old navy + sushi-ya

Never been a fan of SM Megamall, in a year I could count the times of my visit despite its proximity and accessibility to us, it’s not that I don’t love the shops in Mega but maybe it’s all because the mall gets too crowded especially on weekends, and weekend sales, and holidays and any other day in fact, aside from the horrible traffic and parking dilemma these are the reasons why we kept on avoiding the place. So, I don’t know what charm the mall has that people can’t get enough.

Two weeks ago we decided to pay a visit because a major sale is happening concurrent to the shop’s opening, you know I can’t dare miss it especially that we ONLY shop during sale season. Old Navy had finally arrived at SM Megamall, the 3rd store to open in the country and very much like its BHS opening day the jeans were on 50% off, tho this time only selected styles were up on sale. But despite the limit and all, we still scored some really nice deal and discounted around P4,800+ including freebies. My smile was ear to ear! ♥

Right after rummaging the shop for hours, I think we were at Old Navy for 3-4 hours, we felt the need to recharge and eat. Go on a feast if possible. I still have food vouchers from last year’s winning so to make the story shorter and to make my pocket happier we made use of it. We picked Sushi-ya at the lower level, it’s a Japanese restaurant, something new to try on besides it got good reviews way before. I love it that Sushi-ya’s menu is not limited to sushi and sashimi’s or don buri and noodles, they had teppanyaki, teriyaki, tempura, salads, all sorts.

We got ourselves the bento set which was already good for two, for the main we got Gyuniku (sirloin beef) and the set includes Kakiage, Agedashi Tofu, Kani Salad, California Maki, Steamed Rice, Miso soup and Iced Tea. It was a steal for its price, the kakiage was so filling and the tofu was so fresh.

We also had 8pcs Ebi Tempura, had Gyudon and 8pcs Tamago to go, all for P1,125 and I shelled out P125 cash only. I can’t thank heaven enough that day for the super discounts and deals, I’m blessed this way!

This weekend another favorite store is opening in Megamall, it actually opened today but we’re visiting maybe Sunday? We’re up to scoring discounted stuffs because Christmas is coming too fast. The goal this year is to shop as early as possible to avoid the long queues and to maximize my energy and to find each of you a personal piece.

By the way, I’m not yet back on track, I still have hiccups left and right but I’m getting by day by day. God is good and I know all things will settle soon. And yes, all good things come to those who wait! 🙂

 

P.S. I’m drooling to have breakfast on Sunday to some place posh with omelettes and pancakes and well, with the one I love ♥

It’s a routine to go out with the kids everytime I’m home, it’s addiction to get a whiff of the no-longer unblemished Tagaytay sky, and it’s a must that we eat together on Sunday’s or even Saturday’s during my off. Coming home always excites me, I love it when the family is just around albeit the kids bugging me to the nth degree. 🙂

During the first weekend of May, Leoncio and I visited home and spent Sunday lounging at Sky Ranch with Nanay, Che and the kiddos. Tho there were now plenty of restaurants at the façade of the theme park, I personally picked Tokyo Tokyo for a nice change from our usual pizza and pasta fare besides the kids never tried the resto yet. I’d love them to have a varied taste of everything so if in case the Japanese will occupy the Philippines once more they’d survive with maki and katsu. 😀

Tokyo Tokyo used to be a favorite lunch and dinner place back in the 90s, I even thought it was authentic enough because it was one of the Japanese stores I first tried when I was still working in the telco industry. I love their bento meals, and red iced tea and potato balls. During our visit we had an early dinner so we had some filling sumo meals, japadog, potato balls, California maki and pana cotta, coffee jelly & snow ice for dessert. I’d love to order everything and try again.

SAM & I shared this Sumo Remix –Beef Misono and Pork Tonkatsu while Nanay & Che had Pork Tonkatsu and Prawn & Vegetable Tempura.

The little big boy had a Japadog which he finished in delight.

Leoncio tried to battle the heat with his chunky Choco Sensation Snow Ice.

And because the Sky Ranch rides is very tempting as always to P, he requested if he can just ride the train, only that so we gave in. 😀 While we stayed at the porch overlooking the eye and this cute baby. 😛 I can’t wait for Ysa to get a little taller so she’ll be able to enjoy Sky Ranch like Ate SAM and Kuya P.

Well, I can’t remember a time when I don’t love Sunday, it keeps getting obsessive tho not all are real fancy I don’t mind the drift. For as long as the family is all smiles and stuffed and healthy, I don’t mind cutting my own budget nor give up a shopping grant for this –Sunday love! ♥
