The belly rules the mind. ~Spanish Proverb


For some months now I've been getting good deals from It's a website that offers consumers discounted prices for certain products. They are also perfect as gift coupons. I have bought mostly deals for restaurants, skin treatments, hair salon and photo printing. I have yet to buy a fitness deal. :D I hope they offer that soon...

The very first one I used was for Cinnabon's opening at the 22nd district of Vienna. The mall where their new branch opened is just some minutes away from us. I took a special trip there today with the little boy, it's opening day after all. The deal was: I paid 5€ for a 10€ worth of products.



(my actual coupon, gotta love how those rolls look!)


(A not-so-in-the-mood little boy.)



What's left of the strawberry Chillata, a caramel pecanbon and a classic cinnamon roll.


As for the quote, it was so true for me especially today. :D I just can't resist what my tummy is saying even if my mind says no. lol.

i usually forget discount coupons--expired na pagnaalala ko.:(
love ko Cinnabon--somebody brought us cinnamon rolls from Starbucks the other day, di kasing sarap ng Cinnabon.
bakit wala sa mood ang little boy?:p

salap! it's been awhile since I had one....:)

salamat sa dalaw and for explaining the difference of chow mein & lomein.....I actually don't see the difference kasi parehas lang kasi yung luto at lasa nila...and I can't tell if it is fried or tossed....:)

have a wonderful weekend...salamat sa dalaw.
