Online Shopping Anyone?

Don't you just love online shopping? And what is not to like, e-shopping is so much convenient and easier than traditional shopping.

Just imagine, sitting in the comfort of your chair, sipping freshly brewed coffee, as you browse through various online stores, checking out a multitude of shoe brands, styles, colors of your liking and then delivered right to your door step.

However, although online shopping is fun and easy, you should remember to exercise caution online.

  1. Deal only with reputable merchants/online stores.
  2. Research about the seller, especially if you are buying high ticket items.
  3. Make sure that the site is secured before making any payments.
  4. Keep a copy of your transaction receipts, for reference just in case.
  5. Check all the details in your purchase before hitting that buy button.  Double check return policy and the terms and conditions of the sale.

Sharing here some of my most trusted online merchants ~ personally tried and tested.

I am a sucker for group buying sites. Where else can you get up to 70% discounts on premium items?  My two favorite group buy sites are:
  • CashCashPinoy - I have been a client since 2012 and I have bought a great deal of items from CashCashPinoy, from travel bags, backpack, restaurant vouchers, etc.   In my 2 years buying from them, I have never experienced delayed shipment or problems with my item/s.

  • DealGrocer - This site features premium items and I have used it a great deal, whenever I am in a hunt for high-end hotel accommodations.

For fashionable finds, however, I frequent:
  • Zalora - I love that they have an extensive selection of children's apparel and shoes, perfect for the kiddos. Check out these trendy sneakers


Hubby meanwhile would definitely go berserk-excited seeing these so many watches (lol)! 

  • Next in my online stores' list is Lazada. It is my go to online store for electronic items. I literally spend hours just checking out these cool gadgets.

With Online Shopping , everything is literally a click a way.

Luxurious Family Staycation at Marco Polo Ortigas

I have always admired the Marco Polo Hotel brand. It is a known fact, that the Marco Polo has made a name synonymous to warm hospitality, comfort and luxury.

A staycation at its newly opened Ortigas hotel, was just simply waiting for the perfect occasion. And since we didn't want to go far this Holy Week, after last year's tiring Pangasinan trip, we thought a hotel break was in order. 

We booked Marco Polo's Easter Wonder Family Room Package, which included: breakfast for four (two adults and two kids), free access to the Piccolo Kids Play area, wi-fi access and tickets to the Easter Funtasy Egg Hunt. 

Our holiday started the moment we entered the hotel. The hotel lobby was grand and modish! Staff were genuinely courteous and hospitable.

The counter was a block buster, for a Black Saturday check-in.

Although check-in took a while (which was expected since many decided to stay in the Metro given the bad weather which was typhoon Chedeng), the stable and strong wifi internet connection, kept my boys busy; and the spacious hotel lobby with plenty of comfortable seating, served as my kiddos play ground while waiting for our room.

At check-in, we were elated to learn that we have been upgraded to a Premier Room (yehey! clap-clap).  Check out these room pictures.  

We fell in love with the rooms, right after we opened the door.
Our room is neat as pin.  The room is spacious, for the kids to run about (oh and they were running a whole lot of our time there).  Decoration is tasteful and very elegant.  While, amenities more than satisfactory.

Comfortable King sized bed

With separate seating area and welcome fruits.

Nespresso coffee machine and tea making facilities.

In room safe.

And one of the biggest bathroom we have been to.  You can fit a dozen people in there!

Separate toilets and shower area.


Luxurious marble bath tub, plush robes. Towels were new, fluffy and soft.

Classy triple bathroom mirror, with dual sink :P

Toiletries were only of very good quality.

The boys just had to check out the pool before leaving.  I love indoor pool (specially heated pools). This one is no exception.

One need not travel far to relax and have fun. For a quick weekend get-away with your love ones, MamaSpeaks recommends  Marco Polo staycation. Truly a relaxing experience.
