The Average Jane Goes to the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011

I've always been fascinated with unique finds.  Who wouldn't, anyway?  It's fresh.  It's new.  It's something you just don't see everyday.

One eventually gets tired of shopping at malls where the same items are seen and can be purchased day-in and day-out.  The only thing going for them is price.  Don't get me wrong, though.  I love going to SM.  Landmark and Market! Market! are also places I must visit from time to time. 

But what truly keeps my creative juices going and my excitement boiling are trips to tiangges that feature unusual, one-of-a-kind creations.  Thankfully, Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar is one of them!

Pinoy power!

Waking up early on a gray Saturday, the family and I happily trooped to the Rockwell tent for one grand shopping experience. 

Shopping bliss...

And since we were such early birds, we were able to scout through a lot of the offerings and made some very interesting purchases.  Woohooo!!!  J

My GPB '11 loot

Out of the 15 people I still had to give Christmas gifts to, I was able to cross out only 2, since shamefully, a lot (all right, almost ALL!  Hehehe!) of the stuff I bought will be used by little old me.  Shameful, yes, but dang it!  I deserve to reward myself from time-to-time.  J

Congratulations again, Yabang Pinoy for another successful event!  Can't wait for next year's!


Stay tuned for my future posts where I will be showing you in detail the items I absolutely adored at the bazaar.  Makes for very good gift ideas.  J


  1. oh i just missed this. will there be another one? :)

  2. I agree with you:) You deserved to reward yourself.

    btw, i hate going o bazaar..ang daming mabibili ubusan tlga ng pera...hahaha:)

    enjoy your next bazaar visit:)

  3. Hello Tin!!!

    Thank you for supporting the Global Pinoy Bazaar.
    Totally agree with you that there are really good finds in bazaars specially with this one since featured products were made with 100% Pinoy love and pride.

    Too bad I missed to show you and Tyler around last Saturday morning. But then again, going in the morning was an excellent choice since you can still move comfortably in your own pace. :)Hope you enjoy your treasures.

    Until the next Global Pinoy Bazaar!

    Ipagpatuloy ang pagtangkilik sa konsepto, produkto, at serbisyong Pinoy! Yeebaahh!

  10. @Sumi Go: I haven't been to a SuperSale bazaar before. Although I was supposed to go to one when they had it at WTC. Maybe next time. =)

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!  =)
