Tokyo Travel Diaries: Souvenir shopping at Oriental Bazaar

Personally, I think the best place for you to buy souvenirs in Tokyo is the Oriental Bazaar in Harajuku. It's located along Omotesando St. and is just a few steps away from Kiddy Land which I also blogged about HERE.

Giveaway: Win a $100 Gift Card From Sephora!

Find Out How and Where to Get Good Deals When Online Shopping and Win $100 Gift Card From Sephora

If you like online shopping like most of us do, well then let me share with you three valuable tips on how you can save and where to score the best deals.

3 valuable tips on how you can save when online shopping:

The cardinal rule in smart shopping is to avoid paying in retail. So my first tip is to hunt for coupons before making a purchase. Couponing is the best way to save when shopping either in-store or online, and luckily, there are now sites that are solely dedicated for coupons. There are actually quite a few sites but the best one out there is DEALSPOTR.

Dealspotr is the “Wikipedia of deals” with thousands of community members  posting and curating deals for 65,000 brands 24/7. In fact, it has 54% more working coupon codes than the other known coupon site, based on recent study.

(To know more about Dealspotr, you can visit and sign up HERE.)

Next tip is to stack coupons whenever possible

Some retailers, allow you to use multiple coupons per transaction so maximize your savings by entering the codes strategically. So for example you have a coupon code for a $10 off purchase and another for a 15 percent discount off — enter the 15 percent discount code first, then the $10 code so you’ll get 15 percent off the full price of the item, before the $10 discount. 

Lastly, avoid shipping fees. Most online stores offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount so take advantage of that. But in case you’re falling short of that minimum, search DEALSPOTR and more often than not, you’ll find a free shipping coupon on your favorite store. 

Now that you know these handy tips, Dealspotr together with moi,,,, and want you to experience the “shopping high” so we’re giving away a $100 SEPHORA GIFT CARD to one lucky winner. 

To join, do all the mandatory steps on Rafflecopter (loading my take a while).

DIY Little Red Riding Hood Costume

My daughter's school will be celebrating Book Week, and they'll be having a parade where the kids should dress up as their favorite storybook character. She actually has a lot of Disney princess costumes already, but I sort of wanted her to wear something different this time. Anyway, I was looking online for some inspiration and decided that an easy option would be Little Red Riding Hood.

Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is home to a couple of celebrity chef restaurants like those from Mario Batali, Wolfgang Puck, and David Thompson to name a few. I've already eaten in Mozza the last two times I was in Singapore, so we decided to try Gordon Ramsay's Bread Street Kitchen this time around.

Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok

Hubby and I took a quick trip to Bangkok last March and spent most of the time doing what else, shopping! If you know my husband, he's really allergic to going to bazaars or anywhere crowded. Case in point, I've been bugging him to drive me to Divisoria for years, and he just won't do it! But for some reason, he was really game this time around to check out the Chatuchak Weekend Market. We've both been here a few years ago (not together), so I was really excited to go back and experience it with him.

Security Bank's Human Switch Kit

After Security Bank's Smart Saver Kiddie Camp event, I was really intrigued when they told me I could open an account without having to leave my house. The service is called the "Human Switch Kit" and all I needed was to log on to to set an appointment. Then, Security Bank will send someone from your preferred branch to personally assist you with your account opening. This means that this person will schedule meetings with you to claim your necessary documents and facilitate your account opening. After your account is opened, this person will also deliver your passbook and/or ATM card to you.

Security Bank's Smart Saver Kiddie Camp

Last month, my kids and I were invited to the launch of Security Bank's Smart Saver Kiddie Camp. Here, we learned that we should start the financial journey of our kids as early as possible. We should train them to be savers and teach them the difference between needs and wants, as well as the value of hard work.
