Christmas Activities at Podium

One Saturday, we had a chance to experience the Christmas activity at Podium.  For purchases adding up to P2,500, you get a chance to participate in different activities such as card making, cupcake decorating, and xmas ball decorating.

Different Activities for kids.


Card making and Activity Center


Mrs. Fields had a booth where you can purchase their products. They were the ones who sponsored the cupcake decorating. But of course, the cupcakes that were given weren't the normal ones they sell.


The best experience we had was picture with Santa. It was for FREE! and there was NO LINE!

These little things melt my heart when I see big smiles on my kids’ faces 🙂


You can call Podium at 638-9781 for more information.

Character Sheets and Covers

Last year, my mother-in-law had her usual “pasalubong” for Chesca.  But this time, it wasn’t a toy or food.  It was something new.  A Dora Bedsheet set!  She absolutely loved it.  She got it from Shoppesville in Greenhills.  It was such a great buy.  The fabric was soft and Dora didn’t look fake (like most character stuff you find in Greenhills).

When I wanted to buy more character sheets a few months back, I couldn’t find the store in Shoppesville anymore.  We were told they closed but  had a shop in St. Francis Square across SM Megamall.

I recently tried finding the stall, and fortunately, one of the sales ladies on the second floor knew what I was talking about and directed me right away.

Enter the door beside Mercury Drug.  Take the escalator to the 2nd floor, make a right and another right (like making a U-turn), you should see the shop right away in front of the steel benches.


Took pictures of the store for reference.

A bedsheet set costs P500-600 compared to the Canadian brand in the malls which costs P2,000+.  It consists of a fitted sheet and 2 pillow cases.  If you want a comforter, a set would be P1,200-P1,500 depending on the size.  If you want only a comforter, it would be around P1,000, again depending on the size.

Products they had displayed.

Just make sure the fabric you choose isn’t the thin, slippery, one.  Make sure it feels like the nice thicker soft ones.


Do not buy this Princess design. This is the thin fabric I was talking about.


They have different designs for girls and boys.

Some characters for boys: Ben10 and Mickey Mouse


I was able to buy Strawberry shortcake, Dora, Hello Kitty, and Winnie the Pooh.

Here's my loot. Of course, don't expect great packaging given the price.

Kids will surely enjoy sleeping now with these character sheets.  For sure my kids do.  I don’t have to force them to go to their beds.  Instead, they climb up their beds by themselves and talk to whatever character on the sheets.  They tell them its sleeping time.

Whatever works right?
