We had a great time spending the day with Obet’s family (his parents),  with Nissa and Nate of course. Nate was so happy seeing us this morning.

Tomorrow  is the Feast Day of Sto. Nino, the patron saint of Tondo  but we went there early to celebrate with the family. True enough, when we reached the place, one side of the road going to their house was closed. We had a hard time navigating the place. We were not familiar with those streets before their house so we used the GPS in going there.  So hard to find a parking space even in front of their house.

As always I admired their old decor,  some figurines from long ago  still kept intact by Obet’s mom.  I found two more aside from those I took pictures of two or three years ago. I think the ceramic materials were made of porcelain. They were  quite heavy.

Cute, aren’t they?

I love these photos, simple depictions of friendship maybe and some precious moments with the old folks.

We took lots of photos by the way but they are all in Nissa’s camera.  Arrived home after more than two hours of traffic on the road.

SM Malls, the largest mall chains in the country are having a three-day sale in some of their branches nationwide with SM East Ortigas included. As it is closer to home, a mere less than five-minute tricycle ride and about a three-minute walk from the terminal, I decided to go.  An SM mall is where you could find exclusive shops and the regular chains of stores as well. They have lots of restaurant and eateries inside, Just take your pick.

Their linens are definitely a steal at half the price. I bought two sets and extra pillow cases at 50% off too. Curtains are selling at 20% discount. I found it hard to match (a contrast actually, just picking a particular color from the bed sheets) with the sheets but found some in the end.  There are so many items at discounted prices but these are my priorities.  How lovely to see all those displays but you need  cash or your credit card to buy them. Today is also the grand opening of Uniqlo Phils. SM East Ortigas branch.  Uniqlo is a brand of affordable  but stylish wear  for all ages and all sizes.  I had a grand time visiting the site but I didn’t buy anything there.  I am looking for something I could give Nate later on, maybe toys or shirts but I was not able to choose from the array of display at the mall.  Maybe I will comeback this weekend to visit the mall again.

I decided to drop by National Bookstore later but the new branch lacks those books I was looking for. I guess it is always better to visit Booksale, they have a nice collection of books that are almost always new.

Window shopping is okay but it is even more lovely when you actually shop for goods that you need and for those things that are sometimes bought on a whim.

Can’t resist taking shot of this the last time we went to Tondo to visit  my son-in-law’s family. Theirs is an old house full of bric-a-brac like this, it goes with some of their old wooden furniture with lovely carvings. I don’t know what this is made of because it is quite heavy and it stands more than a foot tall.  It’s an ornament to treasure, the design is definitely vintage.
