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.

Cute.
Booth of Manila Precious Moments. Awww...

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.

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
