Super cheap talaga mag self pampering sa Manila kaysa dito.

Yes, peace and quiet until they get home.

JO said...

Hi Scribbit,
Happy trip! We all loved Mickey here!

Hi Agring,
Hehehe.. obvious bang lakwatsera?

Hi Rach,

Hi Auee,
Of course! Self pampering is a must!!! Ang mahal kasi dito eh... mas mura na sa pinas, mas maganda pa ang service!

Hi MomofTwo,
Yes, I am lucky! And yes, I love Ikea.
