sa basura, me pera

and i mean, literally.


the other day, while dodong and chedeng were generously giving us the needed water in the form of rain and floods, and since i wasn't able to come to the office because the heavy downpour, the entire day was spent sleeping, err, sleeping and some cleaning.

i open one huge box of memorabilias (read: basura) that i've been keeping for the last ten years that are basically just collections of papers from work. i found a ten year old working paper, audit guidelines, reviewers, my payslips (yes, for the last ten years hehe), some bank documents, ITR's, i even found one bag full of pens and diaries i think i hoarded from the company i am working some years back hehehe. and now, what will i do with them? dyusko, antigas na ng ink at yung mga diary? para sa year 2001!!!!


when i open one brown envelope, i see more papers and a red envelope, yung binibigay kapag christmas o di kaya chinese new year, it was dated Feb 1, 2001 and when i peeked inside, look what i just found:

one US dollar and 500 indonesian rupiah!

not that it will make me richer, but it was really a surprise that i have at least a P47.00 (when converted) hiding in this box full of office works. at ang linis-linis pa nung money! hehehe.

i also saw some old works of mine, some scribblings and a few poems written from boredom or just a way to stretch my imagination (i'll post some in the future).

hmm, now i am wondering what will i see next (baka japanese yen sa susunod hehehe)...

happy weekend! kanpai!

ay! pera sa basura!!! yan ang gusto ko. Ako, how I wish makakita ng pera kahit sa aking bulsa lang.... hehehe. Naalala ko tuloy noong ako's nasa college pa, madalas akong mag-ipit ng pera sa libro ko. E madalas nakakalimutan ko, kaya laking tuwa ko (at malamang noong pera na naipit ko) kapag nakikita at napapansin ko sila.

Dyoske, bakit isang katerbang "memorabilia" mula sa trabaho ang basura mo????

Hahaha! katuwa naman at me kayaman kang nakuha sa mga basura mo. Minsan nga madaling makalimot, naiipit sa mga notebook at libro ang mga envelope na pera.

Hmmm... makalinis din nga ng kwarto...

jho, isa kasi akong basurero and i have this thinking na magagamit ko to later, kaya ayun, dumami ng dumami hehe.

zherwin said...

zherwin said...

angelblush, good luck hehehe. kung wala mang perang makuha at least babalik ang mga memories ng mga binubuklat mo. naks. hehe.

zherwin said...

verns, magti-ten years pa lang. and, i am old na pero i don't look like one hehehe.

OT: ngayon ko lang narealize na ang win-win ay parang won-won na tawag ni lavender brown kay ron weasley (hp & the half-blood prince)

zherwin said...

ferdz, minsan di lang pera ang nakukuha kundi yung flashback ng memory na naka-attach sa mga basura (and i have a lot of them hehe)

zherwin said...

dessa girl, naku buti hanggang garahe lang ang baha. ansarap naman kasing matulog kapag umuulan (ngayon bumalik na naman ang init)

dodongflores said...

Interesting find. I also had fiddle around with my old things a few months back and found out just a few that are useful at present. Most of those things, I burned them all...
And just three days ago, after those two typhoons had passed I discovered all of my outdated yet expensive books were eaten by termites...
**sigh** sayang talaga, pero wala na akong magawa...

lazarus said...

I used to collect foreign currency bills. Saan na kaya ngayon yun?

I know i used to hide crisp notes in some books.

zherwin said...

dodongflores, ugh @ termites! here in the office we spent quite a lot to repair the damages made by termites. sayang talaga ang mga nasisira nila!

zherwin said...

lazarus, maybe they're hidden in some of your still to be read books hehehe.

Toe said...

Naku Zherwin, baka jan na din nagtatago ang Yamashita's Treasure. :)
