My National Bookstore Warehouse Sale Finds!

Have you gone to the National Bookstore Warehouse Sale yet? I went on the first day and got quite a few finds. I was there with my daughter before 10am and a line had already formed. It felt great to be there to be one of the first customers to go through the books they had on sale. It turns out that this sale had the items from the last National Bookstore sale and they’re trying to finish up these stocks to accommodate new stocks for their summer sale. The books on sale were already discounted from as low as...

My Very Own Kobo Glo

I have been avidly reading since I can’t even remember. My love for reading spans the bedroom, the dining table, the living room, yes even the bathroom, and all  places where I can get just even a few minutes of reading. I’ve held a book in my hand at least once a day since forever.  I have a book collection that has increased and decreased through time for want of space. Today, reading seems to be a lost art. Many still do it,  I’m not discounting that fact but who nowadays can you say really loves to read a...

First National Bookstore Warehouse Sale for 2014!

The first National Bookstore Warehouse Sale for 2014 is here! I got plenty of deals during the last sale that I’m extremely looking forward to this. I’m hoping that there will be even further discounts as the holidays have just come and gone and there are usually end of year sales around this time. My last visit at the National Bookstore Warehouse Sale yielded me books as much as 70% off and plenty of stationery supplies. I was focused on getting presents for the holidays but this time around I’ll be looking for items for myself! The sale will be from January 15-19 from 10am-7pm at the 4th Floor of National Book Store Quezon Avenue cor. Sct. Borromeo and Panay...

Villa Alfredos Resort in Pampanga

We had an enjoyable stay at a resort in Pampanga. My husband’s sister and her family were here for a month long holiday from the states. They hail from Sasmuan, Pampanga where you can also get the best traditional bibingka by the way! Villa Alfredos is located in San Fernando, Pampanga and is a resort smack dab in the city. Upon entering the resort you instantly are brought into a place of lush gardens. It’s quite large having 6 themed swimming pools, children’s wading pool, 2 jacuzzis, aviary and marine life aquarium, and a mini zoo. They have hotel...
