Hi meows! The Offbeat Cat (me) was a part of Belle and Cat's Sunday fair last July 27. It was a super fun event filled with art, crafts, handmade items (like leather bags, jewelry) and snacks! They also served the best and crunchiest okay ever! I think I had about 5... Lol
|Yummy snacks for everyone (free!)|
I had my meow stickers on sale along with some kitty brooches and earrings!
So happy that my meow stickers sold fast!
I still have a lot of pending orders to ship :D
Hey! Those meows look familiar!
Bonne Handmade sold these cool turbans
Studio Bohemia had beautiful resin jewelry. I heard that they also supply to the Ayala Museum gift shop!
Another fave - jewelry by Istorya! You can have the words and names customized :D
Anyway, don't worry if you missed the last fair because we will be back on August 17 for the Anti-Monday Bazaar! There will be lots of cool shops and maybe even one selling a fender frontman 10g! I'll be posting more details when I get them. Hope to see you there :D

It was an extremely busy week... So busy that we did not even feel the weekend! Right now I feel that I need to be extra productive since it is a Monday again.
The first task on my list is to clean the house :D I joined an art fair (more on that in another post) and because of this our tiny home has been littered with all my stuff! Next on the list is catching up on all my e-mail messages and pending projects.
cake walk... haha).

Have you been to Robinson's StarMills? It is
a bit out of the way for us Ortigas folks so we never had plans of visiting. I did hear about the outlet stores there but then again San Fernando, Pampanga is quite far from our home so yeah, no plans were ever made :D
We finally got to visit a couple of weeks ago. My mom wanted to check out the outlet stores (and I also had an errand nearby). Getting there was easy - just go straight NLEX and then take the San Fernando exit.
Shoes, belts and bags are on sale too! Nothing interesting for meow though :D
Our next stop was the Mango Outlet. I was surprised to see discounts up to 80% here!
Dresses at P625!
Some sizes are not available though but I am sure that you will find something that you like. They also have coats, shoes, bags, belts and other accessories on sale.
I liked this colorful bead cuff but decided not to buy it because I have so many accessories collecting dust at home :D
My mom ended up getting 7 items for just p1000! Some clothes even have extra discount when you get to the cashier.
War of the Worlds Anniversary and Alien history + timeline :D There were still many stores (Toys R Us, All Flip Flops, Nike, Adidas and others) but we did not get to visit anymore since we were in a hurry to get on the road before rush hour. Not sure when we will be back but we will definitely drop by again if we are in the area.

We decided to make an impromptu trip to Barasoain church after seeing several signs along the highway. We all thought that it will be a quick stop over since we assumed that it was just near the exit... Of course we were all wrong. As it turns out the church is quite far from the exit! It was traffic too since the roads leading there are small and congested (due to several road works). But the side trip was definitely worth it despite all those setbacks :D
The wooden door is decorated with intricate carvings.
It is fascinating to think that so many historic events happened here - The first Philippine congress, drafting of the Malolos constitution and the declaration of the first Philippine republic. It was also General Aguinaldo's temporary home. Not sure where he stayed though... I also can't imagine how it must be to live in a church :D
I noticed the all seeing eye on the altar. There is a small cafe and a museum in the church compound but sadly it was closed that day (Mondays closed). The cafe caretaker recommended that we drop by Bahay na Tisa (literally translates to Stone House) which was just a few blocks away from the church.
It was definitely a good decision to make that detour. Next time though we will be more prepared with our maps and gps :D Happy Wednesday folks!

I have been very forgetful lately. Not sure if it is age related (eeps!) or maybe I am just thinking of too many things! When we go to the grocery I need to have a list of the things that we need so that I'm sure that I do not miss it. One time I forgot to buy cat food... and of course my cat was not pleased when I got back!
When things are getting out of hand it is nice to take a quick break... get a nice cup of coffee or something nice and sweet like a Kit Kat bar! There is nothing better than a Kit Kat break :D
|What?! No cat food?|
The original chocolate flavor is still my fave but I also like the green tea variant :D
Have a break, have a Kit Kat! Happy Tuesday, folks :D
