It’s time to start buying pasalubong (presents) for the folks back home.
During a recent trip to Georgetown, Raft3r searched for lamps to bring home to mom. She’s into house decorating and is crazy about antique lamps.
My companion took me to this ultra hip lamp store. Prices were a bit steep but their products were awesome.
I took photos of what I think mom would like and sent them via MMS. Raft3r also took note of their product descriptions.
When I got back to the hotel, I decided to do some online investigations for lamps and lamp shades. After several trials and errors, I found the perfect site for my mom’s wish list.
Being totally clueless about lamps, their product search tool was a huge help.
Raft3r found want he wanted and more. The same lamps I saw in Georgetown were available online and the site was even offering them for half the price. Jackpot! Mom would be pleased.
Raft3r also browsed through desk lamps. The one with the iPod speakers caught my attention. I bought one for myself.
They will be delivered soon. Raft3r faces another problem. How will I take them home to Manila? Hand carrying them ain’t feasible.
Guess I'll be visiting my friendly LBC neighbor very soon.
