Hay... Daiso...  Why do you have so many interesting stuff to buy?  Why just recently the Husband discovered this in one of your shelves.

A bag of Umaiwa Takoyaki corn snack rings

To be perfectly honest, I don't usually buy food stuff from our locally based Daiso stores, mainly because I could not understand the Japanese characters in each package.  For all I know, I would have been eating a totally gross item with me none the wiser (thinking about it, it might actually be a nice gastronomic adventure too, don't you think?)

But I digress.  These here are Umaiwa Takoyaki snack rings, a type of puffy corn snack with a Takoyaki twist.

Ringed snack

Tastes just like a Takoyaki ball would at first bite, with a slight hint of sweetness.  It's tasty, but leaves a really fishy smell on the fingers. 

Would it replace the real thing?  Probably not, but it would most probably keep you satisfied til your next Takoyaki fix.

Available in Daiso Singapore shops island-wide for S$2.00 (Php66.00*).

  1. I ashamed to admit it, but I have never eaten Takoyaki balls! I always see them in the malls, but have never ventured to try them. Looks yummy, and is a quick fix for those hunger pangs.

  2. What you don't know won't kill you. :-) Nah just kidding. Hehe.

    I also don't buy stuffs from local Daiso, not because I'm afraid of Japanese letters, but because I'm a penny-pincher. ;-)

  3. Daiso talaga! haha madami na din Korean stores dito sa pinas and same feeling, parang hindi mo maintindihan kung ano ano yun pero parang masarap haha :D *katakawan lang*

  4. I love Daiso! :D Whenever I visit their stores, there's no way I'd leave without buying anything. I haven't seen these takoyaki snack rings in Daiso stores here in Manila, but I'll look for it on my next trip~ :)

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!  =)
