SEAT SALE, that is.

Honestly, I'm often confused as to when and if it really is a Seat Sale at Cebu Pacific Airlines. The gazillion times I've mock booked flights here, I've always chance upon 1K plus - international trips. The times I actually booked myself trips, it was never for more than 2,000 bucks.

And even if they have crappy airline service, not-so-pretty cabin crew and cheesy airline games, and super delayed flights [most of the time], I won't pass up on such a cheap, giveaway sale.


Make a statement, why don't you?

Came across the following shoes at different times and I was awestruck with how they scream "statement" but with so much class.

Lamborghini Heels [RAWR!]

Christian Louboutin's Marie Antoinette Shoes

YSL Cage Shoes

Chronicles of Wanderlust: Panglao, Bohol

If there was a close choice for me, after Boracay, it would be Bohol.

Shoot me, before I've been here, I've always underestimated this place. First of all, it's too laidback and I didn't really think I'd enjoy being there, thinking there wasn't any place I'd enjoy going to. I thought that since they weren't known for a raging night life at the shores, I wouldn't enjoy the place. But I was wrong.

As it turns out, the laidback atmosphere of Bohol was exactly what I needed that time I was there. Coming from a week of deadlines, the sun and sand AND tours were the perfect getaway.

Here's a list of the tourist spots I've been to:

1. Chocolate Hills - I wouldn't miss this for the world. I don't like the idea of being the only person in the world who hasn't seen them :P

2. Tarsier Farm - despite the foul smell of these creatures, I forced myself to endure the photo op as they are going extinct.

3. Baclayon Church - oldest church in Bohol? 

4. Blood-compact Site

5. Dolphins! - I think they should count as touristy things to watch. And wouldn't you know it, when I saw one, I screamed "Willy!" Yes, such a doofus, this girl.

6. Balicasag Island - One of the best corals and fishes I've seen in my life. Beats Bora. Haha.

7. The Bohol Beach Sand - They're almost identical to the ones in Bora. Mighty fine and white!

8. Man-made forest.

9. Loboc River Cruise. The river cruise gives you the chance to enjoy sumptuous lunch while a folk singer serenades you. There's also a stop where you get to dance tinikling [a folk dance in the Philippines] and play the Ukulele. How cool is that?

Other nice-to-know factoids about Bohol:

1.Marlboro Lights retails for Ps. 28.00! Too bad I brought along with me 5 packs of MLs for fear of buying expensive cigs or resorting to Mighty [sold at Ps.8.00 per pack].

2. Star Peanuts taste way better than the more famous Peanut Kisses.

3. You can buy the famous Pastel of Camiguin here. A box of 6 is worth Ps.80 only!

4. Buy your pasalubong from BQ Mall instead. The prices are way, way friendlier.

5. If you can, take a shower with hot water. It seems less saltier that way.

6. Have at least a 5-day stay in Bohol. Despite the laidback ambiance, there seems to be an abundance of activities to do.

7. If you're heading down there, book the best tour guide, Boy RULES! His number is: 09225136688. Haha, plugging!

8. A bottle of 1 Litre of Absolut Vodka is only Ps. 615.00 -- Go, go, HOARD!

Bohol, I am coming back!


Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Movie

I've never liked movies better than their book version. And the Shopaholic movie, was, well, no exception. Albeit, this doesn't mean I didn't like the movie. In fact, I am in love with the American-ized Becky Bloomwood and the movie that comes with her.

Last Thursday night, the gang [me, R, C and T] trooped over to Greenbelt 3 to watch this. As we entered the theater, one can see that it really is a girls-night-out-kind of movie, everyone was with their girlfriends, and I can barely spot a guy.

I'd have to give this movie 2 thumbs and 2 toes up. It was hilarious and funny and it made me laugh the whole time!

During the scene when Becky's shopping rehab guide gave away her Barney's dress, I literally welled up and almost cried. No matter how many times I try to deny, I just can't hide the fact that I am another shopaholic who can relate to Becky.

Some details I noticed:

1. The screenwriters injected a "childhood-deprivation" issue.
2. Tarkie is HOT! I never imagined him to be that hot in the books!
3. Suze is royalty. Um, never showed any signs in the movie though.
4. Becky was a shopaholic to the core. She shopped EVERYTHING, from cookbooks, to cutlery, to spices, to stationery. Of course shoes, bags and clothes but the movie was limited to that.
5. Luke Brandon never worked for Successful Savings.

But despite all these [and some I didn't write], the movie is HELLA FUNNY. 

If you haven't watched it, well, try to. It may not be soul-moving but I guarantee you'll get a good laugh with it.

[wth happened to my writing?!]
