Yes! I finally enrolled Noah at theย Jollibee Kids Club Talent Camp 2014. ย I went to Jollibee Pioneer Center to see if there was still a slot and good thing they admitted my son even at the last minute. (I swear I love that branch.) The manager kindly accepted our application and Noah will start tomorrow. I can’t wait!

SM Aura Premier

sm aura premierFacebook and Twitter, even my Instagram, are abuzz with SM’s latest mall: SM Aura Premier. The first time I heard about the mall was a couple of months ago when a friend told me it will be something like Power Plant. Okay. So it’s gonna be a high-end mall? Maybe.

SM even managed to fly in Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City. I know a lot of women who got excited that she’s coming but I’m not one of them. The only Carrie I want to see is AnnaSophia Robb. Hehe.

I plan on visiting next week. Not this opening weekend although I want to bring my mommy there. She’s always been Misis SM I think she’d love to visit while she’s here in the Philippines.

I checked the SM Aura Premier (SM City Taguig) Facebook and here are some photos:

Unboxing the May 2013 BDJ Box

The May BDJ Box finally arrived last Sunday, Mother’s Day.

I really felt weird taking photos of beauty products as I am used to unboxing gadgets. I cannot say I was as excited because I could sense my husband looking at me while I was doing it. Haha! It’s not enough that I’m shopping online and now this, I’m taking unboxing photos. ๐Ÿ˜€

Box is smaller than I imagined. I think an iPad Mini could fit inside.

I’m excited to use the Garnier products because I’ve been experiencing some kind of problems on my face–BREAKOUT to the highest level. The worst ever. Hopefully, Garnier will work. We’ll see…

BDJ Box May 2013

UPDATE:ย Unboxing the May 2013 BDJ Box

BDJ Box May 2013
BDJ Box May 2013

I’m excited to receive my first ever BDJ Box.I have joined the hundreds of women who signed up for a beauty subscription box by Belle de Jour. Yup, the same girls who brought us the uber chic Belle de Jour planner.

I have heard of the BDJ Box last year and was surprised to know it isn’t the first in the country. There’s also Glamour Box and Salad Box.ย  I will try these two soon.

I actually forgot about the May 2013 BDJ Box but I recently got an e-mail reminder from the bellas. I ordered and paid for the P480 beauty box last March and paying was such a breeze via Chinabank online and Dragonpay. Sadly, the April box was sold out already so I’m lined up for the May loot.

I’ve been seeing ‘Unboxing’ posts so I can’t wait to receive my own box and find out what the Beauty Ministry has prepared for me. I don’t know if I’ll feel the same way as opening a gadget or home appliance but it’s always fun to do unboxing posts. Haha! (I can imagine my husband shaking his head..)

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out BDJ Box HERE.

Anthology Shoes Sale

I’ve been meaning to buy a pair from Anthology Shoes but I found them a bit pricey. P3,000+ for a pair is too much but they use real leather so I guess it’s worth the price.

Just recently, the shoe brand relaunched its website The site now offers online shopping.

I registered right away and “window-shopped”. I’m not sure if the Size 9 Verona would fit me so I tried a pair first at The Ramp Crossings over the weekend. I know size could be different but I finally ordered a pair this afternoon.

Green Verona by Anthology

Price is marked down to P895. I don’t have a green pair yet so I thought this would be nice. What I like about this is that material is genuine snake skin. You know I’m a sucker for real leather so this is a winner for me.

I can’t wait to use the shoes and see for myself the much-talked about cushioned leather insole and Anthology rubber sole.

Site says delivery is within 4 to 7 days (tagal!) but I’m willing to wait. Ordering was a breeze as I paid via PayPal but I don’t like that shipping fee is P150. That’s expensive since courier is Xend but Anthology said the shoes will be coming from Rizal which is considered a province. I thought of buying a few more pairs on Sale but PHP 150 per item delivery charge is required. I wish they would allow pick-up from their outlets soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Verona won’t be my first and only pair from Anthology. I find the Melbourne, Mayfair, and Everyday Anthology very pretty and practical. Maybe next month. It’s shoe shopping season for me. I just bought 3 pairs last month and haven’t even used them yet. Hinay-hinay muna. Haha! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blow Up Babies

Last Saturday, my sister-in-law treated Noah to a photo shoot at Blow Up Babies in Serendra. It wasn’t a first for Noah as we took him to The Picture Company in Rockwell when he was only five months old.

It was a fun pictorial even if coaching Noah was quite a challenge. He was jumping and running around because of excitement. But after a while, he became a bit shy perhaps realizing that all eyes were on him.

I was a stage mother taking behind-the-scene photos while my husband directed Noah’s moves– also a stage father. Noah had four sets: Cowboy, Rock Star, Cars, and Family.

I don’t have the prints and files yet but here are the outtakes:

The shoot lasted about 40 minutes while the selection of photos took longer. We have yet to claim the prints this coming Friday. I can’t wait to show you all the photos!

Shopping at Mega Bangna Bangkok Thailand

It’s been more than a month since I last posted here. Life happened. Yet again. Haha. Christmas Rush has extended until this month. It’s February and I still feel stressed. Stressed but in a very good way.

I don’t know where and how to start there are just too many things to share. I shall start posting photos here from the albums saved on my desktop. I am in the process of backing up and decluttering my files (and our stuff too) so here goes… ๐Ÿ˜€

Mega Bangna

It’s Thailand’s SM MOA. It’s the biggest mall in Bangkok today. I was there during the week it first opened back in May 2012. Last November, I finally got to bring my husband and son together with my mom. First stop was IKEA for lunch and some shopping. I bought a lot of stuff at IKEA for home and other people but nothing for me.

I visited another Cath Kidston store and I was overwhelmed with the items but mostly with the price. Hehe. I didn’t buy anything because by the time I got to the store, I was already feeling guilty spending about 4,000 Baht (around P6,000) in IKEA alone. I had to stop myself from grabbing something and bringing out my credit card. Husband was with me so I was too careful. Haha!

Enough of the kwento, photos na lang. ๐Ÿ˜€
