My Christmas Shopping Site up soon

To make your Christmas Shopping easier, I will create 2 new sites that
are extremely user friendly. Watch out! I'll post the link
on Nov 1.

I will also start accepting appointments for meet-ups (delivery of
orders) this November. Meet-up points and schedules to be
announced.  But this will most probably be in Ortigas only.

Trick or treat?

She won best in costume (along with 5 others)! She's a little over a year old raw. Wawa naman, walang kamuwang-muwang. And her pumpkin bag is soooo tiny, the candies won't fit in there!

3 reasons why I have never gone trick or treating:
1. I don't live in Ayala Alabang.
2. Hindi pa uso ang Trick or Treat sa Pilipinas when i was a kid.
3. If there ever was Trick or Treat when I was a kid, my parents wouldn't have let me join because we almost had no neighbors. Meaning, i would have had to walk a certain number of miles to the next house. (Exagg naman ako. hehe).

Since I missed out on what I believe is an essential part of childhood, I resolved to witness this event first hand this year. (Though there was Trick or Treat last year, I missed it because I was still in college. Meaning, I spent the best part of October completing requirements for delinquent subjects. Typical me.)

While kids received loads of candies in their pumpkin shaped loot bags, I too got my hakot of goodies: cool pictures of cute kids in freaky halloween costume!

Presenting, my loot for Halloween 2006...

Start your Christmas shopping today!

61 days 'til Christmas...

and you wanna play Santa.

Not enough moolah?

Not to worry!

Get great gifts for the people on your Nice list without breaking the bank.

Read on to find cheap yet tasteful gifts your loved ones will treasure

for many Christmases to come.

Excellent gift suggestions for Christmas (SAVE):

1. Cellphone charms - Being cheap can be chic. Not enough
moolah to give something special to your barkada? Why not give
them funky and unique cellphone charms! Before you roll your eyes
and dismiss this as a blah gift, check out the Four Seasons pic in the
What's Brewing folder for samples of my charms, or the Mini Havies
folder for cute flipflop cellphone charms. If personalized stuff
are your thing, you may want the alphabet cellphone charms. At
only P30 each for each alphabet cell charm, where else can you find a
cheaper, chic-er, more unique gift?

2. Mini havies earrings - Can't give away the real thing?
Opt for these teeny weeny versions instead! At P70 to P80 each,
these cute flipflop earrings are cheap enough for
"bulk-gift-giving". And your friends/titas/cousins won't find
these anywhere else!

Excellent gift suggestions for Christmas (SPLURGE):

1. Personalized Message Bracelet (P200 for 8 letters) - Ditch the
boring mugs or tasteless tshirt - give your friends a unique trinket
this holiday season. This way, you'll be sure she won't be
getting the same thing from someone else! See this link for
details: http://beadlady.multiply.com/photos/photo/25/3

2. Set of Personalized Coasters - Give mom an unusual gift she won't
find in the malls! I can make image-transfer coasters for
her. (Sold in sets of four). See the October issue of Real
Living magazine for the photo, or click here
