Dubai Finds...Patchi and Longchamp ;-D

Hubby went on a business trip, and he got us these awesome and amazing keepsakes. He's just the sweetest! ;-D Anyhow, I realized today that I'm so officially living in the province (LoL), I was surprised to see that there's Patchi in Bonifacio Global High Street. It's such a pretty store! But oh my, I was amazed at how pricey the Patchi Chocolates are sold locally. Lucky, he got us enough to satiate our sweet tooth. He also got me a new bag, and there's an interesting story to tell behind it, so please read on.

Patchi Chocolates are love, love, love.  ;-D The tin can at the back holds chocolate hazelnuts, it's $16+ at the Duty Free in Dubai. Guess how much a tin can that size is sold here...Php 2250!
Patchi Plain Milk Chocolate Boxes. ;-D Some for us, others for giving away to his office. Equally delightful to indulge.  Sells for $10 in Dubai DF, here...Php 1150. 
Galaxy Jewels are another recommended Chocolate Brand from our friends from Dubai. ;-D
My new precious...Longchamp Planètes Large Long Handle Tote Bag in Red! ^^
Here's the story. I requested hubby to get me beauty products from the duty free, he flatly said no. So I told him, if ever to just get me another Longchamp, this time I want in in Red, large, and long handle. On his first day in Dubai, he was able to meet up with friends, and sweetly bought me a Longchamp at Dubai Mall. He happily showed it to me. Guess what? He got me a black one. Remember, that he already got me a black Longchamp Planètes, only it's medium and short handle the last time he went on a trip. So, my initial reaction was...HON....!!! I must have sounded like a complete b**ch! He was so furious at me! In the end, I apologized, and hoped and prayed that he'll exchange it at the store. Surprise! He did! ;-D

 At the Blogapalooza with it!! ^^ coming up next! ;-D
This bag is now my official media event buddy, it's so spacious, and Red is Red! Lovely! ;-D I was able to fit in all my personal effects, my iPad, and a DSLR. ;-D

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
