Free Comic Book Day at Fully Booked!!!! (May 22, 2010)

I've always had a hard time looking for appropriate gifts for my hubby.  Even when we were still dating, I'd always end up giving him something he won't use.  Oh, he appreciates everything I give (its the thought that counts anyway, right?), but I knew I always just missed the mark.

So last March, after aimlessly walking around Mall of Asia, I chanced upon The Death of Superman graphic novel.  I oohed and aahhhed.  Inspiration came and I knew instantly it was what he would love.

When his birthday came, my gift, so lovingly wrapped and tied with string, I gave with a big smile on my face.  Oh he loved it all right!  Couldn't wait to read it.  Mentioned his friend had all 3 books....

3 books?  I only saw one!!!  Apparrently this graphic novel came in a 3-part series!!!  Argghh!!!!

And this is why I am anxiously waiting Fully Booked's Free Comic Book day on May 22, 2010.

Aside from giving away free comic books (starts at 10 a.m. so better be there really early!), all graphic novels will be 20% off (cash basis only).

Maybe i'll get it right this time.  And so the quest continues...  =)

  2. Hi Jacky!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
