The government declared this day to be a Special Non-Working Day due to ASEAN Summit held in Manila. And since it’s not often that we get this almost-long-weekend kind of holiday, I tagged Forester C to Taytay for some thrift-shopping.
I’ve been to Taytay Market once, years ago, and it was not the most pleasant experience since it was too hot to walk around, but I enjoy the shopping experience, since you get to find really cheap clothing items (you just have to make sure you have a quick eye to shop for good ones).
We toured the four clusters of shopping area at Taytay Market. We were sweating, because the temperature was terrible, but we were able to buy quite a lot. I was able to buy thirteen (13) items and my total spending was only P970.00!
What did I buy with Php970.00?
- Two pairs of Mickey Mouse printed shorts and tank top
- A gray training tights
- White spaghetti-strap top
- A black romper pants
- A polo dress
- Training top
- Two pairs of shorts
- Culottes in pink color
- A blouse for my Mom
- A black pencil cut skirt
- White printed shirt
I always make it a point to scour the whole area for items to buy, and I buy what I can buy since Taytay area is quite far from where I live. Besides, you wouldn’t need to bring hefty amount of money because you could already buy a lot with your P1,000.00.
I was a bit disappointed though, because I wasn’t able to chance upon some dresses which I can wear to Church or at work, but that gives me enough reason to visit Taytay again.
We reached the place at around 11 am, and we finished walking around at 2:30 p.m. We had lunch in the nearby pizza parlor, and decided to accomplish our bible study session for that day.
(And oh, I dropped by at Robinsons Galeria on my way home, and guess what? I was tricked (by myself) to buying make-ups again! I’ll tell you about it on my next post!)
