It's amazing how international brands are starting to take over Manila one by one- Forever 21, Cotton On, Uniqlo, Muji, American Eagle and Jamba Juice are just some of my favorites. Thank God for franchisers! I guess I don't have to 'miss' these brands too much since I have them in my home country already, yay! The ice cream from Coldstone Creamery is my absolute favorite in the whole wide world. When I dropped by BGC last week, I was delighted to see that I'll have another heat surviving buddy AND another international brand to miss less - Coldstone's coming to Manila really soon! Perfect for the scorching weather in Manila. Every time I pay the States a visit, I make sure I don't leave without eating scoops of Coldstone.

I decided to buy a late birthday present for myself that day as well. It's not common that you see cow stuffed toys in a typical plush toy store so I decided to make one, thanks to Animaland! Yes, I'm a seventeen year old who's a sucker for cows and stuffed toys. Here, you can create your own fluffy, huggable pal! It's quick and easy; anyone of all ages can have one!!!! .... like ... me.
Thank you to my lovely cousins for a fun time!
