Pop Swatch!

They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match.

We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new stocks. Today, the large watch trend is being led by Original Design Minimal (ODM).

    hey paperbag! yeah, there’s still gift gate. they have a gift gate store in glorietta 2 (but now it’s closed because of the bombings). i’m not sure if the gift gate store in greenhills is still open though.

    Hey Patricia, type the 90s topics you wanna read about on the search bar above. We’ve talked about the candies you mentioned. Oh and you mean BIG BOY bubblegum.

    Thanks for the input. Now I’m super excited to find that gum wrapper.

    I know that particular gum inside a carton…it’s melon-flavored. You’re the first person I “know” to mention that nostalgic gum. I hope you’re researching the name of that gum because I am! Unahan tayo. Lol.

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]

  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
