It’s almost Christmas now with only two more weeks to go and I’m savoring these days. This the season that I’ve been waiting for the whole year round. 🙂
And comes with Christmas is gift giving (or is it something created and hyped by commercialism?) but we are now in hard times so we try our best to look for cheaper options for our shopping. It is pricier in malls so Divisoria and bazaars (tiangge) are preferred by most. It is way more crowded in Divisoria so most people prefer bazaars and they are everywhere!
I for one doesn’t do a lot of shopping. It actually stresses me out. I only buy when I need it and I really like it but I don’t go around waiting for something to catch my eye. This is why I like bazaars. There are so many new, unique and innovative things to see! So many food to try you don’t usually find in malls. Of course most if not all things there are local products and we cannot find the types of schlage hardware there because there are mostly food and gift stuffs there.
I wanted to go to the bazaars in World Trade Center like last year but didn’t get to go. Next time maybe. That’s where I bought the charcoal stove above. (EDIT: As of Aug.22,2011, I have since found a new obsession and this stove has been left in storage. It’s still new, used maybe a couple of times. Whoever wants to buy this, please leave a comment and I will sell this at a low price.)
One I find really interesting is the Mercato Centrale in The Fort. I am just drooling with all the photos I see online, it’s just that I’m not used to that area so I’m still thinking if I should go.
