Wee Weekend Activities

Saturday was a lazy day for me! Nate and I just stayed home, did some fun stuff, sang, slept, and cut papers! Lol! Nate loves to cut papers and I let him do it with an adult supervision. Because if not, he'll either cut things he's not supposed to cut or accidentally cut his finger!

Yesterday was a busy day, I woke up at 5:30 and readied to go to church. Unfortunately, we were still late, but with consistency (and 30 mins early wake up time, we will make it on time, hopefully!). Our church is located in QC and we live here in San Mateo, we don't own a car so we commute going there. We need to leave at least 1 hour earlier than the start time to make it there on time. We were able to do that before, but now, we greatly fail at it. I hope we can do it again and be able to go to church on time. huhu.

THE GANG! Me and my team, on our way to church.

Sundayvotion: "I am Doing a Great Work, I Cannot Come Down"

Today’s Sundayvotion is from the worship service that we had earlier from the book of Nehemiah. How many times in our lives were we doing good things but were suddenly side-tracked? We may not notice that, but even in the simple things that we do at home, this happens. 

Nehemiah is a prophet who worked as a cup bearer during his time. He was called by God to rebuild the destroyed wall of Jerusalem. After the Israelite’s captivity to the Babylonians, they were in great need of protection. A wall back in the days is a sign of strength and power to the enemies. If you have a strong wall that surrounds your city, it can mean that God’s blessing and protection is upon you, in the face of your enemy. This was why Nehemiah helped in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem.

Wednesday Wreview: 4 Things I Learned about Lazada Return/Refund Policy

I'm a Lazada shopper for years. Not that I shop very often but as I checked my account, it turned out I had a total of 8 items ordered from Lazada since 2013, these were the orders that I placed using my account, not counting those that I ordered as a guest, which I think would also be about 5. One of these orders was cancelled without my knowledge but I was informed of the status of it later on.

The most recent order I made had a missing part on it, the USB which makes everything else completely useless. Whether it be a blessing or a curse, I learned so many lessons, and I hope these lessons can make me a wiser buyer in the future.

The Order: Specifications of Ultra-Thin Fashion 2.4G Optical Wireless Keyboard with Cover and Mouse Kit (White)
The Problem: Wrong Color received and there was a missing part (USB to be exact)

1. Always check the reviews
This doesn't just apply to Lazada orders but to all online orders that we make. I was too careless not to check the review because I was so confident that I won't have any issues with Lazada, I was wrong. Had I checked the reviews, I would've known that the supplier I was about to order my product with doesn't provide a good service.

The first comment was mine, of course. But if I was too wise to check the reviews, I would probably be hesitant to order - lesson learned.
