New Bed, New Bed Sheets

We have a new bed for our Manila home arriving this weekend. I bought it from one of the furniture shops right under the LRT-Jose Abad Santos Station. If you’re looking for furnishings priced way lower than what they actually cost at SM but with the same quality, that is the place to go.

The bed I bought is a double-decker bed made of steel and comes with two Uratex foams. I got it for P8,000 only. It’s scheduled for delivery this Sunday and we can’t wait to see it. I also plan to buy new bed sheets to pair with the new bed. I’m pretty sure Divisoria or Quiapo has lots of them. Easy.

The Start of Christmas Shopping

My Christmas shopping has started and so has my wallet’s draining off its contents. Rockwell Powerplant Mall is not my kind of place to shop (pricey is a mild word!). Yesterday, we were there to watch Breaking Dawn Part 1 only. (It was the movie date I promised to my sister eons ago.) I, however, ended up buying two items in the mall: a pair of shoes from Payless and a wallet from Charles and Keith.

If I’d have free time this week, I’d go to Divisoria or Greenhills already to buy Christmas presents. I’m particularly itching to visit the night market at Divisoria because normally, that is where I get nice items at dirt-cheap prices! I miss the crowd there (minus the pickpocketers, of course). And the noise and the many goods waiting to be bought. I simply love Divisoria!

Wedding Favors

With our church wedding having been moved to an earlier date next year, it is a must that we push thru our plans more swiftly and surely. Wedding planning is a Herculean task but I see it more as a challenge that needs to be won than merely a job that needs to be over and done with. I won’t let time constraints ruin it and dampen our spirits.

Wedding favors are just one of the things that we’re brainstorming about. We’re still undecided on what small tokens to give our guests. Since we both love to eat, why not give something edible like chocolates or cupcakes? Or something that can be kept for posterity’s sake like custom coins or figurine displays? There are tons of ideas found online but it seems it’s quite hard to choose at the moment.

DIY Fringe Necklace

I had some free time last night and used it by doing something creative. I made a DIY fringe necklace using only four materials: old silver chain, scrap denim fabric, beads and black thread. I’m so happy it turned out really nice and even got some compliments from my workmates this morning! Yes, I made it last night and wore it to work today (excited much). Haha.

It’s not so photogenic but I’m telling you it’s gorgeous in the flesh. Haha. I wanna make more of this in the future. My only problem is I don’t get to have as much free time as I’d like these days. I also want to buy more materials in Quiapo or in Divisoria so the next time I make accessories, I won’t be limited to the scrap/recycled materials I have at home.

Weekend Round-Up

It’s Monday already and yet I’m still on weekend mode. Why do weekends come and go so fast? I always feel like I don’t get to do as much things as I’d like to do during weekends. Like last weekend, for instance.

On Saturday, I was joined by the fiancee and his parents to visit my parents in Cavite and pay for the door and window screens we had installed. Goodbye house flies and mosquitoes, now you can no longer get inside our house! *insert evil laugh here*
