I’ve been to Lanai in Pasong Tamo several times in the past year. The first time I went, I spent more than 15,000 on a pink embroidered dress, something like 9,500 I think, some placemats 2,500, and other home stuff.
Although the dress was expensive considering that it was locally handcrafted, it turned out to be a good buy because every time I wore it, I felt so comfortable parang duster but pretty enough to be worn on casual gatherings. Since I liked it a lot, I went back to Lanai twice to buy naman a different color pero they only had that pink color.
Last Tuesday, I was on my way to McKinley Hill thru Pasong Tamo when I suddenly remembered that I needed more place mats for the dinner this friday.
I went to Lanai and was surprised that they have restocked their embroidery section on the second floor. There were more than a dozen of the same dress that I bought last year and in different colors. See that pink dress? I have the exact same one. I have so far worn it 3x.
I got excited when I saw the embroidered white dresses. Perfect. I’ll buy one.
I was expecting that the price would increase but I never thought it would by a whooping 60%! The dress now sells for P 15,300
Medyo namahalan ko. I decided not to buy.
Lanai has one long dining table on the ground floor in their store. There were at least 4 waiters naka-istambay kasi walang tao. Siince I was starving (no lunch yet) I asked them if they served food. I went over their menu and when I saw the “spaghetti”… I plunked down on one of the chairs. It was actually kind of awkward because I was the only customer, my back was against the cashier counter of Lanai. Parang nakakailang kumain. Eh I ordered already so nakakahiya na to change my mind.
I actually liked the place and the ambiance. It’s classy and quiet.
