Actually, hindi kasi ako traditional Chinese. I don’t even know how to speak the language but medyo obsessive kami ni Tim, Elmer and friends sa Chinese horoscope!

Thank you Tessa!!

So what else did I do for CNY? Well, yearly bumibili talaga ako ng LILLIAN TOO CHINESE HOROSCOPE BOOK. You can find that sa National or any bookstore. So far, ok naman sya sakin. If you don’t know your sign, you can check http://www.wofs.com then you can buy yung book based on your sign. Every year yun, addict kami nila Tim sa book na yun. We don’t follow it religiously but guide lang. Usually naman all the tips makakabuti sayo, so walang masama 🙂
Last year, a friend of ours bought charms. D naman talaga ako macharms but kasi nung pagkatapos nya bumili nun, super bongga ng taon nya. She got a super hit tv show na lead sya and daming projects. This year ata, masmalaki na mga charms na binili nya. Haha! So dahil ayaw kong palipasin ang swerte, I asked my handler Benj (he speaks Chinese kasi) to buy me a couple of charms. You can check sa book or sa http://www.wofs.com what charms you need. 
Coincidence or not, parang bumongga ako kasi may mga matagal na collection na bigla kong nacollect and parang super busy daming work pumapasok and take note hindi pa new year nun. So naisip ko, bili narin ako more pa. haha! But wag naman yung umaapaw ha? A feng sui expert also said bawal din sobra.

Ayan, super dami actually na charms. But hindi naman yan hula hula. So you can ask them how to go about it.

They said Buddha daw dapat binibigay. So maybe you can get for your friends!

You can ask for a guide like this. Ready na sila actually, yan ang parang summary ng book and website. So it has all the basic charms you need. All signs meron sila.

The 3 amigas! OO nga pala, make sure to bring a bag when you go, bawal kasi hawakan ng iba ang charms. So better na shoot kagad sa r bag mo after sya ibless. And in case may makahawak by accident paguwi nyo, bilad lang daw sa araw para mareenergize.

Super fun adventure with my loves! Benj thanks for helping us out. Emma, mukhang effective ang charms since hindi na kita makita sa pagkabusy mo, and Margie mukhang todo ka ha! Dami mong afam!
I got lots of charms for myself, although we should remember that tayo parin ang gagawa ng destiny natin, so think of the charms are reminder to do good and well. Actually sakin parang psychological sense of confidence din sya to see positive. Yung tipong,” I’m sure may bonggang project or opportunity this month kasi tutulungan ako ng dasal ko plus may charms pa” and true enough parang the positive energy attracts projects and ganaps!  Wala naman mawawala din kung may konting pampabwenas tyo 🙂 Bumili na kayo ng charms! Balitaan nyo ako pag nagwork 🙂
Much love,
D
