hello mga mommies!
kami first time mag spend ng christmas sa aming house. kaya super excited na talaga ko. ilang months ko na ring pinag-iisipan kung ano ang motiff ng xmas tree namin. any suggestion? gusto ko kakaiba naman kasi at exciting.. saka malaki ba ang difference ng price ng xmas decor sa SM as compared sa Divi? medyo malayo kasi ako sa divi, baka konti lang difference eh sa SM na lang din ako buy.. what do you think mga sis? :)

Hi mommy  ;D kung marami bibilhin mo mas mura talaga sa divi. Yung tree ko nabili ko lang siya ng 3.2k 7 ft na color white, sa sm nasa 8k mga ganon. Sa mga decor naman mura pa rin sa divi kung mga balls and other ornaments wholesale kasi kadalasan presyuhan nila. Pero meron din naman mga ornaments sa malls na magaganda talaga na wala sa divi. Kung mga xmas lights mas ok sa malls ka siguro bili para mas safe  ;D  tignan mo rin sis kasi minsan may mga damage yung sa divi kailangan matalas din mata mo. Minsan kala mo nakamura ka na sa garland pero maigsi pala yung nabili mo  divi compare nung mga nasa malls, yun mga ganong bagay.

kaka-sad naman di kasi namin matatayo ang christmas tree namin this christmas. Ginawa kasing paradahan ng motor ang bahay namin. Need maging creative para magmukha paring alive ang bahay.

Madami po christmas decor sa may clustermall, before divimall, and divimall mismo. pasensiya na po di ko maalala name ng store. Dun kasi ako madalas bumili ng mga decors namin every year. May ilan din akong nabibili from bazaar and malls na unique and maganda talaga. Mga 90-150 ang christmas balls sa divi isang pack na nila yun. Pero depende sa klase. May nabili kasi ako na magandang klase nasa 500 naman.

Wala pa akong naiisip na panregalo sa family ko. waaaa. need na mag-isip isip

Wow!  December na...pero birthday ko muna.  Plan naming mag Ocean Park ni hubby and baby.  First time ni baby eh.  Last time kasi kami lang ni hubby sa Hong Kong Ocean Park.  Kaya this time kasama na si baby.  Kaya, tipid and ipon mode na kami  ;D  Pero, just in case, ang importante, magkakasama kami, kahit sa Luneta lang or sa grounds ng PICC.   ;D

we'll be welcoming our baby boy 1st week of December, ngayon palang halos tapos na ko magwrap ng Christmas gifts for family and close friends. mawawalan na kasi ako time gawin yun kapag lumabas na si baby. we're so excited kasi gift ni God samin ang baby boy namin for Christmas kaya it's extra special.   :)

sa mga mommies na may babies below one year old,i don't recommend going to shopping malls.sobrang crowded for sure.although maraming attractions at magandang magpapicture dahil sa mga decors pero yung hassle ng pakikipagsiksikan at mga pila sa pagbabayad sa cashier hehe wala akong tyaga. kami siguro hanggang dalawang beses lang magpupunta sa mall.as in yung mga kailangan bilhin,dun ang kami pupuntang section.syempre dapat may budget na sinusunod. i like going din sa mga bazaars, nuvali particularly. yung mga bazaars na alam mong safe ka naman.
gustong gusto ko talaga makapunta ng divisoria kaso walang maiiwan sa mga anak ko.sayang din kasi marami sanang mabibili na mura.but i found an online shop na yun hinahanap ko e meron sila.at to my surprise e kapitbahay pa pala namen so no shipping fee na.
sa aming family outing naman,ang final na napagdesisyunan namen ay Villa Escudero at Zoobic Safari. malapit din kami sa Tagaytay.so yun mga places na yun ang pupuntahan namen.ngayon pa lang naglilista na ako kung magkano magagastos for these places..like entrance fees,food,souvenirs, gas..para nakabudget na din. kapitbahay lang namen EK pero pass muna.next year na lang siguro kami punta dito.
i know madami akong makikita na toys,clothes at kung ano ano pa..but i will try to stick to my list. less pasyal, less hahaha!!! pero i will make sure na magiging happy ang Holidays na ito para sa aming pamilya. :)

Other than Divisoria, san po magandang mamili na mura around Metro Manila? Very nice suggestion ni sweetpumpkin. Share your shopping tips na rin.

hindi din kami nag mall pag holidays..iwas din kasi kami sa maraming tao...last year nag Subic Safari and Ocean park kami...this year baka Tagaytay and sa New year magpa book sa hotel near manila bay para free fireworks viewing na din...yun lang puntahan tlaga ang house pag Christmas day kaya nag decorate talaga ako...

wala pa ko makita na purple tree..sa Dimensione naman fuschia pink...meron sa NBS kaso 3 ft lang pero swak na swak ang color...sa Divi naman panay white and green..sa Dapitan arcade, brown, white and green lang nakita ko..pero ang mumura ng christmas balls sa Dapitan yun may sequence 8 pcs big for P50 lang..sa SM siguro mga P300 plus yun...babalikan ko talaga kaso wala pa ko purple tree..baka yun old tree na lang if wala talaga makita...

Mommies, would you know where can i buy purple artificial Christmas tree?

Sa MOA I've seen different colors of xmas trees, meron pa nga black. It's at this modern furniture store (sorry forgot the name of store) na in between Fax and Parcel and Living Well 2nd floor north wing. Dimension na ba yon? Can't remember pero yun lang ang store na unusual ang xmas trees.
