Getting Ready for Summer at SM North EDSA

February is here and we can feel the change in the air. Just as we turn the page on our calendar to usher in a new month, the cool air of January suddenly vanishes and gives way to warmer weather. SM North EDSA’s Great Northern Sale happens at a fitting time as we make new purchases to get ready for the coming summer months.
For this sale weekend, my goal was to find denim pants, short sleeve blouses and flat sandals.
As usual when it’s sale time at SM, I try to go on the morning of the first day. Yesterday, I didn’t manage to get out of the house early, and arrived at the mall at a little past 11am.

During these sale events at SM, I try to go the SM Department Store first because this area gets crowded early. That’s because there are usually so many items on sale here, … Continue Reading →

Uniqlo In the North Metro

Finally, a Uniqlo store opens in northern Metro Manila! I had been waiting since summer for this.
My first encounter with Uniqlo was about two years ago when I was in New York City, sightseeing in the SoHo area with my sister. She pointed out to me a Japanese clothing store. With Japanese brands having this reputation of being expensive, and the store being located in trendy SoHo, I dismissed the brand as something I wouldn’t like and afford anyway so I didn’t even try to get in that store.
Fast forward to early this year, and reports surface that the SM group will be opening a Uniqlo store at the Mall of Asia.  Then, in a trip to Taipei in May this year also, the hotel that my Mom and I stayed in was near a building where there was a Uniqlo store in the basement. It was a huge store, … Continue Reading →
