So I stayed in the big metro this weekend to have some much needed rest and a little retail therapy. Plus, I needed to clean my apartment. It doesn’t look like a home of a woman already. LOL!
Anyway, so there were a lot of sale that happened this weekend. I think almost all of the big malls went on sale and no matter how many they are and how strategically located they are, there was still heavy traffic jam all over the big metro. Yesterday, I decided to see what the sale is all about in Glorietta. I haven’t been to Glorietta in what seems like ages! I didn’t even know that SM Makati has been renovated and that the supermarket is now at the basement while the space where it used to occupy now houses Uniqlo and H&M and another store in between that I never really bothered checking.
I decided to treat myself to my usual hang out place whenever I am in that vicinity – UCC Park Cafe. 😀 Typical of me, I ordered their houseblend coffee and decided to get the mango crepe which, later on, I realized that it is actually too much for just moi to finish off. I finished the wrap and the mango slices while half of the ice cream melted on the plate. 🙁
I didn’t really have anything planned to buy just yet so I ended up roaming around Glorietta to Landmark to SM Makati for several hours. There were so many people it was really hard to check out what was on sale in any of the shops. At the end of the day, I went home with little Z’s diapers, a couple of long pants and short pants, and a polo that I know my little boy will really look handsome in. (Now I need to hunt denim pants to pair it with… 😛 ). Oh yeah, I forgot to find something for me. LOL! Nevermind, as long as I was able to buy something for the little boy, I am happy. I’ll shop for myself when I get the chance (and the budget).
Sunday, I decided to visit Megamall. I am only a few blocks away but I rarely get to roam around this mall now, not like I used to. They have items already on sale but I think (if I remember correctly) they will have another sale this weekend. I bought little Z’s push walker, finally deciding to get Little Footprints’ push walker (photo and review – I hope – to follow). I have been hunting a good push walker for the little boy and so far, this was the only one that I found that can be converted into an activity table. I also bought some red and gold Christmas balls because I decided to put up the Christmas tree.
It took me about thirty minutes to look for the ornaments that I kept from last year’s decorations. For some reason, I couldn’t remember where I placed it and I had to open all of the storage boxes that I have in the house before finally checking the small box on one of the bottom shelves in my living room. And all along I thought I kept it in the storage box seat that I have. Yeeesh!
So here is how it turned out after I added the ornaments:
It looks weird, doesn’t it? It’s got too many balls, me thinks. I don’t know. I think I no longer know how to decorate. Nevertheless, watching the lights blink earlier was actually quite relaxing. Hopefully, putting up the tree will bring some holiday cheer to my lonesome (and almost clean) apartment and some good vibes and great news and all the goodness and greatness for December.
To December, please be good to me. I’ve tried to be good the whole year. 🙂
Anybody else still about to put up their Christmas decorations? How did it go?
