The Dreamer in Me

Image result for shopback

I am a dreamer and I’ve been one ever since I was born 47 years ago. It’s easy for me to imagine the impossible coming to life.  

I have many plans and dreams. Many of those have to do with creating beautiful memories with my husband and children by travelling to different places

 trying new adventures, 

tasting different cuisines,


exploring new cities, etc. 


I can go on and on but far more important than just planning and trying to do everything to make all these dreams a reality is my resolve to submit and discuss each one on my list to the One who knows everything…the One who knows what’s best for me and my family. 

I know these dreams pretty much involve a lot of money. But hey, that’s the beauty of being a dreamer… you are not bound by time, money and age. You can just dream away and leave them unto God’s hand and wait.

"The world is a book and those who don't travel, read only a page." "Collects memories, not things."  

These quotes ring true to me. That's why this wish list has a lot to do with my love for travel, adventure and life in general.  As a ShopBack member, I've successfully book accommodations several times through Agoda.

I was extremely happy with the discounts I received.  It was last year when I registered and first tried ShopBack and I never regretted using it.  I was after savings, discounts, savings, discounts, savings, discounts and indeed, it has given me so much savings and discounts!  In fact, it was my go-to website whenever I need to purchase online.  ShopBack is really worth-recommending!  Oh yes, I'm one happy ShopBack member!  So...what is ShopBack and how does it work??

How does ShopBack work?
ShopBack helps you get the best deals and discounts on 300+ stores, plus Cashback! Cashback is really just "getting cash back" - When you spend online through ShopBack, we give you a portion of your purchase back as Cashback. This means extra, unlimited savings whenever you shop online!

How does Cashback work?
ShopBack's merchants reward them with a commission for referring me, you, us, anyone to shop on their site. Instead of keeping the rewards all to themselves, ShopBack shares them with you, me, us!

How to use ShopBack
Step 1: Click on any store through ShopBack and get redirected to the store's website

Step 2: Shop as usual on store's site and make a purchase

Step 3: Get Cashback in your ShopBack account within 48 hours, under the 'Pending' tab
Your Cashback will turn 'Redeemable' once order is validated by the merchant. This will take 30-60 days to ensure that there is no order cancellation/return/exchange. You can request for payout once you've reached Redeemable Cashback of P300.00. Bonus can only be cashed out when your Redeemable Cashback reaches P300.00

Step 4: Cash out your Cashback to your PayPal or bank account.

So simple, right?  I do insist that you register now and try it out.  Here's the link: 

Now, going back to my wish-list, for my 1st wish --  I would love to book a hotel in Hong Kong and Macau via Agoda.  I already have a schedule and the hotels in mind. 

My 2nd wish is to have a sturdy luggage that I could conveniently lug around anywhere and in any terrain with so much ease.  I am eyeing a Samsonite luggage for this very purpose.  Here are the models I like which I browsed through ShopBack and Samsonite.  

Clockwise from top-left: Samsonite Hyperflex 29' Spinner= 224.99 (addt’l 30%); Samsonite F'Lite GT 31" Spinner= $209.99;   Samsonite Omni PC 28" Spinner = $179.99; Samsonite Carbon1 DLX 28" Expandable Spinner= 159.99

My 3rd and 4th wish may be a bit on the techie side but they are still very much related to my dream of "creating beautiful and unforgettable memories" 

I am wishing for these items- Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11BY 2GB Intel Atom Z3735F Quad-core

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11BY 2GB Intel Atom Z3735F Quad-core 11.6"

and Digital Age AMD A4 6300 Computer v3.0 CPU Only Package through Lazada because of the big help it could give me when storing our travel memories and when I write about our adventures through my blog. I'm using an old desktop set which is already set for retirement.    

Digital Age AMD A4 6300 Computer v3.0 CPU Only Package

Lazada price:  
Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11BY 2GB Intel Atom Z3735F Quad-core ...₱ 9,999.00
Digital Age AMD A4 6300 Computer v3.0 CPU Only Package P9,545

Listing down my wishes already excites me, what more if I win any one of them!  It would delight me to no end winning Shopback’s Win a Wish contest and would serve as a great motivator in further pursuing my heart’s desires.
