It’s the M&S End of Season Sale!

A couple of tops in Marks & Spencer caught my eye when I bought some Christmas gifts for my uncle last month. I didn’t have time to check out items for myself then, but I call it a blessing in disguise because M&S has an ongoing end-of-season sale!

Marks and Spencer Philippines End of Season Sale 2014

Get your wallets ready!

I’m eyeing these items from the Fall-Winter collection of the Autograph line. The overall look is so… #SimpleGirl, as me and my friends would call it. Haha! I must blog about that “concept” soon. I also spotted another striped top the last time I was in M&S, although it was in another color (red, orange, or red-orange, if my memory serves me right!). I hope it’s still in stock!

Yolanda, You and Hallyu: Fundraiser + How you can help

From restaurants mounting “Dine for a cause” projects down to private individuals’ offering their skills and services with proceeds going to various organizations, there is no shortage of ways in which you can help those affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

Yesterday, I came across this post on the Ateneo Initiative for Korean Studies (AIKS) 아테네오 한국학 선도 Facebook page:

YOLANDA, YOU AND HALLYU: Pagbulig, Pagtulong, 도움

YOLANDA, YOU AND HALLYU: Pagbulig, Pagtulong, 도움

YOLANDA, YOU AND HALLYU: Pagbulig, Pagtulong, 도움

It’s time for Filipinos and Koreans to work hand-in-hand again to extend help to our brethren from the Visayas region. Our solidarity must work not only in good but also in bad times.

For Kpop fans out there, perhaps you have old or extra Kpop goodies (or other goodies for that matter) that you can contribute for auction — all proceeds will go to victims of Yolanda!

PLEASE SEND ALL KPOP DONATIONS TO THE MODERN LANGUAGES DEPARTMENT, SCHOOL OF HUMANITIES, ATENEO DE MANILA UNIVERSITY (MON-FRI, 9AM to 5PM)

For inquiries, please contact aiks.ksip@gmail.com or romarchuca@gmail.com / 09272310070 / 09239457227

I planned on selling some items early this year (alongside the KPop stuff I bought in Korea still lying around in my boxes) but I didn’t have time to work on it. Maybe stalling for that is a blessing. Now these items really have to go.
