Daiso Japan UP Town Center is Now Open

Shoppers line up at the counter to pay at Daiso Japan UP Town Center

I had a blast shopping at Daiso Japan UP Town Center. Yes, the Japanese retail store offering very affordable items is now open this side of Quezon City. It’s the company’s 60th store in the Philippines, and it opened with a bang via a flash sale. Shoppers came in droves and the place is full to the brim, it’s almost impossible to move around. But I can’t help but plow through the aisles because of interesting finds that I see at every turn. I think it’s the first time I felt giddy again with shopping. Who wouldn’t? Interesting items were sold for only P60, P160, and P260 only! And with the free ice cream for everyone, it’s a sweet treat after all the shopping and lining up. To be quite honest, I haven’t been to a Daiso Japan store before. Yes, the visit to Daiso Japan UP Town Center was ...

Lamido is My Latest Discovery for Online Buying and Selling

Lamido Philippines Website

I love online shopping as much as I do with online selling. Before online shopping boomed in the Philippines, I was already bidding and buying second hand gadgets. Then I became involved in online selling. The e-commerce landscape in the country continues to evolve, with some sites still existing while others folding up or getting bought by big businesses. Lately, Lamido is my latest discovery for online buying and selling. Not another e-commerce website you might say. Lamido is not just another e-commerce platform. For starters, Rocket Internet is behind this venture, the same company behind Lazada and Zalora. What’s different though is that Lamido Philippines offers a wide range of products from budding entrepreneurs who is somehow overpowered by big companies with their branded products. This means more great deals to find. When I first discovered the website and started browsing, I was actually overwhelmed with all the items ...

Discounts Galore at the SM City Sta. Mesa 3-Day Sale

SM City Sta Mesa 3-Day Sale

I was present on the first day of the SM City Sta. Mesa 3-Day Sale which got me drooling with a lot of stuff on discounts. I really wanted to be at the mall early to avail the additional 10% discount for those shopping in the first 2 hours of the sale. I missed it unfortunately as I was caught in heavy traffic on my way. I arrived almost lunchtime, so I decided to eat. I was with fellow blogger Ted Claudio of WazzUp Philippines and we decided to have a quick lunch at Wendy’s. I was so excited to see that the Salad Bar is back and decided to take the challenge of building a salad tower of my own. We learned that the record to beat is 8-inches, which I failed to beat having stacked about 3-inches of salad on the plate. Well, what the heck. I still ...
