GPB11: Simply Pie!

NOTE:  The Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (GPB11) series is a number of posts regarding merchants and sellers; and their unique and unusual creations, of which I had the utmost pleasure of discovering at Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (read a short introduction of my bazaar experience here.)  J

I've always held onto the addage that one should never shop on an empty stomach.  It makes you crave too much sugar, and as we all know, too much of a good sugary thing is bad for your health.

I had, however, unwittingly broken this golden rule and went to the Global Pinoy Bazaar with tummy rumbling big time.  One of the many things you forget to do in the course of your mommy responsibilities, I guess.  I've been focusing too much on the Little One that I had not enough time to grab a bite to eat before heading out.

But it was because of this jarring mistake that I was able to locate a great foodie find -- a Spinach, Feta and Sundried Tomatoes mini quiche from Simply Pie!

(NOTE: My apologies for not taking any of my own photos. There was simply no place to lay my quiche on and it was quite hard to take a shot of something I was holding on to. Add the fact that I was just too darn hungry and it looked for tempting already.  J)

Selling for Php40 a piece (350 for a box of 9 and 600 for 16), this small, unuassuming egg custard puff pasty filled with, as the name implies, spinach, feta and tomatoes packs a lot of punch.  So flavorful from that first bite to the last!

Aside from their line of delectable quiches, they also sell sweet and savory mini pies (Php525 to 600 for a box of 9 depending on the variant.)

Apple Baby!

I've been drooling over their Apple Baby!  Oh boy, you bet this will be one of the next things I'll buy from them soon.

They also have mini sweeties like their bestselling Nata Lychee Dream Puff Pie (Php350 to 575 for a box of 9 and 16, respectively.)

And yes, I'm actually kicking myself for not buying a whole box to take home.  L

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!  =)
