Nagoya Autumn Sale!

It's autumn here in Japan and the shops all around are on Sale! Well, here in Nagoya, I just don't know in Tokyo or in other parts of the country. We also went to Nagashima Outlet Store last last weekend and they are also on sale. There are lots of stores there and lots of items to choose from. We will be going back there before the sale season ends which is I guess, Nov. 6.

Anyway, because I went out late today, I was only able to buy groceries and passed by Old Navy shop. I checked if they are also on sale and yes, almost everything were sold at a discounted price. Most of the jackets/winter clothes are 1000 yen less, so for jackets priced at 2,990 YEN, now, you can buy them at 1900 YEN. Too bad it's already late, I wasn't able to check all the items, but I was able to buy 3 jackets at a discounted price. I bought one for myself and the other two are for my sisters back at home in the Philippines. I will give it to them as pasalubong/Christmas present when I go home this December. 

I checked Old Navy/GAP site online and surprise! Online items are also on sale! 


Enjoy shopping!

Bacon Wrapped Enoki Mushroom

Yesterday was a Lazy Saturday, I woke up at 12noon, prepared my food, ate and sleep again. I didn't go out of the condo unit where I stay. Saturday is my rest day (literally) after a 5-day work and lots of overtime. People here in Japan are very workaholic and I am now one of them. So, my Saturdays were mostly spent in my bed. But it seems that my Saturday laziness wanted to extend up until Sunday because I woke up late, ate and I just stayed in my bed again. But then I remembered, the weekend is almost over and I wasn't able to do anything but sleep. So I get out of my bed, took a bath and went to Sakae for some walk. I passed by a supermarket so I decided to buy some supplies for the condo.

Good thing I decided to go out and buy supplies because typhoon Vongfong is coming tomorrow here in Nagoya. I bought foods for the whole week. I passed by some Enoki mushrooms and I got excited because I can only eat it in Japanese restaurants back in the Philippines. I still have 2 packs of bacon in my fridge so I bought a pack of Enoki mushrooms. I also bought a pack of bean sprouts and other veggies. Because I am excited to cook the Enoki mushrooms, I cooked it right away when I got home. And here it is.... Bacon wrapped Enoki mushrooms!

Uncooked Bacon wrapped Enoki mushrooms
Just remove the roots, wash with tap water and wrap in bacon. Fry in a pan (don't overcook because the mushrooms will get soggy). 

I also cooked other veggies that I bought. I fried some tofu. Sauteed the bean sprouts and tofu, added salt and pepper. I fried the remaining bacon and tossed in some broccoli and dinner solved!

Love and Relationship: Exactly my Thoughts

I can't help but post this excerpt from a blog that was sent to me by my friend. I just wanna share my thoughts as I can really relate to her.

There was this part of her story that I can really relate to and here it goes...
"You see, I can’t even decipher the thought of me being in commitment; I am not yet ready. I am afraid of meeting your family and friends I have tons of insecurities — enough to make me feel that I don’t deserve you. I hope you are getting what I mean here. By the time I meet you, maybe I’ll be equipped enough to commit myself to someone else. Someone for whom all the insecurities won’t matter, because I’ll be more secure by then, I hope. "

I remember what my friend always tell me when I said those lines. "You're already ___ (age) and you're still afraid?! When will you be ready?!" Knowing all our friends were already getting married and having their own children, here I am still not yet ready for a relationship. You think it's kinda weird?

I thought all along I am the only one who has this kind of feeling when it comes to relationships. I also found out that there are also a lot of girls who are in the same situation as I do. Now I know, I am still a normal person, whew, it's been years! haha!

Forever 21 End of Season Sale!!!

Hello there! Forever 21 is having its End of Season Sale! My friends and I were not excited, really, so we went to the newest F21 branch located at SM Aura on its first day of sale. Yes we are not really excited and we don't want to buy anything. Believe me...  :D 


I am actually saving money for the renovation of our house but I can't help it because of the low prices. Their end of season sale is up to 50% off and what's more interesting is their Skinny Jeans' sale worth 555 pesos only. Good buy right?! And oh, I found a blouse worth 209 pesos only... :) I actually bought one last year (my first pair of pants from F21) and it became my favorite pair of pants from then on, so I subscribed to F21's facebook page so I will get updated on their latest sales and promos. :) 

For Forever 21 fanatics, their End of Season Sale runs from June 28 to July 14, 2013 - ALL BRANCHES.

Bomb Threats Here and There - Manila Philippines

Just these past few days, several bomb threats were reported which scares people and forces evacuation from the different affected buildings. These bomb threats caused panic among employees and students and interrupt company and school operations.





The first bomb threat that was reported came from Bonifacio Global City in Taguig last June 7, 2013 where 2 buildings were evacuated.

The second one is in Nangka Elementary school in Marikina last June 25, 2013. It was said that a woman spread the news about the bomb inside the school. Of course upon hearing the news, parents rushed in to fetch their children. This prompts the school to suspend its classes until everything was cleared out. 

Third is in UP Ayala Technohub in Quezon City, same day, June 25, wherein almost 1000 employees were affected and more than 3 buildings were evacuated.

The last one as of this writing happened in 1800 Building in Eastwood City, Libis also in Quezon City yesterday June 27, wherein it is said that a K-9 dog is the one who sensed a possible explosive device inside a suspicious black backpack. 

According to the news, none were seen in those places where bomb threats were reported. The question is, who is/are the one/s behind all these bomb threats? What is the reason why they are doing this? What do they want? I am just hoping that it will not continue as it affects and scares many people.

Let's just hope and pray that this will not happen again.

To Buy or Not to Buy: Benefits Style Salon's Digiperm or Rebond + Hair Treatment Promo


I have seen this promo by Benefits Salon posted in Ensogo earlier this evening when I checked my mail. I think it's a good time to avail of the promo since I am also planning of changing my hair style. By the way, I got my hair permed (digital) last September 2011 and the curls were getting loose. I also had it trimmed months ago so the curls really loosen up. And now, I want to go back to straight hair and I guess this offer came at the right time. I wanted to avail their Rebond + Hair Treatment offer but my mom and my friends told me that my hair still looks good. 

The Ensogo promo seems to be a good deal because it only costs 1,599php. That is 74% savings from the original price of 6,100php. So, to buy or not to buy? Well, I still have 2 more days to think about it. The promo ends in 2 days so if any of you are interested check the details below.
