I find it very fulfilling every time my hubby and I travel to different places here in our country and purchase local products. A lot of times we are thrilled on how amazing it is that we actually could do a lot with what we have here. It makes me super proud. So if you are proud to be Pinoy let's go and support Filipino Brands at the Global Pinoy Bazaar.

Deal sites are very much appreciated nowadays, I must admit I am one of the many who check through them every so often to see if there's something interesting or if there's anything that I need which I could possibly get for a lower price. Yes I am an online shopper, I still remembered a few years back when I registered my first ever online shopping account with eBay.ph I was then super excited and had my purchases delivered in our office, the guard on duty got used to it that he would always tease me "ma'am may package galing abroad ka nanaman". I also thought of selling online but later on figured out I am more of a shopper.

eBay philippines plus kuponan a sure win deal!

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." RIP Steve Jobs

I was caught off guard with the news that the MAN who had contributed a lot to technology is now gone...
Apple will forever be your living legacy, you will always be remembered ...
