11th World Bazaar Festival “Da Best and Pasko ng Pilipino”

One thing I love living in the city is the ampleness of BAZAARS especially during the holiday season!  There’s almost a particular bazaar for every occasion and they are everywhere.  Here’s one exciting and huge bazaar that I want to share with everyone so better hurry up and catch this!

The World Bazaar Festival at the World Trade Center in Pasay City dubbed as “Da Best and Pasko ng Pilipino” running from December 2 to 18, 2011This is a partnership between Worldbex Services International and ABS-CBN for the benefit of the ABS-CBN Foundation.  Here are the best reasons why you should not miss this one!

Affordable Admission Fee at PhP50.00 per head only.
Touted as the longest and grandest Christmas bazaar in Manila.
Open from 12:00NN to 10:00PM from Mondays to Thursdays and from 10:00AM to 12:00 MN from Fridays to Sundays.

You can choose from over 600 booths of fabulous finds, everything from accessories, toys, giftware, Christmas decors, books, musical products, housewares, handcrafts, novelties, clothing and almost everything!

Best “bargain” prices on all items especially on Christmas decorations. Here's a photo of my friend and her find, "Santa with a Christmas Tree" that we got for PhP 1,000.00 only (50% off).  Just put some tiny twinkling lights around the cute Christmas tree and voila! You have an instant Christmas décor.

They have celebrity booths (Kapamilya stars) selling a number of products and shoppers will have the chance to meet and greet them.

It features various show launches, musical shows, fashion shows and a celebrity pavilion.

Kids can write their Christmas wishes in the Make A Wish card and hang them in the giant 30-foot Christmas tree located at the lobby. Every Friday, a card will be chosen from the giant Christmas tree and the lucky kid will have his or her special request granted by the World Bazaar Festival organizers.
“Woobie”, the official World Bazaar Festival mascot will serve as the Santa Claus for the event and will be giving away toys, appliances and showcases to chosen families as an early Christmas treat.

The World Bazaar Festival will also showcase an Appliance and Gadgets Craze that will run from December 13-15 at the WTC East Wing Tent.

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Tomorrow Is Not Promised

I was going around my stuff that I packed two years ago, back in the time when I decided that I’m done with the corporate world.  I realized that I did not check back to this box-load of stuff since I packed it when I exited that world of mine. The sad thing is that, I’m digging this box because I’m looking for a document that will support a stupid system that halted something that I had worked so hard for a couple of weeks.  I was feeling upset and frustrated while doing the digging. I realized there are lots of things in this box that I really really love.  They are of no financial values.  Just the silly stuff that I can’t take away so I just keep them.  As I picked and tousled things, I came across some small notebooks where I used to write anything that I can think of  at the moment. One of the small notebooks is a favorite since college days.  It is covered with my stamp collections and in it are my favorite quotations, prose, phrases and some poems that I personally wrote.
