hurting; even if you feel like the world betrayed you; even if you've come to the point of breaking down. After all, tomorrow is another day. And there won't be tomorrow if you've given up today.

My 13th month pay will be for additonal VULs for my husband and myself plus top up of existing VUL, pangdagdag for hospital fees when i give birth this month. Kung may matira pa, it will be saved for our daughter's baptism in january.

I hope di magalaw ang 13th month pay ni hubby.

Not getting christmas gifts for anyone this year.  ;D

I'm planning to save mine too. I've already bought the raw materials for most of my Christmas gifts, gusto ko kasi handmade this year  ;D But I want to buy myself a reward kaso I'm not yet sure on what to buy. Madami akong gusto bilhin kaso mabibigat goodluck naman sa sweldo ko hahaha. So until I have decided what to plurge on I'll save it :)

IT all goes to bonuses of my house staff, and cash gifts to those who make it their business to make our days run smoothly and safely like the village guards,  our drivers,  the office messengers, etc.
