Garrett Popcorn Shops in Singapore

I usually associate popcorn with movies.  Whether it was a riveting cartoon or a sappy local comedy, my movie-going experience just isn't complete without those popped, and oftentimes burnt, pieces of corn kernels.

Back in the days (I feel so old!), popcorn usually came in 3 flavors: plain salted, buttered or cheese (the 3rd one being my most favovite.)  But now, we see a prolifiration of "gourmet" popcorn shops invading the market.  One of those offering these here in Singapore is Garrett Popcorn Shops.

Opened in 1949 in Chicago, USA, Garrett Popcorn Shops sell delicious gourmet air popped popcorn mixed in with a special blend of flavors made from secret family recipes (is it just me or is it beginning to sound like KFC?)

Here in Singapore, flavors offered include Plain, Buttery, CheeseCorn, CaramelCrisp, and The Chicago Mix (made up of a combination of CheeseCorn and CaramelCrisp.)  Prices range from S$4 (Php130*) to 300+ (Php9,900*) depending on the bag/gallon size and flavor.  Sizes range from small bags to 6.5 gallon tins.

Hubby loves their CaramelCrisp flavor.  Not too sweet and kernels are popped to perfection (no hard unpopped pieces here, folks.)

Just look at all those popped kernels generously coated with caramel...yummy!  And believe me, every single one of those things come as soaked as these.


The Chicago Mix is the best seller.  Salty and sweet at the same time, it's truly addicting. 


Popcorn from Garrett's is truly a taste sensation.

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!  =)
