Last Saturday we went to Manila. The latter is 4-5 hours long drive from our place. So even we want to visit this place and shop all the time its hard. Maybe if I have my own car then there’s no excuse of going here once in a while. Last January 2013 when we last shopped here so almost a year after.
Our first destination was Divisoria. Christmas is fast approaching so we went there to find cheap clothes, bags and Christmas ornaments. We
already left the house at around 6am. We fetched my brother-in-law in Alabang because he’s working in that place. Then we headed to Divisoria and I think around 11am were already inside Divisoria. Since it was Saturday so I already expected many people but I never thought how huge the people that day. It’s hard to shop if there are many people plus if you have your kid with you.
So before doing our shopping we decided to eat our lunch first. We can’t find a seat for us and all were occupied already. It ends up eating pizza in the corner. Then we started our shopping. I can’t find the things I needed so I only purchased some items.
I felt dizzy already late in the afternoon because of the crowded people, tired of walking, having my daughter with me, her complains, I can’t take the different smell and my feet were aching already.
So here are my tips if you have planned of going to Divisoria don’t let your kid/s come with you. Well, I don’t have someone to take care of my daughter here so I really need to bring her with me. If you have someone to take care of your kid, I suggest not bring them in your shopping. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes especially if you will spend lots of time. Bring extra size bag so all your purchased will be put in one bag and no items will be left behind. Also list down everything you need so you won’t spend much time and bring foods if necessary especially if you have kid with you.
Anyhow, around 5pm we already finished our shopping and we headed to Mall of Asia. I will share some of our photos in this mall next time.
