TeamManila Lifestyle Warehouse Sale Part 2 Review

I've been meaning to buy hubby a few shirts at the TeamManila sale last weekend, but unfortunately, I missed it.  Thankfully though, they decided to have another one this weekend and I for one, was definitely not going to make the same mistake again.

TeamManila is known for their artistic take on everyday Filipino culture.  From the mundane jeepney to their iconic Rizal in shades, this brand has long been a favorite of those wishing to show off some Pinoy pride.

Upon arrival, I was a little surprised at the set-up:

Yes folks, their warehouse is a well...residential house, apparently located in a well-known subdivision.  They even have Lito Atienza as a neighbor!  Didn't see him there though.  If you didn't know better, you'd just might think this was an ordinary garage sale.

We arrived around a few minutes before 9 in the morning and already the place was slowly filling up.  Shirts are placed inside plastic crates so you'll have to really dig in to find sizes and designs you'd like.  Stupid me though I came in a dress (I was on my way home ok!) but it still didn't stop me from getting down and dirty.  =D

All items were being sold at either 30, 50 or 70% discount  They even posted a price list to prevent repetitious questions.  Very nice.

After 2 hours of digging, I came home with the following merchandise.

Shirts above were originally priced at Php550, 
was able to purchase 1 for Php165 and the other 2 for Php275 each

Ninoy shirt was selling for Php385, down 30%% from the original Php550 price.  The other 2 shirts were sold for Php275 and Php164.92, down 50 and 70% from the original selling price, respectively.

Pouch for Php120, down 70% from the original Php400 selling price

A few of my gripes: those crates are just too unorganized.  Shirts for men and women were mixed and you'd have to open the wrapping just just to check which was which. 

Shirt sizes and designs were also piled in the same way.  I guess they did try to organize the mess at first.  However in the ensuing chaos, the shirts might have just simply gotten mixed up.

I was also kinda hoping they'd sell some of their bags, but no dice.  They did have a few pouches on display but with very limited designs.

BEWARE OF THE PHP100 BIN!  This I emphasize highly.  When I was already lined up at the cashier, sales personnel suddenly came out with a Php100 bin.  Rushed on over just to find that most of the items inside were damaged.  Some had holes, some were frayed.  My suggestion, be satisfied with the 30 to 50% discounted items.  They have the same designs anyway.

All in all, I'd say it was a very satisfying shopping experience.  =) 

P.S. Did I also mention they accept credit cards?  =)

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!  =)
