Best Shopping Secret 2009!

DiscOVIries Photo Contest WEEK 7
(Contest Duration: 12.00am November 16, Monday to 11.59pm November 22, Sunday)

For DiscOVIry contest week 7, please share your Best Shopping Secret Discovery this 2009!

Finally, Outlet Stores are mushrooming in Pampanga in the North and in Sta.Rosa, Laguna in the South. Our favorites are the Marks & Spencer and Debenhams Outlet in Paseo de Sta. Rosa. We literally stopped and went down to check out the outlet store when we saw it. Up to 40% to 60% off branded clothes — but of course most of the stocks have odd sizes.

Don’t miss it when you are going up to Tagaytay this Holiday season!
(Tip: Pass through the Greenfields SLEX Exit and you won’t miss this at the back of Paseo de Sta. Rosa.)

So, do you have a Shopping Secret you discovered this 2009 that you’d like to share with us?

The Best Shopping Secret for 2009 wins P2,000 Worth of Ayala eGC’s!
(And a chance to win a brand new Nokia Phone, too!)

And the winner of the Unusual Food Combinations that Work for Week 6 is…

Alugbati Chicharon

Congratulations to Angie Zafa ( for the Alugbati Chicharon Combination!

or malabar nightshade spinach is a very healthy vegetable. Chockful of
vitamin C and other anti-oxidants, eating it once or twice a week is
guaranteed to bring in some much needed nutrients into one’s body.
However, this is not the case. One of my favorite dishes is to saute
alugbati with plenty of garlic and onion and top it with homemade
chicharon! Yep, you heard correctly. We save the pork rinds and fat in
the freezer and when we have enough, boil them and fry them into
heart-attack inducing crisp little morsels. Definitely the best way to
eat an otherwise slightly slimy green leafy vegetable

Can you do me a favor, pwede bang makitikim? Please email me. 🙂

  1. Anton, question. Would the M&S/Debenhams outlet have thermals or winter gear for kids? (2 to 6 years old)… THanks!

  2. M&S don't have a kids section but there are some thermals… Debenhams has a kids section but I did not pay attention to the winter gear.  Not really sure if they have.

  3. I have read about you in Entrepreneur before, and I see why you are such a popular blogger. I also think you are very professional because you post the nokia disc contests and winners on time. Keep up the blogging work. MOre power.
