The First Customer a.k.a Buena Mano

Wednesday, November 30, 2005

I woke up very early today hoping to be one of the early birds. As I arrived, thinking that I was late already (I was told that the sale starts at 10am, I got there at 944am) I got the shock of my life when I stepped out of the elevator at the 36th Floor of the Petron Mega Plaza. The first thing I saw was the banner stand that mentioned a Buy1 Take1 promo. Then the next thing I saw was blue boxes stacked up and side by side. As I walked to the entrance, I was bewildered to see that my mom and I were the only ones there. There was this other person, she was stacking the shoe boxes and arranging them properly. I asked her if the sale has already started and she replied that she's just fixing the stuffs so that when her bosses arrive, the sale will start. We jokingly asked her if we could take a peek since no one was there, she smiled and agreed. And so my mom and I started to open the shoe boxes and 'usi' the designs of the shoes. I was very disappointed with the selection, and so was my mom! The sizes were all so big! I'm a size 7 (I thought that was BIG na!) the sizes there were mostly size 8's 9's and 10's. So in short, wala kaming size! Since we were already there, we went around the place and looked into every single stack. Hoping to find a nice pair. I was able to find one purple slip-on, I was lucky because there was only one box in my size!! I grabbed it and held on to it (Just in case may makakuha.. maiinis ako) 30minutes after my friend Selene arrived. She was shocked to see that there were only 3 people inside the place! The area was really small it was about 3m x 4m. Maliit talaga! One of the organizers arrived at about 1130am, and since I got na the pair that I liked.. I was customer number 1!! I was the first one the organizer made a receipt to!! And whilst paying, she asked for my name. When she heard it, she said na it sounded familiar, she asked if I frequent the GirlTalk message boards, I said yes. As it turns out, she bought an item from me before.. (what it was, hindi ko na maalala!!) We had a common friend as well, si Jake a.k.a. Georgia!! Haha..

I had fun naman, but was quite disappointed because of the selection of the shoes! Amix told me that they'll have another sale next year! I can't wait!!!

Thanks Jake, for the heads up!!
Thanks Mommy and Selene for accompanying me!!
Thanks Amix, for being so nice!!

Schu & Revlon Sale

Tuesday, November 29, 2005

S H O E S... one of my weaknesses, well actually I'm not a compulsive and impulsive shopper. I reason with myself whenever I buy something. But when I can't get the image of the item off my head for a day or two.. I NEED to go and get it, ASAP. My motto when it comes to shopping is 'If it's for me, it's for me' The item will be ON STOCK if I'm meant to have it, if not, then I guess not!!??

A friend of mine sent me an email that... SCHU & REVLON will have a sale tomorrow (11/30) until thursday (12/01) at the Petron Mega Plaza. They'll be offering shoes at 70% off!! Can you believe that?? I mean 50% off is already a great deal, but man.. 70% OFF?? That's a steal!

I'm psych-ing myself up for the sale tomorrow, as I plan to go there early. As in before it starts! (So as not to be disappointed when the shoe that I like doesn't come in my size anymore) I'm planning to hoard a lot of shoes this time. (ala-Imelda Marcos)

This, I think will be my early christmas gift to myself (and the haircut and color that I'll be getting this Saturday - hopefully!)

Wish me luck!!


P.S. Thanks Jake for the heads up!! Mwah!!!!

Blogging 101

Saturday, November 26, 2005

I know.... It's been kind of around for a while, and to be honest, I didn't actually 'get' what it really meant and understand what it's supposed to be. And now, here I am blogging... (oh no! Is this really me?! - I know Kim's gonna be smiling when she reads this.. whatever?! Haha!!)

Thanks to bny (yes, bny! thanks.. ) because his blog of when Cubie (thanks to Cubie as well! Kasi it's because of you that we all met up!) was here, started it all. Well, actually.. I've written some sort of blog/s.. but they were all 'saved as draft' Never occured to me to publish them (- but then, I just did!! Congrats to me!!)

I have a feeling that I'll be addicted to this 'blog-ing' thing more.

Theraputic nga raw diba?! Then therapy it is!!!!
