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 ...

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 ...

GQ International – Helping Filipinos Dress Up Naturally

GQ International - Gray Jacket over Light Colored Shirt and Black Pants

Three ladies in our family – my grandmother, my auntie and my mom – are all dressmakers. My mom went further by studying dressmaking and moved to become the master cutter of famous designers. I literally grew up with fashion as my mom would make me clothes that are fashion forward. Eventually, I learned to dress up naturally. I am aware that it is important to dress for success. When I started working, I love wearing long sleeved button down shirts with necktie on. My contemporaries hate dressing up and would look forward to casual Fridays. I don’t, because I was never the fashion-challenged type. Of course I understand their predicament. Learning to wear the right color, even the necktie that would go well to an ensemble can be difficult if you really want to pull it off and look polished. Today’s generation are very fortunate as the Philippines has ...
