May your coming year...


... be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
-- Neil Gaiman, 2001.

Thanks Budgette for sharing this quote. =)

Great Find from BagTag: Urban Straps






While braving the horde of people at the Mall of Asia, I encountered this gem: Urban Straps from BagTag. I’ve been trying to find customized bagtags for our luggage for the longest time which are distinctive, unique and personalized. These are just perfect and make great gifts for frequent flyers.

Production time normally takes about a week but if you really want to get your strap pronto, go to the Robinsons (Galleria) outlet and get it within the hour (or 1-2 day during peak seasons like Christmas).

The bagtags and urban straps are available at the following outlets:
· Robinsons (Galleria), 2nd Level near elevator entrance to Department Store
· SM Megamall, Building A, 2nd level near Nine West
· SM Mall of Asia, Main Mall South Wing, Ground Level near Ace Hardware
· Market! Market! 2nd Level, near Fashion Market entrance

Dayo: Win free movie passes c/o Click the City

The buzz is building around Dayo, the Philippines’ first all-digital full-length animated feature film. Dayo is a story about the magical adventure of an 11-year old kid named Bubuy who embarks on a journey to save his abducted grandparents from the land of Elementalia. Along the way, Bubuy meets a teen manananggal named Anna Manananggirl who helps him find the missing grandparents. With his new friend, Bubuy finds Elementalia—the magical land that hosts strange flora and fauna, and mystical creatures from Philippine mythology. The life-changing adventure transforms Bubuy from a timid, bullied kid to a strong, confident young man able to stand up for himself, to fight for his values, and to hold on to the things, and most importantly, to the people most important in his life.

It's a great film for kids of all ages and a must see during the MMFF season.

Clickthecity.com is now giving all Philippine residents a chance to win free movie passes to watch this groundbreaking movie. Just go to this page, answer the question and complete the form.

SM welcomes Balikbayans and Overseas Workers with a Homecoming Card

Christmas has always been a special time for Filipinos. It’s the season for reunions of families and friends. Each day, the international terminals are jam-packed with balikbayans and overseas workers coming home. The department stores, movie centers, and malls are filled with families doing some last minute shopping or enjoying quality time with loved ones.

In recognition of this, the SM Group is encouraging all returning overseas Filipinos to avail of the SM Homecoming Card from Dec 1-31, 2008. To avail of the card, just present your passport (original or photo copy), OWWA card or international drivers license and fill out a registration form at the nearest SM Advantage counter or SM Department Store.

Get a 5 percent discount for a minimum single receipt purchase from SM Dept, Ace Hardware, Baby Co., Kultura Filipino, Our Home, Sports Central, Surplus Store, and Toy Kingdom. Note that the discount is valid only on the same day you get your card. If you want to avail of the discount again, you may reapply the following week.

While the 5 percent discount is valid only on the date of issue, this card can be used to avail of other offers and surprises at participating SM establishments (movies, bowling, Storyland etc) when you present your card anytime from Dec 1-31.

... additional proof that at SM, they’ve got it all (and more) for YOU. =)

P.S. Did you know that SM North Edsa is now officially the 3rd largest mall in the world?

Tis the Season to be Jolly with Crocs

Whenever I pass by the Crocs store at Bonifacio High Street, I always see a huge horde of people gathered inside the store. I’ve always been curious about its appeal – quite frankly, I find some of the designs quite unattractive. That is, until I discovered that they actually have ballet flats. Woohoo – something I can actually wear to the office!

We finally succumbed last week to the Crocs’ siren song at the newly owned store in Greenbelt 5. And.... discovered an ongoing promo – some models are going for 30% off. Another bonus, if you buy 3 pairs, you get a free keychain. If you buy 5, then a cute camera (uses film only) is yours for free.

Start 2009 with a makeover - join Suesh's makeup workshop

Some people say that in times of recession, the (fast)food and beauty industries still do fairly well. Of course, bargain hunting and penny pinching is still the name of the game.

Rather than go to a salon every time there is a special occasion, why not learn how to put on make-up and do it yourself at home?

Suesh has recently released its schedule for make-up workshops in 1Q09.

Attendees will learn to maximize the use of makeup tools without overspending. Snacks and giveaways are included in the workshop fee. Call 0917-8942625 or 0922-6038087 for more details.

Online Seller? Use Paypal! Know Your Bank Code!



This post is a bit off-topic but I believe that it would be beneficial to PHBestDeals' contacts, many of whom are online merchants. =)

There are a myriad of options by which customers can pay for the goods we sell: direct deposit to specified bank accounts, G-cash, COD etc. For the past year, Paypal is an option which many sellers based in the Philippines are adding to their sites because it not only gives them the flexibility of accepting credit card payments but also opens the door to foreign buyers.

