How Manifested: ..well, read on!
THE UNEXPECTED 'EXTRA' CHEQUE
Hubby was at work, called me to look out for the mails. He's expecting a cheque for some consulting work he did for a personal contact last month. I got that mail, with the cheque as expected. It was generous but I've seen this before so I stuffed it back into the envelope. Then something slipped out. Another cheque! It was for $816. Hmm..what's that for?
THE PUZZLING CONVERSATION
When hubby came home, he didn't looked like he was expecting 2 cheques.
You see, I handed him the envelope with the bigger amount cheque..but I've hidden the extra one, hehe..
We were in the car after dropping Nadia off to her extra class.
Me: "What if, there is another cheque, could I have my Electric Bike?"
Hubby: (puzzled. obviously) "What cheque? Why?"
Me: "Nothing, just asking....(pause)..but IF so, could I?"
Hubby: (looked at me) "Hmm..but why? What cheque?"
Me: "Just asking. Just answer."
Hubby: " I don't know, I can't promise. Can't promise on something which is not there."
Me: "I'm not asking you to promise Anything. I'm just saying 'what if?' That's all."
Hubby: "I don't know. Don't want you to be disappointed."
Can't stand this any longer. So I said, "alright, alright! I found another cheque in the envelope. What is that for?"
Hubby: "Hmm? ..Why didn't you tell me?"
Me: (grinning) "Heee....so can we got to the Bike Shop now?" (grinning)
Hubby turned the car and drove to...the Bike Shop! Just like that!
WHY THERE WERE 2 CHEQUES
Hubby did 2 consulting jobs for a contact. A 2day and a 1day. As the amount on the 1st cheque was rather generous, more than we expected, we thought it was for both the 2 jobs he did. Well, apparently the 1st cheque was only for the 1st job. The 'extra' cheque was for the 2nd job. Wow!
THE STRANGE TWISTS
Strange Twist No.1:
I opened up the mail with the cheque on 24th March. But if you take a real close look at the cheque, notice that it was dated 10th March? THAT was the day I actually made the decision to Visualize my Bike, Opened up this Blog, Posted Pictures on it and Announce on Twitter my Visualization Challenge 101 to my Family, Friends & Followers! Hubby's contact must have gotten some telepathy thingy tuned right into my 'Request to the Universe' and he picked up on it right away!
Strange Twist No.2:
The model of Electric Bike that I've kind of finalised on, 2 days before I got it, costs $850.
The amount on the 'extra' cheque was $816.
That is like, I practically got just what I needed!
THE BIKE, OF COURSE!
Haha, I got Nadia blindfolded just before the bike shop owner delivered it to our place that evening. She was at her extra class when me and hubby went to the shop remember? So she didn't know.
Look how thrilled Nadia was when she saw the Bike!
That's me! Posing with my New Toy!
I love how the motor/battery/whatever, looks like. The seat is installed with a Security Alarm. When I switch it on, anyone who touches or sits on the seat will activate the alarm. Isn't that just fabulous.
It has a Cycling Speed of 25-28km/hr. Just nice for me. Cool lights, very bright. Speed button at the handle. A white basket. Battery charges for 6hr and can be used for a couple hrs of continuous usage (I think..I forgot what the shop said) before the next charge.
They gave me this red helmet as a gift.
WHY IS THE BIKE IN THE BEDROOM?
1. It's brand new and much too precious for me to leave it outside the house, of course!
2. It was in the living room at first, My Showcase. But...Farah, my 1yr old, can't stop using it as her latest obstacle course to perfect her climbing craze..dangerous..
3. So there it goes, in the bedroom..sigh..
PROOF OF PURCHASE
Hubby got some extras for me; mirror on the right handlebar (for me to do my make-up he said!). Some tape bands thingy (don't ask me, it's hubby's). With delivery charge of $15, it all totals $890. Hubby paid a $90 deposit and we settled the balance of $800 when they delivered it.
IT ALL STILL FEELS SO SURREAL TO ME but PHEW!
I can get used to it though..Thank you to all my Friends & Followers for all your Support & Encouragement!
I will be off the computer till Sunday. When I come back on Monday, I'll start posting on my other Manifestations that I mentioned in my very 1st post. And hmm..I'll probably think up another Visualization Challenge too. Kind of addictive..
