The Big Garment Sale (Nov 29-Dec 1)

The Big Garment Sale

The Great Bulacan Sale. November 29, Thursday to December 2, Sunday. We usually would go on Thursday/ Friday so that the crowd is still manageable. We do most of the Christmas Shopping here for the ina-anaks. But I think we will have to pass this time because Rache is still recuperating.

During the last sale, they issued membership cards already which serves as the gate pass. No need for invites. If you are not registered yet, just bring one valid ID. For inquiries, pls call 2996061.

All the clothes that are not sold here are sent to their Off Price Stores in Ortigas/ Makati/ Malate.

Light Symphonies and ROX @ Boni High Street

Light Symphonies @ Boni High Street-26

Here is another Christmas gimmick you can do with your kids. Bonifacio High Street has this light and sounds show every 30 minutes from 7pm to 10pm. The Christmas lights around High Street and the different lanterns light up and dances to the tune of Christmas songs. There are two areas: the first area is near ROX side and it lights up at 7pm. While the second area , which is in the activity area around the spider rock, lights up 30 minutes after. It switches back and forth between those two areas every 30 minutes until 12 midnight.

Here is one suggestion on how to execute this gimmick with your kids...

Pia Y Damaso's Philippine Colonial Cuisine?

Pia Y Damaso-29

Starters, Salads and Sandwiches | Main Courses, Pasta, Noodles & Rice | Dessert & Pastries, Beverages | Coffee, Tea and Chocolate

Bambi Sy-Gobio of Kookie & Luscious expanded her business into restaurant/ cafe with the soft opening of Restaurante Pia y Damaso @ Greenbelt 5. Pia y Damaso specializes on colonial Philippine cuisine inspired by Noli Me Tangere. According to Bambi, the cuisine is called "comido antigo" and it is probably what Damaso ate, Maria Clara was accustomed to, and what Ibarra and the other young accused subversives found comfort in." (I'm really not sure what this means)

Just a brief review of Noli: Kapitan Tiyago married Pia Alba but for 6 years they were not blessed with a baby. They approached Padre Damaso who suggested that they dance in Obando in front of their three patron saints: St. Pascal Baylon, St. Claire and Our Lady of Salambao. Miraculously, Pia concieved a baby. She died while giving birth to Maria Clara who was named after the Obando patron saints. Rumor has it that Padre Damaso was the father of Maria Clara.

After eating in John and Yoko, or Fish Out of Water or Chateau 1771 in Greenbelt 5, go to Pia Y Damaso for desserts! It has a veranda that overlooks the Greenbelt Church. This would be perfect during the Christmas season. BTW, La Maison Brasserie is also open in Greenbelt 5 but we already had a trauma with how lousy the food was when we celebrated my birthday in Trinoma @ La Maison.

The Rebirth of Chateau 1771 @ Greenbelt 5

Chateau 1771-4 Chateau 1771-19
Congratulations to Chateau 1771 for a successful dry run over the weekend! They invited friends and family of the owners last weekend to try out Chateau 1771 for FREE while they fine tune the operation of their kitchen. We got a slot for last Sunday's brunch @ Chateau 1771 and we fell in love with the interiors, the food, and warm service. I personally love the high ceiling which gives it a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

Loyal followers of Chateau 1771 in El Pueblo, Ortigas will be happy to know that their favorite resto has a new home at the ground floor of Greenbelt 5. They have the best location and is very close to the sacred grounds of the Greenbelt Church. You can hear mass in the morning and have Sunday Brunch with family or friends after. Chateau 1771's grand opening is today, November 28.

We love our Sanuk Sandals!!

Chateau 1771-32

We LOVE our Sanuk Sandals! Sanuk is a thai name for Pursuit of Happiness. It is definitely better than Crocs in terms of comfortability. It is a perfect Christmas gift for surfer dudes if you can find a nice design in Glorietta. Otherwise, visit their website and ask somebody from the US to buy Sanuk Sandals. Their website is soooo cool and if you read the philosophy of the company, they are soooo cool as well!

This is our pasalubong from my brother Lorenz from the US. Thank you cool bro!!