Key advantages:
1. As the world's number one online payment service, PayPal is the fastest way to open your doors to over 150 million member accounts worldwide. You can request a payment from anyone with an email address even if they do not have a PayPal account.
2. Low cost. No start-up or monthly fees, no cancellation fees, and no minimum payments. Lower transaction fees than other merchant accounts
3. Quick setup. Sign up and get started in minutes. No extra software or hardware needed
4. Security. As an industry leader in fraud prevention and risk management, PayPal has 60%-70% lower fraud loss rates than other global merchant accounts
5. Funds can be withdrawn directly to your bank account or credit card with a max processing time of 5-7 business days in the Philippines.

To sign up or learn more, click here.


Want to withdraw the money you received via Paypal? Is your bank account properly tagged to your PayPal account?

To do this, log in to PayPal, go to My Account > Profile > Add or Edit Bank Account then fill in the Bank Name, Account Number, and Bank Code. Do ensure that you add a bank account with the correct bank code .

Chef's Banquet at the Concourse
Level P1, Concourse Center Aisles
December 17-18, 2008
5PM-8PM

The Power Plant Mall holds a gustatory feast on the first three Wednesdays and Thursdays of December with the Chef’s Banquet at the Concourse.

Food aficionados will be welcomed to the Chef’s Banquet by a gastronomic buffet setup of appetizers and cocktails courtesy of nine participating restaurants of the Power Plant Mall. Those craving for the familiar taste of the Orient can choose from the Eastern Block’s Pho 24, Kaya, Kulinarya, Wild Ginger, and Zaifu. Meanwhile, representing the lineup of restaurants with cuisine from the Western Block are Café Mediterranean, Myron’s, Piazzo Pazzo, and Sugarhouse. All these restaurants each prepared three appetizers and a cocktail made especially for the event.

The Chef’s Banquet is no ordinary buffet because here, customers are free to mix appetizers and cocktails from the different restaurants and pay only for what they order. Highly-anticipated favorites to be savored at the said event are the Dak Bulgogi, Grarlax sampler, Samosas, Cigars, Dragon Rolls, Roast Australian Leg of Lamb, Fresh Shrimp Rolls, Zuppa Melone con Proscuitto e Basil, and Quichés. For those who still crave for more, they can also visit the participating restaurants’ main outlets found on the same floor as the event area.

A backdrop of laid-back luxury and jazz music, with furniture courtesy of Cebu-based Home Mavericks, completes this indulgent dining experience which only the Chef’s Banquet can offer.

Special Offer: Filipina Coffee Table Book


I love coffee table books. They have kept me company on numerous occasions while waiting for my dentist, helped start conversations while visiting a stranger's house and yes, given me ideas for photographs/crafts/gifts etc. You can tell a lot about a person when you see his/her collection of coffee table books. Is he a vintage car buff? Does she love modern art? Are they nationalistic?


Given that they are oversized and tend to be of heavy construction, coffee table books are items that you give as housewarming gifts or Christmas gifts. On my own personal wishlist are Terno, Hiyas and Filipino Style.


Filipina: A Tribute to the Filipino Woman is another beautifully designed book featuring over 200 photographs highlighting the elegance, determination, devotion, sensibility and individuality of the Filipina. Retailing at Amazon for $295, Proudly Filipina members will be able to buy the book for PHP1,500 for a limited time only. To join the online social network, please go to http://www.proudlyfilipina.com/. You may then pre-order the book at http://www.proudlyfilipina.com/content/filipina-tribute-filipino-woman.

A frequent flyer missing home? Avail of Smart's Plug N' Talk

This is a great service for OFWs and frequent fliers. Filipinos abroad can now call any landline or mobile number in the Philippines using the Internet at a low price. Smart Communications has just introduced its newest service which allows a subscriber from anywhere in the world to access the Smart network via the Internet and enjoy call rates for as low as P6.50 per minute and text messages for only P1.

Say goodbye to international roaming charges. With Plug ‘N Talk, Filipinos overseas can receive calls and text messages from relatives in the Philippines for free.

The Plug ‘N Talk kit will be sold for P1,800, which includes the Plug N’ Talk device, an earpiece and a free Smart Pinoy SIM. Note: For existing Smart users, SMART Plug N’ Talk works with all prepaid and postpaid SMART SIM cards like SMART Buddy, SMART Pinoy, SMART Gold, and SMART Infinity currently available in the market, except for SMART Gold with Multiline capabilities, SMART Kid and SMART Bro SIMs.

The Smart Plug ‘N Talk will be initially available at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 and the Mactan Cebu International Airport. Units are also available at the Smart Wireless Centers in SM Megamll, SM North Edsa, SM Southmall and SM Ermita.

For more information, click on this link.

Hey, it's a great pasalubong gift for relatives and friends based overseas. =)
Updated:
There are some countries with very strong anti-VOIP regulations (due to legal and revenue concerns) particularly in South America. Others such as India and some EU-members have places restrictions on its usages. I'm not certain as to how Plug-n-Talk will be impacted since this is a hybrid product. Because there are different regulations across different countries, for specific concerns I suggest that you contact Smart's Customer Service (*888) before buying a unit.
As a personal aside, I wonder why they're not available at the Ayala Ave. Head Office.
