lol yesterday we were over at my brother-in-law ( my hubby's brother) he showed us cellphones that he got on plan but he does not intend to use because he already have samsung s3, he was just after the sim.. Anyways, he was telling my husband to sell the phones - samsung pocket and an alcatel smart phone.. hubby was kidding around and telling him not to sell it and rather give it lol..and his wife was also saying yes why sell just give it and my hubby mentioned it will be my birthday today lol so he hand the smart phone to me! hahah to my delight he gave it.. hubby has ways of doing that hahaha.. but i know BIL does not mind actually, as well he really do not need the money then we stayed for the day, the wife brought some spring rolls too and it was a good day to spend the one day holiday.

That was a very good thing he did for you today. I am sure it would be nice to have that phone. I have the very cheapest phone the store had for sale.

Sometimes family is more important than money. It was a nice present and I hope it really made for a good birthday. From your story it sounds like your husband has a really nice and fun family. Enjoy.

Yes, it's an Alcatel Glory phone. :) Enjoy! Do make sure that you save your files to the memory card (there's a setting for it) because the default setting is to the sim - which eventually makes it very slow if you don't change the file saving locations.

Happy birthday jazel I believe receiving those kind of present makes us real excited about things. Good thing your husband has the ways to make you happy. My husband is somewhat like that. I'm wishing for a tablet where i could do myLot thing in mobile. I'm happy for you for having that one. Hope you have a good and happy birthday

I guess if we know how to handle relationships and be good, then good things will also come.

somehow being close to the family is quite helpful for us and they really do help us especially with my husband, their intentions are all good for us.. their family is quite stable and secure and they also want us to be that way too.

That's a pretty useful birthday gift! With a funny story as well. If I have an extra gadget as well and I am not needing the money that bad, I would rather give it to a family member as well. afterall, we can always buy another gadget, or earn the money, but family is important and will always be.
