I've been a blogger since late 2005, primarily as a means to express my emotions through a safe, non-violent manner. Apparently, bonking your boss on the head is equal to an aggravated assault charge. Go figure!
Ever since deciding to blog for the public quite recently, I've visited a lot of blogs for inspiration. I've seen the best and the worst. Some inspiring, some just plain weird, but all provide good sources of information made readily available to the public.
So without further ado, I present my Top Picks for Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010:
I've always loved shopping at Clipper. You know, that store that keeps sprouting up in the major malls here in the Philippines? The one that sells cute novelty items (think Mario, Princess Toadstool, etc.)
We'll like everyone else, I'm definitely hooked on their merchandise. A little pricey but still, a good place to shop for unusual gift items.
I'm not exactly what you consider a Divisoria/Baclaran girl. Sure, I've been to both places a number of times; the former whenever the need to shop for lower priced items consumes me and the latter whenever I had to accompany an aunt for one reason or another.
With that in mind, I knew I would never miss the chance to go shopping there again for some of our wedding paraphernalia.
Yup. You've seen it in the major broadsheets. You've probably heard it from a friend. Heck! They even have a big billboard dedicated to it along Edsa.
RCBC Bankard has indeed partnered with famous European-based clothing store, Mango in a special credit card made for fashionistas out there.
Early records show that a special frozen dessert concoction, slightly similar to what we now know as ice cream, was being served in ancient Rome and Egypt. Made from ice and snow brought down from the mountain tops and preserved below ground, this dish was so popular that even Nero couldn't miss a banquet without this being served in between courses.
Fast forward to the present, shops serving different kinds of frozen treats are found everywhere. No climbing up the mountains for this girl.
One of those is Gelatissimo, an Australian company selling gelato.
THE SPLURGE: Guess Woman's Blarney platform sandals (USD139.95 or around Php6,500)
For women wishing to add a little height to their stature, this pair of Guess Blarney platform sandals is one of the best solutions out there.
A lot of Japanese-inspired restaurants have been popping out in the Metro recently -- Teriyaki Boy and Tokyo Tokyo just to name a few -- all trying to make Japanese fare palatable to the Filipino tongue.
I, for one, prefer this very small and still undiscovered Japanese resto simply known as Tanabe.
