Yesterday, hubby had work to do in Lucena so I tagged along.
On the way to Lucena, he suggested that I kill time in SM Lucena while he was at work (for maybe an hour). First, I thought I wanted to go to BOOKSALE to look for art books I can tear apart and frame for our bare walls (another project waiting for inspiration)…
But, I felt that itch still – to go treasure hunting!
I couldn’t find swap meets or vintage shops so I just meandered to an Ukay-Ukay, the ‘Baguio Branch’ at Quezon Ave. corner Cabana St.
I found a very helpful article in myquezon.com that pointed me to this particular Ukay-Ukay. Apparently, it’s the one with the nicer selection.
I wasn’t really planning to torture myself with dust and heat overload so I gave myself 30 minutes. I walked out with 2 cotton sun dresses that I can use at home for really warm afternoons.
Not the high point of my day yet!
On our way home, we found Chito’s Garden in Lukban.
I’ve always wanted to have a M. Magnifica since my dwarf variety shriveled.
So sad. That one was a gift from my good friend Tere. Looking back, I should’ve researched on Medinilla care. That was during my early attempts at gardening.
Hubby chose a huge plant that I have yet to research on…
And I got this plant for free!
I will definitely go back to Chito’s Garden. The people were very hospitable!
They had a lot of gardening tips to share… most got lost in translation 🙂
These guys were winding down with their beers at 3ish in the afternoon.
Perfect time to mingle and share gardening tips (the beers probably had a lot to do with being lost in translation).
