Chris-Carl Stuffed Toys from Divisoria

Divisoria never fails to amaze me.  It's the place to be whenever you need cheap toys, supplies and knickknacks.  Cheap does, however, come with a price (pun intended), and most often than not, one finds that quality is often compromised in the quest of saving a few bucks.

There are, however, a few exceptions.  Stuffed toys from Chris-Carl are one of those.

What really caught my eye was their uncanny similarity to Forever Friends bears.  But unlike the latter which usually only comes in light brown palettes, Chris-Carl's comes in really rich colors one doesn't usually find in stuffed bears.

It's like the physical characteristics of a Forever Friends bear mingled with the rich colors of a Ty beanie baby.  Cute!

Oh!  And did I mention they're all locally made?

Larger Chris-Carl bears sell for Php75.  Already comes with the plastic case.  Smaller ones (like the white one pictured below) sell for Php100 for 3 pieces.


Chris-Carl stuffed toys also offer bigger and smaller bears than the ones pictured.  They also have other stuffed animal toys other than bears.

Don't they make great gifts and souvenirs?  J

  1. i was never fond of divisoria, even for christmas gift shopping:-(. the few times i was there i ended up feeling i didn't get my money's worth.

  2. I'm usually more picky when it comes to buying at Divisoria stalls since, yes, most of the time they are really not made to last. But I get a lot of my craft supplied there especialy when going really huge DIY projects that require a lot of raw material. =)

    @michymichymoo: It does plus it doesn't cheap. =)

  3. @Christian | Lakad Pilipinas: Lalo na malapit na Christmas. Hehehe! =)

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!  =)
