Precious Moments with TRT Ladies




Pin It




Earlier I had a pre-Valentine simple celebration with some Roadtripper ladies.  We headed to my dreamt place, the Precious Moments Showroom.

I've always been eyeing to visit this restaurant before. The venue is just along the way where the provincial buses enroute to the south passes-by (where I live).  What's more attractive than this not little Precious Moments statue that greets you at the entrance.  Also, I've already heard and read many more beautiful stories about it as you get inside accordingly.


Wow! so when I was invited to join the group, I really can't hesitate the idea and went to the metro (one of my favorite things to do, for some shopping as well - real roadtripper a.k.a "lakwatsera" in me).


Precious Moments was created by Mr. Samuel "Sam" J. Butcher.  What began as a mere drawing of tear drop-eyed children as gifts for family and friends evolved now as one of the most recognized forms of art in the world. More than cards and posters that give messages of love, care and sharing, the Precious Moments figurines with over 1,500 designs and continuously growing has also became a hobbyist collection.


Precious Moments in the Philippines primarily engaged in the production of the dolls since 1981, and operation of the restaurant and showroom. In July 2010, the Manila showroom was opened and it now houses most of its collection.  It also serves as headquarters for the Philippine Precious Moments Collectors Club with more than 150 active members.  Worldwide, the Precious Moments Collectors number to over one million.



So finally, I was here enjoying myself with their gallery. I am really overjoyed seeing those cute and lovely dolls and figurines that were created and sold over the years.  Some of them carrying beautiful messages.  This time they have transformed the place from the previous Christmas holiday set-up to the very cozy and romantic mood to suit those who will go on Valentine date tomorrow.  Actually, as of today, we can already see couples and some groups dining together.





So now let me share to you some of the photos I took from their galleries.







As our eyes and spirit truly enjoy the moments and chatted, so our tummies as we feasted on the famous Samburger, carbonara and some delectable desserts.



Can't resist to take home some of these cupcakes as "pasalubong" for my little boy. Sold at P35.00 each and the mini-heart cake which costs P180.00.



Cheers to TRT ladies:  MommyGiayJinkee Umali, Aileen Siwa, Joy Felizardo and Aylin Vedad.

  1. What do you mean roadtripper ladies? Is this a public group or a private group of friends you have?

    The characters of Precious Moments seem good to put in a baby girl's playroom.

  10. I didn't realize that this industry is still going strong. I see a lot of kids nowadays with the tech/digital versions of "old toys" - though I'd imagine old-school playthings like dolls are more for collectors now :)

  18. I remember I know someone who collects these precious angels but I just can't recall who. If I remember the story right, she has an entire cabinet of these little darlings in her home. :P

  19. If only their location is more strategic, I'll take my young daughter there so she could appreciate dolls more than her mom's tablet.
