Men's Perfume for 2012

The last perfume hubby had last year was a Bulgari which he bought from his balikbayan friend. Nothing followed after that not until today. He went straight to perfumery section at SM to look for new scent and he got these:
212 VIP MEN and Pacco Rabanne

Well, actually these are not new scents for him because he had the same brand before. However, he got good deal for these two. He got the 212 VIP Men at its regular price (Php4670) and had the Pacco Rabanne for only Php1500 (original cost is around Php4,000) plus a Gap Bag for me. Since CitiBank still had their 6mos. installment with 0% interest for Php5000 worth of purchase promo, hubby availed it. To close the amount of Php5000, hubby told me to buy anything from the different store. So I took one Maybelline foundation and two hand liquid soap to wrap up the amount. How he got huge discount for the Pacco Rabanne? He paid it in cash, and the sales rep labeled the perfume as FREE so it didn't passed the POS machine anymore. When we got home, we found out how we got it at huge discount aside from buying it in cash. Its box has no brand name at the front, only at the back and it says Demonstration-Tester. Not bad anyway because it still has the same scent and ml content.

Send SMS For Free!

I remember one late night, I asked my twitter contacts if there's someone out there who's into e-loading/auto-loading. I was in dire need of load that time because hubby wasn't home yet and I can't text him. I've finished a movie in DVD and no one replied, sad to say:(

Well, forget that unpleasant part because I'm here to share to you what I recently discovered. I rarely  buy load for my cellphone because hubby and I could chat anyway in Facebook or YM, he's the only one I've been sending SMS anyway. He would often suggest to just throw away my cellphone because it's useless if I can't reply to him because I'm out of credits.

Ha! But now I can reply to him even without load! I just need to turn on my Wi-Fi at home or at work or at any place where there is a WI-Fi Zone. How? I bookmarked magTxt.com on my cellphone and tada! Free SMS anytime!

This is perfect if you are living abroad and you want to text your relatives here in the Philippines. magTXT.com is a Philippines Free SMS Messaging Service. It's the best way to send free SMS to mobile phones from your computer. You just input the phone number, type the message and click send!. Most importantly, there's no registration and no log in required.

I've been using their service for quite some time now and so far all my messages were sent without missed! So, go ahead and try it. Feel free to link this post so you can spread this good news to all your friends. Enjoy!

Claimed: SM Advantage Rewards Points

I finally used my SM Advantage Reward Points! After three attempts during the holiday season last year, SM's system finally recognized my points. Actually, I used it not at SM Department Store but at Surplus. The sales rep was very nice to inform me that I could use my points instead of paying for what I had on my hands that time. I tsaid, sure why not! Then she swiped my card to check how many points I already have, asked if I am the one whose name appeared on the card and I said then she completed the transaction. She didn't even bothered to ask for an ID and that was a relief for me because I hate to fumble on my wallet aside from the fact that I am in a rush.

Sorry for hubby because the last time we attempted to use it was when he purchased our new dinnerware set. So glad that I got these two shirts in exchange of my points:)

Walgreens Prescription Savings Club: A Must for Those Living Abroad

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I often hear from my relatives living abroad that it has never been easy to stay in a foreign land. Unlike here in our country, where anyone within the family could easily be at your beck and call in times of trouble and emergencies, such situation could never be the same if you are living abroad. Well, I guess what they mean is that when you are living alone, right?

And what could be the worst thing that could happen to anyone living alone in a distant land? It’s getting sick. Thankfully, my relatives know how important their health is and they make sure that they are always in good conditions, rest if they need to and take necessary medications if their doctors prescribed them.

We actually got to chat about the glitch that happened to Express Script and Walgreens. And fortunately, Walgreens did a quick decision to help their patients and customers in getting over that issue. They now offer a special discount on annual membership for their Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. They are actually about to avail the special discount because come to think of it, for $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in their immediate family, including a spouse, dependents aged 22 and younger and even their pets. Oh and with $5 for individual applications, who would get worried of getting sick? Just imagine the savings they could get on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. They could also enjoy the discounts from flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies. And one more thing that my relatives keep on bragging me about Walgreens, they offer bonuses when they purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services.

Now they are more inclined in Social Networks not just to keep in touch with relatives and friends but also to keep their support to Walgreens. For those living abroad, like Walgreens on Facebook and Walgreens on Twitter to get the latest news and offers from them.
