A Smart Traveler And The SMART Rewards Program

I always spend less and travel more often. I mean I am a certified budget traveler . I choose  to be frugal at all times.  And I am not terribly picky just so you know. To me every single peso counts now a days. I always make sure that I wont go over my spend limit. 

It really feels ultimately great when you get back into the swing of things. In the last couple of weeks, I was really busy at work. It has been crazy busy that I had to bum around a little traveling some places in the Visayas region. * wink.

I love traveling just so you know. It is so nice to meet people down the road. It makes me feel that I am rich. Rich that in the way we travel , it enriches or lives and that's something we can never buy. In the last couple of years , I have been showered  with some of the wonderful and surprising events  and hopefully I will continue to be blessed with wonderful things in my life.

Living in a corporate world is somewhat stressful , so I need to destress myself. I will eventually leave the corporate world for more challenging and creative life. I still believe that right now there is still a corporate ladder to climb . But again we will never know. It's something that we can not predict. 

But anyway, I was away with my family for a little while and now I am finally back . I am ready to bond with family. I miss them so much so I thought that it's worth something to blog about. 

I love family bonding. Since it's a weekend, the whole family made a decision to watch scary movie. I don't know why scary movie. The scare factor: There’s something about being scared, period. Screaming and a lot more . Since I have enough Smart Reward points , I , myself and the rest of the family chose the " Fright night" Colin Farrell Is Hilarious and Scary in 'Fright Night'. Surprisingly decent horror movie. Just enough gore and humour added that makes it a great vampire flick. Colin Farrell’s performance as the vampire-next-door makes you glad that these creatures don’t actually exist. The transformation from his human to demonic features were also quite brilliant. 

But, Have you heard of the SMART Rewards Program? I bet you have an idea what I am talking about. Just to give you a headsup , it is a loyalty program of Smart ( Philippines's first Rewards Program for mobile) subscribers earn points which they can get to redeem Smart Items .

Something you need to know

Family bonding is a little thing in life that can make a difference. Watching movies with family is a great activity . Watching the movie with your popcorn and drinks ..

We may have different background and family lifestyles but I will tell you this. Family bonding will never go out of style with SMART Rewards. 

It was a great family weekend and an awesome SMART Rewards B Code experience. Hope you’ll have a wonderful B Code experience too!
