Weekend Story: More Christmas Shopping (Divisoria, S&R, and Greenhills)

Last weekend was terrific. I joined family members in doing more shopping for Christmas. Time to share our blessings with more people dear to us!

On Saturday, I was with Mame and my cousin Jun to buy some Christmas presents at Divisoria. Our feet got soaked in the rain getting in and out of 168 Mall but the trip (and the shopping) was worth it.

Weekend Story: At Home in Manila

The hubby and I have been missing our Bacoor home already. It’s been weeks that we haven’t visited it. I don’t know if the few plants in our plant box are still alive or not. I don’t know how our lone Malunggay tree is coping to the “dry” situation (though I have a feeling it will continue to thrive).

On a related note, our office clothes are of the same set. We just wash them during weekends for use in the next work week. Sorry, TMI. I don’t know if my officemates are already noticing my clothes, but what the heck. Haha. The good news is, we are going home tonight. Wohoo!

Weekend Story: Two Christmas Get-Togethers, A Visit to St. Pio Shrine and A Quick Trip to Divisoria

Last weekend was epic. I had lots of fun and laughter and shared stories and happy memories with the people that matter to me. How I wish this long holiday break won’t end so I’d have the luxury of time to meet up with more people!

On Saturday, I attended two Christmas get-togethers — one with my college friends and the other with my former office colleagues. Both were fun and memorable. I really had a great time.

Budget Shopping for Christmas

As much as I would like to indulge in shopping for those in my Christmas gift list, I can’t. I have a very limited budget because of some financial setbacks we encountered this year. But I promised myself I’ll make sure my gifts will be apt and meaningful.

I only have two places in mind for my Christmas shopping: Divisoria and Landmark. These two shopping places are tried and tested. I can’t wait to go to both. I’m actually reading shopping and lifestyle blogs to get more budget shopping ideas. I heard sterling silver jewelry is hot these days so I might get some for my two sisters. Good thing they don’t read my blog so they won’t know about this. Haha.

Divisoria Shopping

My Christmas shopping isn’t complete without the requisite trip to Divisoria to do some, well, shopping of course. Yesterday morning, my mom and I trooped to the so-called “bargain shopping mecca.” The roads leading to the place was in heavy traffic. The usual 10-minute ride lasted almost an hour, can you believe?

When we got to Divisoria, the roads to the malls there were filled with goods and people (yes, there were lots of goods scattered on the road sold by street vendors). It was hard to shop inside the two malls we visited (168 and 999) but the finds were worth the money and energy we spent. We found some great deals and went home very happy and satisfied.
