Your cafe or restaurant can use some of these decors.

When you want to add "super" accents to your home, you may actually choose from so many decors available here.

I guess these are good pieces for a resto, not a house. I think so haha.

I was actually surprised to see so many decors in my life HAHA. If it weren't for my newlywed couple friends I wouldn't be out here doing' shoppin' lol.

They're servin' some icy and frosty Christmas, y'all.
IMG_3013.jpg
I dunno but if you have these clocks at home maybe you'll never be late lol.

We have so little time as human beings but do we even spend our time wisely and conscientiously?

Anything with "coffee" will always catch my attention.๐Ÿ˜…

Okay *drum rolls, please! Chadaannn~!! The Christmas Tree and all its decors were from Dapitan Arcade.

BACKSTORY:
In 2018, I was so privileged and very blessed to be able to fly to Manila a lot of times for work (which I will share in my future posts, as I dubbed on the title here: "Manila Diaries").
When I get the chance, I do a "side-bit" trip, and this on the post today is one of those many side-bit trips๐Ÿ˜…. My great friend-and-big sister from another mother, Miss Jasmin, asked me to help her and her husband pick out decorations for Christmas 2018, and of course, I immediately said YES!!
It was my first time going to Dapitan Arcade and I was overwhelmed with so much stuff you can buy at such affordable prices. It was as if my mind was blown. I've been to many markets here in Cebu but it was a first to go to a huge market dedicated to home stuff at such cheap rates hehe. I hope to go back there whenever it is safe to travel to Manila again. ๐Ÿ™
