2015 Heatwave Summer Bazaar and End of Summer Clearance Sale

Yes, I know that I have been gone for a long time now and I know that I’m still not going to be able to update this anytime soon because of all of the work that I have to do. BOOHOO. Life of a corporate slave but I know you guys know that I mean. Just wanted to share this with you. 🙂

Heat Wave Summer Bazaar

I know summer is just beginning and I’m already informing you about the end of summer. Haha. Weird. 😛 But oh well.

Hop you guys are having better days than I am! 🙂 Shopping Experience

Last December 5, 2014, I posted a giveaway contest from Admittedly though, I wasn’t really able to try out the shopping experience here so I decided to give it a shot.

When you sign up for, you will receive an email giving you a gift certificate worth PHP 300 and this would really entice you to buy something. Although I didn’t really order immediately because I got so busy with work and everything else. I only got to order last January 14, 2015.

So, what did I order?

  • Momax iPower Go+ 11200 mAH External Battery Pack


Which I only got for PHP 2,499 as compared to the original price of PHP 3750.

  • Capdase Lightning Cable


Which I only got for PHP 1,050.

  • Capdase Pico G2 Dual USB Car Charger


Which I only got for PHP 399 instead of the original price of PHP 500.


As soon as I ordered, I already got an email confirmation from them. However, the following day, I got a text message from them that 1.) The Momax iPower Go+ 11200 mAH External Batter Pack color Gold wasn’t available and asked me to change the color. And 2.) The Capdase Lightning Cable that I ordered isn’t available so they wanted it to be replaced with a Momax Lightning cable.

Both of which are fine with me but then again, I was thinking if it were another person, I’m pretty sure that they would be upset about this.

Six days after, I already got my package which was YAY!

All of the items were in good condition and I’m really happy about my purchases. Thanks again for this,! 🙂

Anyway, here’s my honest to goodness constructive feedback.

What I like about
– The items that they are selling are of good quality because they sell good brands. This is especially important if you are buying electronic stuff.

Things that needs to improve on:
– Update your site as to what stuff you really have – stocks and all. I would think that your user interface should be connected with your inventory system.
– Make sure that the description of the items in your system is updated. For instance, check this out. The title says its lightning cable but the description says Micro USB.
– Also, once you order, you will get a confirmation email which says you can email, call or chat to confirm your order (which I think is totally absurd) but the email information isn’t in the email. 😛 If you think that there is really a NEED for people to confirm their order then better to inform them when they purchase that they actually HAVE to confirm their order and in the email, place a link that would allow the buyer to confirm the order. REMEMBER: making the buying experience for a person as easy as possible is the way to go.

So, am I going to purchase again from
Yes, definitely. I think I have enough patience to go through all of these things just in case it pops up again. And working in the world of technology, I kind of understand where they are coming from but then again, other people WON’T.

What about you? Would you be willing to go through this to purchase something from

My Shopping Encounter

Remember last December 30? I posted my Top 6 finds from So I went ahead and ordered the Pilot Hi-Tec C Gel Ink Pen – 0.33 – in basic colors which actually costs PHP 1587 on the site.


I actually placed the order on January 7, 2015 and received the following bill. 1

If you notice, the amount is lower than what I posted last December 30, which I would think should be attributed on the conversion rate of USD to PHP. Remember, I think this site is pulling data from somewhere and then converting it to PHP.

Just a reminder, when you buy from, you have to be aware that there are extra costs such as International Shipping and Local Shipping. For you for you to get a discount, you can share on Facebook and Twitter which will give you a 3% and a 2% discount. *Sayang din yun.* If I were you guys, you should take advantage of that. Remember, every peso counts. J

One the same date, I receive an Order Confirmation email which told me that the estimated delivery date of my item is on January 28, 2015. 2

Around 21 days, 3 weeks. You SHOULD expect this especially that they are really shipping your item from abroad.

Next update I got was on January 22 (15 days after) telling me that they’re going to delivery my items in the next 2 days. 3

Interestingly enough, I received the item on a Saturday – January 24, 2015. I was actually expecting it today, but VOILA! 🙂

Oh, m gonna have soo much fun with you! Thanks @galleonph! 🙂

So, yay! I’m happy!

Last step… Today, I received an email from them that my order is complete already!

Thank you,! 🙂

So, will I order again? Yes, definitely. But here are the things that you should remember:


  • You can get to buy stuff from the US without having to have a whole bulk of to be shipped because of the shipping cost
  • Items will be delivered straight to your doorstep, you wont have to pick it up from some point. Saves you the hassle.
  • You are well informed about the status of your order, so you are not kept in the dark as to where your order is.


  • You will have to pay extra for the international shipping cost and local shipping cost
  • It would take a really long time for the items to get to you

So, it’s really up to you? What do you think about this? Is this something that you would like to try out?

Top 10 Longchamp Loves: Time to Spring Ahead

It’s spring/summer 2015 already! And I’m soo excited. This is my favorite time of the year because all of the collections of most brands are really colorful which is soo my style. So starting of with Longchamp. My favorite bag of all time! Why? Beccause it’s lightweight and roomy and I just can stuff everything inside. Yes, I’m an addict, a hoarder. But hey, all of my bags are used up. 😛

#1 – Longchamp Cross Body Bag Deep Night


(Approximately around PHP 25,000)

I have developed an affinity for cross body bags recently. I just noticed that it’s easier to lug them around. The only downside is that you can’t stuff a lot of things inside as opposed to the Le Pliage.

#2 – Longchmp Handbag Le Pliage Cuir


(approximately around PHP 19,000)

This is the leather version of the Le Pliage. Before, I didn’t like leather but right now, I think I should have a black leather bag. And if given a choice (and a chance), I would definitely get this.

#3 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Heritage


(approximately around PHp 38,000)

Yes, this is more expensive than the Le Pliage Cuir for a good reason though. Look at it, it looks soo structured and formal. And very classic and chic. This is definitely for the career woman. Yes, I’d love to have this too. 😛

#4 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Neo


(approximately around PHP 6,000)

I have a confession to make. I already have this in blue. But this color is soooo nice and classy and it fits day dresses. I really, really fell in love with this style.

#5 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Neo Fantasie


(approximately around PHP 7,000)

Of course, you have to have the special kind! ME wants this!

#6 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Sarah Morris Limited Edition


(approximately around PHP 109,000)

WHOA! Too much for a bag. Will definitely NOT buy this. But it looks really good, right?

#7 – Longchamp Handbag Mariniere


(approximately around PHP 7,000)

This looks soo good for the beach. And I have the perfect beach dress that goes well with it. 😛

#8 – Longchamp Handbag Surf the City


(approximately around PHP 7,000)

I love blue. I actually noticed that most of my bags are blue because I consider it a neutral color. 😛

#9 – Longchamp Medium Tote Bag Nautique


(approximately around PHP 12,000)

Just to break the Le Pliage craze. 😛

#10 – Longchamp Tote Bag Le Pliage Cage Aux Oiseaux


(approximately around PHP 5,000)

Because this makes me happy. Ang Longchamp makes me happy. 😛

What about you? What are your picks for this season? 🙂
