Shopaholics at MNG

23 06 2009

I didn’t go straight home last Friday as earlier planned.  Last minute, I was invited to have dinner by a friend.  Since I so wanted to eat pizza that day, I said “yes” but I insisted that we just have dinner, pizza at that, no extra strolling. 

We were considering Domino’s Pizza in Makati Avenue but since we were not sure about the parking area, my friend suggested that we go to Rockwell instead.  I was quite happy co’z I know I’ll be able to drop by Royce’.

Since we were not hungry yet, we checked out some stores first.  My friend spotted Mango with the signage “Sale up to 50%” and she suggested that we get inside hoping to get some good items.  I told her that the last time I checked out Mango during sale, I wasn’t successful co’z the sale had long been running.  As we got in, you can see the excited ladies rummaging through the shelves and racks.  Seemed like the sale has just started and I was right.  There were still a lot of nice items co’z the sale just started a day before.  So went the impulse buyer in me, again…

I just wanted a nice top but I was able to get a nice-fitting jeans, too, for a discounted price of 50%.  I almost got 2 blouses but I thought it was so impractical as I already got myself a black one last weekend aside from the 3 or 4 I took home during the first week sale at Festival Mall last month.  As for my friend, she got herself a cute blazer/jacket and a pair of jeans, too.  She also wanted another top but she had previous purchases from Memo a few weeks ago.  So for lesser guilt….

For the girls and other ladies out there, you can still catch the sale as there’s no definite end date yet.


I gotta taste this Royce’ chocolate

23 12 2008


During my browsing, I chanced upon a few posts that made mention of this another outstanding foodie find which originated from Hokkaido, Japan.  One wrote that it is called the Rolls Royce of chocolates.  I wish I had read them first before I went to Hongkong last year and Singapore last October.  The good thing is… it’s now locally available according to one blog writer.  Royce’ flagship store, carrying almost the complete line of products including the Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip, located at the 3/F Power Plant Mall in Rockwell opened last December 6 . 

I was in Rockwell last week, on the same floor, with some colleagues for my birthday treat.  Had I known about Royce’ earlier, I would have gotten myself these little blocks of  Nama choco delights. 

 Will it replace my Truffettes de France? 

 Can hardly wait.  I’m coming there soon!
