Happy April Fool’s Day everyone! No, I haven’t done anything outrageous to con you all as I did last year, here. And I am returning to Manila after a very brief trip on personal business, so it’s not likely that there will will be tales to tell about The Teen nailing Marketmen with an April Fool’s prank unless she has an elaborate one lined up for me on the plane… :) But I did want all of you to know that S&R is having a humongous sale from April 1-5 and management has assured me that there are a lot of goodies marked down. Bummer. I can’t make it to the store until tomorrow, I hope there’s still some stuff left over! And unlike the last time they had this sale last September or so, it will run five days instead of three, to reduce the chances of sheer shopping pandemonium and lines up the wazoo. They have added check out counters in Taguig, I notice, in preparation for the possible mayhem… And no, I do not have a commercial interest in S&R in any way, shape or form. I just spend a great deal of our food budget there. :)

    This sale is not as chaotic as the one last September. They armed themselves better also with more shopping carts from Pure Gold and wider and unobstructed spaces before the check out counters. There were good bargains but not as impressive as last time.

    happy april fools day to you, mrs MM and the teen….yehey! its sale in S&R and i got there at 8 am in time for the opening at the fort branch. wow, really lots of sale but plenty of excited and shopping people….at 9 am the whole store was jampacked with people and at around 10 am there was a shortage of carts. well,there were quite a number of good deals like the hard plastic tables for 4,6 & 8……i was able to buy these table for 6 at 4,599 for 2 tables as against the regular price of 3,500 i think. the bed sheets were also great deals at 55% off in all sizes……the martex pillowcases were at 150.00 for a set of 2…..not bad!!!!! they also have this libbey glasses at buy 1 take 1. well, i didnt think that the paper kitchen towels and sensodyne toothpaste were going to be on sale…….i bought them a few days before the sale only to fins out they were 300 and 400 pesos off……hu!hu!hu! anyway, though their sale last sept was more impressive, they always bring out good deals everytime……….
