Review: Sammydress.com

SammyDress.com is a shopping site which offers latest fashion trends at lowest price and ships world wide. I ordered three products, two tops and one skirt. I got my notice from the Post Office about one month after I did my orders at the site (International packages were usually received and picked at the Post Office). I had to pay 50 php fee to the post office upon receiving the package. The photo below is the actual parcel when I received it. Apparels are nicely wrapped separately with plastic bag. 


First Item: 

(I actually love the print, but it faded out after washing; black print turns to gray after I washed it)

Second Item: 


(actual material of the apparel is silk rather than chiffon)

Third Item:

Casual Style High-Waist Solid Color Cotton Blend Skirt For Women

(the skirt is surprisingly good quality! My favorite item among the three)




Quality (2/5) 
Wearable and fashionable, but product quality is average. It looks good more on the photo. Details about the product are not that reliable. Items are usually 'one size' which means it fits to XS-M; which also means, too big but will fit to Extra Smalls, somehow will fit to Smalls, and right size to say is Medium. 

Price (3/5)
Price for the product is affordable and reasonable than most of the other shopping sites I tried.

Shipping (2.5/5)
Average. It offer same processes like all other international online shopping sites I knew.

Summary (2.5/5)
Average, but worth a try!

Prestige Cruises Buffet - Forget the food, enjoy the scene

What it offers?

An eat-all-you-can dinner buffet while cruising at Manila Bay. Heavenly sunset, magnificent skyline and evening cruise. Mouth watering Filipino dishes. Exclusive and sumptuous atmosphere with friendly and welcoming cruise ship crew. 


Our Experience.

We booked our buffet dinner at 7 PM and we're instructed to arrive at the area earlier than the booked schedule for registration. So we went at the area around 6:30 PM. After the registration, they gave us number. We waited until the boat docked. After the first batch of customers left the boat, they let us in chronologically depending on the number we had. Then the choice of sitting depends on a first come first serve basis.

As you can see at the photo above, the ferry has top, upper, and lower deck. Top deck was not included from the voucher we had (they said food there was different from the food they served below), so the only choice we had were the upper and lower deck. Food was served at the lower deck. Restrooms are also found at lower deck. But the view, ambiance, and tables are much more pleasing on the upper deck (on my opinion though).

We had our table at the side and our view from here is spectacular. We really enjoyed the feeling of cruising at the bay!



However, the food was truly disappointing. It is not that bad 'bad', rather it tastes ordinary; far from what they claim 'mouth-watering-dishes'. Plus, I didn't feel the 'eat-all-you-can'. The food was limited! When we finished our first plate and attempted to go down to have another round, most of the dishes are already empty. Rice, pansit, lumpia are the only dishes left. 


My Judgement.

The thing I enjoyed most was the scenery and the experience of riding a ferry while having dinner. But yes, like all the other reviews, the food is not pleasing. So if you want to enjoy your stay, ignore the food. Just enjoy the company whom you're eating with.

Review: Rosewholesale.com Items


I was so excited when I saw the LDN shirt inside the plastic bag, I've been waiting for this for a month! Then when I opened it my first impression was that the material's okay, the size is huge for a free size and the stitching is still undone. Overall, my first impression was disappointed.

Sample photo in the website

The LDN Shirt costs $6.85 in the Rosewholesale website. It pretty much is cheap for a shirt like that but satisfaction and quality-wise, the price is just right.

The product title says "Round Neck Plus Size Letter Print Half Sleeve T-Shirt For Women". I know the title mentioned Plus Size but the model in the sample photo isn't a plus size so i thought it referred to the letter print (LDN) as plus size. I think I ignored the measurements because it also says "Free Size" on the size option upon shopping. I just realized that the measurements were really XXL or even greater as indicated. The sample photo was really misleading. As a result, it turned out to be a sweater-like fit on me which I was not expecting.

Actual item received:





When worn:

Plains & Prints pants
Dresslily beanie | Forever 21 sunnies 
Sophie Paris lipstick in Russian Red



Rate - 7/10
Actual item looks exactly like the product photo except for the sizing illusion. It really is bigger than a usual oversized shirt. Some of my friends noticed that it's huge for me too. My photos when worn may look like it's just right, but I guess that's the illusion of this shirt. It looks good in photos. But I still like the print though and I think I can still wear it during my comfy laidback days.


Sample photo in the website
The second item I ordered was this Leopard print dress. It costs $6.12. I really thought this was a straight dress. But when I opened it, it was actually 2-piece. That disappointed me at first because the skirt (and top) looks absolutely low-quality and cheap. Now I know where Divisoria gets their clothes. My first thought was I would just use it at home because of the cheap material. The skirt was also nothing special. It was just cut in a certain way. But read on for my change of perception.

Actual product:




When worn:

Firmoo sunnies



Rate - 6.5/10
After I ironed, tried and styled on the pair, I actually quite liked it. It looks good in photos and when worn than in actual. I could style it in a multitude of ways too. The skirt is a wee bit short though but it's good for a casual day out.

Overall Rosewholesale Experience: Quality-wise, you might think twice but for its affordable prices, I guess it's okay. Shipping also takes about a month like in my Dresslily experience and I'm not a fan of long shipments. But their items and clothes are really affordable, trendy and extraordinary so might wanna check their site for wholesale shopping or just for fun.
