Bic Bic's Reality

today, my good friend bic-bic discovered, less than a few days before leaving for the philippines for good on sunday, that her bank account has been closed and all the money in it wired to the philippines. all her money to the point that she has none left for shopping but for the bond money from her landlady amounting to more than A$500. she was upset upon learning from her bank of the erroneous transfer and it took a while for her to be comforted in knowing that her money is not lost after all. it's in safer hands even.  perhaps it's just the thought of not being able to do as she pleases, with the amount she expected to have. i would say that it's really our expectations that disappoint us, not the reality waiting to be acknowledged.
