finding extra money

Yippee! Its November and that means next month will be my annual holiday leave. Where else but my home country, the Philippines. Christmas is just different when you're home. I've been setting aside money to splurge for next month, not to mention the pasalubong and Christmas gifts for family and friends. Now this got me thinking on how to find extra money, at least to cover for my plane fare. I was thinking of bringing some stuff which is expensive back there like Billabong board shorts and sell them for a profit. Did this before so I know it works. But I want to try something new like bringing items back from the Philippines and sell them here in Australia. I have yet to research on items which sell here and those which could pass Customs. Mind you, Australia is very strict with quarantine and the entry of plant or animal products in their ports. Then the answer just dropped on my lap when a female co-worker asked me if I can bring jewelry on my return. She even wanted to give me the money now but told her to give it when I'm about to fly. This trading business is exciting and I hope it will result to a substantial profit. But even if it doesn't, the experience will leave very valuable lessons.
