I Heart H&M


For a simple reason that it is not overpriced and the quality is really great. Most of their clothes are not made in China. Most clothes I bought from them are from Portugal, India and etc.

I visited H&M in San Diego, LA and New York City . I don't like the H&M in Plaza Bonita, San Diego. Thanks to my ever reliable friends and cousins that always bring me to top of the list shopping malls. My friend brought me last year in Americana, Glendale. They said its the new mall in the area and H&M store is big there. Yahoo! As my friend say it - kakabaliw sa daming mabibili! (makes you go crazy because there's a lot  to buy). And its true! no wonder why we are friends... I went crazy as well! haha! 

The Americana Mall is really beautiful. Oh ya! I'll just write a review about the malls I visited in California. :) Since I was with my dad the last time I was in the states, we visited different outlet stores/ shopping malls everyday! and stay there the whole day! No exaggeration!!! Nakakabored! :/
H&M (Americana, Glendale)

Anyway, back to H&M. :P I also liked the H&M store in Fashion Island in New Port Beach, CA. It is a big store also but not as big as in Americana because its a 2 floors. 

New Port Beach, CA
In Manhattan, H&M is in every corner but my favorite store is in East 42nd St. Two floors and they always has the latest items and their on SALE clothes are always perfect! Last week I bought this dress in 5th Ave then the next day when I went to 42nd St., it was on SALE! urgh! 

Happy Shopper @ 42nd St

For me, it is a cheap version of Zara and Forever 21 but a quality one. <3 I do like Forever 21 but I find it overpriced and if you'll buy printed one with a pricey tag ... there are big chances you'll see someone wearing the same clothes you are wearing. Cheese Luis! that's a no-no! plus the fact that we only have one forever 21 store in the Philippines. I just can't wait for H&M to have a store in the Philippines, if I will still be happy with their pricing & the quality of the clothes they will sell. 

Hmmm... :D

Someone Like You


Eddie: It's over. Why can't you just let it go?
Jane: I can't.
Eddie: Why?

Jane: Because I was happy. Because if this theory is wrong, men don't leave all women, Eddie. They leave me. 
Eddie: I know it hurts. I know. It's so hard to believe that something that wonderful can ever happen to us again, but it can. 

Jane: Of all the things you said to me that night, the thing that scared me the most was that I would find it again. Because I have. 
Jane: Will you say something?
Eddie: No.

MY REVIEW: My Aunt brought me there because Tito Rad's is just across where she lives and she craves for PANGA that time. I am not craving for anything but I am just looking forward for dessert. 

So, yea we finished our main course then the waitress asked us if we want anything for dessert and I was like... oh yah! ting! :D then she goes... we have ice cream(nah!),leche flan (I can make better) and turon. And I was like... wow! that's new. Then I asked... mi langka? she said meron. Impressive! then my aunt got excited too then aunty goes... isa ka order nga turon (one order of turon) and i looked at our server and smiled.

After 10 or 15minutes ... I know! long wait but its worth it! I was just expecting the usual turon. A loooong one and that's it. But tahdan! it was rolled like lumpia with ice cream on the side and strawberry syrup. The presentation is like Cafe Breton. Nakakaaliw! Its really delicious with ice cream and the taste of banana and langka ... yummy! oh so delicious! you'll forget about the other desserts. haha! exage but I really liked it! 

We asked our server how do they came up with that idea. She said before it was just their staff food. The staffs just wanted to eat turon so they made one and then from then on they decided to include it in their menu. Great! <3 

Bravo Pinoys!

Dear Diary,

It was sunny, busy Thursday. I am fixing my things for my trip to New York and visit my Aunt for a while before I go back Manila. I am not expecting anything that day but Mike called me at around 1pm and asked me if I am cooking for dinner and I told him that I can but our fridge is empty. He told me he'll call me back again. So, put down the phone and continue what I was doing.

Ring...ring... then Mike goes: Sweetheart, we are booked at 6pm. We will have a dinner date. You still have four hours to get ready. And I was like... We will dress up? yes. you can dress up. Yey!

Mike came home earlier than the usual and he dress up also for our dinner. He gave me chocolates.  Awww and those are my favorites. When we arrived at L'Venia, we chose to have dinner outside. It was really romantic because we saw the sunset and cold breeze kissing our cheeks.

We had like a bar-b-q nachos salad for our starter and I give high five for that. It is really yummy! Plus the freshly baked bread with that amazing Italian sauce. For our main menu we had steak but I forgot what exactly we ordered. We have it on medium well and for the dessert we had double chocolate. Haha! I forgot exactly the names... Ang sarap kase!!!

It was a happy, simple dinner. It is our little get together for Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year... since we will be far away from each other. :/
