I was born and raised in Malabon. Stayed in that quaint little town (now a city) until 2009. And what I loved about the place? The fresh produce, especially seafood that I buy DAILY in the market, just 5 minutes from where I live.

When I transferred to Quezon City, I had a hard time adjusting to the fact that the only available fish in the market -- bangus, hito and galunggong. Admittedly, when I was in Malabon, I never ate galunggong, and until now I don't eat hito. For a true-blue "Malaboner", I am a big fan of Maya maya, lapu lapu, sapsap, dalagang bukid, kalankaw, espada, bisugo, tanigue at talimusak.  There is always an assigned recipe for specific kinds of fish. Kalankaw and espada for frying; lapu lapu and dalagang bukid for pesa; bisugo and talimusak for paksiw; tanigue for sinigang sa sampaloc, sapsap for sinigang sa bayabas. 

Until I discovered Fisher Supermarket in Quezon Avenue!  They sell the freshest fish and seafood na pasado sa panlasa ko!  At a price that is very competitive to other groceries and even the local markets. Why? Because the owners of Fisher Supermarket get the supplies from their own fishing business. No middleman means lower prices.


Fisher Retail Inc. a family owned business which was named to reflect the Del Rosario family's well established roots in the fishing industry. The "fishing" idea started from IRMA Fishing and Trading Inc., which has been operating for over 40 years.

Fisher Retail Inco. is the owner and operator of Fisher Supermarket with branches at Quezon Avenue and Malabon. Fisher Supermarket is tagged as the FRESH ADVANTAGE that provides fresh, rare and affordable seafood and has a wide selection of exciting products.


Fisher Supermarket regularly holds sales, but the most awaited ones happen twice a year. One around march-april just in time for Holy Week called the RED BOAT SALE, and the other one is the BLACK OUT SALE.

As a blogger of four years, I am constantly in contact with my dear readers. Specially when I am sending them their prizes for my blog's giveaway.

This year, I started out a new venture. I joined a skincare brand, and started reselling Skin Can Tell mentholated lotion. I started by doing meet ups, but eventually, when the orders poured in, I had no choice but to deliver through couriers.

Sending blog giveaways and delivering orders on time - bring me to the subject of this article. What is the ideal delivery service for someone just like me, who is just starting it out as a reseller. I am looking for a delivery service that is efficient with good rates.

Thank you universe, I got invited to MrSpeedy blogcon - to learn more about their app and services.


Mr. Speedy is lowering down its rates. True to their motto of empowering the Filipino Entrepreneur, MrSpeedy aims to support small on-line sellers with a reliable and affordable service to help them be competitive in the current trend of instant delivery.

"We see that the trend right now for online selling is instant delivery, but it is hard for small online businesses to afford this service. By slashing down our prices, our goal is to arm our local businesses to be more competitive, especially against the dominating giants out there," said MrSpeedy’s Country Manager Jason Gaguan.

"We believe that this is the age of the Filipino Entrepreneur and we want to be part of that economic revolution. In everything we do, we always ask ourselves: Paano 'to makakatulong mag-palaki ng negosyo sa isang Instagram, Facebook o Carousell seller?"

MrSpeedy focuses on three things that they found out is most important for small online businesses: Delivery Price, Customer Support and seamless Cash on Delivery.

With MrSpeedy's pricing at PHP6/km, it is now the most affordable same-day delivery service as it is 40% cheaper than its competitors in Metro Manila. Alongside its affordable pricing, MrSpeedy has invested heavily in its customer support both in technology and headcount to ensure that their clients are heard and assisted in every step of their delivery- even going as far as  creating personal chat groups with their clients. Aside from this, the MrSpeedy Mobile App is very easy to use. Users just have to input the pick-up and delivery drop-off pin locations and input contact details for the said addresses, and they will be able to see the total delivery price – with no hidden charges. The simplicity of booking a delivery is what makes MrSpeedy’s service friendly to clients. To add to their online seller-centric approach is a Cash on Delivery service that boasts of a 12-24 hour remittance window. Since offering cash-on-delivery to their online stores, clients are pleased to note their businesses have gained an increase of up to 300%.

Asked about why online businesses should choose MrSpeedy versus other platforms, Gaguan answers, “Technology wise, we are very similar to our competitors, pero lumalamang kami in understanding what our customers need, nakikinig kasi kami. Very simple lang naman ang gusto namin, to give the cheapest price, mapadala ng mabilis ang package at sumagot kagad pag may concern ang customer at i-resolve instantly. We want things to be simple, we just want to be the best partner of small businesses in Manila.”

And speaking of small businesses, this is a shameless promotion too of my Skin Can Tell reselling business.  As of now, I cater to friends and colleagues who wants to order the product. I also ship to buyers in Metro Manila. And who knows... with Mr. Speedy same day delivery service which is very affordable - this small business might be big in the future!

One day, I heard the doorbell, and there was this rider delivering something at my house. My thought: Have I ordered anything? Wala ako maisip. So I accepted the order, and the rider said, "Ma'am COD po ito."  Hmm... I don't know what is this I am receiving, on top of that, I need to pay him pa. 

Told the rider, "who ordered"?  And he gave me my son's number, who is in school at the time of the delivery :)   Rider said, "ka text ko po siya ma'am".

And then, I understood what is happening. My son ordered something from Shopee, COD and forgot to tell me about it, and forgot to tell me I had to pay  :)

Oh well, I just have to accept that this is the millennial way to do shopping these days. And my son is hooked on Shopee. With Shopee's 11.11 sale, I won't be surprised if sudden and unexpected deliveries come my way again  :)
