"If I Were A Store, I Would Be Papemelroti!"

"If I were a store, I would be Papelmelroti!", that was what my friend Vanna wrote on her Facebook wall. I couldn't agree more! The store is a source of inspiration for many. 


Papemelroti is a store that sells stationaries, figurines, crafted jewelry, clocks, and anything that spurs positivism and self-esteem. I love the fact that each time I visit the store, I always come out happier than I was before. Not only that, the price range is affordable enough for everybody. Oh! It's a great deal!


After seeing Vanna's posts about the beloved store, I found out that they recently opened a branch in Glorietta. So I checked it out.

I was so happy to have found the store. Well, you couldn't miss it after seeing that really big sign. Upon following the direction, I was greeted by inspiring quotes on the wall. Awww... and some of them hit me bigtime! Here they are...






And finally... the store... It just has that vintage feel. Time stopped here for me, and the aura of peace overwhelmed me. Well, who wouldn't? The place was full of positive vibes!


Take a look at some of great finds! Photo by Vanna.

I stayed in the store for far longer than I expected. It was hard for me to decide which one to buy, but I chose these two items: a poster and a notepad. Simple ones, I know. However, they carry important that I need to get through life.




The poster had short quotes on Things to Always Remember. There are a bunch of them so I will write a separate post of it in the near future. On the notepad is a saying: The time to be happy is here, the place to be happy is now -Robert Ingersoll. 


Before I left the store, I remembered Vanna and her photos. I would like to share them with you. Here are Vanna's Papemelroti items. Seeing them brings sparkle to my eyes. I love how simplicity and creativity are presented in Papemelroti's cards as seen below.

Wouldn't it be great if everyone could bring inspiration to others too? I would love to be like that. And after visiting Papemelroti and remembering Vanna, I too would like to shout, "If I were store, I would be Papemelroti!".

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
