When I started working as a Virtual Assistant (mid-November 2008), my bedroom had also became my workplace. And since our bedrooms are at the second floor, my parents had to holler my name "Leaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!" from downstairs whenever they need my help or just to call me at dinner time.
It was almost Christmas, Pops and Inang were going to the mall to buy groceries. Pops asked me what Christmas gift I wanted. "Doorbell," I said. "Why a doorbell?" Pops asked me. "So that you don't have to shout whenever you call me while I'm working in my room."
Guess what? I got my wish! :-)
