PHP 700 Million richer

News broke out earlier this evening that someone hit the jackpot. The Lotto jackpot of PHP700 million has finally gone to someone, and s/he is the lone winner.

I don’t really bet on the Lotto, but in the past few weeks, I’ve spent a few bucks for a bet. The most I won was P150 for three numbers, and that was thrilling enough for me. To actually win PHP700… I can’t even begin to fathom how much money that is. Back when it was still PHP100 million, I had my fantasies of what to do with the money. At seven times more than that, geez, I can easily get fifty million and go buy several condo units or houses.

I’d definitely resign from work, pack my bags and travel to all the places I just once dreamed of. I don’t think I’ll buying much things (except for real estate, toys, books and gadgets), but I’ll definitely do some investing. I’d make provisions for my family, find a business and live a life of leisure.

I’ll also be buying a new iPod touch for Den, and a battery for her laptop. That’s all she wants haha.

So guess whoever was singing “I wanna be a billionaire, so freaking bad” finally got their wish… well, a few hundred million shy of it anyway. 🙂
