Cats from Papemelroti

Papemelroti is a shop in the Philippines offering unique gift items, trinkets and decors, paper products and jewelry. Their products have a rustic, countryside feel and are often peppered by inspiring quotes and sayings.

It’s only natural for me to frequent their shops not only because of their paper products and trinkets but because they carry cat-themed stuff. Yup, it’s a cat-friendly store.

Here are a couple of Papemelroti kitties I’ve adopted in their fave nooks in our house:

Guarding the X-Files department (my collection of all things X-Files) are felicity cat figurines, Mulder and Scully. Couldn’t resist naming them so.

Then there’s Sam the Siamese Cat figurine and her clones. Which Sam is the original no one can tell. Here she is lounging in front of my books.

Oh, wait, there she is hiding from the light, behind a Papemelroti note pad, holding up some secret message.

Then again that could be her cozying up to Kitty bubble ring. Kitty looks very much like Salmon Cat, my baby cat whose name I took up.

By the way, if you have any Papemelroti item, except for paper products and jewelry, residing in your house, you might want to join their raffle contest over at their website. Essentially you have to take a pic of the item in its current habitat, say a cat note holder on your desk, then post it on any social media channel account you have which is viewable by the public, like facebook. After which, you have to head on to their contest page for more instructions. At stake is a Papemelroti GC worth P1000 which you can use to adopt more cats, I mean, Papemelroti stuff.

Happening this Week and Next

Sale, bookfair, anime convention, food fest, blog giveaways and film festival!

The SM MOA 3 day sale starts tomorrow. Yeah!

Since you’ll already be at MOA for the sale, you may want to check out the 32nd Manila International Bookfair happening now until Sunday, September 18, 2011 (10AM-8PM) at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, Metro Manila. For the list of exhibitors, here’s the link.

We were there last year and I was able to score some really good books but not as much as my sister. I think there was an entrance fee last time but still  expect the place to be packed. Precious Pages Corp (I’m in no way whatsoever related to them.) has a booth again this year. Last year, girls were hoarding their pocket books because of the really big discounts. They also carry books for children. Last year, almost everyone was carrying their paper bags as they were giving them away in bunches even without purchase. Instant advertisement.

Also, same as last year, an anime convention will be happening at the SMX over the weekend, The Best Of Anime 2011. Cosplay is a given. There’s an entrance fee of course. For the list activities, click here.

Over at Manila Ocean Park, they will be having a Food Fest tomorrow ’til Sunday. I can’t vouch for this as I haven’t been to any of their organized activities before, but it’s food so I may drop by. For details, here’s the link.

Meanwhile,  the Korean Embassy will be hosting a Korean Film Festival over at SM MOA, (September 19-25) SM North (September 20-25),  and SM Cebu (September 28-October 2). I’ve read in the PDI that entrance is free. It is important to visit this page (Click “2011 Korean Film Festival” when you get to the page.) from the Korean Embassy to the Philippines website for screening schedules as the screenings are not a whole day thing. Synopsis of films to be shown are also on the page.  We will be catching Jang Geun Suk (‘He’s Beautiful’) in ‘A Happy Life’ and Song Hye Kyo (‘Full House’) in ‘Hwang Jin Yi’.
