So at 7 AM, I braved fighting the sleepiness of a holiday morning to meet my co-teachers for shopping.
I don’t even like shopping just for the heck of it, but I think I was just really curious about this shopping spot in Taytay which apparently sells really cheap clothes. Inside, there are probably a hundred of tiyangge stalls. Most of them sell the same type of clothes and the prices do not vary as much. Nonetheless, there are differences, so I suppose to get the most out of your money, better go around and ask around–a lot.
The place is actually massive because the shopping place is not only one area, but the entirety of the shopping place is several tents and areas, so it’s probably better to call it a shopping district. It only reminds me of Chatuchak Market in Thailand and those shopping districts in Taiwan’s night markets and in Ximending, although more compact.
So what did I buy?
Under clothes: cycling shorts (30 pesos), undershirt (50 pesos), and leggings (60) for 140 pesos. The leggings is cheaper than the one in Guadalupe, but I can buy one from an ukay-ukay for 50. Haha! Anyhow, I might come back. Or not. I mean, yeah it’s cheap, but the fashion is not really my taste, and I think I can spot a bargain of the same or similar price somewhere nearer like in Guadalupe or Market Market or an ukay-ukay.
Nonetheless, I did enjoy the company and food, so still a yay than a nay!
