In our Urban Elite Christmas Party last 21 December 2013, we had an ‘exchange gifts’ segment. Normally, I do not look forward to kris kringles because more often than not I get random stuff that I do not like.
This year, however, I got lucky. At the start of the program, one of my org sisses, Mica, was very vocal about wanting to pick this particular item. It is a planner. I was so busy attending to other things that night so I was not really able to take a glimpse of what that item was. And besides, I already got my much-desired 2014 planner earlier that evening, hence, I wasn’t too interested on Mica’s eyed gift.
Lady Luck showed some humor though when she let Mica pick a bunch of gift certificates as her gift, and bestowed Mica’s desired planner upon… none other than… ME! 🙂
Being initially benevolent, I offered Mica to trade gifts, since (1) I already had my planner, and (2) I want to make her Christmas happy. However, when I was about to hand her over the planner, I read the words “Witty Will…” NO!
THIS ONE IS MINE!
I am so sorry. The first Witty Will Save The World franchise that I got was now not with me. 😦 And besides, when I made a quick sideway glance to the gift-giver Nanay Angel, I thought I saw some form of disappointment in her eyes that I wasn’t that interested with her gift.
NO! That’s not true Nanay Angel! I actually want this!
Call me selfish or whatever for hoarding multiple planners, but I really want this. And I’m so glad that fate has handed it over to me. So in essence, I don’t really have a choice. :-b
Why do I want it so much? Well, aside from its functionality and novelty, I have always liked Witty Will Save The World’s brand of humor. 🙂
Here, have a glimpse of some pages from THE “RELAKS, PAG-IBIG LANG YAN, PARANG KAGAT LANG NG LANGGAM” PLANNER 2014* :
The Hardbound Cover
“Huwag kang OA, it’s just pag-ibig”
A mini-quiz of how stupid you are when it comes to love. 😀
It also comes with trivia and some random add-ins. 🙂
Plus, the monthly cover-page features a “Lover of the Month”
And since the theme of the planner is “Love”, it has some extra focus on Valentine.
I truly consider myself lucky this year to have actually picked a gift that I absolutely liked. 🙂 Thank you so much, Nanay Angel. 🙂
And to you who finds the book funny or interesting, please please, purchase a copy now! I sincerely want the people behind this to succeed in their business.
* – The Filipino part of the title roughly translates to “Relax, that’s just ‘love’, it’s just like an ant bite”. The last clause references to a popular Filipino saying “parang kagat lang yan ng langgan” which doctors or nurses normally use to calm scaredy people that are about to get pricked by a syringe.
