OMI Christmas Bazaar Nov. 17-19, 2011

Holiday Shopping@Oriental Merchants

November 17-19, 2011


Every year in November, we deck out our head office in Alabang in all manner of holiday decorations because it’s the time when the ever-growing OMI (Oriental Merchants, Inc.) community comes together for the Annual OMI Christmas Bazaar. All products are sold at less than wholesale prices and we make sure it’s a feast not only for the eyes but for the palate as well.


To highlight our products we create tasting stations all around our office.  There is a pasta station that features our line of Italian Pasta accompanied by our wide range of pasta sauces.  A tapas section featuring our collection of stuffed olives, chorizo, artichokes, grilled peppers and a whole slew of gastronomic delights. A dessert station featuring our pannacotta, tiramisu and chocolate mousse mixes is set up to satisfy the sweet tooth.  Gift ideas abound as we showcase our collection of Christmas baskets. There is something for everyone here every year as we come together for our annual reunion.


We also invited Ms. Stephanie Zubiri (Modern Epicurean Kitchen) and Ms. Sabrina Artadi (Lifestyle Network’s Sabrina’s Kitchen) to do cooking demos of easy-to-prepare Holiday dishes.  You can find the recipes here.


This year we also got support from our generous clients who donated gifts that we raffled off to those who attended.  And the winners are…!

  1.       Ms. Amelia Rios                Free Accommodation for 2 at Pearl Farm, Davao City
  2.       Ms. Rhodora Gazmin         A Year Supply of Olive Oil
  3.       Ms. Sonia Lorenzo            Gift Certificate from Azuthai worth P2,000
  4.       Ms. Victoria Pertiera          Gift Certificate from Contis worth P1,000                


Three years ago, we made the conscious decision to say NO to plastic and we are so glad that the OMI community has followed suit and they all came prepared with boxes and reusable bags.  They all got additional ECO-discounts on their purchases. Those who brought their friends along got gifts as well.  Our annual sale has been around for more than 10 years and each year, the OMI community keeps growing. It’s three whole days of catching up with old friends and making new ones.  In 2012 we may have to hold our annual gathering in a bigger venue to make room for the new friends that we hope you will take along with you.
