Tita Maqui and Ate Jyl’s Divisoria finds

Let me bore you first with my finds from Divisoria. I am no longer my old self who can troop to Divi and stay there the whole day. Even though I need to, I no longer go home with bags full of new clothes. Instead, whenever I am in Divi, I keep my eyes on the prize which are boring household items. For this trip in particular, there were three special items on top my list.


Floor Rugs. Five for 100 only. Here in Bicutan, they sell for 3 for a hundred. I bought 300 worth of these. Non matching rugs and old-clothes-turned-into-rags are such eyesores. And check out the sequins. Now I feel like I am in disco whenever I step into the bathroom.

Marble mortar and pestle. I got this set for only 80 bucks in the sidewalk. I didn’t really think that I need them until I had Ate Dorina who kept reminding me how much easier her kitchen life would be if she had them.

A new hamper. 80 bucks.


I also bought underwear for my boys. Aki’s briefs were only 20 bucks while our daddy’s boxers were only 50 pesos each. I chose the most embarrassing prints for Franky. teeheee.

For Ate Dorina, I got her nice flipflops for her day-offs and rubber clogs for rainy days. Both pairs were only 50 bucks each.

I also bought items for Aki’s school party. Will blog about those in a separate entry.

Now for the fun part. Our tween girl’s finds

Can you guess what is here favorite color?

She bought the pink pouch for her Lola Do who came from London early this year.


For the other important girls in her life. She got this charm necklaces for her best friends, Chiqui and Claire and for Ate Che, her yaya and
my mom’s all-around help. The pink shirt is only 75 bucks. I got two for myself.

She also likes the Eiffel Tower.

Our little girl loves clips and stickers. She will always be our little girl.


Of her 1500 shopping money, she saved 500 pesos.
Belated 10th birthday, Jyl!

  1. Galing naman ng mga napamili mo Maqui, pag ako ang naliligaw ng divi hindi ako nakakabili ng ganyan kamura…:(
    hindi ata kami talga meant for each other ni Divi…lol

  2. I love ate dorina’s flip flop! At ang boxer ni hubby, NKKLK ang designs! Hahaha! And in fairness to Jyl, magaling pumili! Very kikay little girl. Bigla kong na-miss ang divi, actually isang kembot lang un from our place, the only problem is.. I have no time. Anyhoo, divi got all you need talaga, truelalu yan at walang halong eklavoo! LoL

      1. Haha! No, I’m not kidding Maqui! Part pa ng manila yung place namin, pagdating dito sa street namin tsaka lang naging part ng Caloocan. Ang weird noh? Malayo kami sa Monumento, mas malapit kami sa Manila. One ride lang from our place ang divi, mga 15mins travel time lang. Hihi
