Last September, I saw my SOFA classmate’s pink Brother machine in class and was so inggit with it! Moreso when I learned that she got it at a quarter of the price of a brand new machine! So I dragged my sister to Pier in Manila to scout for some portable sewing machines as an advance birthday present for myself.

I am not really familiar with the Manila Port Area so we decided to just commute going there. It was easy, actually. We went through the MRT-LRT-Jeep route and was there in no time. We immediately saw Store #1 I-J which was pretty popular in the blogosphere so we decided not to roam around anymore (since I read that there are a lot of pick pockets in the area).

They have a wide variety of sewing machines of different colors and sizes and types, I was so confused! So I just asked the sales person to show me the best Brother sewing machine that they have on stock.
