I used to be a Belle De Jour Power Planner girl before, I've used their planner for two years now. I loved how cute and girly their planner is but 2009's planner was a bit disappointing for me; the spine of the planner became bulky and it became heavier. I'm one of the people who would really use planners everyday and I would tote it in my bag but it's not healthy for my shoulders. Sure I got to use the coupons but I don't want to damage my shoulder as I grow old; it might even require surgery if I overwork my shoulder.
So... I got a small lightweight planner, I found this Sterling planner by accident at Fully Booked in Rockwell yesterday. The pretty metallic blue lace design won me over.
I love anything with lace on it; it looks so elegant and classy.

The price is very lovely, a drastic price decrease from the Belle de Jour Planner which retails to almost P600
What I like about this is the simplicity; no frills, no unnecessary printed text or graphics that I didn't use for the past two years. I just need the essential- the schedule table. This makes it more lightweight!

It's even got the rail road map in Manila! So you could see where the trains are interconnected for travelling purposes. It is pretty useful when I'm gonna start finding work since I just ride Line 1, 2, and 3 most of the time.
See my finger/hand ratio when placed on the planner? It's pretty compact and perfect for me to carry around.
