Fab Finds at the World Bazaar Festival 2012

Have you done your Christmas shopping already? If not, there are a lot of options to choose from. There is Divisoria if you really want to get value for your money. However, you need to be courageous enough to brave the overwhelming crowd there. Streets full of people, the sun's heat, and the never ending stalls of goods will break you. If you find Divisoria a hassle, you can go to various bazaars, instead. Prices there are a little too high compared to Divisoria but you won't be in a place of discomfort. 

Last weekend, my family and I checked out what's in store at the World Bazaar Festival in World Trade Center. The venue is air-conditioned and has good lighting. You need to purchase a ticket worth PhP50 to enter. There is still a crowd but it is small in comparison to the kind you will see in Divisoria.  Of course, prices vary from cheap to expensive.

Booths selling Christmas decorations greet you the moment you enter the main tent. 





The first thing we did when we got there was to eat! There is an area dedicated to food! It was hard to decide which ones to eat. Furthermore, some stalls offer free taste.

Familiar brands like Sbarro is there to serve.

Yum! This gotta be good...

More stalls for you to choose.

Korean Donuts as desserts at stall F60

Or have your own gelato.

Plus! You get serenaded as you eat. 
Then it was time to go around the bazaar for shopping! We first went around the booths selling packed food and pastries. Most of them offer free taste! On sale were noodles, rice, snacks, wine, polvoron, hopia, cupcakes, and a lot more. Uh.. did we just have dinner?

This is my fab find of all! Frubbas dried fruit at P38 per piece. Stall 240.
After the food stalls, I roamed around the place to find items and toys that were to my liking...

Caribbean Flip Flops start at PhP180. 

Hello Kitty Watches worth PhP250.

Cheap stuffed toys. Stall 429

Hello Kitty stuffed toys at PhP100.

Figurines for sale. Prices available upon request.

Love this Belle figurine. :)

Figurines for your Christmas Tree. 
That completes my bazaar journey for the day. The place was so huge that I wasn't able to visit all the booths. So far, I'm very satisfied with what I saw. Oh! If ever you would want to go there, bring a handy tote bag with you. Plastic bags are banned in Pasay City, so the stalls wrap your stuff in paper bags without a handle. 

World Bazaar Festival is until December 23, 2012. Schedule: Monday to Thursday 12NN-10PM; Friday to Sunday 10AM to 12MN.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
