The car that blogging bought.

I’ve been planning about this for about 3 months now and I’m excited to get it done over with today. Got my student license (LTO) last week and started going to driving school since Monday (I swear I’ve never been in front of the steering wheel all my life). A simple handshake closed the deal this afternoon.

Now look at what blogging bought me:

Mitsubishi Lancer


Mitsubishi Lancer

It’s not new and I can’t afford one even if I wanted to. A second-hand car (Mitsubishi Lancer ’97) is the more logical step considering I haven’t driven one before and if ever I crash into a lamp post (knock on wood) and miraculously survive, it wouldn’t be that expensive a loss (for the car I mean).

She doesn’t have a name yet so suggestions are welcome.

    What have you done with your online earnings?

    There’s really money on the net, galingan lang sa paghahanap!
