10 Things We’re Loving Now: A Jun Sabayton action figure, hotdog socks, a mini popcorn maker + more
Plus, the cross breed of a stethoscope, earphone, and speaker!
(SPOT.ph) We can end this whole thing with the Jun Sabayton figurine-yes, topless-but we found other cool stuff too: a baby popcorn maker, wellies to keep your feet warm and dry, and your handy guide to the comic universe!
Native Union’s Monocle Speaker (P2,250)
Tiny speakers or oversized headphone? You decide. This is your modern-day boombox-slash-bling in one. Feel the beat of your playlist go straight to your heart with this funky speaker dangling over your neck. It comes in a variety of colors so...one for every outfit, perhaps? By the way, it’s also a speaker phone.

Butterfly Twists Windsor Wellies (P4,299)
Sudden downpour? Roll out these foldable boots and step out into the shower in style. We know we will.
Butterfly Twists are available at Planet Sports outlets and department stores.
Fabrix Tablet Sleeve (P1,490)
We love this sleeve's soft but compact material-an iPad fits perfectly so it's not too bulky, and the lining has padding to keep your gadget cushioned against scratches and minor bumps. Clincher: the design is so playfully happy.

Cookeys Key Caps (P299.75)
Cleverly named pun aside, these eye-catching key caps will make you reach for the nearest pack of cookies every time you open your front door. It comes in cream and chocolate variations, too.

Hotdog Socks (P120)
Trade your boring stripes for some ketchup and mustard. Yum.

Sabayton Figurine by Louie Cordero (P5,000)
The price, we admit, seems steep....but it’s by Louie Cordero, who is a genius. The resin-with-automative-paint Sabayton figurine is a work of art, standing proudly at eight-and-a-half inches. Whatever lewd jokes you make from that sentence is all you.
The figures were launched on August 23 at Xbesitzer Art Gallery in Greenhills. Call 0915-380-5172 for inquiries.
Lechuza Self-Watering Planter (P1,550)
You know how it goes: you get a plant to brighten up your room or office...only to find it wilting pathetically when you return from an out-of-town trip over a glorious four-day weekend. These self-watering planters will keep plants in good shape for up to 12 weeks, green thumb or no.

Helman Popcorn Maker (P3,695)
For that authentic movie theater feeling. Because sometimes a modern microwave just doesn’t cut it for movie nights at home.
Available at True Value
Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe (P950)
With all these superhero movies coming out, it’s almost hard to keep track of who’s who and their complicated storylines. Navigate the intricate comic book universe (and impress your friends while you’re at it) with this book. Best of all, everything’s in colorful, simplified diagrams so it’s learning made easy.

"Make Out Not War" tote by Forever Ugly (P250 to P450)
This is just one of the many "Oh, totes!" from Forever Ugly-which may or may not be a twisted version of a popular clothing store. We’re choosing this because we like peace and harmony for all of mankind. However, if you want to be a little bitchy, there are plenty of bags with snark (like one bearing just one word: *You’re). And if you still can’t find the perfect tote, they will customize one for you.
Forever Ugly is at Cubao X. They also join the Esclota Saturday Market by 98B.
