Get 20% off on all love seats at BLIMS Love Sale from Feb 14-29

Valentine’s Day is nearly here and for you couples out there, BLIMS has a special treat just for you: a sale on its love seats!

While the term love seat can refer to a variety of seating options – from a wooden bench with two cushions to an S-shaped sofa, also called a tete-a-tete or a courting bench, on which two people can sit while still facing each other – it most usually refers to a two-seater sofa.

Did you know that love seats originally had a very different purpose? They were first built in the 17th century to allow ladies clad in voluminous gowns – yes, the type that used hoops and had layers of fabric and petticoats underneath – to sit down in comfort.

Over the years, women’s fashions shrank into slimmer forms, allowing more room in the seats. It became apparent that these seats gave courting couples a place to chat in private, or stay close with one another, while still adhering to cultural norms of the time. Thus, this piece of furniture came to be known as the love seat.

Today, love seats grace homes of couples or singletons who have come to appreciate their style and comfort, as well as their economy in required space and multitude of uses.

During its Love Sale from February 14 to 29, BLIMS Fine Furniture gives 20% off on all love seats which include:

Charlotte 2-seater Sofa. A perfect blend of style and comfort, it features a double arm cushion design and plush seating. Place this in your bedroom as an extra but stylish seating option.

Blims Love Sale

Hinoki 2-Seater Sofa. Premium leather sofa with soft key arms and black metal legs. Lounge here while reading a book or drinking a cup of hot cocoa during these chilly nights.

Blims Love Sale

Finlay 2-Seater Sofa. Plush and luxurious, this premium leather sofa brings sophistication and comfort to your space with its generous low arms and sleek metal legs. Snuggle up with your significant other on this sofa while watching your favorite TV shows.

Blims Love Sale

At BLIMS, you can find a complete variety of furniture, with categories such as:

  • Living Space – take your pick from an wide collection of sofas and dining sets.
  • Sleepshop – BLIMS is equipped with a wide array of bed frames and mattresses that will give you quiet serenity and peaceful slumber,
  • Recliners & Loungers – indulge yourself and bring home a seat you can just sink into.
  • Office World – find the items that allow you to take charge.

Well, venture into the still seemingly uncharted Aseana City Business Park in Paranaque and there you will find the newly opened 390 Degrees.

Operated by the same team that brought about Ombu Kusina in Quezon City, 390 Degrees brings the same hearty servings and imaginative takes on comfort food in an elegantly well-appointed setting that Ombu Kusina does.

Here, though, the restaurant’s concept centers around its charcoal brick oven which influences all of its dishes. In fact, the resto’s name 390 Degrees refers to the temperature that restaurant’s oven must maintain to produce its delectable dishes.

2020 Meet Up Meal Deal at Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Think the treats are done just because the holidays are over?

Well, here’s some good news!

You and the gang can come together to enjoy good eats for just Php2,020 thanks to Shakeys’ 2020 Meet Up Meal Deal.

I discovered this great offer together with my office buddies when we went out to lunch.

Truth be told, we were actually supposed to eat at the a newly opened resto nearby but we were told that serving time would take longer than usual. Having meetings or tasks already lined up in the afternoon, we opted to eat somewhere else.

That “somewhere else” turned out to be Shakeys along Tomas Morato.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

This branch has transferred from its previous location across the street to this new location which affords it some added floor space and reinvigorated decor for its interiors.

At my coworker’s suggestion, we decided to take advantage of the 2020 Meet Up Meal Deal which allowed us to eat our fill from these Shakeys specialties:

Two Large Thin Crust Pizzas. We opted for Shakeys’ No. 1 flavor, the Manager’s Choice which is loaded with ham, beef, Italian sausage, green bell pepper and onions, and Hawaiian Delight which is topped with ham and – I-don’t-know-why some-people-make-a-big-deal-about-this-and-I-don’t-care – pineapple tidbits.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Two Pasta Platters. We opted for a platter each of Skiletti (spaghetti which was served in a skillet back when I was a kid and I guess the name stuck), and Carbonara Supreme.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Ten Pieces Chicken ‘N Mojos. Crispy and juicy fried chicken paired with Shakeys’ famous mojos – breaded and deep-fried potato slices.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Ten Pieces Mozzarella Sticks. Sticks of mozzarella coated in breading and deep-fried to a a crispy golden brown on the outside and stretchy and melty on the inside.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

One Family Tuna Ceasar Salad. Tuna flakes, fresh lettuce, cucumber slices and crunchy croutons tossed in creamy Caesar dressing and topped with grated Cheddar cheese.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

One Pitcher of Iced Tea and One Pitcher of Soda.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

All these can satisfy the appetite of ten people but since we were only seven in our group, you can imagine how full we were at the end of the meal. We ended up getting the remaining few slices of pizza and a sizeable portion of the carbonara for takeout.

Shakeys, Tomas Morato

Plus, the 2020 Meet Up Meal Deal comes with some bonuses you can enjoy on your next visit: a free Shakeys SuperCard and Php450 worth of gift vouchers.

Shakeys’ 2020 Meet Up Meal Deal is available in all Shakeys outlets until March 31, 2020. The price is for dine in and carry out only. Add Php100 for delivery.

This Shakeys branch is located at Tomas Morato corner Scout Rallos Street, Barangay Laging Handa, Quezon City, open 24/7. For delivery, visit shakeyspizza.ph, or call +63 2 77777777 (landline) or #77777.
